Hi all,
So I am a player of dday: normandy. If you do not know what is it, it's an all total conversion of quake2. But it use all quake2 clients.

They create a release on ddaydev website, based on r1q2, and the developpers decide to use .bsp.override feature. for exemple, the file dday2civ.bsp.override will override dday2.bsp file.

My problem is, that i think that q2pro is a realy best client of r1q2, and I created a release with this client (here) And my release can be published on ddaydev home page, if I can integrate .override feature in my release.

So I created an isssue on q2pro GitHub project.

I really hope that somebody will can help me, because I really do not know how to do that :(

Override files are used on server side, not clients. Entities are introduced by the server code into the maps and their placement is communicated to clients no matter which version client is used.
No changes are needed in client code to support overrides.

I use q2pro r1503... on this fork

I am not sure to understand that you say. did you say, that override feature can be added in the gamex*.dll of the mod ?

How to send entities from a server ?

[├ędit]
haa yeah I understood, there is an "ents" folder who override automaticly all entities.

Thank you for your answer

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
