Re: Blockout should be recognised as a E-sport

Sounds like a great idea :-) Don't you think that the audience and the player community are simply too small for such an event? 3D Mania is currently played by two players who can reach 200K+ scores. If one doesn't show up, the other one is immediately the winner. But maybe an event would get some p...

Re: Set up the blockout2 code online?

Hmm, for C++ I don't know of any services. Maybe something like https://www.gitpod.io/ (50h/month/user free) is helping you out?

Re: Try my online BlockOut version

I'd also like to know if there are more people out there playing this game, but I think there aren't that many...and those of us who do, are "oldschool" PC gamers.

Re: Try my online BlockOut version

I think it's great you're investing time to bring Block Out to other platforms. Still, this forum is rarely used and I think you won't get much feedback from here.

I for myself only play on my computer, so I'm not of much help, sorry!

Best regards,

Re: BlockOut2 online with points upload

I'm myself a software developer and can tell you that it's not going to be simple to transform this SDL-based program into a web application. Or in other words: the GFX-part will probably need to be completely rewritten. Don't want to be the bad guy here, but without a good web game developer who ha...

Please remove cheat scores

There are obvious cheat scores in the online ranking:

1st place Flat Fun: 0 Lines but 500K points
1st place Flat 3x3x18: 7 Lines but 1M points

Thanks!

Best regards,
Dominik

Re: Update on Blockout2 ?

Vienna, Austria - yep, central Europe. My biggest rival is probably Andres CR and he is, my best guess is he's from CR, the check republic - also central Europe ;-)

Re: Why only 36 gamers on " Out of control "

World ranking is an average of your 5 best games in the last two years. In other words: you have to have 5 games in the last two years to be on that list. Block Out is not played by that much people :)

Re: Update on Blockout2 ?

You can download the source code from http://www.blockout.net/blockout2/ (second link). Don't think they have a GitHub page yet.

Re: Out of Control 350K club :D

Haha, got the same feeling when I reached 200K in 3D Mania and was still so far away from Andres CS, some years later I hold the record myself. Your time will come ;-)

Re: Cannot upload high score - HTTP error 500 - edited, pls

Yep, it's no longer actively maintained. I'm very glad at least the highscore pages are still online. BUT: as I told you, I'm able to upload my scores...so maybe you just can't upload 2.4 scores with 2.5 version or something like that?

Re: Gondran's unusually high BPM

I also have BPM's of 80+, Basic though, not Extended. But it is possible, I even uploaded a video once :-)

Did you have a look at the highscores? Are they weirdly computer-AI-like? No errors at all?

Best regards,

It could take a while... just to manage expectations.
