    Agreed. Also, I finally finished Stetchkov after all these years. Turns out the last mission isn't nearly as hairy as you'd expect. ~16 unarmoured, unmasked suspects, with no bombs/timer, very few civilians, and only one or two difficult areas. Compared to the final mission of the base game, or the ones with bombs in them, it's actually pretty breezy.

    The best solution to unarmoured targets is the stinger grenades. Drop the grenade, charge in and start screaming and shouting.

    I see you have been taking my 'middle management for small businesses' course, have you been using the subliminal audio tapes?

    I NEVER had any good luck with the Stingers, even vs unarmoured targets. They just always seemed to miss the targets and hit the furniture a lot. On those occasions when they did hit the targets, they also hit me :/.

    Although, those unarmoured targets you get with visors occasionally, they're prime targets for the stingers, since the flashes aren't an option.

    I have an important work-related meeting on Tuesday, so i may be tired, but I'll be there :). I hope I won't be too tired to play (anyway, this week, Tuesday might actually be the best day for me to do this).

    Don't stand on me for this. Just pick a time - it's just as good (perhaps better) with a 3/4 member team.

    Shall we take this into our own hands then and say those who are willing and able to play gather in a temporary channel on mumble tomorrow (Tuesday 13 August) at 7.30?

    We will then need someone who knows how to host the game. Anyone know how to do that? Is it intuitive if I just click the 'host' button? I just don't have any experience with using Game Ranger.

    I will be online at 19.30 BST tonight. Shouldn't be too hard to set up hosting, I'm sure we'll figure it out. :)

    Last night was great, we did really well I must say! Cleared the research lab on the first try and made it through some other hard maps, such as the subwaystation and Tarrone again. :)

    I think we sort of agreed to try to play again next tuesday. Looking forward to it.

    I got my copy in the mail (imagine that!) today. All installed and ready to go. Possibly. Is there anything one should prepare before setting out?

    Make sure you have installed and can run patch 1.1 and the expansion called "The Stetchkov Syndicate". Change the resolution to the one you want to use in the "Swat4X.ini" file and also change your keybinds while running the expansion, since that is what we have been using. The original game and the expansion are different games and the settings do not carry over.

    We might need to start running two games. We're now approaching 9-10 players, which is really going to make everything a bit easy.

    The expansion scales up well. To more players, how many people have it?

    We've been playing with the expansion since the start.

    8 players is about max for co-op on even the expansion maps...

    Today is Monday.
    Tomorrow will be Tuesday.
    Tactical Tuesday?

    I'll be on mumble looking for tactical friends from 7.30 UK time tomorrow. If we get more than 8 folks then two games is probably best.

    Also, I made a discovery in the single player mode: shooting guns makes people scared (and cooperative). Charging in to a room and blasting the ceiling with a fully automatic SMG was great fun and (reasonably) effective. I will however cooperate and play in a more measured manner tomorrow if that's what my teammates want.

    Well worth noting, maybe we should give it a go! We haven't been reluctant to use other unconventional pacification methods before...

    It is my intention to join tomorrow for more SWAT. :)
