Man this game brings back some memories. It's been a while since I've played so I'm just downloading the community pack again cause I got a new computer recently.

Nvm, problem doesn't happen if I host as a Dedicated server on the same box! Prob some kind of threading issue I guess. Yay!

Latest CP, ran Updater until it said up-to-date, tried manually running Ini Patcher from homepage

Yo! We're trying to get an old LAN server spun up for our house but people spike to 1,000 ping any time they die and can't respawn for like 6 full seconds. Ideas?

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

Porting SpeedBlast maps to PointBlast?

More

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.
