Understated Ur-Drakon The Almighty Doer of Stuff Posted August 13, 2020 Share Posted August 13, 2020 BoE is Free Open Source Software and can be freely modified and distributed under GNU GPL. I've patched my copy of legacy BoE with the Thrown Missiles fix described at http://spiderwebforums.ipbhost.com/topic/25797-archery-vs-item-lore/ and will distribute it. This Intel Mac version is in the forum header: http://redsaurus.net/boe/BoE10.7+301212.zip Assuming this version works well, could this please be patched for the Thrown Missiles fix? I don't want to clutter up OpenBoE.com with non-experimental stuff, but I did buy BladesOfExile.com and BladesOfExile.net a couple months ago. I'd like to use one of those for more general Exile stuff, including hosting Thrown Missile-patched legacy versions, links to Trilogy downloads, and instructions for installing the software that allows the series to run on x64 Windows systems. I'd also like the MacOS graphics files extracted from the Mac BoE version, for inclusion with the legacy Windows download from my site. I'd like to make the darker MacOS graphics the default, while having copies of the Mac and Windows graphics sets in two subdirectories for easy copy-paste to match any given scenario or preference. Could someone assist me with this, please? The legacy release and the open-source release can be found here: http://spiderwebsoftware.com/productsOld.html (What I mean about the graphics subdirectories is this: Graphics are stored in BLADEXIL/BLADEDIT/ by default. I would include two subdirectories, BLADEXIL/BLADEDIT/LightGraphics/ and /BLADEXILE/BLADEDIT/DarkGraphics/ which would have the complete sets. Then you just open one up, copy the contents, and paste them over the files in BLADEXIL/BLADEDIT/ , which I hope will be easy to understand.) The PowerPC version link in the header is dead. Would the original legacy MacOS version run on PowerPC Macs easily, perhaps with a simple compatibility layer or something? I don't know how it works. Which would be the preferable domain to use for a BoE hub: BladesOfExile.com or BladesOfExile.net? i don't know the standards. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
