just wanted to say TY for mr/miss duck for ITKO, HCKO etc etc, those servers back in 2008/09 were amazing
anyone knows when sw comes back
and now 2015 is snoxd closed for ever? or you twostars could pass to others the leadership or atleast run it again?
I support this discussion and would like a place to visit and discuss KO development. It may not be obvious to most people, but there were a lot of new client-side discussions being had on Snoxd towards the end. Development is often a long and tedious process and what looks dormant on the surface is often layered with hard work underneath.
I would leave most of the 1.298 content out if we ever started a new board,i saw some potential new members on Snoxd that could contribute somehow to the newer versions.
We really have to move on if we want to bring any activity back,new content has to be added and tutorials have to be written for the newer versions.
None is going to mess around with the stock 1.298 while you can buy SOACS (Not at least if you wish to have a valid project).
Just to show where i'm going with all of this: Turkish web
I've been taking part of this since there is nothing on the English scene,but we could possible start a group that would contribute and if we find people that would contribute we would
add them to the "VIP" membership (Which allows you to see "special" content).
It's just an idea and i have no desire to do it alone,nor to administrate it but if someone decides i'll be willing to help.
Then Si gone KO-Devs died!
twostars had some backup => snoxd went down. twostars took the responsibilty to re create it.
twostars has done alot I can understand why he doesnt want to continue but on the other hand its not fair to go without say anything without leave any backup!
so ZeroH the 1298 content are INDEED has a HUGE VALUE!
if people in this commmunity would learn little bit more about C/C++/C# and much little bit about SQL (triggers , proc etc) and little bit of 8086 ASM.
Then they would be able to do the same as osmanx or acme does, and ofc fulfill their ideas..
u dont have to be genious u need to sit and try instand of asking everything.
For instance we have the 1351/1397 files with the old source and with 1298 CURRENT FIXES! we can tweak it to those versions and make them stable! if u looked in snoxd I did it so many times while I used 1397 and I released few patches..
About contribute so I think you wrong twostars opened Snoxd project for this reason it was public 2 years no one really contribute even as testers!!!!!
for making what ApexKO has done (twostars and Max) you need to be skilled enough at C/C++ (mostly C++) langauge lua etc.
I dont see the whole community start studying those languauges.. because of their lazyness..
so after all 1298 has HIGH value for this community from that and all the patches that has done u can understand hows every system working and if your not laznyess so tweak patches to 13xx or even start build your emoulator like twostars and Aestertis have done!
I just hope snoxd would be online again , if twostars could not handle it anymore I have no problem that he pass me the backup and I would up it again.
#1 There are very few such individuals,from what i've seen you were the only one.
#2 I agree there is nothing special but if you want to run (mess around) with a game you are expected to have some programing knowledge.
It's not that much hiding,but for obvious reasons we don't want EVERYONE to have acces to our "private work".
#3 My idea was to start off a project with a few chill people,which would like to learn/work on something ofcourse they're expected to have some knowledge but there is
always room for learning. (Force took my words to seriously from what i saw)
#4 LUA for example is really easy to learn,i didn't go to a programming school and i learned it out if interest. Ofcourse you can't achieve the same level as people that attended/learned
something like this in school.
#5 While i agree the content belongs to the community,lets not forget without Twostars,Snoxd was nothing and will stay nothing unless he decides to return.
None of us can help people out as much as Two did.
Didn't Quote everything because i'm on phone. #FML
Call me crazy but one of my long-term goals is to have the server/client running SDL2, OpenGL, and MySQL (I have an AIServer prototype). These options are more "open" than the WinAPI, DirectX and SQL Server. My utopian KO scene would have a community like PlaneShift but with the gameplay KO is known for. Not everyone agrees with me, but I still believe an open source version of KO is possible (a good read).
The stuff you get at school is actually really crappy if you compare it to the "Real stuff".
My project is close to being finished so i'll stick to it (and only this one),till i complete it. (Should be start of December)
I'm also not really interested into starting something (new) on my own,but if you have ideas and you want some help you can hit me up on Skype or IRC.
As for the learning experience,ofcourse doing actual work will improve your knowledge better than some simple exercises.
My point was in school someone is always monitoring you/helping you through the whole experience. (Which can also be negative ofcourse e.g. you're not used to working alone)
But i thing in general attending some programming school makes it a lot easier to start off,i've been learning everything from e-books or online courses.
