  1. Unfortunately I leave for Medical School in July and will have no time to continue work. EM4 is over a decade old and given the current state of the aging community, it really wasn't seen as worth it for me to invest what little free time I have left before I spend the next 4-8 years of my life learning the art/science of medicine. I really am sorry to disappoint. This is kind of why I stated in one of my posts that I don't normally believe in showing off pre-release content. I really hate for this to be another RCMP type thing, although that mod had a MUCH bigger following. It's really a shame, I had high hopes for this mod and really wanted to do it, but being the sole developer on the scripting end of things (Which is arguably the biggest and most complex part of the whole modification) I just didn't have the time to commit to bring it to market.
  2. Converting

    Unless someone has written an import script for the v3o format, no. v3o is not a standard format or widely used so not much else supports that format except zmodeler.
  3. Converting

    ZModeler can do it, but format conversions are not always perfect so you may get a distorted or deformed model after the conversion or on the way back to v3o.
  4. Interesting...if it continues to be an issue let me know and I'll initiate the conversation Lol, totally misread that post. Disregard
  5. Akamai NetSession Client

    Akamai I know is a big time CDN (Content Distribution Network) company. Essentially they rent server space to allow big websites (think eBay, Facebook, etc) to serve up files to users. Essentially these websites pay Akamai to have copies of their website/files on servers around the world so that when you visit their website it will load quickly (since the content is theoretically pulled from a server that is geographically close to you). After a tiny bit of research it appears that Akamai also allows companies to serve files via P2P (peer-to-peer), which NetSession facilitates. At some point you downloaded a program which uses this method of delivery. The program was probably small and it installed NetSession which then proceeded to download the actual program you wanted. The file was not server from a server, but from other people running NetSession. Once done, and if left running, NetSession then uses your idle bandwidth to further the network. When someone else downloads the program they get part of it from you "eating" your bandwidth. Theoretically NetSession should throttle back when you use the computer but it will always leave some over head. Long story short, remove it.
  6. Not quite dead yet. I thought I would share some information so as to explain the apparent lack of progress with this modification. I work near full-time in EMS, I volunteer teaching first aid and CPR in the community, and on top of all of that I've applied for Medical School and am in the middle of the application cycle. Work is resuming shortly on this mod. I hope to push and get a release for you ASAP, but know that I always put quality over the speed of the release. To all those who expressed interest in helping with this modification I apologize for not getting back to you. I've sent you all messages. To those currently interested in helping, shoot me a message. I'll get back to you ASAP and I won't let your messages get eaten by my inbox like the others! To the rest of you, thanks for your continued support and patience. This is no easy feat.
  7. ERROR with LAFireStation.script

    When posting script files, please don't throw them in a CODE box on the forum unless its reasonably short. 2000+ lines requires a LOT of scrolling. Use http://pastebin.com/ I found one thing: Line: 387 if(12.GetNumObjects() > 0) it's written 12.GetNumObjects() with a "one" when I'm almost positive you meant to put l2.GetNumObjects() with a lowercase "L". In text editor fonts, "1" and "l" look very similar. Since variables cannot start with a number the script freaked out. The only other thing I know causes that error is if you are missing a curly brace, which I don't think is the case here.
  8. File Packing/Unpacking Utility

    I will look into adding a GUI to this. Gotta see if I can find the project file.
  9. Buildings

    ...and a third of fourth part coming when I get the time to make it.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Right now my problem is finding time to make these videos. It's takes an awful lot of time to make and finding quiet time to do it has been a real challenge lately. As as to your feedback I tend to go right into it and proceed quickly because I don't want the videos to be too long. In reality, some of these tasks take over an hour. While I'd like to show you every single step, the videos would be too long. I personally can't watch a single video for over 45 minutes, and I don't think many others can. I've always just assumed that a user could control their own pace by pausing the video/rewinding as necessary. I try to show everything and usually skip over parts that are 100% repeats of what was previously done since most work is just repetitive. I personally feel that I don't prepare as much as I should and that my hinder the fluidity of the videos. I'm working on that but it adds to the amount of time I have to find to make these videos. My videos are not really meant to be "big picture". I like to focus on small tasks with the thought being that if you can do the little things, you can piece together a mod.
  11. How to fix siren bug?

    EOF refers to end of file. The script is reaching the end of file before it wants to. That means you're probably missing a bracket
  12. Is Logmein a virus before i get it

    No, it is used widely in the remote support world by businesses and for remote access. It's safe so long as you: 1. Download it from a known good source, like logmein.com...not from some random page or pop-up. If it's Logmein Rescue, which is often used by remote tech support, the download may come from that company's website, which is okay, so long as the company is reputable. If you don't know the company is reputable, then you shouldn't be granting them access to your PC. 2. You don't grant access to your computer to anyone you don't want in there. Remote access programs (if they are downloaded from a good source), are only as dangerous as you allow them to be. If you let some stranger into your PC, then its like letting someone sit at your PC IRL and work on it. If you wouldn't let an individual sit at your PC right now unattended, then I would not grant them access. Whether or not this whole thing is safe for you is dependent on the situation. Are you using logmein for yourself or to let a friend onto your PC? It's safe. Are you using logmein to let a reputable company help you with a support issue, (ie. A reputable software company asking you to install logmein so they can diagnose or fix a problem)? You're okay so long as the company is reputable. Is it some random company that you go this cheap piece of crap software from that never worked? Is it some random company that says they can make your PC faster or fix your OS problems? I'd be more suspicious here. Just use caution.
  13. The air counter is probably made using things that are only available in mission based scripts, meaning that you cannot use it in Freeplay/Multiplayer. You CAN, however, use a similar logic, you'll just have to find a way to display remaining air level a different way that will work in freeplay/multiplayer. You could do what the limited water supply script does and change the action icon depending on the person's current air level. Some assembly is required
  14. New Laptop

    Two help you we need two bits of information: 1. What is your budget? 2. Performance or Portability? You CAN'T have both, so pick one. While we can help you balance it, you can't have something that is Top tier performance with ultra portability, it just doesn't exist. A middle ground can be found, but the scale WILL tip in favor of one direction...which is it for you?
  15. Just a progress update. I've been busy with real world crap. just like most of us here, however I'm trying to get back into developing this mod. I've just finished the EMS station/Business Offices on the main map: Today I got back into finishing a hospital model that I started working on quite a while ago. I've managed to clean it up and am almost finished modeling an enterable ER! I really do want to get this mod done, and there is still A LOT of work to do. I'm usually very wary about allowing others into my projects since I'm such a stickler for quality, however, I feel that at the rate I'm going, I'll be done sometime by the year 2025 (*sarcasm, but seriously ). So, for the sake of actually making timely progress, I am opening this project up to anyone who might be interested in joining the team which currently consists of myself and one other person. If you are at all interested in helping, please send me a PM and we can talk about it. Thanks for the continued support guys despite the painfully slow progress! Even when I do find time to work on this, the progress is painfully slow, especially since this is a "from scratch" mod. As an example, I've clocked about a solid 6-7 hours on that hospital thus far.
