No, that would defeat its purpose.

The speech bubble would reduce incentive to type in the middle of shooting netgames by making you a more attractive target.

Not to mention that what you state would be way too easy to abuse.

What about that you have to be typing at a constant pace, like if you don't type in 1 second, you're uninviciblerized, until you type again. Also, Jazz, for your second idea, if someone is really good at shooting, but not at dodging, it can be abused. Get a high score, then kill yourself and don't move, so that you keep your uber-omega-1337 high score.

Kaysakado just poked a hole in Jazz's idea. I will now patch said hole.

Level scoring. Total score shows at intermission and the uber-1337-score is stored in some random empty hole on your comp. Besides you can already do that trick by not pressing any buttons when you kill yourself. You respawn after you attempt to jump/spindash/move/shoot after you died.

Honestly, the simple solution is obvious. Don't type if you are anywhere near someone else.

The bubble itself would be a nice touch though; along with the user's names floating above their heads... >.>

Edit: For the people quoting suggestions from later pages: Stop it. It's just clutter! I mean, one person quoted from page 50. I can understand that. But from the same page? What the hell? Think logically: Eventually the topic will be locked and suggestions will cease to flow in, allowing them to go through the pages and read all of them.

True, but that's a little cumbersome. Oh, and PUT IN A WOP/ no WOP rule. World of pain sux. (That's assuming it's kept.)

SRB2 already has that. It's not like people can join you on a non-advertised server unless you tell them your IP and to join, or if they know your IP and are so bored they decide to randomly check if you have a netgame up (which is totally far-fetched)

Long story short. SRB2 already has LAN only servers.

Not really, or are LAN networks addressed by IPs too? As far as I know, LAN networks have a completely different technology. Take two computers for instance. Try running a netgame with then first using a normal IP connection using Internet and then using a direct LAN connection using directly a cable. The difference is obvious, with almost no latency (null in practice) in the latter and hence almost no lag (again, null in practice).

Can somebody please tell me how do you connect to a LAN network?

It still TCP/IP, and SRB2 does replies to broadcasts sent to port 5029 by other computers looking for Lan games on the same network segment.

100 Mbit cable less than 300 feet (<4ms) VS across the country, over many routers and hops (40-400ms), hmm which is quicker?

CONNECT <LAN IP Addres> or pick "Local Lan" when searching for netgames .

I've done that once... on accident, though. (I use a batch file to join all my netgames, that way I can easily get back if c-failed. However, I forget to change the batch file back half the time)

Host a game and it automatically advertises it on the LAN. If anyone on the same network as you goes into the list it'll pop your game up whether it's on the Global Server or not.

God no. I love GFZ 1 and 2. It's probably the best zone out of any SRB2 map, ever! So many places to explore. Nice level of detail but not too much detail. It's the perfect SRB2 level. SSNTails' mapping style is one of the reasons I'm hyped about 1.1; To see more of SSNTails' levels.

Besides. That's what level modifications are for. Making levels that suit the creator.

I wouldn't want GFZ to have to be remade either.

(For those who don't know, I made Blossom Gardens)

And here are some suggestions of mine from the non-disscusion topic:

Or maybe straight versions of them, where they stick out from one wall to another. That one would seem more useful.

EDIT: I think that Sonic 2, Wing Fortress is what I meant. This could be used as another use for the tails pick-up frames as well as when being carried by flying characters like Tails at last!

What it does: Detonates very shortly after you come near it, causes a weak explosion (Same as the Bomb and Grenade rings' explosions), flashes red then black again continuously, while having the deton sound for the beep.

Eggbomb:

Description: Similar to the Mini-Eggbomb, but it is much larger (Just larger than a Deton) and red.
What it does: Same as the Mini-Eggbomb, except the explosion is much stronger (Maybe as powerful as an armegeddon shield explosion!), but takes much longer to detonate, and has the alarm sound for the beep. It is also pushable. O.O

Both could also be used as weapons for enemies, bosses, or even players!

They would basically be normal diagonal springs that have the 'nogravity' flag on. This would allow Knuckles to climb directly onto the spring from any direction (as long as they are facing the right direction for it to work, of course)!

2. I wonder if it's possible to make one of those polyobjects go around an axis; possibly with a choice of it go around in one of two ways:
1- with one side always facing the axis, or
2- with only the polyobject's posistion changing, so that one side always faces the same direction.

I'm thinking that when you bounce off it, you will be spinning, and will be launched off the ground - not by a tremendous bit though...

Or maybe a special FOF that's Downwards and Upwards movement speeds can be adjusted separately - meaning you can have it going down like a crusher, but go up much slower.

Here are some more...

*A special linedef executor that is activated when a player holds spin on the sector it's tagged to.

I got this idea from Marble Zone in Sonic 3, where spinning in certain spots makes platforms rise and allow you to reach areas that you couldn't reach when they weren't there.

*How about a special part of the Super Sonic level feature Super Sonic flying - where he continuously moves forward through the level, while you can make him go upwards, downwards, strafe left or right using the directional buttons?

*How about wall crushers? (I think this might have been suggested already...)

Well, I had this idea based on them - why don't you make it possible to create ice slides as well, for our own levels (I don't think it would be needed for the actual game without modifiactions)? They would be similar to the water ones, but you instead are forced to slip down a slide made entirely of slippery ice. Then holes could be made on them to increase the difficulty, and you might have to jump off them onto more ice slides, until you land on a place without ice or crash into a wall. I think they would as be fun to play as the water ones...

EDIT:I think it would be a better idea just to have a pinball board as part of a level, rather than having the whole level being the pinball board.
I was thinking of something like Sonic Spinball and Sonic Heroes, and Casino Night Zone in Sonic 2...

If you dislike the fact that I'm bringing up these points to disscuss about, please don't post about it! Instead, just ignore it.

Basically a polyobject is anything that implies moving vertices. Just think on what could be done with this...
If I recall correctly Horizontally moving sectors weren't completely possible in HeXen, according to Wikipedia. Only the walls could move, and there weren't Flats on top of them.

However AJ said something about his polyobjects being better than HeXen's, so this could be what he meant. Flats on top of polyobjects.

Move the vertices of a sector with a FOF and you have a horizontally moving FOF. The only thing needed besides that is just moving the player when then FOF moves.

That's an interesting idea... It would save us from having to use the 'change sky' special effect for linedefs when we move to different areas in a level.
