Upgrading Stuffit to 10.0 did the trick... looks like the default version that ships with OSX (at least what I got) was 7.x... two years out of date, and it opened the archive corrupted, but without error. Odd.

I see the __MACOSX folder as well... but it's just a collection of empty folders. :-(

Bug: Can't run BRPG on my Mac (Stuffit Version Error)

I'm not sure this is a bug... it's probably something I'm doing wrong, or maybe an instruction I missed... but I can't get the BRPG to start on my Mac. The windows version starts up just fine for me (and I'll get around to the linux testing later this week), but it's a no-go for me on OS X. Maybe I'...

Running Screen Monkey as a server, even with Zone Alarm Pro running, I had no trouble. Ah, there's the trick. You're running a software firewall. What I was saying is that if anyone on the internet can connect to any port on your computer without hitting a firewall first, you've got a potentially s...

Such proxy blocking usually occurs as a result of a third party (from whom your employer buys blacklists) tagging a particular URL with a catagory identifier (such as "games") that your company has chosen to block. If you're a "take the law into your own hands" sort of person, you can actually get a...

Another option might be to simply use the wiki you've already got set up. Depending on which package you're using, you may be able to add page templates or special formatting rules without too much work.

I'm guessing the 10015 is used for some other traffic that would normally be open. Uh, probably not. Anything over 1024 is suspect for having open by default, from a strictly network-security point of view. Common ports for home servers would be: 22 = ssh 23 = telnet 25 = smtp (email) 80 = http (we...

I'll pre-order it for the same reason I'd make a donation if it was FOSS: because it looks like a good product that I'm happy to financially support (in my own little way). If pre-ordering helps the development effort in any way (even just in giving Heruca a warm and fuzzy that his product has alrea...

I like the new ad. It does run a little long, but it's perfectly functional. Can't see why anyone else might have an issue with it.

Not sure if that's a serious question or not... but if it is, and if memory serves, in PHPBB (at least, the last time I used it) I think you have to modify the template itself. I'm pretty sure it's not a config setting... could be wrong though.

You could consider doing a "pre-order" option. End-users save a few bucks, you get cash up front to advertsise with... still hit the Christmas market.

Just a thought.

Don't dial-up (including AOL) users get assigned an IP the moment they log on? Depends on the service. Honestly, I don't even remember how dialup (PPP?) systems work anymore. But I'm pretty sure that a standard AOL account will not allow you to host anything. The same is probably also true of thing...

As long as there's any sort of visual queue that two things occupy the same spot on the map (turn the border yellow, a mouseover flag, etc...), I think BGRP has done its part.

I will keep this discussion in mind if I ever switch ISPs and they offer a solution which includes a "non-public NATed IP address". Unfortunately, I think non-public IPs and port-blocking may start to become more common in the coming years. There are two main reasons why it's done: 1) The total num...

What I mean is users on the inside of the router\firewall utilize private IP addresses and have the internal IP address of the router set as their gateway. The router in turn, has an external public IP address that it uses for communicating with the Internet. The client PCs make their requests to t...

Of course, that means the fog of war layer will have to be saved along with the rest of the game, or your explored area will have vanished when you pick up where you left off the previous game session. All depends on how much RP you want in your RPG... If the players don't bother mapping things out...
