Auto-following target calls is bad, somehow, I guess

    I think @Zulah was playing around with something similar using a Kinect at one point? May be misremembering some of the details.
    I was using an xbox remote with a small graphics display I had made. Worked pretty smooth for bashing!

    I play using a cheap (sub $100) Windows 10 tablet, and have buttons all over my screen for things like putting up defences, movement, basic attacking, limb targeting, harmonics, etc.

    a general fight like me looks like:

    r, sh, us, ic, il, id, ihe, ih, ic, il, ise, cad, mo, mo, mo, f3, f4, f6, f7. That's of course assuming the combo works right the first time, with various other combinations depending on the class I'm fighting and what is going on.

    I was using a leap motion controller for a while. I got bored though and put it away.

    Clearly you're all using outdated technology. This is how I play achaea.
    Huh. Neat.

    Back in the day, it was rumoured that Tranquility (who was unbeatable) was using voice recognition software so, also back in the day, I decided to try it.  It actually worked surprisingly well despite just using some open source software I downloaded.  Although I never did use it for target calling.  I imagine that could get weird with some of the more unique names.

    He was artied monk back when 1. hardly anybody had artefacts, 2. (almost?) nobody had any kind of automated curing, 3. most people were level 60-80 and therefore had about 3k health.

    I'd compare him to Tanris probably more than Cain.  Might just be me though.

    He did offer his system, or at least a system coded by him, for sale.  I think he charged the cost of a buckawn's amulet for it?  Which back then was a fortune.

    Quite often he'd round up a dozen people and sneak into the sewers of Shallam.  We'd then blackwind and mass-choke out all the noobs on fish street.  Good times they were.

    Wasn't his "system" just a bunch of triggers that, for example, sent "outr bloodroot;eat bloodroot" in response to the paralysis line, though? I never used it (I never had anywhere close to 800 credits or whatever he charged at any one time during that period), but that's what I remember hearing. There was no actual logic involved, but even that was far better than what 99% of the game had.

    Comparing him to Tanris seems hilarious, since none of the top tier fighters from that period (who haven't really been active since) were remotely good by today's standards. Jarik used to solo Hashan, now he'd almost certainly get steamrolled by most of the mid tier combatants they have.

    I don't know about his system but I heard his at least did consider balance which made it stand out from the rest of us noobs that were, yeah, just coding it to fire on affliction line.  It does seem hilarious to me too, but he was unbeatable by everyone.  

    And then there was that guy Andelas who dueled the god and won.  He used a system of highlights and macros, and got damn good at it.  Those L3 battleaxes weren't holding him back either.

    While we're bringing up those old days before the woes of auto target calling, what was the name of that D-something girl that everyone used to call an artefact wh*re, in Shallam?

    Dresden was awesome.... ..also Tranq wasn't unbeatable he just cried a lot when it happened :P These were the days when monks would win just based on like 2 leg breaks... a stun from jpk would mess with everyones system. there was no logic really. Everyone kind of made their own thing for the longest time which was basically just triggers on top of triggers. There were no real affliction classes. Actually sentinals could do something crazy with their tridents where they spin it and hit you every time with it when you hit them so they could like lock you in one combo if you did it wrong.

    IIRC, the thing about Tranquility is that he was obsessed with his combat record and he basically just wouldn't fight people that he thought could beat him.
  • ZulahZulah Member Posts: 610 @ - Epic Achaean
    I jad a copy of his system. It was a mess, unorganized random stuff. Thought I'd never leave zmud, couldnt imagine going back to it now.
