hmm, okay, wrote wrong, I have 3 gigs of ram...

As for model, I wrote in subject line, hehe, its an Asus...

and, well, didnt really know anything about laptops so as for upgrading, I've no clue...I think I heard something a few years ago about PCMIA? or something like that? isnt that where you insert your graphics cards?

and thanks for the feedback :-)

A staffer just heard from Rip again.  Sounds like he has upped his staff and is still working on his big clients and such.  Gedd is working on getting things going as far as the forum sans old stuff while wait though.  I'll let those who are actually doing the work comment on what they are doing though.   slywink

I'm pretty sure he's almost finished inverting the polarity of the tachyon pulse emitter.  After that we just have to perform a level one diagnostic on the cromulation engine, and we should be good to go.

If one of our SF Bay Area residents could just stop buy Alameda to pick up a nucular weasel we'll be all set.

fixed that for ya...

Anyone have any idea of how close to the PC battelfield iterations this game is? Those tend to turn into hackfests and vehiclegrabs and the unaltered infantery doenst stand a chance...

I'm pumped for this... I still remember Dune, and Dune 2 which, as far as I know, was the first of this kind of game, and C&C took the genre to a whole new level with its storyline and great units.
8086  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Upgrading Laptop - Asus G2S on: May 30, 2008, 06:21:05 AM
So..after playing Age of Conan, I think I want to upgrade my laptop, but, having been a stationary owner my whole life, I dont have a clue in this world.

2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7500 (Santa Rosa platform)
Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel 965 PM Express chipset
2 gigs Ram
nVidia GeForce 8600M GT

so..I Thought, since I'm using vista 32, I cant put more Ram in it, but, the graphics card can be upgraded.

Any recommendations? and, how the heck do you install a new graphics card in a laptop?

I think, the only reasonable way to do it, is to start a group of likeminded people, and then kill back if someone tries to grief you!
8091  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Age of Conan - technical threat on: May 29, 2008, 08:42:09 AM
So - seeing so many people with decent qualifications to answer questions about AoC, I though we should make a thread about the technical aspect of AoC and whatever troubles we may run into.

Am I the only one, whose game is acting...strange? At times, I have 20-35 fps, even 40, and then suddenly, next time I boot up the game (no patches in-between), I get 5-10?

Also, the game was running really great, everything smooth and everything, until I tried to rez someone...BANG, the FPS just died....very, very strange...something to do with the rez animation?

All in all, performance is..very strange in this game

wow - this is a messy post (no pun intended due to the nature of the first word, nor the use of Nature and wrath)

anyways, what about the whole idea "Hit the HIGH video settings and turn of shadows" does that work for anyone? because it doesnt for me...

Tried a bit last night before the 6 hours downtime...and the game ran perfectly smooth for me..strange...

anyways - lvl 19 now ,yay me!

edit: btw, strange thing, it seems that funcom for some reason decided to remove some Emotes? I still wonder at why they are so friggin' bad at making patch notes, where 3/4 of the patched stuff isnt listed in the note?

haha, okay, I *have* to share this!! from over at the official forums, with the title "Cock fights"


I was watching last night two cocks to fight each other. There was lvl2 cock vs lvl1 cock and they had nice duel. There was like 5 players watching this fight. It was hilarious, players were cheering for the lvl1 cock but it lost the fight

Why not give us fighter cocks (or fighter chickens for female chars), let us train our own fighters somehow and then organize some tournaments or duels, and the winner gets the price money.

It would be nice.
Fighter Chickens??  icon_eek icon_lol
8101  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Age of Conan Impressions on: May 27, 2008, 06:26:44 AM
My impressions - again ;-)

I'm loving it...There's something about it, I just can't put my bony finger on...I love my Tempest of Set, she's so awesome looking, even IF watching the pony-tail from behind makes me kinda motionsick...

I'm not out of Tortage yet, but, the quests there are so damn colorfull, I've been running all over the place last night, because of a jawbone and a a skull, a quest that had me going perhaps 12 or 14 different places and talk with people..and it was FUN! I wanted to see what happened... havent had that feeling for a long time i a game.

The graphics are, as everyone should know by now, incredible, and high maintenance as well. I've managed to make it run about 27 fps which is reasonable I guess, even on what I think of as a pretty good laptop.

The classes are very differentiated, and all feels fun and interesting, and with a REAL backstory to why they are there. The races the same, when I play my Stygian Tempest, I feel totally badass, my Cimmerian Bear Shaman though, is very much in tune with nature, even IF he's ready to smash it to pieces with his giant hammer though.

Launch polish...well, there's been a lot of talk about it, and *even* in Tortage, that's supposed to be the 100 percent done area ,Funcoms' shining jewel, there's trouble.  But its minor, compared to other mmo launches I've seen, and I think ,that if they move quickly BEFORE the end of the month and put in some more end-game content, polish what's there, makes the game a bit more stable and removes some of the most glaring and annoying bugs, they can have a hit on their hands!

All in all, I just cant put the game down, but they really need to patch it up, and do it soon!

Quote from: Rich on May 27, 2008, 12:42:04 AM

My other character is a healer/caster of some kind from Stygia but I can't remember what his class is called.  He is only level 12 and is a lot harder to solo with than the Conquerer, I have to do a lot of quick bursts of damage then a quicksand to run back and let the heals over time spells work some before they come whack me again.  The first few levels I thought he was crazy overpowered but now with the normal 1v2, 1v3 play that seems to be in this game it's going to be hard not to have to group with him.

Tempest of Set?? I've got a lvl 18 of that kind, and she works like a charm. I never even use quicksand. You have your cobra stare which stuns as well, I can easily take out 3 mobs, sometimes 4 if they arent all my level. ToS are right now supposed to be the most unbalanced character types to play. Remember to have Depravation of Set or whatever its called on at all times, and use your HOT's before the battle, and in the battle to maximize output.

Strange thing is this all started happening about 2 or 3 days ago. Up until then I was the one saying I didn't have one tech problem.

I dont know what to try anymore. I've tried new vid the game.....turned shader down to 2.

Any suggestions?

Am I the only one?

I'm having some issues as well, with freezing and low fps suddenly...although, due to my crappy ASUS laptop, I have to use nonofficial drivers from laptop2go, so, could be that for me. But, funnyli enough, this started happening a few days ago as well..

So, what classes are you playing, and what is the strength/weakness's of each?

Personally, I really enjoy my Tempest of Set - delivers serious damage and is fun to play..Ive heard that the ToS and the Demonologist are the best (some would say most unbalanced) for end-game play so far, delivering the best DPS and with the higest survivability.

Also, tried out the Bear shaman, and got him to level 12 - really fun, but healing is very lacking as I see it so far...

Could you elaborate on the problem?  I'm trying to think of what kind of problem couldn't be handled by account people.  Plus, where are you that you've been having a problem for two weeks?  I thought the game just came out?

well, the problem was, that I had an old Anarchy Online account, and when I entered my pre-order code, it just..vanished. No Age of Conan account showed up for me anywhere...trying to do it again didnt work, and apperantly that was a problem a lot of people had.. so, I wrote the accountpeople about it, and they told me they only handled Anarchy online (aftre 7 days) and referred me to Ageofconan account mail instead. Even though I DID use the mail adress in the "" account area.... So, after writing that mail, I got their standard response, that EA (EArly Acces) was closed bla bla bla, which had  nothing to do with the problem.

It's thankfully fixed by now, but...those were horrendous waiting times, especially since their phones werent answered as well.

they still havent answered btw...

In my company, we say 24 hours is the MAXIMUM a mail is allowed to remain unaswered...

With the launch of Age of Conan in Europe we introduce another ruleset which has been requested by many players for quite some time now: RP-PvE.

The first server available of that ruleset is Hyrkania (European English region). We will keep an eye out for that server to see how many players actually are interested and will consider more servers if needed.

Hyrkania, here I come!!
