I think your "at" key is stuck. :)

That is a mistake. Thanks for the catch. I was going off the data in my RoH file and I guess I don't have any Lieutenants. Is Lieutenant the starting rank? It must have a value of 0 in the file (the others are 1 through 5). I'll send you an updated version when I get it fixed. If anyone else has bug...

I have emailed my java app to BZA and OMJ. Let me know if either of you didn't receive it, if something seems broken, or if you have any comments or questions.

I have an app written in java that does the same thing. I sent it to Sean to approve and add to his web site but I haven't seen it on the CM page yet or heard back from him. Anyway, I don't have a page to host it but if anyone is interested in trying it because the DOS app above does not work for th...

Even if we wanted to make everyone use the same ship we cannot because the available ships are random. But I think part of the competition is using your own designs. It will in part show who is luckiest, the best player, and the best ship designer.

So the idea is that we start a pilot on Sunday (or thereafter) and see how far we can get him/her before Saturday night and then post or email the results? I think it might be interesting to start a forum topic each Sunday and each person can reply who is taking on the challenge and then post again ...

From what I can tell, the missions are assigned based on rank, so the opposite would actually be true. The faster you advance in rank, the quicker you see the harder missions. Perhaps you are just extremely unlucky. :) On the other hand, you may get rewarded more money for more kills or better medal...

Missile accuracy would be interesting to track, but people would need to remember to write it down after each mission since I do not believe it is stored anywhere.

You would, of course, need to pre-emptively destroy all your wingmen so they do not steal any of your future kills. :)

I think that sounds like a fun idea. Most of my pilots never get past mission 4 or 5 (mortality rate is high early on). It might force me to play more carefully if I only have one go at it. :) If we kept some sort of rankings doing one pilot per week for a few months, it would reveal who can consist...

Whatever the latest version is (4 I think). If you are refering to the medal count, I was going to clarify in my post above but forgot. I just used a hex editor to examine the save file of my current game to find out my current pilot's success rate and medal total, and to get the medal totals in my ...

These discussions about price come up every once and a while. At first I thought they were just lamers trying to whine their way into a discount or some pirated software and they annoyed me. Now I almost enjoy the threads (not that I want to see more popping up in the forums) because of all the post...

I think his point was that since it (your base, presumably - talking about this in character, rather than as a game) knows if you completed the objective when the mission is over it obviously has some way of detecting success or failure. This information could be transmitted to your ship immediately...
