Re: What are you listening to right now?

Does it have a name? I uploaded one song. I did not adjust the levels and the quality is bad because I plan to replace it with a recording of the whole album. Martin Yarbrough - Nine Fifteen He has another album I'm going to buy off Discogs . The genres listed are bossa nova and samba. I've been co...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

I love Dry Cleaning. Of course you like this weird band. This is exactly the kind of band I think of when I imagine your music taste, ha. The bass tone in that liver performance is so good it made me a little angry. I bought some vinyl records last weekend and one blues album from 1964 has a really...

Re: Are AoT servers gone?

Gene! I didn't think anyone would notice those servers missing, haha. Over the holidays I retired my home file server that was also an Armagetron game server, torrent server, BIOINC project processor, Samba share, and housed all my device backups. I have a replacement server, but honestly I don't kn...

Re: I'm vaccinated!

I got boosted on December 14th. Eight days later I met some friends at a brewery that made me uncomfortable because it was packed with people. It was only the third time I've socialized at an enclosed public space since the beginning of the pandemic. The following day I had a runny nose. On Christma...

Re: Armagetron is going to the Nintendo Switch!

Ninja Gal! That was surprisingly engaging to watch. Great job on the level design, lots of variety. I like the background too, is it a pre-built asset or did you or Z-Girl draw it?

Re: the current state of competitive tron and how to improve it

I am convinced that promoting a tournament that specifically lacks the history of ladle can grant us the tabula rasa to redraw the competitive tronic landscape. I agree, more than you might imagine. Not only should there be a new tournament dedicated to the hyper-competitive, this "framework&q...

Re: Master Servers is there any chance the max servers per ip could be increased ?

I'm going to say something controversial, but I would prefer to not see more love uk servers on the master list. In fact, I wish you would rename them so the first 34 entries on the server browser were not all your brand. I would go even one step further and suggest you have your own subculture for ...

The group brought the following topics to a vote on Discord in a poll that lasted from October 31st to November 6th and was open to all players, not just Team Leaders: Forfei...

Re: Armagetronart

I made a music video using Armagetron. All the textures and environments are custom, but you might recognize the first half of the video is from my server "Adventures of TRON: Advanced Racing." Scenes were captured in OBS Studio and arranged in Shotcut. The song is a variation of "Lad...

Fortress: Launcher Analysis (The Double-Grind)

Intro I wanted to take a look at the "launcher" in Fortress. Launchers are areas where players get a speed bonus for driving in-between two trails and are usually self-created. Traditionally, we refer to this as the opening double-grind that positions 2 and 3 perform. It's always suggeste...

Re: On Perceived Strength of Defense

Thanks for the great read. Your articles are always full of insight and humility. This type of analysis helps reinforce the idea that competition is a mental game as much skill (regarding timing and decision-making). One topic I don't think has been explored in depth is what "pacing" means...
