  1. Trying to connect with EU1 is having a problem with @ShackTac_User_Interface, I'm all up to date according to A3S. Did the key change on the server?
  2. I think the key is an amalgamation of what everyone's said. I don't think necessarily a 30GB modset is a bad thing, at least not for people who are already playing, but for newcomers, very few people are going to jump into the joining process for AWE and a 30GB download on the back of a few written tutorials and a couple of billboards, it's too much of an investment for an unknown. So on that, yes a more space efficient modset would be beneficial, however I think having to download any modset is a significant gate to push through in and of itself. Personally, I would focus mostly on making the joining process as easy as possible, it's not a case of if you build it, they will come. It's never going to be a one click process bit simplifying it where you can is a must. Understanding it's a bit of an undertaking, some regular induction sessions might be an idea. Unfortunately I don't think that whatever happens with the modset, without a bit of handholding for new members, at least until the server is self sustained, we're probably going to end up right back here.
  3. So I'll throw in my opinion in after the horse has bolted as per usual and say, I don't think there's ever been a problem with AWE content, at least not to the extent that would cause having to put the server on a hiatus and go through this rigmarole. I think the issue has never been the mods, but the perceived accessibility. The vast majority of the AhoyWorld member intake is through the EU1 I&A server, that being a public server with quite an easy game flow (get in helicopter, get out, shoot stuff, rinse & repeat), quite a lot of the players that come through are new players (possibly also new to the genre) and don't really understand all that's going on. It's really easy as someone involved in AWE (not talking about myself here btw) to see how it works, but it needs to be looked at from the perspective of someone who doesn't. This was why way back when, the server was re-branded to AWE away from EU3 which gave an outsider zero information on it whatsoever. Getting people through the door to it was a massive issue, take a look at the AWE playerbase and you'll see what I mean, almost all the players were people who'd been playing for a long time, new people just weren't coming through the door. It's only natural that those players would gradually decrease over time, which lead us to the point we're at right now. Lone start making a tutorial series which would've helped get people through the door, but that didn't get completed. Outside that and a few basic written tutorials, to an outsider, the unknown of it can be intimidating. Now speaking exclusively for myself, even at the time I led the site I didn't get involved in it all that much, because so much of it was still unknown. I joined in with the gamenights as a team member, as I could easily follow the flow and just follow what everyone else was doing. Wouldn't have had a hope in normal play though where everyone does their own bit of leadership and responsibility to complete the objective.
  4. Fixed the issue, it was going up in linear with the animated gif TS banner we have. As soon as it completed it's first loop the memory usage plateaus. I am miffed why it would be using so much though, the image itself is only about 4mb so why it's using 900mb has me stumped. Anyway we've removed it until we can figure that out.

  6. Posting this here as a guide as it's something I just figured out how to do and I found no hard and fast answer on how it's done, I kept running into threads on other forums years out of date talking about registry edits then finding it didn't work anymore and messing around with mic mute/unmute programs but nothing was working for me. If you're like me and you use a mouse button for push to talk on TeamSpeak (I use Button 4) you've probably run into problems when trying to bind the same key in both OBS and ShadowPlay and numerous other programs. Step 1 (may not apply). With my mouse (razer mamba) button 4 is the default back button on browsers so I needed to disable it, to do this I use a program called X-Mouse Button Control. After installing simply set whatever buttons on your mouse you don't want to function to "disable" (see spoiler). That doesn't disable the button but it'll stop doing what you don't want it to do. It is possible to do simulated keys with this program but I've found it a little buggy. Step 2. Down a program called AutoHotKey, it's a little program where you can set macros to any button on your computer. After it's installed, right click on your desktop, go to "New" and then "AutoHotkey Script" and name it whatever you like. My script is below, quite simply XButton1 is Mouse Button 4 and F13 is the F13 key. I don't have an F13 key and you probably don't either but it still exists and all the way up to F24. Here is a list of all the keys you can use. XButton1::F13 Save your script, right click and run it to see if it works, then right click again and click compile if it does. It should create a new icon on your desktop that looks slightly different, just double click to run it. I recommend to set it to run on startup if it works well for you. Step 3. Now go to your program of choice and press that mouse button to have it bound. Hope this guide helps you in some way!
  7. No no, just raw clips from like shadowplay and stuff. The video editors will take them and edit them together, nothing to stop one person doing both though. Just edited the original post to reflect this.
  8. Sure. We're always looking for video contributions so if you have anything now feel free to apply and send it our way, we don't have any quotas on either role.
  9. Mostly hammering Ctrl + F5. I know how I could fix it for sure but that could very likely break a multitude of other things so I'd rather not go down that route. I've been in contact with IPS support to see if there's another option.
