You mean a dual-core processor? I've been playing on one for about 1 1/2 years now, haven't noticed a thing. AMD 4400+ CPU and Kubuntu Linux OS. I really don't see how that would change things at all. It's just a second processor stacked on top. Maybe we're talking about something else.

Honestly, much as I howl about IE, I can't expect people to switch. Especially by making a site that doesn't work on IE. Many of the people who use IE are people who just double click on the nice friendly icon on their desktop that says "Internet". If your design doesn't work on IE, these people won...

Good point. I usually would do that on the PHP end, but yes, you totally could do that with javascript.

This would be dead easy if it wasn't for Internet Explorer 6 and older IEs. All you'd have to do is put this in your stylesheet: li {height:1.3em;display:block; overflow:hidden} li:hover {height: auto;} But since you have to worry about people using IE6, try to adapt the following: <!DOCTYPE html PU...

So you highlight the find a server option, hit enter, and it gives you a list. You highlight one and hit enter. You then get the error, right?

Personally, I'd stay away from scenarios where tanks are running over innocent/helpless people, but I guess it depends upon how a big a scene you're trying to make.

Overall, I think the idea of recreating historical battles has a ton of possibilities. Just WWII alone has plenty to work with.

If you open up your client in Unreal Tournament, Quake, Wolfenstein, etc, they all have one thing in common - music. Yes, you can turn it off.

I've been into Bluegrass lately, but I can't recommend it to improve your game. I notice no difference. Of course, if you absolutely can't stand it, it will probably ruin it :)

Now if we could only implement downloadable flag images - sort of like how map textures are set up, the server owners could make custom flags and everyone would be able to see them.

You really could make them be anything, like having the league logo on the team flags.

Funny, I was just reading about a tiny little program that hides the mouse when you aren't using it. Haven't tried it out yet, but maybe it could be useful if you're a keyboard player. It's only for X11 (Linux/BSD) but maybe the Windows/Mac crowd has something similar?

So your client would have:

The "out the window view" up top, the radar to the left side, a column immediately after that that has ONLY chat text. A THIRD column after that that has everything or the usual shift+f1-4 options.
