22. Re: Jedi Knight collection Sep 20, 2009, 18:41 Wookiestick
 
Well they clearly did not say improved, all new, and/or remastered - in which case you'd be paying much, much more than $20 for the pack.

Nor is it very clear that it will not work in some cases on modern hardware. It says it runs on Windows Vista and 7 but if you read the forums there are issues of people not being able to run it on those OSes-- at all. Yes, its a good deal (if it works). Good deal or not I'm not paying for software that won't run.

1. Jedi Knight collection Sep 20, 2009, 11:46 Wookiestick
 
I was about 5 minutes from ordering the Jedi Knight Collection until I read that they were rather poorly integrated and updated for Steam. It is essentially just the files from the game ripped from the disc and sold through digital distribution without any updates for modern computer systems. The only exception is the old school 1994 Dark Forces, which uses a freely available DOSbox emulator.

Pleasing to the eye-- but that would never work space wise. It's like a cross between a console and a nerf football. It would never stack in a entertainment cabinet.

12. Video Card Apr 7, 2009, 07:52 Wookiestick
 
First 3d video card was a Nvidia Riva 128 which after I tested Quake 2 and found out that it ran like crap I exchanged it for a Creative Labs 3d Blaster II (Voodoo 2 12 MB). I skipped the Voodoo 3 and bought a Geforce 2 mx after that.

7. I liked Crackdown but... Sep 4, 2008, 12:41 Wookiestick
 
I liked Crackdown but to me it was really grazing the surface of what the whole design COULD have been. It was more of a developer build of some loose ideas but nothing solid.
It was a Sandbox and nothing with a couple of cool tools and Matrix style effects.

I'm still buying the console version regardless, but their word means nothing to me. They said there was not going to be a PC version of the original either.

1. this year? I doubt it. Mar 31, 2008, 09:58 Wookiestick
 
DX10 has only been out for one year. I highly doubt we'll see it's successor in it's final form this year. A beta or a RC for vendors to try out--- maybe.

this is just too buggy as it stands to be fun. If one of the players dies the game crashes. I'll wait for a more reliable release to come out, if and when it ever does. All the same kudos to the maker for attempting to bring more coop love to the HL universe.

Will it work with other servers that aren't using the High Definition mod? Can I only connect to HD servers?

4. South Park? Mar 5, 2007, 19:18 Wookiestick
 
So... why would I want to watch a high definition video of a show that uses a computer to animate cardboard 2 dimensional characters? Don't get me wrong, I love South Park's hilarity. But the usual turnover time for South Park studios to animate their show is 3-5 days according to their website. They already have standard definition 480p on Live, but if they are more expensive then their current standard def I can live without it.

Is there anyone out there who pre-ordered DNF in 1999 to 2001-ish that still has it preordered? Morbid Curiousity must know.

4. DVD playback bug Jun 24, 2006, 01:41 Wookiestick
 
I had a system crash and reboot using these new nvidia drivers if I ran PowerDVD 7 on WinXP. I had to downgrade to the 84.xx drivers to get it working again. And that "you have no SLI" message box is completely annoying too. I think I'll wait till another major release before I try these drivers out. Too buggy.

16. Daikatana 2: the proof! Mar 8, 2006, 10:52 Wookiestick
 
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=postmessage&boardid=1&id=0&threadid=22692

Human Head Studios was originally supposed to make Daikatana 2 back when it was assummed that the first one long before release was going to be a blockbuster.

And now Human Head has brought Prey back from the dead years after it faded. Coincidence?! I think not! Does Daikatana 2 have the same future on it's horizon!?
