Where are good places to post this on the internet? Facebook, Reddit?

It's on reddit already.

The hard part is getting new players to play it. Modern games hold their hand and adjust the difficulty on the fly. There is no incentive to improve or gain skills. They play a game like UT or Quake and get owned initially, and never try to get better, and go back to their Hello Kitty Island Adventures.

Where on reddit? I don't see it anywhere. Does anyone know who mods /r/unrealtournament? They should have pinned posts about how to play each game.

ut99 is still quite popular. I think we're the weirdos.

Hello,
A couple days ago I went to join and could not connect. I had Omni and Ceons saved in my favorites, both did not connect. I tried everything. I tried my other computer and same thing. My internet is fine, the only other common factor is both games go through Steam. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no luck.

So I found this thread and I'm using Snarf's instructions below to load the game directly, however, the site for getting the GUID does not generate the key when I click the "generate" button. Is there another way to get the key. I did successfully install the game (without patches) and is asks for the key when I start.

Can anyone help? I'm starting to get withdrawal systems.

Thanks, Eb
