@user Steru: I honestly don't think that there are THAT many bugs. Of course there are bugs but given the complexity of CS2D the game runs pretty fine. The number of bugs which really break the game is tiny. The problems caused by all the cheats and hacks are no bugs.

@user Milriko: About voice chat: The most important reason for not adding voice chat is that my implementation would most likely suck because I have no experience in this. It would be bad and cause lags (it's a very critical topic because of the network traffic and prioritization etc) and it would totally ruin the entire game. Believe me: You don't want to see my voice chat implementation in the game. I said that many times already.

And after reading all your posts I want to try to make you understand my position:

Technical stuff:
CS2D is over 10 years old, the reprogrammed version (max) is about 7 years old. This is a lot of time for a game. It uses BlitzMax as programming language and engine which is a really bad thing because BlitzMax is ugly, old and limited. This means that I don't see much future (from a technical point of view) for CS2D. Its core is simply too outdated. The code of CS2D is still maintainable but it's hell compared to my current coding standards.
Don't get me wrong: It's a good game, it works fine and I think it's fun but technically it's definitely not future-proof.

Community stuff:
The community has two faces:

√ The good one:
It's (in my opinion) incredible that the game still has so many players and so many contributors. It's insane and I'm very grateful for that. You people are awesome and I highly appreciate your support. I'm probably very bad at showing it but it's true.

× The very bad one:
There are so many assholes out there causing serious trouble. Kids crashing servers, using cheats and hacks, even DDoSing my V-Server and simply destroying everything. All that for no proper reason. Because they are bored, because they think it's cool or because they got banned. This is extremely demotivating especially because there is no efficient way to stop this crap. Random kids destroying work of a decade for no reason. Awesome!

Personal stuff:
Most of the time of CS2D's lifecycle I was a student (school and later university). I had so much more time than I have now. This means I have to evaluate very carefully how I want to invest my time. A fact is that I simply can't work as much on CS2D as I did before. Moreover I want to try new things. It's really boring/annoying to work on the same thing all the time. I want to do new stuff. I want to concentrate on Stranded III and Unity. That's why I have even less time for CS2D.

Conclusion?
CS2D is old and there is a shitload of asshole kids doing bad stuff (totally unbearable actually). I don't have much time to work on my games and I would like to concentrate on new stuff. CS2D is a great game nevertheless and I invested an incredible amount of time. Also there is still an awesome community. So I concentrate on Stranded III but at least I try to still update CS2D from time to time because the game itself and the community deserves it.

So please don't expect big updates for CS2D. I won't make them. Even if this means that CS2D dies. That's okay for me because I prefer working on new stuff instead of working on old stuff just to keep it alive.

And what about you? You have as much support as I can give you. CS2D is online and running. Everyone who wants to play it can play it. For free, 24/7. It's awesome. Either do it or don't do it. It's up to you.

Game is not dead yet. Game will be dead when pcs closes and all rest standard players leave. Only what DC can do is advertising.


Make kickstarter, please.

@user Black Wolf: Wtf... this is... random.

@user _-098-: Not possible because the game is written in BlitzMax. It would have to be rewritten completely using another language and engine. Also controlling a game like CS2D on mobile devices is pretty crappy... but this is another topic.

Surely its sad that cs2d is going to die any time, but what do you expect? Tetris was a great game too and everyone played it, but after many years it's also rarely played. Its the natural way it takes. I canfully understand user DC on the point that iit's getting really boring to work on the same thing over aand over again for such a long period. Imagine you guys would be on his position? You wouldnt react different. People always want to improve therefor its completly legitime that he is trying to focus on new things. Dont forget about blitzmax, its damnly outdated and got no usage for current game standards. These small updates DC is doing are the only way to keep giving customising a real chance to keep the game up. Sure most of these modservers suck but some of them are great, like randomround servers. No super special shit intended (excepting the laser rounds). just random spawn with random guns. So its great if people could even improve these sort of scripts (new lua commands etc.) The game isnt just negative, you simply have to open your eyes. As for the competitive side of cs2d, its simple.. you can actually play matches etc without having much trouble. Voice chat and extra stuff wont get you any further.. cs2d were based on cs 1.6 if im not wrong so you didnt have stuff like voicechat etc. For the newer versions of cstrike, those are completely different games in my opinion, not just few graphicadjustments etc.
So basically cs2d is alright and not DC is ruining it, its about some(most of them) crappy servers hosted by kids who love to get lasor and open doors for everyone.

I think it's the lack of servers in particular regions.

A few months ago, this list had servers with full ping bars for pages.

I'm not sure if bringing back the north american servers would also bring back the players, but it should would be fun to play on 32/32 construction and dust servers again.

Actually players doesnt know what is cs2d at first play like other games,
Lua,Maps and other complicated stuffs..

With the 2D graphics users think the game is crap, and uninstall,

Even me at first, i thought the same,
Then when i understood lua, and stuff,
I thought cs2d is even better than Other 3D games,

So Inviting players etc doesnt gives us any hope,

First of all,Cs2d is going down because of DDOS attacks,
I dont understand the point of view of players blaming @user DC: for cs2d's situation.

@user Nixo: Wow, calm down, my reply was clearly a joke.
Also, sorry for mistaking you for the guy that keeps reviving old threads, your avatars are very similar.
