Re: This is a general post from someone who's got a lot of questions.

I simply cannot figure out how to open the Pak file in order to fine the files for BZ2 Remodeled
BZ2 Pak explorer is a good canopener for those .pak files.

Updated to phpBB 3.2

I've just updated the underlying software for this board to phpBB 3.2. All phpBB board themes/styles need to be updated -- and re-uploaded by me -- for 3.2.x, so in the very short term, I've temporarily reset all users back to Prosilver (default) theme. If there is a theme available at https://www.p...

Dreamhost server upgrade 2017/10/17

The Dreamhost server that runs *.matesfamily.org is scheduled for an update on 2017/10/17. Hopefully there will be no issues noted. Posting this with as much advance warning as I've been given.

Re: Sticky: Why a 'Battlezone 3' is unlikely

Update, 2017/09/17. This information is years late in the making, my point #2 above, "code/name licensing issues" for Battlezone has been resolved. The Battlezone name and rights were sold from Atari to Rebellion in 2013. See articles such as http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/07/23/auctioned-atari-ip...

Re: BZ2 SP Mission Fixes

The source code's been out for years. RD's the only one making the effort to actually work on it. Anyone else is also welcome to try.

Re: 144Hz monitors and nvidia 3dvision

Which BZ2 patch are you using? Use 1.3.7.2 patch for the best DirectX features.

Re: Dreamhost routing issues since 2017/02/17

Things seem better now. DH did tweak which MySQL backend is used for this site, and probably also tweak some other backend things. If this seems good for a few more days, I'll un-sticky this thread.

Re: Dreamhost routing issues since 2017/02/17

Things are still down for many users. Including my connection from home <-> Dreamhost. Their tech support has been .. subpar .. during this period.

Re: Maximum Screen Resolution?

BZ2, stock, latest patches, should work just fine at all sorts of resolutions, up to 65536x65536 and/or widescreen. 1.3.7.x supports FOV adjustment and up to 5x UI scaling that should make the UI reasonably sized at 4K. If you are using a mod, please remember this rule: mods need to be adjusted for ...

Re: Dreamhost issues 2017/02/17..20

My home box repros the problem just fine, work connection ... works. Until now, Dreamhost has been very responsive and stable. Not so much now. I'm going to wait and see how they recover from this.

Re: Dreamhost issues 2017/02/17..20

All I've gotten from DH support is an email that they've got a large volume of requests in, so they're slipping past their targeted 24 hour support times. The long weekend (for those that are Civil Servants Masters) has probably added to the workload.

Re: Dreamhost issues 2017/02/17..20

Hm. Not quite resolved yet. My work computer connects fine. Home doesn't. I can connect from work computer -> home, but not the reverse. Many sites disable pings for reduced load, etc. I use a text webbrowser ( lynx http://bzforum.matesfamily.org ) to verify things. That's a lot more heavyweight of ...
