password: imwiththeband
The server itself will be running before/after the event so feel free to use it. Do note that it will be restarted just before the event time to restart the campaign and may kick you in the process. Don't be scared to rejoin.

How to Join
Make sure you meet all the Requirements and have prepared for any Known Issues before starting UT.
The server does not broadcast so you will not find in the server browser. You may join one of two ways:
1. In the console type "open xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" where X = the ip of the server.
2. On the Favorites tab of the server browser you can Right-click to add and a New Favorite. Enter the Server name and ip and it will be saved to your Favorites tab. Double-click to join.
* In both cases you will be asked for the password the first time you join the server.

Requirements
* Unreal Tournament version GOTY/436 (patch436)
* Unreal Tournament Bonus Packs 1-4 (UTBP1 | UTBP2 | UTBP3 | UTBP4) I am unsure if GOTY/Steam includes these.

Known Issues
The server is running a beta version of CoopSuite with new changes to the spawning system. It is possible that it may be completely broken. RTNPUEv1.1 is not on redirect. If you wish to join you will need to manually install.

I don't know that map, i will be so freaking lost, so the answer it's a "No" ATM.

It would be funny if i play there, since i'm dumb, but still "No".

Server is running CoopBeacon so it might help a little. While it doesn't go so far as to creating a path to follow, it does show where players are to give you a hint.

Damn, wish I could join but for logistical reasons beyond my power I won't be able to participate.

I do hope there'll be more folks joining in, I might still be able to follow the stream in part at least! Have fun :)

Friday and Saturday evenings could work out. I'll mark it and if I have the time and energy, I might pop in for a bit.

O U :o

Thanks everyone for joining. It's been a long time since I've played coop (7Bullets release). While a lot of it came back to me it seems there were some server issues. I've sorted out the most likely problem so it should be good to go. I think it took about 3.5 hours for a single run. Not bad for a community campaign with players that (mostly) remember where to go. Those respawns are killer though.

I'm thinking about moving a couple hours earlier for Saturday. When I picked 7pm I wasn't thinking how late it would be for GMT0. I've got some admin scripts to rewrite so I'll probably show up earlier to make sure my client is sorted out also.

Deja Vu only ever had nominal coop support. To work better it would need a patch with shortcut routes like the lift to the Stinger that I mentioned while we were playing the first map. In fact I think that even occurred to me when I was making the map but I never got round to it.

It's one if those things I mentioned in the best/worst Unreal map thread. The landscape has changed. Back then it was one of those things you just accepted simply because that's how it always was. Even though I think you could get creative with the tech that shipped with the game to fix this, it wasn't really seen as a problem. Just like how tweaking the graphics on level 3 led to visual improvements, design practices improved as well.

Friday, Saturday. Thinking about adjusting times for one of the days. Also considering running the Jones saga this week but there's a few mutators I want to write specifically for that to autopilot a few things like placing accumulated weapons at spawns (as 7B already does) and loading packs sequentially. I originally planned to alternate between the two (DejaVu, Jones) each week but I may instead run DV again this week and Jones the following two.

Yay! It was a nice change of pace from all the Batshit Insane games I have been playing
lately.
