All this discussion recently has made me want to give myself kind of a reality check and see how the game ACTUALLY used to feel. I keep pushing for the return of all this old crap, but it'd be interesting to see how I'd actually feel about it now. Anyone want to join me? Or at least does anyone know where I can get a copy of the old version so I can just fly around and ****?

How do you get Altitude to skip the update checking again?

you have to change your biplanes.cfg in your altitude folder

try this one
replace what's in your biplanes.cfg with:

#Sun May 04 23:35:35 CDT 2008
classpath=C\:\\Program Files\\Altitude\\Master.jar;C\:\\Program Files\\Altitude\\Biplanes.jar;C\:\\Program Files\\Altitude\\BiplanesMedia.jar;C\:\\Program Files\\Altitude\\jogl.jar;
resourceFile=resource.cfg
pathRemote=http\://altitude.al.funpic.de/res/
run=Game.GameMain
minJava=1.4
update=Update

Here's a link btw:

EDIT: "This application has unexpectedly quit" error not letting me install. Anyone else having this problem? :(

I hate how some sound effects don't work and neither does my backspace key.

it doesnt work properly with java 1.5 (dunno about 1.6) but it works fine with 1.4

and btw: pathRemote=http\://altitude.al.funpic.de/res/ <- i can not guarantee that it will be available, the account on funpic.de might get deleted any time

Simpler solution:

skipUpdate=true

Manual Server IP entry.

Bunch of other Alt movies on there too, kind of fun to check them out. :)


EDIT: This one is actually kind of touching in a weird way.

Oh man the memories. :( So many great maps. I hope we can get some of them back up. I loved that one city map a lot.

Translation: Lam, could you please release the map converter so that we can play cokane.

Also, why isn't snowking in those videos, that was one good map imo.

Great idea. I don't think I have it on my hard drive though. I deleted a ton of maps back when Altitude first went away.

Aw, you win (234 here). Mostly crap though, though there are some good ones like papercut2, and the classic, mind****.

I don't remember mind****, but I remember much frustration and fun when playing feudalism.

Also cokane. Now that we have this parallax stuff, I bet we could make the tears actually fall down his face.
