Hey

Hey guys, what game are we all playing, if any?

No idea which one to install and which ones are dead.

T:A is free and still has some activity in the evenings, although it's slowly dying out.

Midair instant access can be bought here for $175: https://www.playmidair.com/buy/
Otherwise you can purchase at a lower tier and get alpha / beta access. It gets some action in the evenings too I believe, but nothing major as a lot of people haven't shelled out that much for a pre-alpha

Anything earlier than that is completely dead... there are tribes 1 and tribes 2 AU servers still up, hosted by retroverse... but activity is very minimal.. T2 server has some bots I believe...

Midair if you can afford the entry price (in the next couple of days). All the others are dead.

Midair all the way. You've got until the 16th of September to buy into the game (alpha/beta or instant access).

Because after the 16th they don't want more money.

Well you wont be able to buy into IA come the 16th and you'll miss out on the kickstarter perks on the other packages.

Servers have now moved under my NET247 domain, going to be reconfiguring them and updating the statistics system in the coming days.

I do miss the T1/T2 times.. not because I think games these days aren't as good, but because I miss the time to really enjoy gaming.
I can't invest the time in a game anymore to become THAT good, so just hold on for the next tribes-like release to at least be semi-competitive...

Do games still grab you the way they used to? Used to have no issues playing T1/2 and even ascend and the T:V demo for hours and hours on end. Got an Offspring CD (Americana) stuck in my drive and Desert of Death always lasted so damn long it was the only way to get to the secret song in the 13th track.

Now I can barely play 20 minutes of BF1 before I get bored.

Re: Hey

I'm currently playing wcsaga which is a fan made wing commander game set during the kilrathi war (wc3 timeline) done in the freespace 2 engine. I'm quite enjoying it... Although this mission I'm doing is particularly hard... I'm on attempt 10 or so..
If anyone liked wing commander I'd definitely recommend it even if the engine is quite dated.

I do still enjoy playing, but I find that without being able to have regular sessions it's hard to get into games as much as I used to. I lose track of where I am in single player games, especially if I have no chance to play for a few weeks. And multi player games I can't play often enough to be as competitive as I'd like for the most part.

I def am enjoying the gaming time I do get

Thinking of buying Midair while it's on sale... is this the link to do so?
https://www.playmidair.com/store/order/?package=17

And just wondering what happens after you make the purchase and how you go about downloading and installing the game, and installing your own builds and stuff. Cheers.

You'll get a CD key which you can redeem through steam - steam takes care of the rest
