1881  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do you feel old? on: October 21, 2005, 10:11:42 AM
I`ll be 30 early next year, and while that is only somewhat old :roll: , it`s still the same effect.

 Things either suck and take forever or are enjoyable and fly by WAY too fast.

 Don`t mind me it`s way too early, but yes I do certainly agree with you :wink: .

 It`s the other way around for me at least :wink: .
1883  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who else got a copy of F.E.A.R a day early? on: October 21, 2005, 08:18:39 AM
I just finished this game. Holy shit! I haven`t done this before...well in a long while anyways...
 I bought it on tuesday. I played on tuesday(5 hours), wednesday(3 hours), and thurday(tonight, 3 more...). I have the urge to boot it up again and restart it on a higher difficulty level tomarrow night too! :shock: .
 What a truely awesome game, seriously. Like the Max Payne series, it wasn`t the longest game...BUT, also like that series(for me at least) the replayability is/was rather high. Just plain fun,fun,fun!

I dunno, I would REALLY consider getting F.E.A.R. if my computer was up to snuff.  I just don't think I would enjoy it with a low framerate and graphical options turned down really low.


 What are you running?

Seems a bit high to me personally....but I didn't price anything.


If you happen to price anything in this neighborhood, you might be in for a rude awakening. smile  These suckers are beginning to cost real money.

Falcon Northwest/Alienware for comparable rig's invites serious sticker shock. smile

 
 I`m not going to deny that^, but this FNW has served me reallllllllll good over the years :wink: . They know how to sell, build, and support them like no other it seems.
1886  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who else got a copy of F.E.A.R a day early? on: October 20, 2005, 07:25:23 AM
Wow, I`ve played this ALOT in the last two night. I NEVER sit down and play a game for 5 hours at a time...but I managed to do just that, and then 3 more tonight...I`ve still got a little ways to go, and I`ll fire this right up after I beat it on a hard difficulty level. I NEVER do that! :shock:
 
 The MP demo ran fine, but the first and only time I tried the retail mp It gave me an error right in the browser :x , but I haven`t tried it again and the SP game runs GREAT! I`d assume that new drivers or a patch will kill that bug.
 I`m running it on a 3.0ghz, 1gb ddr, 6800gt, and it runs really well, better than I had guessed it would. This ones a keeper!
1887  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Need a good computer, that can run WoW with NO problems on: October 13, 2005, 10:27:57 PM
I`d recommend a falcon northwest. Look at the prebuilt ones, not the others. I can`t comment on those specifically, but the support and sales there is very good. It might be too much to spend, but like I said I haven`t really looked into those. Worth a look.
1888  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Creative Audigy 2 driver issues!!! Can anyone help? on: October 13, 2005, 10:22:40 PM
Ok, here`s the deal...

 This PC is a falcon northwest, I`ve been very happy with it, but that`s beside the point :wink: .

  Last time after I ran my rescue disk, I went to update my sound drivers just like many times before. This time it says it cannot detect my card...even though windows sees it, and even though it works fine with the drivers that are currently installed. This was through the auto-update feature on the creative site. So, I tried the manual update...the same thing. I looked on the forums and this is definately a widespread issue.
 
 I spoke with the excellent support at falcon(and I`m waiting to hear from them as we speak) and the one guy said he has seen this 2 dozen times! :shock: . He says( I think so anywho, that`s what I am waiting to confirm) that a full reinstall of windows did the trick. Well, I`d obviously rather just run the rescue disk, cuz it`s ALOT less work and the drivers on there seem good enough...for now...Then I look around at the creative forums and lots of people have reinstalled windows etc, and still no luck. I don`t want to do MORE work and have no drivers at all, but I don`t want to run the rescue disk and be "stuck" with dated drivers...
 
 Any ideas? Has anyone here heard of this, or witnessed this themselves?

 On top of all of that I tried some work around on the forums and it gave me a blue screen and my sound drivers are now corrupted or missing...and my pc beeps...Which is fine since I`m going to redo everything one way or another, BUT, I`d like some plan of attack here so I only redo things once. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I`m actually just getting the sp demo right now, I`m behind the times :wink: . I`m looking forward to this VERY much, that ign hands-on says it run well on a 3.0ghz w/ a 6800gt, that`s what i got! Tongue  In fact, i need to do this anywho, so I`m doing a clean install of windows etc this week/weekend. Hope this one`s a goodie!

Yea, I usually don`t mind him in his "loud" roles :wink: . But in man on the moon, this and like you said truman, I think he`s great. I was just flat out floored by how well theis movie worked. Some movies seem like a good idea, bu then they`re really not fun to watch...This was a great idea, put together really well IMHO. Great flick!
1895  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Black & White 2 .... on: October 06, 2005, 09:55:26 PM
Thanks for the heads up on that beta driver, but if I can get a official one that works, I`ll go that route first. So who here has nvidia hardware, 6800gt or other, and what drivers are you using? Thanks again.
1896  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Black & White 2 .... on: October 06, 2005, 07:43:28 PM
Thx. If I need to I`ll try the 77.72, are they official? BTW, what other games do you play with them, and with what results? Thx again :wink: !
1897  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The eternal sunshine of a spotless mind... on: October 06, 2005, 09:16:17 AM
I know I`m late to the party here, but wow. What a frickin` GREAT movie. BTW, did I get the name right? :wink: We rented this last weekend and I was floored, really floored. I still haven`t returned it, I have it for a few more days...for the first time in ages I might watch the same movie TWICE in a week! That`s bigtime for me :shock: .
 So, anyone else absolutely love this movie?
1898  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Black & White 2 .... on: October 06, 2005, 07:48:28 AM
I looked around and...there is a patch coming out already, lots of fixes. I did not see this one though, has anyone here witnessed the issue I spoke of?

 Actually, this is it, have a look...http://allboards.lionhead.com/showthread.php?t=98257

 Correct me if I`m wrong, but doesn`t it say that the 78.01 or whatever the newest ones are have no changes from the 77.77  aside from the 6500 supports, or something or other?
1899  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Black & White 2 .... on: October 06, 2005, 07:21:46 AM
This game flat out rock. I just played for a few hours and wow. I had to force myself to put it down. I`m very pleased with this so far, this game is seriously in a league of it`s own. Great game. The only this is...heh. I think the drivers im running don`t like the game, Im running the 77.77 I think on 6800 gt and my creature looks like he has ropes hanging off of him , it`s odd and no, it`s not the leash... :roll: . I figure it`s something fixable, so I`m off to look around. Great game though, really great so far.

1903  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I'm preloading Day of Defeat: Source right now on: October 01, 2005, 08:01:26 AM
Well, chalk it up to just plain wackyness or something :? , maybe that small fix on tuesday fixed it. After monday I didnt even try to play until today(I was pissed :roll: ), so I fired it up today and it plays great. So I hope that`s the end of that :wink: , that`s for sure! And BTW, DOD:S just plain rocks. Great game, and funny enough...even with that new lighting on etc, it runs smoother thats cs:s for me. Cs:s runs good, but this seems even smoother.

I have a sony 32inch trinitron. It does 480i,480p,720p,1080i, but no widescreen frown , but it still rocks! biggrin . I don`t mind no widescreen and it`s big enough for our small apartment living room. GREAT picture!


I'm assuming that your monitor has an aspect ratio button to change between 4:3 and 16:9?  If so then you are still doing "widescreen."  Change the aspect ratio to 16:9 on the TV and make sure the video source (game console, DVD, etc) is also set up for 16:9 displays and you're in business.  

I bought a 32" HDTV for my gaming TV for just that reason- when watching widescreen content I get approximately a 30" screen.  However when watching standard content (which was important since I play a lot of older games) I'm getting 32" of picture.  If I had gone with the comparably priced 30" widescreen models then my widescreen picture wouldn't have been any bigger but standard content would only be 24" diagonal.  

As long as you're fine with black bars then I think 32" HDTVs are a great tradeoff if you'll spend a healthy portion of the time viewing non-HD material.


 Ya, I don`t mind the black bars at all really. It does have a 16:9 enhanced function or something or other. I just haven`t tried it out, I`m sure with the 360 I will though;)

I want to live in Southern California. Orange Countyish. I absolutely love it there. Need to find a decent job though, and so far I haven't, so I remain in dreary, miserable Maryland.


 Marylands not treating you real good :cry: . I hear ya I`m in ohio, near cleveland. ick. It`s really not THAT bad, it has nice parks etc. but, it`s far from "fun" to live in, as far as I`m concerned. :wink: I also do like California...that is until i turn on the news and see all that forest fire crap :shock: . I won`t live in a place with that stuff going on, that`s for sure.

anywhere, where would you? I`m just curious, I posted awhile back about what people would like to do for a living etc., well this is similar(obviously). We both want to move outta here at some point, sooner than later. I`m really open to ANY suggestions. I like cold and warm places. I do like warm better than cold, but to be honest I hate both extremes...really hot and really cold. BUT, I`d really move anywhere if I really liked it. Any ideas?

The magazine reviews so far...

GamesMaster: 91%
Gamestar: 82%
Some other german magazine: 80%
EDGE: 7/10
PCFormat: 67%
PCGamer UK: 76%


Wow, that is all over the map-suprised PCGamer UK gave it such a low score-dont they usually review games early and give them like 9.5s?


 Not to sound like ass(I don`t sound like one, but rest assured, I am one :wink: )but...I really only look at gamespy, gamespot, and IGN. I really don`t like any of them, but used together, I think they get the job done. I`ve never used ANY of the sources above. That`s not to say the aren`t good sources, just I`ve never used them before.
