Heres a fix for the SC server - it will restore correct movement to the "They Hunger" maps.  It also allows players to stick to their chosen model, and not be lumbered with the ugly "They Hunger" player models.

uuh, it seems like I have golden uzis and the electric crowbar, is there an explanation for this?

Seems it only was when playing alone.. Also, fighting the Xen Commander in Stadium was really tough, very cool enemy/ally.

And also, the server is clogged with people that I have no idea who they are.

That's only for the atheists. As a catholic I celebrate the birth of our lord Jesus Christ.


I believe in god the father almighty, creator of heaven and earth
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son our lord
Who was conceived by the power of the holy spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.........


.....continues prayer at the horror of the Atheists.....

The circumstances described actually place his birth at some time in early Fall. ;o

On that note, the Old Testament is a really awesome war book once you cut through the metaphor. 8D

Ah no, not another science versus religion spat.

I guess I might as well strike the iron while it's hot.

This is my observation, I'm not trying to offend anyone (except for the part on nihilists and the issue of good and evil).

I'm a Methodist, but I'm pretty open-minded. I take my first name from the found of the movement, John Wesley.

There will always be limits to what religion can explain and the same applies to science.

The problem with religion is that it rarely provides...what do call it? Empirical substantiation, I think.

The problem with science is that it can say how but it can't say why. You can say "why" doesn't matter, but in my opinion, it really.

Obsess too much with either and you  become fanatical and overlook the reason why both institutions exist in the first place: for us to enrich ourselves and bring our kind closer together.

On a similar note, to say something can't happen or does exist because it "can't be proven" is igorant beyond reason.

Religion is criticized because it relies on the absolute belief from its devotees. While there is a lot of truth to this, science, if taken too seriously, can become a religion of its own.

Relying too much on either is unwise.

However, nihilism sucks. No gods, no order, no such thing as good and evil, no right or wrong, nothing has any meaning. ZZZZ boring. If nothing has purposeful meaning, why do nihilists feel their opinion matters? No matter what you say, when you say nothing has meaning, you are still impressing your opinion - which is your perception built from your beliefs and sense of logic. Self-defeating, since logic/order "don't exist."

Oh, and evil is real. You can say that's a preconceived notion or a point of view, but you'll never change my mind.

I'll close on this note:

Whether you're religious or not, this little story might interest to you.
Recent well-substantiated studies have observed that subatomic particles react very differently when under the observation of humans, as opposed to observation by non-organic means.

To say life is trite and being alive makes no difference is a pathetic notion indeed.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND BEST OF WISHES TO YOU ALL

Guys, shut it with religion craps already. You fellows won't get anywhere anyhow anytime so instead of wasting your time why not have a nice drink of Russian vodka or something?  ;)

I'm hoping to play SC 4.0 on HLC main server. :P

Edit: Cool people don't waste time arguing over religions.

I just read something Captain Scarlet said on HIT, and I got somewhat concerned.

Yeah they released it before any mirrors got an email from Sven, as far as I and a few mirrors are concerned they leaked the download and then spammed IRC, then everyone started spamming there sites!!  Last release anyone doing that would have been banned from IRC.  I myself was told when to release and I stuck to it.

Is this true ?

What the fuck?

I was a bit concerned as to why we had SC4 downloadable earlier than everyone else, but spamming IRC?

I did exactly what Editor said, and that was put the link up as soon as it was uploaded. That's it. I didn't even go into #svencoop until the mod was officially released.

That is hardly true. The file was uploaded by my PC then commence an automatic shutdown. I gave Ackart the folder where it would be uploaded and to post it on the files network when it was ready. Toadie gave me the mirror with no clear direction on when to put up the link on my end of things. I assumed the news post was going up right away as Toadie said he was typing it. Then I went to bed to wake up Christmas eve to Sven Coop 4.0 with no knowledge of a problem.

The link was never spammed by us or to my knowledge anyone else. If it was, they were not our people and quite frankly, nobody seems to care but a fist full of people. I haven't been contacted by Sven or Toadie on the subject. Its been downloaded 106 times from our mirror since its release, so hardly the mass leak people are making it out to be.

If the Sven Coop team have a problem with how things went down, I apologize and ask they seek me via email for a formal, written apology.
