  1. Sorry you didn't get it to work Renato. I'm not sure what you were trying to achieve with LUA.
  2. "A dingo's got me baby!" :music_whistling:
  3. Hey Ranato, some ideas below. Bare in mind, I haven't touched lockon or lockon stats for years. I did re-upload the http://www.lomac-stats.com website for you to see. 1. if($victim == 'S-300PS 5P85D ln') { $victim_dirty = $victim; } else { $victim_dirty = ereg_replace("\(.*\)", "", $victim); } $victim_pristine = str_replace("-","_",$victim_dirty); Those are unix timestamps. Here is a sample conversion: $unixtime = '1222611216' $time = gmdate("Y-m-d H:i:s", $unixtime); echo $time; 2. From memory, only landing is recorded. This makes it impossible to calculate flight time unfortunately. 3. For lomac-stats.com I used a cron like scheduler. In windows you can use a scheduler too. You just run the processor. c:\php\php.exe c:\lomac\pre_processor.php The database suppresses duplicates so you can just keep on piping in the logs. I ended up creating a lockon server launcher which submitting the mp_log.txt after each mission was finished. Unfortunately I don't have that launcher anymore. 4. You need to use the php scandir() function. You get an array returned which you can use as a while loop. The while loop would be calling the pre_processor.php file. <?php $dir = "c:\logs"; $dh = opendir($dir); while (false !== ($filename = readdir($dh))) { $files[] = $filename; } sort($files); print_r($files); ?>
  4. Wow this campaign model sounds similar to the one i developed for Lockon with LODC. Wags do you plan to allow the mission to finish on objective completion rather than simply time? This would be helpful in MP campaign setup.
  5. Hey All, Since Lockon represents the bulk of the touch-buddy users, just wanted to give you an update on the server migration issue. Its a bit of a long and boring story. From a hardware firewall dying to cisco sending out an incorrect power cable and other little bizarre problems. Once the new cable arrives today, it will be a matter of re-configuring the firewall and we'll then be good to go. Thanks to our users for being patient. Dodger
  6. S77th used to fly a great BVR mission in SU33 vs F-14 with Phoenix missiles. The best way to beat that phoenix was to beam, then turn towards the missile when the tews started counting down to impact. The turn towards the missile was always at the best turn speed which was relatively slow.
  7. Nice stats Torwak. What language did you write it in?
  8. Join the S77th. They have some outstanding carrier landing tutorials which helped me heaps.
  9. Strap that to one of those remote control turbines...
  10. Nice one Yoda - rep inbound for sharing - sadly such sharing is not commonplace these days.
  11. Your system sounds good. Do you plan to make the mission victory parameters configurable via a GUI or is text file only? Also, will this be an RvE exclusive, or will it be available to the community?
  12. Fingers crossed on some improvements. Editor created mission objectives are only logged at the end of the mission rather than when the objective is complete. With the mission rotator / campaign code I wrote, the objectives were based on a2a or a2g kills (quantity) only. Goya and I did a bunch of testing for mission objectives but sadly it was fruitless.
  13. What would be nice would be for mission objectives (set in mission editor) to be logged when they are achieved. Goya and I have harped on about this in the past. It would allow a much more effective pseudo-dynamic mission rotator. Does anybody know if BS brings changes to the MPlog.txt?
  14. Looks good Yoda. Did you sort out your combo key strokes problem?
  15. Damn those are sweat pics. The A380 engines are huge compared to the 74s.
  16. Not really. In the case of engine failure, both wings still weigh the same. In this case you have an extra few tons on one side. I guess more importantly... when is ED going to model this? :/
  17. My folks just took a trip from Sydney to Singapore on Qantas. They were delayed 4 hours at the airport. I thought my old man was joking when he told me they strapped on an extra turbine for a total of 5. I couldn't see that really working from a weight/balance/drag scenario. But sure enough I found this: Some people musta been confused when they saw this thing taxiing about.
  18. That's pretty amazing. No doubt the pilot would have done plenty of pre-flight inspections. You'd hope for his sake he paid attention to details like this. I did a pre-flight on an aircraft once and found a spanner attached to a bolt underneath the fuselage. :)
  19. Hey Andy, I haven't noticed any changes at that website for sometime. Is it still developed? I'd be happy to release the LODC code to anybody (under GPL license). It's around 1000 lines of relatively easy to read code.
  20. Wow, this one was revived from a while back. LODC was up and running perfectly. Goya helped a lot with the testing (thanks G). We ran a few campaigns, but the community was pretty quiet as this was all going down, and there wasn't a lot of interest, so I haven't touched it since. I have the code still. Since it was prototype, there was a fair few manual things that needed to be done on a server, like making some directories etc. Campaign files are XML and trivial to make.
