Is the master server for the community pack down? i am asking because it keeps timing out when trying to view populated servers, yet the weird stats on the news page and the MOTD still show.

My sister and I just loaded up the game for the first time in years and played a few rounds, thanks a ton for keeping the master server running!

This was a decision made to support updates to the renderer. Older PCs don't like the new D3D rendering tricks, but Nerf 300 will have another version altogether.

FYI, on classic PCs the upgraded Direct3D driver crashes with an out-of-memory error. I had to copy the original D3D driver to get it to run.

really enjoying the additions to the game, especially the extra maps. Only recently discovered this game but I'd been playing Unreal Tournament for years and this was a breath of fresh air.

Working good now! Thanks again. Sorry for the slow reply.

@Rajada You'll want to update the download links to point to the HTTPS URLs.

Rajada - 04/20/2022 - 05:56

It should be resolved either way now, so let me know if it works out.

When i would go to download it, i would be sent to a blank page with nothing happening whatsoever . I appreciate the direct link greatly, im excited to try it

Porting SpeedBlast maps to PointBlast?

Some of the vanilla SpeedBlast arenas (Orbital, Sky and Luna come to mind) seem suitable for PointBlast conversions. Perhaps the developers of the game intended that to be the case at first but switched to more linear arenas in the middle of development.

Sadly, I have no experience with NerfEd or any external level editor, and I'm not planning to get into map creation anytime soon. So this is basically a request for Raj - is it possible to port the vanilla SpeedBlast maps to PointBlast?

It is possible, and not very hard. It really comes down to does it play well as a PM arena? Additionally, I wouldn't know what to title them. PM-AR-Sky sounds rather silly.

I was thinking putting the word "Speed" before them, such as "PM-SpeedSky". Regarding suitable maps for conversion, Orbital, Sky, and Luna seem like good candidates; the rest are too linear in design.

So I was messing around with this, and found that if you spawn bots with PointBlast logic, they sort of play AR maps like PM ones. But in order for it to really play like PM, you need to revise lots of pathing and spread the playerstarts around. The playerstarts are obvious but the pathing gets a little complicated at times.
