    hey pax bf3 players! my clan just put up a server for pax east players that is setup on metro 24x7 until the end of pax. Rules are in place to not allow SMAW / 320 and RPG however everything else is allowed. Browse your BF3 servers and locate: =FA= Devine Legends Welcomes Pax East BF3 Players - Welcome
    But... Metro Conquest is so limited... such a meat grinder with so little of what's great about Battlefield! And artificially limiting allowed weapons on a ranked server? Not cool, dude.

    Teasing about preferred game modes aside, thanks to your clan for welcoming PAX East players! It's just not for me :P

    Anyway... I'm hoping there will be some sweet BF3 servers available at BYOC... while it's great that the PC Freeplay gets to have fun with the Close Quarters DLC, I'm hoping us Vanilla/B2K folks won't be left out of the fun. Any word on LAN-connected BF3 servers, and what game modes/maps/configurations they'll be running? Or are we gonna be stuck connecting to internet servers (sweet Osiris I hope not, limited internet bandwidth and all)?

    We are trying but it's unknown righty now. At the very least we will prioritize traffic for BF3 on the connection. I will have an Internet server thats in the new England area for use at pax. I will have details up on the intranet.

    I now have full control over the server, so we do not just have to play metro, i can set any map on our Pax Easts hosted BF3 server! So this way if things get clogged up we can host another..

    Pax East Enforcers: I have procon access to the server for administering, so if you would like to get access during game play let me know.

    PS... any way of having this listed on the intranet at pax?

    As in, the original? I'm definitely bringing it, and I can run a server from my PC - either base or Meltdown Hell 3.3 (my personal favorite mod). I could be persuaded to run other mods, too, I guess.

    i was actually thinking tribes ascend, hehe. sorry. id prolly play the original too tho, havent played that in ages.

  • hendusoonehendusoone Registered User regular

    Same here (not playing in ages, that is). But I think it'll be fun to give it another run with as many people as we can get. Looks like the best place to grab it (if you want good Vista/Win7 compatibility) is here: https://emberlink.com/?p=tribes

    Just download the latest version and have at it. No need to patch up to 1.30 - I'll be running a 1.11 server if I run one at all.


    Scratch that... found a much better working (for modern versions of Windows) version of Tribes, available here: http://www.tribalwar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=607313

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work with the Meltdown Hell mod. Oh well, base it is!

    Speaking of which, if anyone is curious, I will be hosting a Counter Strike:Source GunGame server on my machine, with leaderboards, GG maps and all the fun stuff. It is going to be LAN only, and running on my machine the whole weekend, so feel free to jump in, if you are a fan of GunGame.

    On the metro server for pax i can run what ever i would like, the other server, is just our regular clan server however runs all original conquest maps which i can set any rotation to as well.

    When your at PAX EAST just search for =FA= under servers, the one your looking for is the PAX server and conquest rotations.

    How are you going to host bf3 when you need to pay for slots, or rent a dedicated server?

    true, but if someone bought say 3 passes, and suddenly one of the friends he was getting a seat for is unable to make it that person would still have an extra pass in hand. they could pick it up and give it to someone... help out a fellow gamer.

    BYOC registration is closed and passes are non-transferable. So the answer is probably no.

  • hendusoonehendusoone Registered User regular
    I just saw a tweet from @Official_PAX that will call will be open from noon until 5pm tomorrow. Do those hours also apply to the BYOC badge pickup, or is that still open until 8pm?

    It's likely that BYOC will call will have the same hours as badge will call.

    It probably is sold out, the unsold spaces are probably being reserved for BYOC staff or maybe even Intel.

    So my father has 2 14' CAT 5 cables with a coupler that he is bringing home for me to bring to the LAN party. I know the guide says a 25' cable, but can I bring 2 14' CAT 5's with the coupler instead? Or is that a problem?

    That should be fine, one 14' will probably work as well,though bring the two to be safe, you may even be able to get away with a 5' cable if you are sitting right next to one of the hubs.

    So if I'm planning on picking up my BYOC badge later than 5 p.m., does that mean I cannot pick it up thursday? Or can I still pick it up later than 5 p.m. thursday?

    I am guessing this is your first PAX? :) Yeah the BYOC thing opens pretty early. It sold out super fast last year, and this year they increased attendance by 50%. But it was open with availability for a few months, and if you miss the window, it can be devastating. :\ Sorry.

    Can anyone give me an idea of what games I should be loading on my computer tonight? I have Tribes: Ascend, BF3, Minecraft, TF2, L4D, all that good stuff but ah.

    I never tried BYOC before so I didn't know! But next year. :) I usually just hit the free-gaming area for my gaming fix or when I'm waiting for something else. And carting my PC with my monitor et al always seemed like such a hassle! This year, I had /just/ gotten a top-of-the-line gaming laptop, so I was eager to bring that to the BYOC.
