I've been wondering - how many people would be intrested in having a play session in this marvelous old mod someday?

Mod is completely free - all you need is Source SDK Base 2006.

Mod itself can be downloaded from here: http://www.moddb.com/mods/sourceforts

The unofficial fix is the version that works with SteamPipe.

Would anyone be intrested in such event?

There's a tf2 version of this somewhere, maybe have a gameday with something like that.

Hell, maybe make some maps for the gamemode too, since we're a mapping community

I believe Jusa is alluding to the fact that some of us have a certain nostalgia to SourceForts. While FortWars is technically similar, it isn't the game I/we had lots of fun playing years and years ago.

I don't remember SourceForts, but I do remember Fortress Forever.

We would need a hl2 gameday, then, which is possible as most people on tf2maps have half life 2 and it's expansions, But I don't know if we're even able to set up Half Life servers

But since this is a tf2maps website, I would suggest doing FortWars unless setting up a hl2 server is easy.

I can't even launch sourceforts because of the missing menu thing

iirc Alli looked and there were at least 2 sourceforts servers still up and running.

Everyone who has TF2 has Source and Source is all you need to play SF. All that you need to download is Source SDK Base 2006 (which steam downloads automaticly) and the SF installer linked above.

And dunno how you are going to play Half Life 2 as a multiplayer...

I think the mods might be able to figure something out, might want to talk to Berry or Muddy, or someone else who knows server setup procedures.

TF2maps mods suddenly figure out a way to play HL2 as a multiplayer? You making very little sense right now.

There is a mod called Synergy that allows you to ply HL2 maps in multiplayer but then again, what on earth does that have to do with playing Source Forts.

I must've misread, sorry
