Hi guys, SnowWolf here.
I am still looking into various options available for this but here is one we just tested. The consensus is that it is a little cumbersome to use but…its a lobby, and it is always on.
- Shift-Tab in game and launch the steam browser.
- Enter your log in as follows:
your user name - can be anything other than empty or someone who is already on
no password is required
for channel type: #HWRLobby
You are now in a lobby, or more accurately an irc chat room with a lobby complex. ShiftTab to get in and out…
Point is that it works and has some advantages over the old lobby. Its always on, even in game. you don’t even have to launch HW to chill with other HW players. Just your browser.
If you are the only one there its because I just figured this out, but invite your friends to test this out and see if people like it. As the word spreads more people will start using it. Along the way we can decide as a community which service to use - there are many. Which is another advantage - it can never go down, always a back up.
I cant take a screenshot for some reason but here is a photo:
