And throw in random PC probs, people going to the bog, strategy games dragging out longer than planned, people drinking and people getting dragged into other games going on in the room and voila....the timetable is screwed :D :P

Dude, If that rota sticks to schedual I will be mightily impressed and may even give you a prize....or possibly a medal!

ya that may games is just not going to work. i have been there and tried that way to many times
if it was more like 4 games on the sat it will prob work.

Just like last lan i will be aranging some big games but they will be adhoc and based on what ppl are already playing.
will be more of a "hay there is a cs game going on join in" type of thing . it seemed to work ok last time.

lol I would say its a bit of a bad attitude but he is more than likely right, not a bad thing though as I like drinking/eating/movies and people then shouting for a game and then me thinking Oh I want in.

Well it's not pointless as it gives us a guide to what we are going to play so we can get stuff installed pre-lan. Nothing is set in stone times will vary and no doubt we will join in with other games as and when, it's just a start point. Anyway, I'm not here to justify anything, if others want to join in then that's basically what we will be playing so give us a shout or just join in.

Anyway, I need to change Saturday night 10:00 - 12:00, was TF2 now a visit from the Satanic Sluts :P

Shane, when have you ever been to a lan where everyone has a game that the whole room play installed, patched and tested? I've never seen it.

Hidden: Source has to be played, along with DIPRIP. We have hidden source exe, and i will get the DIPRIP one.. otherwise you'll be raping steam.

The last two times I have been there has been a game timetable, neither of those times has anyone actually remotely stuck to it,

Did everyone miss the first line of the first post?

This didn't seem to be a timetable for everyone to stick to, just one group.

If you do manage to stick to that schedule Shane, I'm sure people will be up for joining in some of the games as and when - just give a shout out when you are about to start a game, so people have a chance to join in.

I'll try to get these on the intranet. Steam will not be raping out net connection at this lan.

For those that would like proof that game timetables generally do not work:

Saltlan 12: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=3229&hilit=game+timetable
Saltlan 12: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=3194&hilit=game+timetable
Saltlan 11: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=3029&hilit=game+timetable
Saltlan 8: viewtopic.php?f=51&t=2612
Saltlan 7: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=2472&hilit=game+timetable
Saltlan 6: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=2267

I suggest we sticky a new thread with games that are likely to be played this lan. That way people can get them installed. Also, they do not have to go trawling though posts to build a list.
