Re: How do I save a game ?

Currently not possible, sorry! That's the useful answer... the slightly less useful answer is that it is technically possible for games to implement Lua based Save/Load mechanisms so it's possible that some versions of some games running on some versions of the SpringRTS engine might have Save/Load...

Re: How to make units cooperate to prevent overkill? Zero-K

What if it was one table for all currently known enemies and their "health balance" (and then yeah, a second table of "Controlled Units" assigned to) Let's say Enemy units E1 and E2 have 1000 HP and Controlled Ally units A1, A2 and A3 has an attack that reliably does at least 500HP damage per hit. E...

I think in some games they mute players who can't behave courteousness... imagine how awful it would be if we could temporarily suspend chat and vote-kick privileges for players who didn't know how to behave?

I thought he meant "Other software that uses SDL 2" Quick internet search shows that Battle for Westnoth are also working towards SDL 2 in their development branch so maybe that would be a good test case: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=40694 (as an Open Source SDL 2 migrating project ...

Re: so that happens with new players in BA

I don't want to defend the actions taken in what I'm seeing here entirely, they weren't very polite or helpful... but I imagine this gerrr1 fellow who got kicked would likely have fared better if he'd responded in any way at all to the people trying to give him advice.

Re: Alternatives to SDL

benefit of having more scripts in SDL 2.0 is not that big That's because you speak English... if you don't include support for non-English characters you are telling %75 of the world they aren't welcome... not to mention inconveniencing all of those people who speak English as a second language.

Re: Seriously... About the Forum Avatars

But as you can see here, if you make the img 142px wide, as you suggested, it results in a td that is 146px wide... wider than it began! You use the container because the image should not have set dimensions and should instead be sized using max-width and percentages in css. In this way, the image ...

Re: Seriously... About the Forum Avatars

Technically the actual number would be 142x142, It looks like it's 142 but it's actually 138 because the img is in a td which is in a tr which is in a table with 2px of "border-spacing". The other thing you said is just "the css you would use to accomplish this feat" which is totally true but doesn...

With the new layout you could bump it up to 138 Width without any effect on the layout. You can even keep 80 Height if you really don't want posts getting tal...
