Oh
Well I was on my ipad last night so I couldn't check whether my assumtion was actually true

Well maybe you shouldn't make assumptions.

Make a news update on the home page showing off the Speed Kart Game mode.
Yeah, kart racing is more attractive than sports.

This has been suggested earlier, but unlike other people (idiots) i won't rub it in your face.

I was expecting the guy who made that part of jvs to know what he's doing

I don't know when this started, I just noticed it today - but when trying to play the Rampage Gamemode - Beta City never loads. The game starts and everything, I spawn. No Beta City. I've tried deleting GameMode_Rampage so the launcher redownloads it, but nothing. Here's a piece from my console log.

Is anyone else having this problem?

The game seems to do the last man standing thing if the respawn time is set to 0, not just -1. Would prefer a way to do instant respawn. Could use script to bump it up to 1 millisecond but that's just a workaround.

Instant respawn leads to confusion because you're running around and then bam, instantly back at spawn with no clue what happened.  With a 1 second delay, you can at least figure out that you died and get your bearings before respawning. 

What is that white terrain for in the middle of the karting map?

Are we suppose to enable Modular terrain bricks in RTB?

I'm making a climbing challenge as a game mode. From personal experience, a really frustrated player gets pissed off at even the shortest delay to getting back in the game. Plus, there's still the click to respawn thing, so it's as instant as the player chooses to make it.

My RTB doesn't work anymore.

A lot of people prefer the instant respawn. You should at least allow it as an option.
