Greetings Bad Voltage Team,
Continuing the discussion from Bad Voltage Listener Gaming Contest:
I’ve setup a Team Fortress 2 game server for us to play on as per the referenced thread above. I’m planning on doing a “test” run this Sunday (23rd of this Month which is short notice…). Unfortunately I work both Friday and Saturday, hence Sunday, but everyone likes to stay indoors on Sunday anyways right?
Here are the server details:
Port: 27015 (this is the default tf2 port, so you shouldn’t need this)
Max Players: 24
Bots: 10 (set to fill mode so bots will drop out as players join)
I have a Mumble server setup as well for voice chat:
Port: 64738 (default port)
I’m going to start it at 7:00 PM EST / 4:00 PM PST. I realize that’s very late for any Europeans that may want to play, but this is only a test run from which hopefully we can start some sort of competition out of later on. We can try and fit it to a better timeframe next go-round as well.
TF2 runs on Mac, Linux and Windows. You can get the game for free on steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/440
System requirements are fairly modest as well. Should run on just about anything.
The more we have join, the better. I’m trying to get a couple of my own buddies to play as well (great way to intro folks to the show/community).
If anyone has any map suggestions let me know. There are certain map types that bots won’t work on, but hopefully we get enough people playing that it won’t be an issue.
Any feedback is welcome!
Due to some server issues after a patch update from Valve, I think we’re going to have to push this back. Mumble room still works fine, but the TF2 server is having some issues. (suck!) Thanks to those that tried to get in and participate regardless
