Spring WAN instructions and info for this Friday

(Posted on Monday April 7th, 2014 by Kramerika)

Our Spring WAN (wide area network as opposed to local area network, in other words, on the internet) party will take place starting this coming Friday April 11th at 8 PM Eastern time (7 PM Central, 6 PM Mountain, 5 PM Pacific, 12 AM GMT) and will last as long as people are willing to play. Below are the games and servers to test your connection to before that night as well as the times that we have roughly slotted each game for based on some feedback. If we are (or are not) having fun, the times will move later (or earlier). Hopefully everyone will try each game even if it is not your favorite one as the more the merrier in any game.

Mumble and STEAM

We will be using Mumble and STEAM to communicate and coordinate. Mumble is probably the best bet, but STEAM will be used to play all of the games and will have most of us on there by default. If you want to expand your Friends list, see my account (Kramerika) as it contains most of our members and friends which you can add from there.

Counter-strike: Global Offensive: 8:00-9:30 PM Eastern

This is the follow-up to Counter-strike:Source. It is only $15 through STEAM if you do not own it.

Download CSGO ($15)


Team Fortress 2: 9:30-10:30 PM Eastern

Team Fortress 2 was good to us for many years. Sadly, our server got the shaft thanks to changes in how Valve sends quick play players to server (mainly, their own now). We should hopefully have enough of us to give the server what it needs to get completely full. What few custom maps are on our server can be downloaded while connected.

Download TF2 (FREE)


Day of Defeat:Source: 10:30 PM - 12 AM Eastern

This is always one of the most popular games at our LAN parties, and most already own it. If not, see the link below to buy/download from STEAM. There are also links to the custom maps on the server if you want to install them ahead of time. They will automatically download when connected to the server if the map comes up, but you will have to wait longer to play. The files should contain the dod folder, and all files inside that folder should get installed to this path of your STEAM install.

STEAM\SteamApps\common\Day of Defeat Source\dod

Download DoD:S ($10)



Mann vs. Machine (TF2): 12 AM - ? Eastern

This is the coop part of Team Fortress 2, so you only need to have Team Fortress 2 installed which is also free now through STEAM. We will have several servers available in case we have more than 6 of us who want to play at the time it comes up as that is the maximum for each server.  You will need to add the servers listed to your favorites list manually by IP address as they won't show up in a server list search. The servers will be up as of Friday.

Batman Franchise games 75% off on STEAM this weekend

(Posted on Friday March 28th, 2014 by Kramerika)

These are great games if you are a Batman fan, and even if not, they are still really fun as they focus more on stealth, gadgets, and hand-to-hand combat rather than the usual shoot-em-up.
