Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

Personally, I like the fresh start. I don't think there's that much "history" that we need to have around this place for it to function right. When you have been a member of the Star control community for like.. what is it, 12 years, seeing all those great forums go to waste quite saddens me.. I do...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

Ofcourse, you can always test it on a separate PhpBB before you implement it over here. Just remember that a forum is worth as much as the content that resides in it, so in fact you've gone from a forum that was worth something to a forum which is worth a lot less. Please do whatever you can to rest...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

Also, it could be possible that users can't access their logins after the conversion, because of the way passwords are stored, but they could reactivate their account then by using the passmailer (unless they are using a different email address by now, then one the board administrators would have to...

Re: Tweaks and changes to the new forum

I want all the old board's posts placed here too.. Don't like this 'fresh start', we've had enough of those in the past and so many things were lost back then.. :'( Are you volunteering to overcome the technical hurdles involved? Most people are converting from PhpBB to SMF these days, not the othe...

Re: New Study Results: Activision Hates Fun

It's true, Earth's leaders Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III deliberately made a choice to work under the Ur-Quan's slave shield indefinitely. They were the ones who handed over the white rod to Lord Activision. Now they are working under a red sky all days and some nights until either they die of old a...

Re: Games other than Star Control

I recently got my first game in a long time. I always liked Age of Wonders, despite it being broken every here and there. While idling through Wikipedia, I realised that the same studio has only produced one game series after that, Overlord. I bought the first on off Amazon in mint condition, with ...

Re: Games other than Star Control

For those wondering about Mass Effect 2: It's an incredible game! Right now I've completed it, but i'm still working on unlocking the sex scenes with your crewmembers onboard, so that's why it's not #2 in my top 5 of all time games yet ;). And also, I need to redo the last level in such a way as to ...

Re: Games other than Star Control

I wonder what the people playing Starcraft 2 don't understand about the word BETA. All this complaining about balance issues.. that's why you're playing the BETA right now, to get those balance issues fixed ;). Because thousands of people can do more balance testing than an inhouse team can :). Zerg...

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 ...
