Site Update - December 2, 2010
Tonight's update is due to a change in our in-game ad provider. In-game ads will now (once again) be supplied by IGA Worldwide. This transition is mostly transparent to the end-user. The vast majority of today's changes were minor code changes made for development purposes. We currently have the next content update scheduled for Tuesday, December 14th, which includes the majority of our new content and bug fixes that has been in development.
* Saving of Settings & Binds across sessions has been re-enabled.
* Configuration changes to our primary DB to improve performance and better handle loads which have recently resulted in site outages.
* Integrated IGA Worldwide in-game ads.
* Chat lines are now limited to 72 characters per message to prevent chat from overflowing/becoming unreadable.
* Formatting fixes made to say_team chat.
* Added 'cg_chatHistoryLength' (Default 6, <0-24>) to adjust how many lines of chat history are displayed while chatting or viewing the chat history.
MY FAVOURITE PART, VERY IMPORTANT CHANGES!!!
