New Community “Picture Album Tab” + Picture of Helios.

Found by danthom a few moments ago is a change by CM to the forums. They have now added a “Picture Album Tab“. I presume this is the work of Satine as she already has a flickr account, and seems to be a person that likes to bridge the gap of Corporation and Community – as noted also by the blog. I don’t know if it’s her or her job. Regardless, Two of the new pictures found are relevant to us.

First found is a Picture of 1st1 – French Community Manager for OFP2 (or at least was, don’t know if still is).

1st1

Second is of Sun God Helios working hard – or at the very least staring intensely at a screen. This is how he get’s the big bucks. Look stressed and make it look like your going all out. For all I know he might be reading the fourms or dealing with one of my (Sir. Polaris) ‘Kind IM conversations’. Both is enough to give some one a early retirement.

Lord Helios provider of Man

Show your support to Helios!
That being noted I am sending out a general call for fans of OFP2 to share some love for Helios by filling his photo with random comments and or spam – What ever you do best. Show your love by making him the be dev in the office with the biggest fanbase. It’s the least we can do for all the dedication he gives us.

Make it happen Community Heroes! Post a comment on Helios’ Page. Lets push it to 20 at least.

A new preview and screens

Just getting this one out before going to bed (11:50PM EST). There is 2 good screens and a few shots of Tim Browne playing OFP2 on what looks like a DELL XPS. Which is good news for PC gamers as the XPS is aged tech nowadays.

InGame

All the Pictures are viewable as allways on Flickr – Please share the flickr links and help the community grow.

23/07/09 – A.I. Commands

A new A.I. command has just been revealed by Helios, this new command is the ability to assault a building. At the minuite we only know that it is assault a building but it is likely to have multiple options. (Much like that of the artillery firing ability of barrage etc…)

So if this holds true we may see different types of assaulting an ability such as (Speculative) Stealthy assault etc…

The game has an “assault building” command that instructs your fireteam to enter and secure a building.

Spam Scripts Blocked

After 1500 lines and 80kb of “Deny from”’s later. I have stopped the Turkish Telecom provider Turk Telekom and it’s league of spam riddled clients. As such anyone from Turkey and more so Turkish Telecom provider Turk Telekom will no longer be able to view this website. As well any major known spam ring has been banned as well, as it is possible my host has failed to ban them.

There might be a little bit more lag then normal as a 80kb file is checked every time a page is loaded. However now we can sleep knowing the spammers (or at least this bunch are dead). I would like to Thank Fin for helping out on IRC and the Heroes group and Hi3rling for moral support.

We are still incurring loss to our bandwith, I have opened communciation with my providers to perhaps get them stopped at a server level.

Possible Website downtime

Due to a security leak this website has had it’s bandwidth burned by Turkish Spammers. There is a good chance the website will go offline in the next 2 days. If this happens it may be till the 20th or the 31st until it flips over. I am currently in communications with my webhosting to see if somthing can be done about this issue, without incurring a large unneeded cost.

This downtime will not affect any of the off site groups, flickr, or the toolbar. The data on this website will remain, access will be restricted and the site will display a “bandwidth exceeded” message.

For uninterrupted service please join the mailing list. Daily RSS e-mails sent though the mailing list will not recive any new content as they draw from this website.

I am working to correct this issue with my limited webskills. I have identified the problem as the Fansite Topsite listing with all 2.2 gigs of dammage done from middle yesterday to this morning.

Further updates will be posted below and then though the mailing list if this website goes down.

Intel – Geek Out – Interview and Particle Emitter Demo

OFP2 Particle Effects Simulation

Intel – Geek Out – Interview and Particle Emitter Demo

Posted moments ago by Helios was a link to a Intel sponsored interview with a flash tech simulator. This simulator shows you how Particle emitters work in games, and allows you to make your own explosion. It is really quite the fun and has a good level of depth.

http://OperationFlashpoint2.org is looking to see your submissions, please post in the comments in this news post your creations – we want to see them!

In this exclusive interview with Intel Game On, Codemasters’ Andrew Dennison, Rendering Group Lead on Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising explains why, if you want realism, you don’t just need a capable graphics card, you need a powerful CPU.

The Geekout notes a second interview. The next interview will be in regards to the very important AI path finding code.

The questions have been reposted for archival purposes below.
