Re: Boxes do not work, game wont start

It would be nice if a new engine would work well on most games before it is released, and not like it's now that lets release this engine so we get people to properly test it. Ideally, there should be a engine test group that works close together with the engine developers. Why not try to assemble s...

Re: Changes to moderation & lobbyserver

https://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=36479 I think such issues as deciding who can own a host or not should be dealt with a mandate from many people and not just one man. It would add some legitimacy to the decision. In this case i felt legitimate as there were several complains by othe...

Re: Changes to moderation & lobbyserver

But now it's out of context totally and will get lost in springspace. Nothing will eventually happen.

Originally moved, but now split instead - hopefully better for you. (Silentwings)

Re: Questions about engines downloads

In your case, you could edit your spads.conf so that the autoManagedSpringVersion setting is defined using a config macro: autoManagedSpringVersion:%mySpringVersion% Once you have done that, you just need to launch SPADS adding the config macro definition as command line parameter, for example: ./s...

Re: Questions about engines downloads

the problem I have is finding the path and name of the config file itself, I do not always have it called spads.conf Why do you need several spads.conf files? In case I need to write to one conf file while another host is running. That way you can take down one host and do maintenance without affec...

Re: Questions about engines downloads

Yes, for the purposes of testing the game, it's not always the latest test version that we want, so its better if it's easy to switch between versions easily. Luckily it's just a matter of changing the automanaged setting in spads.conf, but the problem I have is finding the path and name of the conf...

Re: SPADS AutoHost

Would it be possible to have a an accessor to the module in spads that loads those files? Because it's obviously better to just download what you need, but ity's also better to download the engine before you restart the autohost. I'm thinking about the DownLoadArchives and SetEngine plugins.

Questions about engines downloads

How does spads download a new engine if this isn't found? Does it use pr-downbloader? Because there's a small issue: pr-downloader puts the stuff in a folder called: springdatadir/engine/103.0/ Whereas spads appends -linux64 to the folder name: springdatadir/engine/103.0-linux64/ Is it possible to m...

Re: replay upload account without ingame time will be deleted

The *berries are running on the replay host itself, the password doesn't leave the system for the replay upload. Just shutdown the autohost for 5min and connect with springlobby and the autohosts user+pass and spectate or play a match. 5min downtime should be acceptable. I have an issue with my GPU...

Re: replay upload account without ingame time will be deleted

When was this decided?

I do not have the possibility to play with the autohost accounts and having a separate account was recommended at the beginning, since the password is sent in plain text.

I think you need to elaborate a bit: total memory usage can be monitored by external tools such as Process Explorer.

Re: [website] lobby server update

I'm just saying that documentation is important, not only for the current user-base but for the future as well. It's quite hard to predict the future so it would be better to be transparent as much as you can.
