Re: Started Development :)

After reading this it appears a new version of BNT is in the works. Is this a correct assumption? Sadly, no. Blacknova Traders has been in 'hibernation' of late, and will likely not see a new release soon. The last released version is non-functional on current PHP as you've discovered. I have conti...

Blast from the past

After reading an article about a project reaching a million downloads, I stumbled across the tracker for downloads from SF for Blacknova Traders - dating all the way back to 2000! https://sourceforge.net/projects/blacknova/files/stats/timeline?dates=2000-11-06+to+2017-03-30 110k downloads! What an e...

Re: New Install

But it used to, way back when, list all of the games that were running as I recall. The links would update when the game was rebooted. Anyway that would be cool to set that up to run again. You are probably thinking of RedNova. It was a fork of BNT that included the server list. Later, my fork, TKI...

Re: New Install

Looks like you are missing the ? swordfish=password at the end of your scheduler call.

What happens if you visit (in a web browser):

Re: New Install

It will help if you specify your web hosting company, so that we can look through their support pages to get more information about which distribution they use (which will help identify the paths and the commands they have available): http://support.hostgator.com/articles/cpanel/what-do-i-put-for-th...

Re: New Install

Ok so I have the game up and running....one final problem though. The count-down restarts every time the screen refreshes. I don't think the cron job service is running correctly any ideas? Indeed, this means that the cronjob is not running. How are you editing the cron job? You should be doing som...

Re: Smart Mobile Device Question???

I've got an iPhone, and have no objection to 2FA.

I probably wouldn't use it if I had the option not to, but if not, would probably deal with it.

Re: Transferring money to planet

I try to transfer 3212123001 (leave 200 mill on planet) usually just transfers 2bill to planet, and leaves me with the rest. Sounds like an int limit on a variable, since those are (on a 32-bit machine) somewhere around 2 billion. That is one of the main benefits I'm finding with using static varia...

Re: Used to play this game a lot when I was really young

My brother and I managed to get the virtual hosts back up to find that the version of phpBB I have running here doesn't support PHP 7.x, so I thought I would downloaded the very latest core version of phpBB, you would think it would be compatible with PHP 7.x wouldn't you, but noooooo it also doesn...

Re: Tried sending a PM, but board wouldn't let me

As for the amount of players that we had in the last game I run (2014-09-11) had 161 ships, now some of those may of been invalid and multi accounts. The Wayback/Internet Archive shows at least a couple of times in 2014 where it was relatively low (~30 players): https://web.archive.org/web/*/http:/...
