Q2 15th anniversary FFA event, Friday Dec 7th, 8PM Central
« on: December 06, 2012, 04:04:44 PM »
Salutations!

sponge from id Software is organizing a Q2 FFA event for Q2's 15th anniversary, scheduled for tomorrow night, Friday Dec 7th, 8PM central time, on the TS500 server!

quake2://67.228.69.114:27999

Currently the plan is just a big FFA game. The DM maps are in the rotation by default, but if lots of folks show up we can switch to the *64 maps, or perhaps some of the more well-known single player maps.

Fucking.

Awesome.

Also, it's crazy to realize that Quake2 has been a part of my life for roughly 50% of it. I was 17 when Q2 came out, and I remember shelling out every penny I had for a P2-300 and a Rendition Verite 4MB so that I could pwn the LAN games at UMass the following autumn. Man, those were the days.

I bought Q2 on release day... I still remember doing so! I was 19 and now I'm 34. Scary to think about that!

I remember first trying to run it on a Cyrix 6x86 with a 1meg video card and a 1gig hard drive. 320x240 software mode... how I do NOT miss thee. ;)

I first played it on a PMMX 200 with a Trident video card in software mode.  Ran like crap.  I got a VooDoo 2 and WOW!  It jumped up in framerates, there were COLORS!

In college I ran it on some of their P2-600's with software mode.  I still got better framerates on my old PMMX 200 & VooDoo2.  :)

Servers running off the dorm provided machine plus sharing the server folder so anyone in campus could play on the server if they wanted.  Those were the Quake days.  :)

I had a pair of 12meg Voodoo2's around 1999. Now that was sweet, especially once I put them in the 800MHz Duron box I replaced my Cyrix with. A thing of beauty seeing Q2 charge along on those!

Of course then along came AGP and before you know it, I'm running on a 1300MHz Athlon with 512 megs of RAM and a Geforce 5200... the glory days were over, really!

Oh that's for sure! I don't miss the 400 pings of my dial-up days though!
