View Full Version : Making room for members.

Maybe an idea to add all the players names to the list, saves Ninja from having to sort this out in game so you can just play m8. And it will free up the comm's etc Just an idea.

VIP players, reserved slots, and the join queue
Older versions of the BFBC2 PC servers had a system where slots could be reserved permanently. This has been abandoned in favor of a kick-on-demand system (similar to that of BFBC2). In addition, there is a join queue.
Defining VIP players
The server has an internal list of VIP players. Upon startup, the server reads it from a file named reservedslotslist.txt. The list of VIP players can also be edited on-the-fly through the use of the reservedSlots.* commands.
When a non-VIP player joins a server…
If there are slots left, the player will be able to join directly.
Otherwise, the player is placed in a join queue. (“You are person 3 out of 3 in the queue for this server.”)
When a VIP player joins a server…
If there are slots left, the player will be able to join directly – just like a non-VIP player.
If there are no slots left, the server will randomly choose a non-VIP player, and kick him/her to make room for the VIP player.
If the server happens to be full of other VIP players, then the VIP player will be placed in a join queue.

Hi Naldo,

This is something that we are looking at within Wolfcon. Ideally I'd like to use a clan tag so that all dMw members are included without the need to put in individual names and / or maintain the list.

indeed that would be ideal

Further to this thread, I've put in "dMw." in the VIP clan tag list in the new version of WolfCon. Hopefully we'll be able to try it out tonight.

Be good to have your feedback tomorrow.
