1) Mods & Development / CPU saver plugin
« on: July 10, 2019, 12:44:17 PM »
iL asked me to have a look at this so I made one.

Seems to work ok. My CPU usage shows 0 most of the time.

Have tried it in a couple of games with no lag.

Please test  :)

-- edit --

Have made this 2 plugins. There is 'C' for Channel and 'G' for Game.

You can use either one or both of them. If anyone has problems using this in-game, they can use the 'C' only and give their CPU a rest between games, although I am having no problems using it.

Note: The "Game" starts in the pre-game lobby, everything else is "Channel".

Sick of all the snide accusations. You want some actual evidence? Here it is.

7) General Discussion / Good or Evil?
« on: February 03, 2019, 06:39:08 AM »

I was talking to Sepi about this yesterday, so I thought I'd post it here. There are crossovers with game theory and life in general.

If anyone here is into thinking and hasn't heard Radiolab I highly reccommend it, particularly the earlier stuff. It's been being produced since 2004. Here's a couple of episodes I was talking about.

The Good Show (Dec 14, 2010)    [MP3]

The Bad Show    (Jan 9, 2012)     [MP3]

They look at being "good" and "bad" and discuss the advantages/disadvantages.

Radiolab generally doesn't preach, push any particular agenda, or even draw any conclusions - they just present facts and research in an interesting and thought provoking way.

*PLEASE NOTE* - This is not in any way related to religion.

8) Server.War2.ru / Van for admin
« on: September 13, 2018, 01:28:49 AM »
I think Van would be a much better admin than tk.

These days noobs just don't get called worthless piles of shit enough, and I also think it would be awesome to see some hard-core lynch mob racism in admin blue print in the channel - but the main reason is because I think the focus has started to drift from what we should really all be thinking about: Tractors.

There's just not enough tractor related games and conversation on the server any more and I think appointing Van as an admin would go a long way towards rectifying this.

Perhaps if tk spends a lot of time hanging out in games and the channel abusing and threatening people, then goes and practices rebuilding Massey Ferguson engines for a bit then he might have a chance, but at the moment its no contest.

P.S. You all suck you bunch of newbie scrubs.

9) General Discussion / Carjacking Aus Style
« on: June 30, 2018, 05:34:54 AM »
Here's what happens when you hit an adult Kangaroo that's in mid-air.

That's a dead roo in the back-seat after going through the windshield. The driver's seat is on the right-hand side in Aus, so you can see here that this roo totally ripped the passenger side headrest clean off and bent the seat back on the way through.

Luckliy there was no passenger at the time and the driver survived. He was also lucky that the roo died on impact or it could well have disemboweled him trying to get out of the car.

NSW Ambulance said at least 83 car crashes resulting in injuries had involved kangaroos so far this year and warned of an expected sharp rise in that number over winter.

10) Mods & Development / Handy PUD bitmap maker.
« on: May 27, 2018, 01:47:56 AM »
Looks like mostly my SS grabber is only being used to make pics of maps - not really in game SS, so this is probably much easier to use.

TuPaC asked for this so I just did a very quick and nasty hack of my pud editor project and made it a console app.

Just unzip then drop a .pud file onto pudpic.exe and it will make a .bmp file, without having to use war2 at all.

128x128 full map bitmaps are over 16MB so you will probably want to convert to png or jpg or whatever.

There's no error checking - if you give it a rubbish file it will just crash.

UPDATED 9/2018

Will now resize &/or save to jpeg format (see below).

11) Server.War2.ru / a new name
« on: April 04, 2018, 03:39:13 AM »
I don't know who all these other fools are, Mikoo and Miker. but I am the only one. I might have to change my name to snugglebear or some such shit.

That's a real dilemma buddy. Let's get the whole community together and brainstorm this issue.

12) Mods & Development / Mike O'Brien
« on: March 31, 2018, 02:01:47 AM »
Just noticed that in addition to designing the MOPAQ (mpq) format and tools, Mike is also the sole original author of the storm library (storm.dll). How did I never notice that before? The guy's a freakin legend.  :-*

13) Website & Forum Discussion / [done] So, the Arcade section you say?
« on: March 20, 2018, 03:19:26 AM »
@mousEtopher you probably shouldn't have said anything, but now I've got an ugre to play arcade games all of a sudden lol. Is it much work to include it in the new skin?  :D  :critter:

14) Support Requests / [done] 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.

15) Server.War2.ru / Quitting forever.
« 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.
