I will get it this weekend, we can always make new character ;)

blindrhythm we still have to play Wolfy! Sorry dude I've been kinda distracted these past weeks haha
Yep! I've got two characters already for that reason and plan to make a third.

And I'm totally ready for some Wolfy! I honestly thought the both of us were in a weird stand off where we were waiting for the other to say something. :LOL:

Haha dont worry! It was a joke I guess it didnt land :)
That's a relief and was my hope! You've been a great friend to me on this forum and someone I'm still looking forward to taking down some Nazis with. :)

I knew Schitt's Creek was a comedy, but not much outside of that and looking up that gif on giphy just returns a bunch under the label, "You should know" which threw me off. Totally my bad! :LOL:

Hey everyone! I have updated the community event section in the OP to now show the game that's going to be played and a countdown timer for when it starts.

That doesn't mean that folks can't sign up anymore. If you're still interested in taking part in the event you're welcome to sign up whenever you get the chance until the event starts! :)

And actually.. I should probably put the sign up sheet in the OP too. Off to do that now!

Reminder for everyone taking part in the community event to make sure you have Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed installed, thankfully it's a fairly small download so even if you can't get it going until tomorrow there's still plenty of time. :)

Also EdwardTivrusky and gabbo the three of us are going to have to add one another on Steam sometime before the event. It's looking like I'm probably going to be the host so that will help out a ton so there's no last minute scrambling to get friends added.

Pretty excited to get this going and I can't wait to see you all on the track! It's going to be a lot of fun! :blobcheer:

Despite not being the best day for me, in terms of time, and despite not playing Transformed for years (I don't even remember the controls :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:), I'll try to play at least a few matches with you guys.
I don't know if I'll arrive home in time for the start, hopefully I will.

blindrhythm , what do I need to do when the time comes?
I don't really use discord, and I don't remember how MP works in Transformed (do I have to search for a room, do I have to send you an invite to play, ...)?

thanks ;)

You can use discord without a mic to listen otherwise it is fine without.
For the game itself you're just going to need to be invited to the session that is being hosted. Unless your are the host then you have to invite everybody.

It may take awhile to get started as you have to make sure that everybody is in or if too many people split your groups and figure that stuff out.

All you'll need to do is send me a message on Steam when you're ready to go! :highfiveblob:

Like MonthOLDpickle said though, you're more than welcome to hang out in the Discord and chat in one of the text channels or even listen to the voice channel if folks are using one. But it's not required in the slightest. I never want anyone to feel that they have to join the Discord for one of these events. Folks should feel like joining when they're up for it, not because they felt pressured.

And yep, it's looking like I will be the one hosting! So fingers crossed that it goes as smoothly as possible! 🤞

Meta Co-Op #01 was a thing. And it was a thing... of beauty.

We started a little roughly with the game lobby system, but everyone was patient enough to weather the storm and wait for things to settle. And then it was great all the way, with the surprise appearance of RionaaM and Arsene , very appreciated evidently.
What more could we hope for ? It was a good time and this little proof of concept showed that it can work.
Big thanks to blindrhythm for all his work for our little community

I mentioned it on Discord and I want to take the time to say it here as well. You all have been so amazing! This was a team effort getting this going and I appreciate it so much. Your kindness is what kept me going through all of the doubts that crept into my mind. You've all been really great friends. Thank you. :cat-heart-blob:

Especially after the minor snags we hit at the start tonight. I'm just so thankful I had an older PC that I could switch to and that it managed to not only keep up, but also still host everyone.

I also shared my idea for events going forward that will hopefully make things a little smoother. I'm going to create another Google Sheet that everyone is free to edit that will be used during the first week of a month for game submissions for a poll. I'll try to set it up so even if folks don't have a submission in mind they can vote for one already on the sheet.

Week two is when we'll try to figure out who will be joining and what days and times work best for them. The remaining two weeks will be picking a date and holding the event. I look forward to doing a lot more of these with you all! It has been so much fun! :highfiveblob:

I share the general feeling, it was awesome! Even the testing phase was hilarious :D

Actually, I think that for the next events a testing phase will be needed again, it can be the same day (like yesterday) or some days in advance.

Now that many of us have played together I encourage everybody who wants to play coop or competitive on a daily basis (sort of) to ask here or in Discord for it. It would be great to play SFV, Overwatch or Shadow Warrior 2 (these are examples) with the Meta crew ;)

Yeah, great fun even the sorely needed testing phase and i agree that if possible it would be wise to schedule in a test run or two on a new game before getting the rest of the mob involved. It'll help us get a few people up to speed on how the game does multiplayer so we have a fighting chance on the actual night. Also have a warm-up session or two on the night to get everyone settled and comfortable with how the game works, sort out headsets and chat etc.

Good idea and I agree, we should probably set up a day (or possibly 2) before the next event to test how invites work, what options we have in multiplayer, and other stuff like that. Even if the game happens to be one most of us know well it still wouldn't hurt. :)

Oh btw, I'm buying, or not buying, or maybe buying, send halp, a Switch. That got me thinking that we also could share our friend codes or whatever stone age method Nintendo currently use to play together.
I just hope it doesn't involves flint. Not sure where to get some.

That's a great idea! I even have a couple of levels in Mario Maker 2 if anyone wants to try them :p

What do you want to do, post the friend codes directly here?

I don't know, the logical answer would be to ask blindrhythm to add a section for that in the spreadsheet.
But nobody fill the spreadsheet ! :face-with-cold-sweat:

Sure thing! I added a section for friend codes to the friend profiles list. :thumbsupblob:

Haha! You're right it has been a while since I added anyone to the list. I think the Discord server took the wind out of its sails a bit, but it can still be an extremely useful source of info for folks that are looking for friends to play with on Steam or wherever else.

So if anyone would like to have their info added just use a hidden tag in a post with the info you want on there or you can always send me a PM with all of that too. And if you need an example of what is on the list it's under the Friend profiles banner in the OP. :smiling-face-with-smiling-eyes:

One week to go until game submissions for the next event starts! :blobcheer:

I'll be adding the link to the Google Sheet both in the OP and in a post I make when it officially opens up. So you've got plenty of time to come up with some games you all would like to see on a poll. And remember, even if you don't have any you can think of you're still welcome to vote on games currently on the sheet.

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with, it's pretty exciting! :smiling-face-with-smiling-eyes:

Friday the 13th: The Game is extremely cheap at Humble, especially if you are a monthly subscriber:

Just wondering: would anyone like to give it a go at playing some matches one of these days?
I'm yet to play a single multiplayer match. :giggle:

You know what ? I wanted to suggest the game a few days ago because I remembered your situation. Really.
Kinda pissed at the fact I completely forgot :confused-face:

No need to be pissed. :D
It's no big deal.

It's just that I backed the game on Kickstarter, and never got to experience most of the content. :grinning-face-with-smiling-eyes:
The game has bots, but in that mode you only control Jason, so I'm yet to play as one of the survivors.

But really, there's no hurry.
Since it's on sale, I just remembered to mention it. :)

For only $4 I get to chase some teens around as Jason Voorhees? It usually costs me so much more and then there's the whole waiting till Friday the 13th thing.. :p

With all of you folks to play with I can see it being a great time and with it being so cheap it's hard to say no. Even if we don't end up playing it in an event someday I would still love to get some matches going occasionally.

Radio silence from me is because right now I have exactly 30 euros to finish the month, I can't commit at this moment unfortunately.
I also hate the serial killers mythos and don't really want to play one. But hey it's 3 bucks and it will please Funktion. The more serious matter is waiting to see how much of the 30 euros I can spare.

Hey! Wanted to pop in to let everyone know that some folks are going to be getting together tomorrow around 22;30 GMT for some races in Sonic Transformed again. No Google Sheet checkboxes this time since it's not an actual event, just a spur of the moment thing that all are welcome to join whether you were able to make it for the event last time or not.

We would love to have you show up and hit the track with us if you can! :cat-heart-blob:

blindrhythm Sorry, just to be sure: do you mean in about 22 hours and 15 minutes?

I ask because there are some countries that use GMT that currently are in Summer time (one hour difference), which is the case of Portugal, which can get confusing, so I'm just making sure we're "scheduled" for around 22h and 15 minutes from now. :)

Forgot to include this. Sorry about that. :p
No, I'm the one that's sorry for the (obvious?) question, but since in Europe, in most countries we usually have have GMT and GMT+1, but currently, during summer, in some countries (like mine) we also have Daylight saving time, it can get confusing. :giggle:
