Re: Indication of interest in moving BA to Spring: develop

This doesn't seem to be a serious attempt for anything involving spring-develop.

I can't think of anything wrong with game projects (or individual developers, if they wished) taking donations for their work.

Re: I am politely asking will Lua widgets break with future engine updates because I would like to know

In theory, a mitigation layer could be created - in lua. Allowing old games to pretend they are running on a old version of spring. Quite a bit of this exists already, when you delve into base content. But imo its important to be careful about what is and isn't cushioned like that, or it would get ...

Re: Keep lua in Spring engine

@Ares How it has always worked and how it will probably continue to work for as long as anyone writes engine code: - The chance of lua being removed is 0. - The chance of the lua api continually changing in small ways and requiring games to adapt their code is 1. - The bit in between - major changes...

Re: TLS will be required for battle hosting

Without more info (like a username, SL logs) I can't help - I can host battles and I don't even have the latest SL.

Re: Registering multiple accounts with the same e-mail address

Uberserver is never going to allow two accounts to share the same email address. Bot accounts can be created on request by lobby mods, without need for an email address. Lobby mods can also remove accounts. Afaics you will now need to ask for one or both of these things, to fix your problem here, de...

Finally, we found something that defeats the spambots.

Re: What graphics card do you use for Spring RTS? Looking to buy one.

I'm still on a 1060 3Gb (with 8700k), which seemed more than enough for Spring when I last played a year or two ago.

Re: BA12 runs on 105 (with proof)

It does seem that BAs community moved on to 105. Well done to Ares & those involved, I've played no part in it but I doubt it was easy - ofc the barriers are/were mostly social rather than technical. Afaics there's sadly still no attributable commit logs, but only Ares has ever claimed to be wri...

Re: Starting with Chili

The Chili wiki was written by me in 2015 & looks like very little was changed since, except for the section on skinning which was (according to the logs) added by Behe quite recently.

It matched gajops chili in 2015 - that's the most I know!

TLS will be required for battle hosting

Uberserver will soon require that users/bots hosting battles are connected to the lobbyserver via TLS. Given the way our infra is set up, I think its fair to say that GDPR doesn't actually require this but it does heavily hint that it is preferable. This is currently planned to take effect in ~2 mon...

I'm not sure this thread was ever on topic, but a year old screenshot certainly isn't, and this isn't a place for discussing moderation of external servers.

Re: Keep Spring engine usable by all

Springs GPL license basically prevents relicensing of existing code. It would need the permission of *all* previous authors, which is Springs case is near impossible, I doubt a single one would agree and contact details for some of them are long lost.

Yes, but deliberately, SL moved some months ago to https://springlobby.springrts.com/
