Website Redesigned

Yes it must be its birthday or something. Completely new layout. Looks modern. No more frames - all css. Enjoy. I have noticed though that IE6 doesn't render the layout correctly though so I've had to put in a few tweaks. Firefox and Opera seem to be fine. Any feedback on how it looks in other browsers would be great.

XConsole 3.2

I've uploaded version 3.2. Player list is fully functional. Added some new commands and changed many of the ini settings formats. When you install this version please backup your old config files in case you need to go back.
12th Jan 2009


I've started working on having a player list on the right side of console (irc style). Double-clicking on a name will start spectating of the player. Admins will be able to kick and ban players using a rightclick menu instead of using dropdown boxes of player names. Screenshots are up in xconsole page. There are also 3 custom messages that can be given to players here which use 'admin say #'.

Also I've added a friendly fire tick box on the server tab. There seems to be a bug in UT whereby you can't set friendly fire scale when changing the map - it must be done afterwards. The only way that I've found to get around this is to auto-login as admin, set the ff scale, and then logout after the map change. Due to another bug in UWindows NotifyAfterLevelChange function I've had to use a timer to do this. This could cause problems - if the server changes map too slow, or the admin's PC doesn't connect fast enough then friendly fire scale won't be set. Also, it means leaving the console open with the server tab showing to do this.

If anyone would like to beta test these functions and give me some feedback that would be great. Contact me and I will send the relevant files. 26th July 2008
