So if someone could please open up my legal copy it would be nice. email adres is ablaauw[at]gmx.net My callsign is cmdr Twobombs of Orion aka Aryan Blaauw Tnx, Aryan Ps: maybe its time to delete the check for this product as UC has been on the EOL list for almost two years now ? But it's just my rambling... _______ oops posted it in the wrong thread, maybe someone can move this to activation ? tnx. [ 04-07-2007, 08:41 AM: Message edited by: Wolferz ]

    Due to an unexpected RL tragedy (passing away of my mother in law) i'm back in Europe for about a month, i won't be able to perform any BC duties. I might check in for the occasional rollcall; but that will be about it I think.

    Yupz, I've read it; i'll reread it to make sure I don't miss some minute detail.
  5. Hi All, Forgot to mention this a few weeks ago; Slashdot mentioned that the parody movie Starwreck: in the Pirkinning has been released *for download* and I would like to recommend it. http://www.starwreck.com Greetings from Tramis, 2B Ps: it's a 300Mb+ D/L

    Hi $ilk, my ping times are waaay to high to have a decent MP session from here (here=RSA) + i'm on a modem ! At my office my ping times are a little bit better and bandwith a bit more; yet I don't want to start an MP session, it's really an hassle. mind you: I haven't even activated the MP part.

    I'm back; having read the developments (and mishaps) from the last 5 years or so, I came to the following conclusion : - Communication between RP writers of the different fleets should be mandatory. Hoping that the SC and other RP writers *might* like the direction your ego-istic RP is heading towards, at the same time ignoring the messages from other (possible far more experienced players)could've prevented most -if not all- permabanned RP writers and cancellation of subscription by other RP writers. Sure, people sometimes develop strange ideas along the way, but one very good RP writer left the scene purely by ignoring the warnings by his and other teammates and the SC which actually stood on the background for quite some time. Which brings me to the next item - After carefull study of the material I found that the RP with the most team efford came out the best by far; and possible even made it to the Game in some form or another... People might or might not agree with that; but I am convinced that good RP is definative a good source for mission scripts. - Japanese Noodles and South African Biltong mix well as a dish.

    Hi Remo, Thanks for the time and efford you've put into this endeavour. I'll download and read the document whilst I am away for a holliday to the Karoo in a remote village that might have Internet and even electricity. Kidding about the electricity part. During that stay i'll also look into the already existing RP to date; it seems to i've got a lot to catch up from the missions to Jupiter in '98. I'll be reporting back in about two weeks. Grtnx, 2B
  12. Done http://www.netshopeden.co.za/photosite/thu...tuff&c=bcmucawa login orion password fire For some screenshots that I made for people that absolutely never heard of this game.
  13. Hello Orion people, In the past('98) i've been involved in some RP, and as I don't have a fast connection to the Net, I prefer to look into the RP,scripting & documentation/website tasks.
  14. Okay; I was out of this scene since 1999 ( Battle Cruiser Mil ) But whatever happened with the rings around large gaseous planets such as Jupiter & Saturn? It would also have made nice extrasolar planets with the Red & Blue backgrounds that are beautifully laid out.

    Shuttle damage with AI pilots

    I think that it has got to do with the depth at which the shuttle-targeter thinks that is the ground level. I often find negative numbers next to the ' target ' area. Maybe the SC can shed some light on this matter; as he coded the routines.

    Postcards from the edge

    A more detailed one is at http://netshopeden.co.za/UCAWA/Photo020.jpg I find them quite funny He fell from the craft as it went into space, but I could not find the marine back. But its easy reproducable; put a FC by means of a waypoint in the same space the marine occupies, and let it land on top. Then the marine will automagically get on top of the FC, then send the FC back to space with a RTB or a similar command that sends the FC topside. All funny stuff that you can do on an Atari Remember Elite Fronteer ? What was the framerate of that game ? We have become spoiled....

    Marine got a lift in AWA ... http://netshopeden.co.za/UCAWA/Photo019.jpg the framerate is quite funny too in space I have no real prob, but planetside it's slow, but still fun

    Offline/Local Server & Clients

    Okay, tnx for the info
  20. Hello ppl, Having moved from Netherlands to this worderfull sunny South Africa with lions & elephants a mere 15 min drive away, I am a bit bandwith impaired; so i've got this idea to run a local server where clients can connect to. Is this possible/wise ? Please bear in mind that a 128kbit stream is a very big luxury here and pingtimes to the states/EU are sometimes well above 3 seconds. Australia however is fine; less bandwith congestion; so a an online multiplayer session wont be much fun I recon ? Tnx, 2Bombs

    Offline/Local Server & Clients

    I have received the 1st key for UCAWA through email when I ordered the UCAWA game yesterday; the physical media will arrive here in 3 weeks or so. As I won't need the extra media when I want to run a second instance of UCAWA; i'll need a second key (or third for that matter) but not a second or third set of media. Some software media outlets call it a virtual product, as it's only a key; software is already downloaded or otherwise in the posession of the user. Btw: thanks derek for the continueing overall support in all those years ; these days it *really* is scarse, a lot of people are in the software biz/buz just to fill their pockets; but you already know that for more then a decade....

    Offline/Local Server & Clients

    Having read the faq http://www.3000ad.com/gamecq/ucmpfaq.html a lot of my questions have been answered; however when I would like to run a dedicated server and then connect a client to it I need to purchase two (2) copies of the game. I see that I've received my first key, can I buy an extra key (not the whole package again) ? Not looking for a bargain, just looking for an extra key without the hussle of sending the same package across the globe. Signing off, 2Bombs

    Universal Combat : A World Apart - NOW ON SALE!!

    Update: I reinstalled SP2 and now the game starts 1 out of 10, but now I at least saw the game It might be that i see the crashed because my dx9c is a debug version... the windows is a pretty clean install and haven't noticed crashes so far, but nvidia 80.40 might also have something to do with it The sim looks awesome, even though my rig sometimes has a rough time with the 1st person view. Space stuff has really improved since BCM ! Ps: please open the tech section for UCAWA ?

    Universal Combat : A World Apart - NOW ON SALE!!

    Hi Derek, I've been gone a while from the BC scene, I thought to try out the new demo (ucwa demo3) and it keeps on crashing at start. Some D3D error says the m$-log. I run GF4 & nv80.40 drivers on a dual P3 running XP SP2. If you want I can send the debug log. I hope to run the demo and buy the game.
