Fusion power

Post by Xfing » Wed Apr 28, 2010 5:28 pm

A little suggestion for the next versions. Could the Fusion power slider be reduced to just two options: Descent 1 and Descent 2 power?

I know that this would take some maneuverablility away, but it would make it easier to keep things fair. I mean, how am I supposed to know if the standard Descent 2 power value is at 100%, or maybe 150%? Same with the original Descent power, which is higher. Not to mention that anyone can set the slider to 400% just like that, thus making the game easy as a walk in the park. Revamping this to just two values (D1 and D2) would make things clearer and fairer IMO.

Bug Reports & Feature Request for D2X-XL

Diedel is no long a member of this site and can not help here.

Since he's the only coder for this project. You'll need to join his forum and follow his rules. ;)

Thanks.

I think feature requests are handled through the SourceForge tracker. Would pay to check through a search (on that tracker) that it hasn't already been suggested and turned down though.

Thanks for the advice. I don't think I'll pursue the matter though.

Which leads me to believe that Re-Birth is the better of both open source knockoffs.
It's never good to wake up in the shrubs naked, you either got way too drunk, or your azz is a werewolf.

I love BOTH project, but this thread isn't about which is better, now is it? ;)

Please don't derail this thread.

Thank you.

EDIT: Split Thread.
