Does Royal Assassin even hold conversations beyond his typical binds lol?

I've rarely seen the guy hold a conversation, mostly just binds... hehe

Will be updating News about the changes shortly along side a News article for Amon26's 'In the Kingdom' game :)

I was wondering if the hook is going to be set up the way it currently is on the server, or if it will be shmack style.

Hi Pie
If you go to port 26000 I have enabled hook voting so that people can practice on the server. If you type vote-hook in console, that is the hook you will normally get and I must be honest I hadn't noticed a difference :D . Is that not the hook you were after?

Kind regards

I know that you can use vote-hook to enable it, however that wasn't my concern. The hook seems to work slightly differently from shmack. When you fire you weapon, the hook lets go. So say for example I am hanging on a wall, and I shoot a rocket, I would drop. I don't know if its supposed to be like that or not, and I was just wondering if it would be that way for the tourny.

Thanks :D

Good work Burnsy. Really seems like you have put a lot into this. Thank you.

Royal eh? So great.

I wish he would post here so I could troll him so badly! LOLOL

Cheers all!

Also, re: Hook... yeah Burns there is something different with the code on this server as opposed to Slot's server. The hook releases when you hit fire. I know it's a small thing but it will greatly affect my ability to play like I normally do too! (maybe that's good for some, but not for DEE!)

Hey everyone,
Looks like this is going to be fun times, glad everyone's checking out the server to work the bugs out. Burnsy, great job setting this all up, if there's anything one of us can do to help out let us know!
Cheers and happy hunting!
Thanks again EzJack

Re - Tourney: Happy to help, and bear in mind Polarite and Peg have also contributed to this so I cant take all the credit. Hopefully it will be some sporting, good natured fun on the night :wink:

Re - Hook: I didn't build the server but as far as I am aware it's just the standard RQ mod from Slot. I seem to recall that there are 2 different hooks in RQ, namely a free hook and a lithium hook, which are controlled by the temp1 cvar, so it's not beyond the realms of possibility that the wrong hook has been selected by mistake although from my brief testing following a chat with EZJack the other night the hook seemed the same to me. I'll check the hook when I get in later tonight but the aim is to make it feel like the one on Shmack.

If there is anything else you guys (and girls) spot please let me know :)

Kind regards

Post subject:  Re: RuneQuake Tournament?

Thanks a lot for looking into this Burns! :D There aren't any other gameplay problems for say, but me EzJack and Royal were testing out the server a while ago, and I think it crashed and restarted. Royal had shambler rune, and it went in telaporter and I got disconnected. I connected again, and runes and hook were gone, and voting were disabled. I hope we can work through these minor bugs and all have a fun RQ tourny! :D

Post subject:  Re: RuneQuake Tournament?

Hmmm... yeah the hook settings are not the same. Because hook voting is disabled it's hard to say how. But if you are grappling a wall, and then engage your +attack the hook lets go.

Might I suggest we go with the "gold" standard from Slot's server:
-rotating armor
-spawn shields enabled
-hook acting normally :)
-runes enabled (duh)
-hook damage on or Royal will lose for sure
-mega health enabled
-shoot buttons enabled

Any other thoughts?

Post subject:  Re: RuneQuake Tournament?

Sounds good to me. Odd that you should mention that hook voting is disabled. If I am not mistaken, I was enabled when Jack Royal and I were there a little while ago. After the server crash or whatever it was, all voting (accept map voting) was disabled. Runes and hook has since returned but I didn't check to see if voting for them was.

-Happy quaking

G'day Burnsy,

The issue with the hook is an easy one to fix if you haven't already done so. What folks are describing is the anti-camp code which makes the hook release when a weapon is fired.

To change it to the way Slot has it, open "settings.qc" and find this line:
float HOOK_CAMP_PROT      = 1;

Change it to:
float HOOK_CAMP_PROT      = 0;

Recompile and you're all set.

You sir are a gentleman! :)
I spent a fair part of last night ripping what's left of my hair out on FFANY trying to get the settings aligned, reading through Slots Config guide, and thinking what hell is causing the hook to release whenever I fire another weapon. I must be honest, I came to the same conclusion that there must be a difference in the compiled code base so I'll have a word with Pol, as he will probably have the original, and see if we can get an updated version ready for the Tournament.

Thank you once again PK, what would I/we do without you :o)

Kind regards

P.S. We're getting a pretty full server for the tourney but I'll add you to signup sheet on here and on the basis that there are still some spare slots and people often don't turn up anyway

Glad I was able to help.

Sometimes the most frustrating issues are the easiest to fix. Sometimes. :)

Let me know if you need anything else. Still have a QuakeC compiler nearby somewhere.

I'd sign up for this tournament, but much too hardcore l33t for you n00bs. :wink:

(Truth is, my skill level is so bad the only way I could advance in the tournament is if the lowest frag score wins ...)

Post subject:  Re: RuneQuake Tournament?

Heya burns, and everybody. I don't know if this will be of any help, but I noticed that NY tourny server is running outdated RQ version. Don't know if this makes a difference, but thought I'd point that out (as if you didn't know that already :lol: ).

We had a test session on Saturday and fortunately things seem to be working well. Some experienced RuneQuakers, approx 11 of them (!) , happened to jump on the server while were testing and whilst I'm sure it's not perfect, it is reasonably close to the Shmack experience, or at least it will be on the night.

My thanks to everyone for their input, especially Ez / Sara / Dee Killer / PK and the others who kept giving us helpful feedback on Saturday. My thanks also to Polarite for the use of his Quake Proxy which allows multiple spectators to view the action without being part of the game.

A word of caution, a certain "Royal" player appears to be practicing like a man possessed on those maps, so it should be an interesting night :)

Kind regards

Great stuff folks.

Burns, my ping ranges from 40 (Can you imagine?) to 112 on this server. It's usually one or the other and not in between. There is nothing crazy going on at my end. Just thought I would share and see if anyone else notices a huge diff at various times of day.

Post subject:  Re: RuneQuake Tournament?

GODDAMNIT wish I hadn't missed test. Anyway, I look forward to Sat. Also, not that its important or anything, but would it be possible to post a list of participants? Thanks. And as for Royal, even without practice, he's gona be one of the top players I think. Gona be a good competition!

And Dee, as for the lag, I haven't had the spikes of ping, but I think some other people were getting that problem. IDK, cya at tourny!

Happy quaking all!
