Re: I'm Moving

With me the problem is a combination of several things. 1st, Autotroll only works on Port 25 and my ISP blocks port 25. I can only send on port 465 via a secured connection with them. If Hamster is not an option, another tool that I learned about a few weeks ago would be stunnel (https://www.stunne...

Re: WinPlan32 in W7/W10

Anybody has an idea how to get VPA running without VM and adjusting the hosts screen resolution when in windowed mode? Anyone care for a 32/64-bit windows conversion for VPA? There is no way to run VPA without a VM (considering that DOSBOX is a VM). A 32-bit conversion would be a rewrite because VP...

Re: Circus Maximus API?

There's nothing like that. Since I'm running on AutoTroll so all of the directorys are on the PC the troll is running on. The AutoTroll folder on the server side just has the pages for the games and players. Then AT does everything via email. I must admit I never played on Circus Maximus... Does th...

Circus Maximus API?

Hi, I'm working on a version of PCC2 with some kind of host integration. The idea is to get rid of the need to mess with game directories, manually setting up shiplists, etc. Basically, I want the thing to offer a menu with your accounts, and let you browse and play your games. So far, I'm able to c...

Re: Spamalot

I find it most amusing that although "my" host has fewer than 100 user accounts, many of them inactive, and a totally nonstandard forum software, spammers still make the effort to create an account and cut&paste their illegible messages.

Well, it made me add a shadowban feature to my software...

Re: Windows 10

There also seems to be a way to make Windows 7's XP mode run on Windows 10, so that would be a way to make Winplan run on a 64-bit version:

Re: Minefield Identity

Outside of provoking a war between two other races, I've never seen much value in this ability. Does anyone have a tactical reason for doing this? You can find out whether two races are allied by dropping a minefield owned by A inside a minefield owned by B. You can get rid of an own or allied mine...

Re: Doing an ally's turn

If you're playing your ally's turn with their key, and you are using VPA or PCC, you should place both in different directories. You will then run Maketurn twice, and it will generate two different turn files with two different keys, and everything will be fine. Winplan and planets.exe make it diffi...

Re: VPA and Android?

Have you tried my web-based combat simulator already? It runs on desktop, tablet, and phone. I'm currently building a client based on the same technology. (Not the existing PCC2 Web, which sucks.) Don't hold your breath, but I'm making progress :-) Looks good. But it's web, right? Yes, it's web, be...

Re: Rebel Giga Freighter

PCC2 allowed me to build the ships without raising the tech level of the Hull. That must be a limitation of WinPlan because everything remains grey until I raise the tech level. AutoTroll seems to be sleeping so I'm waiting to see if I can get another BAD TRN FILE. Here is the contents of that emai...

Re: Rebel Giga Freighter

The Federation gets a free Rebel Giga Freighter hull built on its starting starbase. Since it is a Tech 10 hull, I have to raise my tech level to 10. Once I raised the tech to 10 I was able to place the order in the Starbase queue. I get a bad turn file for cheating if I don't raise the tech. I am ...

Re: PHOST Q&A Forum

Hm.. question again. Consider an ion storm of small radius but high voltage and speed, and a ship real close yet outside the hazardous zone. The storm will shred over the ship's coordinates but after storm movement the ship will end up outside the boundaries again. Will the ship be affected? edit: ...
