What it is it going to take to make a .4 stable release?

What do you want to see in Armagetron soon? Any new feature ideas? Let's ponder these ground breaking ideas...

I think we've got some 128x128 icons somewhere.

a simplified version of the icon from Lacka's armaunified work.

I traced out to make an svg, but the file format isn't allowed as an attachment

might be controversial, but we should probably harmonize whatever icon is used for the site/forums with the game. Obviously, right now and for the past ten years or whatever, they have matched, but if the visual renovation of armagetronad.net is going to happen, it might be worth considering at least icon consistency with the client, no?

it would be ideal if the picture of a lightcycle that is shown as the icon also matches what lightcycles actually look like in game as well. False advertising and all that.

anyway, big yellow png

Why are you worried about that? The icon looks nicer...

It took me years to realise that was a picture of a lightcycle as soon from directly above it looking down. I'm not kidding. (And if that's not what it is, shoot me now.)

Yea, it seems to be misleading; here's some pics with a top-down view:
Old Fashioned Light Cycle
Legacy Style Light Cycle
Kevin Flynn's Legacy Light Cycle

Though the following should clear things up:
Arcade Style Light Cycles
Classic Tron Game (man, games were so easy back then, give this a 10 minute try and you'll be done - next level of difficulty)



Though I agree with what's been said: Armagetron needs a more suitable (accurately portrayed) icon.
Either that or a new cycle model to match. (sidenote, I don't imagine it being too difficult to add custom cycle models as an option)
Is it a priority? You're asking someone who is "function before fashion" - IDC how ugly the icon or entire game is, so long as I have fun playing it and it works.

Yeah a game mode that can barely discern rubber is ******* high quality. This is another aspect of the devs being too lazy or stupid to fix an obviously broken thing because itll make a bunch of pussies cry.

I hope you get interaids. I will destroy you all.

* Automated builds: Working on that right now.
Any success here? I tried setting up a Jenkins for windows builds. But my old windows laptop just went dead :( so no help there sorry.

Is it stable yet?

The previous concerns (before SDL2 had their drama, and compguygene: the drama I'm talking about was quite a long time ago, so it's not surprising that someone's picked up the glove and pushed SDL2 to release) about SDL2 support had a lot to do with keybinds and being able to migrate old configs to the new ones. I suspect we'll just ignore those concerns, though. But we'll see. ;)
Isn't it merged already?

The latest windows and OSX builds are way too old.
It would be also nice to give the community easy access to unstable builds (like the old beta.armagetronad.net). If it needs some coding for that, I can do it. It's pretty easy to get the latest builds from sourceforge and display the links on some page.
