Publisher: Sierra Entertainment (Website)
File Name: rb3d1078.exe
File Type: Patch
File Version: 1.0.7.8
File Release: -
File Size: 1.4 MByte
Compatibility:

SYNOPSIS: This patch will update Red Baron 3D with a client side patch for MMP.

This patch was published by Sierra to fix a problem for RB users where servers failed to appear in the metaserver listing. The issue is an unusual one that has to do with the way Internet routers divide the information up to send to you.

GAME PATCHES (RED BARON II)

Red Baron 3D PC Box Cover (1998) Red Baron 3D Super Patch 1.0.7.7

Developer: Dynamix (Website)
Publisher: Sierra Entertainment (Website)
File Name: rb3d_spr.exe
File Type: Patch
File Version: 1.0.7.7
File Release: 27-Oct-1998
File Size: 11.7 MByte
Compatibility:

SYNOPSIS: This patch will convert your Red Baron II game to Red Baron 3D. A new 3D graphics mode for 3Dfx graphics adapter is introduced as well as the Massively Multi Player mode with up to 64 players online. A new flight model will come with it also.

RELEASE NOTES: In order to use this new version of Red Baron 3D, you must already own Red Baron 2.

COMMON QUESTIONS:

Q: Can I install the Super Patch over the previous '3D Patch?'

A: Yes, you can install the Super Patch over any version of Red Baron 2.

Q: Is this download identical to the boxed version of RB3D?

A: In terms of gameplay, yes. The only thing that's been split out is the server code, which allows you to sest up and run your own Massive Multiplayer server. We did this strictly for file size reasons, and we will make the server software available as a separate download very soon.

Q: Will this enhancement run without a 3D card?

A: Yes, it will run perfectly well in Direct Draw mode - the normal, non-3D-accelerated mode you're used to.

Q: If I do not have a 3D card what will I miss?

A: If you don't have a 3D card you'll still be able to take advantage of all of the improvements in RB3D with the exception of the 3D acceleration itself and those terrain objects which are dependent on the 3D card. The major objects you'll miss without 3D are the cloud layers and the trees.

SYNOPSIS: rb2serve.exe version 1.0.0.3 is unsupported and was never approved for public release by Dynamix/Sierra.The version number, internal file date and slight larger size distinquish this file from rb2serve.exe version 1.0.0.1 from the RB3D CD or the separate download from Sierra, version 1.0.0.2 (1.0.01 and 1.0.0.2 are identical files).

You will see new lines in the Kill log. It refers to targets by number rather than name. Unselected targets, meaning those not red boxed, are not noted as destroyed.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: You need to install the server software 1.0.0.2 first. Then replace the rbserve.exe 1.0.0.2 with this one, 1.0.0.3.

INSTRUCTIONS: You must have the game set to TEAM_ MELEE , DeadTargetRemove=1 in rb2server.ini and Log Kills on in rb2server.csc.
Simple as that !:)
Please retain this document in any republication of rb2serve.exe version 1.0.0.3 rb2serve.exe 1.0.0.3 was originally acquired from Dynamix by Flybert.

Still the server .ini file will present the server operator a more detailled control of his server.

SERVER PATCHES (RED BARON II/3D MMP)

Red Baron 3D PC Box Cover (1998) Red Baron 3D Server Patch 1.0.0.2 For CD Owners

Developer: Dynamix (Website)
Publisher: Sierra Entertainment (Website)
File Name: rb2serve.zip
File Type: Patch
File Version: 1.0.0.2
File Release: 29-Oct-1998
File Size: 144 kByte
Compatibility:

SYNOPSIS: This is the server software update for the 1.0.0.1 server found on the Red Baron 3D CD.

NOTE BY DYNAMIX: The version of the server software which is included on the boxed RB3D CD has a trivial but annoying bug we've fixed, and you can download the updated .exe here. The above full server d/l includes the corrected version. If you don't know which version you have, the old one is version 1.0.0.1; this new, updated file is version 1.0.0.2.

This download is the complete new .exe file only. It will only work if you have the rest of the server software. Download this file into a temp folder, then go into your existing Red Baron Server folder and remove the current rb2serve.exe. Then place the new version into that folder and you're good to go.

(If you're wondering, the bug only occurs after a server has been left on continuously for at least a week, with heavy and irregular traffic. The server runs out of ports and starts kicking players off and not letting them back in; a software reset fixes the problem. Most rogue servers would never see it, but here's the fix.)

Welcome to the PALMAP texture converter!

PALMAP takes 8-bit (256 color) or 24-bit (truecolor) bitmaps and remaps them to Red Baron II's simulation palette for use in the game.

To use PALMAP:

1) Export a texture from the Paint Plane area of the game (refer to the manual for details on Paint Plane). The texture will be located in the RedBaron3D\Paint folder where you have Red Baron 3D installed.

2) Edit the texture in your favorite paint program.

3) When you're done editing the texture, save it to the \Paint folder and open a DOS box. Change to the RedBaron3D\Paint directory.

4) Type:
palmap [-O ]

is the file you want converted
is optional. Use it if you want the converted texture to have a different name.

For instance, if you edit a texture for the Nieuport 11's fuselage, you may type:
palmap n11fus.bmp
-or-
palmap n11fus.bmp -O n11fus2.bmp
-if you want the output file to be named "n11fus2.bmp", leaving n11fus.bmp in its original form.

5) Your texture should now be converted! Return to the game and "import" the new texture!

Compatibility:

Much of this material is duplicated in various locations, but having a central repository for all available RB3D docs just makes sense, so here it is. Important note: depending upon what browser you're using, you may have to use the Save As: function to download some of these files, then read them on your desktop. If you have any trouble, please jump over to the Forum and ask for help. Either a Dynamix rep or another player will respond.

  • The Gameplay section of the RB3D manual is available in PDF format. This is everything except the historical section, which is unchanged from the RB2 manual. PDF files are printer-ready and can be read using the Adobe Acrobat reader, which is available from Adobe. You may well have it on your machine already, though.
  • The RB3D Server FAQ is available in both .doc and .pdf formats
  • Another very useful server setup document is available in .txt format. This is the one the server software tries to get you to read when you first run it, so hopefully you did that. In the interest of competeness, here it is.
  • Here are the five maps used in RB3D, in two versions each: one with all the target locations indicated, and a bigger version without the targets. All are in JPG format.
  • This text document lists all the possible targets on each map by type, name and location.
