Re: Fortress Test Server

I'm a bit of an outsider when it comes to fortress, but I do agree removing some of the dead space would be a bonus. A thinner play area would keep people a little closer together and provide a little more action. It may make it easier to build walls though blocking people from coming with little to...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

Of course, I inherited a bit of the issues that existed when hosted elsewhere. I have upgraded the wiki files and database and stuck a mobile-friendly theme on there. I am going to make this more Tron themed later on, but I wanted to start with a mobile friendly theme and probably get the theme clos...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

I redirected wiki.armagetronad.org to wiki.lightron.org, you probably want to tell your setup about that now to keep the address line intact. I removed the redirect that was enforcing the domain, so both wiki.armagetronad.org and wiki.lightron.org can both be used, giving us a fallback in case anyt...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

I would like to update you guys, and potentially ask Z-Man (or possibly Tank) for one more thing. The wiki is set up and working, and you can get to it at the following URL. http://wiki.lightron.org I have also set up my haproxy to allow "wiki.armagetronad.org" as well. If either Z-Man or Tank would...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

Not that anyone was complaining, but your passwords on the arma wiki are hashed with sha512. This means that I would have to (very, very slowly .. potentially many years) brute force your password. It cannot simply be read. The benefit is that we will retain all usernames, nobody can "steal" each ot...

Re: Lightron + Armagetron Repository: Upgrades & Changes

With an update to the network, some of my servers are going to be making their way back and becoming more playable. Some of these include the snake survival and zombie invasion servers. Along with this, I have fixed the script to allow you to preview the highscores, and where you rank in the snake s...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

I'd be 100% OK with you just taking over the Wiki. I could give you a database dump and the media files no problem. That is, if anyone objects to their username/password/email getting transferred, I could scrub the user database and we'd be left with the content. At least, I assume that's how it wo...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

As a note, anyone who would like to use the wiki and make changes can do so by making an account at the following URL. I will keep this wiki up as long as it's useful to people.

Re: Lightron + Armagetron Repository: Upgrades & Changes

Thanks for keeping up Lightron.org, I think it's probably the most valuable resource in ArmagetronAd right now! :) I'd love to see this game thrive again. I'm not ready to give up on it. I've had a busy life recently having gotten married, a house, all the problems that come with getting a house an...

Re: Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

This is me begging for you to make this happen. With the very little spare time that I have, I have tried to do this on a much smaller scale, because it is what we need. I am now pursuing the IT certs that I need to get a job in IT. Back in the day, I was a CNE in versions 3 and 4 of Novell Netware...

Should We Rebuild the Wiki?

With all of the problems the wiki is having, I have set up a quick alternative using MediaWiki. Do you guys think it would be a good idea to start rebuilding? You can literally copy and paste the pages over, and we would need to rebuild the templates as well. I have tested with one of my pages to se...

Lightron + Armagetron Repository: Upgrades & Changes

There have been some recent updates to Lightron that also affect the Armagetron Repository (in a good way). Bandwidth There has been a change of ISP, and an upgrade to bandwidth. Lightron is now hosting on a 500mbps / 50mpbs connection, allowing for much faster downloading of larger files, and handl...

Re: On Steam

This has been brought up quite a few times, but always seems to be shot down. Maybe it'll be different this time, but here's a search of past ones.

Re: A public letter to Z-man.

Well, let's talk but this. It has been discussed here before. Micro transactions that are "power ups" are very profitable, but ruin the game, so those are out. But, how about "virtual hats". How about offering a marketplace for custom moviepacks, custom cycles that others can see, and whatever else...
