hyped up games?

It seems gamers are refering to released games as hyped games for some reason. The only game I can think of that met the "hype" comment over the summer was Doom3.

So if you're getting this for single player, don't bother. Correct?

I've always related single player BF game play to playing the Sims. It's pointless but you can burn a few hours doing it.

Check that beast out Blue! I'm personally waiting for someone to slap some 35" spinner rims on one.

News Comments > DOOM 3 Beta Patch - SDK & Demo Soon

18. Re: Oh yeah.....Doom3 Sep 8, 2004, 10:20 Nimh
 
I personally don't know anyone around my office that still has Doom3 installed. I doubt a patch will make any of us reconsider. Big waste of $60 for budget level gaming in my opinion. It would've been perfect at $19.99.

and a clean multiplayer mode as basic obligations

Sweet news! I wonder how long before that feature gets yanked.

The Firefox cache exploit also effects IE it seems. Here's a test link. Both browsers get wrongly certified by paypal in this example. http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=154374&action=view

News Comments > Euro Ships Ahoy - 1503 A.D. Add-on

2. Re: Multi May 26, 2004, 09:45 Nimh
 
We've been dealing with the multiplayer/no multiplayer rumors, broken code etc. for over 2 years now.

1602 was one of the few games that my girlfriend and I would enjoy together on our LAN. It's a damn shame 1503 never did this.

Any developers reading this... please consider the value of zero sum multiplayer games (not MUDs). They don't exist at the moment. 1602 was bliss because the players were allowed to cooperate on an economic and military level, regardless of faction. 1602 was ahead of it's time.

Take special note that Luthier is the developer lead of the Pacific Fighters Sequel.

Keep up the good work Luthier, we're looking forward to it.

Coop is great. Basically any plane that can be flown (both sides) is displayed on the start screen. You pick your plane and the others are flown by ai. I like it much more than dog fight servers because it has purpose, a mission.

With the Ace Expansion Patch we now also have an online coop campaign generator. No more digging up mission files and so forth, just generate one and go.

One can also play several online virtual wars, VEF and VOW as an example. Those are also coops with many players on both sides flying the mission.

6. Re: IL-2 May 19, 2004, 16:36 Nimh
 
Is the first one (not forgotten battles, just IL-2) in the bargain bin yet? I like a good flying game here and there and this one looked like it had some nice graphics behind it too. Now with the added content its even more tempting to pick up...

The added content only works with Forgotten Battles + the Ace Expansion Pack. The original IL2 is no longer updated and includes none of the good stuff, but it's still an awesome sim. in it's own way.

Is it a good as everyone's been saying it was going to be for the last couple months?

Yes. This is amazingly good. The press demo is a little rough around the edges (TrackIR has tracking issues, etc.) but it doesn't matter. The simulator shines through in a major way.

I've been using for about a year with no issues either. It's nice to have options again.

I spent most of last evening playing this. Very awesome simulator. My best hot lap time is 2:24 in the GT. The target seems to be 2:15-ish (near real times for Spa).

Also check out the MOTEC program after you've finished a few laps.

It's a Ubi game so maybe they'll use the Far Cry engine? I'm sure they could work a better deal for the FC license than the UT license.

I think that stuff is sound related also. Maybe you guys can switch off the Audigy and test using the on-board AC97, but that's a horrible solution.

You may consider testing with alternative KX audio drivers for your Audigys.

KX drivers are here... http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/down.php?language=en

I think it might be sound-related, but I have no idea...I have an Audigy2 and a Radeon 9800.

Have you turned off hardware sound?

I have the same system ZigZang, except with a 9800 Pro.

I use Fraps to check frame rates, but you can also use the console and type: \r_displayinfo 1 (use 0 to turn it off).

I have textures on Medium, everything else on Very High except water... which is Ultra high. I'm playing at 1024x768 with 2xAA and 2xAF. My system averages 40-50 FPS with the very rare dip to 30 FPS. Very playable for a tactical shooter.
