I like the mech game so far.  I've got a lot of free time at work lately, so thank you for adding something fun to do.

I agree, it's interesting. Also makes me want to fire up my old Titans of Steel, still my favorite mech game.

I kind of gave up on Black Ops 2 and didn't bother with Ghosts, but so far I'm interested in Titanfall. The maps do look sizable. I'd be getting it for the X360; will I be missing content or qualities that are only on Next Gen?

Weird. I like the old name way better.

Everybody who has been able to get to the forum has been of that opinion.

The game has been coming along nicely, with new features and interesting play elements. However, they need to do some code optimization, as the game now seems to run slow on my machine whereas before it was fine.

I also did not even capture a live alien until I had plasma weapons and titan armor.
Wow, I would never have thought of even trying that. I have always gone through alien research before plasma. Maybe I'm playing the game wrong? I do know I'm always out of money right after I get my budget; I must be spending too much on facilities early on.
125  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Incognita by Klei - turn-based tactical espionage on: January 17, 2014, 06:44:06 AM
Well, this is awkward icon_neutral

Klei has changed the game name of Incognita to Invisible, Inc.

It's awkward because there is already a company called Invisible, Inc. From their website:
Quote
Our Invisible, Inc. family of technology companies has developed and grown in Eau Claire, becoming a complete technologies resource for Chippewa Valley businesses and beyond. Our concern has been, and always will be, to provide small, medium and large businesses the services and products not just to serve them today, but to escort them into their future. Utilizing the shared resources of our specific divisions, we have done that exceptionally well for hospitals, schools, and businesses large and small.

We know technology, from the structured cabling within your walls, to the computers, printers and networks you operate on, to the telephone systems and presentation equipment you communicate with, to your security, surveillance and fire/life systems that help to protect your facility. We provide area businesses the right equipment, supplies, service and repair to keep each area of their business or organization moving at optimum speed and efficiency.

Wonder how they fell about being associated with an espionage game?

Also, never good to give a game a name that ends in a period. Can be confusing... nod

And who is confused even more is Steam. They no longer have a game called Incognita... or Invisible, Inc. on their site. And my list of games in Steam under the main menu header (next to Community, at the top of the Steam site) doesn't show either game (oops!). It does show up in my Library and I can play it from there. I also liked the name Incognita  icon_frown

I've come to you fine folks because Google hasn't been much help. I'm trying to find an iOS app for my iTouch that will encrypt and decrypt a text file. I'm not looking for text message encryption (I've seen those), what I'm trying to find is something that will encrypt a .txt file.

I'm confused regarding the EXALT missions. They mention how you can jam the EXALT weapons by doing something, but I'm not sure what they mean, and I wasn't able to achieve it during the mission. What is it exactly I'm supposed to do?
Do you mean the one where there's a laptop with a little spinning doohickey on it surrounded by a green beam fence of sorts?

I think on that one, the "capture" zone is that area marked by that green beam fence. You can send your covert ops guy over to the larger spinning beacons to hack EXALT and I assume cause some sort of pause in their sending reinforcements. I was confused on that one because the objectives had big numbers on them (usually, like with the Meld, it's a turn-limit) but it didn't seem to have any sort of turn limit. I just kept my guys around the green "capture" zone and offed the EXALT guys until they stopped arriving.

The more common EXALT mission has two spinning beacon things that your covert ops guy (he usually starts on the far side of the map) needs to hack by moving adjacent to it and right clicking.

Hope that helps.  icon_smile Post a screenshot if you're still unsure. If it has the green beam fence capture spot, it's the first one I described above.

Thanks, it is indeed the one with the green fence. I'll give your suggestions a try.

Any tips for getting the second meld containers? I generally miss it. I generally start a mission having 2 groups of 3 dash in separate directions which helps me find the first one, but by then I am fighting and struggling to find the second in decent time.

For me it's hit and miss, getting that second container. What I try to do is have one fast soldier and send it out as a scout. It's ended up costing me a soldier occasionally crybaby.

I was doing OK on Enemy Within till I got to the mission with the semi-sunk ship...
Spoiler for Hiden:
Holy crap, what an awful mission! I even restarted it after finding the zombies the first time. Still didn't help. I lost my entire squad in the end. And they died badly icon_eek

I just picked up Enemy Within because of the sale, but figured I'd wait to get around to playing it, having other things on my plate. However, I fired it up just to take a look at it. That was three hours ago... icon_biggrin. XCOM:EU was pretty awesome, but it's been several months since I've touched it. And so far with XCOM:EW, I'm impressed. The story telling is so good. I hope someone gets clever and adapts the engine for something really out of the XCOM box (turn based Wild West gunfights?).

Ah, I never did post that I found the solution. I took the Almond from it's location as a range extender and moved it to the back of my wife's computer and made it a router and wireless access point (it became a router connected by ethernet, downstream of my existing router). The Almond now sits much closer to my living room, giving me excellent wireless coverage there. I didn't bother with a firmware update to my Netgear router, as moving the Almond seemed to fix my rebooting issues.

I'll also note that the Almond is incredibly easy to set up. After hooking up the wires in the new location it took all of about twenty seconds to set it up as a router and wireless access point, although I did go to their forum just to ask if it was possible to have a router downstream of a router in a home network.

Hey, potentially dumb X360 question relating to Games with Gold. I happened to see that earlier in this thread it mentioned that Rainbow Six Vegas was the September game. I thought I had downloaded it but when I went to the dashboard and looked at "My Games" it wasn't shown. However, when I searched the marketplace for the game it said that yes, I owned it and would I like to download it again?

So my question is, is there a place on the dashboard that will show me games like that, ones I've bought (or got free) but deleted from my hard drive?

Looks like the January games have been announced, and they finally have a good, somewhat recent game in Sleeping Dogs and there will also be Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.

I had Sleeping Dogs but traded it in when I couldn't get past the martial arts combat in some places. So I guess I'll give it another try, seeing how it is free and all  Roll Eyes

And right in the middle of the Steam Sale I get an email from my bank saying that someone attempted to use my credit card in a Walmart 3000 miles away from us. Thankfully between Walmart and my bank they declined the card and notified me right away. The card is cancelled and no financial damage to me, except that if there's something I need on the Steam Sale I have use use my wife's card. It could have been a lot worse. And no, I don't shop at Target  icon_wink

I had played the original when it came out but really remember little about it. Anyway, I figure I'll be on JC2 MP in a couple of hours, just to see the craziness for myself.

I was just on a server with 1000 other players, and everything seemed to be running smooth.  I think the biggest server I saw had room for 10K players.

I played through JC2 on the 360 and even though it's pretty cheap right now on Steam (80% off), is it worth getting it just for the MP mod? Is the gameplay organized at all, or just a bunch of running around and random shooting?

Also, should I pick up the JC2 collection with all the DLC, or is the basic game enough to enjoy the MP mod?

UPDATE: And one more question, is there any requirement to complete some portion of the SP game before being able to play in the MP mod?

Thanks for any answers you might be able to provide  icon_biggrin

Something you didnt explicitly state in your first post...

Before you got the almond, you would simply be stuck in the loop? What was the solution... reboot the router?

Yeah, I should have made myself clearer, the problem existed before the Almond. I thought getting it might strengthen the signal and fix my problem. It didn't. And yes, rebooting the router fixed the problem each time.
155  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Home network connection dropout issues on: December 13, 2013, 02:13:34 AM
I'm having an issue with the wireless network in my home, so I'm hoping you smart folks might be able to help me. I got a Securifi Almond range extender to try to solve the issue, but  it turns out to be something I think that is in the router. It's a recent problem, which is weird because I've had my Netgear Rangemax WPN824 v3 router for years, but this problem has only occurred the past couple of weeks.

I'll have my netbook (yup, I still have one of those) logged on to my wireless network, either directly from the Netgear wireless or from the Almond (the Almond creates a second network). Suddenly, after several hours or maybe a day or two, the netbook will say that the link has limited or no connectivity. If I try to reconnect to the same network link, the status will loop through authenticating, then obtaining IP address, then back to authenticating, and so on. Oddly, if I try to connect to the other wireless network, IE either the original Netgear net or the Almond second network, the connection is made right away. Also weirdly, it doesn't matter which is the original network I'm connected to; when it drops out, the other works fine.

Now I thought the problem might be the netbook, but I eliminated this as the likely source of my problem when I found that my Nexus tablet exhibited the exact same behavior.

I haven't updated the firmware in the router in forever on the theory of don't mess with what works. However, I'm holding off messing with that, hoping that some great minds here can identify a more obvious solution to the problem.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

The race creator is a lot of fun, at least for me (I'm a suppressed course designer I guess). I've posted seven of them so far. I've only been able to get other folks to play one so far, but I guess there is a deluge of new courses out there, so it's to be expected.
157  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Grand Theft Auto V on: December 12, 2013, 03:39:22 AM
The new online creator has been patched into the game. I've made a new race and published it, the title is "Take Me Around The World!". Unsurprisingly, it's a race around the whole island. One lap is about nine plus minutes. My handle in GTAV Online is "jztemple2", you can search for the race on the Rockstar GTAVOL site, then search by crew, friends or whatever.

The creator for races is easy to use, I'll probably be playing with it a lot before I try my hand at the Deathmatch creator.

So is this just EXTREME Minecraft Creative Mode?  It looks neat but part of the appeal for MC for me is that you have to work for the materials you use.

Yeah, I was wondering about that as well, as I have played a lot of Minecraft in Survivor mode. So far FC:E is like creative mode in MC, but I'm only an hour into what is a pre-alpha, I'm sure there are a lot of bells and whistles to come.
160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: FortressCraft Evolved - Early Access [PC/Steam] on: December 11, 2013, 05:33:51 AM
A few more shots of the customs blocks I made. One block is a 5x5, the other is an 8x8, which is the largest you can make in the game. You build them in workshops and then they are available as custom blocks that fit together like a normal 1x1 block. Interesting points are that both are hollow and include window blocks so they are partially see through. Also, there is no required symmetry for the types of blocks used; this is shown by the "JT" I built as part of one wall.

I did try building a custom block using other custom blocks, but it didn't let me do it. Either it's not allowed or I made a mistake while constructing it.
