FAQ / SVN Update error.
« on: June 23, 2009, 11:09:12 am »
I currently cannot seem to do a successful SVN update.   I am using Tortoise SVN on under windows Vista.

I get the following in my TSVN Screen:
Command   Update
Error          REPORT of '/svnroot/ufoai/!svn/vcc/default': Could not read response body:
Error          Secure connection truncated (

1144 kbytes transferred in 3  minutes 44 Seconds
The operation failed.
The amount of data transffered on an attempted update seems to change as the trunk goes through revisions.  but remains constant as long as no changes are made.   If other things get changed i usually seem to get them just fine.

I can do an update on individual directories and it seems that my troubles reside in:

any ideas? or a work around?  I have the files from the HTTP repository but can't figure out how to get TSVN to recognize them correctly.

Design / Civilian AI Scripting
« on: June 17, 2009, 11:27:27 am »
In another post I posed a selection of AI behaviours for Civilians.

I put together an initial flowchart draft of this for a civilian behavior.

I figure most people can follow a flowchart even if they can't follow code.

I already have in mind about a half-dozen ways to simplify this,  keep in mind this is just a first draft.

relies on determining which of 4 behaviors to perform.

Herd: stick close to other humans,  or alternately under dire threat phalanx soldiers
Hysteria:  run around aimlessly
Hide:  get low and stay out of sight, from phalanx and aliens depending on threats
Hero: On the off-hand chance we decide to arm the humans,  under dire threat they just might make a token attempt to fight back.  don't think they will do much since i can't see us giving them more then tiny pistols or knives to carry.  and if we never arm them it'll straight to hysteria.

Sounds and Music / Sound and Music standard. Alex?
« on: May 02, 2007, 05:56:22 pm »
Alex, I am told that there is no defacto standard for sound and music files beyond defining the filestypes:

.wavs have many flavors on sample and mixrate.  can we define a standard so that submissions have greater consistancy?  You are a  big contibutor and I'm all set to start working on some serious sound contibutions of my own. (sound effect wise...)

What are your thoughts?
