It went amazingly well! I will keep it short and simple for now, till everyone wakes up and has a change to post there experances.

Well it started well at about noon when a few people started to trickle in and we set up. Tagert forgot his CD (DOH!) and had to run out to every store in Glendale looking for a copy. About everyone (6 players, plus Lima and I for a total of 8) got playing. We did some GREAT coops and had a blast dodging trees and each other. Later on we opened up our server to the public and had a good time with a few people online. But I think the German trees did us in more then enemy fire. Damn German trees.

When we orderd the Pizza, I did a showing of the add-on too people. They could not get enough! I was only able to show a few aircraft in flight, and just a handfull of some of the new features, but it was more then enough to sell them on the product. They left my computer with dropped jaws and a need for more.

I would like a few people who saw the add-on to post what they think about it. I am jaded a little and would tell you everything is good. So dont take MY openion for it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

As the absolute worst pilot at the event, I can honestly say that I had a great time; and all of you who wanted to come and didn't, really missed out on an exciting experiance. (I didn't hit a thing except the landscape.)
Gibbage's demo is everything that he claims it is. All of the "Whatif1946" folks will be biting at the bit to own this gem- as will all the people who have been waiting for some of the WW2 classics to come out. (P38 and Spitfire fans your salvation is at hand.)
Next time Gibbage makes an offer of a LAN party, I wouldn't miss it for the world. Next time though, I think that we need to take on the world a little earlier, as Robin and I had to leave (9 P.M.) to take care of business.
Again, let me reiterate that those who didn't attend, boy did you guys miss a good time!!!

Unfortunately, I could not make it as promised. It sounded like a lot of fun. I surely hope another one is planned.

I could just imagine the fun you guys had. I hope there would be another one in the near future. The chance to meet you guys would have been worthwhile by itself.
So what did you guys play then, coops, dogfights, ladder? Mansechs? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Mostly coop until 9 P.M. (when we had to leave).
Although I have to admit I wasn't the most cooperative of pilots present. If you want some real fun- try flying the gunner position when Taggart is the pilot! I thought the tail was going to smack the ground a couple of times!

Well, we HAD some pictures but they were lost during transfer from the digital camera. I don't know what happened, I wasn't there. We lost a bunch of images from a production shoot as well though so the LAN party stuff was the least of my worries.

Would like to do this again but it will be a while before I can get the time. We will let you guys know.

That K-14 gun sight is going to really make the P51 and P80 a joy to fly!! In retro.. The lan party spoiled me.. I have not been able to play the current version.. In that all i can think about is them new airplanes you showed us!! That and it was a blast meeting everyone!

All in all Im in a holding patern.. I need this add on.. I have been spoiled! I want to fly that P38 too!

Oh.. Gibb.. sense the party Oleg said we are getting like 9+ more aircraft.. Does that mean your Do335 is going to make it in?

Anyway.. Hope all is well.. And we need to do it again some time soon!!

No. The other aircraft that was announced was the ME-262 with the 50MM canon. I actually had it in my copy I showed you but I did not know it!!!! Later the next day I scroled down the list and found 3 Me-262's and went "wtf is this U4 model?" and then went into the aircraft viewer and almost crapped my pants!
