All jokes aside,
I’d like to believe it was just dirt and not a foreign substance. As you know, foreign substances on the pitcher’s hand are illegal. Anyway, Wasn’t he still pitching no-hitters after he wiped the dirt off?
I’m a Boston RedSox fan so, in this case, I’m rooting for the underdog. Cardinals have already won quite a few World Series. They are only 2nd in championship wins to the Evil Empire, otherwise known as the Yankees.
So, go Tigers!
Its probably to do with the options wx-windows was compiled with/against. If you do an ldd on both what graphics libraries are they using?

Actually, I think his name was D0de.
Sorry about that
Okay, I think maybe I understand what your asking about, Willis. In a comparison between your screenshots of Version 39.1 and 40.0, Version 39.1 looks cleaner and refined, especially with the column headers. I’ll take a wild guess that maybe this had something to do with libqt (??) or other GUI dependancies that were used to compile Scorched3d before it was packaged.
I use Kubuntu, which is the same as Ubuntu except my desktop suite is KDE and yours is Gnome. Anyway, I’ve only seen and run Scorched3d in Linux and I don’t know what all the Scorched3d files are for so my perspective on this may be a little strange…
I found my ids.xml file in my /home//.scorched3d/ directory so that’s probably where yours should be.
Your Server-Select window looks identical to mine. Isn’t that how it should look? I usually maximize the window and resize the column widths.
I never paid much attention to the client logging feature. If the feature is supposed to save all your “talk” data to a file, then I guess I never bothered with it. One thing I noticed is the Next, Previous, and End Of Log buttons are just little buttons…You have to mouse over them to see the label. Is that how its supposed to be?
If you want, you can install the Debian package that’s included on the Scorched3d website instead of converting the RPM to a deb package. The only reason I converted the RPM to DEB is because I was getting an error message on Scorched3d exit…For some reason, the converted DEB package solved that. See http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3433&highlight=
Here are some screenshots showing how my game looks:
Thanks all for your feedback. Savage – Battle for Newerth also uses the voting system described above. It works very well for muting players. Also, vote spammers usually get vote-kicked or vote-muted from the server. I’ve noticed that some of the potential issues you mentioned do exist, such as voting “yes” for the hell of it when one spiteful player decides to initiate a vote-kick…However in Savage, each team has upwards of 20-30 players, many of whom don’t know all that’s going on.
Thanks. Direwolf’s server seems to work well. Madman’s works but I guess I need to register for talk access. I’ll keep them both.
I swear by Teamspeak and have always used it (or Ventrilo on Windows XP). I will probably never try Skype because I’ve read many bad things about it. Some people prefer Skype (mainly because it doesn’t require a server) so I guess TS will never be used universally by everyone on SC3d. I’d be happy if even just a small number of us use it. It enhances gameplay quite a bit.
Oh No!! Its a discussion on politics and diplomacy. Must…resist….urge to…….reply. Okay, screw it. This is what I think:
Isreal had a right to defend itself because they are constantly fighting for their right to exist (It is not as if they are fighting for more land, money or oil nor are they fighting a religious crusade). Having said that, I think Isreal has gone a little too far by revenge killing on some occasions.
George “Dubya” Bush is an idiot and the majority of Americans think he’s doing a poor job as president and as Commander in Chief. He used to be an alcoholic and allegedly, a drug user (He left the National Guard in his youth to avoid a drug test). He’s argueably a failed entrepreneur in all of his past and present business ventures. He’s a born again Christian who thinks he’s above everyone and everything. His view on “Globalization” is arguably killing the American “middle class dream”. His plan to “spread Democracy” is argueably a front for his failed plan to get cheaper oil from the mideast. Some reguard him as the worst US President since Howard Taft or Ulysses Grant. I could go on and on. Having said that, I feel I have the right as an American to badmouth my own president but it is insulting to us when outsiders say anything equally bad or worse about Bush or blame Americans for what is happening abroad. That’s my 2 cents.
Yes on 1
On 2, he didn’t answer “no”. In fact, he didn’t answer at all.
Not sure on 3 but its suspicious that this player used all his cash on a Death’s Head and then left immediately after using it (he didn’t even finish 1 round). I’m not asking that this player be banned. After all, I never saw him before and he may have misunderstood (maybe there was a language barrier). However, if he continues to do this, aren’t his intentions clear enough?
I’d like to suggest in-game player voting for the next version of Scorched3d. See my thread:
I’ve seen 1-2 players violate this trust which can be frustrating for a beginner like me.
Case in point: Today I was on the Beginner Server as usual. At the start of each round I make sure players all agree on “AI First” if the map is mostly AI. A new round started with an unfamiliar player (who I will not name) joining the game…He used most of his initial $30k to buy a Death’s Head. Then on the third move, He fired the Death’s Head directly at me, killing me. Immediately after my initial comment of “WTF??? I said AI First!”, he disconnected. To me, that’s griefing. I’m not sure what to do about it….gotta suck it up I guess, unless we start an official blacklist or add in-game “kick”/”ban” voting to the next version of Scorched3d.

LOL. Sounds something like Sims Online.
But the sad thing is… “they killed him” .. big woop.. he respawns, grabs the sword (note Stan just threw it off to the side).. then pwns EVERYTHING![/quote]
Well, maybe after being pOWNED at the end of a 17+ hour battle, he had a nervous breakdown and quit WoW. I failed to notice that Stan threw the Sword of a Thousand Truths to the side. Anyway, the story could go on and on but it was just one episode.
I’ve never used Skype but I’ve heard lots of bad things about it. I have however used both Ventrilo (on Windows XP) and Teamspeak. Of the two, I prefer Teamspeak because clients are available for both M$ Windoze and Linux (and Mac too, I think) and because there are fewer restrictions on # of clients connected to Teamspeak servers.
BTW, if there is a Scorched3d Teamspeak server, I’d love to join.
seems to be down
Anyone who is playing scorched knows i am love skype as well as the game. its cool to talk to people all over the world.
ok guys, call me a cheater from now on.
Why use Skype? Its proprietary and I’ve heard alot of bad things about it and the company that makes it. If you want to use VoIP while in the game, why not use applications that were meant for gaming like Ventrilo…or better yet, TEAMSPEAK because Teamspeak is cross-platform. Both apps use very little bandwidth but there are fewer restrictions on the # of clients that can connect to Teamspeak servers. If anyone has or wants to start a Scorched3d Teamspeak server, sign me up.
Regarding rules: I’m new to the game so I play exclusively on the Beginner Server. The only rules I’ve come across so far are AI (Bots) First or AIF since AI seem to rank highest on that server. Its a spoken agreement but unfortunately, I’ve seen 1-2 players violate this trust which can be frustrating for a beginner like me. To all the other players: Thanks for walking me through the “how-to’s” for this game which I am still a relative newbie at.
