441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 (xbox demo) on: July 08, 2005, 02:56:23 PM
I got my copy of OXM that had the BF2 demo on it last week... For the guy above the other demo was Pirates. I've yet to try the BF2 demo with the Halo2 map pack being released and all....

It says BattleField 2: Modern Combat on the mag I'm pretty sure, but anyhow I use a KB&M on my xbox with the SmartJoy Frag.


you too? heh smile The only downside is sometimes vehicular controls are messed up.

For instance in Halo2, driving is HARD using keyboard and mouse based on the systems expectation.

here's a visual.

analog X axis   L------------------------[deadzone]----------------------R
when driving if you are going to turn right around, you hold hard L or R on analog and they have an equivilant to mouse-accelleration where you speed up once it's been held for a certain amount of time. (less than a second).

With a mouse, you would just whip it left or right, taking miliseconds. To turn with around while in a vehicle you need to drag the mouse at a decent speed for much longer to get the same turning effect.

Since BF2 plays much like Halo2, I expect the same problems with controls.


I used to have problems driving in Halo2, but I now have a seperate SmartJoy profile for driving. In the driving profile I have the deadzone cranked up to ~80 and it makes it much easier to drive. So when I jump in a vehicle I hit <F2> and when I exit the vehicle I hit <F1>, simple as that.

Just got the August issue of OXM and it has a XBL enabled demo of BF2. Didn't get a chance to try it yet. If anyones tried it, let the impressions roll.

446  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Do the bots make BF2 a worthy singleplayer game? on: June 21, 2005, 01:07:46 PM
Dont remember what review I read it in, but it said that single player was limited to 16 bots and that with that small number aircraft usually didn't come into play.

You guys see they have a new 24" widescreen LCD? Little over $1000 though.


Yeah, I saw that but for $1000, forget it. I'm happy with my $397 20" screen. smile

It's plenty big enough for me and a big step up over my 19" CRT. I am still amazed how damn good everything looks now. It's made everyone of my games feel almost new, due to the improved color and clarity. It's really awesome.


Ditto...

I don't have firsthand experience with this but I've read that many games disable transferring saves in the dashboard even when the saves would technically be small enough to fit on the memory card.


Ninja Gaiden is one. Had to start all over when I got a new xbox since I couldn't copy the save to a mem card.

451  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2 Playlist Update & Stats Reset Tomorrow on: May 04, 2005, 12:17:24 AM
Just a FYI for the Halo 2 fans. Tomorrow morning the matchmaking playlists will be updated to include the new maps released last week and everyone's stats will be reset to level 1 due to the rampant cheating before the last auto update.

452  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!
453  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!

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?
