any links to support this? My google has turned up nada. Would love to know before jumping in with both feet.

it was actually 11 vs 2 slywink  though we did send you invites a couple of times.

That was effing ridiculous last night for a couple of matches.  Talk about rolling thunder batman. You guys just kept coming and coming – Bradley (Nonna, Hark) /tank (Nonna,Hark,Pug) /UAV (kato, M4ck3r) / chopper (pug).
If memory serves it was something like this in terms of teams:

Harkonis
Damage
Kato
Nonnahob
M4ck3r
Owain
Wonderpug

Vs:
ArchDan
RomyBolognaPony
Useless twat #1
Useless twat #2
Useless twat #3
Useless twat #4
Useless twat #5
Useless twat #6
Useless twat #7

Now I know what it must feel like to be a soldier on a vastly overpowered force ! Very demoralizing and frustrating to say the least.

Yes you guys did send out invite – and they did mean something to Dan and I. But we wanted to not come across like quitters in some weird way – hope that makes sense.
Like I said last night - Dan and I are like peas and carrots. We spawn together and camp together ( I mean get stuck behind rocks and such)
Still was fun – but I almost Nonnahob rage quit once maybe twice.

yup. If memory serves the last update killed the 3rd party memory card options that were out there.
Up here in Canada they run about 40 bucks - http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/xbox-360-512mb-memory/10086830.aspx?path=6f79c07243a18b53ce6360c3ac031567en02

I am pretty sure that mine is only 64mb - so that should be cheaper.

you don't get assists for a darted person, nor can you home in on one with a rocket.  You do get the 30 points for putting the dart on him though.  Some people just try to dart then knife for extra points

I have to thank you guys. I really do.
After the 1st weekend I was really regretting buying this game – I am weak when it comes to the forum effect at times and felt that this time the effect pulled one over on me.
I did not like the controls – could not get up the stairs at times. Did not understand the whole squad based idea (I was constantly by myself on ‘Rush’ maps and had to run 10miles in order to get back into the action.  Roll Eyes
The guns in my assault class took much effort to get used to.

But now after much time and practice I am really enjoying the MP elements. Playing with the GT group is %110 the reason. We have fun – make fun (of Dan) and play as a squad at the best of times.
I do wish that there were map options though – all the good roofs on the snow level are now known about. ninja
I love love love the AN94 with acog and grip – reminds me of the G3 in MW1 and the Gewhr in W@W.
I have maxed out the assault class  and am afraid of moving onto another class – I loathe the default gun load out for the engineer.

Overall I am happy that I stuck it out.

Damn it I got stuck last night,  need some help in the beggining...  hades area

Spoiler for Hiden:
   Anyways, I am at the room with the guy behind the tree wanting freed.  I got the cart of embers, I push it over to the hellhound who lights it on fire.   I cant seem to get enough lift to make it over the edge of the gate to the lever.   What am I missing?

Ha! This was my first challenge too.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Have the hellhound light it on fire and leave it right in front of his cage. Then go back to 'burning man' and hop back up ontop and jump on the hanging platform and ride it all the way down. You will see the gate above the hellhound rise. Once you stop moving on the platform run back as quick as you can to the cart of embers and use the thermal updraft to allow you to soar up above and and trigger the lever. That unleashes the hellhound fight him and ride him and kill everything - including the burning man  icon_twisted Get the bow and arrow thingy. look for secrets........

If it were the US version I could have got an integrated TV tuner  icon_cry

So I am now thinking about an External TV tuner option to use in conjunction with Win7 Ultimate and Windows Media Ctr.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look for - specific product etc etc.

Newegg has this: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815100035 but do I limit myself when using USB - or should I look for a 'truly' external box option. Or what about PCMCIA option?

I plan on using the laptops HDMI out to connect to the TV in the bedroom for pre-recorded shows etc etc.

Thanks in advance,

AVI doesn't determine which codec; there are multiple file types that label as .AVI.

Try viewing them in Media Center on the Xbox and see how many you have. WMC allows certain files that "My Videos" does not.

I believe that you hit the nail on the head. It must be codecs that are the challenge.

Weird scenario.

I stream music and video to my TVs via the 360. I have 88 videos in my 'video' folder but when I browse from the xbox there are only 82 listed?
I assume that when I place a video in the directory that it takes on the permissions set by the folder?

I have stopped and restarted the sharing process many times and still nothing.

Thoughts?

1160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Impressions on: March 03, 2010, 02:24:19 PM
First time with the Battlefield genre and I think I like it so far.
Server issues aside I did enjoy my brief hour or two last night and even got promoted to level 1 !
Things that will take getting used to: Snipers Snipers Snipers (ok- recon) but you get the drift. One map I was on has 2-3 of them at a time all hanging out behind us at all times – they would obviously chose to spawn back with their buddies.
I managed to kill them all more than once – however I did notice that they were – most of the time atleast – outside of the battle zone? I was constantly being told that I was outside the boundries once I got a kill? If I am outside the range than what the heck are they doing there? Add to that the fact that many of the maps are rife with foliage for them to hide in……. ninja

I also learned that I am rubbish without the heartbeat sensor. crybaby  I really hope that there is a perk for this –I did see one for vehicles that I was able to use so I am hopeful. nod

The guns seem pretty cool and the sounds are definitely nice through the Turtle Beach headphones that I use. I do find the ‘walking’ animation on my gun to be a little weird – it looks like I am one of those Olympic speed walkers wiggling my hips.

I also need to train myself to work as a team. I watched a video late last night after playing on Youtube that was posted here earlier that showed me how to ‘marl’ players/objectives with the BACK button. I will surely start to do this.

I did have a few movement issues where I misjudged some stairs etc. And also had some clipping issues when I was running beside little hills/cliffs.

Overall – I will continue to play and see where this title takes me.
