schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

(Apologies for the delay, Christmas and whatnot.  I'll try to pester people who still need to send in moves tomorrow.)

Re: BattleTech Campaign - Maintaining the Holy Shroud
(So far I have received moves from JSRNerdo, StarSlayer, -Joshua-, The E, and Lepanto.  I am waiting on moves from IronBeer, Phantom Hoover, Admiral Ralwood, and Aesaar.)

 
Re: BattleTech Campaign - Maintaining the Holy Shroud
I don't at all mean to rush you, but I am going to stumble into doing just that curious what the holdup is and if there's something that the players can do to help things along :)

 
Re: BattleTech Campaign - Maintaining the Holy Shroud
Christmas happened and everyone had other things to focus on, I think.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

 
Re: BattleTech Campaign - Maintaining the Holy Shroud
I am new to this thread, but would be interested in your game with simultaneous movement.

I can play in the next battle if you are already started.

....hopefully this might still be going...?

I saw the list of mechs still available.... so if it was still correct... I'll take the "Regular TDR-5S Thunderbolt (Special Ability: Hopping Jack)"
I think its actually called Jumping Jack but its all good since the 5S doesnt jump... perhaps it was meant to be a 5SE?

Anyhow... not sure when you guys play... except that you play on Sundays... just not sure of the time.

Callsign: MekMaster...  or just "Master"  :eek2:  :lol:

Keep me posted with a PM.

Re: BattleTech Campaign - Maintaining the Holy Shroud
I have been without internet for the last week and a half, my apologies.  It has stalled, because trying to coordinate simultaneous movement is a ****-load of work.

"Hopping Jack" is correct; Jumping Jack reduces the jumping modifier by 2, Hopping Jack reduces it by 1 instead.  It was assigned randomly.

  
Re: BattleTech Campaign - Maintaining the Holy Shroud
At least it's good to see you are still there.

So "stalled" ... Does that mean it will pick back up or not?

Personally it might be easier to have players say they run , turn to face hex xxxx, enter hex xxxx, turn to face hex xxxx, etc.... Just send them the map. If they can't finish the move because they can't count or forget their heat, then you can leave them short as if they had tried to do what they wanted.

Hopefully this Doesnt just fizzle out.
