Title: TMBO Game Scheduling!
Post by Spag on 04/06/16 at 00:24:55
So here it is! A topic I have been planning on making for quite awhile.

If you plan on hosting some games on TMBO, post the day and time here accordingly. The point of this is to keep one topic active instead of an increase of random threads like "I'm hosting right now in Chicago time!!!"

No MORE! This must end.  :)


And just a reminder for any new folks that it is crucial that you use the chat code in the TMBO lobby.

Press R1, R2, L2, L1, L1, L2, R2, R1 in order to get access to the chat. Press Square to open the chatbox, and triangle to close it. A USB keyboard can also be used in chat if needed.

We can't communicate with you if you don't use chat basically which can make things difficult. Although unfortunately, if you have an European copy of the game you will be unable to use chat unless you have a cheat device.


Game Reminder: You have an aa energy bar so make use of it.

Freeze - Up, Down, Up
Shield - Right, Right, Down, Down
Cloak - Left, Left, Down, Down

I was told we were to have 8 that night and some of us couldn't play too long anyways. We will be playing Saturday for sure though just a heads up. We may potentially be full for a bit but as always Aced will leave around 10 30 PST.

I know."Premium" players first,second bananas like me get what is left,correct?
Beside your room the server is pretty much dead,so there is no alternative for me...and you take it away from me...
But hey,i will not beg anymore,my pride wont let me.
No offense,really...but i am out.

You told me, quite clearly, you didn't want to wake up early anymore for a place that may or may not be guaranteed. That is on you. I don't know why these conversations keep happening when we clearly resolve the issue.

Last time, we played at a time not suitable, by your own standards, and we couldn't guarantee you a spot. So why are you upset for not getting an invite if you made it clear to me you won't attend evening (early AM) sessions anymore?

Title: Re: TMBO Game Scheduling!
Post by RoaDiE on 04/14/16 at 18:36:01
And since I cannot edit my posts:

"Premium" first, is completely false. IF you want to play, it is first come first serve. But the issue we have had some nights is that we have 9-10 people and only 8 slots. As I have told you many times, Aced14 leaves at a certain time... so thats best for EU people like you or Kemmler to slip in, and its not as bad as waking up at 4:30-5am, to instead come at 7am. Which btw, you told me, was still too early. So why are you so upset, you are inventing drama.

Did we not discuss you making a thread a week in advance to scheduling games in your evening time frame (so it would be my afternoon, and pacific time's lunch), which might be smaller rooms of 2v2 or something, but at very least to get some games going at a time best suited for you? We do this for kemmler from time to time...... But you never even made a thread.

With all due respect, please stop with your ideas you are being victimized, it seems it all stems back to that one night where there was no room, and I accidentally told you the wrong time to wakeup (time changes were different for NA/Europe). Understand it from both perspectives.

Well I'm planning to buy a new capture card soon, and possibly a used router where I work to use in my room. I'll probably start playing with you guys again soon. My advice is to generally keep touch on Skype if possible.

I've been with the original server since the beginning and I actually help pay for the damn thing now. There have been MANY nights I couldn't get in because the room was full, and everyone adores me because of my congenial good nature and positive attitude!

In other words, there are no premium players. The only way to keep this dream alive is to play nice and let bad moments wash over you.

Thanks for the info!  New to the forum, just got it working after learning about it 2 months ago, been years, looks and plays great!
    Will jump in off and on.  Will keep an eye for scheduled games here whenever I have my PC open.  If I decide to schedule any future hang-out game I'll be sure to put it here.

Thanks and see ya online!

Every Saturday pretty much. We're always on around 8:30/9:00PM PST. You can view the TMBO lobby via the server website to see when people are online as well.

Cool, so that's about 11:30-12 at night for me. Depending on my weekend schedule, I can probably make it work out.

Where/what is the server website?

You guys should seriously consider using Discord for communication and planning. It's an impeccable client, that I can't recommend enough.

You got the idea that were going against you when that's not what it was. The reason I had to go for you is because you cloak and lurk on the sidelines while the rest of us battle it out. I can assure we weren't teaming up on you because I was fighting Adonael and Mehdiocre the whole time.

The reason I used the enviroment was because you grabbed a full and didn't mine afterwards. I just wanted to end the match. That was my last game anyways. Regardless of that event it was fun.

Nostalgia got the best of me, so I decided to check out the TMBO server that was setup here. I'm kicking myself for not having jumped on the online train back in 2001.

Hopefully sometime I'll have either a Friday/Saturday night off, and perhaps then catch a crowd online.

BTW, crimsonstuds. The couple matches we had were great. Glad to see there was someone online to shake the rust off with.

It may be a bit too late say this now, since most announcements are made in advance, but I'll be around tonight until 9:00PM EST.

I'm especially attentive on Friday/Saturday because I figure that's when most folks would turn up.

Hopefully we can get some match's going.

Title: Re: TMBO Game Scheduling!
Post by YuDirtyRat on 02/18/17 at 02:34:08
I had the same problem earlier. Server/Connection Error etc.

I should also add that I'm usually around most days of the week. Since I work night's, I sleep by day and am usually am by the afternoon.

Understandably, there isn't a lot of activity on weekdays. So Friday/Saturday/Sunday are usually the best days to get online.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Thank you very much. You're no slouch either. When I signed on to Tmalliance, I thought to myself, "How's the community?" I've had some bad experiences talking to people online (mainly on Halo 3 and Call of Duty). But I've had nothing but positive things to say about the few people I've played. I guess it really depends on which games you play whether the community's good or toxic.
