Re: Forum upgrade to phpBB3

I also notice that I no longer show up on maps as registered. It's a pity, I do like being Amoeba!, not just plain Amoeba, but if I must change it I will.

Amoeba! (soon to be plain old Amoeba)

Wow, it looks really shiny! Thank you to the lovely people who made this happen! I do have one question, I was looking at my "Control Panel" and saw that the "Change Username" field's description does not include exclamation points as a supported character. Will this affect me, or is it that they ar...

I like players who talk, because I always talk, and unless there's someone cool on (i.e. Big Bad Old Bucko, nn, tonywolfe121, Jefenry, drummaster01...) I don't usually get an answer. Talking always makes the game better (unless the chatter is cussing people out or spamming or other general nastiness...

I was on a map once, and I tried to say "Blue Oyster Cult" and it bleeped out "Cult". I guess it thought I was saying the "C" word or something. And I think they're going a tad bit far in bleeping "crap". C'mon... CRAP? Why bleep CRAP?!

An interesting question, sounds like one I'd ask (I ask weird questions). I checked it with Ratfink, it appears whoever picked up the SR flag first will crush the other tank.

Maybe some of those people had reasons to change their names, like a feud with another player or something. Maybe they wanted a fresh start and a clean slate (in the case of cheaters). There are so many relevant reasons.... I'm pretty sure I've seen DeathDealer around somewhere, probably on 1vs1, Du...

Self destruction is necessary in the game (especially for us Linux folk who get stuck on certain meshes and teleporters), and it really takes a good player to pull of the "Self Destructor Martyr Dude/Chick" tactic. It's not a problem unless it gets abused. I respect the non-abusers who use it in app...

I think (although complex) a "Heat Sensor" flag would make a nice alternative to my "Radar" flag idea.

Very interesting... however probably a bit complicated in the coding and what-not. I like the idea, perhaps even make "hot" boxes to go along with it. I'm not sure if Hot Boxes would make for more interesting game play, but it's an idea....

Yet Another Flag Idea

I have a fairly straightforward idea for a possible new flag.... Since on many non-Ricochet maps there is a "Ricochet" flag to balance, why not make a "Radar" flag for non-Radar maps...? Of course this would be a huge advantage, so there could be a shot limit, extra small view, or timer so as to not...
