  1. ETPro CFG

    I'm not totally sure what you mean by "ultra compressed textures", hit me up on Discord
  2. ETPro CFG

    It doesn't look like you've even changed what I recommended the last time you posted this thread. You'd be much better off building a new CFG with the settings you know you need than going through 500 cvars. I don't even use a config anymore because there are only 5-6 settings that I actually change from default - my resolution, b_fireTeamLatchedClass "1", removing bobs, sensitivity, and a classmenu.
  3. 1on1 competition

    Given the response in this thread, I think it's clear that we'll be able to find 8 players to participate. I will be moving ahead with planning. My only experience with competitions like this is watching March Madness, so I have a few thoughts immediately that I would like to get some feedback on. Just to respond to kajto3, I don't think I like the idea of rewarding skill with admin levels. Admin levels are given as a privilege for being a good community member either on the servers or by donating to help keep =F|A= alive. Rewarding someone with admin levels for being the best 1on1 player just doesn't seem right. Perhaps if someone was willing to donate money for the VIP level I would be more okay with it. I will also think about other potential rewards. 1. Should I make it a single- or double-elimination competition? Assuming 8 players sign up and each round takes a full three days, we're looking at about eight days for single elimination or two weeks for double elimination. 2. What server should I use if we have an American versus a European (or Malaysian :P)? My initial thought is if there's a server conflict, players can come to me and I will flip a coin. Another idea is that each player can choose the server for their own map and if a decider is needed, they'll have to flip a coin. 3. Should I do any sort of seeding? The only fair way I can think of is to use Trackbase rating, but even that might not be an accurate way. Leaving it unseeded isn't ideal either, but at least that just comes down to luck. 4. What should I do if players don't play their match? If both players agree on a time and one doesn't show up, it's obvious who gets the forfeit. If players can't agree on a time, who gets the forfeit? I was thinking of making a time/date for each round that the match must be played if players can't agree. Then if only one player shows up, they'll get the forfeit win. 5. What maps should I add? I was thinking of separating it into two categories: obj maps and frag maps. Maps I considered - Obj: (ctf_multi, osiris_final, ctf_well, ctf_sillyctf, the_station, adlernest(?)); Frag: (valhalla_te, beerrun_arena_twl, 1v1_garage, Badplace4_rc, multi_huntplace, tournamentdm2)
  4. 1on1 competition

    I was thinking of organizing a 1on1 competition, just for fun. If we had at least 8 players, I could throw a bracket and some rules together. Is anyone interested? EDIT: To expand on this, it wouldn't be all played on one day. I was thinking we could give players 3 days to schedule their match and play it, then another 3 days for each round they advance. Interested Players: Mufasaaa Smiley. SonOfDoc Dest!Ny Mordecai CheepHeep
  5. ET Server Suggestion Hardcore map suggestions

    Breakout is very bad for hardcore. We just went from 12v12ish to 4v4 when that map was voted. In the official format, Remove: Breakout Add: erdenberg_t1, sw_battery, karsiah_te2, et_ufo_final, or coast_b1
  6. How fast can you type??

  7. Server Issue lag on hardcore

    Thanks for looking into it. It definitely happens to everyone, but not to everyone at the same time. Usually 2-3 players at once 999 and they all complain immediately after, so I don't think it's just complaints from one person making others complain. It also doesn't appear to happen on the same map or same time. I can recall experiencing it around a month ago, hours earlier in the day, on a different map. I will tag you next time it happens!
  8. The whole server is having intermittent connection interrupted problems. They last for a few seconds, then come again after another 30 seconds or so. WinMTR sent with contact us. I'm not sure if it'll persist, but it's been happening for a map and a half at this point and people are leaving because of it.
  9. Lag on new install

    A lot of people with Intel graphics have to use 1.

  11. =F|A= US ETPRO Server

    Was this server intended to be public? I'm not seeing a way to set a password like we can on the euro scrim server. Would also be cool if you could add a few 1on1 maps: ctf_multi, multi_huntplace, Osiris_final
  12. DOI Day of Infamy - DOI for 6$

    Does anyone have experience running this without a GPU? It looks interesting, and I know I meet the minimum requirements - not sure if the minimum is a very enjoyable experience, though. I have an i7-3770 with Intel HD 4000.
  13. (Mixed) Scrims

    I'm still hoping for a 3on3 initially. I don't care what happens after that with the mix, though.
  14. (Mixed) Scrims

    To be clear, we're both going to gather players to scrim against each other?
  15. (Mixed) Scrims

    Sunday around 19 or 20 CET would be good for me. If either of those times work for you, let me know and I'll see if I can gather a couple more for a 3v3. =F|A= doesn't have an official scrim team, but I would grab some other =F|A= members to play with me.
