1241  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Lineage players be nice to your girlfriends! on: February 02, 2005, 09:38:11 PM
You're baseball analogy is wrong anyway.  He took HIS ball and went home, his own property after being injured by being hit in the head.
1242  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / MX1000 mouse question on: January 25, 2005, 12:10:49 AM
I bought it from newegg for $62 to replace my MX700.  I do like it.  It is a bit different in some aspects.  The default setup for the buttons and controls is definitely different.  Stays charged for a very long time with the auto off function and this has had no impact at all in gaming (there is no lag for it to turn on etc).  Took a day or two to get used to the change in buttons but it was no big deal, took me as long to get used to the MX700 over my standard mouse.
1243  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Strange problem... PSU, video card (6600 gt), or heat? on: January 10, 2005, 05:13:50 PM
I had this very same issue when I had a TI4200 installed.  My monitor would go black the powersave light would come on and I would have to hard reboot the PC.  I replaced the video card with a Radeon 9600 and problem went away.

Recently I bought the Albatron 6600GT AGP card from newegg and the problem came right back.  I also noticed a sound stutter at the time of lockup.  I removed my sound card (turtle beach santa cruz) and the problem went away.  I am now using the built in sound on the motherboard (realtek).

After a day and a half of use the 6600 GT card started showing issues clipping, 3-5 second lockups and purple/green bars woudl show in the terrain in WoW.  I RMA'd the card back to newegg and got a refund.

I think there is an issue with Turtle Beach sound cards and possibly the Nvidia drivers si the only thing I can think of.  I was running the latest drivers on both sound and video and no overclocking anything.

1244  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW: enchanting? on: December 20, 2004, 09:29:41 PM
Enchanting is a huge suck hole of resources.  You can do some nice stuff with it.  I have a mage that has tailoring and enchanting.  You can make items right away with tailoring that you can use.  With enchanting you can make them a bit better.  In order to get what you need to enchant items you have to disenchat or break green, blue or god forbid purple items.  You would normally be selling these for money so if you dont have a gruildor group of people to supply you with items to break this can really impact your finances.

Enchanting doesnt really have skill that supports it.  Tailoring is in the same boat although some tailoring items require leather so you could take skinning to get it.  Like mining supports smithing and engineering, skinning supports leatherworking, herbalism supports alchemy.

1245  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / I done Broke Something on: December 20, 2004, 09:22:54 PM
You can do a repair install or try to.  If it works back up your data and I owuld then reformat and do a clean install.

1246  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Anyone try the new logitech mx1000 wireless mouse? on: December 18, 2004, 03:00:15 PM
I current use the MX700 and got the bug to spend some cash so I bought the MX1000 from Newegg for $62 yesterday.  Hopefully it will show up on Monday.

1247  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Can you be on a 56k modem and still have your phone free? on: December 18, 2004, 02:58:59 PM
I talked with someone that used one of those things and he said you could answer the phone and see if it was a call you wanted to take.  If you hung up quick enough you would not get dicsonnected but if you stayed on the phone you lost the internet conenction.

1248  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Back to nVidia I go... (6600 GT AGP) **Now with impressions* on: December 18, 2004, 02:56:57 PM

1249  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW and thier idiot quest programmer on: December 17, 2004, 10:47:42 PM
he did miss quests, there are quests that ask you to go to Loch modan for a delivery from the human lands.  Its pretty easy to fidn somewhere to go and some thing to do in WoW.  You must not be looking very hard if you cant find any quests.

1252  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / [WoW AAR] They said it couldn't be done... on: December 10, 2004, 04:14:02 AM
They toned the deadmines down a bit.  During beta most everything in there was elite.  It was definitely a rough place to go through.  YOu would see multiple groups of 5 going through areas together and if one group fell the second once close behind.

1253  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WOW - Can you get there from here??? on: December 10, 2004, 04:09:37 AM
You fly over a gnomish airfield.  During the beta I think people tried but never were able to get to it.

giving you a bump
1255  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW opposing faction lands? on: November 30, 2004, 06:12:36 PM
yes you will.  The horde and alliance mix in many areas like booty bay and ratchet.  I havent played since beta there is a town south of the shimmering flats that is neutral as well.  There are ares with town for both sides etc so you will see plenty fo the other sides areas.

1256  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / World Of Warcraft to debut week after HL2? on: October 29, 2004, 03:24:29 AM
Actually you didnt say anything like that at all olaf.
1257  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / World Of Warcraft to debut week after HL2? on: October 27, 2004, 09:16:14 PM
Falatar read a little higher the game is fun to play.  It will be ready when they want to release it.  

Where is the fun in ganking someone for no reason?  The PvP actions I have seen  by players is the usual take a bunch of maxed out players and attack a small town where the NPC's and players are too low of a level to have any chance.  Thats how PvP has worked so far from what I have seen.  Since there is no reward at all, why even bother?

1258  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / World Of Warcraft to debut week after HL2? on: October 27, 2004, 08:08:26 PM
Olaf get the chip off your shoulder and reread my post I dont give a darn about PvP as I have no intention of playing that way.  PvP has absolutely no reward at all right now, you get no experience nor do you get a monetary reward so its really a waste of time.  In that regard I dont care if they balance PvP I dont think most players want to play that way anyhow.

1259  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No Coop in Stalker? on: October 27, 2004, 02:53:33 PM
The problem is they have gone back and forth on this.  Initally it was co-op definitely then maybe then no then yes but after release with a patch now its just no.

1260  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / World Of Warcraft to debut week after HL2? on: October 27, 2004, 02:51:24 PM
The game is definitely done enough to be released when they get the last of the talents into the game and thats in the next patch.  They have added/modified a lot of things and no the game is not perfect but it certainly is playable and fun.  I do not play on the PvP server and have no intentions to so I am not commenting on that.  PvP just isnt worth it in my opinion you essentially get nothing from killing a player other than making them do a corpse run.  You can do PvP on the regular servers just walk into an enemy city and you have the PvP flag on automatically or attack any NPC.
