Hak5 Gaming servers.

Recommended Posts

I agree with Steve. Until we get people situated with the server or until we get more dedi's running, we should hold off on major mods like ZS or GG. However, I do like the idea about having "special events". They could make some nice LAN segments or just random days of fun which people could look forward to.

Some kind of map rotation system and RTV kinda thing is good too.

Custom maps will also make it a fun server. Nothing too chaotic though but something that will still be pleasing to casual gamers.

I can't wait to see how the CSS server grows (simply because I suck at TF2 and CSS is the only kind of FPS play style that fits me lol).

Don't be cheap just by the $20 game you cheap ass.

You've played it enough to be worth the $20!

Here are some of the TF2 maps that we have been playing lately. I hope that I am able to connect to the next LAN party. Thanks!

CP-Steel

CP- Turbine

Balloon Race, Very different type of map

CP- Orange_X3, Low grav, 100% CRIT

I think that most of these are available through the following links.

Don't know if it would fit the bill or not but you could also run a server with gameservers.com. I used to run a Quake3 server for a while.

Costs about $15/month. (prob about the same as would cost to run a dedicated PC at home for the the month). If you have a certain MOD you need setup they will help you get it running

I used to run the excessive mod for Q3

If we're doing Arena on TF2 then I'm out.

Most people suck at Arena, because there's no respawning.

I'm used to getting backstabbed by disguised/invisible spies and then respawning to come back and kill them with my Shotgun.

Should really make it CTF or Capture Point. :)

other then a good server hosting the games how about an idea I thought of. Why not stream (maybe even record) the games over the hakhouse stream or maybe another one? sure some people don't have the games or cant get on in time to play but at least they could watch and see who pwns and who gets pwned.

2 of my favorite mods for CSS back when i used to play were no-blocking and Knife Syphon

No blocking allowed you to run through teammates and enemys, and its main implementation was to get rid of the most common noob problem of them just standing their blocking the way so that you get killed along with them.

Knife syphon was awsome (at least for knifers :P). when you killed someone with a knife, you took some of the damage that you dealt them as health.

both of them together made it difficult to kill knifers, esp when they could run through you, pivit slightly, and get a backstab on you. It does make a server more interesting by giving ppl who like to knife a fighting chance.

When i first purchased CSS in a store, it came with the disc. When you install it it installs the files AND steam. you cannot access the game unless you do it through steam, and steam needs an internet connection for first time users and to perform the initial update.

CSS was my first steam game though
