Informative Rigs. All good information.

I was trying to make a point that while EVE Online will continue to cater to gamers that like that style of play, and STO will cater to gamers who like captaining ships, Jumpgate will offer a different type of gameplay experience. In the end it is good for variety.

Although this may change after Jumpgate Evolution releases.

I have issue with that statement.

Jumpgate Evolution is fighter-based, where as STo is Cap Ship based. Obviously you know the difference, so I won't go into detail. I really haven't seen anything coming close to STO, space-wise, in MMO form. Earth and Beyond was close, but you still got ships zipping around during the 'pew pew' segment. Granted, I don't play EVE, so I don't really know how well the ships move except in the few movies I've seen.

Wasn't trying to call you out, kxmode, just adding my two-cents for what it's worth... *shrug*

I do. If nothing else it will be different than what's available now, including EVE Online. Although this may change after Jumpgate Evolution releases.

Ah. Well there's also an episode of TNG where Baldy and co. stumble upon an old Federation ship with Scotty aboard. They defrost him, and Geordi remonstrates with the old fibber for grossly exaggerating his repair estimates.

Uhh. I think you mean the one where they found him stored inside the transporter memory. He stuck himself there to save his butt. I remember that one well because I thought it was cool they had Scotty on it heh. That was looooooooong ago when I saw that.

Yeah the shit used in some installers is just obscene. When installing something from a DVD takes ten times as long as copying the whole DVD to your drive, the developer has gone a bit nuts with the install process.

Stuff like that can be caused by the physical copy protection on the disc. Older drives have problems telling the difference between marked, and bad sectors. So not a huge surprise. Same reason why some newer DVD-Combo and DVD drives have issues with older CDR/CD media, even tho it's supposed to be backwards compatible with the old standards.

I usually keep a standalone CD drive around for just such occasions.

The spec's are similar to Champions Online, but the space game is vastly smoother on high settings, and the one ground combat mission I did with alot of objects (Vulcan retreat, forest setting, heavy foliage and looked amazing), was very smooth at the same settings.

Visually in space the game looks amazing. Granted in a few released screen shots of ships up close you really can see the ship details (deck plates similar to the aztec pattern on federation ships, but you never really get close enough to see them in combat).
Ground wise... I have seen a few ship interiors, and they are decent, but nothing to write home about.

Biggest issue is I just don't see them having the game 'done' to be released in Feb. And I REALLY don't want this game to ship with obvious issues like Champions Online (Canada Map having a huge hole in it).

if we install this game "by the book" hours would seem like days.

I installed Mass Effect on my old DVD-ROM last year, and it literally took ~ 3 hours to install. Reinstalled it this year with a new DVD-ROM and it took maybe 10 minutes.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Actually I think it was from one of the films. Kirk has an epiphany about Scotty's repair estimates.

I remember that episode. Doesn't Scotty burn up on re-entry to a Dyson Sphere or something like that? Oh, the irony.

I think it's odd that they list a 6X DVD-ROM, what difference does it make how fast the drive is?

It has to do with the compression technology used, I believe. If the drive isn't fast enough, the compression (or rather, the uncompression) slows down to an absolute fucking crawl.

I installed Mass Effect on my old DVD-ROM last year, and it literally took ~ 3 hours to install. Reinstalled it this year with a new DVD-ROM and it took maybe 10 minutes.

So I think they're just saying that to avoid complaints from people who say it takes too long to install. But who knows.

It's all fun until you realize your character has a red top on.

Post-TNG era. Gold and blue uniforms are the ones who die.
