I dont know if its just me, however im finding a lot of emails in my junk folder everyday now. Last time I checked I had 159 junk emails - which was only empted a few days ago. I know sometimes good emails get in the junk folder, however I dont really have time to sort through so many emails each day.

Probably in 5 minutes ill probably have another 5 junk emails.

Am I the only one getting so much junk? ... Read more

Beep.. Beep.. Beep

That noise drives me up the wall... from either waking you up, or walking down the street all you hear sometimes is *beep *beep. I dont know who's idea it was, but putting beepers onto workmen vehicles was a bad idea. Maybe its just me, but dont you ever get fed up hearing that noise? Rarely a day go pass without hearing the dreaded *beep *beep... Bash the wall ... Read more

Bad Mojo

Posted by NetHawk on Wednesday 18th May, 2011 | Comment 1 comments

Heyo to everyone reading this Big grin
Lately, I got tons of stuff to do. it's a hell for me at the moment, school is going into final rounds of tests, project deadlines are closing with FTL (faster then light), and I'm tired.
Nonetheless I started work on a TShip editor for X3 Reunion and possibly X3 Terran Conflict.
While all info I need has been provided by Roguey, I still found some issues with it. For starters there is anything from 63 to 295 entries for a single ship. Many are Turret and Front Gun points and definitions, and while this isn't a big deal per se, it kinda destroyed my illusion of it being a simple parsing program.
I'm kinda known by now for over-engineering things, but most of the time, somehow the project gets done, better then the initial idea (what-the-ship magazine for example).
This one is no exception, I want to support X3R, X3TC, multiple languages (as in..english, german etc.), and different mods. Sounds simple 'eh?
well it's not all that complicated, really, it's doable...but there is a slight problem.
For the last 2 months, any project I touch seems to get more complicated each time I just think about it. Usually, the more you work on a project, the easier it gets...but lately....well things are different for me. Me being tired and in dire need of some vacation ... Read more

Bozo's Blog 2

Posted by bozo64r on Wednesday 11th May, 2011 | Comment 3 comments

*coughs and curses* damn I lost my script.... here goes nothing!

I have recently started Roguey's forum again, i spent a lot of time off, when I was not playing on the X games.
I have re-started the campaign again, but cause I was board I scripted a Federation Defiant Class into my game, M2 class, with 4x10GJ shields :P I could not be bothered having a challenge.... and I did put in on X-treame mode... but then again I see no difference between that and normal.

I have now gone off X2 and X3TC and can't wait for XR to come out it shall be good.

[h1]In other news.....[/h1]

Nothing much more to say, I have added a 'Story time 2' post in which an ongoing story is made... it shall be fun. So far we have Argon Core dead and a lone person called Leon in an M7 being blasted off in Kha'ak space. Standard day for JB i bet :P

I have been doing some thinking lately on X Rebirth, it is saying that the suprenova destroyed it all.... I think this is going to ruin the concept of X, If you think about it, destroying the main 5 (or 6 is terran's are involved) races and making them weak, for one, the Xenon which are still at large even after X3TC probably would just cycle through and obliterate everyone, anyway enough bibble babble.(Mr.T might yell at me)

That's it for know.... tune in next ... Read more

X3 » Introduction, and X3 Reunion stuff

Posted by NetHawk on Monday 9th May, 2011 | Comment 1 comments

Ok, this seems to be my first blog entry. Well hello to everyone who reads this, and without bothering you too much, this is what's going to be happening around here: I'm going to ramble about anything I feel about.
Sounds good doesn't it?

A couple of things I want to tell everyone, first off, If you like anything I create, please drop by and say hello.
Seondly if you DON'T like something, or would change something, drop by, say hello, explain what and why you would change it. Maybe I'll feel the same way, or maybe I'll make a special version for that.
Thirdly, I will NOT bother scripting for TC. I haven't played it, and unless it gets ported to linux I probably won't. For this matter I cannot be bothered to script for it.
And lastly, I will keep my scripts working for Roguey's Mod WITH classic rules.
Now this might seem strange, but when I won't have much choice but decide on particular stuff, I will work for that. My stuff will be probably working with anything else, but might be a little un-balanced. Every mod and script that is tailored to these will have it noted IN the readme and in the description.

I guess that's it for introduction, now to the beef.
I'm waiting to get a working (WINE or otherwise) external script editor, since the in-game is ... Read more

Making money in X-Tension

Posted by Roguey on Friday 29th April, 2011 | Comment 0 comments

Ive been playing X-Tension for a few hours now and found out the fastest way of making money in X-Tension is by capturing Pirate Orinoco's (M3). Each one is worth around half a million! You wont find such easy money is that.

Blog picture

I recommend 2 lasers, a powerful one (such as a A-HEPT) and the other to keep the shields down (A-PAC) for bailing. At first use both lasers to bring the shields down to like 10%, then remove the A-HEPT (by either pressing 1 or 2). Carry on holding the shields down with you A-PAC. Hopefully after few seconds they will bail.

Sometimes they will never bail, so dont spend 2 hours trying to capture one Orinoco. I hope that helps!

You may even find the bailed ship contains a shield, weapon or something else too. Making Orinoco's even more worthwhile! ... Read more

Starting X-Tension

Posted by Roguey on Wednesday 27th April, 2011 | Comment 0 comments

Yesterday I started X-Tension after finishing the plot in X-BTF.

X-Tension was a big leap from X-BTF, with maps, changeable ships, ship stats, missions and capturing. I havnt got far yet but I found something interesting, which I thought may help to anyone playing it.

Once you have enough money, get 5 x Silkworm missiles. You can buy these from Equipment dock (in Argon Prime). A good idea is to save now. Next find a Argon Elite without a homebase and follow it. Once you can close enough, launch all 5 missiles (with roughly a 100-200ms delay). After all 5 hit, the Argon Elite shields should be very low and you have a chance of him bailing. If he didnt, then re-load and try again. After a few attempts he may bail and you get an Argon Elite for 5 silkworm missiles. Be careful not to destroy any ships because you will lose a lot of your reputation. You can repeat this a few times and get half million credits for each elite.

When you start X-Tenision you wont have enough money to buy 5 silkworm missiles, so try and capture something like a Goner ship. Goner ships are unarmed and not too fast. Capturing one Goner ship shouldnt hurt your ratings too much, but will give you enough for the missiles.

An Argon Elite is quite an upgrade from the Buster. If youre really lucky you may get ... Read more
