PQ Mailbag
Week of: 11/4/99

A New Era

Hey hey! Help me people, I'm lost.. I wandered over from my usual part of PlanetQuake (if y'all didn't know, that's PQ In Review), and I seem to have wound up in the mailbag! Man, it's dark in here. While I'm here, I may as well answer a few of the valuable, insightful letters our intelligent readers send in every week!

Servers, please..

From: Andrew
Subject: leper servers!!!!

I want to play this I've been refreshing for hours with gamespy on my little 33.6 modem and I don't even find a leper server... maybe you have a server.. but I saw none posted.. please oh please set up a little server on wich I can hop around on one foot while launching rockets with my good arm...
later
Dark Chicken


Well, Andrew, Dark Chicken, whomever you are; there's a simple way to find a server for Leper Q2. Seeing as this week, it's our Mod of the Week, (which may possibly be evidenced by the previous link), you can either check the Mod of the Week page, or PQ's handy dandy server list!

Subject: hello

how do i find out the IP adresses for these games?

Golly, that's a good question.. I'm stumped. See, it kinda depends on what game you're talking about. You can find a helluva lot of servers through GameSpy, or use the aforementioned PQ server list.. other than that, your question is completely incoherent. Next!

From: Attila Aros
Subject: hi

hey, im just curious about ur server list
how would i access "game dm1"
or something like that?


Uh.. Man, finally someone talks about the server list, and it's incoherent. Well, you obviously can't be talking about the PQ server list, so I'll have to assume you're talking about GameSpy. Well, just double-click on the server, and you'll be magically transported to a happy land where people will kill you many times. Ain't it fun?

More LAN Gaming Fun

Wow, this article was so popular, we're still getting letters on it.. Check out some important opinions:

From: (address deleted)
Subject: THe End of Lan Partys Is Near???

I just read the article about no Lan support in the game. Me and every single one of my freinds still carry 3 computers each to a rotating location EVERY weekend and then I spend an hour tweekin everyones box just so we have the chance to frag someone and then laugh in there faces about it. Thats the whole point of Lan Parties well the almost zero lag is nice too.... I think the bastards at Novalogic should have there testicles chewed of by a mutant while having there tool shoved up a 12 guage and someone pullign the trigger.... Bastards

Hellchick: I like the idea of a rotating location. Kinda like that restaurant that rotates, y'know? But what I really want to know is, why are mutants especially adept at chewing off testicles? Seriously, I agree that no LAN support is a bad move on Novalogic's part, and I think that people like yourself who LAN regularly should voice your opinion to them. Possibly using mutants.

From: Howe, Stephen J.
Subject: Re: LAN Gaming - A Thing of the Past?

I have to agree with Stinger on this one. Me and my friends moved our copmtuers from one houe to the other abotu once a month while we were in highschool. At first we played Doom and Quake with serial cables, then we got a Token Ring network from our highschool (it was being tossed out). We didn't see it as in inconvience at all.
Now that we are all in college, on breaks we get together and play. Sometimes we would try to play for 24 hours straight (with bathroom and food breaks). We've played everythign from Doom to Quake 2 to C&C to Total Anialation. If we didn't like the network play we wouldn't do it.
When we buy games now we look at the multipayer settings: LAN, modem, internet... We didn't really care about ping (we played carmageddon 1 with 8 people on a token ring. That's slow!), all we cared about was having fun and playing. We didn't even have great computers: my computer was a 486dx33. We played 4 player quake on that!
Yes, i would say those were the good 'ol days. We didn't live and breath games, but we balanced out the fun and work in our lives. And half the fun was telling "war" stories while eating and/or setting up/taking down our computers. :)
