Effects & Sounds in Maps

Just wondering, why are there no background sounds and things like snow effects in the maps anymore? There are a few exceptions, like in Chelm I can still hear this background 'war sound', probably because it's a custom map. But Stalingrad now is just too boring: no nice snow/drizzle, no background 'war sounds' and these metalic 'harbor sounds' (I guess you know what I mean).

These maps are not GOB Rats or similar of those funny 'box maps'. It would add to the atmos if these sounds and effects could return. Whas there a reason for them to be removed? If this server wants to be original and vanilla, it would be good to have them back.

Sorry for the late post,
I can return the server back to original, shouldnt be a big issue since theres almost no players ?

Well that would be nice, don't know about others, but personally it would be a reason to enjoy the server more when there are players. It's just a bit too boring now, even with players.

@Guarnere, there are very few players there. Such things lag on the server for low system computer users. Even so, very few players come in. If this is done, those who prefer to enjoy it may come, but I do not think they will come because of the low number of players.

Does it really? Come on, this is 2017, you cannot tell me that adding background sound affects performance. Snow, ok, maybe, but it's unlikely to be a lot. We might as well shut down this server if you think this way. People not coming, because there are no players on the server is not particularly a positive way of thinking. Just my two cents...

Partly true. In 2017, people who are generally low-system and don't forget the game are playing.

You know there are few people on the server. For this reason it is necessary to listen to the footsteps. If you turn on the background sounds, it will be hard to hear the sound. I just report my opinion. If you want the player to come to the server, you need to keep up with the fashion. https://gametracker.com/search/cod2/?&searchipp=50#search
If you don't want, you should make the settings immediately. I think your idea is awesome.

I know what you mean, but in my opinion such condition only applies to a map like GOB Rats. There it's part of the idea of the map that you don't hear anything, but not for the classic COD maps. Besides, if we could get this server alive again, there's no need to listen in silence for upcoming footsteps in the first place. I know the popular servers don't have background sounds either (like Veteran), but hey, they also allow you to play with all guns regardless of the nation you play, I think that's the reason they are more popular, not the lack of background sound. (Not implying that I want to use all guns now btw.)

Even if I am not playing the game, I might give my two cents.

Maybe you guys should actually sit together and think about what could make the server more popular.

As you implied, all guns regardless of the nation etc.
Maybe we could make a list of suggestions and then we could try to realize them.

More people playing -> growing community -> more possible donations too keep the server alive.

I know it's not about making money, but we haven't reached our monthly goal for a while I think, so maybe we should actually consider making some changes to the server to get more players.

Kind regards

Of course not just because of sounds. Large or near-large maps in require sound. ( Carentan, Chelm, Stalingrad, Rostov, Beltot, Caen... ) The popularity of popular servers is often related to the specificity of the server. All weapons, Extreme, Classic, Jump, Modern Warfare, Bot Zombie, Classic Zombie / SD, CTF, HQ, TDM, DM, Zombie, CTFB, Domination...

If you want to animate Cod2, we can discuss it under a special title.

Originally, the specificity of this server is that it's supposed to be 'vanilla' i.e. this server is supposed to stand out because it allows you to play classic multiplayer without too much shit like All Guns, or weird zombie mods. I don't mind a few new custom maps, I know some great ones that were used on the old CoD2 Server 2 here at JFF, which would be great to add.

Most important thing is indeed that people play, let that server go to the top of the list again. Maybe we could mark two days of the week as COD2 nights. If you are planning to game that night, play COD2. If you can't, fine, just make sure you join these event nights whenever you can. In that way hopefully people will automatically pick up this server again.

I would love to contribute to a CoD2 revival project 2.0, but only if some admins can jump in here and allow me and others to make changes.

We can make nice changes without making the game weird. We can share our thoughts if the Admins is involved.

I'll do whatever you guys thinks is fine but come to a agreement before notifying me to change things.

Lets see how many people are interested in this. If you are interested write some thoughts or suggestions here.
To make this possible, volunteers are needed.

My ideas:

We need 3 or 4 Cod2 server. One is Botzombie ( like Cod4 JFF Rotu ), one is CTF-HQ-Domination together ( like this: https://www.gametracker.com/server_info/176.9.54.140:28906/ ), one is DM server, If there is a fourth server that is SD server.

I'm sorry but....4 servers?
That's like you turn off your Internet and try to download porn. That doesn't work.

Maybe we should try to get the server we have, which is empty most if the time, full again.

I don't know who actually still plays cod 2 here, but maybe you guys should sit together and work out some concept.
And like Thunder said, first work something out before you inform him. Take your time, it doesn't have to be today.

I think it could be a system to enjoy the game and provide permanent players.

Honestly, just one CoD 2 eXtreme server would be interested me.

Like I said...
Before we start to create new servers to a game where we have no players, we should start to get the server we have more popular.

More servers mean more costs.
More costs and no players to play the server? Kinda nonsense..
