The cursor not being visible over the map is only a cosmetic issue

I thought that cosmetics is in the topic start message. :)

But mouse cursor not a cosmetic:
when someone recording video or streaming with commentary, he can point at lobby minimap positions with that cosmetic stuff ;)

Or report the problems so they can be fixed

Two issues:

Is there a way to ignore "Doubleclicking" on window header, so let window keep its normal size? Especially because no way to return in previous size. :/

Being in game Main menu and clicking "close" on window button resulting absolutely "lost/hang" mouse, hotkeys still working. Current solution: alt+enter then back to previous.

What's going on with that sound folder? Does that already work

Yes it will work simply placed in war2 folder (with saved directories structure)


Is it possible to hear when someone sends messages in lobby and/or leaving?

here two "soundpacks" that may be useful. (external 'sound' folder works for countdown, etc)

isn't the cursor always drawn on top of the preview and visible?
Sorry, I forgot to note that I had in mind the latest(?) version of dll from lamb, when i tried it, the map is drawn over the cursor. :-\

If I was spending any time developing it I would probably add a hotkey to suppress the map display or something.

It appears iL has used an early version of LC.dll in the 4.5 release. If you want you can replace it with the current version (attached).
* LC.dll (42.5

Nope showing all 96
Way to check what's going on is:
1. reinstall 4.6 to separate folder
2. pack all folder war2combat46 to archive (using 7zip)
3. when problem appears compare archived folder with existing, to check which files differ

ps: installing into "program files" not the best idea

It worked once, then it quit working the next day

Then check folder: "maps\ladder\ ...Random IronMan Duel'
there must be 96 maps w many spaces at name start

maybe some strange software deleted some of them)

Yes 4.6 version It won't even let me host it because it says I don't have all the maps

iron can not be hosted if user have custom icon

but someone with custom still can join in modes 2,3,4

---------------
II. New Game Types. Exclusive for War2Combat 4.6 and newer.
Attention: If you try to enter such a game using an incompatible version, then, at best, you will be thrown back to the channel.

1. New simple modes:
"Melee with Units" - same as "Melee", but with starting Units specified in the Map Editor;
"Free For All with Units" - the same modification for FFA mode;
"One on One AV with Units" - the same modification for useless "One vs One" mode;
"One on One AV allowed" - allowed allies and vision in "One vs One" mode(be default it is forbidden)
Why need that modes:
a. Now you can play with units specified in the editor, using regular(normal) units specs, and you not forced to use for it UMS or TvB modes.
b. The opportunity arising from this - to play real FFA on chop and some another maps with predefined units.
c. The opportunity to play any map with standard specs and MapDef Units even with Comps.


2. New Iron Man Ladder. Improved and bugfixed.
Attention: Do not uncheck "New Iron Man" option when installing War2Combat, otherwise the new IronMan will not be available to you even with the new game version.
When you start the game through "War2Launcher.bat" or after using "war2fix_limits.bat", you will at least have access to changing resources when creating the game and the ability to enter such games, but ...
Important:
those who have a non-standard icon on the channel, even after all the unlocks, will only be able to access Iron Man, but will not be able to host it themselves.
To host such a game yourself, you need to return the standard icon - ask some admin to return the standard icon.
Note, that You need to relogin to the server for icon changing take effect. Or just Create/Join some another Game Lobby then leave back to Channel.

The essence of the old IronMan mode:
Classic settings imply speed Faster, Low resources and a Random Map from the Ladder folder (13 fixed confrontations in total)
The old version has known bugs, due to which it has not gained much popularity.

Changes in the new IronMan mode:
35 Maps(mostly tweaked), 48 duel versions or 96 fixed fair confrontations in total.
Maps from this set ("\Ladder\...Random IronMan Duel") can be played in regular mode, but they are exclusively duel maps with No watchers.
A few additional maps "runners-style" have been added: two for GOW and one for POS, where at the game start you can choose to which mine to run.

Additional "Iron Man Ladder" changes.
Now there are 4 subtypes, which can be selected in the "disconnects" field, where it says "Counts as loss".
Important: do not pay attention that all four elements are called "Counts as loss", just before creating the game, select from the list the desired position from 1 to 4:
1 - "Standard" mode. One Peon, Random player color.
(players with non-standard icon can NOT even join such games. Ask some admin to return the standard icon if you need to host IronMan.)

another three options (2,3,4) are available for any player to enter, but only a player with a standard icon can host:
2 - "Standard" unlocked. One Peon, Random player color.
3 - "Iron With Units". Map Default Units, Random player color.
4 - "Iron With Units Red vs Blue". Map Default Units, Fixed player colors - Red vs Blue.

The DJ scribble/scratch sound it makes when the game starts is not good. how do i turn it off
how do i fix that
delete or rename file:
plugin\Sounds\StartGame.wav

or replace with one you like best

it says that I don't have all of the Iron Man maps.
All have 4.6 version? Older can't join 4.6 iron.

Appearance can be slightly improved by adding a 3px frame to smooth overall picture


Also maybe to stretch map optionally to 256 pix [maybe with some more calculations using more pud tiles info for better result]
Lobby mod have almost enough room for it. (but need to find checkbox status in memory to let plugin know which mode the user has selected at the moment)
here is a draft of how it might look

I think that used to be a feature because you couldn't see the password of the game with the old version of the plugin+older combat. But yeah, now it isn't needed anymore and the plugin should be updated so the minimap doesn't disappear anymore when you type


But the cursor(Orc Hand) must keep drawn OVER the map image, elseway it will be bad and uncomfortable appearance.

Here you can compare original minimap vs tweaked:

More EQ juggling words - less his words weight.


So please just do your job
If this is a JOB - go PAY him for it, other way - shut up.


This is what we call having a real opinion and stand for it.
This is what we call blatant substitution of conditions "on the fly".
So make thread with new rules discussion and voting
or just
put your rigged "opinion" back to where you pulled it from.


... better get rid of ...
...your instructions.

You already showed himself as big scrub here:

Stop your shit and get real life, finally.
