Just a suggestion, and one that I'd greatly appreciate...

I finally am seeing more than one or two (or no!) servers up for version 1.5, but the folks that are setting these up... well... either they don't play much on them, or they have ADD.
Teams in DM are a good thing, and CTF is at least as good... but please, if you're going to play team scores in either setup - TURN THE MAX NUMBER OF KILLS UP. Sheesh. When there's 5-6 on each team and the max kills is 20, you maybe capture the flag twice, three at most, and the game's over. And with that many players in DM you might get to wrack up 4-6 kills before the game stops. Whee. What fun.

Just my opinion, but I doubt I'm the only one that dislikes 5 minute CTF games!

In other news... personally, I adore this game and have been trying desperately to convince friends to take it up, and will probably set up my own server in the near future, with lots of bandwidth, right in the middle of the US.

Thanks LDA,

Skandranon

Settings for frag counts are controlled by the server admins. I suggest you look at the contact information for each server (through their web page or whatever) and tell them what you want changed. Most of these guys are good at that

I'm increasing the frag count to 40 in the dedicated.cfg that comes with the patch.

Oh, I know who's responsible Thanks for the reply LDATom, and I'm glad to hear the default's being raised a bit.

I was just hoping most of those folks read the forum once in a while... and for future notice to other server operators.

I'd also advise them to get rid of a few maps that are okay for racing, but not for DM - some of the ice maps come to mind... there's one that has some SERIOUS clipping and camera issues, though its name eludes me. It's an ice world with a network of tunnels through it. Camera gets lost in the terrain constantly, as do tanks.

In short - check those dedicated.cfg files more thoroughly!
