Thanks!
I should've known to do that myself but will add that to everywhere I've advertised it.

0.52 event - Saturday 21st August @ 6pm GMT
Thanks everyone who came!
Had a dozen at the peak, which could've been more if we'd advertised on /v/ but we'll do that for next time.

0.52 instructions
  • Attached to this post is a zip file containing the modified 0.52 - download and extract.
  • Head into config.ini and update your name (if you want).
  • Execute the "JOIN - Grandy" batch file to launch the game pointed at my server.
For those that live far away from the UK, I have had reports that the connection can take a bunch of attempts to actually get through. We're using patched version of the original server software, so it's a bit flakier than the pysnip of modern AoS; apologies if you get a server timeout when trying to connect. Keep trying!

Just to say I have updated the main post with the next event which is this coming Saturday, and will follow the same format for future events - updating main post, posting a summary post and doing one of these "hey next update is up" posts for coming events.

As a slight update, each event I run, I'll look to schedule the next one.
So, the event tomorrow we'll already have October 9th set aside, and I'll do map voting for that onstream tomorrow night after the games have petered out.

Join the Ace of Spades classic discord to get pinged when the next one begins. https://discord.gg/RBPbMPY

Either way, stay tuned to the original post in this thread, because if there's any changes/updates it'll all be put in there too.

0.54 Mesa event - Saturday 11th September 2021 @ 6pm BST
Amazing turnout this time; 24 players at the peak and still had 11 people for the final screenshot at the end.
Thanks also to Triplefox for coming in and sharing some of his history and the history behind the map which was awesome to hear about :)

Until next time! Green_Sunglasses1

I plan on showing up.

I need to find a Y splitter for my headphones to use the mic.

And that's a wrap on Saturday October 9th - 0.54 on Normandie w/Influx!

VOD: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1172224021 /


Huge thanks to Influx for answering all of our questions and thanks to those of you that sent them in, was great to hear his insights on how he went about making Normandie and his other maps. I'll look to condense it into an interview video sometime this week. Also thanks to danhezee and Tank for keeping us company in voice and to all of you who attended - huge amount of nostalgia from Normandie!

Screenshots from Influx of his maps that we mentioned and showed during the stream, I shall lump into the spoiler tag below.

6th November 2021 - Prauda by Onigiri!

VOD: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1198053697

Great to try a new map together - just over a dozen at the peak.
No special guest this time, just myself and Tank - back from a month-long time away so not time to organise anything!

Next event will be Trenches, as voted at the end of this stream.
