I think the ideas are similar in this thread here. But I agree. Being able to just idle on the site waiting would eliminate the need for steam groups made for announcement of lobbies.

 

Also make it follow your filters as well.

Ah that's actually a good idea, sometimes I play Fistful of Frags when I wait for lobby and that game stops lobby from starting up TF because they're both source games, so a sound when the game starts would be nice.

There should be an option that you can select on the main page so that when new lobbies open up, it "dings" or makes some sort of sound. That way, when it is slow and I am browsing other pages, I will know when a lobby has opened so I can join it. Eh?

Well, since i started using TF2Centre, i have been finding it painfull to have to stop what i am doing every so often to see if there are any new lobbys, i think it would be beneficial if when a new lobby with your filters and things was available it played a sound

So I think that people miss out on a lot of centers because they are in game in TF2 and can't see when centers are made. If you had a second monitor this wouldn't be a problem, but for me and the other people who don't have a second monitor this is a problem. So what I'm suggesting is that you can toggle a noise notification for when a new center is opened so you know when to alt tab to join a new center.

Hey guys!

 

First time posting on this forum and I didnt see any posting guidelines so I apologize if this post is somehow incorrect.

 

I think it would be helpful to set up an alert system to detect and notify you when a lobby that meets your requirements is opened, Similar to the "Who is not ready?" alert when the lobby is full.

 

For example, lets say you want a Highlander lobby on badwater thats located in the US and has a pyro slot open. If a lobby opens up that meets those requirements, and you meet the criteria to join it, you will get a notification through your browser.

 

The filters shouldnt be able to be too vague or the player would be spammed with notifications.

 

I hope this is a half decent idea!

It would be really nice if you could hear some kind of sound when a new lobby created. This way you could play on pub server while waiting and alt tab as soon as you hear a sound.

 

Important thing is to make it filter sensitive.

It is great, but if this implemented I'd recommend making a button switch it on/off, because you won't want it always turned on, only when you tab out and do other stuff, as Heptagon said.

I usually find myself playing MGE or in a public server whilst waiting for a lobby to pop up. Instead of having to alt-tab every 20 seconds to check, or waiting longer and not getting the player slot I want, I suggest implementing a sound that plays when a new lobby is created. Whether it is a beep or a voice clip, a small sound alerting the player would be nice. For players that don't want this feature, you could also add a button that toggles the sound.

A notification for everytime a filtered lobby is started for exp. my filter is eu hl lobbys. So for everytime a lobby shows up i get a notification so that i don't have to camp on the page but i can do sth. else while waiting for a lobby to show up.

Great suggestions here... how far along has this come?

 

 

in addition, could we implement a Desktop notification system and/or bot that Steam messages when the lobby readies up?

Also if possible: with the 'Ready!' or 'Not Ready!' options as a dialogue box as such. 

 

I know this is already linked with the browser, but sometimes players don't hear the hoovy - maybe as they are tabbed out or otherwise.

 

Features:

 - can: enable/disable

 - nice distinguishable, but pleasant sound

 - for Desktop notification: pop-up in corner of screen
