Maps, Wads and Mods / Re: Odamex CTF

« on: March 31, 2007, 02:04:50 »
I finally decided to take a look at the map set, and it's pretty good.  Some of them are quite interesting, others are a  tad bit meh, but overrall, I like it.

I think I'll shorten my review and just say that all of deathz0r's maps are the ones that suck and everything else is awesome.

Aw, 'noswitchonpickup' isn't supported?  Damn.  Oh well.

Technical Support / Reorganizing the list

« on: January 20, 2007, 14:48:19 »
Okay, I noticed a major problem.  If you change the list to show, say, the servers with the most players first, it will show you the list in that order, but that's it.  It does not actually change the list for you... well, here's an example:

Let's say that when you first connect to the launcher, a CTF server is the first on the list, a Doom 2 coop second, and a Doom 1 coop third.  You re-arrange the list so that it shows the servers with the most players first.  Now the Doom 2 coop is first, the Doom 1 second, and the CTF third.  If you join the first one on your list (D2 coop, as it appears), you will actually join the CTF server.  While on your screen it looks like the server list has changed, it actually hasn't.

Huh... a rather interesting history for a name.  I got to say, that whole entire chatlog was hilarious.  "Let's go play some WAND!"

General Discussion / Video Games Live

« on: January 14, 2007, 21:58:44 »
Last night I went and saw Video Games Live, and lemme tell ya: it was awesome.  It was easily the best show I've ever seen; it had incredible music from awesome games, laser and light shows, cool events, awe-inducing choirs with amazing vocals ... it was a blast.

At one point they had a guy come up on stage to play Space Invaders on the big screen, and they gave him a shirt which had the little ship that you control on the back.  What they did was give him a button to fire and tracked his movements on stage so that were he moved, the ship moved.  It was really funny to watch him play like that.  Meanwhile, the orchestra played the music of the game and sped up accordingly whenever the aliens got faster.

Another portion had two guys taking seperate turn playing Frogger, and the orchestra played the music in accordance to what was happening on screen in real-time.  As soon as one of them died, the music stopped, and then the orchestra started playing again, so it was a really neat little touch.

At times they played music for games I had never played, liked, or even heard of; still, every segment was pure bliss.  They had one guy come up and play Final Fantasy songs on the piano, which was awesome enough.  Later in the show, they had him come up on stage and perform the Mario theme song blindfolded - and he didn't miss a single note.  Once he did that song, he took off the blindfold and played what was either the Super Mario World or the Yoshi's Island music pretty fast.  After about half a minute of it, he played the sound you hear when you have 100 seconds left, and played even faster, to which the crowd (myself included) cheered and applauded.

All in all, it was a night that I'll remember for years and years to come, and I'll definitely see it again if it ever shows up in Arizona.  I cannot recommend this enough; if VGL shows up in an area near you, go and see it!  Trust me, it's well worth it.

Have a little patience and I think you will be pleased.
Patience is my middle name.

And trust me, I'm still pissed at my parents for giving me that middle name.  I mean, come on!  Who the hell names their kid Patience?

How did you guys come up with the name Odamex, anyway?  It's both strange and catchy.  Also, what does the half-circle logo mean?  Is it a representation of something?

Hey everybody, it's Zaranell.  You might know me as Shadow Lord on the Skulltag forums.  I decided to change my screen name since there's like 20 billion different screen names with the word "shadow" or a variation of it in them.

I thought I'd join up here seeing as how the ST community is falling apart day by day.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not just joining this forum because it's some "back-up/plan B" kind of thing; on the contrary, I've been interested in joining and learning more about Odamex.  It looks to be better run and maintained than that of Skulltag or ZDaemon, without any over-ambitious goals or retarded "I'll ban you if you disagree with me" admins.

So, might I ask about the current progress of Odamex?  It looks pretty good, and I'm eager to try it out.
