Xfire group up and running.
« on: September 02, 2009, 05:43:12 AM »
Should make it easier to communicate and get games setup as you don't have to add every new player that comes along to your list. It's currently open to the public, so just search for it under communities and join up.

(Will still be a couple days before I do anything with it, though, as I'm still waiting for Paypal's damn "echeck" to clear ;p)

Very cool!  Thanks for setting that up. I've stickied this topic.
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games?  Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

Group is here http://www.xfire.com/communities/aiwar/

ash - you'll need to keep an eye on the pending applications as you get no email notification, I  manage an xfire group and that is the downside. You have 2 waiting to join :)

In the admin panel there is a way to have a group automatically accept any and all requests to join. There are a number of other important buttons on that same panel that may come in use.

Nevermind, looks like he already found the button :)

Yea, I initially intended to set it so that anyone could join from the start, but as I set this up at 5am I forgot to change it from the default setting ;p

In the chat room "aiwar" name is dub444. I'm willing to start a game tonight if anybody wants to get on.

You will have much better luck getting a game if you join the IRC channel http://arcengames.com/irc/aiwar_irc.php

I love XFire, but everyone else is on IRC already  ;)

I'd be surprised with a game like ai war that will generally require a number of sittings to complete whether either method would work unless you know the oerson and their game times.

Hi guys,

I have a dedicated TS sever which you xfire people are all welcome to use, not sure if something similar is in place already.

Theres a couple of guys including myself who are generally always online outside of working hours.

I'll post details when I get home this evening and also join the xfire group.

Kind regards,

Mavvvy

Sweet! Our own Teamspeak server! If it is good, no more do we all have to fuss with connecting to some random guy hosting our voice chat!
