The newest Pbterm is out. 

Yes 1.7 in on the net for your enjoyment!

Lots of new features included in this version but the most eye striking is the new graphics. Most of you have seen the new graphics but few of you have seen them like this. They ZOOM now. You can zoom in and have them 50% bigger then they were before, or you can keep them the same size they were in the old version. A lot of you have formed an opinion about the new graphics, a bad opinion. But that is because you received a crippled(testing) version. I urge you to ahead and try this new version.

Some of the graphics on the aliase buttons have also been improved. Looks Snappy!

Notes have been enhanced with this version. The cursor now defaults to the top of the note when replying with a Reply Separator making it easier to read replies.

Plans are now green (Thanks RM!!) which makes talking with teamies easier. <–My personal favorite feature!

Wizes are also green, but I suppose only admins care about that.

You now have the option to clear the main chat window. Hmm that would be good to use if hubby is looking over the shoulder <SMIRK> But I suppose I would be one of the few that would need it for THAT reason. OH get your minds out of the gutter already! 🙂

The center click option is also new. You can turn off Click-Centering(which means when you double click on a square it will not center.)

Locators now have their own place in the menu bar. How convenient.

The title bar now contains some very important information. It tells you which server you are logged onto as well as what weapon you are holding in your right hand. Hey and guess what? It actually shows you the exact amount of money you have. Even if it is over $99999. <People with that much money should be shot I’m thinkin> Great new features of you ask me!

And yes, the moment you have all waited for…. The Help file has been updated. The help file tutorial might actually HELP people now. Also the policy was added to the help file to make it easier to read (I suggest you all do that very soon!) WOOHOO!

Other errors have been fixed, like the error you receive when you close PbTerm without shutting down your aliase form box (Ok maybe I was the only one brain dead enough to do that.) I haven’t seen it yet, but the .. Oh let me use the words of RM for this one, “login-and-stop-hey-whats-going-on problem” has been fixed somehow. Also that annoying who-form error was fixed.

Hats off to RM for such a wonderful job on PbTerm 1.7. And also for his patience in dealing with us Inpatient people!

Ode to WhoDeamon

Written by mmmm forbidden donut

I don’t know how many of you have noticed it. But recently PBN has been riden of one of one of the most clear examples of PBN. The character, which has logged on MORE times than anyone on PBN could ever hope to. Has passed on.

For you newbies, I am talking about whodaemon. Whodaemon was the little

server man, who came online to update the web pages at paintball-net.com

with who was online.

Whodaemon has been around a long time, logging on about once every few minutes. Give or take.

I can’t tell you how many times I have pressed control-w and seen his little level 2 self, fluttering online without anyone noticing or even saying hi.

He has always been there, and shall be remembered forever….*sigh*

He was always there, at all times, even when the people of PBN were not online, or….your your teammates were all offline, you could always depend on whodaemon to be there.

And as another PBN version passes, I think it is time we recognize him…

In loving memory…

the nicest, if not THE nicest player on (she bought me my first level
up; I will dump a lot of money on her yet); everybody on Team Chorus is
cool (except for you Optimus Prime, you suck :); JAWSATEME, Sharp

Dave, Random, and that one guy I can’t remember. All you people are bad

Other/ Comments:
I’m just surprised how a game so simplistic as this one has managed to
be so addicting, even though the main reason this game is what it is,
believe it or not, is the people. So just think, the better the people
are, the better the game is. Would you like fries with that?
