Maybe it's just my love for heist flicks (especially Heat), but I really want this one to be great.  That video certainly didn't improve my opinion of the game, but there are times when I root for the underdog and really enjoy a game despite things like bad acting/script work.

all of my CTD's have been 'nVidia driver has stopped responding and restarted' ones, so I was hoping a newer driver would fix that.  I think I'll give turning DX10 off a shot.

There's absolutely NO reason to play HL in DX10 mode that I can see. You get crappier frame rates (easily half of the DX9 client, when it works for me) and major graphic issues (the 'smoke' in Hell outright vanishes and causes major transparency issues with the Hell Gate itself). And this is with my 8800GTX card and fully updated everything else.

well that sucks.  I might end up shelving the game for awhile to wait and see if they gets things patched up, especially with all the new stuff coming out in the next weeks.

Wow.  You people are strange.  Why bother cooking the damn steak in the first place?  Have them bring it out raw and chomp down on it!  For me, I actually love the burnt/charcoal-like taste.  And you probably won't believe me when I say this but the a well done steak can also be juicy.  They are not always completely dry folks.  No pink or red in the steak does not equate to dry.  I've had plenty of well done steaks that were juicy.  And by the way, it's not "wrong" if someone enjoys a steak well done.

And I hear you're not good dinner company anyway gellar.   icon_wink  icon_razz

You can't be serious.

I bet if you went into a quality steakhouse and ordered a steak well done, the chef would roll his eyes as he ruined a quality piece of meat for you.

I am very serious.  Why can you not understand this?  I - don't - like - my - steak - with - any - red/pink - at - all!  I enjoy the charcoal/burnt taste.  You eat your steak dripping blood red (which makes me want to wretch).  I eat my steak burnt brown.  We both enjoy it our own ways.  And if some chef rolled his eyes at me because I want my steak well done than F him/her and I'm out of there and never to return.

This is all because of that episode of EMERGENCY with the tape worms, isn't it?  icon_wink

not sure, but I hear they all liked their steak rare and thought anyone who didn't was a pussy  icon_wink

I believe there is something simple you can use, like some kind of sub-sonic thing, or else a squirrel repellent.

I once heard you can purchase something like fox musk, which causes the squirrels to stay far away.

Bravo, you guys don't have to go Rambo on them to get rid of them.

Have you ever seen Mythbusters? OF COURSE WE NEED HIGH EXPLOSIVES! Or a high powered sniper (air) rifle, whichever is handy at the moment.

are we talking about the clumpy kind of sticky when milks started to curdle?  if so I can understand that. 
I did have one person once tell me about how some dairies overmilk their cows and the udders get infected so you can get trace amounts of puss and blood in your milk...

I've tried the non-official 193.04 (I think) drivers, and I've tried the latest official drivers - both CTD me after about an hour and change of playing as the game crashes right into the upper memory limit imposed by a poorly designed game and Vista's shitty management of memory. Or it was just some other CTD bug/error/crash whatever this game has. After beating CoD4 in one playthrough without ANY problems, HL really is starting to annoy me.

And can't you just summon your Carnagor via your item and then change guns? If so, that would be a nice way to increase your fighting force without killing your DPS. biggrin

all of my CTD's have been 'nVidia driver has stopped responding and restarted' ones, so I was hoping a newer driver would fix that.  I think I'll give turning DX10 off a shot.

yeah, I can change weapons and keep the Carnagor summoned, but the Wasp Hive take up too much space to warrant 2 of them, and my other weapons quickslots are filled with other guns so I have a variety of damage types available to me.  I just hope I didn't lose the flamethrower I found last night before the game crashed.

I picked up an axe and a dagger in the tutorial starting area at the very beginning of the game, but the only thing I know about them so far is that they're "incompatible with Witcher fighting styles."  Is there an explanation of when or why I'd want to switch to these alternate weapons?

I haven't had any reason to use any of the auxiliary weapons yet, but you can disarm your opponents as you gain in level, so it wouldn't surprise me if they are able to do the same to you.

And that's nuts - I had nothing but +Luck items on EVERY piece of armor, and I NEVER got that many Legendaries in my 15 Marksman. What few I got were never designed for my class (which is REALLY a pain in the ass, IMHO).

that does get annoying, having your inventory jammed up with look and only 1 or 2 items that you can use.  say, does the game have it's own screenshot device or are you guys using FRAPS?  I'm not fond of FRAPS as it only saves in the .bmp format unless you buy the full version (and I don't do enough screen captures to justify it).
62626  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (Hellgate: London) Who's in? on: November 09, 2007, 03:30:51 PM
so, I was getting to the British Museum last night, cleared Bloomsbury and teleported back to town to clear out my loot, and 'blammo', CTD, video driver not working.  I see nVidia just released some new WHQL drivers- has anyone tried them out yet with HG?  I'm tempted, but I haven't had any issues with my other games (yet) so I'm kind of hesitant.

I also bought a nice little Wasp Hive gun that gives my summoner '1 to Carnagor'.  I haven't spent any points in it yet, but wow, a level 1 Carnagor with 4 Fire Elementals is pretty effective.  it was worth it to lose the extra shot speed and few points of damage from my previous gun.

What specs, Destructor?  COD4 is the first game for my system where I've had to bump down the graphics to have it run well.

Well, my system is a bit overkill if I had to make a guess:

Intel Quad Core @2.4GHz (soon to be OCed)
4GB RAM
8800 GTX (currently not OCed) at 1680x1050 resolution
PoS Vista

It also helps that I never run AA or AF. I'll always take framerate over graphics looking slightly better. The only time I ever saw the frame rate drop at all was whenever I moved through areas absolutely filled with smoke. Beyond that, it was 30FPS easily, if not 50-60.

hmm, I was running it on a system with Core 2 Duo @2.13Ghz, 2 GB RAM and a 8800GTX w/Vista with all the settings maxed and it was really smooth.  I think you should be fine with AA/AF on.

Who knows if he was misinformed or was playing some kind of cruel joke, but it sounded genuine to me.

there is only one sensible thing you should have done in that situation:  leap over the counter and beat the crap out of him until he recanted.
