Re: Future of BAR

There are so many separate people working on Lobby's, it's just bizarre! I think people should join forces and make just 1 really good one. We're also checking out the Notalobby - you familiar with that one? @ThinkSome do you have some examples of what you've accomplished so far? Some screenshots o...

Re: Future of BAR

Hello, We'll we've done a lot in the mean time, but we still need a (very) good plan for the lobby and install procedure as well. - We tried Chobby/Lobby... but no real succes there - Look into missions But in the end, we still need a proper way to let people play it as easy as possible, with the ri...

Re: Automatic uploads of engine (crash) logs

How about .. renaming "text" to "object" and have this hold an uploader-defined JSON object tree. SL would then have at minimum 3 objects underneath: "lobbyLog", "engineLog" and "replay". I don't know if anyone is parsing / processing them yet. I briefly saw a mantis bug that forb had opened with a ...

Springlobby wxFormBuilder migration instructions released

They are here and detail what has to be done in order to port existing C++ code over to wxFB.

The use of wxFormBuilder should ease maintenance of the GUI and the code behind it. It should allow anyone to change the looks of SL without having to look at any code (within limits, of course).

Location, shape and colour of content-presence indicators

Hello, I am looking at unifying the way content presence (i.e. if you have the map/game/engine downloaded) is indicated. Right now Battlelist/Multiplayer has one indicator per content type in the main dataview, while Replays has one indicator at the left side of the Date column. indicators.jpg The q...

Re: Autohosts operating non-downloadable engines

If the problem is engines taking up too much space on the server, then it can be solved without download issues by having the server act as an LRU reverse proxy cache for some other server that sits at someone's home.

Re: Autohosts operating non-downloadable engines

Another 8 of the hosted engines fell off the build server, and another (old) newbie + me wasted time debugging this.

Now there are 10 such hosts. In other words, 22% of all hosts offer games on engines that cannot be downloaded. Good job!

Re: SpringLobby testing for springlobby 0.268

In the interim period, the server could send an email only if an email address was provided. The server knows when the email address is provided, naturally.

Improved field of fire display

Does there already exist an improved field-of-fire display code that would, in addition to left and right traverse of deployed guns, show which terrain is hidden behind obstacles and which is not? The current display of field of fire in s44 is the following: fof.jpg As you can see, it does not indic...

Re: relayhosts & spring-dedicated

For now the option to use relayhosts will be hidden by default. Since whatever happens would probably be new development, I think we can return back to the drawing board and ask ourselves what we want from it. I think that building it to be Spring-specific will again land us into the same situation ...
