Am I allowed to link your site on my web site (Links: Do's and Don'ts)? Zum Anfang der Seite
Sure. Banners and Buttons can be found under Main ->Link Us. Please always refer to our home page within your link (http://www.spielwieseserver.de/).

You are not allowed to directly link (so called: hotlinking) to the content of this web site! Example: You set links to our downloads on your web site, it now appears as if the download was available at your own site but in fact it will be downloaded from our server.

We react quite allergic to this kind of traffic theft and will generally block your site and inform your ISP/ host about the abuse immediately.
 
Am I allowed to use content from your web site for my own site? (Copyright) Zum Anfang der Seite

Actually we are easy to get along with and we won’t bite you. The copyright for any material created by Spielwieseserver.de is reserved.

Do I need to register to this web site? Zum Anfang der Seite
No, there is no need to register. Downloads, Tutorials, Forum etc. are free for all. Nevertheless some features of this web site (e.g. Instant Message service, email service, writing comments on special issues, uploading pictures to the gallery etc.) are for registered users only. Participation in tournaments and other events is also for registered users only.
 
Do you guys sponsor server? Zum Anfang der Seite
No, we do not sponsor any server on principle. We are already paying a lot of money to offer this web site and our gameservers free of all advertisement. But if you like to, you are welcome to donate for this service. Just click on the PayPal image on the left hand side.
 
How to become Admin/SemiAdmin to your server? Zum Anfang der Seite
Becoming an Admin is quite unlikely, unless we personally know you and you meet some special requirements (i.e.: you got lots of money to spend^^).

SemiAdmin: From time to time we are looking for new/more SemiAdmins. This will be announced in the news and/or in the forum. The requirements for becoming a Semi will be posted there too.
 
I can't connect to the server (anymore). What to do now? Zum Anfang der Seite
If you receive the error message Rejected by Server when trying to connect to the server, this may have to reasons:

1. Server reached maximum number of players. Please try again later (when less people are on the server).

2. Your IP has been banned. Please write us an e-mail (using the contact link on the left hand side) or an Instant Message. Please note that we need the following information:

- Your full nickname
- Your IP address
- Since when does the problem occur (time and date)?
- Exact error message received by server

Please do not post in the forum! Since we always need your full IP address, a public forum like ours is certainly not the place to display such sensitive data of yours.
 
I can't connect to the server: version mismatch Zum Anfang der Seite
If a version mismatch occurs when trying to join the server, you got a file in your TO installation which is different from the server's file but carries the same name.

Workaround: The filename is displayed with the 'version mismatch' error message. Search for this file in your TO installation and delete it. When joining the server the correct file will be downloaded from the server automatically and you can join (again).
 
I can't login to this web site anymore?! Zum Anfang der Seite
It's been a while right? Accounts not used for more than 90 days will be deleted automatically in order to keep the number of registered and active users more realistic.
 
I got banned, what can I do now? Zum Anfang der Seite
If you think you got banned undeservedly, please write an e-mail using the contact link on the left hand side. Don't forget to provide all available and applicable information in your e-mail. Information needed:

- Your full Nickname
- Your IP Address
- Time, date and mapname
- Name of admin who banned you

Please do not post in the forum! Since we always need your full IP address, a public forum like ours is certainly not the place to display such sensitive data of yours.
 
I want a signature with my own player’s stats too, how do I do that? Zum Anfang der Seite
Go to your profile and type the following link in the signature text box. Please note: You must enter the link without the red-marked * characters. As YourPlayerName enter your nick exactly as it is shown in the Player’s Stats.

[sig*]http://spielwieseserver.de/tostat/signatur.php?player=YourPlayerName[/sig*]

If you want to use your signature on other web sites this usually works with this html-code (please bear in mind that not all web pages allow html in signatures):

<*img src="http://spielwieseserver.de/tostat/signatur.php?player=YourPlayerName /img*>
 
Is Spielwiese a clan? Zum Anfang der Seite
No! So please: No emails asking whether you can join the clan. There is no clan, really!
 
My nick does not show up in your Player's Stats (TOStat)? Zum Anfang der Seite
If your name doesn't show up in the Player Stats (CTF Server only), there are two possible reasons:

1. You haven't played the minimum number of games yet. The number of games necessary to get listed in the stats can be found on top of the stats as min. xx Games.

2. If your nick is not listed although you've already played more games than necessary, you are probably using a nickname with too many special characters. Some symbols and special characters are not recognized by the stats - particularly when these characters are the first letter(s) in your nick. If you want to be listed in the stats, do not use characters like "<" etc. followed by another symbol as first letters in your nick.
 
Where to put all the map, mutator and mod files after downloading? Zum Anfang der Seite
You've downloaded a map and now you've got no clue where to put all the files? Find your Tactical Ops installation, the files belong into the folders of the second Tactical Ops folder as follows (e.g. C:.../Tactical Ops/ Tactical Ops/):

.unr -> Maps
.uax -> Sounds
.utx -> Textures
.umx -> Music
.u -> System

The .u and .int files of mutators and mods always go into the first System folder of your installation.
 
Why does your CTF-Server ask for a password sometimes? Zum Anfang der Seite
Our CTF-Server currently got 22 slots but it is limited to 20 normal players. The last two slots are reserved for admins. Just wait until there are less than 20 players connected to the server then you will be able to join again. And no, you cannot get the password for the admin-slots.
