Does this work in TF2? Like where you can play a custom sound when someone is dominating someone else?

Sure - I might need to modify the script a bit, but yes, it should work. Do we want it on the server?

I thought it was really cool. Especially if you could make it totally random for the totally random people.

To be fair, I should raise two possible problems:

1) Requires us to get metamod installed, and then some kind of eventscripts installed on top of that. So far as I know, eventscripts doesn't work on TF2, and metamod isn't stable either.

2) Requires extra downloads - people are put off by having to download extra files on connecting to the server.

Now if we're OK with these, I'd love to have the P+S mod on - it was great in CSS. For the moment, however, I'm enjoying how much our server is filling up and am loathe to change anything that we don't have to.

Strong - good points. One minor detail - metamod won't be necessary. Actually, I was running eventscripts w/o metamod for the last year or so on the CSS server. The times that I put it on the server had crash issues, so I ran it without.

As for the extra downloads, praise and scorn will require some rework because the downloads were dependent on mani. I can probably configure it so that if you download the sound pack seperatly, you will hear the sounds and get the messages, otherwise, you will only get the on screen messages. This will eliminate the issues with downloads. That might be the best alternative. Thoughts?

Quality not quantity my friend. I don't have the verbal diarrhea :outhouse: that you do, so I'm always bound to have less, er, output. Anyway, MacK, that sounds pretty good. We should think about putting together a file pack or something for the server, and having some custom domination sounds etc might be good for that.

Good Call on the download turning people away. We Should wait until we have a good core group then slowly work them in.
