Would it be possible to code things so that the player who's been slowed can do something to break the effect? I'm thinking of other FPS's where you have weapons that do DOT damage (flamethrowers, for example), and the player can do something to cancel the effect prematurely (touching water to put out the flames, grabbing a health pickup, etc.) If the player can do something similar to cancel out of being slowed, that might help balance things out.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

It makes perfect sense, and it's a good idea.

But, the game won't support that behavior, unfortunately. You can't prevent someone from throwing the disc as often as they like, and stunning more than one player. That is, unless you make the energy consumption for the disc so high, that the person using it runs out of energy after a couple of throws. That would limit its use.

I think the best solution is probably to have the disc only become available quite some time after the map loads. And, maybe increase its energy consumption to higher than I have it now. Right now, it doesn't use much energy so it can be thrown plenty of times.


Gotta make allowances for the limits of the technology. Maybe it could be a temporary power-up, like the turbo-boost and turbo-curse in the LC modes?

Yeah, sorry guys, but those types of behavior aren't really possible, either. You can't selectively take away a player's powerup or subroutine. (You can only take away all of a player's subroutines.) And there's no way to cancel out a damage effect from a weapon.

At least, not without complex modification of the game's code. It was already very difficult to even get the game to support an extra disc in Multiplayer. It's hard-coded to only support three, and required modifying the game's binary code to get the new fourth disc to work. Given the source code, pretty much anything would be possible. Until then, it requires staying the course of modding the game, with a lot of effort and perseverance.

That being said, there are a number of cool things that have been added recently to the game in v1.2 of the mod, that I haven't shown yet. I think you'll be surprised at some of what has been accomplished, even without source code.

Uninstall the game: nope. Uninstall the current version of Killer App: yes.

Uninstall other add-ons: depends. Custom maps, definitely not. But stuff like the Ancient Disc Mod or Legacy Disc Mod, probably. Also, User Error 1 and 2 will be updated to work better with Killer App v1.2.

At any rate, one of the new features in the installer for Killer App v1.2 is to show you the other add-ons available, offer an opportunity to download them, and install them in the correct order. So, that should help with getting everything installed correctly.

As for when v1.2 gets released: as mentioned in the link with more details, some time this summer. Probably. Maybe. Can't promise any specific date.

It all depends on how much time I can find to finish things up, and whether or not I run into any difficulties implementing the remaining features that still need to be completed. All I can say for sure is, I'd really like to get this done sooner rather than later. It's been taking much longer than planned. But the people who worked on it - myself included - don't always have a lot of spare time.

In other words, I should reset things to the point as if I'd just gotten and installed the game for the first time?

Also, there's a Legacy Disk mod? I didn't know that. I'll have to get that one.

When trying to launch the Killer App Mod, it tells me that it could not find Player.txt, though I know for a fact that it is there. What do?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I know this reply is probably coming way too late. But, I'm going to respond anyway, in case anyone else experiences the same thing.

If you change the name of your player profile in Tron 2.0, after installing the mod, that's usually the cause of that error. If you leave the profile name as the default, it shouldn't happen.

An easy fix to that, would be to make a copy the existing Player.txt file (or whatever you've changed it to by changing the profile name) in the Profiles folder, inside your Tron 2.0 game folder. Then rename the copied file to _Player.txt with the underscore character in front of it.

The Player.txt error won't affect your ability to run the game, but it does prevent you from using the Mod Manager properly.

In the upcoming v1.2 of the mod, the way things work have changed substantially and that error will be a thing of the past.
