Idea dump

Pisto wants as many ideas as possible for RW so i'm going to start up a list here, everyone feel free to add to it Run! 03:10, 13 July 2008 (MST)

  • Crates stop falling after N turns
  • Crate rate for crate shower decays (5 seconds, then 6, etc)
  • Weapon power settings randomly vary throughout the game
  • Worms resurrect after N turns dead (so enemy teams have to be killed off within N turns before they start coming back)
  • Gravity flips mid-map
  • Ability to edit the expiry time for the supersheep so that it can traverse longer distances
  • An option for a health penalty on collection of weapon crates (e.g. 10 points deducted when you collect a weapon)
  • Points for weapons mode. Each player has 100 points and they have to select their weapons. Each weapon is worth a certain amount of points.
  • More starting health. Perhaps by adding a value to each worm when the game begins, since 255 is probably a maximum.
  • Delimiting the amount of fire that can be present on a map (some fire disappears if more fire is created elsewhere) the flames thing is done through a trainer (a progam like wa-hacks if you know it)
  • When "Shot doesn't end turn" option is set, some weapons changes after shooting it, for example when you are shooting a holy, it changes to zooka after the first shot. It would be nice to be able to keep the same weapon you've chosen on the first place.
  • Editing the number of weapons you can get from a crate. For example you could get infinite holy granades from one.
  • Have a lobby command like /v that shows who has which version of RW.

Error in the article

Loss of control doesn't end turn

When activated, control of the active worm will not be lost in any circumstances (fall from a great height, weapon explosion, etc) except death.
Controlled by the second bit of the crate probability of Mole Squadron (add 1 to enable).

Shot doesn't end turn

Firing a weapon doesn't end the player's turn. There's no retreat time and you can't control any weapon (such as Sheep or Supersheep) when turn time runs out.
Controlled by the first bit of the crate probability of Mole Squadron (add 2 to enable).

There's a contradiction above, please fix it. I haven't used this program so I don't know how to fix. Explorer09 14:36, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

About section " compatibility"

I noticed that if you have the version and also this file wkRubberWorm.dll and after download the new rubberworm version: wkRubberWorm31.dll and just run wormkit to play with both of these files in WA folder, the game will crash when you try to play a match. So i deleted wkRubberWorm.dll and changed the name of wkRubberWorm31.dll to "wkRubberWorm.dll" again. Then, i ran wormkit and it worked perfectly. I think the explanation about the instalation of this new Rubber version is very poor. May i put this detail about the instalation in the article? I'm almost sure that i'm correct. I just don't know yet if version v0.7.3.2 must be installed before adding the new dll or not. Also, the link of the "read more here" is not working. FoxHound 09:49, 29 December 2010 (CET)

I see no problems in the text. The download links clearly state for which version of W:A they are. You do not need to rename the module. I don't see where you got the impression that the newer version requires that you have the older version. The "read more" link works for me. --Vladimir 10:36, 29 December 2010 (CET)

I tought the older was required because you need to install the .exe file, and the newer version is just a .dll file. Maybe the link of "read more" is not working only for me, strange. Well, if i was wrong there is no reason for changing the section. At least in my case, i solved the problem. FoxHound 11:07, 29 December 2010 (CET)

For me, I would add the notice that the old version must be uninstalled before applying the new version. Newbies don't know anything about "version conflicts" and will do what FoxHound did.
(By "uninstall" I mean to delete only the dll file.) --Explorer09 11:57, 29 December 2010 (CET)

Change version numbering (please?)

I'm not sure whether it's appropriate to post such request here. If not, please help me forward the request.

A new, Kawoosh's version of RubberWorm has released, with new features. But my intuition tells me that the new custom version should have a version number that is distinct from the original, Pisto's version.

I mean the version numbering should be something like this:

RubberWorm version Supported WA version Developer
0.7 Pisto
0.7.29 Pisto
0.7.32 Pisto
1.0 test build Pisto
0.7.32-kw1.5 Kawoosh

instead of Kawoosh

The latter will be confusing after it reaches 0.3 - It'll be hard to tell whether it's Pisto's build or Kawoosh's build.

(Also if this numbering seems too difficult, may I suggest to rename the module entirely? "wkKawooshRubber" or something like that.) --Explorer09 14:45, 1 January 2011 (CET)
