Well, just a few days ago I got asked by someone (Wowbagger maybe?… not sure) why I was targetting them first all the time.
My response is always the same if I get asked: “because you are winning (or in a position to beat me to win the game) and I just want to make sure you don’t”, followed by “you haven’t done anything / I’m not mad at you / it’s nothing personal”.
This becomes increasingly obvious, too, when there are fewer players on the map (4-6) versus a full map of 10-12.
Anyway, perhaps the best approach is to ask what their problem is, and then maybe an admin can intervene if it’s because the targetting player is being an ass? Or maybe it’s a situation similar to mine, and is nothing personal.
I have also seen people constantly target the people who are ranked just below them to try and move up in rank.
is that bad? not really sure?
I dunno Dire, perhaps it’s the attitude while this is happening??
Wow Wolfie, it’s a great start! Love the banner too!
BTW, is that a real model? If so, I NEED it!!!
I hear that, I don’t know what has gotten in to AT but this doesn’t even seem like the same person anymore.
I know what you mean… my personal experience of him until a few manths ago was that he was quiet and laid back.
But that sort of personality change usually come around when smoking too much maryjoanna, coming of certain medications, or having had a head injury…. ❓
Just my thoughts…
Definitely! How can I not but help support this game… it ROCKS!
Gavin, please don’t feel disheartened by the actions of a few, who feel they must spoil it for everyone, eg Mokelok & AT spring to mind…
You’re doing an awesome job, and I feel for ya!
Many thanks (and hopefully a few donated $ soon too)
It’s probably about time you were the one who was banned – PERMANENTLY…
Mok, 1, TANK or whatever, was being perfectly fine while i was on…
Getting too parnoid man for me… you seem to just be bringing everyone down with all these negative posts, and that’s what’s been affecting everyone most, not the riffraff…
cya AT, but thanks for the ezine.
Poolee, over and out…
Apollo I’d love to but unfortunatly I don’t know what to use.
I’ve asked a few different hang-outs where I should go or what I should download to aquire a map location of the ISP from an IP, maybe I should try asking here 🙄 ….
So Gavin, Apollo, or whoever that might know. Got any peice of software or website in mind? Key things are Free, and RELIABLE. I’ve even wondered if there is a Command Prompt feature?

Well a couple of days ago, something VERY weird happened in relation to moving that it must be a bug…
Apollo was 3/4’s of the way across the map, so I aimed a Deaths Head at him, 30 degree angle, 700 power-ish, and pressed fire. AT knew that was coming and had purchased 80 fuel, and used his tactic of running into the DH to escaped it. Now, my DH landed short of the desired target area, so AT effectively ran into the Dh! 🙂
And this is where the bug started…. it blew a LARGE swathe of land where was running to, leaving a huge cliff on both front and rear edges. When I looked on the map, AT was gone, but no message said I had killed hime. So I pressed ‘s’ to check the score, and AT was listed as ‘Oi (Dead)’. So began wondering where my kill went and and why I wasn’t credited for it!! ❓
So I typed a message to that affect and up it popped on the screen, and suddenly, AT appeared – half dead and no shield – next to a player on high land near the cliff who exclaimed ‘Where did you come from??’.
There is NO WAY he was moving cos his dot on the Planar view was not there, he was listed as Dead prior to appearing, and should no have been able to even get to where he was because of the sheer cliff that his fuel should not have let him climb!!
So tell me, what’s up with dat????
I think we see it slightly differently Willis – but that’s ok, as we’re all entitled to our opinions 🙂
… my view on Blah2 is the there are fewer items per page and therefor that would become more tedious and difficult to quickly find item. Thats is compounded by the fact that values are intersperced every second line, breaking up the alphabetical flow of the weapons.
This would be less of an issue if we could add items to a faves tab, cos then we would only have a limited number of items to deal with, ie problem solved for Blah 2.
…my view on Blah1 is more favourable because of the nice alphabetical arrangement. The width would be a problem if the text is too big for someone at lower resolutions – not sure if the menu size is intelligently resized according to lower res’s though… Could the Sell $ column be replaced with tooltip $ values? (which show immediately when passing the mouse over the Sell button? Honestly, when I’m selling, I very rarely look at how much per Missile, Funky etc I’m getting, as it’s usually a fixed value and doesn’t appear to be affected by market fluctuations.
For the players that already move the Buy window out of the way to survey the mapboard before buying & then move the Buy window back onto the screen to Buy — that’s a total of two clicks (per moving the window out-of-the-way & then back; but I only do this ONCE per Buy, not several times like poolee suggested).
Yeah, ok, maybe I was exagerating, but it does happen often enough that such a feature would become invaluable. I’m sure others have moved the buy window more than once though…?
Anyhow, lets not lose sight of one of the primary goals of this thread – a favourites (or “favorites” for the Americans amoung us 😉 ) menu that would reduce a lot of the tab too-ing and fro-ing that currently happens when buying and selling!
💡 Here’s an idea….. Perhaps Blah2 would be fine for just the Faves tab??????? And leave the other Tabs be??????
Rather than minimising, which would then require the mouse to moved right down to the bottom left (or right, or centre) of the screen to then click again to bring the winfow up again, and THEN move the mouse BACK UP the screen… can you see where this would be inefficient??… how about making the window “Roll-up” to the tab if double-clicked on (or some similar mouse-type (or keyboard?) action that doesn’t require the mouse to move anywhere?
So, there you have the buy screen… wait what does my position look like?… dbl-click… ah, not good, better buy some funkies and a couple of force shields… dbl-click, buy funkys, buy f-shields, sell one f-shield… wait, what about <<>>, where are they located… dbl-click… ah, over there, not too dangerous at this satge but better buy fuel… dbl-click… buy fuel x2… ok, go!

Nice work Gavin! Am looking forward to that new version!
I reckon check boxes next to items in all tabs (incl the Faves tab) to select or deselect something as a fave. Selecting something in the other tabs should add that item to the faves tab (while leaving that item in its original tab).
Deselecting something in the faves tab should remove it from that tab immediately. That way, one wouldn’t have to go through all the tabs to find stuff one has selected so one can then deselect it… much more efficient I think.
Just my preferences… 🙂
Hey there Dire!
Another cool vid! Some great coreography going on there!! Well done and cheers!
I find it hard to disagree so I voted: ÓÁÜÞ ÇÀÐÝÆÓ!
I can’t see the logo!!! 😥
I too shall be there… to the bitter end!! 😈
Come on people, vote! So far I’m sure we don’t have a representative number of the community…
Even if you want the status quo, you should have your say!!!
