Website Redelivery

Sunday, October 31, 2010

I've added a redelivery option to the Procyon Games website. If you are a Procyon game owner, you can get a new copy of the game redelivered to you any time from the website. You don't even have to be logged in to Second Life.

All the previous methods of redelivery are still there. You can get a new copy of the game by touching any vendor in-world, or by using the remote control that came with your game ("/8 deliver game"). The website function is just another convenience.

To access it, go to the main Customer page. In your License section you should see Redeliver links for each game license you own. If you don't see the links, hover your mouse over the game you want to redeliver.

Display Names and You

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Linden Lab is rolling out its Display Names feature, which, if you haven't heard by now, allows anyone to change the name that appears in their tag and chat.

The scoreboards I use for my games display players' names as textures, and it's too expensive to change them to match people's Display Names. Plus, it would make tracking high scores difficult. So here is how it's going to work.

The scoreboards will track your Full Name, not your Display Name. For existing players ("oldbies"), your Full Name is the same Avatar name you're used to. For new accounts, their Full Name is their account name, plus "Resident." However, the scoreboards won't show the "Resident" surname, so they will effectively show the Account Name.

So, if you are an existing player, nothing will change. Your name as it is displayed on scoreboards will not change.

If you are a new resident, then the scoreboards will show your Account name.

For all avatars, if you change your Display Name, it will have no effect on the name that is displayed on the scoreboards. That might be a little confusing, if your name shows as one thing in chat and another on the score display. So a little heads-up for everyone.

Game owners can now view a list of recent (past 2 weeks) games played on the games they have rezzed in-world. Click on the "Local Games" link in the Customer section of the web site.

Take it Easy Head-to-Head v2.14

Monday, October 18, 2010

I've posted an update to the Take it Easy Head-to-Head edition.

  • Tile textures are pre-loaded, so you won't have to wait for textures to rez in the middle of a game.
  • The selection ring which marked the current tile is gone. Instead, the current tile will blink and pulse.
  • The game is mod-ok
To upgrade, visit my store and touch the Take it Easy vendor. It will give you a new copy of the game.

The Team Captain names are now listed in the team rankings for En Garde and Can't Stop.

Remember, if you are a team Captain and you don't want your name listed, you can set yourself anonymous in the customer Account Settings page.
