News Comments > Left 4 Dead Early Access Today
53. Re: Left 4 Dead Early Access Today Nov 6, 2008, 15:29 maddog
 
Similar to what Mechanik (sorry for spelling) outlined below, great summary btw, I wish ammo was hard to come by. I don't like that the pistol has unlimited ammo. I wish that ammo was in boxes and such and hidden around the map. There are lots of little areas to explore, closets, rooms, bathrooms etc that they could hide ammo in and make it worthwhile to explore more.

I wish there melee weapons like baseball bats, crowbars and even the occasional chainsaw. Would make it nice to balance out the loss of ammo for one of your weapons.

Really enjoying the demo. Everyone is hovering around my PC at work as I blast zombies. Fast pace and furious fun. Normal level seems fairly easy.

No crashes at all but I have only played SP. Looking forward to some coop LAN action.

Hmm, not really seeing that. I dumped BF2 for QW and love every minute of it.

It's even better when a buddy and I want to play some LAN coop against some bots.

Nice to hear the team is working on a patch and actively working with Nvidia to increase performance.

I wish we could get COOP with this patch or perhaps MP bots but I realize that is moot by now.

All in all, I have been very happy with Crytek and this release. Too bad I can't say the same about Epic and their seemingly disastrous Gears of War release.

13. What Hellgate should've been... Nov 9, 2007, 01:37 maddog
 
This is what hellgate should have been like. Fast moving, sorta like Diablo, sorta like a FPS. Fast and furious.

"at least before the Anti Gears of War for windows media frenzy ramps up"

Ha ha, ain't it the truth. Today has been a nightmare for the GoW release on PC. I was going to pick it up but the Epic forums look like the 2K fourms after their activation debacle. It's an absolute clusterF and there's not a dev or PR person in sight to shed light on the problem. To be fair, the problem looks to be more GFW than GoW.

Let's hope Epic's UT3 release next week goes ALOT smoother.

Jess,

Thanks man! I will check out the Crymod site and try to find it. I been lurking there for a few days now just trying to follow the coop process.

One last question, what gamemode were you playing with those AI guys on that MP level?

Thanks again! Just about 1 week until Crysis. Nice to see new SP maps being released already.

Joss, I know it's off topic but I am intrigued by you were able to get AI into the Crysis multiplayer levels. I've been trying and looking everyone on how it can be done.

Can you do me a favor and perhaps shoot me a PM on how to do it, or where I can find out how to do it?

Thanks,

PCLL

Damn Paulp, why don't you take that anger and join the marines or something. I heard they need bodies (triggerpullers)

Who knows, you might be knocked off and help the US gene pool along the way.

News Comments > Battlefield 2 Beta Patch
6. Initial thoughts... Jul 5, 2006, 18:43 maddog
 
The reports from the forums at totalbf2 are mixed. No reports of bad crashing or instabilities. The new map looks pretty nice. It's an urban style map with comparisons to Karkland sure to take place.

The fix list looks good but fails to mention some bot AI problems that have been found in the 1.3 AI.DLL. Hopefully that has been worked out.

The readme also has a very helpful how-to on how to make a copy of your BF2 install and patch only that copy and not your main game. Thats a nice touch.

DICE has taken so much well deserved flak lately that I believe this to be a very good move.

47. Re: Bots etc Nov 21, 2005, 22:23 maddog
 
Nin,

I have read over at "Battlefield SinglePlayer" that the DICE team is to release the AI tools after the release of this expansion.

That was from one of the Forgotten Hope mod guys. My buddies and I like LAN play against bots when we have free time at work so hopefully this is true.

You might have already tried it but the WCC Coop\SP mod, found over at wccsquad.com is pretty nice. They are set to release a new version this week that has a Comanche and Little Bird helo's. As well as some new land vehicles.

I read this book when I was a youngster. It was a great book. I still find myself thumbing through it everynow and then. I think you might have to be in your thirties to be familiar with the story. I hope the game and subsequent movie do the book justice.

Lol, BF2 has since been uninstalled in anticipation of this game. I enjoyed the first SWBF so let's hope it lives up to the expectations.

I hope they increased the flyable areas on the ground based maps. I made myself dizzy flying back and forth for strafing runs.

Yeah, I don't know what MacD is talking about. Perhaps he is getting the jumpjets confused with the weapon the jump trooper carried. It was a two shot weapon and after about three clips, you had to get reloaded.

Hmm, I don't remember being limited to just three uses. I know that they had a limited use in that the "energy" bar would deplete after a few seconds but it would then regenerate.

22. Re: Cool Oct 22, 2005, 10:53 maddog
 
While there might be thousands playing, there are also a proportional number of people who have quit from the game being sorely incomplete. Did you try that first patch? That was nice that even EA had to come out and say "dont install the patch", nice.

C'mon, I don't need to rehash the laundy list of problems but the fact is, no game is perfect. One guy might like it while ten others will hate it. We can go round and round about whether SWBF2 is going to be any good but in the end, it comes down to preference. I have a life outside of pecking away at this computer so online play is not that important for me. I, for one, am excited about the improved AI and COOP modes. A few of us like to play COOP at work so the improvements will be a welcome addition.

I think any company that tries to combine multiple genres into one game is going to have a hard time. Just look at the people who hate BF2's lame helicopter flight dynamics. Many say they were better in DC. Just as many say the space combat was better in X-Wing. I think we have to take everything with a grain of salt and play a game for entertainment.

That is the funniest damn thing I have read on these boards in a long time.

I dunno, seeing as Battlefield2 is barely playable and made even worse by subsequent patches, I welcome this game and will be surely picking it up when it's released.

I think we will see tremendous gameplay improvement from what was in the beta from what get's released. I enjoyed the first game and now look forward to the space battles and improved AI.

I hope the game can be modded as well and support for third party mods\maps\skins is encouraged.

News Comments > BF2 Community Update - ATI Demo Note
11. No blame on ATI Jun 10, 2005, 17:18 maddog
 
No way can you blame this one on ATI. They probably don't even have the game to test it out themselves. This is 100% EA or whomever. Test test test, which apparently they didn't with recent drivers.
