Well. I wish you a successfully experience there as a game designer. I hope we will see you here so often as possible. I wish you a good time there.

So chances are none of you remember me, or if you do, it's not exactly flattering.

This isn't much of a hello/goodbye - I check in every now and then, though rarely post. I've been on GT since the old days and still remember when convering stuff from BF1 was the main basis/goal of many mods. I remember when Y4A's Asajj Ventress was brand spankin' new. I remember when Lord Bandu's conversions were eagerly awaited... all good times. It's a great kind of crazy to see this site is still here, and still has a small but active and loyal community.

I'm not much of a modder anymore - it's not for lack of interest. It pains me greatly to have never completed my mods, but my time has evaporated since college began and my windows 8 laptop can support a smoother BF2 than I've ever had before but I can't get the mod tools quite right, even with the tuts here. I've pretty much abandoned my two previous projects, another remake of my old Cantina map (I was hoping to get someone to help me with a model edit on that one) and the Bespin: Imperial City conversion (which was going fabulous until I added lighting and somehow destroyed the map -_-)

Maybe someday I'll get time and the ability to have things working again and give it another try. My knowledge and patience have *greatly* increased since my heyday of half-assed modding.

Good to see 'yall!

Welcome back. We're from different GT eras, but I've seen you around in the archives. Always nice to see an old member return, even if it's just to say high.

With Win8 it's unlikely you'll be able to work on creating brand new maps, but you can always do era/side mods.

We've had a few cool mods come out over the last few years so let us know if you need help finding them.

Wait, why? Does ZE have problems on Win 8? Where is this data I have not seen?

Dude, heh, where have you been. You're the exception not the rule. Every OS since Vista has had issues with ZE. I ran ZE fine on this hardware when I had XP, but then I couldn't once I switched to Win7 (totally worth it though).

Oh. I thought that I had seen somewhere that someone else was able to run it on Win 8. Yeah, I'm dropping out of things. I check pretty often, but I don't read half the stuff.

I'm running 8.1 and my modtools work fine. ZeroEditor took a little bit of convincing but it's okay for me now. I just used the Windows 7 munge fix, and I had to tinker with the permissions for the modtools folder in order to get ZE working. A fairly long story for a more relevant thread perhaps.

Recently installed the tools on a new PC I built and have Win8.1 on. First time running ZE it crashed but I just set my Windows login with full permissions on the folder and now it works. munge files also needed fix but that's standard by now right?

That's more or less what I had to do.
And yep, the munge fix is pretty standard these days.

I run Win8 x64 perfectly on my computer, as well as my brother's computer and the desktop, all on Win8.

Nobody is going to see this, probably. But I'm feeling oddly nostalgic and just decided to check on gametoast and it makes me a little bit deeeepressed. SWBF, and the gametoast community were a really big part of a lot of important years of my life. It's stupid. It was just a game, but now it's just completely dead and it makes me sad. Stupid. Anyway, this pointless communication into space is done.

I definitely know what you mean, Snork. I'm just sad I missed most of it considering how the year that I joined was when everything started to die down. :(

It's certainly not as active as it was in the old days but I wouldn't say it's completely dead. There's a handful of people who frequent the forums and I think most of us are working away on mod projects in some of our spare time. :)

We're in smaller numbers, but we're not dead yet.
