    I regrettably haven't played enough like I promised.

    But I am seeing the server pop and it has barely broken past 25 players.

    If admins are going to ban people during low pop hours, the server will die.
    It is just easier to remove an exploit map than police it.

    Anything that has loads of glaring problems shouldn't be in a regular map rotation.

    thats two edged, if you dont handle shitheads (banning is only one of many options) youll end up with equally dead servers.

    especially not if the creator is as easy to contact as me - and even less if hes less lazy then i am ^^

    I said rotation, I never said it cant be nominated.
    People need to play these things so they can be fixed.

    But if a map lets say, makes monitor turn black every few seconds (freaks early version) you take it out and fucking fix that shit.

    I was not aware a empires map could cause a graphic card failures.
    Thanks freak for giving me mini heart attacks.

    It can't ..... but what it can do is stress your card. Most likely your card is dying or over heating . Baby that thing and keep it cool.
    A hole in the map or other issues can make it so your card has to work harder.

    Most gfx cards will auto shut down when they hit a high temp. Try checking your temps when your playing to make sure you aren't cooking your gpu.

    fixed* version and corresponding vmf (yeah i know theres a lot wrong with the map if you look at it in hammer)

    *theres now a hurt that deals 9999 instant damage to everything going ontop of most of the cliff things. and moving the whole map up a few units solved the issue with the invisble wall (theres something wrong with the map going through 0,0,0)

    i cant get myself to keep working on that other map atm - its mainly the time compile takes :\

    If I knew some way to set it up so my computer could help compile it I would, but I don't. Not like my computer does much during the day anyway.
