201  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Age of Conan Q&A thread on: January 25, 2009, 12:06:09 AM
is there a way to "re-do" the feat points I have spent while in Tortage? I have asked in-game, but nobody seems to either not know, or not care to answer the question.

Chris
202  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Age of Conan Q&A thread on: January 22, 2009, 02:29:40 PM
I am finally in the game. I found my disks, so I didn't have to download that huge file.

I am on the Cimmeria server (I think). My character's name is Kainath (Cimmerian Barbarian). So far, I am impressed. I am getting hardly no system lag and my settings are set to high other than shadows have been turned off. I still need to mess around with the graphics though, cause I get just a little choppiness, especially in Tortage. But really, the game seems much more stable than it did back in the summer.

203  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Age of Conan Q&A thread on: January 19, 2009, 08:44:17 PM
well....I would take the free trial if someone has it. I am interested in trying the game out again.

Chris
204  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Age of Conan Q&A thread on: January 19, 2009, 08:32:18 PM
Is there an actual client download for this? I bought the game back when it came out, but uninstalled it after my first month. Now, looking to try it again, but I cannot find the disks. They are not where all my other games are at for some reason.

Not even looking for a free trial (though, if someone has one, I would take it if you wanted me to have it :-) )

Anyways, I know that I can re-buy the game for 40 bucks and get the digital download, but I cannot seem to find a download for the client itself for past subscribers.

Any help?

Thanks

I finally got it to patch. Didn't really do anything different on the 3rd install, but it finally let me patch it all up. So, I am all up to date.

Thanks

how do I patch this game? 

I had installed it, and "activated" it. The Patcher says that it cannot locate the URL or something. So, I download the patches manually. It hangs, then says that a certain file cannot be found to be deleted, then closes out. I reinstall, try to do the patch again, but now it says that the game cannot be found on my computer, and the patch closes.

How do I patch this thing?

I'm not so against a cost of living increase. They could very publicly decide to forgo the increase this year, though, and look good.

Yeah I'd take a $4700 "cost of living" pay raise every year too! (Since clearly, $169,000 just isn't cutting it anymore.)



They may make a lot of money, but they spend a lot of money too.

Bonus points for someone who gets the reference.



In all seriousness, $169K is not a terribly large amount of money and the COL increase isn't something to get that worked up about.  Most Congresspersons could easily make more than this amount in the private sector, so paying them like pay for like work is fine by me.

Then I wish they would go to the private sector, so someone who will actually do something can get into Congress.
209  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40k: Assault on Black Reach on: November 11, 2008, 12:10:43 PM
so, what do you use for terrain when you don't have any "official" terrain?

I have a friend coming over thursday evening to start playing Warhammer 40k, but I really don't have any terrain. Not to mention all I have is what came with the Assault on Black Reach set.

How many different types of fights can you have using that box set?

Chris
210  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40k: Assault on Black Reach on: November 07, 2008, 03:53:40 PM
Ok....gameplay question.

Orks vs. Space Marines.

7 Space Marines let loose with a volley of boltgun fire, landing 5 hits. Out of those 5 hits, 3 rolls to wound. Now what do I do? This is where I get stuck. Armor Piercing confuses me quite a bit for some reason. The Ork Boyz have a sv of 6+, the bolt gun has an AP of 5. From how I am reading it, I automatically take away 3 Orc Boyz due to them not getting a saving throw because of the Marines' AP rating for their weapons. Am I correct? Or does Armor Piercing play a different role? Not sure....

Chris
211  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Warhammer 40k: Assault on Black Reach on: November 06, 2008, 12:11:52 PM
So, I finally made the plunge into Warhammer 40k. I have been checking out a couple of the books (for the miniatures game) from a friend from work, and the more I read about it, the more I found it interesting. I found a store that both sells and plays the games, so I purchased the box starter set, Assault on Black Reach.

Wow.

There are two armies included, a Space Marines army and an Orks army. Both are pretty small, but they are both a good start. Some very cool  miniatures, and from what I have been told, the Deffkopters (the Orkish helicopters) can only be found in the box set).

I have been reading the rules, and it is kinda difficult reading in some places. Today, I will be going back to that store, to maybe have someone walk me through a battle.

Looking forward to getting more into the game, though.

but....they are also putting (most likely) another class in it's place.

ppl in my guild are hoping that the Hammerer will be the one dropped, and replaced with the Dwarf Slayer.

That would be really cool...

I like the "need" for loot change. The other night, something popped up that would have been an upgrade for my Marauder....but the Dark Elf Sorceress went with "need" and won....
214  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WoW joins the dustbin... on: October 09, 2008, 02:05:33 AM
there has only been maybe a handful of quests in WAR that I needed a group (as a Marauder). Not sure, but I am even thinking those that I was grouped up while doing probably could have been done solo. No, wait, I take that back. I have a quest right now where I gotta kill a Hero in Troll Country, that I will need some help with. Other than that, though....PQ's are the only thing I have ever really needed a group for in PvE.

And, as for RvR/PvP....I have always HATED pvp in other MMO's. But in WAR...it is so incredibly natural. I absolutely LOVE RvR, and will jump into a group fighting open RvR whenever there is a fight going on. WAR does pvp the right way, I think.

(btw, you'll only have to kill 10 bears, as each has a head)),

It is nice to have a "get X animal bits" quest and just be able to kill x animals.  No more animals walking around without teeth or pelts or other essential animal bits is definitely a good thing.

Not to mention...that if you kill those bears before you get the quest, once you do get the quest, those previous kills COUNT (at least, it sure does seem as though it does. I wandered into a new area, but killed several boars on teh way there. I got a quest to kill boars for meat, and it was immediately ready to complete as soon as I accepted it).

I have a 40 gig PS3. I am wanting to get Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (which is on the PS2). Does anyone know if it works on the 40 gig PS3?

Well...also, how do I know what, if any, games works on the PS3?

219  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Silverfall crashing on start up? on: July 21, 2008, 09:31:27 PM
something is strange. the game(s) have been updating and updating and updating some more. Silverfall took over 5 hours to update, and now it seems as though the exe is not even there. It looks as though the Earth Awakening exe has taken over. Now, that game is updating, has been for about 6 hours, and still needs another 2.5 hours to finish. I have never had problems like this with Steam....

Chris
220  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Silverfall crashing on start up? on: July 21, 2008, 12:32:32 PM
Just purchased and installed Silverfall (and the expansion) from Steam. But, the game will simply not load up at all.

"Silverfall.exe has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

That is all I get. Any ideas? I am running Vista...meet and surpass the other requirements. Although, not sure I have the Aegis PhysX stuff. Where do I find that?

Thanks

Oh, I am loving this game. I am, by no means, a baseball fanatic. I do like watching baseball, but I just....don't. I started out pretty horrible, but now my guy is batting right around .300 somewhat consistently. This is a fun game, especially the Road to the Show mode.

Chris
222  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MLB 08 The Show - questions and comments on: June 21, 2008, 05:34:31 PM
I have 3 questions.

1. How in the world do I do a Hit & Run? I have had to try 4 times, and everytime, I end up getting the "Not Attempted" result. When should I try to run, and HOW do I run?

2. How do I draw 9 walks through 6 series? That is one of my achievement goals, and I cannot figure out how to force a pitcher to walk me.

3. Why are the Akron Aeros in the middle of a desert? I am playing for the AA team, the Akron Aeros, and their home field is out in the middle of the desert. Shouldn't they be in Akron, Ohio? As far as I know (and I lived there nearly all my life), there are no deserts in Akron.

I am loving this game, to be honest. But the Hit and Run thing is really messing me up, and needing to walk 9 times is something that I just do not see happening.
223  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Total Extreme Wrestling '08....RELEASED on: June 13, 2008, 02:18:18 PM
The game itself is nearly an entirely new beast. The basics are still there, but there are vastly new additions and new concepts.

For one thing, storylines actually mean something. Storylines are broken down by segments, and ending a storyline before completing it will cause a penalty.

Example: I have a storyline going between my #2 champion and one of the more popular guys on my roster. To start this particular storyline, I needed to figure out 5 ppl to be involved (the good guy/major role; the bad guy/major role; good guys main ally/supporting role; bad guys main ally/supporting role; bad guys hired gun/supporting role).

There are a total of 24 steps in this storyline, with the first one being "The arguement that starts it", with the 2nd step being "wrester 1 (main role good guy) defeats wrestler 2 (main role bad guy)". Both of those steps took place on my last show. The next step will be "wrestler 2 gets revenge for the loss", which will need to be an attack angle with the following roles: main role good guy is the victim, main role bad guy is an attacker, and main bad guy's ally is also an attacker.

Now that I have committed to this storyline, It will hurt my promotion and image if I just suddenly quit it. This forces the player to be careful about who he puts into storylines (wrestlers can be signed away). And, the type of storylines and angles are rated on what type of angles they are. In a traditional type fed, one based on more traditional wrestling (think from the 70s and early-mid 80's), then a sexual angle will most likely not go over very well with your fan base.

I seem to remember storylines not really meaning much in the earlier versions, but in the current versions.....they are important. Gimmicks are the same thing....some gimmicks simply will not work out very good in certain promotion types.

Other new things....

 - Owner goals. The promotion owner that you work for (if you do not own the promotion), will give you goals that you gotta work around. Right now, I have 5 owner goals....(1) my promotion must not fall below "small" size at any point (2) Shawn Gonzalez (one of my workers) must have reached at least B grade momentum by the end of 17 months (3) I cannot hire or extend the contract of any wrestler who has less than D- in Safety (4) I cannot hire or extend the contract of any wrestler who has less than D- in Charisma (5) and the last goal is, I cannot hire or extend the contract of any wrestler who has less than D- in Selling

 - a wrestler's past matches are recorded, even from other promotions, along with their former title reigns

Along with what I mentioned, there are lots of things he has done differently with the newest version. There used to be a topic on their forums of many of the changes and additions he had added, leading up to the release of the game, but I cannot seem to find it now....

But, yeah, the game is much "bigger".
224  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MLB 08 The Show - questions and comments on: June 10, 2008, 11:07:12 PM
I am getting this tonight (and I am on vacation for 9 days after tonight).

I downloaded the demo, and really enjoyed it. One demo game, went up to 7 innings. I had a guy on 2nd and 1st, hit what shoud have been a double, but the guy running to 3rd didn't continue to home, and the guy on 2nd got stuck, while the hitter ran on to 2nd, causing the 3rd out. Not sure what happened there....but I could have won that game....I was trying to get the 3rd baseman to run on to home, but it was a no-go for some reason.

225  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Total Extreme Wrestling '08....RELEASED on: June 09, 2008, 01:10:34 AM
wrestling fans in this game are very fickle, just like the wrestling fans in real life. Just let them sit....or use them as managers/valets or something along that line, maybe.....

as far as "personality" goes...not sure....you might find the answer to that on their message boards....

Chris
226  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Total Extreme Wrestling '08....RELEASED on: June 09, 2008, 12:01:40 AM
lol....

well, there is a help file that kinda is a tutorial. But, yes, I know what you are saying. The only reason I have any idea what is going on, is I have bought nearly every version.

But, this is one of those games that if you can make it past the initial "huh, what?", it is a game that delivers on so many levels. There are mods (or, there will be) that adds actual wrestlers. One of the best mods, in my opinion, is the Death of the Territories mod, which takes place right around StarCade '83 (when Ric Flair beat Harley Race for the NWA World Title in the cage).

The thing about this game, though, is that it is pretty wide open. You can play two games, using the same promotion, and each experience will be very different.

I am not sure anyone here would even remotely be interested....but, in case anyone is, this game has been released

link: http://www.greydogsoftware.com/tew2008/

What is this game? Wrestling, behind the scenes. You are the "Head Booker", and you have to deal with pretty much everything in a wrestling promotion. From hiring & firing of talent, to setting up tv show deals, ppv deals, to setting up the matches/storylines on those shows/ppv's. You set the gimmicks and the push of the different talent....then you gotta deal with the "backroom politics" of professional wrestling. The different egos and attitudes, relationships, ect of the different workers.

Anyways....if anyone is interested, go check out the link.

I searched the net looking for the latest versions for Supreme Commander and Forged Alliance. I really only want the updated version of SC because I wanna go through the campaign. But it was still a bit hard to find it.

But, I think I am finally updated....finally.

I bought Supreme Commander Gold last night....and I have never had so much trouble trying to update a game than I have with this one. Everytime I go into GPGOnline, it downloads a patch, applies it, then shuts down. I go back into it, and it re-downloads the same patch, reapplies the same patch, then shuts down. Is there a trick or something to patching Supreme Commander or Supreme Commander Foreged Alliance? I am wanting to play through the campaign of the first game, but I cannot figure out how to update it. And as far as playing online goes, I cannot even get into the game because it keeps updating the game over and over again.

Anyone have any ideas?

A: As long as the email address you used while purchasing Mount&Blade is still valid, you can recover your lost serial key from this page.

I just had mine sent to me, who can bother to look for it  icon_biggrin


Where is that page at? I sent them an email several days ago, and haven't recieved anything. I bought the game awhile back, but my pc crashed and died, and I simply cannot find the key (thought i had it written down with some other serial keys). I am at their site, but I cannot find a faq or anything....maybe on their forums.....will check that.

I pre-ordered the special edition last week at gamestop, traded in some games, and only paid $4.19 for the game.

I have a PS3, so I was thinking that all the PS3 players could somehow let each other know who we are. Maybe not its' own thread, but somehow, we should all get hooked up, since the PS3 is the minority.
