fred top scorer for Edge Elite after successfully capturing several bases, while Tone attempted to distract the enemy with some uncoordinated flying stunts.
Some very close air to air combat with plenty of low level flying,
ultimately the Darkside triumphed 375-0
Gulf of Oman
Darklord joined Fred and Tone against Woodie and Raw.
Unfortunately DL copped some friendly fire – old habits are hard to break – lol.
Good close combat with air support from tone.

Call of Duty 

Battlefield 2 (possibly some maps without air support or commanders)

A relaxed play by ear evening is intended.
See ya then then.


Present: Wood [3IC], Dark, Parts, Fred, Tone, Mick (via ICC).

A laid back evening with plenty of action, breaks and technical challenges.

Colin McRae kicked of the evening with Fred dominating the racing after what must have been some furious practice during the week. Mick was able to host some games over the WAN which we joined. It seems that for technical reasons, no games can be hosted by Edge for now.

Battlefield 2 was played out for the remainder of the evening. This highly addictive game kept 4 of us pounding pixels till 3.00am.

V8SC2: Collision ON, Damage OFF, no shunting please.
Round 1: Convertible World Tour: Servers, Kyalami, Vallelunga, Shortwood Park, Loch Rannoch 1
Round2: DTM: Hockenheim Ring, Adira Raceway, Eurospeedway, Zandvoort, Hockenheim Ring.
Battlefield2: your turn to win

Rollcall: Canon (3IC), Dark, Wood, RawT, Fred, Tone, (Mick Vidio/audio link from ICC.)
A good and lengthy evenigs entertainment, the link up with Mick causing some distration for Tone, hence a bit light on for the results. We managed to get a few races over the net though with varying success. Canon ran the evening admirably, his choices being limited by installed games and technical issues. Darklord rebuilt his pc during the evening after a bios attack earlier, so was unfortunately MIA for most of the evening.


A nice variety of track and vehicles had us fairly evenly paced, in a more relaxed racing atmosphere. Lag was still experienced, with collision on for the first race, so was turned off for the rest of the night.

This game is excellent! Looks nice, runs well with fairly scailable graphics demand, although it does require a DirectX9 compatable Vid Card! Another uprade for TI4200 owners. With plenty of variety in game play and maps, domination from the air isn’t quite as easy compared to 1942, as there’s a new arsenal of weapons and vehicles for ground troops to utilise and more cover. I’ve played it online with 64 players and experienced no lag. With the high level realism of bullets whizzing past your ears and richocheting about, I anticipate this will be a regular feature in future Edge missions.
Reccommended purchase.

Medal of Honour – Pacific Assult (NEW!)
I loved it!! I got the first kills with the "Daily Double"!!
Bayonetted the Darklord after running out of ammo at close range, then got the DD again!!!
An overwhelming triumph by Team Edge – Canon, Fred & Tone.

We’ve finally found a FPS where Team Edge kicked some serious Darkside Butt, But it immediatly got canned by the losers with these excuses:
Big maps with not much variation, lots of folage, but lacking the features and control smothness of COD, and unfortuntately, I happen to agree.
We only played one map, and it Looks like we probably won’t be revisiting that one. The scores weren’t displayed long enough by Darklord to be recorded.

Soldier of Fortune II Gold
We soon switched to an old favourite so that team Darkside could re-group and regain some composure.
House warming: Darklord 90 Wood 61 – Tone 12 Canon 10 Fred 3
Roof Top: Scores not recorded – win to Darkside.

In preperation,earlier in the evening Fred kindly disassembled, soaked and sprayed Tone’s MOMO footpeddals, which successfully fixed the fading accellerator problem. Then his steering quit working.
After this was sorted, despite all efforts to ensure everyone’s pc’s were set up correctly, the lag gremlins played havoc. Collision was sadly turned off for the second race, but ensuing instabillity problems with both Team Darkside machines cut the V8 Challenge short – it just wasn’t meant to be.

ROUNDUP: An evening beset with unexpected problems. Because of this, having a "Game Plan" was no help as it could not be adhered to. Discussions took place about the "pilot" and as a result, it has been decided to appoint a "Director of Operations (3IC)" for a one rotation trial. This person will choose the games, send a ‘heads up’ email to agents in advance, and oversee the general flow of the evening, in consultation Tone who will remain 2IC, after SWMBO.  For now, this esteemed position will rotate around five agents with the most consistent attendance records, Darklord, Canon, Wood, Fred & Tone, however, anyone may volunteer for a future event. They can have my turn, seems as I’ve done it for a year.

NEXT WEEK:  To kick things along, Darklord is appointed DirOps 3IC (and has duly accepted) for the evening. Canon, Wood, Fred then Tone will direct the following weeks as a trial. It’s in their hands now!

STANDARD GAMES which should be installed
Call of Duty, Soldier of Fortune, Colin McRae, V8 SC2 (May be changed depending on GT testing)
I’ve looked at Battlefield2 and can report that this is an awesome game!! No need for MOH-PA when we have this!!
