I love coming back to this site every year or 2 and seeing that it's still here. Like a little nostalgia timecapsule

Basically, the progressive march of updates to HTML slowly killed it, made it incompatible to run. We technically still have it archived, but it's not really possible to browse it.

So what happened to the old site?

Oh NAB, I don't think I have been active in the NAB community since like 2008

Rajada - 02/07/2020 - 22:51

Indeed it does

Oh hey this website still exists.

20 years of NAB!

Ok, thanks.

I recommend the first option, as it patches multiplayer and everything.

Either install the Community Pack, light or full, or do it manually with the NerfEd OCX library files.

Reimplementiation of NAB Online?

Hey,

I recently rediscovered one of my childhood games, NAB. Unfortunately, it appears impossible to play online with others due to the master server being down. I am thinking of reverse engineering the way the NAB client interprets the communication from the server, in an effort to have a global NAB server that any user can connect to.

Obviously, the master server is hard coded in the program. Instead of modifying the exe directly, I was thinking of doing a simple hosts file redirect to a server. Said server will serve as a 'population server' and a NAB server. Of course, for this to work, people would have to do the hosts redirect (can be done in a .bat file easily.)


Would anyone like this? Has anyone any resources which may help? pcap capture of communication with the population server would be amazing.

This has already been done by the Unreal community. In fact, it's even easier than you suggest. The fix is implemented in the Community Pack, and Ini Patcher utility. Basically, the traffic is redirected to a new master server.

Check it out here:

By the way, do you have programming experience as your post suggests?

Okay, I had no clue that was implemented in the community pack. I figured that it was only textures and maps.

Yes, I have several years of experience.

Yeah, right now I'm working on an even better version of our Community Pack, but I am looking for some programmers to help make a new version of the auto-update utility, hence why I asked.

Let me mess with the community pack a bit. How would you prefer to communicate?
