    i read a post in weed forum about getting new players and i found a way of getting them


    many old timers of inf dont have a clue that theires still people playing inf, dtas, tdm with new weapons.


    i was thinkin we could post screenshots regulary of the games

    but i have no idea which websites our target visit
    :eek:

    or maybe emailing for the old timers
    get a chain of mails

    Maybe remove the bad news on the Infiltration home page and put some better news, perhaps a community update/status or what ever. Anything that shows something is going on.

    Usually, when I get to a page and read "bad news, the project is dead", I go away.

    thats a good idea. make the news of the site a open thing like wikipedia where people can post some screenshots of last day match/ practice

    and tell a story of the match/ anectode

    I do agree that the game looks pretty dead when you just check on it once in a while, so I bet for newcomers it's even worse.

    Maybe not open news. community news are there for that. But something else than "Bad News" as headline.

    i was thinking about something updated regulary that show some screens of random playing, to display the fun of online gaming and its spirit


    if its just 1 news , thats pointless.


    it could be outside of inf website in addition

    Here is a ton of work idea.

    1) we, with the permission of sentry studios, realease a comunity version of the game.
    We can start by intergragting the many mutator patches strain into the game.
    2) And with the assorted mutators, with permission, we can included then all in one UMOD. With the base game install.
    3) Release it on a well traficed sight, and hope people are sill interested in such an old engine.

    I can tell you, with certainty, that the answer to all of your suggestions will be 'no'.

    That's basically it in a nutshell. Essentially for all intents and puproses the Mod is somewhat dead...

    This all reminds me of the talk prior to 2.9. I think it's about time Zeep does another song. :p

    Well... with all that EAS, "gimme the CD!" is getting a little old. You'd better find something else.

    Another idea. Many of us for sure play in another games and visit other forums. We may post on other forums and invite ppl to play Inf. For example i can post on best (and bigest) polish unreal forum and invite people to try play Inf. Many of them still remember how to play...

    sry for english

    Maybe SS development is dead, but INF2.9 and its players are not...

    It's like for the classic UT, project is dead but did you browse the UT servers recently ? tons of :)

    Edit: And that's what SS should see, "Bad News" is a SS development news, not an INF2.9 news...INF2.9 is a piece of art, the best Mod, total conversion i ever seen for UT. So maybe they should separate INF2.9 and "SS future projects" on this website.

    Edit: Can you set some metatags keywords ? So googlers could find it with few keyword like: army, realism ,etc..

    Hi Lemon,

    When I saw you on the server, we were playing an H.P. Lovecraft map (Dunwich, I believe). When the next map came up, I got booted. I don't know if it was a file mismatch, or something else? :(

    Hi Smeerkat,
    You should post in the proper forum...
    General Protection Fault ? A box that says Inf crashed ?
    Retry if it does each time and note what it says, maybe it's a known problem, else i couldn't help :)
