Alright, come and defend your platform -- with lead!

I'm trying to set up a "Mac vs PC" themes online game of Medal of Honor: Spearhead, tonight (Monday September 1st) at 9pmEST. If you're up for it, BE THERE. The "Allies" side is Mac :cool: The "Axis" side is PC tongue.gif

PC Demo:

A quick primer on how the game works (controls, etc.) at the following PC Mag forum post:
http://discuss.pcmag.com/pcmag/messages?msg=9428.9127

The game will be titled simply "Mac vs PC".

BE THERE! :D

Neat! I've never played it before, so are newbies welcome? If the answer is yes, then I'll be there.

Is this the demo or the full game that the game is being held at? I think I might be able to join in depending on whether I get some household chores done.

I'll try my best to be there, although since I don't think Spearhead will run all that well on my Mac I'll have to play on my PC ;)

newbvies are welxome smile.gif

The demo for either PC or Mac allows online play using only two different maps: Malta, and a U-boat pen. I'll be setting the game up with the Malta map.

I'll try to set it up at 8:45. Maximum 16 players! :( When you scan the online games in progress, look for "Mac vs PC". I hope your pings are low.

I just grabbed the demo and adjusted some settings. Runs great on my book! Hope to see you guys there!

Ditto on that -- is there an IP address for the server, or is the server just not set up yet?

Good game everyone, even though by the end we were getting slaughtered.

We sure got our butts kicked! Seems those PeeCee DOODZ only play games ;)

it turned out that a friend on mine set up the game. I;m kinda foggy how all that wworks. I ddid follow the steps, which seem easy, but no one showed up and I went to my sister's PC next door and couldn;t see MY Pc vs Mac game in the lkist. Then, a friend off mine said he hosted it, and BOOM, there it was. I'll try and get it straight (or someone here straighten me out) and we can try again later.

Ahem! ...

I run a game LAN wednesday nights. We usually play Unreal Tournament, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior and/or Total Annihilation. The computers are supplied.

Think about it.
