Quote from: kronovan on December 02, 2008, 07:33:53 PM

I just checked this out on the 360 at work. There's a 'Restore to Factory Defaults' option on the network configuration page's advanced settings tab. I haven't it used it myself, but that might just do the equivalent of a delete. To get to that option access: 'System Settings' > 'Network Settings' > 'Configure Network' > 'Advanced Settings'.

Yeah, that's the link I tried and it didn't seem to do anything. I'll try it again.

Boo. It's an electric chainsaw. Back to the drawing board.

Well, considering you'd have to keep the gas chainsaw running for it to be any use, the electric is probably a bit more stealthy.

I played God of War 2 before I packed away my PS2 (PS3 took its spot) so the only PS2 games I have remaining in my collection that I haven't played (and want to) are Ico and MGS3. MGS3 is definitely the problematic one because it prevents me from playing MGS4. So I really hope they come out with the software BC or I may wind up slapping the old PS2 on to one of my SD sets. As it doesn't have any widescreen options, it would probably look better that way anyway.

I think I tried doing setup again - it didn't ask about the network settings. I hadn't thought about removing the HD. Can you go online without any memory attached? I know before I had my HD I had a memory card plugged in always.

7446  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone know how to completely erase network settings on a 360? on: December 02, 2008, 02:57:36 PM
I am having a really weird problem with my 360. All of a sudden when I go into network settings, the console thinks that I have a wireless adapter connected and is attempting to connect via wireless. I did, many months ago, have a wireless adapter, but I have been using the wired connection since then.

If I connect, it generally seems to figure out that I am wired and not wireless, but not always. It also has the SSID of my wireless network stored, and shows that it's trying to connect to it.

What I'd like to do is completely wipe out the network setting so that it has no knowledge of my SSID and set up the network settings again. Any idea how to do this? There is a "return to factory settings" link under the advanced settings tab in the network prefs, but that doesn't seem to do anything.

Quote from: Turtle on December 01, 2008, 11:02:29 PM

I hope the stealth aspects aren't whole stealth based segments, as those can get annoying.  Instead, it'd be nice to be able to sneak as part of normal gameplay instead of every encounter involving shooting.  It was impossible to avoid combat in Uncharted 1 except with maybe the first guy that you ran up behind.

I'm playing it for the first time right now (about 80% complete) and am really confused by the mention of stealth kills in the manual and in the trophies. I have yet to be able to sneak up on anyone. There are a few cases where you can see the enemies before they see you and you are presented with a lot of cover, but no matter how hard I try, I am always spotted at some point when moving from cover to cover or even when just hiding. One time I wound up walking up behind a guy in an archway, and he even managed to turn around and spot me before I could get up right next to him.

My big thing when I went to visit my grandparents down in Florida when I was in grade school was to get whatever seasonal special (they had a summer special, whatever, that was a compilation of past material) was out and read it on the plane. Sometimes I was able to get the previous season special and then the new one for the ride back up. I never got the individual issues, but friends did.

Not sure if Cracked is still around in print but their website is very popular.

I wouldn't be surprised if Valve steps in when they are complete to have some control over it if it's of a decent quality.

I've seen a lot of speculation on that and on the surface it seems justified given their history with modders.  However I read that at this point something like 100 people or so have contributed to Black Mesa Source so that might make things a bit murky in who you have to compensate/get permission from to make it "official".

Well I want to play it on a console, so they better work that out smile

The way that I did it, I was required to make the purchase on the Sony Card. So it took about a week for the card to come, and then I ordered the console.

How long did it take for you to receive it after applying for the card...

Took about a week for it to show up in the mail.
7453  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Sony Card? on: December 01, 2008, 04:27:17 PM
This is essentially the deal that I did to get my PS3, except it was in conjunction with Amazon. Just read carefully and make sure you mail in everything you need and it should be fine. I don't plan on using the card after I pay it off.

I noticed that after playing the first SP mission on hardened I had received the "purple heart" achievement, but there was no description for how I got it. I noticed that Hark didn't have this achievement, even though he had finished the game. I looked it up and it was for dying 20 times in the same mission  icon_lol

I tend not to buy games on release, so it is rare that I play a game that is too awful. Of the games I played, I'd have to go with Too Human. Very repetitive and some of the worst boss battles ever in a game.

Quote from: wonderpug on November 26, 2008, 04:39:06 PM

monoprice.com is the place to go.  Just buy a regular HDMI cable for $5.  If you need to run separate audio cables, either shave off a little plastic from your existing A/V plug to make room for the HDMI cable, or buy a $3 extender thing from ebay.  Don't let Microsoft bully you into a $40+ purchase just to get around their stupidly placed ports.
   
I see the HDMI input on the Xbox 360. Once I get the cable from monoprice, will the HDMI provide sound to the TV (I'm not sure exactly what you meant by separate audio) or will I only have sound if I get the extender or shave the plastic? Thanks.

Correct, HDMI carries audio and video. You would only need separate audio cables if you were sending the audio to a separate receiver or something.

So, I drive an hour in traffic and rain to get to the courthouse, only to be told that my jury duty had been canceled. Couldn't they have, you know, mailed me? Or emailed me since I confirmed online? Not only that, I don't get a credit for service for this, so they can call me again whenever they want.

They always tell me to call after 6pm the night before to find out if I still have to come in.  You're supposed to check with them before going, not the other way around. frown

yeah, you work for the Man, the Man doesn't work for you.

Pretty sure Massachusetts doesn't tell you to do that. The best part was that there was some note on the record that said that mail had been returned or something - they how did they get me the first notice? Nothing is wrong with my mail. On the bright side, 1) I was able to sneak in 2 rank upgrades in COD5 and 2) I am assured to be home to accept the delivery of my ps3.

This is old info, so it may not pertain anymore, but in Massachusetts, they used to give you a number to call the night before to see if you were still needed - AND the call-in qualified as your jury duty (though they may have changed that, dunno.)  Be sure to save the info/ letter/ whatever, and state it on your next summons.  I'm thinking you should probably not use the intarwebs for this... ?

But the real point is - OMG, Teggy, you are from Massachusetts?  I  don't think I knew that, lol - I'm from Western MA, Amherst to be precise.  GO New England!   icon_razz

Not technically _from_ but a Masshole for 10 years now. Boston area.

So a bunch of us that played last night tried out some rounds of War. There were mixed opinions about it. The negatives thought that it was too much of a pain to concentrate on capturing objectives and simultaneously fighting off enemies, and it was bad for the k/d ratio. Personally, I thought it was a lot of fun, partly because my k/d sucks and always likely will (my COD4 ratio was about .77 at best and I'm currently at .59 in COD5). First of all, it's played on the big maps where I often wind up having to roam around looking for someone to kill. In War, you pretty much know everyone is heading for the flag, so you can be continuously in action. Second of all, you can play with 9 people on a team.

Oh yeah, and there is some weird stuff on the leaderboards - the person with top kills per minute has 2998 kills and 1 death, yet has only played for 18 seconds.
