while playing online, you should make a auto download(like in starcraft), where theres a lobby where you wait and download a map so if you dont have it, you'll download it and th host presses play and youre off!!

That's what doom connector is for ;)

Legacy already has an auto download. if you dont have the wad hosted, legacy will create a "download" folder and place the needed wad in that folder.
as for a lobby where you would sit and wait for the download to finish, that would be the console heh.
once the downloads finshed, you enter the game :)

Yea Doom Connector makes this really easy.
February 25th, 2005, 02:12 PM
Heh unless you get banned from it for no apparent reason. its a shame it turned out the way it did.
February 26th, 2005, 12:00 PM
Yeah, legacy sure does, (remembers the times of playing HR with macro when dc was down... some guy starts downloading, lags us down for about 15 mins, guy finally gets in, THEN JUST LEAVES!! *burn*

Well thats not legacys fault, more so the hosts upstream.
and you could have also set it to not allow anymore than 2 players. *winky*

That's what doom connector is for ;)
Once your banned from Connector where would you go?
I think someone should make a lobby type thing specialy designed for Legacy. Or in the C++ version (when it DOES come out) it would be good to have one implanted.

Why don't you add it to your list of projects :D
The trouble with that sort of thing is getting someone to host it.

DC started out being for Legacy. I think CodeImp went on an ego trip or something. I've been hearing all kinds of bad shit about DC. Might be time to fork the project.
EDIT: Seems he never released the code so no forks for anyone. Bah.

It's funny, I beta tested and promoted the Legacy Connector years ago which was what dc started out as, still beta tested when it changed its name to DC 2, and then was led beta tester and mod for DC 3, then was community voted to be a mod later after it got a new server host. - not long after I got tired of being a mod, I put in my time as one. mostly because of the staff it's self is why I didnt want to mod anymore "maybe because I refused to be a suckup to codeimp". but I didn't really want to be a mod to begin with, hell its doom ,I just wanted to map and play the game.
next thing you know I was banned for asking codeimp why jippy was a mod. - if that's a reason>?, since then it's lost alot of users.
now days it just looks like another zdaemon launcher.
yeah I think your right Alio.
Xio made a irc legacy launcher awhile back and keeps it up to date. http://xio.kicks-ass.net/
also has a real time server browser.
requires mirc and doomlegacy.

Ya i waz on there about 2 years ago got off of it and came back on this year. It really is a shame how bad the mods have gotten and it sucks you got banned dude. code imp needs to read some of these posts to wake up.

You know, back when it was legacy connector and then dc2, I think it was at its peak when it comes to good activity but the bad thing was it became a little vulnerable to someone hacking it, and that was the main reason we needed to mod it. later on when dc3 was invented with a more secure face lift there was less need for moderators, but for some reason more mods were added to the list and eventually it turned into a teamspeak band wagon, next thing you know there were users from dc coming in teamspeak and they thought it would be best to help make decisions for the mods. I don't mean this in a bad way or anything, but most of those users are now the current staff. and the sad thing is they probably wouldn't want to have anything to do with it if it wasn't for team speak.
Its pretty clear that dc did alot better before it had a bunch of mods and everything. when we all only wanted 1 thing from dc, to play doom online.
I think if you took the teamspeak away, the staff wouldn't know what to do heh, because I never see any of them playing any online doom from any server, on dc or any form. however they will post my tutorial (http://www.codeimp.com/connector_tutorial.php?) every once in awhile.
oh btw, the above doesnt have anything to do with Manc, Rellik, MikeReiner, Dagger or Dethz0r.
Just in case you were wondering.
Anyway, the questions been answered so I leave it up to dd or planky to delete/move the post unless somehow it turns out to be that much more informative than it really is heh.

well it would be awsome if we had our own connector type system, that way we dont have 2 rely on DC working. (notice how many crashes there have been??) I think DC is ok though, i have not noticed the mods bieng idiots, mr rocket, i dunno what u did but i think u might be leaving out a bit of your story or something, if not mabye whoever was there was really pissed off about something and just decided to ban u cuz they felt like it! *wacky*
February 28th, 2005, 07:50 PM
Dude they ban people all the time. For no reason now i dont get into any trouble or cause troubel i try to stay away from the mods just because of the banning situation.
February 28th, 2005, 08:19 PM
So sad. It reminds me of the time Boingo got sick of BFG n00bs and took it upon himself to run a server that lacked a BFG. All kinds of n00bs kept hacking it.
So much for my evil plan to invent CS and send all the lamers there. ;)
As for mods on ego trips, it's obvioius that John Romero should have been in charge of DC from the start. :p
February 28th, 2005, 11:04 PM
I think DC is ok though
Yeah I think dc is ok also, I wouldn't have spent so much time on it if I didn't.
i have not noticed the mods bieng idiots
I find it rather funny when you say this, heh well that's a good sign.
i dunno what u did but i think u might be leaving out a bit of your story or something
No that pretty much is it, one day I just logged into dc and then codeimp did.
I asked him why jippy was a mod like 2 times and he banned me.
I figure that it must have been a pretty hard question for him to answer.
At that, I sure wouldn't be wasting my time posting a short blog about dc if there was any good reason why I was banned.
if not mabye whoever was there was really pissed off about something and just decided to ban u cuz they felt like it! *wacky*
Heh well if that was the case, it would first be pretty childish, secondly it would be a flaw by the current staff of the TOS in which they are to abide by. as well as bring us back to what you said you haven't noticed.
