This is excellent news,with this and GTA IV i think it would be a great gaming new year,i hope. The only bummer is that we all know that development schedules are prone to slippage,hence no concrete information about a possible release period.

I just recently changed my cpu from an AMD Xp 1900+ to a P4 2.4c O/C to 3.0 running on dual channel DDR,and using a FX 5900. I thought of playing Vice City again and fired it up with 8xAA/8xAF using the latest 53.03 dets thinking that if i had previously played it with the same video card on a 1900+ with the same AA/AF settings & running it as smoothly as a baby's bottom,then logically it shouldn't be a ploblem with a P4 3.0.

Boy was i in for a shock for the frame rates often dip below 20s especially if there was tire smoke or fog and even on good clear weather the gameplay was jerky.

I've tried reinstalling video drivers,the game itself and nada no dice. Other much more graphically intensive games like DX2:IW/COD/KOTOR etc are prefectly fine.
I need some help for i am truly stymied by this weird behavior. GTA:VC hates Intel cpus?

Thanks!

Holy mackerel! Driv3r looks like GTA having Max Payne 2 graphics. Look at that crumple on the vehicle impact. I think damage modeling might be excellent judging from that screenshot.

I suspect that my bed has em too,because recently i am waking up finding welts with red inflammation around them,accompanied with spots of subdermal bleeding near the area of the bite site,due to unconsious scratching i suppose. It's strange because my room is far from dirty & i clean it regularly.

Those welts can last up to a day,and is pretty prominent compared to mosquito bites which fade away rather quickly.

Btw,i don't think i can continue sleeping after a spider bite. Even small spiders can inflict a painful puncture.

The 4.50 seems to be pulled from the VIA website.

It does not have as much exposure as COD or MOH but in my opinion it's one of the more noteworthy FPS of this year. And i love shooting using iron sights,glad more games are following this trend.

Hmmm ironic considering that the RVS website is plastered with ATI ads and ATI sponsering mapping competitions. But then anything could happen with UBI Soft.....

I was quite interested in this game initially,just to get a bit of that GTA style gaming,even if it is a rather poor one.
Guess replaying Mafia for the 4th or 5th time might be a better choice.

Q4 2004 for GTA4? And only the console version first if i remember correctly....

They will take like 4 to 5 mths to come out with a PC version.....

ARGHH it hurts my head just thinking about it.....

It's clearly a frickin flagrant sign of lack of frickin QA especially when the frickin game contains a game-frickin- stopping bug in the frickin tutorial level,the 1st frickin mission that you have to frickin play!

What the hell is with these patches without a fix list?!
They're waiting for gamers to write that out for them?
Why release such a "secretive" patch?
Can't fathom what they're thinking.......

Hmmm sleep seems like a scarce commodity in game development! Enjoy your sleep and thanks for dropping in!

I hope that this game will make sleep a scarce thing too!

With the amount of effort spent in making this game,to screw up the flight physics would be a nefarious sin,especially as it was pushed as a "serious" flight sim.

I doubt with Flanker's pedigree would the devs screw up something as fundemental as the physics,bugs most probably yes,as most flight sims are notoriously buggy and hard to QA..but hey the verdict's not in yet. Hopefully my "i got a good feeling about this" is not unfounded.

Here's to hoping!

If you had a choice between LO:MAC & Falcon 4 Gold,and you could only choose one,which one will you choose?

For me i had already played the old Falcon 4 through it's many patches.(Yeah it was a buggy game) I think i will pass this one this time. I'm not sure the addition of new graphics and a few aircraft will justify the purchase. The gfx,esp the ground textures look dated compared to LO:MAC.
Futhermore i do not have to wait for months when the release of LO:MAC is set on mid November. But i really loved the manuals of all the Falcon series. Those things could really do some hurt when being thrown

Please don't screw FO3 up!
I rather it wasn't released than to have something like Ultima IX or UFO:Aftermath.
Or even better still transfer the development back to the original creators.

Me almost swears that their drivers are named in such a way as to confuse & piss people off. Why just they can't name their drivers & updates in versions or dates instead of cryptic shit like EAX4_Drv0234803_P43.exe. Or even better still follow the unified driver system used by Nvidia or ATI....(yeah right)

And regarding the packages,the wiseguys at Creative just can't include a downloadable SurroundMixer when it is one of the must important utilities for a user. I had to pluck one off from my LAN where another user is using a Live! soundcard.

I don't trust their automatic updates ala MS Windows Update....i'd rather download things myself.

Their driver team must be a very relaxed bunch. Getting one driver update a year is very lucky. In fact one of the main reasons i updated to Win XP is because drivers for the Win9X family are no longer forthcoming.......

Creative are u listening? Stop acting like a bloated whale and get off your ass because no matter how great EAX is or how many features u pack into your hardware in the end it all boils down to the drivers!

On a positive note the problems i had with intermittent sound in H&D2 is gone.
