Re: 2020's Arma

Ok, for anyone who has bothered to read through all of that, you deserve credit. Literally :) https://app.sqale.co/invite/fyHn7HosxnZFDoKDSqmcVU1ZpePUWz Join and I'll be able to thank you. That's an invite to a project of hitting 1 million players, the Tronic Cup. You've tried doing it using traditi...

Re: 2020's Arma

I don't think any of my generation is going to be the target market. I'm pushing 30. Z-Man, you mention Sqale exlusive content. I've spent a few hours tinkering with Sqale and, as far as I can see, this is the case by design. A project on Sqale is a representation of how many people think it is wor...

Re: 2020's Arma

Wouldn't that become the dominant form of communication in, at most, a few years? "Because they can't. Squale shares are Squale exclusive." So you have something great people get only on Squale, they need to share it on Squale to spread it to their friends, and then they stick around. All valid, ho...

Re: 2020's Arma

The fundamental principal is solid and I think if the idea is patented you could probably sell it! For example, if WhatsApp merged somehow with Bandcamp, or if somehow Sqale was pre-built into people's smartphones, there would already be a fertile environment for people to use this new model (it's ...

Re: 2020's Arma

Can I take that $1 I receive from someone and send 2 friends ¢50 with the link? I would likely also be advertising for them anyway by sharing their content for free in addition to donating to them directly. Can't edit easily, so apologies for only extracting these two sentences. Yes, you can devalu...

Re: 2020's Arma

I am overwhelmed by the show of interest!

I am guessing this does not compute.

Re: 2020's Arma

Thanks for your effort in explaining your position, Z-man, both in your curiosity and compensating for my tentativeness in explaining due to the level of hack it constitutes and people's response. I'll expose the core hack below. And some apparent consequences I have follow up, the functions availab...

Re: 2020's Arma

Thanks @zman and @syllabear, and whoever has read this thread. I wrote a lengthy post in response to Zman's queries but thought I'd wait to see what other posts might appear. I can't find saved drafts. Maybe that's a good thing. I hear you Zman. I think the initiative to take the game out there is t...

Re: 2020's Arma

Thanks for the responses and the welcome. I've joined Discord, Desolate, and managed to learn how to use pickup, thanks for the help. Been on the grid, as a result. Amazing. Teammates were very patient. I was never one of the good players, upper average at best, so it was pleasant to hear people exp...

2020's Arma

Hi all. 2020 came and went. How's it been, folks? No idea how many people are active on the servers. Got a glimmer from the last Ladle, which appears to be running a round-robin. And some movement in development towards new version. 1. Raising Funds I'm still not in a position to throw eg £10k at th...

Re: A public letter to Z-man.

Do I think Arma can be revived? Yes, but it would take massive financial backing and a complete and modern rewrite. The target audience is still there, but there is no way to reach them without full time commitment. Only just got this Sinewav :) I don't know about re-writing code. After the rise of...

Re: Bi-weekly

Yes, why not?

Place is pretty empty, however.

We could move things forward a little? Rather than think we are going backwards, replaying some old track.

Re: A public letter to Z-man.

I went bankrupt this summer in my attempt to create an economic platform. Raised £125,000, two versions were crapola, and the third is sleek, efficient, but just misses minimum UX to enable virality. Bah. One of the plans was to operate a tournament using it, based on the ladle format. Come to think...

First game in an age... still buzzing a day later

Thanks again Z-man et al. An amazing game. Joe who I introduced Tron to when he was 6 maybe, now 11, invited me to a game yesterday. We loved it. Dog-fight server. Strange settings, not particularly fast, but very manageable. Much better for noobs perhaps. Amazing game for the reasons I saw the firs...
