Re: US Election 2016

So here's why I think it's not going to be as bad as one might believe: .... He's just a regular asshole. And for a country, having an asshole on top isn't the worst thing, as long as he acts in good faith for the good of the country. You can't prove I was wrong there, thanks to the condition! But....

Re: Our GIT branching model

Do you therefore want us to be using the "beta" builds on steam? Yes! I still need to write that up on the download site... 'alpha' and 'beta' map directly to what was discussed above. 'staging' on Steam are release candidates, mostly, and also the final actual releases before they are copied to th...

Re: zone detection

Which, thinking about it, I'm not quite sure why it'd trigger OnEnter every time. Maybe because there's no OnInside callback here? Meh. That would be the reason. Development started with just Win and Death zones, where the effect would only trigger once no matter what, that's why the function was c...

Our GIT branching model

This is mostly a matter-of-fact description of how I used our git branches to handle the 0.2.9.0.(1) release, and I think it's a good model going forward. Apart from details, it's essentially git flow. I like to think of it as train tracks (choo chooo!): tracks.png At the bottom, you have the curren...

Re: Aspect ratio fixes, please test

Hmm, what happened to the server browser? Here's +ap for comparison Well, for one, you have the nicer font :) What makes my screensots extra ugly is that I picked a low resolution and the small font gets selected here. The same happens on earlier versions with screen height 720: screenshot_4.png Di...

Aspect ratio fixes, please test

Please check out 0.2.9.1_alpha_z2286 and make one modification to your configuration: Either remove CONSOLE_COLUMNS from your users.cfg or enter CONSOLE_COLUMNS 0 at the console. That's the new default. The changes are mostly for users of ultrawide screens, but also apply to regular widescreen. That...

Re: Branch name adjustments

I think that considering what's 'offensive' is entirely the wrong framing. It puts the burden too much on the receiver's side. I just said some words! Words can't do harm. But you hear them and choose to be offended. Can't you just choose not to? Can you demonstrate to me why you have the right to b...

Re: Branch name adjustments

I'm not overthinking, I'm underthinking. I'm thinking the current use of blacklist and whitelist implies black = bad and white = good. And I think that the primitive bits of our brain that are responsible for what we like or fear are not sophisticated enough to understand that that is purely to be t...

Branch name adjustments

I had enough of keeping old branch names out of laziness. Our releases currently are 0.2.9.X and should no longer come from a branch starting with 0.2.8. So: For git, if you were using legacy_ 0.2.8 , please switch over to legacy_ 0.2.9 . For bzr, the new branch name is lp:armagetronad/0.2.9 in shor...

Re: Authentication with unusual URLs

That's the actual code in nKrawall*. We never bothered to change the internal names :) The conditions for when you can get a short URI are written somewhere... I think the main one was that your authority needs to be open for anyone to register. Tank is in control of the relevant DNS entries, he is ...
