Fixed missing Point B (White) in Double Domination
Added function to filter bots in server browser (requires new engine)
Added function to filter private servers in the browser (requires new engine)

Removes mines in Elimination, CTF Elimination and LMS between rounds
Now shows if it is a IPv4 or IPv6 server in games browser

Some of these things require the new engine. Filter bots will only work for servers using this mod.

The server will broadcast the number of human players currently playing (not including spectators). But it is the GUI that decides if the it is the number of humans or the number of clients that should be showed. I have not really looked into the missionpack GUI but it should be a simple job.

Great. ^^
I like Q3TA more than Q3A itself.

I have one question. How can I play Harvester/Overload/1FCTF?

Well, just to prove that I actually work on some of the bugs.

This solves many of the bugs in the game logic.

Changelog:
Quote
New in Beta 26:
Load flagbase in baseoa in CTF games to stop the null from appearing at the flags.
VMs believes they are baseoa
Fixed LMS not accepting notteam anymore.
follow1 and follow2 no longer causes an infite loop then cycling.
Includes spectators then counting humans
Big fat text in the middle of the screen then a team is dominating in DD

Some missing things:
Cannot see who got the white flag in oneflag in baseoa
Harvester does not work in baseoa
AllRockets gameoption produces 'Weapon out of range' error when playing with bots.

New in Beta 27:
Harvester fixed

Number of skulls is printed in Harvester
Flag status in One Flag Capture is on the screen
oneflag, overload, harvester and dom are now selecteble through the UI

Everything should be ok now (game logic wise) except for the Out of Range bug.

EDIT: The Out of Range bug should have been fixed too. I forgot about it in changelig.

What about these for Harvester:

Code:
#3 | Event description
----------------------
 0 | Skulls are taken
 1 | Skulls are captured
 2 | Skullcarrier got killed

Harvester syntax: Harvester: #1 #2 #3: S1 got S3 S2 skulls! / S1 captured S3 S2 skulls! / The S2 skull carrier has been killed! / S1 fragged S2's skull carrier
#1 and S1 are the client number and nick, when there is no client involved #1 = -1
#2 and S2 are the team number and name
#3 is the event number, corresponding to the above table.
S3 can be the number of skulls

And these for Overload:

Code:
#3 | Event description
----------------------
 0 | Obelisk is under attack
 1 | Obelisk attacker is fragged
 2 | Obelisk destoyed

Overload syntax: Obelisk: #1 #2 #3: S1 is attacking S2 obelisk! / S2 obelisk aggressor has been fragged! / S2's obelisk has been destroyed!
#1 and S1 are the client number and nick, when there is no client involved #1 = -1
#2 and S2 are the team number and name
#3 is the event number, corresponding to the above table.
S3 could be the number of skulls

I don't know if I understood well. My $0.02.

Beta 29
Changelog:
Code:
Chaingun kill message is no longer the same as the machinegun kill message
bot_minplayers works better but still not perfect.
Starting challenge system programming. Currently there are no challenges, it only counts kills and awards against humans. Therefore it is currently called 'statistics'
I would have made so many cool thing like vote menu, team VOIP, support for more maps and so on. But my idea of implementing a 'Challenge' system there a players work online is recorded turned out to take more work than anticipated.

The Challenge system
Currently the challenge system only records kills and deaths against other humans and awards in human only games. My plan is to also count number of times an air rocket hit, accuracy, spreas, two kills with one shot, suicidal attack and many more. Possible with small medals then a round number is reached like 10 air rocket kills.

I don't know if I should remove it again. There is a risk that people get carried away and focus more on the challenges than the games (ie. playing to defensively to get a sprea). However a player that have a hard time winning anything online might find it rewarding that he can follow his progress and therefore keeps playing online.

It has been used in other games and worked great in Call of Duty 4+5 but not so good in Left 4 Dead.

What about including awards for team efforts? I mean, quantity of flag retrievements, flag carrierings, dom point securing spree, (also dom point capturings) skull scoring, etc... That can make players spend a little bit more of teamplay.

Beta 30
Changelog:
Code:
Bots now attack the Obelisk in Overload
Bots should now acknowlegde the gametype property of items (not tested)
If g_awardPushing is enabled players will get frags for killing with a mover (be aware that this makes it possible to be noted for a teamkill even if friendly fire is off)
Changed message for teamkill from "you fragged <TARGET>" to "you fragged ^1TEAMMATE^7 <TARGET>"
Telefrags and crushing are now in Stats
Team only voice chat (cg_voipTeamOnly) enabled by default. While this function is enabled any value the player assign to "cl_voipSendTarget" will be overwritten when a player joins or leaves the team.
Crosshairs will now change to white if a colored crosshair is choosen and for some reason the server does not support it.

VOIP teamspeak possible being the biggest news.
Crushing is mainly targeted q3tourney6ish with its player triggered trap.
While playing with bots and enjoying killing them with the trap I noticed that the game made it appear that I scored points for killing a teammate. I can imagine all sorts of disasters if the game make people think that killing allies is a good idea.

It is currently only on the planning stage. I am considering the best way to tell the client what maps the server has.

Maybe with some maplists.lst file the server should make with mapnames, just like Q2?

Beta 31 is up.
Changelog:
Code:
* Vote system now a lot more robust. Especially the kick functions are now more likely to kick the correct player
* Vote menu for calling votes - does not yet support Kick and Map functions.
* Clamp on cg_errorDecay as suggested by jessicaRA
* New ui_demo2.c by jessicaRA
* From ioquake3 svn-1492: fix overflow in CG_ParseTeamInfo
* From ioquake3 svn-1494: fix potential segfault (found by DerSaidin in xreal)
* From ioquake3 svn-1493: security fix: prevent command injection via callvote
* Mouse wheel works in mods menu
Don't worry about map and kick in vote menu it will come.

I'll try to upload a screenshot showing the Call Vote menu.

EDIT:
And guess who has just found a bug just minutes after release. (me). "Call Vote" is not grayed when g_allowVote is 0, making the client think that he can call a vote.

Could you put grapple between (or at the left side of) gauntlet and machinegun in weapon order and/or make it not being selectable with prev/nextweapon, if it's possible?

Sounds like a good idea... maybe add keybind for gauntlet in options menu. Are there any maps that have the gauntlet?

Apart of some third party maps, my am_mckinleyish gives grapple to every player which spawns in the map. Grin

I'll start redoing the map from scratch tomorrow, since it's damn small. :/
