Version 2.5 of OSP Tourney DM is a
solid addition to the MAJOR upgrade in features that came
with version 2.0. OSP Tourney DM has an entirely new level of
integration never before seen in a Quake II™ mod, competition
based or otherwise. Here are the highlights of OSP
Tourney DM's features:
- The most helpful, thorough, fine tuned and tested
set of tournament and regular DM features available for either Regular
DM, Teamplay or 1v1.
- External server config editor, TouneyCE from Filipe
Toscano that allows for MUCH easier configuration of OSP
Tourney DM. The ability to tweak all of the options and modes
of Tourney with an integrated Help facility can allow anyone to easily
configure OSP Tourney DM. With a built-in Quake2 launcher,
this utility makes Tourney a highly viable (and actually quite fun) way
to play Tourney under a SinglePlayer environment (with Gladiator
server-side bots). Updates to Tourney CE are available at http://homepage.esoterica.pt/~smashing
- Full integration with the latest version of the
server-side Gladiator "bots" (v0.95) from Mr Elusive.
Among the list of new features of these bots is the ability to
strategically rocket jump to key areas of any map.
- Optional/votable Lithium-style rune
support. Competition-environment Rune-teamplay is now
possible with OSP Tourney DM. These runes are as configurable
as the Lithium runes along with a few new features to make them even
- Now includes NetGames
v1.1 for OSP Tourney DM.
- ngStats is a local log-parsing and analysis
system. After each match is played, all information that was
recorded from the match is stored in a player database and can be
viewed in real-time. Very attractive for both dedicated server ops and
SinglePlayer off-net players (Win32-only at the present time).
support for the new ngWorldStats
system from NetGames
USA. (All architectures) for global on-line player
information. The detail on these stats is
phenomenal! Visit http://Quake2.ngWorldStats.com/
- Substantial networking improvements to curb player
lag and overflow.
- Numerous bug fixes and gameplay enhancements (e.g.
optional vote player kicking is now available).

Tourney DM is a server-side only mod designed to
facilitate match play for tournaments, whether LAN-based or online. It
also has an enhanced regular DM mode for relaxed warmups and informal
Rather than having specific mods used for various aspects of tournament
play (i.e. Battle/GX for team play, Duel for 1v1, and even id DM for
FFA qualifiers), the tourney mod was designed specifically to handle
these modes of play with all of their unique requirements with the
configurability of Lithium.
The tourney supports 4 "modes" of operation:
- Regular DeathMatch
- Qualifier DeathMatch
- Team DM Play
- 1v1 DM Play
It should be noted that each of these modes are in fact unique and are
not just simple hacks to give different modes of play. OSP Tourney DM
is in fact 4 separate mods in one. The mod conveniently includes
separate pre-fabbed config files for each mode of operation. Numerous
other configuration options exist. Read the included readme.txt file
