I just realized, Ive been browsing /arch/ for a bit now, and i figured why not? I'll make a thread to promote the steam group im a part of.

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/mlpfim

Welcome to the herd fellow ponies!~

This is the steam group of your dreams. Its been around since November. Recently, if you remember, we hit 1000 members, and I did a web show. For six hours me and anywhere between 30 and 60 people sat around a computer, having so much fun, making cupcakes, telling stories, having fun. This is just a part of what the group is.

Join the community if you have steam. Ive been with the group for coming up on... i think somewhere around 3 months or so (i joined the day i found ponies :P) and i have personally watched it grow from a small community of around 250 members, to now coming up on 1400 members!

I have seen the daily chat room go from 2-4 ponies at any given time, to now there's usually 20-25 in the chat at ALL times! I have met so many amazing ponies through this group, and now i want to share the magic of friendship with you.

So please, if you have a bit of time, come stop by, say hi! i am positive you will meet many new friends here.

Because of the new game system random anon get in the servers. Some stay and sometimes are parasprites.

I kinda like going in the servers around 4am my time. Less parasprites in it compared to the day. Plus, the Coloured Pylons TF2 server keeps me at bay since the people there are pretty chill compared to the ones i met at Legion of Ponies.
>> No. 2509683
I frequent the password protected Legion server. It makes it less stressful and annoying but a lot of the time it also gets empty and lonely :c

So i heard you can reserve a spot in TF2 servers on Legion of Ponies. Lol wut, i think the Legion of Ponies server in general is dying to me.

Maybe i should go Citizen mode and fuck around until i get kicked.

Seriously, dumbest idea ever.

it always goes down. im just holding on till lethaldrive shows up so i can switch to that.

>> No. 2509690
So guys, would you teach me exactly how can you micspam on the TF2 servers? I too want to spread catchy pony goodness but I couldn't get HLDJ working no matter how many times I've tried.

Is it the old put-mic-close-to-speakers method? I doubt it, because I've witnessed some guys playing various short sound effects repeatedly, and that's really hard to pull off using only an mp3 player.

doesn't seem to work. I did everything that's written down in the tutorial but when I start to play my music it seems it somehow still can't be heard server-side, only I can hear it.
>> No. 2509693
>>2509692
some servers also don't allow micspam or have the voice_loopback command disabled...
>> No. 2509694
>>2509693
With that method, disabling micspam is impossible.
With the old codec, there was an "allow voice from file" command that HLDJ used. This could be disabled, but the new method doesn't use that.
If only he can hear the music, he might not have set up Virtual Audio Cable correctly. voice_loopback lets you hear what you broadcast to the server.
>> No. 2509695
>>2509694
that is true...he should make sure he has Virtual Audio Cable correctly set up.
>> No. 2509696

This isn't entirely correct.

Donators get a special "reserved slot" function. What this means is that they have access to the two "extra" slots on the server that are not publicly available.

For example, if the server is full (24/24), a donator can connect with a reserved slot and make the population 25/24. There is no kicking players to make room, there is no denying open space to pubs, everypony plays nice.
>> No. 2509697
>>2509696
>there is no denying open space to pubs

What about in the situation that there are 24 people already on the server, at least 2 of which are donators? If a pubby then tries to join, is one of the donators pushed into the 25th slot, or can the pubby just not join? In the case of the latter, it kinda-sorta-maybe IS denying open space to pubs.
>> No. 2509698
>>2509697

It doesn't push donators to the slots if they've occupied a normal slot, so you kind of have a point, but by then it's just a typical server full issue and that's not the fault of the donator. The point is that it will not kick anypony already in to make room for donators.

They're not being denied by donators any more than they're being denied by Dr. Joe Herpaderp the random internet pubber who got there before them.
>> No. 2509699
>>2509698
On the contrary, if there are 24 people on, and the server holds 26, they are being locked out by people who aren't even on the server. Not being able to play because somepony else MIGHT want to play later is pretty unfair.
>> No. 2509700
>>2509699

24 is a standard 12 v. 12 match. The 2 slots are by all definitions extra. This is not lockout.

I'll join, but since I literally just downloaded Steam, I'm pretty much limited to Spiral Knights and TF2 until I decide to buy something I want.

It'd be fun to play with some decent people on a server instead of random pubs, but being new, and from what I've gathered from this thread, the pony servers seem pretty shitty to me.

C'est la vie.

Will join tonight when I get off work. Just recently started TF2 (because of ponies) and I've been playing on this one brony server from UK. My Litte Mercenaries or something. Anyway I rly like it and my ping there is only 120 or so which is pretty awesome considering I have to use this crappy mobile internet stick or w/e its called. Will get broadband in 20days but untill then I have to suffer :(

Now that I have a computer with half-decent specs, I've got Steam, Portal (2), and TF2. Joined the group a while ago. Curious to see if there are TF2 servers for us...?

You have no idea. You can sometimes wait for half an hour for a slot in the main pony servers.
