The song playing is actualy a loop taken from one of the very first HL2 teasers that plays the song out more completely. It's very dark and moody and fits perfectly with the music from older HL 1 trailers (HL: Opposing Force trailer had the best).

I remember my first time through the campaign, taking out a Russian base and spotting a Hind flying in. I look over and see a Russian tank and think, 'I wonder if I can climb in that and shoot the Hind down with the main cannon?' ....yup.

Still play it off and on to this day with the sweet ass ECP addon. The PMC Fury campaign is 200 missions of utterly awesome combat. The skills I picked up in that are helping me get through FarCry on realistic lol.

I had that exact same problem. I fixed it by installing the drivers + THE MEDIA CENTER from my Audigy 2 driver disc. With just the drivers the windows method of setting the speakers through the control pannel wouldn't cut it.

The problem with BF:V is the engine. The original had bad sound problems at first as well.

FC is working fine for me, but I'm using headphones for it.

I had a problem where I couldn't get EAX sound out of anything other then me left and right speakers, then I figured out it was my own fault for misconfiguring my settings. Other then that I've never had any problem with any creative card right up to my Audigy 2.

My CPU is ready to play the above, don't think it'll take a couple of years either. Not to mention it WAY outperforms the 2.2 ghz intel I upgraded from.

FarCry uses a 100% custom physics engine done by the same people making the game.

You can change the render mode in FarCry easily. Just go to the page I posted in my last post.

Farcry works great on my 9800 pro with 4.1 omega drivers. The corrupted graphics occur when you have FSAA turned on. You have to set both FSAA and AF to "application preference" in order for it to run.

You can find all the tweaks you need including how to get AF on in game here...

I suggest turning the glare on and playing in "Paradise" render mode. Makes the game look even better.

Also I've heard that Ad Aware can screw your system with how it removes some spyware. It does a poor job of removing them then and causes system instability. Can't prove it, but I was told by several people.

Has it been 9 years? If so lets check this out... 52 weeks a year, I'll take out 2 weeks for mandatory vacation time (Christmass vacation, etc) that's 50 x 5 = 250 work days per year. 250 x 8 = 2000 work hours x 9 = 18,000 hours in development total, which is 750 straight days worth of time the game should have, roughly speaking, been worked on. That's the equivelant of a *team* of people working on a game for 2 years of their lives straight with no sleep or breaks. What the hell takes that long to make?!??

Look at J.C. he looks ahead where he thinks technology should be at by the time he's finished and shoots for that and gets the game done. I don't know what this team is trying for but it's just sad to think anything could take this long to reach a publishable state.

Everyone can probably predict that what they've done is constantly revised or replaced existing content for their game (unless this game takes like 900 hours to complete), but all of that can be done by sticking to their existing content, releasing then move onto an expansion or sequal. So what's the problem? Is it some need to not be one-up'ed by anyone elses technology? 'We can't release now because X game looks / sounds / plays better then ours?' That's just sad. Swallow your pride and have faith in your fan base (though it's pretty much too late for that).

Depends on who's story you read. Several sights (VE3D for one) did say 'press only' and said that anyone stating it's a public release was incorrect.

The public would get it when HL2 is released (or when it leaked).

The one trailer they have has no HL2 footage in at all... WTF?!?? God I hope this isn't a sign that valve is considering just redoing the entire game like they did with the first one...

The chanting 3 times thing is from the old VE forums where he would post on just about any thread relating to him (until AndyB banned him). So the joke was he showed up around the third time his name was chanted just like that movie.

The reference in the Desktop Commander vid isn't where it originated.

"Can anybody add anything else to the list ?"

Gratz. That is quite possibly the biggest can of worms anyone has ever opened in a forum.
