A lot of the veteran members here will remember me, but for the new ones, I'm Drakmar (more commonly known as James these days) and I've been around since the old NHCS days. I've recently rediscovered my deep love for the game and have gotten back into it. Even introduced a few of my co-workers and friends to the classic.

Blah, I hate doing those. From what I can see, the forums aren't quite as active as I remember them being in the past. Hopefully I just happened to return from my extended hiatus at one of our many lull periods. :)

Not sure about the Lull period the forums have been in a state of atrophy with the most activity being done by two people in the spam section. Im not even sure if the IRC is still running at this point.

I have to admit that Newterrancommandsite has drawn most of the attention left at Outpostuniverse. Even though it's currently a bit quit there, too. And as far as I know there hasn't been an OPU IRC channel for a fairly long time. NTCS does have a chat though. That's why anyone who wants to chat is there.
Praise the mighty light towers!!!

Yea, OPU is almost dead.  There are 3 main reasons I see for this:
  • Our site admins either have lost interest or are too busy with real world responsibilities
  • Our older members have a tendency to shoot down new members who try to start up new discussions because "we've already discussed that in full, here's the archive link"
  • Many people have become complacent with the idea that there is no point in trying to keep the game going anymore

Hello All, I am formerly known as Peacemaker.

Just checking in to see how things are. I just downloaded the recent version and would like to test the netfix if anyone is up for it

Hello MSteele0. Nice that you come back (although I don't remember a "Peacemaker". If you want to play games, you should join us on irc (#outpost2 on irc.quakenet.org). You'll need some patience, since many people there are idling most of the time.

I'm tempted to say a young one, but that must mean I'm getting old.

Welcome.

Hello, I am entropino, I am currently 18 but when I first played outpost 2 I was a lot younger(was no native speaker so I failed a lot). Maybe I will try to get into this game again, I watched an (unfinished) lp of the game (2) some time ago  and with that also got very interested in the story(which I seem to need to finish myself), maybe I will become competent enough to try multiplayer in the future. I like to play: Stronghold, Majesty and I want to play Conquest of Elysium 3 online once(I also want to try perimeter online). I like roguelikes, and lore/story heavy games(I am currently interested in king of dragon pass)

I was clearly to young, and I basically only build the things that were already in the construction yard, and entertained myself just watching the AI do it's thing.

Welcome entropino :) You sound like a RTS gamer, like many of us here. Outpost 2 is a classic and worth the time to learn. We have a chatroom, hope to see you there and we can help you with multiplayer.

Chatroom info here: irc.outpostuniverse.org

Hi Outpost_Pete here. Love the Outpost 1.5 game and the revamped work done for the download.(Have played 2.0 but not as enjoyable.) Thanks cause my original disc does not work on current computer! Download version is a little glitch y unless I turn down screen resolution to half. I have always wondered why? Does it have to do with being written for for 1994 - 32 bit computer/now on 64 bit 2016 thing?

Welcome!

Outpost was written for 16-Bit computers (specifically Windows 3.1 which never came in a 32bit version). 32Bit flavors of Windows were able to run 16bit code using an emulation core (NTVDM I believe) which was dropped in 64Bit versions.

If you have any issues running the package we put together head on over there and post away, I'll gladly answer any questions you may have.

Hello, welcome.

My current computer has no optical drive. They're getting pretty rare these days. I have piles of old CDs and DVDs at home, but nothing to read them with anymore.

Hint: USB External optical drive. At most $20 in the US. No idea in Cambodia or China or wherever you are these days.

I'm locking this thread since we don't really need a master thread in a dedicated forum. Introductions are still welcome, just create your own threads.
