I wonder if this patch removes the obnoxious advertisements for the Blu-Ray re-release of the Star Wars series from my loading screens.

Seriously? You find Ads in the loading screen obnoxious? Shit, that's when I go to the fridge. You must find those signs on the side of the freeway unbearable

Did you enjoy the original DX or System Shock 2? They both suffered from the very same issues (relative to their time, of course).

Of course I did and liked them. But lets fast forward 12 years, suggesting that it's ok for DXHR to have the same issues (along with some of it's own) as similar games from 12+ years ago is ridiculous. DXHR as far as I'm concerned only succeeds at a handful of things, and fails at another handful of things. It's a 7/10 game for me, and one I'm not even sure I'm going to bother finishing.

Edit: I'll give the drivers a try. The games performance is probably the biggest thing preventing me from enjoying it.

If you have an nVidia card, go to the "Manage 3d settings" in the driver control panel, and set "maximum pre-rendered frames" to "0" (Default is "3".). This one issue seems to be the bane of many-a-nVidia user (and, as I said when I first posted it, I still have no idea why the frak you would want to "render ahead" frames you're going to throw out anyway....).

I believe that's called "setup.exe".

This isn't really a tiger woods game until it has a ,"hit on pornstar in the stands," "Flee from golf-club wielding wife," and, "Destroy your Career in one-click," buttons.

Ahh yes! You're right, it was a Matrox Mystique. Sheesh, much time has passed since then. The Mystique was an upgrade to an old Diamond video card with 512k vram. I can't recall at the moment the exact Diamond model that card was though.

The Diamond Speedstar. Awesome card.

What are the ground rules for forum posts?
The idea behind the news forum is to provide a place to discuss gaming news. There are very few hard and fast rules. Here they are:

  • Disagree all you want but attacks of a personal nature will not be tolerated.

  • Ethnic slurs and homophobic language will not be tolerated.

  • Do not post spam, links to warez sites, or instructions on how to obtain pirated software.

  • Abusing the forums in any manner that could be construed as 'griefing' will not be tolerated.

  • Seems pretty obvious.

    I'm going to have to agree with the "ruining" part.

    IMO, adding perks rewarded you for how long you endured a game, as opposed to rewarding you with skill by playing it.

    Over time, the worst of players will get the best perks and be able to school those that are new to the game based strictly on the balance of time in the game being in their favor.

    I know it makes me sound like a grumpy old man, but I'll take Quakeworld/Quake 3 DM over anything.

    Reflexes, biatch!

    I don't like how Apple charges $500 for a device and then acts after the fact like they still own it.

    Sorry, but IMO, Android is far worse: you have *zero* ability to move purchases between Tablet A and phone B, as the purchase is tethered to the device, not the account.*

    In that respect, Apple is already superior. The majority of my investment will be in the software and music, not the hardware. Let me move it as I see fit to upgrade.

    ^D^

    * Unless, of course, this has changed since last year when was considering an Android tablet.

    Bought my first computer (486 DX2-50) largely to play this game and Ultima VII. Only had 2mb of ram in it, so it took half an hour of HD paging to load into each mission. I spent all that time eagerly watching the loading bar.

    Also remember my dad wandering in once and commenting, "Hey, that's Ginger Lynn!"
    "Who's Ginger Lynn?"
    "Uh...nothing."

    Was that before or after your mom punched him?

    On a sidenote: I still have my WC3 Collectors Edition and everything that came with it. What an awesome game. I agree, WC4 was probably the best in the series, but I upgraded just to play this one...AMD 486DX2-100. Seems so slow by today's standards...

    The royalty arguement has always been bullshit. Do the guys who built your house or car continue to get money everytime it's used? Or the guys who made the stuff that made that stuff? Or the guys who provied the raw materials to make the stuff that made that stuff? Where does it stop? Perhaps the oil companies should get royalties for everything made with their petroleum or they shouldn't allow recycling! Where does the nonsense stop? As far as I'm concerned they don't have any right, just a whopping, unjustified sense of entitlement.

    Honestly? I do agree with you (and Creston) on this.

    But...the reality is that TV/Film/Music has always been royalty-based, and it seems clear that game publishers want to do the same.

    It becomes a more complex item when you consider this: "How do you pay someone in advance for a product that you don't even know will sell?"

    Believe me, I know it sounds stupid, but a lot of the people get paid based on how well a piece of entertainment sells, as opposed to a fixed dollar value, from the artist all the way down to the "boom boy" (what ever the hell that is).

    Counter-argument would be, "just make sure you make a game that sells! Pay people a fair price for their work, and be done with it!"

    And one could then argue ok, and we'd have CoD18:MW87 and Sims 2022 to look forward to the rest of our lives.

    The old "be careful what you wish for" syndrome.

    Just sayin'.
