2321  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Dell 9100 deal - Frame Rates and possible upgrades? on: August 23, 2005, 06:03:22 AM
I`ll agree, if you want to play games he`ll (and you of course) will want at least! a 6600 card of some kind. The ram really needs to be at least 1gb also. I`m running a 3.0 w/ a 1gb and a 6800gt, and everything runs great still.

2323  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Ugg, i had to reinstall everything and WoW... on: August 18, 2005, 07:16:55 AM
...seriously takes like 30-maybe 40 minutes to install...How every long it took it was too long. All 4 cds, no dvd release! And in europe it was DVD only I believe (I might be incredibly wrong on that). Great game though. I don`t want to sound like I bitch alot Tongue , but... Finally lots of games are starting to go dvd, and a big release like this NO DVD? I`m done venting, and the game is well worth it :wink: . Later.

Don't know what kind of mobo to reccomend (though my last 4 or 5 have all been Asus), but the RAM...  I like the Corsair memory.  You might just stick with 1GB unless you really think you NEED 2GB.  I have 2GB in my game machine, but don't think it really needs it.  Just seemed like something neat at the time I built it.


 Another vote for the Corsair memory. And as far as the video card I got a 6800gt last year with my 3.0 ghz p4, and it smokes. I got a BFG one, it`s overclocked a bit out of the box and really stable. It has a LIFETIME warranty also. On the memory, I have one gb. I`m sure some things(battlefield 2!!! :twisted: ) would use the extra, BUT everything for the most part is supersmooth on here. How much power do you have BTW?

I would, but I can't.  FFXI IS THE RULER OF AAALLLLLL!!!!  . . . even though I quit several months ago.  Hmm, I've had a fixin' to play some FFXI as of late though.

But I still think playing WoW with you Harpua would be a blast.  Perhaps late August when I have a decent internet connection I'll play some WoW with you?  We shall see.


 I`ll be up for it!

I am up, but I need to get to bed and I am wired. Plus I quit WoW, sorry frown

I hate days like today.I wanted to play a game, but sort of looked at the huge list on my start menu and dicked away the night. I was tired and cranky most of the day until about 1030pm, when I picked up an entirely new head of steam. Seriously, I am more awake now than I was 13 hours ago. Its going to be a long night.


 I get like that. I seriously get like that. Sometimes the later, the more awake I am...

Quote from: "The Rocketman"
Well, if a game isn't fun anymore, quit playing it.

It almost feels like Blizzard is personally destroying lives here because a game you thought was fun half a year ago, has lost some of its appeal...

I'm new to MMORPG's, but come on. It's a game. Noone's making you play it.

Reaction 1: "Hmm, I've played it so much, I've gotten bored with it. I'll deactivate my account, and see what happens in a couple of months."

Reacton 2: "Hmmm, they aren't adding stuff fast enough, and they aren't adding stuff I personally like, so Blizzard must be made of idiots who hate me! I'm never buying a blizzard game again, even though I liked it at first."

So, chill man. Be Zen. smile


 Lol. Funny but TRUE stuff. Sometimes I get all crazy about something, then I think of something like that. Funny stuff :wink: .

We want no kids. I like some of my friends WELL BEHAVED kids, but I certainly don`t want that ALL OF THE TIME!!!
I`m not sure why people think they "need" to have children. Just my opinion I guess.


Dont have children. If you dont want kids around, DONT DO IT.

I will say this, I have two kids and I HATE when other kids are around, always did.. before my children I hated being around kids. But I love my kids to death.. and they are totally worth all the hardship, I hope to never live without them.

I had trouble concieving initially and we had fertility problems, but I never decided if I would adopt given my circumstances..

Tough decision.


 Well, I actually like some of friends kids, but I sure as hell don`t want them 24/7...That`s alot going on, ALL THE TIME with a kid. I struggle to manage my life :wink: , I can only imagine having a kid...
 I`m just suprised SO MANY people have kids. I think that most shouldn`t... :shock: ...I`m running away now :!:

Thanks guys. I appreciate it all. In fact, funny as it sounds...WOW is supposed to "save" me money. The plan is maybe this will keep me busy and I won`t buy other crap every week or two :wink: . Plus I need a new addiction, I just "requit" smoking again, or well, will be in 19 cigarettes. I quit for a year, then had a few rough things to deal with. This time it`s final though :shock: . I`ll make it though! Thanks again guys. I`m sure I`ll have more questions down the road.

 You`re right guys. I set everything to max and it looks great and runs great (as it should, I would think). I just got down screwing with settings etc. so I`m gonna grab a beer and play for a bit. Thanks again guys.

Absolutely great game so far. I`m just a level 4 warrior, but I can see where this is going! I had a few questions about this though. First, I have a p4 3.0ghz, 1gb ddr, 6800gt oc 256mb, sblive etc. Should I be able to run this at all high settings? It defaulted it kinda low on some stuff, and med and high on a few others(even though, to my surprise it looks rather nice at these setting even). I`m beat and I`ll be even more sleepy after I play for a few more hours... :wink:  Great game. If anyone has anything they think I should know, please feel free. Later.

Thanks guys! 22 hours is mindboggling Koz. At the end of the multiple choice yesterday I was jabbing my leg with my pencil to stay awake. It was tiring. I slept about 11 hours yesterday to recover from the test and lack of sleep. Yuck. To think that all this work and for 3 months you have to forget about it until your scores come through. Crazy!

Did you move states? I thought you would be heading back to school aroundish this time.


I be done with school (graduated a couple years) ago. I'm moving from Maine down with the Massholes outside of Boston.


 Sorry to take this off of this topic, but...Where about in Maine did you live?

Well, I LOVE BF2...aside from the patch recalling, the crappy game browser, and a few other little things. I`m sure I`ll love this too, BUT...isn`t this really early for a expansion pack. Anyone here care to comment? Here`s IGN`s coverage of it http://pc.ign.com/articles/632/632446p1.html. Enjoy!

2350  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dumb bf2 question... on: July 07, 2005, 05:57:45 AM
What`s up with ranking up. I ranked up, but what is really the benefit? I`ve had the game since day one, but at first the ranked servers sucked for me(laggy), and then the browser annoyed me with it`s crazy behavior. But, now that the patch is out, and the issues(for me) are resolved...It`s a great game. I see the unlockables, but I haven`t unlocked anything. Anyone want to explain how all of this works to a dumb guy like me :wink: . Thanks.

I don`t know about you guys, but I`ve been "aware" of africa`s poverty for quite some time. Why raise "awareness" about something that EVERYONE already knows about. I`m all about helping people, don`t get me wrong...but, this was ALOT of effort, for not really much results IMHO. Didn`t live aid raise millions of dollars, and this nothing...just awareness...awareness for something that I would assume MOST people already knew of...Yikes!

Quote from: "Skeld"
I played the game for three hours last night and I thought it was fantastic. I spent majority of my time as a medic, healing / reviving teammates and squadmates in turns while picking up the strays.

Random thoughts on it:

- I really like how varied the kits felt this time around; that just because you belonged to a "support" category doesn't mean you don't pack serious fire power. I really like the iidea of medic, engineer, and ammo specialist can passively do their support duty just by having support kits out. Also you finally can actually gain points from healing or repairing.

- The squadron system is brilliant; it is incredibly gratifing have some sort of strategy (communicated through VOIP) within a squadron and watching everybody actually working with one another... then to die from an artillery strike ordered by your commander  :evil:

- The maps (that I played one, which is probably around 4 or 5) were all nicely designed without any blatant imbalance between sides. Pretty much the same can be said with all the kits.

- Helicopters are extremely fun to fly. The air units can still dominate if it was in a hand of expert, but I don't think it was as bad as it was in BF:V since there are actually static SAM sites on some map.

Again, really fun game so far  biggrin


 I agree with EVERYTHING you said. Very fun game indeed. I will play this for along time to come!
