Hi all.

I'm Brenton Rothchild.

DOB: Jan 7, 1980

Location: Des Moines, Iowa, USA

I'm a Linux guy by trade, but love OP/OP2 and was thinking about developing my own OP3.  Much like others, I found this site :)

So, if there's anything I can do in any capacity for OP3 development, feel free to contact me (brothchild@dstorage.com, AIM:"SDS Storage Boy").

I'm good in the C/C++ area, used to develop in MFC/Windows in a former life (around the Win95/NT4.0 timeframe  :P ).  Now, I do a lot of Linux work, both kernel and application-level work.  I'm really well versed in UNIX in general, especially filesystems, systems management, and network programming.
I also did some 3D rendering work with VR setups (go powerglove  (thumbsup) )
a while ago.

Anyway, again: please let me know if there's anything I can do for any OP3 related projects in the way of programming, algorithms, graphics, etc.  I'm eager to help with anything to further the ideas I've seen around here!

--brentonr


PS -
Formally, I've gone to Iowa State University for Computer Engineering (bachelor's);  I was also involved with the ISU Solar Car Team (see Team PrISUm Solar Car Homepage (http://www.prisum.iastate.edu)) as an electrical team member, then co-leader
of the electrical team.  Thus, I'm pretty well versed with microcontrollers,
embedded software environments, solar technologies, battery chemistries
(limited to lead-acid, lithium [including polymer], and NiMH), and a few
other areas related to general solar racing  :D

Hey, all! I'm Marauder_Pilot.

If you're a Mechwarrior: Dark Age fan, I'm Maraduer on MWRealms and WizKids (Although I rarely visit WK anymore), and Marauder_Pilot on Comstar ROM and Solaris 7.

I LOVE Outpost 3, and, a while back, offered to remake Knux's site. However, stuff caught up with me, and I wasn't able to do that. However, if Kunx wants, I'll still do that. Actually, I'm working on an Outpost 3 website as I type!


Anywho, my REAL name is Don, I live in St.Thomas, Ontario, I'm 16, and spend WAY too much time at my PC. WAY too much time.

I love Outpost 2, and, to a lesser extent, Outpost.

I do some VB programming, and will be learning C++ next year in my Grade 12 Computers class.

Aside from Outpost 2, I play Red Alert 2 alot, and spend too much time in any Mechwarrior or Battletech game I can find. I'm a HUGE Battletech fan. I play Mechwarrior: Dark Age, and am getting into Classic Battletech.

I'd like to do anything I can for Outpost 3-either of them-so, If you have menial, simple work, send it to me! :unsure:

Hello. My name is Silverion. I am AKA Digital Ice. I play OP2, Wolfenstein:Enemy Territoy, Call of Duty, and Runescape. I am active on thefunnyfarm.net, a host to many clans, including the clan I am in called{iCs}, a clan focusing on FPS games like W:ET and CoD. I might think about joining one for OP2...

Anyways, I host my own website, available at http://digital.dyns.net (http://digital.dyns.net). I keep information about those games I play on that site, aswell as downloads, music, webgames, and funny videos...

I've been on the internet since 1995 ish. I have gone by many nicks until Digital Ice came to me. I used that prominently through 2000-2002, I just now came up with Silverion about six months ago.

I program for The Palace chat client, I know HTML, CSS, VB, Javascript, BASIC, and CyBasic.

Thank you for your welcomes and all that, and I hope that I can be a part of this community very well. :D

Post by: Hooman on February 28, 2004, 01:12:32 AM
Hello,

I've been interested in reverse engineering Outpost 2 for years now but I always get too busy and forget about it before making much progress. I've been reading the posts on the topic and I'm fairly impressed with how far you guys are getting. I'm interested in helping out on this (although I tend to be a little busy). I have a fair bit of experience in C/C++ and x86 Assembly (among other languages like VB, Java, Pascal, etc. and some assembly for the Sparc with a bit of 68k, 6502, MIPS, Itanium, PDP-11) I have a lot of experience in finding out how various games store their data as well as tracing though assembly code. I've managed to make various simple editors (Hex codes work for me  :D  ) for a number of games including: Pax Imperia, Warcraft, Warcraft II (not much point I admit), Dune2, Dune 2000 (I actually bothered with graphics for this one :D  ), Civ, Civ II, Legend of the Red Dragon, Usurper, and especially Trade Wars, countless emulator games, etc. Come to think of it, there aren't many games I own that I haven't tried editing in some way.

Anyways, I'm nearing the end of a Computer Science degree (Honours) with a concentration in Game Design. (Actually a combined degree with Pure Math honours and a concentration in cryptography, for those who care  :D  )

So, in short, I can follow along with the posts on the OP2 DLL's, PE headers, etc. and I'm interested in helping out. Anyone working on that stuff want to point me in a particular direction they need work on?

I'm called Philippe. 17 years old and I live in Quebec, Canada.

I played my first Outpost 2 game 5 or 6 years ago . After what I slowly stopped, having only my friend to play with, after WON was shut down. I checked every 6 month maybe what was new in the Outpost X universe, and now I find this forum and IRC channel.

I'm a BSD/linux user since 3 years, I know basic programming using C, php, C++, but nothing big, I'm still not in university and I study Pure and Applied Science into the CEGEP.

I really hope that the user base is still strong enough to improve the game in the upcoming release .. if there is one .. or just to provide a hot nest where we can gather and play a good game when we feel like it.

From now on I'll stay tuned to keep me up to date, in case I can contribute.

     It's been a couple of weeks (I think) since I've joined, and so I'm finally putting up this introduction/bio.  I have a couple of Q's about playing IRC, though.  Can it be done within a LAN?  Can OP2 be played freely across the Internet even though I may be in a LAN?  I heard that sometimes the IP for every computer in a LAN is identical for Internet servers.  Might that pose a problem?
     I am not an OP2 master, however.  I played it a LOT when I had it 6 years ago, but then gave the game to a friend.  Now, though, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the OPU team, I can play one of my favorite strategy games again!
    Anyway, if someone wants to play a game with me, I'm game.  And, if you want to practice your German, Russian, or whatever, I like to practice foreign languages, too.  Oh, by the way, I'm 18 and I graduated from high school last Friday, June 25th.  Looking forward to some games and chats!

Hello, I'm Nomi, or Sarah to those who know me.  I found this site when searching Google on a whim.  I haven't played OP2 in several years, but I used to a lot back when WON was still up and active.  It's a shame Sierra gave up on it, but we all know that so I needn't lament the fact!

I'm 22 and in college right now.

I like RPGs, strategy games, and adventure games.

I was one of the leaders of the old Jedi clan back in the day, going by:
Mistress Nomi [Jedi]£.  I don't know how many of you remember that clan or its leaders, but I still see Masters Kadesh and Borden from time to time, and Master Kish is my brother, so I see him a lot!  We were founded during the time KORT was still around, and if I remember right, Black Dragon separated from us to form their clan.  I hope there aren't still hard feelings!  Anyway, it's good to see at least a few references to familiar names and events.  I read elsewhere that Snappy is doing well and is at an AirForce academy.  Good for him!  Anyway, I'm off to post in clan threads!

Hello everyone.  I think its about time I registed here, since I'm a long time Outpost 2 fan.  I could put a decent bet in that I've played Outpost 2 longer than anyone here!  I've been playing since the original demo, and I got the game as soon as it came out (When it was still costly).  I played a fair bit of multiplayer back in the SIGS days,  but I haven't kept up with things since it got shut down.  Anyways maybe if I can figure out how to use all this multiplayer stuff I can get playing again.

Hello All...

I was once known as the person ¤ÅM¤ Leviathan, or later known as {PÅ}Shady.

At one point in time I created a clan, it was called the Årcane Mystics.
Within 2 weeks of indoctrination, the Arcane Mystics were the 3rd most powerful clan, at the time, compared to Panthers and Shadows.

After many good games, and many fuedal arguments in WON, I decided to disband the AM along with fellow founder Atma.

I decided to create a guild of gamers well known to all of WON. I talked with a few of my friends, Falcon and Stalking Panther, and we decided (after a long conversation with falcon) we would call it the Patriarch Alliance. Not a clan, but an order of clans. Or as some would see, a training ground to get into a clan.

Original Founders: Atma Arcane, Falcon (Freelance), Stalking Panther, Shady Panther.


Now it's almost 2 years later, and I have no contact with Stalk, or Falcon

Would like to get back in touch with all my old friend and enemies!

Paco, Riledo, Rondt, Norad, etc...

I first started playing in 1999 op2 was the first pc game i everplayed, and the first game i ever played online.  My first clan was Team Fox clan after that  I hooked up with Admiral S3 and followed him all the way to ADL ( Alpha Defense League)   Im 23 now and was happy as a pig in crap when i stumbled onto a site  where some guy was disgruntled about the new management of this new Op2 cummunity , but he was nice enuff to leave a link.

Op2 attracted alot of game designers...programers hackers..   when WON was on its way out i always wondered why none of these computer savvy people took up the torch. God knows if i was as smart with this stuff as some of you guys i would have lol but im glad lev and his crew did their thing and it looks great.

Hi, y'all!

I'm Wild_Targ just about everywhere I go, so if you see it or a variation thereof, it's probably me.  I'm on MSN, Yahoo!, and AIM using Trillian (http://www.ceruleanstudios.com) (but not ICQ or IRC yet), took classes on Visual Basic and C++ but then a lot of life events happened.  Now I'm just married, and just getting back into using my computer after two years of chaos and uncertainty.  There's more about me on my profile (just in case someone is curious), and I only have 1.5 right now.  Might download 2 v 1.3.3 or 1.3.4 in the near future.
     I have been using computers from age eleven, know DOS and some broken UNIX command-line, never quite got into computers professionally, and really like the atmosphere of OP1.5 (although I must confess the gameplay is wacky and waaaaay to abstract to be rightly called a 'game'; more like a managerial simulator).

Well I found my way to the old forums and was disappointed to see hardly any activity.  Then I found this one!  w00t!

I'm PrincessLadyBug. That's a lot to type so feel free to call me LB or Bugley.

I'm probably old enough to be your mother, but I'm a geek girl and I play a few games when real life leaves me some fun time.

I got into OP2 about 4 years ago. I played it for a while and then real life stepped in and cut my gaming time. I'm back at it and more than a little rusty. I know it's lame but I like the colony games and I'm having trouble keeping my colonists alive. Those little buggers don't reproduce fast enough. :P

I've already found a few hints, so thanks!


Hope to see some of you around,
LB

I spend a LOT of time (waaaay too much) at another forum, Total War Center, where I go by the same name.

Post by: Arcalane on November 25, 2007, 05:54:12 AM
Let's see... my first taste of outpost was Outpost 1. I still play it now and again as it co-operates with my PC, mostly. When I first tried the Outpost 2 demo, I found it lacking, as it barely gave any instruction as to how to complete the demo mission (evacuating an Eden or Plymouth colony prior to a volcanic eruption) and little explanation of the gameplay mechanics. It wasn't until I was attempting to reinstall Lords of the Realm 2 that I saw an advert for Outpost 2 on the back of the Siege Pack's manual. I had heard decent things of it from another contact, and with my curiousity and sense of adventure on the move, decided to check OP2 out for the hell of it. I found OPU by sheer luck - though the link I followed was broken, I was not one to give up easily, and made my way to the main page, and then went after Outpost 2.

At first, without the manual or wiki to aid me, I found things... quite tough, actually. But I persisted. Eventually, over the scheme of the first few Plymouth campaign missions, a few Colony Games and a quarter-dozen Space Race skirmishes with a close friend, I picked up all the necessary mechanics and know-how to make the game (and my colonies) work relatively smoothly. I admit I still don't know the ins and outs of the tech tree, and I've only been playing for... two or three days, tops, but I managed to learn it quickly.

My plans here? Kick the wiki into gear and get it organized. It's a terrible mess and many pages are just blank and imageless. Maybe try my hand at some online games (I do not play very aggressively, so not exactly suited for Last One Standing) and/or map making.

I'm from the UK, and live in Cambridge. I prefer using Hamachi to play online as my router and firewall are a touch finicky.

'nuff said.

Greetings guys.

Name is Tim, from Seattle, WA area. Born September '86

My uncle, who happens to be a mechanical engineer for Aerospace introduced me to Outpost a while back. Enjoyed it but I had gotten used to RTS by that time, so the turn-based was a little difficult to grasp. Outpost 2 obviously made that change and I enjoyed for years until I lost the CD.

I'm glad this site exists.

I'm a Computer Science/Computer Engineering major in school, so while I'm not super familiar with any particaular lanugage at this point, I am pretty interested in dev (wiki or OP 3). Looked into working with the Homeworld community as well, but haven't been able to work around school/the rest of my life.

Well..  I remember when OP1 was released, I was enrolled in Electronic Game Design.  I remember the hype and the dissapointment that was so palitable over it's release.  Friend of mine bought it and had trouble running it stable.  Of course he'd pre-ordered it and got essentially the beta version.   Most of the gaming community then promptly delegated Outpost to defunct history.
In recent years I'd been poking around at old games to see old ideas from a fresh perspective.  To see that a community of Outpost fans actually existed was a bit of a surprise.  I'm interested to give Outpost a second chance.  Hope I can get it working on WinXP  I don't seem to be having the success that others here have enjoyed.

Time to get back and play a couple of games then Miz
Perhaps, but I would probably be a ghost my former self :).  The time invested in this game to know the fastest build order and the research tech tree backwards and forwards is probably long gone from my memory capacity.

Been reading over some threads and noticed some people think us "PA" People were cheaters.  It has been almost 8 years since I last played and still being called cheaters is a badge of honor in my opinion.

I don't think most realized back then, or now, that myself and the others like Falcon and Stalking were pretty much the originators of the build/research order and even the no mark style game play.  We were also the ones who popularized the 3 by 2 ore collection method.  3 smelters and 2 cargo trucks per smelter for each mine that was pretty much the standard used.

I still remember Stalking and I teaching Rondt how to play the game.  Come to think of it, I wonder what ever happened to my friends.  Kind of fell out of touch with any of them after about 2001 when I went on to College.

Disagree, but its matter of personal opinion.  High Mark games were the standard until our "crew" I guess you could call it started doing No Mark stuff.  When its a race to see who can compete the fastest it is more thrilling then the slow paced mark game play.

Yes, no mark game removes the full potential of this game. If you're really that good and fast, then you'll do just as fine in a long mark game.

Especially since in low mark games, Eden is at a disadvantage. Such big of a disadvantage that hey can't compensate. In long mark games, however, the balance shifts in favor of Eden, but Plymouth can still use tactics (a lot of tactics) to make use of their own advantages and stand a good chance against them.

Don't worry about being a cheater today. Cheats are removed. You can only be a n00b tactic user, which gets you rapidly hated.

I'd actually disagree with you there Hidiot. I'd say a No mark game opens up the full potential of the game. As CK9 so wrongly puts it, it's not about who gets weapons first, it's a lot more than that. You always have to watch what your enemy is doing - can you afford to expand to a second mine or will your opponent take you down because you waste ore on just that ? You can go for stronger units or better techs ? Upgrade of smelters to get more ore or upgrade of units ?
As it were back then, games with no mark could usually go past mark 1000 or higher, because no clear advantage could be decided until then.

With a high mark game you just get everything in the package by the time the mark is up and the games outcome is usually decided by location rather than skill. Get a place with easy to defend bottlenecks and you'll easily ravage anyone caught out in the open.


Sure, Eden stands no chance in a 1 vs 1 situation in a small map vs Plymouth. But, toss in a big distance between players or a few allies and it's by no means impossible to survive as Eden.



I guess Miz is referring to PÅ players virtually being the best players when they were around - so naturally they were accused of cheating when they usually won vs nub's. never caught any of them cheating though, the creators were at least opposed to cheating.


Anyways Miz, you should get on IRC and play a couple of games with us. I'm sure the stuff will come back quite quickly ;)

As far as I know none of us cheated in real games.  Did we get accused a lot, sure, but I think it was more a player's own arrogance and not believing they could get beaten so easily without cheats.  I agree with you highlander in regards to no marks.  I found them much more strategically orientated then the High Mark counterparts.  It forced a player to learn.

In no mark games it was more about being able to efficiently move into the different phases of the game from start, mid game, and end game effectively and efficiently.  In no mark games in my opinion you needed to understand how to play the game, what research order was best given the current situation, and so forth.  Where as in a high mark game really it didn't come down to anything other then evening the playing field.  It became less about skill the higher the mark was.  I remember a lot of 1000+ mark (no mark) games being played.

In my experience, it's always whomever gets the weapons first will wipe the floor with the others on smaller maps.  However, what you say holds true for medium sized maps and up.  Piechart is a boarderline map, as people who think like lev do rush through a building order and get weapons as fast as they can.  Meanwhile, other people will think along the same lines you talk about.

Personally, I think small maps should always be mark games, otherwise it's over too quickly to be any fun.

Out of curiosity... are the ore trainers still available? i take great pleasure in playing the colony games and currently have no interest in multi until all the rust has been rubbed off.

also, is there any better way to communicate with you guys, i noticed the last post was in august

if you look through more than simply the introduction thread I'm sure you'll find the answers to all your questions.

For OP2 related questions search through the Outpost2 section of the forum.

If you wish to communicate then i suggest you make use of IRC :)

Heh, yes welcome. First new member in a while. The signup has probably been broken since August.  :blush: There's been activity in other sections though.

Btw, you may want to consider using edit if you need to add more to your post before anyone replies.

I vaguely remember an ore trainer somewhere, but I can't remember the details at the moment. There might be something in the programming forum about such a project, or someone else with some info on how to handle that.

Hey, I'm new here. In the next few days I'll be trying to dl some of the patches and get online. I've never played online before, only the missions. However, I'm a good Starcraft/AoE player, so I should catch on quicker...

I'm having problems with the Eden missions tho... Mission 4?? It's the mission where you have to extract info from labs about the blight. My scouters won't transfer the lab info??? Any ideas?

Read the briefing.  It tells you to move the Scouts right next to the lab.  Make sure you don't click on the Lab itself.

As Sirbomber says.

The scout needs to stand still for a few seconds on a tile adjacent to the labs (I don't think a corner works, though).

Hi all,

Elwood here!   :)

Years ago I bought a copy of Outpost at a used software store and got hooked.  So when Outpost 2 came out I bought it right away and have been playing it on and off ever since.  I most enjoy playing colony games because of their unscripted nature and the ability to start a game, play for a little while, save it, and come back later when I have time and pickup where I left off.  

I was really pleased to find your forum and so many people who still enjoy this great game.  I've already upgraded to the OPU version of the game and tried the additional colony games that come with it, plus the New Colony Games (http://forum.outpostuniverse.net/index.php?showtopic=4734) created by angellus.

My hat's off to the all folks who built this place and work to keep it going.

Elwood

Hello helpmenow!

I hope, the mysteriousness of your presence here will soon become clearer. Right now I'm just not seeing what you want.

Outpost 2 is about the time after Earth got destroyed by a huge meteor and only a few humans managed to escape to some other planet which they called New Terra. New Terra wasn't exactly Earth and thus they had to stay in their structures and tubes and they also began to terra form the planet. Some colonists didn't like the terra forming and founded another colony called "Plymouth" (the original one being "Eden"). The microbe which was designed for terra forming got out of control and they had to evacuate again.

Hi, there, I've read your post. I wondered, does it have to be a new map made by you?? Maybe it would just be enough to start Outpost 2 twice, host your own multiplayer game without disasters. You'd just have to make sure the other colony doesn't die off.
(I'm suggesting this because I don't remember any custom colony game without disasters)

If you really want to have your own map, it would require the Outpost 2 mapper to create a basic map and a compiler for a mission-dll to start and initialize the mission. Of course you can do that, but installing a compiler for that would be a little bit of a hassle.

For that matter, does anyone else still have their Outpost SDK ready who could quickly solve this problem? I still have mine on a different system.
Title: Master Introduction Thread
Post by: TH300 on April 16, 2013, 05:18:21 AM
Welcome to the Outpost Universe!

Maps in Outpost 2 are made off two parts, the map file which describes the terrain and the dll file which is for placement of mining beacons, disasters, ai etc.). The mapper is mainly useful to create the map file. It can also be used to generate a source code file for the dll, which will have to be compiled in a compatible environment (i.e. with the SDK). You, as a non-programmer, should be able to create the map file and place mining beacons and units with the mapper. Once you did that I'll happily compile the dll for you.
Title: Master Introduction Thread
Post by: megagamer2010 on April 16, 2013, 01:42:44 PM
Thanks for the responses all!

Flashy, thanks for your suggestion.  I have done this a couple of times, and can do this ok, but would rather not have to get two bases up and run all the time, it's a bit stressful...

TH300, I'll see what I can do in the mapper. I have worked with it a few times, but could not understand all that had to be done.  However, with what you have told me, I will see what I can do, and then send you a map file.

Once I have a completed Map, what would I do to be able to play it in game?

Also, I would enjoy playing this game with other people.  I don't personally care for 'Last Man Standing' types, but would play that.  With this game, leisure play is more fun to me.
Title: Master Introduction Thread
Post by: Flashy on April 16, 2013, 05:18:03 PM
Well, if it helps, you don't actually have to create a new map file, you can just pick one of the old map files if it is too much for you. Someone with a working mission sdk could generate a dll file for you, which just has have a name that begins with a c  (in order to make the game list it as a "colony game" type) , is not longer than 7 characters (excluding the .dll file extension) and placed in your outpost 2 folder (along with the map file).
Title: Master Introduction Thread
Post by: megagamer2010 on April 17, 2013, 02:16:00 PM
Ok, I have made a map file for Outpost 2.  It is very simple and basic as far as the layout.  I have three files in the place where I saved the map file, one is the .map file, one is .map.dat, and the other is one that I made by 'Generating Code' in the OP2Mapper, it is .map.cpp.

(If y'all can help me understand what to do from this point, I might be able to do this myself...)
Title: Master Introduction Thread
Post by: Flashy on April 17, 2013, 05:41:59 PM
It has been a while since I've used the mapper, but as far as I know, the .dat file saves building/unit/beacon information exclusively for the mapper. The .cpp file is a c++ source file that contains aforementioned information ready for inclusion into a dll file. To do it yourself, you'd need some basic understanding of c++ programming and a little knowledge of the Outpost 2 software development kit. If you think it's worth the effort, you can look into sirbomber's helpful tutorials that explain OP2 programming (without explaining c++ basics) http://forum.outpost2.net/index.php?showtopic=4796 (http://forum.outpost2.net/index.php?showtopic=4796)

If you prefer to ask another helpful member of this forum, you'd just have to give the name of your map file and that .cpp file (assuming it contains the start building placements you wish for) and someone could probably do this part for you.


As a little sidenote, you may want to create a new topic for this, I'm sure the others don't mind, but it would take up less space in the introduction thread.
Title: Master Introduction Thread
Post by: TH300 on April 18, 2013, 05:11:55 PM
If you can't do it yourself, put the map file and the cpp file into a zip archive and upload it in our file forum (under general interest).

Does it have to do with being written for for 1994 - 32 bit computer/now on 64 bit 2016 thing?

Welcome!

Outpost was written for 16-Bit computers (specifically Windows 3.1 which never came in a 32bit version). 32Bit flavors of Windows were able to run 16bit code using an emulation core (NTVDM I believe) which was dropped in 64Bit versions.

If you have any issues running the package we put together head on over there and post away, I'll gladly answer any questions you may have.

Hello, welcome.

My current computer has no optical drive. They're getting pretty rare these days. I have piles of old CDs and DVDs at home, but nothing to read them with anymore.

Hint: USB External optical drive. At most $20 in the US. No idea in Cambodia or China or wherever you are these days.

I'm locking this thread since we don't really need a master thread in a dedicated forum. Introductions are still welcome, just create your own threads.
