It's taken some time but I managed to think long and hard enough on how I could do it so here it is.  The Festers Place which colour are you template switcher.

If you haven't already noticed there are two new images on the website.  One for Red and one for Blu.  Click and away you go.

Thanks to smokedef for the graphics.  Sorry it took so long to do it.

It may be a day early but better to do it now than forget about it later.  Can you see we've gone all festive?!

Merry whatchyamacallit!!!

So you may have noticed our very own SmokeDef ran a halloween competition during the scary weekend.  Well the winner is....

Halloween Compeition Winner

Thanks to all for being great sports.  Congratulations to the winner, Jeffer.  Of course he wouldn't have managed it without Bowzie.

The votes are in and have been counted.  The results have been duely calculated and the rotation has been updated.  If you want to see what made it then check out our map rotation page.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to click a couple of boxes.  We have no doubts those that don't like em will and those that never had the chance to vote will moan but we can't please everyone.  After all who would we poke fun at :)

Thanks to MuG, our chief map organiser for taking the time to check out and upload most if not all maps.  A big thanks to you all for joining us at Fester's Place it wouldn't be the same without ya!

Cast your vote on what maps you think we should be playing more often.

A month down with the new box and everything seem rosey.  We hope you are all enjoying the improved gaming experience.  Things for me have been pretty slick and smooth and we are hoping it's the same for every one.

The new web design has gone down well too.  It's worked out easier than anticipated and hopefully easier to navigate and see what's around.  If you have any problems or find any bugs please post up on the forums and we will have a look.

Keep on fragging!!

Big Thanks to SmokeDef for coming up with the concept art and the website artwork.  I've put it all together in a new look web site with a more TF2 feel and look.

Hope you all like it.  Please leave feedback on the forums or any bugs that you may find.

We've recently had an update to TF2.  As Valve has said it was classless but still it has caused much debate.  It also caused a loss of servers for some time due to some drastic changes and incompatibility with SourceMod.

Thanks to the SourceMod programmers a fix was forthcoming and we are back on line.  As with all "major" updates something always gives and this one is no different.

You may have realised you've lost your fancy 32 player scoreboard well I'm here to remind you that you can find it here.


Some of you maybe aware that FestersPlace has moved onto a new dedicatied server. for those fo you who are not, read on!

The move happened over the weekend which caused some very minor down time and we want to appoligse for that. The down time was unavoidable and so worth it ;)

The new server is Intel Core2Duo Extreme and should help us alot more with having higher fps in games and just generally help our community players have and nice smooth gaming experience with out lag.

The Specs:
Intel Core2Duo E6700 (Conroe) - 2 x 2.67Ghz 4MB L2 Cache.
2GB DDR2 PC5300 ram.
Sata Raptor 74GB 10,000k 16MB cache hard drive.

So thats it folks enjoy! :)
