Talk:Playing the Game

From Armagetron

This page needs to be split up. Any volunteers? We need to divide it into "How to play the game" and "How to use the program". --Lucifer 03:09, 26 August 2006 (CDT)

Old Discussion

Is there a way to tell whos logged in and working on what? cuz i dunno if your here fixing the description "blah" or accidentally left it and logged off lol..


No, no way. I'm not working on it, though, so knock yourself out. --Lucifer

Um, can we drop stuff like "non-official" and "official"? We don't need all this weird formality. :) There isn't really anything official anyway, except releases. So talk about variations of the game that people have set up. Make a Variations section on this page, and then underneath put some subheadings for the variations, and those would link to a page about them.

That page should contain information for players playing that variation and also information for server admins to set up a server under that variation.

Come to think of it, make a new page that lists variations, and we'll transclude that page here and in the Server Admin page.

Just try to keep in mind that there's nothing "official" or "non-official" about it. In the game we try to provide primitives that server admins and players can use to make games that are fun to play, and that's all this "Fortress mode" thing is. It's just a primitive game object that map makers can put on the grid and server admins can do so too.

Now you can see how I meant to do the transclusion. :) Edit Game Variations to add new variations and it'll automatically be included on pages where it's been included.

Then you accidentally did pretty much exactly what I asked? ;) If you edit the game variations page and don't see the results immediately, it's because mediawiki has cached a page. Edit that page (something trivial, like fixing a spelling error) then the cache will be refreshed.
