XMPP hasn't been active for quite some time. New Terran Command site still uses it but the channel isn't very active.

We've revived the older IRC Channel on QuakeNet -- you don't have to download an IRC client if you don't want to. You can use the "Chat" link at the top of the page or visit webchat.quaketnet.org. Channel is #Outpost2

Sundays are usually the best time to get a hold of people for games but you can drop in any time. It's still not as active as it use to be but if you're patient you'll get a response. :)

And welcome to the forums!

thanks for the heads up, I appreciate it!

hope to get a game going with some people for old games sake, I'm rather attached to outpost2, would (and still) play it for hours on end.

As are a lot of us! That's why we're here. :)

I'm personally more attached to Outpost vs Outpost 2: 1) Outpost always held my fascination, probably because I received it as a gift when I was 11 and 2) when I was playing Outpost 2 about 12 years ago with others from OPU I wasn't looking for fast paced games but that's all anybody ever seemed to want to do so it left a bitter feeling for me.

But that's just me, there are plenty of others who enjoy OP2 and Saturday's / Sunday's you'll frequently see other users pop onto IRC for some games.
