Title: The TS500 Returns!
Post by: [BTF]Jehar on June 15, 2017, 02:29:07 PM
I won't even count how many years it's been since the last one, but seeing Q2 has gotten the big 20, it's about damn time. Deets below.

Get in here!

Map: city64
Fraglimit: 500
Timelimit: none (usually takes about 90 minutes)
Gametype: Standard FFA, first to 500 wins

I haven't played a game like this with others for a long time, maybe since 2004 with Quake III Arena and a group on a LAN. I might as well try to be a part of it since a 20th event is only a once in a lifetime type of thing and I don't care how badly I will lose at it. It will be very enjoyable I'm sure. :)

Bad time for my gaming PC to be down, I'll see if I can stop in via other means.

Dunno if I'll be there or not. If I'm at home with free time, I'll hop in.

I also posted about this over on the QuakeOne forums. Maybe some of those folks will drop in.

Question: Will this be broadcast live on Twitch or something? I was gonna post a link to the live stream on the Q1 boards as well. I tried clicking the TastyspleenTV link both in Jehar's signature as well as at the top of the forums, but it kept wanting to download some file.
Title: Re: The TS500 Returns!
Post by: [BTF]Jehar on June 22, 2017, 06:33:54 AM
Yup!

http://twitch.tv/tastyspleentv as per usual. The site is undergoing some uh, maintenance, but the twitch page has been the de facto landing site for a while.
Title: Re: The TS500 Returns!
Post by: |iR|Focalor on June 22, 2017, 07:57:06 AM
10-4. Couple people from the Q1 boards say they'll join in.

I'm will hopefully be there.   I am taking my Q2 CD to work tomorrow to give to Dr. Bellows, he has not played in years, but hopefully he makes it also.

Yeah, don't use the original client. I would highly recommend just downloading it here:

I am not even sure what time it will be during my own time zone, I am GMT +10 which is Sydney Australia, but even then I probably shouldn't since my ping will not be all that great.

Would there be a way to play from my MAC?

UPDATE: The top post in this thread has been updated with details about the map, time zones, etc.


I am not even sure what time it will be during my own time zone, I am GMT +10 which is Sydney Australia, but even then I probably shouldn't since my ping will not be all that great.

Looks like it would be 10 AM (next day) in Sydney:

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/115495383286677512/327618984021196800/quake308.jpg)

Up and running on: tastyspleen.net:27999 ("GOTO TS500")

Note: Likely a few more entity tweaks in store before the final version tomorrow, but nothing major over what's already there right now.

My client keeps on saying I am not using anticheat even after adding the anticheat.dll to both the base and main game folder. I don't know what I am doing wrong and I even disabled most of my avast antivirus with no help. Also I am not sure if my client can be updated since all I downloaded was the Q2PRO linked in the OP.

Is this just showing up as a warning message? Or is it actually preventing you from joining the server?

Perhaps one needs to use the new client icon anti-cheat made in the quake dir? I couldn't get it to work either until Claire informed me it creates a new client icon. Click.

Big thanks to all who helped put the TS500 on, It was a blast  :bananaw00t:

I crashed mid way through and had to reconnect.  Console said my two frag counts will be added together  :notworthy:

I will still only be mid pack, but it is nice to see where I end up on the overall list.

Here's Jehar's tastycast twitch stream of the ts500!

A few minutes prior to the match, Jehar reads names of players on the server:

Thanks again guys for organizing, it was a blast!

I definitely need to practice on this map though. Couldn't get it figured out in time. Getting lost/stuck down in the hallways and catacombs was not helping  :bigcry:
