FUCK YOU EA

Your lack of support for cnc generals and cnc generals: zero hour can kiss my white, hairy ass.

You let your stats server get hacked . . .
Or do you still blame that on gamespy, either way YOU NEVER FESSED UP TO IT.

Your support for the community is appaling. The community had to create aceton which wasn't even acknowledge by EA here in the states, EA Europe acknowledged it.

By not releasing an ad campaign or posting it on your webpage only goes to show that you are going to half ass the rest of the cnc universe and let the IP die out slowly and silently.

And someone correct me if i'm not mistaken, but isn't the Sage engine a revamp of the engine that westwood used for that 3d rts dune game?

Also I'll agree that cnc needs to get back to more gameplay stuff that TA had, yet still push the visual fold as well. Oh, and till you release a demo of your new game, there is no way in hell that I'd ever give you guys a dime for it. If you want to trump Blizzard's accomplishments, BUILD YOUR OWN INFRASTRUCTURE instead of letting gamepy do it for you.

Sorry to flame but "Oleg" just said he wasn't directly involved with Stalker... he's just a PR guy it seems... It's his job to get people psyched up over a game that's in development...

Which does not make him a developer. He needs to stfu till the game is done and ready to be purchased by I, my friends, and the rest of the gamers in the world. Or we won't buy it cuz all the shit he's been hyping about that we are interested in, is no longer in the game because of whatever reason. If stalker slips any more... OFP2 will be out... won't need to get stalker after that game...

yea, OFP was a great game... especially all the user made co op campaigns and what not.

yea, this might be fun if you are 10 yrs old, however this title isn't worth even 20 bucks.

the lack of collision detection in the game is pretty sad as far as MP goes. You can't ram anyone off course, and it looks like everyone is hovering through the course. There are no real lap races, it's the same mode changed up in about 3 different ways or so it seems in the demo. Also the editor in the demo doesn't even give you a taste of what you can do with the game. Stunt Racer was a much better game cuz at least you could ram the crap out of your car into another car and be prowd of the damage and destruction you've created there. unistalled!

yea, okay so After dicking with this thing for at least an hour I've found a few things.

to get the colonel out, jack the german supply truck that they leave right away near the front of town. bring that truck back to the wounded guy and ta da, he's rescued

a lack of save in this demo pisses me off considereing all the stuff you have to do, and all the "intuitive learning" that you have to do on your own.

Okay, for those having problems with ctd's host ur own game and see if it starts to make sure that it's not you having connection problems. If you are still having issues, put ur PC in the DMZ on ur router (obviously don't do this if you have anything personal and you are afraid of a hack attack from the neighbor's illegitimate child).

But things that need fixing:

Obviously connection issues.

Admin controls: the inability to boot someone with a really crappy mic that's bringin all kinds of feedback to the room is a big WTF WERE YOU THINKING UBI? Also a single lvl to play is okay, but not being able to set any different options for ur own server equals another WTF WERE YOU THINKING UBI?

Client controls/Options/Settings:
Mouse is way to slow, have to manually input mouse speed, something that all n00bs are sure to know how to do(hahaha, n00bs know how to do something... good times!).

Still trying to figure out why apostrophes ( ' ) bring up a friggin chat log even though in the .ini files there doesn't appear to be anything that shows that key binded in such a way, nor does it appear to be a way to unbind it. Oh yea... a lot of the commands appear to be in a different language(French maybe?) I don't feel that should be accepted given it is an English demo.

Your microphone should not be on 24/7, there should be a PTT assignment for it as to avoid the heavy breathing of some child molestor or really big fat person that has just run to the fridge to grab some leftovers and is now trying to catch his breath(fatty mcgee anyone?).

As for those that have witnessed lag, I guess I'm fortunate enough to have not - graphic slowdowns... yes. But i just drop the quality and it seems to fix it. Though I'm running at 1280 and i swear is looks like 1024 or lower with all the aliasing(note that I'm not running any AA). It only appears at the beginning of the lvl when I'm a spy anyways with that lighting effect coming down through the grating of the sewer.

Balance: LEAVE IT! All of you that are complaining about the mercs are too powerful or the spies need weapons. HUSH CHILDREN! Play as mercs to learn the lvl, you have the best chance of surviving and possibly winning. Only good or superior sons and daughters of gods should be allowed to play as spies.

Which brings me to my last and I believe final issue. RTFM does not pertain to this demo cuz IT CAME WITH THE WORST DOCUMENTATION EVER!

PiSS POOR!!!

Playing the MP demo is like playing a totally different game from the SP demo, oh but that's because they are too different games. So why does Ubi expect that people should be able to know that when they jump right into it, even after reading their cute little worthless readme.txt file?

One doesn't necessarily need a full walkthrough for a given demo, but a full outline of the weapons and how to use/equip them properly. Oh wait, the budget of the game was used up so we'll just let the community do it for the game for free, and then we'll charge them wutever gamespot charges per month to read them off their website only... yea... okay!

Anyways, those are my biggest issues concerning online play....oh wait forgot one more...

UBI ONLINE BLOWS GOATS!

The lack of proper communication to setup a game, or the fact that once a game fills up it is taken off the server list even if it empties out a little. The inability to filter servers on a name/ping/number of players basis. Yea that all really sucks ass IMHO.


and to put it in the words of mike myers.... i'm spent (if he wasn't the first to say that, eh... my bad). I hope that you've enjoyed my rant, and I apologize for any errors in grammar/spelling. Feel free to flame and accuse me of whatever sexual favors you enjoy in your own dreams, but i'll probably be that asshole that keeps tazing you in this demo that is still enjoyable though deeply flawed and seriously rushed. Tsk Tsk!

laff anyone having an issue with the " ' " key?? yea, that's right the apostrophe key. whenever i press it in game it brings up a log of all the team chat

which is all well and good if you ever wanna see wut nekkid chick u and ur friends were talking about during the last game, but it is annoying as hell when u are trying to talk and BLOOP it pops up...

can't seem to find wut it is called in the .ini file. oh well hope someone else is bothered by this. laters

hehe... apparently you need to have the correct cd in for whatever map you are playing, whether it's bf, rtr, or the new sw.

hmmm... restart daemon tools and disc dump, or just reinstall and not upgrade... ooh, that's gonna be a tough one... hmmmm what would take longer...

off to find out... FAWK!!!

hehe yea, i love those fucked up spots on the carrier...

however on the last part. Air pilots should not be stripped. Instead ONLY engineers should be allowed to pilot any vehicle other than the jeeps (force the lamers to repair the carriers and stuff)

Now this shouldn't be forced on everyone, but instead a setting that could be set by admins. And it doesn't have to be engineers for everything cept jeep. I mean they could have a checklist for what an vehicles an engineer is able to drive and no other class. Click all the boxes, and TADA!!! only engies can drive/fly. Just a nice choice of options for a more serious admin setup.

my two bits

P.S. Patch fuxed something up for me. I can't change my video settings. Prior to the patch i was at 1024x768x32 with all options jacked up. Post patch i'm stuck at 800x600x32 with all options jacked up. I try and change the rez and it says "failed to save options"

Any ideas anyone?
specs:
p4 1.4
384 RDRAM
visiontek geforce 3(1st generation) latest drivers for Win98SE
Obviously win98se is the OS

thanks beforehand

P.S.S. not gonna get a new vid card just yet. I'll wait till it's actually required to get the full effect of a game (ie doom 3) and by then something new will be out and forced the 9700 and nv30 to be much cheaper

learned my lesson when i got my geforce3 - $400 that could've been spent on other things. But if u got the cash, more power to ya to get the latest and greatest, just make sure u get another chair near ur puter, cuz i'm gonna wanna check that shit out!

RTCW vs MOH (according to gspy)

hehe
okay so now that the moh demo is out, and ppl have figured out tweaks for it (blood puff and team play)
all the ppl that dl'd it over the weekend and hated it said that everyone would stop playing moh and everyone would go back to rtcw

GheySpyArcade (about 4pm cst)
# of ppl in rooms:
MOHdemo: about 2050
RTCW: 350

so now that the kiddies are all home from school and they've been able to download, even after seein all the bitching that ppl have posted everywhere or bitched about in channels the number of ppl playing moh has gone up from the 1000 or so from this past weekend.
Now now i know that just because there's that many ppl there doesn't mean they are all playing. Probably half that number is flamers bitching about some piddly ass thing. But even if it were that true, that means there's still more than twice that many ppl playing just a demo(and not a complete demo at that) instead of playing a full game. Of course we can double check that number after christmas when all the kiddies find their copies of rtcw under the christmas tree. But i doubt it the number of ppl in rtcw will get even close to the number of ppl playing mohdemo(which could be of course because no one wants to just drop 50 bucks on another q3 shooter)

takes you a clip to kill someone with an smg??? damn...

first thing, don't go full auto, that's where you are messin up. Do 3 or 4 round bursts. usually only takes me 5 or 7 chest shots (or 5-7 bullets) to take out someone. tap tap tapparooo

laff
you don't play cs much
there is many a time when you head shot someone and they don't die in one shot(and end up with 1-16 health) just like in moh where if you don't get bodyshot on someone they are down to 2-10 and in CS you don't get wounded, it's the same health point system...

dod has a more realistic health system than moh or cs, but it's not the realism that you get out of a r6 game or OFP, but it's more true to the point of headshots as well as anti personal explosives, which is the only thing decent about DoD. HE grenades are so unregular in the amount of damage done to a player in cs that it's pretty pathetic...
Nades in dod are much more realistic, toss it in a room, no one is walkin out, or they are seriously fubared... a nade in cs does anyhere from 25-75 damage if someone to stand right on top of it, regardless of what armor they had on.

so phooey on that. but the atmosphere that is shown in moh, in a round based game (mixed with some kind of objective) is the same as CS. As for the ballistics, i have no problems leading off someone in moh. Headshots seem to be much more effective than a body shot. If you want a good ballistic system go play OFP. You want headshots, and timing of a shot, mixed with a little wind/gravity or if you've been wounded already, go play ofp. But for a comparison of how this is like cs in ww2 they have a lot of similarities. Besides the game is a matter of personal opinion now. And if you've ever taken a speech class or a debate class. It is virtually impossible to change a personal opinion. Even if you have facts that support you, there's very little you can do. So keep bitching about whatever, i'll still get my kicks out of the game.
