Idea for eco glitch countermeasure

Post by CoHellbound »

Take out Cancel, but allow tributes and "ok"
This forces the player to give his ally a resource, which should make it fairly obvious they're glitching, and usually just screws their whole world up.

I'm just speaking though, I've never touched the games internals THAT deep before.

Can anyone tell me that program that unpacks the data.ssa files?

Well, at least you realized it wouldn't work because right click exists :)

Sorry, I feel like a moron :P. girlfriend was bitchin at me while I thought it up.
And I guess a 5 second delay before the tribute screen pops up is out of the question?

Yeah, sadly any kind of delay isn't going to happen :( I've tried a lot of really crazy workaround ideas too, like moving the tribute screen so that it's accessed via the in-Game Options menu (which actually does fix glitching... except, the moment you access the screen the game crashes... lol)

Keep the ideas coming though!

getting rid of cancel button doesn't stop glitching, hb, it simply takes up more of their time. all he has to do instead of pressing cancel is take back all the resources he initially put in.

"Impossible?"

Impossible is nothing...

You just have to break through Omega, break on through to the other side.
