I read your post, eyed the joystick I have sitting on a shelf, and gave some thought to installing D3 (new machine since last I played), but I think 6DOF is going to have to wait a little longer for Sergeant Thorne. There's too damn much to do and too few hours in the day, and what free time I do have is spent trying to shake it all off. :P

You should post some screenshots, though, on the off-chance it'll tip the scales in D3's favor. ;)

Hope you find some competition!

If it's not raining, it's pouring! I bought a new computer, and now broke all HDMI connectors on the TV! :lol: So while I can not play with you in multiplayer :(

If you have a valid license by owning original CDs - it might be an option to download a working D3 "All Inclusive" build from Dateiliste:

Tried it myself and had no other chance than liking it :)

I have a license D3. Unfortunately, the second disc was lost. By the way, I have long suffered as a license to install D3. Because it can only be installed in English input language on the computer. After that, I do not wish to purchase any licensed games that do not have the support of the Russian language.
A D3 I still be able to install and play, even if for political reasons are locked all my credit cards and closed all the pirate sites. I think I cope with it as anything. :wink:

Running again now. Problem with them big battles is that people sit in front of empty servers instead of joining...

Good idea! :) In order to organize the championship with Russian descenters on any map and any mode on Russian server you need to write your suggestion on the forum (your message should be only in Russian language) or in the chat (your message can be in any language).

The problem is we need a mid-Atlantic server for our across-the-pond games. ;)

People play on Descentforum.NET if they are from South Africa, Slovakia, Russia, Australia(!), USA, Brazil, UK, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Switzerland,...

USA Westcoast pings higher to NYC than Russia to Germany I think. Sigh... So sad the evolution of the internet did not even it out properly.

I pinged ~150ms to NYC 10 years ago from Germany and I still do (well OK it might be 120 now).

In the end everybody should remind this game is supposed to be fun. You can't do seriously fair e-sport even inside the US.

What I do to even out the unfairness when I play on German servers with international friends: Finish a six pack of cold ones - that'll do ;-) :lol:

We appreciate your sacrifice. ;) I played on lan for the first time in... 6-8 years (?) last night. I hadn't lost as much as I thought I would, but there's still a lot that needs tightening up. It was a lot of fun. I can't wait for Sol Contingency to come out.
