We need some kind of meeting straight voice to voice over skype or ventrilo/teamspeak something like that too shoot ideas at each other and get stuff done, i hate when you post and then i takes ages over forums to get stuff done, so if anyone wants to tell me, and ill try and get a time over this wekkend that accomidates most people that i can.

i can do vent / skype / msn. whatever we need to get this done, i will do :D i can't wait to start coding this. i think once this is released, hbh will draw a lot more actually good hackers that know what they are doing to see if they can actually beat it. of course the people that are just learning to hack and what not wont get very far, they might get at least to a certain point and then might go off and do a side job on the game or wait till they learn some more and come back to the game. i suggest we use skype tho simply because we would have to set up a vent server unless someone else already has one that we can use.

How about TeamSpeak, don't HBH have it's own TS server?

Erm IRC would be easiest n fastest method of communication. Msn would work too I guess.

we'll use IRC because over a voip would get frustrating with people interupting and everyone trying to get their say etc, IRC is easier to read several peoples ideas at once.

ok so can we go ahead and set a date for this? i am sure we are goin to have more than just one meeting but we need to have at least one before we start really getting involved, just to make sure everyone is on the same page.

well, how about an unofficial teamspeak session or two and an official IRC session following, the IRC would have to include as many people from the dev team as possible but the teamspeak is less chilled and less strict??

sometime early november would be a good time for me.

i'll organise and join in with a IRC meeting. if the rest of you developers want to talk and have idea sesions over teamspeak then go for it!

Well, either Monday 30th or wednesday/thursady but it would be better monday so that we can have more sessions over break. and cheese are you going to make a teamspeak server from hbh, or shall i just host one from a home pc or skype conference call??

i wont be setting up the teamspeak, so you'll have to sort that yourself. sorry.

i will get us dedicated irc channel time though so only game dev's can talk.

I'd prefer teamspeak over skype, because I don't have skype. I'll start downloading Teamspeak now :)

It would have to be at a time everyone's ok with, because if it's a week day I can only do the afternoon because of school, and I'm pretty sure it's the same for some other people. Also, what time zone is everyone in? Because it would have to be a reasonable time for each timezone, and, say if the majority is in GMT, as I know a couple of us are, then it would probably have to be done in GMT time (im guessing it'd be maybe in the afternoon?)

Anyway, doing it realtime is a good idea, instead of having to wait and check the forums :)

I would prefer something which doesn't require speakers or mikes, I have neither

to answer a bunch of questions

i think there should be more than one, and try to accomidate as many peoples as possible, but its not likely we can do it for all

my parents think im weird when i listen to ign podcasts cause they think there a bunch of men in my computer room/toliet (you have to look at it http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h286/tancurrom/1337/workstation.jpg)and i can only start to imagine what they thinks going on

ok mozzer. dude you must have earphones or something, and then get your parents to buy a eyetoy, make them think its there idea, then you get webcam + mic :)

AbSoRb, you say you dony want skype cause you dont want to download it so teamspeak which your off to download, what?

skype is good because you are more likely to be logged on and others can talk about stuff when your on not just the meeting times

There's no way I will be allowed to stay up 'til 11 PM to listen to people talking. How about a two day set of posting in the forum which will act as a meeting. Then poeple from all timezones will have a chance to post, get a response and repost


Mr_Cheese's Avatar

good idea.

ok we'll do them both at the same time. 11th - 12th = forums + 11th @ 11pm GMT = skype
