Re: Zero footprint

pretty neat. monitor arms have been life changing for me, btw, recommend them to anyone with ergonomic issues, or better, to prevent them.

Likewise, as I have dealt with injury in my left wrist, I have not been able to play on offense for the same duration as before,...

Re: Mod Requests

Thank you, Tona.

Hairy: I love Bulge CQ and CTF and would be enthusiastic about any mods of these phenomenal maps. Visiting that area in Belgium was also quite moving.

Re: DC Urban Siege possible changes

I confirmed that the map is biased toward the blue team. The median margin of victory over all rounds with at least 14 people is one flag. The result is statistically significant. I’m not really sure how to make it more balanced. I would certainly welcome ideas. 1.have all spawn points begin as cont...

Hi toolman. would be terrific to see you back on the server. installing has never been easier. i like HairyRussianDude's method here: http://ea117dcfanfavorites.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=6302 if you use win10, you'll also need to enable DirectPlay http://ea117dcfanfavorites.com/viewtopic.php?f=62...

DC Urban Siege possible changes

Hi all, I'm humbled by your response to the brand new DC Urban Siege CTF mod. Thank you for your open-mindedness. So far, the numbers reflect its success. The first night we ran it, got to 21 ppl. Last Friday night, we started gaming at 11:20PM ET, when the server usually quiets down for the night. ...

Re: Jolly Mods

Bang -- thx: Spawn in wall is fixed.

Otto -- thx: exploding barriers are fixed.

All: ignore the grey flag icon when approaching the enemy flag. I'll figure out how to get rid of it some time. Until then, just ignore.
