A copy of our event rules can be found here.
In order to better secure your hardware, we require that you list the specs of your gaming rig on our Hardware Spec Sheet .
Please have this waiver printed and signed before attending LANcryption!
If between the ages of 16 and 17, a parent will need to accompany you and SIGN THE WAIVER IN PERSON!
Participants under the age of 16 are not permitted.
LANcryption is the BYOC LAN Party that stays faithful to the TRUE definition of a LAN Party.
"A gathering of people who play multiplayer games over a LAN"
IT'S THAT SIMPLE!
At our events, our focus is to give our gamers the best gaming experience possible.
We have been hosting LAN party events since 2003 and have continued to grow/evolve into what we are today. From null modem connections to full Gigabit switched networking, from Duke Nuke Em to Crysis, from Tron to The Matrix, from the TRS-80's to QuadCore processors, regardless of the hardware or the software, it's all about the gaming!
BYOC = Bring Your Own Computer
The BYOC section refers to the section of dedicated hard core gamers that play in random pickup games hosted both by the event as well as other players.
Each paid participant is allowed to bring (one) machine to the event.
Each paid participant is allowed to plug into (one) network drop at the event.
With the network and power designed to support the occupancy of the event, any addition power or IPs pulled is a risk to the event.
Users interested in bringing a secondary computer/server to the event can do so by purchasing a second seat for their hardware. On occasion users will be allowed to place their server behind the NOC (accessible only by remote desktop applications) to the networking admins discretion. Feel free to make your request here. Requests MUST be made prior to the date of the event.
Simple anwser, NO!
At no time will sleeping be permitted on event grounds. If you need to catch some shut eye, there are several hotels in the area.
Tournament Games will be posted on the website as soon as the information becomes available.
The BYOC will always have dedicated servers up running all of the latest First Person Shooters (FPS) as well as classics.
If you have any input as far as what games you would like to see at our event, official tournaments or BYOC, feel free to contact us.
Attendees are always more than welcome to throw up their own listen servers on their computers. If you would like to setup a dedicated server behind the NOC, please contact one of our networking gurus for details. Computers behind the NOC must have some sort of remote desktop/terminal service running for interaction.
File trading at our event is perfectly accepted!
Peer to peer network speeds operate at 10/100/1000mbps to every seat!
Prior to attending the event, please moderate yourselves by unsharing any copyrighted material that you may have shared on your system.
If sharing or leeching, be sure to update your antivirus client and do a COMPLETE sweep of your ENTIRE system PRIOR to attending the event.
- Your Computer (Duh) - make sure you have all patches and updates installed BEFORE you get to the event.
- All cables needed to power up and operate your computer system
- A patch/ethernet cable rated at CAT 5E or better with a minimum length of 10ft. Each group of 3 tables will have its own 'network bullet' and shouldn't be more than 12ft from a gamer so we recommend bringing a 6ft as well as a 15ft network cable.
- A Monitor (26" LCD/TV, 21" CRT) as long as it doesn’t exceed user power limits. If you wish to bring a larger display, purchase an extra event ticket to accommodate your massive display and power requirements
- Peripheral input devices (Mouse/Keyboard/Joystick)
- Your printed and signed waiver along with photo ID
- Money for food, snacks, drinks and any other expenses that you are likely to endure over the span of the event
Each user is given 4A (amps) to power their personal computer and accessories. Exceed this limit and you will have some VERY mad neighbors!
If you require more power for your system, consider purchasing a second seat to accommodate your power and space needs.
Do so by editing your "User Details" on the Main Menu.
For a spectator pass please see the onsite event registration booth. Spectator passes will always be available onsite during registration hours.
Spectators are ineligible for raffle prizes and tournaments. If you want swag, you will need to register as an attendee and bring your rig.
We have in excess of 400 parking spaces.
Parking is FREE!
Our network is full gigabit. Meaning gigabit drops at the seat for ALL BYOC clients!
PayPal is our ONLY means to accurately verify online payments.
If you do not have a PayPal account by now, let me be the first to welcome you to the internet!
If you are unable to prepay online for early registration, tickets will be available at the door at regular price.
Please bring your headphones and a mic. There will be plenty of ambient music and noise. We won't need yours as well :-)
The NOC (Server/Admin Area) will be handling all lost and found claims.
If you have either lost or found a personal possession, please notify the NOC.
Please use the contact us form to submit user name changes.
