"Free? Check. Fun? Check. Moving trains? Check. One of the best Source arena shooters out there. 11/10 like Oregon Trail with guns. Pass the whisky!"

A message regarding advertisement in dedicated servers.

This message concerns the whole Fistful of Frags community, and more specifically server admins.

As you know, some servers display ads in a window called "Message of the Day" (MOTD), the one which opens along team selection menu. That was (and still is) considered by me as a valid source of income for the respective server owners, certainly preferred over other options as VIP accounts and other undesirable monetization schemes.

There's a problem though. Those ads are played using Adobe Flash, which is an utterly shitty piece of software that may cause crashes to our game. Since those crashes are engine related, they cannot be debugged or fixed in any way by me.

Possible solutions? None good I'm afraid. Until I know how to prevent those crashes, I decided to prevent the origin of it. This only can be done by preventing the MOTD screen showing any HTML code at all. It's a pretty bad solution for everybody, including those servers not displaying ads, I admit it. It's still better than a crashing game though.

That's all I have to say regarding this matter, for the moment. The MOTD window still can be used to show pure text messages, if that's of any use for someone out there.

About This Game

Fistful of Frags born years ago as a Wild West themed modification for Source engine. It has been completely renewed for its Steam release, paying special attention to combat mechanics. Please note that current build lacks certain features and maps from past versions, as we are hoping to continue the work once the community grows.

Also note this is a completely *free* standalone mod, no micro-transactions exist, no registration required. Just install and play.

Features

  • Classic death-match and up to 4 teams death-match: non stop, all around action
  • Detailed dual wield system: double dynamic crosshair, weapon flip for extra accuracy options, drop or throw your handguns as projectile attack
  • Advanced multiplayer bots for off-line practice
  • Historical black gunpowder based weapons as Colt Peacemaker/Navy/Walker, S&W Schofield, Volcanic pistol, Deringer, Smith Carbine, Sharps rifle or Henry Rifle
  • Customization options: choose primary/secondary weapons and special perks
  • Skill based scoring system: the more skill required to accomplish an attack, the higher score is
  • Source Engine 2013: community managed dedicated servers, LAN support, 3rd party level design and user customization allowed

YEEEHAW! One of the best free games I have ever played this year. This is one heck of a western shooter. And since it's free, I am sure you'll join the community. And they update the game very frequently.

(NOTE: That was before the Steam version was released.)
