Ok, trying to play for first time, getting an error "Failed to create render device - application will now terminate". Any idea what drivers etc are required? Mine haven't been updated in a while probably, but I don't recall any similar issues... Can my system even work?

I also have an older system that is obviously not ideal (though I could re-download to my wife's which is a bit newer).

Athlon XP 2800
1GB ram
Radeon X800 GTO

first off, I assume you'r running xp? Vista needs 2gb ram to run the game, I seem to remember, and generally, you'd be a lot better of with some more ram. Rendering devices is your graphics card, you should always update that to the newest edition of driver - both for perfomance but also for it to actually work with newer games :-)

Devs said the intro was supposed to run like a tutorial, breaking you easy into the game, thus, the first level is of course, pretty easy to deal with. I imagine, that as you start out without major powers, and have to earn them, the game gets harder. Also, for me the storyline is a huge part of wanting to play this game.

One of the reasons I loved MGS4 and Assasins Creed, was the storylines in them.

Anyways, downloading the demo now, cant wait!!

Good luck in the preview weekend, guys! be sure to post your impressions here :-)

as usual though (whine follows), EU gets screwed over, since the preview took the euro partner GOA by surprise...sigh... Which doesnt bode well for the european release as I see it, when something as simple as this wasnt communicated...
7686  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Warhammer Online headed to Open Beta on 9/7 on: August 21, 2008, 11:13:58 AM
seems to me like a pointless argument...you feel that way - fine, other feel another way, also fine.

I for one am very excited - of course, my prediction is that exactly the same will happen in this game for me, as in any other MMO. I'll play it like mad, post stuff here like mad for a few months, then, I'll cancel the subscribtion, and return to it every other odd month, and have some fun. The game looks good enough for some continued fun, the same way WoW and vanguard has given me.

The only thing that could really keep me in it, is a great rp guild, and some RP support from War as well, giving a few options to really rp the way Warhammer fantasy RP is supposed to be rp'ed :-)

7688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bladestorm Impressions on: August 20, 2008, 03:55:32 PM

Sooo...I'm actually considering this game again now, since I LOVED the demo...

Anyone who can tell me if ther'es more to it than the demo?

not so surprising, although, the first part of my last paragraph is the true prophecy it seems... ;-)

Holy moses, you guys do an awesome job of doing a great write-up on this! thanks a lot!
I can already tell, my pre-order wasnt in vain :-)

A few questiosn though, about servers - are there any RP servers? How many character slots can you have on each server? or how does that work? Also, will it be possible to have both order and Destruction toons on the same server? Thanks! and keep up the good work!

yeah, saw the us site had opened up for beta code entering now - good luck with that, guys :-)

Us euro'es will have to wait it seems, until they deem it important enough to update the euro site with the same options...

for any europeans interested in what/whens for the euro part of the game, take a look here, where an offical GOA q&a is located

http://www.only-war.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=26834

I still say that if I was you, I'd gamble on playing on the US servers with a US copy of the game.  You'd have greater lag, but you'd be playing with such good people. slywink
I'm very tempted, actually! I still fondly remember the battles I've had with some of you guys in Battlefield 2 :-)

But, I pre-ordered the euro version, and until I know, whether the lag is an issue, I'll stick with that :-)

Thanks for the news.

So when are you guys going to be able to really start spilling the beans on this?  Soon I hope?

NDA drops tomorrow morning. File is available for download from Fileplanet.com and if you're a subscriber you'll be able to participate in a limited beta test this coming weekend.

really? where did you read this little tidbit of information? About the fileplanet limited beta test? I'm a member, but dont see it anywhere

So, anyone else saw the video for this? Linger in shadows? I've tried digging up some more info on it, and there is a lot of diverging information about it. Some say its a Demo (as in demo from the demoscene), others claim its a prelude to some game...

anyone else know anything about it? The music is awesome, and its rather interesting to look at as well..

oh and btw, if anyone recognizes the music, please let me know what it is!

edit: Okay, pretty sure I found it in the games catagory now...so, a game it should be!!

just saw the E3 movie of in-game goodness of the new Prince of Persia...downloaded over PS3 store. I've always loved these games, right back to the C64 one..always oozing atmosphere and just general coolness...

The new art direction is pretty interesting, and I must say, I'm a bit excited about this...Looks rather much like a cartoon movie now actually, and I think it will work pretty dang well!

eh, am I the only one reading that as "A Murder of Cows"??

anyways, I love 4x games, but have never been able to get into these games..maybe I should give it a whirl again...

anyone mind telling me what the difference is between this kind of game, and games like MAster of Orion kinda games?

Well, I think there's a good chance I might prefer the concept over the expression at this stage.

I'm guessing the North American beta workedout for you then?

anyways, the european website is half-finished it seems. The codes your recieve from buying the pre-order, cant even be registered at the site yet...
7710  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: The Wanderers & Warhammer Online on: August 14, 2008, 06:02:54 AM
I've heard the orcs have nipples you can play with though...

Bought the pre-order, and got the codes last night...unfortunately, the site was down all day..sigh...

Any word yet on open beta?

well, the first book would be cool actually on film...that I'm pretty sure of. and if they could round it off nicely, without it being too much of a cliffhanger, that should work with the great unwashed masses as well...

Yeah, the game is freakishly hard at times...especially, since, there is only a definite amount of enemies to "level-up-on" on each map, making it really hard, if you dont survive and gain levels...

Does anyone know what the art style is called? I'm actually looking for some new paintings and would love the same style, but I just cant put my bony finger on what the art style could be called...

I've noticed lately, that a lot of people crosspost, and even make us aware of it.

Why do you do so? It kinda seems funny to me, since its the same posts that are here, and on OO, and the same people, and lots of times, the same responses...

should we just go ahead and make a function that posts on both forums at the same time?

btw..this is crossposted over at OO

And personally, I have two dates: Right before the next Star Trek movie launches (May of 2009 if I remember right)

I don't think they could safely rush it out that quickly;  that'd be a 16 month development cycle for a MMO.

sure,. but, 4 years doesnt exactly either make a great MMO everytime... I dont think its a matter of production time, but more production values...

it's ridicously good and cool looking, so yeah, day one purchase for me as well...the gameplay can be hellish if it wants to, as long as I get to drool over the amazing artwork, oozing atmosphere...

its really strange, because, I cant put a finger on the style...its not normal fantasy, nor gothic, its...well, disciples!
