Anyone want to race online FlatOut?

I'd like to, but I don't ever find anyone online with or without mods.
Ex started this thread Tuesday and I suggested we do some Flatout 1 online this Saturday using the FOv3 mod and the patch file we were using last year. Give Ex thread a read for the details. And if got questions, post them at FOJ thread or here.

To sum things up, we are hosting Flatout 1 with the FOv3 mod, Saturday at 12 noon pacific, 3:00pm eastern, 8:00pm London time. Using Tunngle> Flatout network to go online with Flatout 1 LAN option.

Here thread on setting up FOv3 mod and the patch we will use. If you do not have a FOv3 mod folder already, please set one up. Don't mix the FOv3 mod with the FOv2Plus mod. Both mods need there own Flatout 1 folder.

Rusty going to host FOv3 mod and FO 2 mod now

And here some posts about setting up Tunngle:

I've tried installing FOv3 before but it wouldn't work. I probably did something wrong as I'm not very good at this kind of stuff. And I have no idea how or where to use tunngle lol

Ya you guys got a bum deal with GOG version of Flatout 1 being unpack. Beg the question, why is GOG version unpack, instead of using bfs files like Steam version?

streaming now ;)
Hi err, like look you are using the software Codematers is using to do their LIVE stream for GRID 2, Twitch.

So you can have a full house online and still live stream the action to other people online through Twitch? Does this cause any lag in FO1 while you are racing and streaming?
 

err

no lag, though it caused some network problems when I tweaked settings too high. Only thing is that twitch seemed to be focusing on US market, viewers from europe might have latency issues. Twitch says that they have European mirrors, but right now they still point to US.
