I wonder why they choose Mexican versions for importation. Canada is a lot closer (to the NE) and all the soft drinks and candy bars are made with sugar.

it's not stop and play FPS for a while.

It's when you are boarding a ship to capture it, you and your friends will board the ship and have to kill the current owners of the ship and then take control of it. Killing them in FPS, inside the corridors of the ship etc.

Also, lets say you find an abandoned space station or whatever, you land your ship on it, get out walk around to explore, and another person has also landed on the other side and all of a sudden a FPS firefight breaks out as you run into each other both exploring the same station or planet etc. (or groups of players exploring together)

Ok.. that's cool and all, but what game are your friends playing when you decide to board the ship? They will be flying their own ships most likely. So everyone will need to stop and come do the boarding mini-game. I'm just trying to think of how this plays out in reality.

I understand that you can run around in 3rd person mode now.. but if people are flying and trading... how do they expect to get people to stop and play an FPS for a while? Is there an announcement or something? Maybe you just fight ai and can go into FPS mode when you want.

So how is the fps supposed to work? Do you launch a different .exe if Monday nights are FPS night or something? Or are you supposed to fly somewhere and then meet with a bunch of other people that have flown there and then death match?

Of all the servers that run NS2Stats, the win rate is 54% aliens 46% Marines, which isn't so bad.

Thanks, I'll give it a try again.. I stopped playing after a couple consecutive maps of 1-2 guys with jetpack/shotgun combos just wrecking the entire server. Glad it's been balanced out.

They've made some impressive improvements to the game engine but does anyone know if they've addressed the balance problems?

I still don't understand the mass appeal of this game. I just fired it up after work to see what was updated. I'm doing great for a while, then get completely obliterated after one bad roll of the random number generator. Maybe I just really suck at it, but I prefer to have more control.

I agree with the reference to Rogue. And I have also never found games in that style to be enjoyable. I think the gamer should be given the rules and be allowed to figure it out within context. Simply hiding the rules and making game progression a trial and error process can be extremely frustrating.

I had no problems loading up my save yesterday but did see a bunch of people on the forums who did. Game itself is ok but the missed opportunities are glaring and frustrating, could have been so much better with a few changes. The disjointed story is especially telling, the game feels like it went through 3 different teams.

They said it was time-stamp issue effecting games that were saved on the March 30 (and March 31?). If your save was before then you would not be effected.

Anyway.. I could load the game fine, I just could not leave the map. It would just reload the same area no matter how many exits I tried.

Wind simulation... that's... a first in gaming.. looks pretty neat. Let's hope it's a good game.

Flight simulators have a certain amount of wind modeled on occasion. It's usually a fairly simple and uniform effect, at least from what I've seen.

There's zero risk in the 'we won't sell..' statement, in fact you have everything to gain! You cash in on some trending anti-facebook PR, reassure your marks that everything is fine, and go to sleep at night knowing that no one would be interested in buying your house of cards.

1602 had it, it was maybe LAN only. My girlfriend and I played it on our LAN and it was pretty fun, she had the cash, I had the ships... worked out nicely as long as I got my protection fees.

The information page says "up to four players"!!!! Weeeeeeee

This game hasn't had working multi since 98-99, whenever the first one hit, I believe.

I'm a long time supporter of the IL2 franchise. I've really been looking forward to Oleg's BoB title. But man... those exterior shots look they're ripped right from the current game engine?!?! What gives? How is this a next gen title with 2001 technology?

Oh, lighten up. Some of us dig extras.

No sh!t... I want extra bugs if I'm paying a premium price! Don't give me some half-buggy, half-hearted, it'll-probably-work title. I want the entire AAA software experience dammit!

How is this news? It's like saying a cook at a local Denny's is no longer with them.

Hey guys, I can definitely confirm that I have left Denny's.

Denny's says that development of the Egg Bacon Broiler hasn't been impacted by my departure and is scheduled to hit menu's this fall. I can't say anything more about the situation and hope you all understand. (smile)


Honestly...

4. Client stutters Jul 7, 2005, 11:11 Nimh
 
I think the problems go a bit further than server issues and patch install problems. I updated last night and now have constant stuttering upon map load.

The funny thing about is that BF2 was smooth as silk where as BF1942 and BFV always had issues with stuttery movement. I guess the patch is doing it's best to insure proper Battlefield gameplay.

You haven't played against a good Commander. Those arty strikes are murder sometimes. The really cagey ones start calling arty as soon as one of their flags go gray

Thankfully you can almost always hear the artillery being fired. If you're capping you can bet they're coming for you. Once the flag goes gray move out of the zone until the artillery has finished. Then move back in and finish the cap. Pretty simple.
