KMod 2.8?

Sun, 28 Sep 2008 17:10:34

Unfortunately, KMod 3.0b is quite unstable on my machine, crashing several times during a single (45 minute) play session. From what I understand, 3.0 is again being developed and a release may happen in the coming months. That is most certainly an event I look forward too. However, I remember this mod fondly from it's earlier incarnations, and remember it being stable, yet I cannot locate a working download link for any previous versions of the mod. I was hoping someone could direct me to one for 2.8, or any other previous, stable version, so I can again enjoy the mod until 3.0 is released "Retail", if you will. It would be most appreciated.

Hi Lich, First off I'm glad to hear that you are excited about the pending release of KMod3, little things like this tend to help encourage me to work harder. And secondly, you can find downloads for each of our older releases on the sourceforge website, but to make things a little quicker for you here is a link. Korax Mod Downloads on Source Forge.

Greatly appreciated. I was unable to find the older files, only 3.0 and the source code. I'll be lurking around this place, silently rooting you on <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc4.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->

You can't be serious, you just click on a version and you get a download link.

[quote="RambOrc":3fzv0wkj]You can't be serious, you just click on a version and you get a download link. See if you can follow me. Google search for "Korax Hexen Mod" (REF = <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.google.com/search?q=korax+hexen+mod&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a">http://www.google.com/search?q=korax+he ... =firefox-a</a><!-- m -->) leads to the main Korax Heritage page (3rd link). From here (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.korax-heritage.com/kmod/kmod.php">http://www.korax-heritage.com/kmod/kmod.php</a><!-- m -->), we click downloads, which leads directly to the sourceforge site. (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=34156">http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... p_id=34156</a><!-- m -->). From there, clicking downloads reveals, LO-AND-BEHOLD, the following files. Korax Arena. Korax-Mod (3.0) Korax Arena 2nd Trailer. So, what do you think a returning gamer from 2+ years ago will do upon seeing those 3 files? Download the newest (and what one would assume is the most stable) version. Yet, when this version crashes repeatedly in play sessions shorter than sitcoms (IE 4 times in 20 mintues), instead of being completely turned off and simply uninstalling, he remembers the quality of KMod's previous incarnations, and goes to the forums to show support. Seeing as how the mod is just recently revived and there is no indication on the sites HOME PAGE of older versions being hosted or supported, he didn't think to dig deeper on the sourceforge page. Instead, seeing others supposedly playing older versions, he believes that perhaps a fan-community had such files hosted on private web servers and thus asks others who're playing older versions to direct him so he can continue to show support. Moose then politely corrects him, greeting him with enthusiasm as a returning fan, and directs him to the older versions (directly to them, not just sourceforge's KMod top listing). Now, it could have ended at that, a polite developer and project member directing a returning fan to an older version while that fan waits for the newer version. Or, someone with a nice, pretty PROJECT LEAD button beneath his name could come to the thread, and decide it might be a good idea to be kind of dickish. Please direct your condescension elsewhere. I followed the site links which indicated in no way that older versions were supported.

Or you could've just clicked the link "Korax-Mod" on the same line to see a download list of all previous versions.

Basically, you failed at the basics of browsing the internet and try to make it look like the internet's fault, in the process also insulting the team that worked for your enjoyment. <!-- s=D> --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa_clap.gif" alt="=D>" title="Applause" /><!-- s=D> --> We are not charging anything for the work we've done but obviously giving it away for free is not enough, we should get some silver trays to serve it on. A Mexican houseboy to serve it maybe? <!-- s](*,) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa_wall.gif" alt="](*,)" title="Brick wall" /><!-- s](*,) -->

Basically, I downloaded a buggy as fuck mod that I used to play back in the day. However, remembering the quality of that mod from when I used to play it, I joined the forums, showed my support for the continued development, and asked if older (more stable) versions were hosted. I was informed that they were and directed to a download link. I proceeded to thank the poster for his time, and again, indicated my support for the mod. The only insulting that occurred was when a pretentious asshole decided to flame me, AFTER the thread had been resolved. I then explained why in a quick, 5 minute search for what to download, one might take the listed downloads at face value, to which aforementioned pretentious asshole again decided to continue his douche-baggery. Nowhere in my posts did I attack the developer team of the mod, nor demand that the mod be delivered by mexican servants. I simply explained how I had missed the link. The only person I've taken issue with is the asshole who, instead of being pleased that someone played their work in the past and remembered it fondly enough to come to the forums and show their support, decided he was going to be a huge cockwad and be hugely condescending. tl;dr - I've insulted no one here, having in fact praised the developers for their past works, and mentioned my excitement for their future works. I did, however, reply to a condescending douchebag in kind. His role in mod development has nothing to do with me taking affront to him being a total dick.

You have implicitly criticized the guys doing the website part of the project when you complained about links that didn't do what you assumed they would and about news not being to your liking. I am not going to let some "fan" badmouth my teammates. Since you obviously have nothing to say, I am locking your account from posting (any further attempts at registering new accounts or posting will result in banning you from even reading).

[quote="RambOrc":3g9zrg6j]I am locking your account from posting (any further attempts at registering new accounts or posting will result in banning you from even reading). Wow, that's rough. I hate situations like this when a simple problem gets over discussed, both sides always comment out stuff from their opponent's posts to try and prove their rightness, and it gets worse and worse until one of the sides lose their patience, or give up.

I left all his posts untouched for the very reason that anybody can see why his account was disabled.

I think that Lich got carried away with his discussion, because he blamed the site for the problem he had, instead of looking a bit further on it, part of the problem is also the sourceforge.net site's "new and improved" UI, I don't quite like it at all... it seems to have complicated the way of navigating the site. But we can't do anything about it... EDIT: I also please want you ppl to remember that we are working on this on our FREE TIME, we aren't obliged in ANY WAY to deliver updates when you think it's appropriate or to make new releases on demand, stuff is done when it's done... no further complains about this please... Lastly, when we mark a public release as BETA RELEASE, it's because it's a work in progress (WIP) version for TESTING PURPOSES ONLY... it's very clear that it MIGHT CRASH UNEXPECTEDLY and in small lapses of time, which is very different from FINAL RELEASE, which is called like that because it has been tested more properly. The only thing you make me think of all this problems, is that we shouldn't make any more BETA releases since people keep bitching of their buggy nature, we are doing an extra effort in putting them together for you to EARLY TEST our project progress, it's OK to report bugs, but by doing so, you SHOULD NOT EXPECT fixes from one day to another, we begin working on new features that need testing and polishing off, and it takes TIME to do this, as we work on our free time as I already told, you can't expect us to be releasing new things everyday. I hope this clears out why Ramborc got all pushed by the way this guy reacted. I think we can improve on respect on both sides (development team to fans and fans to development team respect), to avoid further problems like this one. Thanks in advance! and keep enjoying our projects <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc9.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->.

Dont forget to put a note next time: "BETA MEANS INCOMPLETE so expect bugs and crashes!" << like here <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc4.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->
