Hi guys,


Before I can finish the ladders I need to import all the maps since I need the map pool :)

I just downloaded steam. I ll provide soon steam as featured mod.

I noticed that upnp can cause connection issues so better switch it off. It works better without. My connection's test tells you straight if you got an asymetric NAT or not

Still remain the uploaders to finish before refactoring being completed


Regards

P.S: after the lobby's work remains the content's work: new featured mods, maps. But also bugs fix mods for the 35XX series. Finally, the clan war to add more depth to the old GW concept game. Quite a big roadmap !! :D

Well, I just like this game and I want people have an alternative to faf since steam is not really a lobby.
You re doing a great job too ! :)

I have still a lot of maps ( around 50 ) to work on :x

Then rework the remaining featured mods( 3596, 3598, steam ) before updating the server


Regards


P.S : I hope to be done tomorrow with this. Then this week end release the ladders

Hi man,

Isn't the real problem that the *game* won't be supported by future versions of Windows, ending it once and for all? I appreciate the work on your web-based lobby, looks Cool. But the FAF lobby does exist and function. If you had spent 4 years coding an open source Supreme Commander with the same game mechanics, wouldn't that do more to protect the game we love, from going the way of the Dodo?

Let's start a petition (or another?) to get SC's source code, even an old backup from some original dev. Then young developers with lots of time and an empty resume, might use the code and do impressive things with it. Following the examples of Doom, Quake, and Linux ;-)

Cheers,
Zappa

Hi zappa,


Well It has always been my wish to get the source code somehow. But then may be an open letter to Chris Taylor would have been the better and the fattest choice ...


debate still open though ...



So sad i don't have time right now to continue the dev on the lobby :-/ lots of change lately in my private life ... need to fix that first.

i didn't play the game for ages now ... looking some replays time to time ... and it is pretty sad to see how a balance can change a game that much but though some ppl like it better now ...

I saw the last video with Chris taylor and someone asked him why there is no flying eng !!! :-) it has always been my wish that each factory span it's own kind of eng
air: flying eng
land: like now
navy: amphibious( like wagner )

:D

Hi guys,



long time ...


Sorry that I could not work on the lobby so near of a stable release. Had to move flat and got a baby some days ago ... Imagine the challenge :D


There is a good news ! java 9 has just been released and offers interesting features for the lobby :)
