Pickup Servers: Disconnects, Timeouts

I have a few questions and I didn't want them to get burried on Discord. I seems like disconnections are happening more than ever before. Could this be related to the fact Pickup Fort NY is not running the stable branch? Because disconnects happen in basically every match (sometimes multiple times b...

Venijn, former leader of Phoenix, and one I could truly call a close friend of mine beyond the gird has passed away early this year.
So sad! Phoenix was such a great team with so many nice players. My condolences. :cry:

Z-Man, why have you not created the definitive "History of Armagetron" page on the wiki? This is good stuff!

Re: External cam help

Re: External cam help

Can the external cam setup be replicated through custom cam configs? Not exactly. You can set CAMERA_CUSTOM_TURN_SPEED 0, but the orientation will not be the same as External Cam, which might mess you up. You can manually change the angle of the camera by settings key binds to Look Left/Right in Ca...

Suggestions for systems to add to the sweep are welcome.
We must not have any Arch users on this forum because no one has said anything.

Beta working great, I've made it my main and deleted all the other versions because I was getting confused.

Re: US Election 2016

Let's hope he doesn't try to start a civil war if he loses. I have a friend who keep talking about a possible civil war and I think he's crazy. I don't see how it's possible. Trump has a lot of armed supporters, but they are selfish cowards. You can't win a war if you only care about yourself. They...

Re: Player Ranking System Feasibility

I might suggest that we do so completely separately from regular pickup - a so-called "ranked" pickup if you will. I don't think that's necessary. The point is to make using the suggestion optional. It would be cool to see if a ranking system actually spit out teams that match what we expect. The s...

Re: Player Ranking System Feasibility

RELATED IDEA While playing #pickup tonight I had idea about using IRC/Discord bots to create balanced teams in fort6. Disclaimer: I don't think there is anything wrong with #pickup. It's super fun. This is just an idea to talk about, not necessarily something to try. This follows along the same ide...

Re: Player Ranking System Feasibility

Cool. If you guys are going to do this, make sure the system is extensible. blondie's attempt shows that concrete stat collection is possible, and in the future it would be nice to integrate that with an existing ranking system. In fact, right now we could be building the groundwork for something of...

Re: Player Ranking System Feasibility

armarankings.com Wow, TIL this exists. Yeah maybe we can promote the idea on Discord a little bit and see if anyone comes up with a reason why it wouldn't work or could be abused, that would be great. Also, we might want to consider weighting the ranks a little based on account creation date and nu...

Re: Player Ranking System Feasibility

I have 4 tiers (S, A, B, C) with a 15-35-35-15 distribution. It's hilarious for me to read this because I was also imagining tier naming based on OPM, heh. I'm def a B-class. Maybe bottom of A. I think collecting stats from server logs is too much work for too little benefit. Even if ranking only h...

Player Ranking System Feasibility

With the exception of the Kings of the Grid leader-board, there has never been a usable player ranking system in Armagetron. Would player rankings benefit Arma like other games? Is such a thing possible, and if so, what would it look like? I propose that player ranking in Arma is possible and would ...

Re: A defense of a defense

Nanu, thanks for screenshots of your defense compared to Andrei's. I can see the setup time is faster than I imagined. Reading your post, I don't think you give yourself enough credit. I've watched you play and I think you are a skilled defender! The rationale behind your defense is solid and I knew...
