I just upgraded HWSHOTS to latest available Gallery Software Update (Piwigo) and some issues we have seen sporadically are now gone. Also looking in to some kind of blog section where to post just this kinda things. E-mail notifications for Comments also kicked in, but I have disabled public commenting since there were a few spammers.

Registry Hack for Resolution and better Windows7 compatibility:
As always, editing your registry is dangerous and you do so at your own risk!
- Install Homeworld - I have the "Game of the Year" Edition. I have not installed any additional patches.
- Go into regedit - Find key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sierra On-Line\Homeworld" * - Change "screenHeight" key to your screen height (800 in my case) - Change "screenWidth" key to your screen height (1280 in my case) - Make sure the "base" is in decimal
* Key for Windows 7 (64bit): "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sierra On-Line\Homeworld"
PS. I will update out Troubleshooting information with new findings as they appear.
Due to a large number of Spambot registrations I have disabled the Registration system until I have a better control over this. Those with a genuine interest in Homeworld wanting access to this site, should know where I can be contacted.
Given the preparations for the site upgrade I have not looked in to activation of new members for a while. I am still surprised over the amount of registrations being done on this site over the years. Of course, some are spam bots, hence the manual activation required to try to avoid these.
Despite that late activation (I am still on it) I welcome you all and hope you will find the information here useful.
As you may see I (if you pop in and out of this site from time to time) am working on the CSS of this theme to make it look "homewordly" so expect some things looking a bit odd while doing it.

Some of You may have noticed a new site, www.homeworldtrinity.org being a complement to this site. Complement? Well, see it this way, the great looks and graphical content of HWTRI is meant to pimp Homeworld. Even more, if possible. HWACCESS will remain and will still have what You see, I am not in for throwing it away. But, I enhance the focus on Mod hosting and resource gathering a bit more here, and concentrate on newsworthy items from the Homeworld modding universe at HWTRI. Like news on the release of Onslaught v. 4.1 or new version of Complex...that kind of stuff.
As it is I have eased up some slightly clutterish items on the frontpage of this site, and will do some more cleanup when possible. Suggestions are welcome.
And yes, the ads I get offers about will be posted. I know that AOL is hardly relevant in Europe, but those ads actually generates some cash. So bear with them. AOL will be replaced with something else and that again. Campaigns. Adblock blocks my banners Another noteworthy thing is related to the Adblock extension of Mozilla/Firefox. I just today noticed that top banner will not show if enabled for this site. If You use Adblock, please consider trusting my site...
