Easy joining of the UKCS DoD servers for everyone by clicking an in game menu option. Additionally, for sponsors, this allows access to the reserved slots to get in to the server even when full!
It can be downloaded by clicking on the link - http://www.ukcs.net/plugins/DOD_UKCS_GUI_Setup.exe
unzip and install
Note. The extra menu options can be removed at anytime by going in to Windows Remove Programs and de-installing.
To install the GUI on a Mac, all you need to do is to unzip the following file to your ..Steam/steamapps/common/Day of Defeat source/dod/custom folder:http://www.ukcs.net/plugins/DOD_UKCS_GUI_MAC.zipScreen Image
To use simply download the file, and run the executable, you will be asked for your steam username (the one you loginto steam with) - enter that, if you get an error message then it cant find the folder, in that case make sure you have entered it correctly. Once its working simply hit yes/agree/next etc and it will be installed.

Note. If you are a sponsor, then the way our reserved slot system works you will always be able to get on before any non sponsors also waiting. If you try to connect as a sponsor and get "Server Full", that will only be because another sponsor has just got in before you.Non Sponsors
You should use the 'auto join' method provided by steam which connects you when a public slot becomes available. If a slot is showing as free on the server, then its a public slot and you can join. Ie, you don't have to wait until 2 slots show as free. The sponsor slots are hidden from you so do not get in the way of using standard 'auto join' queuing method.
