Re: Damage Calculation (always visible)

Maybe display the overlay window only while the user holds down the right mouse button on the selected weapon?

Re: Favorite freeware game

What a nice thread! :) And an opportunity to raise some attention for Iji , which is freeware. A short discussion snippet from the GameFAQs forums: Some may think it's blasphemy, but I think this game is better than Cave Story. Iji is ugly as sin and has very clunky controls. To even compare it to C...

Re: Dark Chess 960: online game

Does it handle stalemates? If it does, then there's an error somewhere, because my friend can't move but it's still not over :roll:

Re: ASC II

Before downloading ASCII, you should be aware that it requires huge amounts of RAM. I suggest that you download more RAM here first before you install ASCII.

Re: Damage modifiers in Wesnoth: relative vs. absolute values

grrr, I agree with almost everything you wrote, except: [...], or simply feel ugly (who wants 900 hp units, though that was already described as a viable solution!). I don't see what's ugly about that. It's not like 3-digit-numbers are significantly more confusing than 2-digit values, though I will ...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

To the ladder admins: There is a new variable in the configuration file called "ANTI_MATCHSPAM_METHOD". With this, you can disable matchspam protection, or enable it with 1 of 3 systems: 1. is what is currently in use: a fixed cap to limit the amount of allowed matches to X matches in Y days. 2. is ...

Re: Draft for luck explanation and expectations announcement

I feel compelled to point out something about all these sports analogies. To me, the amount of luck involved with any of the sports examples so far is largely irrelevant, as these games actually serve to primarily entertain the audience, not the players. Most people who like to watch soccer don't pl...

Re: I wanna be the guy

When I discovered this game, I decided not to play it because the whole point of it is to put you through awful game design with the hardest difficulty imaginable. :hmm: Also, it uses graphics and sounds almost exclusively ripped from well-known commercial games, which is its second point I guess.. ...

Re: Luck in Wesnoth: Rationale

I think this is a good time to point out my list of 4 suggestions to fix the perceived lack of control in Wesnoth. All of them can be implemented independent of the others.

Re: Lobby loggins in chat log

I don't see why lobby logins should go in the chatlog at all, regardless of any settings. It's not like you need them later when watching a replay.

Re: How does the action timer works?

My advice (to anyone who does not understand the action timer) is: do what I do and either deactivate the action timer or set the other values to make the action bonus irrelevant.

Re: Source Code

Since the last official Dev-C++ release was in February 2005 and hasn't really been developed any further as far as I know, I'd recommend Code::Blocks instead. It's a current IDE which is still being improved. The project is active and has actually gone beyond version 1.0 :)

Re: A idea how to make Mages better

Yeah but in reality if you had a mage who was strong you could hardly tell him stop being strong and be intelligent for example. And by the same line of argument, if "in reality" you had a dwarven fighter who was dextrous... Hm. WINR. Edit: Make that an Orcish Grunt. Why are there no dextrous Grunt...
