REQ: New Rank

Post by Jazcash »

I dunno how much trouble it would be, but could we get a new rank after Veteran? I want to feel special ^_^

Very very little.
Get the lobbies to add a new image, and I'll add the line of server code.
Rank is specified by a bitfield from 0-7. Only 0-6 have images in the lobbies.

The current is 5, 15, 30, 100, 300, 1000 so I suggest the next be 2000 or 2500 maybe?

It's definitely going to be 3000, since that number has already been reached.

Each 1000 hours is nice, but requires protocol changes. The effort there is making something backwards compatible.


Edit: Oh, now that we have the feature flags that can be done pretty easily. Everybody, suggest images for 2k 3k 4k 5k

I'd have to know the format and the resolution desired.

jaz, u are already special...

i suggested it ages ago, but instead of adding new rank only, increase time between above average and highly experienced, its too easy to get gold star and too many crappy players got it.

Same, am curious. As far as I can see, the icons aren't stored locally...

IMO highest rank should be a trashcan to represent the amount of time you've spent playing one game engine. :P

3000 hours == 125 24-hour days. Over a year, if we assume you "only" play 8 hours a day. I'm kinda weirded-out by the whole concept, tbh.

I have the Spring lobby open all day but I'm only ingame for maybe 4-5 hours a day? I'm on the computer all day though.

As in most programs, they're stored in the resources section of the exe. And can't you tell from looking that they're 16x16? As far as format, it's not the same between lobbies so png, gif, bmp, tiff, anything works.
