If he were glitching during multiplayer games to gain an unfair advantage, I'd tell him to stop (unlimited air drops, lightweight/air drop, various map glitches.)  As Pete said, how is that any different than cheating at sports?  Something we'd most likely all agree would piss us off.

Agreed - he is not even close to learning that stuff just yet and I would certainly watch him for this type of 'glitching'. I hated the elevator glitches in COD: WaW - frustrated me to no end. And I made sure that he did not use it.

Ditto for OtterChaos and I'm almost always on the bottom of the score table, I think my k/d is something like .33 so easy points if I'm on the other side.

Exactly my thoughts the other day. I was 'fortunate' enough on Sunday night to have joined the party but there were no spots left on Harks list so I was punted to the other team. I think you and I were both on the 'bad guys' team and we were handed a beating match after match. My KD plummeted from the kelvin scale of .69 to .65 at the end.... crybaby

It was actually kind of commical to hear our team complain about the kills they were subjected to and we had to reinforce the point that they were not cheating - they were just really really really good. I actually remember a mass exodus of players off the list after once match.

Ah good times. But lesson learned - I will never again be on the other team against this crew - too bruising for my online ego  icon_lol

Hopefully they get most if not all of the bugs/glitches fixed within the next few weeks.  With the class setup that Harkonis showed me last night,  I am not sure I will be able to resist the temptation of using it against the legions of MW2 noobs.  That one they really need to fix ASAP.   I actually had groups of people running away from me at points last night.

It was hilarious to watch that build in action but I wouldn't have liked to be on the OpFor, I'm surprised some players hung around for multiple matches after seeing that.

oh - pray tell what was this? It is almost too juicy not to elaborate. (Purely for research purposes....... ninja)

okay all this emotion and coming clean has finally got the better of me. Time to unload.

I also cheated in some games at one time. The games were: Doom and Heretic. I would use the god mode [iddqd] and map cheats [iddt] and sometimes even the increase gamma [idbeholdl] cheat (more so in Doom)

Phew - that felt better. Now I know where my son gets it  icon_wink

I must admit that I did not expect some of the vitriol in a few of the posts either. I posted this out of sheer humour (Canadian spelling) factor.

Vitriol?  Expressing concern over a son's behavior involving "cheating" in a game (your word, not mine), regardless of whether you were being facetious, and being met with opinions on personal character is not "vitriol."  You called your son's behavior "cheating."  We responded in kind.  

Quote
Sure he is artificially raising his rank- but he is not hurting / illegally modifying anything or anyone and at the end of the day he is not out to cheat anyone but himself. He knows that it is a game and that there is certainly no gains outside of getting new weapons that will make him a better human etc etc. Come on get a grip.(sheesh)

He knows the difference between right and wrong as it applies to REAL LIFE but this is a game in which there are no significant gains as mentioned above infact he is the most sensitive individual when considering other peoples feelings outside of me that I know.

PS I am leaving out his age just in case the high and mighty want to jump on me for that too. Rest assured that I was present to ensure that he skipped the airport scene. I did explain what it was and also mentioned that it was not something that he needed to see.

Roman



He's your son, not ours, and you have a far better understanding of his maturation and growth.  Raise him as you see fit, and if his actions online are not considered by you to be questionable or in poor form, that's your call.  But to equate opinions on character with "vitriol" is a bit thin-skinned.  Ultimately you determine where your son stands on character.  But your initial example, whether it be in jest or not, certainly isn't an ideal representation.

EDIT:  That probably sounded harsher than it was intended.  I'm not upset about the topic or with your son in general.  I merely took your initial post as being serious in intent rather than in jest, and I worry about setting precedents about cheating and dishonesty, regardless of how minor.  You know your son and the upbringing he has had, and perhaps disciplining his actions would be a bit much.  

Mountain out of a molehill and all that.  Best of luck trying to catch up to his prestige level.   icon_wink

No harm no foul - I admit that I was trying to sound all 'wordy nerdy' by my choice of words.
I like who he is and am happy with how he is being raised - I think that thin skin thing holds. I posted something and should have been ready for any and all responses.
At the end of the day it was merely a conversation over the interwebs that I will probably not even reflect upon in a weeks time.

And - yes you are correct - I will probably never catch him now  icon_wink

If it's taking him 3 minutes to score 500 points, then leave him be. It's taking far longer than it should.

Quote from: Roman on December 01, 2009, 04:56:33 PM

...upwards of 5000pts in the space of 3mins. He is getting points for deflecting 50k + rounds.




Are you sure the 5000 wasn't just from completing a one-time challenge?  I know there's one for absorbing a certain amount with a riot shield, which sounds more likely than a straight 5k every 3 minutes.

Yeah, that's what I figured, but if you search for "riot shield boosting" on google, it is very popular and it says you can get 30-50K very quickly. I'm not quite clear - do you just get regular bonuses for deflecting bullets?

Apologies - it was only one instance of 5k you are correct. However after that it was a pretty steady climb in terms of increments by the tens every second or so. It did amount to a lot at the end of the day.

I recently discovered that my son is a cheater in MW2  crybaby

How does he cheat you ask? Well back in COD4 days he would specifically search out other players in cage matches who were only interested in 'head shot' type games so that they could both just stand there and increase their stats.
Easy enough to do back in COD4.

But I had heard that they eliminated this type of staged 2 player matches in the latest incarnation......

Well he and a friend on Live figured out a way to make their cage matches work and are raking up the points! finger

Example - they are playing a match yesterday and his friend adds the turret to his kill streak and my son dons the riot shield and stands in front of the turret and I watch gobsmacked as the points start rolling in - upwards of 5000pts in the space of 3mins. He is getting points for deflecting 50k + rounds.

I am a sad dad today  eek

Here he is a level 49 while I am struggling at level 39 or so.

Granted - he is a darn good multiplayer. But come on already  Roll Eyes

If you already have a universal remote you might want to get the Nyko remote instead.  It will allow you you use your current remote with the PS3.  Much better than having two remotes.

Or.. If you have a Harmony remote as I do - you could always go for one of these: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/remotes/universal_remotes/devices/5732&cl=us,en

Trade offer. Windows 7 Ultimate for PS3 games?

Hi all,
   I have purchased a PS3 for the family this Christmas and do not have any games yet.

I do however have an extra copy of Windows 7 Ultimate that I would be willing to straight trade for 3 (or more) PS3 games.

I would like to get my hands on:

Uncharted 1
Resistance Fall of Man 1
Demon Souls

I am thinking that that is a pretty fair deal and am not out to screw anyone here. 2 of the games can be had for $30 used each.
Heck I would even consider more than just 3  nod.

Lemme know what you have to offer.

Anyway just wanted to pass this offer along and see what I can catch.

The Windows 7 is completely legit and came directly from the MS and is the full retail version sealed in all its glory.

Thoughts?

like MF said above - this is a known issue. In fact - this was a 1st gen issue is memory serves. There were tons of posts over at TeamXbox at the time with many users having circular concentric grooves in their game disks.
Something about the disk being unbalanced when spinning - some people also blamed it on the fact that the Xbox was either standing on end or being moved while the disk was spinning? No I am not saying that your situation is similar - just talking a little.

Your game disks may end up all being rendered useless sooner or later.

http://www.google.ca/search?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&channel=s&hl=en&source=hp&q=xbox360+circular+scratches+on+disk&meta=&btnG=Google+Search yields the folllowing:

Wiki: Scratched discs
Disc that has been scratched by the Xbox 360 console

Almost at the same time the Xbox 360 was released in late 2005, customers began reporting rounded scratches found on discs used in their Xbox 360 consoles. Almost two years later, in February 2007, the website "The Llamma's Adventures" investigated the matter and concluded that some Xbox 360 drives lack a mechanism to secure the disc solidly in place.[35] Tilting or moving consoles with these drives, when operating with a disc spinning inside, can potentially cause damage to the disc, in some cases rendering the disc unusable.[36] The disc can also be scratched by a disc tray not functioning in the right way so that the tray will close the disc in an odd position and scratch one side of the disc. Although this problem is not covered by the warranty,[37] Microsoft's Xbox Disc Replacement Program[38] will replace a limited range of scratched discs that are published in countries where the Xbox was originally sold, for a $20 fee,[39] and released a list of games that qualify for replacement.[40] Halo 3 Limited Edition was replaced at no cost until February 1, 2008 according to the Xbox Disc Replacement Program's main site. Other publishers can be contacted directly for a disc exchange, but it is unclear whether they will replace discs at no cost. Game publisher Electronic Arts details a specific program for this problem which requires the disc and original receipt, also the game must be purchased within 90 days of the request for a replacement disc, or will request a replacement charge of $20 or $25.[41]

Hi all - I searched the other Shadow Complex thread and cannot find an answer to my question - so here goes.

I noticed last night while playing for the first time an ambient 'waves crashing on the shore' background sound during the entire hour or so that I played. It was not very discernable but was definitely there the entire time - even during the first cut scene with his dad.

Anyone else notice this? Listen carefully - there was a constant repeating waves crashing on the shore on every level.

Am I crazy?
