News Comments > UT2004 Demo Soon

Outdated graphics with uninspired and regurgitated gameplay

Outdated graphics...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.

2. Re: wrong link Jan 21, 2004, 13:38 BicycleRepairMan
 
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..

Well, this is a high-profiled case, and they're dying to catch someone for it , but even if they do, AND somehow manages to prove guilt in court, he'll STILL be out in a year or whatever, and then he can get ANY network admin security job he wants, and probably get paid whatever he wants, hackers and virus makers who somehow get (in)famous always will.

So, what can you possibly lose by hacking..?

So do you ask questions without even reading the link which has a plethora of information behind it?

No. It seems this "plethora of information" shows up as "technical babble" after a run in my in-brain translator

I think I'll pass on this one since I dont even know how to "flash" a BIOS, and it seems it requires a floppy drive, which I havent bothered to install, and I dont know how to backup if all this stuff goes wrong, as it probably will.

Lastly, I get more than decent FPS in all games I've tried so far, so maybe I'll try it once HL2/DOOM3 is out.

Thanks for the replies and help tho.

Alright call me a noob or whatever, does this thing give me increased PERFORMANCE on my 9800Pro (128MB)?

And if so, is it unstable?
should I download it, or is it just to score 3dmark points?

I use Mozilla Thunderbird for mail.http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/
Also has image blocking, and a neat, spam-filter you can train. (you simply mark messages as "junk" and TB looks at the whole composition, title, adress etc etc and puts everything similar in a junk-folder, and deletes it after a specified time.. I dont get much spam myself, but i've heard this works perfectly)

Also, with a non MS mail client, your'e probably not a target for viruses either, not directly MS's fault ofcourse, but still true..

And It goes well with my Firebird http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/
ofcourse..

I don't think they were being brutal but just putting the guy out of his misery at that point.

Thats what humans do to cats and dogs. Not other human beings if we can avoid it.

That clip certainly struck that chord for me, and I'm not at all comfortable with the idea that such links are viewed in the context of me thinking that it was funny, or even cool...

I also think the clip showed an interesting yet extremely brutal side of war, I think people need to see it, and how brutal this "war on terror" is, For instance, do you think that wounded 3rd guy would go anywhere? Yet they killed him all the same. Anyways I'm all for some media that makes people think.

HOWEVER, I do think it was posted in bit of an akward context.. While the words "Media of the day" doesnt hint at the content, I'm used to seeing finnish disco lessons and Badger, badger movies there. Should have been called "Disturbing MOTD" or something.

No, not really. There are some bots, but they are so crappy they cant be called bots really. The team focuses totally on getting the multiplayer right.

Youll get very used to the no crosshair thing, its truly well implemented in RO, so well, that after all these years of playing FPS shooters, the last couple of months has made me feel crosshairs are just "wierd things" in games now, like its something that shouldnt be there.

EDIT: And I have yet to see a cheat or anyone calling anyone cheater in RO, great community.

Yeah, if you go by the logic "that the better it is the more popular it is..", well then "The spice girls" is the best band the world has ever seen, and "Ricki Lake" is an interesting show, and Counter-Strike is currently the best mod out there.

You be the judge.

I dont know why there's all this talk about a sunday release, since the frontpage clearly says "Saturday 10." Anyhow, it doesnt really matter, this is the best mod/game on this planet right now, and it looks like its going to get alot better in this release, so you'd better check it out. And please, do not get scared cause its a UT2003 game, I've played all there is of DOOM and Quake mods myself and it took long for me to even accept "that other engine" could be cool. This mod puts my former one-wayed thinking to shame.
