Interesting side affect of your secret text sig, Batman... it's flagging our web filter at work. I can't read the comments now. LOL!

Exactly. But people don't think that way. It is the same situation with taxes.. take a little bit out of the old check each week, no one seems to care. But if we all had to write a big check each April 15th, there would be tea in the harbor.

I won't upgrade to Vista until I have to, but I won't complain when I do. I know that money spent will serve me for many years to come.

News Comments > Warmonger, Operation: Downtown Destruction Announced
18. Re: No subject Jan 9, 2007, 09:27 Atomic
 
Okay. A sniper climbs onto a roof, destroying all stairs and ladders behind him. He then spends the next half hour sniping everyone since he has the higher ground and nobody can reach him. Eventually, the other players can do enough damage to the building to blow it up. Unfortunately, by this time, the sniper has racked up tons of kills.

I wouldn't say tons.. just whatever ammo he has on him. And how can he destroy all access to himself? Only if allowed to carry an ungodly amount of explosive. There are creative ways to limit these things.

As for falling into holes, that's not good level design either. In a fully destructable environment, there would likely be very many holes to fall into. Forcing players to commit suicide would deduct from their score.

Allow other players to "rescue" teammates who have fallen into holes; could be a simple as the use key. Get points for helping, like when you heal someone. You could even introduce items like ropes or rope ladders, or allow the player to move an object in the game like a pole or beam. See? Stop thinking so linear. Fully destructable environments should create new challenges for the players and game physics should give them more creativity to respond to them.

Blue, that post is a mess. How about breaking up the links by file type using a bulleted list and only typing "registration required" once. Example:

-Update patch (version 1.3 only)
Link*, Link*, Link, Link

-Full patch (any prior version)
Link*, Link*, Link, Link

-Linux server
Link*, Link*, Link, Link

-Win 32 server
Link*, Link*, Link, Link

*=registration required

Syriana is more realistic than the true story of Johnny Cash? I had no idea "Walk the Line" was fiction.

It's too bad they can't add the ability to drag or carry a body to a safe location to revive them. I believe it was a Wolf:ET mod that let you do that. Very nice!

Sorry LugNut, 4x00 series cards are not supported. Game will not run at all (black screen, then drops you back to desktop).

you can tell he just isn't disciplined

Exactly. Like most children today, he is lazy and pampered. Look what a disciplined, hard working environment did for him:

Desperate, Jeffries arranged for Jeffrey to be placed with a Utah family that operates a remote ranch, where he spent two years without medication of any kind.

"It was a different kind of program. It's a working ranch with a lot of work to do. Instead of sending Jeffrey to a quiet room when he misbehaved, they'd have him shovel horse manure," she said.

"Whatever they did, it worked. He's still not using any medication."

Marijuana is just a drug like any other, and still not the answer to most problems, although those on both sides of the issue will tell you different.

17. Re: Looking for some advice Jun 8, 2005, 12:39 Atomic
 
Bronco,

My gaming group switched from TeamSpeak to Ventrilo several months ago and haven't looked back. Ventrilo just has better clarity (and I believe lower server overhead, depending on the codec used).

Also, I use a Plantronics USB headset and both Teamspeak and Ventrilo work fine with it, so if you don't want to get a new soundcard, that is a good option.

Nothing. There's no card you can buy in that price range that is significantly better than a 4200.

Appreciate the confirmation. That is kinda what I was feeling based on reviews. Thanks!

What's the opinion on the best video card to get around the $100 - $150 range? I have an aging TI4200 and want an interim upgrade before I completely revamp this summer to PCI-E.

TIA.

Let's talk about Michael Moore . . . . I wonder if the actions of Moore and others (Liberal Rawkers for Change) backfired.Did people get tired of hearing them? or did they actaully spur more conservatives to vote?

Absolutely, and I eluded to it earlier. The numbers certainly seem to indicate that.
