Sorry if this is answered elsewhere but i was wondering what sort of time line to expect for patches? Now i know your gonna say it depends on how big the patch changes the game but as a basic time frame are we talking weeks, months, every 3/4 months etc, just curious as U came out a couple of days after i brought the game
It really does depend. Sometimes we'll get a compatible test patch a day for 10 days, other times we'll wait 6 months. The only thing we can be certain on is that we will get a patch, and that when Scawen releases a patch it's never just boring stuff, he always includes something cool
Yes, that is correct. 15 characters including the extension.
The file size is limited because they are stored in memory, in a buffer of limited size. I don't like to make buffers larger than they need to be and it seemed like 15 characters (requiring a small buffer of size 16) would be enough.
I will not change it to 255. The smaller the memory usage in a program, the more chance that any accessed data is in the cache. Of course we don't need this particular buffer access to be very fast but it just spreads out the other program data. I always keep the size small and tidy, don't waste memory and that's one reason why LFS runs fast.
I could increase it to 31 (a 32 byte buffer). Then you would have space for your folder name and file name. Am I correct that you are able to use folder names right now, if the foilder and file name are very small? My point is, if I only increased the text size limit, then that is all you need?
Currently I don't use a file path, so a size of 32 would be coOL!
I only need an increase in the filename length not in the filesize!
So that the filename of the welcome textfile can contain more that 15
so now only 12345678901.txt works,
hopefully in future also 123456789012345678901234567.txt
hope u understand what i mean...
only the filename length is important, not the filesize!
CrazyICE : You said that you wanted to store the files in different folders (a folder for each server, I think). So all I am asking is : does it work already (although the filenames are too short now) with folders?
But now it's taken so long to ask the question, I should have just done the test myself. Sorry I wasn't more clear about what I was asking - I just thought it was a quick question and you might already know the answer.
