Re: So who's coming from LSN?

I am. Loved LSN, but I think I am loving FS more. Must be the whole cyberpunk theme. :D

Re: Youtube uploading broken?

It's not completely broken (unless something changed). I find it fails to convert about 40% of the time. I basically just try uploading the vid three or four times. Usually it will work at some point.

Re: Unable to Convert YouTube File

I just wanted to add that I tried the suggestion from the other thread about manually uploading the record.ogv...it still failed to convert. Weird.

PS: Sorry I started a new thread about this problem. I only saw the other thread afterwards. :oops:

Unable to Convert YouTube File

I'm not sure if this is a FS problem or a YouTube problem, but about 40% of my exported videos are "unable to convert" according to YouTube. Not sure why, but it's been happening with regularity lately. :?:

Re: Wishlist thread

I just noticed that when you are playing an AI skirmish game, if you click on the "results" button at the end of the game, you are forced to go to the main menu after that, eliminating the possibility of uploading the game to YouTube. I would like to be able to exit the results screen and play throu...

Re: Games abandonded halfway through

I would like to see the ability to set a time control for a game. So, like a correspondence chess match, you could specify 1 day per turn, 5 days per turn, etc. If the opponent doesn't make the minimum turn amount, he loses.

Re: Your Best Replays

If your rocket launcher is ducking before firing the rocket will hit any low walls on its path. If you're standing it only hits full height walls. The enemy in that game could've blown up the boxes and taken most of the units with them. I never knew that! D'oh! I wonder if his opponent didn't, eith...

Re: Your Best Replays

Am I a camper, or did I just use the environment to the best extent? Both, because it's basically the same thing. I hate it when people do it, especially when the enemy hasn't a rocket launcher. Your enemy had one, and could have easily blown your cover away, so it wasn't really unfair, but still. ...

Re: Your Best Replays

The other guy called me a spawn camping fag/pussy bla bla bla (standard reply: U JELLY BRO), but I have to ask: I was spawned behind several chest-high walls, and just didn't budge from them as it just wouldn't be good tactical decision. Am I a camper, or did I just use the environment to the best ...

Re: Your Best Replays

Thanks! What's an AAR? :) After Action Review. It's a wargamer's term where you basically go through a game and explain what you did and why. I did that same thing with screenshots on my blog . As an aside, it would be cool one day if we got some "telestrator" tools (such as arrows, text fields, et...

Re: Training for new players

4. I read from different two forums that some people gave up playing FS because there is no way to chose units type and deploy them before starting a MP game. Maybe will be nice if we have such a new feature something like this: able to chose the number and types of units, the same for both sides w...

Re: experienced vs beginner player

I agree. FS should basically use the Elo system. It works well enough for chess and takes into consideration the rating differential between players, so that a beginner who loses to an experienced player only loses a few points from his rating, while the reverse is a jackpot for the beginner.
