Luka,
I know it won't be easy because I've been to such a company!

Its not possible to ask programmers to stop using the net, simple as that. And if your best solution is to get everybody off the net I suggest you re-evaluate.

go use a designated PC.

Yeah right, take the easy way out.

What about online help, collaborating with outsiders, consulting sdk documentation, downloading open source projects, using different online tools, google, deja, irc buddies (yes, from time to time you get the mind blundering c++ inheritence of dual precision to float question you just can't handle without in depth x86 assembler knowledge...) and whats not.

So? instead of using some good firewall with statefull packet sniffing and *knowing* all you get in and out of your dmz is port 80 http requests and *thats it* you suggest a different thing, having a designated PC.

Great. and what happens when you need to send some actual code to someone you trust? we are talking about f234ing email here, the bread and butter of the industry, not some off world service like skype beta...

And Carmack never got h4x0r3d

... eh.. Sorry, but carmack got haxored more times than he'd like to count...

All the doom games. All the quake games. Couple of tests and beta's, levels and what-nots. But it's not Carmack vs Gabe here, it's the principal: If microsoft can't sell products (it's a f34#$king email client for god sakes!!) I don't think they should sell anything, and I also think valve has a good case against Microsoft (Assuming they kept all other doors guarded...).

So? Now when you close your eyes you don't see Doom (got puzzled by the source engine) or HL2 (got screwed over by some script kiddies), what about Duke? - oh, that one is not going to see the light of day, not in the near future anyway, So basically there is no good FPS out there to play with.

183. Maybe the community is mature enough ? Oct 3, 2003, 05:10 shul
 
This is going to look like a trol, but bare with me...

I don't think this has to be such a fatal blow to HL2, I don't think we, as gamers, are being screwed here.
Why? because having the source code isn't going to change anything.
The source code being out there only means more people will be able to look at the cause of the problem (when such a cheat/hack/bug will be in existence), nothing more. This means that the community will be able to remedy situations before valve does (not that they didn't do a great job with HL1, but having a cheat/bug without any ability to solve it is pretty frustrating for anyone with C knowledge),
So - it will be transparent. copyright laws and the "changing code any hour, any day, any second" scheme of valve (if it will work) will be enough from stealing the important, break-through stuff in HL2, and all the rest is already open source so why bother?

I think that as a whole , unjustifiably as it is, this will be a good step for the community, not something which will ruin it.

The only thing which worries me is what will come of valve after all of this, a company which obviously should not have been the target of such an attack. I hope they will gather up the pieces and understand that this is not the end of the world as they know it.

7. This can be either very good or very bad Oct 2, 2003, 14:04 shul
 
... and I opt for very bad...

Usually interactive gaming world and non interactive TV have hard time combining (and don't sell me the 1-800 numbers trick, it will not work)...

A show with a chance of working will be internet based, in which the audience is part of the expirience...

144. Loss Sep 20, 2003, 02:12 shul
 
Stephan, I want to convey my deepest sympathies and my condolences for your loss - I hope you will see this through with the knowledge that life should and will keep on.

As one which met loss in several occasions I want you to know that sometimes (especially when the person dying is close to you) the best way in the first days is to keep on doing the stuff you always do, returning to normal for part of the day. Keep in mind that the full weight of what has happened will fall upon you and try to manage your time is such a way that when it does someone will be there, or, if you prefer it that way (like I do) - a warm, familiar surrounding and a lot of silence...

Stay strong,

shul

It's OK blue, doesn't really amount to much of the irritation you think it is,

Get some sleep, I am sure this ad thing is not going to change anybody's view of the site

Is there some "top list" of mods worth playing somewhere?

... Just bought the game the other day, downloaded the (1.2+GB) linux client and reading the (pretty big) manual.

See dude, the implication there is that the game was not shaping up well, so they canned it. I assure you it's not to spite the consumers.

Give me sucky full throttle any day. LucasArts just ruined my day

Edit: wtf??

40. looks like a great demo Aug 7, 2003, 17:51 shul
 
short. concise. brilliant.

got a GPF while playing... I wonder if that will be taken care of before the game is out... something to do with the rendered of unreal warfare engine...

but really a good demo.

Shul, stop feeding the troll. He's not asking a question, he's just being his normal no life, no friends idiotic self, only this time he managed to find the question mark key. It's still trolling.

Well, I don't know...

btw, why do you talk about ATI and not Nvidia (except the Geforce comment) - no go with nvidia ?
