This is for anyone who's interested:
Sometime around Saturday, I can't say exactly because of the time offset around the world but I think that anyone who owns a copy of starcraft (not starcraft: brood war) should join up and play over battle.net. I'll host the game unless someone out there who wants to join has a cable connection or DSL or something. For any newbies out there this is how battle.net works:
When you first come to the chat room click on 'join game.'
When you come to the list of games there is a box on the right. type the name of the thread-without the explanation points into the box. For password type: oedipus.
You should be able to join. We can play with up to eight players, and Banshee's son and I are the ones currently signed up.

Hey and when are you going to play against my son, also known as [dT]Lock'n Load, Mr. Shrike.
And yes, he CAN speak english, he plays with everybody on the Net, in english, when they talk to eachother, in writing that is, as you know. So he can even write english, haha.
So come on, what time starts your morning?
I won't back off until you have played my son, because maybe, you don't dare...
The idea you give here is great. A lot of Sci forum members can play eachother then. Can I follow that some how? Or only for people who are playing or so? You have to send it over the Internet. Then we can all look, nice. Do that...Put it on the Net, so we can see.
By the way, does my kid have to become a member here to play with you guy's here?
Or can anybody join?
Let me know please.
10-23-01, 07:26 AM
No of course not, he doesn't have to become a member here. I'm sorry but I doubt that we can post the game while it's in progress, but we can take some pictures while it's running and post them later. YOU banshee could look over his shoulder from time to time.
My name is rogueshrike. Next time I'm on I'll look for lock n load.

( i am son of banshee ) Well let me say this I only play UT online :) i never play any other game online....i play it much on lans :D well ok we gonna play :) Next weekend i can't because of 2 birthdays :( what about the week after that 1 ? let me know :)
10-23-01, 11:20 AM
Well Shrike, that was [dT]Lock'n Load.
Very friendly, don't you think?
I think it has to do with hormons, but ok, you two can make a nice appointment, then you 'kill' my lovely son in the game and I am happy and laugh at him for weeks, or I will be laughing at you for weeks. Haha.
I will see how this ends, thanks Shrike, for making me laugh so.
You are nice, play with my son please, just for the fun of it.
I want to know now who is better, you or he?:) :p
Go for it, yeah...
10-23-01, 01:49 PM
Yeah sure, np.
Official notice: game is set for next week.
10-23-01, 07:56 PM
that sounds cool.
you think i could join? hopefully i will get the starcraft cd from my friend by then.
10-24-01, 03:02 AM
Dividivad, be welcome at Sci forums.
But I think this one game, between Shrike and [dT]Lock'n Load, is one on one, but online, haha. A lot of ooooo's here.
You can play along with the rest of course, why not? I thought the meaning of this was that every weekend, there are games to be plaid.
So you can join, of course you can join.
Ask Shrike, he is the organizer of this.
And have good luck, beat them all, go for it...;)
10-24-01, 07:23 AM
sure, divi np. It's not just a one-on-one game, I want as many people to join as possible.
Shrike, thanks for the invite.
I'd be honored to join. What I'm hoping for, above all, is a challenge! ;) I have a DSL connection and would prefer playing original Starcraft with the 1.08 update - but of course you are the final decision. You may know this already, but with that version, you can record your game, watch it later, and pull screenshots off it as well. You can also do it by simply pressing Alt+Prnt Scrn after installing a Blizzard image viewer.
My only concern is the timeframe - Saturday is a big day. It would be ultra fantastic if we could throw a time out there, be it Eastern, Central, or international time. Just so we have some sort of order. But I'm glad to be a part of history in the making.
En taro Soupir.
10-24-01, 07:59 PM
Yeah, great!! Could you be the host?? I have 1.08 and I hope everyone else does, locknload its not too hard to get a battle net name n everything, pretty darned easy.
Whaddya have to do on saturday? It's still next saturday, not the one in four days.
Lets go by GMT-does it register like that on everyon's comp? Check the bottom of the screen.

[again son of banshee :) ]
Well i am better in Brood war buth ok normal starcraft is cool 2 I ain't that good i play it much on lan's :) so be warned ;)
If we are gonna play it with much...Yeah cool :)..... You will see that i ain't that good :) unless i get my defence mustert ( or how do u right that word :) ) i am a offensive player so b afraid b very afraid ;) well we shall see next saturday and maybe you will win ;)
10-28-01, 12:37 PM
it's mustard...lol no, actually it's mustered.
I have broodwar, so does dividivad. I'm hoping Soupir does too it's just that banshee said that you <i> didn't </i> have broodwar, but that's okay I won't press charges.
I used to be good, then I stopped, now I'm in the realm of being good. I've got a few tricks up my sleeve though. What map should we play? I'm opened to suggestions, but I'm leaning towards Island Hop or BGH.
11-01-01, 07:56 AM
So what time EXACTLY is good for everyone? Lets go by GMT since that's the universal time on sciforums-I assume.
11-01-01, 07:57 AM
sorry that was me, shrike. I was using the same computer as dividivad.
11-01-01, 08:02 AM
this is the real dividivad.
just want to tell you guys that im still good for the game.
