ddnet: Links


With recent versions of DDNet client you can play demo files directly by pulling them into the client instead of having to put the demo file into the demo directory and navigating to it in the client.

A less known feature that has existed for a few months is opening links to DDNet server with the client directly. The links can look like this:

You can see those links on our status page as well.

On Windows you can set the default program to open ddnet: links using this guide by following the instructions for "Manage Launch Options by Protocol".

On Linux you can create a ~/.local/share/applications/DDNet.desktop file with this content:

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=DDNet %u

And then running xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler ddnet DDNet.desktop.

Most Points in a Day


On Sunday, March 17 DDNet broke its old record of the most points earned in a day! The points were made on the following server types:


Obviously being on the weekend gave a big bonus, but nearly half of the earned points were thanks to the freshly released Dummy map Dummy Chamber 3 by Im 'corneum:

Dummy Server

2019-03-17 16:00

Dummy Chamber 3

by Im 'corneum

Difficulty: ★★✰✰✰, Points: 15
Grenade Deep Freeze

The map is the third installation in a map series inspired by the graphics and puzzles of the popular Portal game series.

For comparison, the previous record of 21531 points in a day was also on a Sunday, specifically March 6, 2016. And one day earlier another dummy map in a popular series was released as well: Caventure IV by Meliodafu:

Dummy Server

2016-03-05 20:20

Caventure IV

by Meliodafu

Difficulty: ★★✰✰✰, Points: 15
Grenade Rifle Endless Hook No Player Collision Super Jumps Jetpack

I guess this either means that Dummy maps are really popular or they give too many points considering their difficulty.

In unrelated news, there has been a lot of work going on in DDNet development today, so look forward to the next release.

Theme Switcher by Elouan


As you might have noticed the DDNet.tw website had a Halloween theme for a bit of a longer time this year. Some people, including me, took a liking to the dark theme by Soreu.

Now thanks to Elouan we have a theme switcher in the top right corner on DDNet.tw that allows you to enable the dark theme and keep the setting stored in a cookie in your browser.
