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...

Re: BA relevant info about Spring 89

I dislike the targetting lock - I think it makes it harder to micromanage multiple units at once.

Btw, does the targetting lock undo if the unit neomg targetted is killed?

Re: Multiple version support for Spring 90

Springlobby effectively does support this. You can choose the path used for datadir, spring.exe and unitsync. So I have two version installed - the newest one for online play and an older one for dev-ing, and I switch between as necessary.

I don't know about other lobbies though.

Re: SPADS AutoHost beta release

Just a small bugfix/feature request... When there are 10+ players or so involved in a vote (e.g. kick, spec, etc) SPADS often counts a vote which might end 5-0 as undecided, and then it all has to be redone and lots of waiting ensues. I don't know what the current formulas are for whether a vote pas...

Klap, your first post about dsd: Righht.... So the problem you want to fix is teching on DSD. Let me guess. DSD with a lot of players... perhaps 8 or more per team?

Re: Balance considerations

So people now really self-d comms in 6v6 and actually think it's good?

Re: Balance considerations

Not at all - 8v8 dsd is rare now. Perhaps you haven't played recently enough to see this. Much more common is 6v6 games on a variety of maps, usually with 1 (sometimes 2) people choosing to tech. My suggestion is aimed at 6v6+ or thereabouts, on all maps. If you measure if in terms of people playing...

Hi Klap. Johannes was however. If you didn't think I was talking to you, I probably wasn't talking to you. Your post was mostly a quote from one of my posts, which was the post immediately before it, and neither post mentioned Johannes anywhere. If you didn't mean to talk to me, you should probably ...

Well, outside of 8v8+ dsd 2.5k comm metal is no problem.

I was not trying to 'fix a problem' and did not mention any specific map. You might regard teching on DSD a problem - I don't. I was suggesting a way to slightly lengthen the t1 phase of large games, not a way to abolish teching.

Re: Balance considerations

No, it's not a 'fact' that 1.5k com metal would kill teching entirely. It's an untested theory of yours.

Agreed on co-operation.

Re: Balance considerations

I didn't say it would 'completely stop self d teching'? I'm not sure where you got that idea and I'm certainly not wanting that to happen. Sure, 2.2k would have the basically same effects as 1.5k only smaller, maybe slow a self d tech down by 2 minutes. I like that too, although I don't think it wou...

Re: Balance considerations

I'd like to see com metal reduced a bit, say to 1.5k. Afaik the only big effect would be to slow the techers down by a 3-4 minutes.

I agree with behes proposals above, too.

Re: how to make multiple bombers bomb a line?

To return to my question ;)

None of the key combos suggested above worked for me. I still get a red circle (the one the engine generates) when I'm holding alt and trying to draw a line.
