Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit Tournament

Sponsored by ahmadmob & {Darkness}
Administrated by ĐƗSsᵾmSȺᵾȻɆ

2-player and 4-player races, 4 and 8 lap races, in 4 different tracks


What is this?
After seeing the success of the CS 1.6 tournament (despite some mishaps here and there) we decided to create a Tournament about an even older game, and quite possibly one of the most fun racers to ever come out. This is a bit more complicated than the previous tournament, as we have 4 different tracks for players to race on, in 4 different heats.

Prizes (Steam Keys)
  • Hover
  • Snake Pass
  • Space Hulk Ascension
  • 12 is Better Than 6
  • Panzer Corps + Allied Corps DLC
  • The Bard's Tale
  • Skullgirls
  • OPUS: The Day We Found Earth
  • Kingdom: New Lands
  • Sid Meier's Civilization V
  • Monster Slayers + DLC
  • Space Farmers

The winner also gets an Origin account with Need For Speed Payback.

Details
  • 16 slots (can be reduced or expanded depending on interest)
  • 4 different heats | First 2 heats are 4 laps races - Last 2 heats are 8 lap races | Different track for each heat | No Traffic | No Class restriction
  • The first heat will consist of three 4-player races in Hometown; First two players from each race will advance to the next heat
  • The second heat will consist of two 3-player races in Atlantica; First 2 players from each race will advance to the next heat
  • The third heat will consist of two 2-player races in Summit; The winner of each race will advance to the next heat
  • The fourth and final Heat will consist of a single 2-player race in Empire City; The winner of this race wins the Tournament
  • Matchups will be drawn using random.org and announced in the post below
  • The winner gets the NFS:P account + 4 keys, 2nd place gets 4 keys, 3rd and 4th places take 2 keys each


Rules
  • No cheats or external assistance of any kind
  • No trying to hack or crash the host or your fellow participants
  • No letting someone else play for you
  • Participants schedule their own matches - if a player does not show up within 20 minutes, they forfeit the match

Violating these rules results in disqualification and a ban from the forum. Other behaviour that is not explicitly covered by these rules, but deemed unsportsmanlike or otherwise inappropriate for a tournament, may also lead to disqualification.

How to enter
  • You must be a member for at least 3 months and have no warnings to be eligible for participation.
  • You must have a ping lower than 200ms regarding Europe(Frankfurt) in [[Please login to see this link.]]
  • Post in this thread to enter
  • We suggest that you state the continent you're located in (either in your post or by PMing DisSumSauce) so you can be matched in relatively localized matches. Keep in mind this is not a requirement
  • If you want to volunteer for being a host in your race, make sure to mention it in your post. (More info about hosting a lobby is given below)

How to play
Once all slots are filled, the lobby description and password to be used will be sent out to all participants.

We require that you use this version of the game (which uses the Modern Patch), to ensure the game will be compatible with modern systems:
[[Please login to see this link.]] | Password: cs.rin.ru | Only the base archive is needed, the extra language packs are optional

Notes:
  1. Type "allcars" on your keyboard in the main menu to unlock all cars, and "empire" to unlock Empire City.
  2. If the game crashes right at the menu screen set the nfs3.exe in compatibility mode for "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)", this should resolve the issue. If that's not the case and the game does still crash, set the value to "Windows 98 / Windows Me" which will make the game run properly 100%.

The game will be launched with GameRanger ([[Please login to see this link.]]), as described below.
Please note that players and especially the host of each race should use a VPN of their choice to hide their IP from GameRanger and from other players in the lobby.

Setting up GameRanger
-Installing and setting up an account-
Start the installer and go through the setup wizard. You will need to provide an email so you can activate your GameRanger account. We recommend using a throwaway email (like [[Please login to see this link.]]) for this procedure.
Note: If GameRanger gets stuck on "Logging in" while setting up, make sure that you have clicked the activation link sent in your mail address and then restart the program.

-Adding the game to your account-
To add a game, simply go to "Edit" -> "Options" and a window will pop up.
Image

On the opened window, find Need For Speed III: Hot Pursuit and click "Browse" to locate the exe file (nfs3.exe) of the game.
Image

Hosting a race
1. Open GameRanger and go to "File" -> "Host a Game"
Image

2. A window will open, where you will sellect Need For Speed II: Hot Pursuit and a max number of players (leave it at 8).
The description and password of the room to be used will be sent privately via PMs.
Image

3. After that you'll have to wait for all players to join and then you start the game by pressing "Start"
Image

4. Inside the game go to "Connect Players" -> "Netwrok (TCP)" -> Select port 1030 and start a lobby. Right after that go back to Main Menu (Disconnect from the lobby)
Image
Image
Image
Image

5. Now go to "Connect Players" -> "Network (IPX)" -> "Create Match"
Image
Image
Image

That's it, you're now hosting a lobby!

Joining a race
1. Open GameRanger and select the "My Games" category from the dropdown.
Image

2. Use the room description that will be sent to you to find the room your need to join. Double click it and enter the password that will be sent via PM to join.
Image

3. Once the host sets up the lobby, the game will launch automatically.
You need to navigate to "Connect Players" -> "Network (IPX)" and join the game.
Image
Image
Image


We need a volunteer host for each race, who will be able to (as mentioned above) use a VPN of their choice in order to ensure their privacy. Make sure to mention in your post if you want to volunteer as a host.
The host is also responsible for providing a screenshot of the race result (PrintScreen creates a png screenshot file in the screenshots folder of the game) to confirm the finishing grid positions.

Good luck and have fun!

The heats and current standings can be found in the post below.

Really looking forward to this, one of the very first games I ever played. Everyone, make sure you understand that this is NFS 3 from 1998 and not one of the later NFS, some of which also have "Hot Pursuit" in their name.

I changed the title to make this more clear. Can't wait to see you in the track, ℝess.

Just wanted to emphasize on the fact that the host of each race will have their IP "visible" to all other players (it can be found by simply capturing traffic).
Also, the IP of all the players in the lobby are "visible" to the host; so if you want to ensure your privacy, you should absolutely use a VPN.

There are some VPN services with free trial you can use, like TunnelBear.

If you have a VPN subscription and would like to volunteer as a host for your lobby, make sure to mention it in your post.

(For the record, I'm a volunteer for hosting the lobbies I participate in.)

If all the slots are filled up quickly we will add more, and a new heat with its own track.

Hello there.
I can't believe that you found more players in a single day than us in two weeks :evil: And we are on a CS website !
Of course I am in. I guess there is no vacation for me ::P
However, I never played the game so don't expect much coming from me.
I can host a game thanks to my lifetime VPN access. I live in western Europe (GMT +2)

YES, WAATS IS IN!
And, about filling the slots quickly: We hyped it a bit before actually making it public, plus this is actually a good game @== .
And don't worry about never having played it, it's really easy to get used to, start running hotlaps!
