Heya everyone!

I will be organizing a little Christmas Party later on this evening. I know its been short notice, but I have been busy setting everything up.

I will be setting up an online radio station with lots of Christmas music to get yourselves in the spirit (plus some good old Tomb Raider music), an UT2004 match will also be operating for everyone to have a great time and also I was thinking about having an IRC channel just for the occasion!

There will also be some competitions going on also with some special prizes for the winners :D

It will be on tonight at 9pm GMT. I hope people come and have some fun.

Special thanks to Justin and Gecko - This wouldn't be as special without them.

It's 9 PM here in Australia right now, and we're 11 hours ahead of GMT, so I'll have to wait 11 hours then. So, tomorrow at 10 AM, then, if I'm not mistaken.

Sounds good! What's an Irc channel btw? :D

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 10:01
Sounds good! What's an Irc channel btw? :D

Its a chat room thing.. But I'm not sure about it yet. The mods aren't overally keen on the idea.

And I am currently testing the online radio and all is working. So it should be good!

Rivendell
23-12-06, 10:02
Excellent, I'll look forward to it!

jarhead

Its an online party. I will be having an after Christmas party anyway for people that cannot attend it (probably a new year party).

Spread the word peeps! :D

I prefer NEW YEAR PARTY than CHRISTMAS

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 10:43
I have decided that the radio will be on for roughly an hour. Then after which I will be playing UT2004.

The UT2004 server will still be on at 9pm but I won't be connecting until about 10pm. I cannot really play UT2004 while streaming the radio at the same time.. It would rape my connection. :p

Lavinder
23-12-06, 13:12
I'll wear the terribly expensive black dress and awful tinsel in my hair, and be the one walking around constantly with a glass of champaign..

Mistletoe anyone?

da tomb raider!
23-12-06, 13:15
Sounds like fun, but I don't think I'll be able to make it... :(

Lenochka
23-12-06, 15:38
I have like 3 Christmas parties today :S
so i don't think i will be there
... Come on now... continue without me, I know the party will be lacking without me but it could still be a little fun i guess :tea: :p

rika2
23-12-06, 15:51
so the party will be on this site?

UNDERTAKER
23-12-06, 16:18
It wouldn't be a party without the old Deadman! So I'll definately be here! :D

Apofiss
23-12-06, 16:20

danitiwa
23-12-06, 16:21
WOOT GUYS! That sounds so cool! Maybe you could add a xmas hat on the lara at the top? Or deck the site with red bands, little xmas trees and stuff?

Hey people, anyone who wants to join in Unreal Tournament with us can download the demo from here (http://www.unrealtournament.com/ut2004/downloads.html). If you have a broadband connection, you'll have it downloaded and installed with plenty time to spare before we start playing. :tmb:

The more folk who join the game, the more fun it'll be. :jmp:

Meh -_-

danitiwa
23-12-06, 17:20
Geck, I just tried the Tournament thingy, I don't like it much, it's too fast for me. Plus I couldn't even find the ****ing action button! :hea:

Geck-o-Lizard
23-12-06, 17:25
Action button? It's simpler than that. Basically it's left (a), right (d), back (s), forwards (w), jump (space), fire (left click), and alt fire (right click).

But yeah it is pretty fast. That's why I like it. :whi:

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 17:28
Its not that fast.. Not until Geck comes on kicking everyones ass anyway! :D

And Undertaker, where ya been hiding? Haven't seen ya for ages!

Rivendell
23-12-06, 17:32
Thanks for the Demo link Geck! :tmb:

I assume the demo players will be able to play along with the real-gamers ?

Yup, it will be a demo server. This then allows anybody to download it and join in the fun :D

What is UT about?

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 17:40
What is UT about?

http://www.unrealtournament.com/
(http://www.unrealtournament.com/)
Its just basically an online FPS. Doesn't really have a storyline or anything, the single player mode is where you just play in a tournament and gain higher ranks. It's a great game though! :D

Jamie.

Natla'd
23-12-06, 17:58
Sounds great...I will try and be there! :D

Now to downloaded UT2004...btw, I think you should explain in the first post what that is, because I had no idea until I read this last page or so!

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 17:59
The reason I didn't was because quite a few folk already play on the forums and we have games quite often, so I only really expected the people who knew about it to join in.

:D

Natla'd
23-12-06, 18:04
Oh, right...so, will there be a UT thing going on and a IRC chatroom? And something on this forum? Or is the whole party on UT?

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 18:06
The party will mainly be on the forums/chat room. I am setting up the IRC channel now.

The UT2004 is just an extra thing for everyone to enjoy. The party is everywhere I suppose.. lol

Natla'd
23-12-06, 18:09
LOL! I like it. Multi-level party. ;)

Nevertheless, I'm going to get UT2004 as well, for the sheer hell of it.

Alive_and_Funky
23-12-06, 18:16
Thanks for the party, Jamie. I'm sure it'll be a real blast. :D

What time is the UT2004 match going to be on?

jamieoliver22
23-12-06, 18:19
What time is the UT2004 match going to be on?

9pm, the same time the radio and IRC will be on. But the radio will be ending at 10pm so I suggest you listen to that first.

The UT2004 match and IRC will be operating for the rest of the night, until late.


EDIT: The IRC channel is up and running. When you join later, don't be surprised if you see someone called [pC]Santa... Thats my nick for the festive season :D

Jamie.

Chris:


Copy the IP address from the thread, and remember what the password is.
Start up UT, and click on "Join Game" on the main menu screen.
Next, click on "Internet", the very last tab of the row of tabs along the top of the screen.
Right click anywhere on the list of servers there and select "Open IP" from the right-click menu.
Enter the IP address you copied into the box you now see.
Enter the password.
