  1. Looking very nice Rocky. The ACP looks very different, it's going to take a while to get used to.
  2. Yes mate they look great, I like the colour scheme it's easy on the eye.
  3. On the iPad the forums fill the screen so you can't see the background, I'll have to check it out on the PC. Looking good Rocky.
  4. Haha, yeah your scripting was second to none! If you use a circle as a location you can use the centre of that to pinpoint the waypoint, looking at Popey's code it looks like that is what he is trying to do using the waypoint_id but if I rememer correctly (not forgetting the senile part) these locations have a tendency to bury themselves way below the terrain which can hide the objectives waypoint text. So yeah I normally used a marker to get the coordinates for the waypoint correct. All this scripting talk makes it just like old times Spik@.
  5. Hey Spik@ if you can help out here at all it would be appriciated, after all you know how old and senile I am!
  6. Hi Popey, Had another look at your script and noticed you have setup an extraction objective so I cant quite see why it doesn't work but the code for that objective differs slightly from what I have used. Here is one of mine: <element type="Objective" id="obj16" state="add" headline_id="Head To Extraction" waypoint_id="Extract" waypoint="18034.486 8370.5527 1580.3784"/>‚Äč I see you have minus values set in your waypoint, this may be ok depending on the altitude of your extraction point but worth a check. I used to place a marker at the centre of the extraction point then find that marker in the world.xml and use the values from that for the waypoint. Again I'm sorry I cant be more help but I've forgotten most of what I used to know about scripting. You are more than welcome to unbundle any of my missions and use what ever you want for your missions, all I ask is that if you release any of them to the public give credit to me for anything you use in the description. I wish you well, this modding is not easy, John
  7. Test forums look good, best of luck with the upgrade Rocky.
  8. Hi Popey, Welcome to the forums. It's been a long while since I did any scripting but I can see you don't have a location marker to mark your extraction point. I'm on the iPad at the moment but when I get on the PC (hopefully this evening) I'll check one of my old scripts to see if I can find out what I did. Sorry I can't help more but I have forgotten how I did this. John
  9. Many thanks Tom, these things take time to get over. It's going to be hard but as you say I have a lot of good memories. I don't want to hijack this thread so I'll let you folks get back on topic.
  10. I won't go into to much detail on here Tom but she passed away a few weeks ago, it was very sudden and unexpected. I was with her for 25 years and her career for 15 years. Being so close it's been very hard to deal with.
  11. Happy birthday for last month Tom. Nice to see my old maps are still being used.
  12. Happy Birthday Alex! Hope you have a good day and get lots of nice pressies, just make sure you save your new PC for me!
  13. Happy Birthday Zjj. Ah 40 again! Hope you have a great one!
  14. I think it's safe to say that after posting a picture like that Rocky will make yout LolCat posts top priority.
  15. Providing there is minimal risk of losing any data then I would say it's worth it, a more modern site would make it easier for both members and admins.
  16. Thread title changed as requested by Alex.
  17. You're welcome Tom. I had a lot fun when I was making maps missions and props for the game, I do miss my modding but after 60+ maps missions and a couple of campaigns I just lost the inventive to continue, this wasn't helped with the failing health of my wife so these days she is my priority. I wish you all the best in getting this great game on its feet again. John
  18. After reading through the above posts I feel saddened by the content. Many here have put a lot of time (including myself) into this game making maps, missions, weapon mods and game launchers etc.... It's a shame we can't all get along by having one common goal, to promote and get this game back on it's feet but alas as usual we end up in a chest beating contest, I suspose this is human nature. So, I suggest that those who don't like the game or have no interest in reviving it refrain from posting in this thread. After all we are a fan site!
