Re: Linux springlobby, download paths?

I saw praise of Evo's sounds - I wanted to go check them out. I'm not being able to watch replays of Zero-K so I wanted to check what Zero-K stuff has been downloaded, and what exact map versions I have (the map specified in the replay might mismatch in version from the one I have in HDD), I wanted ...

Re: Linux springlobby, download paths?

GAH :shock: !!! But I want to .. :?!?

:( That's the kind of .. that happens when I let the tools behave on their own instead of just going to download & "install" stuff manually myself...

Thanks for the answer, though.

Linux springlobby, download paths?

Hi all, I've been using springlobby compiled from source (https://github.com/springlobby/springlobby.git) & installed in Ubuntu as root to its defaults (/usr/local/bin/springlobby). Currently version 0.201-8-g084a72c. I've been downloading content from the lobby directly (ex: the 2 most recent versi...

Re: Help choosing a "game"

What are the best AIs for BA? Is the best for BA any of the ones that already ship with Spring (AAI / RAI)?
(I hope the best one isn't the one called NullAI :p)

Re: Help choosing a "game"

Thanks for all the help guys. Anarchid, I don't know how much of zkgbai you've built yourself but I assume a lot if not the majority or all since it doesn't appear to have an endless stream of copycats. Congratulations - that AI seriously rocks and totally kicks arse. I knew almost nothing of Zero-K...

Re: Help choosing a "game"

... (sending SkirmishAIMessages from Java was a bit harder back then, so i ended up reimplementing it later anyway; the situation has changed since then though) ... Does that mean that the "game" engine (not Spring but, ex, Zero-K's engine) can exchange «proper» messages with a non-Lua AI? Do you k...

Re: Help choosing a "game"

... the user joins the game in the lobby and it gets autodownloaded, how do they get the AI? They would have to find it online, download it and then figure out which engine folder to put it in, and what ai folder to put it in. ... - When a lobby auto-downloads a content-pack, whatever it is (map, e...

Re: Are there Campaign-AIs required

For Spring missions, I once made an AI whose goal was to rebuild lost units and give them back their order queues. Maybe this doesn't count since ... No, no! That's exactly what I meant. I agree with you - that's what a proper Campaigns AI is like. I thought Paulo was meaning an AI to control the o...

Re: Help choosing a "game"

What's the current status of NOTA? Do people still play it? Is it still maintained? Does it work in the current version of Spring? I remember NOTA had a pretty niche community that, although small, was always very faithful, always with a few games every day and appeared to never decay. And I remembe...

Re: Help choosing a "game"

Hey guys, thanks for all the replies. Sooo unfortunate that the content packs just keep getting broken by new versions of the engine. On the other hand, with an overview knowledge of Software Engineering, I do understand that development of changes on a system can end up getting road-blocked and nev...

Re: Are there Campaign-AIs required

This is what I infer from your reply: - No, there's no AIs specialized on Compaigns; - No, there's no one actively requiring them (either because no one is interested in creating campaigns or because no one is expecting such an AI to exist / come to exist) (*); - You're proposing the idea of a chang...

Are there Campaign-AIs required

I'm looking to get back into AI coding and I want to build a proper AI. The most obvious thing to do is a skirmishing AI, for 1v1s. However, it popped to mind that an AI agent to play campaigns is also a very cool thing to do, and maybe something that's very lacking in the world of SpringRTS (at lea...

Help choosing a "game"

Sometime ago (early this year?) I delved lightly into creating a toy AI for Spring. I did it for Kernel Panic and it was load of fun. Now, I want to go deeper into it an really build a proper AI agent - a fully functional and proper player - and I'd like help with choosing a "mod" (game) to focus on...

Re: Commsharing/Archon mode

I seem to remember comm-sharing existing either right from the start or from a very early age, when Spring was still at its peak (~200 users actively playing during rush hours). Even more, I seem to remember it existing in oTA (oTA was light-years ahead of its time). At the time of early Spring I wa...

Re: Ashes of the singularity

Hurray for another spiritual successor to TA. True, we've had so many disappointments (I really liked SupCom1, though not as much as Spring at its peak of glory). However, eventually, if they keep trying eventually someone has to get it right, no? Kudos for awesome graphics. I noticed that, unlike S...
