FNF - TF2/Brawl - New Reserve Procedure - Please Read!


Brawl - IRC Instructions:

To connect to IRC:

1) Go to Dynasty Net's java chat
2) Type in your nickname
3) dtoid-brawl as the channel
4) Click Chat

Simple and easy to use, if you want to use voice chat, I suggest steam or skype.

If you are having lag problems, check the Wii section of this guide.

Team Fortress 2

Just a reminder if you can't get onto the server, please join the auxillary server following the instructions below.

Also, plug for the forums, if you haven't joined up you should :)

With the increase to 25 slots on the server, you will need to do something a little more technical to access your reserved slot. In order to keep the server listed, the maximum players you will see in your browser is 24, the 25th is a hidden connection slot. If you attempt to join when it is 24/24 it will not allow you to.

In order to use the 25th slot you MUST CONNECT MANUALLY

1) Start TF2
2) Open the Console
3) type connect


3) type connect tf2.ams-sec.org:27015

You need not memorize the IP, in the view server details window you can see the IP and copy/paste it from there into console.

This setup is better overall because it allows there to be even teams during pub times, and it does not discourage casual browsers, previously if a pubber would try to join at 23/24 they would get immediately booted and this is not necessarily good for the servers image, or retaining players.

--Usual Copy Pasta--

UPDATED - Map pack can be downloaded here

Again, if you would like to get placed on the reserved slot list for dtoid readers, please POST YOUR STEAMID HERE. Your reserved slot is a privilege, not a right, and asshattery will get it revoked.
