Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

Sorry for not being able to properly reply to everything from everyone. I was writing all this besides my work with the brain of a pizza from 2 months ago. I know not everything about how to solve all problems. I know a bit. So I can't answer everything. In the end I'm just a player and a fan who is...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

Hi ! All what you said is based upon the assumption it's desirable to get a larger fanbase or number of players. Is it so ? Friendly, - Give players the option to add some more fun/thrill to a match - Yes, also attract more players that currently don't play it (many are fascinated on matches with b...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

Don't get me wrong. Didn't want to mess around with anyone in here. Sometimes it's just good to throw in new ideas, discuss possible issues and don't end discussions because person-xy says it might be a bad idea. Every idea / opinion can lead to something new. I throwed in more than my 2 cents now. ...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

Fooling a crypto currency network is impossible. You would need 3 digit million dollar hardware for that. Do you think that an aggregate of specialised video cards worth a billion of dollars would break through a modern encryption? Hardly. Some obsolete encryptions can be broken like that, even wit...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

You are right, it's not a real argument. It's your opinion, which is okay! But you wouldn't have to. And (again *sigh*) : It's not gambling. Let's be clear, betting with cryptocurrencies is gambling under US federal law (Wesnoth's country of incorporation). Let's be more clear: Betting on something...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

*shrug* I know it's not a real argument, but an MP game with any sort of betting or gambling involved would be a sure-fire way to drive me as far as possible from it. I would never, ever, under any foreseeable circumstance, partake into any sort of game with betting or gambling. I hate it with a pa...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

You want playing wesnoth to change from innocent gaming into infernal gambling? Think a bit what money brings into games. In MMORPGs, it is the real money trading, with a lot of cheating included and resulting in a degradation of item farming usefulness. In some other games, it brings various profe...

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

I know that this project generates the funds for keeping it up. Otherwise it wouldn't be up and running, or it has donations. But again: It's not about making pure profits for putting money into the private pockets of the developers and other team members. It's just for keeping a new service like th...

This concept is loosely related to FPI #31.

For public bets there should be a ranking system, right.
But for bets that players do, which are only playing on that match (spectators cant bet) you won't need a ranking system. Simple as that.

Re: Betting with Cryptocurrencies

I almost thought this was spam at first. This concept is loosely related to FPI #31 . It would move towards creating the same sort of environment. Also, Wesnoth is supposed to be for all ages, and I'm pretty sure no parent wants to see their kid using a game that allows betting. Yes, this might be ...

Betting with Cryptocurrencies

Hey there, just had an idea for Battle of Wesnoth which is also possible with League of Legends at the moment. (I don't think it's native built into LoL but somewhere on the net I've stumpled upon a way to really do this, people confirmed it works great.) So what if there was a way to play a game ag...

Re: Will be Wesnoth forever 2D-only?

Please, please, please - no 3D. This is not some kind of fancy pancy 3D walk your units around game. There are plenty of those out there. The reason I love this is because the concept has been executed in that Oldschool 2D style so well. Dear developers, please stay true to yourself and the project....

Re: stuck in valley of death

I did it on the first try, technically. Wanted to beat both to see what happens. Was wandering around with my last units, pretty broke. All with just a bit of health. Messed everything up I could. Had to save and load several times just to make sure the enemy missed the attack to move on. Did this f...

BTW if you like Settlers2, you should check out Widelands if you haven't already https://wl.widelands.org/

Looks good, but I think I prefer the Original The Settlers 2 Gold Edition. ;)
Maybe I'll take a look at it on another time anyway. :) So thanks for the link

Re: [BUG] Huge cursor delay, nothing clickable

Okay, found it in the Library folder which was sitting in my User folder, deleted it and now it works again.
