Re: Help wanted: Player lobby client name & version reporting support to lobby protocol and Uberserver (langs: XML,Pytho

CPU model and GPU models present, for game rooms to decide whether to let people in No - it's not practical, they can't be detected or classified reliably enough. Also, allowing exclusivity based on users $$$ is not really in keeping with the whole "free software" mantra... and better to keep the i...

Re: Checking spectators doesn't work for specs who have always been specs

I fully recognize that this is likely because a widget used for spectating is likely getting cute with getplayerinfo. My question is, is there any way for me to work around it? If that's actually the problem (which I am skeptical about) and "is getting cute" was intended to mean "is breaking", the ...

Re: rank conditions

what about to count only time from ingame on hosts with botflag? I'm not sure about this because some games will display newbie infos for singleplayer mode and others for online multiplayer (e.g. recall past issues with ZKs system when they were using online battles for singleplayer mode). More gen...

Re: rank conditions

Actually, there are spare bits, only 7/32 bits are currently used, just the rank bits are currently in the middle so adding more rank bits one would want some re-ordering. It should work to deprecate the current rank bit positions and use up some of the free positions for a new longer set of rank bi...

Re: uberserver can't register

For now, you'll need to downgrade your Springlobby from 0.266 to 0.260, and connect to your local uberserver without using TLS, because of this bug https://github.com/springlobby/springlobby/issues/828

Re: uberserver can't register

Which version(s) of uberserver and SL did you use?

What happens if you try to register the same username twice?

rank conditions

Two suggestions for general discussion: I think it would be useful to lower the bar for progressing from first to second rank, at currently 5h in-game time, to enable the first->second rank transition to be used as a check by autohosts for "should we tell completely new player info to this guy". I s...

Re: This behavior is unacceptable

@Forboding Angel: All issues concerning users behaviour inside battle hosts should be reported to the hosts owners and admins. Springs moderators will not normally become involved in such cases. Issues of serious and prolonged disruption that extend beyond an individual battle host, or concern the c...

Re: This behavior is unacceptable

I also think that rulez should be differents according to who is in the room.
I'm not in favour of this (and afaik no autohosts have them, either). I do think context is important, but I think rules that depend explicitly on which users are present are just not practical.

Re: Help wanted: Player lobby client name & version reporting support to lobby protocol and Uberserver (langs: XML,Pytho

On server side there is already a way https://github.com/spring/uberserver/blob/master/protocol/Protocol.py#L123, but the access level is lobby mod/admin. Adding an arg to ADDUSER is trivial. So, the real question is whether or not its appropriate to share this info to all. (I haven't thought about ...

Re: 4 geovent decals, 4 mex decals

I don't know, sorry. Maybe gajop would know, perhaps it could be done using "proper" ingame map editing tools (instead of the naive decal placing in my widget).

Re: Common accounts for the entire spring ecosystem?

"You do realize how incredibly ignorant you sound right now?" contains no constructive comment, no recognition of subjectivity, and could easily be construed as offensive by the person it is aimed at. Consequently, it is not an acceptable response. Agonizing over whether such a case should be labell...
