News Comments > OpenSource MMO FPS Announced
4. Re: nice Feb 26, 2003, 16:03 Efflixi
 
The graphics wont be a SWG killer for sure, but as most of us know, its the gameplay that makes a game last. Here's hoping this one makes it. I only have one concern. It takes a group of dedicated professionals to maintain ANY MMO game. How do they plan to do this? I understand the open source meaning patches and such will be no problem. But what about tech support? In game issues and such?

1. Not related to OotB but... Feb 25, 2003, 09:25 Efflixi
 
I have come here every day for the past 4-5 years. Love the site. However something odd just happened when i clicked my homepage button to get here. It said there was an ActiveX control trying to get information that my system wouldn't allow. (my security settings are rather high, plus i run NAV) I have NEVER had this window popup on this site in my 5 years of coming here. Is this a case of a misbehaving Ad?

*edit* Coming back here from multiple pages causes the same window to popup. On a side note, i live in Louisiana so the "Louisiana is sinking" story hit rather close to home. Fortunately i live smack dab in the middle of Baton Rouge and our soil is fairly solid around here. (If you can call ANY soil in Louisiana solid %))

29. Another game to try Feb 25, 2003, 05:47 Efflixi
 
http://www.enb.com

I find this game to be the best game i've ever played. It just strikes a nerve with me for some reason. It doesn't seem quite as complex as Freelancer (it doesn't have dynamic trade routes and such) but i think after reading up a bit on Freelancer that E&B is more fun.

1. Did I miss something here? Feb 16, 2003, 14:24 Efflixi
 
Isn't the purpose of an MMORPG to never end? People wouldn't still be playing Everquest 3 years later if it ended after 2 months. Sounds like they are shooting themsevles in the foot here.

"I read this as saying that Id's next all new game will require/get a brand new graphics engine. This will be effectively the first time since Quake."

I'm almost positive the Doom 3 engine is a 90% complete rewrite of code.

"BAh...
so what can you run...only free stuff from linux programmers?"

Actually using emulators you can usually run most anything. Yesterday i burned my first CD in Linux, went pretty good and everything worked well. I used a linux program called X-CD-Roast. Pretty nifty little program.

28. Best canned Chili Dec 13, 2002, 16:52 Efflixi
 
Seeing all these chili recipes makes me think of my abosulte favorite canned chili. Wolf's chili! Beats that hormel crap into the ground. Not quite as good as my mom's chili or Blues chili, but DAMNED good for canned chili.

2. Electro Ball Dec 10, 2002, 10:05 Efflixi
 
Recently i saw a computer case mod where a guy found one of these (at a target no less!) for $9.99 after Halloween and stuck it in the front of his case cover. Looked pretty bad ass especially since he already had blue cold cathode lights in his case and the Ball was red. Looked really cool being backlit by the cold cathode.

Basically he's saying it's not real and he just hopes he can recover the 10 Euro's it cost him to put it up on the list.

8. Re: Forget the popups... Oct 9, 2002, 09:51 Efflixi
 
"Is the Images of the Day real? I read the descriptions and decided not to go further. Maybe after I finish lunch."

Most of the pics are X-Rays and therefore not gruesome. The few real pics aren't that bad except the lady who picked a hole in her face with her fingernails.

3. Popup Ad Oct 9, 2002, 08:09 Efflixi
 
One of your ad's is misbehaving Blue... Seems like one of your advertisers snuck in a popup.

The URL it came from begins with http://amch.questionmarket.com

#29 you have obviously not been coming here for a long time. Even taking into account this latest spout of difficulties bluesnews.com has been more realiable over the past 5 years than 90% of the other websites i've been to.
