Not sure why're you're whining they're improving several things and I think even adding a few new abilities for the Warrior. Looks good to me.

4. Re: The truth about WoW Nov 25, 2004, 12:10 DrEvil
 
The real truth is that if people had did what Blizzard asked, none of them would be waiting.

I've played since a few days ago and I haven't waited in a queue once.

But, no, everyone has to 'play with their friends'. Instead of picking servers with lower populations, and insisting on the high population servers.

Thanks Gandhi for the sound tip. Lowering texture detail to medium really helped my system.

Guess a 128mb video card just isn't enough these days...

"I'd prefer they just hired the talented people in the mod community to go work on NWN2 so they could get it to us sooner."



Funny you should mention that, but that's part of what they're doing Next complaint please?

1. Success... Oct 24, 2004, 17:28 DrEvil
 
<i>Success everywhere but their core business.</i>

Depends on what you think their core business is, if you think their core business is iPods and their music store, then they're wildly successful

But, yes, as far as their computers they're only mildly successful (definitely successful though since they turn a profit).

Not quote true. See RealMyst for an example of a True 3D Myst game

News Comments > New Audigy 2 Drivers
15. Re: BAH! Mar 29, 2004, 21:14 DrEvil
 
I have never had any problems with a Creative product related to drivers or hardware for that matter. I've owned everything since the SoundBlaster Pro up to a SoundBlaster Audigy. Additionally, every friend I know owns and uses a Creative card and has never had issues with Creative's drivers or cards. In addition to that, the office I work at has a Creative sound card in every single machine and we have never had problems with them either. If Creative is really as bad as people make them out to be, I wonder why they're the standard when it comes to support for Audio in games (EAX, etc.)?

On the other hand...the worst and most troublesome sound card I ever owned was a Diamond Monster Sound MX200. It took them almost 2 years to deliver a driver that didn't crash most of my games. So much for Aureal.

I would highly suspect that something about your system was causing problems.

I love the heavily modified in photoshop screenshots... I guess blatent lies are now common place in videogames. I'm going to start worrying when they stop doing demos, then we're all fucked.

I don't see *ANY* photoshopped screenshots. I do however see some *ARTWORK*. Perhaps you should review your false accusations. I don't see any claims that the pictures presented are screenshots.

Guess I Wont be buying 2004 then.. any game that requires cd in drive to play wont be BOUGHT here...


Guess you won't be buying any games then. I don't know of any recent games that don't require the CD to be in the drive.

Of course, the catch with UT2004 is that you only need the CD in the drive to start the game (as far as I can tell). So you don't have to keep it in the whole time.

Aditionally, the drive doesn't spin the whole time the CD is in the drive. It checks it once at startup and then eventually it spins down completely and you never hear it again while running the game.

I'd just be happy if they doubled the performance of SimCity 4. It's atrociously slow sometimes.

As announced on the forums, they will NOT be adding multiplayer support for the OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN of Hordes of the Underdark. You can however create modules based on HoTU material that are multiplayer.

Look in the HoTU General discussion forum for a long official explanation about this.

They have never said that HoTU would be multiplayer, people just assumed (wrongly), even when the HoTU website has always said it was a single-player adventure.

In fact, the survey they sent out plus the number of downloads of single player modules on their site indicated that the majority of online NWN users preferred great single player modules.

3. Re: Shouldn't that be... Dec 13, 2003, 02:23 DrEvil
 
Actually, the original game was called 'Divinity: The Sword of Lies', then CDV (their oh so wondrous publisher) got ahold of it and called it 'Divine Divinity' and forced Larian to rename it per their contract.

However, I was extremely disappointed with Larian, because as great as Divine Divinity was, it had several bugs that took them almost a *YEAR* to fix without so much as a peep from them for almost a 6 month period. Really hacked me off.

"I don't know about that, but at least these aren't the drivers that overheat our GPUs and f-up our monitor."

Um. No such thing ever happened. It was a bunch of ATi haters that started this rumour. It was disproven by ATi's head of driver support, several review sites, and hundreds of independent conformations. A lot of hot air was all that was behind it. The drivers have never overheated GPU's or destroyed monitors. Only idiot users have caused that so far.

16. Re: Gah. Nov 20, 2003, 10:36 DrEvil
 
I'm not sure about what you're saying about the spellcaster levels, Bioware seems to say different, here are some quotes from them:

"Palemasters get access to epic spells at level 15 under the same rules as any other high level spellcasting class."

"I think the +1 spellcaster level only applies to the first spellcasting class you took when creating your character, so a wiz/sor/pm would get +1 wiz spells every odd pm level."

"He has quite a lot of HP for a caster (deathless vigor, d6 hd, add toughness for even more) for each 2 levels of PM, your spell progression from the original caster class you picked first is continued by one level."

And as far as the complaint about summoning undead, one person asks:

"Does that list of creatures summoned by Summon Greater undead apply to epic clerics who cast create greater undead?"

Answer:
"No, this is a pale master only ability."

Or another question:
"Spell progression, does this imply access to higher level spells?

If you go the minimum sorc level of 6, then palemaster up to 16, do you get 5th level spells? You know, as a sorc 6/pale master 10?"

Answer:
"You get the same spells as a sorceror level 11
(6 [sorc] + (10 [pale master] /2)). (rough calculation)"

"Additional spell-casting ability is sacrificed for a stronger melee presence."

As far as "proper" prestige classes. Obviously Wizards of the Coast agrees with the change since they've put their stamp of approval on the game. I think they're slightly more qualified to judge what is "proper".
