Re: Score system/time limit

And it is not there to start a match with a 4-0 score either!
Joking:)
I am not sure if quol's server supports /timelimit. But I agree it would be helpful to end discontinued matches.

Re: Fun!

The main reason why the fun league became inactive was not that people stopped playing fun matches, but that I simply forgot the password to maintain it (don't ask :doh: ). AlliedArmour and Grand slam proposed about a year ago to reactivate the Fun league. I didn't manage to login then. But I manage...

Re: Big annoyance

The problem is that some of us cannot be there everyday. There are probably a few teams created and deleted again where for example I am not even aware they existed at all. I really appreciate that you pointed us to this problem without naming people. It shows the general level of the GU League play...

Re: League Site's 'Team' Page

Sounds like it's being done wrong then. Don't run a query that counts how many matches each team had. Store how many matches they had right in the team table, and then increment that when a new match is added. Yeah, but [dmp] aint here and menotume is to busy tking :) Are we using an older webleagu...

Re: League Site's 'Team' Page

This is due the involved SQL query. With the increasing amount of matches in the database, that query takes a considerable amount of time to retrieve those values. For a single team to calculate this value as is done on the team page is trivial. Calculating them in a single query for listing the tea...

Re: Add server when reporting

Thanks for that update Dexter, probably will use your info for a new sticky about replay servers.

The main reason why dub59997 is not anymore listed as an official match server is because it does not feature a replay server. Maybe one of the other server hosters can help him in setting one up.

Re: Add server when reporting

For now, some servers offer a replay list on their website. That could be a a possibility to find that match. The listing also reports the players involved. Nice could be if that listing on the server website would also display the score as that should be trackable :) Elas, not all of the match serv...

Re: Lagstats in replays

This may differ from user to user using the replay. Of what I see, 80% of the benefit of the replay as we have it today is for players to verify after a match that what they think was a 100% shot through in the replay actually looks like a miss after all. Another 10% is to verify if the tank itself ...

Re: Lagstats in replays

This can subtly change the state between a live game and a recorded game, especially if jitter is high. I think that is why dexter proposes to have lag and jitter values in the replay available, so one can make a better assumption to what the original recipient saw (not so much what he actually saw...

Re: Lagstats in replays

when viewing a replay, your (yes you, the viewer) current lag with the server affects what you see I am not quite understanding that point.

Re: Settings

Not all players in the GU league, but quite a few are using mice with higher dpi. I think somewhere around 2000-3000 is standard. Some might have more. Higher DPI may help to gain more control. A few of the very good players also use quite slow mice though. How they do it they will have to explain. ...

What constitutes the 10 best is what was not well defined. The team captains chosen by the GU League Admins were chosen because we would trust them to inte...

Maybe not "tank battle realism", but that is something bzflag hardly is, and that's why it's a great game:) It is very much of an arcade game, where with only a simple way of game control you can allow the tank to do a lot, the game control feels very natural and intuitive, I think that is what was ...

There already is a shot-path implementation for shots. It would require for flags to be modeled using a flag-path implementation, implying that a flying flag actually is a special kind of shot.

Wouldn't really require a toggle. You drive straight for shooting with no spin. Also a toggle would make it impossible to read spin, at least you can guess the spin from the shooters tank movement (if your good).
A toggle would make that a lot more random.

intercepting flying team flags

How about the possibility to be able to intercept team flags - either dropped and catched - flags that have been send by dropping them off over pyramids and other surfaces. The flag has to enter the hitzone (sphere) of the tank to be able to catch them. This probably requires a flag-path implementat...
