MASSA is PB kicking for anisotropy setting.
I guess that is not intended.

Also, a shame that ppl run stupid hacked servers with retarded custom content.

Coroner, there will always be idiots in any game, no matter how good or shitty it is. The real community isnt looking for bugged out releases, we're looking for the real deal you will be releasing. Just keep up the great work and dont let fools bother you. To be honest, to actually see that someone took the time to hack the sv_official setting while the game is still bugged can actually be looked at in a good way. It shows that there are some people that will do anything to get to play your game. Even though they went against your wishes, keep in mind that fools will be fools and the real community will be patient.

However, i do recommend you change up the way the sv_official works so that if you even intend to release your next alpha it wont be hacked. Also allowing even a few of the current official maps in .49b will delay people hacking your alpha versions to run custom junk.

Dont take their stupidity to heart, even though i understand where your rage is coming from =/.

I don't really know whether I should invest time in making sv_official more secure.
Sure I can start taking on that fight, but then I can't work on other things ...

Well I mean I was just on that server and all i saw were custom trash weapons that dont even work correctly. I wouldnt even worry about it. I thought they actually had custom maps and other junk. DoS that server :) one nice way to shut it off. Or i should check if that ws exploit is available there haha. Keep shutting it down everytime they put it up.

If that ever happens, I'm ready to submit the send button. All it takes is one click. Try shutting it down.

I agree with you WingZero.
Btw.. "hacking" a simple cvar is not a crime, especially if it doesn't do any harm (except raises someone's blood pressure). However denial of service attacks are acts of crime.

srly, I have enough troubles with idiots dosing my legit server, where will this go if the "good guys" start doing it too?

edit: there's also the guys who use the getstatus flaw in the engine protocol to ruin the servers bandwith, ...

I have been working with regional agents for a few years regarding things like this and it is not a 'lmao!' matter. Do expect a 'raid' visit from the FBI if this server does go down by ddos.

The custom content discussion is a complicated one.

At one hand custom content is what helped TC:E keep going over the last few years.
On the other, 95% of it tends to be crap.

Imagine a new player starting to play TC:E.
Most likely he'll join a custom content server: no clear distinction between the player skins, cluttered level design with the same washed out look, shader issues, bugs, possibly a language change in the main menu, definitely a modified one with custom server references, etc.
Sure, we're used to it but it may unappealing to the new player.

Then again, the alternative might be playing the same maps over and over again with the same weapons and gamemodes.

I just wished custom servers at least had better quality control.


CQB had a feeling of freshness, playing on an unique and pleasant map again.

Well said, but unfortunately the only way to counter this is more official maps, and more official maps means more level designers. I'm afraid that this is not possible with current one man army approach.

I miss the old q3tc 1.2 times.. lots of great official maps and some terrific 3rd party ones :) Too bad that Acrid lost that hard drive back then..
Also, I really wonder if there is any possibility that CQB would move to a more modern engine. (Please don't send me to hell - but if you insist, then at least do it in style :roll:)

cheers

Firstly and lastly, your idiots if you think i actually would do a dos attack. Obviously you all read past the hints of it being a joke and me laughing in my post. But ok lets all be all grown men "pricks" and have our homes made of glass. K? thanks. Pathetic that people can take such jokes as serious matters especially when they come from me a person who's been around for 5+ years. Thanks for the trust.

I just hope this bs doesnt piss coroner too much. The one map is getting wore out ;), seems like everybody wants to raid the spawn areas.
