    should be able to put this in the SB rotation easily, I think... but it'll be a few days before I can get to that.

    Well, we do still have the sources for the original FFN freezetag, but those need updating. :S ;)

    It's something that's on the backburner, but I haven't forgotten.

    This one runs with any map has no errors and most importantly doesnt crash the server unless you have other plugins conflicting with it give it a try.

    Would there be some way to change it so you respawn after being frozen for x number of seconds? I'm not liking the pseudo-arena aspect of it.

    Yeah I agree. If someone were to pick you off far from the group you could be frozen a loooooong time.

    Yeah, potentially sitting still for the whole round doesn't sound like that much fun.

    The rounds dont really take that like most of them are like 2 to 3 min timer.

    Um, people on the Internet have ADD. Sitting still for 2 minutes would kill them.

    ^ Lol, you never played Arena then.

    But yeah, I liked the old way of Freezetag where you were only frozen for like 10 seconds or whatever.

    Freezetag. Gotta get back into that.

    compared to that this is like nothing.

    In this mode once everyone is frozen your team loses or whoever has the most frozen you can still stand you your teams circle to unfreeze them.

    Yes, like 2 games and I vowed to never do it again.

    You'd be surprised to learn how much of us are quite familiar with freezetag. Hell, aside from the frozen model changes and no time limit on frozen status, this is our jam.

    I'm testing this plugin right now for addition to SB.

    Is anyone familiar with MetaMod:Source extensions? I had another look at the old Freezetag plugin, but it relies on a windows-only DLL called 'rtti_mm.dll' which I can find no information on. Anyone know something about this?

    Doesn't look like it's going to happen. the FT plugin crashes the server whenever somebody connects. and this is without any other plugins loaded.

    I've met the requirements (TF2items + SDKHooks) and even tried the latest SM snapshot. no luck.

    are you using the dev versions of SM MM SDK and tf2items ?
