2603  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / 20% off WoW strat guide at ebgames.com on: November 20, 2004, 03:35:15 PM
I realize all mmorpg guides are outdated a bit at release, but if you are looking for nice colored maps and some crafting info., ebgames.com has 20% on all startegy guides.  Not sure if this is just for today or not, so don't wait.  The collectors edition would be just $23.99.
The cool thing about the collectors edition guide is that when brady updates the guide periodically, you can get the updates from their site.  I understand all of the info. can be found from somewhere off the net, but if you are like me, i'd like to have it all neatly assembled in one book and not have to spend the time wasting ink on copying it myself.
Enter code HB20.

Ok i'll be the first to start a thread about a concern i'm sure alot will have.  I've played the first 10 minutes so far and i'm getting what i would consider mediocre performance.
My system:
Althon 2400
1g ram
I'm running at 1024 and at what i would condsider moderate settings and i'm getting stuttering and breaks in rendering.  Anyone else?

2617  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 early release legal question on: November 12, 2004, 03:14:35 PM
Ya i'm really not sure how to technically answer your original question.  If you go to the steam forums there are a million threads about this type of topic so i'm sure there might be atleast 1 reasonable answer.
As far as needing an internet connection to play the single player, my argument is that if you have a computer with a $200-$400 video card in it you more than likely will have internet access.  However, i can see alot of uninformed folks buying it and after installing getting upset because they can't register it because they didn't read the box that says internet connection required.  I got a feeling alot of returns are in the works for this game with some unhappy folks.
To tell you the truth, i'm getting disgusted as the days go by about this release.  I've ordered from steam, but the way it's been handled all around is leaving a nasty taste in my mouth.
Sorry i couldnt answer the original question, i'm sure someone here will soon.   :lol:

hey jztemple, would someone with no prior city building type games find it rather painless to jump into and learn?
i've never played any of the city building type games because it always seemed too tedious to me.  however, i've kept an eye on this for a while now and really have some interest in it.  yet, i don't want to try it out and realize i'm in over my head.
would a newcomer to this game type feel comfortable and does the tutorials do a good job of teaching a newbie?

2622  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Got $3500 and need a car, help me choose on: November 09, 2004, 04:02:59 AM
To make a long story short, we are in need of a back-up vehicle for my wife to travel back and forth to work in and we got $3500 to work with.  We are looking to get something that'll last for approximately 2 years so i can get done with school and we can splurge for something newer.
Therefore, something decent on gas and just something that has typically been reliable across the board as far as general maintenance goes.  We made the mistake a couple years back of not asking questions before we went shopping and ended up getting something that rated horrible by consumer report.
The only requirements is that it's not a truck.  We have a toddler that might have to ride occasionally so we don't want a truck.  Any make and models someone might suggest we look at and some to avoid at all costs?

2627  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 cd key questions and steam on: November 05, 2004, 07:06:25 PM
ok good.  ya i've been playing cs source a bit but my concern came when you try to start HL source or DoD source it brings a window up that asks if you want to register it or not and i know i didn't get a key.
so that i understand, when those games are unlocked, i'll just need my account info. and no key, correct?
2628  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 cd key questions and steam on: November 05, 2004, 03:01:20 PM
Got a question............i've got HL2 and all of the silver package games updated as much as possible.  However, i read threads all the time about cd keys and i just realized i was never given any.  Am i missing something here?  The reason i ask is because if i start HL1 or DoD source, it puts up a window that has a place to register my products with a key, which i never got.  
Should i have gotten a key or am i alright?  I just checked my confirmation email after i purchased the silver package a few weeks ago and there's no key.

Alright i got it working!  I'm downloading all the mods now.  Might now get around to playing till tomorrow night.  Got a couple quick questions about the downloads though.........
there seems to be 2 links for the community bonus packs, the first being the link you have that says "community bonus pack 2 volume 1 and 2 and the other a link that says cbp1.  is those the same mod or do i need them both?  also the "community bonus pack 2 vol. 1 and 2" link takes me to just 1 single download, is that correct?  is vol. 1 and 2 together in the same download?

ok guys i got the regualr dvd edition but i'm getting a critical error as soon as i start to install.
the error says something like "failed reading source file...............(the parameter is incorrect)"
The media source may be bad. If installing from a cd please clean the to remove any dirt, check your cd drive or try again.

I've been installing and uninstalling games on this drive weekly without ever seeing a message like this.  Any help?

if so, i'll holler when i pick a copy up and i'm ready to play.
2636  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How to get an estimate on baseball cards? on: November 02, 2004, 01:24:28 PM
ya i think i'll just buy a guide and just go card by card and realize it's gonna take awhile to get it done and then see a collector.
2637  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How to get an estimate on baseball cards? on: November 02, 2004, 04:33:37 AM
ya i was hoping not to have to do that since i got hundreds.  most if not all are in excellent to mint condition.  i just don't have the patience to go card to card if i didn't have to.
thanks  Tongue
2638  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How to get an estimate on baseball cards? on: November 02, 2004, 03:57:31 AM
An honest estimate would be more like it.  
Here's the situation, i have what i would say is several hundred or near a thousand baseball cards i'd like to get rid of.  I know i could find a local collector to look at them, but is there a way to know how honest someone would be and for me not to get ripped off?  I was a semi serious collector in the late 80's and remember buying some specific cards to add to my collection.  Therefore i gotta believe i have a decent amount of $$ in this collection i'd like to maybe cash in on.  I also have some old football cards, ie. late 70's 80's, i'm thinking might be worth something.
All in all i think i have some money in these i don't want to get ripped off over.  Is anyone here a serious collector that can help me out or have some advice on where to get some help?  If you do, shoot me an email at [email protected].
