People take my insults far too seriously here.

Which begs the question.. why do you keep on insulting people if you know it bugs them?

11. Pictures Nov 2, 2007, 05:02 shul
 
Hah, very nice

I like all of the pictures, isn't Hudson spider-dog in the first one? why would super-dog have spider man's symbol?

As for Gunnar, the zoro custom, being black, is such a perfect mach :-)

Thanks for listening to your followers, el presidente, and you are not a dork for posting these

No!! Noooo!! You can't say something good about this game!! everybody else hate it here, you just can't come in here and speak highly about something we all dislike.

I bought the game, I enjoy the game and I wish the damned Israeli servers will start working

Someone is DDOSing Israel for the last couple of weeks (you'd thought they would shut down those ip addresses by now..)

7. The cake *is* a lie! (minor spoiler) Oct 26, 2007, 05:01 shul
 
Well.. maybe it is, maybe its not.. this is a great example of a genre invented *and* prod itself in the foot at the same time, you see:
- The cake is virtual all the way, so is it real? is it a lie?
- The cake is a lie? so how come it is shown at the end?
- The cake is not a lie? we should have seen it in one of the rooms..
- The cake is a metaphor for promises never met - I like this one, here the *game itself* manipulates us to meet it's expectations in order to win the final accolades (song, cake, another background, understanding blue's comments) while putting itself on "our side", planting the idea of cake in GLADoS mind (using the orb) while knowing all along that this insentive may have got us through the game, it supplies an image of a cake at the end, so we won't be dissapointed.

what do u think ?

3. AV8? Sep 1, 2007, 18:59 shul
 
Blue, did you mean A8V? If so - I had the same problem quite some time ago and it was the beginning of the end for that board..

Also.. I think you may be asking too much off an A8V with an AGP card, Bioshock is quite the resource hog.

I don't know what games you have, but I think its safe to assume you can't use "windows" to run them, you can use Windows XP. 2000,NT,98 and Vista will not run 100% of your games.

Seeing that Microsoft does not backward support games (and programming languages, and runtime envs) while wine does (wine is not emulation) on linux, I'd say you need to join the wine/cedega/code weaver crossoffice ASAP if you want to continue being able to play 100% of the games you own.

I don't see my needs alone; I, too, have not used linux when all it was is a way to boot your machine to a text console. I didn't use it before nvidia drivers were available, even. So I am your average joe in that regard; that's exactly why I see how games in linux will be beneficial to the average joe.

also, Vista is such a success it will get XP to sell more at 2008 than at 2007... http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/07/21/0624233

tried answering your other thread with quotes and stuff , but there is some problem, so you'll need to find my answers in there somewhere (hint-identation).

as for this post, beamer, I hold a CS degree as well and I can't understand what you are on about, I know CGI people, home users, people in developing countries use linux, with no CS degree whatsoever, why would the western world need microsofts pat on the back ?

Oh, btw, china uses linux as well.. ehmm..

No, shul. You proved nothing wrong. There aren't enough gamers to make gaming on linux viable. And there's no good reason for games to go to linux. There's no good reason for gamers to go to linux, either.]

This relates to the circular logic applied; there aren't enough gamers because there aren't enough games. Looking at the gamers around me, the'd be happy to install freely available OS rather than paying for a virus infested hassle.

Linux is more stable than Windows. This is useful if you're running servers. Linux is more open than Windows. This is useful if you have the knowledge to take advantage of it.]

Tried Ubuntu lately?

Windows, on the other hand, is a self-contained enviroment. The variables are far fewer. Most Windows builds are somewhat similar. This allows devs to test far more efficiently. And it's still a nightmare.]

That's just wrong, I am involved with several multiplatform softwares and none had more issues in linux compared to windows, on the other hand, issues in windows are usually related to faulty concepts that no one can debug because they are part of the os (threads, for example, act differently in win98, winxp, and vista)

Why should developers enter the world of Linux? So they can have more headaches? So they can spend more money for hardly any more profits? ]

Hmm.. checked out how many game servers which run on linux are there? checked the community around nwn1 on linux?

Why should gamers go to Linux? Again, more headaches and fewer choices?]

again with the circular logic, and as for headaches, I simply don't agree, try out ubuntu, really (I am an FC user myself, btw)


If you use Linux and you want to game: dual boot. It's simple. There's no reason not to have a version of windows on your system if it serves some of your purposes, unless you're one of those idiots that thinks Microsoft is out to get you.]

already answered by another poster, but to re-iterate on his theme: I wrote code for linux which does all sorts of data manipulations and gathering for a project, I don't want to stop it and a VM is not a viable choice, so please tell me, should I buy a new computer now?

Yes, Vista is arguably a step back, and if Microsoft doesn't respond the community will. But Me was a step back and it didn't matter. XP came along and became the best gaming platform the PC has ever seen. Why would ANYONE want to abandon that, on the developer or consumer side?]

Vista is more than a step back from a linux point of view, vista locks all future games for the PC on directX 10 so xbox 360 will be the only platform worth migrating too.. sounds a bit like a monopol to me, wouldn't you say? and by locking I don't mean that the games wouldn't be portable, thats because C and C++ are ANSI, I mean that WGA won't let you install DX10 on any other platform than vista. and sence OpenGL gives the same capabilities as DX10 I reckon this is not exactly because XP does not have the right software..

So do tell me, why are you so eager to give unplausable reasons to stay with windows when others like to use other OSs?


Probably because he's an idiot.]

Sorry if you got insolted, I really thought you were a troll..

is this some kind of a stupid troll? why would linux have no reason to be in linux? I'm involved with linux and I think it has, and so are many others, now; since linux is open source the members of the community decide where it goes, and it takes only one (me , in this case) to prove your postulate is wrong.
