Hello
« on: May 29, 2014, 11:17:31 PM »
Hello. I've been lurking on these forums for about 3 years now and finally decided to make an account. I've been playing on the IFOC servers during that time under the name ZorchKiwi, though as of now I'm changing it to Nisk for consistency with every other game I play.

I remember playing Chex Quest as a kid, though I don't remember actually getting it in a cereal box. It was quite a while before I realized there was more than one level, so I guess E1M1 was just so good that it could keep me entertained for days. When I looked it up a few years ago and discovered Chex Quest 3 (and 2), I was pumped.

I'm pretty much always willing to play a few rounds of multiplayer, regardless of whatever work I should be doing. In fact, I even wrote a stupid little Java app that would query the number of players on the Chex Quest servers each minute and alert me whenever someone joined. It saw some good use, but I think it would be simpler to specifically arrange to meet on the servers, which I will do in the future. My Steam username is also Nisk; please feel free to add me as a friend.

I'm looking forward to joining this community for real.

Hallo! Have you tried my Capture Point maps? I finally got them stable enough to host a 24/7 server, courtesy of 75 :D


I would love to play with you online anytime. Actually, can I have a copy of that app? :P

Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

I have tried out the Capture Point maps, I'll leave some feedback about them over in the discussion thread shortly.

About the app, I haven't used it for some time but it seems to still work. I've attached the jar file to this post. If you have Java installed you should just be able to double-click it from anywhere to start it. It checks 75's Duel, Zorchmatch, and CTF servers and gives you the number of players and ping. The Suspend button pauses it until you press Resume, and the Launch option becomes available whenever someone is on a server and starts Zandronum with the necessary files loaded and connects you. A message pops up whenever someone joins which, if I remember correctly, also has the option to launch the game.

Unfortunately it doesn't check the new Capture Point Alpha server. I could try to find the source code and update it if there's demand. I would also consider trying to contribute a similar feature to Doomseeker if I could figure out how Bitbucket and open source development in general work.

I think I might have actually played you once already, a long time ago. Some names here seem familiar from games I played years ago (as ZorchKiwi).
