Working on final bugfix version.

Posted on July 29, 2007 by Nighthawk

If no bug reports are submitted by next Sunday, public beta testing will end and I will start work on Beta 3.0. I will also need some people to help me on this one, as there's going to be a bit more work to it than the last two. More news will be revealed on that whenever work starts on Beta 3.0.

But before that happens, keep trying to find any bugs I haven't fixed in Beta 2.1, and report them so they can be fixed. I will release the last bugfix version next Sunday, as I've finally found a way to fix a long-known bug with the Future Forces weapons. Any bugs in reports submitted before Sunday will also be looked at and may be fixed in the last patch.

Beta 2.1

Posted on July 24, 2007 by Nighthawk

I've just uploaded the next update onto the server. This is the 1.10 conversion that was previously polled in the forums. Sorry about the delay for such a relatively simple update, but I've been away a lot recently.

Anyway, as before, the update comes in two flavours: cumulative and incremental. Both updates contain RockPatch 1.10 #0036, and both contain the fixes to make the mod work with 1.10.
Download the cumulative update only if you have the original Beta 2 files, and no updates.
If you've been using Beta 2.0c, download the incremental update. If you're using Beta 2.0b, I'd advise downloading the 2.0c incremental version, then the 2.1 incremental version.

Not much has been done with this update, considering most bugs so far have been to do with users not having some of the mod files. It's mostly a graphical update, containing the score screen for the Future Forces.

To install, make sure you know which version you need (cumulative or incremental), download, and unzip the files to your RA2 directory. Make sure you run the RockPatch installation file before playing the mod, especially if you're still using RPCE. If you're using the NPatch, uninstall it before installing the RockPatch.

You can grab the updates here, or head to the website and get them from the downloads page.
Cumulative Update (contains all fixes from Beta 2.0b, 2.0c and 2.1): Download
Incremental Update (only contains the Beta 2.1 fixes): Download.

Have fun.
Nighthawk.

New website, and Update 2.0c

Posted on June 30, 2007 by Nighthawk

As you can see, if you're reading this on the site, I've changed the design, again.
This time, it's using an actual design template, rather than something I cooked up in FrontPage with some tables and layers.
As well as the new site, I've uploaded the next bugfix patch to the server. There are two different versions you can download, an incremental one, and a cumulative one. If you installed the last update, then go for the incremental one, but if you haven't installed the update, go for the cumulative one - it contains 2.0b as well.
Remember, post any bugs in the topic entitled 'The Bug Thread' in the forums.
Please download and enjoy.

Later Update: There is a missing file from both the incremental and cumulative updates. Please download the file 'expandmd40.zip' from post #7 of this thread for the mod to work correctly.

Battlefield Report

Posted on June 14, 2007 by Nighthawk

From: Agent 'Nighthawk', Allied Intelligence
To: Allied Commander, Eastern Seaboard

Commander, the Future Forces seem to almost have their Ion Cannon fully ready. Its weapon seems to have been improved beyond what we originally saw. If you see any Uplinks on the field, Commander, take them out, or better yet, capture them, and we can turn their satellite against them.
Captured video of their upgraded cannon in action.
Or go here if your browser won't work with the first link.
