Just looked at some Doom 3 screenshots from a German mag... (links over at shacknews). Jeeze those guys don't pull any punches on the spoilers! Just a warning, you see bosses and some other stuff you might regret later (see, I got you curious now. But resist! Resist!!! lol)

DO you have the link for it handy? I can't find it at shacknews.

So when are they going to make a new Descent game? I think its about time for one

Or better yet a new Magic Carpet game. They could do wonders with it today. It was kickass back in 1994.

I really wish Lucas would stop messing around with the original movies. These are screens of two changes from the upcoming DVDs.

Glad Dwango went out of biz, they were way too fucking expensive..

Sorta Kinda. Dwango went to the web and was called dwangozone then microsoft took them over and turned them into their internet gaming zone.

After Dwango left all these crappy versions popped up. TEN, GameStorm, MPlayer, Engage and Heat remember those? Gamespy owns them all now.

Those were the days. Does anyone remember DWANGO?

Ah yes, the good-ol' days before Gamespy and the rest. I remember Dwango very well, you called in with your modem and it would be like a dos version of gamespy. Anyone remember Kali? That was like the first free gamespy type deal.

Turns out Dwango went to the web and was called DwangoZone and then Microsoft bought and gutted them and turned them into Microsoft Internet gaming zone.

41. Re: N.H. Troopers bag their limit Jul 26, 2004, 16:08 JoeCool
 
The shadow areas ran really, really well - come to me, Doom 3!

Shadows are what kill me and my 4600 Senior Citizen Card. SWG is the worst when it comes to shadows sincce EVERYthing casts some sort of shadow. When I have shadows on I get 13 fps average on SWG when I turn them off I get 30+ (don't know since SOE limits SWG FPS to only 30 for network latency reasons). Thats why I decided toget a new card for doom3, since that game uses shadows like crazy.

1. EQ Jul 26, 2004, 16:05 JoeCool
 
I hate to say it but Everquest's better days are behind it. The best expansion was Shadows of Luclin but once Planes of Power came out, that expansion pretty much started to kill everquest and the way it was designed. Once POP redesigned the EXP system and put out all that uber loot nobody felt the need to go to any of the other expansions and it made the game way too easy thus content go old very quickly not just for the hard-core player but for the average players too. Now SOE has to release a new expansion every 6 months just to keep people happy. Most of the expnaions arn't very good and they don't really add anything new just the same stuff with new graphics.

77. Re: Nvidia GF 6800 Jul 26, 2004, 15:53 JoeCool
 
If you like a hair dryer in your computer then use the 6800. It also takes up two slots at the back of the computer because of its large cooling system.

Thats only the ultras.

Hey Ray, how does this run on the 6800GT?
http://www.scene.org/file.php?file=/parties/2003/assembly03/in64/zoom3_v1_02_final.zip&fileinfo
On a 5900 it averaged around 25FPS, on a 9800XT around 30FPS.

And on ti4600 about 13

35. Re: Geforce 6800 GT Power Jul 26, 2004, 15:35 JoeCool
 
Should be fine, unless you have a junk PSU. Of course, if you have a junk PSU, anything could happen. Note that the GT will use less power than the Ultra as well.

http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NjE0


A good quality 350W power supply with a sufficient 12V rail pull can support the 6800 Ultra standard clocks of 400/550.
Suggesting you read that; noting it is for the Ultra,
Ray

Thats good to know then. I am just getting the GT so I don't think i'll have a problem then. Plus my Power Supply has a "Designed for P4" sticker on it so it must be good then.

Can anyone who has a Geforce 6800 GT tell me if a 350 Watt power supply is ok? I read something about needing to get a new power supply for the 6800's a while back.
