DAMN v0.3

With the release of DAMN Competition MOD v0.3 we have also opened up a website: www.damnmod.com and an IRC channel: #DAMN. The website should help with distributing the mod and will be a resource of general information about the mod. Questions about installation and maintenance can be asked in the IRC channel.

Attention: DAMN was built specifically for SD but some features such as Ready Up and Strat Time do work for other gametypes. However these gametypes have not been extensively tested and thus there could still be some bugs. If your server crashes while playing one of these gametypes please contact us with the exact conditions under which the crash happened and we will try to fix it

New Features

* Mod is now be completely serverside (if correctly installed). See the Installation section for details.
* Added cvar "dam_playout" that controls if a scrim is played out or not
* Added cvar "dam_auto_ot" that automatically switches to the correct overtime mode if the map ends in a tie
* Added cvar "dam_disable_fog" that sets r_fog 0 for clients on connect
* Added cvar "dam_disable_mgs" that disables mgs on a map
* Added European Rulesets
* Added Pub / Scrim Modes for every ruleset (pub mode disables ready up, scrim mode enables playing out) Example:
o dam_mode cevo (cevo match mode)
o dam_mode cevo_ot (cevo ot mode)
o dam_mode cevo_pub (cevo pub mode)
o dam_mode cevo_scrim (cevo scrim more)
* All Match modes enable auto overtime allowing overtime transitions to be much smoother
* Added color to ready up and strat time text to make them more visible
* Added ability to modify weapondamage in the rulesets by changing weapon specific CVARs
* Added comp_sab and comp_dom modes at the request of competetive sabotage and domination players

For all CVARs / modes available in the mod please consult the Administration section.

Fixes
* Some servers have problems with serverside only mods, therefore a client-side mod has also been released so that these servers can be updated to the latest version
* Class limits are now correctly enforced.
* You will now have to choose your class again after readying up, however it does save the changes you made to the class (choosing different weapons / perks / etc) . This is to fix a bug with the class limits.
* Moved the Mode display on the HUD down a little so that it isn't overlapped by the fps display



As always if you find any bugs we don't know about please let us know right away.


INSTALLATION

In DAMN v0.3 we have switched the mod to server side only.

Right now there is a problem with server side mods and some server providers. The problem is that when the player tries downloading the mod.ff file off the server the download will get stuck in a loop and never let the player connect. If your server has this problem, please go to the Client-side Installation page to download and learn how to temporarily install the clientside version of the mod. Also please contact us with your server providers info so that we can sort out the problem with them.

**UPDATE** NFO servers should now be fully working with DAMNv0.3 and should no longer loop the mod.ff download. Thanks to nick from NFO for the speedy response time and for finding a fix for the issue.
Step 1: Unpacking the Mod

* Extract the contents of the DAMNv0.3.rar file to its own folder
* The DAMN folder should contain the following file(s):
z_svr_modwarfare.iwd
default_server.cfg
mod.ff
mod.csv
* The PB folder should contain the following file(s):
pbsv.cfg
* The following file(s) should also be in the .rar file:
server.cfg
readme.txt
* Modify the server config included in the folder to your own server settings (password, rcon, etc.)
* The included pbsv.cfg is the PunkBuster config for the CEVO Tournament. If you wish to use it, replace your current pbsv.cfg with the one included

Step 2: Setting up files

* Move the DAMN folder into your servers /mods folder
* If you wish to use the server config included, move the server.cfg (that you modded with your information) to your /main folder
* If you wish to use the PunkBuster config included, move the pbsv.cfg to your /pb folder

Step 3: Setting up the server

* Add the following to your servers command line: +set fs_game "mods/DAMN"
* If you do not have access to your servers command line please contact your server provider and ask them to do it for you.


**WARNING**
In previous versions of the mod it was possible to just rewrite the z_modwarfare.iwd in your mods/modwarfare folder to make it work. However if you try this with this mod. clients connecting to your server will have issues with invalid .iwd file references if they have other files in their mods/modwarfare folder. Therefore we strongly recommend that you follow the steps above to correctly set up your server.
