Meteor FE (Front End) replaces the Meteor Mod Manager for Meteor 1 and the Meteor 2 Manager applications.

FE is a single application created using C# Express. It handles all Meteor games and will be updated for each new version. It will be capable of managing mods as well as launching single and multiplayer games with a number of options.

The first version of FE will be released in December 2006 to support support Meteor 1 v1.32 and Meteor 2 v1.3.

So basically this is going to be both M managers smushed into one and some added features. Will it include a faster load?

Yes it will be a mod manager and game launcher for all of the Meteor games. As it may also do Escape 2 and Rod etc in the future perhaps I should rename it to the jbgames Game Manager or something?

I really an open to ideas on the name so suggestions are more than welcome.

The application will be a standalone native app, ie it will not be written in dot net as previosly suggested and it should not require any DLLs.

As for load speed I am not sure if that refers to the speed of the launcher loading or the actual games (namely M2).

The launcher will be released alongside Meteor 2 v1.3 which me and mantis are testing and working on. I am hoping to get this out before Christmas but it depends if we can nail all of the bigs before then. It is proving to be far more stable than the current version of the game.

I mean the game loading. I glad to hear of a definet release date of the next m2. Why don't you just call it Meteor Mangager? Short and simple.

lol, let him stick to the name if he already has chosen it. I personally change the name if I rewrite the whole thing =D Well I like 'MeteorFE' as the name :p

What comes to M2 v1.3 there are those script commands that I would so like to be put in =D :
------
void OnObjectTypeDie(int ObjectId, int KillerObjectId);

void SC_SetOverwrittenName(int ObjectId, char NewName);
char SC_GetOverwrittenName(int ObjectId);
-----
Also I would like to know if arrays work ;)

if FE will be able to launch E2 and ROD then the name Meteor FE really sounds a bit silly

ideas for name:
- JbS Front End
- JbS Launcher
- JbS Game Manager

I'd like to have it too since i got problems with m1 mod mgr (higher than 1.0 (the only that works for me)) and m2 mgr. I cant start these apps. FE would solve this problem (no required dlls, ..)

EDIT: Is FE abandoned or what?
