  • Reviving Max.Essentrix?

    Just FYI, since it seems like the max.essentrix.net server isn't going to come back up, I want to point out that any ambitious server admin-wanna-be can single-handedly revive max.essentrix.net

    If you want to run the max.essentrix.net server, all you have to do, more than likely, is pay the $32 per month for an 8 capacity server to Essentrix and hit up Rook for the CA+ plus code, as he is the care-taker (and you might not even need to do that).

    To contact essentrix, you email chris --- at ---- essentrix.net and since essentrix.net domain is still held by Essentrix, of course, you would be able to get that as well.

    And ... if no one is interested, it might not be a bad idea for vis --- who runs the HDZ servers, to inquire about getting domain forwarding from Max so the handful of players who don't seem to know about HDZ can still play CA+.

    Just my thoughts, Max seemed perpetually busy.

    Not a bad idea. I mean divide that fee between 3-5 people and you've got yourself a server. When I participated in helping finance a server it was easier for me to just pay a few months at a time ahead of time. Could never remember monthly without a paper bill in my hands.

      Fortunetly the ca community has the sense to just move to another server when one goes down, rather than like with trinicom leaving and taking pub ctf with it. I saw 12 people on ca.clanhdz.com the other night.

      Hah, maybe someone is willing to pay $4/month for a 1 player essentrix server that forwards people to clanhdz

          It is one of the rare occasions where someone would immediately inherit a large player base. But only if something is done within the next week or two, otherwise it becomes a Trinicom-style ghost town of an idea.

              8? I wanna see the old days of 16 player matches
              Or in QW 32 player matches

              Hell lets use DarkPlaces and get a 64player match! Hrmm... Need a good large map, and RuneQuake for added insanity.... You know I really do suddenly like this idea of a 64 player game.... It would be utterly nutters.

                My head starts to spin when more than 12 players are present.

                16 vs. 16 or 32 vs. 32 CTF ... whew, it would require either massive coordination or one team that was disproportionately strong to capture the flag.

                As it is, even a 4 on 4 game it can be pretty tough to get the flag back to base.

                      I recall back in the day, you could set the maxplayers in DarkPlaces up to 64, and if you tried going higher a textbox would popup and say
                      More than 64players?! First, question your sanity, then, email LordHavoc at
                      So on, so forth.

                        Pretty sure DP still says that.

                        Unfortunately, I don't think Firefox says that anymore Apparently now it's too popular and has to appear professional.

                          Actually now it doesnt question your sanity until you try to go over 255 max players

                          LordHavoc is insane like that =)

                          255 deathmatch7 on a suitably sized map would be SO laggy....
