How many still around?
« 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.
Suddenly, and without warning, it became a real life game of Hungry Hungry Hippos

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.
They may very well find me dead in a ditch someday, but by God they\'ll find me laying in a pile of brass.

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 :)
