46. Weather Forecast Jul 30, 2004, 17:51 Ronin
 
OK, this is really kinda freaky and cool at the same time, so I'm probably going to end up posting this more than once.

I just checked out the weather forecast for next week (wanted to see if it was worth washing my car). August 2nd and August 4th there are predictions of thunderstorms, and cloudy for the 3rd.

Oh, I forgot to mention, this is Arizona. We don't get a lot of rain...or clouds, for that matter.

Cue twilight zone music....

50. Re: AA...again Jul 29, 2004, 18:39 Ronin
 
They're not saying it makes it so you don't have to, they're saying it's a better quality / performance tradeoff. This seems to have increasingly become the case with games as of late.

I understand what they're trying to say, but I'm looking at the pictures, and they ALL suck, the higher res ones just suck less. I can't see how running at 1024x768 with 4xAA wouldn't be better than 1280x1024 with no AA.

47. AA...again Jul 29, 2004, 18:15 Ronin
 
Since my comment has been quickly buried, doesn't anyone else have a problem with their screenshots saying that higher res makes it so you don't have to use AA?

As I stated in the OOTB thread...

Though one problem I do have with the article, is the bit about cranking up the AA not having any spectacular effects, going on to show screenshots to prove this point...guess what, they all suck. Its just that each individual step up in res is a little less sucky, but non really reach the levels that can be attained by 4x AA. Not that I have a system that can run this, but I'm just saying.

80. The HardOCP guide, etc... Jul 29, 2004, 15:42 Ronin
 
Blue, you gotta make the new HardOCP DOOM 3 guide a news item, a lot of useful info in there.

Though one problem I do have with the article, is the bit about cranking up the AA not having any spectacular effects, going on to show screenshots to prove this point...guess what, they all suck. Its just that each individual step up in res is a little less sucky, but non really reach the levels that can be attained by 4x AA. Not that I have a system that can run this, but I'm just saying.

And to Zathrus, number 60, I understand its a beta. I was pointing that out in the reality that there realy are no 64-bit applications available, aside from Linux itself.

And we're not talking about administering databases here, are we? LOL

48. Re: Did A Slight Upgrade, Might Do More Jul 29, 2004, 13:27 Ronin
 
iSphinx I dunno man the AMD 64 is pretty sexy, but I just refuse to buy a CPU that's friggin expensive, that has millions of extra transistors for 64-bit functionality that nothing seems to be using yet.

Wait until the software market catches up with the hardware market.

Here here...not a good sign when the 64-bit version of XP runs games slower than the 32-bit version when using an AMD 64.

My current system, as if anyone cares:

XP2200+ (DOOM 3 may convince me of a faster cpu)
1 GB Crucial PC3200 DDR400 (kind of a waste without a XP3000+ 400)
9800 Pro 128

In the end I'm expecting 30+ fps on medium detail, 2-4x AA and AF, at 1024x768. However, if I can run at that on high detail at 800x600, I'll do it...but I fear my Pro 128 will be the limiting factor for texture settings.

Back to my reply to zaq, even if I need to upgrade to an XP3000+, I should be comfortable for the next year...at which time a good 64-bit cpu and a 512 MB PCI-X video card will be on the market and not too bad of a price (I'm referring to the video card as being on the market).

News Comments > No Win98 DOOM 3
95. Re: No subject Jul 28, 2004, 02:15 Ronin
 
The majority of gamers will already have WinXP or Win2k.

Precisely. I'm looking at the web statistics for my gaming site, and 55.26% of my visitors use XP, followed by 98 and 2000, both between 7 and 8%.

41. Supremacy and such... Jul 27, 2004, 15:54 Ronin
 
I thought Supremacy was good, and to agree with others, its only failing point was the overly abundant shakey cam. Good job, you're copying Michael Bay from The Rock...guess what? He only did it for one scene.

AND WHERE THE HELL IS MY DOOM 3 NEWS???

Oh, btw, if anyone's interested, here's my shameless plug for the second part of my FPS tribute:

News Comments > DOOM 3 Gets Creative
47. Re: I Wish Creative Would Go Away Jul 26, 2004, 13:13 Ronin
 
LOVED my old AUREAL 2 (or whatever) based soundcard. That thing was awesome for the price.

I had the Diamond Monster Sound MX300, which was powered by Aureal...sadly, that was the last good thing that Diamond ever did before they disappeared beneath the waves of 3DFX and Creative.

For those of you that remember before the days of full 3D cards that fit into AGP slots, when you had to have a seperate card for 3D rendering that was attached to your 2D card...Diamond made a damn good 2D card.

But Carmack says that—despite the uncertainty and risk—independence is its own reward. "The bottom line is that we like being in the driver's seat," he says. "We can take our games to whatever publishers we want, and those publishers cough up a lot of money for them."

God bless John Carmack. Again, one of the many reasons why he and id software kick copious amounts of ass.

In reply to #8 Chris

It depends on what you consider a spoiler. I didn't want to know that both the cacodemons and cyberdemon would be coming back...I would have liked to find out for myself.

As simple as the gameplay may be, I don't want to hear about "when you go here, and do this, this freaky thing happens", etc.
