Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Suggestions and Ideas

Dunno if this has been suggested, but it would be nice with a “lock” option on items, so they can’t be sold. So you can set which items you want to save (to use for crafting other items later) and don’t have to risk forgetting the plan and selling them off by accident.

Topic: General Gaming / TKKN - 36 kb of absolute brilliance

Does anyone remember TKKN, a very simple survive-as-long-as-possible type of game? You control a spaceship with the arrow keys while being bombarded by different types of bullets from all directions. It was made in 1999 by a Japanese guy, and circulated a bit on game forums for a while where I found it.

Using only 36 kb, it’s very plain. And very hard. And very repetitive. And HUGELY addicting!

I made this thread as I think it deserves one :D You can find the game at the developers website, http://homepage1.nifty.com/bee/tk/ (link at top of page) along with a nice gameplay video.

Maybe a small competition here for who can survive the longest? I’d tell you my old record, but I need to search my old hard drive for the screenshot to back it up… =)

Problem with skaft its that doesn´t play another map beside Western.When have to play another map he don´t doing very well
,and in addition he sucks with awp.

I’d like to correct that – I actually do play other maps, and I tend to do pretty well on any map. But granted, Western is my favorite among the ones up now. I’ll admit to sucking with AWP though, if you only want players who play the way you do then fair enough.

Well thanks for not bothering to read 10 lines of text before commenting. The in-game feature isn’t working for me.

Topic: CS Portable / Feature requests

Several times I’ve seen people getting told off for not making a feature request in the appropriate thread/place. Now I have one I’d like to make and can’t find any info on where to post it? I feel the “Using this forum” sticky should contain a few links to useful threads such as an official one for “requests goes here”.

I know there is an ingame function for this, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I just get an error message saying “failed to open stream: no such file or directory” whenever I try to post or vote in there.

The feature I’d like to request is an ignore list. There are several players in the game which I’ve had to vote-mute multiple times due to spamming. Muting solves it temporarily, but they can just leave and reenter the game to annoy me some more. So I’d like the option to perma-mute such players by adding them to a personal blacklist.

Thanks!

Topic: CS Portable / Chat Filter reports

“played” is filtered. As is “assault” and “assassin”. Even names with “assassin” in it gets filtered.

Personally, I consider the chat filter a bad implementation. I’m guessing it takes a lot of time and work to get it to ONLY filter what you want it to filter. Meanwhile, it’s causing ALL players frustration by not being able to chat normally. Even if you eventually get a bad-word-exclusive filter, people who want to say bad stuff will still be able to say it through different methods of circumventing the filter. It just seems like a lot of effort with no advantage, which would be fine by me if it wasn’t for the fact that it obstructs my normal, non-offensive chat like “s**t, nice shot”. Well I censored myself there to be on the safe side of the forum rules. Anyway, I don’t see why a chat filter would improve the community. Setting and enforcing the rule “don’t be rude or offensive” should be enough.

Topic: CS Portable / Request for tips to improve playing (for below average players)

First of all, don’t feel restricted to AWP. There are a lot of players who seem to have the mindset that it’s the one weapon to use (especially in discussions on how to improve), but that’s not the case. I have a kpd of 3.33 (rank 1) and only ever use AK/M4. Not trying to brag, there are many players a lot better than me, but I consider myself a good player with respectable stats and I’ve gotten them without sniping more than maybe 200 kills out of 34000. Granted, if I was vsing someone with very high AWP skill I would probably lose most of the time. But most players using AWP aren’t all that skilled, and if I just get the first hit, I’ll get the kill most of the time since the hit disrupts their aim. Anyway, feel free to snipe if you want but don’t think it’s the only way to become good at the game.

A few pointers (assault rifles and general):

  • Don’t spray and pray, unless up very-very close. The further away the enemy is, the fewer bullets you should shoot at a time. I rarely hold the mouse button for longer than 3 shots, or at least I try to. Makes you more accurate as well as conserves ammo.
  • Make sure deagle is your quick-switch. Press Q ASAP if you run out of ammo with an enemy in sight and use the pistol instead. Also good to use if you find you’ve held the mouse button on primary for too long without killing, (EDIT: or if you see someone while reloading).
  • Know the map and hiding places, always check for sneaky bastards hiding behind corners or boxes.
  • Keep an eye on your teammates using the radar. If a white dot turns black, it means that teammate is getting hit (but it could be just from a bad fall) indicating where the enemy is. Also on a map like InDust where there are two passages, you can go on one and keep track of what happens to your team on the other route. Or if you suddenly notice there are no white dots where the other route should be, then that’s probably where the enemy is.
  • Play around with the game settings. There are a lot of things that can help you, like making the game run smoother, making enemies more visible, mouse sensitivity etc.
  • Try to anticipate where enemies might pop up, and try to keep your aim as close to that point as possible while still allowing yourself to see all you need to see. Just to try and get it so that if they DO pop up there, your aim is already on their heads (EDIT: This is not a camping strategy, try to apply this all the time even while moving).

Anyway, dunno if that’s useful or stuff everyone already knows, but just a few things off the top. Good luck, be nice and enjoy the game =)

Topic: CS Portable / Annoying "Features"

The voice chat feature bothers me. I’ve never been in a situation where it’s useful, but I’ve been in hundreds where people are just using it to be annoying. A personal “Block All Voice Chat” setting would be immensely relieving.

Topic: CS Portable / Suggestion - Ranking System Overhaul

I don’t personally mind the ranking system as it is, but I find it tricky to see what I need in order to improve it. It seems the scoreboard only lists by total kills, not KDR. I’m rank 2, so it would be nice to know what KDR I need for rank 1. Any way to find out?

Topic: CS Portable / cs_italy

I joined a cs_italy game just a couple of days ago, hadn’t seen it on Portable before and was excited as I love that map. It was just as I remembered it except there was no opera song by the T spawn, oh well. Now I tried to host it myself but it’s not in the map list… I guess someone added it manually when I played it? Does anyone have a URL or something for it?

CS Portable name: skaft
Kongregate name: Skaft
Kills/deaths: 7723/3454
Rank: 12
Age: 23
Weapon of choice: M4 > AK
Timezone/area: GMT+1 (Sweden)
Previous clans: None. I’ve been wanting to try it but haven’t found one that seemed suitable. This one seems more mature than most so I’ll give it a go =)
How long have you been playing CSP: About a month, but I’ve played CS and CSS quite a bit in the past.
Anything else: There are quite a few maps I’m not very familiar with (I prefer the classics), but if that’s a problem I’ll consider it homework. Also, I don’t know if “Propper grammar” was intentional, but it’s hilarious =)
