News Comments > Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Kick on Connect Fix Coming
7. Re: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Kick on Connect Fix Coming Mar 3, 2010, 11:28 raVen
 
I'm enjoying the single player more than I enjoyed MW2's so far. The game UI feels way clunkier than MW2 but overall I think I like BC2 more.

I've only tried a little multiplayer due to that kicking bug. Hopefully i'll get more time over this weekend to play it.

Unless they obtained written, explicit consent from the current IP owners before they started working on this project, they were setting themselves up for this.

The thing is they had done that.
In 2005, Phoenix Online Studios received a Cease & Desist letter from Vivendi Universal, the owners of the King's Quest IP, in regards to our work on The Silver Lining. We complied with the request, and over the months that followed, we were able to work out a non-commercial fan license with Vivendi that allowed us to continue our work on the game.

Deltas of files are surpisingly small. you should read up on incremental backup systems if you think it's HUGE.

News Comments > BioShock 2 DLC Next Month
11. Re: BioShock 2 DLC Next Month Feb 22, 2010, 15:29 raVen
 
Is this going to include no-lag multiplayer?

I think I'm done with games that don't have dedicated servers. I only tried it because single-player seemed much crashier after updating to the latest patch. Now I almost regret trying it; it isn't fun shooting at someone and warping into a wall only to turn and try and shoot again to warp to the opposite wall.

Way to kill multiplayer!

And why is it 159 MB?!?!?!?
In the hotfix they added support for OpenCL, it probably has a ton of extra tools / platform support for OpenCL.

I'm sure they found out about it while testing the release of 9.12 and before testing was finished they had a patch. Instead of having to test a new package I assume they tested the hot-fix on it's own.

I'm guessing this is the 'fastest' way it could get out with a decent amount of testing. I installed 9.12 but haven't installed the hot-fix yet; I'll probably do that tonight.

edit: They also seem to do monthly releases rather than whenever they make a new driver. (NVidia) I'm sure they were trying to meet the deadline.

Wow, NVidia didn't release a new GPU this year, and they're giving Intel shit about Larrabee? Go figure Kettle calling the Pot black.
I almost wish nvidia had released a card so I could get an msrp priced Radeon.

People on the WoW forums also report that they got "hacked" by converting to Battle.Net.

Beware of blizzard.net it is not battle.net and they will probably steal your info.

If 3.3 comes out in nov/dec I don't think they'd let us sit for 12 months without a content patch.

Blues have come out and said 3.3 is the last content patch before Cataclysm. (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=20464486377&postId=203051101516&sid=1#1)

I'm guessing this means that Cataclysm is coming out first.

So what they really are saying is that they had such little faith in their game they gave it away.

Having little faith in the market buyers is different than having little faith in their game.

I suggest people targeting women consumers look at WiiFit marketing.

I'm not going to comment on how it looks. Just look at the sales.

Everyone gets penguins as long as you login within the required time (If you have already converted your account you'll get one.) Confirmed from the WoW login screen.

I don't think it has much truth to it, and that site really made me feel like I was at a malware site. On that basis alone I wish to discredit that site.

No other evidence to me has pointed to them closing up shop on 3D card chipsets in the near future: NVIDIA still has the lions share of the market1, They advertise in games way more than ATi (The way it's meant to be played), Most companies I have worked for get mostly NVIDIA workstation cards as they tend to work with Maya better (Or so the IT guys say)

I'm just saying from my point of view I think it is a very sky is falling statement coming from that other site. The news about the Intel/NVIDIA chipset stuff has been around for a long time. NVIDIA completely dropping out of the 3D card market is extremely unlikely and from where I stand ludicrous to even consider a possibility.

I'll change my mind if NVIDIA makes a press release about them leaving the GPU market.
