Skirwan, that's exactly what I've done already - proxy, etc. Read my post :D
Color me impressed. Very cool stuff.

Re: v1042 discussion

'Skirwan back-engineered the protocol and built a hacky client' thing Was it you or Maz that built the integrated, single-window CL I remember what you're talking about, and that wasn't mine (and I'm not Maz). Was it Maz who did the never-released spiffy client with the lighting effects? Those scre...

Re: v1042 discussion

HTML5 may be cool For what it's worth -- I'm reasonably confident you could do a CL web app. The pile of code that became the permanently-beta HTML5 Stylunk started as 'Skirwan trying to figure out the rendering side of a web CL client'. And I only started messing with that because I'd just built a...

Re: Healer Pets???!!!

If my healer can get a pet Dwarf, that would probably be funny enough to make me start playing again.

Areas are done or at least started too. This is a really good idea.

Re: Clan Lord Kickstarter

You're raising a big pile of money, and presumably giving it to people in exchange for things. How much money, which people, and what things?

A lack of funds and a lack of interest is a far smaller problem than a lack of leadership and a lack of vision. IMHO.

Re: increase the viewport dimensions

So in your opinion, what is the hope for CL on future "retina" display computers? Pixel doubling is ugly, but easy. If I were thinking of ways to upgrade (rather than replace) CL, I think I'd probably stick with pixel-doubling -- retro is 'in', why not play to your strengths? But I'd only keep the ...

Re: increase the viewport dimensions

If Apple keeps their form factor to exclude dual bays (or even a single actual HD bay), I will not be buying one. Somewhere there's a Kickstart for folks making microSD-into-SD adapters that fit in MBA and MBP SD slots and sit flush with the case. I've been using SD cards for temporary storage with...

Re: Announcing Clanning

So, let me get this straight, are you saying you cannot run a javascript on your site using an external data feed? I iz confused. Javascript in a web page hosted at 'whatever.com' can't load URLs from from 'somethingelse.com' without some kind of a workaround. It's called the the 'same origin polic...

Re: Announcing Clanning

Question: since the feed is open to anyone, would an iPhone/mobile webpage that refreshed automatically using the feed be possible? Go for it: http://deltatao.com/clanlord/status/cldata.xml . I looked at turning iClan into a web-only app at one point (before deciding to give Stylunk the treatment, ...

Re: Announcing Clanning

Lookin' good, Kinon. Props and respect and whatnot, I'm glad someone took over the niche. Aside, re Noivad's comment about scaling madness: that was about scaling the game view. You generally need to composite the whole frame at 1x size before scaling up or down -- which can be frustrating in OpenGL...

Re: CL iPad app.

I remember you mentioned one of the BIG headaches was running macros in a iOS app, and thought perhaps macros could be uploaded to a deltatao server and downloaded upon login. Changes could be made to macros with any editor and uploaded. It would be neat if it could just pull them from a person’s d...
