    Site Update - October 12, 2010

    The QUAKE LIVE team has just completed a web service update to address a few minor outstanding issues as well as introduce a new feature to Pro users' 'Start-a-Match' functionality.

    Since the initial launch in August we have heard numerous requests to allow Pro users to launch 'standard servers' so that they may easily play with any given number of non-subscribers friends. As of tonight, all Pro users can do just that. To further improve accessibility, all public servers launched via Start-a-Match (unpassworded servers with match visibility set to 'all players') will now appear in the default public match browser. Only servers launched with a password or friend/invite requirements will be filtered to the private match browser. We hope this makes it easier for everyone to get a game underway, and we hope you enjoy the changes.

    Web changes:
    • Start a Match configuration option added – ‘Membership Level’. You may now alter the required membership level, allowing you to launch ‘Standard Servers’ that non-subscribers may join.
    • Start a Match launched public servers will now appear in the default 'public' match browser..
    • Fix: The missing time-remaining timer on the match browser server hovers has been restored.
    • Fix: IE javascript issue resolved.
    • Fix: Improved error handling on account registration page.

    Neat! how about functionality allowing pros to launch previous devpick servers? probably very little desire for this but i would like to play stuff like kami-spawn again once in a while.

    GJ otherwise though.

    (cue someone else complaining about something dumb and unrelated, saying there is no excuse for it)

    Good stuff Good stuff , But i agree with Ranatalus, Would be nice for PRO players to launch devpick servers (Including previous ones), And QUAD-Spawn would be pretty cool :P Or a match where your Haste all the time (:

    Hey ID, try double-checking the file you upload for Mac users. The plugin name says one version (old) but is actually another (new). So Mac users are locked out right now. The workaround doesn't work because it's the new plugin. Can't wait till you start testing your plugin versions on Mac and stop saying "it's in beta", and also start double-checking your workarounds before recommending them. Crazy expectations I realize...
