  • What is this event, and why is it being held?

    The castle used to be a shopping mall, but since stocking 20 vendors ALONE was horribly hard and expensive - not to mention all the customers crashing on the steps. Well I decided to fire the vendors and start selling stuff here on the web site where you can fill out order forms to buy stuff. It has worked out extremely well!

    But the castle has become deserted and only a place to admire for it's decorations anymore. Pah, I want to use it for more than eyecandy! Thus I decided to turn it into a NIGHTCLUB! Now thats something new and innovative! And fun!!

    The really cool part though, is that instead of people having to listen to bards twankering away at their intruments (I mean who in their right mind can listen to that all night?) we will have REAL GENUINE DANCE MUSIC! Yes, all those people mingling, chatting, flirting, drinking and dancing, will ALL be listening to the same songs at the exact same time! Pretty cool eh? :)) I think this has made UO History!

    The nightclubs main purpose is to serve all single Britanians looking for a little romance in their game, or real life. Want to meet Mr/Miss Right? This is the place to come! But those that just want to groove to the beat, or talk to our sympathetic bartender, are welcome as well :)





    Some things to take into consideration - READ!

    The place you are going to is a nightclub. Any rules that pertain to a real life nightclub, pertain to this one as well:

  • Remember to boot your computer before the start of the event, to avoid lag. It will be lag-o-rama tonight because we will be in a castle, we will be in Trammel, there will be hundreds of people, and the music stream will take it's own share of the bandwith.
  • Avoid logging in with Third Dawn, there will be enough lag as it is, not to mention that the decorations won't look right. Glacial staffs are dark blue in 3rd dawn :((((
  • The outer doors are locked and we have a doorman letting people in
  • To get in, you must line up
  • People with VIP tickets can walk past the line and get in free (only my closest friends)
  • Once the doorman lets you into the ticket booth, you must buy a ticket (costs only 100 gp)
  • No naked people will be let inside
  • Leave your animals at home!
  • No drunkards will be let inside, you must sober up before you are admitted
  • Trouble makers will be ejected and possibly banned

    Lining to get in, and buying tickets is just for fun and we aren't taking it very seriously, as not to urge trouble makers to make a big thing out of it. The people who line up to get a ticket will be having an advantage because not only is the ticket to get in, but it has many neat surprises inside, such as the program for the evening (know when the different highlights will happen) and serves as your raffle ticket to win wonderful prizes. Each ticket has several UNIQUE serial codes that I will personally check when the prize is claimed.

    Still want to gate your posse inside, cause trouble and ignore the rules? Sure, get ejected, get banned and miss out on the fun. Stand outside the castle while you watch people inside having fun, Hey! - thats your choice :) Just note that we aren't going to be spending too much time worrying about you, so why bother?



    The Dresscode

    The only rule is that no private parts can show. Don't come in your underwear people, this includes wearing only an apron so that your bum shows :)

    Otherwise you are pretty much free to dress how you like, but the funnest thing is of course to dress up real nice like you would to a classy nightclub. Look at this page for an example. You might also want to check the Britannian Fashion page for some good ideas.



    How can I listen to the music?

    So how on earth does it work? Oh it is easier than you can imagine, and there are no installations, no plugins - NO FUSS.

    First thing to do is BOOT YOUR MACHINE - so that your computers memory will be "clean" when you start. (if you have had many programs and processes going the music will most likely be chopped up) 1. Choose which playlist best suits your connection:

  • Big Mamas Nightclub Lo
         (for 56k users)
  • Big Mamas Nightclub Hi
         (For T1/cable/ADSL users)

    2. Click on the big Play button

    After pressing play, you might get have a window pop up, asking for a couple of simple configurations so the the stream will be the most efficient for your connection type. But it's very simple and straightforward. Before you know it, the music will start playing.

    It is normal that the connection to the stream may pause, or even disconnect at times, but it shouldn't happen very often. Just press PLAY to get it going again.

    There are a total of 39 songs and many differnent styles in music. Most of the songs should be listenable to most people so when you start hearing the playlist and don't like the current song playing, keep on listening. Something may come up that you like :)) Personally I love the playlist SO MUCH that I have been listening to it all week already and still am not tired of it :)
  • I warmly recommend installing the latest Winamp to listen to the stream. All week I had listened with RealPlayer and now that I have the newest Winamp WOW! The sound quality is WAY better! And less jumps too. So get it!



    If you experience problems - please post them on this thread! Or else email me about them. Thanks!
