  • Tribes 2 Anyone?

    Who here played Tribes 2? I hate to sound like a spambot, but Tribes 2 is having a rebirth movement. Tribesnext.com hosts its own master server as well as full downloads of the game. Its entirely legal, since Vivendi allowed and still allows you to download T2 from places like Fileplanet; they just stopped giving out free CD-keys, and shut down their master server. So if any Tactical Gamers care to join me at what I sincerely consider the best shooter I have ever played (and a very team-oriented shooter at that) I'd be more than happy to teach them how every class having a jet pack makes this game more than a FPS.

    PS. I used to map for Project Reality, so I'm not exactly a stranger to TG. I'd -really- love to see some TG-tags out there again. That's right, I'm pretty sure I first encountered TG in Tribes!

    There is a thread already, but I don't know how many people are playing it.

        Wow...this is excellent! I was a huge Tribes player back at the beginning.

        Great to have around for those late-late nights, or with our PR server going down a lot recently.

          Great game, I might just jump back in and play some more. I used to love to be defensive turret farmer.

            I've been playing it a bit since TribesNext came out, it works great, and there are actually a few active servers.

            Some awesome work going into TribesNext, they've got a login server up (it even goes though some crazy password encryption phase when you make a new account) and they're working on restoring many of the community features and adding new ones.

              InstantAction (AKA Garage Games) acquired all the intellectual property for the entire Tribes franchise late last year, and has just released Starsiege Tribes (AKA Tribes 1) as a free web game.

                I got around to installing TribesNext, and actually got pulled away from WoW for a couple nights of fun. I plan to jump back in this week and play it some more.

                If you have multiple CPU's (ie. multicore), be sure to read the FAQ to see how to run the game with "affinity", locking it to one core. The game was coded before multicores became popular and has an important design flaw that requires it be run on only a single core. (The symptom of the problem is stutter, due to it thinking it's jumping backwards and forwards in time.) I recommend setting it to run on your 2nd core for more probability that it will get a core to itself.

                    Check out the servers still running this game:

                    (Goon Haven is considered one of the more popular servers.)

                        What problems do you have playing on your Vista quad core? Have you checked the TribesNext site for a possible solution?

                              This looks relevant:

                              I haven't tried running the game in quite awhile so I don't know what the current state of affairs is.
