A NOLF Game Night?

21 posts in this topic

So I don't get on as much as I'd like to anymore and today I was thinking it would be really cool to set up a time 1 night in thefuture that would work well for a lot of people. My idea is that we could have an event scheduled for a Friday or Saturday evening and invite as many people as we could to partake in this. Maybe make in invite via FB and give people who may not have the game, instructions on where to get it and how to set it up to play online. We could try and get new and old players to try playing it again or for the first time.

And even if no one new decides to join us, at least
1.) If they didn't know about the game, now they do
2.)We from the community could just have a community game night XD

Any thoughts? Does this sound lame? IDK lol

Great idea! I'm in! Of course!

I am waiting anyway and looking for players at 20:30 CET - but no one.

If you wanna play in the evenings think that 6pm in Pittsburg is midnight here and I may be sleeping already.

Maybe we can say fridays at 5pm and saturdays at 3pm Pitsburgh time?

OMG I totally forgot about time zones x___x I'm sorry!
Sadly I personally work during that time Friday but if we had one night where we tried inviting as many people as possible there's no reason why you still couldn't play around this time or earlier starting the party around you and I could just jump in later continuing the party around here LOL and maybe twice a month we could have a community game night around these times too :D just a thought to get people playing again and possible new traffic ^_^

when I get home today I can try to write a plan up.
I was thinking we could do the "massive invite" in August giving newbies a chance to learn the game and set it up.
And if you guys wanted an actual community night we could obviously just start that whenever XD

For some reason I could have swore I posted LOL sorry, guys it's been kinda hectic for me x____x
Anyway, here's what I had wrote up for a "big" meet meant to be posted to Facebook. If you would like me to change the time I can do that I just put 3:00 because that was suggested XD


"Hey guys! Us over at Unityhq.net are having a NOLF night August 22nd starting at 3:00pm EST filled with all the fun that could only come from the year 2000! Time to dust off your old copy of No One Lives Forever and fire it up!

Don’t have one? That’s fine we can show where to get a copy! Never played? ALSO FINE! You have time to learn (we’re all pretty chill so if you suck, THAT’S FINE TOO!)

“But wait…didn’t Gamespy shut down their servers?!”
YES! Gamespy has in fact died! BUT, we are a determined and resourceful community that has servers up just so you can continue to play online….you just have to download them …

Ok guys I'm so sorry for this but I don't think I'll be able to join my own event now -_____- My computer is pretty much past the point of fixing and I can't get a new comp yet T_T occasionally it'll let me do minor things but it freaks out when I try to play games or vids or certain programs and being online is like dial-up just trying to type T_T My disc drive is not working still and my comp will just randomly shut off, the graphics card is going and the motherboard is struggling too :( I'm sad to say idt I can host this T_T If someone else would like to try and host this, please do! I highly suggest you guys also do a consistent community game night though and hopefully I'll get a new comp soon and we can schedule one like this with the intention of reaching more people :)

I'm so sorry this has been terrible timing and I'm super bummed now T_T I'll do my best to keep you updated :/

 

again, I'M SO SORRY -__-
