Not sure why making it to another planet would have to be a violation of physics.  Maybe they breed on the ship or just live a long time slywink

Too true.  For whatever reason, even after not playing for so long I was on fire tonight.  I feel bad when things get lopsided, especially when I know that half the kills were flukes but man does it get the adrenaline going.  Hope to get you back in some games too Ceekay.  really need Jarrod, Smurff, Ceekay, Kato, all the people who played when it first came out.

Okay I guess its time to dust off my copy of R6 Vegas.  I'll be online Tuesday night to re-learn how to NOT throw grenades at my teamates.

Who are you anyway?

Has anyone tried MP?
  I did.  I found it to be pretty shallow.  Felt like an afterthought....

MP I tried was too laggy to really give it a good try.  I can see where the coop modes might be fun, but not sure vs has much going for it.  I really do hate when achievements are mostly mp though. 

BTW, most boss battles are pretty easy if you just put a bunch of reds greens and blues on a flag and drag the flag keeping it just outside of the range of the boss.  Greens will jump to bosses, blues will rez and reds fire while you stay mostly out of damage.  Trolls are very easy this way.

Was able to put in a couple more hours tonight.  Rampaging and pillaging my way through the Shire was an absolute blast.  Sweeping my minions around the room in a path of destruction whilst chucking fireballs brings an evil smile to my face.  I'm not sure how long the novelty will last, but it's great fun so far.

A couple minor gripes:

1.  The lack of any sort of map certainly makes things confusing at times.  Many of the rooms look the same, and you are forced to pay very close attention to where you're going.

2.  Checkpoint save system.  Blech.   icon_mad

3.  Seems like the minions are sometimes unresponsive.  I'll tell them to sweep around a room, and only half of them will go, or they'll take a completely different route, or they'll just stand and look at me.  Will probably get better as I become more familiar with the controls.

A question as well.  I just got my first batch of Reds, and there's a Red "hive" it says I'm required to move before proceeding.  It requires 10 Reds to move, but there are only enough red orbs to summon 8.  I can't continue until I move the hive, but I can't move the hive until I can find more red orbs.  Am I missing something?


Those are my three gripes, as well.  The lack of a map seems like a ridiculous oversight to me.

Anytime they seem unresponsive I find that one tap on B and they sweep as normal again.  It seems to be that once a minion returns to you after grabbing something they are sometimes removed from the sweeping pool until you call back and sweep again.

Supposedly both the red and black packs are already up and available for free so I hope to see plenty of you over the next few nights.

Had a lot of fun, couple slightly frustrating moments.  Glad I rented it vs buying though since it was a one day game.

Not really, but I wish it was.  It's really fun.  Plenty of pickup games still, but it can be hard to find people that aren't morons slywink

I originally thought I liked the International farm rules better but after playing more I found that I don't.  It's too easy to win by farms in the games I've played due to it.

BiggerBoat, for some reason I sent you an invite some time ago.  Can't remember where I know you from though.  Anyhoo, welcome to the forums.  Yeah, the early races are pretty easy, as is to be expected.  They can get more frustrating as you go along, especially if you use the hard AI and impose restrictions on yourself to keep it fair.  But except for the series where everyone races the same cars, I imagine there's always a way to game the system.  For me, the real challenge is MP, where everyone is on an equal footing.

On that note, I haven't gotten invited to a MP race in a long time.  Has the group moved on to something else already?  Or is the general consensus that I am the dick?  Oh, delicious irony!

Maybe I should start a thread in the MP forum, but I would like to do some more racing with you folks.

I haven't been able to find a MP game in almost 2 weeks now, I'm going through withdrawal!

I love the calf operated brakes smile

Going down long steep roads you can bleed off speed and still keep a straight line and full control which is very good for me to not hit oncoming cars.

Brevity, Pete, is the soul of wit.

The reason there's been little activity in the MP forum regarding Forza 2 is that there's been a lot of MP being played.  The types of contests, and the permitted cars, have varied and been decided in an ad hoc basis that's actually worked out pretty well so far.  I haven't gotten any invites in the past few days, but I assume that it has something to do with my unpleasant personality and lack of skill.  But I've been enjoying the SP and when I want to play MP, there's usually enough people on that I'll just host a game and invite folks.

I haven't raced all week since work is kicking my ass.  I'll be on tonight and most of the weekend though and am almost always up for some mp.

The modes that allow AI drivers give no money at all.  Exhibition gives no money and is where all the 'unique' game modes are.

I'm gonna try to get to Chicago for the Darkfaire and see how it goes.

Gencon is late July in Indianapolis, and I hope to do well at Nationals but sadly haven't touched the game in almost 2 months so it's not very likely at this point.

I am good at MOST games, not all slywink

I'm reviewing some of the vids I've recorded to see if I can figure out using the telemetry what some of our less skilled brethren are doing differently.

anything on depwards strange driving last night?  I think it was depward....right?

I think it was disarm, I watched it later and watching the telemetry his steering input was going left to right and he was swerving.  The first time you two hit, he swerved over on you, the second time it was all your fault and you plowed him slywink

Lag doesn't show the actual steering column inputs so I think it was a case of thinking you're going straight while making small adjustments on the controller.  Watching some of these replays I'm noticing a lot more movement than previously expected when you compare wheel vs stick drivers.

Awesome.  That's exactly the kind of writeup I need in order to actually make some movement on learning to tune.  Thanks, Pug!

Also, kudos for being the first person to actually explain why manual shifting is better than auto.  Knowing that, I might actually try manual transmission.

It's also possible to downshift before or during a turn to have better control over the car and more 'juice' on exit and you can't do that with an auto.  Now if only the game would stop adding an extra downshift to me at random.  mad

Always remember that the exit of a turn is far more important than the entry. Regardless of how you enter a turn, if you can exit it smoothly you will cover the next distance much faster. 

I'd suggest anyone go into free run, run a couple laps as best they know how, then run a lap breaking early and coasting through the turn so they get a smooth exit and compare times. I was amazed that when I drove it in the more relaxed manner I was actually turning faster laps than when I drove it hard into turns and out of them.
9432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Forza 2 tips and tricks on: June 11, 2007, 04:20:34 PM
I'd like to see a process where we could have a car picked, someone upgrade it and disect why they did what they did.  Then someone tune it and run through why they did what they did, then actually gift the car around the group so we can each try that exact car setup and see why it is the way it is.  Might be an eye opener to some of the starting upgraders and drivers.

That's interesting, I thought I was the only one who had a wheel that shifted on it's own every now and then.  I'm hoping it's radio interference and not a defective product.

While differnet clans have varying degrees of seriousness I can't think of any that allow you to be in another clan.  It's like playing for two competing sports teams in the same league.

Does the full version have a way to invert Y axis?
9437  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Forza 2 tips and tricks on: June 10, 2007, 09:40:35 AM
Another hint/tip for controller users, there is a config that puts the shifting on the right analog stick which helps greatly in shifting control and feel.

Late night posting binge continues...

I wish the leaderboards had a sort by car so you could see who has the fastest times per model per track.

edit:  My console is now hard locking anytime I try to access the friends leaderboards.  The other leaderboards work fine.

When I grabbed my wheel it had the 3 pedals, gated shifter, wheel and a bunch of different plates for the shifter for about $200.

The 24 hour race at nurburginringhoweveryouspellit just resumed and OMFG!  They went 5 wide into that first turn off the straight on the restart.  Then, just like our races there was an accident between the 33% and 50% point on the lap slywink
