"new version optimizes campaign saves"

Wow, it sure did. All my autosaves and manual saves disappeared, so all progress in the game is now gone. But hey, I still can see my achievements. :-(

I'll take aid from any god who cares to give it, Pagan or otherwise!

Fyi, the whole knocking on wood thing originates from back in the days where people were still worshipping pagan gods. Knocking on wood was their way of asking the treegods for aid. If you didn't already know it, there you go Since most people do it, you can from now on be that smart-ass telling them what it means! It has good reception with my surroundings so I felt like hitting the off-topic to share it with ye ^^

What happened to Blizzards multiplayer spawns?

They have become a publishers pawn like most devs.

Yeah, well -- like I said I do check every now and then. Actually, I would keep virus software on my PC, but frankly it seems to get in the way so much I just can't stand it.

22. Prime Issue with SC2 Jul 31, 2010, 11:47 eRe4s3r
 
Is the map limitations - 20mb and 5 maps limit (with 10mb max per map - until you hit the 20mb limit) per account, or you have to pay 80$ to "unlock" it.

The only way to play custom maps which you can get via the internet is via an (illegal?) loader.

So yeah Blizzard is definitely the epitome of PC Making.. they fit right in with Activision.

And if you don't get what this means - the average TD map is 8mb

The issue (for me)isn't with the fact that most people don't have an always-on internet connection, the issue is that that internet connection simply ISN'T always on. Mine flakes out on me on occasion, and it sometimes takes them two or three days to fix it. (When another lightning bolt has fried one of their AP towers.)

Circumstances beyond my control should NOT fucking dictate when I can play the single player game I paid for. If my connection is up and running, I'm fine if it checks with the server to see if I'm legit. When that connection is NOT up and running, the game in question shouldn't be a fucking cunt and then IMMEDIATELY assume that I must have pirated it, and therefore not run.

Is there seriously anyone that can't understand this simple principle? If so, I can't wait until YOUR internet connection goes down for a few days. Make sure to sit there all smug and defend the dev whose game you're now unable to play in single player.

It's the difference between there being a network connection available, and traffic being sent over the network connection. The difference between the game deciding what to do or leaving the decisions up to me. My bitch is with the idea of, "Why do I need to open a network connection to anywhere to play my single player game?" I should be able to say, "I'm just playing single player. Don't talk to the server unless I tell you to." That goes for patches also. I'm sure you'll think I'm brain damaged for this too, but if I want the game to check for updates, I'll TELL it to check for updates.

And before you ask -- No, I don't have auto updates turned on for my Windows OS, my browser, my virus software, or any other software. Actually, I only occasionally have virus software, in almost 20 years of owning a PC I've never had a virus on my PC (knock on wood). I download free trials once a year or so, just to double check. Nothing yet...

Assassin's Creed 2 is worth $10.00 imo. $60.00 is indeed too much for Starcraft 2 though. I loved the beta, but I'm definitely waiting for the 50% discount. $30.00 sounds fair.

Haha. Including beta key and a new rig I've paid more than $1000 for SC2 and it was worth every cent.

I just took the plunge last night and ordered a new computer. The q6600 I've had for the last 3 years worked great, but once the 8800 GTX died a couple of months ago, I've been limping along with an ATI 5400. And while it does the best it can (great budget card!), it's a stopgap, at best.

Running SC2 at the next to lowest settings, and increasingly seeing games where I'd say "I guess I'll try it on the 360 instead" was too much...

lol, probably DITTO on that. I literally built my new rig about a year ago or so, JUST to play SC2 and next in line Diablo 3. Blizzard seriously is one of the only gaming companies left that when they make a game, it's loaded with polish and quality. Sure, your gonna get a bug or balance issues after release, but cmon? What games don't? I appreciate Blizzard's long lasting support to their older games even when they don't need to. It shows they are committed to their games.

Really beside the point. Can't think of any scenario where one might not have access to the Internet (broadband or not) yet maybe want to play their current favorite game?

Hmm.. I bet the 7 people with a 7.1 system are happy with this release. What about the thousands of others who have them rig overheating?

Yeah the game is fantastic. SP is really great. I haven't even touched MP. It's a must buy if you liked SC even a little bit. And I never buy $60 pc games but I got the kmart deal so I was happy.

Why isn't there a remake of Westworld?

Anyone know what the save thing actually did? Are they syncing it now between offline and battle.net ?

Read elsewhere that SC2 is having issues with the menu systems causing video cards to overheat because it's not limiting the rendering of the menus....something like that. So they have some command line stuff they want you to stick in a config file to stop this from happening...Im guessing if it can fry a card it can cause a system to blue screen as well. Saw pictures of a guys video card with scorch marks on it from playing SC2.

Awesome.

Editing: Read further down on blues and saw that it's covered here with lots of comments....so Im guessing it's been seen by those posting here but just in case. It is burning people's video cards up.
Only if they have inadequete cooling. Its not like the nvidia driver problem which locked the fan down to slow so it could NOT cool it, and the cards burned. What this does is load the card up to 100%. If someone is worried about this, blow out the dust in the card and perhaps grab a temp monitor. Mondern graphics cards can get SERIOUSLY hot during normal load operating temps. Like 80 or 90 C. But if thats the normal range, they are generally designed to handle that amount of heat.
