Hope your not sick of me and my ideas yet, but heres another one. :)

Time and time again, I join the server with my crappy 533mhz PC (sad, yes), and the map changes while I'm loading a map, thus making me have to quit and rejoin. This is a pain, because it takes me a long time to load maps, and doing it twice takes about 10 minutes.

It would be really nice if there was a read only cvar I could access in qtracker or something that would show what the timer is set at, so I can predict if I'm going to get kicked..

[COLOR=red]Marker0077 EDIT:[/COLOR] I edited the 1 profound word & swapped it with a word of the same meaning (crappy). As anal retenant as this may seem, we are apart of the gamingforums network & some of their rules (mainly the JK2 forums rules) that do not permit profound words. You can get away with some words (depending upon which ones they are) as long as no one complains about it, but this was one of those that you can't.

Keep in mind, the entire JK2 section of gamingforums is family orientated. Please refrain from using profound language & go over the forum rules. Thank you.

Never. More feedback is always welcome, so don't sweat it. :-)

Don't feel too bad, I use a 600Mhz myself.

I am planning on doing a map pack for Duelers Full. Map Pack A will feature mostly small maps under 1 MB for this very reason but not all of the maps are this small. It is hard to find good small maps but I was able to find quite a few for duel mode, not anywhere near as many for FFA but there are some in there.

I will more than likely focus on the larger FFA maps only in map pack B but we shall see how that goes.

There already is one for the map timelimit, it comes with the base game. The timelimit is stored in a CVar called "timelimit" (lol) which you can probably view from QTracker. I use GameSpy 3D myself (not GameSpy Arcade) & I can see the timelimit just fine with it. I highly recommend using GameSpy 3D, it's by far the #1 gaming browser in the U.S.A. All Seeing Eye is good also but that is better for the Euros.

This will not remedy your problem though. I think what you are trying to ask for is a CVar that the remaining timelimit is stored in, which I personally like as well. I don't think it would be much of an add either but that's Lee's department, not mine.

As always, thanks for the feedback.

To be more definitive, I basically want to see what I would see with cg_drawTimer out of game.
