Title: How many still around?
Post by: FUBAR-BDHR on October 09, 2006, 05:18:19 AM
Was thinking earlier (yea I know I shouldn't do that) and started wondering how many original FS2 pilots and squads are still around from the old PXO days?  I know myself and a some of the other Drunks are still about.  Don't think anyone has played much but they still check into the bar from time to time.

Lots of former FF / DSA & 79th pilots are still around on the FF boards and quite a lot are enjoying playing EVE together ;)

Bout checking those boards I think Castor & me might be the only ones; at least none else posts. Once the BSG mod will be out I'll be able to drag some old farts back in tho ;)

Not a lot of old SW pilots still around. But enough.

I was big at playing on PXO. Would go to bed with a sore wrist from playing half the night with a Force Feedback joystick. Even became a captain. I got away from it though, but lately have been missing it. I miss the smell of burning Shivans.
Does anyone remember the name Rumbler? Come on think. I've probably "killed" you a few times. :-)

welcome back rumbler.  I was probably one of those shivans.


...ok, does any one else want to say it?  Can I?  Or are we just going to ignore the fact that the phrase...

Sorry... I couldn't resist. :biggrin1:

At the age of 13, I had worked my way to the top ranks of the 101st Aces (one of the MANY squads to take on 101st, I know, but it was a squad none-the-less).  I miss those days so bad, the joys of 16 Erinyess (or however you spell it) locked in heavy dogfighting around a space station, or a Colossus...  ::slips into memory::

Hey, I made a server yesterday :yes: It was up for about 1 hour and then I took it down again. Never played this game, but since I've used so much time to get SCP up and compressing all those cutscenes to .AVI (damnit!) I guess I pretty much have to at least complete the single player scenario. Give me a holler if you wanna blow me outta the sky ...you can still use that phrase even though it's outer space right?

Well, I guess I'm just 3 or 4 years late for a game eh :hoppingma

Now that I got FS2 open running I love it. I havnt played since back in 2000. Unfortunaly my computer at the time was so archaic that i couldnt finish the game due to the fact that the giant humming paper weight couldnt handle it. However now I find I have been sucked right back into the story line and witht the upgraded eye candy I find that it just...well.... freakin rocks! Now just waiting for the official 3.6.9 build so i can play multi player with the good looks of FS2_open.

You can play multi with 3.6.9 RC 7.8 you know. You just can't save your stats and have it look pretty at the same time :)

i played on pxo from time to time, but never made a big deal out of it. it was anoying, everyone would quit if you loaded fish fire or emps. this pissed me of. seemed childish really. i always thought it was fair to use them if the mission had them in the loadout. but 90% of the time the host would bail and everyone would call you a noob. when you think about it the only one of the dirty 3 weapons posed any threat, the infyrno, and even then it required alot of skill. id have sooner they banned heat seekers or the morning star that woulda stirred up the hordes abit.

I tend to feel the same way. I never really understood the restriction. Was it just that pilots got so good with those weapons that there was no challenge to play with them?

Post by: FF-Darkhalf on October 23, 2006, 03:19:56 PM
I barely played with em really unless it's been for the MT-09 SW mission in the nebula where the usage of Fish been very common :(

Fish, Emp & Fire got into the standard rules same as no ai. Why exactly ? I ain't sure, just my feelings always been it sucks using em, emps mess up the sensors and often are hitting friendly ships as well, heavy fish usage makes the game lag espescially in a 4 vs 4, that's a lagfest then. There has been games where ppl take em which isn t a prob as long it's been cleared before really. Some toying around with fish can be fun. As for people being too good with em, I can't say much, just seemed like a poor way of playing as once ur in the 'combat zone' u mostly keep up circling in ur sekh constantly using cm's and firing off all fish & rocks u got not really aiming at anything .. but u'll get quite some kills with that.

Just been not much fun or skill needed as I remember.

Hey everyone

This is my first time posting on this forum (and i didnt post anything in english for a long time ^^), so i will keep it short;
I used to play fs2 around the end of PXO, well a year before that they actually shut it down or so. It was real fun, i cant remember having so much fun with any other game i played ever since. Well i actually got depressed when i quit playing fs2 (i still feel bad about it, but well i didnt have much choice, without pxo, and lobby to meet, the game was mostly dead).
Anyway, i recently (a hour ago ^^) reinstalled fs2 and got fs2net working, so i was wondering if there are any mutliplayer sessions planned, or any way to meet (talk) to players who would come and play a few missions.

Oh yea, i used to have name AD-Hearty, maybe someone still remembers (i doubt it...)

bye ^^

The few occasions I did play multiplayer, it was always 'No Fish!'.

Not that it mattered, I sucked anyway ;)

Oh, and hello again everyone :)

Now what would FreeSpace 2 be without old Vapor :naughty: If I would of known this game was still going strong, I would of been back stacking the old kill count a long time ago. Anyone hear from snakemaster, moondragon, or grrr what was her name... Maybe in a bit I reload the old game and see if my profile is still active hehehe. Lord knows 60k kills is gonna be hard to get back xD.

This really is my very first time posting about this forum (and that i didnt publish anything in british for any very long time ^^), and so i could keep it short

I did previously play fs2 round the finish of PXO, well annually before they really shut it lower approximately. It had been real fun, i cant remember getting a lot fun with every other game i performed since. Well i really got depressed after i quit playing fs2 (i still feel below par about this, but well i did not cash choice, without pxo, and lobby to satisfy, the overall game was mostly dead).

Anyway, i lately (a hour ago ^^) reinstalled fs2 and also got fs2net working, so i'm wondering if you will find any mutliplayer periods planned, or in whatever way to satisfy (talk) to gamers who'd come and play a couple of missions.

Also, i previously had title AD-Hearty, maybe someone still takes note of (i doubt it...)

bye ^^

The best way to find multiplayer games is to get on IRC.

Hello there

I know this is an old post, but I just found it by google.

So... what is the big idea using my FS2 name as if it was your own? AD-Heartless and AD-Hearty were nicks used by me during PXO and after, I would appreciate it if random people didn't try to use it.

Thank you

Ok, now this is real interesting, looks like "golingling" found an old post of mine and edited it a bit, then reposted it. I guess he just forgot to remove my player name.

Indeed he did. I've deleted the offending post, but I can't quite ban him yet. If we find out that all his posts have been copied from previous ones, we can, but I wasn't able to find that with a cursory search.

Hello! I am just downloading FS2 and did not play yet. I played the old PXO  and found it very interesting game. Thank you so much for your great thread. I will be the pilot when I will play it.
