Great job on the Beta2 Jim. I'm absolutely loving it and thank you so much for all your hard work on the Mod, I can't stress that enough. You have done a phenomenal job!

Thanks too kind...and thanks for reminding me I wanted to fix up the background of the operations screens, lol.

At one point I did a mockup of a new operations screen but now it looks like I can't do that because as far as I can tell they have hard coded it instead of using the .con files for layout.

Update: here was that rough mockup

That seems unnecessary when every other menu uses the .con files lol but for some reason it doesn't suprise me.

I like that operations screen alot and think it looks way better than the default screen.

UPDATE: I just logged online in SWAT3, went back to desktop and refreshed the main page with the server/players online information and it automatically said 1 player was online. I just wanted to inform you it seems to be working properly.

Thanks for testing. That module works as I hoped for the most part. If the IP gets changed and I haven't updated the server files it will properly report that the server is down. I have noticed however that if the RoutingServerG2 "crashes" the module still thinks everything is okay and incorrectly reports that the server is up when in reality you can't join with Swat 3. Even the command window on the server will show that everything is fine when it isn't. Thankfully that doesn't happen too often.

It's the least I could do. I know you need people to test the new things you come out with so I try to do what little I can. And yeah thankfully that doesn't happen much. It shouldn't be too much of a problem then. Any idea what would have to be done to fix that issue? Just wondering

Nope. Haven't noticed a pattern yet of what causes it. My kid uses that computer to code his Arduino projects on sometimes. Not sure if that is a factor.

Server is down despite what the frontpage module says, lol. The server can't get an authentication certificate from Ben's server for some reason.

Update: Wed Sept 6 12:43pm EST the server still can't a certificate. Everything should be working. Nothing changed at my end. Gonna email Ben.

Update 2: All is back to normal. Problem was Ben's end.

So I just got home and I usually load SWAT3 up just to see if anyone is on by chance. Anyways I got this...
Highly unlikely considering this is the same CD I've had since buying this game over 10 years ago. It worked back when the Sierra servers were up and it has worked since the Neuwon patch has been put out. Any ideas Jim?
