Re: Decline in BA players

To make it clear, got perma ban for telling people, who yell at newbs to shut up and (according to behes pm) for not sharing my models. No - the ban was for violating the forum etiquette rules, just as the message conveying the ban said. Several people in this thread have suggested that newbs shoul...

Re: player statistics

The spike is all inactive players, so probably someone added autohosts/bots and then removed a load of them all at once.

player statistics

Quick question - do the stats on http://planetspads.free.fr/spring/stats/index.html cover all hosts or just spads hosts?

Re: Decline in BA players

But, honestly, I think it's most important to make new and old players alike feel welcomed and have a sense of community.
+1, I'm hopeful that having singleplayer tutorials/missions/campaign for BAR will lower the barrier to entry and make us more newb friendly without even realising it.

Re: BA 7.70 Released!

It wasn't a bug, the attack lock was a feature introduced in 0.89. But I think it was agreed that the attack lock ought to unlock if the attacked unit goes out of range, so that will be the case in 0.90.

Afaik, no, it won't be temporarily 'fixed' modside.

Yes, it will (at least, it's on the todo list at some point during the release of BAR).

Re: BA 7.70 Released!

Alba - again, that's caused by the new attack targetting behaviour in 0.89.

Re: BA 7.70 Released!

Alba - I think that the reason the 'lured' enemy aa doesn't re-target is the change in attack behaviour in 0.89. I agree that this is an issue when the target goes out of range, though.

Re: Tempest Remake

There is no water on the map, although it's easy to flood the south basin and make a wet version.

Tempest Remake

So I made my first map ;) Although, really what I've done is modified Hunterw's tempest and made it into a 4v4-8v8 left-right style map. Some eye candy: http://s15.postimage.org/6qnu1hd8b/screen00055.png http://s14.postimage.org/laiv2esb5/screen00053.png I haven't tried to change the skybox yet. The...

Re: BA - frequent crashing on multiplayer games

Aren't bots for ZK and NOTA still extremely weak? There are 'working' bots for BA to if you want opponents that can't do much more than spam random-ish units at you.

Re: BA - frequent crashing on multiplayer games

OH, and zwzsg is right - there are (afaik) no working skirmish AIs at the moment. Most spring is played online as a team game. Play without bots, humans are better :)

Re: BA - frequent crashing on multiplayer games

two ideas for you: 1) Log into the online server using spring lobby (or zk lobby or tas client), find an autohost (or host your own battle) and use that as your server. 2) If you want to fix the crash then we need some more information before we know what your problem is. What is your graphics card?...

In partial defence, the times I have needed to ask a question to someone from the ZK team i've used #zk and I've always got a reply.

Re: (springlobby) unable to join game due to 88/89 spring

I had this problem too - I didn't properly figure it out but I think it was something to do with the installer not overwriting my old unitsync.dll. In the end I just delete all sl/engine files and did a clean portable install; that worked.

Re: Elo ranking for BA 1v1 competitive play

I'm sure people would welcome an automated ELO-based system for 1v1s. It would be even less accurate but I think even more people would welcome an automated ELO based system for games of 5v5+. Such a system would take a long time to calibrate and would not be a very accurate indication of a players ...

Re: Multiple version support for Spring 90

I have had reports by SL users that it is hard to use multiple engine versions with SL. It may technically be a feature of SL (I don't know) but it definitely is not easy to use. Yes, it's not easy to use. Afaik the trick to making it work is to install both versions of spring/sl with 'portable' en...
