Added a few new maps and removed Utopium (looks great, plays terribly).

Any further map suggestions? Chuck 'em at me

Well here are my suggestions for what it's worth. Note I haven't actually played any of these besides running around solo for Goldsource Gold screenshots - but would like to. :hammer:

Hi,

I recently attempted to add several maps from my mapping community (twhl.info) to the server I'm renting from you.
Only one upload-ticket was answered, however none of the maps were actually added to the available maps list.

The maps and ticket numbers are as follows:

• toughworks (ticket #4803489)
• dm_absurdum (ticket #4803483)
• deadlab (ticket #4803465)
• dm_undergroundlab (ticket #4803450)
• The Hill (ticket #4807137)
• Torrent (ticket #4807144)
• Nocturnal & Stack (ticket #4807153)
• Silo War (ticket #4807160)

To be clear - none of these maps have been added, yet all the tickets have been closed by your support agents. A service that requires weeks of waiting to simply upload a map is not good enough. There's no point in renting this server for a mapping community if we can't reliably add maps.

If this issue can't be resolved for prompt future uploads, I'd like a full refund. It should clearly say when purchasing the server plan that direct FTP access is not provided. I could add these maps myself in about three minutes if I had access.

What? You need to open up a support ticket to be able to add custom maps to the server?

What.

It's multiplay. They used to be the best back in the day.

That's those maps added now, at least. Amazing how quickly people get work done when you use words like 'refund'

It works

Reminds me of when BT were pissing around with my broadband connection for weeks when I first moved out.

Sent an angry email from work one day stating that I was prepared to cancel and go with another provider.

Got home and boop! Working Internet. :glad:

I am totally up for some HLDM shooty bangs over the new year weekend. :P

Cool, thanks for adding the requests. Anxious to play these finally, hopefully this weekend.

If you guys start playing, hit me up on Steam. If I'm around I'll join. :)

I don't know if it's me or if it's the server, but it looks like there are some issues related to localization with AMX Mod X, here is an example of what I got :

ML_NOTFOUND: TYPE_LANGMENU

@Archie : I think the provider that host the server is seriously treating you like an idiot. Today, I noticed that it took a lot of time to download the new maps directly from the server, so I went in the console and found out those warnings lines :
Failed HTTP download of http://redirect.multiplay.co.uk/files/hlds_ls/valve/maps/thehill.bsp
So I try to open this link in Opera to see if the fault was on my end and I got a 404 error (File not found), I tried to do the same without the map name and I got a 403 error (Access denied), so I suspect that these morons forgot to upload the maps to the FastDL server. This only happens with the maps you mentioned in your support ticket, the rest works fine however.

You might be better running the server from your own computer at this rate, arch

I'll keep the first post of this thread up to date with the map cycle and server info.

As always, let me know if you want a map on the list

Posted 2 years ago2017-02-18 02:19:50 UTC Post #333586
Yes, I definitely want a map on the list. An empty server is of no use.

All the maps are downloadable from the first post of this thread.

That said, I thought the .res file should allow the download?

flow_control can crash the server. I'd remove it for now. Also, my name seems to be stripped from the .wad file claiming the map in a secret.

Even when I dl the .wad and add it to the valve folder, all runs well but my name. Odd.
Posted 2 years ago2017-03-03 23:00:31 UTC Post #333856
Flow control removed. Don't know anything about the .wad - I put it up exactly as I downloaded it.
