Endless frustrations? I have both Firefox and IE on my machine and use both for testing, and I honestly have no idea what you are talking about. IE 6 is a super-refined browser, with no frustrations to speak of. Firefox is nice too, and it has the tabbed browsing functionality over IE.

Well, most people (the ones that are not slashdotters etc) suffer through millions of pop-up ads, sound ads, bookmarks changing randomly, their homepage is suddenly a new one, theyve got 5-6 "Casino" buttons in their browser, all this causes it to run extremely slow, and so on. Alot of this can be blamed on 3rd party explioters of IE of course, and not IE itself, but for the end user, this fact makes no difference.

You can sure be a wiseguy and say their dumb for visiting porn sites, or not downloading avant-browser or google toolbar, but I'll just tell them to use Firefox instead.

Heh, I looked at extentions again , and installed "Nuke anything", which was really cool, you can just right-click, and click "remove object" on anything, ads, text, whatever and its gone from the page.. amazing For the ultimate sound-paranoid like me the Flash- click to play is also HIGHLY recommended..

I've been using Opera for the past few years...I avoid IE anytime I can...

Opera is good, (and norwegian! like me ) I've even purhcased it to get rid of the banner, and I also believed strongly it was the best browser out there, until I downloaded Firebird (now Firefox), all the extensions make it alot more attractive than Opera, since it can be configured to do excactly what YOU need, _if_ you want, you can even put in IRC clients, tetris, minesweeper, google toolbar, mouse gestures, tab preferences, to mention a few.. you can see them all here : http://texturizer.net/firefox/extensions/

Guess I'm going to have to break down and download Firefox now!

And you wont regret it. FireFox is bliss I tell you! Its just so much better than IE its just painful to even think how many people who going thru endless frustrations for years by avoiding this 10 mb download. I've only opened IE for testing purposes like 2 times the last year or so.

Yep UT2004 kinda sets a new benchmark for FPS multiplayer games. Have you noticed you can also get the game to read the chat text for you?, it sounds like stephen hawking, but its a cool extra.

Ill have to work on the voice recognition tho, everytime I say "Bravo" it hears "Delta" from some wierd reason..

FireBird is the best browser on the planet, IMO you'd have to be either mad or ignorant to still surfing Suffering the internet with Microsoft Pop-up Exploder.

I dont like the new name tho.. firefox.. sounds all lame

5. Fake smilies and HL2 Feb 8, 2004, 13:32 BicycleRepairMan
 
Scientists distinguish between genuine and fake smiles by using a coding system called the Facial Action Coding System (FACS), which was devised by Professor Paul Ekman of the University of California and Dr Wallace V. Friesen of the University of Kentucky.

If I remember correctly , Paul Ekman was the guy who helped valve with facial expressions in HL2, as mentioned in the HL2 video.. Am I right?

It's smart for developers to include DX9 now. It's more important to be cutting edge than easy to run in a game like this.

I strongly disagree. nobody will play a game their computer cant cope with, atleast theyll get tired real quickly from stuttering around.

Sure it would be both smart and cool of them to include DX9 features, but lets face it, they would have to be optional anyway, so they couldnt let DX9 be a deciding factor in the gameplay. So if epic had spent months coding and redoing graphics for DX9, would it be worth it? They chose to focus on better gameplay and more gameplay related features like vehicles, netcode, damage system, mod support, voice over IP, demo recording, and so on.

the "cutting edge stuff" like DX9 will have its glory days later than all you people seem to believe

Quake3 was the first game to require hardware accelleration, even though it was around long before Q3, still its only now we can really see the fruits of what the whole 3D-graphics buisness can do with games.

Part of the reason people still play games like CS, is because EVERYONE can run it. Its online community, people wont leave their poor friends behind to play the latest graphics show-off

Right, so you want all new games NOT to use DX9 features, just so most people can run it in full detail? Is everyone that defends UT2003/4 a moron?

First of all, try and stay away from the usual "Idiot" and "Moron" name calling with anyone that disagree with you, it just makes you look like an ass.

Secondly, no, thats not what I wsa trying to say. The FACT is that MOST people I know that has a computer, can barely run UT2003/4.

I've got a fancy 9800pro myself so I have no problem running new DX9 games, and I'd love to see some of them. But I also like playing MP games, and if I want my friends to come along, the game needs to be playable for those who doesnt have the same card I've got. So the question is.. Sure epic could put all those DOOM3 shadows and stuff and the people with the 50 best computers in the world could drool over its smoothness

This is a game designed for most people, and since only a small percentage of gamers can enjoy DX9 right now, its not top priority. One year from now, all those fancy DX9 games will be out, we can all enjoy them.

Games have made the "lets make teh leet supagraphics game!!"-mistake before, its called "Trespasser" and nobody could run it above 2fps at the time.

Outdated graphics with uninspired and regurgitated gameplay

Outdated graphics... as in "more than 5 % of gamers out there can actually run the game in full detail?"

uninspired gameplay.. well, its deathmatch perfected, we'll see. I think it might be cool to play.

I for one wasnt too impressed with the much-hyped FarCry demo.. SP doesnt excite me much, the last good one I tried was Prince of Persia TSOT. I'm kinda loosing faith in FPS singleplayer, I hope games like Stalker, Doom3 and HL2 might prove me wrong.

1. there may be people who still have a slow computer
2. there may be people who play it for old times feeling
3. there may be people who dont like the newer ones because they simply suck gameplay-wise or are too unrealistic, etc, etc
and the list goes on if you actually show some common sense.


1 and 2. I personally would rather play Quake1 or maybe some mod for an older game, since the CS community is complete crap.

3. Newer games are better, CS fans are just too busy playing CS to even check them out, as I said.


and JFYI, there are still tens of thousands people playing this game every day and you cant imagine it? oh and, other newer games also have enough cheaters if you want to hunt those.

I can imagine it, what I dont understand is WHY they play CS, not that they do play it, which they obviously do. I cant understand WHY anyone would buy a britney spears record either, but alot obviously do.

Most cheaters play CS for sure. There are cheaters in other games too, yes, but not in the ones I play.

sorry but I dont tolerante any of this "I dont understand it so its stupid" mentality.

No, lets all just stop wondering why things are the way they are. Lets not ever try to critize the people who go with the flow., that way we can make sure CS will be the only game on this planet anyone ever plays.

It still amazes me that people still play CS. CS was once the best damn mod on planet earth, but those days are long gone. Newer and better mods have arrived a long time ago, and more importantly the CS-community is so bad by now, that jumping on a pub CS server is like diving into a pool of fresh dog-poo

see, and it amazes me that there are people out there who dont understand the simplest things. but I mostly agree on the other points.

I'm even more confused now.. You are amazed I dont understand that the least attractive game in the world attracts the most players...? Before CS, the gaming community was one that was always looking for new and exciting games to play.. people upgraded their 486 just to play Quake, CTF doubled quake player numbers in like a day or so..

Nowadays bigger , better games and mods arrive all the time,but people are to busy catching the latest CS-cheater to even check them out. If this is one of the "Simplest things" I just dont know what to say.

31. Re: STEAM IS SPYWARE Jan 26, 2004, 05:25 BicycleRepairMan
 
So what if it can be defined as "spyware" if you really try hard enough (as it uses the porn-dialers you downloaded in it's cache file to allocate space)

So what? The danger of so-called "Spyware" or "adware" is that it uses info on your computer to send you viagra-spam and messenger-popups and places new favourites in IE you dont want

Does Steam do any of these things? No. Is valve an evil corporation trying to get you into online-casinos, and sell you viagra? No. They are making games. Great games. And with steam, they are trying to put down both the whole publishing industry and pirates in one shot, which means for us, cheaper games and more money directly to game-developers.

doesnt steam force you to have the newest version of each game installed? I wont play CS1.6. it simply sucks and is totally unbalanced. so I will stay with 1.5 without steam.

WTF is this the game refers to one of the games many gangs, the HAITIAN gang! what the hell else where they gonna say? "Kill the you-know-who"?

And guess what, if it wasnt for all this lawsuits and shit, I never would have heard of, or noticed the "Kill the Haitians" phrase at all. I get so pissed of all this BS, I wish I had programming skills so I could make a game called "Pick your favourite nationality or ethnic group, and kill them."

People need to find something better to do than suing video games.

Mr Gar:
RO is far better than DOD IMO. And I've been playing DOD for years (from beta 2.0) But since RO was released I think ive started up DOD like twice and played maybe 5 minutes total.

It has bombed city maps with rubble like DOD, yes, but they are MUCH bigger and better than DOD's.
RO-Danzig for example feels like an ACTUAL city , not just I bunch of big boxes with window textures

But they also have huge outdoor maps, and some of the custom maps are really good, like RO-Kaukasus42 like the name suggests, its a map set in a mountain region. Also there are maps with trenches etc.

So if you download and try this amazing mod, and you really should, be sure to also get the community mappack

PS. there are some excellent map shots in the link in my sig, as well as mirrors for the mod and mappack(scroll down)

News Comments > UT2003 & UT2004 Incompatible
28. Re: :| Jan 20, 2004, 14:48 BicycleRepairMan
 
I recently reformatted my PC and was contemplating reinstalling UT2003 as it can be pretty fun, but this announement has discouraged me from doing so. I don't play UT enough to warrent having BOTH on my system and now that they are incompatible (ie I cannot "upgrade" UT2k3 to UT2k4)

Well just uninstall BF1942 and COD, and download Red Orchestra for UT2003 instead that'll save some space

besides, whats the big deal of just uninstalling UT3 in a like a month or so, when you've gotten UT4?

I dont really mind this at all, saves mod teams the time of making the UT3 version working with the UT4 version, and they dont have to dumb down the UT4 features of mod to make it UT3 compatible..
