LANParty at BoneRaks!
« on: October 15, 2008, 03:40:51 pm »
Good day all.
Spring is just too far away to wait for a LANparty. I am going to be hosting one this October 25Th at my place. It will be a little more retro, going way back to Unreal Tournament 2004. Also a little TrackMania Nations Forever to spice it up.
If anyones interested, give me a heads up, or just come on down.
I'll be setting up on Friday so everyone is welcomed to come and make it a longer LANparty.
Bring a sleeping bag and stay till Sunday!

So to sum it up.
Who: Everyone one I have gamed with at LANtabulous is welcomed
What: Unreal Tournament 2004 LANParty
Where: BoneRak's house in Lethbridge Alberta
When: October 25Th 2008.
Why: Old school LANParty.

So how much parking do you have and about how many ppl can attend..... I'll try to have a better idea next week if I'm able to make it    ???...
Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

I have 2 parking spots in the back and a street to park down in the front.
If 20 people came that would be getting a little crowded. Looking for 8-16 people.

I think I'm actually coming to this one if it's still going to happen.  UT2004 sounds good, but I'm afraid Trackmania is out for me as I won't let starforce copy protection anywhere near my machine.

I'm not sure about this one in particular but most games distributed on Steam have the same copy protection as the retail boxed version.  This is to prevent hackers from comparing the versions and using the differences to remove the copy protection.

Good day Nicao and epithanatios (Epi!!)
I do hope that both of you can make it.

I fired up my old server that I had sitting on the shelf for the last 3 years. It still had a working copy of the original Unreal Tournament... I think I better build a faster old server for UT2k4.

About the starforce... I installed the TMNations demo at another lanparty... I feel dirty now :(
I haven't looked yet to see if it uses starforce. And to think I still haven't installed "this game yet" because it has starforce.

Now that I think of it.

Grand Prize Tournament.

An unopened game of PARIAH !!!  >:D

Do you want me to throw together a server?

Also, do you know if there is going to be more than just the 4 of us?

I just fried my server last. It was made of old computer parts, and not enough ductape.
If you can bring down a working copy of Linux, I can still setup UT2k4 and get it ready for a transfer. Or I still have enough parts to put something together for the server.

Glad to see you coming down Zeus.
Looks like about 10 people so far.

Yea sure, I can bring down a server no problem.  Do you need X on it?

Make sure you have TAM setup, cuz TAM rocks.

I don't need X installed.
TAM does rock! Thanks I will get that setup too for a few games.

TAM = Counterstrike one life per level with Shockrifle sock combo's. Last one standing wins.

I got a server running. Athlon 64 3800+ I think it should be able to handle everyone just fine. Now to get the redirect to work.

Everyone feel free to drop in and say hi if you are not able to game this event.
