That BnG tournament was pretty fun, we should do it again.This time though let's try to organize it so all our regulars can participate, just tell me if you want to participate and when we're ready I'll make up a bracket so we can start playing the corresponding games. Prize can be a custom map made on request by the winner like last time unless somebody has another idea we can do.The question is, which scheme should we play for this?>BnG (fast version)>Something rope-centered like WxW or Pod>Traditional like Team17, 80Normal, Elite/Pro>Board Game>Race schemesWhat do you think?

>>487308GGs, thanks for playing.
i tried replacing the Ally and Ally_btn sprites with different images (saved as 24 bit bitmap) and this happenedi don't get it
>>487519Maybe some palette fuckery going on? Try copying what you did on GIMP and indexing it there. Or just editing the color and overwrite the same file.
>>487519tried them as 8-bit BMPs and the garbage goes away, but the images is displayed with no color
>>487528Try it with 16bits maybe? These palette shits are always a mess.
>>487531shart.net doesn't even have the option to save as 16 bit lmao
>>487532wait, mspaint can though, i'll try
>images don't appear unless you host online >get "you're hosting too many games" message trying to troubleshootshit game
ok so apparently there's a folder called "palettes" with one called "hostjoin.pal" but i have no idea how to open/edit or use this
>>487545just host LAN dumdum
>>487546Maybe let's just wait for our resident worm master hacker to wake up before something hows terribly wrong lmao.
fuck this, here's a PNG of the images I was trying to use if a non-devlet takes a crack at it at some point
>>487554just to add, confirming that the bitmaps are meant to be 8bitthat being said, even when copying the color of the original files exactly with the dropper tool, the new images remain colorless, so whoever said something earlier about the color potentially being embedded in the file itself somehow might have been onto something
>>487596afaict the palette in the .bmp is ignored, it uses hostjoin.pal instead. only the color indices matter.hostjoin.pal isn't hard to modify but it's gonna mess with all the other buttons so I don't suggest it.I can post your images in the correct format as-is but maybe you could redo them to support SuperFrontend, e.g larger images for graphic/_super/x960
>>487631is the (unrecommended) hostjoin.pal edit how you made it work there?also yeah whipping those up wasn't that bad, i could make an alternate set
>>487638>is the (unrecommended) hostjoin.pal edit how you made it work there?no sorry I was a bit unclear. the images should use hostjoin.pal since their own palette is ignored, you should be able to do this with an image editor but I'm not sure how.in my case I just wrote a script which I can post in a minute (wondering what's the least annoying way to invoke it)
as a side note it's weird that the game uses the ally color sprites in the order 2,1,3,4,6,5like, the first one is for blue but the first player always starts as red
>>487554>>487651made it a drag and drop tool. put .exe in WA folder, you can delete the .py, I just included sources for transparency.you can keep hitting Convert if you make changes to the input .pngs. tell me if there are issues.https://files.catbox.moe/k6bfxk.zip
>>487754this happened when trying to convert something that was already a bmp
>>487767nevermind i get it, use pngsi can't read
alrightthe color palette available for the host join screen is unfortunately quite limited, so i heavily downgraded my ebin spritework, oh wellso, HOST (and anyone else who is colorblind), there is now available a set of icons that will display a shape along with the respective team colors so you can switch between them more quickly and easilyif you're using the default worms graphics, download this:https://files.catbox.moe/kueqs3.rarand then put the contents in \graphics\HostJoinScreen\Alliesafter you're done say a prayer for >>487754this anon because god needs to be thanked for their existenceif you are using the SuperFrontEnd module, then download this:https://files.catbox.moe/3rfcnv.rarand put the contents in \graphics\_super\x960\HostJoinScreen\Allies
>>487780in the future you're better off making a simple zip with the correct folder hierarchy that can be simply unpacked in the root WA folder. pretty sure most people are using SuperFrontend
>>487782i've been using the screenlet version for like a year lmao
>>487780also nice work, I'll add them in even though I can see colors (unlike HOST)I thought the detailed icons looked alright, isn't this what you got? https://files.catbox.moe/9f9uwt.png
>>487785the background on the magenta one being blue and some of the borders being a bit off set off my 'tismalso looking back i felt like the letters were a bit cluttered and unnecessary

I other news, the Pod Shopper tournament is progressing, with a new match being finished today. Let's hope we can get that Round 1 match finished sometime soon so we can get things moving faster.If you have any suggestions for next tourneys I'm all ears. Here's some discussion topics.>group phases before bracket>Double Elimination brackets being the norm>Schemes to play>>>>Make a throaway account in challonge so you people can just sign up manuallyProbably won't be hosting today.
>>488114>not hostingwell i was gonna say happy birthday but fuck you jk happy birthday :)
>>488114double elim is superior imotakes longer but more fun for players who get eliminated earlier
>>488188Agreed. Either Double Elimination or Group Phase into Singles Bracket would be good to have people play some matches at least.
in the possible eventuality of a mole tournament, i might suggest:- some limitation on the number of girders- possible cluster nerf? (no problem with them being strong except the fact that you always get 3 at a time)- maybe allow each player to request one reset, for if the spawn positions are unreasonably biased
>>488292>mole tourneyI sleep
Ok maybe I'll host a couple games.Channel: #anythinggoesRoom: /v/Pass: rage>>488292I like the idea and the suggestions! Only thing I'm kinda against is the spawn thing, I believe the bit of randomness is pretty good, but if we want more fair stuff we can implement it np
a swiss-style tournament for 10-16 players only requires a minimum of 4 matches per player so it does seem like a good optionthat's still about 20-30 games total but still a lot better than a full round robin
>>488292>maybe allow each player to request one reset, for if the spawn positions are unreasonably biasedyou could say this about any scheme
>>488466If it's just 2 players you could just let them manually place

>>503819actually game revolutionizingyou're a madman
>>503819how does this work if the worms interact physically?
>>503985i'm really surprised how well it works on the second video, considering both dogshit synchronization protocol and my network setupthe first video shows a turn, where the player does not own the turn - it receives regular inputs from active player using standard protocol, but it sends the realtime position and state of second worm on each frame. in this case the movement of both worms is fluid - the turn-owning worm is moved using normal protocol, and the realtime worm is simulated locally by your gamethe second video shows a turn where the player owns the turn - it sends regular inputs to inactive players using standard protocol and receives realtime position and state of the second worm on each frame, the movement of the first worm is fluid because it's simulated locally, but second worm is laggy as it's position and control inputs are received in real time over the network, causing teleports or bonks on lags>>504060right now it depends if it's currently your turn or not - if it's your turn and you get bonked by realtime worm, other players will be desynchronized, because you only send your inputs, which do not include the information that you got hit by a worm. if it's not your turn, it shouldn't desynchronize because you send your worm state each frame. i will add sending your worm state on your turns, to prevent desynching the game.it's still buggy as fuck - ending the turn breaks the network protocol and camera has no idea which worm to follow so we bonk on every corner, even in ctrl+home mode. but with enough polish it should be fun
