Ckit Says Have Adults only boards (you would need VISA as proof of ID)

And Disable use of the ESC key and Alt+F4 to prevent cheatin

1 Who Would Want Adult Only Boards!!!
If Everyone Had An Adult Game And You Were Not An Adult How Would You Play!!!!!!!!!!
2 I Agree About The People Cheating. But What If You Had Somthing In The Background Running And It Was Not Respanding And You Had To Shut It Down You Would Lose The Game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. I want it.
You would play the same way you do with people who don't have those boards, stick with freeware boards for those players.

2. Use Task Manager or Process Explorer to kill the task if need be.

Star Striker\Ice we have had our disagreements in the past, can we please try and move on?

21- Tooltips near the system tray displaying Player10 is trying to join your game similier to Instant Messenging software
22- Allow only one instance of Rival Ball.exe - added 15th July


1: I think RBT using a 16 bit interface.
2: Nice idea but not enough people will be interested in it.
3: We all agree there
4: If you want different background music mute the games music and put a cd on using a Cd playing program.
5: Im afraid it won't happen if you add one of them no one will buy the extra board pack and the game will unfortunatly die.
6: I think it already has this.
7: We all could do with this
8: Can't see why not other games have it.
9: Most forums stick with 100/100 to keep the avitars small and to keep the page loading quickly.
10: just Pm one of the mods I did that once when a spammer i knew joined up to this forum.
11: DirectX 9 is fu*king up my system right now.
12: Great idea not gonna happen.
13: Ever tried teamspeak? or Xfire? i do voicechats on them.
14: i keep hearing about IRC but i am hopeless to understand it.
15: I haven't found an unused game room yet.
16: Printscreen key does the same thing.
17: Never seen the mouse escape the game.
18: unfortunatly i can't see it happening since All of LDA's games are designed to run on as many systems as possible.
19: Er same as above.
20: I can't see why this can't be added.
21: Why not?
22: Even if you have more than 1 RB open you can only play online with one of them

one of my own here
23: A clickable link that allows you to view some more infomation on them such as LDA username and email.

Now i desperatly need to crash out.

1: Yes, but have it more customizable (like more of an options menu)
2: Er... I personally think that idea wouldn't last long.
3: Ditto
4: MP3, WMA, OGG, and WAV only (go open source)
5: Nice idea, but if you look at the game StepMania, the game is thriving even with custom content.
6: I would call that stereo sound, and I think it's supported already... I think.
7: Um... I have an idea: an in program NAT Firewall test... allows you to test ports in the program like Azureus.
8: I recommend FRAPS (http://www.fraps.com)
9: Waste of resources
10: Yay abuse button!
11: I would disagree with you, as that for a game such as RBT, OpenGL seems to do the trick with a lot of ease. Besides, OpenGL is open source... DirectX isn't... and I've benched my computer to realize that OpenGL does a way better job of maintaining better frame rates than DirectX.
12: That won't happen... it's M1cr0$0f7...
13: Hmmm... try running 2 programs at once...
14: IRC... a problem there... channel takeover is easy, thus chaos. Create a pseudo-live chat system using LDA as main relay server. (Java actually is not that good of a programming language and is a bit slow)
15: That's just a gameroom file that logs people's names and stuff. Option to clear that out at every exit or something similar.
16: What NN9 said.
17: I agree w/ ckit
18: That won't happen... architecture of both systems are vastly different (you should try looking at assembly language one day... it's a mess)
19: Is multithreading really needed for a game like RBT?
20: Hmmm... I see a buffer overrun attack risk in that idea...
21: Agree, but replace that text box at bottom right to a more efficient version.
22: 1 instance is good, as that with 2 instances, you could log in with two usernames, and fight yourself constantly, thus cheating with ranks.
23: Make that info appear as a hover bubble when you hover over their name or avatar.

I have some of my own.

24: Have mini avatars next to their names (cute)
25: Build a crashcatcher (aka if RBT crashes, you don't get window's stupid crash log, instead RBT's own crash logger and system) (Reference idea to StepMania) (It's actually quite efficient)
26: AI-s on the game room! When there's noone online, might as well play against a CPU; Either local or LDA server ai... (interesting idea)
27: A more comprehensive options menu allowing more control.
28: A skinnable game (you can make themes for RBT... (Idea from StepMania)
29: Option to have a direct connection with opponent via advanced options menu... (viable... you could have the two players set up their own connections)
30: Open source the game? That would allow the community to make plugins, and customized versions in order to enhance the gameplay (Great idea, but I know it will take a toll on LDA as that they would then be patching and upgrading like crazy to keep up)

So who wants a bowl of Mixed Tropical Fruit? ^_^

5: Did you ever play Blast thru? that had a sequel with aload of new boards but no one bought it due to the board editer in the origanal.

16: does that mean you agree with me? oh good god leg it.

24: don't they already have this in RBT?
