Title: Noobs4Boobs comeback
Post by: SmellyCakes on April 12, 2017, 05:04:21 am
I miss the shit out of this game and have been trying to find the old mod called Noobs4Boobs. I've tried contacting some people via facebook who use to run it, but I don't think it'll lead to anything. The two main people in charge from back in the day are mia.

It's a long shot, but I was wondering if any people had the old N4B mod. I want to start up a server again.

De_chocolate has the N4B config files... or at least had in 2014.

I sent him a pm and link to this thread via wwolves.com forums. Let's see.

Here's De_Chocolate's quote from 2014. Discussion was with MNI_Suoma about BR people setting up their own Copy-N4B server and considering setting up a real one in EU:

Weird. I remember I used to have Aradan's e-mail. Had to discuss N4B server-side stuff... but now that I checked it - can't find any.
I do have Cruleman's e-mail though. But I doubt it's still up and alive. Still, will try another day.

I do have the N4B files. But...
As I said to Snoogy, even though when long time ago I asked Jarvis once again if we can share N4B files... He said that we do not have to ask anymore any of the old admins about it. We can decide on our own...

I still will think twice... or even more... about giving those to BR people.

Also, he mentioned you. Told him about you and these forums.

Awesome. This is a good news. Cruleman got back to my via facebook this morning. He said he may still have them. But if someone else has them as well that would great!

Would I pay be able to host my own N4B server on the game anymore? I'd like to and have no issues paying for one or hosting it myself.

Maybe get in contact with either Groentjuh or JmZ. Maybe they can host it for you so you have experienced server admins and you can even support them! :-)

That would be fine with me. Calling Groentjuh or JMZ!

Just be aware that the old files will be heavily outdated and you may have various issues by default.
You'll either need to distribute your pack to anyone that wants to play or make adjustments to match the newest versions.
Ideally you'd make it an official mod that can be added to XR so everyone has it automatically available together with the added bonus of client- & server-side distribution.

Alternatively, you could also recreate the mod if anyone knows what was different.



If you need help with any of those, how ever you wish to do it, there are a variety of people you can contact. (Daemon, Trigardon, drk, Groentjuh, and me are the most likely candidates for help.)

Don't forget that you have to update it up to 1.3. It's not easy if you made a lot of changes in your server.

Post by: SmellyCakes on April 13, 2017, 06:02:53 pm
Yes, it might entail work that is over my head. I'd do my best to learn and my buddy G=lock knows more about it than I do. The initial hurdle will be getting the files so I can look into what was actually modded.

 :lol: They are both dangerous fellas. Be careful!  :lol:

Not as dangerous as Trigardon or drk though!

Greetings.

I've indeed received a message from Nanaa via forums.

Additional information in next message.

*Fixed*.

Resurrected from the grave (my old hard drive).
Still working on Savage SFE clients - tested on a new, fresh SFE standalone client and an old one I've used years ago.

If anyone would like to play with it or is willing to adapt it to XR:

So, is there an update on this?

Have you converted it to 1.3?
Have you contacted Groent/Jmz, or made other server plans?
Do you need any assistance from the XR team?

Any news about this? I miss this server so much! I'm from the Philippines and I used to stay up until 8am in the morning just to play with you guys! I used to be a member of Church of Jarvis. I met the guy who opened my mind to conspiracies here. He was one of the best players here, and I remember MNI-Uruk Hai banning him because he admitted to using some hack that would make aiming easier. I wonder how Uruk Hai is, he was already around 48 years old years ago. I also remember making friends, like the Traniastic Killer. I wonder where he is now. You guys were my childhood friends! Sorry, I forgot the username that I went by on this game. I also remembered COJ-BigDick.What a funny guy! Haha!

I've looked through the files and find up to a few adjustments to the tempo. Ammunition. Speed. And building healing does not make much difference to the standard game. But I can not remember the server of n4b what was different there. Too long ago. Can someone give a summary of what the difference was.
Mad jumps (high), pretty much inf. stam and mana, workers built faster (i think so), shock was also really OP, but can't remember how it worked tho.
I think weapons range was longer as well, as well fireball didn't have the "aim" choice, just spamm it like a madman.

Hello,

I also used to play this server back in the day (played under "Viewer"), and I recall playing with OP Smellycakes, Glock, De_Chocolate, SocialSecurity, Jarvis, Negromanus, COJ-Arenos, etc..

It would be great if this mod ever came back! I've been looking forward to it for years, as well!

To add to this:
- Shamans were also able to throw the human chaplain potions
- Chaplains were also able to use the beast shaman shield ray
- Summoners were able to sprint and jump (not sure if this is also the case in the original version, if so the jump was at least increased in height)
- Summoner mana cost was decreased -> with full bar they could do two summoner strikes
- Regular tower strength was increased: the arrows hit with the power of a ballista
- Behemoths were equipped with three items: mist shroud, storm shield and sixth sense
- On exiting a ballista or catapult, I believe humans would not be a nomad but a legionnaire
- I believe all items (and maybe some/all weapons) were available for both humans and beasts at the start of the game

I will continue to think about this for a while and post if I remember anything else. In the meantime, if there is anything I can do, please let me know and I will try to help with the fullest of my (granted, limited) abilities!  :)

Thank you for trying to ressurect Noobs4Boobs!

"You are a legend!"

Just say the word if you want to test it with/against another player, I'd be more than happy to volunteer. :)

Well done, that certainly took a lot of effort.
Back when I asked for information, I barely got any and abandoned the idea of recreating this.

Today someone voted for a different mod on this server and we couldn't go back to N4B. What is the mod name to call it?  :?


Title: Re: Noobs4Boobs comeback
Post by: Trigardon on March 31, 2019, 03:56:19 am
Vote for xr. Is currently written on Xr standard because it is not yet integrated into Xr. Or vote for dm or footy map and then again on a standard map. I put on n4b again

Why is it written on XR standard in the first place? :?

Hey all! Its good to see some familiar names working on this. I've been searching for n4b related posts every now and then but I didnt expect to find this here. Is the server up and playable? I cant access my computer right now so I cant check it myself

I miss the times too, the memory is so faded I was supprised to see my name mentioned here haha. Had to make a account just to be able to reply.

Again, its nice to see people here. Especially you choco. I tried to find your email long time ago but I had lost it.

Just randomly checked Newerth, and was wondering why this thread is still alive in 2019.

I'm still alive, can pm for e-mail exchange or something else.
