Actually, we were trying to get the Master Server working not too long ago. I'm not sure if anyone figured it out yet. From my knowledge it works, but doesn't work. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc4.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> If that makes sense. But from my knowledge it hasn't be tried for awhile, so I may have out-of-date information.

Anyone can host their own servers, I'll put some documentation on that on the forums and the wiki later today <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc9.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->. As for an official server, we are still evaluating options as of now.

Yeah, fighting AI controlled bots with no personalities is getting old fast. <!-- sorcblackeye --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orcblackeye.gif" alt="orcblackeye" title="orcblackeye" /><!-- sorcblackeye -->

Have you ever played Q3A or UT deathmatch online? I found it often less fun than playing with bots locally.

It depends on how many players, which map, etc. IMO, but sometimes is not a fun as one expects, yes.

Making your own server tends to be a bit...ehhh... well, a bit of a nuisance and it's hard to find a game that's already been started. I have a question about if you make a master server. I don't have much experience when it comes to internet programing(although I'm pretty damn good with DOS). What would the basic appearance of it be like? Would it be a chat room, or just a hub(hah) where all of the internet connection would be linked and flipped with one another?

It's mainly a broadcasting feature, it would just announce which games are actually being run, nothing else <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc2.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->.

I figured it was. Right now the connection is alot like origional Hexen, Hexen II, Doom, Doom 2 (ect.). Complicated, but only fairly limited(depending on how well you know ip and what not). I look forward to a main server, but I hope it doesn't cost a fortune, and you end up having to add mass adverts to the site. That'd make me a sad Cleric. <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/orc10.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( -->
