|10/11/2011 09:39:52 Hosting Pluto's Battle Simulator|
Pluto is not going to be renewing his website that hosts his Weewar battle simulator and says that I/we can host it elsewhere. Does anyone else want to host it? Did anyone happen to save the Flash file? I have the source code and can recompile it if necessary.
UPDATE: The new location for Pluto's Battle Simulator is kindly hosted by Daithi at http://pbs.weewarspy.co.uk/. Please update your bookmarks accordingly.
Edited by Darkbee: Added link to updated Battle sim location as suggested by McMonster.

|Awesome! Daithi? Pretty please?|

|Thanks Ryan. How do you save a flash file? Anyway, first two names coming to my mind for hosting are also Daithi and Mr Bee. Daithi is on holiday so it might take a few days for him to respond to this. If we need to buy a new website I would be happy to chip in a few £...|

|I don't mind hosting it but I'll have to see how much bandwidth it starts using up. I have plenty available right now but we'll see. I may even have the flash file somewhere... I'll get back to you on that.|

I'll host it if you want, someone send me the source files and I'll pop it up as soon as I can.
It would be easier for me to host the compiled flash object and a page but I can probably work from source if I have to.

|hey daithi, i'm out of town. i'll send it to you next week|
|14/11/2011 18:55:35 Re:Hosting Pluto's Battle Simulator|
|I had a brief look and I couldn't find it. I'm pretty sure I have the compiled file somewhere though.|

|Temporary internet files maybe or anyone who saved the page but it's doesn't matter, i only just got back myself. There's a pile of stuff work phoned me about in Toronto that I couldn't be bothered to fix waiting to be sorted so I'll be busy with this week. Once I get the files it won't take long for me get it online.|

|http://pbs.weewarspy.co.uk/ for Pluto's simulator. I'm still messing with the page to make it as similar to the original as possible and remove the blog links and things. It appears to be working as it did on Pluto's site though, so update your links.|

Thanks for putting this up Daithi.
As Joni Mitchell sang, don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got til it's gone?

|you even improved the bonus from different directions calculator - or I never noticed the old sim would differ between attack directions. good job sir!|
|23/11/2011 06:45:33 Re:Hosting Pluto's Battle Simulator|
|I didn't improve anything, the flash is whatever Darkbee sent me. I assumed it was always like that.|
|23/11/2011 13:57:41 Re:Hosting Pluto's Battle Simulator|
|There were no modifications to the Battle Simulator. It was just as it was before the domain went down.|

|Thank you guys!|

Thank you very much for setting this up again, guys!
Maybe this thread should be marked as "sticky" (on top)? This is still the best battle simulator as far as I know, so it should be easy to find for beginners in my opinion.
