How pickup kills tron

This will be mixed, as have two grievances, but both are about pickup: Many topics here how to make the game more popular, how to introduce more ppl to it, we need more players yadda yadda yadda, yet, we not only introduce login but also IRC requirement. This in itself is not that bad, except that m...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign idea

Last update to tron was ages ago. Win8 support is shaky. How about we start a funding campaign to fund coding effort to finish/fix the game? For however much we can gather we could hire developers that would work on bringing minimap/login support to all platforms, lowering latency etc. I am willing ...

Reducing lag

Sorry, I am sure this must've been discussed thousands of times, but circumstantial evidence leads me to believe server code is not optimised. Repeatedly today noticed mega lags/slides when tst games were ending. And also when pickup guys went onto their game later on slides seemed to disappear. Fre...

Re: Fight the NSA? Hide?

I understand what you wrote and what the other guy wrote. However I don't understand what you expect from us here. Oops, sorry didn't make it clear, this was just to post background pics (and alert anyone who thinks dropbox is secure) and as a trivia, never been hacked before so thought I'd share. ...

Fight the NSA? Hide?

Sooo, I've been sharing with the people who listen my history, thought it would be nice to post for them the source (all fabricated for sure):

Re: Win attacks - 'fort' type server

[...] Your argument is that win att is not really a fort mode, but what happens if you center at a 2vs2? [...] Same when someone centers on 7v7? You seal it or lose it (grind/bottle whichever you prefer). Or both sides play until there is strategic advantage of 2v1. Just like it plays out with 7v6 ...

Re: Win attacks - 'fort' type server

So you're telling me you want to be on a fort server and do a 2v1, grind and get in the zone before the other guy set up? I think it will be very funny indeed. It is possible to set up def reliably on even 1 deffing vs 3 attackers. Even if they grind as hard as they can. Just turn back right at sta...

Re: Win attacks - 'fort' type server

sorry, added edit to my previous reply: EDIT: are you really suggesting there is a problem with enforcing simple rule: winner of last round has no zone? That would satisfy them and would leave classic/reg fort servers for people who don't want to bother counting how many players are on/who won last ...

Re: Win attacks - 'fort' type server

Well, I'd suggest this host , it's reasonably priced, and top quality, you also get to choose where it's being hosted from. Do you know by any chance what ISP/hosting Fortress Cafe used? I have no idea, (someone will) but you wouldn't get much better than Rx, not to mention the awesome CP you get. ...

Re: Win attacks - 'fort' type server

Just play Fortress Onslaught. I might be missing something or the thing you mentioned is only played in US evenings, I join every server that has 'fort' in it during Europe hours and either get kicked for mentioning the absurdity of changing rules based on 7 <-> 8 players on (tradition ffs is the o...

Re: Win attacks - 'fort' type server

so simple to implement Well you seem to know what to do, why don't you make this server? If someone made it and gave me the files, I'll run it for a few months. It'd be a U.K server, and lagless. I won't make it though (I'm lazy) 8) , you can have that job, also, if it doesn't get played a lot in t...

Win attacks - 'fort' type server

Guys seem to love win att, no matter if it ends up 3 deffers vs 1 attacker for 10 minutes, this is it, forget fort, forget classic, forget reg, 4v3 means win att, why the f is there no server that enforces it and removes the zone from the supposed attackers (winning team has no zone, solved, so simp...

With pandora, maemo and android(? one DesireZ reported running/playing, not sure if delinquents' own compile or if it is already in store) all having armagetron running maybe it would make sense to have a subforum to share tips and tricks how to get best fps/control etc on each device?

Re: 0.2.8.3.2 released! (Plus, security issues.)

This happens under all the windows systems I've tried arma on. Maybe you could have told us earlier? Anyway, I can't reproduce the reported behavior. Maybe it only happens at certain times, for example while the masters are under high load? Does it get reproduced in a recording? If so, gimme that! ...

Yeah, sorry. Thought as release version matched this would be related, preffered to report in any case (especially the bad behaviour - pretending the system hangs)
