oh cool! what is the procedure for making maps count towards the ladder btw? i know babyshark got those 2 maps added but i'm still fuzzy on how it's done, are the puds themselves modded in some way?

They have to have an identifier changed that makes them shown as "blizzard" maps... not sure how it's done.

What are the maps, Qanon?

Maybe run them by the community before unilaterally sneaking them into the ladder map pool

I didn't download it because it was on an annoying looking download site haha.  But I'll download it now.

However, we intentionally designed the ladder to have it count only Blizzard maps because those are maps of a certain type (BNE style) and they are known.  We didn't want maps Jordan made after fingering his anus to count. 

When you tamper with your map metadata to "trick" the ladder, you're bypassing our design.  I'm not saying your maps aren't good or that we would never want some extra maps in the pool.  That could be fine... but just adding 20 at once without checking is taking it a bit far, you know?

I could prolly name like 20 trash bne maps on the ladder list that don't get played tho or half of them are not even playable I don't even think they knew how this game would turn out when they made these maps .. tho they all do take different stratagies the maps I make are more based off a gow game play .. even if its water or what not.. its pretty llegit

i do like the initiative to add new maps to the ladder if they're getting played enough, seems like all that's needed is a quick once over to make sure any candidate isn't a complete dog shit map :D strata has made a ton of nice looking maps & spend a lot of time active on the server playing them, i support giving them some recognition on the ladder!

Yeah D&C is a fun BNE style map :thumbsup:
I'd be happy to see that included.

... while we're on the subject have any of the more popular Nedro maps been officially included as ladder maps yet?

yeah im happy to have divide & conquer included as a ladder map if people like it... and if nobody finds any serious flaws in it

Maybe we could announce like one new ladder map a month and see if that gets the new map played on.  Could be a fun map designing competition type thing where the stakes are getting your map into the ladder pool.

FAKE NEWS.
sike, TL;DR
wwg1wga

i had the best gow remake     (i also ran the most successfull solo ladder on .ru((i also troll thrown losses in a team ladder coz they used a different platform and it was not gonna make it anyways(((decap still hate me for it)))  (my best trolling was allstar..from mad to rage to lul)

kept it classic, and made 6/8 like 12/2 with minor changes

combat edition is not complete untill my buddies custom voices are added, proper music is added, and my GOW CE (combat edition) are added.

if my demands are met i will get a high profile/blizzard influencal guy to give us some publicity

its so hard to just choooseee 1 tho!! when there is sooo many maps in that pack with great potential for ladder games... even some wc3 remakes
id rather do like 5 every 6 months or something thatll be cool I think we should patch the whole game with new ddraws an map packs every 6 months that would be amazing also I been tryinh yo get some 1 to code a ddraw where u can see the game map after DL insdie the game lobby fois and a few others said it was possible!!

got to be like:

PUDPICs1024j90.exe
's' size
'j' jpeg quality

It hasn't been tested in a UNICODE environment - not sure if that will change the way it reads the filename, but I think it should work if you use that name.

or if your system hides the ".exe" so you just see "PUDPIC" then just name it PUDPICs1024j90





look how awesome this would beeeee XD … come on some 1s gotta have the skills to do thisssssss

Yeah that does look good.... one day lol. Maybe next easter ;)

There is no reason why your maps shouldn't be considered, but you need to make that happen.

Hint: don't start by calling someone else's thread "bs crap"

Try starting by HOSTING your maps and giving people the opportunity to play them and decide if they like them or not. Just a suggestion.

i think one good thing with adding only one at a time though is that it will (possibly) get people focused on that one map for a period, and get it played more and get people more familiar with it, than if multiple maps were added at once and attention was spread.

But then the other maps you have could still be added the next time we add a map.

this is a great idea!

so maybe at the start of each month we start a thread for new map submissions, maybe advertise it w/ a banner on the server for a few days, then have a vote at the end of the month after people have a chance to play them all? or alternative suggestions? only concern is the low # of people who will probably participate in a vote, though maybe if we advertise it well that would pick up

so is Divide & Conquer officially "IN" now? seems like a great map w/ plenty of people vouching for it. :thumbsup: and then we can kick off the first open competition at the start of October
