Re: Warzone 2100 ipod/iphone/ipad app

Probably the best way to get around a lot of the limitations would be to develop an app (non-GPL but that's irrelevant) that meets the terms of Apple's licenses that functions as a downloader that contacts project servers and downloads and installs the game. But I understand that there's some kind o...

Re: Warzone long term vision

* Discussions about porting to iPad are taking place discussions may be taking place, but i caution you about holding your breath in light of Apple's negative impact on gpl stuff. ie: they would rather see something die if they don't get their pound of flesh. if it aint produced by apple, then it a...

I agree.

I know some long-time members have spoken quite a bit to UAVs as a GPM. Would be interesting.

Re: using web application framework?

Sites like C&C and SC2's websites are a bit heavy, and geared toward advertizing/marketing. That kind of setup won't really benefit WZ as much as the investment, I think.

Re: Fair play vs. cheating AIs

Here's the problem. AI can't easily adapt to differing play styles and human skill levels. AI are significantly disadvantaged compared to human players and once a human discovers an AI's weakness, then that AI is no longer viable as an opponent. The game becomes boring. An AI cheats so that it can h...

Except for perhaps rebalancing some heavy weapons, eg laser, and trucks not being totally stupid muppets, WZ is probably as good as it gets. The proof is in the playing.
Where have you found imbalance with lasers?
It's game-over as soon as pulse lasers are researched and deployed.

Re: error messages

There's a problem with one of the campaign scripts. You'll have to file a bug to have the devs work more closely with you on it (but I know that they've been doing a lot of work to fix the scripting system).

No way, cause it should not break multiplayer compatibility (different players have different unit limits in their config?) Scripts only (:
I was thinking more along the lines of for SP skirmish.

Re: Decreasing the Unit Limit...?

Nope. It's built into the executable, but could be exposed to the scripts or config with a bit of work.

Re: Decreasing the Unit Limit...?

To be honest, for me I think turtling is the most fun (vs the AI). Vs human players, I usually try to rush as I typically don't have 2+ hours to devote to a game, especially in the past when things would desync eventually anyway. To have a robust online gaming community I've always felt that the ave...

Re: Decreasing the Unit Limit...?

I think 100 units is plenty, although the 15 truck limit is a bit low (there shouldn't be a limit to any specific kind of unit xept commanders). Even 50 ground units is too many as they get tangled up in each-other during battles and they become hard to manage. I think the limit increase was strongl...
