Re: Pointers stuck inside the Kernel

Re: Which MiniGames make for the best Micro

Could ressource gathering be coerced into a mini-game? Actually, SpringRTS already has that in place - in Delta Siege (Dry) 4v4 ~ 6v6, usually 1 or 2 of the back end players play a mini-game of resource collection rushing to a super economy that can later be converted into a super attack (usually n...

Re: Which MiniGames make for the best Micro

Could ressource gathering be coerced into a mini-game? But would it be fun? ... Depends on the player/mood but the answer is absolutely «yes it is possible».

Re: Heroes & Generals (Freemium ww2 FPS)

Ho, I love those games so much!!!
I've played tons of Darkest Hour and Red Orchestra and I still want to play .. the one I can't remember but I already bought on steam.

However, that one only works on Windows :\

Re: Which MiniGames make for the best Micro

Tower Defense Games like Plants Vs Zombies are basically just that - an RTS deprived of all mini-games except one: building the defenses. Similarly to Tower Defense Games in a completely different way there is a stripped-down RTS that strips almost everything but the skirmishing of units: Arena Wars...

Re: Starcrap 2 WCS finals today

I always call it "Starcrap" and there's lots of things about it that disgruntle me but I still like the game, play it a bit (mostly campaign) and see a lot of it - it is a good game, indeed.

But it's still Starcrap...

Re: Starcrap 2 WCS finals today

The more I see Starcrap 2 the more I'm getting disapointed with it... It feels to me like skill has a definite impact but: - the game relies too much on the luck of Rock-Paper-Scissor build orders; - results depend too much on chance (chaos, not luck) of the micro - ex: a couple of good Widow Mine s...

Re: Understanding the maps provided by the interface?

Hoooo!!! So each specific granularity is relative to the HeightMap, not the "LargeMap". So if a map is 1/2 the granularity, it will be 1/2 of the HeightMap (1/16 of the LargeMap). Now things make a lot more sense. And thanks for pointing to your code. It solved 2 problems for me: - Helped me underst...

Understanding the maps provided by the interface?

Ok, if I'm understanding correctly there's a whole bunch of map sizes. #1 - There's what I'll call the LargeMap - which represents the area where units can be in. Marble_Madness_Map = 2048x2048 (256x256 *8) #2 - There's the HeightMap - which represents the terrain height, and has 1/8 of the granular...

Pointers stuck inside the Kernel

I'm seeing units getting stuck when trying to leave the Kernel somewhat often. I remember seeing Pointers stuck, but also Bytes and Bits I think. (talking about KP is a ton of fun) I can try to get a replay, if someone wants. I've only tried System so far and it appears to be related to the 4 corner...
