That's just from the last match. ;)

Maybe the stats don't count the bots as kills? I'll have to investigate :D

BTW, did you encounter any crashes or did it work this time?

No it worked great, I played 3 matches, the first two I quit becauce I wanted to change my ship, the last one I player all the way through, got 9 bot kills, no crash.

I don't really like that announcer voice though, a little to unreal tournamenty.

What would be interesting would be to add a Torn Stars sort of server, with all of the ships, multiple systems, and the ability to mine for resources to buy weapons to gain the upper hand on the other team. That would need more than two players on at a time, though.

Sure, that would be an MMORPG in space. But it's not possible.

The server can only run one map file at a time, so players could only stay together in one star system, because the server has to load the new map and remove the old one.

The German announcer is more calm, I like it :)

Now I'm sure - bot kills don't count as kills in the log file. A little bad, but we can still count the "real" kills players make.

This seems to affect the other stats, too:

FLUX: [unknown] ** Stats for player "MP_NAME_schmatzler"
FLUX: [unknown] kills 0
FLUX: [unknown] shots 120
FLUX: [unknown] missiles 17
FLUX: [unknown] shots on target 0
FLUX: [unknown] missiles on target 1


I'm pretty sure I killed 3 bots with missiles only, but my shots on target are still 0. A little unreliable. Maybe I can adjust the log level, so I can get more information out of the thing.

Edit: No way, it doesn't log the kills directly. Shame.
But I adjusted the bot skill from 0.6 to 0.4 and now I can stay alive a little bit longer.

Besides, as it is you can only have 16 players on at a time. The thing to aim for right now would be creating a server for the "What Rocks v2" mod.

I'm trying to get one running in the next few hours.
