Well this is certainly a unique idea. It tracks how many times you have captured a flag, returned a flag, or killed a flag carrier. It also interfaces with Winamp and Windows Media Player. Well, as I went into a CTF server to test this, I noticed that someone there had it. So I asked them for their comments. Comments are from ''sexy | blade'' (I have edited these so that they look grammatically correct, and so they are not fragmented as I had sexy | blade input the notes directly into my kill tracker.) To quote sexy | blade:
The captracker works well with all my music files, and it works really good with winamp. One flaw is that it doesn't minimize, and i wish it had a kill tracker in it. I like how you have to join spectator to change your name, because it prevents people from copying your name and controlling your kill tracker
As with sexy | blade, the captracker does work well with Winamp. I had problems interfacing with Windows Media Player, where I would search for a song, and Windows Media Player would ''pop up''. (My taskbar would show up) and it would not change to the song I had searched for. Although regular song scrolling does work. I think that this is a great idea for all the CTF'ers out there! Track your CTF stats! My only regret is that the author didn't quite make the interfacing with Windows Media Player just right, but that might be just me. And as sexy | blade said, it would have been nice if it had its own Kill Tracker and minimizer to go with it.
