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 Windscribe VPN client, sign up for a free account, and have it installed and ready to use for these nights.  It 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.

Prepare for summer LAN party: tricky game install reminders
Posted on Thursday August 11, 2022

Last news post and then it's game on! Our summer LAN party starts tomorrow. Here is a reminder for some of the games that are not as straight-forward to play. In other words, you cannot just install the game and play automatically on our servers.

 

Battlefield 1942 - Besides installing the game and expansion packs, make sure that you update the BF1942.exe file to the latest version to fix the server browser.

 

Titanfall 2 - Besides installing the game, make sure that you have the Viper launcher and/or the Northstar mod installed. If the Viper launcher gives you problems, see the FAQ item for other launchers or instructions on how to install/launch Northstar manually.

 

Bad Company 2 Vietnam - Besides installing the game and Vietnam expansion, make sure that you have the dll installed and a Venice Unleashed account to connect with.

 

Left 4 Dead 2 survival - Besides installing the game, make sure that you have the Helms Deep map installed.

 


Prepare for summer LAN party: Left 4 Dead 2 Survival Helm's Deep
Posted on Wednesday August 10, 2022

The last scheduled game to show up in our schedule of events for our summer LAN party taking place this Friday August 12 to Monday August 15 is Left 4 Dead 2. The plan is us to play this game in survival mode on Helms Deep around 10:30 PM on Sunday night. Our server is modded so that up to 32 players can play together. You should make sure that you have Helm's Deep installed ahead of time as it will not download automatically. You can download it from here. If you do not already own the game, you can buy it through STEAM ($10):

http://store.steampowered.com/app/550/Left_4_Dead_2/

 

If all goes according to plan, we will have a LAN server (called [OSF] LAN party) that players from the internet are able to join. There is in-game chat for this game to use for team-oriented coordination, but we will use the Discord lobby and STEAM friends to coordinate and socialize.


Prepare for summer LAN party: Titanfall 2
Posted on Tuesday August 09, 2022

The next game to show up in our schedule of events for our summer LAN party taking place this Friday August 12 to Monday August 15 will be Titanfall 2. The plan is for this game to be played on Sunday night around 7:30 PM Eastern. If you do not already own the game, you can buy it through Origin for ($20):

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/titanfall/titanfall-2

 

However, if you would rather not invest that much in the game, you could invest in the basic level of Origin Access for $5/month for August only and then cancel it after the LAN party. This gives you unlimited access to the full game while you are a member as well as other games (such as Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield V if you do not own those games).

https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/origin-access

 

We will be using the Northstar client to play a custom private match for the game. Northstar patches some of the issues with the game crashing and allows for customization of the match including higher maxplayers for the game modes. At the link to our FAQ below, you can find the instructions to download/install the Viper launcher which will install the Northstar client and keep it updated as well as enable you to launch either the Northstar version of the game or the original game.

We will be playing a private match, so we will start by meeting in a private match lobby. You do need to be on the Origin friends list of the host, so if you have never played the game with us, please post your Origin name here (or make sure to add Kramerika to your Origin friends list at the least). There is in-game chat for this game, but we will use the Discord lobby and Origin friends to coordinate and socialize.

 


Prepare for summer LAN party: Pirates, Vikings, & Knights II
Posted on Monday August 08, 2022

The next game to show up in our schedule of events for our summer LAN party taking place this Friday August 12 to Monday August 15 will be Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II. The plan is for this game to be played Sunday night around 6:30 PM Eastern. This game is FREE on STEAM If you do not already have it installed, you can download it through STEAM here:

If all goes according to plan, we do plan to have a LAN server (called [OSF] LAN party) that players from the internet are able to join. There is in-game chat for this game to use for team-oriented coordination, but we will use the Discord lobby and STEAM friends to coordinate and socialize. The server will have our usual password, foliage, to keep it private.


Prepare for summery LAN party: Battlefield V
Posted on Sunday August 07, 2022

The next game to show up in the schedule of events for our summer LAN party taking place from this coming Friday August 12 to Monday August 15 will be Battlefield V. The plan is for this game to be played starting around 10:00 AM Eastern on Saturday morning. 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 $40-50, 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.
