Just wondering if there isnt a few too many posters to be loaded... I occasionally get an issue when downloading a big map, once its finished it wont join the game ..msg error : Reliable snapshot overload (or something like that).
I had recently re-installed my Steam + games and found the posters took quiet some time, and I was concerned about that error , fortunately it didnt occur on this occasion.

Just something that may be worth thinking about, the number of posters and the time it takes to download them.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

Ah, that's not the posters that are taking the time to download. :)

As the posters are the last thing to be downloaded on connect, it says it is still downloading them whilst it is actually loading the map (the message shown doesn't change). The posters themselves are actually really small in filesize and take about the same time to download as sprays from other players.

It's an annoying way that valve have made their preloader, unfortunately. :(

As nice as all the new posters are, it might dissuade newcomers. theres about 40 posters so far and if it continues people who join ukcs for the first time will download all of these at once. Good work, just think that the turnover of posters needs to be relatively small

You only download the posters that are being shown on the map on first connect. :)

If those posters are used on subsequent connects, they are not re-downloaded. :)

downloading them time and time again when im on a 3 hr pub stunt makes me want to cry, especially as you seem to be updating them or something. D: ive never connected without having to download custom files from the server.

That shouldn't be happening- it will only download the new posters if they are used on the map, anything you've seen before should be cached.

Didn't quite know where to post this, but I played on TF2 DB #3 this afternoon and saw a poster on the wall of point one. This one either needs better placement or less lighting, because it's way too bright.

Image

Odd thing is, next round there was a new poster there, but that was also really bright. (do they randomize?)

yes the posters are randomised from a pool, they have set place holders though where posters from this pool end up

Thanks Valkyrja, I've replaced that poster with a darker version that should avoid the blooming you saw. :)

Re: UKCS Posters - In Game! UPDATE!!!

Postby FunkySpider on Wed Feb 03, 2010 1:17 am

Right, well thanks to TC and Xerxes the poster system has been updated.
Some of you (like myself) with lower-end graphics setting may of noticed that the posters also render in low detail and were virtually unreadable. Now all posters render in high res and are readable to everyone who visit the UKCS servers.
I hope everyone will join me in congratulating TC and Xerxes. Nice work guys :)

I believe she is deleting them or something so they don't appear on the servers while she plays or something to that effect :)
Btw, Where do they install too, Because It be nice to be able to clear them out after a while because obviously some of these posters are come and go so I can save some space...Specially since after a while even if they are small, they are going to start eating space :o
