Wheew Marc, Do You ever sleep lol.

A Big thank You For providing a mod which has been the most stable of any version i have run.

I run a sniper server in tdm so i dont see the hiccups others may experience and therefore my feedback is limited.

I knew i made the right decision to come here when you changed.

Thank You:bravo::wink1:

thank goodness your working on ww2x!

bet the eXtreme+ crew is kicking themselves for ever losing you.

since if i took all that saved time up at once they would like miss me for about 4 months straight ..lol...so a few days here and then is a better sollution

and besides that...in about 2 weeks from now i have my official holliday....i wont be around coding for 2 to 3 weeks.....yikes..

We are all very lucky indeed . . . too bad you don't work for IW . . .

We now have icons over heads but only in DM so far, not in TDM.

06-22-2007, 11:42 PM
Punchy u runnin version c or d? i had it in c but i dont get it in d:bravo:

running great marc:wink1::bravo:

Running "d", all other versions were ok no problems with head icon, the icons are huge makes sneaking around or hiding impossible.

06-23-2007, 12:17 PM
just checked (played) all d versions on dm.....and i cant reproduce this ....all headicons are off.....when i use: set scr_drawfriend "0"

make sure the one in your codserver.cfg is deleted
and the one in your playercontrol.cfg is set to "0"

also if the above doesnt work for you:

what version ? (window/linux)
setup? (single or 2 iwd setup)
gametype (i asume DM)
map (altho that shouldnt matter)
is it a clean setup? (not just edited files yourself...but a fresh downloaded d version)

06-23-2007, 12:20 PM
Added some small "eye candy" .....nothing huge...no script changes whatsoever..changes are all client-side (images directory)

06-23-2007, 01:52 PM

did you test this first on your computer with BOTS?

Also, is everyone else seeing this, or are you just seeing this?

As if you are the only person seeing them,
then please make sure there are no other mods in your
COD2\MAIN Folder, as they may sometimes conflict...

06-23-2007, 03:45 PM
No other mods, everyone sees them, I spotted another drawfriend in my codserver.cfg, have removed that entry just need to test it now with players in.

06-23-2007, 08:35 PM
Works fine now.:wink1:

Unfortunately that isn't possible.
If it would come out of the scriptdata folder then the iprintln and iprintlnbold wouldn't work anymore (as far as i know....please someone prove me wrong tho)

it would require a custom hudelement created for every message.....and as we all know by now....there is a limit to those.

it would require a lot more precaching of the strings.....and as we all know by now....there is a limit to those....and we've reached it.

the reason the clantext logo can be in the scriptdata folder is because it was originally already in a folder.....since it doesn't matter how that folder is named (as long the name is the same in the callout from the varcache.gsc) i moved it to scriptdata...saves 1 folder in your cod directory....looks cleaner.

if those limits above wouldn't exists then i would be happy to convert the whole mod like that......but unfortunately.....they do exist

Even if was to run, which I doubt it, because of certain files that are made from/for v1.3 patch in the actual mod... the server would crash out ever 2 seconds from the gamestate parse error stuff... you really want to consider
upgrading your servers to the v1.3 patch, if you don't, and you remain at v1.0, then you will experience many major crashes, or major issues, especially if you try using this mod with a v1.0 server.

My advice would be to upgrade your servers,
so you can be able to enjoy all the new features of
the patches, believe me when I say "It is worth it."

I'm a little curious of WHY you don't want to upgrade your servers???
