    Patching OFP using Wine under Linux

    How well does it run in wine? Is it stable and fast enough for regular use?

    NASA's Deep Impact going to Temple 1

    That's the ejecta from the impact. From the commentator on NASA TV, it seems like it is larger than was expected. I can't wait to see how nice this and other pics look after they've been cleaned up a little more. Congrats to JPL for a job well done! I have a 94 meg WMV of NASA TV for about 30 minutes prior to impact to about and hour after impact that I'm uploading to yousendit right now, I'll post the link here when its done. You should be able to see some of the other images here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/deepimpact/images/splash.html Edit: Here's the link for the WMV of some of the NASA TV coverage before and after the impact. http://s37.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3W30K3OW8MIEG04TVPNWBBCYPP

    New pics of OFP2 from Gamespot

    I think I speak for all OFP fans when I say: OMG, these are some of the most beautiful screenshots I've seen in my life. I'm only wondering about what this is running on and how many FPS its getting(granted its probably debug code and not substantially optimized so its probably not performing terribly great right now).

    OFP2 and "armed assault" - what's up?

    (I admit I haven't read anywhere near all of this thread, so please forgive me if this has already been asked, which it probably has been). How long before OFP1 were screenshots released? It'll be interesting to see how much this resembles the final product, many of the screenshots in BIS's "secret" photogallery thing look horrible compared to even a non-modded OFP CWS. I have to say that the vegetation, effects/dust, and soldier models look very impressive. The screenshots feel much more like a picture than most screenies from OFP1 do(atleast IMO). Atleast I guess this tells us that BIS is probably working very actively on OFP2, not just on OFP-Xbox and VBS. And thanks BIS for finally giving us a little info.

    Not move or delete ones that are already there though(AFAIK, please tell me if it is possible, I would really like to be able to do that )

    I think it could be a neat idea. There are sometimes when it would be really helpful to be able to move or take out a particular building or object.

    Network Problem

    Do you have a router of some sort set up? Â If you have a router, then make sure the DHCP server option is turned on. Â It will make things much easier. Â You will also want to make sure and turn on NAT(Network Address Translation) if for some reason it is off. Try to release and renew the IP with ipconfig(Start->Run->cmd->ipconfig/release, then ipconfig/renew). How was your network set up with just one computer? Â And is/was that computer connected to the internet, or should it just have access to the other box? You might also check the cables if you haven't used them before and especially if you made them yourself.

    Another new pistol

    Lookin pretty nice From the pics, you did a great job texturing sides. I'm sure you can do a good job for the grip as well.

    Open Source Software Experiences?

    I would agree that making it multiplatform would be a good thing. There's a lot of games for Windows, so fewer people aren't going to  be all that excited about a new game.  For Windows there are games somewhat close to what this might be, so a lot of people will just probably settle for them and accept their flaws, instead of taking an effort make something that's just a little bit better.  You would be a smaller fish in a bigger pond. If it will work on Linux however, it will be more significant, and might attract more people's attention/help earlier on.  Since there isn't anything that is similar to this(AFAIK) for Linux, more Linux developers might be more interested it in, giving you more people to code.  You would be a larger fish in a smaller pond of Linux this way, and that would help you eventually become a larger fish in the larger(atleast for now ;) ) pond of Windows.  There is also probably a higher number of developers per user with Linux than with Windows(don't know for sure, but that would be my assumption). I don't think there is that much of a downside of making it run on multiple OS's at this point since there isn't any code that you would have to change.

    Gmail invites for you OFP folks

    You could always PGP encrypt the messages if you are worried about security. You could use Windows Privacy Tools (http://winpt.sourceforge.net/en/), or a free version of PGP (http://web.mit.edu/network/pgp.html). Just generate a key and submit, and have who ever you're going to be sending stuff to generate a key as well, and give eachother your public keys. Copy and paste the encrypted text to Gmail, and send.

    S/S Mammona

    It seemed like there was a level that was almost completely underwater(with no damage). I don't think the main stairs went down to it, I think there was a small set of stairs from some sort of engine room type thing. I'll try to post a screenshot since I obviously suck at explaining things.

  13. Yes, these definately look top notch

    graphics that improve gameplay.

    I think you can shoot out atleast some street lights in OFP now.

    Real life photography/photo editing

    I have higher res/lower compressions versions of all the pics I just posted as well as a lot more that don't look as nice. Just email me if you want some of them. edit: About time I got over 2000 posts.
