I too am loving this update rhythm. I'm glad you mentioned it Nerpson.

Also regarding this update...
keep the titleid of the map in the replay, if no additional data is required from the current title by the script
I posted about this on the TM and MX Discord servers and explained what it meant for MX and for players. My post got good reactions from Ender, Vulnerra, patrX, jensen, Timania, TMAsteria, MarciN, Dodeka, harule, Symbiose, Raptor, Poutrel, ZBluDriver, shortz, Eyohna, Clearvision, JR1988, Mekh, eFFecT, L1orX, Findus, Lucario, Flood, ben3847, Toyeca, HaagseSmurf, Duck, MeKecek, Racho, Bueddl, ChallengeSY, timmy, Owen J, Elvestad, Ozon, Pizzatoto, Eternity, Icenine, Rasque, Lucid, wohoohi, iemm, riolu, Adsun, and HYPE.

So, not everyone posts to the forums. But clearly people are pleased with this feature and how this will enable them to upload more replays to MX and participate more in the leaderboards there. Thanks again. :thumbsup:

Here's a screenshot of the post. They even spelled out THXNADEO with their reactions. Isn't that sweet? :pop:

That's great! I didn't know that wasn't possible before, but it's nice that it was fixed.
Forum moderator, opinions are my own. :thx:

Okay, Clearvision has found a way to exploit the new way replays are saved. :?

He built a map in ESL Comp titlepack with items from that TP.
Then opened the map using "Local Play -> Single Map" in TMStadium title.
Game says items are missing, but gives option to "Load Anyway".
Map can be played without items, but replay is saved with esl_comp@lt_forever TitleID, thus making the replay possible to upload on MX.

Here's a map he built to test it on:

Well, you said...

To anyone reading this that may think of exploiting this before it's fixed, we will eventually find your replays, and we will destroy them. 8-)

What does this mean?
Attributes is a library that can be included in custom game modes to manage player properties like the armor, speed, reload, ... Until now the base value for each property was common to all players. With the update it is possible to define a base value for each player.

well... these are my attributes.

I written out a huge thing, but i'm just too frustrated with the update, to explain all the reasons. :?

MP4 was enough to break alot of my previous work, the update forced me shut down on the titlepack server(s)
And in combination that there is not enough playerbase to be motivated to keep on developing.. I just quit. :x

I don't have the time and resources to start it back up again, unless :?: :?:

1. Playerbase goes way up :shock:
2. Game is made less complicated. :o

:idea: Solution (opinion for me)
*A global Maniaplanet live chatbox and voicerooms. (ie like Robocraft & NFSW)
*Group room chats to play together as a team.
*Free to Play all games, but paid editing, either as a bundle, or access to separate editing modes.
*Bye bye channels / agendas / warlords.
( Global Chat: HEY anyone want to play together, or lets talk about something.. Building game relationships. :roflol: )

:arrow: All the other additions are good..

Thats it. I gave alot extensive of time and effort, which some outside help with script editing, I spent nearly 6yrs and
got alot to show for it. With opening the doors to expanded single player, royal, and melee options.. We were there.. :cry:

But really, the game doesn't do it anymore, not enough playerbase and wrong direction with channels, etc..

It broke MELTDOWN titlepack, amongst other things. I had no idea what to prepare for, even thou I followed
all the previews, I thought it was just new advance options added to the game, but no, it was a makeover
and a downgrade. And that downgrade makeover made me done for. It was 3 steps forward, but 4 back..

Later, Bye for now. :cry:

Sir Knight aka KADAZ aka pardon.
