Aye, just a Photoshop gag peeps, saw the new Sandtrooper in the shops and noticed that it was the first version to include the MG-15 blaster rifle which we use in the mod, it is rarely seen elsewhere, though recently there has been I think it was a Gentle Giant, Artefex or Sideshow Sandtrooper statue that also included the weapon. Also more recently as it has gained more recognition it has finally been given an official name (we called it an MG-15 based on it's real world weapon the blaster is based on as it had no Star Wars name at the time), the RT-97C.

I like to think that it's high profile role in our mod helped raise awareness of this particular weapon and got it a bit more love all round.

Anyhow as I said, saw it in a store and saw pure comedy gold in the making.

Welcome to the fold Airsoftzekk.

Saturday and Sunday nights are your best bet as that is when the Community Games are played, still just get on an empty server any time and people will tend to join.

Will look at putting up our server with a mix of co-op and standard maps on again.

Hi usablucape, there are plenty of timezone converters out there which can give you a conversion from GMT to your time zone in seconds, but because you asked so nicely.

19:00GMT converts to 14:00 U.S. Eastern/EST.

Oh, and the Teamspeak 3 server details for this event have now been updated on the news post above.

Hi DarkDiablos, no your BF2142 account will not be affected. As a mod this constitutes modified content and as such will not add to your BF2142 stats. First Strike has its own stats system which is independent of this, the results of which and can be viewed at our website.

Follow the installation instructions and you should be fine.

Being in Germany is no bad thing, First Strike players are mostly European so the time zones should be just fine for you. This weekend's event for example starts at 19:00 GMT a very Euro friendly time, and being the weekend we'll most likely get a few of our friends from the other side of the pond too.

Should be around half a dozen servers, is quiet around now, but get on at the weekend and it should be busier, also just pop on an empty server and people usually start to appear.

If you're not even seeing these servers you might need to check that you have everything set up correctly on the server menu screen, check this article for details on that:

None for Christmas, but we may have something organised for very early in the New Year, will keep you posted. In the meantime bob on-line on Saturdays and Sundays as these are the event nights, also possibly other nights in the week now we're in the holidays.

If you don't have the original disc that could be the problem, you need that to run BF2142, and in turn First Strike.

That said, with the holidays coming up we might see more regular player activity, so just bob on and see who's about.

I was on my own for about 5 minutes last night on a server, and then one other player joined, and then another, and so on, I think it peaked at about 6 to 8 people on last night which isn't great, but it just goes to show that if you jump on a server people will come.

There are games on at this time every weekend (maybe you just got unlucky with your timing Doyle), that is when people should try and get on to see a high number of players, sometimes it is a little hit and miss and there might not be as many players as usual, but that is still the best time to try. Also we will look at putting on more well advertised date specific events as these seem to pull in more players who have not tried the mod before, but aim to get on at around 8pm GMT any weekend night and you should find people on.
