Maybe you missed something ;)

But seriously, this thread is out of control, why not start a new one with relevant up-to-date information (teasers) and just close this.....

When youve figured out a system that doesnt measure how much free time you have, keep it a secret as it could make you alot of money one day :p

I don't know how many other ways were thought of for CP's... I often wanted to have extendable widths and heights to check points when making TMO maps. But I havn't really felt a need for that in Nations. Same with finish lines, You can quite often see people line up 2, 3 (or more) finish lines tog...

Most features are now working, but the some of the less used stuff was put on hold while we got the new WR system running on all 3 sites. We got that done today, TMO finally went live with the 3 new Leaderboards (Normal, Classic and Nadeo). The Aseco stuff is being worked on still, but we do plan to...

We hope to have all 3 sites back up and running by the end of this weekend. Things will come back online in stages as MrD reworks some chunks of code. One or two of the less used features (like the author leaderboard and You Might Like) might take us a couple more weeks to get working again. The new...

The new WR system is up on the Sunrse site, feel free to try it out,although we are still likely to change some the calculations it does for track ratings, but the experience of playing just for have the best 10 times can be experienced.

The Track Attack is delayed until we fix the Nations site.

We're working on fixing it, its just alot of recoding on how things are to be calculated. When its done the site should be alot faster than it was before it went offline.

TMX Nations offline... [Now mostly Online]

Sorry folks but we've had to take the Nations site offline because it is unrealistically performance hungry (apparantly using between 50% and 80% of the database servers resources at a near constant rate). We are impacting other paying customer sites on our shared server due to us using all the reso...

Just a little update... as always, things are taking slightly longer than expected.

The new WR system is nearly done, it should be uploaded in the next 2 or 3 days.
Track attack will definitely not be finished before the end of next weekend now.
