Yeah. It's fun, but I think a couple random gun game rounds would be fun with more plain CS:S.

I have reversed the gun list for gun game to make it more fun.  I should be able to get those maps installed and available for web redirect download.  The VIP thing may be trixy but we should be able to make it work.

The reason gun game sucked, was because there were like 4 people playing it.  When you're in a server with 24+ people..its a blast.

The main issue I saw with gungame was that if you joined the server in the middle of a round, you were screwed because everyone else already had the uber guns and you had crap.  May not be the case for everyone...but it happened to me several times at the LAN.

Idk if the server at the lan was set up with this, but the gun game servers I play online have it set up so you start a certain number of guns down from the leader.  Once again though, the game was slow going with so few people.  Getting a kill was sometimes a pain.

there is a setting that averages the levels of all of the poeple in the server, and gives you the gun for that level, but Im thinking that reversing the gun list will eliminate the need for that setting.

Reversing would be nice if you could remove knife and nade level, otherwise no one would get off the first 2 levels.

and KingViper is correct, gungame follows the inverse utility curve. Mo peoples mo fun.

I can only think of one person that frequents KGB LANs and doesn't have Counter-Strike: Source.  *cough*Viper*cough* But it's by choice, I think it's a "one man against the establishement" type of situation there.  8)

What steam accounts are you referring to?
