    OK folks, here's the deal. There have been numerous attempts to fuel interest in regular X-Wing Alliance games, like we have for JK, but none have really come to much.

    Myself and SithForceLord are avid fans of the game, and seeing how successful JK has become again lately, we'd like to see XWA getting some time in too! Obviously any games would not be scheduled against the existing JK games, so that enthusiasts of both games (SFL and myself included) can do both.

    Anyway, I have been informed that some of the reason that XWA never really took off (no pun intended) is due to technical difficulties, concerning number of players. Therefore we would be grateful if anyone would like to help us with testing, seeing if we run into difficulties and finding ways around them. If all goes well, we could get regular games going in a fortnight or less! :D

    So if anyone wants to help us out, then please ICQ me on 125958692, my ID is 'The ├é┬Ândividual'. Alternatively you can PM me. Even if you aren't able to help us with the testing, but would like to join in the games, then please let us know here in the thread what times are good for you to play, etc.

    Guess that's about it, hope it all works out!

    Come on SFL, throw your hand in!

    Same with me and SFL. However, if this is to take off (pun intended) then we want as many people as possible to join - we can split into separate games like we sometimes do at JK if need be.

    We may have to have seperates games for the cable people and the 56k people. Count me in to the 56k games :)

    Can we officially call ourselves Nerf Squadron yet? :)

    By the way- don't trust AA if he tries to give you any game modifications ;) tee-hee

    First, let's get some members! For now we'll just be the JC.N GL XWA Wing. I like Nerf Squadron though, that'll be a good choice for name when we eventually get organised!

    SFL, you wanna do a ladder system for us? That'd be cool!

    This is great! :)

    I think that in addition to a ladder system we should have team battles, and challenges where we can take 2 of the mediocre players against the best...stuff like that!

    Someone care to assign us numbers so we have an accurate count of who is 'in'?

    So far we have:

    Darth Hannibal
    SFL
    AA (I assume ur in, dude)
    Terra

    Before we do anything organisational, I want to make sure we're not going to run into any technical problems. SFL and me are going to play tonite, if anyone else wants to help us 'test' (read: play :) ) then let us know.

    This will be after the JK game.

    Not sure, the JK game starts at 9pm EST (2am GMT, my time - 1pm New Zealand time) and they last for a while, usually. Could be 2-3 hours after that that we get down to XWA (lucky I'm nocturnal!)

    I'll post here when we're all ready, how's that? Also, it's be REALLY helpful if you could get yourself on ICQ, so we can all communicate easier. If you already are, then please contact me at the number above.

    I second that AA, everone should have the 2.02 upgrade. Won't take long to get.

    On the subject of other mods, best not really. When we're organised we can try to get the same options files, etc, but for now while we're testing, let's just use the vanilla game, how it comes on the CD.

    When we're established we can sort out which mods we'll have, so we're all compatible no hassle.

    Let's start with a cooperative mission, I designed a nice one where we take on a Star Destroyer and a wing of fighters, Ace level (I can handle this one alone without being destroyed, so together we should be wicked!)

    If this results in being too slow, then we'll downsize until we find something suitable. That's the whole idea of the testing!

    I'll probably host the first one, so no need to swap any files or anything.

    ICQ! ICQ! ICQ!

    Sorry to be bossy, but I've tried out MSN and AIM, and I found neither to be as stable or reliable as ICQ. Most of the likely candidates for the Wing have ICQ, sorry.

    We could have an Imperial and Rebel sub-squadrons, for example, Imperial zealots (like myself ;)) would always fight in Imperial craft against the Rebel scum :)D) and the Rebel scum would fight against the glorious Imperials, and occaisonlaly we could have Imperial duke outs, where everyone flies an Imperial craft, and Rebel duke outs, where everyone flies Rebel craft. And, perhaps sometime the members of the subsquadrons would switch sides for a day, so they know how to kick Imperial butt in Rebel craft and visa versa :)
