Physics meaning explosions should not 'ghost' through walls (RTCW, HL), grenades and other world debris should tumble and roll correctly, enemies should fall backwards when shot in the chest and forwards when shot in the back ect.

Physics, or "rigid body dynamics", is actually a very difficult thing to simulate, with a very high order of complexity for the CPU. It has to do with 3D collision detection, which are translated into contacts that are transformed into physical model based on such parameters as friction, mass, gravity and joints. Speaking as someone who have been monitoring this field for about a year now, its very heavy CPU-wise. On the other hand - doing approximation is not that real-looking...

btw, a good game with aproximate physics is Max Payne

What kind of hard drive do you already have in your machine?

Well , I already have a 40GB IBM drive, and am going to use the WD (which I haven't bought yet stupid traffic.. errrr ... ) anyway, I am will be using the WD as the secondary Master and the IBM as the primary Master.

I also have a dual boot here (win2k/linux) and I hope it will work fine.

Anyway, thanks for the heads up man

I thought IBM was getting out of the HD market?

Yes, they are, going into a joint venture with Hitachi.

Above all, get one with a good warranty!

This is a good point. the WD have 3 years.

Thanks for the input,
As for IBM - as one of the most inovative companies in the field, I think its sad that IBM is loosing its credibility in the HD market...

check this out, to see what IBM done about that: http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/2002-12-02-hard-drive-deal_x.htm

About WD - check this out : http://www.storagereview.com/welcome.pl/http://www.storagereview.com/articles/200205/20020529WD800JB_1.html

WarPig,
First - love your sig.

Second - I had bad luck with maxtor as well (five years ago...), and I currently have 40GB IBM which is very fast, very quite, but have 2K bad sectors....

you didn't mention Western Digital, why is that ?

1. What HD to buy? Dec 16, 2002, 09:42 shul
 
Hi all,
I need some help here. I want to buy a new hard disk, I need something around 80GB, reliable, quite and fast (at that order).

Suggestions? bad experience?

The current HDs to choose from are: western digital 8MB cache 80GB, Seagate 80GB, Maxtor 80GB ATA 133 and IBM 80GB.

I got about an hour to choose ( I have a pretty good idea what I am going to choose, but I don't want to bias anyone :-)

shul

9. Re: The suicide bombe game Dec 7, 2002, 13:04 shul
 
By saying "it's a bit of a simplification" I was referring to your analogy between suicide bombers and the Hiroshima bombing, I don't think comparing between WWII and the current terror acts is relevant on any level.

I am very happy you found a game that suits your taste, but that doesn't mean you can ignore what it stands for.

Hyatus, I am really sorry you feel that way - but pretending such views does not exist is not something I can do, as you might have noticed, I am not the one who started this debate.

The suicide game is similar to a game about dropping an Hydrogen bomb on Japan. Killing civilians, that's bad right?

That's a bit of a simplification , don't you think?

4. Re: The suicide bombe game Dec 6, 2002, 13:22 shul
 
Seeing that people are keeling each other all the time, with conventional weapons, no matter what nationality they have, but only a small group is using the suicide bombing method, I'd say that almost all of the other games don't kill "arabs" but some sort of an "enemy" (in Max Payne , for example, you kill americans, in SWAT 3, you kill almost every nationality on the face of the earth... )

So I fail to see the argument. If there was a game where you kill innocent Arabs I think it should be condemned as this game is.

9. Re: observation on popular threads Dec 5, 2002, 13:12 shul
 
but as of this writing the top commented threads are ~83% OOTB-related...

Had the same thought earlier today ( I am not from your side of the world, so "earlier today" is equivalent to your 2am or something...)

It is probably both things... one of the OOTB had a completely non-related thread about what games can one play this days...

He even posted some notes about the above link in his site...

December 05 2002 update
Great Googly Moogly! I thought this nonsense was finally starting to peter out, but it seems that Blue's News has posted this page and the traffic is going through the roof again. I guess I'll post their link above in the Left Justified Single Cell 425 Pixel Width Table of Fame.


... looks like you bluesnewsed his site, blue :-) ...
