Re: A problem and a not-working bug tracker...

In graphics frames between game ticks, their locations are interpolated. My guess is that the initial locations don't have a sensible height coordinate. Looking at the code seems to confirm this. It's probably my fault, sorry.

Re: A problem and a not-working bug tracker...

I think I've seen that occasionally.

The bug tracker is dead, and substituted by the Github issue tracker.

Re: i just recently downloaded the game

Don't know, but if you're stuck on Windows, then try updating your graphics drivers in case it helps.

Re: Unable to host a game: connection timed out on Warzone

Disabling Windows is a good start, but enabling Linux helps too.

Actually, I get the same or similar error when hosting. Which is actually rather strange, since my games do show in the lobby and people can join anyway. I don't know if it could be somehow related to having gotten native IPv6 support.

Re: Release 3.3.0

Commanders need more experience, so the experience of a "Special" commander might be equivalent to the experience of a "Hero" regular unit. Was the recycled unit a commander?

Re: Thread pooling?

… The problem with threading is probably that it doesn't work very well with spaghetti code that messes with lots of random global variables hidden all over the place. Is... is that whining I hear?!

Re: Who uses cannon-flak?

Hurricane requires twin MG and Whirlwind requires AG. I haven't noticed any of its upgrades depending on cannons at all. I think the problem might be that AA (except for cannon FLAK) is way too strong in general, that almost nothing except dedicated AA can shoot at VTOLs, and that VTOL bombs and VTO...

Re: http://wz2100.net broken

Other pages on the site seem to work, such as http://wz2100.net/news/ — it's just the main page that mysteriously goes to an Apache2 page, even though Apache2 isn't running (although it mysteriously starts up by itself occasionally, and has to be killed again). :shock:

Re: Multiplayer not supported for 3.3.0?

See bottom where it says "Last hosted game was 0 hours, 2 mins, and 48 secs ago.". Number of games varies depending on time of day. If possible, you can try hosting yourself, if noone else is.

Re: How do you rotate a graphical model?

Setting archangel to 5 or changing ripple rockets to homing-indirect and setting to 5 should work, though. Plain indirect artillery gets a minimum speed due to being affected by gravity, but needing to be able to reach the target.

Good if you can read it, maybe soon you can write it too. Not many people can speak it, though. The spoken form is rather weird.

Re: I cannot configure, make or minstall none version of Warzone on Linux!

Oh, wait, by stuck in a loop, you mean it gets in a loop where it compiles lots of files, until it runs out of files to compile? Not that it gets stuck on one file forever? If so, that actually happens with lots of packages. Pretty much all of them, actually. Depending on the CPU, 20 minutes isn't r...
