Ladder - Change log

Recommended Posts

So a few important changes to note.

  • Players do not "lose" points if they have lost a game, they simply gain a smaller margin of points. 
    The theory is to eliminate the ethic of bad sportsmanship and rage quitting when losing. If you lose you're guaranteed some points.
     
  • Ladder design will always be evolving and remember everything you see is never finished. However we're scrapping the traditional table view you see so much in ladders. 
    Reason being it's too common, it's not inline with what we do here. We're pushing boundaries and want a somewhat unique experience to competitive C&C to entice as many players as possible.
     
  • Additional game stats introduced  
    Including and not limited to:
    • Player Colour
    • Player Faction
    • Player Credits
    • Player Infantry, Planes, Buildings Left
    • Player Units, Infantry, Planes, Buildings Bought
    • Player Units, Infantry, Planes, Buildings Destroyed
       
  • Current Game information stored:
    • Superweapons
    • Crates
    • Credits
    • Duration
    • MCV Redeploy
    • Build of Ally Conyard
    • Average FPS
    • Reconnection Error Flag
    • Unit Count Start
    • Players in Game
    • Map / Scenario
       
  • Game Scenarios 
    The different game scenarios of win/lose will require testing again to see if the code implemented catches disconnects, quitting etc.

 

For the additional game stats we've now got I would like to give a huge thanks to tomsons26 and dkeeton for helping me with the parsing and testing.
 

What's next?

  • Re-testing of the game scenarios , keep playing games, report anything unusual.  
  • A look into how we can handle Reconnection errors. 
  • On going UI changes and ladder code.



 

On another note thank you all for your testing so far and for being patient.

Badges

Just added a first pass at basic badges based on rank currently. I'll make a page in a moment so you can see what badges are available. 

public function badge($rank)
    {
        switch ($rank)
        {
            case $rank >= 0 && $rank <= 50:
                return "rank-01-e2 badge-0";
            case $rank > 50 && $rank <= 100:
                return "rank-01-e3 badge-1";
            case $rank > 100 && $rank <= 200:
                return "rank-01-e4 badge-2";
            case $rank > 200 && $rank <= 300:
                return "rank-01-e5 badge-2";
            case $rank > 300 && $rank <= 400:
                return "rank-01-e6 badge-3";
            case $rank > 500 && $rank <= 600:
                return "rank-01-e7 badge-3";
            case $rank > 600 && $rank <= 700:
                return "rank-01-e8 badge-4";
            case $rank > 600 && $rank <= 700:
                return "rank-01-e8-1 badge-4";
            case $rank > 700 && $rank <= 800:
                return "rank-01-e8-2 badge-4";
            case $rank > 700 && $rank <= 800:
                return "rank-01-e9-1 badge-5";
            case $rank > 700 && $rank <= 800:
                return "rank-01-e9-2 badge-5";
            case $rank > 800 && $rank <= 900:
                return "rank-01-e9-2 badge-6";
            case $rank > 900 && $rank <= 1000:
                return "rank-01-e9-3 badge-6";
            case $rank > 1000 && $rank <= 1500:
                return "rank-02-00-e4 badge-7";
            case $rank > 1500 && $rank <= 2000:
                return "rank-02-00-e5 badge-7";
            case $rank > 2000 && $rank <= 2500:
                return "rank-02-00-e6 badge-7";
            case $rank > 2000 && $rank <= 2500:
                return "rank-02-00-e7 badge-7";
            case $rank > 3000:
                return "rank-02-00-e9-01 badge-8";
            default: "rank-03-e2";
        }
    }

We could look at it differently too, open to ideas on what. You could base badges on X, Y, Z and build up a score. 

Very rough look at badges (Colours will be changed): https://staging.cnc-comm.com/ladder/yr/badges

So far it looks like that yeah.

Points:

  • Only 1vs1 Games should now count
  • Points no longer stored on username, and stored on a player_points table - allows easy management of games and points.

Admin panel:

  • As of currently, shows a list of all the games per ladder, and allows you to delete. Deleting a game removes all associated ladder_games, player_games, player_points records.

      Hi,
      just down-loaded the Command & Conquer game, looks good when opening, the old skool music starts yet when trying to play/start a new skirmish it will not allow me to proceed. I'm running a windows 10, latest update, plenty of ram. Anything I am missing?
    • By JUDY

      My Client sounds stopped working , i.e the beep when joining games and when changing settings or getting a personal message,
      Any suggestions as to how to fix please?
      Thanks.

      This is a command line tool that allows you to add or subtract two INI files. This probably sounds strange, but it's really handy. When you subtract two INI files, the result is the difference between them. When you add two INI files, the result is the combination of them. Note that you can turn/ copy paste any file (map,mpr etc) into an INI file. 
      As a map maker you easily use the same mods you've used before, so what I've done is I saved every mod that i used a lot, in a seperate INI file. So that you can use the software called XCC_INI_CLT, to easily add it in your map. Just so there is no hassle of listing the mod in its appropriate list, like every new building needs to be listed under [BuildingTypes],  same for new/cloned infantry, vehicles, warheads, animations, and triggers, actions, events, tags, teamtypes and so on... Its just so much easier to use this software whenever you have an idea for a map, and even add or subtract the basic things like Auto-Ally, Free Radar, Reveal map, Giants mods etc. This trick is very do-able, even if you're a modding noob, i recommend you to still give this a shot
      Note: This tutorial explains an alternate way to add mods to your map, no coding/modding skill required. The reason I don't wanna tag this topic is because the software can be used for all games that have editable INI files. So if you're a mod maker you can do the same thing and make separate files for your mods, and use this software to add/subtract them. Mods i added in this topic however, are for CnCnet Tiberian Sun.
      Maker of XCC Utilities, Olaf van der Spek created this around 2002 i believe, and its still handy to this day. Here is the original tutorial: https://xhp.xwis.net/utilities/XCC_INI_CLT.html Original download: https://xhp.xwis.net/utilities/XCC_INI_CLT.zip
      HOW IT WORKS
      First a simple explanation how it works. If you want to add mods in your map, first copy paste the content (all the codes) of your map, into an INI file. (CTRL A= select all, CTRL+C=Copy, CTRL+V is Paste) You can use an empty INI file i included in the pack. Give it a short name.
      This little program needs to be in the same folder with the ini files that you like to add or subtract, so make sure the software file is in there

      then you need to open command prompt. You can do that with your windows search, or in Start> Programs, or to press Windows Button + R, type: CMD and press enter.

      Now you gotta navigate to the folder with the software and ini files in them. To do that, Type CD and follow with the folder path (just copy and paste), and press enter so for example like this:
       
       
      Now, like in the original tutorial, type the software name XCC_INI_CLT follow with the files you want to add. It works like this: File1 + File2 = File3, so the File 3 will be both files added up. So how i like to do it is mymap.ini + autoally.ini mymap.ini  This way the mapfile will have the autoally added. So you type:
      XCC_INI_CLT mymap.ini + autoally.ini mymap.ini
      and press enter, and add all the mods you want, like this:
       
       
      Now just Copy the content of the INI file, back into the map file, and you got all the mods in your map 
      I've used this first for bigger mod projects and merging art.ini and rules.ini, but i figured since there are so many mods, we can use it this way as well. I will keep adding mods to this topic, Since we have fan made mods uploaded to the cncnet client in TS, this will be a great way to add them to your map. I have not organized all the mods I have in the attached rar file, they are very messy right now. I will update and edit these files as i gather more stuff.

      I have problem with C&Cnet client using mods all force native screen resolution witch is 3840x2160 and i cant change it since it reverts manual change in ini file back to native and only way i can use custom screen resolution is by making ini read only. I add pictures of my problem i only hope that there is a way to fix this.
