The BlackIntel is pleased to announce that after instating Goztow as mod we have further improved or relations with The KOSs2 and now have an official partnership.
This means that The KOSs2 server will from now be running an altered version of BlackIntel mods and that they will use the nickname previously used by BlackIntel 3, a0000000c.

Note: Its not a merge. BlackIntel mods will not automatically become part of the Koss2 clan or anything like that. The BackIntel admins on the other hand will become a mod on The KOSs2 server.

Since Dealman1 is never around anymore we've decided to get him oof the moderator list. There is no use for him being a mod if he doesn't play renegade anymore, and doesn't show up in irc or on the website. We think it's a pitty that he stopped playing renegade because he was rather good at it ;).

I hope we'll see him somtime on irc or such.

Host move (again) and dedicated server.

Posted on 14 Oct 2006 by EvilWhiteDragon
As you can see we moved the site to its final place today. So no more bad free hosts as it is now run from our own machine. This machine is also running BlackIntel1 and BlackIntel2. Depending on the load we might change some things to the configuration, so we are closely watching the server behaveour at this time.

A nice peak at the server usage:
bandwidth usage /><br /><br />At the moment the picture was made there where 14 players in BI1 and 1 player in BI2. <!-- no full story--></div>

Gozy, AKA goztow, has become a mod on our server

Posted on 08 Oct 2006 by EvilWhiteDragon
Today Gozy let us know that he wanted to become moderator on our server, and normally we would ignore those kind of requests, we decided otherwise. This because we felt like Gozy is someone with a reasonable invluence in the renegade community, and he is a good friend of us.

Sayownded got banned

Posted on 03 Oct 2006 by EvilWhiteDragon
Today we banned Sayownded because of cheating. We show no remore for anyone caught cheating. He is now banned from all off our servers. He was very very sneaky using his cheats, so we hadn't spotted this immedietly.

Some more updates

Posted on 27 Sep 2006 by StealthEye
Recently I've been doing some "simple" c++ coding again, after doing a lot of ASM work. I decided to update some stuff relating the messaging system. Be sure to have a recent version of scripts.dll installed client side (>2.6 iirc), then you will not see the "Host: " prefix before each message, and the messages will be colored according to the message type (error, success, etc). Also the internal workings are much improved so developement will be faster and easier.

I added logging for moderator and user commands which could be abused. Now it is easy to see when a user abuses something, or even if a moderator would, which I hope will never happen. It's good to have some logging to keep track of what happens though. Another fix is done to the vehicle ownership, which caused a crash in some rare situations.

I fixed a bug to the !smp command to make it work in LAN/GSA mode too, and fixed a bug to the !tc command. I have also removed the (never even used) vban and cvban commands.

Today's build should be applied to the servers the next time they restart.

We have removed Dave4989 from the moderator list since he appearently is too busy with his own community. We're sorry we had to do it this way, but we never see him on irc anymore, while he was there like always.
He has been and good mod though, and I hope that he will continiue to visit the site and our forums.

BHS partnership and rules page

Posted on 24 Sep 2006 by StealthEye
First of all, we should have posted this earlier, sorry for that.

BHS and BI have agreed on some kind of partnership. Basically both will still exist, but the BlackIntel members will also be part of BHS. We will be sharing knowledge and code for example, and will not fix the same bugs/do the same stuff, which would be useless. ;)
BlackIntel will still exist as server hosting and serverside modding team, but most fixes and improvements will probably be released though BHS, because there will be a greater audience, so more people would benefit.
See also the Announcing: Blackhand Studios / BlackIntel Partnership Agreement topic on renforums.

We have also added a new page with the server rules and moderator guidelines.

We are also really close to start using the next version of our scripts.dll, it will have some nice improvements to the command replies, and has several design limitations solved. It will be updated the next time the server restarts, which we preferably do when it's empty.
Then also will our new moderators have their ingame moderator status. I have finally made the moderators configurable, so they can be changed without having to rebuild the scripts.dll and restart the server. ;)

Mod future and Mod info updated

Posted on 24 Sep 2006 by EvilWhiteDragon
Today I updated the mod info and mod future page to better reflect our plans for the future and the things that we currently have on our server.

Website Problems.

Posted on 14 Sep 2006 by EvilWhiteDragon
We're currently experiencing some problems with our forum, and we are low on diskspace so in oder to fix it we needed to temporarily remove the movies. As soon everything is fixed we will update this newspost.

We moved to a new host as you can see, and hope this will atleast solve the frequency of our site being not reachable. We've fixed the forums too so you can post again ;)
