View Full Version : Role playing game type

Some people have made the argument that "it says FFA on the game type list”, well there is a simple solution to solve that problem create a role-playing game type so no one could complain. In this role playing game type it would be just like FFA but without the obvious "kill everyone" signs. This would enable FFAers to stay away from RP servers and would give them no excuse to come into an RP server and start shooting people. Of course I am not sure if FFA maps would run if the game type said Role Playing can someone tell me if they would or would not?

Sure, it's possible. All you'd really be done is creating a new gametype that acts similar to FFA, just with different menu signage. The biggie would be putting in the effort to make something like that happen.

I think the time has come to just remove the gametype rules code-side and let each server admin declare his own rules via MOTD or a new cvar made just for this purpose. The bickering based on that "defeat your opponents to score points" message has got to die....

Me? Yes I am completely serious. Who needs them? We know how to play the game!Just let server admins specify their own "rules" or none or "Kill em all!!" if that's what they want.
