Re: When Are We Getting BGE 1.8?

Unfortunately, MapForge has been delayed, and that has, as a ripple effect, delayed BGE v1.8. But it shouldn't be much longer.

Re: Ambush!

Welcome, okiefire. Rab46 might have some tips for you. He's a prolific BGE module-maker. And I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you might have. Start small, learn a couple of features at a time, and study how existing modules were put together. It would be awesome to see more Ambush-relat...

Re: "Macromedia projector has stopped working"

Try removing "ShockWave 3D Asset Xtra" from the "Xtras" folder and see if that allows the app to launch. Another thing to try, which I am re-posting from another forum: "Another solution I found:In the Nvidia control panel, in the tab Global Settings, CUDA GPU value, put to nothing, or uncheck the c...

Re: "Macromedia projector has stopped working"

It's not really a bug on my end. Everything was working fine until a new version of an nVidia video card driver was pushed out via a Windows Update. It pretty much depends on them fixing the bug they introduced.

Re: Bigger Than 40x40?

For the Close Assault game, I just used a pre-gridded map, rather than a blank grid overlay, to extend the playing area. No reverse-engineering required. :)

Re: Bigger Than 40x40?

You might try copying a grid PNG from BGE's "Grids" folder to the Components folder. Then in BGE, place the grid alongside the gridded map area (which is 40x46 when using a hexgrid), and lock it down once it's perfectly positioned. You might have to use the Nudge feature to get it to align exactly. ...

Re: Bran New. - Looking to Adapt a set of Minature Rules.

Welcome, Blackbird. Even the least expensive BGE client allows for an additional participant to play without a license, so you shouldn't need another license if this will be a two-player game. Yes, you can place modular boards as Components to create a larger play area. If you will be exceeding the ...

Re: When Are We Getting BGE 1.8?

I need to set aside a day to package it up for distribution, once I get the first alpha release of MapForge out the door. Can't give a specific date, but within a month, I'd guess.

Re: Visual Aids don't appear on client instance

By the way, if you manually import the art on the player client, it's OK for the art to be over 2 MB, as it won't need to be transmitted over the network.

Re: Visual Aids don't appear on client instance

You might need to resize the visual aids to ensure that they are under 2MB uncompressed. 2MBs is the largest message that BRPG can transmit via the networking code (exception: maps get sliced up into rows, so they can be bigger). But given that you have both clients on the same computer, and you've ...

Re: "Macromedia projector has stopped working"

BRPG has never handled maps greater than 4000x4000 pixels well. The reason is that the Fog of War feature can't generate images large enough to cover the entire map. Is your GM license unaffected? Odd about your Floating License being lost. It might be that Win 98 expects preferences files in a diff...

Welcome, dj_himp. Does launching in Safe Mode allow BGE to run properly? Not a fix, just a troubleshooting step. Also, see if anything mentioned in this thread helps. An actual fix could depend on Nvidia putting out a new driver that fixes the bug they recently introduced, or it may depend on the ne...

Re: "Macromedia projector has stopped working"

Those versions are a decade old. Interesting that they run, but no, they can't be updated. The only thing of possible interest would be to compare the contents of the Xtras folder in an old running version and a new non-functioning version, to assist in determining if it is a specific Xtra that is c...

No idea if this will work, but it may be worth a shot: try removing the Flash Asset xtra and QuickTime (QT6Asset) xtra from the Xtras folder. See if that allows it to launch.

Re: "Macromedia projector has stopped working"

No, but I think if you could roll back your computer to before the automatic windows update that broke things, you should be OK.

BTW, this all occurred BEFORE Director was discontinued, so it is not related.
