Lobby

Post by WeaZ »

I wanna know why there are so many posting on here left and right and its so rapid that I can check this thing every day and have to look at nearly 100 topics but go to the lobby and u might find 6 rooms open on a good day. 3 of the hosts are there. out of those three u might get one game to fill up

There is currently a lot to talk about....

This game isn't even done yet....lets be honest. There is so much stuff still needed to fully make this a game. I can't play because I use Linux. =)

The forum is easily used at work/scool etc. when you have five minutes of spare time.
Playing however requires more time...
(Just getting a game to start usually takes atleast 10-15 minutes before everyone is synced, has the map etc.)

Lobby sucks. It never works correct, if it works, it's a miracle. If you want some people on the lobby, try make it work first... I would play spring more often if it works. Also I would get some friends with me to play it. Thought now I really don't want because they would stick into unworkable lobby program.

And forget .net It throws really weird errors and bloats the program. Microsoft == !good.

I've made a list of 10 or so ppl i can play in my hotmail. we just use IP addresses or passworded games. sorry to the public for being elite but ppl coming into a OTA room not even knowing they need OTA is annoying (i still link em etc tho) as is "oh i don't have map" i mean its shown next to the game. when i play i want to PLAY not school n00bs or teach em...unless i'm bored. :twisted: also i love getting my ass whopped which never happens unless someone who knows me plays me! :)

Because, strangely enough, there are alot of forum regulars who don't seem to even play Spring. Atleast not on the public server.

Ace07 I heard Spring works well with WINE, but this hasn't been confirmed by me.

A game of Spring can takes hour. Literally. Last time I played it took me the whole night, and even if I really enjoyed it, the day after I was exhausted.

On the other hand posting on a forum take a couple minute and can be interrupted at any time.

And about those times where you are on a LAN of friends and one of the players dies quickly to watch the remaining hours of the game...
Or, we aranging an entire afternoon to play TA and only managing to play 1~2 games...
Many times this sucks, not to mention that it starts to create a knowing at the level of the subsconcient that it will not be worth to go play the game unless we have really alot of time.

This is a delicate matter as, most times, it also sucks to go play a game and having it finish in some 5 mins, not watching any good show of metal carnage...
