Good.  Hope to see you there.  I won't make it until the unofficial start time of 9PM EDT / 6PM PDT.  Please hang around...  The maps are still not mixed, although there was a new CMP released about 3 days ago.  Best to show on WaW #1 and move to WaW #3 (CMP-only) later if people want.  I've run into some new errors on the CMP but nothing fatal during my brief sampling.

Get on for the gaming tonight; start about 9pm US Eastern, (about 2 hours from this post).  Maybe start on WaW #1 (209.222.20.114) FH2 vanilla maps, but be aware of all CMP on WaW #3 (209.222.20.116).

I can't make tonight, but there should be other pubadmin that can help with map changes, (on either server).

Indeed.

FYI, the 16x and 32x size maps for Irrawaddy River were missing from WaW #3 (209.222.20.116).  They are now in rotation.

Typically, start is in about 30 minutes, (6pm PDT, 9pm Eastern US).

I probably can't make it tonight, but you guys might want to download the CMP if you don't already have it.  Those maps are fairly good and something more than the same old vanilla maps that so many of us have played over and over and over ... is a plus.  We have all sizes on the server.  A pubadmin can change maps.

But as usually, maybe best to meet up on WaW #1 (209.222.20.114) with the vanilla maps and then determine who wants to go over to WaW #3 (209.222.20.116).  Mixing maps is not so good for a couple of reasons: 1) inter-operability issues; 2) if you don't have the CMP, you get booted on a map change to them.

Regarding the CMP, use the Community Updater if it works for you.  Or, go here.

WaW #1 is just CMP maps, now.  For pubbie Thursday (starting in about 1 hour) or any other day.

So...is FH2 Thursdays still a thing? I had video card troubles for a while, and then my ancient Core 2 duo Intel Desktop finally gave up the ghost about a month ago, and I have parts on the way for a new system. I should be up and running again by Thursday of next week. Even though fairly low end for a current cpu, my new Pentium g4400 should compute circles around what I was using. Haven't got new vid card on way yet but cpu's integrated video should be able to handle a game as old as FH2. I Don't know where my BF2 disks are anymore, but I remembered hearing once upon a time that BF2 is available online free somewhere now.

I guess if Thursdays are dead then I'll go to 762. It'll just be good to be on the battlefield again  ;D

I probably can't hop on tonight tho, I'll be packing for a trip :P

Anthrax, of course a thing.  There was a broadcast e-mail to the WaW list for the CMP Event.  Maybe our e-mail list has wrong address for you.  We had OK turnout.  The event was our normal time which is aimed at American timezones (NA and SA) so that limits numbers.  We played 16-size maps due to numbers never getting over that number for any one round.  People enjoyed the maps.

I receive complaints every once in a while (including at the CMP Event) about the updater for the CMP.  One issue I've heard a few times is about the seeding.  People find it not seeded or find it very slow due to low numbers of seeders.  I have not investigated their issue.  We offer a full download so I send them to it.

The start time is still each Thursday at 6PM US Pacific (9PM Eastern).

The server is running all the time, but to have any numbers it's best for people to attend the Thursday thing.  I missed last week, but will make it tonight.

I've finally got everything installed(including CMP) and am ready for some FH2 action on the WAW server tonight. I hope a bunch of others show up too. Also be nice if an admin shows up. I don't have bf2cc or remember my admin logins anymore at this point.

Nah.  Who needs the admin logins.  You can do the in-game commands; don't need to use that bf2 client.

Hope to see you guys there.
