1.45 ALERT: Mod-makers take note
1.45 patch will be available soon. If you've played the Secret Weapons demo, you're already aware of some of the fixes that have been implemented.
One fix has implications for mod-makers. If you have not already done the following, you will need to update your mod in order to make it work with 1.45 and subsequent patches. In order to work, you must modify the following line:
....where bf1942 is changed to reflect your mod name. This line is found in the init.con file found in the menu folder for each map included with your mod.
The path in an unpacked level is: ...\Mods\BF1942\Archives\BF1942\Levels\bf1942\levels\Battle_of_Britain\Menu\init.con.
We have attempted to minimize all impacts that patches have on the mod community, and any that do occur are unavoidable in order to deliver a better gaming experience. We hope by providing this information before the patch is released, you can update your mods accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
We're not doing another sequel next," said Carmack. "We will do a new title. It will be a shooter, with a different antagonist and protagonist. ... People who have been working in the company for a long time don't want to continually rehash their old work."
With the new game will come a new engine, meaning Carmack's oft-rumored retirement will remain a rumor for the next few years.
"In the coming years, I have things I want to do," he said. "The next generation of hardware and the next engine is very exciting. There's little doubt I'll be doing that."
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 22, 2003--Origin Systems, an Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS - News) development studio, today announced the development of Ultima X: Odyssey(TM) (UXO), a next generation massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) from the award-winning Origin studio team. Powered by the latest version of the Unreal® Engine and based on the renowned Ultima(TM) single-player role-playing series, UXO will enable players to create personalized legacies in a massive new online world and will be one of the first of its kind to offer private areas on demand within the game.
"Ultima X: Odyssey takes the genre to the next level through its innovative new Odyssey Adventure System ensuring that players experience a greater sense of adventure and reward from both questing and combat," said Andy Hollis, vice president and chief operating officer of Origin Systems.
UXO's proprietary and innovative Odyssey Adventure System delivers customized quests to players automatically and enables private adventure zones, providing adventures on demand as players journey through the world. An added bonus in offering players private areas is that they can't be interrupted by "griefers" and other uninvited guests.
I got a couple of comments from readers who received a Gator pop-up dealie. There are few things I despise more than spyware installers, and this was not supposed to be running here. After learning about this, the powers-that-be were able to pinpoint the offending campaign where some weasel had slipped these in there, and it was killed. If this should happen again going forward, please be willing to drop an e-mail to me or a forum post about it so that the croc hunter can be sent after the offending reptile.
