    I'm a supporting member now. How do I join the server when it is full?

    Re: Supporting member

    In your console, type:
    connect <server ip:port>

    You can get the server IPs and ports by copying and pasting them from the server info screens. Alternatively, you can just type:

    connect tgns.tacticalgamer.com
    or
    connect tgns2.tacticalgamer.com

    for server 1 and 2, respectively, if you don't want to copy/paste.

      I created desktop shortcuts; makes it a bit quicker:

      Code:
      Target:  
      "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 70 -game ns +connect tgns.tacticalgamer.com
      so you can view the list in the "servers" window of steam, and then yer 2 clicks away from joining! =)

        Unfortunately, yosh and lush forgot the most critical part:
        Your steamid must be in your user profile here on the forums to activate your reserved slot. If you dont know how to get it, simply run the game on any server, pull the console down with the ~ key and type STATUS. Look for your name on the list that comes up, next to it you'll see something that looks like STEAM_X:X:XXXXXX. That whole thing is your steamid. Make sure you enter it all (including the steam_ part) in your profile. After that and one map change, your slot should be up and running!

              Here's the part of my NS config that I'm most proud of:

              Code:
              alias "tgns" "connect 74.52.157.234:27015"
              alias "tgns2" "connect 74.52.157.235:27015"
              I start NS normally, then if I see a full server, I can pull down my console and just type "tgns" to join TGNS server 1, or "tgns2" to join TGNS server 2, depending on which one has people playing. Its not always the same server, you see, so I prefer that to embedding the IP in my startup shortcut.

                  Bah.

                  two shortcuts; double click is faster than 4 keys! =P

                    True, but 4 keys is faster than guessing the wrong shortcut and watching the load screen only to find yourself in an empty server. ;)

                      Not to mention all the keystrokes and mouse clicks and synapse firings that have been wasted on these posts... gotta feel bad about those.
