Re: 144Hz monitors and nvidia 3dvision

Are there still issues with the depth of the cockpit like back in 2002?

Re: Battlezone II Remodeled 1.0.8 released 2/21/17

People tend to think too linerally. It's a big universe out there with a lot going on either at the same time or happened in the past may have happened in the present or future or whenever, especially with wormholes springing up here and there leading every which way and when. Yup, I agree whole-he...

Re: Battlezone II Remodeled 1.0.8 released 2/21/17

My original attempts to create a BZ timeline had several forks. There was even a fork between Huscar's and Avatar's pre-histories. Eventually one timeline became very prominent and that timeline became what we called the HB Timeline because it's the timeline all HB works target. By sticking with thi...

(Sadly a dead project that had most of it's ideas cannibalized by the newer FE timeline stuff.)

Re: Battlezone II Remodeled 1.0.8 released 2/21/17

It's not about retconning other ppl's work, it's about including other ppl's work in a super-work, at least in part. Sometimes the way the works are constructed this isn't possible without saying "in this universe that happened differently" even though that is a sub-optimal action. (Actually that so...

Re: Battlezone II Remodeled 1.0.8 released 2/21/17

Mainly, Neilk1 wrote something about major changes, and that was the main thing that bothered/scared me – and granted the changes he spoke of may not actually conflict with my mod itself … I hope. Putting words in my mouth! I said "large adjustments", that's totally not scary! It actually have noth...

Re: Battlezone II Remodeled 1.0.8 released 2/21/17

AHadley, I don't think there's any reasonable way to say that the Dark Planet has data-banks to contain the information about Core in the first place, but there is an alternative. It might be that whatever alchimated the original Core also had the information about it spread through the wormhole lin...

Re: Battlezone II Raknet Proxy (checks multiple servers)

In an optimal system NatNeg would be what you use and UPNP is the fallback, but in our situation it seems UPNP is the more reliable element. I've wanted BZ2 to support multiple servers for some time. Back when we were on gamespy I did inquire about plugin/dll support, but that would have been a doos...

Re: Battlezone II Raknet Proxy (checks multiple servers)

A big note is that everyone has to use the same NatPunchthrough server or NatNeg won't work. Matchmaking though, that's a lot more flexible. I need to rewrite IonDriver's rewrite though so instead of timing out remote calls it does them off the request thread so they're there for the next GET.

Re: Battlezone II Raknet Proxy (checks multiple servers)

It shouldn't act any differently than BZ2 currently does. By default configuration the proxy will try to get a game list from IonDriver, failing that MatesFamily, and failing that KebbzNet. By default configuration the proxy will try to post a game to MatesFamily, and failing that KebbzNet, and fail...

Re: Battlezone II Raknet Proxy (checks multiple servers)

Updated to version 1.1.0.0 which has correct DELETE handling. I should have known something was wrong when GSH's server was replying with 500.

Battlezone II Raknet Proxy (checks multiple servers)

I've released a Raknet proxy. This should help the current situation, though if the NatNeg server is down you'll need your ports open or for UPNP to open them. Sadly, NatNeg is not a simple thing and everyone needs to be talking to the same NatPunch server for it to work. The code for this proxy is ...

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

I use dreamhost now for stuff like http://battlezone.report and it's been pretty stable, but I'm on redfern. You're probably on a different server than I am.

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

I noticed that the games list was a bit flaky the last 2 days, probably related. It seems to be back but the dummy game GSH normally has up is gone. I had to rejigger the Discord game list bot so it would properly understand the server's dummy game being gone.
