Re: Spring's Broken Windows

I'm pretty sure that today, most of the people quoted would either be nicer or at least refrain from posting. My impression is, that this did sadly not improve. The hate on TA-mods is deeper than a "ocasional joke" and continues to present times. Also did those posts read like jokes to yo...

Re: [misc] springfiles.com maintenance

There is no way to navigate the lists/search results? ("next page" etc)
Not done yet or bug?

Also filesize would be more readable in MB.

Re: Spring's Broken Windows

The hostility you get comes in response to the drama you keep reviving yourselves (related to the 103 restriction and BA10), from which the community moved on. I did not introduce the bans and restrictions of old engines: those are source of drama. Do not shot the messenger. I am surprised that you...

Re: Spring's Broken Windows

Did you read the posts by Master-Athmos https://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=597268#p597268 and his old threads? The hate he got when annoucing his game did not come from TA-players. It was the "other" gamedevelopers. I doubt this. I don't get that information from his actual post....

Re: Keep 3do model support

3do and cob support ought to have been removed a decade ago. I'm still +1ing the annihilation of COB and the entire Spring.{Get,Set}UnitCOBState architecture, too. Game developers and the last active engine developer have already explained why removing COB would not be worthwile. What are your argu...

Re: Spring's Broken Windows

This thread links to my posts, you attack me in this thread, and now you act suprised that I post here? This place lost a lot of activity. ....years before I had started posting. :roll: Years before botflags were invented, years before spring 104. See the project subforums, when were the last postin...

SaturnV is banned. That is all.

Split. Soon (if not now already) all normal people will stop posting here. To me it seems that already happend, several years ago. Already In the last 5-8 years many games were discontinued. Also look at the decline of the page-count of the yearly random-WIP threads. It is not a recent trend. the B...

Re: Keep 3do model support

I am not interessted in discussing choice of words. Everyone knows the situation, as do you when you have tried to play online or read any relevant thread. What to say to rest of your post? I don't see a reason to deny people from using the lobby with older engines if it can be made safe and stable....

Re: Keep 3do model support

Hoi: when people talk about being able "to use old engine" and similiar, they obviously mean the official lobby server. (.....) It is important to be accurate and not make statements overly dramatic. It prevents people from wasting their time with discussing things which are untrue.(........

Re: Keep 3do model support

Well the question was to benchmark the rendering performance and so I chose a model with lots of polygons so 1000 instances of that model have more of a performance impact than a more simple one. The question is, how that benchmark compares to actually playing a game. 3do-Models do not have lots of...

Re: Keep 3do model support

Upspring has an option to generate a texture atlas .bmp image, but it'll contain only the textures used on the unit, not all textures on the texture directory, so different units will have different atlases (inconvenient). This seems relevant. Does the other converter tool work the same? As I under...

Re: Keep Spring engine usable by all

Master-Athmos: Also it's not like this is a new thing that games have to adapt in order to be compatible with new engine versions. That never was the problem. Some people claim that BA was always outdated or whatever but actually it is the only game that always updated. It stayed playable and stable...

Re: Keep Spring engine usable by all

BA moved to its own lobbyserver already: The springfightclub server. It was originally started by players who could not play the original BA9.46 anymore when the used engine version was banned on official spring server. Some other games are played there too, sometimes. The springfightclub server doe...

Re: Keep Spring engine usable by all

I'm trying to understand how making changes to new versions of the engine will affect those using an older version. Using the old version is not be possibly anymore. Basically since some years the old versions are banned. The spring-server does not allow hosting games that are over 8 players and us...

Re: Keep Spring engine usable by all

Thank you for the history lesson (not sarcasm, it's all before my time so legitimately helpful) saturnV. They disliked to see the most popular game using an old engine version. So they put in place a "botflag system" that limited hosts on old engine version to max 8 players. Everything ma...

Re: Keep Spring engine usable by all

I still can't understand why you are concerned over this given the replies you've gotten. I might be misunderstanding what you are actually worried about; What I understand from the 3do-thread: 1) according to ivand, official engine development is dead since 1 year. 2) The BAR-fork of spring remove...
