more screenshots

Also youtube.

approved!

To play Singleplayer:
1) Start Spring.exe, select Mod: Spring Tanks Map: does not matter (smaller=loads faster but w/e)
2) Click "Test the game"
3) Now the Spring Tanks Single Player Menu should come up. Select one of the matchups and click "Start Game"
4) Spring restarts and you can play! :shock:


This is the version 1 and BETA
That means it is playable but some stuff is very basic or ugly, ie the sounds, the menu, effects or yomomma.
I know that stuff is incomplete but I dont feel like spending ages on the last 20%, at least not before I've gotten some feedback.

You tried to play and it failed?
Cool. make a screenshot and upload/attach infolog.txt

You tried to play and it worked?
Cooler. I am interessted in how first time players play, so if you upload the replays in demos\ folder so would help me alot.

For multiplayer, read the "Advice for Hosting" section on:
the wiki page
This page also has more blabla on the game. Bitches love blabla.

That looks adorable. However, I am only interested if you have recorded an endless list of ludicrous sayings like that for the tanks to say in appropriate situation, played back in high frequency so they sound like little chipmunks.

edit: watched the video. The gameplay looks hyper-fun and I can't wait to try it. But dude, the music? Totally doesn't work with the look.

So what are your plans for the projectiles? The serious semirealistic Spring projectiles don't seem to fit with the cutesy cartoonish tanks.

yea, the demo. Though i didnt think of this when making springtanks. The idea of ctf in rts is not new though, even starcraft broodwar had a custom map. (or was it even a game mode playable on all maps?)

i agree projectiles/effects could be more cartoonish but its not done yet.
maybe music in trailer is really too brootal dunno. Did not spend too much time on that video. Its hard to find fitting music though, the music in the "spring engine trailer" was critized too :/ At least Sony cant block this due to ip-crap unless Forb gets all commercial and stuff. ;)


Btw, just noticed there is a bug which makes game messages & score board not show up in 99% of games :roll:
When testing I appereantly got the working 1%
Quite the stupid mistake, messed up playerid and teamid when doing some last minute fixes. Will update download in a few moments.

looks fun :)

It could use some tweaking of the death animations so that more pieces explode and shatter instead of flying whole.

and put your bras back on.

I think whole flying pieces helps players a bit to tell what unit just exploded.
I kinda like how the turrets fly off and the bouncing wheels of exploding cars also greatly amuse me 8) Agree that it could be better though, needs tweaking just like projectiles gfx.
The gameplay looks hyper-fun and I can't wait to try it.
Whenever I am online and not afk I'll play some games, just pm me. Also /join #springtanks

But there is also a Singleplayer:
Image
It is a bit ugly but requires no setting up bots and all that stuff, just click and play.
http://springrts.com/wiki/Spring_Tanks#Playing_vs_AI
requires mappack: http://knorke.darkstars.co.uk/springtan ... ppack1.zip ~50MB
I found that vs the AI gameplay is very different though but for trying out its ok maybe.

So did anybody actually play a bit and can give some feedback on that?
Even just a report that (hopefully) everything worked (esp UI) would be nice.

/edit
just had the first non-games that were not started by my "need to test something in mp, volunteers?" but by other players. thanks guys :)

I played a bit of singleplayer, it was nice. UI worked, single player worked. Good job. Had conflicts with advanced resource bar (or resource bar plus).

My pick for music for your video:

Homage to R.C. Sonic, by Eric E Berge, one of the composers from Star Control 2. The page for this music is no longer available so I don't know the exact license, but he had posted the whole album for free on MP3.com back when it was around.

conflicts with advanced resource bar (or resource bar plus
was it about missing side icons? Noticed that advanced Playerlist complains about that but it is just a message at game start.

Pxtl: hm yea, might fit. if i make another video i might try this "chip tunes" direction.

no, it just didnt remove em and glitched around them a bit, i had to manually remove via f11, then disable ui remover, then reenable ui remover.

you mean ui remover = "SpringTanks | Hide buttons and resource bar"?
All the included lua has "SpringTanks | xyz" in name, everything else is player installed or comes with engine.
All the games lua does is remove most of the command buttons (like "Move", "Stop" etc because i think nobody ever clicks on those) and it does
/resbar 0
to remove the engine resource bar.
Imo other resource bar widgets should also hide/disable themself on /resbar 0
Will see what can be done but blacklisting/whitelisting seems like only way? :? Wouldnt really want to do that though.

Let's just say "advanced resource bar" is buggy. Go complain to "advanced resource bar" author that it doesn't work with "Spring Tanks", and that "advanced resource bar" should be fixed.
