Impressive release indeed.

And I must say, I love the fact that, at the beginning of the map, you not only get to see the name of the map, but also the author of the map ! Great stuff. I'd love to see this feature in EDuke32 as well ;-)

Hendricks' masterpiece of a port has it, I'm sure. He's coming here to tell you about it in 3...2...1...

It's like you want to provoke him and help shit up another thread, don't do that.

Could you post a screenshot? I disagree with the idea of showing the map author to the player, at least for the original game. "Now Loading: The Abyss, by Richard Gray" is extraneous information. It makes more sense for user maps, though.

I pay for the Duke4.net server, which hosts M210's website and this subforum. I'll visit this thread as I please.

Come on, it was just a joke on the basis that I find it funny how he's regularly hinting at his source port without showing anything of it. That's offensive now? Is this the new NeoGAF? Tell me because if so then I'll leave.

Anyway it's funny how it looks like Hendricks is free to call everyone "unprofessional" and stuff like that in a very serious manner while I get called out for "shitting up a thread again" if I do a harmless joke at the "expense" of someone else. And "again"? When did I "shit up" a thread ever, dear sir? Please provide links and stuff like that to prove that accusation.

I don't think it's "unprofessional" even if the font could be nicer, it's a good little way to educate players on just how the sausage was made. I never knew who made which level and would not be interested in googling it separately so I view it as a nice addition, I always liked how the original Unreal displayed the author at the beginning of every level. Why not? What is unprofessional about it?

Personally I'd have gone with the same font as the level loading screen, positioned to align with the level name on that one, and not display the author name.

Yep, that would have been the obvious - and better - choice. Displaying the authors name is a good thing but I've already said that, what would matter more though is the way it's being done. It's not information everyone wants to see so it should be more subtle. Maybe use the game's messages instead?

Yup that's exactly how I'd like to see it done. Though with today's drives you hardly see the loading screen, heh...

not to say that constructive criticism should be completely disregarded; but ultimately make it how you want to
people will appreciate your work regardless.

Thank you for the functioning port.

I think the author name is not necessary - it either should be optional with possibility to change it in the game settings or just disabled.

You can disable the level titles in options under game setup.

I would like to see just level title without the name of author. It seems to me that technical info like "Boat Docks by Sunstorm Interactive" takes a bit from the game atmosphere.

Umm, what's with the downvotes on this - and on my previous - comment? Breaking balls is not permitted on a Duke forum or what? Seriously, if I violated a rule or something just tell me instead of acting like frustrated children because I wanna know if I can help.

And for the record: no, I don't like Hendricks based on the behaviour I saw from him so far. Can I think that?

It's probably Hendricks army of fuccbois behind that again :D I don't appreciate his attitude either, no one is forcing you to like anyone. If everyone in the world would get along we wouldn't have any wars. I'll probably get a warning again or be banned alltogether after this post. :rolleyes:

All things aside, this thread should be kept for news/releases about Blood GDX.

Well, you know, a community is as good as the people who maintain it are. Why do you have to post one sentence saying "that's unprofessional" instead of constructively explaining what you feel to be wrong with a certain feature? Others did this in a perfectly good and understandable manner yet you're supposed to "respect" an annoying member... according to him because he owns the site. Wow, you just have to be fun at parties if the first reason that comes to your mind on why your behaviour should be tolerated is ownership. And downvoting instead of starting an actual conversation and bringing in actual arguments? That's just childish.

Btw. you're right, we should get back on topic and I'm too old to care about the weird rude people of the internet anyway.

[opinion]
Change the font of the map title and center it on the screen
reduce the size of the map author name by at least 1/4 - maybe up to 1/8 & put it at the bottom of the screen (center or right) - it'll be there but it won't be a distraction to the screen or an overload of information. Make it optional in the menu.

Forgive me for not making and including my mockup in my original post responding to the screenshot. It's constructive criticism: I offered feedback based on my experience, and showed exactly how to do it right.

Meanwhile, I count seven posts of you huffing and puffing about me. What does that say about you?

You need thicker skin Mr. Admin man. The world is full of people that you will find abrasive, and you answer to none of them.

This is not a polite discussion, nor an exchange of ideas and constructive criticisms. Nothing good is going to come of it.

If it was capable of making that screenshot, it would be done and ready for public release.

So now it's public shaming time because I said that I don't agree with some methods of our dear admin? :D How embarrassing...

Dude, if I was operating like this on the site I contribute to I'd be crucified... guess because we're professional?

Edit: Wait, so the screenshot you posted was a mockup? You posted a mockup shot as a comparison for a real screenshot from BloodGDX and you did not even state that in the comment? So why are you offended when someone takes issue with the fact that you don't waste an opportunity to say how your non-existing port is superior to the one we're playing right now? Man, at this point I don't even care if your port is real and it ends up being better than BGDX, I won't even start it up out of principle.

Not once did he mention anything about his own blood port in this thread. Axl said they'd like the author display feature in EDuke32, then you came in with the cunty flame-bait (how you expect not to get some kind of a lashback for this bullshit is beyond me), Hendricks266 asked for a screenshot out of curiosity but wasn't too keen on the idea for official maps, but may be a better idea for user maps.

A screenshot was posted by predreeke, and then all Hendricks266 said about it was that the map name/author display in said screenshot looked unprofessional, and thus he made a mockup showing how he believes it should look. Don't know what the big deal is, you and Tekedon are the only ones here being cunts.

So because it did not happen in one specific thread it did not happen at all? Nice logic there.
