Admin/ Server idea: Posting Download links/ server info in game
0
i was wondering if it would be possible to post some server messages in DoS server games


Such as;

Welcome to DoS
Play Straight Away!- Download maps @ Daemons oF Shadow.
Fair Players = Fun/ More players
get maps @ {insert DoS map link here}
Watch DoS frag movies On Youtube channel (CBS- i am willing to make a youtube account called DoSFragmovies or Daemons Of Shadow etc)


i suggest this because earlier i attempted to join VCTF-Irradiated v2a and the download was intolerably slow so i left
lol no wonder people only play the small spam maps
its ok for me coz i know where to look but some people need a little push sometimes and having the map first really makes a difference

Dont forget for new people who buy UT3 they have to go through many downloads/ updates and patches before they even find a version they like

for DoS-- i would hope these messages and others would promote DoS/ UT3 and give more players/ new players info on where to get maps, watch cool movies adn maybe clan matches etc

for myself- hopefully more people will be aware of DoS video's i make and obv my maps

many thanks
(i will personally try to do this promotion in game until i here a verdict, if that is ok with the admin)

I personally dislike these adertisements (thats also the reason why i use Adblock to surfing "on" the internetz Smile). The download is slow atm cuz the redirect server is not linked or the maps arent on the redirect server yet. Paradox forgot to do that, as he said that this night.

Every map is downloaded via UT3 itself. But you have a limit of 300MB. And this is working on the LiFo methode. When the space is full, the last map you downloaded (the oldest one) gets deleted. I think it's okay how it is.

So many nice maps, but we play Shoebox etc. -.-.

Adding advertisements is possible, I could set it to appear for instance only every 5th minute or once in 10 minutes.

The reason why the downloads are so incredibly slow at the moment is, that my main server is currently down and under maintenance. I shut the server down for really small maintenance purposes but a corrupted driver prevents the server from starting up again. The support team is currently attempting to repair it, I might need to re-insall the entire server in order to fix this issue though.

Thats why im always leaving servers like that in cod bo, but if you are gonna do it, better stay with informations about server website address and link to maps download, without messages like: dos - best most playable super extra unbelivable ut3 server ever, 24/7 blablablabla

I concur with the obnoxious person above me on the advertisements. Keep it clean.

I dont like server adverts, players prefer servers without or really few.
If ever, there should be only 1 sentence every.. dunno, 10 minutes. Something like:

"If you like the server, donate & vote about it! http://www.DoS.com"

(Edit: lol, a porn site. And they say OUR clan name's pervert! Tongue)

but server admins, check your community first before planning such details.

1st - a warning
2nd warning = kick
