Re: valentino.hepcat.org Pillbox CTF has returned

I have been running Overlord over Christmas with some fun matches. Not enough traffic to switch to a rotation yet but i do still have all of the maps and configs etc.

Saw Green Manalishi on, Spud - An Anarchist, tox and a few others still around. Alot of memories.

Re: valentino.hepcat.org Pillbox CTF has returned

Yeah not really concerned about the leagues. I see ducati and others have merged over time. Hepcat is about a shared community. It may be nostalgia but I am opening it up to anyone that has ever played with us and anyone new. We started this journey in the 1990's in the SIlicon Graphics community. O...

Alot has changed in probably over 12 years since I have run a public bzflag server including half the config options! You can find us on ##hepcat on freenode ir...

Just a quick note, dusted off all the old configs and compiled a 2.4.0 server. I have not gotten all of the logging and server process monitoring stuff back in place so PM me if it dies.

that is a possibility, although i may not have all the maps/configs for that right away. the rotation we used back in 2005 was 4 hours per map.

Hepcat Overlord is back

back when bzflag shifted to the 2.x codebase hepcat was a pure pillbox server but priorities forced us to abandon the hosting. when we came back in 2004 and silverfox had taken over hosting we ran a new map, overlord by dutchrai. it soon became just as successful as pillbox and in time we added a ro...

i modeled pillbox after ducati a bit 3 years ago but took off the rico and added a shot to differentiate.
