Post Re: Testing Servers
I think there is some mis-communication going on here.

It sounded like I was saying that cpma maps needed to be tested on non-modded servers. I didn't mean it like that. cpma maps are for testing on cpma servers.

What I was saying, was that the competition provided a test server which was setup for cpma. This can be problematic for mappers that might have cpma installed, but aren't necessarily using it or making their map for cpma. They ended up using some cpma textures from their base. Once they test their map on a non-modded server, they'll see that they needed to include those specific textures from cpma; where as before, the textures worked because the server already had them, and they assumed their map was ready; until the day came when people downloaded the map to play on regular servers (because this was meant to be a regular non-modded map, all along) and found that textures were missing.

---

I also did not mean to say that it's the competition host's responsibility to host these test servers. I think it's a bonus that the competition provides the servers.

Alright.. I agree on that - IMO it's not very likely to happen though.

Mav hosting servers is awesome btw! Big thanks. :) I hope we will somehow manage to organize a game or two.. Not sure how that's gonna be meant to happen though. People should probably go to IRC when they are fancy to play. Playtesting with human players is extremely helpfull - we should all do that some time.. :)

yep, its an odd situation to release a level as complete because those who tested it, coincidentally had the same mod or map file which housed the single missing texture nobody caught..

We can try to set up a time for games here on forum. Not all participants use irc, and even if they can't be there all the time. So it's more safe to write it up here. We did so on Levelmakers forum, and it was good method.

vq3 .. standard.. no extra plugins OR maps.. ensuring the map will work for everyone.

including a map file.. priceless.

Sorry guys, never heard of vq3, and I know thousands of players out there haven't heard of it either. There are still thousands of servers running original q3 builds.

Unless of course, you mean "vanilla q3", in which case I retract my previous statement.

I think I may have confused things a bit as well. baseq3 == vq3

Mav baseq3 != vq3!

baseq3 is the physics of vq3, like cpm is the physics of cpma.

It's actually simpler than all of that.

vq3 is the unmodified game - the game as it is at time of release (including patched updates)

I've never heard of baseq3 being used for anything other than naming the folder all the game content is saved in.
