12001  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HDTV recommendations for console gaming on: August 13, 2007, 06:36:30 PM
Hi all, sorry if this is not in the right forum.  I am looking for recommendations for an HDTV for use, amongst other things, with an Xbox 360.  I am looking for something in the 40 - 42" range LCD TV.  What I am not clear on is if I need full 1080p or will 720p be ok.  There's a lot of brands I am also not familiar with.  Does anyone have any glowing recommendations for a TV?  I saw some great prices at Costco, but I am nervous to make a plunge without some prodding slywink

Thanks much!

63 now and loving it.  I am ending the content that I did in the Beta, so it's going to be new stuff for me soon!

Been having some pvp fun in this patch.  Lots of people turning out to try and get some goodies.  My build sucks all to hell though...I had one picked out based on the latest Beta push and the Rogue talent trees released to retail were a little bit different.  Still a nice shot in the arm while waiting for the xpack to come out.

Yeah WTF was with that?

I think I'm going to respec to a more PVP viable build, especially with all the cool loot to earn.

Combat Swords ain't gonna cut it.

Yeah I have 40 points in combat right now, but it's ugly as hell.  I don't like my filler one bit.  I'll be looking forward to the final talent tree changes, so I can nail down something good for leveling in the xpack.

Thanks for the heads up, I held out on getting a Wii since this was coming to the cube later.

Seems that the patch is an old build.  I saw a couple things last night that were very old on the beta servers, but were released on this live patch.  I wasn't able to login until later, so I missed a lot of the patch day madness.  I hear Arenas (yeah skirmish only) are not working?

Well...I couldn't check out to get the freaking code.  I even had the stupid verification question..."What's 16 plus 1?"...but no freaking code...stupid POS checkout procedure....I'm done. disgust

Yeah it asked me what's 10 plus 5, by the time it processed my answer, it said sold out.

It was less than 15 seconds from when the page came up and it sold out...no code for me.

Awesome movie, I really enjoyed this one!  I had my doubts about Daniel Craig when it was announced that he would be Bond, but those are put to rest for good now.  Also, Eva Green is smoking hot in this movie.

YES I CAN FINALLY AFFORD A 360!!!

I'm so going to be sitting at my computer, refreshing it all day. With multiple CCs on hand...

If you want a chance, you probably need one of those "One Step" purchasing accounts set up so that you don't need to waste time entering in your CC number.

According to Amazon, these sales are going to work a bit differently.  Check their "Buying Tips" page for more info:

12016  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Dupe, rumors of a rollback of up to 7 days on: July 20, 2005, 09:34:43 PM
From Blizz:

I understand that this is a very serious concern for you folks. Rest assured that we are actively investigating the reports of a duping exploit. There is currently no legitimate evidence of duping taking place at this time or in the recent past. This does not mean that we have concluded that no such exploit occurred, however; we are still actively pursuing all leads. Should we find conclusive evidence of such exploits taking place, we will take action as dictated in our policies. Naturally, we are very much aware of the potential impact such a bug would have on the game, and are doing everything in our power with the tools available to us to uncover the exploit, should it exist.

I must also apologize for not speaking with you about this before now. We were away, and this issue sprang up in our absence. You should have received communication about our stance and the actions we were taking earlier than this. I recommend that, should you find any evidence of this exploit, you eMail [email protected] to inform our team. As I'm sure you understand, the potential damage a duping exploit can bring to a game can be devastating. It is my hope that you will aid us with any information you may have. Thank you.

I have been playing non-stop since it came out, but I even have more interest now that I acquired this:

Yeah, still playing it and still loving it.  I just bought my epic mount the other day and got my first epic loot from MC.  Good times!
12021  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 Demo on: June 13, 2005, 09:22:22 PM
I have a 6600Gt and after tweaking the command line to display in 1280x1024, it looks great!

I have everything at medium, except Textures and Filtering at hight and shadows off.  Sound is also at high and it now runs smooth as butter.
12022  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 Demo on: June 13, 2005, 06:13:52 PM
You can remap controls, just if there is a conflict with another action, you must first clear that action before you map the new one.  I can't imagine this will stay around for long though.  Not a very user friendly system.

One thing I noticed though, is that even after I remapped crouch to C, I still had to press L-CTRL to crouch in a tank gunner spot.  Think that might be a bug though.
12023  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 Demo on: June 11, 2005, 10:15:43 PM
Big fan of 1942, Vietnam was no good, and this one so far is no good.

While there are some neat gameplay additions, the performance is SO bad, that I can't believe it.  1942 played like a dream when it came out.  This one is so sluggish and choppy that it's no fun.  Oh and it takes like 10 mins to load a game in the beginning...anyone else see that?

I have a decent system, too.  2.6G P4, 1 GB pc3200, 6600 GT AGP, and it just chops all over.  I don't know what they did, I can't even run it in anything higher than 1024x768.  My LCD native is 1280, so to top it all off, it doesn't look very nice either.

I can only hope that retail is MUCH different, or this is a pass.

EDIT: to add, I did install the drivers that came with it.  No diff, except for that blocky shadows issue.
12024  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battlefield 2 Demo on: June 11, 2005, 07:25:42 PM
I have a 6600 GT AGP, the readme only shows PCIe, does that mean my card is not supported?

12031  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KotOR 2 question...bug? on: June 07, 2005, 04:58:15 PM
Went back and tried wearing something else during those cutscenes.  The robes were still gone.  No biggie, so much good loot drops in this game that I already have something better.
12032  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KotOR 2 question...bug? on: June 06, 2005, 09:29:15 PM
Posted at Obsidian's forums about this and someone else there had experienced it.  

I will go ahead and try to have a different item on when I board the ship.

From the post at the Obsidian forums, it sounds like if you find Jedi Robes before you watch the cutscene of your exile, that it will be removed from the game.  Oh well, I played KotOR, so I know there's more good stuff coming.

12034  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KotOR 2 question...bug? on: June 06, 2005, 01:58:05 PM
No, no training at all, it's just gone.  I am going to reload an old save and wear something else when I board the Ebon Hawk, to see if it helps.
12035  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KotOR 2 question...bug? on: June 06, 2005, 06:12:07 AM
Mild spoilers for those who never played.

Hey all, I am about 11 hours in...I just left the polar facility on Talos where Atris and the handmaidens are.  I found a set of Jedi Robes in one of the rooms in the handmaidens quarters and put it on my main.  Shortly after, I boarded the Ebon Hawk to leave.  After some cut scenes I am back with my crew talking about things.  At that point, my new robes are gone and my char is in his undies.  They are not in my inventory either.  Is this a known issue?  Any one else come across this?
