Today's fun ddm is team racing. This would be a perfect time to see if Clan Racing would be a cool thing to try. So...I will see if the GA/TC/Dudymas are available to try out clan racing.

But remember, clan racing will be a DDM in racing. There will be more fragging then what the true racing fan would like. But it seems that the team placement in a race is determined by not who crosses the finish line but by the position of all the teammate in the race. So, in a sense, it is all about racing. Anyone who does not race and just ddm's the race will cost the team in the rankings.

So, I will see you there.

Sure! Sounds like a great idea!

The only problem is that I'm without a windows computer for the second. I'll try to get that fixxed pretty fast here, tho. *nabs XP disk and crosses fingers*
Any of you know any good tips for installing windows on a mac?
XD

Windows on a Mac? Grab Parallels software. It nicely treats your dual-core processor as a single 1-core processor for Windows, effectively doubling the speed of windows apps not coded for multi-threading :)

It's still in the Beta, so it's free for now. Once it goes live, you'll have to pay $40 or $80 (depending on whether you order it before or after it leaves the Beta period).

Otherwise, windows on a Mac is easy :)

Alternatively you can use Boot Camp and reboot the thing every time to switch. Not my recommendation.

PS - see you all tonight!

Fun fun.

I think we need some rules about you have to stay on the course and try to race - blockers can be problems for clan games - as we found out doing it :p

We just sat blocking the start for our racer to make it home :D

I think I was the one that matter-bombed the start :twisted:

I need to run a few races in single player mode to figure out how this would work. But it was fun...too much fun. We will have to do it agian.

Well, I am thinking of really doing this ...this year...LOL. No seriously, let's say 3 on a team, full rutting, but no Chaos. The 1st one across will win the race for your team. The reason for 3 on a team is to keep them small so that it is not possible to have 1/2 of your team not race and just camp.

The best strategy would be to have all your teammate to race. Camping will stop a few but not everyone. There would be no holding back on fragging a tank. You can frag a tank into mirror land if you like.

So instead of the racing on Sunday it would be clan racing.

Let me know what you all think.
