Retro Mode
#1
SUUUUP.

So if you've looked on Discord lately, you'll have noticed lots of revisions and me talking about this.
Basically, I am introducing 'retro mode', whe in retro mode, the server will only chose old maps, and not the new ones. It'll also select maps that do not play normally, as they were removed, but as they're old and farily good, they'll play during retro only. This means some old players will see maps they've not seen for over 3-5 years, and new players will get to see the old maps as new maps.

Some maps are also reverted to their old version in retro mode, this is especially true of Ballin', which had the map overhauled several month after it was made, but this will turn it back to how it used to be over 8 years ago.

So the main question to ask is, what time do you want retro mode enabled? I was thinking to do is on Saturday or Sunday, however i am open to other times if you think of any. Also, let me know if you know of a map that is old and should be played as part of retro mode. You can reply here, or in the Discord.

-cheers!

for obvious reasons, there's only two of them in the cycle for retro, otherwise every 2nd map is roadways.

Ban anyone who complains about there being "too many roadways"

There's no such thing

77 maps, factoring in the usual lull and average play times on maps with active players, you'll probably only get one active play per map on each retro day.

Might be enough then, I ran a test on sunday afternoon (UK time), using about 30 maps. Nothing broke, except a typo in the cycle script causing a freeze, but i did it whilst i was awake and on the PC on purpose so i could fix it all ASAP. For the retro mode only maps, some of them have been modified slightly to fix any glitches, mostly known excaping holes in a few.

I also thought it'd be fun to bring back maps from many many years ago, that might introduce them to people who've never played them before, Karts vs Ranchers, Wharf & Wet Pants for example, so hopefully that goes well and doesn't cause a huge backlash of haters. If so, i reckon KvR will bring in the most raised eyebrows, after all, it was just a silly minigame on the roleplay server from like 11 years ago now. I think probably only me and Confucius will remember that now. Having said, Canyon Pass is still there too, which i seem to remember was another minigame originally (/rancher, based on its filename being rancher.pwn)

Retro Mode is now coded to automatically play, on Saturdays from 08:00 til midnight, GMT/UTC+1 (Paris time).

This first one will be important for ironing out glitches in especially the older maps and the new core, and if they load correctly, locally it all worked fine.
If it breaks, harass me on Discord DMs, I'll unmute discord on my phone for that day, so even if i am asleep, if you harass me on Discord it'll still wake me up.

You can forcemap (/fmap) any map in cycle, including those in retro mode only. You can also force a non retro map on retro day. That isn't an invitation to go nuts, its a note so you know you can force a map and restart server to load that if needs be.

Hello
Last Saturday I had to leave.
the little that I tested (of memory.. a little in the morning and at the end of the day) I saw no difference only the usual maps
No retro mode
I'm not sure it really works
As I did not test long enough I did not dare to bother you in Discord and I did not see other players talking about it

So it should have run from 8AM until midnight server time, which is GMT +1. Did the server ever say it was in retro mode? it should give a message at least once per hour when its active.

I'm not at home all this weekend, as im visiting my boyfriend about 200 mile away. So unless the issue is found quickly, i can't do anything until Monday.

OK I misunderstood I thought it was a retro mode occupying all day.
I will watch Saturday
PS: I did not see any text referring to "Retro mode"
