Fraggers,

just wanted to say hi to everyone and thanks for the opportunity to join in all the mutual fragging that has been going on :-)

I also want to introduce myself (and hopefully imprint the name SPINDLE in your memories) as I have been connecting for quite a while now but I still get the inevitable "are you new to TM?" everytime I join a game!

Anyway, thanks to harmless and bamzippow for addons sent recently

and thanks also to paranor, capnjack and teulk yesterday for an enjoyable CTF - it is good to see fraggers getting into to CTF at last - sorry I had to disconnect abrubtly, something was burning in the kitchen!

One question - are there any DDM matches that are not at like 2am european time (ie 8pm EST)?? Would love to join one one day. I notice that a lot of players are on line like at 3am EST which means either:-
1 - they do not need to sleep
2 - they prefer to frag than to sleep (more likely)
in any case it seems there is a great demand for DDMs at that time - what do you think??

adios amoebos...

Hi again! I try to play at lunch time so maybe we'll see more of each other.

Did you get the "master client" from those two clowns, I mean players?

There is/was a EURO DDM but someone else will have to tell you when - I don't know.

Hey Spindle,

Welcome to the forums! Glad to hear you liked the files!

As for you Paranor, guess I'll have to make a "Paranor" tank with yer goobie picture on it! I'm thinking of the clown ice cream van from the Twisted Metal series. Hmmm, that might be a pretty good idea...

Paranor,

You should be able to find it in the Tools section on the left side. It's the 12th item under that title. Click it and it should download. Install it and you should be able to see if anyone's on the servers and which servers are up. But don't connect to a game with it or leave it running when you fire up Tread Marks as it will crash you out!

There's also a ton of neat tools, proggies, links, and tutorials here, too! Check it out...

lol, I'm one of the players to blame.

I asked Spindle last night if he was a newb and apparently I've played with him before. Once you post on the bboard though the name does get imprinted though.

I don't know if the Euro DDM is still going on.I think it was at 4 or 3pm EST on Sunday.
Someone will have to come and clarify that.

I'm probablly another one that asks if you are new.If I don't reconize the name I ask sometimes.Not to make fun but to welcome to TM

thanks all for the welcomes and extra links to resources and the euro ddm time

there are some great mods out there - but driving around inside dnx-matrix's eyeball in a camaro letting off nukes is kinda weird, fun and disconcerting all at the same time :-)

bye for now
see you online

Hideho Spindle,
I saw the title of your post and thought that maybe we had a relative of GA joining us.

Welcome Spindle. I'm relatively new to TM as well. I have been online on Sunday evenings but I did not know/realise that there was a formal DDM running - I was just aware that I got the sh1t kicked out of me fiercely
If anyone has definite information on a "European DDM", it might be useful to start a new thread with details of time, server, mods, etc..

Spindle,
GA is known for sying things in much the same way as you did in your title. Much of the time he loses me half way through a post, and I haave never considered myself especially dense either. You on the other hand I was able to folow with out any touble, so it was only the similarity to his posts that caused that comment.
