Five and a half new(old) islands on Funhouse
NEW!

It is true that Clowns are not very well organized, have red swollen noses from long hard years of alcohol abuse and tend to step all over each others' long red floppy toes. After more than a year and the collaboration of many members and non-members, we somewhat proudly present a new addon pack of old islands. Finally some different places in which to bleed to death:


Freya

Ivtiliac

Kodiak / Winter Kodiak

Scandrova

Skye



The installer for this pack can be found here:

We will have several new missions on these islands within the next week or two. Install the island pack soon or be left behind.

Civil war has taken its toll on this African nation.

The Rebel and Militia groups continue to unleash their atrocities across the southern region of this country.


Covert operations have been approved - with one purpose in mind - To punish the Rebels and militia and send the message that they cannot engage in this sort of activity without consequences.

New Website Theme
News
Posted by surpher


You may have noticed already that there is a new default theme for the website. If your not seeing it click on the My Account link in the User Area then click on Select theme and select 'pnLolclassic' from the drop down menu and save your changes.
The theme is based on an Autotheme called C-Black we had from 2004 - 2007, this theme was lost when the website was moved to a new server last year. So I went about tracking down the original theme, first I used the Internet Archive Wayback Machine to get the name of the old theme, once I had the name I googled it and found it easily enough. I then had to convert this old Autotheme into a Xanthia theme that PostNuke currently supports, I managed to find a conversion kit which was basically a readme detailing which PostNuke files and tags needed renaming. When I had a working theme I then decided to convert it from basic html to xhtml (i.e. from tables to divs) this uses a fraction of the code and makes it a lot easier to edit.



The theme should work ok in Firefox, Opera, IE7 and IE6. If you have any issues with the theme you can PM me or open a new topic (if there is not one open already) in the General Chat/Website section of the forum.



Big Thanks! to the members who helped me fix the alignment and styling issues.

Backup1: flashpoint.vt100.at:2302 which is a Majors clone with all the mission from the old Majors server.



Backup2: flashpoint2.soundportal.at which is a Majors clone with other maps added.

If you have a map to add, Make sure it uses @LOL addons. Also make sure it works or it will be deleted (check map requirements in forums: Mission testing/Baaa Missions/Sticky;map guidelines). You can submit maps to andyequinox@hotmail.com




You can get the correct addons for gaming or editing in the download section, second page, Fulladdons.exe which creates the mod folder needed, so let it do its thing, then just add it to your shortcut

("C:Program FilesCodemastersOperationFlashpointFLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE" -nomap -nosplash -mod=@[lol] ) then edit away. (Installer does create a shortcut with the mod and nosplash)

FFUR Addon

Funding
News
Posted by tricky


Right after a long talk with Wombat about funding and the amount of bandwidth we are eating. To keep the server running it will cost £400 for a six month period. We are going through bandwidth like it is going out of business.

If we can't keep the level sustained then to quote directly it is

init 0

The current funding for the server is at £300 at time of post we are £100 short. I have just been given a very tight deadline to get the remaining in. So if we don't hit the £400 mark by 09:00 02/03/06 (GMT) then Wombat will be closing the server. If this happens then all people who have donated will be refunded via paypal. Part of the reason is that he has been funding the server out of his company coffers for a while now.
Time of year again

Part of this is because there are a lot less OFP servers around, this means more people and this means more bandwidth we are eating. So donations are welcome at the usual place

Since people have been struggling with the correct order of installing the addons to make sure there is no problems we have released two new download packs.

Theses are a full [LOL] addon download and a rollup pack.

The full installer will create a [LOL] addon folder and install the addons in this location and create you a shortcut to the addon from your start menu.

The second addon (rollup) is for thosewho have already downloaded the addons we use. The rollup is set to overwrite the files that where installed by previous addons with the correct final versions. This means if you have installed the addons in the wrong order then this addon is the one for you as it will overwrite the incorrect files with the correct versions.



From now on the new addon packs will support installing to the @[LOL] addon folder as from the full installer and have the option of using the basic /addons folder from inside ofp.



Both downloads are available from the download section here

Due to FlashXP addon not being the most compatible of addons int he world we are now going to monitor it's use. Since this addon can force crashes of the server, we will now log uses of the addon and server crashes. If this is obviously an issue we will start banning people for continued use of this addon. The config file has been moddified so that people connecting will see this

Completed Maps
News
Posted by tricky


Since people have been submitting images of the maps that have been completed in the gallery section (link)



I have decided to extend the page which shows the lists of maps on majors (here). As you can now see all the maps that have been completed and had an image submitted have been added to the list. The tick will take you through to the relevant image in the gallery.
This does mean you have an easier way to check which maps have been completed before submitting an image. At the moment only members can update the list of completed maps, but anyone can submit an image to the gallery.

When submitting images please include the binder in the image so the name of the map can be confirmed and the objectives seen

Server Tuning
News
Posted by tricky


We are going to do some server tuning late one night this week, date to be set. This will mean we are going to be playing a special map to create a fair amount of load and bandwidth
The server will be restarted frequently during this cycle so that we can change settings and tune the server. This is to get the most out of the available bandwidth and get the server performing better.

This means that there will be no proper games during the map just lots and lots of ammo and lots of things to fly and drive and lots of thick AI to blow the living crap out of!

PayPal Donations
News
Posted by tricky


Right the pay pal account is now set up, we are taking donations to create a slush fund so that if we burn through our yearly transfer limit then we can increase it

Works out at £0.99 a Gb of data

You can donate at will but please read the notes
Please Note

All donations are going to be kept annonymous. We are not going to post details of who has donated and how much. We will post the total slush fund once it is up and running.

This is a purely volantary act we are not forcing anyone to donate and we are not going to set a minimum donation.

Donations DO NOT buy membership, priveledge or more rights given to any non paying players.

You are making this donation out of the love of your heart and because it will give you a lovely warm feeling in your stomach. Or if not then you are doing it to help fund the 4Gb of data we are churning out a day to fund you killing obsessions!

The server admins will thank you from the bottom of their hearts, well wallets (maybe).

Majors Game Server
News
Posted by tricky


Right the day has finally come. Majors is no more, well it won't be when it is powered back up. We have had the machine for 3 1/2 years and it has been nice and free and on a 100Mb backbone connection.

But since I no longer work at that place, the machine is now needed and is being wiped. I will have time to back up all the stuff from it but Majors will be no more.

The test server can not run as a fully pledge game server due to the amount of bandwidth that it consumes.

Other option may become available but for the time being there will be no public game server
