I'd like to request an update so that clients receive objective updates, co-op maps would love you guys for it.

As previously posted 4.1 is the last version of scripts.dll for Renegade, all future versions will break compatibility and be designed for use in separate W3D games

Ah I figured adding in 3 network messages that could call:
Commands->Set_Objective_HUD_Info_Position
Commands->Set_Objective_Status
Commands->Add_Objective
client side to be fairly simple when you had the code for (name of whatever file is equivalent to bhs.dll in 4.0).

All I did in ECW was call commands client side through shaders.dll lol, although that was for the "Commands->Set_HUD_Help_Text" but that's a useful feature too that I wish 4.X had.

I think the part that he is saying isn't simple is allowing that to be sent over the network, but I could be wrong.

Ah, figured you guys could just recycle the network code you used to set client side rain, and an int for the string id, and combined the other 3 float parameters into a vector3 on the client end, then just call the Commands->Set_HUD_Help_Text. But yeah I suppose I'm missing something, I'll rig it up to work through shaders again I guess.
