HUD4 v1.11 updated version posted to the appropriate section. My XMas present to the Pooners' community. Merry end of year to each of you!*

I mentioned this in another forum, but I figured I would post it here to so that Gunny will see it more quickly...I think the wrong file may have been posted as the HUD-4 update. When I downloaded it, I did not see any changes, and when I checked the zip file, none of the archived files have dates later than Nov. 24. So either I clicked the wrong link by accident (which is certainly possible, but I can't find any other links) or the wrong file got uploaded. I figured I should let Gunny know. :)

You have the correct files, but for a reason I'll dig, database date didn't change. As for the BOL issue, it seems to be a GE issue. Maybe the same for ASROC.

It was not just the database date but the files themselves in the zipped archive had Nov. 24 listed as the latest date they were modified. That's what made me think it was the wrong archive...if you've updated the database, the files should be listing December something as the last date they were modified, shouldn't they? And you mentioned that the CVN 80 has been added...but it's not in the database I unzipped. All this makes me think I somehow got the wrong archive. It still may just be something I did wrong somehow, but I would double-check the files, just to be on the safe side.

Would you then recommend sticking with the previous version (3.10.1a right?) for stability? Is there that much difference between the official latest and the beta?

-And to revert to the latest official, I just 'update' it through the launcher right?

Thanks for answering my questions.

 

My experience has been that the betas run fine. I have not run into any major difficulties. Once in a great while, there will be a freeze or a crash, but it simply does not happen very often.

 

Of course, I may not be the best person to ask. I remember the "bad old days" of H2, where the game was virtually unplayable, at least on my system. Compared to that, any issues that exist with H3/ANW 3.11 and the HUD-4 database seem pretty trivial.

 

I would say the biggest challenge with H3/ANW is that the HUD-4 database is only about 98% perfect. A few weapons don't work right (ASROC, etc.). A number of platforms have the wrong descriptive text. Of course, a lot of these issues are hard to spot because they are, relatively speaking, few and far between. But I try not to get worked up about them. When I find them, it is annoying, of course, but I just report them to Gunny (the database editor) and he takes care of them as quickly as he can.

Okay, I was about to ask if that had happened to anyone else. So, good, I'm not crazy. (Okay, maybe I am crazy, but that's a different issue.)

 

This has happened before. It seems unlikely that Gunny sent the wrong .zip file (although I suppose it is possible), but I don't know why the website software would restore the older version of the file that way.

 

Perhaps uploading the revised database as an entirely new download file will fix the problem?

Please don't, Brad has uploaded umpteen versions of the HCDB to a single entry. If someone if having problems let us know, don't just create more downloads entries.
