Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

A database, when properly maintained, fundamentally can't corrupt itself. It's the software that handles the database that introduces (the appearance of) corruption and causes unexpected behaviour. This can be caused by two things.. 1) The SMF software writes malicious data to the database. 2) The S...

Yeah, I know.. though if you look back to the old intro mod they last just as long ;).. I need something better to fill the gaps, to make the intro more entertaining.

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

Once again there are words being spoken with different tongues ;). From what has been said in the past it only appeared that there was a hunch that the SMF malfunctioning was caused by data corruption due to the migration from the old Yabb forum. It was never confirmed by the SMF experts, nor by any...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

Oh, I'm not complaining about the switch, I just think you should do anything in your power to restore the old posts to these forums. I'm a regular visitor on a forum in which I can still find the first post by the first user 11 years ago. In the meantime the forum has undergone several software cha...

Re: My Orchestral Star Control 2 PC Intro Remix

I'm not really sure what to make of it. I can't say I liked the intro terribly much, and felt that the crescendos in the middle were a bit too far removed from the original piece. However, the horns were spot on, along with the backing strings. I'll lean toward undecided, I guess. ;) Thanks for you...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

Why would converting the database take vast amounts of working time? Have you tried the script that I looked up for you? Because from what I understand it's fully automated... Which in turn is why I looked it up for you.. to save you time, which you don't have.

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

seeing all those great forums go to waste quite saddens me. Y'know why those forums where great? Because of the people that where part of it. I'm not at all sentimental about losing a forum iteration, though I have thought about it, but found no real reason to feel otherwise. For me it's the commun...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

The problem was that fixing or migrating the forum properly would entail one of the following: 1. Opening up the database to a random person, who could steal people's information. 2. Spending a lot of time trying to fix or migrate it, with no guarantee of success. 3. Spending a lot of money hiring ...

My Orchestral Star Control 2 PC Intro Remix

Last night I was wondering about what the intro credits would look like if there was ever to be a Star Control movie.. I imagine big spaceships flying by, doing battle, and epic orchestral music. Then I started wondering what the Star Control 2 PC intro music would sound like if it were to be played...

Re: Project 6014 - UQM mod

For the earthling and syreen comm screens, why don't you use hayes' and talana's with a different background, perhaps doing a quick edit on their hair, clothes or body color to make them look different. Shouldn't be too hard if you're familiar with the format that was used. If that's what's holding...
