Good to see the Darklord back amongst the fray, however, his awesome omnipresent use of the forces of Darkness and the relentless unsettling onslaught wasn’t enough to intimidate Tone into submission, who once again held off all challengers to retain the coverted trophy after some very close racing.
The round was not without it’s problems though, with the old lag gremlin taking it’s toll again, a few unsheduled breaks, and the unexplained system outage of the Deathstar – could it be sabotage?

Several Team Deathmatch rounds were played in the village streets, however, the results weren’t displayed long enough to be recorded. After some furiously heated close quarter combat, especially in the building with the machine gun nest, it became apparent that team Edge was once again no match for the powers of Darkness.

* Fred had the same problem a few weeks ago. It appears that the Momo wheel’s accellerator pedal slowly fades from giving full throttle, possibly due to a build up of dust/carpet particles. Fred has successfully dismantled his pedals and cleaned them with alcohol and a squirt of WD40. Screws can be found under the rubber floor protectors.
Tone found that by unplugging then reconnecting the controller teporarily fixed the problem,
Rundown: As the Director, Tone takes some responsibility for a fairly unsettled night. With irregular breaks, a system problem, controller issues, some lag in the V8’s and a fair bit of whinging occuring. "COME ON GUY’S, NO FIGHTING – THIS IS THE WAR ROOM". The Edge infastructure coped well despite the cold.
NEXT WEEK: If you have it, install & practice Medal of Honour – Pacific Assult.
