Re: tele pass hax

Change is not always a bad thing. If the tele pass feature/bug wasn't there in the first place, nobody would miss it. And it's great that the devs continue develop the game and change it. But I agree that taking away map possibilities limits the many dimensions the game had. A lot of time spend on p...

Re: Summer 2009 Riker Cup coming soon!

Hey all. I also wanted to thank everybody for the great event we had. It is events like these that show that we are all on the same side: having a great time playing a wonderful game.

Re: ?, thru, what? wtf? etc.

If unlimited shot length is found by the majority as the intent of the game then shouldn't we consider making "unlimited" shot length available thru the GUI? Its a bit tricky to program an unlimited slider. As i said before, i am not in general against defining limits. I still believe for example t...

Re: ?, thru, what? wtf? etc.

...I don't believe a shot length 120 was ever intended for the game. I think, like Joevano has suggested, that config file was intended for storage only and the input is not checked for out of range values. The intent appears to be max shot length 14 but through an unchecked config file edit any va...

Re: ?, thru, what? wtf? etc.

An optional GU client. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to. The client will have both bug fixes, and allow one or two extra settings to be accessed from the GUI (not the whole lot - just a few). And we can allow a size 40 radar so that people get the advantage of an up to date client, wi...

I'm not sure why a closed-source binary client-authentication plug-in would be such a problem. Could you tell me briefly why it would be so bad? . Though a closed source client authentication plug-in conforms to the LGPL, if it is a plug-in, and therefor a dynamically loaded library, that library c...

Re: Switch radarsize/opacity

So I don't know why it doesn't work fr a mouse box switcher. See blast's post, it explains why. You an also use this patch that Carnage made (IIRC), it's a bit finniky, but it works great. Note: I do not use that client anymore now that I have a faster mouse. I don't know if it's accepted in the GU...

Re: ?, thru, what? wtf? etc.

The current client has restrictions on some of the configuration values. Why wouldn't it be enough to take the configuration value limits as chosen by the developers? Personally I don't agree with all of their value ranges or default values (for example the default fps limit set to 30 is IMHO a reli...

Playing ducati can improve dodging, but everytime I played ducati, my jumping was way off afterwards.

Re: Dodging skills: FAQ

I dont know when to use my radar also. I just look at the screen and try getting out of the way of one bullet, then another hits me. Most GU players use the radar 99% of the time. If you use the HUD to much it is very likely that you will miss incoming bullets, thus giving you no time to dodge. Eve...

Re: GU Style:Annual Veterans vs. Rookies

the same 5 people from each team play the whole match, but just one match? I'd personally support the latter, it would cause for less confusion, while giving more people a chance to play, the opportunity to pick teams, etc. Anyway, it's a good idea, but I'm not sure if GU needs two different tourna...

Re: Lagstats in replays

I don't know about the rest of you but typically what I see in replay is pretty damn close to what actually occurred and in most cases its dead on. Hence when you see someone type "?" or "How'd that miss" you can go back and look and see the purported thru. My experience is that of 30 "?" and "How'...

Re: Lagstats in replays

I think that article in http://my.bzflag.org/w/Lag has one flaw. It describes the tank positions as seen from every point of view. What it doesn't show is how different the participating actors see the position of the bullets. The shot path of the bullet for all is ofcourse the same, as the informat...
