Group size is five.  

You can put together a raid group but that is mostly for high level instances and puts damper on the experience quite a bit.  Lot of the raids in high end are max level so the EXP hit is a non-issue.

A friend of mine has a BMW 740IL 2000 model with built in navigation and it is cool as all get out.  Has the cool factor and its very helpful, you can program it to remember certain places or even find things like nearest golf course (it is a 740IL) or hospital.

1245  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Jersey to try to ban smoking while driving on: July 25, 2005, 11:15:02 PM
It is not about what you think or what you feel is right.  It is about where does government legislation end and a persons rights begin.  Keep giving up you're rights and soon enough you wont have any.
1246  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Jersey to try to ban smoking while driving on: July 25, 2005, 10:20:58 PM
Ok Dafones.  So lets see you shouldn't drink a soda or coffee while driving, you shouldn't eat while driving and maybe you shouldn't even hold a conversation while driving so you can put a full 100% of your attention on driving.  Whats after smoking? lets see take the radio out of the vehicle, listening is distracting.

Where do my rights end?  Shall we legislate so that a person cannot smoke in his/her house?

Maybe the government can tell us what we should be doing at any moment in the day so that way we can keep everyone else safe and not hurt anyone elses feelings.  We will be supplied a government approved schedule for every day of our life, cause they must know better.
1247  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Jersey to try to ban smoking while driving on: July 25, 2005, 12:42:58 PM

First they complain about cell phones and now smoking.  I find it funny since some studies found that tuning the radio is more distracting than talking on the phone.  

Where the heck do we end this kind of crap?

No I am not a smoker (unless I am on fire) and I live in Georgia, so this doesn't affect me.
1248  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Just made a bid on a house! on: July 25, 2005, 11:25:36 AM
Be patient.  The only thing worse than trying to buy a home is being the seller.  Try to find out how long it has been listed.  If it has been up for a while dont worry, wait a month then come back with another offer.

If not well there are other houses.
1249  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / CAT5 vs CAT6, braided vs. solid wiring on: July 21, 2005, 07:56:47 PM
check I have seen 1000 foot rolls that come with ends and crimpers for like $49.99 + shipping which if I remember was reasonable.

I just checked and they have a network kit of 1000 feet Cat5e with ends and crimpers for $39.99 + shipping.
1250  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / CAT5 vs CAT6, braided vs. solid wiring on: July 20, 2005, 11:57:01 PM
Go with Cat-5 unless you can find somewhere to get Cat-6 as cheap.  The extra bandwidth is a moot point unless you intend to do lots of large file transfers.

If that data is not static but time sensitive then give it up.  Look at the time and expense it will take to recover the data and will it still be useful after that.

Did you take one for a test drive?
1253  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hybrid car info on: July 19, 2005, 12:14:11 AM
There was a discussion going on about the Prius.  Anyway in my Science 204 class at DeVry I need to write a paper and am working on hybrids.  Anyone own a hybrid or have experience with one?  I would like to hear it.

What was your overall experience?

What did you particularly like about the vehicle?

What were the negatives of the vehicle?

After the experience what was your overall take on hybrids and the technology behind it?

Things like that I would like to know.  Post here or e-mail me.

1257  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / I bought SWG...again on: June 17, 2005, 06:13:12 PM
I would be interested in hearing what the game is like now as well.  You can get a package with all the expansions for liek $24.99 I think at BestBuy.  A buddy of mine is playing it again and says it is fun to play, he ahs only just started again and has all the expansions.

Apparently you are issued some sort of ship and vehicles to travel with now.
1258  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / My PC goes to hell (help!) on: June 14, 2005, 04:33:09 PM
Go to system properties and look under the startup and recovery tab.  The default is to automatically restart the PC if there is a "system failure".  Uncheck that box.  The program you are running might be crashing for some reason and its seen as a failure and causes the system to reboot.  With that unchecked you may crash the program but it will give you an idea of the program or perhaps you will get a message that will point you in the right direction.

I turn this off on every computer I use or setup for myself.  I haven't had any ill effects from doing so.

Warlocks get the Felsteed which they summon to them.  I do not know if there is a cost since I have not played a Warlock up to 50 but everyone has todl me they are free, you do a quest or something.
1260  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW newbie on: June 13, 2005, 10:49:48 PM
The trick with a warlock is that they have no root spells.  If something gets past the pet then its usually time to run.  The voidwalker is definitely you're best buddy when you get him for a long time.

Warlocks also get a "free" mount like the pally

Based on what they are saying in that release they are shooting pretty high.  I see a lot of problem areas especially in the ship combat system and the number of player required to crew them.  They say they will fill in with NPC's but how good will they be?

Oh no I am red shirt number 5 that means I am going to DIE
1263  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / So how is WoW going? on: June 07, 2005, 03:49:26 PM

1264  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / 2 Months Later-Help My Hardware Please! on: June 04, 2005, 02:57:26 PM

I use a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card as I like the fleibility of the versa jack.  I had issues when I had an Nvidia graphics card where my monitor would go into power save and not come back.  I switched to an ATI card and that problem is gone.  There seemed to be a conflict between the drivers, I switched to the onboard sound and the problem went away.  I did not like the sound quality of the onboard sound and it caused some bleedthrough when I used teamspeak, players could hear the game and me despite me using headphones.

However I very rarely will get a sound "stutter" in playing games, only happens in games.  It is not repeatable just seems to be a random occurance.  It does not affect the game only the sound, in other words it doesnt create lag for me game continues on normally.   This happens in any game I run.  I do not know if somehow the card "bottlenecks" for a moment or what.  I have the latest driver that they released for WinXP which is not WHQL certified.

Due to a power supply issue I recently replaced most of my components.

Video Card
Power Supply - 2 fans in it plus 4 in my case
CPU - same type from another PC AMD 2500 Barton
Hard drive - larger one was on sale

After all that and a fresh install of WinXP Pro current with all service packs and patches, I still occasionly have the sound stutter.
1265  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Trying to get into my BIOS on: June 02, 2005, 05:35:10 PM
Use auto detect for to pick up the drive.  If everything is set right it should find it.  Boot into the operating system (I am assuming windows) and see if the drive shows up.  If it is there right click and do a quick format and you are done.  If it doesnt show in windows then you need to check the BIOS and possibly the jumpers on the drive if its not in the BIOS.

I didnt name anyone in particular.  I just think that there seems to be a set of people that no matter what is done by Blizzard they are going to bash them for it.  Blizzard could give them an account free for a year and they would find fault with that somehow, times not long enough or what ever.

Just because I posted after you does not mean I singled you out.
1271  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW -- Level 60 kills level 10 -- No dishonor. Huh????? on: May 04, 2005, 05:33:10 PM
And on this board the ones that do not like it seem to be the loudest.

We should change the name on this forum to Bash WoW.
1272  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW -- Level 60 kills level 10 -- No dishonor. Huh????? on: April 30, 2005, 02:31:54 PM
The only way to get a dishonorable kill right now is to kill an NPC marked as a Civilian.

The trouble with having a DK or penalty for killing a player is the intentional low level ones jumping into combat just to give DK's to players.  How do you figure out what were intentional kills versus the asshats they are trying to give other players DK's.  There is no good way to do it so right now no player kill has a penalty.
1273  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / *Sigh* My first gripe with Steam on: April 24, 2005, 04:58:45 PM
You should be able to change your account info.

My first steam experience was buying a brand new sealed copy of Halflife 2 only to be told my key was already in use.  Luckily I bought it at Target and was able to return it for another copy.  My second copy worked fine.  I was not going to jack around with waiting for another CD and all the other hoops I would have to jump through to use software I had just purchased.

1275  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Guild Wars Beta Impressions? on: April 17, 2005, 05:43:33 PM
Like most games this game is a bit boring solo.  If you are playing with a friend it s a lot better.  I played with some five man grops that were all friends of mine and it was a good time.  Solo is bleh since just about everything is an instance.
1276  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW 1.4.0 patch notes on: April 11, 2005, 03:35:58 PM
Kills are supposed to be tallied at the end of each day arent they.  They a pool of points and at the end of each day they points are then divided up amongst all players participating right?
1277  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Which Game to Get? on: April 06, 2005, 11:45:38 PM
Guild wars is NOT geared toward soloing.  The instances you go into require a group to be able to complete it.  If you cannot find players for a group you can "rent" NPC's to fill positions.  You can only have one type of an NPC rented at a time.  The available NPC's are limited sometimes to only certain classes being available; for instance only 3 NPC's in an area.  The NPC's are only so good since they are AI.  In my limited beta experience the healers were pretty good at thier role, other types only so-so.
1278  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Guild Wars? on: April 05, 2005, 11:12:33 PM
There is no monthly fee.  It is not an MMORPG of the true sort.  the only place where you are with other people is in the "city/town" zones before you start out on a quest.  The quests and this includes travelling to a new area are all instanced for your group.  You can solo but will be doing so accomponied by NPC's you can "rent" sort of to fill places in the group not filled by regular people.  The instances are set for a certain number of players and you really need to at least have close to what it calls for to complete it.  From what I understand of it the instances are handed off from the server where you meet up to the players computers that is why there is no fee; it does not require a huge backend infrastructure to support it.  The graphics are very good the quests I have done are very linear with a few deviations for bonus quests.

I wouldnt compare guild wars to any mmorpg out there its just not the same.
1279  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Which Game to Get? on: April 05, 2005, 06:33:21 PM
If you do not want any subscription fee's then guild wars is the best choice.  If you go and get a pre-order box you can play it on the upcoming beta weekend april 15th - 17th.  Pre-order box is $10 at BestBuy and you get a code to invite a friend to the beta weekends.

WoW is solo friendly to a point.  You wont be doing any instance dungeons by yourself, groups can be pretty easy to find.  Draw back on this is a monthly fee to play.

EQ2 is not solo friendly.  You need groups to do more than the simplest of quests.  It has a pretty complex crafting system setup, certain crafted items are required to "level" up your skills.  You can craft them or buy them from some one.

COH.  Havent played this one.
