441  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Dell LCD Monitor Questions on: April 28, 2005, 11:49:39 AM
wOOt! Got my 2005 FPW yesterday and it looks awesome especially since there are no dead/stuck pixels and no backlight bleeding that bother me. The bad news is that playing Halo2 through the x2vga looks better on my CRT than the new LCD which is probably due to the LCD stretching the 480p output to fit the screen. I ended up putting the 2005 on my Mac Mini and it looks great on it. I have gobs of desktop space to use iMovie & iDVD!
442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DLC (Maps) for Halo 2 are out! on: April 25, 2005, 05:01:57 PM
You can now download two maps for free and two more $5.99. I just downloaded all four and did a short walkthough of each and they seem pretty cool. Cant wait to get back home and try some custom games on them tonight.

Does the X2VGA really work that well?

Yes it does! I dont have any games that use 720p or 1080i, but halo 2 in 480p looks awesome on my 19" CRT, much better than the TV plus I use a SmartJoy FRAG KB&M adapter for the xbox and it works out well having everything at a desk...

Check out this site for overclocking, especially the forums:

http://www.overclockers.com

If your mobo came in a pc like a Dell, you wont be able to overclock it as Intel branded mobo's dont give you the options to do it.

That said I've been running my P4 3.0c at 3.5ghz stable for about a year now us a ABit AI7 mobo.

I cant wait for my 2005 FPW to come, ordered it yesterday for 438.00 shipped! Although, I missed the uber deal this lcd on Thursday could be had for 384.00 shipped using some stackable cupons.....

Anyhow I cant wait to try Halo 2 on it in 480p widescreen using my x2vga!

Can anyone positively confirm/deny that SC:CT on xbox has support for 480P? I use an X2VGA to connect my xbox to my monitor and games have to atleast support 480P for it to work.

Holy shit! Picked this up yesterday and had a blast with it last night. I dont care if it is only ~10hrs, its worth every penny for the gameplay. I thnk this is what I'll be playing until DLC arrives for Halo2.

I'm waitin on my brother to send me my demo copy (got two with a preorder). He was talking about some characters having special abilities and one he mentioned was wall jumping.



Quote from: "Bullwinkle"
I've been playing the Unreal Championship 2 demo from OXM, and I'm enjoying it (looks amazing and plays very smoothly), but I'm missing something.  I've been watching people wall jump.  There's one map in particular which has a numebr of close walls set up reaching rather high and I've seen the AI jump back and forth and get up there, going all Mario.  Anyone figure out how to do this?

It doesn't matter if it shipped from alaska, they have a nexus in your state therefore they legally have to charge you tax. We've been going through this here at work as well, since we are now part of a larger company that has nexus all over the country.

Any impressions yet Purge? What about live, can you use it when playing multiplayer?


Not yet... I didn't think Half-Life2 would suck me in as much as it did. slywink I'll try it out this weekend; I'm on call this week and between pages I'm in HL2. biggrin


Thats exactly the same thing thats kept me from trying it myself. I'm on the prison level right now (hard).

479  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Valve bans Pirates on: November 23, 2004, 07:00:17 PM
Sounds like people who even bought a legit steam package were banned if they had used one of the warez keys on that account at any time. I see many CC chargebacks coming for Valve and from what I've been told you can get your merchant account cancelled. I also smell a class action lawsuit coming as well.

POS.  

I am sure that if this problem becomes a known one Valve will nicely put out a message on their server saying that it was all VUs fault and that Valve didn't have anything to do with the production of the game.


When you installed it did you happen to deselect CS: Source?? If so there is a known problem in the retail non collectors edition install that causes an install error if CS: Source isn't selected.
