Like many people we were pretty concerned about Hurricane Gustav. Initial reports said it would still be a hurricane when it reach east Texas. Luckily for us it lost most of its force before it got to us. We did get a lot of wind but it looks like the only really damage was some roofing of the old barn blew off and a door broke. So we are thankful that it wasn’t worse. The rain wasn’t as bad as predicted, we got less than 2″.
One thing that we did do was a lot of prep work and while most of the things I did weren’t needed, I’m glad we were ready just in case.
I’ve been need a few FPS games to play lately. Satellite gameplay is no fun. So I’ve been searching for some free ones for OSX. The one in the image is called Warsow.
I did have a few problems. I’m pretty sure that it’s related to the package, but none of the maps will let you play with bots, it gives you a no nav map error, I think this is only on the Mac version. To solve this you just need to do the following:
1. Go into devmap mode, this is done by pressing the ~ when you have the game loaded up and type: devmap mapname.
2. Type: makenodes
This can take several minutes. Once all the link messages stop going by its done.
3. Type: savenodes
This took several minutes on mine and eventually it disconnected. Once I reconnected bots were working just fine.
While the bots seem to be a little non aggressive from a distance, once in range there aim is deadly.
