News Comments > Valve Announces Steam Guard
16. Re: Valve Announces Steam Guard Mar 3, 2011, 14:16 Virus
 
It's painless on iTunes until the recovery fails and doesn't grab all of your music. I've been going back and forth with Apple's customer service for almost two years now trying to get back an album I bought on the iTunes store just after the iPhone launched. Luckily I was able to recover the album via torrent (after paying full retail price) because Apple certainly didn't give a flying fuck.

(If you've ever wondered why Apple products are "bug free", the expression is "deny till you die")

News Comments > No RAGE Dedicated Server?
39. Uhm... Nov 6, 2009, 01:32 Virus
 
What was the last ID game that had dedicated server support anyways? Doom 3 didn't... so Quake 3 then? when was that, late 99? ID hasn't made PC games for a long time, they make fancy tech demos to advertise their engine.

It's a bummer because haven't had a gaming experience quite like a 16 v 16 Quake 3 Arena CTF match since, well, quake 3.

I can't imagine how increasing the stash size could take several weeks or would in any way risk making the game unplayable... so that smells pretty fishy, but maybe that's just me.

The best part is when I launch L4D it tells me I need to upgrade drivers... that's going to fuck up a lot of people I predict.

News Comments > ArmA II Next Year
11. Re: No subject Aug 18, 2008, 14:37 Virus
 
Yea i absolutely loved Flashpoint and bought ArmA but was slightly disappointed.

Flashpoint was pretty buggy and unpolished when it was released, but it was at least playable... I could barely play ArmA

News Comments > OpenGL 3.0 Specs Released, Unhappiness Ensues
30. Re: Someone enlighten me Aug 12, 2008, 23:03 Virus
 
I'm not nearly as concerned with Firefox not recognizing OpenGL... there are a good number of actual English words it doesn't know.

I'm not 100% clear on this article... half the complaints are that the new OpenGL breaks compatibility with the old OpenGL, and the the other half are complaining that it's basically the same?


It sounds like they're basically waving the white flag on the API war and pretending like they were never fighting it. Which is funny, because if OpenGL was only supposed to be for CAD they should have done that about 15 years ago. I mean, how many features do CAD programs really need in the graphics department? I remember using AutoCAD back in High School about 6 years ago and (graphically mind you) it looked about exactly like the newest version of Solid works or whatever program you want to insert. Not to mention they both look like Milkshape3d... I dunno about you guys but the CNC machines i've seen only mill based on the surface mesh... which I think OpenGL had nailed down by about, what, 1992?

That's fine by me, as much as I still feel OpenGL is superior to Direct3D (go look at some DX9 vs DX10 benchmarks if you're not sure... then go look at some DX8.1 vs DX9 especially in any HL2 engine games. Then tell me why there is a 15-20% performance drop before you even start using features from the newer versions). It'll probably be for the best if Nvidia and ATI can focus on kick ass Direct3D support, which is turning into a full time job.

It's strange timing for them to give up now though, OpenGL had a HUGE opportunity to gain ground on DirectX with this whole Vista only for DX10 bullshit and they just kinda rolled over... I think a lot of developers would be excited to only write one graphic engine (rather than a DX9 engine for XP AND a dx10 engine for Vista) for their new games and still be able to run on all windows platforms AND use all the newest bells and whistles.

Am i the only person who thinks that any amount of money more than free is too much for this game, let alone any "extra" content?

Haha, yea I thought that to.

Like anyone was possibly considering the possibility that they shut it down because they hated the myst "universe".

My thoughts exactly... This game is fuxing old man. I played it back in the Beta and used to be a freaking huge fanboi for it... probably not even the same game anymore

36. Re: how about 64bit vista? Oct 9, 2007, 21:22 Virus
 
Programs compiled for 64 bit processors, all things being equal, will run faster than ones compiled for 32bit processors... marginally.

There are a lot of things that can be done in one 64bit instruction that can't be done in one 32 bit instruction and so are broken up into several instructions (meaning more clock cycles). Plus more register availability.

Homeworld
Myth series
Sacrifice
Total War series
Battlezone series

Those games are all freakin' bomb... I have to admit
Between those 5 games I think you can account for about 40% of my youth. Especially Myth, Battlezone, and Sacrifice.

If other players aren't visible to the player and aren't present... is it really necessary to even have them AI simulated? If they can't impact the player's game experience why can't you just ignore them?
