  • Zounds !!!!

    FFS Get rid of it - And all the STUPID IG Gun mods for that matter.

    This community is so fragmented its "unreal".

    IG may not be everyone's taste, but I sooo wish I could just find some UK/Euro servers with vanilla setups. Just Instgib with normal maps like Deck.

    All I seem to find these days is weird IG mods with ZOUNDS (arrggggghhhhhh!!!!).

    Even NW servers seem modded to death. Every game type apart from ONS seems foreign to me !! Dont get me wrong, I can hold my own in most gametypes, even when there modded with so much crap they become a different game entirely. I just want NORMAL though !!

    Infact Im so sick of it im starting to love CS:Source. It just feels...normal.

    I just want it the way Epic wanted it. Maybe im becoming boring in my old age.

    Please !!!!

    You can turn zounds off by typing zound off or something like that .... and does it matter THAT much :weird: I never liked it but also never hated it.

        True, you can - I think im really trying to express how unpure UT2004 seems to me at the moment.

        I play UT1 at work every lunch time, just IG or Sniper Arena CTF. We use a rotation of the great UT1 CTF maps. It's great. It feels like it should. Were even having an Inter Dept. war day on Christmas Eve (16 of us).

        UT2004; as much as I want to play it, is starting to feel weird, and not the game I used to love.

            christmas eve 2002 was the last time i ever played ut99.
            sniper only ctf/tdm on custom maps...

            the best game experience i ever had, priceless.

            i would give anything to go back to that day


            will there ever be a multiplayer game to take the place of the magical ut99? because although ut2004 is a solid game, it doesnt reward me like ut99 used to.

                  Morba,

                  I wish I didnt have to, TBH the only selection of UK/Euro IG pubs I get these days are servers with Zounds and all kinds of mods/muts enabled.

                  I am no longer fortunate enough to have much private server access - being clanless does that !!

                  Guess its time to find another clan.

                  If you have any good IG server suggestions I am open to all, your in the UK aswell so should have a good few in your FAVS

                  Cheers.

                    p0rny^, I feel exactly as you do. These days european instagibs servers are either empty or full of zounds, different beam, extra suppa duppa speed, speciall 1337 translocator, you name it. It's not enough the problems that this game gives to some of us, the lack of local servers (in my case there's only one iCTF server where I ping around 30, all other are outside my country with pings over 80) and now we have to put up with shitty variations of the game.
                    I can handle new maps as it gets boring playing the same all... hmmm... 3 maps that everyone plays. However, the rest is lame. Maybe our fellow american dudes have a lot of choices to play, here there aren't many
                    Btw p0rny^, isn't that M17 server one of yours?

                      Thanks Abilio Nice to have some support.
                      Im no longer MI7. Although I still nick as MI7 on IRC. I did see the MI7 server a few days ago and it was vanilla and war ready. I havnt seen it since.

                      Im on IRC now trying to talk to ^00^ but he is either ignoring me, IRC has gone into ignore mode or he is just BNC. Its annoying being clanless. I lose privelages. I was on a few servers today (Stupid Zounds, green IG) and totally owned.

                      Time to find a new clan with regular IG in mind. There must be a few :alien:

                      PS. Wouldnt be so bad but I dont get that 1337 Trans

                          I loathe zounds.

                          I used to get a kick out of it but it's just plain annoying and stupid now. And, I always seem to get a momentary stutter when someone initiates one. So, not only do I get to hear Homer Simpson scream in my ear, but I also get killed due to a stupid hitch.

                          I'm considering binding mutate zound off.

                          I wish there was aclientside option to have it always off instead of having to turn it off every game.

                            Amen 2.

                            Zounds is ok but only in moderation. Sometimes if you take it lightly and it can be funny.

                            The worst thing is if someone abuses it eg by ramdomly spammming a zound every so often in a match.

                            Another thing i despise is when someone uses it as smacktalk.
                            For example: in one clan that we used to have wars with, one person would always do a zound "peek-a-boo" everytime he killed me (at least) from behind or a a distance..now that was annoying.
                            Don't call me serious or anything but IMO that's no better than if i got a "bs" when i killed him (N.b. he didn't say/never said that at least).

                              Glad to see I'm not alone in hating that mutator. I specifically avoid any server with it on, because people spam those godawful sounds constantly, making the idea of listening to the game cause me to cringe in pain. Thankfully, most AS servers don't have it. If they did, I think I'd go back to playing DOOM2 online or something.
                              Note also that most servers don't seem to run the latest version which allows disabling it, so you're stuck with it.
