    there will be a few farcry nights next week :)


    some server settings we are testing:
    2 max per team
    1 class per team
    ammo reduced for grenade launchers, rockets, sniper
    10 sec respawns
    3 sec spawn invulerability
    friendly fire ON with friendly fire penalties
    sprint time increased by 50%

    -full details soon-

    when the main settings have been fully tested and decided on we will look at possible increases in some damage stats and possibly increasing the flag capture time (default is 10 sec)

    you wouldnt believe the dramas i am having trying to get farcry to run, actualy, if you use windows you probably would believe.
    first i couldnt download the files you posted, then the mouse wouldnt work, then my vid drivers wouldnt update properly, now the game hangs during startup, then i lost the 180mb 1.4 update file.:bigcry:
    ill probably come home tomorrow to find someone has stolen my computer.

    at least i am getting my full download speed tonight, though it took me 4 atempts to get the full file last time:bigangry:.
    i keep promising myself to do a format and reinstall, it keeps getting pushed to tomarrow:oops:

    Just found this thread. Interested in the farcry thing but all this mention of COD has me confuddled. Just wondering as its 2v2 is there space on the server for spectators who can talk smak and generally watch before they take the place of the losing side?

    server setup is 95% done


    further changes include
    -flag capture time now is 15s
    -grunts start with 2 frag grenades, not 5, max carried is 2, dead body pickup is 1
    -engineer health packs cannot be picked up from anywhere
    -grunt and engie weapon binds are now the same

    some changes required me to make a server-side mod
    (client do not need the file to play)



    more maps to test!

    Ubisoft has elected to cease dealing with EvenBalance for their Punkbuster software.
    This is why we have had issues with it trying to connect to a master server.

    PB is now off on the server.
