CS:GO Community Night, Sunday February 26 @ 9:00 PM Eastern

To test our custom maps collection a bit quicker, we are going to play CS:GO once a month. Months with a WAN/LAN party will be skipped since we already play the game at those. This is a trial run for this. If we do not get enough of us to make it worthwhile, we will stick to the WAN/LAN parties in the future, and we will most likely switch to a test run of Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed. The maps for this time around are cs_cruise, cs_downtown, de_coast, and de_log.

We will be playing survival mode this time around. We have now survived all of the maps beyond 10 minutes (gold medal level), so our objective is to extend that time. The red-highlighted map marks where we left off last time around. We will start with the Underground this time but will most likely switch around 10 PM to another map to break it up.

X-Wing Alliance for $1!
Posted on Saturday February 18, 2017

X-Wing Alliance has a great single player game and is also still a decent multiplayer game that we have played recently and will most likely revisit again soon. The game is $1 through the Humble Bundle right now, and you get a few other games thrown in for good measure.

You can find out more about getting it to work in multiplayer here.

Forums Downtime
Posted on Friday February 03, 2017

Just a heads up that there will be some forums downtime tomorrow (Saturday) morning, hopefully only until 10:00 am EST. We will be upgrading to a new version of Invision Power Board at that time. I will be on Discord during this time to provide updates as needed.


Bad Company 2 server and how to join it
Posted on Friday February 03, 2017

We now have a working Bad Company 2 server that we can use on occasion. If you want to join it, you will need to follow a few steps beyond installing the game. You can find those instructions at this link:

http://www.osfhome.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=7522

Our server is currently online for you to test your connection to it once you follow the steps at the link above. We will most likely work this game into our spring WAN line-up. The ultimate goal with this game is to host the Vietnam mod at a WAN or LAN party soon after it goes on sale again for a cheaper price than it is currently. Here are links to both the base game and Vietnam mod on STEAM, but you will most likely want to wait for a sale as both have gone on sale at times for $5 or cheaper.

Random Community Night, Sunday February 5 @ 9:00 PM Eastern

Because Sunday is Superbowl Sunday and the end of the game will likely go over the first hour of our community night, we are making this one a random game of choice. It should have been Overwatch and DiRT Showdown, so if you want to have one or both of those games at the ready, that might be what gets played. Those who show up first can negotiate what gets played and everyone else will most likely join in along the way.

Once again, we are going to test a different plugin that should allow the addition of more than 8 players in versus mode, but we will see how it goes. We are keeping track of the campaigns that we play in versus mode just as we do for the other modes and will pick up with Death Toll this time.

Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Day of Defeat:Source @ 11:00 PM Eastern Sat Jan 28
Posted on Friday January 27, 2017

The final game in our line-up of games for our winter WAN party this Saturday January 28 is Day of Defeat:Source which we will switch to around 11:00 PM Eastern. You need only have it installed from STEAM as any maps that are not included with the game will be downloaded from the server automatically. We plan to play some maps with a snow theme, dod_anemia and dod_colmar. If you do not already own the game, you can buy it through STEAM for $10:

Here is our server to add it to your favorites if you have not already done so.
