  • autospot - why does the client even KNOW where people are in order to spot them? Shit, no wonder the BF games are so laggy, every client knows everything about every other client that it has no need to know about!]
  • The client does need to know this. Game clients have known where EVERY other player is for years. Going back to DOOM! How else do you think you can change your player view while watching a demo record?

    The game has to know this for many reasons. Where the bullet came from. What sounds to make and where to make them from (not to mention calculating in effects on that sound due to the environment.)

    Is this the patch that fixes the minimap by either making it fully transparent *instead of like 90%*, or gives us the ability to change the size?

    I'm not sure which would be more cruel to say to you - that it won't happen, or that yes, they're doing it...on blizzard time. :)

    Or to stop bitching about really petty things when there are much larger issues that need to be dealt with.

    Will Windows 7 be the new XP

    Yes. At least with me unless Win8 makes some drastic UI decisions that I know it wont.

    And that is just on a personal note. On a business note (I work IT) we are not even remotely looking at a upgrade to Win8 for at least 2 years. We got enough flack moving to Office 2007 and Win7 from users that refuse to learn something new.

    You can do this with any Bink files in any game.

    I thought this was common knowledge for years. Used it way back in RvS days.

    I love how a large group of people seem to be "OK" with this. It's people like these that are helping kill PC gaming.

    Stop thinking these horrible ports are OK! Developers will think PC users don't give a shit about good ports and will only continue to take the easy way out.

    I've already got Back To Karkand DLC but this is a pretty worthy deal.

    $120 bucks worth of 5 x DLC for only $50 is good.

    Yay, someone actually has sense and did the math! If you are into bf3 and were intending on getting all the dlc's then this a FANTASTIC deal, all the fluff on top is just icing on the cake.

    People just see the EA name and automatically think they are going to get shafted, which honestly is the case most of the time. Here they are actually putting together a good package that saves you money.
    Nevermind the fact that the map packs are stupidly overpriced to begin with.

    So tell me how this is a "FANTASTIC deal"?

    Everyone needs to be reminded that prior to the complete edition none of the Dragon Age Origins DLC was obtainable through Steam yet it remained on Steam throughout; given that their stated reason for pulling some of their games off of Steam is demonstrably false, I think it's safe to say EA is, as usual, full of shit.
    Valve changed their ToS just before Crysis 2 came out. Dragon Age Origins was 'grandfathered' in so it and all other games prior to Crisis 2 were unaffected.

    News Comments > Diablo III Hacking?

    Not sure if it has been posted yet but:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5151273122

    The "hacking" ("compromising" is probably a better word, since no real "hacking" is going on) being seen in D3 is no different than what World of Warcraft players have been seeing for five years or so. The sad thing is, if no one bought game currency (gold, credits, whatever) from these third-party companies, then essentially no account compromises would be occurring. Compromises not done by gold selling companies are very rare indeed. They strip one player to sell to another, because it's much more efficient than "farming" gold. They still farm some of course, but they do it purely with compromised accounts.

    Unfortunately, these compromisers make a lot of money off of the practice (because players buy gold) and so they have a lot of resources to use to try to get your password from you directly, or through your computer. Some of their poorly translated phishing e-mails may be laughable, but their trojans, infected websites, etc. are not funny at all.

    If you have the physical or mobile authenticator (both of which major banks use and charge $30+ for) the chances of you being compromised are very, very small. I've personally examined the MSInfo files of nearly all of the handful of WoW players who have actually been compromised through an authenticator, and the sheer number of backdoor programs and other malware on their systems has been mind boggling. Probably not coincidentally, these same people were also running a disturbing number of file-sharing and download programs, including ones which are commonly known to not be safe.

    Again, compromising game accounts is a big business in some countries. They have people on their payroll who spread false rumors of "hacked through my authenticator" just to try to discourage people from using them. We charge $6.50 for the physical authenticator, because that's exactly what it costs us to make them. The mobile one is free because we don't have to pay a factory to build them. Use them, and enjoy your gaming without someone mucking with your stuff.

    Ugg. Like GTA4, I'll wait for the hack that bypasses this.
    Yeah really. More needless social network crap.

    Why do companies always think we want this shit? Oh I know why! They can use it as an excuse for not allowing us to run our own servers in FPS games and take away offline single player because of DRM.

    17 day delay to make sure PC sales don't screw over their glorious console sales.

    I guess its better than a 6 month delay that Ubi usually does.
