71. Anybody having probs with 3dmark2001SE? Feb 12, 2003, 17:05 Geese
 
Since I've installed 3dmark03, I no longer can run my 3dmark2001SE. I get an error that states I don't have Direct X 8.1 installed (which is true, since I now have DX 9.0 installed)

Running Win XP w/SP1, DX 9.0
Geforce 3 Ti200

Anybody have the same problem?

They should just refrain from making false promises, repeatedly. It just ain't no way to run a popsicle stand.

Well, I agree with you there. It's not the best business practice in the world. Although, I don't think they knowingly made false promises (just MHO), rather they just bit off more than they could chew (their foot and weren't able to deliver.

And yeah, I couldn't live the rest of my life without playing another PC game either!

As a total aside...I just started playing Soldier of Fortune 2 again...now with the bots mod that was recently brought out. Granted...it's nowhere near the bot level of UT, but it makes an enjoyable play, if you don't wanna/can't go online with high bandwidth or enjoy LAN parties as I do. (I'm just trying to keep busy with other games until UT2K3 comes out

from the IRC chat:

"It has all the weapons that are in the maps we're releasing with the exception of the super weapons (redeemer, ion cannon)"

42. Re: 2 things Sep 10, 2002, 16:50 Geese
 
if you're at home, feeling hungry and decide to order a pizza and no one shows up after you have placed your order do you console yourself with the fact that people in Africa are worse off than you or do you get a little bit miffed that your pizza didn't come

Actually, to answer that, I do both. Yes, whenever I get upset about something, I stop to think just how important whatever the issue is that I'm upset about. It puts things in perspective. Of course, I still get miffed, but maybe I get miffed to a lesser degree, because I *do* realize that in general I live 'in relative comfort' as you put it.

Difference in the pizza and the demo is that no one has placed an order (well, maybe thats not totally true, in that I *have* already pre-paid for UT2K3) Anyways....It's not like they said, give me 50.00 and the demo will be out in a week, and then didn't deliver. I pre-paid my money knowing full well the release dates were shaky, at best.

Sure, they've 'promised' the demo a couple of times, and things didn't happen. In the grand scheme of things...big deal. It's not like they 'owe' us anything. They made a product that alot of us enjoyed (UT), and (at least the honest ones) we paid a fair amount of money for that privilege. Do they 'owe' me another game because I bought the first one?? Absolutely not. I'm happy that they are making another one. Do I get disappointed when the demo doesn't come out when they say it will? Of course...but I don't rag them over it.

Regardless of what they say...in the end it will be out when it's out. Either believe it, or don't...but nothing will make it come out sooner or later. It will just happen.

And I will be glad when it does.

Yeah, those are all valid observations / arguments / critiques. Just to cover their own butts, they should keep quiet.

But as far as repeatedly pushing back the release date...(and please correct me if I'm wrong, because I really don't 100% know the answer to this) - I was under the assumption that the only time they pushed back the demo after announcing its pending arrival was back in June. I think the story back then was 'the demo will be out late June, and the game out in late July' - I remember that because I hosted a LAN party early July hoping to at least have the demo available...

Anyways...I think that was the only time they reneged on the demo release date...(admittedly, it could happen again this weekend)

I share your pain...I get frustrated too when I think I've got the demo at the tips of my fingers and then it's ripped out of my hands... oh well... patience is a virtue.

'Where did I mention I was pirating it.'

Oh, I'm sorry...I guess I misunderstood you. Perhaps you can enlighten me about the meaning of 'advanced demo' nudge nudge, wink wink?

While I agree that the best policy is probably to just keep quiet until its totally done and ready... you have to realize these designers are just human. They want to release it just as much as we want to play it, and so when they see 'light at the end of the tunnel' they wanna give us something by telling us it might be out soon. But unfortunately, things do happen. I doubt very seriously that they are doing it on purpose to upset us.

No, it just has the ability to rip off the designers by not paying them for their hard work.

If you really want to show your disdain for a game/game company, then don't buy or PLAY their game... but don't take the punk way out and pirate it. (directed at #9)
