1) Server.War2.ru / Re: War2Combat 4.6 Released. Happy Birthday, Warcraft II!
« on: December 11, 2019, 03:54:50 AM »
Much obliged for a new version, here's some issues I've found.

What's not good?

1) Map Editor has stopped working, at all. Even my old one in an old WC2 folder, I haven't touched any tome.1 files or something, this window just popped up.

2) Mini Map in the lobby. It disappears when I type something in the chat, and appears again when I touch the mouse.
Maybe its a plugins problem, not 4.6, but I've never used these plugins before, so I dunno.

3) Also there are some glitches when you making a game in those drop-down list boxes (game type, resources, 4v4, etc...). Like when it was with old DDRAWs.

What's good?

Insight 1.04 with an autorecord script works well.
The latest non-glitch WarVideo also works well.

So I'm staying on 4.6 version, hope I'll fix my map editor somehow.
1. make sure you checked the checkbox "map editor" in installation options.
It actually installs map editor if it haven't been installed already, but it not be checked by default if map editor is already installed (and probably broken).
2. That it a feature, not a bug. Questions to Lambhops, it's his plugin.
3. As i understand that's related to ddraw. If that is a problem, try to copy "Warcraft II Config.exe" from previous combat and run it, selecting GDI (or OpenGL). That will overwrite previous ddraw.dll.

For some reason i can no longer open war2. I had 4.5 and the screen would just be black and shutdown after 5 seconds. So i updated to 4.6 and same thing. Whats up?
I had the same issue Bara is having when I tried to install the last version before this one so I finally said fuck it uninstalled it and reinstalled an old version.
No idea, but i'd say try to change options:
1. ddraw: Try to use ddraw config tool: switch between GDI, OpenGL, DirectDraw.
2. plugins. Also try to switch between options of exe: clean, gog, plugins.

At least good steps to localize the problem.

they shutdown the "kraken" API and you now need to use the "helix" API, had to update a few things recently too...

New one: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5
fois, do you know what to do with that and how to rewrite it?
I absolutely have no idea how twitch works and how to change it's API in our scripts...
Maybe you can assist?

Keep in mind people that this update does NOT add Superwarlat which everyone has been talking about. While Superwarlat makes the game's units respond far faster than with the normal Warlat, all this current update does is add Autowarlat, which simply automatically turns on the slow old Warlat we've known for many years now.

It is most likely that iL will include Superwarlat in a future update.

This current update 4.6 might cause lag in some big games, in this case, press F5 and enable High latency while in the game.

@iL You should make the next installer automatically delete Autowarlat if it includes Superwarlat, since it is superseded by Superwarlat which also includes a patch for these same bytes of code but takes a smarter decision on whether to enable it or not.
The main problem is superwarlat is not compatible with war2insight, i think that is a thing that should be fixed before including plugin into combat.
I think it's not the question should be resolved in 1-2 days while releasing combat.
I think we can get some solution in a 2-3 weeks. After that is will be a good time to release new combat including superwarlat.

Thx, for fast reply.
Btw I tried today war2tv and there were also errors. Couldn't scroll to switch channels.
Not sure if it's me or the page. I tried just one browser and didn't refresh.
I was looking for EQ Chanel.
mousEy said something changed it their API, so need to fix something...
I have no idea what exactly, so, tv looks like not working now...

Thx for report! Need to fix that asap!

Just updated the plugin, there is now a new sound included that will trigger when the host is starting the game so you don't miss the game start anymore
Nice idea! That's what i thought about: these 5 beeps are not being played then your are in alt-tab, very unlikely. Great if you can listen the game being started.

thats the reason for freecraft only tie they got to blizzard is the sprites english voice acting..which the game ought to be remade in the wyrmsun universe your tottally away from blizzard
What's wyrmsun? Completely different gameplay than war2?
I look into wargus because it's designed to make the most similar gameplay as war2.
I don't care alot about copyrights because we play war2 here all the time and blizzard never care.
I think opensource game looks similar to war2 could be the most interesting thing.

what dosbox gives you is the natural war2 on all devices off the bat

doom2 has showed you whats ports are
id software opened the source code for doom2, that allowed to make all the ports.
blizzard didn't

Also about wargus:
I talked to wargus team about this build:
they don't want this to called "Wargus".

Wargus is absolutely legal tool to extract resources from war2 + scripts for it.
Stratagus is absolutely legal opensource engine for different games.
Neighter wargus nor stratagus include any kind of proprietary resources.

So, here's my new build:
This game is not a War2. This is a game looks like war2, based on wargus+stratagus engines.
Lastest versions, night build. All the exising updates included. All the binary resources extracted from Blizzard Warcraft II.
Works fine or both english and russian languages:

« on: December 07, 2019, 07:43:23 PM »
il or anyone listening ..all war2+dosbox needs is allies vision...way to hard for me but it is the other warcraft 2 engine..or just play it the old way which maybe best.

for history
I don't see any reasons to waste the time for such research .
Also another problem was very quick scroll in DOS war2...

I hope stratagus will get a place if wargus team will finish something playable.
There's an active team who continue to work on it. That's why i build the lastest release and shared it here.

Just need some feedback from people who know war2 and like it, to make wargus better.
