Re: Possible “Clan War” Based Matches

Yeah, I think "clan war" is going to be a non-starter here, and nothing we need to "try and make work for EA117." So many of our folks are here just randomly, when available, and "just for fun" like HairyRussianDude described. And they aren't looking for, nor needing, s...

Re: black screen when i join server

I think the most recent example I saw was when my wife's work shipped her one of those Dell 34" curved Ultrasharp super-wide monitors. 3440x1440 native, and seems like there were a couple "traditional resolutions" that no longer got offered by the video card once connected.

Re: black screen when i join server

That still sounds like "my computer maybe can't display 800x600 successfully any more" or similar. What graphics modes your video card can offer or support depends on what capabilities it knows it has through the monitor connection. So indeed, the resolutions offered and supported through ...

Re: black screen when i join server

That chosen resolution is of course different for each user, which is why the change has to be customized, and isn't just a "here, it's fixed" kind of change that can be provided. I stand corrected. Bud over at Team-SiMPLE just pointed to someone who recently posted (last year) a fix to t...

Just found out that a second season of Trapped was available, and can't wait to have time to watch it. Icelandic language and locale cop drama. (Amazon Prime) If you like that, be sure and also check out Hinterland, a Welsh language and locale cop drama. (Netflix) Blown Away reality show about compe...

Re: black screen when i join server

Once you've installed Team-SiMPLE's normal fixed BF1942.EXE (Step 8 in the http://ea117.com/dcinstall instructions), the graphic resolutions offered inside the game should be "exactly the graphic resolutions offered by your video card." Rather than the fixed hard-coded list of 800x600, 102...

Re: Custom Made Maps in the Rotation

The other gate we'll need to pass though is having the installer that we can actually de-compile or compile here. Since there won't be any "EA117 said to download this" for which EA117 doesn't have definitive knowledge and access to what's in the installer. We would also be looking at how...

It was the December 21st, 2020, 12:51 am CST DC_Final version. So, after the initial December 20 mis-spawning objects were fixed, but before the further December 27 refinements.

Re: victory

Yeah, we loitered a bit too long around the crash site gate, and I was sure there was no way you were going to make it all the way in.

That was crazy. Wish that I had had the Bandicam running on that one. DogMA had to dive at the pole with only a literal second to spare.

I won't doubt you again! 😜

Re: Toning Down the Personal Insults

Thanks for your input, Cyber. Indeed, the reminder announcement needed to be made, and more frequent enforcement enacted, because some cases had simply deteriorated too far. Holding everyone accountable to the same standard will be no change for most, and minor change for others.

I'd absolutely do it if I was asked to, and somehow "deemed to be who needs to get it in order to help." But my job and where I live lets me do pretty well at the distancing and all the basic precautions we've had since day one. So I have to assume that dose is better off being available t...
