    k, I was talking to someone today about this lan... and they were talking about bringing thier speakers!!!

    Im not sure about this lan, but the clan center and UWALAN lans both stress NO speakers... Headphones only

    This is because someone would turn thier speakers so they can hear thier game, and the next will do the same as a result and so on... the end result = lotsa noise, no-one can hear thier game..

    I've emailed an enquiry about this just to be sure.. (it would be hella cool if i was wrong)

    better to know now than to rock up with speakers and not be able to use em eh? ;)

    I'll keep ya updated on the response...

    As far as I recall, it is slated to be headphones only, but at the same time I don't remember it being brought up at any of the POGS committee meetings.....

    In most cases at LANs it is loud enough with all the people screaming "STOP PICKING ON ME YO BIATCH!!!" and varoius other things, let alone haveing game noises blasting away aswell... :p

    Edit: Damn face codes not being what I remember!!!

    I would like to thank SJ for caning everyone at the LAN.... it made one of the POGS people who was bragging for weeks about how good he is shut his trap once and for all. I mean I was better than him, and Stinky was thrashing me, so I don't know where he got the idea he was good from.

    Thanks All fo coming....

    So would that be the guy who had to come into the room every time a match was over and give a blow by blow account of all the excuses as to why someone got him, or the guy who complains when someone is talking to a girl he fancies?
    Either way, I wish we were using real guns...

    Soz, being in a clan where good scores are to be shared, pressing the screengrab button at the end of a map is reflex action... ;)

    Well, I brought the CD's but my rental machine had no cd drive, which was annoying, particularly as Sith Witch and I also wanted to play Vampire: The Masquerade,
    anyway, I think we should have another OR lan night in the not to distant future,
    SJ, consider the gauntlet thrown down [face_devil]

    *looks at the gauntlet*

    hmmm, well you threw it there... pick up your own damn glove ;)
    Hey, I didnt say I would be challenging to beat. I just didnt know the hire computers didnt have cd drives.. But in the spirit of fun I'll accept your challenge.

    The guy I was talking about in the earlier posts has the nick Hilibilli (or something like that) on the score sheet that SJ posted.... look how much further ahead I am, and then double that for SJ.....

    I still want to know where he got the idea he was good from :)

    Good old screen grabs ay? Never let you down! :)

    Grizzly, what happen man??

    That guy only got 7 frags I thought you said he was good? Or does he reckon he was?

    Overall though it shows terrorist one in total score. So who's who? I mean some of them I can work out but who are the others, and how many people were there? Ay Yay Yay, so many questions! :)

    What happened?? I wandered into a game I have never played before, and tried to figure it out on the fly.... also Win ME is such a great gaming platform, it locks and freezes, or just drops you back to the desktop at random times :mad: especially during the only multiplayer game I have any experience at, Unreal Tournament.. didn't have much luck there either, due to a lack of practice cos Win ME doesn't like it.

    lol, Long live w2k! down with WinME!
    unfortunately, you cant play the original quake or duke nukem in w2k.. or any other dos based games.
    well you can.. but with no sound its kind of sucky..
    no sound due to the lameness of the dos prompt in 2k.. if theres anyway around that though...

    You can get a dos emulator but I dont play many games like that anymore. I wounldnt mind playing them again though...hmmmm

    Still Win2k Works for me so I might not change anything, I might get back luck twenty times over.

    Thats happen before :(

    Yes, I agree..
    I tried putting ME back on the other day to dual boot with W2k.. problem is, ME does something to the hd that makes it unreadable to any other OS..
    so w2k copied all the files on, restarted into dos then couldnt read the hd... smart one microsoft..
    Anyway.. after having ME crash about 6 or so times in an evening and finding that it has no support for P4's (stupid considering its one of the newest MS OS's) I decided, hell.. Now I remember why I changed to W2k... and re-ghosted my hd to it... ahh.. bliss... comps been on for 4 days straight, with no probs... :)
