Expect a lot more from me on the way too including more subgames including some that are not school friendly (included in a different version) and I am planning on building D.

Unfortunately, unlike quake, sandbox doesn't support use of archives like zip and pk3 to store contents. while installation is pretty much just a 'create new directory here named sandbox' and placing the zip in there, following by a 'right click.... extract contents here'. Or so I would assume. I also assume you're a windows guy, so double click the (clickheretostart) file, and not the executable binary in /bin, or else you WILL get errors. If it'll also help, instead of double clicking the 'click here to start' file, right click it, and make a shortcut of it on the desktop. it'll save you a fair amount of effort in the future when you decide to try the game again.

Hopefully that was quite insightful, and will help a few newbies in the future :)

I assume you're a windows user who didn't install any decent drivers and as such lacks any OpenGL extensions due to M$'s horrid support for it. Try one of the above links to update them and TRY AGAIN. Also if it's about output messages like 'cannot find core textures' execute the batch named (clickheretostart) not the exe in /bin.

Can you be a little more descriptive? What is the driver error? Have you tried updating your drivers? Take care.

If you think the release is looking cool now, just wait till you see the 2.1 release, and in fact, hear it. There's lots of new textures. and I was sure to check ascertain they had had normal, bump and glow maps in most cases. so expect some nice looking stuff to. As most of you probably already saw in the screenshots. There's some nice looking WiP stuff in the works.

Now to answer a few questions.

Fristly, contacting a masterserver ISN'T disabled. It merely points to kids.platinumarts.net. and as a masterserver doesn't run there, it returns whatever is considered the 404 page, so you'll see a lot of html stuff. if you know of a valid master server, you can use -m to overwrite it.

Secondly, the ports are 28785 and 28786 UDP. They must both be forwarded. from my knowledge and lack of understanding of the code. One port is used to communicate with the master server, the other is for the connections. unfortunately unless you forward those ports to your router. you'll only be able to participate on servers hosted on your local area network, by using /lanconnect. /connect can be used if you know the appropriate address/domain name eg /connect moddb.com or /connect 74.53.6.75, they're both moddb.com btw, and take note than moddb DOES NOT host a server for PAS.

thirdly. Other than a webserver, there's pretty much no servers in operation. I do sometimes activate mine, but that's usually so I can test out some stuff with calimer and show him some editing tricks ;)

This is neat. If you guys keep up development, this can be used for other purposes such as development of structures and vehicles, simulations of certain scenes, and scientific studies.
