    So, I’m one of the only real pics not from kids trying to pick on NetPoon?

    LOL….funny, since I’ve been here weeks now and never seen one of you in battle. 😈

    Come battle….unless you have become complacent and tired in yer nearly-abandonware Vet-Ness.

    Give a Newb a chance for glory. 😉

    And, a future for your game. It’s dying, admit it.
    My game is nearly dead, after 14 years..it’s nearly dead. Let me save you.

    WITH WAR!!

    Yeah, I cross posted….so sorry…mebbe I’l wake you buggers up.

    QUIT TALKING…START FLIPPIN’ PLAYING!!!!!!’

    EVERY DAY. PLAY.

    NO PEOPLE EQUALS NO PEOPLE. THEY WON”T JOIN UNLESS THEY SEEEEEE OTHER PEOPLE. BOTS ARE FUKING BORING.

    I’ve checked servers, every day..and no humans seem to ever play this awesome game. WTF?

    it’s all about the OOBE. i’ve noticed as many new players joining the servers as there ever were in recent years (unless it’s old players with new names). the trick is getting them to stick around.

    the problem is this, the way i see it. s3d just isnt as good in its current stock form as it was in the v41 days. ive mentioned this in a previous post. i dont know why it’s not as good – it’s a number of things. and as a disclaimer, im aware of the good stuff and changes to the engine (v43 is far superior to any prior, behind the scenes).

    if im right, i think we need the old-school players to help place ‘why’.

    i could make a short list to start:

    the explosion textures arent what they were
    some of the sound effects arent as good (i think) e.g. sand hogs
    some of the new server-side changes have introduced a bit of lag
    weapon explosions no longer affect water

    the server settings on main need tweaking, which is instant, and there’s no apoc server/primary showcase mod.

    the main problem is the lag/delay – im pretty sure it’s not my end.

    quad – i get you, trying to rile people : ). ‘come and have a fight’.

    taking your post at face value… you’re missing a trick with that ‘nearly-abandonware’ nonsense. scorche3d was open source and independent from the beginning. the lifespan and development timelines that apply to large corporations with a profit incentive dont apply here.

    indie games are on the up, and there’s no reason we shouldnt see popularity increase if we fix what’s broken. if it’s fun, people will play. build it and they will come, as they say.

    ps:
    there’s nothing wrong with a bit of netpoon, far as i know. and no, this isnt a war game. it’s a fun, arcade, old-school worms genre classic, with some cool explosions and priceless retro heritage.

    Aite, mebbe I was a tad heavy-handed there, but I didn’t mean dev was absent…players are.

    In the absence of players, there really is no game. Nor a need for dev. That’s what I mean by abandoned. Why work on a game nobody plays?

    I’m on at weird hours, usually late/early PST. Just racked up some moar ranks beating bots though. 😈

    I’m up to like 24 rank according to the in-game ranks, and have yet to ever see a player in Main. :sad boosh:
