We have stumped up for a nice new 32 slot server so more folks can enjoy the crack that is Fester Place.
New server details:
32 Slot : 188.8.131.52:19021
We are installing custom maps which are server downloadable (awaiting testing) - so no more downloading and installing them yourselves.
Alas, due to technical issues within the game, Karaoke will be no more!
It wouldn't be a Festers party without a little map called Avanti and we wouldn't wish to disappoint. Well, we try not to.
Unforunately the gameserver hosted on Ping Perfect aint quite what we are used to. Having custom maps is great but we just cant make them download to you quick enough to make it work.
So, here's the thing. You are gonna have to download the maps and install them on your game yourself. It's pretty straight foward (ish) but if you want Avanti, you'll have to do it!
Download the maps from the links below:
Open the ZIP files and extract the files in the appropriate place(s). This is usually in your steamapp\common\tf2\maps (I think).
Hopefully, if everyone has the map pre-installed then we can all play and enjoy the car crash that is Avanti!
PS: Karaoke may live again!
Be apart of our forum and see what maps we've added http://www.festersplace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=7073
Fester has said it himself.
Its unusual times, so why not do unusual things.
A popped a server back online. Very basic, All talk, Insta Re-spawn, Standard map rotation.
Just a space to enjoy sometime away from the troubles of today's world.
Only rule is if you pop on the server, you've to invite a friend on too
In memory of Jason.
So Festers Place has a new home, new server with the same old giggling nutters shooting each other and throwing obscentities around. Tonight, 31st March, the doors opened and they came to conquer!
Don't be shy, at the time of writing this it is April Fool's day and that just means there's more fun to share.
Hope to catch you on the server again.
Here's a little game you can play whilst bored. It's about predictions and who will win each game during the group stages of the World Cup. Post up your predictions and the program does the rest. It'll calculate the scores you deserve and give you a league table on how you are doing.
PS: There was some issues regarding registrations which have been sorted. Thanks to "root" for letting me know and help in testing and fixing.
PPS: Can you believe it. Those darn web pixies have been messing again and things got a little screwed up. Fear not. They've been shot and the damage repaired with a few updates to the comp code.
If you haven't noticed There's a couple of new columns on the league table. It not only tracks your position but shows you whether you've moved up or down. It wll also show you whether you have made any predictions.
tell one tell all!! we shall see ye there ;)
