Perpetual Hosting / Perpetual [FD]

Post by Lightfoot » Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:03 pm

So...

It's too quiet out here for me not to start making noise.

My first thought is to host a perpetual game and listen for the join/radar beeps of incomings...which is up:

http://battlezone1.com/anet2/I76_Nitro_Pack.html

My second thought is to host a game with a "mission" and then see who's the first one to make it...like Purgatory in a Moth Truck...

:shock:

Input?

Well...the game is up. It's on a dedicated PC and I'm watching the server scopes in a tab on my primary PC.

If you join the game, I'll hear it, see it or I'm not here...

:D

Been busy; that actually sounds like a good idea, but IMO it could be improved somehow by having nightly meetings on the server.
Bug me over Steam if you wanna reach me.

Nitro is working! Good news :D
Do you have a technique to keep running a game on the background and being aware of someone joining? ALT TAB? Window mode? I use Win7

Woo! Dougie Two Saints in the hizzou!

The perpetual game is being hosted on the machine to my right. It used to be Mrs. Light's PC but I bought her a vastly superior laptop so it's essentially unused.

I have the audio turned up but the car turned off so I can pretty much hear the "join" beep if/when anyone decides to join.

It seems to crash overnight but since no one is playing that's not a problem (yet).

I'll keep the game running and my ears peeled. Hopefully a never ending, stable game will start drawing some more attention back here...but I'm not holding my breath.

17 years is a long time to hold out for a patch!

:lol:

The Perpetual [FD] game seems to be crashing off the server (but not out of the game) overnight on us.

I'll see if I can't figure it out...but in the meantime, why don't you guys jump in the game and pay Null Host [FD] a visit!

I've seen Kinyodas and someone took the time to .45 kill the host but aside from that it's been too quiet.

We know the patch works, we know it's a long weekend and we know you want to play.

:twisted:

Well kids, I'm shutting down the perpetual game for at least the weekend.

LA call and I won't be here to babysit the connection and reset it the requisite two times a day.

Besides, based on the 0 deaths and endless rolling and bumping of Null's Sovereign at Elimination Center no one is playing.

I'll catch you all on Monday.

That was me pushing you around the map. I also saw you rolling eerily back and forth - I thought you were messin' with me at first until I realized that's how it rolls. I stopped by from time to time but never seemed to catch you but once or twice.

I was hoping Tuesdays would be the 'game night'.

Anyway, I'll be looking next week. Hopefully we'll have a few on Tuesday.

LOL!

Anyway, there's at least two threads to check out regarding the patch...or you could just got to the downloads section and see what that gets you?
