Re: Trackball

I believe Thumper also used a trackball. That would not necessarily be a resounding endorsement, but he was at least as good as me with my mouse. Ok, that probably doesn't make it any better. I'll just be quiet now...

Re: Quickshot league

OK.. there are a couple of things that might have to be addressed... Has anyone gotten permission to use the map you seem to love? Or has it been released on some sort of license that allows it's use? I see he said he would put a poster, but I don't see anything about rights to the map in the discus...

If you are not happy, there is a huge selection of servers to choose from.

Yep, I definitely hate the rogue geno. A well placed and difficult to get geno isn't such a big deal to me, but "geno" maps do not help to attract new players.

Re: rabbit mode and masquerade and genocide flags

I seem to remember a server like that in the past, but I believe it was a customized server build. There were a few like that, such as Olympic where you could not get shot by anyone but yourself if you were over 50m so that you could tackle the obstacle course in relative peace.

Re: Radeon X600 & XT 2400 unplayable

The important part is reverting the drivers back to the 'Generic VGA' before installing the ATI ones. While they are both 1.1.1; they probably are not identical and having the windows ones loaded may be preventing additional components from loading.

Re: who is your favorite map creator?

And Norang (Thumper & Donny) created the Overseer plugin that helped auto-ban repeat tker's without actually disabling tking. That plugin helped make their maps, their server, more desirable to play on. The only thing the plugin didn't do was to prevent being tk'd from robbing you of a point. Obvio...

Don't know who adam is or why he would be listening... there is no sound here.

You need to keep flapping... WG has a flap count which is the number of times you can "flap" (jump) before you must touch somewhere (which doesn't have to be the ground).
