Re: broken downloads = desync. needs new version to fix: 9.

* I committed 9.728 by using VERSION{9.728} in svn. I also put the same version to springfiles, but with the version in modinfo changed manually. Don't do that, archive CRC depends on file dates, so if you change anything after VERSION{9.728} or you did a SVN update on different time than rapid hos...

Re: please no more "test" versions on filesharing sites

There are several reasons we don't like using rapid. First it's broken in 94.0, at least the manual client, so you don't know what's the latest version on rapid and you can't check that with rapid account either. Second, it's one of the worst content managment systems I've seen. All the files are st...

Re: Balance problems

It won't work because of the relative heights. Anyway, a fix in unitdef is preferable to one in a gadget. I also tried to make it in a gadget, but it didn't have any impact on the mexx. There is already one gadget doing this, the dynamic CV:s. But better to fix the problem at the source. It will wo...

Re: Balance problems

The solution to move up the model centre of the mdexx won't work Wrong, it must be done from a gadget, not from UnitDefs. I estimate the DT is about 50% higher than the mexx Wrong, mex CV (and model) is taller than DT CV, it's just that mex's aimpoint is on half of its height, which is bellow the D...

Or just wait for 93.0 as DT issues are fixed (aka, any unit can destroy them when dealing enough damage)

The last patch (1.7) contains a huge amount of needless .wavs and images (all of them already present in 9.725 to which it's depending upon), I've che...

Usualy from 20:00 till 23:30 CET.

I just copied it from other LUA code.

Also spring.exe --help, or any alternative form, yields no result on windows. Nothing is printed in command prompt window or infolog

Using Spring.Restart("-s", startScript) starts a new Spring instance, but the current one doesn't close and hangs, which sometimes leads to both instances hanging. Using Spring.LoadCtrlPanelConfig( UIlayout ) reloads the UI with new config but also prints following errors Warning: LayoutBu...

The people in the list are all romulous' local friends and IIRC they're all ~35+ y.o. They're all big fans of TA, and they kinda moved to Spring as it's more mode...

Re: LuaRules - HUGE number of errors - XTA or Spring issue?

If you hardware specs are correct (the ones you posted) you should be able to run Spring with the same config file as I do , and I have no errors. Just drop it in you Spring folder and overwrite (better rename) the old if needed. Sometimes when you have many AIs their command queue gets limited, and...

Run spring.exe manually (aka test mode), select edit settings and look for "MultiThreadLUA" and set it to 2 or 1 if it still makes problems. I could not find where to do that but from SpringLobby, Edit, Preferences, Spring I was able to switch to use spring.exe. You can either do: Start->...

Re: LuaRules - HUGE number of errors - XTA or Spring issue?

Thanks for the infolog, it shows you're running the MT exe of Spring, which in the current state (Spring 91.0) isn't very compatible with older LUA gadgets. Therefore run spring.exe, and not spring-multithread.exe Run spring.exe manualy (aka test mode), select edit settings and look for "MultiT...

Re: LuaRules - HUGE number of errors - XTA or Spring issue?

We can't remove the widgets as we must assume the user freshly installed Spring and wants to play XTA, so he/she will have no local widgets installed. If the user does install widgets locally which are already in XTA, then the duplicate error will appear and local widget takes priority over game one.

Re: LuaRules - HUGE number of errors - XTA or Spring issue?

Please post full infolog, and there's a XTA subforum. XTA 9.725 works just fine on official Spring 91.0, so you're either running a custom build or something else. As a side note, Spring uses OpenGL not DirectX, so DirectX 10 means nothing here and is actually wrong, as Radeon HD 6700 is DX11 card a...

Re: Air Repair Pads not working

Have you tried XTA 9.725?

If you're interested in on-line multiplayer, get the latest incremental patch, and look for Semprini autohost.
