Re: If Microsoft buys github

I don't understand this kneejerk reactionary stuff. This is not knee-jerk reactionary stuff, I have carefully considered this and reacted the conclusion that using a proprietary platform for development of open software makes no sense. The time to act is when you have good evidence, not before, not...

Re: If Microsoft buys github

One year later, what has been done? I have moved my active personal projects to framagit.org (that were previously on notabug.org) and have mostly stopped taking part in Github activities (for the most part, contributions to Springlobby).

I don't like the sword image to signify battle. This is not a medieval jousting game, but instead robots are fighting each other. Remove the symbol and use words instead.

Using words makes the column much wider than necessary. Instead you could provide better icons for the columns.

Re: Third War: A new Spring game

... The comment was made to emphasize that a reasonable expectation of games based on some era (whether it be in past or in future) is that they are realistic to that era and it was not meant to start more drama. Perhaps I should have used "ZeroK" instead of "BA/TA/whatever", since this game is sai...

Re: 1208 Maintenance - Decloak rage is not causing decloak

I think we have the same problem in s44+1218. In addition to this, some of the cloaked units are intermittedly decloaking - "blinking".

Was this issue not there in some previous engine version? If so, which one?

Re: Third War: A new Spring game

Ammo/fuel and armor mechanics are not hyper realism. Hyper realism would be making the soldiers eat, poop and sleep.

Without the ammo/fuel/armor mechanics, your game is no longer a historic game, it is merely BA/TA/whatever with units retextured into camouflage colours.

Re: Third War: A new Spring game

This game is modern war though, not WW2. Sure, but you could at least look at how the most realistic Spring game looks and plays like before spending 8 months developing something "just like it", but moved 100 years into the future. That said, do you plan to implement/have realism such as limited a...

I wish there were something to also prevent all updates. Those are the most annoying things today on the net: i) ads ii) software updates A solution for those is to whitelist programs. The easiest OS-independent way of achieving that is to have browser access the net via an external proxy server wh...

Nice work!

Has no one told you that there already exists a complete WW2 game on the Spring engine?

Re: 8 players to 16 players limit (and back)

What good is this past work if there are no players to enjoy it? I can understand that you enjoy spectating and I can understand that a lot of people enjoy playing 8v8 games, but this is simply unsustainable and killing this community in the long run. I am not suggesting this to be implemented overn...
