Site Ideas / Forum Clean Up!
« on: April 21, 2008, 04:45:16 pm »
So yeah, Im curious if you guys think we should clean up the forum?
I came back after roughly a year and I noticed a VERRRRY huge heap of spamlike posts...
Perhaps Sloik can shut down the forum for maintenance??

Only threads that are seriously worth anything or are DRAMATICLY entertaining will remain.
Of course Sloik has the final word in this cleanup campaign, but im willing and able!
I will leave this poll up for 30 days, after that we will decide what actions are to be taken. ;D

News / Foxx resigning...

Hi all,

This took me quite a while, but I decided to 'quit' the forum.
Main reason: Time or rather Lack of Time AND I seem to have lost all interrest in Machines.

I sincerely hope you guys get a Machines 2 up and running in the future, but it will be without me. Not that I was that big of a help...
The forum has a lot of new members, so I don't suppose finding a new Mod will be a problem.
I'd like to suggest to promote 3Dfreak to Mod though. He's the best 3D artist the forum has and doesn't mind speaking whats on his mind.

Judas, keep your head cool, hehe, I think its good that your back here.

Sloik, I would like to suggest cutting out some of the 'useless baggage' threads to clear up the forum. Its kinda messy right now.
Also its up to you if you remove my Mod rights or not... I might want to check on you guys in the future, so if you can keep my account active I would be gratefull.
I wish you luck with the forum.

Well... Thats about it,

the best of luck to you all,

Signed: Foxx

 :-D God I love this smiley... Im taking him with me...

OffTopic/Fun / Books
« on: October 24, 2006, 02:17:21 pm »
*Cough*Cough* OLD VOICE--> When I was young, we had bundles of paper with characters and stuff on them... We used to called them BOOKS. Now I know most of you youngsters probably do not even know what a book looks like, but I was wondering if there is a Book or .PDF title that you really like?
Proof me wrong and post them titles here! [/old voice]

My favourite books:

-The Dark Tower. The complete 7 book serie. (I got them all! In Dutch translation... duh.. Read them in English in the Library though!!) >>Link>>

-The Bernini Mystery (by Dan Brown. In Dutch)

-The Davinci Code (by Dan Brown. In Dutch and English)

-The Art of War (by SunTzu. In English. Its fun to read, as long as you don't take it to serious...)

News / Download the Machines Multiplayer Anti Lag Patch ! !
« on: October 06, 2006, 05:14:14 pm »
The Machines Multiplayer Anti Lag Patch found its origin in an idea by Jeballi. (We found it here)

Judas and myself have made this into a little patch that everyone playing machines online should install.
The MMALP is tested by Judas and me. It makes the multiplayer go way smoother ! ! ! (Reduces LAG BigTime!!!)
Unzip and double click! Thats all ! (ONLY WINDOWS)
It changes some Register settings.

If you got any trouble let me know!!!

Download here:

Dont go changing these settings on your own... If 2 players have different settings the effect will be reduced!!!

Lets Figure Things Out / Machines 2 Made in 5 EZ steps
« on: September 27, 2006, 01:24:11 pm »
I suggest we take a bit more relaxed approach to M2dev, Judas is VERY enthusiastic but he seems to forget nearly everyone is working and going to school  :roll:
Since this is a 'spare-time project' its not possible to set deadlines, but if everyone try their best we can do this in a reasonable amount of time.

I divided the tasks up in steps.

Step 1

The Story team gets together in a separate thread to make a list of the units per race.
Also a list of needed sounds will be made.
After that, the storyline gets polished up and Mission Briefings etc. will be written properly.

Step 2

(Preferebly 3) 2D artists design the units by the list made by the storyteam, every artist his own race (to keep unity in a race, Believe this was a tip by Jeballi)
Units will be drawn in front, left-side, right-side (if needed), back and top view, details are drawn in seperate pics.
Draw pics in Color or in Grayscale (Write the colors in text though)
When a unit is done it will be checked by the leader of the 2D team and Judas or me (Foxx)...

The Sound team will start to create the effects and voices.
When sound-packs (per unit) are completed it will be checked by team leader and Judas or me.

Step 3

While the story team and 2D team are doing their thing, the 3D team will practice on recreating the original units, until the 2D team deliver finalized pics.
Like the 2D team, I suggest every 3D artist takes his own race. We got quite some 3D guys so perhaps they can work in pairs.
Trees and stuff can be made by one or two guys. (I believe there are standard trees and bushes in the modelling program but original stuff is preferred)
And when a unit is completed it will be checked by the 3D team leader and Judas or me.

Step 4

The programmers team should be familiarised with Ogre by now and can continu implementing the finished 3D models and finished soundeffects right away.

Step 5
Writting the AI and overall Gameplay (Menu's, Ingame Menu's, Controls, etc.) is next. We will see about that part by the time we get there. I think we should focus on the first 4 steps first!

If anyone disagrees or want to add something PM me please!

Site Ideas / Old/Closed Topics
« on: September 09, 2006, 07:01:19 am »
Might it be a good idea to remove some of the old and closed topics? I think it would 'beterize' the forum...  :eng101:
I know some closed topics are there as an example to 'teach' the new Noo..uuh.. members how to behave (or beter said 'How NOT to Behave') but as you all may have noticed it isn't really working... :|

News / Ventrilo 2.1.4
« on: August 25, 2006, 06:48:20 am »

Im currently busy with judas to test my ventriloserverthingy... It is working fine at the moment... Only thing is it works only with Ventrilo 2.1.4 wich you can download from my site

I have an old laptop in my shed somewhere, im gonna see if I can get it to work and make a 24/7 Ventrilo Machines server out of it :-D
Basicly,the server is up whenever you see me around on the site :)

Server Name: Machines Tournament
Server IP:

In the setup menu select 'Use push to talk hotkey' so when you want to talk you have to push F12. 
Also make sure the right Sound Input/Output devices are selected.

Now when you press 'Connect' on the main screen you should get connected (whenever my server is running of course)
If not PM me and we'll figure it out :)
Note to h@ck3rs: Trying to hack my computer is useless, I believe I have sufficient protection and there is nothing of interest on the damn thing anyway ;)

News / Machines Upgrade allowed in Tournaments??
« on: August 24, 2006, 07:12:04 am »
Some people here asked if there could be something done about the crappy zoom-function of Machines... Now Judas has made this possible...
Personally I wouldn't see any problems.... But...

Should this mod be allowed in Tournaments?? Please Vote!!!
