Yep got the latest firmware.

Not sure what else it could be.

It is accessible on my local network but as I said anyone joining from outside becomes 'Not Responding'.

I am guessing the problem is with my router setup but I don't know what it could be.

Any ideas anyone?

Been Thinking! Ouch!

I have been thinking about the situation and To me the most obvious solutions are the most radical. 1)Move house. Other people in different locations don't seem to have the same problem, their route to the servers are different. 2)Change ISP and hope that their location means that i am not routed th...

Lag on most servers

Hi Guys Long time since I played or visited the forum. Just recently got back into things but virtually every server I go on I end up getting kicked due to excesive lag, even though I have 4x the bandwidth when I used to play with no problems. Done a bit of investigating, running traceroutes to vari...

Off Topic

As interesting as the Windows v Linux arguement is (I dual boot XP and Xandros btw), I think we have gone off topic here. I have tried to do the task using a shortcut, .vbs, .bat and even a vb6 app. I guess I will have to admit defeat although I am sure that there is a way round the 'spaces in names...

Names & Spaces

Ok, so I have just realised that for simplicity I should have chosen a name without a space in the middle, but having been 'Half Track' for about 3 years, I would feel like I had lost my identity if I had to change it now. My probem is setting up a shortcut to the client that takes me straight into ...

Thanks for that. I have droped the height of the top step down by0.001 and everything works fine!! Strange why it was happening though.

Texture problem

I have made some objects for my map consisting of three elongated arcs stacked to make some steps, to this I have added a walkway off the top step. this is made out of another arc. Both of the objects overlap and have their top faces at the same height, but I cannot drive from the walkway object on ...

I tried it

the idea came to me when I tried to make a tunnel through an elongated arc. I made another arc for the tunnel made it shoot through and drive through and then placed it in position within the elongated arc the color was black (so I could check the position) and it was an easy matter to make it invis...

map enhancement idea

I don't know whether to post this here or in the map section, but as it is an enhancement idea I will post here and hope that if the moderator needs to move it they will. Basically my idea is this: If objects had an order of precedence, when making maps you could create a tunnel by making an arc of ...

Thanks Sir Pants, that did the job a treat!! I am not sure of the logic of it all yet but now I have done it I will be able to follow it through to make sense of it.

In the conf.txt file for your game leave out/comment out the ip address line. Also the same for port and public address. On the machine where you want to run the server go to start then run, type in cmd.exe. When the command prompt (dos looking) window comes up type in ipconfig This will give you th...

Hannibal

Thanks for the suggestion, but I have already experimented with shot length to get the best setting for the map.

If there is not a way of setting ricochet length then I will have to leave things as they are.

Thanks anyway

shorten ricochet length?

Hi. My map 'TrackWorld' is a fairly small map so I have taken off the ricochet option as the amount of 'lucky' kills took the fun out of the game. Some people feel that they like ricochet in their game and I am wondering if I can compromise by having ricochet on but applying a short length on it. I ...
