    Rules.

    1. Don't mess with other folk's stuff
    2. Keep all banter sociable - no flaming
    3. When leaving the premises, make sure someone goes with you to lock the door behind you - don't leave this open unless you're just going for a smoke break.


    (Apologies this is a bit last minute, I've had a VAT return to do and other stuff, usual excuses etc)



    So it's time for another day of gaming antics. A shortage of time means there's not going to be anything hugely innovative here, more a repeat of something like the last one with a couple of tweaks... but hey, it was pretty good, so no point fixing something that usually works well anyway.


    Date: Sunday 21st August
    Time: Event schedule starts 10.30am and stops at 9.30pm. (Arrive / Setup from 9.30am)
    Cost: £10
    What to bring:
    (essentials)
    Your PC, monitor, keyboard, mouse, power cable, install the games below and test before coming to make sure they work. Bring a few layers of clothing. We're through the worst, but likely the room will still be fairly cool.
    (optionally)
    Mouse Mat, headphones, mascot. Spare PC if you're unlucky and stuff breaks.

    There's a few monitors here in the workshop area if you need a loan of one, but they're not brilliant (mostly 1440 x 900, couple are 1920 x 1080 but one of those has a scratch on it). But ask in advance and will set one up in your seat if you're not able to bring your screen.

    Reserve a seat by posting below.

    For the moment, the tall chairs rows are closed off and will be opened if there's enough demand later. It's easier for me to just use the central part of the room first, so rather than scatter people about, we'll start with the middle three rows only.

    I'll take any seat, also is it ok if I miss out some games because of storage space on my pc?

    A lot of the games are tiny (and a good few of them free too) so you should be able to get involved with most of them alright, but inevitably there's always a couple of games that not everyone can join (eg I expect we won't have a full house on GTA V, not everyone will have it).

    Gameplay is shown on a projector screen at the end of the room, so you can either watch that or do something else on your own PC.

    FYI - while it's really, really encouraged to have all the games set up and installed before the event to keep everything going fast and smooth for everybody, if space is an issue, the installation files for all the games are cached on a server here, so they can be installed quickly if you need to. So you could always use the lunch or dinner break to uninstall and reinstall some other games that are coming up on the schedule.

    Hi

    I'll take seat 7 (fully expecting Ben, Gareth, Aiden & Harrison to take the rest of that row).

    Cheers,

    Hi, confirming that I (Gareth) will be coming, with my two boys, Aidan and Harrison, as well as my Brother if that's cool.

    So 4 of us total.

    I might be able to get it off but no guarantees with the short notice.

    I see that someone has taken my usual seat *cough* Ben *cough* so put me down for 13 please.

    You're maybe just the best of a bad bunch.

    INCIDENTALLY - there's a new version of GoldenEye Source out. I'll need to check it out - there might be a revision to the schedule to squeeze that in. Tempted to remove Hockey? and Trackmania if new GoldenEye is good. (I say that because we used a previous version at a theme night years ago, it was just 'okay' but it's worth another look)

    Aw god dammit! Another one I'm going to miss.

    Though to be fair it's because I'm flying out to New York on the 21st, so y'know... :)

    Just to update - I've removed Hockey? (we'll run it at the winter event), moved Trackmania to the opening game (since it suits people arriving mid-way quite well, so it's a good intro / setup time game) and included Goldeneye Source 5.0 during the afternoon.

    If anyone else is wanting spaces together, I can shuffle BryanHand to the more spacious row where I am. If anyone else is hovering let me know asap as if I need to open up space on seats 24-28 it's tonight or never. But as it stands we've got room for about 2 more anyway.
