Had a quick run

All is good Smile XP SP3.

Only question is whether the firewall entry is or can be be cleaned up on close?
I hope the release team have a look at this and the other good games in the development test forum. I think if we can improve the official gaming offerings it will attract even more first time users who will then move onto the platform. Oh and will encourage open source gaming.

As always, top job;)

Firewall

Yeah, firewall entry is removed on exit. Or it should be. Was it not?

Thanks. And thanks for testing Smile

EDIT: Auto firewall feature is admin only though.

I checked and the firewall

I checked and the firewall entry was not removed. I also noticed that the WinSCP Portable entry wasn't removed and considering it's an official app maintained by John T. Haller I'm not sure whether the current setup includes firewall cleaning. Anyone know?

Working here

But could you check a couple of things?

Sorry for the obvious question but, you are using "Other\Source\ezQuakePortable.ini" in the root directory to enable the feature?

Also, you have to close then re-open the firewall control panel to check as it doesn't refresh itself...

  • Open firewall control panel. Check ezQuake isn't there. (EDIT: Remove it if it is). Close control panel.
  • Launch ezQuake. Open firewall control panel. Check ezQuake *is* there. Close control panel.
  • Exit ezQuake.
  • Open firewall control panel. Check ezQuake isn't there.

Still not happening?

EDIT: I can't speak for WinSCP as this is a "custom" feature!

You shouldn't feel it's an obvious question otherwise I'm twice the fool Blum I wasn't using it. I guess I need to start looking at the those extra options INIs as I've made the same mistake in the past.

Anyway working as you'd expect. It's there during the game and removed on close.

Thanks : )

Just want to say thanks for this. I've been playing this on and off for a couple weeks now and have to say I'm impressed. I never played the original Quake but am almost thankful I didn't otherwise I would have lost way too much time to this killer game.

Thanks Smile
