    yeah it's just a primitive polygon, the barbed wire makes it feel cool.

    But it's a wall. Looking cool isn't top priority when your tanks come out of a refurbished barn.

    It's like two in the morning and I just played Wasteland 2 for like ten(?) fucking hours so you'll have to excuse me for a moment, but Jesus fucking Christ in Heaven how many times do I have to say it? sv_pure doesn't work, it doesn't work the straight-up whitelist files, I spent a day fucking with the EPIC server trying to get it to work, if y'all motherfuckers think it's so damn easy to get pure to work, then I would LOVE for you to prove me wrong and show me how it's done so I can get it on all the servers.

    As far as I can tell, it requires VPK's to work as of Source 2013 and the build process is enough of a hackjob for me to absolutely not want to go through the piss and shit that is automating packaging VPKs.

    So again, it's like 2 in the morning and I'm tired as fuck so you'll have to excuse me for being a bit of an asshole (I'm also sleep deprived too) but it's not just some "herpderp sv_pure 1 harpdarp" shit happening. If it was that simple, I'd've been railing on every server owner to have it enabled.

    EDIT: And before you start giving me the "Well, did you try X" or "I bet you didn't try Y" or "Did you remember to whitelist Z", fuck off already. I tried whitelisting THE ENTIRE FUCKING EMPIRES DIRECTORY and running god damn Crossroads. It didn't work, still wouldn't let me connect to the server.

    EDIT: Added more posts to angerly quote

    EDIT: I'm so tired, all I can hear is the first verse from "Come Together" playing infinitely in my mind.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    Can we stop pestering Candles about pure and instead pester him about automagically coming up with a fix to the port's cannon recoil bug?

    I pester Candles whenever there is a bug and whenever friendly engineers don't drop walls. He fixes the problem in both cases.

    Cyberkiller actually made this mod himself like 5 years ago. Until I went stock I used it. It's probably identical to the one in the post. I'm not sure if he ever posted it on these forums though.

    EDIT: I found his post on the EPIC forums. May 2009. It's that long ago that it was hosted on geocities, though it did have a dropbox mirror.

    Can we bug him about the other issue ?
    The one where you drop connection to the server then when you reconnect you don't have the top part of the screen.

    Changing resolution also removes the bar. Is that also fixed?

    Wtf is wrong with the devs?
    They have taken away almost everything people could complain about. We have a problem and within a few weeks i's fixed.
    We are down to complaining about too many NEW weapons, engines, and armors.
    Fuck even wheel placement on NF com is being worked on so people can't get stuck on there own turrets(lol).


    You guys are amazing.

    SO what was creating the bug?

    This is almost as fun of a read as reading game reviewer shills
    Fixing the cv is great, but get out of the otherworld

    Though I'm not sure how everyone feels about this I've gone ahead and removed the barbed wire from the models. I've altered the models themselves rather than doing just a material tweak. I figured there's no reason to have all those extra poly's for no reason.

    Edit: I've moved the thread to the implemented section.
