Springfiles Upspring Link

We have someone in BAR asking about upspring, seems the wiki links to http://springfiles.com/spring/tools/upspring which, since the SF migration, is a dead link. I tried just substituting "springfiles.springrts.com" for "springfiles.com" but still dead link. Anyone know about thi...

just a lua file, or a "game-like" package (with luaui/widgets luaui/images, etc.)?
I think it was just the lua file? It's been quite a while, not sure. Maybe even varied depending on the widget

Re: Springfiles update : map categorization and search improvements

Thanks raaar, SF has been in sore need of improvement. One thing I've been hoping to return is ability to search widgets? Pretty sure old SF UI supported them.

Re: AAI with improved support for water maps

Hey! I'm commenting because, well, it's so quiet here! can't have that. AAI has had very few changes; ZK's CircuitAI (I think? We call it Barbarian in BAR) seems to be the last maintained native AIs; development seems to focus more on Lua AIs now, coz that's where most of the expertise lays. Engine ...

Re: So it's been half a decade, how's BA doing

2v2 is the best, 1v1 is a bit too unforgiving for my tastes. Plus 1v1 seems a little more repetitive? and harder to balance out, especially with the relatively small community. I've always felt like I'm in a gap, where no matter who I play against I'll either win or lose decisively, and so it can fe...

Re: can I use my created spring rts game charge?

Not sure if I understand the question, but I'll have a go. GPL2 outlines you can sell your game commercially, but you must make the source code available (with a copy of the license). Your models & art does not have to be licensed under the GPL, or made publicly available – much of Beyond All Re...

Re: The good ol days

Hi! I'm too new to remember you :-) We really do have a dearth of 1v1 skill here in BA/BAR. Have you checked out BAR at all? It's mostly a sea of new players, but some are beginning to progress through the ranks. And, hey, if there's any chance you can show Cartouche who's boss, go build that comput...

Re: Spring version that only requires OpenGl 2.1

I believe Version 103.0 is the last that will run on OpenGL 2.1 (for that exact reason, it's currently the last version with an [unofficial] MacOS build)

Re: Looking for Linux64 build of around 2018

Hi Kevin2k,

I don't know which 2018 build will work for you but you might find success pairing BA v10.24 + Spring 105.0 + DAI.
Is there a reason you specifically need v10.11 + RAI?

Re: Is it fun to lock threads?

Afaict the thread locking is a symptom of another bigger problem. But either way I do think it's happening too late. If they thought it was fun they wouldn't take so long to do it. Either way it's happening over and over with threads containing the same people and the same topics and something has t...

A very late update. I experimented with some Vulkan. Learned some C++. Did some more lobby work. Tinkered with the engine. Wrote some widgets. Did some more lobby work.

Re: Random WIP 2018 / 19 / 20

Trying to decorate some maps, I learned two things along the way, Cinema4d has a free trial and uses the 'Ministry of Flat' UV unwrapper, which does a better job than anything ive ever seen. Also substance painter is fun, but a tad crash-happy. https://springrts.com/phpbb/download/file.php?mode=vie...
