The Jumpgate Welcome Thread

Hi Jumpgaters, and welcome to Gamers With Jobs!

So, login in, introduce yourself, say Hi! to Veloxi, and poke around a bit!

Hehe... Well Hell o!

I like the name of these forums, It describes me much better than ""gamer""...

Good to know there are other people out there that game and actually have jobs too

Thanks for the olive branch, mateo!

They are going to have to change your title to ""The other GWJ Recruiter"".

Howdy!

Umm, Hi. I am me. I have a job, but it''s a measly part time one whilst I finish up the college thingie.

That''s alright man, we got some other full time students around here. So long as you gots a job (homemaker counts too), and game, you''re good with us.

Take a look at the COC, and jump in!

Wow, Jumpgate...

i havnt played that in AGES.
i looked at it i think 2-3 years ago and played for a while.
Was fun back then, how is it now? Must be good if it is still in existence!

Well, if you were into pvp back then this will mean something:
The Light Fighters are faster than the fighters now....finally.

Also, there are pirate tools, player owned stations, and some whatnot as well.

What''s a COC by the way...it sounds like something I have in my pants...

Downloading now...

Sweet, anyone that loves the game enough to come post here will surely help you out. Hit f4, then : then type the name. By default you''re f5 channel will be :help but if no one is there goto f5:chat.

Too many changes to mention. The big one''s include a new flux galaxy, new ships (freighters, heavy miners), player owned stations, new equipment, and more. Also, regular patching has changed and fixed dozens, if not hundreds of little things.

Also, robear, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me or any of the other pilots in the game. We all love helping new pilots.

Hope you like it Robear. My Jumpgate handle is Nexgen

Well, okay, but when I go to Mightygames to register, there''s no choice for the United States on the country picker. Looks like it''s all Europe. And dire things are promised if I lie. Am I at the wrong site?

Robear

Robear the US server is more PvP orientated. No one has come to any harm by choosing the server they are not supposed to. www.jossh.com has the US server Patchit and allows the game to connect to the US server. Mightygames has the EU patchit and can only connect to the EU server.

\\Thanks for the welcome, we a re a scruffy bunch. but are only seldomly sober :>

And now it''s time for the Out of Context Theater:

This has been the Out of Context Theater.

Thanks for the pointer Odiche, downloading again. Whatever that means, as Rat Boy has so...capably...pointed out...

Robear

Cool, more people to talk about the game with! Sorry I haven''t been in game much lately (or on the boards for that matter). Too much school + work + being married = little free time. Though in less than 1 month I will be done with school, and then I will be around alot more )

Oh, I am Tobyus in JG....level 15 quant flying around in my Light fighter.

Cool, Tobyus, I think I''ll soon be online a lot more as well (my work schedule might finally lighten up a bit). Look forward to seeing you online.

I''m stuck in Step 1 of the reg process. Little round red light thing just spins and spins...

Robear

So I need to pick a server?

Hmmm, I didn''t do any server picking. I just downloaded the client, registered, and logged in

Good :).

First let me say that every so often, the website pulls data from the game. This causes problems. I''m looking into it the best I can for you. Can you be more specific (and this is for the US server, right?)

For the US server, goto this page: http://www.jossh.com/support/index.html

and click Jumpgate Recruitment Center...

That''s what shows up for me as Step 1, and I didn''t see any red thing.....I also got to step 2 by creating an account named ppppp without any difficulty.

If ur problem is with the EU server, ignore them and come play with us on the US server.

Also, pick Solrain, being Solrain makes you a better person.

Also, players from lvl 0-5 spawn really weak conflux in station sectors, pretty much for the sole purpose of leveling. They decided awhile back that leveling the really low levels wasn''t all that fun, so they put those in there. Once you hit level 5 though, the xp you get from jellyfish drops to 10xp.

Welcome all you Jumpgate enthusiasts!

Might direct you to some of the other discussions regarding MMO''s that weve had. Most recently theres been a relatively heated discussion about the introduction of ""rest time"" in WoW. And dont forget to check out the well done, recently slashdotted City of Heroes preview done by Paladin.

I may have done a few reviews/editorial pieces on MMO''s myself as well in months past...

Fresh perspective is always welcome.

Im too lazy to search back through the threads but a few months ago we had a ""what it would take to be an ideal MMO"" thread.

I am quite inebriated as all i saw was Jumpgate.

So, how are you?

I''m logging into the game now, why don''t you join me?

But first, I must relieve myself.

*titter*

*EDIT BY CERTIS*

I have reformed this post into a more acceptable manner of discourse. Carry on gentlemen.

Oh she makes me so proud.....honest folks, there''s only 3-4 people in the game that act like this, and they''re all in the same squad

That''s some quality content right there. IMAGE(http://www.games-news.de/forum/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif)

That''s where I went. After I put in the first page of information and accepted the terms, it said it was creating the account, which might take a few minutes, and a little red rotating thing came on below the statement. It never went to step two.

When I killed the window and tried again, I immediately got a window saying the name I picked was in use. I tried a new name, and it hung again.

Doesn''t sound familiar?

Robear

I switched to Internet Explorer and it all worked.

Robear/Tenex, welcome to Jumpgate.

I am Bonehead in Jumpgate and if you are not an Octavian, you are either a Smurf or Cabbage. You don''t want to be one of THOSE do you?

Anyhow, please come in and give JG a try. If you are a fan of Elite or Privateer, you will love it.
