Artemis: Child's Play Event

Download Artemis, if you have an extra key to run it that would be appreciated. Show up with an eager mind, and some good times will be had.

    Please state if you are bringing a laptop! Also, spare power boards, USB cables and USB hubs would be appreciated.

      I'm going to make a bunch of cables after going to Game Theory and meeting with Abe to figure out the optimal layout for 1, 2, 3, and possibly 4 bridges. I am borrowing a 24 port switch so we should have enough connections for 4 full bridges.

      I might not have enough cable for 24+ cables, so yes, bringing your own network cable is a good idea. I will also provide a wifi connection should we have to spread out a bit, that way we can play without interrupting and clogging up Game Theory's Internet wifi.

      I'll have the game available on USB sticks as well as accessible from the game network when you plug in, so we should be able to distribute the game pretty easily.

      I've loaded and run it on older boxes, so long as they support DX9 you should be ok.

      I've also run it successfully on Linux via WINE, using an Intel graphics card so you shouldn't need to bring a big gaming rig.

      I have 5 laptops preloaded with the game and a machine that will function as the "Base Server" for the first bridge as well as the connection for the other bridges, so we will have a fully operational single bridge even if nobody else brings hardware.
