Did you mean non-contact "injuries"? Or were they hurt by their jerseys? I don't get it. :D

Spell-check strikes again! They were in Jersey when the injuries occurred and the non-contact gurneys were adjusted.

The caption at the bottom of the screen on the 2nd pic reads...

A "deadly" fight between roommates leads to "death".

Wow. No shit?

Let's inject more drama into the news by using adjectives to describe identical nouns. It won't be excrementatiously shitty at all.

I'm increasingly convinced the "participatory" grading system has impaired the education today's graduates are receiving. I'm not sure about the reporting in this case but I see a lot of bad grammar and spelling in news items posted on the news web sites and the authors and editors are largely under 40. I have concluded this is not merely the rush to publish but represents inexperience and carelessness. I was told once that newspapers are written at a 6th grade level. Evidently sixth grade isn't what it used to be.

LOX renames the server log each day/week/month depending on configuration. I have it doing a rename daily. This keeps the log files smaller and it archives each log for inspection later. I don't know if this helps performance or not but the "old school" Quake2 logs just get enormous if you don't attend to them manually and I didn't want to do a lot of server maintenance. I have not added this functionality to TMG yet. It might be time to add it soon and attend to some of the latent bugs later just to see if it makes a difference in the performance of the game on your virtual server. In the mean time I advise deleting or renaming your server log every week, don't let it get huge, it's useless as a log once it gets big anyway. Either that, or don't log, the chat logs are not a factor and they renew daily. For the time being, on txrwz I have disabled logging.

Map rotation is (mostly) fixed.
Server will select each map in maplist file in sequence without skipping unnecessarily.
Maplist file now works correctly with min/max player load sensitivity and the server will select the next map based on player count if the min/max values are used in the maplist in the format:

q2dm1 "Edge" 2 10

If no min/max values are given, the server assumes 0 to maxclients.

Server now recognizes when a listed map file can't be found and it handles it by reporting it in messages and server log and reverting to the previous map. Once the map is re-played it moves to the next valid map in the list. This can be improved by skipping to the next map right away but I felt this incremental change needed posting for now. The map selection code is kind of a mess with timers, voting, randomization and selection all involved and I didn't have a lot of time on hand to scrap and re-write it.

Add server option to display scoreboard on death. Default to off.
Cvar was added ctf_deathscores, default value 0.
Inhibits display of scoreboard in fragged player console on death.

OK, I've been doing some testing here.

Didn't it always pop up on fragged player's screen on death? I know that's the default on most mods and I have not (intentionally) changed that in TMG.

I've never seen a scoreboard pop up on respawn.

Are these both an issue or only the pop on respawn?

Interesting. I'll look into it. I didn't think I changed anything to make it do that. If you set newscore 0 does it still pop up?

Added Capture counts to the scoreboard per your request. It's not like LMCTF but it's more like an enhanced version of the existing TMG CTF scoreboard.

Added the console variable "newscore" to allow you to select the new version or the old one if you don't like it or if it has bugs. Default is 1, the new version, set it to 0 with rcon or in your configuration as you see fit. You can toggle it "live" on the server with rcon to compare layouts.

Pull the new code to your local repo and recompile.

I added capture tracking to the player HUD tonight. Scoreboard modification to follow. The TMG scoreboards are one-line entries for players, not multiline like LMCTF so adding another element needs some work but the statistic is tracked in the player data, now it's just a matter of laying out the scoreboard format.

It's no wonder the story became a media circus, too. The murder happened Christmas fuckin' morning, and the victim was some innocent cute little blonde beauty pageant kiddie. The crime scene was gruesome as hell, blood EVERYWHERE. Something like that happens to a 6 year old kid, it's already gonna be a big news story, but when it happens Christmas morning, that's exponentially more shocking and horrifying.

You gotta feel so bad for her folks too. Their 6 year old kid is stabbed a zillion times and killed right under their noses in their own home while they were in bed sleeping and completely unaware. And Christmas is supposed to be a rather HAPPY time of the year that most people always look forward to. What do they have to look forward to every year for the rest of their lives other than remembering what happened on that day. Fuckin' sad.

I don't know where you get your information from but she was hit on the head and strangled, covered in a blanket and hidden in the wine cellar section of the basement. Nobody found her for 8 hours after she was reported missing according to the reports.

There was DNA found on the victim that was inconsistent with the family DNA, indicating an outsider was a likely perpetrator.

I don't know why it can't be added. It's just a matter of adding the capture count to the player state and pulling it up. I think it might be possible to add it to the player HUD while we're at it.

In a clip from a 60 Minutes interview aboard the Trump private plane Melania claimed she wrote the speech herself. It wouldn't surprise me if she copy-pasted all of it from different sources. Intellectual dishonesty goes hand in hand with moral dishonesty and the Trumps have plenty of that.

All of the current candidates are morally bankrupt.

To quote Douglas Adams: No one who wants the job should by any means be allowed to have it.

I'm back from Houston and there are no more problems there, for a while at least... they can't seem to get along without me. :)

I'd like you to test that it's no longer possible to choose a map via rcon or mapvote that doesn't exist on the server. If you have a map in your maplist file and the actual .bsp isn't on the server then it should reject the changeover to the map, both by mapvote command or by selecting it from the menu.

My next plan is to fix the map rotation so it stops skipping files in the list.

Jury finds them in the clear? Phew, it's a good thing too. I was honestly worried that the cops fired upon him due to the color of his skin.

If you listen closely and watch the second body cam closely you will observe that the officer at the window with the driver was black. He was also most at risk and appears to have fired first. It wouldn't surprise me if he called for backup before approaching the vehicle and contacting the driver. He also says the reason for stopping him was because he "turned right in front of us". This would seem to indicate he had a partner in the car or another car was behind him.
