The graphics were also top notch back in 1998

I actually have this game. If I thought the tangos in RvS quickdrawed, they didn't have a thing on this game. Dirol

It was like Ghost Recon, but without the AT missiles. Wink

Yeah, they were even worse laser sharp shots, but it was easy to just sneak around and pop'em in the elbow with a 3rd burst lol.

Hmm, I wonder where my disk is...

I not only have R6, and plan to install it on my "new" DOS/98se computer but, even better, I have the maps as a Rogue Spear mod. Will be doing that too as I have found some of my old RSp game buds.

With all it's faults, R6 was still awesome for it's time. Tangos were faster, but then so were SpecOps on switching weapons.

Now as soon as Spidey does the R6 map pack for Ravenshield..... Twisted

Ok, see now that map pack, which I had no idea was in the works, will be awesome, I learnt to play TacOps with R6 and Rogue Spear, with many LAN games during high school on PC's me and my friends built.

Apologies for the digging up of this old thread, I am new here as of today and wanted to post on something relevant :).

Thank you DUKE, do you also play Raven Shield or are you just a SWAT 4 man?

Was just wondering, where can I find the Ventrilo details or Teamspeak 2/3 server?

I mostly use Ventrilo, used to it and love it, but I know some people prefer TS2/3 and I would be more than happy to download if it meant more tactics in-game.

Regards,
AM.

You can download them at the teamspeak site....google it.
When (and if) the time comes for you to use the SAS TS servers.....you will be told how to connect and authorized. You need to play and show SAS that you are an appropriate candidate for Teamspeak. Read the info on this website and good luck.

When the servers get populated again.

Hardly anyone plays on the SWAT servers anymore Blush

Umm, wow, I am glad I didn't see your post earlier, because Cougar, that response was downright rude. I asked a simple question, you turned around and told me I am not good enough to talk to you. So that you know, I can't play on your server, because the IP address for your clan's RVS server is incorrect or not up to date.

If you're going to be rude to someone for asking a simple question, direct it to someone else, because I don't appreciate it. You might also want to re-read, I wasn't asking for a link to the program, I was actually asking for the server details, which is all good anyway as I am not good enough according to you.

To anyone else, that may wish to listen to someone who actually wishes to try and play with you all, as stated, the server IP address on the main page is out of date for the Raven Shield server. Anyone here who plays Raven Shield currently will know that direct IP's are our only means of connection to servers as of 3 or 4 days ago.

AussieMerc.

Hiyos, welcome to the forum. Smile

I don't think Cougar was being rude. At the very least he wasn't being rude intentionally. Though knowing Cougar with his quirky sense of humour, he'll probably reply back now and tell me he was. Biggrin Nah seriously, I don't think he was and if he says that he was; he wasn't.

Cougar wasn't saying that you weren't good enough. What he was saying was that you need to show the SAS folks that you're the style of player they want to have on their comms because they don't know what style of player you actually are yet. Put it this way, access to TS and the uber cool private Training Ground (that should be incentive Lol comes if you play on their server in a mature cooperative manner long enough to be come their friend. It's their policy and we can't do much about it but abide by it and be grateful when they do finally decide to trust you enough to give you access. You may be already be good enough, or you may not be, SAS have no way of actually knowing until they see you play - Good things come to those who wait and all that.

That's fair enough, was just that I was trying to say that I couldn't play with them due to the IP being out of date, so telling me I need to play with the SAS team when I quite literally can't, seemed strange.

I can understand it all being a private thing, not for just any old player etc, but I guess I must have read too much into it when he said when the SAS guys deemed it necessary to speak to me, they'd do so.

Also, to whoever takes care of the donations, threw 10USD to your donation page, sound like a decent bunch and from the tactics and training documents available I'd like to actually get on RVS and game when the server's are operational or online.

PS. Thanks Malty, are you the same one I was playing with over on the SS Adv server earlier on today?

AussieMerc.

Ahh now I think I see where you mix up was. Smile Cougar was only referring to getting on SAS TS (Teamspeak) servers, he said nothing about playing with SAS. Anyone is free to do that as long as they don't break server rules.

You don't have SWAT4TSS, do you?

Negative, I used to own both SWAT4 and TSS but ended up selling it as I found the MP side much too glitchy when playing overseas players. Not sure if it's a net-code problem or what-have-you but I sold it quite some time ago now.

Being the OP and a rather old fashioned man for netiquette on top of it, might I request some moderator move the whole AussieMerc / Cougar / etc related discussion over to it's own thread with ye ol'topic splitter? Wink

We're back on topic Spidey01, next time I won't post here (even if my first post was on topic about RVS and R6), let you have your thread to yourself.

Actually, Spidey, since the link in the initial post leads to nothing but a page full of videos, it is impossible to know what the original post was about. I'm going on the basis of the following discussion appeared to be about R6.

Perhaps you would like to fix the link or put something in your original post to let us all know what the topic we are not following actually IS if we upset you that much. Sorry, if I contributed to this but there is no information in your first post to indicate we were not on topic with R6. Check it ou. Frankly, I couldn't care less where the discussion goes if someone wants to move it, but it's my grandmother who was the psychic, lol.

Actually Cougar that appears to be a bug in the forum software or some server upgrade, I would suggest copy/pasting the whole link into an web browsers address bar, and reporting it to the Webmaster ;). I can't correct it.

and if it wasn't obvious the topic was the original Rainbow Six.

I've had enough time as a moderator on enough different forums with enough different policies, that I like to keep things a little tidy ;).
