In Topic: Countdown timer in campaign missions is too fast.

12 January 2018 - 11:18 AM

The normal game speed is 4, thus a game second is 15 frames or ticks or whatever you would call them.


And since the two are interchangeable using the ratio mentioned, this means that at constant 15 FPS, the game seconds are equal to real ones.


Internal game speed is locked to value of 2 for singleplayer missions when not using the command-line argument to unlock the speed slider in options. This sets the FPS cap for missions to 30, which matches the 'Fast' setting in MP/Skirmish.

Desktop.ini is Windows' way to save folder settings. All this particular one does is make the folder it is in unaccessible in Windows shell (Explorer) only. It is is still exposed and completely accessible via other means such as command line. Plus even if it worked, it works on entire folders, not just specific files, making it impractical to use. As it stands the whole concept is utterly pointless, though.

Can have taunts for up to 16 countries with Ares so there shouldn't be any issues with that.

AttachEffect doesn't support negative delays - those are read as infinite with an integer overflow. At least back in the days I coded it in. I have no idea where you got the idea that would work, Attacheffects are too much of primitive fire-and-forget stuff for such an effect to be triggered.


Likely got the idea from Ares documentation, which specifically states that negative values cause the effect to be only applied once, and never renewed afterwards. Might not be how you implemented it but it is how it works right now.

In Topic: Custom map thread.

hey, I have a question. How to make preview image for custom map shows on the lobby? I put .png same name as my map and nothing changed.


It will only display preview injected into the map file itself for custom maps. Map renderer tool can do this, but it will not show up 100% the same as the 'pre-built' maps due to differences in resolution of the preview.
