2. Re: iPhone Kill Standalone GPS? Sep 25, 2009, 05:47 Armengar
 
what a crap article. Ive been using my i900 omnia as a GPS since I bought it. I bought navman quite cheaply, and coupled with GPS gate the omnia fires up gps quite quickly (and in doors). I have no problems multitasking my omnia in the car - the only fiddle is the power cable as there isnt a dedicated mount available. HDOP is anywhere from 1.5m to 5m.

My ford happily bluetooths to the phone so I have control from the steering wheel and can easily make calls on it. Sure the omnia + software is more expensive than a standalone GPS but the phone is far more versitile.

Abstaining from caffeinated beverages is part of the recommended treatment, as is staying away from fat, spicy foods, soft drinks, alcohol, and about anything that is enjoyable, so we'll have to see about all that going forward, but for now I'm being good.

Fuck that game. Id rather die. I justa bout live on pepsi max, curry, more curry, thai green curry. All my chicken is jamaican jerked although I am still on the wagon after 8 months (im Armengar and im an alcoholic) and ive not had a smoke in a year.

edit: props to the airline quote, one of my fav films.

I wouldnt exactly call it buggy as hell. 1.2 was the best improvement out there. It runs flawless for me now.

It suits its purpose though - still good to see what people are buying.

I think quite a few are old timers on here: Apr 12, 2002, 13:37 although im only an infrequent poster (visit daily though)

Im just not sure. Not enough detail yet to warrant me pre ordering. NS1 nearly lost me my marriage. I was one of the first donors at 187combat and pretty much glued to it.

This just looks too dark - like doom3 - and not in a good way either. NS1 had the right balance I think with the old HL1 engine (for its time!).

I think i'll wait.

I misread this as the teaser trailer of his helicopter death must be unlocked.

"wide peripheral support " ? directinput was invented for a reason you know. its not rocket science to have multiple inputs.

Oh right, you HARD CODED the console inputs....

DirectX 9 and 10 - you code for dx10 and have optouts for 9. not difficult - even for the console version.

Oh right, you HARD CODED the console graphics....

VoIP - directsound takes care of this, even for the 360 I believe.

let me guess....

We have various gametypes on our servers and we alter the respawn times. We have some instaspawn and some vanilla. PL maps are horrific on instaspawn whereas the likes of CTF arent too bad.

why should they not support dx8? Its hardly a demanding game. I play at work on a dx8 card and it runs fine at 1024x768 (about 35fps constant unless im in dustbowl...)

Pointless upgrading for the sake of it.

still no dbl PL sdk our pl_lazytown really needs to be changed to a double PL!

GT - its not so much that TF2 didnt innovate, H.A.V.E appears to have identical featureset to TF2. No doubt TF2 borrowed classes from other games such as the sniper, soldier heavy etc. But I can think of only 2 games and a mod that have a soldier, heavy weapons, demo, sniper, scout in them - all as separate classes where the weapon models, ammo models and general getup are near-as-dammnit identical to TF2 (the others being TFC and quake fortress).

It is a clone and a fairly obvious one too. You state that various parts of TF2 came from other games - I agree - but they didnt take ALL their parts from another 'single' game.

142. Re: SC2 LAN & Piracy Jul 1, 2009, 06:44 Armengar
 
If steam has hacked copies floating about then im sure battlenet will for SC2. Plus I turn my steam client "offline" for LAN play at lan parties, why can they not have an "offline mode" that makes you authenticate and hold an authentication ticket on your machine?

Lazy programming really. Im sure they will reverse the decision in the end.

I held off on this for a long time. I was still happy with M:TW2 but since it was 50% at the weekend I thought it was a bargain at 14.99 now with some extra updates we have a winner!

You're doing it wrong. Have a "poisoned" bin of food in plain sight. Then hide the real food for the birds.
