News Comments > NVIDIA Investigating TDR Issues

Your Google-Fu is greater than mine.

Not Google-Fu, but first-hand experience. =P Having had the issue for over a month, I've been (fruitlessly) looking into solutions for just as long.

Glad to see an attempt is finally being made to resolve it... Hopefully.

TDR stands for "timeout detection and recovery"; it's apparently a part of Windows 7. From what I understand, what happens is that your computer reduces the power to your card, thinking nothing's using it, and Windows detects that as a problem and then the TDR error kicks in. When that happens, it makes your system freeze for a second, the screen goes black for 4-5 seconds, and then comes back with a "the display driver stopped responding" popup. It's not a hard crash (for me, anyway), but it can be annoying especially when it happens four or five times in under an hour.

I started getting them as soon as I installed a GTX 560 Ti last month, but the problem only seems to happen when I'm in Firefox. I've had three sets of Geforce drivers during the month and so far they've all done it.

For the time being, disabling TDR has worked for me.

Nice Tribes video on TTH. The narrator could've used a little more excitement in his voice, but I actually got a good T1/2 vibe from it.

Are there demo plans? I've never played the original and this looks/sounds like something I'd like, but would still prefer to "try" first.

I hadn't heard of this game until someone mentioned over in the D3 thread, and am glad they did: looks fun, and it's promising that it has connections to the Titan Quest crew.

Great, if it works. But if the stats site is anything like the BFBC2 stats page that perpetually shows a queue of 5000 and never updates properly... Meh.

At first glance, I read the title as meaning that you could now directly buy in-game experience points for CoD games... Now that would be an exciting new low.

I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. If T:A (T&A?) lives up to the hype, then great. If not, I won't be any more disappointed than I was with T:V.

That being said, it would be AWESOME to end up with a successful T1/2 hybrid... Here's to hoping.

For rocket launchers and similar weapons where it makes sense, sure. But including auto-aim/lock-on for weapons like assault rifles and sniper rifles? There's no reason for it.

Neither Tribes 1, Tribes 2, BF2/1943/2142, or any other PC FPS game I can think of off the top of my head felt the need to hold a player's hand in terms of aiming.

How is including it here in any way a "fundamental" gameplay element? It didn't seem necessary in the original game and the same can be said of what I've seen in Prejudice so far. The gameplay would be fine without it, no excuses.

Note that no one ever replied to my question, so whether or not the Ascension team was brought on to develop Tribes: Ascend is up in the air.

I didn't play any Ultima games. What made it great compared to what is coming out these days?

This read is a good start:

What is wrong with that page?

I'm going to assume that the video actually works, given the number of comments here, but I tried firing up the video at least a half-dozen times this afternoon and it always just sat on "loading" no matter how long I wait.

I eventually just found it on YouTube, which loaded instantly. >_<

News Comments > Brink Class Trailer, EU Preorder Bonuses
6. Re: Brink Class Trailer, EU Preorder Bonuses Mar 15, 2011, 18:19 Morgan19
 
Is Brink's only mode like ET:QW, in that you sort of have "scripted" MP levels? Like it's do one objective, proceed to the next section of the map, do something else, proceed, etc.?

If that's the case, that would be the one thing I'm not too excited about... That rigid setup (vs. something like a domination mode, where your overall progression and chokpoints are more fluid) never appealed to me much, just seemed too forced.

News Comments > Tribes: Ascend Announced

also always wondered why the renegades guys didnt do their own game

They actually were working on their own Tribes-like game called Ascension (oddly enough). It looked like it'd gotten pretty far but after 6+ years of development they pulled the plug on it last January, I think due to lack of resources. The Ascension website was fully functional at one point with media and screenshots, but it's no longer live.

Here's a forum post detailing the game and its cancellation: http://forums.renwerx.com/showthread.php?t=5343

(EDIT) Well this is interesting... Another forum post (linked below) mentions that the Renwerx/Ascension team was acquired by a "major studio". It may be a leap, but given the similarity between the names Ascension and Ascend, I have to wonder if the former Renwerx folks are now working on Tribes: Ascend?
