System Specs

P 4 2.6C HT
Giga-byte dual BIOS/dual circuit MOBO PAT 875 chipset
1 GB Kingston Hyper X 433 MHz Ram (OCd) running in dual channel mode
On-board sound
ATi 9500 Pro 128 MB 5.2 Cats (last supported version)
WinXP Pro SP2
7200 Seagate w/ 8 MB cache
ANTEC True Power 480 Watt PS
RaidMax aluminum case w/ 5 whisper cool ball bearing case fans

B2 recommended settings was everything on low and 800x600
Tried resetting to 1024 and the game relaunched in 800x600


Your specs are better than mine. The default was 800x600 for me, too. Apparently, you need to change the settings and then hit "apply" for them to save. Also, every time you create a new profile you'll need to change the settings again.

I was able to try out single player, but only at a max of 800X600 guess my ATi 9500 Pro ain't cutting it, going to get BFG 6800 GT today.


I've got a 9500 Pro and was able to run the MP fine at 1024x768. What are your other specs?

2366  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo Revolution downloads free? on: June 08, 2005, 01:16:50 PM
Well that's a disappointment. How is the proposed plan any different than Nintendo's current practice of selling old games (on GBA) or giving them away with other games (Animal Crossing)?
2367  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / BF1942? [update2] still problems... on: June 08, 2005, 01:13:00 PM
Though I haven't played it for awhile, I'm sure that there are still a good number of people online (especially since it seems the majority of people didn't like BF:Vietnam as much as the original).

As for mods, the most common one would be Desert Combat which sets the game in modern times. Off the top of my head, I can think of a Vietnam mod that was ok, a Pirates mod that was not nearly complete when I tried it two years ago, and a Star Wars mod that seemed decent but was just beginning when I quit playing.

2. Was Danielle's warning about "the Others" completely false? Yeah, she heard voices.. but aren't we led to believe SHE started the black smoke fire in an effort to get Turnip Head?

3. We were supposed to see part of the "creature" according to a post above. We did? You mean that freaky black smoke we saw two times? I wouldn't say that's "seeing" the creature. frown


I think the "Others" did light the fire. There were no footprints in the sand because they lit it from the boat. Danielle thought that by bringing the child to them, she could get her own child back.

There was a brief glimpse of the "creature" when it was pulling Locke. It looked like a long, retractable arm of a machine (with a clamp on the end).

2371  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 more powerful than the PS3? on: May 21, 2005, 12:41:25 PM
As mentioned, it's pretty silly to assume that what's printed is completely accurate considering that it comes from Microsoft itself. On top of that, the preface to the article mentions that MS just changed some of the specs for the X-Box 360 (as a response to what they may have seen from the PS3?); who's to say that Sony won't change the PS3 specs sometime down the road?
2372  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Nintendo Revolution on: May 20, 2005, 02:07:56 PM
This isn't encouraging (from IGN interview:

Quote
IGNcube: Can we expect Nintendo to collaborate with more third parties on Revolution games?

Shigeru Miyamoto: At this point, we've only been talking with a few companies. However, if other companies come forward and they want to join us to work with us to create games, of course that would be great for us. One thing we want to make sure that we don't do is have too many games of the same type or genre. We don't want too many games involving the same themes or characters.


Sounds like there might be, once again, a dearth of 3rd party support.
2373  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow FOR DS. *sigh* on: May 19, 2005, 08:39:50 PM
I think that certain 2D games could sell on the consoles, though. If another 2D Castlevania, another 2D Mario, or another 2D Metroid was made, I'd bet that it would sell pretty well. Unfortunately, I believe that only established franchises could do reasonably well with a 2D game.
2374  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Backwards compatible (NOT) on: May 19, 2005, 07:15:21 PM
Isn't the PS3 just as if not more different in architecture from the PS2 than the X-Box 360 is from the first X-Box? Why is it Sony can make their system truly backwards compatible but MS can not?  :?:
2375  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No surprise announcements this year? on: May 19, 2005, 01:14:00 PM
I think the Mini Gameboy was a bit of a surprise. Most had suspected that a new, upgraded Gameboy would be released at the end of the year, not just a different version of the current GB.

Yeah if the Cube can pump out RE4 and that new Zelda graphics, then I'm not worried about 2-3 times better than that.


But it's all about the competition. If Revolution can't compete graphically with the X-Box 360 and PS3, Nintendo will have a hard time making up much ground.

After watching the Sony video, I'm looking forward tothe PS3 more than the X-Box 360. Even games I don't care about (like Gundam) looked pretty damn cool. Of the announced titles for the next  X-Box, nothing really excites me.

Have you guys checked out the video of Killzone from the Gamespot video? If not, check it out - it's freaking amazing (and looks like in game footage, from what I can tell). If you click on the video of the Sony presentation, it begins around 1:33 (that's one hour, thirty three minutes in).

According to Gamespot we should be getting footage soon of Metal Gear Solid 4, Devil May Cry 4, Gran Turismo 5, Getaway 3,  Tekken 6, and another Killzone.


For the PS3 or the PS2?

Man, if that's the PS3 (and I have serious doubts that it is, given how early it is), then I'm right out.  No way I'm setting up a system vertically in my setup, and that sure doesn't look like it's made to be set down flat.


I would guess that the bottom of it would be flat.

Quote from: "Sparhawk"
My PC, Xbox, and PS2 are all hooked up to my TV. So, I am so confizzled as to what to do.

Though, by the time the X360 comes out my PC will be weak as sin compared to the X360. Haven't heard ANYTHING about new graphic cards for PC's and whatnot. So I'm not sure if I should upgrade some stuff now or later...*Sighs*


From what I have heard, PC's won't have anything until early 2007 that can do what the Xbox 360's graphics card can do.


Is the graphics card for the new X-Box going to have more features that it can do (i.e. pixel shading, etc), or is it just more powerful than the current cards?

2396  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I can't find it anywhere, Is Xbox360 backwards compatible? on: May 13, 2005, 05:36:32 PM
It looks like it may be backwards compatible.

Quote
However, the video did contain some footage that Microsoft didn't want the public to see. Namely, the several shots of current-generation Xbox games--including MX vs. ATV Unleashed and Halo 2--being played on the Xbox 360, which means that, at least in the testing stage, it is backward compatible. There is also a screenshot of the new Xbox Live dashboard with the words "Xbox 1 Zone" clearly marked and an icon of the current Xbox title Fable. Finally, a screenshot of the forthcoming Xbox Live Marketplace clearly shows Halo 2 maps being offered for download.


Might make sense why the HD is now standard for all X-Box 360 consoles.

Yep, I can't believe they didn't show it on the MTV show. Oh well, next week we will get to see it in motion, cause the devs have confirmed a trailer will be released next week for the game.
Yes there will be a trailer and it will floor you.  I know because I did about 90% of the footage for it.


Can't you just show it to us now? We're all brothers here.....  :wink:

Almost all the game footage seemed to be pre-rendered and not in game (minus Perfect Dark and Tony Hawk), did it not? Really hard to tell anything about the games based on the 30 minutes of fluff.
2399  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 05/11/05 on: May 12, 2005, 07:40:29 PM
But there's no reason to think that "it" got out before - perhaps once  it was put into the vault it stayed in the vault  (it didn't necessarily come from the vault originally).

Plus, who's to say that there's a latch on the inside? Perhaps there's no handle on either side of the vault.

New theory - maybe the vault is something like Pandora's Box. The light that shone through the vault's window seemed a lot like the light coming from Marcellus' suitcase in Pulp Fiction.

Or maybe I've just been playing too much God of War.  :wink:

In the previews for next week, they showed the raft being pushed into the water (though never actually making it to the water). Then the showed Sawyer running around in the jungle. I don't know if those clips are in chronological order, but I got the feeling that the raft doesn't make it out.
