Hi all

Starcraft 2

SINS of a solar empire

Sup com 1FA ,2....if 2 works

Company of heroes

So who else is up for playing these, maybe sort out some mini competition or big fun games.

Thought I'd drum up some interest and make sure I don't miss out on any good RTS action.

A few of us usually try and get a game or 2 of Forged Alliance in over the space of the weekend. :)

Although most of us are fairly rusty and only play a few times a year at LANs. If you play them a lot you might not get much of a challenge!

I'm up for some FA, have been playing it a fair bit with some of the other [FTB] guys, would be good to put the skills to the test! =D SC2 still has crashing problems online, but can give it a go. :)

Like a certain character created by AA Milne, I am a bear with a very small brain and these games make it hurt. I'll stick to pushing tiny cart or playing F1 dodgems ;)

Is red alert 2 the one where it's first person to spam alien spaceships wins ? :P

CnC peaked at generals I reckon

So what version of FA are u FTB guys playing so I can sure to join in :)

That and anyone figure out how to get supcom 2 to work properly ? :)

Is Starcraft 2 at the LAN going to cause problems then.... I'm sure it worked ok before ?

Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun FTW!

SupCom 2 should be renamed Generic RTS Game 19

Starcraft 2 is a bit iffy, sometimes you can play seemlessly but others you might as well be playing on a 56k modem.

I wouldn't mind some Civ5, that can always be fun!

Remember SC2 doesn't have a LAN mode!

By that you mean Starcraft2, not Sup Com2, that does have a LAN mode :)

Dam it's £10 now, if your playing it a lot I may just get it at the LAN on steam and copy files across :) don't want to miss out on big SC FA games

On the subject of SC2 playing it at 56k modem speed it's still a load faster then most rts.... More zerglings !!!!!

And Civ 5 would be great to get a game of that, not sure it's technically RTS THOUGH :P

Tiberian sun would be awesome, except, you can't play it on win 7 as it uses the old IPX network protocol which win 7 removed.

Unless your swyft who still has xp.

The steam version is definatly different to the one I have.... If someone can tell me the actual patch or version number the "steam" one is running it would help.... Mine may just need patching

And we should also sort out a game of savage that was so much fun when we got that going at one of the LANs

Sup Com cannot be mixed between Retail and Steam.

We have tried before, but they just wont play nice together

I have a patch that translates the IPX LAN support for use over UDP. Basically, it's a wsock32.dll replacement DLL you drop into the games folder, and that's it. I used it at a mini-LAN and it works fine!

EDIT: patch HERE

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
