New servers? What do the people want?

It's 2020 and HGN and everyone is not getting younger. We can setup any server the community wants to play, but we need people to run such servers, to create what the community desires.

Currently it appears only Terraria is still running with a staffing team. If someone is interested in taking on a Minecraft roleplay server, starbound server, this can be arranged. We can host anything from Arma 3 to an ark survival evolved server if there is demand.

It's always sunny in Philadelphia

Prime Minister Theresa May's EU withdrawal deal has been rejected by MPs for a second time, throwing her Brexit strategy into further confusion.

MPs voted down her deal by 391 to 242 - a smaller defeat than when they rejected it in January.

The PM said MPs will now get a vote on whether the UK should leave without a deal on 29 March and, if that fails, on whether Brexit should be delayed.

She said Tory MPs will get a free vote on a no-deal Brexit.

That means they can vote with their conscience rather than following the orders of party managers.

If the Commons declines to approve a no-deal Brexit in a vote on Wednesday, a vote on extending Article 50, the legal mechanism taking the UK out of the EU on 29 March, will take place on Thursday, said Mrs May.

In The News / RIP Stan Lee
« on: 12-11-2018 »

American writer and former president of Marvel Comics Stan Lee has died at the age of 95.

In 1961, Lee and Jack Kirby created The Fantastic Four for Marvel Comics and went on to create titles including Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk.

Lee's wife, Joan, died in 2017 - also aged 95 - but he is survived by his daughter, JC Lee.

Speaking to celebrity news website TMZ, JC said her father was "the greatest, most decent man".

The legendary comic book author died at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday after a medical emergency, according to Variety magazine.

In recent years, Lee had periodically suffered from illnesses, including a bout of pneumonia, US media reported.

Bob Iger, chairman of the Walt Disney Company, which bought Marvel Comics for $4bn (2.5bn) in 2009, called Lee "a super hero in his own right" in a statement.

"The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart."

The Library of Congress and US Copyright Office outlined the new set of exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in a "final rule" document (PDF) spanning 85 pages. In it are several new protections that legally allow consumers and repair shops to hack the firmware on devices like smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, mobile computing devices, and several other gadgets where technological protection measures (TPMs, but not the same as a Trusted Platform Module) stand between the consumer and a functioning product.

even covers "computer programs, where the circumvention is undertaken on a lawfully acquired device or machine on which the computer program operates, or is undertaken on a computer, computer system, or computer network on which the computer program operates with the authorization of the owner or operator of such computer, computer system, or computer network, solely for the purpose of good-faith security research and does not violate any applicable law, including without limitation the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986."

There's also a section on videogames that covers instances "when the copyright owner or its authorized representative has ceased to provide access to an external computer server necessary to facilitate an authentication process to enable gameplay."

In such instances, a new exemption allows for "copying and modification of the computer program to restore access to the game for personal, local gameplay on a personal computer or video game console."

Solar panels unveiled at Chernobyl nuclear power site

Ukraine launches its first solar plant in the abandoned area around the former nuclear power station.

A new solar power plant has been built at the site of the former Chernobyl nuclear power station, The Chernobyl plant was the site of a catastrophic nuclear disaster in 1986, Radioactive material was released into the atmosphere across parts of Europe, leading to a rise in cases of thyroid cancer

The area around the plant is now part of an exclusion zone spanning 1,000 square miles (2,600 sq km), The Chernobyl plant was decommissioned and forced to close in 2000, Ukraine has now launched its first solar plant in the abandoned area around the former power station.

The country's government wants renewable energy companies to develop the abandoned land, The site will create enough energy to power around 2,000 households, However people will not be able to return to live in the evacuated zone for another 24,000 years, Ukrainian authorities say

I've been doing alot of work to bring HGN's forums up to standard with the latest technology.

Website is now running latest version of SMF. I have implemented bootstrap and used a fairly modern theme. There's still a fair amount of work to bring it up to scratch of where it needs to be but for now, it's at least up to date.

Update: Added back avatars on board, auto-videos, sub-forums, board icons, various fixes, https forced for security.

This is a walk through guide is based on gerSlikey's guide at sc2mapster

This is so  you can export models\assets from a map, many private maps feature assets you cannot obtain elsewhere and stifles the development of SC2, credit should still be directed towards the asset developers.

What do I need for this tutorial?
You have to download an MPQ Editor. In this case I used the first hit at Important: Choose the "MPQ Editor with listfiles ..."

After downloading, you have to install it anywhere you want

I downloaded the program, next?
The files of the custom maps are hidden, but you can typically find them in these directories:

Windows Vista / 7 / 10
C:\ ProgramData \ Blizzard Entertainment \ \ Cache

Windows XP
C:\ Users \ YOUR PC USER \ AppData \ Local \ Blizzard Entertainment \ \ Cache

When you enter this folder you will get a shock at first, but don't worry, we have a solution. The files for which we search have the ending:


Type this into you search and look through the hole Cache folder. All these files have a crypted filename and I don't know the algorithm. There are two possibilities.

Method 1

Download the chosen map once and then look at the dates of the files. Compared the file time and choose the latest one. It looks like that.

Method 2

Delete all files in folder: C:\ ProgramData \ Blizzard Entertainment \ StarCraft II \ Maps \ Cache

Run Starcraft 2 and start a lobby with the map you wish to use, let it download. Exit the game.

Now go back to this folder, search *.s2ma file and copy any of these files you found to a seperate directory.

Since you are after models, typically the larger the .s2ma file, the more likely that it's the map you want to unpack, so start opening the maps until you find the resources you are looking for.

Typically models are in:

.m3 format and textures are located in assets/ -  Right click on the desired content you want to export in the program and  press "Extract" and save to a directory.

Then load up whatever map you want to use and import the assets, make sure the folder structure is the same.
