Re: Ladle 122 - February 7th, 2021

Following discussion on the ladle discord channel. Thanks to capone for his summary which is also pinned in the ladle channel: the issue of the length of ladle was raised. Potential solutions: include a round limit, reduce score limit/more points earned per round, include a hard time limit (for a ro...

Re: #pickup: KILL_ALL problems and solutions

As deso mentioned in discord, you cannot use include unless you are owner rank. One solution to this would be for people to set a few of their instant chats to the individual console commands included - obviously the more commands you include, the more instants people will have to use, so perhaps ju...

Re: Fort matchmaking (for pickup) and how it works

Can we manually add a new player (or multiple player IDs) to the armarankings for new players? For instance, can set a custom new GID (such as [email protected]) to a low rating and never have it change, or would we need to have a bunch of accounts ([email protected], [email protected] etc.) and then...

Re: Pickup Servers: Disconnects, Timeouts

There definitely was a pause or timeout function previously, I watched a ladle where it was used by Z-man

Re: Ladle 119 (1st November 2020)

We have basically had the exact same discussion about authorities for pickup games on the discord about 1-2 months ago. I think the consensus was to use some kind of external script to force new downloads of the auth files.

Re: Hi.

Hello, welcome back!

I don't think armagetron ever came on a CD, so I guess you saved it there yourself?

You can check which version of armagetron it is by clicking "About" in the main menu after loading up the game

Re: Ladle 118 (4th October 2020)

Congratulations again to Txa. The tournament format (round robin) I felt was quite successful for this ladle given that we had so few teams. However, I think it may be a good idea to get some community agreement on what format we should take in the future if we have similarly low numbers of teams si...

Re: Anyone got a backup of ctwf maps/settings?

I've made a rough and ready clone of CTWF (called CTWF legacy) - which reminds me I forgot to restart it after the tournament on the weekend. Check the server browser :)

Re: External cam help

What exactly are you aiming for? A camera that follows you but has a top-down approach, or a free-cam?

Re: Getting old players back

this idea was actually floated a few weeks ago in the discord (not sure which channel), but the long and short is that privacy laws prevent people's forum email addresses from being used for this sort of thing

Re: Our GIT branching model

Very informative post. Do you therefore want us to be using the "beta" builds on steam? (options are alpha, beta, experimental and staging, I appreciate steam may not mean the same things with their terminology as you) Also: https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/010/773/DenshaDeD_ch01p16-...
