* Yarrr and to all of ya pirate dogs in the Irregulars, you can plunder any thing bigger than frigate- for this is the endless ocean lads, ye be careful out thar! ;)

I know we do not have a server, but the master server for North America and Europe is up and running smoothly- even after relic was sold by Sierra. I cannot put a date on when, but I know that once I get some names who has the game, then I will decide on the times.

You could try talking to some of the IHS SLs and having them spread the word of this event as well as posting in some of the forum sections.

I can do Fridays and Saturdays pretty much anytime. Those are my days off. Exception is that I cannot do the 6th, 12th, or 13th, and my late 14th is technically free for once. Other than that, I'm typically available Fri/Sat.

Let me know whats up. I love HW2, but have not played in AGES. Typically play Hiigaran. I am, of course, a fellow Irr.

yeah realy, and how would you password a match when made? Also, what mods do you have? Hey do you want to use teamspeak when playing. Well, I am also not able to play on the 6th- I take my SATs. Well, I could play in the evening though.

I should be fine on any of the remaining Saturdays starting October 13th.

I think using TS would make setting stuff up and communicating a lot easier (much better than pausing to type in chat).

!WARNING: CST TIME IS CORRECT AS STATED, BUT EST IS 7pm NOT 5 PM. WARNING!

Ok, things worked out to be a great time, just outside of the fact all of us re-installing the game several times. :madsmile: Thanks to Teamspeak, we were able to build up large fleets and not loose our motherships and too many battle cruisers. :) If one saw a sneek attack about to happen to the other, then he could call it out- hoooorrrrrraaaaayyyyyyy- or if you needed capitalship help, you just call for help !YYYYAAAAYYYY!

Guys, I think the next time we should have the cpu- if we need 'em- set on hard or above because the easy are just too stupid. :( And we should pick a new dust map that does not damage ships.

Well, my idea of our first revival game is a smash. The only problem for us was greaseing the gears for running the multiplayer- no more re-installing. Guys, I plan on doing this every Friday nights or saturday evenings; but the times can change based on work. :)

Guys: AMU, ICENFOX, HAVEANICETIME, AND ACREO, thanks for the support and for those who came.

Hey, if anyone here knows of willing owners and players of HW2, will you talk to them- we could always get more players.

Thank you all,
BeSiege82

I think this mod would be a nice addition to the game. The games are much more micro managed and usually take longer since you need to research more to get farther.


This mod is also a old mod that was released a couple of years ago.
I like it for the music.. :)

This map pack is a big map pack. With 170 maps in the pack that have either been created or ported from Homeworld.

After downloading the map pack. Extract the folder into the drive you have installed HW2 on. (Example: C:\Program Files\Sierra\Homeworld2\Data)
http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=65911


These maps are from the Angels Fall Dirst Mod.

Yup for now we can play the stock game and maps.
Then as we move along more discussions can be made to address maps and mods.

Neat map pack I already placed this into my data folder.

The mod looks interesting.

Is the map pack size right: 453.42 KB? Or is it 423.42MB? Either way, I'll get the map pack tomorrow.

I wish MP would allow 8 players instead of just 6.

I wouldn't be surprised. Sins of a Solar Empire's games tend to take a few days to complete (2+ galaxies).

I'll start the DL on that mod on Thursday. :)

Two days??
Well I it's definitely not gonna be that long. A good game can go as long as 2.5 hours.

Acreo Aeneas
10-17-2007, 04:56 AM
A few days doesn't mean 24/7 for several days. :p I'll spend about 1-2 hours one day and then a few more hours a few more days down the road for me to complete a game. There's a lot of space to cover, a lot of strategy formulation/reformulation, and tactics involved. So it takes a lot of time if you want to win and not play defense the whole game.

Well 2.5 hours sounds good. I'll definitely put it on my list of to do's for the week.

great :) I will be free Friday, and Saturday, but Sunday maybe out for me- I have a tutor; my pre-calc teacher does not do much to help us learn she only turns a video on, that will mean we will not even finish the book, I need for the physics and advanced math classes for the meteorology program I am going into. A nice thing about this is, the college I am looking to go to has another student from my town under the same professor- he then has some understanding to the poer conditions of the schools in my county.

I loved that match and the chance to gather about 10 destroyers and and 4 battle cruisers at the end. Thanks to Amu (aka Have a Nice Day) we can see his ships in the green and my ships in the yellow destroy the enemy mothership within 5 seconds! :madsmile:

If any one wants to play, just call. :)

I wish we had take some screenshots of the Saturday night game we had last weekend. We each had like 13 battlecruisers and another fotilla's worth of destroyers for each of us.
