John P. Has released v1.0124 of the TWGS server. Grab it. Here’s what’s new:
“All past attempts at solving the extern scheduling problems have ended in failure because I have been focusing on the wrong problems. It seems that my code was fine, but the windows timer events were triggering when they weren’t supposed to. This revision includes a replacement for windows timers, so extern SHOULD run as scheduled from now on. But I’m not making any promises 😉
Even though the extern problem was OS specific (it seemed to be happening on some Win95 systems), I would like all gameops to install this revision so we can get a thorough test of the new scheduling mechanism.”
The Idea of Extern Actually Working is a concept foreign to most of you, but it looks like the legend during the times of yore when Extern actually ran on a consistant schedule may return.
