Re: Pro Flag : Progressive Flag Mode 2.0

The reason Gun-Game disappeared was a huge and insurmountable bug. We we using a technique of "Flag Zapping" where first we would take away the flag you had, and then zap the new flag to you. Because of packet loss, sometimes a flag would fail to reach the tank it was sent to. This would be extremel...

Re: Progressive Flag Mode

It's a new method of getting the flags to players. Instead of using "flag give" to remove the flag they had and then give them their new flag (we called this "zapping" flags and many times flags would fail to arrive because of packet loss), there are many small zones where flags are placed, and play...

Re: Progressive Flag Mode

Progressive Flag Mode has returned!
I figured out a way to do it that i thought would be bug free, no problems with lag causing missed flags.
Zehra made the plugin. It works!
We will do some final perfecting of the levels and bring it back in a few days.

Team Flag spawn away from base?

How do you get a team flag to spawn at a location other than on the base? after a capture, of course.

Re: 3D Progams - best one?

Purple Panzer does almost all of his work in Visual Basic. My advice to you would be, since you are familiar with BZEdit, use that to deign the overall shape and playability of the map, then use a 3D editor to apply eye candy. Using modeltool to convert obj to bzw (including drawinfo) is not difficu...

There's another set like this, which is the same, but different... but I have not been able to find it.
Looks like it was used in a Hi-X variant. Maybe someone has it.

Re: UselessMine - Create Mines with the Useless Flag Once Again!

In the grenade plugin, we can make the size of the shockwave produced smaller than _shockOutRadius, (but not larger). This is done by ending the shock early. Also, the speed of the shock's enlargement can be controled.
Can this effect be applied to this plugin?

Re: f5kicker 1.1

There are some other things we do, but we don't talk much (in public) about exactly how we do cheat detection.
A couple weeks ago I found out I was using something new for over six months, and I didn't even know about it. They snuck it in on me.

Re: Texturing to match object size

You can also do this with a "fixedscale" texture matrix.
If you do that, you should know that by default, textures repeat every 8 units.

Code that Trepan had prepared but never made it into official source had this material option.
texautoscale 8 8 # world view generated texcoord scales

Reverse Geno only makes sense if you also have the Apocalypse plugin, which will not be released. Parts of the Apocalypse plugin have been released, like CaptureBonus. PlayerDB was hackalicious.

Re: Apocalypse In Action :: Planet MoFo

Some fun over the weekend. Since the introduction of the multiple-shot flags, we've had the problem of sometimes (fairly often) somebody else gets the points for your kill. This is caused by the extra shots (which are actually world weapons) over-writing the shot-ID-numbers of previous shots. The wa...

Re: Unexpected Disconnections by Servers and what to do if they happen.

You may have to wait up to three minutes after a callsign goes NR (non-responsive) until the server automatically kills the connection. The reason you went NR will almost always be on your end, or somewhere in the middle, and only rarely will the server be at fault. If it's the server's problem, usu...
