Thanks to DNX Cementry hosting DMF, the GA server can be up again. Will be going between racing with only the mass driver and single weapon practice. Only 4 people will be allow on at anyone time. Otherwise it gets too laggy for the DSL connection. And Killers log scan is up on it.

The racing with only the mass driver is a favorite of the GA LAN parties. You get to kick the tank and the battlefield does not get damaged too badly. The races are only 2 laps with stock maps.

Sometimes, I will put up the single weapon server. This will allow people to practice learning the different attributes of the weapons. I will also match 2 weapons against each other people can practice. A good 2 weapon match would be the flamer against the swarmers. Again only stock maps for 10 minutes. Remember, it is only for practice.

If there any, questions or comments, post them here. thx.

I have forgotten how much fun it is to just race. Hey, if you find yourself in the lead, take practice shots at the race markers or trees, just to practice your aim. See you there.

Good stuff, 666! Just out of curiousity, does Killer's stats consider races and the number of laps or the place you finish? Just wondering...

Nope...I forgot that. He said that he would work on it when the race up gets. I wonder how that stats look now?

People, it is too much fun with just the mass driver as the only weapon. Was on with Corpse, Jon, and me and sometimes we don't get to finish the race because we end up shooting each other earning frequent flyer miles. It's too much fun!

The scariest part is being in the lead. Here you are racing at full tilt...sliding through the gates with lasers dancing all over you. Never knowing when one will land and send you flying. It is teeth clenching fun.

And all through the racing I am moving in my chair sliding with the tank.

Well the racing is just too good to change it any time soon.

When there, practice racing backwards. A great skill that always comes in handy.

And I forgot, the starting gate post are different for each map...and very cool looking.

See you there.

We noticed PINGS OF < 100 for on line players, so we have allowed additional players to connect. If you notice any performance problems, please let either 666 or myself know. The mass driver was chosen by 666 as the weapon of choice as it is non-deformational and a heck of a lot of fun to be able to boot racing tanks out of your way

Well, guess what happens when people start to get tired of racing.

They just punt each other.

Don't want to drop names...elbacsari...er did not mean to say the ...Bob...opps said it again. Actually, Bob was not bad...just the elpaso guy/gal was easily irratated almost irrational...if you know what I mean.

This always happens at the LAN parties. Maybe what I will have to do is do teams of 2 players. That way someone can ride shot gun and protect the other.

You might want to consider just going with the pea shooter and no special weapons. One good hit from the mass driver and you're out of the race. Then, you might decide to make sure the person that hit you is out of the race as well. Then you might decide to punt someone else out of the race. It's a vicious cycle. :^)

The heavy flamer might be good. It has no kick but will slow your opponent down. It's not as fun as the mass driver of course.
