For ye with an Iron Grip, two servers have been prepared for use with the six competition maps submitted for the recent contest. These servers, both European-based at the moment, rotate through the maps Deportation, Dreadnought, Durus, Enmity, Karthos and Lucid. We’re working on getting a US server online as soon as possible. While these maps are not complete, they’re all playable, and a lot of fun for a change of pace. Please play on these servers and give feedback in the Mapping Competition forum! With some polishing, some of these maps will probably become official Iron Grip maps in the near future. Remember to download and install the maps first – some, like Lucid, are very big and will download very slowly from the server.

Next, the Joe vs. Pro tournament is taking shape behind the scenes here at Isotx. While we planned to get it started this past weekend, unforeseen setbacks forced us to delay a week. To paraphrase the old saying, “Life Happens”. However, to find more information on the tournament, you can visit our page about it HERE!! We look forward to seeing you on the battlefields soon!
Oh, right, eye candy? Well, I suppose I can release a few more screenshots of AwesomePossum’s upcoming map Silberstad… Enjoy!

Hmmm, Do you have a server file other then that of a linux distribution? I could always host a server. I now really need to build a second computer.

I'm just saying what i think about a game, get over it.. There's no need of "Growing Up" it's called giving criticism if you can't take it, shut up.

edit: sorry, not fmod, i was thinking of smod. Which is overhyped and boring. Fmod eh? I will check it out. But seriously, show respect, his mod is fun. I can only imagine when your mod comes out, and if its boring, then I am gonna remember this (taking screenshot).

Hey Fmod, if you have ACTUAL criticisms, we're always listening to feedback and try to accommodate what the fans think needs to be done every time we patch. However, "this mod sucks" doesn't really help us out much.

to just inform you guys, most multiplayer mods are repetitive. All they are is the same thing over and over again anyway.

Here is the things I suggest you guys fix.

AI for enemy: These guys will walk right past me until I shoot them, but they will not stop to start shooting at me, but rather completely ignore me and keep moving.

Firing Rate on guns: The handguns can shoot REALLY fast, and almost act like a assault weapon. The thing is, the bulletes do not count for the extra "firing" that is done.

If you need a video for me to explain, I will try to make one.
