Re: ESO Tracker

I think there is a bit of confusion what is actually counted here. So as far as I can see in the ESO Tracker source code, it does read the commands from the records file. So you cannot map mouse clicks directly to actions here.

What is interesting here is how the BANG engine handles repeated clicks, .....

Re: The future of Escape

Just noticed it :( . I was really hoping that after the AOE2 & AOE3 tournaments it would attract enough attention to make it sustainable. Escape has definitely brought AOE tournaments to the next level.

Re: Tests to find the REAL Mill base gathering rates

Keep in mind that vsync doesn't have a effect on gather rates in MP given that it uses dynamic update times that are synced between the players. Also gather rates in general are different between MP and SP due to the double gather bug, though farms have been mostly unaffected.

Re: ESOC-flavored UHC2

A quick not regarding selectionLimit: Depending on the value change it may break recs. Don't think that it would on an increase of the selectionLimit, but could break on an decrease of the value. We will do some tests to see if it is safe on an increase of the limit.

Nah, I didn't capture the gold values here in this log. I'll do a rerun of a test log later with the actual gold current value.

For reference:
Pos is the new anim position between 0 and the animation length.
Clock is the time elapsed since the unit has spawned.

Both values are seconds here as float valu .....

Re: Gathering rate is not balanced!

Well, given that it uses floats internally it can happen that it doesn't update for a swing. I also noticed that if there is that double gather you also hear. Especially on a mine you will hear it twice in a row.

Re: Gathering rate is not balanced!

Interesting enough the gathering of resources is bound to the animation loop rather than the update loop.

For those who are interested how the gather resource update is calculated:
Animation Length * Target Unit Work Rate (Farm, Berries, ect...) * Global Work Rate * Handicap
