WTF? You say you want people who repeatedly harass people punished ..... but not van because he does it all the time?


The guy is toxic and abusive, but he's YOUR friend so its ok? No it's not.

Lol that's the thing, if we were to enforce rules the way some players on this thread are advocating regular players like van would inevitably be banned.

I really don't want to see anyone banned, but openly stating: we will not ban anyone because there are regular players who are complete assholes is just an open invitation to everyone to just keep going.

I honestly would not reccommend war2.ru to anyone who knew my family simply because I am too embarassed to be associated with such a purile group. Even just the main channel is severely NSFW ... or even family and friends... and I quite often swear in normal conversation.

If it takes banning someone to make people stop and think it might be necessary.

Are you suggesting that van is some kind of genuine social retard who honestly CAN'T stop abusing people?... because I'm assuming he just does it because he likes doing it and he can. This is like saying we can't ban map hacks because regular players use them.... no, you just hit them with the naughty stick until they stop bloody hacking.

I'd like to stick up for van here and suggest that he ISN'T some kind of retarded moron, and that he could stop being an utter prick if he put his mind to it.

We don't need more rules, just admins willing to take the issue seriously.

Thoughts anyone? ... van?

Van is not the source of the disease he is a symptom.

So far as I know him he has just attacked me with literally zero provocation just because I made a general post about etiquette on this forum. That make him absolutely a major source in my experience. Since then many people have said to me "oh that's just van he does it to everyone". To which my reply is ok well then screw him and the horse he rode in on.

But anyway, my position on this topic remains that we don't need another set of rules to argue over, we just need it to be generally accepted that being an asshole is not ok. Everyone has bad days or occasional arguments, but being continually toxic all the time is not ok.

By the sounds of things van is the epitome of the exact type of behavior we don't want. It's not cute or quirky or that's just van, it's a serial toxic abuser.... and the horse he rode in on.

Take for example van. Van is toxic but I would never report him. I actually play with him and expect him to be toxic, I even want him to be toxic because I know it is van!

Igognito is right I do not want to ban Van for saying these things I want him and these players to understand the difference and to try to not cross the line as much as possible.

WTF? You say you want people who repeatedly harass people punished ..... but not van because he does it all the time?

21) Mods & Development / Re: location of war2 icon
« on: March 18, 2018, 10:17:52 PM »
PE (exe, dll,....etc.) Icons are located in the resource section of the PE file. There are pleanty of programs that will allow you to add/remove/modify resources.

ResourceHacker by Angus Johnson is a good one.

Warcraft II bne.exe contains 2 copies of its icon - 16x16 and 32x32

The map editor has 2 icons, one for the editor program, and the one that is assigned to PUD files for the system to use.. and again 2 sizes of each, so 4 total.

For me, the 16px wc2 icons end up looking better on the taskbar/dock, even though they are blocky and horrible when you zoom in. The 32px ones work well for desktop icons.

if i were somewhat more cleverer

Don't be modest, Mousey. We know you're the clevererest  :critter:

id devise some kind of custom SMF plugin that allowed mirroring posts to the goldmine somehow rather than actually moving them there.

Yes this would be cool, but I'd just hassle people at SMF until someone else did it ;)

oh welllll. people forgot about the goldmine like 1 day after i set it up anyway,

Not so, I check it occasionally, but nothing has changed. There's kind of 2 flaws in the idea: 1) It requires that the admins (well... you) identify posts and include them there. 2) It requires that the community generate posts worthy of inclusion and not just introspective whining and flaming (Whoops I think I just did it again!).

... and the arcade rocks but I admit its been a while since I visited.

I never forgot mousey.

I just gave up trying to beat ur score at Tetris.

ikr? I will win a GOW tourney before you beat Mousey at tetris lol

It's very hard to make RULES about people being assholes. Sometimes it's even appropriate for a player to say something negative to another player. There can be cases of baiting, where troublemakers deliberatly taunt another player to get them to say something 'illegal' so they can report them... etc.

... in any case such rules tend to be SUBJECTIVE anyway, which means that the admins have to adjudicate on a case by case basis anyway - which ends up being pretty much what we have already.

That being said I would like to say that:

  A) Yes there is some really toxic attitude - i believe too much
  B) I'm sure it is a contributing factor to people leaving the game - it definately makes me log off sometimes
  C) I trust that the admins actually are trying to reduce this rubbish. It is bad, and it is a problem.

.... but back in 1998 blah blah blah ...

 ...people who wre BORN in '98 are now turning 20. It's a different world and a different internet, and if I was a kid I wouldn't want to play a game and get abused by a bunch of fat old assholes.

Yeah I believe they boys are discussing strategy here, thankfully they haven't posted any replays yet ;)

awesome ... my 47th attempt at a troll thread finally got some action!  ;D woo-hoo!
Thanks guys  :thumbsup:

I literally cant play any more. Sorry to disappoint people calling b.s. :(

It's ok nobody understands what the word "literally" means these days, so they won't care when you're back on tomorrow.

I could see you gaming full Hawkings-style with the robotic voice and all.... "WE'RE.UNDER.ATTACK".  ;D

28) Support Requests / can't log into backup server
« on: March 15, 2018, 12:40:17 AM »
I have a weird problem, I cant log into any of the backup servers.

I normally use the original BNE client, but I have also tried with CE and even with my firewall totally disabled.

CE connected and downloaded a newer version ok.

the "if server is down" just goes to "checking versions" then kicks me back to the connect screen.

both mousetopher servers give me an error dialog "unable to connect to battle.net..."

This is all exactly the same with my BNE client and with a freshly installed and updated CE client. But I can get on to the main server NP. Its really strange.

anybody got any clues what's going on?

Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



"Battle.net gateways"=hex(7):31,00,30,00,30,00,31,00,00,00,30,00,32,00,00,00,\
"Registration Version"=dword:00000001
"Registration Authority"=dword:XXXXXXXX
"Client ID"=dword:XXXXXXXX
"Client Token"=dword:XXXXXXXX

"Join Filter"="Show All"
"Clicked Link"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Battle.net\Recent Games]

--- EDIT ---

I think it could be related to me logging onto USEAST recently .... perhaps something has been changed?
is the client ID the same for everyone?

( obviously I have put XXXXXXXX over the dword values above )

* I have re-run the CE installer with the re-write gateways checked.

« on: March 14, 2018, 07:24:55 PM »

Starting tomorrow I will no longer be injecting heroin into my eyeballs or between my toes. It has been fun doing it for the last 20 years, but after I do up this bag I have now, I am definately quitting forever.

Also I will no longer be playing wc2 in my sleep. I have decided to quit from the time that I go to sleep until at least the time that I subsequently wake up from said slumber. If anyone notices me sleep-gaming please bitch slap me repeatedly until I wake up and log off.

Thanks for your support.
