Re: Tron Movie, New version?

All Tr2n Origins is, is Armagetron with some visual modifications (last I checked). (And some logistical/authority-type stuff.) thats not all. some other changes to optimize thecode have been made,many people whoplay both games find tr2n has less lag and higher fps. No bogus rumours please. There h...

Re: BitCoins!

So what happens if someone decides to hoard as many of them as they can, to where they become rare? Do they just create more, become more valuable or do they lose all worth once no one else can get any and people stop using them? Well, nobody can create more (short a major leap in technology render...

Re: Tron Movie, New version?

Hi, I know you (Z-Man and the rest of the team) are already working at a newer version of Armagetron Advanced, but my advise should be "Release it now or as soon as possible!". Why? The new TRON movie is wonderfull and most people want to play it to, but then op de PC. People gonna search on "Tron ...

Re: BitCoins!

If you go by the monetarist view of things, the formula to denote inflation is P = (MxV)/Q If what is said is true, M is constant since there is no increase in quantity of money, and V is (fairly) constant since the velocity of transactions should be instant (over the internets), hence inflation wi...

Re: BitCoins!

it's basically like every other form of currency. I mean a dollar bill doesn't have much more intrinsic value than a little piece of data. Except governments (really a bank) print dollar bills, creating inflation. There can never be more than 21mil BitCoin, so inflation is non-existent once those 2...

Re: Armoured Cycles Extreme (ACE; aka ArmaCycles Extreme)

Three things I think will not work: - no client. You need clientside prediction and extrapolation for smooth gameplay. As it is, I think most players turn off prediction anyway. But it should still be possible, given formulas that account for it, or at least scripts that add explicit ECMAScript pre...

i know u said the server wold be written in emca or w/e but is that the only language that will be used? Unless you consider vValue/mathematics to be another language.

sine.wav already volunteered to do that, but I suppose multiples couldn't hurt either. Just try to avoid anything Disney might think infringes on their trademarks or copyrights. :)

Armoured Cycles Extreme (ACE; aka ArmaCycles Extreme)

In my opinion, Tron Legacy set the expectations far too high for the existing Armagetron codebase and protocol to ever meet. I'm interested in beginning a new version from scratch... wanted to get these ideas out there: - NOT based on Tron Legacy, but a simple light-bike game flexible enough for not...

Re: Framerate - Windows Vs. Ubuntu

In general, nVidia sucks, Intel is ok, and ATi is best. I have a computer with nVidia(#1) in it. I also have a computer with ati(#2) in it. The specs on computer #2 are much better than the specs on computer #1, however #1 runs armagetron much more smoothly. The point is: the brand doesn't have any...

Re: Framerate - Windows Vs. Ubuntu

If it's always the same, the OS is probably trying to round to match your refresh rate. Other than that, it has to do with Linux's support for your video card. In general, nVidia sucks, Intel is ok, and ATi is best. But probably even with ATi, Windows has better support. :(
