Re: A message to all server owners

Years ago I was experimenting with a plugin that would automatically detect and ban people playing on blacklisted VPNs. (You'd expect the sensitivity to be low-ish but false positive rate to be very low.) I never bothered to finish it as it would have banned like one troublemaker a year maybe.

Are you using a non-Windows compiler with adequate C++11 support?

Re: Airstrike plug-in question/problem

I added functionality to the api so that plugins can just ask the server for a shot ID and not step on other plugins. They don't need to communicate they just need to work with any arbitrary shot ID and keep a map for scoring instead of trying to encode the player in the shot. It's not hard if you ...

Re: Airstrike plug-in question/problem

It is a known bug that occurs when Airstrike is mixed with other plugins. There is a conflict because Killer Rabbit of Cearbannog specifically also uses SW, but I believe it also conflicts with Death Blossom and Triple Barrel if processed in the wrong order. Triple Barrel and Death Blossom also conf...

Re: Some fun/weird gameplay ideas

Melee: Had the idea of shooting stationary bullets for a long time but never thought of a map style where it would be playable. Closest I got to was collecting data on HiX servers and then putting deadly bullets (map objects) where ever people died. Then people would have to think of new/obscure/ris...

Weapons Testing

Trying to give new meaning to the term "chaos map" by having a map balanced only by new overpowered flags. This is what I have so far.

Grenade flag release - as seen on Apocalypse

Shooting with the Grenade flag generates a delayed detonation in front of you, where the detonation distance is controlled by your tank speed. It's easiest to try it in-game.

Retro Release: Comet Busters

Many maps old and new don't reach the amount of play they deserve because they aren't fun without enough people, a tendency that permeates as generations of players come and go but mostly go. For this reason I have been playing around with the idea of maps that are fun without players and perhaps mo...

Re: Robot player tournament framework

you do know we actually have a server side bot API already right? it just doesn't do driving, shooting, and dying. Our goal was to do no networking code for bots at all and just let them update the server state. I was aware of it and I couldn't see what the incomplete code was getting at. From your...

Re: Robot player tournament framework

I'm aware of that bzrobots and other projects, unfortunately they can't really be used. The files are useless, it's just to show someone what it's like in case they're not sure whether anything is achievable. My post is about finding interested persons, which I doubt will happen which is why this is...

Robot player tournament framework

Short version I made a ServerSidePlayer framework which means you can compile some robots then load and unload them on the map dynamically in a plugin. No support for map objects, but basically for the first time in years it is viable to run a lagless easy-to-program robot tournament for a simple m...

Houdini's Dodgey Chambers

Hi. I have made this map (not being 'publishing here') which has two dodge trainers and a rogue obstacle course. It is online at brl.arpa.net:5166 This rogue feature is more of an escapology test that only the best tanks can pass. You will require a combination of good observation and thinking, know...
