h3r3 4r3 f0ur str4t3gi3s th4t w1ll n3v3r f41l:
1. Kill other players
2. Dont get killed
3. Pair up with someone that will help you
4. Make other pair up with someone that will hinder them.

but in the end, it boils down to a single *you cant miss if you do that right* strategy:
- turn BEFORE you hit a wall

/me makes a mental note of 4.

Anyway, welcome! You'll find we're actually a bunch of likable guys once you stop digging out old threads without reason and writing as if your keyboard is missing some letters.

z-man is right.

Does anyone have a compression method that shrinks any data without loss? Doesn't matter if it's patented.

Serious question for a good compression algorithm that shrinks most real world data or trick question?

If the data is stored on 5¼ Inch floppies move it to 3½ inch floppies to save space.

Ah, Jonathan's PM cleared it up :) I that case, you probably want to look at the code of the program 'cat', or, alternatively, 'cp'. It's provably perfect compression, the resulting compressed data is never bigger than the original. Best of all, no patents are attached.

That means it must be smaller, so that my computer might implode eventually after recursive compression, but without loss nevertheless.

wrtl: that's not allowed, just as strategies can't somehow change the rules of the game.

In follow up to this, I wanted to point out that you can access the cheats menu by doing these two simple things:

First, while in game, type:

Actual instructions removed from post.

You should be able to access the cheat menu then with all the good stuff, like being able to pass through walls, and stuff. There's a nice menu there with lots of choices, you'll have to pick which ones are appropriate to the server.

Sorry for violating forum policies, but ****, Lucifer, you know that this is supposed to be a developer secret. Do you know how difficult it was to hide that so that nobody would find it in the source code?

Edit: stupid ******* filter.

Eeek, oops, I thought you were talking about that other thing. No time to deal with it right now, I'll come back later and remove it from my post.

Sorry!
