Ooh.

I had left this as "testing".

I suppose that's what's off here?

Re: Spectator delay

AllowSpectatorJoin already exists to block unauthenticated late-to-the-party clients. Artificially delaying packets by a few minutes is easy, you just have to find something for specs to do on startup (blackjack and hookers?) until at least <delay> amount of game time has passed. Yeah, was figuring...

Spectator delay

Hi, it'd be cool if the engine could support spectator delay, i.e. having spectator gamestate lag a little behind from the players' gamestate. This could be configurable as a modoption. The primary motivation would be making spectator cheating less viable. I could look into adding this myself if you...

Re: OverKillHost1 spamming shared infrastructure

Even ban is not proper solution, because the bot will try to log all the time. I guess the owner of the bot is known, because there was someone who asked for bot-flags historically. Can someone who gave the bot those flags originally tell us who asked for it? BA doesn't manage the infrastructure so...

Re: OverKillHost1 spamming shared infrastructure

What we really should do is implement VPN blacklists, mandatory email registeration for hosting, and possibility for autohosts to require its players to have their email verified by Uberserver. Then these hosts and players who repeatedly harass the community could just be banned for good.

Re: LuaIntro and random numbers

LuaIntro and random numbers

Heyas, It seems that during LuaIntro, math.random() is not seeded yet so math.random() always returns the same number. Interestingly, os.time() doesn't seem to always be very reliable. It sometimes goes back to a number it already returned, and it never returns an odd number. But I'd need some sort ...

Help me create some maplists!

Heyas, I'm putting up some maplists for automatic rotation on PrincessHosts. Namely, I'm looking for maps suitable for 1v1, 2v2-3v3, 4v4-5v5, and 8v8. I was planning on around 8 to 10 maps for each host, each maplist representing a versatile pool of the best available maps. If you guys can throw som...

Re: I think the commander as it is is a bad game mechanic

To add to my post above, I am totally ok with: - Commander being the most powerful early-game constructor unit. - Commander being used to reinforce control of a frontline both as a combat unit and as a constructor. - Commander dgun. - Commander dropping enough metal to make it appealing to protect t...

Re: I think the commander as it is is a bad game mechanic

Commander gameplay (exactly how it is) is pretty much BA's spine, it is it's DNA. If you think the commander is a bad game mechanic then, no offense, I really think BA is not the game for you. Game mechanics can surely be fine-tuned. I didn't suggest removing the commander or rendering him fully us...

Re: Problem in loading a rapid archive with --write-dir enable

Well, I spent some time grepping the sources. Would need to build Spring and start doing debug prints to figure out where it goes off - the data directory handling stuff has a quite few indirections in it.

I guess it's a Windows-specific problem.

Re: I think the commander as it is is a bad game mechanic

My REAL point is that it would make a lot more sense if the comm explosion was no more than a fusion. It would solve the massive issues of commbombing, and it would still have a effect on units attacking it when it died. 2 Comms dgunning each other no longer decimate half the map. A slightly smalle...

Re: I think the commander as it is is a bad game mechanic

Having at T1 a unit with high HP and BP means that you can either use it to quickly grow your homebase (eco) or advance the front. It is a strategic decision. Practically, there's very rarely a real choice though. If it's a 1v1 or a small team game, you're forced to advance since your commander BP ...
