New Slide server hosted by yours truly




Bam gave me an updated progs for the server with some bugfixes. The map Slidefox now works.

I've encorporated everything into one download. This .zip file now has everything you need, including the custom maps from badaim's post.

Get the mod here!

DNS: slide.servegame.org
If the above fails for some reason, you can connect directly to my IP: 24.239.83.63

I set up a dedicated Slide server. My internet connection speed is 5Mbit down, 500Kbit up (translates into ~600KB/s and ~60KB/s). I changed sys_ticrate to .02 from default .05 improve smoothness. Bam can tell you that at the default ticrate it gets choppy when you start going really fast... at .02 it's smooth. I've created a batch file that automatically starts the server on high priority, so it gets the computer's resources before anything else. This ensures smooth gameplay on the server. I vispatched my maps, so when you connect to my server you might want to use r_wateralpha x where x is a value lower than 1 (I reccomend .5 or .4) and r_novis 1, or vispatch the map yourself.

The .zip file listed above contains two .pak files, and a maps folder. To install the mod, make a folder in your Quake folder and call it slide. Copy the files over and copy your config.cfg and autoexec.cfg (if you have one) from your ID1 folder so you don't have to configure Quake again. Then make a copy of your quake shortcut and add "-game slide" to the command line like this:



=========================
meTchDM—slide.servegame.org:26001
Or, if the DNS fails for some reason, 24.239.83.63:26001

meTch showed me a server in Europe that was running a deathmatch mod he coded a while back. I liked it and asked him if he would send me the progs so I could host it on my server here in the US. I figured I would run it alongside Slide on port 26001.

Notable features:
-Health affects jumping ability; get over 100 health and you jump much higher than normal; get less than 15 health and you can't jump at all

-Grenades explode on impact

-Rocket Launcher now fires retarded rockets that don't go in a straight line, however, it fires much faster than the origional RL. Useful in a small room

-Modified Nailgun; nails stick to players and deatonate after a few seconds. This only works for the Nailgun, not for the Super Nailgun

-Super Shotgun is now more powerful and fires twice in rapid sucession, but there is a loading time of a few seconds. Also, there is a random chance that it will blow up and kill you

-Corpses can be gibbed

-There are sounds available that play after a player dies. They are available for download here

-The mod is completely server-side (except the sounds). However, it works without the sounds (you'll just get a lot of missing sound errors) so there are no downloads required to play.

I just ordered an AMD Athlon64 x2 7750BE 2.7GHz (BE stands for black edition). Even at 2.7GHz is a vast improvement over my single core Sempron LE-1250 overclocked to 3GHz. When I run the server, I set it to high priority in task manager so it gets resources before anything else, but even so it should improve the server somewhat.

Hi Foq,

Polarite's slide server was usually good fun (even with Peg's huge ass getting in the way 90% of the time), apologies if I have missed it in your post but what's the addy/port?

Kind regards

Monty

Doh, left out the most important piece of information... I'll edit the post

Even if there is a slide server somewhere in Euro I feel a *good* Slide server is nescessary in the U.S. so U.S. players can have relatively low lag compared to playing on an Euro server (and other servers that host Slide on port like 26005 or something... we all know those lag horribly)

Hmm... slidefox crashes the server for some reason. Something about a runaway loop error
