I want to put a clan together that will play Desert Combat along with regular BF1942. Unfortunatley a server to rent is pretty expensive and without dedicated people to play on it someone always gets stuck with the bulk of the bill. I am 33 years old with kids and can definately play at least once a week. With the weather getting nice again I will not be available on weekends except for Sunday nights when I get home. What I want to do is this: get at least 12 people who are willing to contribute to the server on a monthly basis. This will give control for those 12 members to our server. I would like to make it a public server which is more expensive but will allow others to play on it if we choose so. We can password protect it for when we plan scrimmages or for other occasions. The size of the server I am looking at is a 24 max player server. It costs $85 a month which would be divided between the 12 clan members. The 24 max players is for when we would have scimmages against another clan or if we wanted to open it up to regular players on certain nights. The easiest way for 12 different people to pay for the server is to set up a PayPal account so everyone can just donate that way. I will also check into being able to put voice software on the server so we wouldn't have to worry about someone hosting it on their own machine. I am located on the East Coast (USA) so please take that into consideration when you reply to this message.
The link for the server site where I found the cheapest prices is here:
"We currently offer game servers for Half-Life, Jedi Knight II, Quake III Arena, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Soldier of Fortune II, and Unreal Tournament 2003."
Unless im missing something, they dont host BF yet.
I sent them an e-mail and they said that by May 1st they will have BF1942 available.
Nevermind, I found a clan.
Too much work the other way putting one together myself.
