    Alpha Test Game 7

    Yes, I got notified about this as well... not sure why. A bunch of turns going in. Are people actually playing out the rest of this test game? If so, I can dive into the issues related to the interface; clearly something to do with an upgraded PHP on the server versus the version I was using...

    Alpha Test Game 5

    Hey Guys, I'm only days away from finishing my PhD finally IRL. My plan has secretly always been to spend some more time on TacOps development this summer. I can't recall how much I mentioned last fall when I last worked on it, but I am about 1/4 of the way through the scenario editing...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    I had 15 minutes today, so I fixed that error message for non-ship objects. I've confirmed it works for ships, flak fire, and asteroids. I haven't explicitly checked an explosion, but it should work. Missiles are another question; but I think they'll be fine, since they're pretty close to...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Hmm, interesting. While I'm not too worried about explosions, asteroids are definitely something we'd want game makers/managers to move around when setting up. Among other changes I had to put in when I added the movement of ships, is that I changed all the icon tags from #ship_<databaseid> to...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Yeah, this is "problem 2" above in action. The other ships' scripts should still be working though. Actually, you can (read: should) be able to move the ship with the popup closed. If not, let me know, because I am able to. The current inter-cel fudge factor I've got hardcoded all over the...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    I've moved the rotator icons to the bottom right, as discussed. I've also made a first cut at moving ships and objects. I haven't tested it too far yet. You simply drag an icon and it will be dropped. There are a number of known issues: The tile in which the ship drops is under the...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Good point and an excellent catch; those names were "long" I suppose, and definitely caused the overflow. At the moment they are positioned statically; I could switch them to relative, and put them on the bottom-right corner of the popup. Can you think of an example where this will interfere...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Ship rotation now works. You'll find rotation buttons available on all popups now. As always, this will eventually get hidden away again, and only be visible to "game managers/runners", but I've left it open for everyone to try, for now! Report bugs if you find them. I pulled some creative...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Okay, I went with option 1 for missiles. Missiles will now list as x0 when empty, instead of dropping them. This will need some verification: I already know it works fine when I set the missiles to 0, but I need to verify that if we fire all our missiles empty, they will display as 0. This...

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Forgot to mention above that I also had chaff pods already working too. I took about an hour today and also just got the PTC and AMG multi-turn counters to be editable with a click as well. Seems to work great. (Best demonstrated using Game 6).

    WCTOO: Phase 6

    Hi Everyone, So it has been a while since my last big coding update, and I also know both Game 5 and Game 7 have been fairly stagnant. That said, I did learn the lessons I needed to from those two games. Game 5 has pointed out a number of flaws with the UI in relation to large maps. I...

    Browser Interface Development

    Sorry I was rambling a bit. Allow me to ramble further, and try to better explain what I was talking about: So I had "recently" added a mouse-over tooltip that gave ship names. I had put this in around the same time that I took out the automatic opening of the large popups. That manual...

    RSI Pledge Thread

    I'm in for the early bird $30 for now. If he releases more details about what exactly each of these citizenship levels are, I may be convinced to improve my pledge in the future (a feature he's not currently offering, but given he's trying to emulate Kickstarter, he'll have to implement it if...

    Browser Interface Development

    I just did another jquery update, but it still doesn't fix our problem. I spent about 2 hours today trying to get the new tooltip function to work instead of my manually coded tooltips, but they aren't playing nice with the css styles. Further, I looked into using the jquery's .position()...

    Alpha Test Game 5

    Sorry, my bad. Somehow another *month* went by. Whoops! To celebrate the announcement of Star Citizen, I'll go ahead and boot Glorious (wowskyguy).
