Big news

BREAKING NEWS! :D

This is kinda a newsletter :P

FS moving to 4.2

So, apparently FS decided to move everything with a loooooooooong notice (2 weeks?? ffs ¬¬ this is a little bit ridiculous) to 4.2 killing their Master server list for 4.1. Most people still play 4.1, but they don't care about the players anymore.

http://www.urbanterror.info/news/437-end-of-the-4-1-era/


I wonder how much time our 4.1 servers will have population after this time.

I guess the regulars have already the server in their favorites, so they can still play. But this won't happen with other players with the default configuration. So, no new players.

Particularly I am interested in suggestions for the Algiers/Germany servers. The Dressing Room probably will have the same fate as the LA server moving quickly to 4.2


About the 4.2 server at Los Angeles rank

Quick news. Yesterday I updated this server to 4.2.016. Apparently this reduced the population to almost zero, since for some reason (the server list filters the master list for your version???), a big majority of 4.2.015 players were still playing with us and this scaled the ranking of the server to the sky xD
Now, we are in the normal trend.

FFA server will dissappear and a TS 4.2 will start

And talking about the ranks. The FFA server is empty almost all the time. With the first point of this list, I decided to stop running it.

In exchange, I will be running a TS instance with 4.2 at Kansas. It seems that is the most popular game mode in UrT.

The IP:Port will be this   173.208.150.125:27960

So, default port, same IP than Dressing Room. Once I finish configuring this stuff in some minutes, I will be updating the server list thread http://forum.tlws.org/announcements-anuncios/current-servers-at-tlws/

Also please make suggestions about the settings for this server. I have no idea what ones are cool to enjoy it.

My only suggestion for the moment is .. do not use team balance on the ts server per post #38 on FS  here  -

Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

How about a sticky topic with the 4.1 server addresses so we can find them easily if we need to?

Hmmm, that or I should put a link somewhere else (is already in the FAQ and is sicky in this section).

Done. That is a new feature in 4.2? No idea what it does. Kinda the b3 poweradmin balance feature?

As far as I can tell it does exactly that.  And it made b3 unresponsive to admin commands. Yet b3 was still running, lol, showing top players, autobalancing, etc.

The server had to be restarted to correct the problem.

Oh there it is... I thought I'd seen it somewhere before but I was looking in "general".
