Tom / Jim,

When you get a chance, you might wish to consider updating the version number that the Master Client tells people they need. It still says 1.5.9. Or, since you're nearing a new release, just wait until it's out and update the Master Client to reflect that rev.

synack dude, M/C is an unsupported buggy piece of rushed "do the job" code.

when 1.6.1 hits town the chat room and most of the functions will be incorporated in-game menu system - and m/c will most likely cease to be available.

i cant be sure of course and i dont speak for LDA, but reading into previous posts on the subject - this is the expected outcome.

from what I've seen this msg comes from the master server

Rixy - understood.
Rex R - That was my thought as well. Probably a simple thing to change, if they're interested.

possibly as simple as editing the server's config file(dunno how the master is set up). but since you don't generally see the chat msg from the game menu...

ya both have good points, but whats the point in updating software that will be obsolete in a month anyway - as for the server, yeah i agree, that needs addressing.

besides, i used to launch with M/C and i never saw anyone in the chatroom EVER !

If it will indeed become obsolete with 1.6.1, then obviously there's no point in updating the m/c.

Speaking of the m/c, the best modification to that should be adding a "ping" button so that pings only when you press it. Thats a large reason why I don't use the m/c is the constant pinging (and the fact it crashes after about an hour of use each time...)

I live off of MC - it would be nice if it or a future version/spawn of it would list "who" is on the servers.

Nice idea Paranor. Like the sound of that one.
