You all have my curiosity piqued.  Can someone play with one of these with a relatively inexpensive joystick, or do you really need one of the super-duper rudder-joystick combos?

123  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS: Windows 7 Ultimate FULL Signature Edition (32 bit OR 64 bit) on: October 10, 2009, 12:18:03 AM
Pulled from one of the Windows 7 Party Packs.  Unopened.

I'd much rather sell this here than Ebay it...make me an offer.

Just to clarify, this comes with one license...but you can use it to install either the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version.

I really, really want to play this...but I find the camera is all over the place.  Having trouble controlling my view either driving or on foot.

Is there any way to make the camera behave a little more--any setup that'll make it be like it was in Vice City, for example?

131  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Since when did the BET awards become the American Pedophile Tribute Awards? on: June 29, 2009, 04:15:16 AM
This is sickening.  What do people think--he paid that kid back in the 90s $22 million out of the goodness of his heart?

He was a pedophile.  Plain and simple.  The worst kind of human garbage there is.  And they're paying tribute to him as if he was Martin Luther King.

F**k BET.

134  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Thank you to a person who helped a scared teenage girl 25 years ago on: June 25, 2009, 09:11:49 PM
As a teenager, I used to like to go into Manhattan on the weekends--I'd take my dad's monthly railroad ticket and explore the city.

One weekend, i went in, and was about to cross the street at the corner of 7th Avenue and 34th Street when I just took a wrong step, and tripped backwards.  Before I knew it, i heard a loud crack, and then I screamed in pain and fell to the ground,
because the crack was my ankle breaking in two places.

I was 15 years old.  Out of my mind with pain.  Screaming and crying.  And spent a good minute or so on the ground like that as people walked briskly by, no one wanting to help.

Until I heard a woman's voice, right next to me, screaming for police.  She stayed with me and comforted me, through the police and an ambulance coming for me.  Told me everything would be fine.  Stayed there when other strangers just walked on by.

As they were about to load my stretcher into the ambulance, I looked up, to thank her...but she was gone.

In the ambulance, as we were on our way, one of the paramedics asked if I'd known the woman who'd been my guardian angel in my hour of need.   When I told him I didn't, he told me he did, and he told me who she was.

Over the years I'd thought a number of times about contacting her.  To thank her.  Even if she didn't remember me.  But for whatever reason, I put it off, and hadn't thought about it in years...

Until I got home a little while ago and saw the headlines on Yahoo.

Rest in peace, Farrah Fawcett.  And thank yiou for protecting a scared, hurting girl when she needed it.  I just wish I'd said it to you while you were alive.

135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Spore: Galactic Adventures--DVD required in drive? on: June 25, 2009, 12:07:53 PM
Yea, but Lee, the whole point with Spore was that they had this stupid !@!#!@#@#! intrusive Securom DRM with installation limits, but at least you didn't have to have the DVD in drive to play.

Now they want us to deal with BOTH?  Gamecopyworld, here I come...
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Spore: Galactic Adventures--DVD required in drive? on: June 25, 2009, 01:43:38 AM
I thought this was supposed to be an add-on for the main game.  But after installing it, I've got a separate entry for Galactic Adventures in Vista's Game Explorer.

Even better, when I click on the entry in Game Explorer...it starts up GA, with a Spore: Galactic Adventures splash screen...and then the game asks for the DVD in drive?  WTF?

I thought the whole point of EA's DRM method was that no DVD in drive was required.  Now I have to deal with Securom AND the !@#!@#!@# DVD in drive if I want to play Galactic Adventures?

F*** you, EA!

141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Question about GTA 4 graphics settings on: June 22, 2009, 02:00:10 AM
So I just got around to buying and installing this today.

The system I'm playing it on is an i7-920, 6GB of DDR3, with a 512MB Radeon HD4850.  However, either the drivers/card/MB/whatever has some kind of feature where in addition to the video card's 512MB of onboard RAM, it can draw on unused system memory, up to 3GB worth.
Don't ask me how it works.  PLEASE.  My brain cells will melt.

Anyway, the system has run anything I've thrown at it at 1920 by 1080 with good framerates.  Crysis?  No problem.

So imagine my surprise when I installed GTA 4, ran it for the first time, and the graphics auto-adjust to LOW MEDIUM--and won't let me increase them!  (Draw Distance, etc, set to around 25%)/
So I do a little research online, find out how to unlock the graphics, and crank everything all the way up, to the point where at 1920 by 1080 it's telling me it's using almost 1.5GB of graphics memory.
I run the benchmark, and I get 35 FPS.

Is there any hardware or software related reason anyone knows of why I would NOT want to crank the graphics up?

148  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Dodge-Isuzu dealer has his business taken out from under him on: May 19, 2009, 09:34:15 PM
I mean, holy ****, I hope there is more to this story...friend of mine forwarded me a link to this.

May 19, 2009
Letter from a Dodge dealer
letter to the editor
My name is George C. Joseph. I am the sole owner of Sunshine Dodge-Isuzu, a family owned and operated business in Melbourne, Florida. My family bought and paid for this automobile franchise 35 years ago in 1974. I am the second generation to manage this business.

We currently employ 50+ people and before the economic slowdown we employed over 70 local people. We are active in the community and the local chamber of commerce. We deal with several dozen local vendors on a day to day basis and many more during a month. All depend on our business for part of their livelihood. We are financially strong with great respect in the market place and community. We have strong local presence and stability.

I work every day the store is open, nine to ten hours a day. I know most of our customers and all our employees. Sunshine Dodge is my life.

On Thursday, May 14, 2009 I was notified that my Dodge franchise, that we purchased, will be taken away from my family on June 9, 2009 without compensation and given to another dealer at no cost to them. My new vehicle inventory consists of 125 vehicles with a financed balance of 3 million dollars. This inventory becomes impossible to sell with no factory incentives beyond June 9, 2009. Without the Dodge franchise we can no longer sell a new Dodge as "new," nor will we be able to do any warranty service work. Additionally, my Dodge parts inventory, (approximately $300,000.) is virtually worthless without the ability to perform warranty service. There is no offer from Chrysler to buy back the vehicles or parts inventory.

Our facility was recently totally renovated at Chrysler's insistence, incurring a multi-million dollar debt in the form of a mortgage at Sun Trust Bank.

HOW IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CAN THIS HAPPEN?

THIS IS A PRIVATE BUSINESS NOT A GOVERNMENT ENTITY

This is beyond imagination! My business is being stolen from me through NO FAULT OF OUR OWN. We did NOTHING wrong.

This atrocity will most likely force my family into bankruptcy. This will also cause our 50+ employees to be unemployed. How will they provide for their families? This is a total economic disaster.

HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN IN A FREE MARKET ECONOMY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

I beseech your help, and look forward to your reply. Thank you.

Sincerely,

George C. Joseph
President & Owner
Sunshine Dodge-Isuzu
