Its pretty much the same visje
But I think the improvement of anti cheat measurements outweigh netcode fixes :-)
I agree that it wise of Devs not saying anything. I remember back in the Q3 days, punkbuster was constantly circumvented by the cheat builders. Punkbuster took remote screenshots and the cheats either send back a black screen or a screen without any cheat evidence. With Q3 being open, and people having the ability to create their own locally hosted servers, cheat developers had enough opportunity to debug and test. The more a hack stayed 'private' (paid for), the least chance Punkbuster could get a hold of a copy and update their algorithms accordingly.
Your competitions about beating records sure are tempting.. :P
Because there are real issues with the netcode that punishes players with about ping 15-35 in some cases.
The sweetspot seems to be around 45 where the game somehow to start forgive you for close misses with hitscan. However below 10 is still probably the best for a number of reasons.
Tony still plays (mostly tdm these days though), and hangs around in #ffa-clan.
Visje, what did you expect. The game inherits the same flaws and characteristics of its predecessors, so it's running its course like they did. Only now, we're in an accelerated environment thanks to the global web - and multiplayer shooter games tend to have much shorter lifespan that the games of yesteryear.Quote:
That sounds like the last days of Q3 OSP FFA :-(
Frankly if you want to go back to QL, better do it quick. It's not like its going to last forever, you know.
Ahh Trebor and his wisdom. Where would we be without you?
the game its in the "usual" status,lot of duel cups,some tdm cup,actually we playing tdm nactioncup and the cups from #tdmpickup channel
got some problems with the voting sistem and the normal/premium map rotation
normal players playing FFA on not premium server,are forced to play maps decided by the map rotation,cant vote for different maps,this is a bad thing imho,ppl should play every map like in past
i hope to see you around in quakelive and in IRC,you know where to find us
unfortunally many of our "PRO" ffa players are inactive,and i miss the nights spent playing ffa with you and all the "TOP TIER" ffa players,this is coz im not playing ffa so much,most of time easy win and ppl accuse me of cheat :D
well,not completely true,this is coz of the tier sistem
i remember when playing with visje,stesamo,ipodjunk,medixza,yakumo,trajan,deput ydawg and lot of other GREAT ffa players,every map got a different winner,finishing a match with 4-5-6 players in 2-3 frag difference,that was a great period of quakelive FFA imho,we met every night for challenge each other and have great fun,without much dramas,servers with 16 maxclients,10-12 playing and the others spectating watching the great show.maxplayers 8 and map voting/rotarion ruined FFA a lot imho.
You can always spawn a standard level server with a size of 16 while enabling map votes, tony. You'll just be limited to the standard map pool; the only difference compared to before would be that the maps are different.
