In other news, has anyone read today's featured Wikipedia article? Because it is certainly more useful than this topic.

You need to define the variable "choice." That is, you'll want a line near the top of the script that says...

short choice; And Exodus has a in-town teleporter in town 51, for comparison. I don't think Bahs had one, but I may be forgetting something.

Uh... it's possible that something's wrong with the graphics. I didn't do anything to the rakshasa graphics, as far as I can tell (although I did screw with summoning so much that I'm surprised that it doesn't crash BoA instantly).

Even that would be a little strange, because I didn't do anything — at all — to the default dragon. But other than that, I haven't the first clue.

Officially, General is for discussion of general Spiderweb-related topics. Misc, once upon a time, was for discussion of topics not related to Spiderweb at all, and since Misc got shut down, that discussion has moved to General, but it's not officially sponsored, just permitted.

This isn't actually a debate forum, officially; it's a message board devoted to games.

There's no reason not to tell him where the scripts are. There's also no reason to do so, because the cheat codes aren't found in the scripts. (The SDFs are, but you have to have some skill to interpret the scripts in order to know which SDFs are doing what.)

So the question is... what did you do to cause this? The dragon is placed in the editor, and there are no scripts that touch him in any way. Unless your copy of Exodus is corrupted — in which case you'd probably notice several other serious errors, terrains in the wrong place, characters missing, etc. — this should not be able to happen.

For lack of anything else to do, give the vital stats: the version of Exodus, the version of BoA, and your operating system. Also, whether you are using a god party or not.

When I went to the Ambrosia SW boards to peek at how they do things (a year or two back), I was surprised by the fact that the game designers were actually among the most active participants on the boards. It's unusual, but not unheard of, for the people who make the games also to post on the boards about the games.

You can't change the names of the default spells, but you can add custom spells easily enough. Lots of scenarios do this, including one of mine (Exodus).

Besides, a grenade should be an item, and those are very straightforward to add.

As has been said, the main problem would be the graphics. The engine manipulation wouldn't be too bad; new abilities are directly supported, and items can add even more versatile new abilities.

I think he means what he said: the number of posts. That leads also to fewer posts per member.

If that is in fact true, it's probably because we haven't had a giant debate thread lately.

Mister Fox was banned for the sort of interests that you would expect a guy who went by the name "Mister Fox" would have that would get a person banned.

Public Enemy No. 1 was somebody else originally, but I forget who.

I could've sworn that Bomber was a normal member for a long time before he went insane and started flame-spamming everything.

Lone Flame was... uh... a different sort from the above. I don't think he ever got Banned, just Canned. The difficulties with him were never due to malice or psychotic tendencies.

In very, very different ways. Ed was a crazy spammer/flamer, one of the worst (although I wasn't around for Shotts or any such predecessors). TM was a long-time prolific Blades designer (still is, I suppose) who just couldn't stay enough within the CoC to be safe. He still posts by proxy on occasion. TM is still a welcome part of the community (though not a poster); Ed is definitely not.

No. It's not.

Because a National Geographic article came up in the infamous Regulation thread that I believe demonstrates the same kind of bias.
What you're describing as "bias" is actually a tendency to doubt theories that rest on weaker ground more than ones that rest on stronger ground. You presented two possibilities. (1) just implies that our understanding of fossil preservation is incomplete, which requires revising some science that is known to be somewhat unsettled anyway. (2) requires completely re-writing all of geological history, starting with what happened at the K-T boundary and how the heck a T-rex could've survived the impact that caused the Chicxulub Crater, and leading all the way down to how on Earth we could've only found T-rex fossils from 65-68 million years ago if they existed 1 million years ago.

Scientists generally don't challenge theories that are supported by a mountain of evidence unless they have an opposing mountain of evidence.

In this case, though, presumably several things led to the dating of this dinosaur at approximately its date, including evidence from the fossil itself to the ground in which it was found. When multiple independent confirmations of a particular fact are available, typically one doesn't question that fact.

quote:
Is it entirely beyond the realm of possibility that T. Rex walked the earth within the past million years?
You would need incredible evidence. Far more incredible than this.

The situation of light is best summed up by a quote, which at one point I heard attributed to Schrodinger but may actually have been said by Ralph Baierlein: "Light travels as a wave, but departs and arrives as a particle."

Alternatively: When light is alone and unobserved, it stretches out, free and wave-like. But then when you look at it, it gets embarrassed and scrunches down into a photon.

And it turns out that everything else does the same thing.

Well, we have Aran's archives. If this board dies, we can just create a new one, with those as the history.

You're both right: cmg is a bizarre and useless file format, and complaining about it will accomplish nothing. As for helping ginger: you might try re-downloading the scenario. It's possible (likely) that something got corrupted in the process. If that doesn't help, post here again, and I'll reconvert the graphics myself.

One would have to be particularly unwary to walk away thinking that, because the report doesn't actually say that. The reporter is neither blinded by bias nor a liar; you're putting words in her mouth.

But this is beside the point. This writer is not a scientist. This writer is a journalist writing for a science-popularizing magazine. Try Nature or Science for real science, not popularizations.

People really, really need to separate the pop culture notions of science from actual science. Popularizers often say things that are wrong or misleading in an effort to communicate to a population that is not likely to have the background to understand the subject in its full depth or the inclination to wade through difficult details.
