Updated to PhpBB 3.3

I just upgraded this forum to v3.3. Custom themes were reset.

Note: I'm very likely to set all boards to read-only and disable user registration in the future. I'd like to simplify any administration load to as little as possible.

Re: Nav Beacon Naming via console?

Sorry, I think that used a network-specific interface variable to work. Could be wrong, though

Re: Steamspy data will be blocked - BZ1/2 stats archived

Update: per this updated guesstimate, and downloading the attached .csv file, updated and estimated numbers for BZ 98 Redux are 38993 players, and BZ Combat Commander are 10304 players. That .csv is based on data available on July 1st, 2018.

Re: Star Trek Armada 2 Modding

If those strings don't appear in any Battlezone 2 files -- use Pak Explorer as a can opener for BZ2's files -- then they were added specifically for that game. I added a few hundred parameters to .odf/.aip files during Battlezone 2 v1.3's development. While the .odf reader code may have been shared ...

Re: [Bug Report] Progression Error In The Last ISDF Campaign Before Alternate Ending Decision Point

As I've said in other threads, 1.3 development has ceased. If you wish to report a bug in Battlezone: Combat Commander, try here.

Also, bumping your own threads after only a day and with almost no other board activity is rude.

Steamspy data will be blocked - BZ1/2 stats archived

Per this article , Valve is tweaking game library visibility. That was used by Steamspy to guesstimate the number of sales. However, it currently appears that Valve has locked down your library visibility, but left "friends list, badges, Steam Level, showcases, comments, and group membership&qu...

Re: What I'm working on has been revealed

My employer, Certain Affinity, just tweeted this announcement , noting our collaboration and work with Wargaming on World of Tanks update 1.0.

And yes, I have been involved with this as part of my day job at Certain Affinity.

Re: Battlezone 2 Redux is in the works

Just like 1.2 work ceased when its code was used as the basis for 1.3, the Battlezone Combat Commander on Steam/Gog uses the 1.3 code as a basis. 1.3 has seen its last development, its last patch.

Re: 1.3.7.2 and new release on Steam/Gog

The code I gave Big Boat was a bit past what was in the 1.3.7.2-b132ak branch. I had started on some new features that would have been part of a 1.3.8.x series, but none of that would have affected gameplay. I helped Big Boat long enough to help them get things compiling and explain things, then par...

Re: 1.3.7.2 and new release on Steam/Gog

1.3.7.2 is not compatible with version "1.3.7.2-b132ak", linked in a sticky on this forum. b132ak was close to what a 1.3.7.3 release would have been, but I never did that once the 2.x effort started.

Re: 1.3.7.2 and new release on Steam/Gog

All BZ2 1.0 thru 1.3.x builds can play MP only with the exact same version.. This helps reduce resyncs (checking gamestate), bad assets, etc.
