So has anyone heard any news about the stats server? It's been over 4 months since the front page was updated...

Uhhh....My extra buttons on the Optical Logitech Mouseman work perfectly in games, with Mouseware installed.

OMG! I loved that game on the Amiga! It was the best RPG of its type that I've ever played.
I'll definately have to check out this port. I seem to remember I got stuck right near the end on the original.

Oh please.

#1) Most console games suck unless you're 12-16. All flash, no substance.
And most PC games suck unless you want yet another generic 3D shooter. ;p
I love my PC for gaming - I'm not planning on getting a console to do any hardcore fragging like UT2k3, or in-depth stuff like Planescape : Torment.
But console games can be more innovative than PC games - you're not going to find something like Rez or Jet Set Radio or Shenmue on your PC (Can you tell I'm a Dreamcast fan? ). They do certain things extremely well - 2d shooters, or fighting games, or in fact any multiplayer game suited to playing with friends on the sofa, instead of with some random geek on the other side of the world. To say that they're only suited to 12-16 year olds is clearly shite.

#2) PC games will always look better than consoles.
Bullshit. There was nothing around to touch the beautiful textures & animation of Soul Calibur when that came out. There was nothing to touch the detail in MGS2. Splinter Cell looks gorgeous, especially the lighting/shadowing work. I've been told that the latest Resident Evil on the Gamecube is impressive, but I've only seen video trailers for it so far.
There are always products on both consoles & PCs that push the envelope. PCs have more raw power, but consoles can be pushed farther since it's a static, well-known platform.

#3) People use PC's for other things besides just playing games.
I use my stereo for more than just playing CDs. Does that mean I don't want a portable CD player?

#4) Consoles are moving into 2-3 year upgrade cycles now. Only another year and a half till PS3/XBOX2. Will you upgrade than? Guess you'll have to if you still want to play console games.
Uhuh. Want to play any cutting edge 3d games on your PC in 2004? Guess you'll be upgrading then.

Picozip is pretty nice. No great improvements or de-provements (*) over Winzip, but if you feel like playing with the underdog for a change, take a look.

(*: What the hell is the opposite of improvement?)

If you don't want to lose the announcer entirely, but find him a little annoying, you could try tweaking the AnnouncerVolume=4 found in user.ini

Tragic event or otherwise, the way the news media keeps squeezing the event for all the emotial response they can get from it gets pretty tiring after a year.

Indeed - it's bad enough here in the UK. The one that really bugged me was one of the tennis commentators saying what a fitting tribute it was that the final was played by American players. *sigh*

Anyone know if & when an English version will be released?

Project Nomads always looked pretty cool - I took a look at their engine a couple of years ago while I was evaluating a bunch of different ones. The engine is still free for download at www.radonlabs.de, although I haven't looked at it in a while, so don't know what state it's currently in.

Good news indeed.

As for running the original, have you tried http://scummvm.sourceforge.net/ ?
I've been replaying Sam & Max and DOTT all over again

The only applications I can think of for this are
a) changing your CD key because your current warez key isn't letting you connect
b) changing your CD key because you've been banned for your l33t cheating skills.


[EDIT: Ah...I see the web page lists 'This is convenient when you [...] want your statistics under a different player name.'
Riiiight. Show me 1 player that wants multiple stats analysis, and I'll show you 500 warez kiddies.]

Looks pretty sweet. It's a shame about the words that appear over every single person's head when they die...hopefully you can turn them off or reduce the frequency with which they appear.

Never seen that happening in my game. Rumour has it that you can fix this my switching the frame limiter back on.

I had one of my top ones out last week, I'm going back to have the other one out on thursday.

If it's the top ones you're pulling out, you really, honestly have nothing to worry about. The worst part is the anaesthetic needle in the roof of your mouth, after that you don't feel a thing. I bled for quite a while afterwards, but no pain that a paracetemol didn't cure.

Hmmmm....yeah, the video was badly done. However, the engine looks promising. More UFO:EU action can only be a good thing, right?

I was poking all over my account settings looking for an anonymous posts filter, and managed to miss the one on the main page.

Bye bye, anonymous wankers.

I think this thread is the best example for the 'why anonymous posting should be banned' legislation that I've ever seen.

At the very least we should be able to toggle an 'ignore anonymous posts' switch on and off.

Indeed. I'm by no means a NIN fan, but I picked up the live album recently and it's very, very impressive. Definately recommended if you don't have their other stuff.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Reznor will work on Doom3. The Quake1 soundtrack is one of my favorites.
