I meant to make this post last night :)

I've played through the campaign on normal, which actually took a while, but it is lots of fun. Source looks properly nice again! I am now browsing the SDK docs, because I have ideas. Sadly it appears it will not work with VS2010, and since I'd have to download one fresh I'd probably go the most recent.

The main problem is that there are no, or at least very few dedicated servers, so you end up with a bunch of people local hosting, and that's bad times. I was getting ~280 - 400 ms sometimes! Which is obviously dreadful.

My computer hates me. That's the main problem for me. I really wanted to play it so I downloaded it with some friends. Then it began!

I tried to run it. My desktops changed for 2 seconds then back, then AS chrashed, without any error. Try multiple times, not working. I googled it and it said I should try to delete a folder in the installation. I did, had to redownload the entire game in steam. It said that some files were missing, well no shit, I removed them.

I reinstalled and thought it might be the same problem I had with Killing Floor, so I made my extra screen useless (still plugged it but all black and not doing anything) and that the problem was because I had dual screens. I started it and got an error. That's atleast easier to google. I restarted my extra screen and got to a steam support site and did the 2 things it told me too, tried again, nothing. Shut down my extra screen again, same problem. Googled some more. nothing.

I shut down my main screen with my extra screen running, was able to start it. Wasn't able to play practise (wanted to learn the controls, after release and such) and it crashed. Was invited to a game by my friend, the server was annoying for my computer to connect to so I got the "25(countdown) seconds left before auto disconnection" for 3 seconds every 30 seconds play time.

I played with a bunch of people who had never played the game before who weren't aware of friendly fire and didn't know how little ammo you have.

...
Lovely game when it works, though.

It is rather. We did a hard run tonight :) it ended up with one guy running to the Bloodhound, Aliens... well... swarming around him. Good times. If you like, I can try to help with your errors, because I've spent quite a while around Source. And it's quite stable :)

Connection issues will either be: your firewall, not allowing the game in/out. This probably isn't your problem on Windows 7. It could be because the person's internet you're playing on is quite slow, in which case, there's not a huge amount you can do. It could be that their firewall is blocking Alien Swurm (yes Swurm) so you can ask them to fix that... Dunno what else. Some of my friends and I might rent a server, it's so much better when you don't have a half-second lag going down :p

Tell you what, if you can find my Steam name on this site, and can put up with HORRIFIC connections because you're a few thousand miles away, we'll play with you. Probably not worth it for you, eh? :p

"for example mine would (maybe) be like 'C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Down Rodeo\cstrike\maps'" is the closest thing I found.

AHA! GOTCHA: Killatron40k!

And... probably not anyways, because of the rest you wrote.
Superjer didn't answer to a question more than 2 years ago. Why he has 4 accounts...

Well, if you could fix my errors(or help me fix my errors), I'd be so freaking happey dude! It was probably the server I was trying to connect to that was lagging but still.

Still want me to add you to friends list?

Yeah, go ahead. I occasionally get random requests, presumably through this forum, so you'll have to say you've added me :) otherwise you might end up in the "ignore/block" list :D

And I'll happily run from aliens with you, Jake?!

I was playing it. I shot the alien but then there was another. It was weird, I think the game is broken.

As RockPaperShotgun reminded me, it is important to keep your Aliens Warm.

Did I already post that here?

You sound like a Cyberman. According to my Steam you were last online three hours ago; three hours ago I was in town. Presumably we are just feeling the time-zone effectification.

I was drunk, when I posted last which explains the cyberman vibe.

I can't seem to find you on my offline or online list so probably I just fail.
