7761  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Is ANYONE playing CoD4 online anymore? on: July 08, 2008, 02:52:49 PM
If they put out some new maps, I'm sure we'll all come back, at least for a little while. If there aren't GTers around, with COD4 at least I feel you can comfortably play alone on team deathmatch. Playing BF:BC as a lone wolf, not so much, due to the objective-based gameplay and 4 person com limit. Although I have gotten more comfortable with it, because I can always go after medals and patches.

7764  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone read Lois McMaster Bujold books? on: July 07, 2008, 06:11:53 PM
I had a bunch of audible credits to use up a while back and I picked a bunch of Lois McMaster Bujold books because they looked interesting. I got a few books from the Vorkosigan series (The Warriors Apprentice, The Vor Game and Cetaganda), and also The Curse of Chalion.  I haven't listened to any of them yet - I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on these - whether I should seek out earlier books before The Warrior's Apprentice, if they are any good, etc.

great review ...i have just finished the single player,i liked it,but did start to get a little pissed off near the end(but pretty much anything can piss me off these days)
Spoiler for Hiden:
having to run to those two bridges,take out two tanks and with half the whatever army firing at you,and having to do all that in a time limit before the U.S. army got to the bridges..argghhhhh

After playing that part a bunch of times attempting to do it the way the story seems to want you do it...

Spoiler for Hiden:
...that is, with C4, I took advantage of that fact that with the exception of the bits where you must clear out all enemies, the developers allow you to play the game however you want.  As it turns out, you can dash down the right side of the map, encountering 1 enemy on a rooftop that you need to take out, but almost no others, and reach the bridge. There is an enemy tank on the road right in front of the bridge, but the building to your left protects you. All you have to do is enter the building, where you'll find an RPG. Head to the roof and one or two shots to the near bridge takes it out, and then a long distance shot to the side of the second bridge, and you've stopped the friendly tanks. Now you can peek over the left side of the building and take out the enemy tank with a couple of shots, and you're free to move across the river.

Replaying the game on hard, I was able to use methods like this a number of times. The only really hard level was "Cash and Grab" (the one with the monastery), as you need to go very long distances to get to checkpoints, and they throw snipers, tanks and helicopters at you.

After playing quite a lot of the game, MP connection problems aside, my main gripes would be:

- helicopter controls in the SP being totally different than controls in the MP.  I don't understand why they did that.  They give you an entire helicopter tutorial in the SP and then you go to try and fly in the MP and you just crash.  And by "you" I mean me.

- Having to knife doors.  I spawn in a room in MP and I have to knife my way out just to get back in the battle? I"ve also now just created an opening the enemy can use to look into the house. Dumb.

- The respawn in SP. This makes finishing on hard a lot easier, but I don't really feel like I accomplished much.

- They don't use the d-pad at all in the SP.  Why not allow leaning?

and

Spoiler for Hiden:
The ending was poorly designed. You can destroy the Legionarie's helicopter long before you reach the helipad, but if you do, he magically reappears. That shows a lack of playtesting.

As far as the ways guns work in MP, I can't complain too much about that. You can't please everyone in a game, and any claim that something "isn't realistic" is just kind of silly. If it was realistic you would be incapacitated or dead at one bullet. There are probably some things they could improve, but I can at least understand why the guns and gadgets work as they do.

Got to see this last night.  I'll just echo the praise here - really enjoyed this and it definitely ranks among the best Pixar movies (I consider TS2, A Bug's Life and the Incredibles to be the top tier).

If you haven't seen this, it's worth a look, although I didn't find any Easter eggs at first glance.

So, I found kind of a funny glitch in the SP yesterday. I was finishing up the final mission on hard, dashing through the second to last part, and I came across some swimming pools. I stopped to check them out because they seemed fairly detailed and out of place, and turning, I saw there was a gold box next to them. I triggered the box-opening animation, and literally right as it finished, I got killed. I decided I would go back the same way, but when I got there, I was standing there. "I" as in Preston - the character was hanging out near the pools.  He ran around a little bit when I approached him. After I continued on with the mission, my entire Xbox seized up, but I don't know it that was related.

wow, did I have some bad matches this morning. I was trying to get the laser designator medal (didn't get it) and was just getting destroyed.  I believe one match my k/d was somewhere in the range of 2-25. Someone I met online told me yesterday that my rank was 28 and today it had gone all the way up to 35, maybe it is worse now.

Yes, you did get my tags tonight, but I got yours as well.  Bringing my total Teg-tags total to two.  say that three times fast.

Yes, but getting my tags is no major feat so I expect you will get them again biggrin  I actually didn't know I was getting your tags. I came up around a house and was facing the backs of two enemies.  I crept up on the closer one and it turned out to be you.

I forget who was watching me tonight, but there was a good representation of Teggy getting dogtags.  I saw a guy running down a steep hill (one you can get down but not up), so I dropped down to try for his tags. I of course overshot him, but he still didn't manage to see me, being instead distracted by Owain (or was it Pug?).  I was flailing away, and finally got him, but in the process my teammate got shot.  Now, I could have just shot him and it would have been done with, but dogtags make you get greedy - well, they will for me at least until I get 50.  It's a pathetic thing to watch, I'm sure. And I still have 30 to go.

by the way, here is a pretty good shot of a very poorly chosen vehicle attack over a bridge during that match on Harvest Day.
7771  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing the BF:BC (Now not the demo) on: July 05, 2008, 03:10:42 AM
Had a few good rounds tonight, picking up a bunch more medals, including the 3 objectives in one round. I was a little late in getting to Hark's invite, so I wound up opposite him on a bunch of rounds.  I can't remember which map it was (maybe Ascension? Either that or Over and Out, I think), but I was subject to the most brutal steamrolling I have experienced in the game so far. I couldn't believe how quickly they took the entire map. But no matter, I got Hark's dogtags later on on Harvest Day biggrin

7772  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing the BF:BC (Now not the demo) on: July 04, 2008, 10:18:26 PM
Woohoo! I finally got my "Be the best" achievement/"High Card" trophy, and it was totally legit. It was a 500+ point effort that included two crate destructions. I almost had the last one, too, which is a shame, because it would have been worth two trophies I haven't gotten yet.

Something definitely seems glitched with the avenger trophy, as I have gotten the wildcard for 50 avenger trophies yet I don't have the actual trophy yet.  I also haven't gotten a single savior trophy, which seems a little odd.  I look at Hark's trophies and he has the savior and avenger trophies, but his savior wildcard shows he has 0 savior trophies.
7773  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anyone else playing the BF:BC (Now not the demo) on: July 04, 2008, 04:33:56 PM
Looks like they have made some improvements to the stats site.  The "My Photos" tab now shows up and you can view your photos.

Also, if you look at patches and wildcards now, it shows the additional criteria you need to get the award, not just the IAR criteria. It doesn't show your current progress, however.

At around noon I stopped being able to sign in to the EA servers on Live - not everyone was having the problem and I don't know if it's fixed yet.

To honor independence day, your requirement for this weekend is to only play as Americans. So if you are playing Battlefield and you come up as Russians or middle-easterners or whatever, you must immediately quit your game. Same for COD4.  You may not play Gears of War, God of War, Age of Conan, World of Warcraft or any other game where your character is not an American. GTAIV is OK. MLB is OK. Pretty sure those Hot Shots Golf characters are Japanese, so that's OUT.

If you are Canadian you can play whatever the heck you want.

OK, I am playing on PSP, but I'm guessing a lot is the same? In the training area, it shows each attribute with a thick orange bar and a thin blue bar.  At the top of the page there appears to be a legend that says that orange means declining and blue means stabilized.  But I can't figure it out. One time I trained my vision, which seemed to make that orange bar longer, and then immediately trained my contact, which made that orange bar longer, but then the vision bar looked like it had gotten short again. Anybody understand how that works?

The thin bar is the progress to the next point, if it's red/orange the skill is atrophying and the bar is moving to the left to drop a point, if it is blue the skill is improving and moving to the right to gain a point. When you invest in a skill and the bar goes from long to short, it's because you are gainging a point and starting the progress to the next point, just like XP in an RPG. That's my understanding. I'm playing the PS3 version and it doesn't exactly the same, but I am guessing you have colors mixed up or something in your description. Any time I had an orange bar and invested in it, it went back to blue.

As far as your example, the skills have related skills that go up when you raise the other skill, though vision and contact shouldn't related. From memory on the PS3 version Contact LHP and Contact RHP are related and Batting Vision, Discipline and Clutch are all related.

Well in the PSP version, the thick bars are all orange, and all of my thin bars are blue.  There is a page that lists "stabilized" for all the skills.  I am guessing the thin blue bar will turn orange if it starts decreasing, but the thick bar is just always orange. I think what I was seeing with the bars moving up and down was my blue bars leveling up and becoming short at the start of the next level.  I just didn't realize what was going on.

So yesterday I finished out spring training for my player on Veteran.  I really got the hang of hitting and was way above expectations by the end of the schedule, and I played a full game almost ever day. I was offered a contract for AA, but then everything changed.  I only play once every few days, usually at my backup position (I am 2B/SS), and I am horrible at hitting AA pitching. I only made one of my first set of advanced goals. Do they take it easy on you in spring training?

was fun.

Apparently once you max out your rank the form stat changes to a skill rating between 1-50 with lower being better.  Only one person can be Skill level 1.

I'm at 16 right now, trying to lower it but it doesn't want to budge.

ATB is currently 38, get crackin man! slywink

Wonderpug is 17, so close.

JarrodHK sittin in the mid at 28.



How is said rank determined? 

Also, it appears that my stats have gone crazy. I would say that I comfortably average between 20-30 SPM from match to match, yet my score on the BF stats page says I average 8. something.

This further makes no sense as if I compare to teggy, who has fewer points in more time, my SPM is half his?

Thoughts?

Yeah, the stats are clearly still messed up. Sometimes when I my last round is a really bad round, my SPM will show up as like .7 or something. When my last round is a really good round, it will show up near 30.  It's hard to know if any of the stats are right.\

And thanks for rubbing that in, by the way.

7792  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama vs. McCain - My Research PT. 1 on: June 27, 2008, 07:35:02 PM
Now, I don't like McCain's tax plan because I am against deficit spending which is likely where he is headed. However, I must say that under Obama's plan, as it is written there, some rich folk are getting the screws put to them. I guess it is some kind of average, but as the numbers are there, a person making $3 million loses another 25% of their income.  I'd be curious to know what the actual effect on a person making that much is - maybe it is not nearly that bad.

Note: I fall into a tax bracket that would benefit from Obama's plan - I just don't subscribe to the whole "screw the rich" philosophy.  If they are getting unfair tax breaks in relation to the rest of the country, I am all for remedying that, but the numbers in the chart look a little unfair.

EDIT: Just caught this part - doesn't make me real happy about either plan now.

Quote
Under both plans, all American taxpayers could pay a price for their tax cuts: a bigger deficit. The Tax Policy Center estimates that over 10 years, McCain's tax proposals could increase the national debt by as much as $4.5 trillion with interest, while Obama's could add as much as $3.3 trillion.

The reason: neither plan would raise the amount of revenue expected under current tax policy - which assumes all the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire by 2011. And neither plan would raise enough to cover expected government costs during those 10 years.

"Distributionally, they're markedly different. But in terms of their impact on revenue, the two plans are not terribly different," said Roberton Williams, principal research associate at the Tax Policy Center and the former deputy assistant director for tax analysis at the Congressional Budget Office.

Guessing these are the "savior" and "avenger" bonuses.  Would like to know how they work - can you avenge someone's death forever, or does it have to be with 30 seconds or something? And what constitutes saving someone? Does the guy you kill have to have sent a bullet into one of your teammates in the past 3 seconds to take their health down past 50%, or what?

So, I have to say I am pretty amazed that I have not encountered any lag during the 7 or so hours I have put into the multi on the retail release. However, trying to get a squad into a game has become a major annoyance. Yesterday, Hark, Mikagami, Wonderpug and I tried to set up a squad to join a match.  The first six or so times, even with different people starting the squad, the game would not only fail to join a match, but it would dump us all out of the squad into the main menu.  Another couple of times it took half the squad into a game but dumped the rest of the squad back to the main menu. I'm getting over the fact that you can only talk with 3 other people, but they need to at least let you do that much!

As far as playing goes, I think I kept Wonderpug a little too entertained with my knifing woes.  I'm just really poor at using the knife and was ecstatic when I finally got someone's tags last night. On the other hand, people have no problem knifing me. You can camp a lot easier in BC that in COD4, but you still need to check your surroundings, because a lot of people in the game have my tags.

One thing I'm confused about is the scoring. Can someone break down how games are scored and points given out? The manual does a crappy (as usual) of going into detail on these things.

You lose points for teamkills and suicides, and gain points for...

kills
assists
kills your vehicle passengers make
repairing teammates' vehicles
healing teammates
healing squadmates (more points than healing teammates)
destroying vehicles
killing an enemy who was about to kill a teammate
killing an enemy who just killed your teammate
damaging a crate
destroying a crate
defusing a crate

Oddly I have absolutely no idea if there's any kind of point reward or incentive to actually win the match.

Yeah, I would love to see a full list of all the ways to get points and their values.  A lot of times I get points and I don't even understand how I got them.  They should just release a PDF like GTA did with the multiplayer manual.

For example, it seems like you might actually get points for simply being near a squad member when they kill someone but I don't know.  I'd definitely like to know the definitions of "kill assist", "squad assist" and their point values, plus all the bonuses, like "avenger", "defense", etc.

I feel like there is a bonus for being on the winning team - my score always seems to be higher than I thought at the end of a match where I am on the winning team, but I could be wrong.

I tried playing at about 7pm eastern and couldn't connect to the EA servers. After 5 or 6 attempts I played SP. Anyone else have trouble?

If there's a guy on artillery that's actually contributing to the team, if he keeps his satellite camera trained on an enemy for a bit he'll light them up on the radar.

I've played with VERY few people who are diligent on the Artie (usually they are the type of people who kill each other to get on the artie...), but when you get someone who is good it can totally swing the battle in your favor- calling out locations of enemies, tanks etc...or as mentioned, lighting them up.

In the full game is there artillery on every map? I hope not.

I haven't seen an artillery gun on any of the other maps.  There probably are, but the fact that I haven't seen one likely means that are not on every map.

When do I show up on my enemies radar?  Obviously, when I'm seen.  But how about when I'm firing my weapon and no one had spotted me?  Is it like COD4 where you are on radar whenever you fire (without a silencer)?

My impression is that you appear on radar if: someone keeps their reticule trained on you long enough (inconsistent), someone shoots you (sometimes I just spray my MG on the usual sniper hangouts and see what lights up), or if a sniper tosses a motion sensor your way.

If there's a guy on artillery that's actually contributing to the team, if he keeps his satellite camera trained on an enemy for a bit he'll light them up on the radar.

And the fact that we have to guess is the reason games are supposed to have real manuals. Stupid EA.
