Definately. Everquest makes plenty of cash and they have upgraded shit
(that's the only thing I can find that somewhat resembles AW).

What ever happened to Alphaworld features vote?

Apr 16, 2003, 7:23pm
Yeah, NewAW isn't just the old AW with a twist - it's an entire new type of
thing that may not attract nearly as many as AW does. AW has been the main
spot for years and I doubt any world will ever surpass it - AWCom hosted or
otherwise.

-Dion

[View Quote] As for the AW Feature Vote, I'm still waiting to see what the AWI staff
thought of the AWNews poll results that I sent them. :P

When oh when is awmapper coming back?

Apr 16, 2003, 9:27pm
The world is much too big for anyone who doesn't have access to the server
to do such a thing.

-Dion

[View Quote] The problem was what again, hard drive space for the hosting? As in the
website I assume? Isn't there a work around, such as raising the jpg
compression? Or maybe leaving out a zoom layer *shrug*. Anything is better
than nothing.



....or, AW needs a new "hero" who will start a new mapping service.

I would hope the AW Server isn't running on Windows! :-P

-Dion

[View Quote] File sizes over something like 1.5 or 2 GB can't be moved or copied or
something because of the way windows handles data. Is that right, Enzo,
Cal?

Huh... all this time I thought you guys just ran out of hard drive space.

LOL, on gigabit ethernet, 10gb wouldn't take much longer than a couple of
hours.

Besides, all you need is a really high-resolution map of AW for the mapper,
right? You don't even need to transfer the propdump.

GK Apps

Apr 23, 2003, 1:57pm
There are quite a few PKs are there not? I am just wondering why the GKs
are not simply picked from the best of the PKs to specifically work in
AWGate since it does seem to be much more populated than any other AWI World
besides AW, which is often empty at ground zero.

The PKs just seem like they aren't serving their purpose which is to patrol
the AWI worlds, which (if I'm not mistaken) would inclue AWGate. I don't
mean to rat on the GKs at all, infact I've never noticed an issue with them,
but I think it would just be in the best interest if the PKs and GKs were
merged into one. I think the GKs would be a much better sub-category of PKs
rather than a seperate group altogether.

No more copy/paste action commands?

Agreed. I often copy + paste object names when I am trying to remember 2 or
3 objects at a time while going between an object yard and my building area.

Why don't they not make the boxes grayed out but don't allow people to move
the objects or modify the text (just select it)

-Dion

[View Quote] i agree that this was done , but ...

if object selection is off , no one can right clik objects if they dont have
build rights , if they have build rights , they can right clik all objects
, but only his own property wont be greyed out .

if we leave this option as it is , then object selection should be enabled
in newaw , so ppl still can build , and they cant do the object move trick
in the prison .

now object selection is on , its the same thig as above , but also plp with
no build rights can right clik objects , but they are greyed out , if it
isnt their own property , i think everyone wants the old system back . where
you can right clik all objects , and they arent greyed out , even if it isnt
your property . public building wolrds need this badly .

No more copy/paste action commands?

Apr 24, 2003, 5:43am
But it is done locally for a few moments before the world server determines
if it is OK, allowing someone to get out of something like a jail cell in
worlds that don't give shift.

[View Quote] [View Quote] [snip...]

You can't move, modify or delete objects that don't belong to you (unless
they're labeled as <Tourist> ) anyway because of Building Inspector, so
what's the point in greying out the box in the first place??

Put it back the way it was...

Well, that wouldn't work either. Someone could put solid off for an object
in order to go through it.

-Dion

[View Quote] As Joker (sort of) articulated, the original line of thinking behind
disabling the OP box for objects that you do not own was that this would
prevent people from being able to move objects out of their way
temporarily. Since there's a delay between the time you move an object
and the time the server checks the object and moves it back, people
could simply move objects out of the way and cheat in mazes or games or
escape a prison.

Unfortunately, a side effect of disabling the OP box is that you also
disable the text boxes, so people can't copy/paste the text that is put
in them. What *should* happen for other people's objects is that it only
disables the action icons (except Duplicate) and the keyboard shortcuts
associated with them. But, I guess that involved too much coding rather
than saying "just disable the whole thing." :P

( Whitestar) Yes Mr Bruce will probly shutdown A!!CT Agian go on have another tantrum

Apr 25, 2003, 2:54am
Uh... This is certainly not the most mature way to deal with your problems.

-Dion

[View Quote] Mr. Bruce has banned me from A!!CT I felt it neccary to let every on know
that I can no longer be a part of A!!CT his childish tantrums and defiance
harassment of the Citizens has forced me to start my own world he has blamed
me for all his problems I told him that Defiance has cussed out my 13 year
old daughter and was harassing females in A!!CT as a Care Taker I repeatly
got complaints about Defiance on NCC what ever he calls himself his CIT # is
340479 this person is destroying people trust in A!!CT and because Mr. Bruce
has no real control over his own world he lets it go on. I had plans to work
with A!!CT and help them with sponsorships but once Defiance cussed me out a
few times I got the big picture and realized that he had taken control of
A!!CT from Mr. Bruce and there was no hope of fixing it Defiance has block
people from his object path they challenged him on some graphics he had no
right to sale so he blocked him from loading the objects and there was
nothing I could Do about it so when he Shuts down A!!CT Again He is going to
blame me I hope for the sake of all the builders in act that this will not
happen. So when this happens im sorry but A!!CT is a train heading off the
tracks and no one but Mr. Bruce can fix it and that's not likely to happen.
If you have kids going into A!!CT keep an Eye on them Defiance is a Hothead
and even thought A!!CT is a G rated world Defiance is a Care Taker so he can
say anything he wants and no one will eject him. Again I'm sorry to all the
great people that come in act to build and that might have got there hopes
up that I could make A!!CT a great Place To hangout but I never have that
kind of control over A!!CT I was promised that I could make some changes and
that's why I took over the world to make A!!CT a Place you felt safe to let
the kid's hangout build and bring their friends then sell corporate
sponsorship but that was not what happened. So forgive me when Mr. Bruce
Shuts Down A!!CT and blames me for it, that was never what I wanted I did
not set out to deceive anyone and I will have a new world Open Soon that
will be a Safe place to hang out.

Get Wells, Birthdays Problem

Apr 26, 2003, 11:06pm
Complain to the free servers that disallow this sort of thing. This is only
happening because ActiveWorlds has finally gone to the standard that IE, NS,
and just about every other browser on the planet uses.

I'm sure AW didn't do this just because they wanted to piss you off.

-Dion

[View Quote] Listen! You'll continue to hear me over and over and over until some kind
of agreement is reached. No way to leave anything for future generations of
AW if our builds don't stay the way we meant for them to look!

Get Wells, Birthdays Problem

Apr 27, 2003, 1:01am
You can't possibly be holding this against Active Worlds. If you're so
cheap that you expect AW to spend $9000 plus the annual fee to keep the
machine powered and hosted on a good server, you're crazy. There are tons
of expenses AWI has to pay already. Haven't you noticed their stock
figures? They haven't looked good at all in years.

[Bug Update - Repost to beta: 481] Sliding/Collision performance

Apr 26, 2003, 11:10pm
How did you conduct these "tests"?

I don't think rendering can cause anything of the sort. The rendering
simply shows your view and the objects and everything whereas the
programming determines if you can or can't move forward any longer and such.
I don't think the rendering engine really gives any ouput to the programming
code, either, except if there is an error and for the frame rate.

-Dion

[View Quote] Tests with D3D indicate that colliding with an object, even if no movement
is being made (face a flat surface at a 90 degree angle), FPS can often be
cut in half (60 drops to 30)
The same test with OpenGL and software indicate that no more than 1 FPS is
ever lost while colliding. I also noticed that sliding is generally much
smoother in OpenGL, even though OGL is mostly useless as far as speed and
accuracy of rendering.

This seems to indicate that the glitch which causes the FPS to plummet is
not actually in the collision code but (somehow?) related to the rendering.
Anyone able to confirm or deny these results?

Tourists+No Pics=Citizens Revolt

Apr 27, 2003, 3:48am
Not all ISPs offer it and those that do are reluctant to give it to you.
You must ask and most of the time, they'll refer you to a free server before
giving you their space. When you do get a login, it's often extremely
limited in space and bandwidth. I know I get space from Charter Cable but
it's like 500k and there's less than 5mb of bandwidth. It's just utterly
useless.

-Dion

[View Quote] I don't understand what the problem is? Is it unique to Australia that
every internet account comes with a standard web space? Why then do people
insist on using free web sites when they already have space paid for? Maybe
its people are just unaware that its there or they don't know how to ask
their ISP for instructions on using it.

*shakes head in wonder*

~ Justin

PS - I am talking about storing the pics you use in AW - not world hosting
or object path hosting.
