  1. @FunkyFr3sh Thanks for this, the tournament has finished. 

    My take away from these tournaments:

    The P4 tournament was done over 2 weeks, had more entries and stronger competition, but took a lot of admin chasing players up to play their games!

    The Ribbon tournament was done in a few hours with group stages so much easier to organise, but half the players didn't turn up.


  2. The end result is a split decision here, however, due to the following factors the tournament must go on!

    - New registrations have not been received

    - The tournament should finish this weekend

    - I received  more "No this is weird" votes in total via youtube and the lobby, than are displayed here.

    Croboys plays Robskate in the semis!

    Thanks for your participation in this poll.

  3. Hi guys,

    I'm new to organizing tournaments and would like to put this to a vote.

    Some players are upset because they missed registration, so I put them on a waiting list. Players have now pulled out of the first round. Is it fair to allow new players into the first round? Note some 2nd round games have been played. Here are the results:

    Cheers!

  5. Hi all,

    I'm developing a red alert training map (2 players vs ai), but can't work out how to allow "ally in game" with the a button. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Currently, players must choose the same team. Then if they accidentally hit the ally button, they can't ally back again.

    Thanks!

  6. Sounds good Grant. Credit where credit's due, you guys have done a great job on cncnet! :) I have already donated, but would donate more for a clan ladder.

    May I suggest a slightly different plan order:

    1. Set up a gofundme page for the clan ladder with a ball park target

    2. When the target is reached, advertise for a developer (consider upwork.com)

    I have a mobile app developer from upwork.com working for $10 an hour, doing a great job. The process was:

    1. Create a job advert (100s will apply)

    2. Weed out the lower rated developers

    3. Video interview 5 developers and select based on experience and testimonials

    4. Create fixed price project, payable upon completion

    When you find good reliable staff, you can use them for other projects so you don't have to go through the interview process again.

    I am happy to assist with this.

    Regards

  7. Mr Holland,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the subject, something which this week I have been considering.

    I agree with almost all of what you said, but some readers might understand that playing the game will help them reclaim consciousness, which is false IMHO. I am arguing here that playing the game with an untrained mind creates more attachments, which lead to emotions and therefore losing consciousness. Because lets be fair here, the aim of the game is to win, which is inherently an ego attachment.

    That said, it is certainly a challenge for the more aware to not become emotionally attached to the game, be it losing, winning or anything else which reinforces the ego. Personally and recently, as I begin to better understand the words you write, I am more inclined to think that more time spent doing anapana or breathe awareness and less time in competition is the way forward. I argued this with my ultra competitive swimming friend last night, but he couldn't understand. He gave up meditating after 1 month, and instead believes that he IS his achievements.

    Since your mind creates your reality, to improve your reality you need to start with your mind.

  8. Likewise great idea photon, thanks for putting the work in. I'd love to see my favourite childhood game take off into the egaming pro leagues. I'll help by testing the effectiveness of facebook ads, something I've done a lot with selling t-shirts. And anything else I can help with, let me know.

    Very cool :-)

    I found myself in 2001. I guess I played a lot that year. Highest place I could find #12.

    Playing: path, island wars and sometimes nxnw.
    Remember that many of the pros used different names to gather points and than donated the points to themselves. So usually the top5 was full of cheaters :D 

    Yeh some top guys were no doubt cheating like that, and d/c too. I mostly played path back in '97 for a year.

    Looking at Steeldart's ranking pic there, interesting to see Jjfjr at only 10 in the rankings with 9 losses, because he would go on to be 1 of the strongest ever according to Milo: "JJFjr proved himself to be better than everyone else still playing, beating me 8 to 1 in 1v1s and pretty much devastating the rest of the competition". But that was before cncnet came along, so wonder how he'd do now. Does he even know the game is back up and running? 


  10. Hey Funky and friends, how you doing? I've got a computer issue, if there's too much action in game e.g. too many units, the game lags (not in a jumpy way like connection lag, but a slow and smooth decrease in game speed). Do you know what I should be fixing? I have an intel core i3, 4gb ram, dell laptop standard  graphics card. Is my computer just to slow :O

    Cheers
