    My only issue was when playing along with Nap on Capuzzo today ... as soon as the dyno exploded at the first barrier (standing next to it mind you) my screen blacked out and found myself having to reconnect to the game. One and only time something like this has happened. I have been playing and get kicked out, but not like this.

    Silent Mod's instability... i know it all too well...

  2. Hey guys, i'm writing about changing the main page server info links from GameTracker to Trackbase (or Splatterladder), as TB and SL are much better than GT since they show the name colors and also show more info about the servers.

    Trackbase is a stronger recommendation since it's more reliable than Splatterladder with being online, since there were some times the site was down for an extended period of time.

  3. This is..... very heartbreaking...

    I'm deeply sorry to hear about her passing, please pass along my sincerest condolences to her husband and family.

     

    And @kate if you can read this in heaven, this is from me to you:

  4. Usually if xp, class promotions or admin levels are reset, you can't restore them. and even though your admin level can be quickly re-issued, your xp and class promotions are gone and need to be re-earned.

  5. @Bier Well, it is just one computer after all. :p

    i'll reluctantly depart Windows 7 as my main OS when i get a new computer, which may happen soon.

    if i had to however, i'll be good on security patches until October 2024, for both Windows 7 and Firefox.

    Firefox ended feature support for Windows 7 through 8.1 with version 115 so i'm now on the ESR Channel, which 115.x esr will be supported until September 2024.

    As time goes on though, living on Windows 7 will get harder and harder, and harder as software stops supporting it.

  6. @Luis Enrique You got better english than whoever made the concept, yes that works.

    But Windows doesn't actually take long to install, at most about 15 minutes, averaging around 7-10mins.

    the part that takes the longest in setting up windows is the Windows Updates and Device Drivers (not including uninstalling bloatware).

  7. I still have Windows 7, and still getting security fixes by using BypassESUv12, so i'm good until 8 October, 2024 when Windows Embedded POSReady 7 goes EOL.

    but i may end up getting a new computer before then.

     

    as for this concept for Windows 12, i love it but i still saw the poor english during the install lol.

    "This is not take a long, just sit relax"

    it should be spelled like this:

    "This won't take long, just sit back and relax"

  9. afaik as long as you run bots, you can't change how real players behave even with any var that forces team balance as the bots will just even the teams. silent just doesn't have the options for this, but most of the time i don't encounter any issues and if the odd person really didn't want to balance the teams when nobody else can, we can always use !putteam.

    • Confused 1
  10. @kate Give Original Venice and other requested maps (e.g. Glider) another chance for god's sake, it's been several years since it was last on the server and the software had changed since then, also on my private servers it never crashed once so i think it could be the server config or a server-side script.

    as i have no lua scripts or server-side nonsense or excessive settings.
