    Yep. It's real, boys. I finally decided to get Gizmo (my dad) to set me up with an account on the server so that I can do this.

    We now officially have our own Unreal Tournament 1999 server.


    Required setting changes:
    Under [Network]: Change "Internet Connection" to "Cable, xDSL."
    Otherwise you'll be limited to ~40 FPS.​
    Under [Video]: Change "Font Size" to "Normal."
    Although on higher resolution screens (cough cough 1080p) the text becomes difficult to read, without this change the map vote menu won't fit on the screen.​

    Important Information:
    Ultimate Map Vote v2:
    Sweet UI for changing maps at the end of a round. Top four and bottom-left two are default game modes. bottom right is InstaGib Last Man Standing (hence ILMS).
    If you want to call a map vote or vote kick, open the console (~ by default) and enter "mutate bdbmapvote votemenu". You can then make whatever vote you want from there.
    If you're in the vote menu, going to the [Info/Bind] tab will allow you to set a keybind for bringing up the menu (there's an empty field at the bottom).​
    Server is 24/7. Hop on whenever you like; map resets to default rotation after a period of inactivity.
    Server does not have any bots by default. If enough support is shown for adding bots, then I'll change it.
    NewNet: Fixes a bunch of issues with UT and how it handles networking, which leads to a generally better experience.​

    Now that that's out of the way, the server's in the list as "[PURE] Official GoL UT99 Server." You can also connect to it directly as `gamersonlinux.com`.

    Happy fragging!

    Dad? Gizmo is your Dad? That is awesome!

    So I have to get a copy of Unreal 99 and join in.

    Knowing me, I'll probably run it in PlayOnLinux instead of native.

    I'll have to find my CD ROM and re-install.

    Aye, I connect using GOTY just fine. Near as I can tell the only difference between '99 and GOTY is that the latter has more maps (which I can add to the server and then anyone without GOTY will just download them when they connect).
