Can't seem to find it?Need to reinstall it.

I guess this would also be usefull to newbies.TM Master Client is a seperate program that connects to the master server and shows you how many humans are playing,what servers they are on,server info like where to download maps or mods,and a few other usefull features.You can check all of this without having to fire up TM.

Unfortunatly its unstable under XP. I had it lock up on me several times while I was in game, forcing me to have to turn the machine off (thank God for ATX PSUs).

So if you use it under XP, be careful.

The best idea is to close it right after you pick a server and TM's splash screen comes up for a few seconds.

Yeah...I don't launch it from the master client.I just see how many are playing and close master client,then boot up TM the normal way.

"it will lock up under all windows if you leave it running for too long"

- hehe, kong, its locks up on any OS if you leave it running too long more bugs than planet P "starship troopers"

However, i find it resonably stable on XP Pro 2600.

If you find an influx of a lot of new people, I would tell them about the Master Client thingy. One of the things I didn't like about TM was not knowing where to go play. Doesn't show me who is where, but at least there is a place to start.

just remember that the master client was released "just because" and with known bugs. it was never intended to be a perfect and stable program. one of those "here, i made this and you can use it if you want to" sort of things from LDA. just thought the newbies should know .

XP pro, no problems here.
I don't use it to load up into TM tho...I go in the manual way. It would be cool if they could get it to work, no? With a drag-down menu for your tank? Cool.

Yeah Mex...tht does sound good nd I would imsgine it would be simple to make.Maybe a player/programmer could take the challenge?

Jeepie,you don't have to have the master program to see how many people are on and where.If you start up a game normally and go to the master server it will show how many bots are supposed to be on the server and how many actually are.Meaning when a human comes a bot is removed.So if the server is supposed to have 6 bots but it says there is only 2,then there are 4 humans on that server.
