20/11/2005 - We're making progress! Written by: Koen
Long time no see!
It's been some while since you heard news about our matchmaker, but several functions were added this week. Also many bugs were solved. Here are the most important changes.
New style I gave the site some new colors. Hope y'all like it. It will probably get skinned when everything is ready. But for now, we'll use the simple version.
Problems logging in There were some problems with people who couldn't login using their password. This problem is solved now and won't happen again. Though those who still can't login need to change their password to make their account working again by following this link!
Mappack support We finally managed to get mappack support working. All mappacks are managed on the site, and if someone creates a game, and someone who joins doesn't have a mappack, the matchmaker client can automatically download and install the needed mappack. No more downloading yourself. Just click on the 'download' button and the matchmaker handles the rest!
Clan support It's not 100 % ready yet, but clans can be registered by using the 'register clan' link! Users can apply to the clan and fill in a question form. Then the clan leaders can accept/decline the applies. The only things that can't be done yet are deleting clans and clanmembers. That will be added soon!
On the priority list
While we're still finishing the implemented features, we already think ahead of our next challenges. Here's what's on the priority list!
Points Yeahyeah we're working on that! I'm looking for someone who can make a DLL that can read memory offsets. That's all I need. If I know that, the point system will be working soon!
Skinning We don't want our matchmaker to be ugly, so we want to support skinning. We still need to find a good way how to do that, but probably it will be possible for users to skin the mm themselves as well.
