I am doing preliminary research to see if anybody would be interested in attending a LAN party from 9:00am to about 4:00am the next day, where the primary focus would be a game called ARMA 2. I will have between 12 to 16 seats available at a residence in SE Salem with a large livingroom.

Depending on attendies' preferences, I would be charging $2 per head or $7.00 per head if snacks and drinks are provided, or $10 per head if snacks, drinks, and dinner are provided.

A demo of the game is available at arma2.com and the full version is probably best to get at Frys right now at $44.

Please respond if this is something you are interested in, and I will email you when this event is actualized.

Id be down! It would be a good chance to play ARMA 2. It would give us a break from the TF2, L4D, COD4 games we play at every LAN.

Did you get your new switch yet?

I've never played ARMA2, so this is good excuse to buy it. What day will be LAN party?

I'm not sure when I will get this party going. I'm checking to see who would be interested right now. Sofar I have Zixonija, Bnash101125 on Keizer Lan, and CPL Pleasurement on the NW Gaming site, and Astronut in Eugene expressing interest. Marcus in Portland is interested, but doesn't have a gaming rig up for the chalange yet.

Bnash, I did get that switch. Mu hah hah!

Congrats! Im jealous! Razz

How many people are needed for one team? If we have enough, we could all just be one team and play coop and work through the game together. Oh. Does it have coop multiplayer?

Any number of people are ok for one team in ARMA2 and it does have a coop multiplayer of up to 64 people. It also has coop campaigns consisting of up to 4 players. You can even visit a website called armaholic.com to download user missions and campaigns, some of which rival the game's developers.

The address of the LAN is 446 46th CT SE Salem. It is just off of State St., east of Lancaster. My name is Tracy and my phone number is 503-510-7836. My email address is tracy_clough@hotmail.com.

There is room for 12 people at the event. There is a suggested fee of $2, or a $10 fee if snacks and Dinner are included.

We will be playing ARMA2 and ARMA for those who don't have the latest and greatest gaming rigs. Frys and Best Buy carry ARMA2 for around $45. ARMA is best found on ebay and usually goes for around $10.

Other games are welcome, its going to be a long day/night afterall. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks. I will provide iced tea and coolaid.

I'm only charging $2 so I can tell my wife I'm not going to run up the electricity bill. I will be providing coolaid and iced tea.

If people would prefer to pay $10 and I handled the snacks, other drinks and dinner, I could do that too. I'm not sure what people would prefer.

I would vote to pay $10, just to make it fair to the Host/Hostess. Of course the food would be nice... not required... but it would be nice...

As a guest, $10 is a good and fair ammount to pay for a LAN party. I think most would agree and should be able to come up with it. It helps cover your expenses, power bill, etc. I will gladly pay you $10. Whatever you provide with that $10 is up to you. Smile

Don't worry Wolfjet, most people are noobs at this game. The game has a steep learning curve. It doesn't take long to learn the first person shooter aspect of it, but learning all about everything takes awhile. I still haven't learned how to do certain things, like lazing targets for other players in aircraft. Some people actually specialize at certain aspects of the game. Some learn how to use artillery effectively, some people like the combat flight aspect of the game, and others the command aspect. It's like a big military playground. Smile

I played the Demo Saturday night and Sunday morning. I must have done Basic Training atleast 10 times before I could finally complete it.

I shot myself with the rocket, shot my buddy trying to rescue him, shot the cows, hit ESC too many times, hit the restart button instead of continue at the wrong time, got killed by the AI after the rocket range, etc. I did finally complete it though. I was happy!

Parachuting was fun. I rather enjoyed it. I made the mark after the second jump.

Next, I tried flying a helicopter. I was able to get the transport helicopter to fly level and straight and complete the mission. But the attack copter was totally different! It would get tilted just a little bit and would start moving sideways. Then it gained speed very quickly. It flipped over many times and I crashed many times.

Luckily, I wasnt the only ARMA 2 n00b! Wolfjet was online and was working on the same things I was. We played multiplayer DM once. But I hit ESC too many times afterward on the stats screen and it quit the game. It didnt even ask me if I was sure I wanted to disconnect from the server.

Then I had to go do stuff with the family. So I couldnt go back and play. I thought about ARMA 2 all day Sunday though. I'm itching to get back to playing. I need to at least complete the Boot Camp missions! Very Happy

Welcome to the LAN 4D7. You only need one seat for your monitor, but if it is possible, please bring a smaller monitor. Assuming 16 people were to show up, I would only have on average about 5-6 amps available for each gamer's complete system. That would be about 600 to 700 watts. I think I will be dropping the total number of attendies to around 12 though to stay on the conservative side of power consumption. There are alot of other people with SLI and crossfire attending as well.
