Q: I do have the map. Why am I bouncing back to the menu anyway?
There is a legathy way to download maps. Our server don't support legathy map downloading.
Try setting the follwing cvar to 0 to deactivate it.
Code: Select all
/cl_allowdownload 0



Q: Why does it not download the map when I connect to the server?
For some time the worldspawn map database has a new URL http://ws.q3df.org. It used to be "q3a.ath.cx" but that is in the past now. That provider stopped forwarding the domain to our servers. That's why it now can only be accessed via http://ws.q3df.org.

Unfortunately that affects the auto download feature of dfengine and iodfe, too.
To continue downloading maps you have to change the dl_source cvar.
set it to "http://ws.q3df.org/getpk3bymapname.php/%m"


Q: Why did I not get a password for the account I just registered?
    Some mail providers reject our emails. Sorry, you have to choose another email provider. :( Providers known to cause problems are: hotmail, mail.ru and gmail.com

Q: How do I change my password?
    Log out by pressing the "logout" button in the upper right corner of the website(http://q3df.org). Then click on "Lost Password" and change your password. You cannot choose the password itself but merely have a new one generated. DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR USERNAME AND/OR PASSWORD TO ANYONE! NOT EVEN TO mDd STAFF!

Q: How do I login on the server?
    A: To Log in, you have to register an account on this website(http://q3df.org) beforehand. One you have you username and password you can type
    Code: Select all
    !login USERNAME PASSWORD
    into the console with "USERNAME" being the username you have choosen and "PASSWORD" the password you received via email. You will get a "you have been looged in" message once you successfully logged in. DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR USERNAM AND PASSWORD TO ANYONE! NOT EVEN TO mDd STAFF!

Q: I was logged in and scored a time on a mDd server, but there was no response from the record system. Is my time Lost?
    A: No, your time is saved to our database. It's very likely that our main server just didn't respond. Your time is never lost, UNLESS there is a message that tells you the game server can't connect to the database.
    If !top works, your time was saved.

Q: When I try to connect to a server in the mDd network I see the loading screen but in the end i get kicked right before joining in.
    A: When you scroll upwards in the console, and see the following error message, then it's a known bug we can't do anything about at the moment. The problem is that some maps are really close to the entity limit quake3 can handle. Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Code: Select all

Do you have your reverse DNS zones set up correctly?
Many mail providers reject or mark as spam if you dont.
