Re: *Unofficial* Intro & Gameplay Hints For New Players

Also, what are the odds of a unit who is running for cover, not stopping to shoot, and being shot at while he runs to make it to his cover without dying? Instead of odds, think about it in terms of how long your unit will be exposed while moving to cover. Two things, in addition to cover and aiming...

Random Map Generator

I have been trying to use random maps, from AI skirmish mode, in multiplayer games, however, when I load them in the advanced game creator, they load without the walls, just a collection of hotzones. Is this supposed to work, or is there a different way to do it?

Re: Multi-player levels

I can't wait to see it, Retro. I didn't realize scenarios of such complexity would be possible in multiplayer. Is this irony ? because I didn't post a link to the thread you quoted. Icebrain, that was from the second link within a thread in the list of map making resources you posted, so, yes, thank...

Re: Multi-player levels

Hey Retro, I challenged you with a custom Hostage match, based on a Disputed map. Let's see if it works!

Re: Multi-player levels

I just found mention of some of these details in Ace_Rimmer's old custom maps thread, here's the relevant portion: Omroth Re: Ace_Maps: Public Places And More Tue Aug 10, 2010 7:39 am For Hostage, you need zones prefixed with Hostage (ie Hostage1,Hostage2, etc) and Exit. For Secure you need "Mo...

Re: Multi-player levels

I'm trying to figure this out by generating maps and checking out their details, so all this information could be totally wrong. You make a zone by holding T and dragging a box with the mouse. It is unfortunately not visible while being sized. When you let go of T, it will ask you for a trigger name...

Re: Mac upgrade problems

It seems fully functional, now, and I was able to use it straight from my Downloads folder. I am very happy that there is not an installer in the OSuX version, as it enables playing on my work Mac with a non-administrative account.

Re: Frozen Synapse Live! Replay picks of the week

For me, not very exciting, but, totally worth watching. It assisted with some important details about disputed which I did not get from reading the in-game help and would probably not have figured out from playing it. The help text states you must escape with three boxes to win, however, one of the ...

Re: Manual update

That's so funny, I never knew you could cancel games. I always wondered why so many games were disappearing from my list.

Not that I will play any differently, now that I know. Better to just take the beating and consider it educational.
