Metaserver Updates 2015-11-08

Hey guys, So it's time to push some fairly extensive updates that have been building up to the metaserver today. These ones require some changes on the web/database side as well so rather than the usual 2 second interruption I'm guessing it could take up to an hour or so, assuming all goes well. Fro...

Re: How to play myth on 2nd monitor, Mac

Hmm, yeah the windowing system code is obviously one of the places where it has to be OS-specific, so not sure exactly how it works on Mac. On Windows you can indeed toggle on the fly and even continuously resize the window in windowed mode so you can pretty much do whatever you like.

On Windows you can press Ctrl-G to "grab" the cursor in windowed mode and constrain it to the window (and thus enable edge panning). Not sure if something similar works on Mac... give it a try.

Re: Feature Priorities

is it possible to add in a stat at the end of games that tracks a players/teams duds or would that be done through project magma? Any additional stats that you want represented on the metaserver would require changes to the client (as well). It already reports everything that it gets from the client.
