That ban dates back from 2006... I don't recall the details.

Ban has been lifted.

There are just too many leechers

Too few people in general, really.

EDIT: 0.0 %. And no speed at all. Just as I thought. For those reading this: could you please help up this torrent's speed by downloading, as well?

This is really the problem with distributed downloading of Machines.  Torrents rely on the availability and dedication of seeders, which tend to be sparse just as the forum activity... otherwise I would've chosen peer to peer distribution as the propagation method of the MDS.

Originally the plan was to allow disc image downloads to the more senior members, however that functionality was never implemented.

Someone get me the updated channel information and I'll post it in the relevant locations.

If you guys are actually planning on using a wiki, I can make it happen. Please do not open one on some third party service.

1. What happened to the images while you select a mission (in campaign, I only see a rotating disk and not the usual map)
All cinematics have been removed from the MDS copy (including the little animations you would see throughout the menu). This resulted in the largest size decrease out of any of the compression methods we employed. It was planned to have the ability to download them separately, but I never got around to implementing that.

2. There's no music? I have to play it separately from Machines with a music player?
The above posters hit the nail on the head with this. It's very hit and miss ... unless you're using Windows 9X. Most just grab copies of the music files and play them with an external player while running the game. On some PCs it magically works with newer operating systems. If I had to guess, I'd say it's a combination of certain hardware capabilities and having the proper copy of the disk (some disk copying mechanisms don't include the CD-Audio).

3. The resolution does not have the option for 1360 x 768, but the one I downloaded without using MDS did.
Which one did you download without the MDS? It's possible that it included an options menu fix that the MDS did not. In any case, you should be able to find the mod somewhere on the forum to enable the same functionality.

P.S.: What happened in the recent maintenance mode?
Spam cleansing. There were a couple hundred bots posting spam messages throughout the forum... so I had to mass-purge both them and their posts, which required some SQL work (and a few backups, just for future safety :) ) The forum should be fairly secure now; it requires a Captcha verification upon registration, and checks registrants against the Stop-Spam database. Fun fact: About 25 per day are being blocked by the No-Spam database alone... meaning they are getting past the Captcha verification. 352 Spammers blocked up until today (July 17th).

Agreed. Some people don't realize the work that has gone into this website over the years.

Acknowledged - I'd hoped image verification would rid of them, but now it looks like a Captcha may be in order. I'll purge when I return from the office.

Good find, although I will say that the MDS is definitely easier/quicker... >.>

Wow, this is starting to feel like a reunion.

Nice game, looks simple yet addicting. I'll have to try it on the 360 when I get a chance.

Excited to hear you're still interested in Machines Game Development... as one of the original Devs, you're probably best oriented out of all of us to plan it. I hope maybe you'll consider a PC version in addition to the 360? Keep us updated!

This forum has seen better days, no doubt about that.

If you'd like to truly resurrect Machines, we'd need to revamp the Machines Download System to be free of registration (that means download mirrors... free download mirrors). We'd also need to get multiplayer working *seamlessly*. I never had GameRanger work perfectly without experiencing any kind of trouble. If there are steps to make it easier that can be implemented in the MDS, this could help to construct a much stronger online community of Machines players.

Do know that I wouldn't close the forum without first publishing the forum database for public download. Or asking for donations.
