Re: TDTT post moretum

Another concern I wanted to point out, which is common to both TDTT and TDTV - there are no tasks, mind games and surprises for players. Basically it became just a common competitive 1v1/2v2 tournament with shroud. Original TDT had so much more in this regard. I'm not even talking about minigames (I...

Re: TDTT post moretum

Yep, double elimination bo1 was indeed a good solution. As just discussed with Odourless on another matter, each player (and each team) should have at least one additional chance to stay in the tournament, and that better be other opponent, so Single Elimination schemes don't provide as much fun and...

Re: Bridge sprites for the editor

There are sprites for long diagonal bridges, you need to combine several different tiles for it and then use the middle one as extension. The ones you're showing on the screenshots are river crossing bridges and those have a fixed length. Upd: There was work by MustaphaTR on making all other types o...

This is already supported? FiveAces posts videos with it since forever: viewtopic.php?p=312675#p312675

You just need to put stripped id there, not the whole link.

Re: RAGL Season 10 Weekly Highlights

Nice work, thanks. Glad to see this is kept going. I might even watch some of these myself :D
Unfortunately, the rules for match scheduling only made the continuity of such endeavor worse as Masters games aren't played until the end of the season...

Re: More Expensive Units for Dune (dk2)

Even better solution would be to make such pricewars.yaml file, add it into a map (oramap is a zip archive), add "Rules: pricewars.yaml" line at the end of map.yaml file. You'll be able to use this map on a release version of the game, and it will be valid for further releases as well, as long as th...

Re: Updating RA Official Map Pool

As the latest person to update the official map pool, I guess I should note, that there are two important points that should be considered and that will likely invalidate a lot of (seemingly good) intentions above: 1. You can't increase the map count to infinity, because it is made a part of distrib...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 9 - Post Season Discussion

Just dropping a 5c on top of what was already said above. Sadly, the league scheduling format idea I've pitched in previous post-season discussion thread was overlooked this season. Maybe worth having a second look for the next one. Also, I still think if the league is to be self-running, Rulebook s...

Re: Can host a game: Mac OS

Your ISP may (and usually does) implement NAT with dynamic IPs, which doesn't allow explicit outside connections like OpenRA sets up, because there is one or several relays on the route between your local system and outside world that can't be punched through. You'd need either an explicit static IP...

Re: RA Sea balance

@Hodor [I'd answer to PM via PM, but you have that disabled in your account so I can't send you messages :P] wonder why i cant find a big balance threat for RA. Is nobody else unhappy with that? I'd say mostly balance talks happen in Official Discord now and then fall into Github PR directly. So if ...

Re: United Conquer Cup - OpenRA Series by United Forum

Apparently ZxGanon didn't highlight his stream, so his PoV is no longer available.

Kaution has uploaded some of the streamed matches to his youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcrKDh ... X6g/videos

MLRS is (and IIRC always was) a GDI unit.

Re: Renegade 2D (Tiberian Dawn game mode)

@cubesquare check OpenRA Discord where you can gather people to play the mod, there are occasional callouts for it.
