finally! a well-deserved long weekend!
i'll be busy most of the weekend, but want to plan on a few breaks to play MP TM.

since i don't think that i'll have the full version before then, i need to know if the master server will still recognize the old demo and the orig. full version?

also, does anyone else plan on being online at any particular time?

let me know! i need to plan ahead...

Can't be online except possibly Wed night or Sun night assuming I get my desktop working...

Just wish people have the new full version...I'm going to need some multiplayer screenshots with the new HUD...

As for the master server...I believe there is going to be an overlap time period durring which nothing will be blocked...but the full version's only going to be getting into stores next week at the earliest...so I'll have to ask Tom - so I'll have an answer tonight (or if someone else at LDA posts before then...)

I still don't have the full version. (even the old)
so I'll be on the demo servers, most likely Sheldon's Death server.
I WANT THE FULL VERSION! then I can make some REALLY cool weapons. (Yea, I did figure out how to add weapons, and make my own with the demo, still want the full version though, and I won't say how I did it, but I didn't edit anything to do it).

I know I won't be able to play Sat...unless you count a 266MHz laptop that has to run in software mode at 320x240 res windowized only a computer that can run TM

Almost in the same boat RC, with my 300MHz compaq laptop in software mode, but I can manage fullscreen 512x384 res. I turn basically everything else down low, or off, and I can swing my turret a few degrees to just manage to see who's fragging me ... again.

But, I'll try to be there! Which server?

i dunno yet... with my 56k modem & shaky ISP, i usually get the best ping & min. lag at NGI. (which is where i usually like to play anyway, 'cause there aren't any mods. and the newbies are fun to mess with, too )

and i hear ya, synack - i played TM in software mode for 2 months, i liked it so much!

Ahh, I remember Peeeto's legendary problems getting that TNT2 working

Even my uber-box (700mhz Athlon) can't handle software mode!

sounds like I have things to look forward to.

I get the feeling that software-mode is ... like ... lame?

*sigh* I have so much to learn. :-) Please be patient with me.

Don't know yet...I have my vid card working now but I had to physically remove the sound card...IRQ conflict. Now I just need to try and get the sound card working...

If I play Wed it will be LATE Wed evening only...I am elsewhere early Wed evening...

I know I can't play Saturday. Wed late night and Sunday evening are the only 2 possibilities. However it appears now I may be able to play mid day Wed (tomorrow) for much of the day...my off and on again full time temp position is going off again it seems so I'll have time to devote to TM and LDA tomorrow...but I won't know for sure for about 15 mins...depends on if something needs fixing and if I can't finish it today if it does...

Oh - and Kaeto - I'm a bit out of practice...haven't played much in 6 months...so I might not be quite the challenge you're looking for...gotta reinstall the old Sabot ent so I can get used to the feel of the tank on my new vid card...I have the new one installed now so I could write up that Chages faq on my site...

Seems I'm going to be off work tomorrow so I'll be able to devote more time to trying out TM on my new vid card - and getting my sound card working...
