  1. Reduced max disaster time from 5 hours to 3.
  2. It'd require a fair amount of planning to make it seem like more than "I'm with a bunch of bots that don't shoot me" type of thing. I have thought about it a few times though, just haven't really came up with a solid idea yet.
  3. [blurb]Double favorite vehicles and improved AI for Pets and MDGs![/blurb] New Stuff: • You can now favorite two vehicles! • Pets will now open doors to your home instead of destroying them. • Greatly improved the AI for the Mobile Defense Gun, it now will not attack your own pets. • Mobile Defense Guns won’t will not attack vehicles you (or other players depending on what setting you have it on) are currently in. Improvements/Tweaks: • Mobile Defense Gun now use the player name instead of the player ID, this will prevent them from befriending incorrect players after you leave the server and someone else joins with your player ID. • Redid the object sync code, it should now complete syncing all the objects before the player leaves the spawn room, so hopefully players will no longer be able to see the objects pop into proper position. • Ballista and Mobile Flak Truck are now on the random vehicles list. • Ballista, Pirate Ship, Mobile Flak Truck, and several aerospace vehicles will now show up on the desert death match map. • Tweaked the points at which the speed alarms go off for the Stuka and the Shilone so players aren’t tricked into thinking they’re going to slow when they can still go much slower. • Removed the camera collisions from the street signs. • Increased the purchase delay for the pirate ship, should help prevent players from buying two on top of each other. • Removed the plasma ceiling guns from the advanced weapons room, this should make it more of a stealth mission. • Mobile Defense Gun has had its price bumped from $1,000.00 to $5,000.00. • Improved how the disconnect code triggers, this should improve the PIN screen (there have been a few issues that randomly force players to reenter their pin number, hopefully this will be fixed now). Bug Fixes: • The rewrite of the sync code potentially make it more stable, but I doubt the crash that could have happened ever did. • Pirate Ship is now immune to EMP effects. • Pirate Ship’s sink animation no longer collides (so the player will now fall into the water when it dies correctly). • Pirate ship passengers will no longer be stuck in the floor. • Pirate ship z entry marker is now visible on the outside of the ship. • Fixed the spelling of the Vacant Building. • Fixed a bug with the favorite weapons code that would cause your favorite weapons phone numbers not to show up if you didn’t have them favorited in order (IE if you had slots 0 1 and 3 used you wouldn’t see 3 in the list). • All favorite weapons phone numbers will now correctly allow you to add them to the redial number (and have a description). • The AI mountain lion on the ski hill will no longer take falling damage, I’m hoping this will keep it from dying all the time. • All cash registers in the movie theater now work. • Rotated desert flak cannon once again in hopes that it won’t dump you into the ocean anymore. Note: Several records were also reset.
  4. [blurb]Welcome a pirate ship and ballista to the ever growing list of units![/blurb] New Stuff: • Added the ballista, a slow moving weak unit that fires large bolts that do extreme damage. • Added the pirate ship, which is able to catch fish as well as having a powerful broadside cannon attack. Improvements: • Doubled the speed differences required to detect a collision on vehicles, this should help get rid of the random collision damage vehicles take on the server. • Updated the taxi paths so taxies can now pick up players on the new pathways added in the last patch. • Updated how the chinook drop works (doesn’t have collisions anymore) which should help keep them from lagging when they collide with things midair. • Cleaned up the anti-spawn kill script; it shouldn’t print out messages twice anymore. • Optimized the hardened warrior perk, it should be less intensive on the server when the player takes lots of damage. Bug Fixes: • Fixed a floating street sign near the pet shop. • Turrets in the army base shouldn’t appear floating anymore (hopefully). • Fixed a bug with the police patrol job not updating the radar points, something that I must have broke when I optimized that code.
  5. @Threve Throw this in your data folder. input02.cfg
  6. Hey nice to see from you again Dthdealer, comics made me chuckle. Anyways onto why you're actually here: 1. This issue is caused 90% by a need to install/reinstall directx9.0c. 2. No, in fact I'm contacting Brandan right now to redirect the forums link to here and to kill that download, its a super out of date version (probably 3 years or more old). 3. Works on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 for me, although a lot of people seem to suffer from black screens. 4. If you have a working copy of Windows 7 you should be able to install the W3dHub Launcher and install ECW with no problems (you might get black screens in game after the install but you should at least be able to get it installed with the new launcher, if the new launcher isn't working on a clean install of Windows 7 (ideally fully updated) we'll have to pull Danpaul in here). Edit: I stand corrected, that version of the game is almost 5 years old.
  7. [blurb]A Boomerang and Throwing Spear have joined ECW's ever growing list of weapons![/blurb] New Features: • Street signs have been re-added to ECW! These used to exist before 2.0 but were removed due to their performance impact. There is now a config setting that allows the host to decide if the signs can be run over or not (allowing for performance saving, this might get turned off if the server seems to suffer from it). • The Throwing Spear now joins ECW’s ever growing list of weapons (although this has been the first new addition to that list in a long time). • Another new weapon is the Boomerang, which is one of the few ranged weapons with unlimited ammo (it comes back after being thrown). • The Turrets in A69 and other military complexes are now dropped in by chinooks instead of instantly respawning and being able to kill you (this was actually added a long time ago but it must have got lost in a roll back). • Certain parts of town will now appear more lively as I’ve added more pathways to the path network for the AI, expect to see cars using more back roads. • EcwServerSettings.ini now allows the host to define the debug phone numbers instead of them being hard coded. Tweaks: • The crime system now announces bounties at a steadier rate, should make it easier for players to know where they are in the crime system. • Train crossing script zones have been resized to hopefully reduce the double gate opening animation seen client side (kind of doubt it will now that I’ve watched the issue happen more but it’s worth a try). • Mysterious Tower now does 1/10th of the damage it used to, should make it easier to destroy. • Welfare Checks and the Cannon Fodder perk payouts are now multiplied by the JOB_PAYOUT_MULTIPLIER (which for the server is currently set at 2). Bug Fixes: • Fixed a bug in how the crime system calculated crimes committed, hopefully will fix negative crime counts, if this is the issue of negative crime counts it should also make the bounty ladder easier to climb. • The driver and passengers of the Box Truck/Mobile Flak Truck will no longer take damage from explosions outside the vehicle. • Cloak generate item now displays the correct price tag of $200,000.00. • Mobile Flak Truck’s PT now displays its price. • The black mesh under the map used as a terrain crack fix now longer has collisions, also fixed the small piece of it showing at the Nuclear Power Plant. • Fixed several spelling mistakes and typos.
  8. I've actually seen the black screen on Win 7 as well, although it didn't start happening on any version of windows until about the last year I'd say :\
  9. That's very odd since ECW actually uses your forum name instead of the set nick name option...
  10. As previously stated in other release topics ECW runs an old version of scripts that has some compatibility issues, you can try changing the resolution in the launcher settings, if that doesn't work you can run config as admin. As for the black screen some people report that turning on "Disable fullscreen optimizations" in Properties->Capability fixes the issues. Others can only run the game in certain resolutions, I myself have to log out and log back into windows and boot ECW as quickly as possible or I get the black screen. Sorry I can't be of more help, the black screen issue only started within the last year and it seems to disappear and appear for users randomly.
  11. You're spot on, the original artist has Zastava in the tags https://www.turbosquid.com/FullPreview/Index.cfm/ID/870761
  12. Yeah the base model is shared by 3 other vehicles in game.
  13. [blurb]This update comes with a new event and vehicle as well as many tweaks and bug fixes![/blurb] New Stuff: • Added the new nuclear strike disaster, the longer the player survives they make more money. Note being in aircraft or far from the mainland does not qualify, standing on top of sky scrapers pays less as well. • Added the mobile Flak Truck, a medium sized vehicle with a large flak cannon mounted on the back. Tweaks: • Fishing buoys now pay 2 times their previous amount. • Reduced the price of the dreadnaught from 2 million to 1 million dollars. • Ogel Cat event now pays twice as much as it originally did. • The island with the portal to Mars now teleports to Hell instead. • The armored cars in the armored car even now have a much cooler explosion when they die instead of using the nod truck death. • Calling a player that is outside of cell range now plays the busy signal for the player calling. • Money spawned from the armored cars now have random facing to make the piles of money look more chaotic. • Updated the version of Rp2ServerSettings.ini 18, it will automatically recreate itself next time a game is hosted. Bug Fixes: • Previously Canada was missing collision zones, we’ve sealed it up so the player can’t escape into the void. • Nuke explosions are now sized different depending on the power, nuclear mutant cat’s blast is biggest followed by the nuclear ICBM, finally is the nuke artillery. • Added missing water wake effects for several ships/boats in ECW. • Fixed the gunboat animation, the turret will no longer snap forward for a split second at the end of the animation loop. • Renamed the Apache Longbow to just be Apache Helicopter since it doesn’t have the longbow radar. • Fixed a bug with the AI scud launchers not giving the proper kill messages, now you should see what killed you instead of “X died.” • Fixed a bug with the phone when you go to hell, originally if the player messed around enough they could end up with a permanently disabled phone, this should now be fixed. • Slowed down a timer on one of the PT scripts, it was potentially triggering 100 times a second which is completely needless. • Added some default weapon selection for the AI if their weapon can't be granted (stability fix). • Visiting Mars via areospace vehicles is now tracked. • Added a missing church blurb for the abomination disaster. • Fixed medium money pile model, previously it was using the small money pile model. • Fixed a bug with the armored car event that caused soldiers not to spawn from the car when it died. Note: You will need to re-favorite your vehicles due to the new addition.
  14. Can binary files trigger this? Because I'm pretty sure I sent all the mix/dat/pkg files through the mix tool at this point.
  15. This validation issue was claiming that it couldn't validate the previous release version, even after I tried deleting the previous copy and bringing it back down it still failed to validate :\
