    Next Game Time: (Today) Monday May 18 at 1:00pm GMT

    Join this OnePlus Crew by Leandroo below. Then we can play together more easily. It's called OnePlus Community, not the other one with the PLUS tag.

    A few of us are playing right now. Go online and join crew members or pick the option to join me or Leandroo (Ravota). That's why it's important you join the crew.

    Hi Everyone!

    As many of you may know, Epic Games has GTA V for free to own until next Thursday. I thought this was a great opportunity for another Community Games Night (weekend). I'll give some instructions below how to get set up. Let's all play GTA V together!! (I'm planning to organize matches over Saturday, and maybe Sunday and Monday too. Feel free to create your own as well).

    1. Go to https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/grand-theft-auto-v/home
    2. Log in to your account or sign up for an account if you don't have one already.
    3. Add the game to your account my "purchasing" it for free. (You can do this in the app after step 4 if you want).
    4. Download the Epic Games Launcher app and install on your PC (sorry, doesn't work on Mac unless you have Windows running in Bootcamp, and even that might not work).
    5. After GTA V is added to your account, you will see it in the Game Launcher app after you are logged in. Click on "Install" GTA V to start the download. (This is a massive 94GB download! Be prepared to wait a long time if you have a slow connection or download speeds are low for any reason. I have a 75mbps connection and was downloading at about 8MB/s for about 2.5 hours).
    6. Once the game is downloaded and installed, you will need to download (another 1GB) and sign up for a RockStar Games Social Club account (I know, another account and password!). This is the account you use to add friends and connect with others online. When you try to launch the game it will tell you to download this. You will also need to verify your email account through this, and it can take a long time for the email to show up. It took 20 minutes for me.
    7. After you are all registered and set up, you need to play through the prologue in the story mode to unlock online play.
    8. You can add friends through the Social Club (links in game or by browser login) and that's how we can all play together.
    9. Feel free to create your own Crews (teams) and we will see which Crew reigns supreme!

    That's about it. It's a fairly long and complicated process to get going but I'm looking forward to pulling heists, robbing banks, and escaping the cops with everyone! Tag everyone you think might be interested below :D

    Have fun @luigimario

    Those go kart driving skills will pay off. :D Saw Luigi and Mario toys in such vehicles at the store last weekend. Thought of you. Hope that you are well.

    I ended up receiving 25 mails by the end of the hour.... :p
    So yes, please be patient... it takes long time to receive verification mail and resend verification doesn't help.

    Hahaha, what were you watching? Hopefully the game downloads quickly.

    Did you figure out the drive cloning?

    I am trying the program that you used right now. So far it seems ok :)
    Probably I have to do it all again next week when I receive an NVMe SSD drive :)

    Hey everyone, I'm proposing the first game in 3 hours from now (1pm GMT). I still need to figure out how to set up a match and invite people etc. but if anyone here already knows how please tag me. Or if you'd like to organize the game, that's cool too!

    Yes kind of. I'm not sure how I want to manage my storage. I will have:
    -1tb NVMe
    -500gb NVMe
    -500gb sata ssd
    -1tb HDD

    I need at least 500gb for windows either NVMe or sata ssd, then I want my main Pop!OS on a NVMe and another partition/disk for the /home which I can also access from a fedora distro. Hmm everything's so complicated^^

    waiting for some more games that were a hit, to be out for free.

    Anyways, GTA VI is around the corner, everyone knows GTA had lost the people's interest in it and to regain back they gave it free.
