Galactic Event IV (D2X-XL multiplayer event)

Postby Hawkins » Tue Mar 06, 2012 12:20 pm

The time has been set at 21:00 UTC (no DST! so calculate accordingly) Saturday, March 10th, 2012. We are goin' to start with ACAT-XL in the pack below to start gathering players, and when enough show up we will move to more orchestrated games like CTF+. It will continue as long as people are around and willing to play.

Level set: http://www.descent2.de/files/missions/12plus-player-maps.7z*

*It is pre-compiled with standard lightmap data, so for quick joining, you might need to set your lighting to "high" and your lightmap quality to "standard" (it will take care of the other lighting options at this moderate setting).

It makes me so happy to see people still organizing these events. Diedel and I worked closely to bring the first Galactic Event to everyone, and I had no idea they still went on while I was away...

I'll be there.

Oh, and if anyone wants to help teach me how to play again, I'll be hanging around in the Steam group chat room.

I'd be happy to this afternoon but I can't host.

No worries, I can host as long as my internet isn't being heavily used. I share it with quite a few people, so sometimes they feel like they want to download a 5 GB file and I can't stop them ;) But I'm capable of hosting. Currently, I'm still playing around with settings to get the game to run as smooth as I want it too anyway...

People... In this event, 12+ player games are planned. In that sense, I hardly think we will need more than one host. And I think we already got one.
:laola:
That is for Saturday's event. For casual play, yeah...

No I was responding to Sykes' post saying he's open to a game with someone before the event.

Is the game still running? Ended? Not started yet?

Starts in 3 hours. I'm in the chat room trying to get the debug version so I can pin down this crash before the event.

I'm back but in no shape to play. Probably gonna crash. Good to see this event worked for testing. Looking forward to future events.
