ThunderVote 2.2 with Source Code Released
New ThunderVote release with a few additional changes made by Elmar Hoffman:
Wow! This page hasn't been updated since last year (*cough*)! I'm sorry I haven't had any time to make updates to the code too. I think this is such an AWESOME mod for QW (ok, how lame is it to have the author pimp his own mod like this?), and I guarantee ALL server admins who had the guts to set up and run ThunderVote on their servers were more than satisfied. Here's a rewarding email I got from Jacob George some time ago:
Dude, that email alone sure meant a lot to me, it made the whole effort of making this mod well worth it. :) Ok, before I start getting emotional, the source code's available due to a few request from server admins, check the files section. Enjoy!
I've prepared a brief tutorial on entity editing for those having trouble making a map into a ThunderVote voting map. Check it out.
There have been some complaints regarding the standard ThunderVote .ent files, due to errors some versions of qbsp report with them (something about motd_stuff having values that are too big). The version I'm using works fine but runs only under Win32. Get it here.
Please contact me if you have newer versions of QBSP for linux or DOS that can successfully compile these .ent files.
Check details on new features in the Docs section.
Support for Clan Arena, Final Arena, Threewave CTF, Expert CTF and ThunderWalker CTF
Download modified qwprogs.dat for these mods in the Files section. They offer a simple added feature that allows them to be used with ThunderVote: the "exec_cfg" serverinfo key. Use it in the STANDARD.CFG to specify what script the mod should exec instead of changing levels. Check out the Docs for more info.
