Better Name?
« on: October 31, 2005, 08:17:55 PM »
I need some better names and better descriptions for the two colony games I made. So I would like you to give me better names for them and better descriptions.
The only rule is that the names have to be 7 or under letters  :)

I like your description I would make it a little less Me! Me! with my name in the front  :P   and read my reply in the other post for why those names will not work

spirit1 to spirit9 would work but after you can't go further because the restriction block it


so i would say that each map creator got is own id based on the same criteria like i dont know spirit would be SPT (2 first letters then the last one) or me would be LON

lets say i do a map so its a colony population map it would me named LONCE01

LON= lordly dragon for the purpose of it
C= colony
E=eden
=01 map id

so basicly first three letters would be the creator 4 th would be the type 5th would be the race and the two last are digits for a id

for the 4th letters code could go as follow

C=colony
MM= multiplayer (in this case the 5th would be M 2)
S= could be  starship
M= mission ( the 5th would be a race of course not like for multiplayer)
O= others (maybe there is more type of map but as far as i can remember there is no use map sething kind of game *as mean in broodwar*)

what do you think?

Running, scrambling, flying

Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die

sounds good to me but I think the C has to be at the start of the DLL file name.
I can check that later but I have to go feed some sheep right now.

Yeah, name prefixes are required. It's especially bad for multiplayer levels. You need the prefix "m" for multiplayer, then the next letter denotes the type of multiplayer game. (See the SDK for details in required exports.h). They also follow that 2 letter prefix with the number of players (max) that the level supports.
