makes me sick

Post by username » November 13th, 2006, 8:33 am

Excuse my extreme cluelessness, but I just started playing and I already have an itty-bitty silly concern...
How can I stop the game window from moving,or at least slow it down?
Every time something happens, the view zips over to that thing and then zips to the next thing and so on till I'm supposed to click something again. The overall effect is giving me nausea as I try to keep up. And it's not like everything I need to see in the beginning isn't already in-view, so it's just shifting around for no reason except to give me motion sickness.

If you mean the view tracking enemies' moves, then just go to preferences and switch "Skip AI Moves" on (it's probably off by default). It still zips to show combat on enemies' turns, but that shouldn't be a bad thing. There's a scrolling speed setting there somewhere, too.

I just had to try that - sorry :P.

Furthermre I suggest that "username" should be banned or a forum moderator changes the password (or he changes it him/herself) to avoid missuse of this account (username could contact him if he want the account back or better create a new account since the email adress a@a.a doesn't seem valid).

Well I can understand if you use such an account in 10,000 people communities but somehow I think it would be a better idea if everybody had his own account in forums with maybe 50 active posters.

I'm not saying it's a good thing to use for Wesnoth, just pointing out the philosophy behind it.

Yes, this philosophy doesn't apply for this forum. Especially because this has nothing to do with personal security(i.e. anonymity) or fast access, since this forum (as all forums actually should be) is for discussions and not for jsut asking a question and getting an answer (also this might also be the case sometimes).
Thus in a forum one should be sure if person A is person A and not evtl. some person B, otherwise it would get just messy.

Hi Kshinji,

I think you misinterprete the whole matter. Its not about disallowing guests posting but preventing others misusing acounts by having not only an easy to guess password (as "password") but which is also practicaly public (due to all the posts after zookeepers answer, including mine - I realise that now, sorry - maybe one should have just send "username" a personal message first).

I think noone had a problem if "username" would have changed his password or if he would sign up again.

It is about disallowing posting for guests. Bugmenot.com's whole purpose is to create public psuedo-guest accounts on forums.

Disclaimer: I like Bugmenot.com, I really do. It's amazing for non-PHPBB based forums that make you jump through tons of hoops or open you up to horrible spamming... but guest accounts for a small, PHPBB-based forum like Wesnoth chip away at the one asset that (literally) made the entire game: a cozy, personable community.
