There was a point where i can add custom sprites but it would be a wierd format.

they would HAVE to be .gif files.
on the server you would have to provide one facing left, and one facing right. eg.

http://images.myserver.net/images/character

that would be facing right. notice no .gif?

because ill add the .gif if your facing right, and ill add an r.gif when facing left.

which means you have to provide character.gif and characterr.gif

thats the best way i could do it off the top of my head.

Well people wanted custom sprites, if i had a basic male one and a basic female one, and the colors were randomized. i suppose that would work...

Why can't people learn stuff instead of asking people for something so simple?

In fact, i'm ranting about how people can't do things themselves, I mean. Layouts, you don't need them, so if you want one, make it yourself. Don't go around saying, "OMFG I AM TEH STUPID ND CANT DU HTML COZ I R DUMB". Take the extra 20 minutes out of your "Ask someone for help" convention and get some actual knowledge on the subject. HTML is not the hardest thing in the world. If you think it is, give Quantum Physics a go....

Xeo said to post it here. So if you close it, your stupid...

Rant 1: Layouts
Why can't people learn stuff instead of asking people for something so simple?

In fact, i'm ranting about how people can't do things themselves, I mean. Layouts, you don't need them, so if you want one, make it yourself. Don't go around saying, "OMFG I AM TEH STUPID ND CANT DU HTML COZ I R DUMB". Take the extra 20 minutes out of your "Ask someone for help" convention and get some actual knowledge on the subject. HTML is not the hardest thing in the world. If you think it is, give Quantum Physics a go....

Another thing about layouts is that they are very, very, very, (I could go on like this for a while but, I don't want to give my keyboard strain) VERY poorly designed, here are my 5 simple rules for layout making.
-Don't put in quotes or songs. It's just more stuff i'm never going to read.
-No scrollbars. I don't want to see a scroll bar because a quote is too long when the post is 5 characters.
-Make it look half decent. Bad tables is just an eyesore, another reason why I wont read your posts.
-Text. No large text, no small text, no color changing text, no size changing text, 12pt Verdana with white text on a black background is perfect.
-No heavy pictures. Do NOT, I repeat do NOT, put excessive amounts of GIFs in or put in a background thats a BMP and takes 40+ years to download.

If your layout breaks one of these rules, do not make a layout, throw it out, delete the code until it fits these rules. If your layout breaks one of these rules, I will simple not read your posts.

Rant 2: Crime Shows
Why are there 50+ crime shows?

Sure these were great the first maybe 20 episodes, but they got really old, really fast. I donít know what Hollywood is thinking because crime shows arenít any good. Let me sum up a crime show for youÖ
-Murder.
-Team gets notified.
-Team wonders for about half an hour.
-Team gets DNA.
-Murderer caught.
Wow, huge amounts of variety there. I think the best thing they made up was identical twins. Same DNA, they pick one and itís over, and would you look at that they picked the right one. How did they know that? Itís called acting.
Another useless thing about crime shows is that they have so many variations. CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY. Not to mentionÖ Law & Order, L&O: Criminal Intent, L&O: SVU and the latest, L&O: Trial by Jury. When will it ever end!? I have enough stuff to ignore, stop handing me more. We need more shows like Scrubs and Arrested Development, no sitcoms, just comedy without the added laughs.

Rant 3: Indentation
Coding should be clean, not just jumbles of letters.

When one is coding, you might use a certain song to code to, just to get you into a rhythm. But some rhythms can be bad, like no indentation! Sure if youíre the only person reading the code, then go ahead donít indent the crap out of it. But if youíre working on a project with friends or co-workers, use indentation! I donít care if you can read it. Make sure other people can read it. None of this one line for a table, tables should be separated and look neat. That way people other than you can read it.
Another reason is how it looks more professional indented. If you want to make a professional project, why not use professional ways of coding. Be gone with the ways of the one line amateurs. Step up to the challenges of indenting, become a man (or woman) in good decent coding structures!

Geez, take a chill pill.

I know some layouts suck, and some people annoy you, thats when you dont reply back, and go into edit profile and turn layouts off if it makes you this mad
Why should i turn off everyones layout because most are sucky, I still want to see mine.

Look, you can't yell at people for their layouts being "sucky". That's a personal prefrence. Work was put into making those layouts (thiers or anothers or for however much) and they like them, or else they woudn't use them. Life doesn't always go your way, and people will continue having their layouts. A forum is an area where conversations are written and ideas are exchanged. Thinking your "idea" of layouts is the only right one does away with the whole concept of the forum.

It's just layouts. It's no big deal.

(P.S. I tried to learn HTML. It's hard and frankly, I have better things to do. Why can't I just ask a friend to help me?)
im just viewing my opinion on the subject, i never siad you had to agree..

Ponterios, maybe I'm just going senile or something here, but I do believe that you can block individual layouts in this version. That way, if one is actually bothering you that bad, you can turn their's off and still be able to see your own.
Why would i have to block 150+ layouts for the 5 that applies to my rules.

I am starting the new battle hack, woopee that should be fun, as of now, i am waiting for some sprites of True Flight. And an 1A2 SQL because its annoying to set them up on a local server. Also, spend all the Lucre you want now. As off soon, the Arena and market will be out of service. Until a reasonable version is released. Dont worry it will be worth it.

The sprites will be animated to show attacking or sometihng, unless we dont want that... it may take longer because we will have to color each individual frame. I thought of having one male, one female and one N/A sprite with 3 different color schemes, and the colors will be randomized. So if you want to color each individual sprite then by all means go ahead.

See you dont have to have a layout, its optional. I tihnk people should be able to make thier own, get something like frontpage or dreamweaver. you dont ahve to be good with HTML and you can make one according to my rules.

Elara you could put a black background where your text is and it can follow one of my rules.

Then you might as well delete the FAQ, seeing as none of you enforce the rules in it.

You cant use that excuse, Dekkar Nocturnal found a way that it can be done in FireFox. I use firefox as well so I have seen it being used.

And Spyware, If rules are meant to be bent then why exactly are they there. You arnt supposed to break the rules. Lets say ill go and commit murder. i confess, and the police officer goes Oh ok the rules are meant to be broken sometime. It just doesnt happen rules are there to be enforced not to be broken.

And if you absofuckinglutely HAVE to have an entire song in your fucking signature, TURN THE FUCKING FONT SIZE DOWN, DAMN IT! In fact, that should be done with most text signatures longer than one line. For those who don't know, it's font size=# (or is it ="#"?), inside those angle bracket thingies. Default is 3, custom titles are 1, my sig is 2.

Also, if someone offers to make a layout, what's wrong with asking him or her to do so? My layout got its start that way, so long ago... and it hasn't changed much since. Just a new background and a few color changes.

Edits: Just being a grammar nazi.
Its the fact that random people come up to you because you have a decent looking layout, i had 3 people i had no idea who they were, come up to me and ask me to make them a huge layout with CSS and everything. I want too pleased. Asking friends is fine for a little pointers but a whole layout from someone you dont know? Im not gonna do that.
