Not a huge deal in terms of gameplay, but yesterday evening saw myself, Lara Lover and xMryax all playing our way through TR3 while chatting on Skype at the same time! :jmp:

We've just finished Jungle, and will aim for one level per "session".
Hopefully we'll do the same thing (or very similer) with Legend.

Has anyone else done co-operative gaming like this before? (I'm not counting co-operative online gaming)

Sorry if I'm sounding banal, but I think it's exciting! ;) :p

Thank you Skype! :jmp: :jmp:

It's like messenger, yeah.
But through Skype, you can talk for real, if you have a microphone and headphones. It's a lot of fun :D

Skype is fantastic :tmb: You can ring up and chat over any and all Skype-enabled computers for free, anytime. You can even make calls to land lines or mobile numbers (although this is charged, just as a normal phone call would be).

You can also chat in the traditional way (typing) and use webcams with Skype. I love it :jmp:

Yeah actually there should be a cooperation mode for TR. That would be cool! With special levels created for co-op of course!
It must be done well then, because it could also spoil the whole thing. BUt it can turn out pretty good (look at splinter cell, I often did it with my brother)

Whoo! T'was so much fun! :D Must....Play...Next...Level! ^__^

EDIT: LOL Jen :vlol:

But were you typing or chatting online?
:)
It'd be cool to do something like that :D

Greenkey2
20-03-06, 19:58
@ Fourballs: we were actually talking over microphones, just like chatting on a phone. The thing with Skype is that it's a digital system, so the sound is far far clearer than a normal phone. It sounds like the people are standing right next to you :D

Alrighty today we reached Temple Ruins which is in India ^_^ We're not done yet but we reached half of the level and we'll finish the rest of it tomorrow during to sickness problems, chatting problems, crashing problems, hunger prooblems and the whole package of problems!

Lara Lover
20-03-06, 20:01
Sorry guys.

Wow that sounds really fun! Maybe you could have more people join in? :p

20-03-06, 20:03
Dont feel bad, Kyle ^_^

Yes Jen, that too! :D

We'll keep you guys up to date when we continue tomorrow, I also took a few screens while playing if you guys would like to see any :)

MattTR: We're just walking through each other and playing it over the microphone xD

Greenkey2
20-03-06, 20:10
@ MattTR: Skype can host a conference of up to five people at a time :wve:

Have you thought about using Skype Video and pointing your WebCams to the screen so you can see progress?

Greenkey2
20-03-06, 20:49
:jmp:

I'm dreading doing really fast, technically challenging levels like Area 51 and RX Tech Mines over Skype. Probably won't be able to hear anything but screaming "OH NO SHE'S DIED AGAIN!" and "OHDAMNOHDAMN now I'm REALLY gonna die!" :eek: :vlol:

20-03-06, 20:50
Well my PC would crash and go nutty so...Naw I dont think so XD

lol a very common problem :P

20-03-06, 22:29
LOL! This must be funny! I have never tried that!!

Isn't it confusing hearing voices, Lara, the background sound, the Secret sound and Lara's footsteps at the same time? :D

Belfastard

I want to join in this! Sounds fantastic! Really good idea. Who came up with it? :yah:

Yeah...I know.
And you don't have to hold the phone to your head to hear others and talk to them.
Awesome :D
*feels jealous over Greenkey, Myra and Lara Lover, because doesn't have TR:3 to join in :( *

Nope. We disable the sound :tmb:

It's very good. People should give it ago. Elen do you have a mic?

You could join in if you want. :tmb:

Skype can have up to five people (4 + host) at a time on a conference.

So far there are three people (myself - the host, Myra and Lara Lover). If you would like to fill either of the two vacent places here is what you need:

*TR3 (easiest on PC - or have the console right next to your computer) up to Temple Ruins. We'll keep you informed of our progress so you can see what level we are playing.

*Skype - please contact either myelf, Myra or Lara Lover to exchange skype details.

*Headset and/or microphone.

*to be avalible between 6pm and 9pm GMT

Webcams are completely optional for chatting :wve: See you around!

Lara Lover
21-03-06, 09:35
Yes. People can join if they want. So, if you want to PM me, Myra or Greenkey2.
