I tried to create a server with zero-guidance weapons.

I did fresh installs of both full versions 1.0.1 and 1.5.0 I then applied the 1.5.9 update to 1.5.0.

I then deliberately copied all 1.0.1 folders over the top of the 1.5.9 folders. I only copied the folders: scores, sound, objects, maps, Docs, entities, Addons, and art. I did NOT copy the root files (.cfg files, .exe files, etc.).

I then started this new 1.5.9 server and it seemed to come up and run ok.

BUT when I started up my un-adulterated 1.5.9 version of Tread Marks, I could not see the server that I had just launched. That is, I could not join the game because it was not visible on the master server.

I confirmed that the master server IP address was OK (216.101.212.117). I even brought up a 1.0.1 game to see if I could see my 1.5.9 server there, but it was not.

Well, it was worth a try. Any advice?

Yeah - don't do it that way. Just lower the friction and fix the guidance, and that's as close to 1.0.1 as you can get.

Swisher, all I did was take out the guidance lines in the entities\projectiles folders for the weapons I wanted to "revert" back to 1.0.1. Well, first I created an alternate AddOns folder to put them in-guideAddOns. Then, when I want to use them, I rename it AddOns so it uses those projectile entities instead of the guided ones. I like the friction the way it is tho. Hope this helps.

just my $0.02: i appreciate having a "Classic TM" server, regardless of the camera situation.

Only copy the following dirs:
Entities/Projectiles
Entities/TankGod

If you want to eliminate the new maps copy:
Maps

DO NOT copy:
Docs
Music

These files cannot transfer between the two version. Docs contains version specific info and will cause the game NOT to run. The music format has changed so don't copy that folder...it won't crash the game but you will get no music.

All other folders you "can" copy but you have no "need" to copy.
