Trouble Shooting / Re: Odd problem just started happening with Q2

Try removing anticheat. If it works, then you can disable antivirus and put AC back to see if that is causing the issue.

Haha I had to log in just to post because this is funny.

Absolutely, 100%, not a wallhack

He is spamming items when no one is around, prefiring corners when no one is there, checking corners when entering rooms despite no one being there, reacting slowly to people coming into vision, AND he even gets blind sided by ssg at one point coming around a corner.

The funny part though, I'm almost entirely certain that justin is deft. While he is a very skilled player, anyone can look that noobish when screwing around with the low tier players on dm. If it isn't deft, then still funny, but not side splitting.

Quake / Re: Open letter to Quake 2 fam (servers dying fast)

Jehar honestly made the biggest difference from what I can remember. Weekly events, tried to get newer players involved, had the appropriate circles to advertise Q2 to other arena FPS players like QL duelers.

We'd need some one who was very social, in a lot of circles, was willing to teach, liked a lot of game modes, and could put on regular events with twitch streaming in order for any kind of anything to be successful. Maybe a duel or 2v2 tournament would be cool, but even like instagib events or jail break would really help. More casual community events such as the king of the hill event, but maybe in a format that doesn't eliminate new players so quickly would be cool. I don't think large cash prizes are necessary, but some would be cool. I think the biggest importance is a regular schedule of repeating events that happen every week.

Getting people to switch to Q2 isn't going to happen, but getting a few old schoolers to come back and play is likely and maybe giving some newer curious players a fun place to enjoy some events would be good. No real events going on in NA QL other than the odd CA tournaments, pubs, and pickups so it might be a good angle.

The other thing that everyone can keep in mind is that newer players with a competitive mind set typically like map variety so that they can see different styles and maybe get an advantage instead of playing the 2 decade old favorites of most of the people that are still kicking around. So when you do play, try to let newer players do the map picking and maybe get some knowledge of a good variety of maps just in case. (this mostly stands out for duel, not sure it is very applicable in other mods)

I don't think anyone with a negative stigma in the community should touch any type of admin position for any type of event. That includes most of the TDM players, retired or not, and most of the people vocal on the forum. We would need some one like Jehar to really make a difference, but he is too busy and doesn't care about Q2 anymore :(

Just had to throw in my 2 cents since I actually care about this subject. Glad I decided to check the forums and saw the thread.

I certainly hope this is some photoshopped joke. Any 50BMG round is gonna contain upwards of 600 grains. That'd be like trying to catch a baseball being shot out of a potato gun at 250mph barehanded. The Taurus Judge which is a snubnose revolver capable of firing 410bore shotshells is bad enough. This shit is just insane. :D

i find it amusing that they are AP rounds

I remember the same problem occurring with forkjumping, and the times were left up for about a week before someone actually did something. About 4 or 5 times from the bottom of the scoreboard were permanently deleted because of it. Just one of the many things that I don't agree with about how the jump server is currently being run. :<

If the jump server is "being run" anything like the ffa servers, the way those work is someone alerts me if there's a problem and I tend to it.


since thomas decided to necro post, I'll contribute!

Quadz' "being run" in quotes referencing servers just made me think of a datacenter that is nothing but a bunch of sysadmins on a giant hamster wheel

the mental image was worth the necro post

Q2 Training Camp / Re: Players needing\wanting Training, sign up here

Oh man, do i suck  :bigcry: :)
Thing is when i play vanilla deathmatch i remember where all the weapons and armor etc are, i just get killed before i get to them. Back in the day,  when q2 first came out i was a terror, now im just lunch.
Anybody know of a how to or demo or want to meet me on a server?

easiest way of getting better is watching

1. watch good players play (spectator 1 on dm/vanilla, or stop by a tourney server when people are on there)

2. record demos of the games you play, and watch them afterwards to see what you did wrong

That's the glitch where you clip onto a brush and it pushes you really fast to the ceiling of a map? If that's the same glitch he used, there have been quite a few maps which have been hotfixed by admins, in order to prevent that glitch being used. Just notify one of the jump admins and they probably will help you out.

Hit me up in irc tonight and i'll fix it.

You have to really carefully inch yourself to the edge of a ledge, which will rocket you up to the top of the map. It won't work on certain ledges, though.

It's courteous to at least not do that on maps with 15 or more times on the board, since when you get a first place like that and an admin removes it, it permanently knocks off 15th place, leaving a hole in the scoreboard.

from this, it sounds like the jump community frowns upon using a glitch like this to get a good time on a map

so despite 2dum being 2dum, it is still kind of a dick move for ex to do that

Never seen such an odd issue with a super micro board like that. Usually super micro boards are rock solid without any kind of issues

Ya know, if you hadn't refused to play me so many times, I'd probably have some good quality matches to post of you and I.

i have some demos of some pretty close games on edge, because that is all you would ever play me on

considered replying with a few games, but i don't feel like sorting through thousands of demo files

I was actually able to overlap the images on my phone.
Really good 3d effect. 

Although, where you look and how you move are so interconnected in the quake games.
I take it there is no way to strafe jump or anything like that?

The first thing that pops into my mind is watching some ridiculous fella with a giant VR head set on snapping his neck left and right the whole time he is playing
