Here are a couple of pics from last weekends Staff test LAN.

This should give you an idea of the area we will be in the layout etc.

1577  NeXus LAN - Gaming Discussion Forums / PC General Discussion / Re: PC COD4 Maps on: June 03, 2008, 01:09:17 PM
Yeah IF there are no issues right away from the patch I will upgrade the servers to 1.6 but going to watch the net for a day before I do it.   The maps will be added to the rotation for sure probably more then once with different modes so they pop up more often as they are new.

I would say plan to be 1.6 for the tournaments though.

As for the grenade kill cam I would assume the killcam off setting turns both off but will check into it.

OK the final food list is above.  NOTE there will be no hot dogs as that was an issue that could not be worked out with cooking equipment.   

We will have pop, candy, chips, beef jerky, energy drinks available.

The LAN is monthly setup for 3 tournaments a month.   This month we are doing 2 PC and 1 Wii.  Next mont it will be something on the 360 etc.

If you would like to run an un official tournament feel free.
1581  NeXus LAN - General Discussion Forums / General Discussion / Consoles at the LAN on: May 28, 2008, 10:43:14 AM
Hey all,

On the subject of consoles.   We will have a limited # of open play consoles at the events.   Usually 2-3 units 360, wii, xbox 1 etc.    We will try to have what is needed for tournaments most of the time for instance when only 1 or 2 units needed.   When we do larger console tournaments like 4 on 4 Halo 3 or larger etc those tournaments will require people to bring there own equipment as we just cant supply that many units.  I personally prefer to bring my own unit when playing if allowed.

All paid attendee's get with there admission a spot for 1 PC or 1 Console.  Power connection, and 1 network jack.  So console players will be given space to setup there consoles and access to the LAN if needed/wanted.

1590  NeXus LAN - General Discussion Forums / General Discussion / Re: What is your favorite mouse? on: May 13, 2008, 01:31:35 PM
I am using a Logitech G7 Wireless Laser.   This is by far the best fitting, most comfortable mouse I have used.   Its way more accutate then my old Microsoft optical mouse and my Logitech optical.  I love the look of it.  Has 2 rechargable batteries and a base station that the wireless reciever and spare battery plug into.   If I dont want to take the station with me just take out a little reciever (looks like a small mem key) and the spare battery and go.  I can get 24+ hours of gaming out of 1 battery not tried to run one out completly yet though so not sure how long it will last total hours.
