Alright, so I’m creating a new thread for this to keep it clean!
I personally think that Driver: San Francisco is an amazing game, and when I think of it, I don’t just think of the way it is right now, but also of what it could actually be. And that’s also a reason why I would like to invest into this project, and make it funnier for everyone.
This here will always be updated:
NEXT ONLINE MEETING:
Sunday, 17th February 2013
starting at 6:00 PM in the Lobby
The idea behind this is to organize games where we all play together. We did it sometimes already, sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.
That means it would be easier to play the modes like Blitz or Capture the flag which require at least 4 players, and we also have many more possibilities during private games, than during public ones.
How does it work?
That’s very easy! Basically, the first thing you need to do is to add me (my gamer tag is my username). To do this, go to your multiplayer lobby, then select the friends menu, and then you should have a button that says „search friends“ or something like this. Just enter my name there, and I will accept you. 30 minutes before the game starts, I will simply invite all friends into my lobby. That way, anyone who wants can join. How do you join? Very easy again. If I just invited you, and you happen to be in the multiplayer menu, then you will see a yellow star besides the „friends“ menu. Now open the friends menu, and go to my name. There should be a button like „join game“ or something. And that’s it! You’re in my lobby now!
If for example the given time is 8:30 PM, then that means that at 8:30 PM I will start the game. I’ll be there earlier and free roaming around… anyone who’s there earlier can join free roam by pressing ESC in my lobby.
What modes do we play?
The main idea here is to play one of the team games, such as capture the flag, blitz, relay race, or team rush — since we need at least 4 players for these and that can be hard to find. You know, most players wait for two seconds and then go… But basically we can play whatever we want. That’s why it’s good to be able to communicate, so everyone can give his input. We can go through all modes for example (starting with Trailblazer and ending with Team Rush, I think it’s called?) and we can also choose different settings. For example, are impulse, spawn etc. allowed or not? Do we qualify or not? I found out how to play with a mic — maybe it’s not that bad to have a microphone so we can communicate
I have also „invented“ a new mini-game which is „Destruction Derby“ — I might do a video on it which shows it.
Some things to know
- Some players can not play with other players. This issue hasn’t been solved yet, but it’s something to know. So maybe you will not be able to join my lobby. A rumor says it’s steam players who can’t play against regular players, so the best bet is always to find people with the same version as you. I personally have not the steam version.
- The times I give are all GMT +1. So check your timezone here: http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/
So let’s hope it will work this time!
