Just change the server settings to use CYCLE_DELAY instead of DOUBLEBIND_TIME. No can do, as some people really do have a quick enough reaction time. The whole point is that we don't like players on our servers to have any kind of "crutch." Regardless of how one feels about double-binding, if any p...

Re: double keyboard?

last night steel p, under a different name, was able to double bind. reportedly by using 2 keyboards? not sure on exactly how, but the effect was that he could gain speed very quickly and was on top most of the time. agent 7 still beat him even with the cheating, but it was very obvious. thought yo...

Code: Select all

gArena & arena = Arena; 
doesnt' look useful for me: you are just making an alias for 'arena' ,called 'Arena' :?:

If one were to start from scratch, I'd recommend using ladderlog.txt over scorelog.txt. The former is much more amenable to automated parsing.

Sounds like a good case for a private copy constructor. :P

didnt know it would be tough. i thought that since the server is keeping track already (it tells us when we play what position we are in when we play single player). i thought it would be just to report what it already has. The "keeping track" breaks with authentication... it starts making duplicat...

Well, because the Armagetron-generated score files break with authentication, it basically means I'd have to rewrite the ladder script to keep track of stats separately when there's only one player connected.

Do you mean based on won single-player rounds? I could, but I'm not sure it'd be worth the effort expenditure.

Make sure you're using http://tron.nexusnine.org (not .info). http://tron.nexusnine.org/register.php works for me.

It looks like that's what ACCESS_LEVEL_HIDE_OF is supposed to do, but it's been set at a value that should've disabled those messages, so I'm at a loss.

That's more of a general link to inform about what Armagetron is, and, by extension, what the Nexus9 servers are. I added a new paragraph which has a link to this actual subforum.

You're right. Honestly, it didn't occur to me. I haven't had much free time lately to spend on Tron anyways, what with school and a job, but I'm trying to keep things up-to-date and running well.

(Does anyone know what the 176.177 values are? They're always the same for every BASEZONE_CONQUERED.) that's the position of the zone at the moment it was conquerred Gotcha. That never clicked because, even though I wrote the map file, I use SIZE_FACTOR -1 and didn't make the mental connection there.
