Re: Forum upgrade to phpBB3

interesting. I don't play anymore but it was a pleasant surprise when I saw it. All in all a great job. Nice to see some work is still actively being done to the game - Enjoy Tanking without me.

I get about 30-50 fps usually. I can get around 60-90 on a crowded map like MissileWar2. During a GU match I usually have around 200. Anything below 30 gets a little tough to play on. A television set runs at about 60hz and is usually about 30fps. And movies play at 25fps. So 30 fps shouldn't be a ...

most good maps have symmetrical bases, you might want to change your RB a bit to match the blue base, there is the possibilty of camping, but heck, when hasn't there been. good work. EDIT: whoops, I must be going farsighted, a closer look let me know they were symmetrical, after all, Good work anyw...

That leads to another thought, would you be able to destroy your own base?

Oh yeah, Another thought, if there were such a map like this, it would be really pointless to have the base on the ground, and you should have the spawning point elsewhere on the base

Awesome, I like the idea, but there could be some problems with it, suppose there would two tanks on the base, would it heal twice as fast? or just heal as if one tank were on it. Another thing, The game engine would have to know the position of tanks, which i don't *think* is coded into the game ri...

No not an issue, but, rarely, if BZBB is down, and you can't talk with the list server, it would mark you as unregistered, meaning you wouldn't get to play either, would also be a slight inconvenience to those who don't have an e-mail, to register with

For instance, any time someone tries to join ANY server, have it kick them off and display a BIG message saying to go to this site to register. Would have to be the same across all servers, though (or perhaps an opt-out system for those who specifically want to allow it). Removing the SPAWN privile...

Yes...Although I do not agree with your suggestion I do agree with the general idea, there is still quite a bit of unregistered players on most servers. I do not think that making them drop GM would be very effective. What i think we should do is add a feature in-game that would let them register wi...
