Man I remember playing this on the Commodore 64 way back in the day. Had a real blast with it. I'd love to see it remade. Of course there is no mention of a PC version...which pisses me off. Annoyed

Was interested in it until I found about no co-op... makes the game point less to me.

Yeah because no action game can possibly be fun or entertaining without co-op. Rolleyes

The side quests are just like any other RPG. They all are fetch quest. I'm still waiting for the first RPG where the NPC's are lazy and cowards.

All RPG quests ultimately boil down to fetching, delivering or killing stuff. However, you can make these tasks more engaging by adding interesting characters, branching paths, ambiguous moral choices, compelling backstory, etc. KOAR doesn't really do this.

Yeah...this is looking like a $10 sale purchase. Absolutely no reason to pay full price for something like that.

Dang...I'm surprised that there are still people who don't own Skyrim yet...not to mention enough of them to keep it in the top sellers week after week.

Hate to bring the thread back on topic but ...

Anyone else get 4/5 times more Crash-To-Desktop than before the Patch/HD DLC ?

I rolled back all the mods, updated my video drivers but still I'm getting CTD's every 10 minutes or so.
If I disable the HD update using the nexas mod manager thingy then I can play for 20-30minutes before I get a CTD.

Really annoying as before the last patches I'd played just over a 100 hours with only maybe 2 or 3 CTD's a week.

Only thing I've read on other forums is dropping sound quality in windows to 44 from 48 helps. I tried that, didn't help.



Have you tried removing and installing the latest SKSE loader...if you're using SkyUI, that is?

Does anyone else read current PR releases about 'celebrity' voice actors being involved in a game production and immediately get flashbacks to the mid-90s and its misguided belief in how much better games would be due to the presence of 'celebrity' actors within their FMV clips?

Whaaat? You mean the games didn't get better with big name Hollywood talent? Shocking!!! Wideeyed

They've been too quiet about this, and hiding these messages on their forum, where most users never go, isn't the way this should be handled.

This should be emailed to everyone on their list, not left up to gaming sites to report on it.

At this point, Sony is looking more forthcoming on information. At least when they screwed up they offered people a free game.

This message popped up when I signed into Steam earlier this evening. So its not just hiding on their forums.

Did Left4Dead start as a mod too? I thought that was an original IP by Valve.

Skyrim is certainly my GOTY for 2011...and possibly for 2012 too since I don't think anything else is coming out that will topple it.

Bethesda really hit it out of the park with this one. It's not perfect by any means...but the sheer volume of content and the improvements over Oblivion is staggering. I have 90 hours in and have only visited 3 cities and done 2 parts of the main questline.

I think it finally makes the game look 'complete'.

It will never be The Witcher 2 in terms of graphics...but these textures do help a lot.

On the downside...using the pack kills my enhanced night sky mod with its coloured galaxies.

I really hope they release these as free mods, like J.E. Sawyer did with his New Vegas mod.

I finally started this two nights ago, on the 360.

Why would you buy the console version of any Bethesda game..?

I second this! Why the hell would you????

Really impressed with the steam workshop! Lots of sorting options, including seeing what mods your friends are using.


Is it as good as the Nexus mod manager, though?

Looks interesting. Not "$60 on the first day" interesting, but I'll probably check it out once they've patched it up and wringed out all the DLC.

It's not $60 is $59.99, EA sees a difference why can't you?

I'm sure I'll see it once I've had my daily whack on the head with an idiot stick...

Up to 90 hours and still having tons of quests...,
Ray

80 hours here and I've only visited 2 major cities and 2 towns!! Still have a full quest log and only done 2 stages of the main quest!!

I have to force myself to ignore interesting stuff so I don't get distracted from doing interesting stuff!! It's a truly wonderful 'problem' to have in a game!!!

Mashiki Amiketo wrote on Feb 7, 2012, 18:48:
Just a heads up though. That if you're using any custom textures, a 'high res' texture will always override a low res texture. There's a flag for high-res vs low res textures in bsa/esp settings now. The hack-around types of archive invalidation that have been used in the past, do, sorta, kinda work. Not on body/armor/weapon data but on static objects with solid meshes mostly. So until a perment solution is figured out, I'm guessing either a new form of AI, or always including .egt files, just know what you're installing.

All I'm using right now is Enhanced Flora, Enhanced Night Sky, Enhanced Skill Interface and SkyUI. I'm hoping none of those are affected. Not using anything for armor, weapons, skin or clothing.

Yep, two .esp and two .bsa files that are selected through the launcher's "Data Files" section. So very easy to turn off if you suffer too much performance issues.

Excellent, thank you!


Thank you squared!!!

The stock GTX260 only has just under 900mb of ram, so I'd love to know if it can handle it at all.

Yeah...that's my biggest concern.

Will SOMEONE say something about performance after the pack???

I'm still deciding if its worth the download with my system specs:

Q8400 Core 2 Quad

Geforce GTX260(Overclocked)

4 Gigs RAM

Anyone with comparable specs running it OK?

Edit: Thanks Creston...I'll wait to hear from you.

Hmmm...currently running Windows 7 64-bit, Core 2 Quad Q8400, GTX 260(overclocked), 4 GB RAM...I'm thinking I should be able to handle this pack. Anyone know for sure?

Any ideas? Not much that I don't run at max settings these days.

Been lazy in upgrading. Was planning to wait til later in the year.
