  1. If you came to forums and read more often - you would realise that these episodes are for custom nights only - they do not happen very often - it's a game plan to break the boredom of playing the same routine - it's the first time that Maestro Madness is being put into practice : you should expect glitches and problems to occur during the pilot episode and any problems that arise can be dealt with as they arise. Don't be so dismissive of an idea until it has been put into practice - a lot of people enjoyed the witch fest yesterday, tank fest not so successful today - but there we have - idea - test - evaluate. No good demanding a refund when it's only been the first time of this scenario.
  2. Thanks guys - glad you enjoyed yourself No doubt that this one was a bit of a success and as we do it again any of those minor problems that appeared should be resolved. 10 same classes of infected - that would probably need some tweaking with the plugin - we'll have to wait for a response from Jackie or Crasx about that one. As for me - that random swap was the main problem - so here's my solution : 1 we could pause the game and mess around for 10mins putting everyone back on their team. 2 If random swap happens - just deal with it, but if you're so desperate to get back, I do my best to get you back. The other slight minor irk - people go afk - if you lose your spot when others join - just be patient - it can take a couple of mins - maybe Jackie could increase the 3min auto-kick to 5mins - I'll ask him. If you crash and rejoin and are on wrong team DO ADMINS A FAVOUR - LET US KNOW and if there are open slots just change yourself - that way you won't confuse us if you're stacking or not. If you still can't get in after that - just ask me - and I'll be willing to give up my spot - but you better not complain that you're on the wrong team though lol. As an experiment for tonight - I was thinking we could try Tank Night for 1 round see how that goes - but we would need to play it on a campaign that has no early possible tanks at start - I suggest Carnival for this.
  3. Cheers Jackie - I'm planning to go shopping on Monday - I'll keep an eye out - cheers.
  4. OK - I would suggest not having both those options on together first - Maestro Madness Witch Night at around midnight GMT - that's in approximately 2hrs and 16mins from now
  5. That sounds good to me.
  6. Getting a bit off track here but here goes - some of you may know that I've got my mother with me - she's on high-risk and not been out of the house since 23rd March - and as her carer, I go shopping, pharmacy, walk the dog and basically that's it - we're not allowed visitors until the end of June, it's the main reason I can't play as much - some of you no doubt will be happy to hear that as you don't like my singing. Also, those people who do swap at the beginning of round after scramble happens should be awarded with an incentive - maybe 3pts to buy laser?
  7. I require a lot of USB ports on my desktop - all 8 are being used. However, there is one at the front that seems to be dying - sometimes it does recognise what's plugged in, but more recently it has begun to completely fail. Is there a simple solution to bring it back from it's from what it seems it's last breath? Thanks
  8. This happens too frequent - we know it's not fair for the regular guys (we know who they are - and we thank them) for always offering to switch to balance - I know some of them want to because they see it as a challenge - but if they do and take over a dead bot - they should be respawned - using the holdit before the game starts, then looking at teams and ask for volunteers is need be to swap; and, we should always balance out the new guys as more often than not one team usually ends up with them all.
  9. In order to inject some light relief and hopefully revitalise this game - I've been thinking (as custom maps can't be played) - about an alternative to have more fun. The problem is deciding how many points each team should get - here's the scenario : Tank Night: Infected receive 50pts (to buy tanks) Survivors get (30pts each) Witch Night : Infected 40 pts; Survivors 20. Number 1 Rule : if you buy a tank - you will be killed - don't do it. No Bot Left Behind - we know that bots are stupid sometimes, but if you have to leave them, you will be asked why - bots that are stuck will be teleported to the group - but sometimes in order to do that ASAP and not delay - the entire team may have to be - however, we can't teleport people inside building as they usually get stuck in ceilings, floors etc so they will be moved outside as close to the team as possible. These are only ideas and the points are open for debate: If we try this as a 'pilot' trial, I'm sure you guys can think of ways how to improve on this. By all means - if you think of a suggestion - let us know. And finally if Jackie is reading this - could we get tanks on respawn for 40pts? That's if people like that idea?
  10. Lookinng after a disabled mother who is high risk - this is the 5th month she can't go out, so I spent 4 days doing the garden for her, hence not been able to kill zombies much. Anyhow, here it is for you all to see.
  11. Do we really have to go back to basic RULES (101)? I have gone out of my way to help many of you get your membership sorted and this is how you repay not just me or the person you offend with racist, homophobic, intolerant language and attitude; it goes against everything this server tries to upheld - we are a tolerant community and if you can't be, then you're out of here. NO APOLOGIES WILL BE ACCEPTABLE (or 'I didn't mean it like that' 'I was only joking') Those are sorry excuses if you are perma-banned for racism, homophobia etc.
  12. Welcome back Joda. Unfortunately like many people, I am now out of work due to the corona situation - I will have virtually no money coming in for the next 3 months (lockdown) - this is going to be a severe strain as I have my disabled mother living with me - my bare bones living requirements (food and bills etc) is at an all-time low (approx $50 per week). If the situation gets any better after this period and if I can help, I will try.
  13. If you haven't already sorted the sound out try this : Verify the game cache then open the console in-game and type the following: snd_rebuildaudiocache and snd_updateaudiocache then exit Let it finish. It will take a while. If it freezes, that's OK, just wait and let it do it's job - hope it works.
  14. As of today in England, because of the selfishness of so many, from tonight, for the next 3 weeks, everyone has been told to stay at home - complete LOCKDOWN

      Same here... this is just insane. Stay healthy.

  15. There has been a lot of discussion about this and we haven't made this decision lightly. First of all, your attitude stinks - as soon as you join and you're on a losing team it's constant whining. As a previous admin, you know how stressful it can be at times, but you flagrantly push the wrong buttons all the time. You seem to be joining the Elias and soda regime and quite frankly with the server now becoming popular again we want this a suitable environment for all and not go back to the old ways of creating so much drama. The perma-ban will remain for 6 months to give you a cooling-off period, come back then we will review the situation. However, be warned, if you intend to use an alt a/c during this period, it will remain permanent.
  16. !st time in a long time - server full of members - here's the proof (goat in spec and another crashed) but they did come back - at this rate we'll be having both servers full soon no doubt.
  17. If you have paid or someone else has paid for you and your membership is still not working - please post here with your GC name and Steam ID (that's the one that looks like this STEAM_0:012345678).
  18. Under careful discussion and consideration, it's been decided that mods will no longer be available to use on server 2 as of now.
  19. Don't I count lol - 51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,60 - I could go on if you wish?
  20. I'm a very keen photographer and video geek - problem is - I prefer taking night shots, but don't have a tripod atm and I've forgotten most of the techniques required to compensate in adjusting camera settings - any tips would be great - cheers.
  21. Is there a maximum number? I'll start - 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19 - you can probably guess where this is going - 20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30 - if I win - can I nominate someone for membership? - 31,32,33,34,36,37,38,39,40 - it's 5.30am, can't keep this up much longer - 41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50 - is it anyone of those numbers?
  22. You got distracted by decision making - whether to fill your wine glass up or drink from the bottle instead so you don't have to wash up. I suppose admins aren't allowed; even if we were, people would start screaming fix if one of us won. Holidays make me crazy - so commercialised spawning Christmas adverts on TV in July, buying crap that no one wants or needs - might as well take your shopping and dump it straight away into a landfill. Then there's all that cooking to do - I got 14 people coming to eat me out of house and home again and get tinkleed - lucky I got a special recipe for the turkey stuffing. A hug and someone to talk to - that's all I want for my present from my dog.
  23. Hi all - just a heads up about the upcoming sales we're having. If you are going to start screaming at admins to 'do this and do that' with new people and expect us to kick them immediately - then you're mistaken - they have to be warned first, kicked, then banned if they repeat. Admins have enough to deal with as you are quite well aware - but if you start arguing with admins over decisions in game about such matters - expect a kick or ban yourself if you don't stop. Please welcome all new players - but if they DO NOT listen at all, treat them like a bot and you're welcome to leave them and they will be dealt with accordingly. People say this game is dying - no it's not - it's still here and so so is this server - it's still the best regardless - because we know that perma-banned players still try to get in. But why do they want to continually come back? It's because they know it's the best server ever for L4D2 - and they know it - so please don't join the 'Troll gang' and don't argue with admin decisions about warning, kicking or banning; otherwise you will find yourself in the same predicament. Thank You
  24. Hey Revenant - thanks for coming to the server - it's a pleasure when people do this - I will unban you right now - there you go. Please don't rush - you seem like a new guy who likes this server - if you get stuck or have any questions in game - there are quite a few spanish speakers here - just ask. Hope to see you back soon. If you like the server so much - to become a member - you get a few perks - $15 per year. cheaper than a coffee at starbucks hope to see you soon
