There was one being worked on many years ago.  Like most projects of that scope, it died.

As soon as I found out about this I got it. I have not tried it yet, but you probably can play Matth's BP mod on this in the multiplayer beta. If we could get that to work that would be awesome. Some Buntu-GTVA matches going.

Unless he snuck out an update while I wasn't looking, HWBP is not playable in multiplayer.

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.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Recently replayed the HW2 campaign...
What bothers me, why leaving the pride inside Balcora? Because she required a wirehead and only Karan Sjet is one?
Considering the Pride wake jumped the whole fleet, it should've been possible to just drag the pride along and use her after lifting the siege.

Plot weakness?
How much time has passed between HW1 and 2?
A wirehead can commandeer a ship on his own, he needs crew but that's it.
AFAIK, Karan stepped forward to once again take command, but she got the Pride because she insisted.
Sounds like there would've been other wireheads...
Anyway, a shame to leave the Pride, but at least she is save.

While the last mission was a cakewalk, Balcora was...odd.
Took out the shipyard, which prompted the AI to keep it's forces close...
5 BCs, the dreadnought and several DDs against my force.
I wittled them down in two waves of bomber and pulsars, supported by Ion cannon frigates and DDs.
Remembered this to be easier in the classic.

There are no indications that there are other hiigarans with neural interfaces similar to Karan's.

Just watched some of the side-by-side/splitscreen videos. We oughta make an in-mission cutscene and do the same thing with retail and MediaVPs.

I only just downloaded this for the first time last week after pre ordering.

Runs on on the other half's macbook.  But the cut scenes seem a bit ruined. No idea how maybe it's nostalgia goggles but they don't feel as nice

Huge update released today too, including proper formations, tactics, rebalancing, ballistics instead of RNG shots, and more. Some things need a lil' tweaking but all in all it's a great update.
