1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I want to play Freespace 2! on: October 14, 2004, 04:38:17 AM
So, I never even heard of this game until I read the thread about Smart maybe making Freespace 3 over at GG a while back.

I want to try it, but none of the 15+ sites on the offical page that are supposed to host the demo file have it. . . guess it has been too long?

Anyone know where I can download the demo?


P.S.  Is Descent: Freespace the same Descent that came out when Doom was popular?  I remember playing a game where u are a ship flying around in caves and shooting things?
2  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone watch Montel aka puppet mouthpiece for Sylvia Browne? on: October 13, 2004, 01:16:11 PM
Do u guys believe in Slyvia Browne's "powers"?  To those that don't know, she's one of the (in)famous people known for their so called psychic powers.

Every single time I change channels and see Montel's talk show, I see her on it spouting about how someone's illness is a blood disease, or how someone else's dead wife makes sounds in the house, etc.

Anyone believe in this cr*p?  Because it seems alot of people do. . .

If she really had powers, she would be filthy rich.  Instead, she goes on Montel hawking her books. . . why hawk books when u can just win the lottery or trade stocks (that are affected by major world events) every day?  hmm.

Thx for the responses guys :-)

OMG there's a pause button??!!!  lol.  Ooh, that makes the game a bit more bearable :-)

I try to use spells, but they seem a little hard to target with.  Is there a next target/ next foe button?  It's hard trying to use any of my single target attack spells when all the enemies are swarming around. . ..  EDIT: Sorry, dumb question.  I just read where u stated that u can issue commands while paused also :-)

I just respect whomever actually does play Sacrifice.  I tried to get into it awhile back, just couldn't.  I like the idea and I wish I were somewhat good at those types of games.  Though, it's almost in a genre of its own.  Good luck with those strats   :D

Ooh, I never said I was good at these types of games.  Heck, I never said I was decent lol.  I'm mostly a turn based strategy gamer ala MOO and EU, with an ocassional appetite for CS/DoD :-)

I have no idea what type of game Sacrifice falls under. . .

So I finally got my copy of Sacrifice back from my brother after, oh, two years :-)  It's as fun as I remember it, if not just as hard.  I stopped playing the first time around, since Pyro's wizards were too d*mn tough after the 4th or 5th level.

I realized that I still suck lol.

I need some serious help.  Anyone remember their strategies with this game?  

1.  Do you have a specific order of missions that you do in order to get certain monsters and spells?  I did charnel first to get his scythes and fallen creatures(I love them), but then I have been with James for the next 4 missions. . . I like rocks :-)  His spells suck though.

2.  Any strategies in formations/attack strategies/combined arms makeup?  I tend to have phalanx formation for archer types, I tend to use mostly archer types, and I usually go for 2 expensive(3 soul) units instead of 6 cheap (1 soul ) units.  Good or bad?

3.  Do u use guardians at all?  They seem useless, since it lowers your fighting force, and any wizard with a couple guys can kill them and convert them before I can reach the manalith anyways. . .

4.  I usually go for 2 manahours and 2 manaliths, and then concentrate on killing the opposing wizards army and converting, before I finally go after his altar.  I tend not to go after his manaliths unless it's on the way.  Is that a decent strategy?

Thx for any tips and reading my long *ss post :-)
6  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need some simple IE/Flash ad help on: October 09, 2004, 12:16:04 PM
I remember reading this over at GG a while ago, but for obvious reasons I can't find it.

I am getting annoying Flash web ads, and I want to get rid of them.  I don't want to use another browser, since I am used to Microsoft's not so good IE browser.  However, I am starting to hate Flash, and since I am on dialup anyways I really don't need it for anything.  

So, any way to get rid of Flash?  Do I check some option somewhere, or delete the installed components, etc?

Thx in advance.  And I hope this question is in the right section :-)
