It's also important that you are able to run at least 2 different lines around each track imo.  This way if you have to go through a turn with another car you both have a line you can follow.   Obviously not all turns permit multiple cars, but several do.

there have been a few issues with being told that you failed to join, I've found rebooting and keep trying usually gets you in eventually.  Seems to be a problem with their matchmaking servers and the problem didn't exist before the masses got their game.

I think Bull got in the game during our 3 race series which unfortunatly means that for 3 races nobody else can join. sorry

I know I ducked invites Wednesday night cuz I wanted to mess with the single player, but last night I was hoping for an invite and didn't get one! I know half of you are on my friends list and I'll get the other half added once I kill off some old names to make room. Invite me dammit.  icon_twisted

I *try* not to suck but sometimes it just happens. I should get my wheel today, that *may* make me suck less... maybe not.

sorry coop, I'll try to invite you tonight.  I kept track of people who didn't respond to my invites Wed and tried not to invite them Thurs since they obviously don't like me slywink

I disagree with your stance on passing since you do have a rear view, people can talk to you and let you know where they are, and you can turn up the sound on opponent engines and know they are there.  True that it is much more difficult online, but some concessions have to be made for the sake of fewer crashes without giving up passing opportunities.  After playing in 42 car online race leagues back with the Sierra/Papyrus Nascar games I know that you can learn when cars are next to you and when to back off or be aggressive.  Winning at all costs isn't the right attitude for this particular game imo.  There is no shame in backing off whether you were the leader being overtaken or the passer that didn't make it far enough.

I'd like to add that if the car in front of you at the starting line doesn't accelerate as fast as you'd like, please go around instead of smashing into them... thank you. slywink

Here's a nice little thing I found that should help those of us playing online:

Corner Rights

You must establish substantial overlap with the car ahead before they reach the cornerís turn-in point to have the right to drive up their inside, or to expect them to leave inside room for you. Substantial overlap means at least that the front of your car is up to say the driverís position in the ahead car - and thatís at the very least. You probably should have more overlap in some circumstances. The ahead driver has the right to be fully committed to the racing line of their choice without any interference if there was no substantial overlap before he turned in.

If sufficient overlap is established before the turn-in point, then the behind driver has the right to sufficient side room. The ahead driver must then leave sufficient side room for the behind driver.

The car on the outside has the right to outside room all the way through the corner Ė right up to the exit point. They should not be squeezed against the outside towards the exit point.

The car on the inside has the right to inside room all the way through the corner - right up to the exit point. They should not be squeezed against the inside towards the apex area. The ahead driver can still battle for the position of course but must do so while maintaining side room for the behind driver. The practice of going up the inside of an ahead car after they have already turned in, and where there was no established substantial overlap before the turn-in point, is sometimes referred to as barge passing, ( I.e. you barge your way past ). Understand that barge passing is a high risk manoeuvre for both you and others. You have no rights what-so-ever as a barge passer. Should you cause an accident from a barge passing manoeuvre youíll be in a defenceless position should you be protested?

Where an ahead driver has clearly made a sufficient error to warrant a passing move a behind driver may attack their position, with due caution and care, regardless of whether there was any pre-existing overlap. E.g. - If the ahead driver brakes too late and drifts out wide of the apex and then has to reduce speed etc. This would be a valid passing opportunity regardless of whether there was pre-existing overlap. However, there is still substantial responsibility on the overtaking driver to take all necessary care to avoid contact. Small errors by the ahead driver may not be sufficient to justify an attacking passing move however. Just because the ahead drivers gets a bit out of shape at times doesnít give you an automatic right to pass uncontested by them or a right to room. You still have to judge if their error provides sufficient opportunity for a safe pass to take place.

ē Slow Ride (as made famous by Fog Hat)

Fog Hat plays fricken county fairs.  How on earth does it work out that they need to have somebody perform a cover of a Fog Hat song (one might say the only Fog Hat song, if they went by what's played on the radio)?  Is Fog Hat actually in a position to hold out for too much money?

Few artists are in this position. Music companies, however, are legion.

yeah, it's probably a manager or record label being the bitch and not the band, the band itself doesn't really have the clout to be pricks about money at this point.

Paint it Black is one of my favorites so I'm definitely in.  An awful lot of those look like they aren't covers.  Impressive that they can now get so many big names to give the tracks up and/or come in and lay down new ones.

9418  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]POTC: @ World's End on: May 22, 2007, 06:55:28 PM
After playing a bit further, I think the only thing keeping me going is the desire to see the end.  Gameplay-wise it's getting boring pretty fast.  All enemies take the same number of hits, you only have so many combos you can do (which is about 3) and you never get anything better.  Going to be a long boring slugfest interspersed with semi-fun old school Pirates! duels.  I'll still beat it since my niece is a PotC fiend and probably would disown me if I didn't so she can see the end, but I'm feeling a lot of regret towards buying.  I don't have a rental place near me, but this might be the game that pushes me to look into an internet site.  Any suggestions?

Picked this up today and I'm playing through it a bit.  Looks great, feels squishy smile

It's not bad for a movie license though, gameplay is pretty simple and straightforward, controls feel kinda sluggish though.  Some puzzles are a bit frustrating.  Probably worth a rental, wish I had instead of buying slywink

The appeal is growing in power and ability... leaping from building to building while dispensing death to all (sorry about that civvies... collateral damage you know)... having cars that change to match your ability level... mass explosions... shooting tires out and watching the cars flip off the bridge... insane gunfights with masses of gang hit squads.... climbing to the top of a 1100ft building... then jumping off... or getting blown off by a 'friend'... etc...etc...etc.

Early on it can be a bit overwhelming, but once you take out a couple of gang bosses and level a bit it is like being a superpowered cop.

But yeah... boring...  ninja

I think the little mechanic of the different colored experience "balls"  flying to you from your kills should be used by more games, especially MMORPGs.  There is something special about blowing up a group of baddies and having all that experience gained fly to you. 

I always chuckle to myself and throw my head back with my hands on my hips... mwahahaha, MORE POWER! then breathe deeply as the orbs merge with my body increasing my skills with a bang.

Trust me - that's not a strategy that will result in lasting success.

sadly people do it a lot in this game.  It seems everyone's first reaction is to jump and then shoot down at you.  Really kills the game a bit for me.  (and it is effective)

I never understood why Halo has suceeded.  The level repetiveness just ruins the game for me.  It's too cookie cutter and shows no creativity or uniqueness.  Even the enemies are limited as far as variety goes.  I think the few things that really grabs people are the multiplayer, sound, character and the weapons.

I know it's a breakout game for consoles, but translated on to a PC, it's very mediocre.  been there done that. 

I think multi is why it's done so well, not the campaign mode

I'll add this then, here's the emblem I've been using in H3.

I don't know specifically, but my understanding is that it involves a modded console, setting the songs up using PC software and reburning a new image of the game.  You effectively replace one of the existing songs with a custom one.  The animations for the song is the same as the replaced one and, as you noticed, the guitar track isn't separated.

That's correct, you basically create a new disk with replaced songs.

I may pick these up eventually- I hear there are some funny mistakes that they didn't catch like Dr. Bruce Banner talking to your party with the Hulk in it.

That happens all the time even without the expansion pack.

Since Hulk isn't playable until you get the pack, how is this possible?
