Hey folks!

It's really nice to see all of your introductions and how we all hold on to our love for the best game ever :D

My name is Erik, 34 from The Netherlands. Like many others I too have been playing since 1999. I started with the UT demo, I must've played that for about 5 years, until I finally jumped onto the full version. The demo didn't even have all the weapons (no sniper!) so it took a little getting used to. Throughout the years I played thousands upon thousands of hours on public servers, from CTF, ICTF, TDM to LMS. The last one being my all-time favorite mode. How I mourn the loss of that gamemode! Most of your nicknames are familiar to me; I think mostly from the Deck16 all-weapons server.

I live alone, have been for the past 5 years after my longterm relationship ended ( she didn't like UT! What's a guy to do? ;) ) Not even any pets! I am a jack-of-all-trades designer. In the past couple of years I did (and still do) illustration work for elementary schoolbooks (digital nowadays), I made puzzles for an escaperoom, directed a view company films, 2D & 3D animations, and made a view small videogames for commercial purposes both in JS and Unity. That's where my heart is, too: making games.

Piley, you're a saint for initiating this! I frequent the Deck16 server but I'll look into this forum's servers too from now on!

Hey mouseDown

Great introduction and thank you for taking the time to post all of that information.

Our website is not very busy but I'm trying.

Do check out our Deck only server and promote it please :)
Its got a great ping and is inspired from the MPUK Deck 16 only server.
Sadly we just don't get many players there any more. Be great to get it busy again.

Also, I'm happy to install LMS on our DM/CTF server if you help attract some players ;)

Frag you soon.

Unfortunately, the new server doesn't appear to be getting much traction, which is a grand shame. MPUK was always the best populated. These days it seems like it's that Deck16 Min Version 400 and TDM RomainiansNet. Don't know if there's any other you guys frequent.

p.s. Perhaps I'm privacy centric, but I'd rather not divulge all my personal details here.

Hi there

No problem about privacy, thank you for registering here :)

You are right, the new server is not busy at all and I'm struggling to understand it.

The old MPUK server was always busy. The new server was busy to start but then quickly got empty.

I've tried rotating different versions of Deck, tried making it Deck, Liandri and Codex on rotation - all with no real luck.

Its strange because the server ping and performance is pretty good so you would think players would like it.

I always ask if players can join and play one or two games with the bots as it will help because others might join. I did that the other night and two players came. But I know its not fun to play on your own.

Perhaps we can plan another Deck night to try and get it busy again.

I'm open for any suggestions as well!

Let me know if you're planning a Deck night and I'll endeavour to join.

Also, I did notice when I was using the DirectX 10 renderer the server kicked me. Using the OpenGL now (which I feel is a lot smoother actually).

Thanks Medor

I do remember seeing players join and the suddenly leave - a kick or perhaps the first time they joined and had to install ACE.

I still have a small suspicion ACE 10 is partly responsible for an empty server.

But i think it's time to arrange another Deck night.

watch this space.

Thanks for the info. Are you saying that A/V should be disabled when playing the game? I can exclude the game exe in Avast, but it seems like ACE is picking up hooks on the Windows kernel, so it wouldn't make a difference.
