Well, while waiting for you to re-get your hands on the working source (is there an eta for that?), I suppose I can ask something else. I have this issue where FLServer crashes on me whenever a player leaves (char select screen/logout), which is strange because it happened even before I started tinkering with FLHook's source. I got around it by commenting out this line:


from HkInit.cpp. However, this of course causes me to lose the server.dll hooks, which is kind of a bummer. Furthermore, the hooks themselves do work (for example, putting a ConPrint in ShipDestroyed reliably showed when ships were removed); this means that the addresses probably aren't getting messed up. What's especially odd is that the precompiled 1.5.5 FLHook.dll doesn't give me these issues. I was wondering if you ran into a similar problem (crashing on logout) and might have some insight on the issue.

Edit: so I went and registered at the FL Coder's forum, but didn't think to read the How To Register instructions until afterwards (specifically, I left the signature field blank). Sigh.

w0dk4, in case you don't read that forum often, I posted my simple solution to allow carriers to ferry people between systems (same link). The same concept can also be used to simulate point-to-point hyperspace travel, though if you try to do anything sophisticated you face the wrath of the million special cases (the killer for me was deciding on a protocol for where players should respawn after death).
