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

My progress isn't saved when I quit and re-launch the game

Issue Description:

Game progress is not saved, and after quitting and rebooting the game, progress has reverted to an earlier state.

Solution #1 - Unlock ini save file:

Generally, User Account Controls are to blame for many configuration issues in Nerf ArenaBlast. You might find that your "User.ini" file which holds your save data (un-encrypted if you'd like to try to restore your lost progress) is being saved to a weird directory:

C:\Users\YourUserNameHere\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Atari\Nerf\System

Due to User Account Controls, this file is not being saved properly in this directory (this is where you installed the game):

C:\Program Files\Atari\Nerf\System

In the System directory, do the following for any neccessary ini files such as Nerf.ini and User.ini (note that if you do not have file extensions visible the icon of an ".ini" file looks like a notepad with a small gear):

Look at the ".ini" files present, if any of them have a small gold lock on the icon you have a problem. You have to right click the file, select "Properties", go to the "Security" tab, and hit "Edit...".

Now if you see "Users" in the top list, you got lucky, and need only select it and check the box in the lower list for "Full control". If your Users group is not present, you need to create it first. Do so by clicking the "Add..." button, then typing "users" into the white text box and clicking "Check Names". This should change the text to the name of your computer followed by a "\Users". Click "OK" and with this newly created user-group selected, check the box for "Full control".

You may want to make sure full control is applied to any other user groups in the list, especially Administrator. Click "OK" a couple more times and that's it.

Now perform these steps for the System and Nerf folders.

Optional Solution #2 - Moving and restoring changes made:

This next part is optional. If you wish to carry over any changes to your settings, simply copy over the ".ini"s from the incorrect directory to the correct one after you apply the same fixes to them. (so from appdata to the System folder in your actual game directory)
