dont spam your scale, everyone want to be in the list.  :chuckisthemuscle:

Wasn't spamming, added swaig to the list, forgot to do him yesterday.
Yeah I would love to see other people post their spb rating, but I'm not doing them all.


i eard warbux and il are working for a reset on the ladder and they are gonna doing different season every 3 months.

Im pretty sure we can make a selection of map, add it to the ladder selection and for next season we change the map.

But always considering Garden of war is the map we cant change.

Playing 25 different maps at the same time its just non sens and going no where.

Yeah I think being able to play on any map is important, but too many maps lets people study some almost unknown map then choose that map which defeats the purpose, so perhaps there should be a balance.

THAT IS GEWD. ALSO I HOP SOMETIME THERS NO GOW IN IT

haha yeah that would be fun ;D (never going to happen)

The same for War1. This allows to avoid back tiles layer redrawing every time. Also as I remember this feature is used for building frame coloring.

OK. I've never looked at the war1 code. "Smacker" which is the video format used for the into, campaign cutscenes and channel banner ads also uses 8-bit palette animation heavily.


For what? Playing again gow and again? Boring, most of this players from list know only one map

You cant even rush, i dont even know why im arguing with you  :ok_hand:

You can beat Lambchops using Flame Shield only for damage

Yeah eq probably could, but you can't beat shit cos you're just an imaginary forum smurf name talking about some other game that looks like it hosts the tony awards. Go play it and use their forum too :thumbsup:

Cool... so you made a new macro after I noticed the glitch in the old one then? Nice job mate ;)

I need to get in on some of that MAD action next time, looks like fun  :newthumbsup:
POTHETIC ACCUSATIONS
WHY IS IT BEYOND UR UNDERSTANDING THAT SOME PPL CAN BE ACTUALLY GOOD AND KWIK AT W2. I AM THE CUSTOM MAPS CHAMPION AND MY CAREER IS WELL DOKUMENTED
UR CHOP MAD BOT IS GEWD FOR PRACTICE (FOR ACTUAL PLAYERS) IDK WHY U GETTIN SO PERSONAL OVER THE FACT THAT I WREKD IT


Awww geez mate, not getting personal, I didn't even mention the fact that you dodged and logged as soon as you won ;) but LMK next time you're playing some, I'm down.

BTW: Do you know your caps lock is on?

Well if you want to make your own thread, i suppose you will be able to do the scale you want.

I'm here at your invitation.

Tell me if your down or not with my list and dont forget to show me yours!






I dont know why everytime we want to judge a player level we use spb as reference.  ???
He has kinda become the benchmark between good and bad. If you can beat SPB consistently that means your good I guess

that meaannssss SPB IS THE GATEKEEPER …… spb 1v1???? O.o.. think im ready to ascend!


The SPB Scale knows all! There is no hiding from it. There is no denying it. The new order has begun!  :stuck_out_tongue: :ok_hand:

Read my title, this list is about the last 2 month, juin, july. Nothing to do with old records.

Yeah, but my list is much more fun :critter:

Do that list again with the link i give you  :omg:

Old records you say? That account hasn't been used in 8 years...

I stand by the SPB scale as the new standard in precision measurement of WC2 player skill.

I can't say but one person is in three different groups
`

Yeah after about the first 50 I gave up on adding all his smurf names to the DB ;D

That order seems pretty random THB... like ladder shows earth 3-0 vs slient

max.x vs cancel looks like about 70% wins for max (211 games didn't count them)


... but I wouldn't want to try making a list like that. So I propose a new scale. I'm calling it the SPB scale


steve vs spb 19/2    90%
sepi vs spb   41/7    83%
sg vs spb     36/22   62%
eq vs spb     11/10   52%
Max vs spb     9/9    50%
ripe vs spb  .... there's 389 of them I'm not counting ... looks like about 50%
wg vs spb     11/15  42%
tk vs spb      34/95  26%
tora vs spb     1/5    16%
farts vs spb     0/4     0%  ( dude better play spb some more! )

can you see where I'm going with this?


     HINT: SPB is Kevin Bacon IRL <---

                             PALETTE ANIMATION

I have idly wondered more than one about the neat water animation you see in WC2 on the coastlines. It's something I would have expected to have tripped over in the exe when looking for something else, but never have.

Turns out thats because its done with palette animation, which is pretty amazing considering how good it looks. Next time you're in game, have a look at the coast then remember that no pixels are changing at all, its just the palette.

I noticed this when messing around with changing the in-game unit graphics... some of the bits that were supposed to be brown kept turning blue, so I replaced the great hall graphics with a 128x128 palette grid and discovered that quite a bit of the wc2 palette is animated in-game. Most of it is for water effects plus entry 3 just flashes from green to red and back - which is obviously the color it uses for a unit that is being attacked on the mini-map.



The palette animation doesn't show up in warvid. Anybody ever noticed your units don't flash red on the minimap in warvid? Twitch mostly picks it up.

Anyway you can see what's going on in the attached vid, if anyone's interested.

BTW yes I am still working on an updated plugin framework...

« on: July 21, 2019, 10:44:09 AM »
Can Ragner beat Yamon? If he were to beat Yamon or Ogremage more players would take him seriously.

Ragner deserves his shot at the title.

Is there some other queue of people waiting to challenge?

You shouldn't get to sit at the top of the ladder and refuse a challenge that has been going on this long.

Sorry Sepi but IMO 1 ladder game in 2 months is not active enough to sit at #1.

niceee adding it now .. can u  make a plug in to change the colors on min map lol

Like what u mean? Yeah there's the allied colors one... and this one I use to make black visible on the MM.

It just makes black a lighter shade of grey so you don't miss it.

Here's a cool thing I just bumped into while looking for something else (which is often the way it goes with reverse engineering).

This little plugin makes the mini-map refresh 4x faster so it displays troop movements smoothly. Looks much better IMO. Enjoy :)

-- edit --

:( this is making some of my stuff flash red like its being attacked for no reason

:) ok fixed that all good.

Oh and by the way and I do very much appreciate those that do contribute and manage this game/community. Your idea on this front is just bad though. Sorry if you dont want to hear it but most active / good players will agree. Focus your attention on enhancements that the consensus would agree upon...

The vast majority of people I talk to seem to like my stuff, not including random smurfs, and for all I know they could all be the same person.

"just bad" is an opinion, your opinion is noted (again lol). Please feel free to contribute reasoned argument.

The only person who has managed to do that so far is szwagier

richer? cause you need click on enemy unit to check HP?
for example there are TWO lvl 5 grunts in your base and you got 10 peons mining in gold mine, one grunt got 10 hp, second grunt got 60hp, if you dont check hp for check his hp and u start focus random you got 50% to loss all peons, but if you attack grunt with hp, few peons can survive

Now player will see it
With that you will change game play to ignore more rush, just more focus to lust than now

He was talking about a potential health display, and argued that it could move the focus of ef games away from early grunts and towards powering.

I disagreed and gave a reason (not that my reasoning is necessarily any more valid than his).

But at least he managed to give a concisely reasoned argument without banging on with a bunch of subjective emotional rubbish designed to attempt to sway public opinion and make people think improvements are unprolike. Problem with that is there isn't enough public here to sway.

"Consesus", "active" ... says smurf name #581 pfffff.

U8 pwns you all again. Get your shit together or stop wasting my time.
