Do any/many PPRuNer's out their play Quake 3 online?

If so it might by fun for someone to set up an online server game for PPRuNe users. I think it might be somewhat cathartic to run around Brimstone Abbey laying waste to 'favourite' posters with a plasma rifle... :E

As a first step we could just arrange to log onto one of the large commercial servers out there on a certain date and time using our PPRuNe usernames...

Just a thought,

Q3 is sooo passe' (?) these days! ;) UT2004 or Far Cry might be the go!:ok:

We could create a Draper level, where it's one loooong corridor with no exits...and seemingly...no end!:uhoh:

If everyone had a computer that could handle Far Cry or UT2004, I would go with those. Unfortunately not everyone has a powerful enough computer so something a little older may be better. Halo isn't bad either, but again it will bring many computers to their knees.

Far Cry... I'm there... in a few days ;)
when I get the full version...

I used to be tha sh*t playin Unreal with the guys workin at a major magazinepublisher in Scandinavia... but I think my abilities to dodge bullets and and rockets has somewhat diminished since then...

But if you need canonfodder... I'm ready to play :ok:

"Quake 3? Pray tell, what is Quake 3??":confused:

Don't even know if mine can handle them goates, but I've seen both of them running on a set that can & they both look great.

The Q3 engine has still got lots of life in it I suppose, just look at Call of Duty.

Perhaps we're going down the wrong path here. We need to mod FS2004 & pop a few Sidewinders on some commercial jets..."No, Tower, I don't think I will follow that company 737...BANG!!":E

MS combat flight simulator... you can play that on line..

Whose got a copy? (ashamed to admit I have)

How about it? Can think of a few I'd like to unleash a load on :)

That sounds like fun.
Only no dawn patrols, I don't do dawns no more.

Falcon 4 is a good flight sim if you want to blow each other out of the sky. IL-2 Sturmovik is another great WWII sim.

I'm up for Quake 3 if that's what everyone else has. We could call it the Pprune Quake Bash.

chuckT - I'm almost finished the single and love it. It takes a littel while etting used to how smart the AI is though. At times it can be downright scary. I hope you have a fast system though, as it is very demanding.

What about Medal of Honor? That'll run on most machines these days and is excellent fun.

I got Far Cry the other day - great game, but my poor old graphics card breaks out in a sweat just thinking about running the thing. A timely reminder that Half Life 2 and Doom 3 are out 'soon' and will also require a new card.

I don't have any of the Quakes or Unreal Tournaments - never really been my sort of thing, but I'd be up for some Medal of Honor (Honour - damn yankees!) or maybe one of the Half Life mods (Counterstrike?)

I am not playing first person shooters these days, though I used to love them

I also liked Aces High from Hitechcreations.com and Warbirds, but these days its all about Online poker. Gaming for fun and profit.

I propose a pprune poker tournement. We could probably set it up with one of the online casino's to have a private tournment and even take a rake for the pprune fund.

Aha - Wino proposes something he will undoubtedly spank us all at!

I'd rather meet you at ten virtual yards with my trusty BAR!

I'd be up for giving Counter Strike a go, starting to get the hang of it at last!


21st Apr 2004, 21:03
Quake3, MOH, Half Life, Counter Strike even, count me in, but poker?? Sorry Wino, I want to see frags.

21st Apr 2004, 21:10
I agree with digidave, the more frags, the better. Poker isn't bad, but it's not quite the same as hitting someone with a rocket. Sniper rifles are even more fun... :E

If it's a compatability issue, then we can all play multiplayer solitaire!

My only real problem is connection speeds. My steam driven, 56k modem is a bit ordinary in the ping stakes!:(

Dunno bout that folks,

Taking a few people's money here that have pissed me off would be Waaaaaay more satisfying than a virtual death...
