    Hey all,

    Just casually posting up a Halloween LAN thread, business as usual really. It's only been... a while.

    Anywho, we'll have a spooky game theme night on Saturday 31st October, running 6pm-11pm. Arrive from 5pm to set up and get dinner, if needed, although keep your portions small, don't want to be scared on a full stomach, right? Ticket cost is usual LAN theme night amount of £5.00, and is in the usual Bring Your Own Computer format, although if you ask in advance I have a few screens available for loan if needed.

    Fancy dress is encouraged, will try and sit out some face paints for anyone who forgets / doesn't bother :)

    So what's on?

    Well, here's the definite stuff, since everyone should have them or they're super cheap,

    (possibly) CounterStrike Source Gun Game Spooky Maps (depending on how organised everything else looks, might put this on for 30 minutes)
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/240/
    Killing Floor
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/1250/
    Left4Dead 2
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/550
    The Hidden Source
    http://www.hidden-source.com/downloads.htm
    Zombie Panic Source
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/17500/

    Optional

    Damned - http://store.steampowered.com/app/251170/
    Contagion - http://store.steampowered.com/app/238430/
    Coffin Dodgers - http://store.steampowered.com/app/320540/ (although it's maybe a bit too cute, but figured it could be fun and at least is slightly along the theme of halloween and gives some variety to the game style with three FPS games already definite)
    No More Room in Hell - http://store.steampowered.com/app/224260/ - plus point is this is free, we've run it before and it was alright, but it's a bit similar to some of the other games in the definite list.

    Welcome opinions on the above!

    Realistically, we're running the 12 spaces in the middle tables for definite. I can clear one row more if needed, likely giving us 18 people at max.

    Write something....




    That's what it said anyway.

    I'm in, still trying to finesse my fancy dress.

    As a thought for the 4th game, how about finally finishing Farmhouse in Zombie Panic: Source ;)

    Much disappoint, I thought we'd have had more of the "irregulars" by now. :(

    Incidentally, Emily and I finished the Farmhouse map at one of the Lan's and we couldn't find an ending, the military vehicles drove past but we couldn't find any kind of method to actually signal them to stop, so the final objective might actually be a troll to ensure no one ever escapes.

    I did take a look at the map, I managed to flag down the passing army jeeps but can't remember exactly how, I think there was a specific window, of time, in which the lights had to be lit up so the passing jeeps saw it. There may have been another power switch we had to trigger for the light switch to work, I can't quite remember.

    Yep. They're 19" 1440 x 900 VGA screens, so just be ready for that. I'll leave two out with DVI adapters and mains cables.

    Thanks G, really good LAN. CSS was awesome as ever, Hidden was excellent, pity about the lack of little girl screams. Really missed having these little theme nights. Looking forward to the bigger LANs again ;)
