Heh, you don't know how difficult animation is when you've had to animate a minute of animation by hand, then film it by hand.

After doing that, these gif animations just don't impress me much anymore.

Wow.  What a way to waste a license.
8723  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Metal Gear Signature on: May 10, 2006, 02:18:15 PM
Too big and gaudy.  I never liked big signature images, especially animated ones.  They always seemed like a form of narcissism.

If you really have to have an image based signature, make it a very small banner.  Remember, if your skills MGSO are really as good as you want your signature to imply, you don't need a big sig to show it, because otherwise that's just compensating.  slywink
8724  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty - well that was weird on: May 01, 2006, 10:23:42 AM
I think Raiden was a good idea, but executed very poorly.  It really could have showed Snake from a different perspective, but that's assuming Raiden comes into a character on his own, which he never does.

And of course, they should have had the viewpoint switch between Snake and Raiden at some time to give more playtime as Snake.

8726  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Too Human on: April 27, 2006, 02:50:43 AM
I'm most interested in the 2-4 player co-op over system link that they mentioned.  Unfortunately, they say they can only support 1 person per console, but who knows, they may find enough extra power to put another player on screen.
8727  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is Dreamfall: TLJ compatable with the 360? on: April 23, 2006, 08:31:04 AM
As per the title, I'm wondering if Dreamfall, just released on Xbox1, can be played on the 360?
8728  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Garry's mod to be commercial on: April 23, 2006, 08:21:46 AM

It's a Half-Life 2 mod that basically turns the game into a physics sandbox game.  Using the source engine physics and built in scripting you can do all sorts of wacky things like post characters, script new gametypes, even create some cool Rube Goldberg type devices using common objects and physics.

Someone's used the mod to pose characters and make a pretty good webcomic with it.

heh.  Jarrodhk and i come from the "if i kill them all, they can't tell anyone they saw me" school of stealth, as far as PDZ goes.

Ah, a woman after my own heart.  Tongue

And thankfully, I've got an inch thick strike plate covering it.  slywink

Whoah, wait, 4 player co-op through the SP campaign?

I'm sold already.  Ever since my friends and I got the LAN working over here we often get together to play co-op games.

So, any starforce on this one?  I know H5 was SF free, but what about this game?

But, if anyone wants to post a hint for me in a spoiler tag, that would be cool too.  A really, really small hint though please.  I want to at least fool myself into thinking I got the puzzle mostly on my own.

Spoiler for Hiden:

Think, "circus physics".
8733  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Batman: The Animated Series on: April 15, 2006, 09:11:37 AM
If you like Batman, you should definitely checkout Gargoyles the animated series if you haven't already.

I'm a big fan of Foster's Home for Imaginary friends for non voilent cartoons.
8734  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: April 15, 2006, 08:59:02 AM
Well the problem is that it's asking me for an admin password to open my 1.52 pitboss saves.  It never requested a save for them before, and it didn't even prompt me for one when I created the game.

It seems this is a confirmed bug/problem, there was a workaround for it, and maybe I can get it to work.
8735  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Garry's mod to be commercial on: April 14, 2006, 06:53:55 PM
The key here is that this isn't just another new mod with all its bugs and problems.  Garry's mod has become basically a sandbox game of its own with a lot of quality programming behind it.  Seriously they have some complex systems in game that allows the mod to do all the cool things that it can do now.
8736  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Garry's mod to be commercial on: April 14, 2006, 10:37:21 AM
In all honesty, he wouldn't have released a new version at all if it wasn't for the deal they have on now.

If he can get some money for all his hard work then I'm all for it.

The new version is supposed to work with all Source engined games, right out of the box.

In essence, you're not paying for the mod, you're paying for the next version and all future updates.  The current version 9.04 remains free as a kind of demo.
8737  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: April 13, 2006, 09:11:05 PM
The 1.61 patch for Civ 4 was just released.

Unfortunately, in the process of updating, it borked the pitboss saves so now I can't load them.
8738  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wal-Mart controls what games you play on: April 11, 2006, 08:18:57 PM
I think quite a few short sighted publishers do this, but I suspect the games made for mature audiences don't bother with this tripe since wal mart doesn't carry.

8740  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: April 10, 2006, 01:10:05 AM
They're working on it right now and it's advanced quite a bit since then.
8741  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Kameo coop patch, new content released! on: April 09, 2006, 07:18:38 AM
I just tried it with the patch, co-op is still limited to those few short levels.  So if you're looking for a lot of co-op gameplay, look elsewhere.

Also the levels don't really make use of the co-op mode.  You simple go through the levels with a few more monsters than before.
8742  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / I spy with my little eye... on: April 07, 2006, 07:24:41 AM
It's also a bit creepy if you think about it, how much information about your gaming habits it has gathered.

I think gamefly also gets slower and slower the longer you stay with them.

Of course, you can always switch back when gamefly gets slow, then switch again when gamerang gets slow again.
8744  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bethesda charge for mods?!? on: April 07, 2006, 07:04:39 AM
It was confirmed that the horse armor content was already on the CD, the update you buy in Live and on that site really just unlocks it.

Also, this Horse armor stuff that they're touting as new was something they had already said was in the game in earlier interviews.

So that basically means they held it back just to release it online.  No thanks.

Now, the other mods they have on that site, the Wizards tower and the astrolab things they have, I might buy those since that's actually new content.

Overall, If I want new content I'll just buy the PC version and use mods.  As I know for sure that once the modeling tools come out someone will make a horse armor mod.  Heck, someone probably already has a horse armor mod out, but with no extra textures.  I know someone has already added saddlebags to horses.
8745  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Kameo coop patch, new content released! on: April 07, 2006, 06:59:10 AM
Yeah, they said they would do updates for both Kameo and PDZ over live.

Is Co-op in kameo still limited to those few short levels?

I'd really like to play with my sister the whole way through, but it's a pain to have to play, unlock the level in co-op, then only get to play a small segment of it.

I mean, if it's still the same co-op as before there's not much point to this update.

I'm more waiting for the PDZ update, they said they would add in Counter-Op, where one player is Joanna and everyone else are mooks on single player levels.  Basically, other players take over the AI as they get killed.

Hopefully they also fix the laggy aim.
8746  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360/japan] Ninty-Nine Nights (aka N3) on: April 07, 2006, 06:50:51 AM
I hear it's getting a lukewarm reception in Japan.  But, I suppose here if they make is basically a dynasty warriors clone with lots more units on screen, it won't do too bad.
8747  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion: Playable in 3P Mode? on: April 06, 2006, 06:00:50 AM
Not only is there a mod that puts a crosshair in third person mode, but it also gets rid of the delay they put on the third person camera so it feels like a traditional third person camera.

Normally, you don't get any gold at all in random animals.

I've seen it about twice in my play time up to level 13.
8749  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chrono Trigger (formerly: Now You're Talking) on: April 05, 2006, 07:28:17 AM
My suggestion is to make sure you play Final Fantasy 6, widely considered one of the best FF games to date.
8750  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] First Oblivion Mod up on Live on: April 04, 2006, 08:39:56 AM
Just give it a month after the 3D exporter tools are released and there'll be better horse armor.  Heck, maybe even mounted combat.  Tongue
8751  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is King Kong 360 worth playing through? on: April 03, 2006, 10:26:50 AM
Not worth it from the demo I played.  Besides, you already know the story, and the gameplay mechanics aren't alll that great.  There's plenty of other great games out now that you can play.
8752  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A Bob Ross video game is in the works on: April 02, 2006, 10:46:34 AM
It's like Mario Paint, without the crappiness.

I still remember mario paint, and think this is a very good idea, especially if they use the revolution controller.
8753  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Turtle's Massive Civilization 4 Pitboss Game on: April 02, 2006, 10:30:16 AM
It's a really interesting situation on the server right now.

There's basically 2 superpowers in Varity and Dandridge, although my Inca just started my big bid for power by sweeping northward to conquer Germany.

Germany has little in the way of a military, so the conquest should go smoothly.  I confirmed this by using an open border agreement to scout his lands.

To my southeast I have EJL, who is fittingly playing the Aztecs.  I guess he's still ticked off about my sneak attack earlier that took one city.  After my initial attack he sued for peace and I accepted, as I only wanted that city to act as a choke point.  He'd been conquering his neighbors in rapid succession so I knew eventually he'd get to me.

He used the ceasefire well, chosing to attack right after I declared war on Germany.  Thankfully I had foresight to keep enough units close to home so his attack, while quite strong, isn't too much of a worry.  I have enough to delay him long enough so that I can shift units from my mid territories to the south.  I also bargained for the nearby AI, The Greeks, to attack him as well, as they shared my religion he didn't need much convincing.  I'll probably lose the city that I had just taken from him, but it'll cost him either way.

I also had an Axeman near his territory watching for an attack, I moved him to a tile with both a hill and a forest, just as a very large stack Aztec of units moved next to him.  In essence, that axeman is now quite a thorn in the Aztec's side.  Attacking the axeman will likely result in the loss of one or more units, it has already delayed the movement of that large unit stack.  If he chooses to bypass the axeman, I can march him into enemy territory and start pillaging.

Unless Germany pulls units out of nowhere, or another opponent attacks me, I'll be fine.  However, things could very well spiral out of control into the first world war of the pre-medieval era as various alliances come into play.

Sorry you guys are having such difficulties connecting.  I'm hoping the next patch will be released soon so the game will be more stable.  I'll probably start a new server and a new game with more balanced settings.

Probably the Balanced map script to make sure everyone starts out on even footing.  Probably segment into various continents too.
8754  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tomb Raider Legend demo impressions on: April 02, 2006, 10:27:38 AM
Well the way I see it, I can rent console games, and I'm sure there'll be quite a few people selling their copies after they're done with the game.

I'm more a PC gamer, but some games lend themselves to consoles more.  The primary reason why I have a console is that I can rent games.
8755  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Wasn't planetside supposed to be free? on: April 02, 2006, 10:21:17 AM
I'm in with a new station account.

You can't use an old account, but it's easy enough to make a new one.

I'm in on Markov (US West) as the Terran Republic, only because my other friend was going to play TR.

I think my main guy will be a heavy tanker again.  I hope they've improved the MBTs since I last played, as they were just very large targets that took up two at least infantry to operate.  Not to mention everyone and their mother was toting around anti armor weaponry.
8756  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Can you play Half-Life 2 [Steam] Offline? on: April 02, 2006, 10:17:02 AM
I've played HL2 while my net connection was down and it ran just fine.  It takes some time for steam to recognize that there's no net connection, but once it does it'll let you run steam offline.

Just make sure you check the status of HL2 in the steam menu by right clicking it and going to properties.  It should clearly state in that menu if it's ready to be played offline.

Heh, I took a history of animation class and you'd be amazed what they had the flintstones characters selling in commercials.  One spot had Fred and Barney smoking cigarettes and talking about how great they are.

Of course, no one will show these anymore.

Yes, teh 4200 is too old for it, that card doesn't have even Shader 2.0 specs on it.  I know, it was my last card before I went to the an ATI 9800.

These latest games, the ones competing with the likes of the Xbox 360, use a lot of shaders to handle their lighting and special effects.

The 4200 is from a time when such shaders were only just beginning to get complicated.
