You have four different options to create an account and to login to that account. There is a catch though, based on how you create an account, is how you need to log in to that account.

  • If you create an account and log in using Facebook, you must continue to use Facebook to access your account.
  • If you create an account and log in using Google, you must continue to use Google to access your account.
  • If you create an account and log in using Twitter, you must continue using Twitter to access your account.

This applies to locally created accounts. A local account is an account that is created directly on the site that is not created by social media services.

The reason it has not been released yet could be for many reasons. Below are some possible reasons, but not all the reasons:

  1. There was an unforeseen issue or problem that prevented the release.
  2. There was a delay in development and publication of the release.

However, if it was released on a mirroring service, there’s a chance that it has not been published on all channels, but more than likely it’s one of the above two, or something else.

No and no.

Ballistic Overkill Server Manager is licensed under the MIT license agreement, which means it’s open source, and from either this site or through BitBucket, you will not have to purchase anything to obtain the software. There are several reasons the software is free from Charles McDonald, and will remain free from these two locations, exclusively, unless stated otherwise differently. The reasons include, but are not limited  to:

  1. Ballistic was originally a free to play (F2P) game on Facebook, Yahoo! and Kongregate for the longest time, and it is a means to contribute back to not only the community, but to say thanks to the developers and other contributors of Ballistic and Ballistic Overkill.
  2. The software is intended to assist and help those in setting up a new or existing server with ease. There’s been a lot of questions asked repeatedly on how to setup, maintain and others, a server. This aims to solve all the guess work, or most of the guess work.
  3. There’s a TeamSpeak server which it’s agreement is believed to prohibit accepting donations and sales in any form through the chware.net domain.

To be considered in joining the team for helping with the development of Ballistic Overkill Server Manager, you will need to have experience in the following areas:

  • Visual Basic .NET 2013 (You can get Visual Studio .NET 2013 Express Edition for free, and Visual Studio .NET 2013 Community Edition, which the Community Edition is recommended as it’s closer to the Professional version, and is free.)

    You can download Visual Studio .NET 2013 as a web installer or a ISO that can be burned to DVD or extracted to a flash drive or other media types to install the software on one or more computers.

  • You should be able to volunteer a couple hours nightly, or during the week to help better the project.
  • Being able to design and improve the interface of the software would be a huge plus!

Please be advised that in the current state, Ballistic Overkill Server Manager does not, and more then likely will not ever use third party components and products.
