Game Collection

R.I.P. trontimes repository

The information below on this page is no longer up to date. Parts of the old configs linked here are available on http://resource.armagetronad.net/resource/vov/games but they will not work properly for the purpose of multimode servers. You can still copy the important settings from the files there for your own configs though!

Also, repo-independent configs for a couple games are available under http://resource.armagetronad.net/resource/vov/configs now.

Info

This is a list of games in the collection currently hosted at http://www.trontimes.tk/repository/ which aims to collect different Game Variations as files to easily RINCLUDE. Includes lines to paste into your client's Console (pasting requires v0.4) for either local/LAN enjoyment or to set a server up (after /admin in the chat; or in your configs).

List last updated on: 2015-02-13


From http://www.trontimes.tk/repository/files/games/info.txt (and updated stuff)

This is a collection of different Armagetron Advanced game settings. If you INCLUDE/RINCLUDE them you'll get what it says on the tin.

At time of writing it's located on trontimes.tk and if you don't have that as your resource path, it may sometimes depend on it being up.


You can add your own settings to it, encouraged would be these guidelines:

  • Full games need a physics reset at the start (like reset_vov_A.cfg) to guarantee proper loading.
  • No access restriction related settings (except opening it for all, that's fine :D) and no access exploits.
  • Comment what stuff is (minimum: "WTF IS THIS:" line at the top of the file), unless it's clear from the file name.
  • And of course common sense like putting your game into the right folder (or creating one) etc.


If you want your awesome settings added to the collection and don't know how, put them on the wishlist at the bottom of the page. And maybe notify vov/NinjaPotato.

The games/ folder:
Categories: These group by game type, e.g fortress (capture enemy zone) from arena (classic kill em all)
Names: Files usually have 3 name endings to watch out for:
_v1.cfg  <- full game; rinclude once and you're done (example: sumo/bar_v1.cfg).
_p1.cfg  <- p for patch; they are usually to be applied to an already existing game.
            of the folder type you found it in and just change one aspect (e.g sumo/killdetection_p2.cfg)
_t1.cfg  <- t for testing; probably an unfinished config, but still usually fine to use.
            They might be removed in the future though.
            This will not impact existing servers running on them already.
the numbers are ofc version numbers that change as stuff is added or fixed.

Usually the files are well commented too, so if you want more info about one look there. Or just try it on a server or local game.

Games may not work on all server versions. For example currently Shooting or CTF only works on special sty+ct branch servers. It may say it in the file.

For questions or if something does not work contact either the gametype's author, or also vov/NinjaPotato on IRC (freenode.net, armagetron) or on the Armagetron forums. IRC is preferred.

"How To" and Tips

- On how to access the console on clients as well as client hosted games - see its wiki page.

- If you cannot paste these into the chat or the console and/or they get cut off, increase SPAM_MAXLEN.

- If you want to completely restore a server's default settings after testing/changing stuff going nuts:

  1. RINCLUDE the physics reset (see below)
  2. INCLUDE settings_dedicated.cfg

(this method is a bit hacky but usually works, the physics reset is needed because settings_dedicated might miss stuff)
