HEADS UP! Forum going down!
« on: August 29, 2017, 06:01:12 PM »
Dear Community,

this forum is dead and has been considered deprecated for a few months now.

In a few days, it will be laid to rest along with the other parts of the old website. Splendid time we had here fellas, but this is it.

In its stead will be a redirect to our current download page. There you'll also find links to other MWLL communities and places to talk. We will also have a brand-new and updated Wiki for you.

Goodbye and see you on the other side.

don't bother sending me PMs, I probably won't be reading them in time.

RIP old forums.

I will miss the Epic Paint.
I will miss the Long Tom Rage.
I will miss the legacy of Fochty.

But I won't miss them for long.

I think you need to take your brain medicine.

they're systematically destroying all the evidence

time to back up my posts documenting the dev team's aero supremacist conspiracy

that's really the one thing that endured through the years

also the posts of frostiken, my john the forerunner

You were ever my little scamps and frequently a source of great entertainment.

Whatever happened to old Frosty? His tirades were usually the most entertaining.

Is there at least going to be an archive? There's tons of drop calc data, weapons stats, design documents, old builds saved, my only contacts to some arcane former dev team members, and lots of other irreplaceable stuff.

I have all the data, it just won't be easily accessible. Might put up a read-only mirror at some point tho.

Tools and I:
   - MWLL Online Launcher (LAN UDP Forwarder) - evolution of past "Le Proof of Concepto" project: connect without Gamespy via packet redirection;
   - Vehicle Browser - "Pocket Wiki" ©okaolias (not really that though);
   - Rconnect 4.3 - Server tools: map manager/player voting add-ons;
   - CryHammer - Validates Patch/CDKey of Crysis Wars (now unable to validate CDKey due to turned off Gamespy servers).

Well then. It would be nice to have a new forum though. Discord is not a place to really flesh out longer arguments and shit.

Edit.: I read my old posts, fapp that we don't need a forum.

The only thing that is permanent is change.

Farewell MWLL forumz.

It'd be pretty amusing to see what'd happen once the chinese spam bots start talking to each other.

... like some basic answers when it comes to new player problems, nice starter guides, past and present event info with great video links, up and coming how to run MWLL on linux info, known issues topics with still relevant things in them, stats page explained, custom configs for both low and high performance machines, and so on and so on.

Yeah, some kind of read-only mirror would be a really good thing to have.   ::)
