Re: The end of the maintenance branch -- "BA" questions

How about updating Spring to a newer API like Metal or Vulkan? Of course you could hire someone to do it for you Or you could and so, thanks to the wonders of the GPL, could anyone else. Best of luck, I don't see it happening. I believe you misunderstood my point... It was about abma claiming that ...

Re: The end of the maintenance branch -- "BA" questions

it was apple who removed opengl apis and so broke spring. Hm, it is a bit ironical that you see it that way, no? Apple dropped support for a (in their opinion) legacy API and wants to move on. How about updating Spring to a newer API like Metal or Vulkan? Of course you could hire someone to do it f...

Re: The end of the maintenance branch

I am not commenting on anything or want to start a discussion but out of interest: is it true that BAR is holding BA domain (www.balancedannihilation.com) and refuses to hand it out to BA people? Even redirecting BA requests to BAR? I know, it's Ares and stuff, but that is quite a heavy accusation i...

It's good to have maintained AIs in the repo to easily test that things compile OK and to ease shipment.
If testing is the main reason to keep the AI then I think you should consider to use unit tests instead.

Re: many small rooms > one large one

Sad to see suggestions like this are sill present in the head of some people. When leaving all emotions out and assuming that no one is right or wrong then it seems that dev's interests and player's interests just differ too much in this community. But after all I actually think it is a fair situati...

Well, difficult case... It's like saying "Spring devs are banning players they dislike from the game"

Re: Its time to remove the engine restrictions

I would like to get replys from the guys who are claimining in this thread that there are drop-in replacements for BA9 readily available. My own criteria are not that high. But I am actually afraid that there might be some people out there that have very high criterias. But that shouldn't be a probl...

Re: Its time to remove the engine restrictions

To get one step closer to real facts and one step away from a bunch of people stating things about "the BA community": So what exactly is the current game that is "100% BA9 balance" as Forb and others claimed? I really want to know. If that really exists then we are getting somewhere. Feels like hun...

Re: Its time to remove the engine restrictions

Also, are we ignoring that Silentwings already fixed BA for 104 but they refuse to use it? I guess I am part of "they" in your eyes and you keep claiming over and over again that I refuse to play fixed versions: please enlighten me: Let's say I come back from work tonight and I feel like playing 1 ...

Re: Its time to remove the engine restrictions

So came the time, when the lever was pulled and web sites stopped supporting IE6. The internet became a faster and more secure space - without IE6. After banning BA from official lobby the players have to connect to a lobby controlled by Mando to play BA. This happens to be the exact same person wh...

Re: Its time to remove the engine restrictions

Your argument is irrelevant as BA doesn't have any devs. It only doesn't have any devs because you guys somehow managed to be too toxic for even forb. You are oversimplyfying things to a point where it really screws the facts. Probably on purpose (really helps the situation, thanks). While there is...

Re: Its time to remove the engine restrictions

We don't care the tiniest bit whether people play BA8/9/10/11/pi or any other game as long as they're using a recent engine if they're on our server. I would be way more open to your arguments for the ban if there wasn't this tiny detail that tied it to the game size which in the end makes it rough...

Re: Transfer BA repo ownership to Mando

Does it mean that you (=Spring infra maintainers) have a saying in affairs belonging to individual game development projects (e.g. passing over from one maintainer to another)? I lived under the impression that stuff like this here only is a matter of the current game maintainer(s) (which is Shox af...

Re: PiHole + Cloudflared is awesome :-)

I cannot explain how pleased I am with it. Because pihole caches dns queries, anything that has been queried before returns a dns query in about 0.233(ish)ms. Which in turn makes browsing feel incredibly responsive. As queries are being sent via https Quite sure you were always using DNS caching al...
