Author Topic:   For Pete's sake, download 85 BEFORE the DDM! It's OPTIONAL, but it's only 159 KB.

I don't know who Pete is exactly, but do it for him. The intention of 85 is to be SSO. But the game may not be playable with all the synching going on. Since they insisted on having the master flag pack installed on the server, there will be 578 files that will synch for those that have a stock TM install.

The tiny little download for the weapons is HERE.

The explanations for the weapons and pictures of them are HERE and HERE.

The version I have of the master flag pack is 1.58 MB and can be found HERE.

If you're a stubborn dial-up user and just want the ent files for the flag pack so they won't have to synch, that 59 KB download is HERE.

THIS is Harmless's cool layout of pictures of all the flags.

As is usually the case, just unzip the files into your Tread Marks 1.5 directory and you're set. Delete the addons folder if you these and all other mods out.

I worked for Pete for over a year.

He's a $&*(#$( &$(*)(#*&$ $#) & ()&*#$(*# $()(#*$& ()*#$&(*# $

So ... I will be doing NOTHING for Pete's sake.

If Felix is watching, chime in Dude. He'll support every expletive, and then some.

I would have said to do it for my sake. But I had the feeling that I would have gotten the same response as you gave Pete.

No, Pete's my hot button.

Pick a different name and I'm all good with it.

Unless ... unless it's NIAGRA FALLS .... SLOWLY I TURNED ... STEP BY STEP ... INCH BY INCH ...

Ahh, nice to have the server pack so we save on that Synching. Thanks for posting that Irascible. I do believe September "fun" DDM will be the anarchy pack. I'm letting you all know WAY in Advance (2nd Sunday in September- the 14th) Harmless had the download HERE which is the Anarchy pack AND the patch 1 combined. You will see some of the same weapons as 85 weapons and power ups, but different meshes for them.
October Fun DDM will be the Hallsted i am pack.
November will be Storm (I think) and December will be all ice maps A personal favorite.

You know...

Is all this ranked competition really what people want? I mean come on. Other than one particular bird of a different feather, who's ever posted, "Oh man, I can't wait for the next ranked DDM!". Looking at the attendance of the last ranked DDM doesn't help the ranked cause much either.

Ah but now take a look here in this thread, anticipation of the fun stuff! We're already talking about January's fun DDM and we haven't even covered half the different fun things that could be done. Call me crazy, but TWO fun DDMs a month might just be what the doctor ordered. And I'm NOT talking about 85. I have a feeling this may be a disaster today. Anyway, IF keeping the game alive by attracting players to things they want is the goal, well... something to think about.

ohhh, ok... i'm a wee bit slow sometimes...

is that true (what sue says)...
with the 85 weapons server, when i join in,
i have to wait while some 435 entities are synched, which can take quite a while.
but if i had the SSO 85weapons server
pack installed in my addons folder, then there is no wait time to join the game since there is no synching to do?

i need to take more ginko biloba.

Thanks for showing guys. With back to school and Labor Day coming tomorrow, I didn't have high hopes. I can't tell you what was up with the lag or the freakin' AIs. There's no way my old server on a lowly 256 Kb cable modem should have been able to perform better than LDA. Oh well.

For the next fun DDM we should get rid of the AI's. I have ran into this problem before that the AI's don't exist properly when they should, even with the dedicated.cfg file is set for the AI's to be replace when a player enters the game.

Will do that next time.

Again...thanks for you all coming...it was fun.
