How do you make a server run on 1.30 ?
I know this question may well cause some hilarity, but meh!
184.108.40.206:27960 will be up for another year, after which I'll probably struggle to justify the cost to the good lady (wife that is), and I'd like to switch it to 1.30.
I suppose I could ask the provider to do it, but frankly experience has told me that that's a ridiculous ask unless I actually talk them through it.
This is NOT spam and I'm NOT requesting any special favours like a join (I don't do clans after being booted out of one for dissing the admin, time it was I can tell you!! ), but if anyone could help a lowly idiot in his time of need then at least there would be another server you could go onto after Spazy's server demise (c16:00 GMT 14/01 R.I.P.). Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm just giving something to a community (all Q3A IU players) for all the fun they've given me over the last 8 years and seeing Nasty clan is probably the most active I thought I'd ask here.
/Steps off egg-shells and hopes request will be taken genuinely

Oooh oooh, just read your message properly - tell me more,or alt just send me the q3infoboom patch if you have it - however, once again it'll be linux they'll be wanting. My thoughts - luigi.eliott-ness.com/patches.htm#quake3 somewhere...but never heard of the bug until i saw the comments on Spazy's server topic.

I can't read AF's comments, and I don't normally click on stuff that I don't know what it is...so if the answer is there my apologies....
Anyway, that is weird. Spazy can get onto it - but I can't. Hmmm.
Anywho nope, it ain't crashing out the server - it just chucks me out. It appears to do a load up as normal then I see my model splatted all over the screen (which is odd) and there is a message in the TLS corner saying 'execing Q3CONFIG.CFG' and then it's back to Q3 Menu.
I tried renaming the insta folder on my drive to force it to load up clean (incl my config natch) and it still did the same thing. Then I tried deleting my q3config from both baseq3 and IU1.2B3 to force it use a vanilla one - still no joy, but it did at least say this time that it 'couldn't exec q3config.cfg' and then died.
Now,I can connect to other servers on 1.30 IU1.2B3 fine, but mine. So Spazy's being able to get on has me head scratching. Any thoughts ?

All sorted ! Config issue - weirdly the same config that worked on 1.32 didn't work on 1.30 And what was it ? sv_pure 0 from 1 on the server.cfg, that's what. Anyway, it's up and working. There's a rotation of vanilla maps - not all. You'll find plenty of custom maps if you wish to callvote 'em at any point (all the one's that were running before and some of the expanded maps). I was thinking of knocking 17 off and putting 17+ on as it tends to be less spawnfraggy and putting 6+ and 16+ on instead of their respective vanillas - but that's for the future. Cheers!

Don't know what all that from ASF is above, suspect I must have left myself logged in when I left and been hijacked, apologies.
Anyway, onto my question - what's the purpose of 'Message of the day' in IU config - and Can/How do I use it ?
Alternatively, how do you put a regular broadcast out - actually, I'm trying to avoid it as I find it annoying and hope MOTD will do it for me, but say I had a website with server info i.e. maintenance times, acceptable rules of play, future map rotations (which paradoxically, I currently don't have) how do I let people on the server know about it ?

I was on one of Rudy's servers recently and after the map loaded, messages popped up for about a minute into gameplay. I'd love to know how. They might have been from an admin watching the server. I'll try it again.
