We have a few extra steps to do today, the first (backing up the database) apparently taking quite a long time to happen.
Gave me time to find, fix and test the cause of the missions closing when they shouldn’t and not closing when they should issue from 1.24. You’ll still get the pop-up telling you leaving will cancel but it no-longer applies.
We had a last minute panic; spawning from an MSP or switching from an MSP to an AB would cause grenades not to notice the ground. Which was bad.
There’s one component of the infantry changes in 1.25 that I really hope we open up a bit more, we certainly have the lead-in now, which
Netcode2 is now included as standard, but I couldn’t talk Ramp into including the option to turn it on in the preferences :(
To drive home that it is experimental, “use at your own peril”, we didn’t add its option to the preferences screens. To turn it on manually you must:
1. Go to your battleground europe/data directory and locate “wwiiol.xml”
2. Open this file. PC Users: Do NOT use ANYTHING other than notepad. Not wordpad, not word, not visual studio, not anything. Scouts honor: If you open that file with anything but notepad, you are going to experience misery because, for some reason, our XML parser isn’t very PC friendly.
3. Search for value=”app.usenetcode2″
4a. If you find it, change the value=”false” to value=”true”
4b. If you do not find it, add the following directly before the </message> tag:
<value name="app.usenetcode2" type="bool" value="true"/>
so it should look something like this:
.../><value name="app.usenetcode2" type="bool" value="true"/></message>
