Scripts 4.6 Update 8 is now available.

I would like to thank Jerad Gray, Moonsense, Neijwiert and dblaney for their contributions to 4.6 Update 8 (If I missed anyone else who contributed to 4.6 Update 8, sorry)

Changes made since 4.6 Update 7:
Various bug fixes.
Updates to scripts written by Jerad Gray.
Add the ability to enable dynamic decals with a hud.ini entry.
Fix an issue with per-map lod stuff.
Fix so that display text associated with sounds will display.
Fix admin message popups in LAN mode.
Some SSGM logging fixes (I dont know the details or what it does or if you need to change anything in terms of your parsing of the logs)
Disable decals on projectiles.
Added weapon hold style N0 (14) which blocks the soldier's animation state controller from updating the soldier animations (except death).
Fix to prelit lighting on projectiles.
Introduced Get_Pathfind_Distance_Blocking. Get_Pathfind_Distance is now replaced by Get_Pathfind_Distance_Async and marked as obsolete. The original routine din't really use the start position as expected anyway (which is fixed now). Get_Pathfind_Distance_Blocking will return immediately with a result.
Added the ability to change the color of the sound text via hud.ini keywords.
Update to scripts written by The Unstoppable (TR) on Discord.

If you are running 4.6 Update 7 (or any earlier version) you will be automatically updated to 4.6 Update 8.

People wanting a full installer, a server download or a tools download can find them on the Tiberian Technologies website (www.tiberiantechnologies.org) in the downloads section. (note that the full installer will install 4.6 but when you run the game/updater/whatever it will update to 4.6 Update 8 automatically.

People who need DA will have to wait for a compatible version of DA to be released (which should be fairly simple for someone to do given what's changed in the new version)

There's one issue with this update. A person using Win98 had a black screen, could see text, playerlist, sound, but nothing about the game itself.

They ended up system restoring to get things back to normal.

Idk what her forum nick here is, but on rencorner.com it's mintshake(hasn't logged in in 3 years there).

I get along with people fine, so long as they aren't rejects who promised things that they couldn't
deliver on, or forum trolls who contribute nothing except to bloat the fragile egos of the same
rejects I despise.

It sounds like joke. Nobody uses Win98 nowadays.

Scripts 4.x has never supported Windows 9x/ME.
XP has always been the minimum requirement ever since the first Scripts 4.0 release.

And in fact we are considering dropping XP support as well in the near future.

In a previous release we improved the texture loader, when textures are still loading they appear black, I saw this just a few seconds ago on my SSD and it made me think of this. Normally you won't see it at all unless your SSD has a hiccup. But if his win98 is running a traditional HDD its very possible he just needed to wait a little longer for the textures to load in. (The game used to lock up while loading textures Saberhawk broke the texture loader back in 4.0 if I recall correctly, so you'd end up sitting on the loading screen longer).

I tried to get it to happen again so I should show the video of it, but the second attempt it loaded at normal speed, so here is a slowed down version so you can see what I mean:

In the stock game (before the texture loader was broken thus causing it to lock in the loading screen until all textures were loaded) the missing textures would have been the WW logo instead of black.

I had her login to our forum from that PC, it looks she's using XP.

Her game worked this whole time, until yesterday's update. So, the scripts had to of removed something the WinXP(not Win98) used.

If you guys are still planning to go ahead with the XP thing; I would like notice before you push them out. So, I can let people know to not update/turn off their updates from then on. Scratch that last, with 4.6 automatically updating on its own, I don't know how to proceed short of them firewalling/hosts the TT update server. If we get them to rollback/install an older .exe, it'll keep breaking their games.

Ask her to sit in game for like a minute, I suspect that beings the game doesn't lockup while loading on the loading screen anymore she just getting in game faster, if she waits the time the loading screen used to take I bet the textures come in.
