Also, for those of you that have used TrackIR. Has anyone used both version 4 and 5?
I currently have V4 and need a new Pro clip thing, but have been thinking about going V5. Is it much better/worth it to upgrade?

Wow.. That's a lot to take in. Much different from my method of just taking off from the first runway I see, pick a direction to fly in, then land at the first airport or major road I see. smile

I'll have to take it slowly I guess.

Are there any FSX addons that would help a complete newb with learning all of this and making actual flight plans/directions, setting the radios, etc... easier to understand? Will I need Skyvector or some other program to actually get all of this info, or is it in FSX somewhere?
I saw you mentioned a GPS thing, would this be a lot easier?
Lastly, Could you make a PDF version of this for me to print out? smile

Thanks.

I've always been into MS Flight Sim, but mostly just to screw around. I just reinstalled the game and purchased those recommend graphics additions along with some others. I haven't actually loaded it yet, since I need to get a small joystick and I will probably replace my broken track ir as well.

If i wanted to learn the basics of navigation and radio communication and such, where would I start?

Also, if they are going to do the hybrid V storyline, doesn't the fact that there have been Vs among us for years- to the point of there being defections within their ranks- kind of kill it? I mean, isn't it likely that there have been hybrids already?

They could always go the route that they're so afraid of getting caught that they avoid any contact with humans.  Add to that the fact that most V's probably wouldn't be physically attracted to humans and it's plausible that there wouldn't be any hybrids already.

Granted, I'm already making excuses for possible plot holes.  biggrin

i dont get these developers, ether do the game right or dont do it at all. Great idea poorly executed is not gonna fool anyone.  Digital disributed games like this live and die by word of mouth, if this game was even decent I would put out 10 bucks, but not gonna bother now.

there's potential here, it's just hard to look past the warts.

I am finding the controls off as well as the camera system.... Definately some potential if they can fix it.... I like the idea at least...

Spoiler for Hiden:
When  they found the air scrubbers borked and needed to repair them with ancient stuff..did anyone else wonder whats in the ancient crates on board the ship? I mean they sent this ship out ahead and planned to join it later. Surely they fully stocked the thing with everything they'd need to repair it with.

Spoiler for Hiden:
That's for the last show...they open everything up and find out that they contain everything they actually needed to get home and fix the ship, including two crates full of ZPM's, and that they didnt need to leave it to begin with.

Well I see you finally picked a char and passed me. It took yo long enough. I stalled at 31 ~9 days ago when quests seriously dried up and I wasn't interested in grinding... and then my wife had a baby and i haven't had a chance (or urge) to get back in.
What level has the baby gotten to?  Has there been any grinding?  What is the nature of the quests?

Well, obviously there was a lot of grinding to get the baby perk....  icon_eek

Ya, I'm up to the Poison Ivy section now and there hasn't been many big "epic" battles in the story portion of the game. I find that the challenge rooms are where the fighting is most fun.

i agree with something chaz said a while back: this game has a lot in common (including the combat mechanics) with mark of kri - a game which focused completely on stealth & mob combat, & basically had no boss battles...

Quote from: Punisher on September 07, 2009, 11:43:58 AM

Well, since this game has been successful, there is no reason they couldn't make Gotham just a bigger AA. we already have random encounters, you can go back and forth everywhere, so that is open world like, etc...

i'd suggest you look at gta4 again, & then either 1) imagine a version of arkham asylum along those graphical lines, or 2) imagine the additional effort that'd be involved in making liberty city as detailed as b:aa(?!)...

like i said earlier, if there has to be a sequel, a group of linked, detailed areas would work for me. but, were the series to go sandbox, it'd become an almost completely different experience - not necessarily a bad thing, but i'd personally far prefer they stick with the approach they've taken - doing more with less, environment-wise (i mean, there's always the gotham city amusement park, right? smile )...

Well, they can just make both... smile as long as they keep the fighting mechanic in place. I really liked that you could do some impressive moves without memorizing 16 button combos. slywink

And the pics from Ceekay's post look pretty good...

Awesome game! I think I would like an open world/GTA/Crackdown type game like this would be great... An overall plot, plus lots of random encounters. Maybe even have some of the minor criminals be random encouters/side missions....

couldn't disagree more - remove the complexity & detail of arkham asylum, & you remove much of what gives the game the character & depth it has...

Go into AA, I felt like Punisher, but I now think semi is absolutely right.

Well, since this game has been successful, there is no reason they couldn't make Gotham just a bigger AA. we already have random encounters, you can go back and forth everywhere, so that is open world like, etc...

Havent seen the last one - I'm not very good with extreme masses of gore just for gores sake, so I'm probably out of this as well...

Ehhh, I wouldn't say 'just for gores sake'.  You hit somebody with a .50 cal round, it does make their squishy parts become airborne squishy parts.  I'd say it is 'horrifically accurate'. 

Sure, but why add the gore at all? At least from the clips I've seen, the movies seems to revolve around making people die as messily as possible... For no other reason than its what attracts the crowd I guess

On my quest to collect/solve all the Riddler challenges I have hit a brick wall in Arkham Mansion. I apparently still need 3 Joker teeth.

Finished it last night on Easy (I usually play everything on Easy, because I don't want to get frustrated playing a game)...

For me, a good indication that I loved the game is the fact that I finished it at all... I probably finish about 20% of the games I start...Of those, many of them I end up cheating through just to finish the story or because the cheating is fun. smile

No cheats with this one, but I did use the strat guide to help find some riddler puzzles.....

I ended up staying late a few times to play just one more section....

I am at 83% complete...the only thing left are some of the challenges....

Awesome game! I think I would like an open world/GTA/Crackdown type game like this would be great... An overall plot, plus lots of random encounters. Maybe even have some of the minor criminals be random encouters/side missions....

You need to go to an actual Best Buy store.. When you get there you need to look for the Champions Pre-Order boxes and see if they have any left. Pay $5 for this and inside is the product key for the headstart. I just did this yesterday for my son...
When the game officially launches, you should get a new product key from D2D. Use this to activate the regular account.

I think they have a right to be upset. Communication left something to be desired

This is where I am upset. They had no problem sending multiple emails my way and mentioning the Sept 1st deadline, why couldn't they start to send out emails saying that they had limited quantities and were running out?

It sucks, I know, but it wasn't misrepresented. There is some noise about it on the official forums so I wouldn't be surprised if they turned it back on. Stay tuned!

Are you sure about this on the actual order page? The only thing I remember seeing was a TIME limited offer, which was Sept 1st. I am kinda pissed right now. I bought mine, but had to wait a little to get my son's. I was actually going to buy it today when I noticed this....

10.36.100  Parking in front of or alongside of another's property--Time limit.
It is unlawful for any person to park any vehicle for a continuous period of more than twenty-four hours on a street within the city in front of or along the side of property belonging to or occupied by another person without the express consent of the owner or occupant. The penalty for violation of this section is provided in Section 10.36.350 of this chapter. See Section 10.06.010(H) of this code concerning the city's power to have vehicles parked in violation of this section removed.


Sweet.  Time to get that bitch's car towed.
Actually, I doubt this.
1) You need to prove that the car is there for 24 hours STRAIGHT. If she moves for 1/2 hour, time starts again...
2) She is technically parking next to her house and this may be seen as parking along the side of her house.

#1 is going to be the sticky one. She can just co-ordinate with her friends and shuffle the cars around...
IIRC, these type of laws are usually meant for out of towners and such. She lives there.
