Right, so the schools just spent around 50k kitting out a new room, HDMI projectors/smart board/ tables/ chairs/ Gigabit switches etc/around 25k was spent on 32 New Dell XPS 420's; Q6600 processors and a ATI 2600Xt,2gig ram etc. the boss is hoping to set it up as a gaming club, anybody got any ideas for games baring in mind age rating and the fact computer spec wont matter, money for software is also not a problem.
Ive already looked at a few other threads mentioning quake and some older games, But with the Spec of the machines, a few more recent games might help get the moneys worth out of these computers.
At the moment the only game installed is Star Wars Battfront 2 as its a PG title.
Will be grateful for any help, thanks. :)
looks like a pretty decent lan game gonna give it a download now any other idea's?
World of Padman is free and uses the Quake III Engine.
What sort of games are you looking for:
racing games? Fifa, PES, Warcraft III, Portal
mmo's are out of the question seing as they will only be able to see the Network as far as the Lan, i guess any game, that isnt too difficult to pickup and will entertain some teens for 45 mins. A racing game that could be used over the lan for Tornements Etc sounds pretty good.
Toca Race Driver 3,
Battlefield 1942 any of them,
Star Wars Jedi knight academy,
Warcraft 2 & 3,
Command and Conquer Series,
Crysis either of them,
Call of Duty 3 upwards,
Medal Of Honour any of them,
Lego Star Wars
Get a Source license. They do a "lan" license. You'll have to had a word with the LEA about opening ports (i guess)
thanks, thats plenty to get started with, :)
So how do I come work at your school then? :)
oo im guessing u'll change ure mind when u arrive :)
Our network is a rather nasty mess :)
but we could open the gates of hell and let you in if you wish :P
We actually have a games club running at the momment and there a few of the games that we are running on ours they have seemed to the favourites.:cool:
Get em learning something: freecol.org :)

Strange to here you network is in a mess, when you have just spent £50k on one room.
