LAN Party for April
« on: March 26, 2004, 12:53:06 pm »
Well everyone,
its starting to get nice and sunny out and i know ppl will be farming soon or out getting ready to go camping. i would like to organize a LAN party for April. i would need to know who all would be interested in coming out. Dwayne has informed me of a place in Vulcan that we can hold it. i don't know when to have it though. I've attached a poll here so please place a vote for when you would like to have the LAN Party. please reply back and let me know if you can or want to come. I will follow up with the costs involved. the more people that show up. the cheaper it is. of course we will be having pizza. it will be the sat of that weekend or if the long weekend works possibly the friday or sat. please let me know what is best. please respond ASAP. the sooner you respond the sooner we can plan things.
Thanks for your time

If we have a LAN, I'd be up for a new game such as BF:Vietnam or UT2004.  Let's break the rut and play something new and different.  I can provide a Linux server for either of the two games listed above.

The games i had in mind was UT2004 or UT2K3 and DC. i wasn't sure about having UT2K4 and BF:Vietnam, was b/c they are too new of a game and not many ppl will have them. it sucks having to go around around with burnt copies and cd gen for everyone that doesn't have it. i figured that one more LAN of the old would be fine and maybe after the summer once everyone has the new games and has had a chance to actually try them and maybe be half good at them that maybe then we would play them!
so right now i was thinking UT2K3 and DC and maybe even regular BF:1942.
i was thinking that D-man would bring his server and that way we can use TS if they so choose. i know not everyone has gamevoice so this way it would be much more fun!
again people there are alot of those just reading this thread. please let me know your opinions. the only way i'll know whats going on is if your reply! thanks for your time.

I would be amenable to UT2004, bfvet, or bfdc.  I don't think I'd come for ut2003, I played that game out pretty much, no fun left in it.  However I think that the vehicles add a lot of new gameplay to ut2004.

I Thought that i should post on here and let ppl that this is also a farming area and some ppl could be getting out in the fields, as I'm one of them, those rocks still need to be picked lol. So as for now i will try to come and play ut2004 on the weekend of the 17 ( if this is the date) ...  :-\

The earlier the better.  We just got out some machinery today, and it looks like the LAN might be hosted out here on the farm.  If so, I'd like to get it going so I don't have to set up, seed all day, then game up after 10:00pm. . . If I have to I will though. . . It's been a while since I Lanned.

We could do the BBQ, or run in for pizza.  We don't have meat for hamburgers right now. (the freezer's empty) So it might be just as easy to head into town for pizza.

If you all want to bring smokie's and such, we can sure cook it out here.

I still think that we should setup a deal like the last lan party 10 bucks a head seems fair dont it?  5 bucks for the hosts and 5 bucks for pizza or other food. Whats ppl think??

Well for me the date is going to be the biggest issue, as well as what we are playing. I'm not really a fan of playing 3 games, just because you would just get into one and then switch.

Once we figure a date out I will be able to figure out if I can make it
