Yeah, I just noticed that. I'll make that work so you don't have to duplicate the glow map in each dir.

#95: Re: General and capture HUD improvement, and capture teams

by SanHolo on 09/16/2006 17:19, refers to #71

CrazyTB, very good suggestions! Will make the game a little more "less simple", but I think those make perfect sense.

Your current rank and the frag-difference to the number one player (or number two if you are number one) above the health-icon (bottom left) was great.

Remaining time and/or "yourbases/totalbases" top right wasn't bad, too.

...and you can tell an unnamed as many times as you want that you are his teammate, he will still shoot you. The new blue/red models look great; why not limit team-possibilites to red/blue and maybe green and yellow, make two (or four) ogro-model-skins and noone gets confused again. Same goes for the flag-colors.

I must admit, it gets better from release to release, and I really onjoy sauerbraten!! Great work to all you guys!!

San this will be fixed by calling teams "good" and "evil". The current system of "blue guy: friend" and "red guy:enemy" for everyone is a good thing. People will get used to it. Just the red vs. blue thing is what causes the confusion.

Sauer's setting is whatever the mapper makes it

> San this will be fixed by calling teams "good" and "evil".

No, it won't. On my mind, "evil" is black, dark, and red. Like hell's colors. And "good" is white, blue, sky colors.

The confusion will continue with good/evil team names. We must choose other names.

AND add a little message on start of capture mode, reminding the player that RED is enemy, and BLUE is your team.

Maybe teams alpha (or alfa, since it has 4-char limit) and beta.

#101: Can\'t select blocks?

by Cyk on 09/17/2006 04:21

I just went into a server that had coopedit, and when I switched to edit mode and tried to select, it wouldn\'t let me- it showed me the highlighted square, but I couldn\'t select it. I could, however, select with middle-click.

Any solutions?

#102: More Troubles

by Cyk on 09/17/2006 04:26

I managed to fix that by deleting config.cfg, but now I have a new problem- sometimes when people join a server, my whole game freezes up. Why does this happen? It makes the game unplayable online.

(also, might want to fix your PHP- your apostrophe escape kinda messed up in my last post)

by whobob121 on 09/17/2006 22:49, refers to #86

#104: Grid waterfall

by Jung on 09/17/2006 23:49

I don't really see any difference in the water in this version. Maybe my GF4-ti4600 is too old.

Is there a fix for the grid waterfall?

I have a few script enhancements that I think will make sauer default scripts a little better. Take a look:

Mr. Aard, there seems to be a bug with the water on my machine.


I'm using a GeForce 6800 and a fresh Sauerbraten install.

we need to have a dialog come up for somebody to chose a name if there name is unnamed, or it will not let them play mp.

by CC_machine4 on 09/30/2006 09:08, refers to #96

maybe you should change the teams to yellow and green or something, i got very confused when i was red to begin with, shooting teammates lol, i often see people in teamplay who get confused, but it only happens to players who are red.. IMO it would be more intuitive to actually ahve the players coloured as the team they are, red coloured red and blue coloured blue like in other games

#112: ..

by Drakas on 09/30/2006 10:52

No. that is a bad idea, CC_machine4. Red as enemy is good. Blue as team is good.
Better thing is to change the team names choices from red and blue to something else that is not a colour.

Take the idea of some people wanting to team up on a different teamname. There would be way too many colours. Only two is the best choice.

by rock.n.rol on 09/30/2006 15:20, refers to #112

I agree.

Having teams red/blue and colours red/blue are confusing to many ppl, it seems.

Maybe using teamnames alpha/omega or whatever should solve it ?
