metaphorically speaking, if you were dying of thirst in the desert, I wouldn't piss in your mouth.
Would you at least stop joining every forum thread remotely related to BA and flooding it with your toxicity? Also every time you say "you" you actually mean Ares, no?

Re: [misc] enforcment of spring >= 104.0 for autohosts with botflag

Pretty bad idea imo to bring the whole BA9/BA10 drama into this discussion... :roll: but ok

Is this "let's ban old engines" a one time thing or do the devs plan to do it regularly from now on? I just want to understand the plan.

Re: Noticed things

As such I'm afraid none of them carry any implicit or explicit promises of stability or compatibility with 104, that rather lofty expectation exists solely inside your head and should be lowered asap. Read this thread to understand why this approach was taken. Ok, so maintainance releases are based...

Re: Noticed things

Sorry, my fault as I expected that an engine version 104.0 would be compatible with another engine version 104.x within the same major version (as you can expect it from other projects). As I have just learned from Bluestone there are no two engine versions that are necessarily compatible to each ot...

Re: Noticed things

I have been told the used engine 104.0 is the problem ( :roll: ). For BA10 engine 104.969 is used and seems to be ok. So I think PA hosts should switch to that engine? Fabs?

So this will include
(1) A min Spring version requirement for botflagged hosts, which will typically be the current release version.

Re: TrueSkill 2 vs WHR

I think trying to measure a player's performance by anything else than win/loss is bad. The system should not dictate players *how* they win. Otherwise it will have influence on the actual gameplay.
The guy building that one nuke in the right moment might be game deciding.

Re: Upcoming lobby server updates

You should also talk to Shox, who is working on https://github.com/ShoX1988/Absolut-Annihilation. Shox working on AA still? Thought that is over since he is now maintainer of BA, no? So I guess Shox could be asked to allow to release a 104-compatible BA 9.50 or whatever if someone actually wants th...

Re: Upcoming lobby server updates

Sorry if the word "arbitrary" was not accurate. As I am not a native speaker I might often be not as accurate as I would like to be. Yeah, it's Kloots decision then. I sometimes wish he would communicate more with us people here. As I consider the sideffect of in fact "banning" the main mod as quite...

Re: Upcoming lobby server updates

BA10 is ... BA9 is ... It's just a question if it's ok to ban the game that is currently played the most by players. For just over half of its lifetime the Spring server forced every single project to use the most recent engine - during that time no one ever thought of it as "banning" anything. You...

Re: Upcoming lobby server updates

afaik 103.0 has a crashbug which allows spectators to crash the running game. I'm pretty sure this will lead to more players leaving than the few osx players we have. That is not the point I was trying to make (btw I can't remember the last time someone (aka Mando) crashed a host). The problem is t...

Re: Upcoming lobby server updates

I think it's safe to say that BA9 is currently the most played mod. BA playerbase is actually recovering at the moment. I am sure you know it can only run on 103. Not sure if it is a good idea to ban it, especially in this moment. But let's see what will happen. Might possibly lead to players leavin...

I think they call stuff like that a "derivative work": https://www.legalzoom.com/articles/what-are-derivative-works-under-copyright-law The paragraph "Who Can Produce Derivative Works?" is interesting and might be relevant for BA.

Re: springrts.com CSP is blocking imgur as a source

Relying on external image hosting providers is pretty bad. They are out of your control. I hate it alot in other forums when browsing two year old threads and all those images are gone cause some random image hoster decided to go out of existence.
