Sometimes it seems like we're running a bloody Dwango every other week around here. It somehow still seems to go against the grain for me but then I remind myself that if you can sidestep the earliest compilations and the overrated crap of DW5 then they put together some really great maps.

Dwango12 is one such collection which time has been less than kind to. Used to be a time when you'd regularly see FFA being played on it on L@P. But then time and EXP have been less than kind to most of the stuff out there. The funny thing is that some of the DW12 maps are just as intense as Brit10/Exec and the permanent L@P Ch@0zZ server hosting it has a limit of 10players. But since the EXPkiddies are so locked into their tunnel vision they'd never think of playing there. Their loss I guess.

I was looking at running a whole bucket of mods on this but they just weren't fitting well. So we have Doomer's Moregore once again and because people demanded it: Sharkvox!
Oh and did I mention this week is gonna be a 16player fragathon? Well we didn't have one for ages did we? And it should work out ok on these maps. We're also using a DMFLAG we never tried out before Wink
Let's hope someone in the US can manage 16players for us, although we'll probably just end up on TheOutpost with only 10

    Game Mode: FFA
    WADs: dwango12
    moregore
    sharkvox
    25marinepack2_b

    Maps: 25 (01-18, 20, 22, 23, 25-28 )
    DMFLAGS: 349668 / 8
    Time: 5 mins
    Fraglimit: 40
    Players: 16
    Death Limit: 1

    Date: Saturday 8th May 2010
    Time: 7:30pm UK Time / 9:00 pm EST
    Locations: [XXX] / The Outpost / etc

Thanks to Dewww for his help with the settings this week!

Haha. I didn't think you were going to actually use that chaotic banner I made. XD But with 16 players it looks like it will mirror the action we'll be having this 'Zaturday pretty well.

Can't really remember any particular maps out of Dwango12 since they all start to run together in my head. Looks like you got us all set up with some other goodies too. Surprised

whoa whoa whoa.

Deathlimit is 1?

If you die, thats it for you right then?

Maps will go by too quick, dontcha think? I mean if you get spawnkilled, you have to wait until the match is over?

I may have to pass. I like to play, not wait.

The day we get LMS I'll be sure to let you know.

This is something very different, and trust me that waiting will be the very least of your worries Twisted Evil

Dwango12, amazing, used to play it a lot on L@P Ch@0zZ. Classic.
<stupid>What does moregore.wad do?</stupid> Smile

+ perhaps writing "death limit: 1 second" would stop people's confusion. Razz

Seeing the banner for this weekīs sesh, I thought "Oh Boy, DooM vs. Hexen !" Next thing I know "Bleh, Dwango :/".

No, no, just kidding, I want to be the last to tick off ye olde Cybes, too, in addition to all the others who do so atm Razz

Tisī going to be a great weekend, with yours truly at long last now having 2 days off from work, again, sum 16 player carnage prospective AND a little chance of our (at least mine heh) rare special guest Obskuro showing up once more this session.

What, aside from about 4234523456 other things, could you possibly ask for more ?

Looking forward to 2nite, cya there mates !

Yeah it perhaps would. But I was trying to downplay that part so people would be more surprised when they joined the server Razz

Ok, perhaps I should use Mastlator™ (aka Master translator) next time.
Next question: what does 25marinepack2_b do? Smile

More Gore, yes.

And '25 Marine Pack' I'd have thought would be obvious too perhaps? It's not like it's some ST filename like AoWGvH_asdf34.pk3 is it?
It's just a skins pack. Please don't ask me how many skins it has in it Razz

Same, + it was rather annoying, as you had no time to take a breath, sip a wine, eat something small, wank something small, type something small into the chat, ...etc between frags.

Heh ok I was gonna say pretty much the same too Razz
Certainly didn't notice any difference in respawns and yes, it was annoying when you wanted to take a swig of beer, chat, w/e. Conversely then it does perhaps make players less likely to drift off. Idk, we probly won't repeat the experiment.

What we should repeat is playing that server! It didn't look to me like it ever got to hit 16players on either side of the Atlantic so we should try to get it there this week before it gets taken down. And y'know, it'd be good to get DW12 properly back on the map too!

And in case anyone missed it, here's the effects of moregore:

My only complaint was that too many things were done in the typical excesses of 1990s editing - rocket spam, SSG placement, and banal midi selection.

Pretty damn entertaining otherwise. Interestingly, a lot of the games came down to a matter of time running out rather than the fraglimit being hit. We had a modest amount of players. The aforementioned automated respawn was not to my taste since it cut down on the time to chat, change your skin, or do a quick mid-game upper body stretch.

Hmmm, as a not-so-renowned friend of all things Brit, Exec, Greenwar and Dwango (my personal four riders of the apocalypse), I did have a feeling of satisfaction with this saturday night.

The PPL were great (with the possible exception of this annoying Christ of Her Razz), the gore and the booze fluent, and I just tried to see this instant respawn issue as exactly the thing it was:

The Cookiemeister has spoken!

Hahaha, I remember the Christopher name now, but I'm always too much of a mess by the end of the night to recall anything other than a vague impression of good/bad session. He was getting lots of sprees, rite?
