So it's accurate to say skiing in general is much improved now or...?

That sound mod looks (err sounds) cool.

Yeah...I'm still on the fence. While the dungeons especially are missing sufficient sound ambiance this mod seems "too much".

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

Apple II here as well, not even a IIe iirc; green monochrome. And I too still enjoyed every moment immensely as much as any modern fancy pants game these days. It's all relative.

Deadhead here too and all I can say is "wow". And not really in a good way.

Yeah, looks that way. The BF3 forums are lit up about this patch breaking the game.

I can't tear myself away from Skyrim anyway.

I can't imagine the gameplay being better than BC2 but we'll see.

Then you're pretty unimaginative and apparently also didn't play the beta?

Crashed for me only on exit.. and i actually think this is because of punkbuster...

Likely. See if PBSetup.exe has an update for BC2. I played fine without doing so last night but it was only for 5 minutes.

I bought that $20 set and none of those issues though it's obviously a cheap printing. The text got closer to the edge of the page than it should have at one point in Book 2 but not even close to being cut off. Also a couple pages came loose but that's a much my fault as anyone. I'm really hard on things. And the font is small especially in Book 3 but that's because it's so lengthy. Book 4 had a larger, more widely spaced one, for example.

Yeah this series rocks. Hands down my favorite now. HBO turned me on to it too and I wish I hadn't been so late to the party but much better late than never. Waiting years and years between books woulda sucked too.

Oh, fucking Punkbuster. I bought a copy of BF2 this year, and I haven't been able to play a game yet for longer than 30 seconds.

Dude. Google for "PBsetup.exe". Download and launch. Add BF2. Hit Update. Enjoy playing for as long as you'd like.

No offense, but an XBox might be more up your alley.

Current status:

Looks like all quests including faction and main quest are done from base game (expansions have been started on, blood moon & tribunal being worked on now).

Whats needed to be done:
http://morroblivion.com/forums/morroblivion/mods/763
Things like cell ownership so NPCs appropriately react when you steal, and they don't inappropriately sell stuff, and cobwebs in tombs, etc. Looks like its basically playable as it is, its mostly tweaking to more match oblivion.

Yeah I downloaded a bunch of stuff to get this going and then read much of the morrowind wilderness is totally empty (though of course you could make the case it pretty much was in the vanilla original too) which kind of turned me off.

Cool. Note this mod will download and install just by connecting to a server running it. At least the beta versions worked that way. I met a kid playing who didn't even know what mods were and stumbled upon it (and them) this way which I thought was pretty cool.

Also the pagefile is like 40-to-1 read/write, at least in Windows 7, so you don't need to worry about tons of unnecessary writes and the subsequent wear-and-tear.

And I tried to load my device drivers high but I couldn't stop eating Oreos.

I still don't see pings in the bc2 browser... it's the only game like that.

Yeah you definitely should. Try the suggestion below. FWIW, A server that pings "20" in the browser gives me like 100 in-game. Not really a problem, but a bit strange.
