You thinking of my old program that I used to play a wave file when it detected an admin logging in? Way back in my bot days.

i am desperately not trying to be negative but that is the reality of the situation as i see it... i actually agree with dellam.

expecting individual members within the community to download/install/run programs that notify them when a game gets out so they can hurry up and join before it restarts? that's a real idea? that's a reasonable solution?

if that's where we are as a community we might as well just broadcast on the server "dear war2.ru, server is dead.. thanks for playing... go find a new game to play now"

So why be negative about a solution to keep that player from joining a match to play the game? If you disagree with my decision you can post here.

Not a solution, but a workaround to a problem we can't just wave a magic wand and fix. We've been over and over this -- we need dedicated programming for bug fixes & improvements, we need advertising, we need people who can dedicate time to hand-holding newbs & community involvement. What we have is volunteers contributing as much time & money as they can to these things but it's not enough to ever "revive" the game. We'd need a pretty substantial budget for that, which we don't have.

- What ever happened to the crowdfunding idea? It was good, it had a lot of energy, it never seemed to really get off the ground though?
- Yamon's idea is good -- to find some semi-famous YT person with war2 nostalgia and ask them to give the game a shoutout to their millions of subscribers. But first we've got to find them, and then we've got to get their attention. How many messages do you get per day when you have twelve million subscribers..? Still pondering
- I'm also pretty responsive lately to implementing any suggestions you or anyone can come up with - ad banners, icons, improving the site, or w/e
- I still plan to do the war2 business cards! :)

Problem is that the current admin don't want it to grow
. If it grows to 10,000 plus people then the will lose their jobs . That's why they constantly hinder any growth in the server
I tried years ago to build it but I couldn't understand why the admin wouldn't want it bigger .
It took me a while before I realised that I was simply wasting my time, as others after me did, as you did and as people after you will aswell.
Until u get a team of admin in who want the server to grow then your simply wasting your time

It was similar to that.  It played wav files yeah im pretty sure, maybe it's the same, although i thought it was an actual install of war2 that had this, maybe not though... was years ago.  I think it could play the wave file also on watched users

Dellam/TK, yes it would be easier to just have another 10k people playing this game but that is simply offering an answer without any solution.

That is like saying, tell everyone to stop smoking and lung cancer will drop 95%. Well, no shit, but HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Please do not criticize unless you have some sort of constructive answer yourselves.

Otherwise, if this is what the game has come to, then we do the best we can with it, instead of making it worse.

Also, there are a lot of times there are multiple games up, but I want to join a specific one.
