Still no support for INS yet then? Ah well, roll on 1.2.1 :D

Is there a rough eta yet? don't mean to be pushy-just love HLSW and can't wait for a 100% working version-keep up the good work

Any chance you could email me when a new version is available? Pretty annoying not being able to log into RCON on my CS:S server since upgrading to 1.2.0

Also how about letting me/us see unicode characters in console? It's irritated me for ages that player names keep getting scrambled in console logs.

Hmmmmm I dont have any problems using Rcon. My server is a fresh install so that could be it.

I hope this doesn't increase cpu/ram usage...
I programs with tons of features and worse and worse performance (like new Windows Styles).

ET: Quake Wars is missing :)

On Sep 16, 2007 Juzzy84 wrote...

Yes, ETQW is missing..

And in 1.2.0 I can't double click on the applications menu (top left hlsw icon that has move, resize, close) to close it, it won't close..

I'm using Vista Home Premium.. this is an annoyance..

but keep up the good work... also why do we have to login to hlsw? .. whats the purpose of it?

On Sep 16, 2007 Detritus wrote...

ET:QW will be added to 1.2.1, the next release.
The purpose of the login is to give you access to the HLSW buddylist & chat, more features that are planned in future.

a beta version for testing etqw support can be found in the hlsw forum now.

i installed this new version on my Vista Home Premium and it doesn't work right. every time i put a server list, it dissapear when i restart the hlsw program. sometimes just a couple of servers dissapears. why?

i've had to install the latest old version HLSW v1.1.6 and that version works fine on my Vista Home Premium.

when i put a password in a password box for a certain server, server disconnect me when i try to connect because it doesn't read the password from pass-box. why?

I posted a request about an updated buddy list a long time ago in the forums. The type of buddy list/player tracker would be one that looks for a particular name including any color codes used in the name.

That had been a very nice feature in the All Seeing Eye program and has worked great for years.

Just make it so you can click on a player's name while they are on a server and add them to your buddy list/player tracker and have their name appear when they are playing on a server that is on your server list.

Not everyone uses HLSW as much as you may want it and that type of buddy tracker would be much more useful than the newly revamped version.

Gamers already have Xfire/irc and the host of other messenger programs to use to communicate.

A buddy list that is useful for all players even ones that don't use HLSW would be more practical.

I cannot auto-login in offline mode anymore. I really liked that feature so HLSW started up as quick as possible. Maybe you could bring it back in the new version?

BTW thanks for an awesome product and for throwing ioquake3 in there so i don't have to use two applications for my gaming. =D

Could you make the use of the buddy system optional. I don't want to be forced to login before accessing my server list.

I also have odd issues with certain servers. This happened in 1.1.6 as well. A specific server will time out for 5 seconds, every other five seconds. Very odd, and irritating. Its an issue with hlsw, as the server is still responding and pinging when hlsw thinks its down. It will be the same server every time I fire hlsw up. When I upgraded to 1.2, the issue moved to another server.

Quake Wars support is needed. :)

ET & ET-Rcon support works great.
QW works but no luck with QW-Rcon.
Everytime I exit HLSW it crashes.
No big deal to me, I just wanted to let you know since its beta.

Here's a nub question.

Will it ever be possible to listen to mic's ingame, as no doubt most games will incorporate this.

Once again, apoligies for nub question but if that would be possible it would be brilliant.

The stats don't seem to be calculating correctly. After a while running everyone looks like they have about the same exact stats
