WoW Hackers and Gold Farmers Shit Canned!

 

World of Warcraft Accounts Closed

- Blizzard on 12/21/05

 

In keeping with Blizzard's aggressive stance against cheating in World of Warcraft, we have permanently closed more than 18,000 accounts over the past three months for participating in activities that violate the game's Terms of Use.
A majority of these accounts were found to be using third-party programs to farm gold and items. Such actions can severely impact the economy of a realm and the overall game enjoyment for all players.

We will continue to actively monitor all World of Warcraft realms in order to protect the service and its players from the negative effects of cheating. Please note that selling World of Warcraft content, such as gold, items, and characters, can result in the permanent removal of the involved accounts from World of Warcraft.

A portion of the account closures announced today came as the result of tips reported to our GMs in game or emailed to hacks@blizzard.com by legitimate World of Warcraft players. If you suspect that a World of Warcraft character is using an illegal third-party program to farm gold or items, or is otherwise violating our Terms of Use, please report the suspected infraction via one of the means listed above. All reports will be investigated, and those that prove false will not result in corrective action.

Thank you for your continued support, and good luck with your adventures in Azeroth!

That will be all, carry on.

News Update

 

After waiting almost 2 hours to get this, I now have it for you to download.

Your welcome and enjoy.

 

Patch 1.8.3 - 1.8.4

This is a 35.6MB incremental patch only.

 

Well, its another patch. Sorry, but its going to take me longer to acquire patch downloads due to the fact that I have had to let my founders club account laps due to a lack of funds. For those of you that have become accustomed to relying on =SS1= for prompt downloads, I apologize, but none of this is free.

 

Just a reminder, we do have a PayPal donation link on our site. Left menu on the bottom. I do not charge clan dues in order to run the site either, but donations are always gladly accepted.

 

That will be all, carry on.

I am happy to announce that =SS1= has expanded and added a new division, City of Heroes. The new division will be lead by newly appointed clan officer =SS1=Nikon. Welcome to the big kids club Nikon! We hope that this new addition to the =SS1= family will grow and prosper. I want to send out a warm welcome to all the new members and to say that we hope you feel at home!

 

Look for new CoH content on our site in the coming weeks, we will be adding downloads, screen shots, wall papers and more!

 

I would also like to add that we are actively recruiting for CoH as well. A link to the CoH application can be found in the left hand menu.

 

That will be all, carry on.

A WORD TO THE WISE!

 

If you happen to be one of the individuals that was playing on our Desert Combat Final server recently and were banned, and thought you'd come here to find out why, I got one thing to say,

YOU BROUGHT IT UPON YOURSELF!!

 

I own and operate all of =SS1='s services. I own the game server, web server, and Team Speak server. Thus I answere to NO ONE! When I decide to put up a server for my clan members to play on, I leave it open to the public simply as a courtesy. After I banned a couple people for being incredible assholes and smarming off to me, I had a few other people leave as a sign of protest because I kicked their buddy, and say as they left "have fun playing on an empty server".

 

Let me clue you up on something, if that's the only kind of people that are going to frequent my server I don't want any of you motherfucker's to play here! I put the server up so that my clan mates and myself can play something other than World of WarCraft on occasion. I do not , hell, I will not spend that time I do decide to play DC, playing with a bunch of mouthy fucking pricks!

 

I could care less if my server isn't  1337 and is full 24/7, as long as its there for my clan members and close friends then that's good enough for me. So if you think I'm in the wrong after writing this, you have only of course of action to follow. GO SUCK ON YOUR MOMMA'S TITTY CUZ I DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK! If you think I'm being smarmy and mouthy with this post, I wrote it this way because I figured its all you assholes would understand.

 

If you read this, and do happen to make it off the ban list someday and you come back to play on my server, you should really behave yourself, or your gone again!

 

P.S. No need to register in our forums and flame us either, I'll just delete your account and ban any form of identification you use to create that account!

 

That will be all, carry on.

Will these heroes find friends or foes? What dangers and rewards lie in wait beyond the Dark Portal? And what will they do when they discover that the demons they thought vanquished have returned to renew their terrible Burning Crusade?

Live Patch Notes Disclaimer: While we make every effort to include all upcoming changes in our patch notes, please be aware that occasionally some changes are unintentionally omitted.

Patch 1.8 Changes

Disturbance at the Great Trees

    Something is amiss in the Emerald Dream. Immense dragons with the shimmering emerald scales of the Green Dragonflight have been sighted guarding the portals at the Great Trees... but these once-noble creatures crawl with a new, strange menace, not the peace for which Ysera is known. Bring many allies should you dare to confront them; their powers are formidable and they will not hesitate to crush any who draw near.

The Stirring of the Silithid

    The arid sands of Silithus are shifting. Something is awakening beyond the wall to the south... Aid the Druids of the Cenarion Circle as they delve into the mysteries of the desert. Seek answers behind the Twilight Hammer's presence. Discover more about the alien creatures known as the Silithid as you explore their hives. Many new endeavors await the high-level adventurer!

Hallow's End

    When the decorations of Hallow's End light up Azeroth's cities, you know there's mischief afoot! Seek special vendors in Orgrimmar or Ironforge and get your hands on treats! Aid a sick orphan in a little trick-or-treating! Deathcaller Yanka, attending the Forsaken's Wickerman Festival, and Sergeant Hartman of Southshore are seeking your aid in keeping the enemy out of their holiday affairs -- are you up to the challenge?

General

  • Instant Attacks

      The mechanics of most instant melee attacks have been modified to improve item balance. Previously, instant melee attacks did damage based on the damage range of the weapon, plus a bonus for the player's attack power. This bonus was then multiplied by the speed of the weapon. As a result, slow weapons did more damage than was intended, and fast weapons were considered inferior by most players. We have changed the way the attack power bonus is calculated for instant attacks. This change does NOT affect attack power calculations for normal melee attacks. Instead of multiplying by the speed of the weapon, the attack power bonus is now multiplied by a fixed number pulled from the following table:
       

      • Two-handed weapons: 3.3

      • Daggers: 1.7

      • All other one-handed weapons: 2.4

      As a direct result of this, many weapons have shifted position in their relative power. In particular, many Epic (purple) quality items are now more powerful than slower Superior (blue) weapons.
      This change was not made to reduce the power of instant attacks, but to correct the relative imbalance of weapon itemization. At a given level requirement, epic quality weapons should always be more powerful than superior quality weapons.
      Please also note that all normal weapon swings will be completely unaffected by this change. The following abilities are affected by the design change: Sinister Strike, Ambush, Backstab, Whirlwind, Mortal Strike, and Overpower.
       

  • The cost per point of durability to repair plate, chain, and leather items has been reduced to be equal to the cost of repairing cloth items of the same quality.

  • You can now repurchase up to 12 items that you have sold to a vendor. There is now a buyback tab on all merchants that you can select to repurchase the last 12 items you sold since you last logged in. When your character leaves the game, this list of items will be cleared, so if you have accidentally sold something, don�t wait to buy it back. Buy it back immediately.

  • Perception (Human Racial) is now usable while stealthed.

  • There is now a spell effect when you increase your reputation to a new level.

  • The loading screen upon login now displays gameplay tips.

  • Channeled spells that are cancelled by movement can no longer be cast while moving.

  • Fixed bug where the debuff Tetanus was reducing stamina by one more than it should.

  • Pets no longer break off attacks when their target is affected by Warlock Fear.

  • The "Knockout" mechanic has been renamed "Disorient" and all tooltips that referenced this mechanic should be updated.

PvP

  • Honor System

    • The percentage of players that may reach ranks 6 through 14 has been increased.

    • Lower-level players should advance in the Honor System more quickly than they had previously (although this change does not affect the highest ranks they can achieve).

  • Battlegrounds

    • Each Battleground has an individual turn-in quest associated with its related victory/loss condition. Upon completion of a Battleground, the winning side will be awarded three Marks of Honor while the losing side will be awarded one Mark of Honor. Three Marks of Honor may be turned in to the associated questgiver for Honor Points and faction increase. Should players complete this turn-in quest, they will find that the bonus Honor Points for completion are twice that of normal turn-in conditions (individual).

    • Players of levels 10 - 19 will now be able to participate in the battle for Warsong Gulch.

    • Alterac Valley has received an overhaul:

      • In order to keep teams in Alterac Valley more numerically balanced, players will now enter Alterac Valley on a one-for-one basis (i.e. if there are 30 players in the battleground for each side with 10 players in the Alliance queue and 2 players in the Horde queue, only two players from each team will be added, bringing the total to 32 per side).

      • The minimum number of players required to start a battle in Alterac Valley has been lowered to 20 (the maximum is still 40).

      • Points for completing the map and winning have been slightly decreased.

      • Graveyards and graveyard capture points are now at different locations. This was done to correct the negative behavior and tactics associated with graveyard captures and the subsequent player swarming factor. Graveyards should be much more meaningful now to both defense and offense.

      • Several terrain changes were made to fix some geometry exploits as well as to adjust for the new graveyard mechanic.

      • Iceblood Graveyard has been fortified.

      • The Frostwolf Relief Hut now has appropriate guards.

      • A great avalanche has closed off both the eastern and western segments of Alterac Valley. This has displaced the Syndicate, the Woodpaw Gnolls, and many of the Winterax Trolls.

      • Due to the avalanche, Korrak the Bloodrager and a small band of surviving Trolls have made the Snowfall Graveyard their new home. Players will find that Snowfall is now under Korrak's control and they must defeat Korrak and his Troll guards if they wish to take Snowfall.

      • The quests Korrak the Bloodrager (Alliance), Korrak the Everliving (Alliance), The Legend of Korrak (Horde), and The Return of Korrak (Horde) have been removed from the game. The rewards for the initial quest involving Korrak have been moved and can be acquired by completing the quest associated with winning a match in Alterac Valley. We realize that some players may have had the Korrak quest and never completed it. These players may have already completed the quest for killing the General and thus might not be able to benefit from the rewards from the previous quest line. We have opted to add an extra quest step at the end of the General kill quests to reward players that fall under such conditions.

      • A new item has been added as one of the reward choices for the quests Hero of the Stormpike and Hero of the Frostwolf.

      • NPC difficulty has been scaled down. All NPCs have had their power reduced by 15-30%.

      • There is now a portcullis at the end of each of the entrance tunnels inside Alterac Valley. They will rise two minutes into the battle.

  • The PvP Tier2 Alliance and Horde Cloth armor sets have new updated textures.

Druids

  • Due to significant talent changes, talent points for Druids have been refunded and can be respent. Training costs for all talent spell/ability replacements have been significantly reduced.

  • Hurricane - No longer a talent. Now available to all Druids at level 40. Damage and Mana cost increased on all ranks. Spell is now cast on a targeted area up to 30 yards away and affected by Nature�s Reach. Multiple Druids casting Hurricane will no longer stack the slowdown effect. Radius of effect decreased slightly.

  • Remove Curse - Updated tooltip to reflect that it's usable on friendly targets only.

  • Shapeshifting - Fixed a bug where the Chilled effect caused by Ice Armor/Frost Armor was not removed properly when shapeshifting.

  • Swipe - Self cooldown removed.

  • Tranquility - Cooldown reduced to 5 minutes. Mana cost reduced by 25%.

  • Judgement of Light and Judgement of Wisdom will now benefit players that are immune to Holy effects (e.g. Divine Shield).

Priests

  • Psychic Scream - Updated tooltip to reflect that damage caused to the feared target may break the effect. Included radius in tooltip.

  • Devouring Plague (Undead) - Will now properly consume the Inner Focus effect when cast.

  • Shadowguard (Troll) - Tooltip updated to reflect actual functionality.

  • Elune's Grace (Night Elf) - New icon.

Rogues

  • Parry - Minimum level to train this ability has been lowered to 12.

  • Blade Flurry - This ability will now trigger correctly off of special attacks such as Sinister Strike and Kick.

  • Corruption - Duration reduced and damage per tick increased. Total damage over duration approximately identical.

  • Curse of Agony - Duration reduced to 24 seconds and damage per tick increased. Total damage over duration approximately identical.

  • Conflagrate - Conflagrate will now correctly remove Immolate rank 4 from its victim when cast.

  • Bane - Now reduces casting time of the Soul Fire and Hellfire spells in addition to Immolate and Shadow Bolt.

  • Intensity - Now reduces chance to be interrupted during cast time of Rain of Fire, Hellfire and Soul Fire spells.

  • Pyroclasm - Now gives a chance to stun when Rain of Fire, Hellfire, and Soul Fire spells damage the target.

  • Soul Link - Percentage of damage split with pet has been reduced.

  • Ruin - Critical damage bonus reduced.

  • Summon Felhunter - Has a new, unique sound effect.

  • Improved Drain Mana - Damage caused by this talent will now cause 150% damage instead of 200% damage, which is now consistent with other damage spells.

  • The Drape of Benediction had the statistics and effects of a Superior quality item, but was an Epic item. The item has been improved to have the proper Epic stats.

  • The effect of the Admiral's Hat has been changed. You can now click the Admiral's Hat to provide yourself with an aura that gives you and your nearby party members a stamina increase.

Back to Basics, back to DC

 

 

Well, I'm making a decision,

 

NO MORE BF2 at =SS1=

 

After playing the incredibly huge pile of shit again, and having it crash to desktop on me in the first 2 minutes, I have decided that I'm done with BF2. We do not have enough active members playing BF2 to support having it either. Everyone here is either playing DC, WoW, or DOD:S, I can no longer see a reason to support a game that has totally let the community down.

 

Clan members need to contact me about this ASAP, as this will obviously affect the future of the clan.

 

=SS1= will look very hard at Desert Conflict when it is released to see if its going to be a good enough mod to overcome the massive shortcomings of the BF2 base game. If it does not do this, I believe =SS1='s involvement with the Battlefield franchise has meet its end. We will continue to host a DC/DCF server for BF1942, its even possible that I may load up a BFV server for the hell of it on occasion. But after the absolute lack luster performance of a woefully inadequate and far to late patch I feel its time we moved on.

 

BF2 is broken, and I don't want to wait for EA to let DICE fix it. EA is far more concerned with releasing an expansion pack for this turd than they are fixing it. They have made it very difficult foe the modding and mapping community to create and release and usable content, and I don't see that they are going to make it any easier on them anytime soon.

 

I may continue to host a BF2 server for the time being, but it will not be managed the same way it has been in the past. I am not going to put the time and effort into it that I had been, I will be focusing more on other games.

 

 For starters, Desert Combat will again be,  our primary Battlefield Division at =SS1= until the release of Desert Conflict. If Desert Conflict turns out to be a worth while mod,  then the clan will move over to it. If Desert Conflict does not live up to our expectations, DC/DCF will remain the as it is until we close our doors.

 

I am very pleased with the way Day of Defeat : Source has turned out and will be putting more time and effort into that server. If you do not have this game yet and you like fps'ers then I highly recommend you get it, it simply kicks as. At least the people at Valve® to give a shit about their customer and fan base and genuinely want to see high quality content released. In order to maintain the image they have so richly earned and deserve for creating the best fps'ers of all time in Half-Life and Half-Life 2. DoD:S is yet another example from them of what hard work and zero compromise on quality will get you.

EA/DICE SHOULD TAKE A FEW LESSONS FROM THEM

 

I am also very much looking forward to F.E.A.R. and its multiplayer aspects. They are offering dedicated server software to the public and I will be giving it a try when the full retail game is released.

 

DAMN THE MAN, SAVE THE EMPIRE!

That will be all, carry on.

        configured for multiplayer only.
 
 - Server Favorites / History
 
        There is a new tab in the MULTIPLAYER menu that holds a list of
        the last 20 internet servers you have connected to, plus a list
        of servers you have selected as favorites.
 
        * Added a button to the other multiplayer tabs that adds the
          currently highlighted server to your favorites list.
        * Added buttons in the in-game server info menu (press TAB to
          access) that will add or remove the server you are currently
          playing on to / from your favorites list.
 
 - Account Login Welcome Screen
 
        After you login to an online account, a message appears that
        contains BF2 news and information which updates periodically.
 
 - Stat Compare
 
        By clicking the COMPARE button in BFHQ, you can search for another
        players name and load their current stats into BFHQ.  Using the
        arrow buttons next to the name in the top-left corner of the menu,
        you can toggle between your stats and their stats.
 
        You can also load a player's stats by double-clicking on their
        name in any leaderboard.
 
 - Nickname Prefix
 
        You can add a 6-character prefix (such as a clan tag) to your
        account nickname which will be displayed in-game next to your
        nametag in the score menu, in game messages, and above your player
        in the game world.
 
        * This prefix does not change your account name or statistic
        information (e.g. the prefix does not appear next to your name
        on the leaderboards).
        * You can change this prefix at any time at the account login
        menu.
 
 - Server Reserved Slots
 
        You can define a list of player nicknames that will act as a
        "reservation list" for your server.
 
        * The list is located in mods\bf2\settings\ReservedSlots.con
        * You can add player names to the list by editing the file and
          adding the following text for each player :
 
                reservedSlots.addNick <account name>
 
          where <account name> is the player's registered account name,
          not including a nickname prefix (see above).
        * You can define the number of slots to set aside for reserved
          players in the dedicated server launcher, or with the setting
          sv.numReservedSlots <number> in your serverSettings.con file.
        * The number of players on the list and the number of reserved
          slots does not necessarily have to be the same.
 
 - Mod Support
 
        There are several new changes that improve support for mods.
 
        * When connecting to a server that is running a mod that you have
          installed but not activated, it will be automatically activated
          and you will load into the server.
        * Added a filter on the server browser for servers running the
          currently activated mod.
        * Fixed dedicated server launcher to properly handle launching mods.
        * Improved support for mods sharing archives with bf2
 
 - Improvements to in-game HUD / Map
 
        * The viewable area of the spawn menu / commander map is now scaled
          based on the out-of-bounds area so that only the playable area
          takes up the majority of viewable map space.
        * The names of CPs are now displayed on the spawn menu / commander
          map and minimap
        * The minimap zoom level now changes dynamically depending on the
          type of vehicle you are in.  If you zoom in or out manually, that
          zoom level is remembered for that vehicle type next time you use
          it.
        * The names of players in your vehicle are displayed in the HUD
          when someone enters the vehicle or switches positions.
        * There is a new element in vehicle HUDs that displays the reload
          time for countermeasures (smoke and flares).
        * Flags for each team are now displayed below their ticket count
          on the minimap to make it easier to tell what team you are assigned to.

   eligible for a new promotion, unlock, badge, award, or ribbon, it will
   be awarded the next time you receive points on a ranked server.

Desert Combat Final

 

 

A return to basics, I have decided after feeling somewhat nostalgic, to put our DCF server back online. Had an old friend that used to play DC with us stop by and inquire about our status as a DC clan, and I figured what the hell. The BF2 server is still up and running, no need to worry about that. It just has its older brother running along side him on the same box. This server is also running as a Punks Busted, so here is the server info, and we'll see you on the Battlefield!

BF2 1.03 Patch Update Progress

In this space about a month ago, EA and DICE listed many of the feature tweaks and updates that are pending for the 1.03 Update. In order to address the key issues as quickly as possible, we set an aggressive release date for the end of August. Unfortunately, as we approach the end of this month, it has become apparent that we will not meet this goal, and we wanted to keep you abreast of our progress. We are committed to making the 1.03 Update as comprehensive as possible, so while it is important to us to keep the release date, it is more important that we take the time to do this right. We will avoid committing to another date, but know that our goal is to get 1.03 out to you as soon as we’re certain it will deliver what we know you’re all hoping for. Keep fighting soldiers, the 1.03 Update is coming!

 

Imagine that, we don't get a patch, heaven forbid they release a working game, oh no, lets keep it a BETA for an undetermined amount of time.

 

These people should be politicians.......

That will be all, carry on.

=SS1=Gen.Foxxxtracker 08/19/05 13:14 hours

 

 

=SS1= now has Active BF2 server

 

 

=SS1= has rejoined the BF2 community.

 Due to recent bandwidth tests, and the good results which I have gotten from them, we once again have a BF2 server up and running.

 

=SS1=

new 207.254.23.17 new

 

 

I would really appreciate some feedback from the public on what they would like to see on this server. To give your opinions please register in our forums and post in the public BF2 forum. Please keep your comments focused on the following options:

  • Which maps you want to see in the rotation.

  • How many rounds.

  • Round time limit.

  • Ticket count: 100%, 150% or 200%.

  • What size maps: 16 (small), 32 (medium) or 64 (large) player.

  • Maximum number of players: 16, 24, 32, 48, or 64.

I would also like to announce that as soon as Desert Conflict is released we will be a mirror for the client and the server. We will also be changing our present BF2 server over to a Desert Conflict server at that time as well.

 

That will be all, carry on.

=SS1=Gen.Foxxxtracker 08/18/05 02:26 hours

 

 

Desert Conflict

 

Well, I may not be all that happy with BF2 as a whole, but seeing this sure gets me feeling good about Battlefield again.

 

Desert Conflict, the Desert Combat equivalent mod for BF2, is something I have been watching since before the release of BF2 and and very please to see some of the new things coming from this team of very skilled Devs. I put together a little photo gallery of all the images I have thus far and here it is for everyone to take a peak at.

 

Desert Conflict Photo Gallery

 

Many of the original fight physics that we all loved are slated to be put into this new mod, as well as the original more simplified type of game play. Such as the removal of commander mode, the re-implementation of stationary medic stations, and repair/re-arm points. We also get good old fashioned artillery back again.

 

Please take the time if you have it and check them out. Do what you can to show your support to this development team by stopping by their website and registering. I'm sure it would mean a great deal to them to receive the support they truly deserve.

 

Desert Conflict

That will be all, carry on.

New Web Server

 

I am happy to announce that I have successfully transferred the website over to a new machine. This new machine is a 2.6 GHz Celeron on a socket 478 die platform. The new server also has 1GB of PC 2700 DDR RAM. This machine is one of our old BF2 servers, (The Black Box). I am also happy to report that this puppy hallz ballz and is allot nicer to work with than the old PII 450MHz machine that we were running. Everyone should notice a decrease in load times, and I'm hoping an increase in download speeds as well.

 

At any rate just wanted to let everyone know what was going on.

That will be all, carry on.

Massive Overhaul

 

Due to a total lack of use and the severe need to upgrade many parts of the site. I have decided to take down the forums and VWar in order to perform some much needed maintenance. These changes are primarily in regards to the version of php, MySQL, phpBB forums and VWar that are currently in use.

 

For starters the site will be moved to a new machine. In the mean time, the site will remain as it is.  Once the site is back up personnel will need to re-register in the forums.

 

We will be starting over from scratch! See you soon.

 

That will be all, carry on.

Thank You for your donation

"=SS1=Spectre"

 

=SS1= would like to thank =SS1=Spectre for his generous donation to the clan through PayPal.  It is through the continued support of persons such as yourself that make this clan and its services a reality.

 

Thanx, you ROXXX!

Battlefield 2 MOD Editor (Open Beta)

[DOWNLOAD NOW - 49.3MB]

Battlefield 2 Editor Open Beta Release!
EA and DICE are pleased to announce that today, after two weeks of Closed Beta testing, we are releasing the first public version of the Battlefield 2 editor! Over the last couple of days you've probably seen some of the outstanding work that the Closed Beta teams have created using the tools, and now we're giving everyone else the chance to join the fun. Keep in mind that we are considering this release "Beta" software, so it’s still a little rough around the edges, though we’ve worked out many of the kinks. Also, though most core functionality is editable as of this release, there are several more advanced areas of the tools that are still being worked on. One example of of a tool to be delivered in a future update is the Single Player Editor.

Also worth noting is that the current Battlefield 2 Dedicated Server files are not yet compatible with Mods. DICE is already working on a fix for the Dedicated Server files that will be included with the 1.03 patch. In the meantime, this will not prevent Mods from being tested over the Internet entirely. For testing purposes, Mod Teams can still create a non-dedicated server game through the regular in-game multiplayer interface that will allow anyone to connect to your game, either locally or over the net, provided that the rest of the team connects by IP .

In the days ahead we will be announcing the Official Battlefield 2 Mods home page, which I will be very proud to make my "home". Our intent for this page is to make it "the" place for mod teams and mappers and community members to gather and exchange help, problem reports and feature requests regarding all facets of BF2 Editing. The site will also host the BF2 Editor manual, my editing tutorials, and a repository for community editing guides. We are also excited to be able to offer a variety of forums for new or established modders, mod team showcases and support. The site will also stand as a centralized source for downloading mods and maps as they are presented to the community. I'll be providing more information on this as we get closer to launch. For now, I invite everyone to join in the temporary forums we started for closed-beta testing. These will be maintained until the official site is up. There are a lot of great guys there that would be happy to share their experiences with you and get you going. To join, just go to forums and register.

Whether you’re new to the Battlefield experience or a seasoned modder, I invite everyone to download and try out the tools and I hope the accompanying documentation proves helpful for any and all. Happy Modding!

100 Mbps My Ass!!

 

Well beings that my new ISP is a bunch of lying assholes, we won't be getting the 100 Mbps as they had advertised. Until I can find another service provider (one that isn't a lying sack of shit) we'll have to cut back on a few things. For starters we will be falling back to one BF2 server.

 

The Black Box will be the only BF2 server that we will have up. Sorry for the inconvenience.

That will be all, carry on.

100 Mbps, ohhhhhh we are so pampered!!!!

 

Here's the heads up for everyone. We will be switching ISP's tomorrow morning at approx 09:00 hours PST. I hope for this to not take to long, and that it takes no longer than an hour. We will have new IP's for all the servers, those being Team Speak, and both BF2 servers. For those of you out of the loop on what happened and why we are changing, my current ISP HomeNet Northwest decided to throttle us to 10 Mbps  and forgot to tell anyone that they were going to do that, shame shame shame...

 

Well, because of all things, some junk mail, I found a new service provider that will give us back our 100 Mbps that we used to have. I am also hoping that we will have way fewer problems with our connection. So boys and girls sit back and enjoy it.

 

Here is a list of the new IP's for everyone.

 

Team Speak

new 207.254.23.16 new

or

(www.skullsquadren1.com)

 

 

Silver Box Ops

new 207.254.23.17 new

 

 

Black Box Ops

new 207.254.23.18 new

 

That will be all, carry on.

=SS1=Gen.Foxxxtracker 7/24/05 17:52 hours

 

 

LET THERE BE ROCK!

 

In celebration of =SS1= moving back to a 100Mbps connection I have decided to add some music back to our little website. As you may have noticed on the title page there is an audio control panel (for those of you that use IE). Once you make it into the main page of the site, if you hover over the =SKULL SQUADREN 1= at the top of the page you will see that its a link to a play list. This play list will open in your computers default mp3 playback device. These are tunes that I like and I hope that you do to.

Oh and AirCav I put a little track in the play list I think you'll recognize, man you so very rock!!

 

Enjoy!!!

That will be all, carry on.

A Message from EA/DICE about Battlefield 2™

Hi everyone. Thanks to all of you, Battlefield 2 has seen great success around the world.

Since its launch, we've tried to give Battlefield 2 all the support it deserves by releasing patches with the fixes and improvements you've asked for. Unfortunately, we haven't lived up to the standards we've set for ourselves. So all of us at EA and DICE are working extra hard to make sure that your Battlefield 2 experience improves dramatically in the coming weeks.

Towards the end of August, we will be releasing a new patch called 1.03. This patch is currently underway and will undergo thorough testing to avoid the problems that have occurred in the past. To make sure you're up to date until then; make sure you have installed the latest upcoming 1.02 update, which you can download here.

Here are just a few of the fixes you can expect to see in the 1.03 patch:

  • Server and Client performance improvements.

  • Improved Server Browser – added Favorites and History Lists.

  • Point-farming prevention - game will stop Support/Medic/Engineer point farming exploits.

  • Squads - locked squad leader will get a message if someone wants to join.

  • Many HUD improvements - see the names of others in your vehicle, zoom level changing depending on vehicle, map zoom depending on map setup (16, 32 or 64 player map) etc.

  • Teamkilling changes – the logic of how teamkills are tracked will be changed.

  • Gameplay tweaks - the way transport helicopters work will be tweaked.

  • Additional scoring changes - players who destroy an enemy commander's assets will be given points.

There are over 140 fixes and improvements in the 1.03 patch and we're looking forward to everyone moving to 1.03 to get the best Battlefield 2 experience on a level, cheat-free playing field.

We also know that there is still an issue with availability of slots on Ranked Servers. We're all delighted that this new feature has been so popular, but we know that many of you are finding it hard to get onto a ranked server, especially at peak times. We are taking big steps and investing heavily to ensure that everyone can experience this side of Battlefield 2. New official servers have gone up in Europe and the U.S. this week and you will see many more going up in the coming weeks. Our vision is to make sure you never have to wait to get onto a ranked server.

Thanks for being such great fans of Battlefield 2. We've been listening to you and we're determined to make Battlefield 2 the best online shooter experience out there. We hope you like the changes that are coming.

- The Battlefield 2 Team

 

That will be all, carry on.

Battlefield 2 Patch v1.02

 

click on image to download patch

 

 

NOTE: Upon installing v1.02 you will see references to v1.01. You are not installing v1.01 but are installing v1.02 (referenced in the game browser as 2484)

 

Well, it seems while I was gone over the weekend the good people at EA Games decided to release a patch for BF2. Sorry I wasn't here to help take care of things but I'm home now and I believe I got things worked out.

 

The =SS1= server has been upgraded to the new version and we can all play on it again.

 

 I have the patch here for those that haven't gotten it yet or just if you need it in the future. I'm sure that it will be replaced by another patch sometime in the near future anyway but none the less here it is.

 

Enjoy the patch everyone, I hope this one works better that the first piece of shit they released. Lets keep our fingers crossed then!

That will be all, carry on.

World of WarCraft Patch v1.6.0 Released!!

 

click on image to download patch

 

 

Below are the official patch notes for the 1.6.0 version of the Public Test Realms. Please be aware that the PTR patch notes are not the final patch notes, and are subject to change/additions before the patch goes live.

 

***************************************************

 

Blackwing Lair Released!

Nefarian's sanctum, Blackwing Lair, can be found at the very height of Blackrock Spire. It is there in the dark recesses of the mountain's peak that Nefarian has begun to unfold the final stages of his plan to destroy Ragnaros once and for all and lead his army to undisputed supremacy over all the races of Azeroth. Blackwing Lair is a max-level, 40-player raid dungeon, with many new encounters and tempting rewards awaiting the intrepid adventurer that dares enter its halls. (Blackwing Lair will not be accessible during the public test.)

Darkmoon Faire!

A gathering of the exotic from around the world and beyond, Silas Darkmoon has brought together the Darkmoon Faire as a celebration of the wondrous and mysterious found in Azeroth. While the Faire spends most of their time in parts unknown, they do stop from time to time in Mulgore and Elwynn forest. When the faire is on its way barkers will stop by Ogrimmar and Ironforge to announce its arrival.

Battlemasters!

There is a new way to enter the battleground queues. Battlemasters! Located in some of the cities, right-clicking on a battlemaster will allow your character to enter a battleground queue just like you normally would if you touched that battleground’s entrance portal. The functionality is exactly the same, so when it’s your character’s time to enter the chosen battleground, you will be teleported directly in. Glordrum Steelbeard stands in the Hall of Arms in Ironforge, serving as the Alliance battlemaster for Alterac Valley. Aethalas of the Silverwing Sentinels stands ready in Darnassus, next to the warrior trainers, to send Alliance characters into Warsong Gulch. And in the Hall of the Brave, located in Orgrimmar’s Valley of Honor, Brakgul Deathbringer serves as the Horde’s battlemaster for Warsong Gulch, while Kartra Bloodsnarl will send you to bring glory to the Horde in Alterac Valley. Guards in their respective cities can give you directions on how to find them.

Hey EA Games , MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!

 

Well it turns out that EA Games has pulled off yet another brilliant and spectacular display of marketing intelligence! The patch they released for BF2 last week that was supposed to fix BF2 (because it was broke BIG TIME when they released it) was more broke than the original game.

 

Due to memory leaks found in the client side patch and the updated server (which were pointed out to them by the community) EA has recalled the patch and is asking everyone to (here it comes) REINSTALL THE GAME!! LMAO Yes that's right folks, you heard me correctly, you need to completely uninstall and then reinstall your game to the original v1.0 and do not install any patch at this time. EA is working (or so they say) on a new patch to fix the fix so to speak.

 

=SS1= will be rolling its servers back as well (which is an incredible PAIN IN MY ASS) so that people will be able to play on the original v1.0. I would say sorry for the inconvenience BUT ITS NOT MY FAULT. All I have to say at this point is .....

 

GGz EA w00t!

That will be all, carry on.

=SS1=Gen.Foxxxtracker 7/11/05 08:33 hours

 

 

=SS1= now has FULL BF2 Server

 

 

As of 10:00 hours Wednesday, June 22, 2005=SS1= has been hosting a full retail version server for BF2. This server is set to 45 minute rounds, and ticket count is set to 100%.

 

Full Server - 64.146.189.67:16567

 

Have fun Fragg'n'!

 

We also have a couple new downloads. We will be a mirror for the full dedicated server as well as PBWEB for BF2. Please check our downloads section for these and other downloads.

That will be all, carry on.

The Black List

 

Many of you may or may not know that EA Games and GameSpy have decided to start "Black Listing" Battlefield 2 servers that remove the time limit and unlock the weapons. They have been removing these servers from the Master Server list in your "in game server browser", without notifying the server admins. I personally find this to be absolutely grabasstic of them. Much of this issue stems from EA's desire to try and force everyone to play on ranked servers (that only they possess) so that they can profit from server rentals to clans, while effectively destroying the private server hosting market.

 

Their hope is that people will be so caught up in the idea of needing rank to unlock weapons that the server market will gravitate towards them so they can make even more money. Try 8 dollars per slot per month for an EA ranked server. That's 256 dollars a month to EA from each clan that wants a 32 slot server. That's just a game server, that doesn't include web hosting, team speak/ventrilo (if clans have more than one game they play which would negate their dumbass little VoIP) or any other services.

 

I live in an area that has fiber optic internet and I host the services for my clan for free. I will not, under any circumstances pay EA Games for one of their servers. I also think its absolutely stupid that I need to play on a ranked server, to gain rank and unlock weapons, so that I can have the chance (not even a guarantee) to use those locked weapons on a server that I host. Besides, isn't there already a game that people have to train to use certain locked weapons? Oh that's right, its called America's Army, AND ITS FUCKING FREE! If I wanted to play America's Army I would download it and installed it.

 

The fact of the matter is, EA is being a money grubbing asshat about the server thing and wants to punish its potential customers for playing the game to its full potential. Is this right in my humble opinion? NO. That being said I would like the communities support. If you feel that you have been "Black Listed" and want to be added to a list of servers that have removed the time limit and unlocked the weapons please do the following:

 

  1. Register in our forums and find the thread in the BF2 Forums entitled "The Black List" (its a sticky)

  2. Post your servers name, IP address and clan server graphic (if you have one, the 4:1 graphic).

Things I will be doing myself.

  1. Openly and publicly boycott ranked servers!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Let them know we want the whole game we will be or have already paid for!

  3. Support the modding community, all we need is the game engine, we can do the rest!

We, as a community need to stick together to let EA know that they need to listen to their customers.

 

That will be all, carry on.

Trojan Alert

I have received reports that the new =SS1=1/9AirCav DCF Map Pack has been popping up as a Trojan Horse threat.

 

THIS IS A FALSE POSITIVE

 

I have recompiled the installer with a the newest version of "Install Creator Pro" and removed the uninstall option. Since doing this I have not gotten any alerts that say it is a virus or a Trojan. I would like to apologize for any misunderstandings that this has caused and hope that this does not deter people from downloading maps, or any other software from =SS1=.

 

The newest version of the map pack can be acquired from =SS1= in the custom maps section of the website or clicking the link below.

FiberActive

The latest news from FiberActive group is a pole that is being run on the Columbia Basin Herald Online. The pole asks;

 

"Did the PUD Commission do the right thing by deciding not to build out the Zipp in 2005?".

 

Be careful to read and understand the question completely, a "NO" vote is actually a favorable vote for Zipp.

 

Please do me and the rest of the gaming community a favor and stop by the Herald's site ( http://www.columbiabasinherald.com/ ) and vote today, let them know you want the Zipp Fiber Optic Network to stay and be finished! Yes, I know that time and time again the public of Grant County has said WE WANT FIBER, but there is still a group of people that feel that you do not need it. DO know that without Zipp Fiber, what you are looking at right now would not be possible. The downloads, you get from =SS1= , the forums, Team Speak, and the games servers would all just be a nice dream if not for Zipp Fiber. So please don't go down without a fight, let the Grant County PUD Commission know that they have chosen poorly and that they need to continue the build out of the Zipp Fiber Optic Project. Even if your not from around these parts, please take the time to visit the link I posted and vote. If Zipp falls, it will affect you as well.

That will be all, carry on.
