    Sorry if this has already been covered, but what's the line setup going to be like?

    There will be a separate BYOC like last year correct?

    That is my understanding, and BigRed is on record as having said we'll get in an hour early.

    to add back to the headphones comments.. I've been using Logitech 980445-0403 USB Supra-aural Premium Notebook Headset

    they have been working pretty well for me on my Asus laptop..

    though a friends got the same pair on an alianware system and he does have to fight with them on occasion ..

    but it can go USB or 3.5mm x2

    In his defense, he did everything he could to make it happen.

    And while I might stop short of going on record saying it -will- happen, we're certainly going to give it our best shot.

    Last year was also a completely new venue, and I'm sure there were confusions and mixups.

    Remember the line was like in some random room? No one knew where anything was going etc.

    Oh shiz...

    Left4Dead is going to be playable.

    I IMPLORE YOU TO GET SOME PC VERSIONS PLAYABLE SO WE CAN TRY THEM.

    Apparently at liepzig they'll have the PC version and at PAX the 360. I just hope they have the pc version at pax too...

    So we have a group of 4 and while we will get a pod of 4 together, having pre arranged seating would be better. so if anybody would like to join our group of 4 to make at least 6, let me know. We tend to play trackmania nations, golf questionmark, flatout 2, deathball (first person sports mod for ut2k4), most byoc tourney games, and a lot of other random stuff (nhl 94 emulated anybody). Send me a PM or I check this thread pretty regularly.

    If Valve fails to have a playable PC Left 4 Dead, might we try hosting a Zombie Panic server?

    FYI:

    If you people forget a network cable there will be a limited number of spares for you to use (and return at teardown).

    If you want to purchase a cable for your own use that you can take after pax, one of my enforcers will be maning a roll of cat6 cable with crimpers/ends/tester. We are just going to charge strictly for materials to save you guys the hastle of walking to the office depot for a (rape cost) cable if you really need to buy one.
    50cents a foot will be the cost for that

    Far better than the $30 office depot will rape you for a 15ft cable eh? :wink:

    Hey, for people that don't have TF2 on Steam, everyone who *does* have it has a free 2 (I think) day pass. When BYOC time comes around, it may be useful to ask if anyone has a pass left so you can join in.

    we should have some laptop locks available at pax for attendees to use (that is a *MAYBE* btw, no garuntees, ill try and get confirmation from the guy bringing them).

    The one condition is you guys dont get the keycode for them, you will have to come grab me or one of my staff to get your lappy unlocked.

    I will report back when I find out moar infos on that.

    I think the only recent game that uses the computer name as your default game name is C&C3, otherwise you just pick what name you use in games.

    Alright guys. Im all packed up and shutting down for PAX. Heading to my hotel and such tomorrow for some hawt setup action.

    2 things

    1:
    for the most part 3rd party sales of BYOC tickets is shut down, if you happen to do the following BEFORE THURSDAY then you can still buy one from someone selling one. This is assuming you cant get the physical ticket stub from them before PAX. If you can do that you can skip the following (although doing the following will help me greatly)

    IF YOU CANT GET THE PHYSICAL BROWN PAPER TICKETS STUB BEFORE PAX:

    SELLER: Give the buyer the ticket # (Should be 100360 for example) and PM me (on these forums) your name/addy/phone you used to buy the ticket with. Also mention the handle of the guy who is buying it.

    BUYER: PM me your name/addy/phone #, at the event bring your picture ID and the ticket #.

    2:
    You guys need to go to the 4th floor north lobby (where the lineup was last year) to the BYOC ticket station there to get your BYOC badge.

    WHAT YOU WILL NEED :
    the Brown paper tickets ticket stub (or know the ticket number)
    A PHOTO ID

    present both those to the people working the BYOC badge desk and your shiny plastic BYOC pass will be given to you.

    Then proceed to enter the skybridge and line up. Ill have 2 lines there. One line is for those who organized group seating with me before PAX. The other line is for those who didnt. They will be marked. Ill start yelling when its time to start seating the groups.
    Im seating groups first in a specific order to make things go quick and to minimize traffic. (hence no line :P)

    You guys can lineup in teh BYOC line as early as 8am on friday.

    See you all there :D

    Posting from the hotel after some pre-setup-setup action:

    Just letting everyone know we should have (95% sure) 40 laptop locks that we can loan out.

    Only cavet is that we have to secure your laptop and you have to come get us when you want t undone (the person loaning them to us requested that the code for them not be shared). But theres always someone on hand to unlock it for you.
