Did it seem, to anyone else, that the Raynor's health regenerates much faster than any other unit?
TEI ships have faster health regen rates.

Saddening. Homeworld 2 does not work with the newest Mac OS, and I was looking forward to this.  :(

I sent an email to the company asking them to fix it and they said no. :(

Why would they, it's 7 years old.
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

More people than ever now, I'd wager, with stuff like Steam Play.

 
is this dead? I really think this is one of the nicest looking HW2 mods out there, and would have great replay value if only it had some deathmatch AI which really tried to fight

Yeah, officially "indefinitely put on hold" until either I get a massive amount of players wishing for me to continue, or get a massive amount of motivation to continue by myself.

The HW2 community is kinda dead and I'd rather focus on modding projects on the Freespace side, where there will actually be people playing my stuff :/

I've always considered HWBP as a "I've modded HW2 for 8 years and this is what I've eventually produced" kind of last cry before moving to 100% FSO for good. Given the scale of the project, I'm not surprised I only managed to release a tiny demo. Oh well.

To be fair, what you have done already is pretty good. You have a playable gauntlet mode and all the capships from BP. I have wondered for awahile how freespace would translate to the HW engine and now I'm pretty satisfied.

Actually, for someone like me who has no clue about programming (ok, i got a tiny bit of insight) i found the demo to be a lot of fun and VERY impressive. Also, i showed it a couple of my friends which basicly said the same about it.

Btw.: Did you or anyone else ever consider making a Mod for Sins of a Solar Empire?

EDIT: Ok, i am blind... its just below this thread  :banghead:

Oooh glad to see this up :); still remember this fondly particularly the gauntlet (other-side-of-map-jumping and reversing-while-firing Nara's for the win :pimp:).

Never actually tried mods on Steam (wanted to avoid having to re-install constantly) but if I get my head around them shall definitely install mate :).

Part of the point of the workshop is to make installing mods as painless as possible; you shouldn't have to reinstall even if a mod is completely screwed up.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

Ahh I see they've built a mod switcher into the launcher so no more having to constantly uninstall; Heavens sighted! Demo grabbed, darn haven't played in ages. If you need me I'll be fragging a Raynor.

Really looking forward to the re-release Matt; All the best with it! :yes:
