Sea of Thieves is a PC and Xbox One action/adventure game that allows cross play between the two where you form a crew of up to 4 and sail around looking for treasure and having other adventures. If we have more than 4, we will split into several crews. We will make a attempts to match on the same server together with multiple ships at the start, so try to be there on time for this purpose.  In order to maximize our odds of getting more than one ship on the same server, please download the Fleet Creator and Windscribe VPN client, sign up for a free account with both, and have them installed and ready to use for these nights.  Fleet Creator allows us to see if we connected to the same server easier.  Our private lobby uses this code: xKeYI6pWPPdwAV18.  Windscribe aids in getting us on the same network and is easy to use and gives you 10 GBs of free data each month.

 

Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously. You can try it for a month for $1. See below.

7 Days to Die is a zombie apocalypse survival game with some crafting/building, similar to The Forest. We have a server running for it that will switch save games between community nights and the times in between to keep the community night save game from progressing further without those who are more likely to play only on those nights while still allowing others to play outside of community nights with full progression for that save game.  As long as you play outside of 7 PM Wednesday to 2 AM Thursday, you will not disturb the community night save game.  The name of our server is [OSF] Died in the Dell and can be found by searching the in-game server browser for [OSF]. Do not use the external STEAM server browser to join the server as it does not work properly.

 

You can buy 7 Days to Die for $25 and find more information about it here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/7_Days_to_Die/

 

Although there is in-game voice communication, we will also meet in a Discord Game Lobby and use that instead.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive server is back!
Posted on Tuesday January 30, 2024

The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive server is back and playable. The server, [OSF] Fraggin Friar Tucks, can be found at 108.26.25.2:27018. We will be using this game again instead of Counter-Strike: Source for future WAN/LAN parties until Counter-Strike 2 has more variety and is more polished with Source Mod support. CSGO is still completely FREE and to play it is very simple. In your STEAM library, right-click on Counter-Strike 2 in the list of games on the left and choose Properties. In the left menu of the window that pops up, choose Betas and then use the drop-down menu on the right next to Beta Participation to choose csgo_legacy - Legacy version of CS:GO. Once you do that, it will update your install of CS2 to allow you to play CSGO. When you click the game in the list on the left of your library, it will pop up a window that gives you a choice between playing CS2 or CSGO.

 

From there, the game should function just as it did previously including restoring your config saved to the cloud. If you never deleted CSGO (only upgraded to CS2), you should also still have all the custom maps installed. If not, any maps that are not included with the game will be downloaded from the server automatically when connected, or if you want to make sure that you have all of the maps ahead of time, you can download them from here and extract them to the STEAM\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\maps folder.

Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Blazing Sails @ 10:00 PM Eastern Sat Jan 27
Posted on Thursday January 25, 2024

The next game to show up in the schedule of events for our winter WAN party taking place this Saturday January 27 is Blazing Sails which we will switch to around 9:00 PM Eastern. We plan to start with Galleon Conquest but possibly Battle Royale as well. It is available in from Epic Games and STEAM but is currently on sale on STEAM for $10. We will be using a private server through the game called [OSF] WAN Party.  The password will be foliage. To find the server, go to Play -> Join Custom -> Find the server name in the list

 

Blazing Sails ($10)

 

If the controller support does not work, you can use a free program, AntiMicroX, to map controller buttons to the keyboard and mouse.

Sea of Thieves Season 11 Update Released!
Posted on Wednesday January 24, 2024

The Sea of Thieves Season 11 update has been released. See the release notes for what is new, changed, or fixed. Make sure to open up the Microsoft app store and browse to the Sea of Thieves app page. It should update your game automatically when you visit the page. Here is more information about the update.

 

Season 11 update

 


Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Battlefield V @ 9:00 PM Eastern Sat Jan 27
Posted on Wednesday January 24, 2024

The next game to show up in the schedule of events for our winter WAN party taking place this Saturday January 27 is Battlefield V which we will switch to around 9:00 PM Eastern. We will be using a private server through the game called [OSF] The Ardennes Forest.  The password will be foliage. To find the server, go to Play -> Community Games -> Browse Community Games -> Filter (by Name: Ardennes).  This should bring up our server in the list.  Do not join on others because it will unbalance the teams.

 

It does have profanity with the game announcer, but you can disable that by turning of the "In-Game Announcer" in the settings.  You can also set it to 11 different languages including "Brazilian Portuguese" if that does not work.

 

Below is a link to buy/download the game for $40, if you do not already own it, but it will inevitably go on sale again in the future for $10 or less. So if you do not have the game yet, you are better off simply signing up for EA Play for $5 for one month which will give you access to this game as well as a lot of other games and then cancelling it at the end of the month.

Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Day of Defeat:Source @ 8:00 PM Eastern Sat Jan 27
Posted on Tuesday January 23, 2024

The next game to show up in our schedule of events for our winter WAN party taking place this Saturday January 27 will be Day of Defeat:Source which we will switch to around 8:00 PM Eastern. You need only have it installed from STEAM as any maps that are not included with the game will be downloaded from the server automatically. However, if you want to make sure that you have all the maps ahead of time, you can download them from here. The server will be hosted at 108.26.25.2:27017 ([OSF] Welcome to the Jungle).  If you do not already own the game, you can buy it through STEAM ($10):

If you have issues launching this game or any other Source engine game (CSS, TF2, PVKII, L4D2), use the instructions here to use command line options such as windowed mode to launch the game and then set your video options to a working mode.

Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Counter-Strike:Source @ 7:00 PM Eastern Sat Jan 27
Posted on Sunday January 21, 2024

The next game to show up in our schedule of events for our winter WAN party taking place this coming Saturday January 27 is Counter-Strike:Source which we will switch to around 7:00 PM Eastern. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is no longer playable thanks to Valve upgrading to Counter-Strike 2 which is not quite ready for us to adopt yet given some limitations such as lack of source mod support and very few maps. If you do not already have Counter-Strike:Source in your STEAM library, it is available here for $10. You need only have it installed from STEAM as any maps that are not included with the game will be downloaded from the server automatically. However, if you want to make sure that you have all of the maps ahead of time, you can download them from here. The server will be hosted at 108.26.25.2:27028 ([OSF] Fraggin Friar Tucks).


Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Left 4 Dead 2 Survival @ 6:00 PM Eastern Sat Jan 27
Posted on Saturday January 20, 2024

We will be kicking off our fall WAN party at 6:00 PM Eastern next Saturday January 27 with Left 4 Dead 2. We will be using our persistent server at 108.26.25.2:27019 and will be playing survival mode on various maps. If you have not yet played this game with us, our server is modded to allow for up to 32 players at the same time but adjusts the difficulty upward with each player beyond the 4th one and starts in expert mode. See the link below for instructions on how to install custom maps if you do not already have them.

Prepare for Winter WAN Party: Discord
Posted on Friday January 19, 2024

Our winter WAN party is set to take place next Saturday January 27 starting at 6:00 PM Eastern. You can find the full list of games to be played in this post, and more information on each game will follow in the news this week.

 

We will use the Lobby channel on Discord as a supplement to any built-in voice communication for games to coordinate, communicate, and have a good time. All members and friends are welcome to join in. Members can invite friends and family from Discord to join our server (or use the Discord server invite link from Member links at the top menu of the forums). We will also use STEAM friends to coordinate. If you have not yet used Discord, you can find more about installing Discord and connecting to our server here:

SoT Community Night, Sunday January 21 @ 8:30 PM Eastern
Posted on Thursday January 18, 2024

Sea of Thieves is a PC and Xbox One action/adventure game that allows cross play between the two where you form a crew of up to 4 and sail around looking for treasure and having other adventures. If we have more than 4, we will split into several crews. We will make a attempts to match on the same server together with multiple ships at the start, so try to be there on time for this purpose.  In order to maximize our odds of getting more than one ship on the same server, please download the Fleet Creator and Windscribe VPN client, sign up for a free account with both, and have them installed and ready to use for these nights.  Fleet Creator allows us to see if we connected to the same server easier.  Our private lobby uses this code: xKeYI6pWPPdwAV18.  Windscribe aids in getting us on the same network and is easy to use and gives you 10 GBs of free data each month.

 

Make sure to check the game on the Microsoft store app prior to community night to see if there is an update that needs to be downloaded/installed by the store app!  Also, if you buy the game through the Microsoft store on either the PC or Xbox, you can install and play it on both the PC and Xbox One simultaneously. You can try it for a month for $1. See below.
