Contests / Xbox Cash Giveaway
« on: February 23, 2017, 09:12:10 PM »
This time we're giving away a code for $15 in Xbox credit.

I'm sure everyone knows how this works. Enter the code into your account and voila, you have $15 in Microsoft space bucks.

Keep in mind, Xbox cash codes are region locked. So you'll either need to be in the US to redeem it, or be all sneaky-like and create a US account to use it.

No need to pick a number, just post something that says you want to enter.

The winner will be chosen on 3/2/2017



-Only accounts made before 2/23/2016 with 25+ posts are eligible.

-Don't spam the topic with non-entry posts.


That's about it.

The prize for this giveaway was donated by Jesse, so make sure to thank him for his generosity

Site News and Information / New video embedding options
« on: January 07, 2017, 12:51:31 PM »
I've added new tags for embedding Twitch and Hitbox livestreams into posts in preparation for TM PC.

Before anyone starts reading too much into things, this is not a hint that the PC version will be released very soon. It's nothing more than being ready ahead of time.

To include a livestream within a post


[twitch]channel name goes here[/twitch]
or
[hitbox]channel name goes here[/hitbox]

I've also include xboxdvr and xboxclips embedding just because it might come in handy for somebody I guess.

[xboxdvr]url[/xboxdvr]
or
[xboxclips]url[/xboxclips]

Site News and Information / Personal emotes
« on: January 05, 2017, 07:47:06 PM »
Since I've been asked about this roughly 7,584,923 times.. I'll now be accepting personalized emotes for members.

The details:

Make your own or find it on the internet. This isn't an invitation to send me a 4k image and ask me to make it into an emote. The answer to that is no.

Between 16x16 and 24x24 in size.

Animations are ok, but keep it conservative. If you send me one with 6,000 frames of animation and a 1mb file size, I'm going to reject it. Again, this is not an invitation to ask me for a tutorial on how to make an animated gif. Google is your friend.

Files should be either in .png or .gif format

1 emote per person. If you already have an emote that you designed that's been added to the forums previously, you're still eligible for your personal emote.

Post your finished product here, along with the /whatever you want it named. 1 word, no spaces, no punctuation in your tag. Letters and numbers only.

This is for legendary members and above. Or weirdos like Trub who keep wanting their post count reset every time they get to legendary. If you haven't gotten to legendary yet and really, really want one..well I guess you should post more, and then come back.

Total Miner Discussion / [Other] Ch-ch-changes
« on: December 31, 2016, 02:00:35 PM »
The game mode sub-boards have been merged into this section. There's now a prefix added for the modes, along with a tag for [Game] for general game discussion, [PC] which is obviously for PC specific things, [360] for 360 specific stuff, and [Other] for the things that are somewhat related to the game, but not actual game discussion..and stuff that just doesn't have a good fit with one of the other tags.

I've tagged the topics that were 1st page of the former sub-sections and a bunch of the TM general topics, but not all of them. If your post is lacking a tag, edit the OP of your topic and then select the proper tag from the dropdown.

Prefixes are also now available in the TV, Music, Etc section. Again the 1st page is already tagged. See above.

And yes, I realize this is in the wrong section. I did it on purpose so that it's more easily noticeable to the relevant section and will move it to Site News when appropriate.

Watch the videos, pick your favorite, vote. Simple.

A few notes about the voting:

-Don't use this topic to campaign for your video. Discussion is fine.
-Don't spam the shoutbox with "vote for me! [link]" Nobody likes that. It's annoying.
-If you have less than 100 posts, don't bother voting as it won't count in the totals.

That's about it. So here's the entries

Contests / Featured Video Contest #3
« on: September 10, 2016, 10:02:21 AM »
Featured video contest time again. You can submit entries starting right now. No more entries will be accepted after 10/10. So you have 1 month to get your best submission ready. After that time I'll lock this thread and put up a voting topic.

Here's how it works:

You make a TM video. Sorry, I'm not interested in your Call of Duty clip collection. If you want to use a video from something like twitch, that's fine also. But upload it to youtube before you send it to me. The twitch player is laggy, not as well supported across browsers, and generally horrible.

You PM it to me. DO NOT POST IT IN THIS THREAD. If you post it in this thread I am going to disqualify you for not reading. And put that it's a video contest entry in the subject please.


Send me only ONE video. So pick wisely. Sorry but I don't have the free time to sit around watching 18 hours of youtube videos.

The community voting will begin after this thread is locked and will run for 1 week.

Video with the highest amount of votes gets 5 points. Second place gets 4 points. Third place gets 3 points. Fourth gets 2 points. Fifth gets 1 point. Anything after that gets none.

Then there's the bob vote. Point values are the same as the ones listed above. I'll rank them in order of what I like best.

Highest total points wins.

In the event of a tie, the video with the highest amount of votes from the moderation/testing teams will get 1 extra point and become the ultimate winner for the month.


Contest begins right now. You have until 10/10 to send me your video.

Prizes: Forum Artist award if you haven't already earned it. The video will be featured on the Total Miner homepage, and your video is posted on the TM facebook.


Also, before you think about trying to game the system. It's not going to work, and you're wasting you're time. So don't bother, cause it will most likely end up with you being disqualified.

Total Miner Discussion / Total Miner 2.5 Peer Review Discussion
« on: August 26, 2016, 07:37:46 AM »
The Total Miner 2.5 update has been submitted to peer review. You can keep up with the progress here

Current progress:  6/6

2.5 has passed peer review.

However I can't just let the system automatically upload the update to the marketplace like in the past, because it doesn't work anymore, and it will delete the game from your console instead. The update must be uploaded to the marketplace manually by MS engineers, and in order to do that with minimal downtime I need to establish a commitment from MS when they can do it. Which will hopefully be Monday or Tuesday.

Corner ramps (auto).
Posts can be positioned in corners.
Ramps2, Stairs2, Halfblocks2, Stacks2, Post2, MT2 (for more textures).

Chat log filters not showing sent msgs.
Decimal point spam on number entry windows.
Script particle command not finding custom templates.

What is Peer Review?

XBox Indie Games must undergo peer review before they are released to the service. These are performed by other developers on the Indie Games service, who review the game for unacceptable content, game instability, and other factors that would be detrimental for wide release on the service, though these reviewers do not attempt to qualify the quality of the game itself. Reviewers also provided suggested content ratings for the games, similar to the submission phase. Games require multiple trusted reviews before they are released. Rejected games can be resubmitted using feedback provided by the reviewers.

A game must have 6 passes from reviewers before the update will go live. Should a game fail peer review, it will be a 1 week waiting period before it can be resubmitted.

How long does Peer Review take?

There is no definitive answer to that. It will be a minimum of 48 hours, but could possibly take several weeks. 1 week from submission would be a decent rough estimate.
Due to there being so few active reviewers left, do not be surprised if PR takes longer than normal

How do I download the update?

Once peer review has passed, the marketplace must first be updated by Microsoft before you will be able to download the new version. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to 24 hours. Once the marketplace for your region has been updated, all you need to do is simply start the game as normal, and you should be prompted to download the new version.

Contests / Earth 2150 Giveaway
« on: August 21, 2016, 01:11:01 PM »
This time we're giving away the Earth 2150 Trilogy. This includes Earth 2150, Earth 2150: Lost Souls and Earth 2150: The Moon Project



As well as World War III: Black Gold.

Note: I looked for videos of this and came to the conclusion that every single video of it on youtube sucks and nobody would ever want to watch them. So if you do youtube, make some videos of this game and get easy views.



No need to pick a number, just post something that says you want to enter. Unless you really like picking numbers, then go ahead and do that.

The winner will be chosen on 8/26/2016



-Only accounts made before 8/20/2016 with 25+ posts are eligible.

-Don't spam the topic with non-entry posts.


These are PC games, so you will need a Steam account to redeem the prize.

That's about it.

The prize for this giveaway was donated by Jaz, so make sure to thank him for his generosity

This time we're giving away a code for $25 in Xbox credit.

I'm sure everyone knows how this works. Enter code into your account and voila, you have $25 in Microsoft space bucks.

Keep in mind, Xbox cash codes are region locked. So you'll either need to be in the US to redeem it, or be all sneaky-like and create a US account to use it. They might work on a Canadian account, I'm not 100% sure if they're locked to US or NA, and the info I've found is outdated.

No need to pick a number, just post something that says you want to enter.

The winners will be chosen on 8/05/2016



-Only accounts made before 7/28/2016 with 25+ posts are eligible.

Contests / Steam Wallet Giveaway
« on: July 22, 2016, 07:06:47 PM »
Giveaway time once again.

This time we're giving away $20(US) Steam Wallet codes. We have 2 codes, so 2 winners will be picked.

Just as an FYI for anyone who doesn't know what this is, it's the Steam equivalent of a gift card. Enter the code in your account, and it adds $20 in credit to your account. Then buy whatever you want from their store with it.

The code can be used region free, it will convert to your local currency, so no worries for those not in the states. You can enter too. And before asking me how much that is in your local currency, here's a handy link to help. http://google.com

No need to pick a number, as we'll have 2 winners I'll be using a different randomizer method to determine the winners. Just leave a post here saying you want to enter. Or pick a number if you really want to but I'm not going to be using it.

The winners will be chosen on 7/29/2016



-Only accounts made before 7/21/2016 with 25+ posts are eligible.

-Don't spam the topic with non-entry posts.
