    Post LAN XXX Packing List & Instructions Thread

    LAN XXX - Packing List & Instructions Thread

    This thread is to provide you with a packing list so that you remember to bring everything you should bring to the LAN along with a guide as to how to ensure your steam is up to date and that you have the relevant patches / map packs etc.

    Please make sure you have all the map packs and such installed from the Workshop the two below are very important.!!!!!

    CS:GO Workshop Page
    L4D2 Workshop Page

    IMPORTANT:
    Do this ON Tuesday NIGHT ABOUT 10.00 PM. IF YOU DO THIS FRIDAY MORNING YOU MIGHT PICK UP A STEAM UPDATE THAT NONE OF THE REST OF US OR THE LAN SERVER WILL HAVE. THEN YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONNECT TO THE LAN GAME!!!!

    Thursday 10.00pm
    1. Connect to the Internet
    2. Start Steam
    3. **CRUCIAL** If you DO have the 'do not save account details on this computer' checked then enter your password and UNCHECK THE BOX. If you don't you'll loose your password details from the login screen and will not be able to play CS at the LAN **CRUCIAL**
    4. Log onto Steam
    5. Click 'Exit' on the Steam menu and quit Steam
    6. Disconnect from the Internet
    7. Start Steam and when the dialog box appears click 'offline mode'
    8. Make sure Steam starts and you can fire up CS
    9. Exit Steam again
    10. Try restarting Steam again.
    11. Run a complete Anti-virus scan.
    12. Go to bed
    13. Wake up
    14. Go to the LAN
    15. Buy Ninja and Brother Tobious a Pint or two


    In a nutshell just make sure you can connect to Steam without being asked for your password. If you are asked to type in your password you're not going to be able to play at the LAN


    Hardware:
    PC - Virus & Trojan Free!
    Monitor & VGA/DVI cable and only 1
    Keyboard with cable
    Mouse with cable
    Mouse Mats
    Power cables for PC, monitor etc
    Panel plug (so that you can plug all of your electrics into the one panel).
    Extension cable (just in case you end up 10m away from the nearest plug.
    Joystick/Steering wheel
    Lots of spare HDD space
    Headphones (no, you cannot bring your speakers )

    Software:
    Driver software for any hardware that you bring (in case you need to reinstall).
    OS software for those hard luck system crashes followed by format c:
    Games software

    Networking:
    Your PC must have a working NIC (network card)
    Ethernet cable - preferably as long as you can get (10m would be great) and Cat6 IS THE NEW STANDARD PLEASE

    Miscellaneous:

    Duct tape - to keep those trailing cables from being tripped on.
    Hardware spares (if you have any then bring them just in case somebody else needs to swap out a CPU or HDD etc).
    There is a licensed bar 10 yards from the gaming room.
    There is a high street with shops, cash points etc 20 yards from the gaming room.

    Please feel free to ask if there's anything you're not sure about !!



    Please make sure that all the games we are playing are up to date and you are familiar with too.
