Hi anyone who has nothing better to do than read this post (I mean who cares about new posts. lol)! I'm Mark Cartwright from Belrin, Gemany. I am, however, an American citizen (a Texan, at that) and enjoy playing Outpost 2. It is really an outstanding game and would be even more fun to play with other people; but, sadly, I have not yet had the opportunity to sharpen my skills by playing head-to-head over LAN or TCP/IP.
It's been a couple of weeks (I think) since I've joined, and so I'm finally putting up this introduction/bio. I have a couple of Q's about playing IRC, though. Can it be done within a LAN? Can OP2 be played freely across the Internet even though I may be in a LAN? I heard that sometimes the IP for every computer in a LAN is identical for Internet servers. Might that pose a problem?
I am not an OP2 master, however. I played it a LOT when I had it 6 years ago, but then gave the game to a friend. Now, though, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the OPU team, I can play one of my favorite strategy games again!
Anyway, if someone wants to play a game with me, I'm game. And, if you want to practice your German, Russian, or whatever, I like to practice foreign languages, too. Oh, by the way, I'm 18 and I graduated from high school last Friday, June 25th. Looking forward to some games and chats!
