A little birdie tells me that all cracks out are fake. Are you thinking of the HATRED one? Do an md5sum on it and then check the .exe that came with the demo. For extra humor see what is said about demos in the nfo (and note all the other mistakes).

PS I've already called the SPA about the damn little birdie.

75. regarding steam Aug 22, 2007, 19:04 skyguy
 

I just purchased Bioshock off of steam... almost immediately I got a pop-up saying steam was updating itself. I look at what's changed and it says:
"Aug 22 - fix for Bioshock uninstall/reinstall issue"

So hopefully that means that steam will be free of this bullshit.

News Comments > Armed Assault 2 Announced
5. Re: ArmA 2 Aug 22, 2007, 12:40 skyguy
 
So, I really like realistic military games. I played Hidden and Dangerous 1 and 2 several times through back in the day. Armed Assault seemed to fit that niche so I tried it out. Now, I don't mind total realism, one shot one kill gameplay. But even considering that, Armed Assault just seemed WAY too hard.

I got through the first mission without getting killed after a couple of tries. Then I get to the second mission, with two optional missions.

The first optional mission is to go out, as a lone sniper, to kill an entire platoon of enemy troops single handed.

The second optional mission is to go behind enemy lines, once again all by yourself, to blow up about a half dozen enemy tanks single handed.

Now its one thing if this were Quake or something, and I were able to mow down rows of enemies while shrugging off my own wounds. But its not -- the missions are just as impossible as they would be in real life. They are suicide missions. In the second mission of the game.

I really like the idea of Armed Assault, but its missions seemed literally impossible so I just gave up.

123. radeon 9700 and laziness Aug 21, 2007, 21:38 skyguy
 
Hey guys,

sorry I'm too lazy to read through the 100 something posts. I'm just curious, so since Bioshock doesn't support shading model whatever, I won't be able to run it at all on my ye olde radeon 9700? Even with the ATI "bioshock drivers," which support my 9700?

This is my experience with Shaw's (a New England supermarket) as well. After the initial pet food scare, signs were put on the shelves with Shaw's brand pet food saying that they were not affected by the pet food poisoning. Then, a couple of weeks later, all of the Shaw's brand food had disappeared from the shelves. It seemed to last a while, too... I don't go there very often but I went twice in one month and both times the food wasn't on the shelves.

No problem! But DAMN, I didn't mean to be the main distribution point for this file. I've had to take it down before this switch catches fire. Please have someone who has already downloaded it make a torrent. And next time, please don't tell all of Eastern Europe about my links.

If they just released a new version that is being supported, its not abandonware.

Sometimes the "latest and greatest" is crap. Case in point: Sid Meier's Pirates. They came out with a brand new super-duper directx-9 version a couple of years ago... it was the worst thing that Sid Meier has ever done. Go look at the forums, they're nearly totally dead, and the only mods that exist are minor graphics modifications. In the meantime, I'm having an absolute blast playing the original Pirates under Pocket Commodore 64 on my PDA.

I'm sure you die-hard AMD fanbois are probably going to foam at the mouth and throw out some stats and quake-test graphs. Whatever...


Naw I still have my old Celeron 350 OC'ed to 450 running as a mail server heck it been all most ten years now!!

And I have a 1400mhz Athlon-XP OC'ed to 1800mhz, running as a file server, and heck its been going for 5 years now.

I'm also looking into sub-$1000 laptops... I'd love a core 2 duo but all of the sub-$1000 ones I can find come with Intel graphics. I'd rather take the AMD turion (or whatever the hell its called) with an Nvidia geforce chip in it, thanks.

Wow I gotta go wipe this foam off of my mouth....

Sex is so strange. I never meet anyone who would want to have sex with their daughter or sister. It's "intolerable!" "Never!" "I'd be ashamed!"

But then everyone loves sex anyway. I'm starting to think our love for sex is just one of those things that make us all into hypocritical/inconsistent bastards.

2. Re: Hellgate hesitance Jul 31, 2007, 22:04 skyguy
 

OK, I've been reading about Hellgate, and its got me hungry for another vamp:bloodlines style game. I know it can't be as good, but it being an fps style rpg with level-ups and cool weapons makes it seem like it may be in the same class as vamp. Maybe I'm wrong though since I know so little about the genre... bloodlines is the first rpg I've actually had the desire to play all the way through, and boy did I enjoy it. I think I may buy Hellgate when it comes out just 'cause it reminds me of it.

Oh, but hell no to paying for multiplayer or new items or whatever. They'll have to be happy with the $50 I pay them for the box with the CD and 5 page manual in it.

"None of the games on Steam (AFAIK) run on Linux."

Defcon has a native Linux port.
