Developing this project has been the funniest thing i did with Freebasic. Thank you. Agreed, I've had a lot of fun as well. Your entry looks great, I haven't played it much yet because I was busy with my entry but now I'm hoping to finish it. ;) It reminds me a lot of Commander Keen. @Lachie Here i...

Rather clunky, but that actually worked! Thanks. I'll get started on the game guide and try to document the known bugs or quirky features. The game is pretty hard to learn if you're not an avid RTS player but I believe you'll figure it out and enjoy it. I don't want the learning curve to be too ste...

A server down shouldn't crash the game. Also, clicking localhost keeps crashing my game EVERY time. Localhost still needs a server. Run the game twice. Start one as a server and then connect to localhost with the other one. This is my first network game so some network things aren't perfectly smoot...

Boromir, I've lost one game by you, but then had 3 consecutive crashes trying to connect to your server again. Don't know what's going on there. Ran both x86 and x64 versions as administrator, x64 always failed, x86 connected ONCE. I have Windows 8.1. Don't know what's going on there. I do think it...

Try the x86 version, and make sure it's not in the downloads folder. Sometimes networking gets blocked if it's in there.
If that doesn't work you might have to compile from source.

Erm, single player mode?

It's not really a single player game though you can host a game with only one player slot and add a bot.

Well, sorry for assuming anything, but i got that impression from your comment that even 4th of February was time enough. And now you have an extra week. Would hate to see another strong entry dropping off round one, for sure. Sorry, didn't mean it like that. :) I should make the deadline fine. It'...

Well, I don't know about "Boromir by Basic Warfare". :)

@Landeel
I played your demo. Looking very nice!
I'm a little confused by the weapon repeat rate though.
If you hold the fire key down it's slower than spamming the key in rapid succession. Is this intentional?

@Lachie
I should be finished by the 4th deadline as well, but I don't have anything against extending the deadline or having an after competition.
