Thank you for working on this. Could you make it possible to host a 1v1 map with 8 spots? That would make a huge improvement to game!

fixed graphicks for those lists a little.

and fixed observing comps ffa.
now you can obs when there is only comps in game and you as obs win game only when some team of comps win.
(only when comps is still alive that are all allied betwen themselves)
actually dunno if this function can be useful but U8 asked about this very much so i maked it.

Okay guys there is info for ALL

we just tested with Equinox and it seems like old CNC ddraw.dll can cause bugs and some things will not be working.
so if you use old ddraw then better to download new War2Combat from site and reinstall.

Mistral, does your obs feature work with any PVPGN or only with modified one? We usually use local old PVPGN server for LAN playing and I wonder if we can use new combat versions?

should work on any cuz its not from pvpgn itself.
and should not matters if war2 is combat or not - only matters if its exe version 2.0.2.0 - so GOG will not work cuz its 2.0.2.1

Zelya напиши мне в вк я покажу как установить мод на pvpgn

While the ideas are flowing, I wanted to give some feedback on the obs feature I've been meaning to say.

It's obviously great. Everyone uses it and loves it. The only thing I think that could be improved is mid-game obs. Historically, when people say, "last", the other team allies them with no vision allowing them to watch the rest of the game, with their teams vision only, without being eliminated. (also you doofs do it when someone has 20 blds still for some ungodly reason- side rant)

It's more of a unwritten rule that when you are obsing (saying "last" before the new feature came around) you can still only see your team and it's okay to verbally help them. But when you use the new obs feature mid-game, you can now see everyone's vision. So, now it's like an ethical dilemma because now you really shouldn't say anything.

So, if there could be something where, when you use the obs feature, it only shows who you are allied to. There is probably a better way though, as you can ally someone before you say "obs me". It would also screw over the people in melee who did not get obsed in the lobby on accident. It was an example but, you get the point.

You cant tip if you see all map, maybe except your peons are blocked, you care about stats?

Equinox - the dumbest person in this game, do not argue with an idiot, because he will bring you to his level and overcome with experience

You shouldn't tip your own team if you see the whole map, right.

Could you though? Sure.

Could you if you can't see them? No

I'm not sure what this has to do with stats.
