Re: Script porting to Javascript

As far as I know, all numeric values in JavaScript are floats anyway, and floats can represent multiples of 1/128 with perfect accuracy, so I don't think using tile coords will be a problem precision-wise.

Re: 2.3.8 has been released!

I mean, if we can load maps just-in-time, why can't we load mods without restarting the app? ;) We can, and we do (you can drag a mod to autoload while Warzone is open, and it will be loaded upon game start - and will kick you for cheating if you try that in an MP game). We just don't have a framew...

Re: Mortar/howitzer/artillery tanks Rotation.

I've heard a lot of balance suggestions regarding making mortars more useful in the later-game, but I've never understood why...

Scourge outclasses Lancer/TK. Gauss Cannon outclasses HC. Is there any reason why howitzers shouldn't outclass mortars?

Re: "Risk" /Basic Version for Newbies and Time-limited peopl

I believe if we stop at, for example, HMGs, cannons, minipods and flamers, it's possible to ultimately balance up the endgame by varying the number of upgrades available for them. Way back in 1.00, T2 and T3 didn't exist yet. The tech tree only went up to: - MG, TMG, HMG - LC, MC, HC - Minipod, MRA...

Re: Hosting muliplayer games

You must port-forward to host Warzone from behind a NAT; wireless networks generally use NATs.

There's a link to a port forwarding guide in the FAQ: http://guide.wz2100.net/faq#ports

There are ways around this, but they're fairly difficult and no one on the development team has that kind of time.

Re: Multiplayer release master-20110320 is now released!

Build time is a damn important part of the game balance; if it were consciously changed, you'd have heard about it. So this is either a bug or an illusion. I'm guessing if they were out of power, all the timings would change, and for a casual player they might not realize this. Yet another of a lon...

We don't have an official cheater blacklist, because it's difficult to say for sure whether or not someone is cheating.

Re: Concerning the limited map size and how to use it better

Every single RTS in existence has unusually unrealistic scale, and this translates to larger-than-life units and structures. Real wars have a tendency of taking several years, and if you put a tank and what it's shooting at on a computer screen, they would pretty much be just dots. RTSes change the ...

Keep note that all dedicated AA weapons, including Flak Cannon, get the AT damage type.

Re: 2.3.8 Balance change

I haven't picked apart the .wz file to know for sure, but none of these changes look like they should affect templates, assignweapons, or names.

I always liked the scanlines in 1.10. We should add them back. I notice the main reason that patch wasn't committed was because of the subtitle thing? Shouldn't the subtitles have a dark background to compensate for that?
