  1. [Closed] PXG Deathrun Testing Session #2

    Fucking rude! I started the server up 5 minutes ago and it didn't die. I'll also be doing a less public test about an hour before to make sure it works
  2. Hi, So yesterdays test was fun, no fast download, public iPrintLnBold messages, crashes, late start up, other issues.... but today I can ensure you that I've fixed at least 90% of those issues have been fixed. I can't exactly fix my own incompetence now! So, I'm running a second testing session today at 7:30pm BST ( you time ) for around 2 hours. Like last time the server will be on dr.pxg.me and I will be in the testing section of discord for anyone that wants to complain... chat to me about the mod. I've fixed lots of little things and a lot of bigger issues so hopefully we're going to have a clean run today and we can look at a release for this week some time.
  3. Bastard. I mean, it would be good to have you around. We're all chatting in the Slack these days ( well the cool kids anyway ) so feel free to jump in and have a chat
  4. Haha, That position is taken up with enough people that don't do anything. Although Community Lead is basically going to be the second highest position
  5. Hi All, So recently it has been made blatantly obvious that I haven't been keeping an active and healthy dialog with the community about where the community is at and what we have in the works or what we have planned. For this I wholesomely apologies. To work towards sorting this out I would like to update everyone on the status of the things we are doing. Deathrun Well, I wouldn't have ever gotten out of this alive if this wasn't the first thing I mentioned. I am very sorry about the delays, miss communication and the lack of communication. So, where are we today with Deathrun? Well, I'm glad you asked! We have a lot of the mod done! we started from the original sources and worked our way up and have built the mod in a way that tries to mix the best parts of the PXG mod with the Best parts of the old Raid mod as well as throwing in a lot of new features and pretty things. Quick fire round: When will it be done? - I honestly don't know, I can't put a time on it. I'd like it to be finished by the end of the month... I want it to be done then but I don't know when it will be done due to @Matt.'s and my schedules. I can ensure you that we will be announcing it everywhere when it's done! Why is it not done yet! - Lives... Mainly. Lack of motivation partly, Personally issues, work, etc. Bla Bla boring. We started mid August 2017 and we have been working on it for a few months here and there. We have started working on again recently and thats why I think it's okay to say it might be done by the end of the month Does it have Lives - Yes, but only if you are a VIP or you earn them. Does it have cool stuff - Yes Are leaderboards and fastest times fixed - Yes Does it have RTD - No Can we see previews - No! Haha... I mean, You will see it when it's ready. How often will the mod be updated after Release? - Don't laugh but we are aiming to do a minor / bug fix / new small features update every month. As well as that we would like to do a major update every 6 months where we will take the feedback from the community and apply large scale fixes and changes. Ask more if you want to know more. Servers in General and everything else. As for most of the other servers, we've closed most of them down now. The only ones left are Deathrun and Promod as you can most likely guess. We've shut down the Eu servers semi permanently and we've shut down CJ and all other servers due to a lack of players and lack of time to manage the servers. As well as the players issue, at the time of closing them down we where also changing a lot of the way we run PXG to lower the monthly cost due the dip in donations. We are eggar to start some of the servers back up but we want to give the mods a clean up and get the server instances running cleanly before we do. As well as that needing to be done we will likely not start that work until we see an outcry for the other server I think we are going to keep it to the two for now. This allows us to focus on the Deathrun mod too :D As for everything else, here is a quick update, When it comes to anything regarding PXG, please bring it to me instead of Nick or Sharp. Nick has taken a back seat and is happy to continue being part of the community and will keep the lights on but other than that he has stepped down from the 'Doing stuff' role. He does still manage our servers though :P. Shap has a life and is pretty busy with work and playing other games so from what I understand, he'd be happier if you didn't contact him on a PXG Related thing. You can always contact me here on the forums via Pm's or in discord at MiKeY#3704 or if you are old you can use the emails ( [email protected] ). I'm happy to talk about what ever and any general question or hate you are welcome to send my way. If you have any suggestions then I do prefer for it to be posted on the forums so others can share their input too. Everything Else I'm working on the following things for PXG: Deathrun (duh), Map rotation picker, Leaderboards, Nicer theme, Better servers page, Nicer logo? I need help with this one, Better B3 ( Join commands, More logical permission set, More commands, Real Rank saving, more ), And lots of less interesting things. All of those things are being worked on but none of them have end dates other than the Map rotation picker which is aimed at being done with the Dr mod. I Hope this updates everyone. If you have more questions then simply post bellow and I'll be sure to answer them and update the topic to include them.

  7. To be super clear about this. I also have work to do on the mod coding wise but it's only a small amount and the sort of thing I can do in an afternoon so it's mostly the weapons at the moment. Once the test server is up we'll be putting up a suggestions area so you can make suggestions to what should be changed or what should be improved etc. We've tried to focus on bring the best parts of the EU and NA mod into this new mod and I mean new mod. We forked Braxi's original code on github and have been working from that ever since. It's going to be very fun to see how all this plays out and to see what people think
  8. Woo, Sh*t's been dooone. We've upgraded our forums to IPB4.2 which comes with some awesome new things. I won't go into to much detail but if you want you can go here to find out more. We've now got our own Facebook official... I mean totally unique Reactions System which is cool AF. You can now show that you aren't just a 1 dimensional existence, you can now show all of your 2 dimensional emotions . If you guys post anything cool, then anyone with power that can be bothered to get off their a*s can Feature it which it totally... Okay? I think... well it's better than nothing! Clubs: We have clubs now. Not really sure on what they are used for or how they are good but you can find them under the Browse menu. You can make your own clubs ( like, micro communities or some sh*t. You can ask me and I'll enable it so you can have a private posting place and stuff ) if you so wish and if I feel like it doesn't seem too stupid then I'll approve it and you can invite all of bestest best friends and keep feeling like you have some kind of life... Wait... am I doing that thing where I talk about myself again... I mean, Yeah, Clubs are cool. Give me some suggestions and I can set a few Clubs up to see what we can use them for... Better than just keeping it turned off. Oh, We also have a new logo or something. I guess when I unfu*ked the theme the new logo just happened to become a thing. I'm playing with the concept but it's looking pretty tidy so far. If you hate it then say but please give me a reason and don't be a little bit*h... Oh, Deathrun mod... This year from what I've been told. Maybe within the next few weeks to the end of this month. Thats if everything goes right. We'll be bringing out a beta / test server just to make sure it doesn't set of fire or eat us alive so that should be fun. I'll keep you all posted. In the mean time. Enjoy bit*hing about how I've broken the site... PS: We're still getting IPB back to stable state so if you see things that are missing then ignore it. I can ensure you that It's on my list of things to fixed / update so it'll be working very soon(tm)

  11. Community Feedback!

    This is something we can definitely outsource to our community managers and our community. If people are willing to put the time into events then we'll happily promote them as much as we can to help get them popular. Events are very hard for Myself and @Nick to do because we have time consuming lives. I'll talk to nick about them though and see what I hear back.
  12. Community Feedback!

    We're using a theme, it's not perfect and it very clearly needs work and if I had more time then cleaning up / making a new theme would be one of the things on the list to do. unfortunately the servers, new systems and everything else is higher priority. The theme / forum is something I definitely want to take a long look at. @Nick took them down because we weren't getting enough traction on them and they where being a pain in the ass to keep running, updated and working. From what I know this is one of the things we will be looking into starting up again.
  13. Community Feedback!

    Hello Everyone, Myself and @Nick have taken some time to work on a quick Feedback form for the community. For a while now we've been running blind and only slightly guided from what we can see going on in the community. We're hoping that we can start finding out what our community wants and what direction our community would like to see us heading in. We're also interested in any and all feedback you may have on our mods, on our site, and even on the EU servers ( yeah, they are still a thing :P ). We would be very grateful if you could take 5 minutes to have a look through our Feedback Form and fill it out as honestly as you can. We will hopefully be using the results from this Form to guide us in where our priorities lay and where we should be expanding our community to. Hope all that made sense, Heres a link to the Feedback Form: https://goo.gl/forms/KJm0XECLLi3nSglE2 Thank you for your continued support, Precision Gaming
