  1. Hi there! @iiManix coined another good idea. From now on, at the end of each month, we will grant the top donator for that month a special forum group called VIP. This group is basically a carbon copy of the regular Donator group so don't worry, we're not giving special priviliges to people with money. It's just a simple thank you to our biggest supporters. ^ Obviously, if you've already got the VIP group you're excluded from the selection for that month so someone else can also get the group. I've already granted two people the group for previous months (one of which is no longer in the system, sorry about that) and any donations that happened this month will count for the next selection at the end of May. Aside from this small forum update I've also got a quick status update for the Deathrun update. I've not been able to work on it too much due to working for college aswell as playing on the servers myself (sorry guys ). But I've been working on fixing the killcam bug (not tested yet but should in theory be fixed) alongside some other minor things. I'll also be reverting the weapon skins to the old Raid ones aswell as adding a bunch of new trails in the update (which will be the main not-so-big big thing) provided by @xoxor4d0xzz and @Mist. Regards, atrX.
  2. Merry Christmas and a happy new year! Due to time constraints and me being generally preoccupied with college and other work lately we won't have a big holiday event this year. What we will however do is grant everyone 2 days of VIP, starting 24/12 at 4PM GMT until 26/12 at 4PM GMT. This will be for both deathrun and surf (since our VIP system isn't tied to a specific server). Additionally, 2x XP will be enabled on deathrun from 28/11 at 10PM GMT until 30/11 at 12AM GMT. I promise to make up for the lack of special events next year (plus we have a mapping contest coming in ~2 weeks).
  3. Let me be the first to make an introduction thread. I go by the name atrX (or AtriX) nowadays but used to be called JR-Imagine and Slaya aswell. My IRL name is Jordy Rymenants, I'm 18 as of the writing of this post and I live in Belgium. Most of you will probably already know me from either my deathrun/zombies maps and the surf mod. I'm into software and web development and am pursuing a career in said industry. A collection of some of my work can be found on my portfolio: http://jordyrymenants.com/ Lately I've been playing mostly CS:GO but once the surf server goes back up you'll probably find me on there at least a few times a week. So yeah, that's me in a nutshell.
  4. Hi there! I need a total of 20 rank icons for the next update. Keep in mind, these will be replacing all of the icons we have right now (every 5 levels you'll get a new icon), so if there's one in the mod you really like, you can suggest that too. This is to save on image assets so we can add more customisation options (and possibly get certain maps working again). Rank icons should be square and at least 128x128. If they do not cover the entire surface of the image, they should have a transparent background. Edit: I've attached all the rank icons from the current mod that weren't from stock 1.2. They're in TGA format, so some software might have problems opening them. ranks.zip
  5. Long story short, I accidentally pushed the scripts for the update to the live server and didn't have a backup of the old ones... Enjoy the early update, lol. Changelog New: Updated map rotation (now 227 maps large!) Updated end round/map songs based on community poll Added item shop where you can rent any VIP item for 1 day (24 hours) with credits earned for: Playing (granted at the end of each round) Kills Finishing the map New customization options for VIPs: Miku character model (thanks to @Rex109) Slash N' Burn knife Rainbow trail Sparkles trail (the old Raid VIP trail) Chicken pet Watermelon gun Added toggleable spectator list (see who is spectating a player) Added "Ghost Run" label when spectating a player in ghost run Added toggleable option to not spectate ghosts Menu overhaul Added "Add To Favorites" button Added "Rules" button Added detailed statistics tracking including different types of kills, traps activated, deaths and time played (only ingame, for now) Server announcement when someone finishes the map with placement order (still no order rule though ) Added DR-specific controls to the multiplayer controls menu Added DR-specific options to the game options and multiplayer options menus Changes: Spectator keyboard looks a bit nicer now Buffed snipers (should be a one-shot kill in the upper body all the time now) Updated some weapons (reduced image count, improved animations, sounds etc.) thanks to @Mist Map rotation will no longer reset upon a server restart Removed player timer on practice run First round will now be displayed as "Practice Round", subsequent rounds will be counted from 1-10 Nightvision will no longer show up on the HUD, but can still be enabled if you have it bound Added back WTF sound when a player presses B42 Going AFK as activator will no longer grant you XP for the automatic trap activation Random first place XP will no longer activate on practice round Removed "Free Run" popup from practice round Removed forced viewhands/playermodels on some maps (let me know if I missed any) Removed delay from teleporter at spawn on mp_dr_blue End rooms on mp_deathrun_easy will now always be active Randomised music selection on mp_dr_imaginary Anyone can now enter the "Brick" secret on mp_deathrun_cookie, even without renaming to "Brick" Nerfed mp_dr_lithium secrets Removed some abusive stuff from several maps Removed some XP fountains from several maps Fixes: Stats will no longer reset if the backend goes down (you'll temporarily be level 1 until it comes back up, at which point you'll get your rank back) Fixed desync between on-screen timer and actual time used for records Time record is no longer shown at end of game when no one has ever finished the map (no more 99999999) Activator is no longer able to damage ghosts XP bar is no longer shown when opening a menu Lots of script error fixes for several maps Lots of fixes for broken end triggers Fixed some maps that weren't giving XP for trap activation Blocked bhop cut on mp_deathrun_scoria Blocked cut on mp_dr_watercity Blocked cut on mp_dr_bananaphone_v2 Block ladder stall cut on mp_deathrun_ruin Blocked no fall damage cut on mp_deathrun_ruin Blocked cut on mp_deathrun_hop Players no longer randomly die from trap activation on the practice round on mp_deathrun_ruin Players in ghost run can now exit the spawn of mp_deathrun_ruin Fixed several SQL injections in the backend (don't ask me why I'm not using prepared statements, even I don't know) If you find any more bugs or issues, please report them here: https://raid-gaming.net/forum/79-bug-reports-feature-requests/
  6. We'll be replacing the end round songs sometime soon and want your input. Post suggestions below in the following format: YouTube link: Time (from-to): End round songs should be ~10 seconds (no longer), endmap can be longer.
  7. Changelog New: Anti lag (essentially kills the no fall damage bind) Anti ele (Caspa has been unable to hit a single ele on the current version ) Added 3 extra viewhands (missing stock CoD4 ones) unlocked at level 4, 12 and 20 respectively VIP Deagle now has camo support Changes: New endround songs Fixes: Fixed the following maps crashing on Mac: mp_deathrun_sm_v2 mp_deathrun_familyguy mp_deathrun_flow mp_deathrun_minecraft mp_deathrun_portal_v3 mp_deathrun_control Special thanks to @Caspa for extensive testing of the anti lag and anti ele.
  8. Hi there! As you might have noticed by the title of the forums and the server renames... Raid Gaming is officially back! @MiKeY recently got in touch with my regarding the possibility of bringing back Raid, we talked about it for a while and well... Here we are. Revolutionary Mods has hereby officially merged into Raid and all the servers have carried over. In this process I have become the main owner of Raid and Mikey has decided to take a step back and become a co-owner with less responsibilities (probably because he can't finish a mod). Some things have changed though. We opted to keep old topics etc to the archive and only import members to our new forum. Raid had a lot of drama going on and we kinda want to leave all of that behind. All the old stuff is still available at https://archive.raid-gaming.net however. Other servers Raid used to have like Promod and Fun/High Jump are coming back aswell, we're just in the progress of getting the mods ready (absolutely no ETAs). Old admins can DM me or @MiKeY to be put on trial for the role of Server Admin again after an internal voting (and thereby skip the application process). We decided against instantly granting everyone their admin status due to some concerns regarding specific (not to be mentioned) old staff members. We do have an internal voting before granting old admins Trial status so it is in no way a guarantee you'll be put back on Trial in the first place (this due to the aforementioned concerns). Regards, @atrX and @MiKeY. Your new Raid overlords.
  9. That title though... First things first, no I'm not going to kill off Raid anytime soon (quite the opposite, actually). As everyone is well aware, our servers, forums and Discord haven't exactly been the most active. As a result, I've been wanting to diversify our community a bit, introduce new games and generalise it a bit more rather than just "we host servers". In this post I'm going to be laying out my current plans. Anyone is free to give feedback and introduce new ideas (any help is welcome, I want to see this community shine like it used to). Game/Community Hubs Hubs will act as a place of discussion for a game. They'll be run by Community Managers (more on these further down the post) who will moderate, organise events etc. Since we can't just create a hub for every game in existence, I want people to actually come forward and request to add a new hub when they have a group of people interested in said game. We'll have a dedicated section on the forums for hub requests with clear instructions on how the process is handled. Community Managers If these changes are effective and bring in more people, we're going to need some people to manage each hub. This is where Community Managers come in. These individuals would be community-elected (we into politics now bois) and serve as the primary administrators of their respective hub. They can run their hub as they wish, so long as they listen to the community of said hub. Basically, they're like moderators of a subreddit, for those familiar with Reddit. Discord The Discord server will get a serious overhaul to be more in line with the whole hub thing. We don't want to make it too crowded though (not have 100 different text channels for a singular game) so we'll have to impose limits on hubs based on popularity and the type of game. You'll be able to assign yourself groups through a bot based on what hubs you want to be in. Once you're in a hub's group you'll be able to see the channels related to the hub and partake in discussions and events. What of the servers? Our CoD4 servers will continue to be run as normal, nothing really changes here. However, once the overhaul of the leaderboards, servers page and Echelon are done, we might start putting up servers for popular hubs. More details once we're actually ready for it. So yeah, let me know what you think. If you have any ideas worth sharing, don't hesitate. All of your opinions matter to us, we want to provide you with the best possible community experience we can. I've attached a poll to the post so we can get a bit of an overview on the amount of people that like/dislike the idea. If you vote (especially if you vote no), we'd really appreciate if you also explained your choice. As a final note, I'd like to thank everyone that's been there with us up to this point. You've all been wonderful and it means a lot to me that there's people who genuinely care a lot about our community.
  10. Hi there! As a bit of an incentive for you all to keep playing and as a thank you for the support you've shown thus far, we've decided to give the first person to legitimately reach level 80 3 months of free VIP. Due to our implementation of the ranking system there is a slight limitation, however: You must be on a legtimitate CD key (Since ranks are assiociated with your GUID, cracked keys share ranks with other clients, therefore making leveling faster.) Once you have reached level 80, please DM me on the forums with a screenshot of your level and your B3 CID (you can find out what your B3 CID is by typing !regtest in the chat, it's the number after the @ symbol, please note that you must first !register to use this command). Thank you @iiManix for coining the idea. Regards, atrX. Before anyone asks, yes, we'll be updating the mod regularly. I'm currently working on fixing some issues and looking into implementing some new features already.
  11. The first update for our Deathrun mod is out now! This update is rather small as I have already been pushing constant changes to the server as issues were found. Changelog: Added Ghost Run Optimized a bunch of weapon assets (freeing up some space for more demanding maps and decreasing the mod size slightly) Added a few more maps to the rotation Removed Metal Sonic VIP character model (caused crashes due to missing tags, might be replaced at a later date)
  12. Sorry for taking this long to get the results out, I've been incredibly busy lately. ^.^ Anyway, here are the results (category scores are averages based on user votes, total is all categories added up). 4th Place: mp_dr_building_escape by @ImJustBad Theme: 1.7/5 Level of detail: 1.3/5 Uniqueness and variation of traps: 2/5 Map flow: 3.7/5 Optimisation: 0/2.5 (No caulk) No script errors: 0/2.5 (One of the traps throws an "undefined is not an entity" error + entering an endroom on free run throws an error) Total: 8.7/25 3rd Place: mp_dr_metal_factory by @Cloudy Theme: 3/5 Level of detail: 3.5/5 Uniqueness and variation of traps: 4/5 Map flow: 4/5 Optimisation: 0/2.5 (No caulk) No script errors: 0/2.5 (Entering an endroom on free run throws an error) Total: 14.5/25 2nd Place: mp_dr_petrichor by @jwofles Theme: 4.5/5 Level of detail: 4.5/5 Uniqueness and variation of traps: 3.5/5 Map flow: 2/5 Optimisation: 2.5/2.5 (Congratulations on being the only person in the contest to know what caulking is) No script errors: 0/2.5 (Entering an endroom on free run throws an error) Total: 17/25 1st Place: mp_dr_industrial by @TheHumble_J Theme: 4/5 Level of detail: 5/5 Uniqueness and variation of traps: 4.7/5 Map flow: 3.7/5 Optimisation: 0/2.5 (No caulk) No script errors: 0/2.5 (Entering an endroom on free run throws an error) Total: 17.4/25 Congratulations on the win @TheHumble_J! I'll DM you about your prize. And thank you everyone else who entered.
  13. Posting these early so I can get some feedback in before we release the update. We've heard your complaints about the rotation and I've finally done something about it. Changelog New: Opening the shop menu will now inform you of the rental period through a message at the top left of your screen. New rotations (we can switch between the available rotations on the fly): Default Best maps Classics All maps Changes: Doubled shop credits gained at the end of each round (1 -> 2). Extended shop rental period (2 days -> 7 days). Various improvements to the anti-glitch plugin (anti-lag, anti-ele, ...). Removed Spectrum camo. Adjusted level requirements for all camos to adjust for the removal of Spectrum camo. Increased XP gained when activating traps (60 -> 100). Increased XP gained for activator when a jumper dies (20 -> 30). Increased XP gained at the end of each round (20 -> 50). New endround/endmap songs. Fixes: Fixed an issue where equiping the VIP deagle while having a camo selected would crash the game. Added back mp_deathrun_grassy_v4, mp_deathrun_nukebase, mp_dr_industrial and mp_dr_pipe (no longer crash the game due to xmodel limit). Blocked mid-air elevators. Blocked slide cut on mp_dr_skypower. We want your feedback regarding the new rotations. You can see which maps are included in each rotation here: If you want to see a specific map added/removed in a certain rotation, leave a comment here with your reasoning and we'll take it into consideration. Old only map events will still be a thing from time to time and these can be toggled on/off regardless of the active rotation, so each old only event isn't necessarily the same.
  14. Hi there! We've just launched our own Promod server (well, yesterday...)! https://www.gametracker.com/server_info/raid-gaming.net:28985 It's pretty barebones right now as I've been busy with other things, but I did promised to get it out by the end of the month so yeah... I'll probably update the mod with new stuff at some point. My main focus was the new server-sided anti cheat, which covers a few common types of cheats and has been rolled out onto most of our servers (basically all the ones where it would actually be useful). The new anti cheat will be updated and adjusted regularly (though you won't notice, as it's completely server-sided). Regards, atrX.
  15. Changelog New: Added 7 new FX trails (thanks @Mist) Added 4 new geometry trails (thanks @xoxor4d0xzz) Community Announcement and Admin Message through B3 (admins only, across all servers) !join commands (only able to add these on Deathrun and Surf, unfortunately) Added 5 more maps to the rotation (mp_deathrun_hop, mp_deathrun_wood, mp_deathrun_ponies, mp_dr_merry_xmas, mp_dr_fallrun) Changes: Reverted weapon skins to the old Raid ones (the really shiny gold ones) Ghosts now have ammo (and can also under no circumstances damage the activator) VIP Deagle now has a purple muzzleflash Removed clip blocking the activator from getting close to the end door on mp_deathrun_liferun Added back Beatthat's Deagle to mp_dr_destiny Fixes: Killcam will now also trigger for the activator when players are in ghost run Fixed endmap triggers on some maps Fixed traps not giving XP on some maps Fixed mp_dr_bounce endrooms Fixed mp_dr_blue to force fullbright regardless of your preferences Fixed mp_deathrun_factory's endgame music overlapping with the endround songs Fixed mp_deathrun_factory's sniper room never getting enabled if players in in ghost run Fixed mp_dr_destiny's final fight not getting enabled if players are in ghost run Server now has enough time to display the winning map of a mapvote properly Added mp_deathrun_factory to the exception list for anti spawn camp to prevent people from dying when jumping into spawn from the activator room Fixed spectator button overlay overlapping with ghost run text Added back the german shepard model and animations (mp_deathrun_cherry endroom fix) If you find any more bugs or issues, please report them here: https://raid-gaming.net/forum/79-bug-reports-feature-requests/
  16. I'd like to welcome two new Trial Admins to our team: @wav33 and @Fedzor! During their trial period they'll be watching our servers alongside the rest of our team and performing actions where they deem necessary. As for the trials, you'll find the necessary information in the admin section of the forum.
  17. The 1.4 update will go live at ~7PM GMT today. The changelog can be found below. Changelog New: Added an additional 120 levels to make for a total of 200 earnable levels! Reach level 200 for a shiny animated rank icon. (thanks @xoxor4d0xzz) Added a few new maps to the rotation and removed some that were causing errors due to engine limits (if there's any maps you'd like added/removed, please make a topic about it here) You can now select a camo to use on your guns (there's 5 camos, won't be adding more due to asset limits) New customisation options: (huge thanks to @Mist and @ERICOS for fixing a bunch of broken stuff) 11 new characters 4 new viewhands 4 new guns 1 new VIP melee weapon 1 new non-VIP melee weapon New endround and endmap songs (about time) Changes: Killcam overhaul, now also shows on the last round Player cards (the thing that pops up when someone gets a kill) have been overhauled New rank icons (you'll earn a new icon every 5 levels, up to level 100, at which point you'll be granted the Raid logo icon until you reach the gold 200 icon) Endround end endmap songs now play from a queue instead of being randomly selected Tomahawk got its old texture back from the old mod L96A1 has been replaced with the L115A3 from Ghosts MW3 Five-Seven has been replaced with the BO2 one Viewhands customisation now applies to the activator too (now shut up @iiManix) Fixes: Wounded and Captain America viewhands no longer cause unused attachments to show on weapons Pressing ESC no longer closes the mapvote Secret exit on mp_dr_hardstyle has been moved mp_dr_alley will now correctly give you an RPG in the RPG room Secret on famous should be properly blocked now Going old on mp_dr_caution no longer takes your guns away Fixed hard secret exit on mp_dr_jump_hard Blocked cut in first secret on mp_dr_lithium that made secret faster than main map Blocked cut on mp_dr_rock Fixed endmap trigger on mp_deathrun_azteca Probably some stuff I forgot to mention, but the most important bits should be in the changelog.
  18. I'd like to take a moment to congratulate @Fedzor for being the first player to reach level 80. He has hereby won the race and will receive 3 months of free VIP. We'll have more little competitions like this in the future for others to have a chance to win something.
  19. Changelog New: New and improved lag detection (should detect all kinds of lag and not throw false-positives) Fixes: Going back into the map on mp_dr_skypower after finishing no longer kills you. If there's any problems found with the new anti lag, please message me about it on Discord or reply to this topic!
  20. Hi there! Due to the shutdown of Google+, we will be discontinuing the support for signing in through Google+. The permanent removal of Google+ as a sign in option will take effect on March 7th. Until then, there will be gradual, controlled outages of the sign in service of Google+ (this is not us, but Google doing this). If you are having trouble signing in, try again a few hours later. If you are using Google+ as your only authentication method, you should attach a password to your account now so you don't lose access once Google+ Sign-In is removed. You can set a password for your account here: https://raid-gaming.net/settings/password/ Regards, atrX.
  21. I'll be the first. I just cleaned up the mess that was my taskbar and decided to change some other stuff around, like install Winstep Nexus Dock. It's so much nicer now.
  22. Small update introducing two new features and some animation fixes. Changelog New: Added option to toggle showing jumpers (B51 or !hideplayers) Added option to enable a speed meter (B52) Changes: Adjusted Karambit animations (thanks @Mist)
  23. Hi there! We'll be doubling all XP gained on the Deathrun server this weekend starting NOW until Sunday 9PM GMT. Hope to see you all on the server! Regards, atrX.
  24. We've just relaunched and with this came a new theme. If you find any issues with it, please report them here. Regards, atrX.
