Re: Addon handler development direction?

You both make good points, I'll avoid doing big destructive changes, and suppose I can leave it entirely for now. Regarding games using their own addonhandlers, I think that's awful, and is part of the reason handlers aren't seeing much work lately. Hard to bug fix and improve them when no game used...

Addon handler development direction?

Any thoughts on what should be done with the various addon handlers? To my understanding, right now in the engine we have 3 different handlers: - LuaUI for LuaUI. The oldest (?) of the bunch, with most games using some offshoot of that. Really annoying to update with new callins all the time. - An e...

Re: Wiki: issues + quick questions/answers

Hmm, I think I like that part the way it currently is. This is SpringRTS Engine site, and it makes sense that we'd point to the engine download directly. Game downloads are linked from that page (on the top), although maybe that could be improved? Right now it looks like some sort of notification.

Re: Wiki: issues + quick questions/answers

A concern regarding wiki and engine downloads: 1) I often try to find the link to engine builds by searching on google, and if I type: "springrts builds", the top result is https://springrts.com/wiki/Download_Testing#static_builds , which is some outdated page. It still has some useful info so I'm w...

Re: Open request for acess to jk git stuff

Nuking git history is poor practice because it makes it hard to track changes... You're basically putting the burden on other people to go and figure out what changed by copying files around and comparing in their local copy! Your responses to the mostly technical issues I raised here and your new R...

Re: Ludum Dare 42

I would like to take a pre-existing User Interface (Evo-RTS or Zero-K or Cursed) and innovate on that during the jam. As in allow for a more efficient form of controll, allowing for a easier automation of giving certain commands. I think this part of gameplay design is actually quite neglected by o...

Re: Ludum Dare 42

Would like to participate in the next one. Great My question there- could we do innovation, not on the gameplay (just a miniature-standard rts) and more on the control side for a LD-Game? I don't understand this. You want to focus on innovation rather than gameplay? I also don't get the "control si...

Re: Ludum Dare 42

The results are out. I also organized all our previous entries in a table. Generally I'm not surprised with our scores. They aren't great, but not completely awful either. To summarize, we didn't have enough time to polish gameplay (hence the very low fun scores), while Picasso's ships looked nice s...

Re: infologs.springrts.com

I realized to late, that most rpc libs nowadays do everything other HTTP. I have added support for JSON-RPC over TCP. All interfaces (REST-API, JSON-RPC over HTTP, XML-RPC over HTTP, JSON-RPC over TCP) are now rate limited. That's a lot of options :) I will probably use the REST-API with my launche...

What protocol and/or transport would be better/easier for Lua?
JSONRPC (over TCP) is probably easiest - but don't worry about Lua, I expect lobby/launchers are far more likely to post logs than ingame Lua widgets - you can't really report crashes reliably through Lua.

That's like... pastbin? :D I'm always afraid this can be used for warez, but I guess measures can be implemented only when it happens, and not before. Yep :) It can be as simple and useful as pastebin. I think having a tag based system would allow us to parse logs in a specific way or alert users a...

Re: infologs.springrts.com

Having a service to upload stuff to is not really a problem. The question is more one of requirements -> concept. I'd start by just having a public service to upload log files (probably intologs but not necessarily). No login required to read nor write. Maybe you could allow us to specify tags so t...

Re: infologs.springrts.com

Well seeing how no one is using even the simple infolog service, I think we shouldn't be asking some convoluted system... Personally right now, all I want is a microservice that allows me to uploads (info)logs. Although I'd probably use it to upload the entire lobby + infolog. PS: spring-replays pro...

Re: infologs.springrts.com

dansan, Is there any way you could allow infolog to be uploaded without a user account? And btw, what was the link to the API? I can't seem to find it in the obvious places (repo or site)
