Interested in Earth 2160 and HL2 if they have not been used with an internet connection.  I understand that both are tied to the original user's info.

edit - Also interested in Rome: TW Gold

+1 to warning for his box of GamingTrend fundraiser software.  Great way to help the site.
164  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Medieval Total War problem - black battle screen on: January 24, 2006, 12:53:48 AM
I did a search for this but got nothing.

My son installed M:TW on his 6 month old dell with 19" ultrasharp LCD.  He's getting most of the screens, but when he goes to combat, the screen is black except for some of the buttons at the top and bottom.  In the black section where the battle screen is supposed to be, he can see a few lines being slowly drawn sometimes.

He got another brand new CD of M:TW and has the same problems.  

His computer can run a host of newer games just fine.  His newest is Call of Duty 2.

Any ideas?

I just had a thought - could this be bacause he is not at the native resolution resolution setting?  He told me he tried several resolution setings, but nothing worked.  I don't know if he tried the native resolution.

PS - he is at his own home, and we are trying to sort this out over the phone, so I can't see exactly what is happening.

After posting earlier, I've been meeting people and traveling all day.  Sending a message to Knightshade Dragon (Ron) right away.

170  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Printer Friendly Views on: November 05, 2005, 12:31:42 PM
I copy threads that are of interest to me for quick future reference.  Some sites such as simhq have a choice to view in printer friendly format.  Any chance of that happening here?

Glad that everything is going well after the transition.  Thanks for keeping these boards up and running.  I visit daily.

EDIT - Thanks for the info.  Glad you are looking at this as a possibility.  Sorry that I double posted over at OO.  I thought that each board would be responsible for their own tech.  I never imagined that the same person would do both sites, so I never even looked.  :oops:

173  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Dell 9100 deal - Frame Rates and possible upgrades? on: August 24, 2005, 10:05:01 PM
Thanks everyone, I gave him some suggestions, so he's on his own now - probably will order today.
174  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Dell 9100 deal - Frame Rates and possible upgrades? on: August 24, 2005, 03:59:28 AM
PhreezePeach -

Do you mean that you kept the 2-256 sticks in there and added 2-512's?  I thought they might all have to match.
175  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Dell 9100 deal - Frame Rates and possible upgrades? on: August 23, 2005, 02:45:08 AM
My son wants to buy a new computer, and I see that Dell is offering this deal now -

DellSmall Business - Dual-Core Capable Dimension 9100 with
3.0Ghz Pentium 4 630 HT
512MB Dual Channel DDR2
128MB ATI Radeon X300 SE PCIe x16
40GB S-ATA
48x CD-Rom
7.1 Audio for $679
with FREE 19" LCD E193FP

He wants to get it for work and FPS gaming.  It looks like a nice price for a moderately capable gaming rig.

Anyone have this rig? What frame rates do you get in Far Cry or similar games?

Any recommendations for upgrades?

I know he wants a DVD burner, so the 16x DVD+/-RW will add $90

I also thought I would suggest that he go for the ultrasharp 1905 FP for $50. Anyone know Dell's policy on returns for dead pixels on the LCD?

He should probably get a gig of RAM for $100.

I think he will want to add the 80 GB HDD for $20 or the 160 for $60.

How about the dual core processor? He can get a 2.8 Ghz for $100 more.

And is the 256 MB ATI X600 SE worth an extra $40?

How does this Small Business deal work? Does he qualify and can he get warranty support without problems?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Mods, Sorry If this is in the wrong forum.

-1 for darrvid.  I sent a game to him with apologies that I was two days late in getting it out.  He has not responded to PMs and I have been waiting 4 months for my package from him.

Welcome, FuronKamikaze -

I think I met you in EB today.  Sorry that the PIFF threads don't have the Core Contingency at this time.  

Here are a few suggestions-

Post over in the trading forums with the title Looking for Core Contingency

Do a search for core contingency and under options, select the trading forum.  Someone offered to do a deal with Vinda-Lou - If they didn't work out a deal, maybe you can.

See you on CG

Anyone hear from darrvid?

I haven't seen feedback from him after I sent him one of the PIFFs he requested.  He also promised to send a PIFF to me.  PMs get no response.

I know he was sick about two months ago, but I hope he is better by now.
183  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Some New hot deals at EBgames.com Updated 6/15 6:40 pm on: June 10, 2005, 03:44:04 PM
Thanks for pointing out that possibility, Jessie.  You scared me for a minute.  I don't want to pass out information that would be misleading.

I went back to the page and read this quote:

Order and receive a bonus content DVD. Bonus DVD includes: Exclusive Interactive Walk-through of an Actual Level, Biographical Information for the In-Game Characters, Behind the Scene Footage of the Making of the Game, and Much More! Bonus item will ship with purchased product, and is only available while supplies last.  (Large font my emphasis)

That makes me think that it is the full game with a bonus that may or may not be available.

If anyone knows for sure, post and let us know.  Until then, buyer beware!

Went looking for the 4.99 Silent Storm bargain and found this page

http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/groups/hotdeals/pcgames.asp

Max Payne & Mafia bundle @1.99
DX:IW                             @1.99
Commandos 3                  @2.99
H&D 2                              @9.99

The 4.99 Silent Storm was gone, so who knows how long these will last?

Hi, warning

Thanks for the update.  Looks like it took a lot of time to compile.  It is much appreciated!

By the way - LE is sending Hegemonia: LoIron to me whan he gets a chance.

Thanks for the update, darrvid.  Glad you're OK now.  I hope the semester ends well.

Glad to know that CC got there OK.

I sent several PMs and haven't heard a thing from you in response.  Did you get the freebie I sent?  Any word on the freebie I claimed from you?

I hope everything is OK with you.

Hi, darrvid -

Glad to send out Close Combat to you.  Still an active mod community for this one.  Send your address if you haven't already.

I'd like to claim IL-2 from you, if you don't mind.  I'll check my karma and update later, but think I'm still on the plus side.

PM incoming soon.

Hi, wankerjr -

Nothing definite. Just let me know what you are willing to trade.
194  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Homeworld 2 available on: March 28, 2005, 02:32:59 PM
Bump.

If you don't have one of the games I listed, offer another.  I have a great collection, but I might not have something from your trading list.

I'm interested in some strategy guides, too.
195  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Homeworld 2 available on: March 19, 2005, 04:47:57 AM
Homeworld 2 in sealed box available. I have several copies.

PM if interested

Especially interested in:

Wings of War
MOH:AA Breakthrough

Maybe others

OK, rob

Thanks for letting me know.
197  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / The GT Pay It Foward Freebies Thread *closing end of 2005* on: March 02, 2005, 09:20:27 PM
Hi, rob -

Is that Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries?  If so, put it aside for me.  

I have the MW: Vengeance title already, so I'll pass and let someone else have Vengeance if that's the one you are offering.

Think I'm + something on Karma, but will edit that in later.
198  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Games are now on ebay. on: January 30, 2005, 08:37:04 PM
Hi, Mirage and Sudy and anyone else-

Go ahead and make a deal on whatever you want.  I changed my mind  on Doom 3.  After reconsidering, I don't have a strong interest in dispatching imps, etc.  I'll pass on LOTR, too - my backlog is HUGE.

As for CoD and the others I mentioned, I already have them - I was just trying for a possible combo so it wasn't a single game deal.

The titles I really want - Ground Control II and Splinter Cell: Pandora Dir. - were not listed, but I put in my dibs in case mirage forgot to put the "II" and the "Pandora Dir" on the end of the titles when he was typing that list.

Summing it up - I'll back out so the rest of you can make some deals and enjoy some great gaming, but I'll leave my original post so the thread still makes sense.
199  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Games are now on ebay. on: January 30, 2005, 05:42:11 AM
I'm interested in Doom 3.  Since you don't want to sell single games, we can find one or two more from the list.  Is Ground Control the original or is it GC II?  Same with Splinter cell - is it the original?  I have the originals of both, but I'm looking for the sequels. CoD or LOTR are two other possibilities if GC and SC are the originals.

Hi, Unbreakable -

Thanks for thinking of me, but I'm a little confused - what's FFXI ?  

RB sent XIII to me (Thanks  biggrin ).

It you are talking about XIII strategy guide, I might be interested.
