Re: Any way to target missiles?
Lucky for you I had at the time what nowdays could be called piece of crap rig with little or no space on the hard drive. So occasionally I found my self burning useless junk on CD.

I think I have it here. Komet's Mod... Size is 1066 KB packed so I can't attach it here. But if someone is interested, I can supply it for you by your preferred method...

Do you actually have the source code or just the mod itself?

Cause the latter can only show us what the effect looked like.

Re: Any way to target missiles?
Well what would you think? :p

All I have is the mod. That is an .exe, readme and a tiny .vp that propably contains the new hud elements...

Edit:

...so please send me the mod via e-mail. Thanks :)
Nice of you to hide your email address...

The VP at least might be useful. :)

Re: Any way to target missiles?
if someone knew how to decompile an .exe without corrupting the code, we could see what he did.

I think that was small enough for attachment... I'll check that when I get home...


EDIT: I threw the whole mod up on some random file host I googled. :rolleyes:

It be here. I'm sure the author wouldn't mind. :)

Re: Any way to target missiles?
Whats wrong with the yellow pointers in your hud pointing at all those missiles coming at you? just keep them in the left or right and use countermeaserus!

Hmmm. The source code is supposedly on his website (Which was mentioned in the readme and surprisingly was still up).

I've already grabbed it. I can take a look later.

Scripted.. Each circle marks a weapon. Well in that screenie any weapon. But it can be - fairly easily - limited to only certain weapons

The circles are way too big and look... Freaky.

Is it possible* to add a range or target constraint? I imagine a volly of Tempests would get extremely annoying with such a system

*(not could you do it)

Don't really see it as necessary...
A "volley" would just be group of missiles moving in a line. If they are coming at you, it would just basically be one circle.
And only ones shooting volleys would be the one and only player, as I haven't really seen AI doing this.

And IRC komet did it so that only missiles that had the circle were those homing towards the player. So those shot by player or shot by someone else at something else, would not get the circle...
I'm not 100% sure this is how it was. But it surely is how it should be.

That screenshot looks like those Jurassic Park arcade games where you have to kill Rex.

Anyway, I think its more fun dodging missiles without visual contact on the missile.

Re: Any way to target missiles?
Well, this would be a great feature to have if the circle was refined into a cool targeting reticle since in ROBOTECH(tm)  the fighters often shoot down incoming missiles by gun or their own anti-missile systems.

  So in that regard, the Robotech Mod would be interested in seeing how (if any) development is done with this feature...
