 Sorry about the lack of posting. I`ve been busy...with some things...and...SC:DA! nod

 So far the single and MP games both are very entertaining. I`ve no crashes, but it was laggy at first. It seems to have gotten better with more time after Live! came back up. I just played tonight and the games were all very smooth. I also played a bit more SP. Good stuff there too.

Gamespot review- 8.5.

Sounds pretty good but it seems more Pandora Tomorrow vice Chaos Theory (ie treading water vice a leap forward).  Which is fine- I really liked Pandora Tomorrow but it sounds like we might have to wait until next time out for another leap forward.

GS mentions the poor framerate on occasion which really bugs me.  By most accounts it's not a huge step up graphically from CT (indeed I think it's the same engine) so there is really no excuse for sub-30 fps performance IMO. 

 Well, when CT came out they did say that the engine was designed from the ground up for the 360, and then scaled back for CT on the original Xbox. That`s not to say it`s a ugly game at all. Far from it. Quite stunning actually.

 And the framerate seems fine to me so far, maybe it dips and that really shouldn`t happen, but it doesn`t get bad at all from my experience so far. Live! is up and I`m getting ready to play some MP. I freaking loved the Mp demo!
1924  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SC:DA is good fun so far! on: October 18, 2006, 10:12:42 AM

 That`s simply it. I played the single player for a little while tonight and since Live! was down until just recently no MP for me until tomarrow crybaby. Overall I like the changes they made to the gameplay. It`s still good old SC, just better. The graphics, sound, and all of the presentation is amazing. The animation is super smooth from what I`ve seen. Well, I need to sleep so I can get my shit done early tomarrow, uhhh...today, rather...and sit my ass back down and play some more SP, then some MP. Anyone else got this yet?
1925  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Ack! Router firewall question! AGAIN! on: October 02, 2006, 05:03:25 AM
 Roll Eyes
 
 Anywho, some of you folks where rather helpful a bit back. I have a few questions for you still, though :slywink:. I have a WRT54GS with speedbooster! and I`m running into an issue still. Everything but my source stuff is running well so I don`t want to tinker with much. But, my source stuff sucks and takes forever to join a game since I got this router set up. Once I`m in, it`s all cool, but wow. It can take a bit sometimes. So what ports do I need to open and how is that done? Or is something else needed to be done? Thanks a bunch!

 Ok, it looks like the 360 HATED those old cd-rs. After more music was put on and "tested", so far so good. And I "tested" quite a bit, so...So I guess watch out while putting some crappy cdrs on your 360 :icon_eek: And I`m loving the router so far as well, the new one that is Tongue.
1928  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just recently got a 360 and I need some help. Plz help me! New issue!!! on: September 06, 2006, 08:53:25 AM

 Hehe. Miscommunication icon_lol. The router is GREAT, no issues with it now. The current issue is when I "ripped" music on the HDD and played it. It locked up the system in PGR3 and in the dashboard. Since I deleted the music, it *seems* fine. I haven`t had lots of time to be on recently, so only time will prove. I did buy the warranty from EB, and it`s only been a few weeks since I got it. Just everything else seems to working great. The CDs I "ripped" on the 360 were old, kinda crappy cdrs, but the original xbox never had an issue with that, to my knowledge. Could that be it? Or the Harddrive? Just curious. I wanna get this squared away soon that`s all. I did grab that memory card just in case like I said... disgust

 I did look at that, but like I said the linksys one did the trick for me. Now just the other issue...any ideas?

1936  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / New router, a few questions. on: September 05, 2006, 04:31:18 AM
 I grabbed a linksys WRT54GS and with the 360, the DS and the PC...everything but gaming on the PC so far...it works great. But when I go to play CS:S, and I only got this far, it doesn`t show anyones name in the list of players on a server and it shows my ping at 2000 :icon_sad:. I`m assuming I need to open ports :icon_confused:, but no idea what and where. I only have hl2 games on here with WoW at the time. Any ideas? And I`d assume since the other things work fine they don`t need anything opened? Thanks!

1939  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just recently got a 360 and I need some help. Plz help me! New issue!!! on: September 05, 2006, 03:58:08 AM

 Here`s the deal now. I just got a linksys router, the wrt54gc, er or something like that :slywink:. It works great for my DS, 360 and PC so far. But, and this happened before the router so it`s not the issue, my dashboard and my pgr3 were locking up. It also said it couldn`t play some of my music... After I deleted all of the music it hasn`t done it since  paranoid. I "ripped" ,as the dashboard calls it, some music onto it off of some old cd-r stuff. They myight be crappy but...do you think it is the disks, or maybe the system or the harddrive? It was fine until I put on the music is seems, and since I took it off it seems fine paranoid. Any ideas. I picked up a memory card to be safe.

1941  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just recently got a 360 and I need some help. Plz help me! on: August 31, 2006, 09:13:01 PM
 No, I`m going to run everything BUT the DS still wired. I already have the cable setup and whatnot. But thanks for the advice, maybe in the future I will. So any wireless router suggestions?
1942  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just recently got a 360 and I need some help. Plz help me! on: August 31, 2006, 08:47:05 PM
 Ok, once more...sorry about the long time in between posts. Since I have no working router setup I have to do the switchy plug thing disgust, and since Oblivion ABSOLUTELY ROCKS!!! thumbsup nod Tongue, I haven`t been using the PC much recently (my poor WOW account icon_frown). But...I did try all of the above listed and still no dice. So I called tech for DLINK, and get this. Even though it was supported when I bought and worked with the original XBox, the DI-604, my revision at least, is no longer supported for Xbox Live!, and they pulled the firmware updates of off their website for it. So..............................I did want a wireless router for my DS anyways. I was thinking of just grabbing one of those and continuing to run my PC and console wired and the DS (obviously) wirelessly. Any suggestions? I *might* go out tonight and look and/or pick one up. So, let me have it. ? ? ?

 And, BTW I`m looking at the linksys models as we speak. I obviously want this to work for the DS and Live!

Connect your 360 directly to your modem, ie, bypass your router entirely.

Try playing then.  If it doesn't work, it's a problem with some combination of your modem, your 360, your ISP, and/or XBox Live.

If it works, well, the 360 hates your router.

My brother's 360 is connected to a router which serves two other computers on top of the 360.  Chromehounds will sometimes thrash and whine and cause drops from XBL, but it's not in any kind of pattern or frequency that would suggest a problem.

 Sorry I took so long to respond. You nailed it. I removed the router out of the picture and all good! icon_biggrin So, I wonder if that is the same fix for you Calvin. What`s your setup like? I`ll check back sooner this time, and thx for the help guys. I thought it might be that but since the router is on the xbox360 compatible list...and it worked fine with my original xbox... saywhat. So who knows. I`m looking into updating my router too, even though the firmware updates disappeared from dlinks site...any ideas there?

 I`m sure I`ll figure it out...eventually...with your help guys! nod

 Anywho, it seems to be anyone...any game I join...ick. I`m going to continue the search for answers. Thanks for the suggestion though, and keep `em coming icon_wink.

 Ok, here`s the deal. I got a 360 just a few days ago with graw and a charge and play kit and the warranty icon_wink. I`m just running a wired connection through my router to the 360. Everything seems all good ASIDE from graw dropping me from Live! everytime I go to play the MP. I thought, it did it in the dashboard too, but the more I think about it, I think it`s only dropped me in the MP game (i think icon_lol). It will say "lost connection from xbox Live!" or something like that. Then afterwards it just connects back right up to Live! saywhat I have no other games to test. But the tests all pass on the network test thingy. The tech support I spoke with had me set up a dmz on my router for just the 360, but no such luck. I can download the hell out of demos etc all fine (infact I got the dead rising demo and it seemed very fast), but the MP in this game...
 
 So, any ideas? Anyone have issues like this? I`m sure I`m forgetting some details, but it`s late so... I`ll check back soon enough to see what you guys think and I`m sure I`ll remember some details. Thanks.

 Play a game called "SCREAM IN THE FACE OF SOME ASSHOLE EB EMPLOYEE!!!" :twisted:

 Or something like that...BTW the last two are related and if you want to know how, look at my thread in the off-topic section. :wink:
1953  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Wow, I hated gamespot and EB before but now I really do... on: April 22, 2006, 06:03:27 AM
I`ve read numerous threads about this before and whatnot...well...

 I really HATE the way the these dumbass stores can sell used as new. Once I got a "floor copy" of rallisport for xbox (back in the day :wink: ) and under the lights in the store it looked fine, I get home and look at it, and wow. It was all fucked up. It looked like someone put it on the ground and stepped on it and actually tried to hurt the disc. They were all like, "Oh wow, how did that happen?!?", " that never happens!" etc. etc.

 That was years ago, and since then I`ve only purchased MAYBE 2 floor copies of stuff because of this crap. And in the last 2 years or so, I haven`t bought any.

 Well, my wife wanted a copy of meteos so we could play together since I have one and she likes it. I found a EB that had two NEW copies or so they said. So we get there and there it is, all opened and whatnot. Both were like this...Well, it looked in really good shape and I left it up to my wife. Either to take this one, or we`d go looking for another. Since it`s kinda hard to come by at this point, she decided just to get this one. She knows I HATE to do this, but it is her copy. So that`s what she did. No biggie.

 We just got around to playing it earlier tonight and guess WHAT!?! Since meteos keeps stats...we found out that it was first turned on at 7PM ON CHRISTMAS NIGHT!!! The damn store wasn`t even open then, so they can`t just bullshit me into thinking someone at the store played it. Which IMHO is wrong also. So we payed for a NEW one and got a USED one!!! :evil: .

  So since the game and case etc. is really in great shape and it was only used once before, we plan on keeping this copy. Literally it was only turned on once before, I know that also because the stats tell how many times you turned on, when it was first powered on etc. But, wow are they going to have to deal with some shit from me tomarrow! I fucking can`t stand this kind of shit!

 I feel better after venting :wink: , but why Oh why can`t anyone do what they are supposed to?

 Plus anytime I open something it`s "used" in their eyes, but the other way around...NOPE! :roll: Anywho anyone else just as angered by this bullshit?

If you decide to go with one of the manufacturers mentioned.  I recommend Falcon-NW.. I have had Alienwares as well as Falcon and Falcon blows them away imo.   I Have had it for 2.5 years now and its the best rig I ever owned.  I did not/still do not have the patience to build my own rig but I agree you can save money by doing so.  Will be buying another Falcon next year.  Look at their website and configure a rig.. You can get a very nice one for what your budgeting over at Falcon.
