@user SmD: This is not funny. A huge white image just makes reading this thread annoying. Nothing more and nothing less.

Some people here are asking for major updates but these are not planned to be honest. From my point of view the game is pretty "complete" and I could just call any of the next versions 1.0.0.0 because it's simply not a beta anymore. The version doesn't change anything actually. Many people overrate its meaning.

I'm working on the next update of course. Here's a short list of things I already finished. Nothing special or super fancy though.
Quote:
FIXED Zoom HUD is not displayed anymore for weapons without zoom when z1/z2 damage is set
FIXED Rendering issues with HUD elements in some special cases
FIXED mp_hovertext changes were not sent to clients when changed while playing
FIXED sv_maxplayers changes were not sent to clients when changed while playing
FIXED "Generating Lightmap" loading screen sometimes went beyond 100%
FIXED Shadow sprites in map de_vantage were missing
CHANGED sv_friendlyfire changes are now displayed to clients with a text message
CHANGED Dedicated server now uses server port to perform initial U.S.G.N. version check
CHANGED Some minor performance tweaks
CHANGED Silenced shots are less visible
CHANGED Changed encryption and file name for locally saved U.S.G.N. password
CHANGED Dedicated server no longer tries to load sys/controls.cfg
CHANGED usgn.de is used as fallback U.S.G.N. address when sys/usgn.dat is missing
ADDED Server info button in in-game menu (opens window with server info text)
ADDED Multi item selection and removal for "Downloaded Files" dialog (with CTRL/Shift)
ADDED Total size of all downloaded files is displayed in "Downloaded Files" dialog
ADDED mp_wpndmg_z1 can be used to define an alternative damage when burst / silencer is used
ADDED Hotkey [enter] for standard confirm buttons, these buttons are also highlighted now
ADDED Hotkey [ESC] for standard cancel/close buttons
ADDED Command sv_stopsound (stop playing a sound for all or a specific player)
ADDED Lua command stats (get stats/rank for a specified U.S.G.N. ID)
ADDED Lua Hook shieldhit (when tactical shield of a player is hit)
ADDED Added/updated some translation files (Thanks to all contributors! Names listed in Readme.txt)

Marginally. It doesn't change the fact that it is stupid and useless... and wrong because it implies that I never react(ed) to this stuff.

These are nice. What I've been waiting for, actually! I have to wait a little longer, I guess.

Hahaa, nice joke. You have many bugs to repair and you say about a complete game... And your new "changes" don't add anything important in my opinion...

@user Steru: He wasn't saying that he was planning to make the next version complete. He used it as an example to show that version number doesn't mean anything. His new "changes" as you said don't add anything important. Do you know why? If you had read and understood what he wrote, you would understand it. The game is nearly complete and no big updates are planned, that's why the changes don't do anything important.

You got to understand that DC already added what he thought was enough to make a good game. Now he's working on something else. Don't complain and appreciate what you have. Making a game isn't as simple as complaining about it, you know.

@user DC:
I understand that's its not easy to do your job (development) and its 1 VC 10,000(+) but you need to look at our point of view, A while back when CS2D was popular (more than now...) I had at least 5 friends playing now I barley see 1 and I have more friends than before (I almost filled up my account with friends)

And here's why:

No new "gameplay" content
example: New guns or ways to kill
prove: in the next update THE ONLY THING we will gain in gameplay is.. better silenced guns... I don't know if its a joke and I also don't want to know

No way to block DDos
example: LOTS and LOTS of good skilled and awesome servers got shutdown because of 7 years old that think they can hang out with the cool kids by shutting down and destroying good games and LUA cant do anything about it

Just to say: Like in my other replay I do not hate the game, its on my Favorite list in my computer (the D:\ drive XD)

DC needs to add new stuff to the game rather than just better USP and M4A1

Just think.. I know you don't want to add those but its or adding those things or the game will die... its dying now and you are not planning to do Anything about it

Most of the peoples playing this game are kids... kids like terror and explodes and guns and other random stuff... Kids will leave if they will be bored... and while you are reading this... at least 1 guy decided to stop playing CS2D.

Not hatin', just sayin'

@user DC: you planned to add more competitive updates like demos (don't forget you promise that) or is just this?
I hope you don't release another update just for "casual players" again, people who plays standard mode needs something new too. The rest of the list is ok I guess. The pcs project for example get tired because you always ignore what they want and don't expect if they insult you (yes sometimes I get mad for that).
Aleast show more interest, we are to give ideas to support more the game not to destroy.

Oh come on, waiting so long for next update and still something like this? I mean, we love you for creating CS2D and such, but any of the competetive/standard suggestion is almost never implemented by you to the game. It also decreases our possibilities to help this game.
An example :
We suggested sv_specmode 4 (spec 1 for spectactors, spec 2/3 for teams) for streams and such, because without it it was VERY hard to stream matches, camera jumped to whole other sector of the map after player got killed so we had to click buttons (space or ctrl or lpm whatever) to find the action again. And usually it was already gone. In 2010 there were huge problems with spec in hstv and hstv would be a huge step for PL community (which after 2012 went down).
There are still some videos in the archives, you have to remember that it was 2010, but still we got to such prof. level
http://headshot.pl/ghEQA5Ylqwz4/cs2d-elite-gamers-battle-storm-vs-dod
There are also 3 other videos in the archives. Idk if it was wrong lua or whatever, but dod ended up playing first half with spec 1, and we did play with spec 2, so you don't have to watch this to know who won the final (ofc both teams played with ts3).

What about voice chat? I know i know, this was suggested 1000 times, but your (last) answer is so silly. Here it was, 2 years ago :
Quote:
You would be busy with muting 95% of all players every time you join a new server. Chances that the voice chat is used properly on a public server are very low. Most kids will simply use it to do annoying sounds. It's not worth the time which is required to implement it.

Search the forum if you want to find other reasons. I commented on this very often already.

Closed.


Really? So just create an option for servers to either have or not have the voice chat. These servers which are regurarly moderated would LOVE to have such option. And for dd2 public and mix servers it would be a massive joy to share our fun with others. OFC we can do this with ts3/other voips but really... only these players who know each other will join ts3 and nobody random will waste his time to download and set ts to talk with another random person. + ofc add the mute/unmute command for every player.

And i know that some things are almost impossible, like different resolutions, because they would require rewriting cs2d, but there could be some minor updates that we would REALLY enjoy, like lets say for example sound when you are flashed. I'm a very experienced player in 2d and i've got good hearing skills, so when some newbie flashes me and decides to kill me afterwards i simply aim him by sound without many problems. If not, then maybe something like we wouldn't see objects dropped (weapons etc.) behind fog of war? I'm just thinking about this stuff right now, so i may wrote some bad examples, but there are plenty of stuff we would appreciate and they wouldn't be such HARD work for you to do them. Instead of making 10 updates that we simply don't care about, make 1 thing that we would appreciate you for creating it in cs2d.


No hate, just love (for 2d ofc)

There is no polish community left. There are only 5-10 polish ppl playing, 5 years ago we had 12 polish clans and many people without clans who were only from Poland. We had communities from many countries and continents, including America and Australia. Now they're both dead, only Europe survived...

Still, it's not few players, since we try to integrate (PCS) everyone from our globe.

I always tried to find solutions with the others from the PCS management and community generally to make this game more popular, more enjoyable to play. We have been doing this for 4 years and we kept it on good standards.

But right now even PCS is on a point of no return. Generally speaking, lack of ideas, low ammount of players (old ones) still playing, while newbies or casual players either prefer or are forced to play on scripted gamemode servers (which i find boring personally and have no idea how they find it good). Like others said, call it competitive, or original mode, we need to focus on what CS2D gameplay is, a counter-strike 2D game.

DC, sometimes we dont agree with some of your opinions, you tried some stuff when we requested you, or didnt. We still owe you for giving us a game that we loved, and still do. Like, i play this game 6 years and i made a bunch of friends. I am really grateful.

But please, sit down on a chair and think for some time what YOU are capable of doing to help.

Write in this thread some suggestions DC. Anything that could help the game develop and gather more players. Stuff that you have the time to do and can do (i am sure you could do a lot of stuff since you created the game, right?). We are really in a bad spot (i can say it from experience like Milriko mentioned) and we are quite powerless without your help. We truly tried everything that it was on our power, right now it's more up to you, if you want to continue the dream. You are the developer, and the strongest tramp card for our community to restore the game to - at least - an acceptable level.



It's more like a favor from a dedicated follower of your game, as well as a shout of agony for the state of CS2D from a management member of one of its biggest tournament and community organization such as PCS is.


Looking forward your reply,

You guys are exaggerating a bit. Of course, I don't mean that you guys are wrong or something like that, I read what you said and all is true about the miserable fate of CS2D. The true meaning and it's Counter-Strike spirit is almost dead and it will be very hard to regain it back (if not impossible).

I'm really sure that user DC is aware about this situation but the most problematic thing that user DC must face it is the time. In fact, that why I said "exaggerating". If he would have more free time and such, he could work more into this to solve this issue but since he doesn't have so much time for that, there are less chances (this depend though). Plus, he's working also on Stranded 3 and other things in life which is preventing him to work hard to solve this issue regard the fate of CS2D.

Maybe my case is different but think about it that he can't do all things at the same time, you know.

I just wanted to say it's not that we've all just fallen into paranoia and desperately want to fight against imaginary CS2D decadence and want you (DC) to help us (and you think there's nothing to help with and ofc. your game's holding up very well). We also really want to offer a hand to you and make you realize that your game is not in good condition and it needs solid upgrades, especially for the standard mode which was the essence of this game's succes and greatness.

Bringing back the CS2D glory is possible. Thank you.
