Freeping Gamers Ping!

Well, here it is... The new thread format.  I hope you all like it.
However, I do need some help getting it completed.

Format Changes:
1.  New Logo:  Suggestions are welcome... Please let me know if you have a better idea for the motto. 

2.  New thread frequency is now monthly, with gamer table updates on the fly as needed.
     All tables are now housed on my profile page with direct links to them in the thread,
     so the only time a new thread will be needed is when several new games have been added.
     Yes, its an extra click for you, but I think its worth having more timely table updates.

3.  Pinging frequency:  A global ping will be sent monthly relaying traditional info.
     Weekly pings (if warranted) will be sent to only those gamers affected by ongoing changes
     relevant to their games listed.  (i.e.  new gamers have been added to game x ping list)

4.  Game Site Links added:  Please check the gamesite links and let me know of any changes that are needed.

5.  Sequels and Expansion Packs:   Some games with sequels/expansions were previously combined to minimize thread clutter
     such as Call of Duty, City of Heroes/Villians, Diablo/D2, Medal of Honor, etc.   With this format, it is no longer an issue.
     I have already tried to segregate players as best I could, but I need your help to refine it and bring it up to date.
     Please check your listings, and let me know if I need to add or remove you to/from  a sequel or expansion table. 

6.  Voice Servers:   I have found that voice does add a lot to online gaming, so I've added a new
      column to the game tables specifically for voice server info. 
      Please let me know if you have any public voice servers you would like listed.  
 
7.   Because we are now a monthly thread, our exposure is reduced.  This makes ping referrals even more important.
      Hopefully, these upgrades will make the thread more attractive, but we still need to keep getting the word out.

Thank you for all your help!

Please welcome our newest  gamers!...

Outstanding sir. Your hard work is admired here. If you ever need help and don't mind schooling an IT guy a bit in the posting process, I can help.

Happy New Year to you to. Our family problems are playing out and I should be more around sooner than later. CU

The official site is www.counter-strike.net which covers both games. However if you want images, you will probably just have to do a google image search.

CSS is more popular among n00bs, but professionally, 1.6 is not going anywhere. Nor does it need any marketing, because it has the most loyal game fanbase ever.

"Cool... I havn't done leagueplay since Mechwarrior 2. You do vengeance?"

No, Its MW4 Mercs with 3 free patches by Mektek. New mechs, new maps, new weaps. MWL has league ladders for standard Team Battle foramts, as well as No Heat/Unlimited Ammo, King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, Rugby, Solaris Duels, and is just starting up another Planetary League cycle. League has been around for 3 years now. 60+ teams. Pretty cool. Also supports a BF1942 League.

"want on the list?"

Sure, pls add me to the ping list.

"Hey... maybe I should install it and get the mektek patches from MWL???"

No prob, order of install is:

PR1 Point one Release should have been installed first

Should go


PR1 =Microsoft
MP1 =Mektek
Mp1.1 =Mektek
MP2 =Mektek
MP2.1 =Mektek
MP2.1a =Mektek
MP3 =Mektek
MP 3.01 =Mektek

"There is a PR1 to MP2.1a patch that I would suggest using to avoid 4 installs and the potential problems that can come with them. Then just do the MP3 then MP3.01."- WB

BTW, if you don't mind, you can add me to Kingdom of Loathing and to Oblivion - no servers or aliases for either, that I know of.

Bacon Man told me last week not to pre-order Oblivion, since he got it for me for my birthday!

I bet you can add him to Oblivion too, since he might have ordered one for himself as well. But perhaps a ping is in order to confirm. :)

The thought of a gaming thread on FR never occurred to me but is a splendid idea. Congrats of firing one up!

I play Ultima Online, mostly on the Europa Shard. Haven't had very much oportunity to play since the Katrina bomb went off.

Thanks Nick...

CGVet58 was listed under Europa, and I couldn't find the game, so I dropped it from the list. Maybe this is what he meant.
Is the Europa Shard a UO game server?

EA Games, under license from Firaxis. It's the predecessor to the Civilization series. It's been discontinued (I believe), but still available on EBay. Judging from the prices the Alien Crossfire Expansion fetches, it's still somewhat popular, and certainly about as popular as a 1999 release can be.

You may list it if you wish, but seeing that this is my first visit to your thread, I don't even know what that would accomplish.

I add you to the ping list for that game upon your request...
Then, as everyone on the ping list gets the word out about this thread, it becomes well known enough in freeper land that anytime someone asks in other threads "anyone here play so and so game???", they will be quickly referred to here... maybe even by non-gamers.

Thats the idea anyway.

Heh... just searched on it, and I just realized you have solved the SMAC mystery for me!... thanks!

The answer to your original post is CGVet58.

He has been listed under SMAC for months now, and I couldn't find it, so I just dropped it from the list starting with this thread. (He hadn't responded to my post asking him what it was before I dropped it)

So, now i'll just put it back in and add you to it. Ok wit u?

Please do so. Can't hurt. The name of the original game is Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, and the expansion pack is Alien Crossfire, abbreviated as SMAC and SMACX. Thanks.

Yeah, Europa is one of many servers termed "shards".

Shards are part of the story line of Mondain's crystal being shattered into many segments, each containing a separate but identical world.

A subscriber can play any or all shards but each persona bust be developed over time and most only play one or two shards due to the time required to work up skills.

Technically, Civ1 and Civ2 preceded Alpha Centauri, but who's counting? I couldn't get into AC. I tried, but something was just missing. I adore Civ2 and MOO2. Maybe I'm odd.
