OLD SCHOOL FPS THREAD
Welcome, this thread is for fans of the old school, who still are playing or are interested in playing FPS from bygone times.
What:
>games you been playing?
>maps you been fragging on?
>modes you been losing at?

List of example games:
>Alien vs Predator
>Descent
>Doom
>Halo
>Jedi Knight
>Natural Selection
>Neotokyo/Dystopia/Source mods
>Quake
>Red Faction
>Red Orchestra
>Tribes
>Unreal Tournament
>Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory

>can we get a server up for ____?
If you want a /vm/ server ask ITT. Some games have them already and some kind anons host if you ask nicely. Otherwise there's plenty of empty servers to hijack.
>Do people play ____?
Even the deadest of games still have active evenings or weekends.

I've been playing Dystopia for the first time. I didn't realize there was still people playing it.
It's pretty good, I like the spider mines and bunny hopping around as a heavy railgunning and punching lights in the face.

Tons of Neotokyo lately. Should get back into quake.

Is Dystopia worth any playing? Also, I'd like it if we got a Wolf:ET game session going. Suck to be a eurofag and only have bots populating the servers.

Dystopia is worth trying, It's NA servers but i'm EU and it's fine at 90 ping. It's far more polished and finished than Neotokyo. Kinda like a weird mix of Neotokyo and W:ET.
Speaking of W:ET, it has a big EU playerbase. Filter bots. Make sure you're on the ETLegacy client
>>163882
I'm interested in AvP2. I've only played AvP1, which is a bit wonky on modern systems. The terrible rebellion/sega one too. Seems like there's a lot of people still playing in EU/RUS. Lot's of modded content as well. Wanna play this weekend? If anyone else is interested i'll post the download when I wake up later.

If you want to try Dystopia now is the time to do it because a recent update has brought some players back. You will probably like it if you like big objective based levels like in Enemy Territory or the multi-stage maps in TF2.

Keep an eye on this server because it sees the most activity: 52.6.23.249:27015

I want to play quake for the first time with a few friends, what game do I download?
>>
>>168893
For Quake 1 there's NQuake (https://www.nquake.com/) and for Quake 2 there's Tastyspleen's starter pack (http://q2s.tastyspleen.net/)

Neither one of these require you to buy their respective games. You just download them and you're good to go.

If you want to play Quake 3 you can use Quake3e (https://github.com/ec-/Quake3e) but this requires you to have the game files.

Quake Live is on Steam for 10 bucks

Quake Champions is f2p on Steam
>>
>>168927
which one do you recomend that has the old school playstyle? preferably the fastest
>>
>>168929
actually im changing my question, qhich one is simpler for setting up hosts and lobbies, or if it supports hamachi
>>
>>168935
You shouldn't have to use hamachi for any of these games. If you want lobbies then go for Quake Champions because it's the only game that has them. Every other Quake game uses a server browser.
>>
>>168967
So I can create a server easily? because if I need to port foward there might be a problem

I downloaded quake 2, how do I fix this?
>>
>>168968
Yeah you have to port forward to make a server. I take it you want to make your own server instead of joining an empty one because you don't want some pubstomper showing up and ruining everything?

>>168978
Go to options and see what 'video mode' and 'aspect ratio' are set to.
>>
>>168982
>Yeah you have to port forward to make a server
the thing is that I have NAT 3 so I can't port foward, I alredy tried everything, so maybe one of my friends could, and if it doesnt work we'll play with hamachi

Is there anyway to play BF2 multiplayer again?

There was a semi-official server running a few years ago but got squashed by the Kikes at EA.
>>
>>169013
stop perpetuating this retarded meme
all that dice told them was for them to stop hosting bf2 as if it were an official ea product and to stop giving away copyrighted materials for free (because they were giving away the game for free illegally)
and what did revive decide to do instead of just removing the game download? yeah they shut it down because they're retards
anyway, you can play it via this: https://www.bf2hub.com/home/
>>
>>168935
just get quake live, there's tons of empty servers you and your friends can hop on

Most people will be kind enough to let you play if you are just open about it. A trick you can use is telling people you hijacked the server for a noob cup.
The one that's most fast paced and old school is Q1 though. It's also the most fun when you're just bopping around as noobs since all the guns are OP as fuck.
>>169092
NS2 is pretty good in EU, NA seems to have lots of shitty modded servers though.

Reminder we are playing some UT2k4 this Saturday. GOG version works if you wanna pirate it. Even if we only get a few players we can still hop onto a busy freezetag/Onslaught server.
There's also Neotokyo every Friday and Dystopia most evenings.

It's better to just check. Most of these game nights are mix of old devs, community vets and /vm/ noobs. Times tend to be based around late or early evening depending if you are US/EU.
Here's a list of game nights I know are tonight
>Neotokyo
>Dystopia
>Red Faction
>Unreal Tournament 2004
>Tribes Revengeance
Most games have active pubs on the weekends or just evenings in general.

Just play. If you're scared of being beaten or simply don't want to get beat then you'll never enjoy the genre. It's an unavoidable experience for everybody.
If you want to get your feet wet first, try Warfork on steam. It's free and has a lot of noobs and zoomers trying it out all the time. The vets are also mostly linux dads that are much friendlier than the jaded schizos on QL or Q3.
I love seeing new players on AFPS, especially ones that are keen to learn and start destroying me after a few weeks or months.

>>
>>163850
Late response but you have to play the light or medium class and take the cyberdeck implant. Enhanced cyberdeck gives you more security options and drains your energy slower than regular cyberdeck but it takes more implant slots. Otherwise cyber is just like a small separate area used for capping objectives sometimes. Your energy meter is your health in cyber and when you lose all your energy you get disconnected, and if it's because of another player damaging you down to 0 you get decked out temporarily where the jack-in point can't be used for a few seconds. You also take a bit of health damage when that happens, but you can deck out by pressing F1 before you hit 0 to avoid that. You can also do something like a rocket jump by right clicking at the ground as you jump in cyber and it only takes like 1 energy to do it. The security options let you put up a temporary defense on objectives in cyber that can slow down an opposing hacker or deck them out if they aren't careful taking them down.

Takes a little while to learn how it works because the layouts and functions vary a lot between maps. Might be a good idea to just mess around on a local server in cyber until you get the bare basics of it. Let me know if you have any other questions about it.
>>
>>175349
Yeah. Halo Reach and 3 both have the mouse camera anchored to the player model. On Reach it's awful and feels like you're swinging a brick around. On 3 it's the same but it works mostly fine. The only thing that giving it away is frame drops stopping mouse movement.
2's input is normal afaik. On CE it's OS dependent lol.
Supposedly the only fix for the netcode was for the BR, Tank rounds and other hitscan can still vanish into thin air.

Apparently the build was rushed out the door and wasn't final. It's a shame because I think with modding it could have been the best Tribes game. I like the movement, hitting perfect routes isn't as important and you can do some crazy flag steals and evasive maneuvers if you're good at it. That singleplayer is total trash though.

To this day it is one of the greatest butchery of aesthetics in any franchise I've enjoyed as they went from cool sleek power armor to some atrocious comic book style with ridiculous jet engines strapped on everyone's back. Gameplay wise it felt worse to me than T1 or T2 Classic but it's still much better than Tribes Ascend which Midair tried hard to pander to with their LCTF gamemode. Actually the more I think about Midair and their awful aesthetic, the more appealing Vengeance becomes in retrospect. Just goes to show things can and will get worse but that initial shock of coming home all excited and installing Tribes Vengeance and then experiencing the atrocious SP campaign will always make me resent the game. I don't think Tribes couldn't have a proper SP campaign though, just do one in the vein of Starsiege but infantry focused. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1sgdLSkrTQ

I don't agree that they entirely butchered it but I agree it's worse. I always found it interesting Tribes 1/2 had a lot of simulationist elements that made it feel closer to something like Arma than AFPS games.
I also hate the midair visuals, I just hate the over reliance on shaders for game art now, I really liked when games looked crunchy and clean.
