Mixtec and myself are considering organising a regular gathering of fellow Battlefield fans (and DC of course) for some friendly bouts. Looks like the first outing will be next week, if anyone else is interested post the best times for you at the moment it looks around 9-10pm GMT to start, but not sure which day.

It would be really great if we could try and get some sort of structure and strategy going perhaps even form a proper team **cough**CLAN**cough** :D

Anyhoo, if people are interested in joining the fray post here.

(There are planes in it btw:D )

We're going to start out just joining servers together, but if enough people are interested we may set up our own server. Desert Combat is played more online than BF42, and good jet and helicoptor pilots own the maps. But we will try and find maps with only a few people as crowded maps can be unforgiving to noobs. The idea is to have fun. We could try some team tactics together like attacking enemy bases together in a helicoptor, or capture the flag tactics, and alot of other stuff. For those of you really into BF42 mods, we could try some other good ones like Battlefield 1918 and Forgotten Hope. So we will post a time next week when we go on.

Thanks The Joker. I personally think Gamespy has a great buddy system for going on servers together that works like instant messaging. Add to that that everyone would be looking at the same server list on gamespy and could chat to eachother on in server list chat room. And Gamespy has a better list of servers than the ingame list as well as better access to mods.

I just found a game server browser that blows Gamespy out of the water. Its called All Seeing Eye, and you can download it here:
http://www.udpsoft.com/eye2/index.html
Finding servers for mods like Forgotten Hope is as easy as checking a box.
Simmer- Lets try this out before we announce a meeting time.

Also I want to mention a BF mod called Silent Heroes about a modern day Swedish invasion of Norway. As rediculous as that sounds it looks like a good sim. Check out these screenshots:

Mixtec,

Ok, software downloaded, including silent heros, nice find by the way, looks pretty good :cool:

Tonights out for me but tomorrow looks good so far. I'll try and give the software a go before hand.

Simmer- In all seeing eye, go to files>user profile and fill out the profile menu so I can find you in a buddy search. And lets use our Keymags names so everyone knows who everyone is. Then PM me when you have a time to meet and will give it a dry run to make sure everything works, maybe we could give Silent Heroes a shot first.

aj_march- I know what you mean about Battle of Britain, its very easy to stay out of AA by flying low since the AA is situated high on the cliffs. Give Forgotten Battles a try though, its a huge download, but the flight physics are very realistic and has better overall graphics than regular BF42.

I'd remove that post Joker, not sure they want that sort of behaviour here, just a friendly suggestion before the webby sees it. :)

Well it took a while to get ASE (All Seeing Eye in brevity from now on) figured out, and by the time we did, it was time for Simmer to turn in for the night. But for anyone who wants to join in, heres what you do. You have to enter the nickname of the person you want to enter in your buddy list into a player search found under tools>find player. The nickname has to be exact as partial name searches are not enabled for the free version of ASE. So if anyone wants to add me, just enter the name mixtec. The buddy search works also, but that can take up to a couple of hours to turn up a search.
I want to mention I tried out Silent Heroes and it was a good mod. I was disappointed to find there werent any gripens, but Im told those will be added to the mod later. But they had a very fine collection of tanks, vehicles and helicoptors.

whats wrong with my post ? 2 friends of mine are die hard CS fans and bought vietnam only to stop playing it after a few weeks , so i got their copies , and everyone who wanted the game has it so no point in selling and i thought by helping out few forum friends the keys would be of some use at least ....

Heres the latest on the playing BF42 mods online. Simmer and I found that the buddy system for free version of ASE is so disabled as to be unusable. So we are going to go with Gamespy, and that will mean we can pretty much only play DC. So if anyone wants to add me, just enter arquebus257WeaMag into the nickname. You access the buddy system by clicking on the little star in the upper right hand corner of window. I wont be on Gamespy alot as I will still mostly be on ASE as that has better access to mods like Forgotten Hope and Silent Heroes.

We'll be online tonight at around 9pm GMT

If you use Gamespy to locate us, I'll confirm my ID later as I can't remember it :o

Hmm, how about a CS clan thing? Can't wait until CS: Source comes out.

Google-I play alot of CS on Gamespy also, so go ahead and add me as a buddy if you want to go in on some maps with me. I usually play late evening US time. It will be interesting to see if CS gets ported to another engine once the source code is out.
