Well what do you think of it ?

(alfa : no bot support, just to show where you're going with the map you're working on)

I think thats what screenshots and previews are all about /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif . You can also think of it like this- screenshots help to expose people to your level and only serve to increase interest; but if you release it w/o bot support then they are not experiencing the full flavor of the level and may not download it when its alpha, which doesnt help the author at all. So I say stick with screen and previews.

As co-editor of the map, i'll stick with... coffycan.

People dowload maps to play, not to look at.

I'll try to add some botpaths and assault objectives as soon as possible... then maybe we should release the alfa... but I promise that we'll take some screenshots this weekend.

Sylvester out...

It's Alpha, not alfa.

Yes, you're right Disturbed, it should be alpha. The reason why I wrote alfa instead of alpha is 'cause in Dutch ph is abbreviated to f most of the times (modern spelling as they call it here). Sylvester is from Belgium too /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
