I'm planning to spread some random obstacles around it which should make it harder. But another question: all those walls extremely slow down performance... cu...

K... I found out how i can change the maps every five rounds. The server prints "New Round" in var/scores.txt every time it starts a new round... Here's my script that uses it: #!/bin/sh i=0 #num stores the current map number to avoid overlapping on restart test -e num || echo 1 >num num=`cat num` w...

It works fine and creates good maps, but if i change map_file and map_uri on the server, the client won't download the new file... The server and client will only use the ...
