Just curious.

If so, where?

I wish we could find at least six people with stable XP machines to play OP again. CE still needs too much work IMO.

It runs well and doesn't crash out of the game everytime someone drafts you.

I bet you could get XP for really cheap at this point. It's a shame dual boots are such a PITA.

I have to get another copy of whatever everyone is playing nowadays, but I still have an XP machine stored away for just this community.

I have XP dual-boot that I sign into once ever 6 months to update Windows and AV.

So CE's a flop isn't it?  OP's what we have to work with?

I didn't get a chance to read through the CE sections, although I got pretty excited to see the headline postings.

So is that where things are at right now?  CE not up to the task, so OP instead?

Man I feel a serious need to whack someone with overloaded photons, if anyone actually allows that setup and engagement range to happen anymore :P

Really good to see everyone too :D

I wouldn't call it a flop as it did achieve its intended purpose (mostly). It seems to be suffering from lack of support, at least publicly, and a rudderless helm. OP is still the superior product, except that we can't play D2. CE still needs a lot of patching IMO or it probably isn't worth the effort to try a campaign.

Understood... damn it.  Just like the other thread title, this one hasn't ever gotten old for me.  I'll set aside some free time and get caught up here.

Hmmm, with DH and me, that makes four. We might have something here, assuming anyone still has the server kit and Bonk's DB editor still around. To run a true camapaign with a small number of people we need to be willing to play many races over a long period of time. The server wouldn't be up all the time, only when we had a game planned, so moves would be planned and then executed based on strategic movement, sort of like a SFB game, but resolved with SFC. We tried something like this before and found a show stopping bug, but that was when we were trying to get around using D2. We never tried to do it using D2 (which requires the XP set-up) so we don't know if the problem exists there. Even so we may be able to make a compromise that everyone is happy with. That was another problem with our other group, we rarely agreed on anything.

Im reloading sfcop right now. I thought this sh*t worked on win7? Got an older XP laptop thats great for this, but I can get my local laptop corner ripoff store to setup dual boot on my current rig as well.

I just kinda want to do some fun ip games again. Server would be nice, but I hate testing missions. I hate player drops...;.

A server with six people would only work if the six chose to go a week of foresaking any sort of social life, sleeping two hours a day, and eating pre-packaged foods, and like any real gamers they would need to do their business in a coffee can while playing.
