    Its been re started now, i do try and check it at least once a day if i remember. But as always feel free to post here.


    The current server is paid for by CurlySteve, Nimrod, Trebor and Myself as a gift to the community (we have just renewed it for another 12 months so enjoy :))

    The only downside is we are all very busy at the moment with coursework or jobs so none of us really play at the moment.

    If we did expend in the future and offered servers to the public to rent you would get access to start, stop, configure, add maps / mods and so on. Its something we would be interested in doing in the future.

    New mutator

    Hello,

    I proposed several mutators (2k4_vehiclestuff, SantaHat, parachute) without success :'( ;).
    No problem, I'm not discouraged.:D

    Here are : MantarunAssist

    Description:
    This mutator gives manta drivers, who carry their flag carrier, points and adrenaline for carrying him upon flag capture. The points he gets represent the active mantarun time of the flag run. So if the flag carrier only sat half the time of his flag run on a manta, the driver will only get half the points and adrenaline.

    HEHE this post makes me smile. I've known Leecher since the beginning of UT2004 as he was a regular on the Jolt AS servers (we both played AS quite alot) and I can say we were both really skilled at the time :D I didn't see him for some time after until I got into ICTF and TAM when I saw him again. I can tell you that he doesn't aimbot as I can kill him and I wouldn't dare dream of aimbotting on our own server (not that I do on any other, I'm not sad enough to pay for one, the only way I know how people get aimbots these days). As for this whole bad language and behaviour I might have to start going on the server when it's busy (anyone tell me when that is?) and see what happens.

    Hello,

    Here is an example of Leecher language (screenshots).

    It's a pity that I did not screenshots yesterday night when he insulted the players.
    You can ask Panetta, or take a look at the chat logs.

    :( well I'll try to get onto the servers tonight or tomorrow and will ask him nicely to try and keep things civilised. I can't remember if we've actually banned anyone from the server yet and hope we won't have to. I know it's not nice.

    Its up again!

    We really do need to implement a script that will check its running every 5 mins and re start the server if not, if anyone can do that in Linux it could be of great help.

    Hello,

    It is strange that the server crashes. What in the server logs?
    If it's not a problem with the hoster, maybe a mutator problem.
    I put a newer version of UTComp on FTP.

    Server is down ...

    Hello oh mighty admins,

    When you get a chance, can you please get the server online again? Thanks in advance. :)

    As for Leecher, no, he's not aimbotting, it was a poor attempt at humor on my part. I manage to frag him quite often actually. And after trying to tell him to stop spamming the chat with his boasts, whines, and insults, I stopped, because it only encouraged him. Now I and other regulars just ignore his bilious spewings. Although I confess I do LOL when his team loses a match. He explodes like Mt. Vesuvius. It's most entertaining. :D

    For once the server been down wasn't because it had crashed, there was a small outage at the datacenter where the server is hosted, the server was still online just not accessible!

    The map VCTF-AtomicSands2004-LD by Gorge has been added, it should be playable after the server next changes map.

    Hello,

    I like the sens of humor of some maps designers. :D
    For example RedRooms.

    LOL can't say I've never noticed that before. Good find there Gorge. I have to admit Redrooms is perhaps one of my favourite VCTF maps on our server. I usually hax on it (InsaneNutter and Nimrods words not mine) by using the lifts for shortcuts. As for Leecher, when I went on the server the other day he seemed to behave himself. Might be the fact that I knew him, he had no idea I was an admin on the server or part owned it and I was logged in as admin at the time. If you do tire of him just choose to ignore his chat, teamchat etc in the "escape" menu by right clicking his name and choosing the ignoring options. That's what I tend to do with some players.

    Is there a new map pack download, as gorge has altered some, and the old download won't reflect that now

    Hello,

    I agree : RedRooms is one of the best maps.

    One of the major changes that I made on this map doesn't work on the Digiex server :
    the jumps of bots on the pipes and the use (by the bots) of elevators to go on defense on higher spots
    because the skill of the bots is not higher enough. (under 4).

    Those who want to see it :
    -play offline
    -launch RedRooms with bots skill at least 'Adept'
    -enjoy the challenge;)

    Server's down again :(

    Could an admin please reboot it, when he gets a free moment (unless it's the data center's fault, like last time) ? Thanks in advance !

    :D Well done, Mr. Holmes.

    I'd like Redrooms even better if I could ever figure out how to jump between the pipes via the wall, lol. My personal faves are Blood Gulch and Mad Dog. Non-stop action FTW
