news of the week: after a week of working and testing, I am finally
proud to present to you Sabacc Online version 2.0! You
can find the new version of Sabacc Online at http://www.ehnet.org/sabacc/
and it has been added to the links section of the IO Report. Though
I should've done this update a long time ago, I'm glad I did it
now because I've had the opportunity to learn better techniques
in streamlining the code. For those interested, the updates include
BHG login support, using objects and classes instead of arrays
for the hand and the deck, values for cards 12-15 are now negative
like the rules state, betting limits are higher (half the hand
pot), hand pot cap is 500,000 and sabacc pot cap is 1,000,000.
Lots of other small things too...I've reduced the length of the
file to half (from 1606 lines to about 837) which should mean
quicker processing and more efficient handling of many users.
Although BHG support works, your credits will not be updated until
the new version of the BHG Roster is completed by Koral.
yet another new project! The IO Graphics Creation
Service, which is run by former IOA Keldorn. You can order
custom-made graphics for your EH website at http://www.kweeky.net/gcs/.
2 development is underway - IOA Leeson is working on the trailer
currently with Keldorn. IOAs Alex Foley and Turtle are working
on a site which you'll find familiar if you've read the Hawkeye
- that's right, VeriNEXT will be making an appearance once again
in Hawkeye II (there's your first clue as to the plot :P). Mutilator
and I will be working on some new tools for the Hawkeye Agent's
Datapad. Projected date of release of the Hawkeye II Qualification
Test is October 18.
EHNet news: Alex Foley has added a custom "MyBlock"
to the list of available blocks, as well as a weather.com block.
MyBlock is where you can create your own block with your own useful
news: The "You are not logged in" error message
experienced by people behind proxies when attempting to login
to any site on the EHNet login service has been fixed. If you
continue to have problems, please contact Turtle.
Hammer: Site of the Week
week's Site of the Week award goes to the ISD Vanguard site at http://vanguard.stardestroyer.org/.
Designed by COM-IOA Leeson (firstname.lastname@example.org),
it features nice PHP work and an interesting feature which I have
never seen on a TC web page, the Pilot Battle Tracker. Very nicely
