what, no fixes to the faction wars? When I last played, I had a hell of a time trying to get my faction to occupy the territory I had cleared.

Sorry dude, the 360 does not use an Intel chip. It uses a powerpc architecture IBM chip. The original xbox used an Intel chip, maybe that's what you're thinking of. Intel also makes chips called "Xeon", maybe that's confusing you too.

The representative has no obligation unless the person himself says "im going to kill myself"

OK, what exactly do you think "suicidal" means?

Hmm, I don't recall seeing it, so it may have been filtered - I'll have to look for it.

I sent it Thursday (Christmas Day) at 9:36 PM EST if that helps. Oh yeah, and I sent it from a different e-mail address than I use for my bluesnews registration.

Blue, I sent you an e-mail a couple of days ago about major new releases of the "GWX" Silent Hunter III mod, and the "Fall from Heaven 2" Civ4 BTS mod. Why not post about that?

If any of my drives die, I think I'll have a nervous breakdown.

Dear lord, man. Its called backups. You have to be prepared for any disk dying at any time, otherwise you're just setting yourself up for a nervous breakdown.

Egosoft must be in the Christmas spirit. 1.4 was just released on Steam. :p

Awesome. Thanks for the heads up, maybe I'll give it a shot tonight.

awesome, I bought this game when it came out but I've been distracted by a million other titles, I'll have to give it a shot over my holiday break. Here's hoping the patch makes it to steam soon.

If they're going to make Bioshock II as long as the first Bioshock was, there sure as hell better vary the gameplay a little bit more. I was bored out of my mind by the end of the game.

My uncle was in the trenches for most of the Korean war. What do you ask a guy who was fighting and watching his friend die for 3 years? The only thing I could think of asking was how many Chinese he saw dying for their country (the Chinese claim 100,000 of their soldiers were killed during the war, the US says more than a million Chinese soldiers were killed). All my uncle said was "there were a lot of them."

Icculus is the man. I can't believe a single guy has ported so many AAA games to linux. If only the companies would pay for an extra developer or two so we wouldn't have to wait so damn long.

I struggled for a day and a half trying to get GTA4 running. I was an inch away from requesting a refund from steam. But I finally got it working by starting it with a bunch of -width -height -refreshrate and -norestrictions options (my monitor was going "out of range" when the game started). Then I tweaked the graphics settings and removed the command line options once my graphics settings were saved. Then I had to drop down the settings some more once I played the game for a little while. But, after all that, I've been playing it constantly, having a blast. There's no serious issues once you get the game running, just some disappearing/reappearing textures once in a while, and a short frame rate drop here and there.

FYI, there's nothing you can do to keep the social club from *running* when the game starts, but there's no need to log in. Just click "Play" in the bottom left of the social club window. Personally I signed up for both GFWL and the social club so that they can keep track of my achievements.

All I know is that I played GTA4 for the first time until 2AM last night, then I dreamed about GTA4 until I woke up.

Can anyone point me in the right direction into building a PVR from scratch, especially as far as the right video card/capture card to use?

3. Re: Left 4 Dead & Sacred 2 Steam Updates Dec 4, 2008, 21:53 skyguy
 
steam updates are never automatic for me anymore. I always have to "validate game files" in order to get steam to download updates now. And yes I restart steam regularly and have "always keep this game up to date" enabled. Is this happening for anyone else?
