great I'll add a feature entry in launchpad then ?

Mumble support for Armagetron. :D

I vote to keep the support optional. Some people don't like additional "bloat" if they don't have a headset.

If those links are not on the wiki then we should put them there ? Is the "color" wiki entry not integrated well enough ? (because 13-itch did not find it) Who is kind and capable of improving it a bit ? :D Just so that we make a step in the right direction. Looks at 13-itch, sinewave and jonathan :D

Drop the SKYPE and Teamspeak stuff. Use Mumble! (Open Source: Free :-)) http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Main_Page I test listened on some french channel :D ... (I don't speak any french). I guess hosting servers along site Armagetron is easy, and recommending on installing this or even adding a automa...

I noticed this thread because Radian linked to it. heh. yeah the first impression of armagetron is not "user friendly" and I'm sure "Voice"-Moderators will prove that the grid has a warm and helping community. Which also is good advertisement :D ! What I'd really like to have more feedback on, is wh...

hm, can we create a video tutorial on the wiki.

I guess documenting the best path for high resolution video recording might help to improve the overall look and feel of the videos ?

@wrtprnft: Can we compile an aarec to png sequence-converter ?

@sine: not your bad This thread started out as BOTH promotional and tutorial thread, because we did not really decide where to go. My intention was a promotional video which attracts players. Like your example of trying to show the concept and fun of Armagetron to a friend. After reading all these g...

@tank: thx for the split.

I'd like to hear other views on this, if I'm the only one thinking this is a good idea or contributing to it then I don't think it will go anywhere before August :D.

I guess my input alone won't help ... hm, I should have posted the second post alteast to a new thread ... *split?*

I think without other perspectives than mine it feels incomplete.

@smart: that's one way to do it. You can also create an Armagetron recording with multiple players acting (with or without "timed macros"). Once you've got a recording you can then shoot the required parts from different angles. But before doing those technical details, I think sinewav and 2020 have...

After having read/viewed all the creative art and potential in this thread, perhaps it would be possible to make a promotional video for Armagetron? (I know it might not be the artistic challenge you've been talking about, but it might draw more players to the game, and I've not found a video yet, w...

Does "joda bot"@forums work (if I had that nick) ? I had the impression spaces are correctly handeled. But I noticed your bug report about escaping ' and " characters :-) I suggest the commandline escapes uses either repeated "" escapes and/or a backslash escape \" inside ". The same escapes might b...

My view on fixing this bug is: 1) Fix: the signed int problem (this is a blocker bug right?) e.g. send pure latin1 (no wierd escape?) and add encoding=<charset> to the authentification call 2) switch to UTF-8 as soon as possible The first part makes this solution future prove (as the authorities can...
