    Paulie,

    We should get Duke Nukem 3D on this list too...

    I seen NukemNet out there. Not sure how well it works...

    That might be neat!! I see another Zandronum version that runs Quake... I wish there was some sort of server software (Like DoomSeeker) that lets us play all those retro FPS games...

    It would be hard on the server host to change or host all the different games on different softwares. However, yea- Duke 3D is pretty awesome.

    Something to consider. Quake is a good one too!

    Anyways, had a great time playing Doom. Had to jump off...

    Until next time.

    There's MANY others involved, but I'm happy to be involved, too. YEA! Another killer DOOM meetup - in 2024. We won't let this ish die!

    No, keep this up for sure!

    Let's also look into NukemNet and what we can do there. Problem appears that everyone needs to join the lobby before starting the game.

    You need the following and NetDuke32 comes with a ton of maps!

    NukemNet
    NetDuke32
    Duke32.grp (Atomic Edition) - Placed in NetDuke32 directroy
    Duke.rts (Automic Edition) - Placed in NetDuke32 directroy

    Same here - 6pm local time saturday night, and I was cooking for a
    dinner party. I'm glad Paulie keeps the server going during the week,
    everyone should jump in if they see someone on it.

    I've seen the posts about these Doom meetups, and some time I might join. It sounds fun. I used to like to lpay a lot of DOS games back in the day, and then played them on the internet via Kali for a while.

    TBH, mikethemac is hosting the 2oFB DOOM meetup server - but yes, its certainly awesome that we can play DOOM at any time during the month and meet up with around 20 players each 1st Saturday of the month.

    6PM PST / 9PM EST - Come get some DOOM deathmatch frags in May!!!! 05/04/2024!!!

    Its been a very successful 'bbs meetup' for the past 4 months - I think we have infrastructure to continue, so no rush - but do come join us when you can!!!

    Its really great to continue playing these old games in 2024 - isn't that AWESOME!?! :P

    I may be able to support something like this.

    Drop in and shoot me a page or a message and we can chat a bit more about it?

    mikethemac hosts it, but I believe its just on his enterprise server/VM machine.

    Cool, Doom meetup! I've been off BBS's for a while, but I'll be keen on jumping in on this. I do consider myself pretty good at this game.

    I'd forgotten how fast-paced DOOM deathmatches are! I can only play for
    around 10 minutes now. Back when it first came out, I'd play 6 player deathmatches for an hour or two after work.



    ... Where are we now?

    We hope you'll come joing us on 6/1/2024 - you can find infoz @ 2oFB BBS in the DOOM Menu; 20ForBeers.com:1337, but its fairly easy... just make sure you have Zandronum [current day DOOM client] and Doomseeker [current day netplay server client] installed. doom2.wad in the Zandronum .config folder, and search on Doomseeker for "20 FOR BEERS".

    We have a great time w/ around 25 players each month.. 6 active players at a time - last month there were some non-BBS players that came in, so we need m0re BBS r0ckstars....

    I hope to see you on June 1st, borax!

    I'll try to join. I have a meeting during the day, but I may be able to. Depends on the time difference, I'm in Australia so I'll have to make sure I take into account the time difference!

    I used to play with friends, in person. They'd come bring their machines and we'd rock on with 3 or 4 players.

    The DOOM meetups have been great (even for us who only got a chance to drop in for a few minutes). Since the server is online the rest of the month also, there's opportunity to check out the maps and play against bots or even setup some player vs player matches. If you end up unable to make it to the DOOM match, don't give up hope! :)

    In-person DOOM matches were always a blast, hard to ever beat those times! The modern online matches at least bring back some of that charm. :)
