Thursday...Thursday!...THURSDAY!!

WaW #1 server tonight starting at about 8 or 9pm eastern time. Be there or miss out on all the tales you could have told your grandchildren in 20 or 30 years about all the world war 2 battles you fought in from some ancient device called a "PC".

*Melvin* - What's the command in the console again to bring up the list of ingame commands?

You can get a list of commands by typing into an All-chat message; type: !help

Not sure about console, but I do go there to get map numbers if I forget them.  To get to console, the default key is the tilde key ~ and you type maplist.list
You will have to use page up to see all the list since the list will scroll off the console window.

Best method to change map is to first set it with the command !setnext and it's argument is the mapnumber.  So first map in rotation is !setnext 0
Then next command is to run it: !runnext

Psuedo official start time is Thursday 6pm Pacific (that's 9pm US Eastern time).

I keep getting this error when I try to join WaW's server. I seem to be able to play on 762 okay.

I probably just need to reinstall I guess.

I saw you disconnect last week, too, Nerdsturm.  That error can happen when files on the game server do not match those on the player's client.  Also, I think I've seen this happen when the CMP creates an object with the same name as in the vanilla FH2 game.

I can play on both WaW and 762.  I get no NetworkManager crashes.  I know others have worked on both servers, too.  It seems strange yours works on 762 but not WaW.  Something funky, I guess.

Yes, the best thing is probably re-install.  A full game re-install can be a pain in the butt, so first you should try just a CMP re-install.  That is, get the CMP full download archive and extract it over your installation.  If that doesn't work then remove all CMP folders and then extract the CMP full download archive.  For details of the procedure and the archive, please go here:

The recurring "Pubbie Thursday" continues:

When: Thursday. Starting at 9pm EDT / 6pm PDT / (1am Friday UTC)
Where: World At War's WaW #1 Server at IP 209.222.20.114 (no password)
Map Pack: Community Map Pack V2
VOIP: Use in-game or WaW's Teamspeak 3 server at ts.bfewaw.com, (no password)

For file downloads and other details visit http://bfewaw.com/showthread.php?t=292794

As can be seen by the start time, this is focused on people in the Americas more than Europe.  Of course all are welcome.  Don't fear the ping; it is better than what can be seen of Americans playing on the main European servers.

It definitely could be.  For the last month I mostly monitor from the outside by way of an admin client.  In case a PubAdmin doesn't appear in-game, I hang around from 15 minutes before to 15 minutes after start time to see if people need map changes.  I haven't seen many show up during the Thursday game time, (which is in about 30 minutes).

Of the relatively few FH2 players these days, they seem to be mostly located in Europe.  South America has some numbers on the server in Argentina.  While South America is a little worse ping for most of North America, it's about the same time zone so maybe there will be more players there in the evening.
