Hi guys, I have a problem with skins
« on: April 11, 2017, 04:16:21 PM »
Since I played one day on the Fox server, and the admin changed my skin I have a problem to choose skins in any xatrix mod server.

On xatrix servers I only have 3 skins to choose from: a bull, "debbie" and another character. All my other skins disappear.

How can i fix this?

Thank you very much

There's a bug in some Q2 clients where the player menu will stop displaying skins if there are certain characters (like space or "!" or whatever) in the model folder name.

Unfortunately I don't recall the details.

Does anyone recall the specifics?

Try looking in baseq2/players and xatrix/players for model folder names beginning with non-a-z or non-0-9 characters.

No. No weird names.
And I can see the skins in baseq2 but not in xatrix/players
I just copied and pasted the one I use to that folder and It looks alright now.

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation
