I can only hope that this one will be finished in the end. Cause the last one (Soldat Team Director or something like that) wanst.

I would surely play it, if it had some nice game/replay value and a lot of useful options. Also some kind of match presentation would be cool.

damn, i remember JA2, back 3 years ago, when i dled it from Kazaa, spent countless nights and days playing that game, i even went so far as to waking up at 3am and playing it because i can't play in daytime on weekdays....eventually after many saves and loads, i conquered all the areas of the map, except for 5, then i got completely stuck (DAMN TANKS!) and gave up on the game. (I did get to be that Retarded assisent guy get shot in the face though, funny [:-censored].)

Don't expect any real-time fights or something, just a console in which you can see who kills who and that kind of info.

But, I've already made a 'beta'. (no download yet)
Some limitations/lacks though, but you can already:

-Create clan (of course)
-Buy/kick players
-Put the players on training
-Show player stats and stuff

But meantime I am faced with a new problem: lack of players in the game.
Do you wanna be in the game? Post this information:

PLAYER NAME
FAVOURITE WEAPON - from the weapons in Soldat
SECONDARY WEAPON - from the secondary weapons in Soldat
ACCURACY - 0-100: 0 is bad, 1 is god-like
AGILITY - 0-100: the higher, the faster the player will move
INTELLIGENCE - 0-100: 0 is bad, 100 is Einstein. (if this is too low, the player can even open fire at his teammates, if it's high, he will select different weapons for different situations and such)

Any suggestions?

real players/stats

this will be interesting...im curious to know how it'll turn out...

as for the stats...dont you think it'll be a bit bias?

as for your problem...there is definitely not a lack of players in the game...just check out this forum...assuming everyone that signed up for this forum played soldat...we'll use half that number and assume that 1/2 of the forum population "retired"

you still have a ton of ppl that play soldat... O_o

No, it's more like a manager game.
Online play: wow, I think that 1on1 clan fights with your players actually would work! I'll give it a try after completing the local game part.

OH, DID I TELL YA?
In the beggining of the game, you can only buy players that has an overall value of 33.


BTW, is the name 'Soldat Manager' as a fan app already taken? :/
Jimmy bones' new stats: 0,0,0
Ville's: hehe, sounds good! But I'm sorry, you cannot use a secondary weapon as favourite weapon. And plz select a new name. :)

FOR ALL MANAGER REQUESTERS:
I would prefer (demand) that you would use a real name as manager name.
Also, the clan tag must have brackets or something like that around it. (Like: [, (, {, =)
New: You can also choose if the tag shall be BEFORE or AFTER the player name.
(If I don't get info about this, I will put the tag before the name.)

Latest addings:
-3 new 'great' (you can almost listen to them) midi music tracks
-Computer clans working... barely. So far they can only buy players... but expect more.

Manager Name: M-o-D
Clan Name: The Black Army
Clan Tag: [-TBA-]

I would implement some random events (more/less training success, hurt/non available players,...) otherwise itll get too repetitive if training is always the same. Maybe also some random special offers like

"A Veteran since 0.9.4b has heard about your clan and offers player X to show him some Soldat secrets..."
(higher price but all skills increase by 2 to 4)

Also things like motivation that can be influenced by success, random happenings, special things etc. (I imagine the motivation thingy like this: If motivation is at 50%, all skills are normal. If Motivation is just 25% all skills are Value*0.75 ingame , If Motivation is at 75%, all skills are Value*1.25 ingame, means if Motivation is at 0, skills are *0.5, if Motivation is at 100%, skills are *1.5. Probably some lower multiplication values would work better).

Also training availability and success should be influenced by things like having/not having an own clanserver and its quality.

I try to make an overview...

TRAINING
influenced by: random events, circumstances (clanserver,..)

MOTIVATION **
influenced by: clan reputation (only if extremely high/low), success, random events, options (like having a talk with the player, awarding him somehow...)

CLAN REPUTATION* **:
influenced by: success, status symbols (clanserver, public server), circumstances (average player skills, friendly wars), trophys (cup victories?)

*besides a good clan reputation being nice to look at, this could influence which clan accepts challenges from you and which players accept to join your clan. After a new player joined, there should be a period a player doesnt want to leave, otherwise it would be possible, that he leaves just after one match, because clan reputation sank under his limit.

**it should be possible, that very good players (want to) leave if their motivation or the clan reputation falls too low. Also, if the clan reputation is very high, skilled players should offer to join

SKILLS
influenced by: training, motivation, events (like "player got hurt and cant play or train for X days. Skills decrease by (?)"


FAV. MAPS:
Every player has one favourite map, and when playing on it, his skills get a bonus during the match.

It would also be cool, if there were more than 1 league (probably 3 divisions so you can fight your way up) and different cups between the seasons.


I dont know if its possible for you to implement all that, but Id really love to see this realized, or at least parts of it. Keep it up, Toumaz [;)]

Toumaz
August 3, 2004, 4:20 pm
TRAINING:
Player can get from +0 to +3 in stats after training one day. It will cost $1 anyway.

MOTIVATION
Hmm, maybe... but maybe Fatique instead?

CLAN SERVER
I've been thinking about this. But that would be increasing the maximum player limit. Like; the clan begins the game with just a 4 max player server, and no spectator slots.

PLAYER LEAVES IF (reputation, naah too hard to implent) OVERALL STATS TOO LOW
Well...I guess I could implent it. Also, high-stat players won't speak with low-overall clans.

SKILLED PLAYERS OFFER TO JOIN
For free? :) Or for a lower price? But, I don't really think I'll implent this. Not now, that's for sure. But maybe later.

SEASONS
Oh my god, I have not been thinking about adding any seasons or cups or something like that. But we'll se. :) Maybe you will some day be able to create your own cups.

THANKS VILLE MK.2
Forgot to tell this, but just because you wanted to be a 0,0,0 player, I discovered some serious bugs. Also, you cost $75, but if I offer you $1, you often joins. XD

Also, one little thing: YOU CANNOT BE BOTH A PLAYER AND A MANGER IN THE GAME. I WON'T ALLOW THIS. So you better decide what, systemfeind. :)

I think I've forgot to tell something... but I can't remember what.

Id be even better if they hadnt any server at the beginning, so training is not always possible (60-75% chance that they can borrow one). but afterwards the starting slots of the server should be 6, cause CTF needs at least a 3on3 (2on2 CTF is... err.. ghey :P). Both slots and quality should be increasable, cause having a 6 slots server with an average ping of 300 and one with an average ping of 50 is certainly a difference.
It should also possible to rent public servers (up to a certain max), and each of them give you a bonus when you try to recruit players but cost you a higher monthly fee than clanservers.

No not for free. Either for a better price, or its even a player you cant find on a list, so its really something special.

Sounds nice. Seasons and cups are definitely necessary, to earn your money for paying for servers etc. Making own little cups and invite clans there could give you a reputation bonus again, even more if you win. Also the reputation (Im still thinking about it, it would fit in really good imho) rises more if you defeat a clan ranked above yours but can also fall quite a lot when you loose against some noob clan.

Btw. it would be cool if freelancing players and the players from other clans also experience changes in their skills (probably only some randomizing, but having them at the same level all the time would be a bit boring).

OTHER CLAN PLAYER SKILLS
The computer clans train players, so the skills changes each day. (but sometimes the training gives the player +0 as I said before. Or maybe the clan is out of money.)

EARN MONEY
Maybe advertsering/sponsoring? (did I spell that right?)

REPUTATION
Eh, what the heck. I'll see if I can add that to the game some day.
(That raise and fall thingy reminds me of good ol' www.nukezone.nu XD)

CONTACTING A PLAYER
I've not said anything about this, so... I'll do it now.
You click on a player in the player search screen, and click 'Contact' in the player details screen.
Then you are 'connected' to the player's computer. Then, if:
-the player not is in your clan, two buttons will be visible. 'Buy' and 'Offer.' 'Buy' buys the player for the original price, 'offer' offers the player a lower price for joining.
-the player is in your clan, one button will be visible. A 'Kick'-button, that you can find out yourself.

This is starting to sound great!
Got a couple of suggestions:

1) How about if you earn money by advertising on your site then your reputation goes down or something (noone likes ads :P)

2) Also for the server part. I think its a great idea. You could buy a server for more than renting one for a cw. But at the start you could only afford a crap one with low player slots and high ping.

3) Dunno if you have come accross this yet. If you buy a player from another clan. Would they get a replacement. Otherwise you could buy everyone from their clan then what would happen?

Anyways good luck should be a great game!

Hey, I like that. besides the clanserver you could also improve the clan homepage (but in steps). Like:

1 - No homepage
2 - Selfmade homepage somewhere on Geocities ($10, tiny rep. bonus)
3 - advanced html site on some random adfree webspace provider ($30, small rep. bonus)
4* - database supported site on paid webspace ($80, +2$ monthly fee average Rep-bonus)
5* - fully PHP&CGI integrated site on paid webspace ($150 + 5$ monthly fee, good repbonus)
6* - Community feature site, with everything possible ($250 + 10$ monthly fee, best rep-bonus)

*you can offer ads there that generate random income that might range from a value lower than the monthly cost to a value somewhat higher. But ads decrease the rep-bonus a bit (like you said).

3) Dunno if you have come accross this yet. If you buy a player from another clan. Would they get a replacement. Otherwise you could buy everyone from their clan then what would happen?


Would be good im clans stopped selling players when a certain limit is reached, and might also buy new ones themselves. Btw. Toumaz said that not every player will join your clan immediately, this is dependning on the stats of your clan.

Latest addings...

PLAYER MOTIVATION
-5 different levels of motivation: Awful, Bad, Normal, Great, Excellent
-When player get kicked from a clan, motivation -1
-When player is bought by another clan while in a clan, motivation -1
-If a player gets bought by another clan, and you buy him back within 2 days, he'll get motivation +2

...that's all for now. I'm tired right now. So damn hot weather.

CLAN HOMEPAGE
Awwwww... not now. Maybe in a future version.

WHEN PLAYER THAT IS IN A CLAN GETS BOUGHT
The clan that owned the player gets the amount of money that the player was bought for.

Let's decide some things, BTW. What shall the...
-MAXIMUM CLAN PLAYER NUMBER be?
-MAXIMUM CLAN SERVER SPECTATORS NUMBER be?
-THE STARTING DAY OF THE GAME be?

-------------------
He doesn't really want to join any clan, so to buy him you need 2x more money than he is really worth and there is a higher chance that he will decide to quit your clan.

_Every_ map is his favourite map (he get the bonus to his skills on every map) EXCEPT ctf_Death. He will refuse to play on ctf_Death [:D]

2. When I walked, my underwear were in a really funny positon, so I got several even funnier wounds on my ding-dong. X(
3. I'm a horny man, man! (I will not give any more details because my friends may be reading...)

September 28, 2004, 4:07 pm
No. I've got tired of programming non-action games. Yes, I know that it sounds strange, but I have about 50 different arrays with variables to keep track of in the game... so it's pretty damn hard to program mangager and strategy games and such. It was a quite a while since I last programmed some new things on SM, so I've forgot some of the arrays. I am currently re-making a part of the match makeup system, because I've discovered that it was pretty damn hard to allow clans to have more than one match per day. So I've decided to limit it to only one single match per day.

And we also have this thing called 'school'. Today I had a chemistry test (ok, it was easy) and on Friday I have a french test. So I will probably wait with the programming-SM part until friday evening.

Idiotic facts: I have stuffed up my home with 24 bottles à 2l of Pepsi a couple of days ago. Our local store was selling them at a damned cheap price ($7 for three bottles). So I've at least enough drinking to program later on. XD

(edit)
Forgot to tell ya; I've also been working a bit on a program called 'LyricPlayer'. The name says it all. I've made it especially for use by music teachers and such (some kind of music teacher wanted a program like this).

(edit2) Sounds boring, you mean? :D
(edit3) Reminds me about good ol' TC by some reason...

But, please notice, that Soldat Manager doesn't include the Soldat sounds. You need to have Soldat installed, and specify the path to the Soldat directory it inside Soldat Manager. Hope Michal doesn't mind.

TEH LATEST NEWS
After two f-ing weeks of debugging and code searching, I finally found the itchy-witchy variable mistake that ruined the whole match respawn part... two weeks of frustration and anger.
I have added teh über nerdy firework effect on the first page. I will maybe use it after winning a fight or so.

November 18, 2004, 2:31 pm
Well... it depends how tired of programming I am.
What do I have left to do before a beta release?...

-Match playing - that'll take me a weekend or two.
-Other clan management AI - that'll take me loong time.
-Some kind of ranking system - I'll do that in a few hours.

Christmas maybe? Or in early January? I can only tell you that God knows when it is going to be ready, ask him. (crappeh quote)

I'm currently developing the match engine.
But I've also found some damned bug in the match day part. I'll check it.

The thing that is hardest to do is actually to make the AI. The other clan managers must buy players, challange other clans, build up their servers... there will be lots of data put in that part.

I found the bug that ruined the whole f-ing match engine. It was a small line of text I used as a reminder of the many variables in the game when coding the match part of SM. But now the match engine is coming... I just (hellofalongtime) have to make the players and bullets, then the match part is done.

Toumaz
December 14, 2004, 5:40 pm
Actually it doesn't really help me. The main propose in Soldat Manager is to create a clan, buy a player, and then get up to the top of a ranked leauge, and then stay there. I need some ranking system that can go on forever.
I have two question that can give you some ranking system guidelines:
-How will the players be ranked? (overall stats, won matches ...)
-How will the clans be ranked? (overall player stats, won matches ...)

I need your suggestions for those two questions.

grand_diablo
December 14, 2004, 5:56 pm
Id say...

rank the players after their points/matches ratio.
rank the clans by their win/lose ratio and for those equal consider the difference between own and enemy caps (CTF) or frags (DM) )

Toumaz
December 14, 2004, 5:58 pm
'Key. Will be a lot of variables, though. I will get home and start working on the complete match engine right now.

Eeeh.... No, I haven't made any leauge yet, actually. No league joining at all yet. I actually have no idea how the leauge would look like. Right now I have decided to make a total ranking 'league', nothing else. But we'll see what comes up in much later versions.

Seasons could really be something... but I have a little wonder about this idea. It seems like the pace of SM doesn't fit any meaning of a season. The pace of the game, as it is now, is way too 'slow' to implent any season system.

Yesterday's work... Well, I fixed a bug in the 'Upcoming matches' page (new feature!).

December 29, 2004, 9:16 am
Unlucky: You was the only clan that had a player in the same range of levels as my player, so you became the chosen one this time.

Heh, I fixed that 2 Button bug in five seconds after spotting it, but I didn't want to restart the whole game (buying players again etc) just to remove it. I was, in other words, lazy.

Yes, I know the background is a bit annoying, but don't worry; you can select between several interfaces (just image modifications, but soon maybe also custom sounds) inside the game. So far I've made three interfaces; Default (duh), Criminal, and Soldat (the same look as the Soldat menus).

I'm also up with a small game project next to SM, just to try out if a Soldat Manager over network would work. Don't worry, it won't slow down any further development on SM. :)

Toumaz
January 11, 2005, 4:42 pm
Well... I've been away from computers for a week... and there is many new posts to read. I will see if I can answer most of 'em.

First of all.... *drumroll*...
The match engine is nearly completed!
I am sweet 'n' über happy to be sitting and pwning Jimmy Bones with myself as a player in my clan ;D (screenies of teh pwn coming soon). However there are still things to work on, like:

THE POINT LIMIT
So far, I've not inplented a point limit (nor a time limit). What do you think it shall be? I've had an idea that the point limit shall be calculated like this;
Player limit number * 15 = Teh point limit

but I have some thoughts about changing 15 into 30, but there is a chance that some players get bored when watching other clans play against each other (not implented something like that yet though).

SECONDARIES
I have not implented a way for the players to use their secondary weapon yet (maybe not so strange though 'cos I made the whole match engine in two days full of stress, sweat, and strong coffee)

THE SOUNDS
Right now you can hear the following sounds (if you have Soldat because the sounds are loaded from the Soldat sound directory) when watching a match being played:
-Weapon fire sounds
-Bullet hit sounds
-Kill sounds (when a player dies)
-Respawn sounds

Do you want me to add some other sound that'll be played upon some other event in the game?

GAME MODES
So far only Teammatch works (I haven't got time to make it possible to play CTF and Inf yet, because you need to add different player behaviour coding in those modes)
And I have a small thought that I won't implent the possibility to have an Infiltration-match. "OMG WHYES!?" someone might ask. Because I think that Inf isn't an 'original' clan gamemode. Also it would be slow gameplay, as well as it would be hard to implent.
So right now I have no plans to inplent Infiltration as a game mode in SM.
But if you think you could convince me to implent it anyway, then go ahead trying. :)

The "OMFG I HATE TEH BG"-issue
Well, I have somewhat changed the interfaces' backgrounds somewhat (except Soldat's, nothing to improve there ;D).
The Default background has now some touches of mud (brown 'n' olive) as well as some brightness changes all over the image. In my opinion it looks much, MUCH better now! The Criminal background has also been changed a bit (as I told you before, screenies will come).
Michal: I'm sorry, but I can't view that background you've created. (god damn non-PNG-supported computer).

The "Unbold teh font! Change teh font!" stuff
Yeah, I have noticed myself that the subtitles are EXTREMELY hard to read when they are bolded. I can change the interface's subtitle font, but don't expect that I'm going to unbold it inside the SM code, because it looks better on fonts that can be read even though they are bolded.
But what font do you think I should use? (Arial Narrow: naah, it's so goddamn... narrow.)
Post font suggestions please. :)

Easter eggehs (yeeeeah! bbq!)
So far I've added in... uh... *counting*:

1. Player goes mad
The easiest to find (it's something inside the game, no special things to write or somethin) but if noone finds it I'll post some clues. Someone might find it funneh. I do! ;D

2. The final thankyou
Somewhat harder, but support in form of a clue inside SM will maybe help you... otherwise I'll have to help you again.

3. A speak to some certain persons around here (texted)
Hardest... but I'll give you a clue right away: The name of a movie by Mel Brooks. But I won't tell you where you shall enter this name... (only if you beg me and visit ToumazWeb until your browser crashes)

4. The price of programming (picture 'n' sound)
Involves keyboard combinations and a mouse click. Might be hard to discover... I'll give help if noone finds it.

5. The bot tribute (sound presentation)
All I tell you is: the name of the bot is the thing that matters. Might be easier to find than you think. Do it repeatingly and you'll get it... :)

Also... I implented a cheat, but then I removed it (too powerful in my opinion). If you named yourself (your managing name) as DNA.Styx you could offer $1 to a player and they would accept. ("OK, OK!! Just don't ban my account" and other horror)

Well... that's it for now. Hope you'll like the game when it finally gets released.
Current release date: ...unknown, but expect in the late of January or February. It depends.

School has begun as well... so that'll might interfere the release date.

Also... I implented a cheat, but then I removed it (too powerful in my opinion). If you named yourself (your managing name) as DNA.Styx you could offer $1 to a player and they would accept. ("OK, OK!! Just don't ban my account" and other horror)


LOL!!!! Ahaha that made me laugh :P

I guess INF is not really necessary, maybe somewhen later as an update to the finished version.

I guess the CTF cap limit inside SM could just be like the "internationally accepted" one: 10.

and then:

DM
2on2 (Player limit 4): 50
3on3 (Player limit 6): 60
4on4 (Player limit 8): 70
5on5 (Player limit 10): 80

1on1: 20 or 30

Grand Diablo, I guess you mean Teammatch when you write DM. Also, when the 'player limit' is the player limit for both of the teams. (if you don't have more or equal players in your team than this limit, you only have one option - give up the match).
I'll implent the 'Player limit * 15' for now. Also I won't care about INF, I'll just have to de-implent it in the challange clan part. No big deal.

Please cover up your keyboards now, because in a few minutes I'll release some screenshots on the different interfaces and on the match engine. Just wait about 15 minutes or more.
Sorry. Not today, some unexpected problems struck me.

Quite god-like, huh?

You also forgot your weapons and name.

Oh, Toumaz... err. Tom (<==Is ok?), maybe you should have CTF skill, INF skill and TDM skill as some more variables, and Def/Atk as well for CTF and INF.

If you add those, make it an overall of 100% dedicated to the mode, so all that you have to do is to only use the percent of the Acc., Agi., and Int. for each gametype, mattering on the dedication to that type (must have at least 1%).
Attack and Defence is to make it that if on high Defence, the player wont cap, and on high attack, the player wont help the defenders at all.

For my dude (Black Soul?)
CTF:70%
INF:28%
TDM:2%

ATK:40%
DEF:60%Ah OK Stalky, I was just thinking, I didnt think anyone would like it 0.o

Yeah, you can call me Tom if you really want to, since my real name is Tomas. :)

I think that your idea about ATK/DEF skill sounds good, Unlucky. But right now I do not have enough time to implent anything of a system like that. But I don't think I will implent something like an indivudual CTF/INF/TDM skill system. But I like the CTF Atk/Def idea.

Something has been on my mind - you can never face game over in Soldat Manager. Therefore, I've been thinking about an idea that I'll might implent in later versions. There is a leauge, and then, about every month, then clan that is on the last position is kicked out of the league.
How about that?

Back to the release discussion... unfortunatly I do not have enough time to work so much on SM for a short time. Why? Because tomorrow, I have a Frech test. In a week, I have a chemistry test. So school takes up most of my time right now. The hardest thing in programming right now will be to implent a working computer-controlled clan AI. (buying more than one player, blah blah)

I've also been thinking about something like a SM online highscore table.

grand_diablo
January 18, 2005, 5:12 pm
Heh, I have had a French test today. The language sucks indeed, since it has too many exceptions and is written completely different than spoken (why the hell do they adapt the ending on verbs set into the past tense with "avoir" (to have) according to male/female and singular/plural only when the subject is written in the accusative. When setting them into the past tense with "etre" (to be) they do it everytime. FFS!)

I wish you good luck, success and "bonne chance" in the test ;)


Just another lil question to the release debate:
Is it possible to release a demo with - lets say - 5 clans with set players + training and challenging, just so we can get a sight at the matchengine? ;)

Hehe, maybe make an age input system, and when the player reaches a random age from 90 - 110 then they die or something :D Or maybe make the players have a respect level and if that respect level gets to 0 for more than half the team, they can sack you or something.

I like your idea, Unlucky. We'll see about it.

And now...

I have finished the Teammatch part of the match engine!
Also I have added in match statistics on the clan view pages.
Your players' motivation raises if you win a fight (the opposite if you lose a match).
Also you get $500 if you win.
I am in a hurry right now so I have to make it short, but as soon as I have finished the opponent clan AI, the CTF gamemode, and some more small things it will be a first beta release. Which will be rather soon... expect in 4-6 weeks... or maybe less.

Soldat Manager is now closer to a release than ever. Yesterday I made more work than I usually do in 2 weeks. Things like:

-When you win a match you get $500
-Computer clans can buy more than 1 player (I tried it by giving a clan $100000 :D)
-Save game function in progress...

February 2, 2005, 12:42 pm
mmh the money for a won match should differ.

In a "league match" it should be higher, and in friendly matches it should depend on the average skill difference to the opponent. Also, the money in friendly games should not come from the "off", but from the clan that lost.

Example:
Your Clan | average skill 70
versus
Clan B | average skill: 30

IF Your Clan wins -> Clan B gives you 350$
IF Clan B wins -> You give 650$ to them

So its comparable to the ESL Elo points system, where the amount of points for a won match depends on the ranking difference of both. Guess a simple syntax should make this possible (also a limit should be included, so you would never have to pay more than X $ for a loss)

Your cla

Toumaz
February 2, 2005, 1:39 pm
Dibo: That's too complicated. Also there are no diffrent matches. Just matches, no friendly or league diffrencies (spell check?).

You simply challange as many clans as you can, and those points are added to the league points. Also you get those 500 bux from... let's say... a sponsor. Noone of the clans give money to each other upon match victories.

I'm in a hurry right now... more info later.

Although there would have to be a plus for hacking, otherwise no-one would do it. For example, if you hack it increases your chances of winning by 50% but you have a 60% chance of getting fined alot of money.

I found the bug in the save game section after 2 seconds of reading it through... When the big evil pirate ship (SM) were restoring the match number from the miserable pirate slave (the save file) it actually returned the team player number. Whoops. :) Fixed in one second.

Right now I'm pretty angry on the match engine, since your player can actually take suicide with his own bullets (when not intended! damnit I got angry!) and especially with the M79. And I recently started working on the match contacting system for the opponent clans, as well as the match fight engine for the opponent clans.

Yes, it supports CTF. It's a normal part of the match engine, nothing special with that.

Right now I'm working with the computer clan match engine. This was harder than I thought at first, so it will probably take a long while. Nothing more special right now.

Well, rushing won't fix anything, and no, you should post helpful things to help fix the bug.

Tom, could you try making the clan match engine just a simple counter, which is the O/A of one clan =+ the O/A of the other? E.G:
Clan [CN](Clan Noob) has an overall of 7
Clan {CV} (Clan Veterans) has an overall of 33.

These are added into a counter, which makes 40.
If a random number inside this number is pick that is 7 or under, it would make [CN] Win.
If it went over 7, {CV} would win.

Maybe thats what you are doing o.0

HARRRRRR... very smarty idea there Unlucky... I will might use that method instead of my current one in this first release.

Because;

February 23, 2005, 9:38 am
if life[0]>0||life[1]>0

THIS IS THE LINE THAT DESTROYED THE WHOLE MATCH ENGINE.

I replaced ||, which means 'or', with &&, which means 'and'.
Before the match would go on even if one player would be dead, and the first team always got the point for the kill even if the other player killed him.

Now it's fixed.

Everything is done.

A release is imment.

The match engine that is used when your clan is involved in a fight is somewhat slow, but much more describable. It tells when a player dies, respawns, and that stuff. The other, script match engine is MUCH faster, and is used when two computer clans fight.

But there's one thing that will delay it slightly... two words:
FRENCH TEST

@ MercyM: Toumaz already said he has a french test, so the release will be coming once he has that over and done with. Also, nobody cares if you've been waiting a long long long (...) time because Toumaz is making this without earning from it, and he's making it for all of us to enjoy. Stop being selfish and appreciate the effort he is putting into this project.

Bah, morons. Take your time Toumaz, passing your test > Soldat, Soldat Manager and any of the silly idiots on these forums ._.

Soldat Manager: I have found some new bugs in the SM match engine, but I think I have fixed them all, so the release won't be delayed. However I will have another glace on the match engine during the weekend. Then I'll might release it on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

Selecting "ignore" didnt work, the game crashed after pressign "abort" then.

Happened:
Somewhat around day 6 or 7, the day before my only player lost a match against another clan, the next day another 1on1 match was ment to take place, but my player joined another clan after the day he lost the 1on1.

Still, the game seems nice so far, wlthough there should be some more cheap freelancers on start.

you can add extra players lazehboi. open a notepad document then type in:
Player name
1-10 (i think) in accordance to your players primary weapon e.g. 1=deagles
1-4 for secondary weap
0-100 for accuracy
0-100 for agility
0-100 for intelligence
then click save as and drop down to all files then save it as playername.pl
and that should work.

2 bugs I have are

2) At first there are so many transactions with all my players leaving but after a while none of my players are bought :/

And the players doesn't leave your clan - they simply get buyed by other clans.

Either...
The match gets cancelled if you don't have a player on match day (Convo between leaders and maybe other players too)Make a clanned player 20% more so they have less chance of being boughtHave the match delayed until you have a player

If you are having problems saving, are you sure you have actually called the .smg something. When you click save you have to actually rename the file from ".smg" to something like "clan.smg", otherwise it wont save. Creating a save folder doesnt do anything, you can save it anywhere.

You know you can just beat a few matches and then just smash the next day button and buy your players back? That way you can boost up the stats quite fastly. I only played 33 matches so I could get Grand Diablo. And now there is this sort of design flaw that when someone buys my player (giving me money) I can buy him back with less money. This way I never have to play a single match again. And just look at my game date, it's over 2006 already.

Kazuki always multiclans when i play it too :O
And there is a save bug,sometimes at random times saving,it just can't write the byte and it erases,and crashes the whole program.
Happens randomly,could be the first time saving a file,could be the 30th.

And..one is a newb,other..still a newb,nevermind on one being better :P

Any estimated release date of 1.0b?
I simply can't wait.
In the next year,there better'd be an online version!!!

Right now I'm working as a practicant at my local library, and will do that for two weeks.

quote:Originally posted by vegklToumaz, you shuld add somewhere:[code]if (whateva variable you are using for stats)>100
(whateva variable you are using for stats)=100[/code]

I have done that, only that I forgot the array ID, so it checked the first players stats instead of the stats of the player that had been training. :)

However, SM 1.0b is cancelled.

Instead, SM 1.0.1 will come in a month or two...

...this time with multiplayer support.
Definition: Soldat Manager multiplayer - a system that lets you chat with and challange other human players in real time.

Also I'm incredibly disappointed that noone has found even a single easter egg yet. I can give you some clues to some of them (in fact all of them)...

1. How good are your eyes? Become Soldatish and look carefully...
2. Read the game manual - and I mean really read it.
3. [above]
4. Don't you guys get angry on me from time to time? Let your aggressions out!
5. Control-alt-right mouse button... but on what?
6. In the beginning of all things, enter the name of a movie with Mel Brooks from 1991 in a certain data field.

I hope that will help you people out there to find some easter eggs.

Personally, I would like to have a separated Soldat Manager forum.

Final words... checked my homepage's visitor stats a couple of days ago... I was somewhat disappointed. Only 32 downloads.

"Oh, we don't care about the bugs, just release it so we can play it!"
But I know what happens if I do that.
Then about a week later their all going to:
"Oh, the game is so buggy! It's unplayable! We don't want it!"

You are lucky. This is the real manual, the stuff above is just bull[IMAGE].
First of all, start a trainer program in the background.
This is important, without it you will not be able to run SM properly.
Then start Soldat and name your player to, let's say, DNA.Styx. Then join any random server.
Now it's time. Start cheating and be downright evil to everyone. Express yourself using bad words.
Cheat in all possible ways - like wallhack, player control, speedhack, barret in close combat.
Repeat the above until you get banned. Find out who the server admin is and spam him until the end.
Now it would be a good time to go to the Soldat Forums and create a topic named
"OMFG I GOT BANNED! WHYES!?" in which you wonder why you got banned even though you know why.
Wait until your topic gets locked and then start harassing the moderator that locked it in
the whole forum. By now you shall have get at least one warning.
Now start another topic named "[IMAGE] DA FORUM" in which you hate the forum and all the members.
Congratulations, you are likely banned now! Now you can start SM and begin to play it.
Repeat the process whenever you're going to play SM again.

Please notice: The text above is a joke. Don't try it at home unless you are an idiot.

uhm..read the manual

'Players
Making your own players is very simple. First of all, you can make a copy of any of the files in the Soldat Manager\Players folder to get a template. In this example I will use the player 'Toumaz' as a template. Player files has the file extension '.pl'. Then open the copied file in Notepad (or some other text editor).
You will a number of lines somewhat like this:

Toumaz
3
3
24
21
30

What does the lines mean? Well, starting from the top:

First line
This line shall contain the player's name.

Second line
Sets the players favourite weapon. Use the weapon numbers in Soldat.
For people that doesn't have Soldat:

1 - Desert Eagles
2 - HK MP5
3 - Ak-74
4 - Steyr AUG
5 - Spas-12
6 - Ruger 77
7 - M79
8 - Barret M82A1
9 - FN Minimi
0 - XM214 Minigun

Third line
Sets the players secondary weapon. Again, this is the same as the weapon numbers in Soldat.
For people that doesn't have Soldat:

1 - USSOCOM
2 - Combat knife
3 - Chainsaw
4 - M72 LAW

Fourth line
Sets the players accuracy. Can be set in the range 0-100.

Fifth line
Sets the players agility. Can be set in the range 0-100.

Sixth line
Sets the players agility. Can be set in the range 0-100.

When then saving the player file, you shall name the file after your player name. For example, the player Toumaz is saved as 'Toumaz.pl'.

That's all you need to know about making players.'

not hard

Really? Multiplayer?
That sounds really, really good Toumaz, just does it have a lobby? Or is it IP based?

JiggaBlue
March 30, 2005, 7:54 am
mmmmmm i love you.

Toumaz
March 30, 2005, 8:25 am
Yes, multiplayer.

It's IP based. I haven't got internet at home, otherwise I would have made a lobby system and put my computer as a lobby. Also I think it's impossible to create a lobby in GM, as you cannot have multiple connections open at the same time. I could of course use an external program that connects to the lobby, but... as I said I do not have the possibility of hosting a lobby server. Sad but true.

Some multiplayer features:

PLAYING MATCHES (of course!)
Like the computer simulation (between bot clans), to not create masta-lag.
But this time with a bet system: the two clans bet an amount of money ($0, 100, 250, 500) that will be put in a pot. Then the match is played - the winnner gets the money in the pot. It's that simple.

CHAT
1) A separate chatroom
2) While contacting other managers (to arrange a match)
3) Private messages
4) After matches

However there are some things I'll need to work on some more. If one player shuts down SM by force (ending the program process) it will not be registered on the server, and the player will remain in the manager list. The same if the program errors out (however I haven't found a single bug of that kind).

The multiplayer system will maybe lag like hell sometimes as well, because I have used broadcasting (everyone sends to everyone) with guaranteed messaging (eek, laggeh!). However this was somewhat faster than having the server recieve the guaranteeds and then re-send them to all other players... so don't worry about the broadcasting.
Also there are few messages sent; when buying/kicking/training players, chat messages, challanges, and a few more situations.

But SM 1.0 saves will not be compatible with 1.0.1, so you need to start all over again. Sorreh.

Also lots of bugfixes. There were one bug that caused a whole hell of a lot other bugs: the match were removed from the match array before the match stats had been set. Oh God what a mistake I made. This didn't cause any sh!ts if you only had one upcoming match, but if you had more than one... chaos.

If you made a lobby system, how big would it be? I might get a server for ya, but cannot guarantee great speeds...

Toumaz
March 31, 2005, 11:04 am
How big? Well... the lobby server itself wouldn't be more than about 650 kb. The traffic would be nothing to worry about.

SM 1.0.1 is now completed - expect a release very soon (perhaps even today...!).

(editez)

I stumbled upon Soldat.int.pl while searching for SM using Google - and found this:

Suggestion: If weapon sounds from soldat folder are used, can weaponnames be used too?
Also, people keep buying my clan member on the day I have a match. I cannot buy anyone else because no members means no overall rating, and so I must buy myself a 13 soldier while the other clans have 91s. Is this the way it is supposed to work? Perhaps an option to refuse people wanting to buy players?

Lastly, my 79 with excellent motivation is consistently beaten (12 in a row) by a 62 with awful motivation. We have the same weapon choice so is this bug or bad luck on my part?

Toumaz
April 19, 2005, 4:03 pm
Suggestion comment: I know that this issue is quite annoying. If someone has a suggestion for this then come forward and tell me. Refusing players transactions - naah, but perhaps that the player price goes higher when the player is in a clan with perhaps 25% of the org. player price.

It's bad luck. I've searched the match engine for several bugs, including this non-existing M-79 bug, but it doesn't exists. Actually there are often players damaging themselves with the M79 by keing too close to the enemy.

Ezko
April 23, 2005, 7:20 am
How about, if the player motivation is excellent, they don't want to leave their clan and so their price goes up? Vice versa for awful.
