    Greetings from China

    The biggest problem is government interference as a whole. Because the government, the watchdogs for the prison of our existence, we can't quite blame them. Therefore, we turn our eyes onto the "victims" of the enforcement, which would be the game addicts. Problem is, it would be difficult to...

    Greetings from China

    I'm going to have to agree, sadly, with Ki here. If anyone is to blame, it would have to be the gamers themselves. Aggravating yourself because half of the population is busy rambling away in a virtual world is a bad notion to follow. As for hyp's argument of a lack of phenomena detection...

    Kingdom Hearts is a terrible game of storyline. The gameplay was pretty good, but the storyline. All of it is a bunch of cameos in response to little bishie-craving fans that go, "zomg! i watns my lil cloudy in kh!" Sephiroth, I can't quite say he was evil. He was driven insane by the fact he...

    DotA: The Psychological Analysis

    Gauntlet, your theory is a joke. Literally. The closest thing to a "cult" in DotA is probably some ill-minded fraternity of which players reside in. Chat monitors are a violation of privacy as well, and no one would get anything out of DotA unless there were subliminal messages, and if I really...

    Music Themes

    I'm trying to recreate one specific theme, but all the set functions allow only for a theme to be played once after the initial background music (unwanted) is destroyed.

    DotA: The Psychological Analysis

    Blizzard maps are actually very, very fun. But in my opinion, they're a sort of PR gimmick to remind people that "we care about more than patches." Nonetheless, I feel that Blizzard has tried, and has also adopted some good maps, i.e. NOTD Games like Enfos, Uther Party, all those LOAP's...

    What happens to the games?

    Bnet is a conduit to allow players to host a game. The players are the hosts, the server isn't. Therefore, when all viable hosts leave, the remainder are disconnected and the game's presence is absolved.

    DotA: The Psychological Analysis

    The friend who was crass commented DotA as the "third-person CS." Essentially true, but when a game so fast-paced and watered down attracts the slums of an online community, you can't expect a lot else but more idiots to pop up. When people start playing a little more intelligently, i.e...

    DotA: The Psychological Analysis

    Thanks for bringing up some minor points I overlooked. Yes, Guinsoo's going to have his ass handed to him by Blizzard, simply because: 1) He made it with the editor. He can't say it was all his creation 2) From the site, which states "DotA stands for “Defense of the Ancients”, it's a free mod...

    DotA: The Psychological Analysis

    DotA has spawned a trail of followers, and its poor quality and blankly thought out systems often hook people nonetheless. Why so? In this essay, I intend to explain my personal opinion of how this game, despite all the rambles and hard work the modding community puts into their maps, puts an...

    Super Smash Bros. Ultima suggestions

    OT: First off, there should've been an Off Topic tag, because what you're saying is completely irrelevant to the creation of an SSBM game for Warcraft. I have no qualms about his idea, given the quality is relatively good.

    making difficulty for td help

    I'm pretty sure there's a form of an upgrade to increase speed for a unit. As for the dialogue buttons, I suggest variables for the dialogues, and from the button selected, raise the upgrade amounts. However, this will mean that you will have to start off the units slower than what you intend.

    How to display mana cost of items on item?

    This is characteristic of unique items. For example, the Gloves of Spell Mastery have the Control Magic ability tagged onto them. Therefore, to invoke the spell that is given, there is a mana cost. So when creating abilities, you simply add a mana cost, given that they are active. However, I'm...

    There is a trigger function to set the handicaps. I recommend that you try that.

    Same with my brother. IN any event, Guinsoo will screw up and add something legally impossible. Most editors don't read the Terms of Service, but they don't violate them either. The megalomaniac will run into something if the map gets too big. Most editors make great but small-pictured minds...

    Super Smash Bros. Ultima suggestions

    Create a knockback sequence, and not something based on their health, i.e. dying. For example, create a rackup damage, so it would loop this trigger based on the amount of hits one has taken. Event: A unit is attacked, or something to that effect. Conditions: Yours to add Actions: For each...

    I hope DotA really runs into some legal issues with this. If it becomes some sort of franchise it would infringe on Blizzard's artwork and miscellany copyrights, and finally go down.

    A disturbing look at WoW and other MMORPGs

    I didn't even think it was a joke. It was stupid, whether it was a joke or was serious. If it is serious, those guys are being extremists, almost forcing people to join in with God, being his little free violators of free will.

    No, Satomi, I was not talking about you.

    Worst game you have ever played?

    The Tribes series and or course, Runescape. Runescape was a pathetic game. You had kids ranging from ages 5-16 flooding my frigg'n library computer system to play Runescape, like some giant LAN party. What's even worse is that people actually will pay money for that. Tribes was so frigg'n...

    I believe you'd be much better off CnP'ing with MSPaint to create parts of the image, or downloading a trial of photoshop to do that. If necessary, just go to, look up some neat pictures of the effects, and put them onto your picture like a collage. I'm not sure exactly...

    I Feel Sorry for you Americans...

    Only a marginal amount of Dota's material was ever worth even glancing at. And that very material wasn't his. I recall something from about 4 months ago where Guinsoo was failing college just to make an effort to update his map. And his update? "Many of the popular heros have been nerfed," in a...

    It's because God is a figure of religious belief, not a delirious myth fabricated to attract attention. When someone sees something wierd happen, do they blame it on God?

    Not necessarily. If a legend is not recorded, then it gets twisted by the rough and unnerving grinding stones which we call word of mouth.

    You do not understand the point. Magic is what most MMORPGs contain, and many things as well. But what you're saying is that in this game, anything can become an enemy. This is not the case.

    New BETA Game Out!!!

    Nonetheless, that just reduces the realism that is long appreciated in many MMORPGs and other games. Realism is what gives it a point. It tells you some person can't hack the game into a dimensional wormhole, and gives the game some actual limits
