4641  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New WoW addon pics - Horde paly Alliance shaman on: July 24, 2006, 07:55:52 PM
This makes me quite upset.  Just destroy the unique factor for both sides.  Seeing  Alliance Shaman for me will be a sad day.  hell, the only reason I went Horde was for my Shammy

Sad day indeed

Something that occurred to me as I woke up this morning.  A great idea for IFF in the game would be pennants on the mechs.  People could use whatever design they wanted on it, and it would stand out.


Whaddya think?

Edit: unrelated but interesting.  If you mount multiple missile counters, they DO stack together and fire together.  I'm going to have to experiment with this a bit.  Hard to do since I don't run into multiple missile AI's that often.

Also... link to a much better quality video of the unidentified weapon.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEmJcygM-V0&NR



I like the flag idea, but I also like the yellowish\-greenish color we was using.  

Jarrod you can activate 2-3 missle counters at the same time?   I might have to experimet with this when I get home.

I love the idea of being a scout, but the reality is..I like surviving battles more.

It seems like I should be able to scout and light towers and run away from battles, but in actual combat situations, I find that I can't get away quickly enough and end up really badly damaged and then I'm limping along until I get destroyed.  I s'pose I could try smoke and see how that goes.


I'm quite happy being the scout.  Keep going with the lumbering beast and I'll be content to zip around and grab COMBAS and maybe take on their commander.

I have smoke on my scout.  I'm not really sold on its usefulness, especially against the AI.  I found the best defense is just being able to see their ordinance coming and casually step out of the way before turning tail and running.

I gotta go log on now!


I must say that Stiffler does that best job I have seen of someone acting as a Scout


Yea Stiffler does a great job with that scout of his saved our squad more than once when we were in deep doo doo by taking down the enemy base.


I have to agree having Stiffler as a scout has saved enough sorties for us.

We need to institute a polic to help against shooting teammates.  If someone asks in the mic whether someone else is friendly or foe, everyone flash their headlights.  Or come up with a better idea than that. smile


The night mission we ran was pretty intense with the night vision.  You couldn't tell friend from foe.  I think I remember yelling ,"Turn on your lights so we don't shoot each other!"


This game can have some white-knuckle moments

I expect Sega to start nerfing stuff.  I expect they didn't want  wins to come so quick and so cheap.  I seriously expect piles to be NERFED hard or at least nerfed against buildings


Also, count me in as a person who would like to re-visit the Russian side just to buy new parts

As good as I think it is, and as fun and addicting as I think it is, I am relatively sure I would not still be playing if I wasn't in a group with people I know.  The game is a ton of fun, but I think (for me), it's because of playing with the great people here.  I'm pretty sure if I was "out on my own", the game's legs would be significantly shorter.

Very, very true.  Also the reason why I WILL NOT buy this game.  The second I buy it and by the time I'm halfway decent at playing everyone here will have moved on to something else and with no riveting single player I would then have a $60 coaster.  I just can't jump into a new game and play it constantly within the first few days of release.  Heck, I'm even now just starting/trying to get into Oblivion and I had that since it came out!

As much as I'm dying to play it with you guys I know I would not be ready in time.  I'm the type that reads manuals, reads strategy guides and practices forever and never really plays the game in question.

Mark my words.   The second Madden 07 comes out nobody here at GT will ever mention Chromehounds again.

Sad.  :cry:


Madden is crap, I will still be playing and talking about chromehounds.  Chromehounds even has caused me to give up on EQ2 and Titan Quest.



Chromehounds has taken the place of WoW and Titan Quest as well

Agreed, I love playing with you guys.  I'm sure with playing with a good squad this game would probably have very short legs.  

Also, it good to play with people who don't really care about getting our asses kicked by AI.  Man, that was a low point last night  :lol:

4662  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Weird problem with PC Boot up on: July 18, 2006, 12:33:58 PM
This morning I booted up my PC as I usually do before hitting the shower.  When I came back I notice that it's stuck on the BIOS  screen, The screen where the bios loads prior to XP loading, I look at it and it has  warning.  It says, Warning-CPU Voltage settings has been changed- Reset and save.

So I reboot and it agains stalls with the same warning.   I am running a AMD 2.17 Athlon.  I go into the BIOS and check my settings  and things appear fine.  So I save and continue into windows and I run the AMDcpu ID utility and it comes back 2.03 MHZ.  Not to bothersome, but I had to leave for work.  

So can anyone give so advice why this could have happened?  I was thinking the motherboard battery could be going bad, but the date and time in the BIOS was correct and accurate.  Any other ideas?

BTW, Its a Epox 8R3DA-I motherboard

I have been busy with work the past few days.  

I need to log in tonight and see if I won either of those 2 lotteries I got yelled at for bidding in, and then check out how I can further improve my lean, mean, medium/long range support soldier/sniper mech with Sal-Kar parts.

Can't let Soulchilde go into battle without his trusty support teammate shooting at him!  (err... I mean over him.)   biggrin



Yeah, I missed not having you shooting me in the back last night smile  

I like the Sal Kar parts but like Turtle said they can't take a beating.  So make your shots count smile

I'll be in for more tonight

We need people to start taking Commander and Scout Hounds.  I like my Soldiers Hounds and I broke down and made a Commander and Scout.  

Imo, everyone needs to try doing it so not just one person is stuck with the Commander or Scout role.
4666  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 17, 2006, 01:52:58 PM
Just to add that we need to pay more attention  to where the fighting is going on.  We need to fight were it is more logical to fight.  St. Yves should have been our focus for most fo the night  

Arkon if we have to switch go Sal Kar
4667  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 17, 2006, 01:39:12 PM
Go Sal Kar.  I'm starting to detest the Russian faction.  I think Sega needs to think about rebalancing some of the weapons.  Shame, once all the US players logged to get sleep the Russians players just ran roughshod over the maps

Only thing I want to point out that once we start going against human opponents we need to start assisting on targets.  3-4 hounds pounding on one mech will end the fight much quicker than 1 v 1.  So lets start assisiting.  Going to see Pirates of the Caribbean tonight, but I will but up for more Hound actions tonite!

Im running a War/Def build.  Running with 2 blue weapons at my lvl 18 my average dps is 60 (roughly).   I will try to get screen shots of character to show you what I have.  Im pretty happy with the build but I have been working on my DPS then defense. KD doing the magic and healing which is a great party to work with.


My Assassin (Warfare/Rogue) DW and I have a AVG DPS of 115 at lvl 23.  I don't have much defense so I go through alot of heal potions, but damn if I don't put out alot of HURT!!!

So I decide to try out some of the fixes on the Tech boards, so I do one of the more drastic and delete the quest file which will reset your quest log to nothing, but allows me to play my toon.


So I blaze through the quest and I get to AThens.  I defeat the Minatour Boss outside of Telkine room and I am about to portal and sell and the games CRASHES and gives me a blue screen of death.  First time for this.  So after XP restarts automatically I go back in to my game and my lvl21 Assassion is back outside of Helos with a empty quest log. 3 Hours of playtime down the drain.  :evil:  :roll:   :evil:


Methinks the signs are telling me that despite how fun this game really appears  I just need to get rid of it.  FUCK!  






At least I got it as with a Best Buy gift card.


-EDIT-Well, I think I solved my crashing issue and was able to make it to Eygpt after blazing through the main quest in Greece.  The good thing about all this I suppose is that my lvl 22 Assassin now has some kick ass epics.  Two Bloodstone rings, Soul Carver, Hyperion Breastplate, Two Pieces of the Obsidian Set (Helm and Hand Axe), and another Hand Axe I forget the name.  Also, got a nice green dagger called Deathweaver's Legtip.  It has a stat that I don't understand

Deathweaver's Legtip
60 poison damage
5.0% chance +257% poison damage
2-8 bonus damage

Can somone explain 5.0 chance +257% poison dmg?
