A ... "not-so-kind" individual decided to exploit my generosity by uploading malicious scripts into the Ghost Skies server. (They uploaded them through the avatar upload on our old forum) That caused all kinds of havok with the Ghost Skies website and server, and took several months to fix. But now everything is secure, and Ghost Skies is back!

Unfortunately, we had to wipe our database tables clean. So all accounts and stats were lost. So that requires everyone to sign up to the website AND the forum once again. (We had to purchase a new, secure forum)

"Legends" (Full Difficulty) and "Pyro" (Relaxed settings) competition both begin again on July 21st! Hope to see you there!

Will there be a 1 vs 1 ladder?

Also, it would be a good suggestion to have all participants alter their netmessages.properties file to show name of pilot setting off the lag messages. This way, those pilots can be helped with their faulty connections and it will show in all tracks.

Looking at your suggested speed check settings, 5 secs, 5% is a lifetime for cable connects. I suggest 3secs, 3% minimum.

2 secs, 2% for 1 vs 1 when both are DSL or better players, along with limiting server bandwidth and client to 28.8 or 14.4.

Just suggestions on my part, I'll read the rules further tomorrow, maybe some of that is in there already.

Good luck with this cycle.

I'll crank up the 1v1 ladder pretty soon. Last time I ran it opposite of the team ladders. There wasn't much interest, but that was probably because I wasn't around to promote the heck out of it.

Maybe I could start them all at the same time?

hmmm

Sure, why not? I've got a hankering to compete again, but knowing what I know http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif, I've yet to find a squadron that meets my needs.

I was even contemplating RedDeth's attempt at the 26AC, if you can believe that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif However, I feel that he has met with some resistance from former (current?) members.

I'll have to look BBloke up and ressurrect my new squadron idea, I guess. It's really the only way to be sure who is flying with me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Let me know if I can help out any way. I like to get new teams started in the league. The more activity we have, the more competitive and fun the league is!

Will do. One other quick question, will this cycle be V4.05 or V4.06? With the possible "re-learning" looming on the horizon for V4.06, I just wanted to prepare properly.

Also, I'll probably need to actually GET V4.05, too. I'm still hanging with V4.04m. Doh.

This is excellent news.

Just like to add my opinion on this for all you guys who are maybe thinking about it and have not made your mind up on it yet.

Deadeyes joined it for the first time in the last cycle and it was great fun all around. Not only did it help to improve our teamwork but we got to meet loads of nice guys from other squads and get some meaningful matches on a regular basis.

I recomend you checking it out, guys are always happy to help out and you can arrange freindly matches before the whole thing starts.
