[page=modDB @ Free Play 2005 - Thursday, Meet up Day!]
Fork, BigBird and Tarky landed in a cold wet Melbourne this morning. First stop for the ModDB fellas in this strange land, was a pub too quench our thirsts with a few ales.

After waiting around in the driving rain waiting for a taxi, and yelling abuse at taxi stealers, our next stop was a quick detour to McDonalds to grab a quick bite for lunch.
Then off we went in search of the Next Wave Office, the hub of the Free-Play organisation, to find some bandwidth to suck and to get some space to spread out and get into making our video presentation for Free-Play.
(The sign on the door, what a piece of art!)
Many thanks to Nextwave for accomodating us in our time of need.

Day 2 started early with the modDB video development which soon turned to drama when Laptop batteries starterd to die. Unfortunatly we didn't actualy get the video ready for our presentation due to the fact that Tarky screwed up by rendering the wrong video.
Anyway we went ahead with our presentation with the Dystopia boys which went pretty damn smooth even without the video and with the biggest croud of the day! Here are a few pics from Day 2 @ Free Play! Videos soon to follow!

So that is basically day 2 for now. Stay tuned for videos and more images coming tomorrow! Now if you dont mind, me and BigBird are off for more beers!

Today is LAN day. Basically what this means is people play mods and games on PC's. I was actually contacted by the organisers a few weeks ago for a list of mods that should be played on the LAN so I gave them a good list, but all I can say is .. once people got stuck into Dystopia, there was no turning back. What was supposed to be an hour 'go' with Dys turned into a 6 hour frag fest with just Dystopia playing.
As usual we got a few images of the event so enjoy them!

Basically I know there aren't many images but we have a crapload of video which will be cut together and posted up for everyone aswell! Please do enjoy images we post tho! :D

Basically today was about people just showing off their stuff. Be it game company's, indy devs, High profile people or even University's! Once again, not a huge ammount of pics due to us being flat out, but there are enough for now till the video comes!
(This was our little setup. It actually looked rather cool!)
Ok so thats it for the images for now. I have about 100 more but well, to be honest I'm tired and I've got alot to do with some videos! So, stay tuned for the videos of the event including an interview with the Dystopia boys.
