Hi,

Dinochrome is running on a temporary system; TMLogScan has been installed so those not wishing to be tracked should be aware.

I have modified it somewhat in an effort to get it to function like the defunct installation but it has differences that are palpable to those who use it regularly.

I have added a turkey weapon and you will get the rare 50 round bomb pack.

Extra's required to play; Conan (fixed Barbarian), RoundUp, Cup and Saucer, PitBull and Kansazz.

Currently the green turd and other unpublished tanks work. If they stop working, don't say I didn't warn you. (Hint, if it acts like a pillbox or a top, you are welcome!).

Also, I am once again taking requests for new map rotations.

Could you increase the reload speed for 120mm shells and connan for that matter? :twisted:
TY!

Increase? :shock:

I think it's the stock reload time of 4 seconds...you want it to be longer? :(

I think the Conan tank has a faster reload than the stock tank... ;)

Well,

No, Conan shoots faster and kicks harder but the turret turns slow and it is easy to miss when 80% of your targets are below the tread skirts or lower when discussing the popular unfinished tanks. Besides, you run out of ammo quick enough and need to find a weapon anyway.

Although, I may stick the green turd ent back in and give it a 60 second reload time.

...increase the speed of reload... it sounded in my head like: can you make it reload faster?... cannons still have the same reload time as "normal" while all other weapons reload faster... it feels uneven when you run out of a weapon's ammo.. talking about ammo how about more shells in spawn boxes, please? :lol:

Pab,

I may not have control over the unpublished tanks in the community but I can mess them up on my own server.

uhm... all I would like is faster "recoil" of the cannon (for tanks) to shoot shells and more shells in the boxes... you do in your server what pleases you with the unpublished tanks... I don't use them... and don't care who does :P

Hmm, this could be a good sticky

Open the addonname.zip with WinZip
Press Ctrl-A (select all)
Select Extract button
Locate the toplevel directory of your TreadMarks installation (mine is usually in c:\program files\Treadmarks1.5)
Check the use folder names option
Check the overwrite existing files option

If you followed the directions above, you should now have the addon installed correctly.

sigh... the original post was nicer... :(

uhm... Vor: did you get it when I said that normal tanks... any tank... takes longer to reload shells and therefore shot a pea?.... Talking in general... you may have no chance against a plasma ball loaded tank that shoots every .5 seconds with a "no-ammo" tank that shoots shells every 3 sec.
That's the only thing I truly would like to see changed in your server :) (and more shells in the boxes <spawn points>) jeez... for all this time I played this game, you would think I knew the names of its identities :roll:
