Hello,

We might be playing NS1 gathers this weekend. Feel free to join.

When?
Saturday or Sunday 18-20 CET.

How?
https://www.ensl.org/gathers/latest/ns1

Steam group:
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/enslgathers

Discord
https://discord.gg/a8dT2cn

Teamspeak 3
server: ensl.org
channel pw: europe

NS1 Server
ENSL #2
ip: ensl.org (62.210.113.95)

How to play:
Install Half-Life from Steam, assuming you have it purchased (10-20e)

Option 1: Install manually
* Get latest NS (currently ns_v322_full.zip) from: https://github.com/ENSL/NS/releases
* Unzip it into Half-Life folder (eg. c:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\)
* Restart Steam
Option 2: Use installer (recommended)
* Download: https://github.com/ENSL/NaturalLauncher/releases

Just start game from library and connect to ensl.org

Spectator policy
You can spectate NS1 pick-up games if you want. In fact if you are new, watch a few games in spectator mode. They are played on ensl.org server. Password is either europe or america.

Troubleshooting
If for some magical reason it won't show up in library, start Half-Life with "-game ns" in launch options

Other stuff (OPTIONAL):
1. You can install nL pack if you want less user interface clutter, ambient sounds etc:

I am not sure if that is trolling or if they think it is NS2 ..

Or are there NS2 ppl that want to try NS1 Gathers?

They joined ENSL.org when NS was alrdy dead ... i am confused and somewhat sceptic about the legitimacy of the hype!

I was way too young to have any affiliation with ensl at the time, but that doesn't stop someone from playing a game.
Have some more faith in the community =]

Can you post here any issues you had with the client.

I didn't play the gather but i tried that client a while ago and iirc there were issues with the popup menu like the player view would move while you moved the cursor. with the linux patch at least at a certain point the fps dependent timings were a bit off from the previous version since there was some change in how the fps cap worked or how it was reported. not sure if that still is an issue though.

It'd be nice to have physics set to to 125fps values and run the game at a higher fps, but that'd probably be a lot of work and testing for a dead game.

If you have a bug with the rebuild client (v3.2.1.a) you can report this at https://github.com/Bacsu/NS/issues
Please post as much info as possible with operating system and how to reproduce this.

Example:

[Linux] I lost my aim.

im ready to play if anybody is down. also i would like to know why the people that are playing only enjoy 6v6.

I was told by one guy that it creates balance issues when there is more than that, but i fondly remember 32 player servers full, being a lot of fun.

i got my ns1 install from bryns, its still up with files... amazingly.

Anyway, anyone remember how to do custom crosshairs, transparent comm menus or get rid of the ambient sounds? (or make them less loud?)

For now the games are 6v6 because it's the competitive format and where the game is balanced, especially with low player numbers. If the server starts to fill up with specs though I think it might be worth picking teams with everyone we can get and just starting it as a pub from there just to try it some time.

If you're from Brazil your ping might be too high for it to be worth playing though, maybe you get ok ping to europe though idk.

Hi, new around here. Used to play quite a bit more than 10 yrs ago. How do gathers work exactly? After signing up, what happens once there's actually 12 people ready to play? How do we schedule the time to play, where do we contact each other etc,?

Go to the gather page and sign up. You may vote for a server and map.
Once 12 people have signed up, the gather starts and you may vote for a captain. You might have to start a new gather however, if some of the 12 people were afk.
Afterwards, just join TS3 and the server. You probably want to add people on steam so you can more easily see if gathers are on / join the right server.
