Sounds good. We'll try for this Sunday.

Weapon range of the projectiles (tank shells, aurora, etc) were limited in part by projectile life - around 4 seconds I think.

The tippis files are no longer available online to my knowledge so i'd have to zip them up and email them on.

Some of the weapons have slightly unusual behaviour. The comet used to inflict different amounts of damage if you landed multiple hits in a short time span (probably some kind of bug in the burn code). It doesn't appear to do that on the daybreak server, though i'm unsure if that has resulted in the current comet being equal to the best of the old versions output, or the worst.

The vanu plasma mortar is also bugged in a somewhat unusual way - the hitcheck and damage source are offset from one another so when the bolt sticks in the ground the radiation origin is some distance below the surface (and below the visual effect), which is why you can often run across the area completely unharmed.
Glad to know someone has done a lot of the work already! If you can, please send those files to chord (at)

For PSCap :
Can we have shorcuts for Capture and Saving?
Can you add a save mode after the metadata mode? I always forget to edit or save.

Are you interested to have some packets right now?
And what is the biggest size for a packet? no limit?

I think we need some schedule for testing regulary, like each sunday if people can. Toughts?
Sure I'll make a shortcut for Capturing. Saving will be the standard Ctrl+S.
What do you mean you forget to edit and save? Doesn't the tool prompt you when you are about to exit or start a new capture that you haven't saved?

If you mean specific packets, not particularly. A lot of coding needs to be done before I can say which ones we really need. If you mean capture files, hold on to them until I make an online submission.

There is no capture size limit! Capture away.

A regular schedule would be good. Sundays might be the prime time for us.
