1. Why? Dec 9, 2002, 09:57 Belly Flop
Just install SP1 for Windows XP, AFAIK this solves the
60Hz limit.

22. Black Screen Nov 14, 2002, 13:57 Belly Flop
I also had a black screen when I first installed and had to reboot. I noticed there seemed to be a certain area (a square) in the black screen where my cursor seemed to appear and disappear. The square was about the same size as my Zone Alarm Pro screen... So to make a long story short. I got it to work after I first setup my Zone Alarm to give full access to the RavenShield.exe. Try that, it should then work. It did for me

You can also download the Oracle 9i database (a 1 user license) from the Oracle web site for free (if you have ADSL of course) if you want to check it out. Any more licenses will cost you though. Why mess with the rest if you can play with the best?

Ahhh that's interesting, thanks zaq

Yeah I suppose there are many ways to skin a cat. (If you'll pardon the expression) The end result (HTML) is the same, the route (PERL, JAVA or PHP etc) how you get there is different. At the end of the day all that matters is that it works, it is easily modified by the coders and your users are happy with the speed.

And now not to make this forum sound like something out of slashdot, I'm off to go and hand out some headshots in Counter-Strike (where the hell is Condition Zero?)

I also create intranet tools for a living at my company.


We use Apache web server on a Unix platform (obviously on an Oracle database. We have a special PERL module that allows us to create dynamic HTML or even normal HTML with inline perl code embedded with special tags in normal HTML.
We use the DBI perl module for database access and the AuthenDBI module for user access and accountability. Works like a charm. The code is easy to modify if you know anything about PERL and can be done using minimum lines of code being based on PERL.

Another way I've seen people do it is create normal static HTML files as the output of PERL scripts that query a database. This is semi-dynamic but works well too.


I don't know what tech Blue's site uses, and I'm sure they
won't be handing out source But it's always interresting to know generally how things are stuck together if you are so inclined. (I am) What method do you use where u work?

Anyways, just my $0.02

1. The miracle of indexes? Oct 22, 2002, 08:22 Belly Flop
I noticed this slow response the few times I was unfortunate enough not to get my daily BluesNews fix and had to view the historical pages a few days later.

As a programmer myself I was wondering wether perhaps it was the database key column indexes that were not catered for? Was this the rocket fuel solution to the historical pages? Sorry, just my nerd curiousity. Furn?

News Comments > BF1942 MP Demo Patch & New Server
26. New demo Sep 5, 2002, 05:39 Belly Flop
I won't be getting the demo patch. I have purposefully been starving myself by not playing the MP demo anymore. I played it too many times already. lol. When the final game comes out it will be as fresh and new as when I first laid eyes on this puppy. Very happy about the ASE support.

This game IS very addictive and I can see it will be sitting on my HD for a long while. See ya on the servers...

1. UT2003 out in Fall 2003? Aug 30, 2002, 06:53 Belly Flop
From the article:

"The game is currently scheduled to ship in Fall 2003"

Surely they mean Fall 2002 ????

AAAh, my very first post as a registered user... /me dusts off his new suit. Thanks Fausticle, I didnt know about the right click to adjust grenade throw distance, I guess just like when the demo first came out, we all struggled to get out of those darn landing craft before we knew how to open the front doors. Hehehe. This game has loads of these little features. Like they say: easy to learn, hard to master. I am waiting with bated breath for it to hit the shelves.

PS: Sorry for all the edits, I cannot believe the speelung erors I have made, I can only put it down to those 'first post' nerves...
