View Full Version : Legacy multiplayer launcher / demo launcher
January 14th, 2004, 05:31 PM
So I whipped up three handy jobbies for starting DM servers, joining DM servers, and playing back demos. You can grab it here (http://www.telusplanet.net/public/daewoo/download/lc0-4.zip). Remember to unzip it into your legacy folder and let it create new directories. You'll end up with three new folders lcdemo (this has the demo launcher), lcjoin (this is used to join servers), and lcserv which is for starting servers.
I'd appreciate some feedback, eventually these jobbies might end up as fully coded windows programs.

i can dig it , pretty cool so far. and it works good
i dont like to be to snappy but heres my input.
Bugs type things :
Msvbvm60.dll needs to be included with the package and either reside in all 3 cl folders , or should come with a setup program that installs the dll to the system32 directory. - going by this clean install of windows98se I just threw on this other comp over here , the run time file was needed. winxp and 2000 might already have the file.
In the skill map fraglimt dmtype field i set to 4 07 30 3.
everything was fine in game but the dm type was 1 , shoulda been 3.
Request type stuff :
um I think there should be a pulldown for the ip field , that also retain ips that get put in there , and also maybe have "check master " and "register to master "in that ip field ? donno
I was gonna say possibly make a check box for opengl an things , but I guess eventually try to cut it all down to just clicking on things rather than typing anything in, sept for maybe mb# and ip#.
browes bottons would help too.
welp that's all I got to say for nowah.. :P other than , It Rocks !

Hmmm dunno much about that .ddl jobby. If it becomes an issue I'll release an update. I'll look into the DM type bug. As for the requests that'll have to wait till there's a hardcoded widget as this one is driven by a batchfile. :-p

yea i know what yea mean , it runs off batchs, but the gui part of it looks for that Msvbvm60.dll in the windows/system32 directory , if its not there it will give you an error about a missing Msvbvm60.dll heh , i think its one of those vb runtime files about gui and windows or something.
its all good , but i just wanted ta let you know its looking for the file on a clean clean install of win98se.
seriously , in other words theres nothing on the system but win98se and legacy with the lancher jobby. so i had to google a dll to get it to work heh.

That's Vizual Bazic for ya. Didn't it require any other DLL files or ActiveX components?

I'm no programmer but you'd think there would be more than just one heh , but thats the only one in this case left that was needed to finish the process.
Not a big deal , and I think most programs come packed with the file so as long as the demo launcher isnt the very first thing installed on a comp then there shouldnt be any problems heh.
