The Chain Game - DYOM version

 

The DYOM Chain Game

 

Welcome to the DYOM Chain Game.

This is, like every Chain Game, a game where a player calls a turn to play one of the storyline missions and upload it somewhere so the next player can continue.

It's exactly the same as the original Chain Game, oh wait there's one little difference: We play a storyline of a DYOM designer.

Just read the whole main post to understand the game.

I hope you guys 'll like this game and have a nice time playing it smile.gif

Introduction

 

The Chain Game is for anyone who wants to play along, we are going to start playing a designer's storyline from the beginning and complete it.

Please read the Rules & Guidelines before you start to play.

The Rules & Guidelines are here so that the game can progress and everyone can have an enjoyable experience while making a contribution to it's completion.

 

Joining The Chain Game is easy and new players are always welcome.

 

If you're new and want to plunge right in, simply follow the Quick Start Guide for now and read the complete set of rules later.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quick Start Guide

  • Call a turn by posting in this topic.
  • Download the uploaded DSL folder.
  • Play one mission and save the progress.
  • Upload your DSL folder (you can find it in "GTA San Andreas User Files") on Mediafire or any other uploader.
  • Post the link to your folder back here within 12 hours. Edit your original posting to do this.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rules & Guidelines

 

 

These are all the rules of The DYOM Chain Game

All the rules must be followed to play The Chain Game.

 

 

Rules

  • Do not use any kind of cheats, trainers, mods or cleo scripts. This is just a request, as far as I know it won't affect the storyline but it could be possible.

    So please don't use them because you 'll just spoil your own fun.

  • Call a turn by posting in the topic. You can say "I 'll take this turn" or "My turn" - just let us know that you are taking a turn.
  • Complete ONE mission only, save your progress, upload the DSL map and post a link back in the topic (use the Edit button).
  • Use Mediafire or any uploader to upload your DSL folder.
  • Do NOT use dyom.gtagames.nl, gtagarage.com or any website similar to upload your DLS folder, because it isn't your own storyline.
  • Use the preferred posting format
  • Wait until 3 other turns have been completed before calling another mission.
  • If 24 hours pass without another gamer completing a turn, then the '3 mission rule' is reset & anyone may call a turn. This does NOT mean to wait 24 hours between turn calls.

    So you can still say "It's my turn when he completed the mission"

  • The time limit to complete your turn is 12 hours. We will use the post time in the topic. The timer starts when a mission is called.
  • When two players call a mission, the first one does the called mission.
  • The intro mission doesn't count as a mission. So if you're the 1st one who plays then you need to play the inrto and the 1st mission.
  • Mission strategy is up to the caller - just don't use cheats, trainers, mods or cleo scripts...
  • We expect the players to adhere to the gtaforums.com rules. This includes "No warez/piracy (linking to, requesting or discussion of illegally obtaining copyrighted material) & Never open multiple accounts."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preferred posting format

 

Mission: Use the mission name as it appears on the screen. Don't use mission descriptions like "that mission where you kill Ballas."

Called by: Tell your name

Link: The link to your uploaded DSL folder, after you've completed your turn.

FAQ

 

I saw that there're some misunderstandings about The DYOM Chain Game.

So I made a FAQ to explain some misunderstandings.

Most of it is from The Chain Game FAQ but I changed some things and added some things.

 

 

Q. Do we create a storyline or do we play one?

A. We play a storyline, which is already created.

 

Q. How do you play this game?

A. The most things are explained here and here. If you still have some questions, feel free to post them.

 

Q. Where does the DSL folder go?

A. In the San Andreas User Files folder. My Douments/San Andreas User Files

 

Q. So all I do is just call a turn?

A. Yep. It's that easy. Just make a post saying you are taking a turn.

 

Q. When can I take another turn?

A. You may take another turn, when 3 turns after yours have been completed, or when a officer posts something like this. It has Been More Then 24 Hours Since The Last Turn Was Completed. The 3 Mission Wait Rule Has Been Reset And Anybody May Now Call A Turn.

 

Q. How can I help out around the Chain Game?

A. Well, just try to follow the rules. If it has been 24 hours since the last turn was completed just post something to imform people that its been 24 hours since the last turn was completed.

 

Q. How do I get my words to be striked out?

A.

 

[s]Your text goes here.[/s] 

 

 

Q. How can I get started right away?

A. Simpley follow the Quick Start Guide.

Current Mission: The last finished mission

Link: The link to the last uploaded DSL folder

Link to topic: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=468288

Story: 1997 years. San Andreas, the Desert.

"It is sometimes cold out here... sometimes hot. But it's only sometimes, the only thing is blood that is always out here. We have no rules, the sheriff of the land doesn't give a f*ck about us all. We're people... we're the police... we're the bosses. The most thing that never stopped happening is gang wars. I hope you all motherf*ckers are happy! I hope you... my cousin... I hope you're happy too, Mr. LaCaLa.

 

- Your cousin... Now an enemy of course, Oca..."

 

 

A guy name Lance Casa "LaCaLa" Lawrence got a letter from his cousin Oliver Casa "Oca" Lawrence. Lance understood that Oliver can die out there, in the sand. Oliver is begging Lance's help and Lance is on his way back from Liberty City.

It isn't finished yet.

I 'll try to add everything so everyone understands everything.

(and there're some mistakes in the rules blush.gif )

But it isn't very complicated.

 

This is how it works.

 

1. Someone (let's say me) plays a mission of a storyline.

2. I save my progress after I played 1 mission.

3. I upload my DSL folder, which contains the storyline, (located in GTA SA user files) on mediafire and post the link in the topic.

4. Someone else (let's say you) downloads the DSL folder and continues the storyline.

 

So someone plays one mission and someone else the next, untill the storyline is completed.

 

Do you get it?

Do you like the idea?

This chain game is different from John's. Here we are playing, not making.

 

A suggestion, you should choose a long storyline for this purpose.

 

EDIT:

Links to the previous chain game:

They are completely different from this one.

 

BTW, good luck. I think it's a nice idea.

@SF

 

There's no need for mediafire, I just use it if I upload something.

I 'll edit that, some mistakes and misunderstandings.

 

@shark

 

Like Nitesh said it's different from his.

But hey, we can always change the game if we run out of storylines.

If this won't die....

More important

 

Okay, I edited a lot.

 

I edited some misunderstandings, stupid mistakes and spelling mistakes.

I added a FAQ so there won't be a lot of misunderstandings anymore.

I added SP as a Chain Game Officer, you said I could add you if I wished so I did. But you can always say "No".

I added a lot of links at the right side of the post. So you don't have to scroll anymore. Just press "contents" or "top".

I added a section called "Current Storyline". You can find all the information about the storyline we're playing at the moment.

 

 

This means that The DYOM Chain Game is ready to start.

Look at Current Storyline (Here) to know which storyline we 'll play.

Of course we start with Chapter one, and after that Chapter 2, 3, etc.

 

So there still 2 questions remaining,

 

Nitesh, can you be a Chain Game Officer?

Officers aren't really needed yet.

But they are somekind of moderators and they also keep an eye on the game. - SP

So if this won't die, then you 'll be needed (though, I'm online almost everyday).

But like I said to SP, just say "No" if you don't want to be one.

 

And, the most important question

 

Who is going to play the first mission...? ph34r.gif

 

 

I already explained it here but I 'll explain it again.

  • Download the last uploaded DSL folder (in this case, the one the DYOM site)
  • Play ONE mission and save your progress.
  • Upload you DSL folder (located in My documents/GTA San Andreas User Files) on a site like Mediafire.
  • Give us the link in this topic within 12 hours (edit your previous post to do that and use the preffered posting format)
And you're done.

 

So who 'll begin the Chain Game?

 

Now read this

 

Edit: I 'll take this turn.

Edit:

 

I started the Chain Game.

 

Mission: Las Barracas

Called by: ThaBoY

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?g9g4wfd46neay33

 

So now the next one downloads the storyline, plays the intro, loads the progress,

(you press "Y" and then "N" to access the storyline menu [when in free roam] and press "load storyline progress")

and plays the next mission.

 

Btw, sorry for the triple post.

Are you going to credit JAJ for coming up with the original idea since you seem to have copied it word by word from the SA Chain Game? Some credit is due here.

@AK

 

You need to replay the intro

 

When in free roam,

 

You press "Y" and after that "N" to access the storyline menu.

Then you press "load storyline progress" and play the next mission.

When you completed it, you're back in free roam and you press "Y" and after that "N" again and you press "save storyline progress"

 

 

Does that question mean that you want to take the turn?

Edited "Current Storyline".
