Posted by ned
In case you haven't noticed I'm moving all of the forum content over to the blog. I've decided to work on the Enemy Territory section next. It's the largest one to do and I was going to tackle it last but there have been some Fritz Bot mod updates over the last few months that I'd like to have a look at. The latest update is from TomTom. He's made a waypoint pack for the map Warehouse (final) by zig-zag. Details - here.

I'll be working on the ET section in groups. More details soon!

I was recommended this game for its coop play by TOG Fox who is, like me, a cooperative gameplay fan. I gave it a bit of a test run last night and I like it very much. Very intense.

So, I've added this game on my 'to do' list. Coop and the various other multiplayer modes will be looked at. To be more specific, I'll be running the Sheriff's Special Forces (SSF) Realism Mod v3.1 which is for the The Stetchkov Syndicate expansion pack.

I'm new to this game but here's some basic info.

Be part of a squad and use authentic weaponry and tactics in various SWAT scenarios.

In the singleplayer you lead. In multiplayer it's team based SWAT v suspects. In the multiplayer coop you can lead or be a part of a squad versus suspects.

SWAT 4: The Stetchkov Syndicate expansion pack
-new missions playable in single-player, multiplayer and co-op mode
-new SWAT equipment and weapons and the addition of a melee attack
-new objective types

I've added some additional info to my Serious Sam 2 FAQs. Included is a 'how to' on adding some more info to your screen. I've also added some more to the dedicated server tips page including my current configs.

Hit the Info, Links and Downloads link to the right and go the Serious Sam 2 section.

edit: after some feedback tonight while playing I've changed the Deathmatch fraglimit to 25 from 10. Timelimit remains at 15 minutes.

[MOH-A] Medal of Honor Airborne and PBSetup v3.4  
Tuesday, 30 December, 2008, 08:03 - Medal of Honor
Posted by ned
This is for server admins who want to use PBSetup to install or update Punkbuster into Medal of Honor Airborne.

First some links:
Medal of Honor Airborne

MOH Airborne dedicated server pack v1.3

PunkBuster Online Countermeasures

PBSetup (Updating PunkBuster with PBSetup)

At the time of this post the current version of PBSetup was 3.4 which has an issue with the MOH Airborne v1.3 dedicated server pack. When running PBSetup and selecting 'Add a Game' and then selecting 'Medal of Honor: Airborne', PBSetup provides an incorrect default 'Game Path'. This is strange because PBSetup works OK with the full game version. There is only an issue with the server pack.

The incorrect given path is..
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Medal of Honor Airborne\UnrealEngine 3\MOHAGame\

There should be no space betweeen the e and 3

It should be..
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Medal of Honor Airborne\UnrealEngine3\MOHAGame\

So, all you have to do is remove the space in the 'Game Path' line and you're good to go.
Even Balance, Inc. have been notified about this error.

blog and server update 
Sunday, 28 December, 2008, 07:55 - >Misc Chat
Posted by ned

I've combined the downloads and extras sections together. Now you can find gaming info, links and downloads on the one page. I'm still slowly progressing through the old forum and transferring everything over to the blog. Hopefully I'll finish it all soon.


Most of you know my server has been offline (not it's own dedicated connection) since I moved house. While offline I decided format the drive. I also had an opportunity to upgrade it.

My old system:
AMD Athlon XP 3000+
Kingston RAM 1GB

New server thanks to my brother upgrading:
Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+
Veritech RAM 2GB

I'm hoping to have a dedicated connection for the server in the next few weeks.

stay tuned!
