Re: Official league match server..

I must admit that until two weeks ago, I had never heard of this player in the league before. Since then I've talked to him a couple of times - he seems nice enough, but a short convo or two doesn't say much. But I don't think we can be too picky at the moment, since this is the first real offer we'...

Re: tele pass hax

trepan: All I want to know, is this: will it be possible to send flags to a certain position from the teleporters in 3.0? With some kind of setting of course, as you already mentioned the default did not allow that.

Re: tele pass hax

And how is that supposed to work? As you know, you 'stick' to the pyras, what would the skill be from passing there then. It takes a lot of practice and timing to pass form that tele.

(read: no passing). They are now represented as meshes in the
code.
But that can be changed by some variable? Or will it not be possible to use the tele's for passes anymore?

Re: Summer 2009 Riker Cup coming soon!

I'd just like to congratulate the American Team to their first Riker Cup victory! :) All three matches were very well played and really fun. I'm looking forward to the next one next January already. Also a big thanks to Quol and brad, who really saved the cup by figuring out a way to adjust their se...

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

Completely agree with Satu's post above. I've also started a Wiki documentation of the config file and we've both agreed on combining them in the not to distant future. Until then, I would advise you not to go ranting on about how terrible the config file can be for those who don't know how to edit ...

Re: A new idea from a newer player..

Could see it both ways, I guess. You're probably right though, that people who don't behave well won't care much for some award. But on the other hand, some might. I'm not into statistics and awards much myself. Statistics don't understand that people are human. Sometimes we act like this, sometimes...

Re: A new idea from a newer player..

@red-reder:

What I was trying to say, was that I didn't think it was a good idea because people would act differently than they actually are. I was not saying that people SHOULD act the way they do. But in the end, maybe tricking them into acting nice for some award might be the way to go?..

Re: A new idea from a newer player..

I understand where you're coming from AR, but I think this would lead to more of a competition and a lof of arguing, than something productive. ts I think people should just be seen for who they are. Giving out awards for behaving nice is a bit of an overkill. Players should act the way they are and...

It'd probably just be best to make a note on the gu page, that when signing up to the league, this forum will be available to them.

Re: a new thought

I definitely think the private set-up is the best solution, as long as we figure out an easy way to make it accessible to new players, should they have interest. I agree with slime too, that since we've set-up the BZBB gu forums, so many more players have given regular input and we've been able to h...

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

You talk so much about skill and then said you spend lots of time tweaking and manipulating the config. If its all about skill then why screw with the config?' lol. Don't you get it? Of course having a good config is a premise of being skilled. None of the top players play with the default config, ...

You keep repeating yourself. Smoooth, you think everyone thinks and acts like you. If your tank was unhittable, which I don't think is possible by just changing your config settings and keeping things still playable for you, I wouldn't care. You keep saying that these configurations were not intende...

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

The release of special league binaries has been discussed thoroughly MANY times and always has come to the same conclusion: too much work. As for including every line from the config in the GUI. It would be completely pointless. My config has over 220 lines - how would anyone be able to find somethi...

Smooth. It's not like you start playing BZFlag and somebody just decides "you're going to be this good no matter what you do". I was a horrible bz players two years ago, because I had the wrong config. I was also a horrible bz player when I first got my new config, and even a month or two after that...
