Superscalar 1.0

timothy on 02/18/2009

Screenshot titled "In this example, I won by targeting effigy, who was easier to kill. Had we been using Superscalar, effigy would have been doing 300% damage to me by the end of the game, while taking only 33% of the normal damage."

Superscalar is designed to level the playing field, giving inexperienced players an advantage while increasing the difficulty for regular players. No more will you have to hold back or intentionally miss when playing guests.

The script determines the difference in score between each player, and adjusts the amount of damage they inflict on each other accordingly. The player in the lead will do less damage per shot, while the other one does more.

The damage scale is calculated per player, so equally skilled players should generally do equal damage. Damage scales quickly as the point difference increases. This can be modified as needed by editing the scale numbers at the top of the script.

Host using one of the standard gametypes like Every Man for Himself or King of the Hill. Do not host using the Netscript gametype.

Bonus: I've included Host_Advantage.lua in the package. I attribute all of my success last year to this script, but now that I can't really host anymore there's no point in keeping all the fun to myself.

Quantum of Lua 150.svn

timothy on 12/23/2008

A small collection of Lua experiments you probably shouldn't host.

Notes for version 150.svn:

2 small bug fixes.

New Scripts:

Spawn_Kamping.lua - Players respawn with 3x health and a rocket launcher. Kill them within 10 seconds to score bonus points. Each second after they spawn players lose 10% of their extra health and are worth one less point. Who should you target? You'll know by the color of their shirts.

Homing_Rockets.lua - Now it's even easier to home in on your enimies. Just aim in their general direction and wait for the sound that tells you it's time to fire. But be careful. It's hard to maintain a lock at a large distance and if you hear the juggernaut then find something to hide behind.


Fly-by-wire rockets can now be disabled by individuals.

Quantum Loched King of the Hill displays carnage report as time.

Nice, but Missing Something The Great Pillar

timothy on Jul 5th, 2011, Version 1.1

I can't put my finger on it but there just seems to be something missing.

Try texturing that white column on the right side of the page with some screenshots and I'll review this again.


Noticed a pattern with @Dis, it seems almost all his reviews are one star. Don't feel bad, just ignore his comments. -at least my stuff is safe from his inane chatter.

Better Name Radiance Shapes

timothy on Jun 30th, 2011, Version 1.0

...but not best. If you end up making a plugin, are you going to have to rename this to Radiance Plugins?

Screenshots would be nice to help illustrate the difference.

The Infinity shapes file contains the these wonderful characters in the filename -- [M?ê?]. I've had trouble using files like that in the past with Windows.

Thanks for releasing this, but I'm concerned about the license. Are we free to modify and redistribute the source code with attribution?

I'm also curious about the name of that awesome font used in the screenshot. The closest match according to WhatTheFont is Base Mono Narrow Thin, which looks similar but I'm not convinced they are the same.


Oops. Forgot that including a random YouTube video with every review was going to be my new shtick.

Incredible Collection Second Quest

timothy on Mar 28th, 2011, Version 2.0.0

An excellent collection of maps for the most part. Unfortunately some of the original Infinity netmaps were so awful no amount of work could correct them.

I only wish the engine could be updated to automatically substitute these maps whenever someone attempted to host the originals online, banishing Duality and Wrath No More? from living memory.

Except for Sands Serif, which is the only map worse than the original.

Almost Perfect Two Pfhor One

timothy on Mar 14th, 2011, Version Unofficial .5

These screenshots were surprisingly good. They are properly cropped, the HUD is hidden, and I can't even fault the lack of anti-aliasing because you are obviously using software rendering. There are even labels under each picture. The only small problem I can find is that you did not hide the weapon from view, but because it is not obvious how to disable this I can't deduct too many points from your score.

In fact, I guess I must concede that they're basically perfect, which makes it such a shame that your subject is such a bland, generic set of maps. The lack of recent maps, and high quality and level of detail in the awful Deeze Maps must have shifted my overton window of acceptable maps because I had forgotten just how bad maps could be. Thank you for the reminder, and keep up the good work. With several years of practice you'll be turning out quality maps in no time.

Nice Work Bleeding Requisite

Awe-full A Netpack

timothy on Feb 11th, 2011, Version v1.0

Low resolution, with huge black borders and a giant HUD at the bottom. These screenshots make almost every mistake in the book.

Aside from the technical problems, the composition is poor and the lighting in inadequate. Is that a wall or a hallway? What weapon is that on the floor? Who was that masked man, anyway? Everything is so dark, I just can't tell. Try using the lighten filter in Photoshop to bring out those details and make the colors pop!

Adequacy The Four Elements

timothy on Jan 10th, 2011, Version 1.0

I've realized it's unfair of me to review maps based solely on the screenshots, so I'll follow this to its logical conclusion and just review the screenshots.

You've included a nice variety here. Ten screenshots provide a good overview of the map. All of the pictures have unique labels, the HUD has been hidden, and there are no black borders surrounding the play area.

Unfortunately the screenshots show significant aliasing, and in several you can see the VML interface.

I recommend enabling 16x anti-aliasing and increasing the resolution to at least 1080i. You may also want to include a side-by-side comparison between the regular and simplified versions of the map.

It's (a) wonderful (life) Cesspi7

timothy on Dec 21st, 2010, Version 1.0

Overall, Cesspi looks like a great collection of maps. The snow effect is supper effective. Spiroche7e is clearly the standout map. Everything is done in a beautiful minimalist style reminiscent of the original Marathon architexture. You can clearly see the evolution from earlier works like Werefrog evident in these new maps.

Nice Work Gorans Jjarro Set

timothy on Nov 11th, 2010, Version 1.5

Version 1.5 is a great improvement. I'd say they're just about perfect. With shaders and anti-aliasing enabled, even old maps look amazing now.

Thanks for finishing the set! Gorans Jjarro Set

timothy on Oct 25th, 2010, Version 1.0

The Jjarro set is the weakest of the four. Something about the textures just looks wrong. The other sets are still a huge improvement, so it's worth downloading so that everything matches.

Impressive Armed Goblins

timothy on Sep 16th, 2010, Version 1.0

I'm sure some of you are going to write this off as a joke review, but I think this could add a new challenge to games. I'd be even more impressed if you could somehow make a big head mode, like in GoldenEye 64. I think someone wrote a headshot lua script that would work well with it.

Oh, and how did you get the physics to make the screen size smaller too?

timothy on Sep 7th, 2010, Version RAINBOW

I wish more people used these textures. RED is a great Arena map. BLUE is a lot of fun to hit the water switch and watch everyone float away. GREEN is great shotgun map, but make sure you're hosting for HOST ATVANTAGE. The rest aren't that good. DO'NT PLAY RAINBOW unless you unmerge with atQ and modify the lua to remove the annoying bobs and sound. Overall, above average pack, but could use some work. Maybe some original maps too.

Beggars can't be choosers Atomic Map Pack

timothy on Apr 29th, 2010, Version

Very, uh, classic design. There are a lot of rechargers and powerups you don't often see in multiplayer maps. Lots of winding stairs and long corridors. The only map that really stands out is the one with the river running down the middle.

There are plenty of weapons and ammo scattered around, which makes these definitely playable compared to older maps, but the rest of the design can't keep up with modern packs.

2MUCH4OG (the 4 is for F) Marathon: W'rkncacnter

timothy on Apr 1st, 2010, Version 1.0

Review of screenshots only. Will play and update rating later.

UPDATE: The readme was a little sparse, but I finally managed to get everything installed correctly. I ran out of ammo on the second level and died fighting a juggernaut with a tozt. However, if the other 23 levels are as good as the second, this scenario is easily worth 5 stars.

Impressive [M] Harmonium

timothy on Feb 16th, 2010, Version 1.0

This map features a number of very interesting areas and details. I had to stop and look around a number of times while playing. I had overlooked this until now because the screenshots showed off some of the worst areas of the map. I hate those lines along the paths in the second shot, and the main room in the first shot looks boring. The side paths around the central area are where all of the interesting stuff is located.

As a netmap, it wasn't very fun and I'm not sure why. Many of the areas seemed too isolated, but that has worked well in other maps. I'm not a fan of those really thin platforms, but they were well marked and useful for the most part. There was enough ammo. The map just didn't seem to flow very well.

I think you could make some amazing single player environments if you wanted. Even something in the KTA style could be a lot of fun, without all the extra work of designing a scenario. Game flow is much less important in single player maps where you're not backtracking a lot, and it would be a better place to showcase some of the detailed work that doesn't really belong in a netmap.

As a standalone work this is a poor map, but with some more effort I think you could take some of the ideas you tried here and expand them into an interesting pack.

Is this Paradise Lost? Paradise Lost

timothy on Feb 2nd, 2010, Version XV

When I first played Paradise Lost in 2007, there were only 3 maps, but they shared a distinctive look and feel. The pack slowly grew in size and the new maps were equally impressive. However, it feels like there was a definite style change sometime in 2009. The newer maps all feel very similar, boxy, and use the same bland grey and red texturing. There are so many maps now it's hard to even remember what they look like by name, and picking one at random is no longer sure to be a good game. It seems like ever since Power Drive you've been doing something different, and although the newer maps certainly aren't bad, I wish you had spun them off into a separate pack.

Nice Work Kill Them All III: The Complete Masterworks

timothy on Feb 2nd, 2010, Version 1.10

It just doesn't feel the same having the order mixed up, and there are so many maps it's almost impossible to finish in a single sitting. I also miss the terminal levels bookending KTAII.

Otherwise, there are some great new maps in this pack, and the co-op bug fixes are appreciated. A+++ WILL HOST AGAIN.

Nice Work Captures

timothy on Feb 19th, 2009, Version 1.0

Very fun concept. The included map has some issues with the round length. The round lasts a very long time, and the capture points are so close together that there's almost no point in playing until the last 15 seconds or so because anything you capture before that will just get taken by someone else. If the distribution of the points was less uniformly placed and some of them were harder to reach or easier to defend it might make the game more challenging. Another idea might be to disable the radar or point it to the nearest point you haven't captured. Some feedback would also be nice, such as how many points you manged to score when the round ends, and maybe showing a running total of the points you control or what everyone controls as an overlay.

It would also be great if when the game is played with a time limit and the time runs out before the end of the round, you could treat it as the end and award points based on the state of the captures at that time.

Start of something wonderful? POWERS

timothy on Jan 31st, 2009, Version 1.0

Interesting concept. I wish you could use the POWERS to deflect projectiles. For some reason the POWERS doesn't work through a liquid. Co-op seemed interesting, but it could get a little slow. I liked how players could flip switches, trigger doors, etc. I think it would be better if only one or two players got the POWERS while everyone else had traditional weapons. It would also be neat to combine the POWERS with other game types. Maybe tag where the person who is "it" gets the POWERS. The biggest problem I found was the lack of POWERS. The first thing I did was increase the POWERS by several orders of magnitude, but it still wasn't enough. My next thought was to make the POWERS exponential, which seemed to be effective.

Easily would have made the top 10 in the contest Telephone Line

timothy on Jan 28th, 2009, Version 1.0

The central arena and the lower area with the lifts between them make a nice combination. Based on the few games I've played, the upper areas around the arena seem to get ignored somewhat. Something feels off about the weapon and ammo placement but I can't put my finger on it. The textures look very bland and it's difficult to orient yourself quickly.

Overall it's a good map but there are a couple similar ones in Cosmic Clouds that I'd probably play instead.
