wow - Nature really has better graphics than Vanguard even, it seems ;-)

Makes me appriciate living in a "dull" country, with no naturally occuring disasters, but it looks so impressive nonetheless!

thanks for sharing - think I'll wallpaper a few of these :-)

AoC sucks!!!  icon_twisted

hehe, nah, just kidding - I actually liked it, just giving it some time to mature, and see how it develops...and meanwhile, I'll continue to post things about my current favorite MMO..

Prediction: In 4 months, I'll be posting like crazy about Warhammer, saying how great it is, having bought it day one....then, after a month, I'll give up in disgust, and start playing AoC, telling everyone how it matured and how the developers really care ;-)

Give and take, consideration for ones SO is the major issue here, and its not an issue for the grand court to make legislation off...

Dont let every little thing be the "OMG haxxors my life" incident...its just life, you deal with it on a daily basis, not on some sort of "grand-scale"...

oh, I forgot to add, Seradon is highest population server right now , thus making grouping a lot easier - mark hit "Medium" server population last night :-)
7845  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Vanguard] GT/OO Guild on: July 01, 2008, 12:58:14 PM
All my now 12 characters are on Seradon, and I know many others have characters there now as well... Of course, if people want so, please go ahead, I know I'm going to stay there though :-)

oh, and both I , Reemul and one more was in GT last night ;-)

Hi all,
was talking to Reemul the other night, about making a GT/OO guild.

Would the upcoming weekend be a good time forpeople to be online, so that we can make the guild?

Also, feel free to post any ideas for whatever name we should pick for ourselves :-)
7847  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Vanguard]how to get in touch with each other on Seradon on: June 30, 2008, 09:36:44 PM
Weel, Reemul and I am in the channel right now . just need 4 more people to make the guild, so comeon! join GT and lets make the guild! ;-)
7848  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [Vanguard]how to get in touch with each other on Seradon on: June 30, 2008, 06:17:53 PM
you can also just type / and then the channel number

Tentonhammer has a lot of usefull information.

but, if I were you, I'd compile my questions, and post them on the offical forums. VG has the best and most mature community I've ever seen, and they are very good at answering peoples questions

A question more - someone mentioned reinforcing the drum pedal, how does one go about doing that?

and DAMN some of those songs make use of the bigbang drum a lot!!

get a thin, but not too thin piece of wood and screw it down on the pedal. or buy one of those pedal covers from amazon. i would just order a destroyer if you wanna get into hard and expert. i can not express how much those rock.

a...destroyer?? Like in a Star Destroyer?

Anyways, please join the GT channel, and lets get a guild going ASAP :-)

The other good thing is all the new players are low level, most didn't play it long enough to get any high level toons. So plenty of activity at the lower levels.

Reemul, I tried adding you,and last you were online, was 2007 according to the friends panel?

Hi all,

I just figured this out - when you enter the game, type /join GT

then you'r in the GT channel, and we can keep track of each other and all our alts (I have ten, hehe)

hope to see you all there!!

oh, btw, afterwards, I think you can type /autojoin and select GT as a channel to join every time!

What do you mean make it like Singstar?  If you mean have two people sing at once, you can do that if you have two mics (any USB mic should work).  There's two head to head modes, both under the Quickplay option (I think).  Score duel has both players playing the whole song at the same difficulty, highest score wins.  Tug of War has them trading back and forth (like Singstar), they can play at different difficulties, and there's a meter to show who's winning. 

If you mean making it like Singstar where the note tubes don't scroll across the screen, you can pause the game with the controller and turn on static vocal style, which is pretty much the same as Singstar.  Though I'd strongly recommend getting used to the default scrolling vocals, as it's much easier to get the rhythm right, I think.

meant more microphones and people singing in some sort of duel yes, and thanks for the answers..the GF is going to be ecstatic about that ;-)
7861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Rockband] New owner - any tips? on: June 28, 2008, 05:09:52 PM
Well, I finally got my parcel from the local postoffice ;-)

And WOW - just..Oh dead and fluffy lord - Wow! eek

This be fun!! I've tried out all 3 things on my own, and later tonight a few friends will come over for some multiplayer, so going to be fun exploring that.

Drums I REALLY love, its so fun! only thing is, I have troulbe finding the right way to sit, so that my foot rests properly while not banging the bigdrum - I understood now about the drum stool.

The guitar is very different from the GH3 I have, a bit more toylike, but its okay, the singing is great fun, I wonder if its possible to make some sort of multiplayer thingie here, where you can sing like in Singstar?

The only bad thing is, that since I live in europe, the download store is somehow disabled, all tracks are "currently unavailable" , Im assuming thats because Its an import, and those tracks are for US only -we'll see what happens when the game hits Euro stores

Hmm, toughie - but here's answers from my point of view

1) Lots and lots and lots of stuff to do! There's three ways to advance in levels in the game, ADventuring, Crafting and diplomacy (Oh, and its NOT Instanced)

2) High maintenance - i.e. its a bit powerhungry, if you want all the bells and whistles of the graphics

All and all, this is the game I've been waiting for, 16 different classes, 19 races, all with different abilities, althugh, racials arent that powerfull but some are very very fun, as the dragon the dark elves can summon, which grows in size...

The game is very open, many places to go and all that, and, to answer one of your unasked quesitons, Seradon is growing a LOT in population these days :-)

Bland?!! They have a freaking shadowstep (a teleport that puts you behind an enemy)! smile

Seriously though, like in many other games, you have to level a char to a certain level before you can safely come to some conclusions regarding the skills of this class and whether you will have fun playing it. IMO in VG it's lvl 10. If I remember correctly.

Razgon, have you created a guild on Seradon? How many people you've got there now?

no, havent created a guild, you need a full group (6) people to do so, and I havent found many OO'ers online yet, probably due to GF slywink But, have all weekend free, (Rockband aside) and will be playing a lot there - let me know if people want to create a guild - then, we'll do so :-)

Vanguard also has a cool feature called "Brotherhood".  Read more about it here:

http://vanguard.tentonhammer.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=display&ceid=832

I've read the link, but I still don't understand the difference between the two types. The idea sounds VERY cool though.

something really cool is, that you can actually level up your alts at the same time as your main...by being in brotherhood with yourself :-)

My GH3 is named Gibson, that isnt GH3 Les Paul , is it? Its wireless though , so, really hope it works - I Assume you can then use two guitars at the same time, with the drums and singing thingie? meaning, 4 people can actually play?

Four people can play at once as long as you have 4 USB ports, a mic, a drum set, and two Rock Band Fender Stratocasters.

The GH3 Gibson on the 360 will work on the 360 version of Rock Band, but the PS3 Gibson will not work on the PS3 Rock Band because of petty corporate asshattery on Activision's part.

thanks for the clarification - guess I'll have to invest in a Les Paul then for those RB parties :-)

oh, and whats so funny about Parcel?!  icon_biggrin

As for system, its a PS3 I have, and the TV setup is a philips 32 inch flatscreen, connected with HDMI cables :-)

I'll definitely going to be calibrating it - never did with GH3 and that may be why its a bit..hard at times :-)

btw, all the downloadable tracks, are they free, or ?

interesting timing.  maybe they're trying to steal GH4's thunder over there.

same thought occured to me - its about one year after the US release, so, it seems very planned that its this close to the GH4 release...sigh..I'll probably get that as well...

Then there was the time I was walking down the road and found a guy dead full of all kinds of armor and stuff I'd never seen.  I looted just as fast as I could and ran.

The biggest though, was the time a friend and I were running through the wilderness and I guess we found where a house had just decayed or something because we found a treasure trove of chests and all kinds of gear just laying around.  We were in the middle of grabbing all we could when a portal opened and some guy in full plate stepped out.  We both recalled as fast as possible.

that actualy sounds fun!!
