  1. Problems with the lovely "Tobbezockt" :)

    Not that it is forbidden, I am not the creator of the quote; but on forums members tend to not take what others already have, a way of respect.

    Is there a reason as to why you chose to copy my signature quote and not having your own .. ?

    I have no problem with you whatsoever, but are you serious?

  6. Card Art Rework

    You are talented in what you do, that cannot be denied, but I'd like to have you know the truth so you wouldn't be disappointed later on. Battleforge has been shutdown for nearly 4 years now, which means all of its playerbase has aged as well. The average of this community's age is not less than 15 years old I'd assume, meaning that the game is nothing right now but a train of nostalgia. For you to come and replace those memories with phony ones, that wouldn't be called anything but a mistake. Believe me, if just a fraction of the cards were to be replaced, I will be the first to quit the community, and I am sure many would agree to that. The "oldschool" cards are part of the game, it's is what makes Battleforge itself, the one carved into our memories for years now. You cannot integrate a modern design asset with an old game, it just won't look right. Not only will the artwork be different from the actual object model, it will not be as detailed either. Your efforts are valued, I am really happy to find someone spend their time in such way, but it seems to me that it will be wasted. Instead, you could create full-on scale fanart for characters like Mo in the media section, create forum signatures, or perhaps cooperate with the project's admins to create custom emotes for the forums or even headers for them to use in the announcements; say it's Christmas, you'd draw Mo with a Santa outfit on for them to use in a post, etc. My point is, it would be way better to spend the time making the cards into making something more useful that will actually be used.

    Try something out and show us the outcome.
  8. Donations are back... on Patreon !

    While I do understand your point and would understand why it may bother you, I believe it's also necessary to acknowledge that gaining early access is a reward as is. Early alpha testers were chosen on streams without signing up, however they were not forced to stay.. Anyone who had received their status could have given it up, in other words we were not forced to do bug testing. While it was frustrating to deal with constant bugs and issues, we also got the chance to enjoy the game as well, which many others had dreamed about doing. I honestly would be content with just having the alpha/beta tags on the forums as a form of gratitude, but beyond that; I don't think they are capable of providing us with more. Not to mention it is necessary, to keep the project alive, to give somewhat a higher importance to donors, which on the long run encourages people to donate and keep the server alive, it's a way of business really and you can't blame them for that really.
  9. [Forum Game] Rate the Movie!

    I agree with the Eddio statement.
  10. [Forum Game] Rate the Movie!

    3/10 I'd go with the Kung Fu Panda animated series, or if we are talking about regular movies, then it would be The Imitation Game.

    it's a side project. allows for sharing music with others by creating playlists or saves music locally for later use. supports sc & yt. authentication and data sync are fully functional. it's not much i know, it's for a friend and does the job well. suggestions/opinions? (started 5 days ago, around 3h of total work)

      The problem with a crosslink database is that the best ones are based on user information, thus requiring a lot of people to actively use the program to work well. Obviously it's also possible to do it via genres and tags but that will either require a lot of work (as in manually registering similarities between bands or assigning subgenres) or an amazing algorithm able to automatically create an amount of precise tags for each and every song.
      I suppose it's possible to use YT's suggestion bar to find similarities between bands but even that isn't amazing.

      Look at this, he calls himself the "Admin".

      Did you also remove 2 of your ribs recently ? :kappa:

      @sylvix95 i created it so that makes me the admin, feels good :kappa:

      @Kaliber84 yeah I thought about that, however, it is possible for me to have the user apply tags to the video manually when adding it to their list, or simply retrieve the video's tags myself using Youtube's API and store it in a database.

      It would require me to have a DB structure based on genres, this way the criteria would run faster & more efficiently.

      Say for example the following is how it will look like:

      electronic:[

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gS4domW0_yQ

      {

            users:<list of users with this song in any of their playlists>

            songgenres:<list of other genres this song belongs to>

            familiartags:<tags/genres similar to electronic to show in suggestion if wanted>

            familiarvideos<id of similar videos>

      }]

      So yeah, it's either manually done, or will take some time to fully automate it. Will require an algorithm either way to decide whether a video suggestion fits in or not

  12. Should I stop to not be serious ?

    Voted Trump God bless us
  13. My Project v2

    Yeah, the original example required strings to be surrounded by " " but when I showed it to people who have no prior experience in coding, it caused them confusion which was what led me to simplify it in that way. My idea is to have it as flexible as possible, meaning whether a string is treated with " " or not, it will still parse, or do you think otherwise? Also yeah, thought of making a "script builder" where it highlights the syntax & pre-parse the code (without executing) to show if there are any errors
