Site News and Information / Downloads section now open
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:25:24 PM »
I've opened up the downloads section, so that people can upload their worlds, or mods they've made.. or whatever else. Note, this section is for TM stuff only. So if you've made a Minecraft mod, that's fantastic, but don't upload it here, because it will get deleted.

Using the upload/download is simple. If you've ever uploaded or downloaded anything before, you pretty much know how it works, so I'll save the boring explanation. I have it limited to 32MB right now so that I can better gauge whatever impact it may have on our hosting.

There's 3 categories right now. Mods, worlds, and miscellaneous, for whatever I haven't anticipated needing its own category. It isn't for uploading screenshots or whatever. Stick with imgur for that. Things like custom textures would go there.

And I shouldn't really need to say this, but I will anyways. Don't upload malware of any sort. It will be deleted, you will be banned, and you will never be welcome back. Ever.

That's about 4,000 times more complicated than the current system of "hey bob, can my name be changed to X?"

i wish it has my TMF Forums account profile linked ;-;
It does. It would be pretty useless if you couldn't use the same account. Log in with the same info you use on the normal site.

Do you know where there coming from? They seem to appear every 20 seconds. It's weird considering you didn't put them there.
They come from the app provider. We don't make anything from those, as I don't put ads on anything because I personally don't like ads and I adblock everything, so I wouldn't expect anyone else to like them either. But they're pretty much unavoidable in the phone world.

is it the closest thing to the forums on the phone?

I don't know what you mean. The closest thing to the forums on a phone is a web browser and using the full, fat forums. Tapatalk is a mobile optimized forum software that works with preexisting sites. The old android app is just a webview app with some convenience buttons.

So the ads are fixed?

I don't have any control over the ads on the current app. See the thread I just posted in site news for the tapatalk info.

Site News and Information / Total Miner Forums now on tapatalk
« on: December 09, 2017, 04:53:08 PM »
I've installed tapatalk on the forums. It should be easier for everyone to use than the current app or a standard browser. As a bonus it's available on iOS as well as Android. And even Windows phone, which should be useful for all 6 people that have one of those.

What you'll need to do: obviously you'll want to install tapatalk. Pick your poison with the links below.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quoord.tapatalkpro.activity
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tapatalk-200-000-forums/id307880732?mt=8
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/tapatalk-classic/9wzdncrfhwnl

When you first run it, you'll see a search bar at the top. type in Total Miner, and you'll get something that looks like this.



Hit follow so that you don't have to constantly be searching for the same thing. Then you just click the link to get here, log in and you'll be able to do most everything that you can do on the website version. It'll looks something like this, which is basically the equivalent of hitting the recent posts.



There are some ads here and there, but they seem pretty unobtrusive. I'll have a look at the stats in a month or two and see if there's enough people using it to justify paying for the ad free upgrade.

I've transitioned the forum over to using tapatalk. I think you'll find it's a lot easier to use than the webview app once you get used to it.

I'll have to check into the app. It's supposed to be limited to the single banner. If there's more than that I'll trash it and start fresh

I have exactly 0 ads placed on this site. So they're coming from somewhere else.

It isn't anything against the OS. That's just a ton of extra work for something that will realistically only benefit 5-10% of players. Whereas Craig could spend that time working on the game itself and benefit 100% of the players. Same logic would apply to Linux. I would imagine most anyone interested in PC gaming and running either Linux/Mac is already, or should seriously consider dual booting with Windows, since Linux/Mac gaming is to be blunt, a wasteland.
