Well I was thinking about it and decided that we should organize a LAN party. Well not a LAN party per se, since we're not on the same network, but an Internet gaming party.

In order to maximize the amount of people that can take part in it, we should decide on a time that would be convenient to everyone.

Also we need to decide what games to play. For starters, I would suggest:

Starcraft
Counter Strike (anyone know if I can download it somewhere?)
Red Alert 2 (maybe)

So yeah, start suggesting and let's organize this!

PS: If a mod could sticky this, it would be great.

I would be down with any of those games. I haven't palyed any of them recently, but I'm in.

Also we could do an Xbox one using Xbox Connect.

Yeah sure why not :) The only problem is I don't have an Xbox so I wouldn't be able to participate :p But those who do certainly could.

Don't forget about the absurd spec requirments for Halo 1 on PC, that didn't use half of what it said it needed.

I don't see how thats relevant, and my computer can easily run it on good graphics. But craps itself on Doom 3.

It applies because that was Halo 1, an old game that people had a hard time running. Now the sequel is comming, with revamped graphics and physics.

DonMancini
11-06-2004, 02:18 PM
Well I don't have a pc capable of handling unreal tournament 2003 or halo 2, so I won't be able to participate in that :p Keep enumerating games, I'll make a list.

Halo 2 is comming out with more requirements.
If you cant run Doom 3 but Halo 1, then I doubt you can run Halo 2.


Edit: I still say RTCW: ET

If you guys were smart, and assuming everyone has microphones, and someone can host, you can use Teamspeak. It's easy and free. Helps you coordinate efforts when gaming.

I have:

Counter-Strike
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
Starcraft and Expansion
Warcraft 3 RoC and TFT
C&C Generals
Halo

I'm up for any of them.

Although me (UK) playing on a US server could be disaster.

When I used teamspeak a long time ago I remember it being more difficult to use and less organized than ventrilo.

Halo PC (won't be playing it at all after Halo 2)
CS

I am up for these games :

Unreal Tournament Game of the year edition ( best UT ever )
Starcraft + expansion
Battlefield 1942 or the mod Desert Combat for BF1942
Warcraft 3
Counter-Strike


And yes, use Ventrilo instead of team speak. Using those programs we can get on a server and all talk to each other providing you have mics. My Counter-strike clan has a private server and my friend has a private server as well for Ventrilo. I can most likley get one of them to be used for the day or night or what ever.

Ok so after careful compilation, these are the games that have stood out that we can play. I am aware that most people would not be able to play all these games, so what we’re going to do is that we’re going to set up an aim or msn chatroom during the day of the party where we can decide together what to do. To do so, I need to know what you would prefer; Aim of MSN? At the same time, you can give your SNs to make things easier.

Starcraft
Starcraft Brood War
Halo PC
Halo 2 on xbox live.
Counter-Strike
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero
Warcraft IIIRoC and TFT
Unreal Tournament Game of the year edition
Battlefield 1942 or the mod Desert Combat for BF1942
Rise of Nations
Battlefield: Vietnam
Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun
Call of duty
Americas army
day of defeat
Command & Conquer Generals
Age of Mythology
Empire Earth

Also, most importantly, we need to decide on a date at which the party will take place. Post suggestions and time constraints!

You can get Half-life and CS 1.6 off suprnova.org. (the torrent is called ALL CS by XP i think, but make sure you follow the instructions in the FAQ to get it to work).
