  1. It looks like an improved revision of the original concept. Same map, remade from scratch with some changes to make it better. So, he did all the work, just borrowed the concept and built on it. It's his version of the map. So, I think he's right to credit himself for it. Nike didn't invent the sneakers. They just improved them. They don't credit the original inventor. They call them Nike's.
  2. It seems like everyone is getting this message. I've seen many users ask about it in the lobby. I too got the same message, but I didn't notice any change at all, so just ignore it. It almost has no effect.

  4. First of all, congratulations I wish that you don't need to replace it, but in case you do, you may wanna take a look at some Chinese mice. It's been 6 months since I last visited the forums. So, Back to the original question, this is the one I've been using for the past 3 years: You don't have to choose 1 color. It has LED light with a beautiful RGB mix. Mine is worth about €4. There's wireless for €12 Just google iMice and see their monstrous collection. I don't think I would ever pay more than $15 for a mouse. I would rather get a new one for $5 or $10 whenever I have an issue with it. Man, €63 would get you 17 iMice! Bottom line is: Chinese products are no less than American/European products, and remember that the whole world imports from China US & EU are among their biggest customers 😀
  5. Hi 🙂 My issue is that when I log in to the client, it usually connects me to the UK server, and my ping to any tunnel server never shows up (unknown), but when it connects me to the Sweden server, it shows up just fine, so I would like to be able to choose which server I want to connect to. Can you add an option to choose manually?
  6. Good day, everybody! 🙂 There's a necessary feature that must be included, which is to link the nickname to the player's ID, so that your friends would still be on your "Friend List" even if they change their nicknames. As of now, that is not the case, so any change to your friends' nicknames would make it seem like they've gone offline, even if their nicks just got an automatic underscore for a short disconnection. So you'd have to re-add every friend whenever they use a different nickname! or else they won't show up as "online" on your list, which makes it useless. You wouldn't even know whether that's your real friend or someone else using the same nick! It's ridiculous to have an imposter on your "Friend List" 😀
  7. Frankly, I don't know But you don't have to translate the title; keep it as it is: SFJ Armageddon
  8. Your client might crash sometimes, and you might get an error message whenever you try to host/join a game. It happened to me, so I figured out a way to fix it, and I thought it may help you as well, in case you experience the same thing. Just go to "RA2\Client" (where your game is installed) and delete these files: "friend_list", "ignore_list", "recent_list" (the client would create new ones). They could get messed up, which would prevent you from playing. If you really care about these lists, you can copy them to another location. Deleting only one or two of them might solve the issue, so you can try that (Quit, delete, restart and test, one by one), but for a guaranteed quick fix, delete them all at once. That would wipe out your lists. To restore them, you can either edit them the old-fashioned way (copying info from the old files to the new empty ones), or make new lists from within the client, as you'd do normally. Good luck! 🙂
  9. Hi, everyone. When a host selects a map, other players in the room are asked to download it to be able to see and play it, if they don't already have it, and often times, undecided hosts keep picking different maps to preview them before selecting one. So, players are left with 2 not very good options. Either to download the maps that the host picks, cluttering their clients with so many unnecessary maps that they probably would never play, OR to not download the maps, and not be able to preview or play them either. You can download, but you can't delete! This is especially irritating with cheat-maps; fake maps which look totally identical to original ones (same pic, title, everything) but with unfair edits. You can't easily tell which one is which, and even if you can, you won't be able to get rid of the fake ones, and you may also "distribute" it to others, unknowingly. My suggestion is to add two useful options which were available back in the day in the original client: 1- Enable players to preview the map before downloading it (makes sense). 2- Add a "Delete" button which would make it much easier to remove clutter maps, with the ability to multi-select them (Ctrl + Select) & (Ctrl A + Unselect) to delete all but the ones unselected. You can also add a "Select" button, so that just clicking the map would only preview it, and not require others to download it until the host decides to "Select" it. I only play a few maps (about 10), but I have over 1,000 maps which I don't want, and the only way to delete them is by going to the game files, and it's not that easy either, because map names are encrypted, so I don't know which ones to delete and which to keep. I'm really surprised that the "Delete" button is not yet available. The client's been created about 6 years ago. This is a key feature, and it's relatively simple to add, compared to the many less-important features that have already been added. I'm not complaining. Just expressing my shock 😲😀
  10. But that doesn't mean that they're the top 10 because they're using more expensive mice. Case in point is the guy who's ranked 6/7 that you mentioned; which proves that you can be in the top 10 with a generic mouse 😉 Absolutely. I'd prefer wireless for anything else, but wired is more reliable for gaming in my view. That's all fantastic on paper, but you mentioned jittering, which could be due to signal/battery issue. Try adjusting DPI for a smoother movement/more accuracy. Click the "+/-" buttons on your mouse once at a time and test it. Good luck
  11. I was gonna mention that option as well; not to say that there's no need to anonymize nicknames, but the contrary. "No spawn previews" was meant for the same reason, but it's not enough, because even when it's used, you still can recognize who's who (Tab to check color/nickname). The new feature would be a better alternative to "no spawn previews". Anyone can change their nickname anytime, including trolls, obviously. That's another issue that needs to be tackled. There's no need to change your nickname, unless if you're gonna troll others or to avoid being targeted (which can be done by the suggested option). We don't want players to change their nicknames, we wanna know who we're playing against, only before the game starts, to give an equal chance to all; for fairness. This is happening to many people, including myself and friends of mine, which are not all pros. We're not getting ourselves into games, we're hosting them. Those "repeat offenders" are the ones that are getting themselves into our games, just for harassment. It happened to me many times, and I've seen it happen to others. They join with different nicknames and target a specific player and then they quit, which ruins the game, because they're not playing to win, they don't care about the game, their only goal is to troll; to make someone specific lose, which is not fair. That would be OK in normal situations, but not when you're being targeted by people who play 1v1 in FFA, as I just mentioned. 1v1 and FFA are two different games. They play 1v1 in FFA for "revenge/payback" or for the "fun" of agitating others. Yes, such people exist, unfortunately. They ruin games, and that's exactly what they want. Yes, but not always. These are dirty games and dirty games are not welcome. If they're playing to win and that would help them win, fine, but they're not, which ruins everything. What would you say about "rivals" in any sport that would participate in games just to attack and handicap specific participants? fair game? Same thing here. Yeah, but we're not talking about the most famous players only. You would know how good a player is when you play against them, and they're not all widely known. You beat those sore losers once or twice and they start targeting you for beating them. That's what we're talking about. It's not a problem for known players only. It could happen to anyone.
  12. Hi, mate 🙂 I agree with you. Right, and that's why I didn't say bad but average Wireless/more expensive/non-Chinese are not necessarily better; these are all misconceptions (BTW, I think wired is better for gaming). We all know that the Chinese are selling exact copies of American products for cheaper prices. Chinese will always be cheaper than the brands, even if they're just as good. I know you're not gonna like this answer, but there is no specific mouse that pros use. I assume that each one of the top players uses a different make or model, yet they're all good. You're welcome Np. I like detailed answers
  13. A good player will be good with an average mouse, and a noob player will still be noob even with the best mouse in the world. It's not the mouse that matters.
  14. Great suggestion! Everyone is supposed to focus on the strongest, most threatening; not player/team X, Y, or Z, so no need to show the nicknames. You attack them for what they do, not for who they are! Anonymizing nicknames in all games is important, to make it fair.
