New to the NS community?

    I keep hearing about NS on a podcast I listen to, so I figured I would try it out and see if it is as fun as I have heard.

    Like the dude above me, I am from the San Francisco Bay Area.

    I play video games sometimes.

    Hello, Unknown World!
    I knowed Natural Selection from a long time, but just last year I could really play the game online (but I donh't play anymore 'cause of my lag that annoys everyone). So, I joined to forum community to try to help making the NS2 one of the best games of ever (because potential it has, Max and Flayra prove what wonders perseverance can do). I don't like using to much abreviations, writing without captalization or ponctuation and "wrting evrthng shrt lik tat lolz". Since I am from Brazil, sorry me if I write something (or everything) wrong.
    So, I wish everything runs fine here.

    Edit: Ah, and I discovered NS by myself, while surfing through HL Mods.

    My name is Niko and I come from Finland.
    I ran into this Half-Life mod in a Finnish game rewieving site, that reviewed this mod. The only complains were "too complex level design" and "sometimes there's really long matches", and it got 88 points out of 100 (this was version 1.02).
    I like the idea of team-work and the Commander-system, although I'm sure that I'll be better and more use as meatshield than as commander. (okay I've played Dawn of War and Total Anihilation)
    In this month (if I remember correctly) I bougth Half-Life 1 Anthology, and a couple of days later I remembered this mod.
    So I downloaded Natural Selection, but I haven't yet tried it. I think I'll try combat on Tuesday or Wednesday. Hope I'll see ya then!
    And Sorry if I made any spelling mistakes or such. It's 0:20 when I write this.

    Next player then, please!

    Why hello there!
    I've played NS a few times before, when I first got Half Life some few years ago, but haven't really dwelled on the forums (nor the game, heh).
    Known as Deathwind on some very small areas of the internet, from the west coast of America.

    Wow, talk about abit of a blast from the past.

    I almost forgot all about NS untill I was poking through my old HL games and such and was like... I wonder what ever happend to...

    Nice to see that NS2 is still on track.

    Makes me want to reinstall NS and get back into it all again. As to me, well I'm now going on 28 and joining the Army. Probably wont have much time to play when NS2 comes out but I'm sure folk can still expect to see me kicking around here and there. Gotta help represent the Canadian contingient on the servers afterall biggrin-fix.gif

    Who are you and where did you learn about NS2?:

    Hello guys you may call me Gnome, I just signed up and found this place by luck from a video on Youtube.
    I diddent know Natural selection 2 was work´t on before today but I must say that what I have seen so far is very cool.

    I love the game setting and would love to play this game. I have some ideas myself (who dosent, right wink-fix.gif ) that might show up in the suggestion thread later on for anyone interested. Iv carried a game design idea for years, just looking for a time when it would be possible to execute.

    NF2 comes pretty close to my dream game and I might use the NS2 engine to launch my own ideas as it seem to be highly modifiable and already have a lot of the things I like. Time will tell. smile-fix.gif

    Where are you from?:

    I´m from Sweden and are 29 years old. Iv done some code and mod work in the past for mainly the dinosaur engine of DN3D. I see myself as pretty creative kind and innovative person that love to bounce ideas and talk about game design.

    Looking forward to see you all on the forums.

    Name: Jeremy

    From Milwaukee, WI

    Heard of the game: shortly after it was released, actually. I played for a little while, but I got away from online gaming for a while and have just recently started looking at it again. I'm currently playing around with WhichBots in a non-serious kind of way, but I'm thinking I might get back into this game soon.

    Hope to see you all in the game!

    Hey, I'm Oliver (I go by MarshmallowOfHell, [I AM] is my clan tag), and I'm a pretty avid gamer. I play a TON of Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike: Source, Garry's Mod, Day of Defeat: Source, Half Life, Portal, etc. etc. Valve makes most of my favorite games :). And I plan on pre-ordering the Premium NS2 as soon as I have the funds.

    Who are you? ^see above.

    Where are you from? The United States of America.

    How did you learn about Natural Selection? From a friend, and the clan I'm in. Shortly after discovering it, I decided to pre-order NS2 (as soon as I have the funds that is!)

    Hooray! :D

    Oh man... I've been playing Natural Selection for a while, and I think I used to have an older account name (but never posted with it and forgot about it) so I registered this one! (and promptly forgot about it until today... 2 years later), so hello everyone!

    Not sure if anyone remembers who I was, haven't actually been able to play for a while due to computer issues and family issues but, IGN back in the day was "Spacehamster" I believe, nowadays it's "Orphanskitty!!"

    Names Maxwell, heard about NS through google, typing in half life mods way back in the day (still miss babblers) and tried to get a few friends into it and my brother. Brother got motion sickness from playing so... don't think he liked it much.

    I'm from the US east coast ( :\ ) annnd, I have no coding or scripting ability at all though I wish I did know even the basics. However, I'm pretty good at finding glitches and bugs in games as... I tend to do the dumb things that normal people don't do, so I usually get stuck on something strange like a lamp post in games (or the dog in Fable 2 ... )

    So, pleased to meet all of you officially, though how much I actually come onto forums will be another question.

    Hey there! I'm actually an old-timer, but I haven't played in years --- so I might as well be new anyway. In preparation for NS 2, I'll be sharpening my fade skills in order to become "that annoying fade" once again. :)

    The name's also Spuddy on Steam. Catch (or swipe) you all later!

    Hi there! I'm a fat, little boy, liking cheese... Naah... Don't worry... I'm not fat... Cheese ain't that unhealthy... Anyway, my name is Philip (I'd prefer if you call me Phill). I heard about Natural Selection 2 on moddb, and since I wanna play all the awesome games which ain't released yet, I want to play whatever game reminds of most: Natural Selection. I don't own Half Life, but I intend to buy it very soon, so I have a little question... Does this mod also run on the famous Sourse engine? (Can I run the mod over Half Life: Source as well as Half Life?). Source makes everything better, so I'd rather buy that, but if NS doesn't work on that, I wont even give it a second thought. By the way, I live in Denmark and I speak danish... Amazing... I BE THY LORD, MASTER, RULER, KING, EMPEORER(wtf), UBARAHSUMDOOD OF CHEEEEEEESE! Bow before me or I breathe on you!!

    Mu name's Nick, I'm from Fresno, CA. I saw NS in the mods section on Steam, so I figured I would give it a shot, It sounds cool, and at this point, it's probably really good.

  • SekerSeker Members Join Date: 2007-03-06 Member: 60259Posts: 369
    There are plenty of servers (about ~100).

    Are you sure you downloaded the latest natural selection (3.2 ?) and steam ?

    Yeah, I got the problem now, I think it's because I'm reusing a CD-KEY because my computer got a virus before D:
    Does that mean I have to buy it again? and I also I can't click on the Hazard Course on any custom game and I can't click on new game either!

    Yeah but it doesn't detect steam

    Start Steam. Log In. There's an option to Register Game. Use it and enter your CD key for HL1.

    It's not HL detecting Steam, it's registering HL with Steam so that Steam will download it.

    Hi. I'm Tim. Pleased to meet'cha, eh!

    "Where are you from?"
    I'm Canadian, born and raised. Southern Ontario to be a little more specific, but I won't get any more than that.

    "How did you learn about Natural Selection?"
    What is this, an interrogation?


    Nah, just kidding. It kept popping up as one of my Steam friends kept opening it, so I figured I might as well check it out. And after playing a few rounds - and having my ass handed to me in the process - I decided I might come to the community and say hi, maybe get a few pointers while I'm at it.

    Hey all, I'm Lowe!

    I used to play the original Natural Selection back in the day with a clan called Prodigal Gamers (-pGc- tag).

    Anyway, I thought Natural Selection 1 was (IS) the best mod ever made for any game and I've been really excited to get my hands on its sequel. I even bought Zen of Soduku to help fund the cause :) You'll definitely be seeing me in black marine armor come Monday, and I can't wait to help out in any way I can to make NS2 even better than the first.

    Can't wait to play with you all!
