DD&F8 League?
« Thread started on: Sep 24th, 2007, 9:03pm »

I have a few other games I play on occasion, and one of them is the nascar 2003 season game introduced a few years back. It still has a strong follow-up and there are many sites devoted to leagues for the game. There are people that join the leagues as members, and they meet every so often at certain tracks and race for prizes, bragging rights, or just fun. They also have a points system too. The members can have their own personal cars which are uploaded and can be downloaded by others. you can use your own cars in the multiplayer event too.
I'm thinking it would be fun to have a league like this for DD&F8. I'm sure we could get a few people to join. the hard part would be to get everyone together. The leagues for Nascar racing 2003 season (or NR2k3 for short) have their own servers set up specially for their leagues. I dont have the money or the know how to know what a server is or how to buy one, but im sure the game's multi function is good enough.
We wouldnt have to meet every week, maybe just quarterly. There would be a set of rules to be used also. like the game's cars only (repainting is allowed) on occasion we could have and outlaw class where there is no limit to your car except RPM and maybe 2000 damage total. You can have multiple cars for different events; compacts, fullsize, wagons, or even trucks.
At the end of each season the points are finalized and the winner is awarded a prize (maybe) If this is online playing is done every once in a while and not all the time, we might even be able to round up some kind of sponser (maybe thats a little far fetched) to give anything for a prize. From real derby car parts to cash or even a model car, or something. If money is tight the winner will get their own game car personalized to their exact liking. Or we could take the BMElm forum option and give out a DVD of the winners choice from Blue Media or something.
So what do you think? I want everone's opinion who reads this topic to answer. Please tell me yes or no why you think this is a good idea or why you think this isnt a good idea. Maybe give some opinions or things that should be added. I will host the league info (scoreboards, members cars, news, information) on my website. The last time someone tried to host a game a few months back they rounded up, I think, 8 or so people. I'm sure I could pull a few off these forums and a few off wecrash and maybe pull up around 10 people pretty easily.

So tell me what you think....good idea or bad....and why

me and flash got together on gamespy and tried it. we had no such luck. There might be a problem with my computer. Maybe you should try going against someone else, flash, to see if it works then. hope it gets figured out

I emailed Aux Power a week or so ago and I dont think they are going to answer anytime soon. The DD&F8 league isn't off, but I still need to figure out how to get this game's multiplayer to work.
I'm going to try what littledirt said, and take all the custom tracks off first, maybe that might fix the problem.
is someone available to play on multi sometime? im usually home around 4 and after on the weekdays.

ive got something i want to try. It might fix the problem of why multi wont work with custom tracks. In the events section there is sort of a track ID file (with the track name, music, event type, number of cars, league, ect.) Each track has a 4 letter ID written in caps. I'm thinking if the ones on the add-on tracks have the same ID as the game's tracks, it will cause some kind of problem. I dont think anyone has ever bothered to change those
