I have a early generation HDTV.  Meaning my TV displays at 1080i  and while some doesn't consider 1080i as good high def I simply love my 360 on my TV.  Graphics look amazing on it

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:

4645  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.
4649  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
4650  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
4651  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehound- First downloadable pack next week! FREE!! on: July 14, 2006, 08:35:44 PM
We're happy to announce that the first downloadable pack of new content for Chromehounds will be unleashed next week. And it'll be free!

SEGA and FromSoftware have made the decision to offer the pack free of charge by way of a thank you to HOUND pilots around the world. As you may know, we experienced some tricky server-load problems right after launch, and we hope this will go some way to saying thanks for sticking by the game.

The pack will be available to download via the Xbox Live Marketplace at 00:00GMT on 19th July.


Light Arms
A sniper cannon for fast, furious engagements. Features a smaller magazine to reduce weight.

Heavy Arms
An improved HC1500/D, for those in the know. A giant cannon with massive destructive power.

Assist Part
Additional armor with an enhanced KE defensive profile. Itís shaped to better turn bullets.

Colour Pattern
WWII Tricolor Camouflage
A brand new World War II inspired camouflage pattern.


Taken from Segas Official Website!

While I like that it's free I'm starting to hate the trend of buying content from Live.

I think we are filling up here pretty quickly.  I think 40 per squad would have been better.  Someone might need to start up the OO Brutesquad
4653  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 14, 2006, 12:57:31 PM
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!
4654  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chromehounds - NOW WITH IMPRESSIONS on: July 14, 2006, 10:46:48 AM
I am glad I picked this up.  Awesome mp game.  I only went thru the iinitial sp missions, but I expect to play throught them some to pick up the extra parts.

More thoughts later when I get to work

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?

Soulchilde, try this from the devs:


Issue: My character got corrupted and will no longer load!
- Open My Documents\My Games\Titan Quest\SaveData\Main\[CHARACTERNAME]\\Normal
- Sort the directory by "date modified"
- Delete the latest created .que file
- Try to load the character again (this may reset some quest data)
NOTE: This bug is fixed in the first patch, which we're trying to get into player hands asap.

Tried that fix last night and my game is still bugged.  Still very pissed that all my time is wasted.  No wonder I lean towards console gaming so much.  

Trading this POS away

Nothing out there I want right now, but will entertain offers.  Games comes with DVD rom case with intructions and fold out

EDIT-Due to FINALLY solving my crashing issues I am cancelling this trade.  Thanks for all the offers
4666  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN Titan Quest review on: July 04, 2006, 12:52:02 AM
Well, this fucking game is going up for trade.  After dealing with multiple crashes and finally getting and beating the Telkine the games crashes on me while I'm getting the quest update from Kyros.  I Reboot and restart my game and the ship captain that takes me to Egypt WON'T talk to me.  That's I'm done.  So, damn pissed right now.  Level 19 Assassin down the drain.

Putting this up on the trade forum if anyone wants this POS

It's a stupid television show.

And did I see right? Blade stabbed one of the "main" vampire characters in the leg with a silver stake, and she didn't ash away? Way to fuck up your own vampire logic for the sake of a plot point and to keep a non-red shirt vampire.

Not a plot hole per se.   In the first Blade he spiked Quinn twice and nailed him to the wall.


There's only one way to save this show: late night lady vampire softcore.

I agree with Purge "Hardcore"
4668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Seriously, what's up with the A.I. in DoA4? on: June 29, 2006, 12:41:22 PM
Quote from: "TheMissingLink"
Come on now.  I swear, sometimes, the computer pulls of a reversal 3-4 times a match.  On the easiest difficulty.  I'd say that 50% of my matches tonight, my very first attack was reversed.  

And don't get me started on Alpha-152.  Took me a good 30 matches the other night to finally beat it.  

I gave up tonight fighting it.  Didn't want to break my controller into a million pieces.

Why the decision to make the A.I. so incredibly hard?  And with DoA4, I wouldn't even say the A.I. is hard - it's cheap.  And it's brutal and nasty.  I don't see any real positives from making this kind of difficulty the default and lowest difficulty setting in the game.

Because I appreciate hard A.I. with fighting games.  Virtua Fighter 4: Evo has the hardest difficulty I've come across, without feeling cheap.  When I get beat in VF4, I've been outmatched and out-strategized.  And I change tactics, and I try other things for a different result...but in DoA4, it's just hard and cheap just to be hard and cheap, it feels like.

So, what the hell, Team Ninja?

You are talking about the dev team that made Ninja Gaiden. I forget the lead producers name, but he is on record saying he likes to make his games very hard and difficult

In a word it's crappy.   I'm going to pick out the things that made me roll my eyes.  That had to make the girl a hot vampire chick that takes his syrum.  Get the fuck out of here.  Next, Sticky Fingazz CANNOT carry this series.  He is not a action star and looks very stiff in his fight scenes.  Back to hot vampire chick. Desperate attempt  to grab the adolescent males. Just too many other plot holes to mention

The show is going to be a early cancellation.

i saw a few of the first commercials for blade - the one with the blade character doing a lot of talking - hes um, pretty terrible.  it actually didnt surprise me that they quickly stopped running those commercials and aired "vampire intensive" ones instead - these WITHOUT a single line of dialogue from the blade guy

he really needs to go back to acting school

His nickname is "Sticky".  What did you expect?

Actually, it's Sticky Fingazz and if you remember the rap group Onyx then you will remember who he is

Although no new achievements ( BOO, Ubisoft) I would love to play the chapter 2 missions this weekend.  The way I see it we will need at minium 4 people, but the more the merrier.  The mission difficulty has been upped and the AI is much more aggressive and quite better with tactics.  Some of the missions requir people to take different weapons in the 4 categories.  Everyone can't go rifleman or sniper.  Heck, someone might actually have to take a Dragon/Missle Launcher

Anyone up for playing this weekend?

I'm undecided at this moment.  Sigh, who am I kidding I'll get it cause most of the people I play GRAW with will have it.  Its the nature of the beast I guess
