Next DGS LAN:
|To Be Announced|
|To Be Announced|
With some help from krhainos, I am proud to post some old DGS pictures from our old parties. You can see them by clicking "History" at the top of the page. Since Codex deleted all the pics after kicking the site off his server one day, these pics from 4 parties are almost all the pics I have from these days. If you have more, or can get codex or bobomega to actually find theirs, I would appreciate and get them posted as soon as I could. Until then, enjoy a quick trip down memory lane!
I might add pics from other LANs, including Minilans since there's no other really great place to put them. Let me know what you think. Sound off in the quiet forums!
Hey I know this site has been really, really dormant for a long time, but something has come along that might make it useful again. Last week I got to play q3 with Dan over the interwebs and we thought it would be a good idea to start playing online on a more regular basis. To help with that, we thought creating forums would be a good way to get some more online play going. To that end, I have installed the pmachine forum module onto this site. Click on "Forum" at the top of the page to access it. It's not the most technically advanced forum in the world, in fact it's pretty much just links and text. But it does integrate with the user names on this site, so there aren't two separate logins. Over time if/when it picks up I can look into hacking some avatars and signatures on it. If you can't remember your login, try the lost password feature and if you still need help or dont remember the email you need, ask me and I can help. Oh, and the forums are powered by RSS too so you can stay up to date without having to watch the site too closely as well.
I really do hope we can start to play some more fps online. Dan's getting into the classic games like q3 and cs:source again. I also think it'll be fun to revisit some old games and it should be relatively free to do so. Sound off in the forum!
The Lo-Res first version of our clan trip to Quakecon is available for download from our special Quakecon 2005 page located at this link. Even though it's lo-res, it's still a 138mb file with 320x240 video, and xvid compression. Our server will probably take forever to upload it to you, so watch the download page for new sources, in the next day or so. Thanks for your interest! Rombus will release his two videos in the coming weeks, so watch for those as well! comments
Members, please be advised you must log into the site to view member-only content. Contact Eclipse for details. Thank you. comments
Good things are being planned for the DGS. Please keep with us as we prepare to announce our first LAN date. comments
Hey! Quick post to report that the IRC chat room is working again. You can use any IRC program or the "Chat" link at the top to connect. For those who use their own program, connect to
If you use the website, it will connect automatically. I have yet to get NickServ working, so anyone could be anyone at the moment.
But probably not how you're expecting it.
Instead of an outright, pay-to-play LAN party like we did in the past, I am reorganizing the DGS into the first Galactic Empire...no...I mean I am reorganizing it to give some more direction to our GarageLANs this summer. I know I am starting late, but I think it will work. Rombus and I are converting one of the now-vacant rooms in the house into a LAN room. We will have pictures of the status as we go along. Still have quite a ways to go. I know you're thinking "Aww...another website I have to go to?", but I plan to put an RSS feed from this site to merkur.sytes.net, so news from this site should pop up there too.
Basically, I figure that we can have LANs when and where we want, post them here and get back into LANs. It's been a while since we've had one and I hope this page will lead to more. I figure we can call ourselves the Dead Gamers' Society. Wonder where I came up with that one?
I removed the sponsors from the website on account that we have none, and replaced it with the members page. I pre-registered most people already. IM me for your passwords. Once you log in, you can post entires and change your password and account options.
Please vote on a day to hold the LANs here.
This is a work in progress so stay tuned.
