Post subject:  banners or msgs. ?

Is there a way to run banners like in etpro or the way its done in etpub? Our server is pretty much full most the time and would like to be able to scroll recruitment info when I'm sleeping. This is by far the most stable mod we run on et and IMHO the funnest mod and our server numbers show it. Thanks in advance for any help?

Banner's are a really great bit of kit no doubt, although I am not 100% sure if TC:E support's them? You may want to email the dev team direct for that answer.

You can however use the PunkBuster messaging system with basic Q3 colour's to display the same messages.

Inside your pbsv.cfg

PB_SV_Task [X] [Y] [command]
Adds a task to PB's Task List; The Task will be executed X seconds after entry and every Y seconds thereafter.

pb_sv_task 5 300 pb_sv_say welcome to [myclan] TCE server
pb_sv_task 10 305 pb_sv_say [myclan] are recruiting
pb_sv_task 15 310 pb_sv_say have fun be cool!

(this is not only restricted to server messaging)

I keep trying to startup a small server for testing maps, somehow ET and TC:E won't let me, but with ETF and FalckonET, it works.

Thanks I'll give that a go. Better than nothing and sounds like it will work nice. Much Thanks

I just set up etadmin with TCE and works great. The biggest problem I had was changing everything from qsay to say and the killing spree notification is a cool little bonus. Just thought I'd let it be known that etadmin mod works with TCE.
