2014-05-21 v1.591
- Fixed a critical problem with unregistered users being unable to sign in (server messages changed and broke GH)
- Fixed a problem with duplicate messages being displayed when you pushed F1 or F2
- Add tooltips for status messages AFK = Away From Keyboard HW = Hedgewars
- Skip frontend is no longer deleted on exit

Details of critical issue:
Unregistered/expired nicks have been unable to login to GH ever since gtanet updated their IRC server software. I'm not sure exactly when they did that.

GH 1.59 looked for "Your nick isn't registered" to determine on connection if it needs to register nick but the server now sends "<nick> isn't registered". So now GH 1.591 looks for "*isn't registered*".

After GH 1.59 successfully registers a nick, it expected "Password accepted" but the server stopped sending that on first registration attempt. It now sends "registered under", so 1.591 looks for that.

IRC server changed IP, so this is just a quick update to fix that.

2019-08-28 v1.598
- IRC server and port downloaded from http://gtamp.com/server.txt
- Default IRC server changed from 82.192.76.195 8067 to irc.gtanet.com 6667
- Added custom port to /server command. Example: /server irc.gtanet.com 6667
- Changed default URL colour from blue to red (only applies if you have no existing GH settings in registry)

Is the port still the same, Sektor? I can't connect all of a sudden.

Port changed from 8067 to 6667 last month. The main reason I was using 8067 is because 6667 is blocked by some software/firewalls by default but irc.gtanet.com seems to have disabled 8067, so I had to go back to the default IRC port.

Big ups to Sektor for keeping this going.

I haven't been on in maybe 10 years?

I used to play a lot with Wario and DAFE. I know we've all had eventful lives but if y'all are still alive. Shoot me a message on GH or on here. Let's play!

Hi, Sektor. Are you planning to release an update? Any ideas for improving the multiplayer?

It's just that there have been no updates for a long time, I would like to know the status of the multiplayer. Maybe someone else will be interested in it.

It's Sektor not Sector. I haven't worked on GH in a long time. I have many ideas but I rarely play GTA2.

Yes, your nickname sounds like "Sector", and is perceived the same ;)

But sorry, for a typo. Fixd it.

You don't need to play a game to develop. The person either plays the game or creates it.

If not a secret, what would you like to add to the multiplayer?

Most are listed here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2

12 years later and most of those ideas never happened but I’m still alive and healthy, so however unlikely, there’s some hope.

Priority should be making it easier to play, so no manual port forwarding required. After that should be finding a way to hide lag.
