12521  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / BFME moving between units on: December 28, 2004, 05:12:20 PM
Hey all, I have a gripe with the BFME controls.  I'm used to Warcraft 3, where you can TAB through units in your group.  When I try to do this with BFME, the pause menu comes up.  Is there any way to change this?  How do you all cycle between battalions?

Looks good, I'm excited for the first batch of games using that engine.  This will be a first day buy for me.

Also you might try disabling AA/AF if those are enabled, to see if that fixes it.


May I add that with my setup, I don't use AA or AF.  I have them both set to application controlled.

I am totally disappointed in the game's performance.  I was hoping it would run better than this on my machine.

I have
P4 2.6
1g pc3200
6600gt 128meg Nnidia

And in the first mission (Moria) of the good campaign the slowdown is so bad it takes my characters a good 20 seconds just to cross my 17 inch screen!  They are moving in ultra ultra slow mo.  Not all the time, and not even when there happens to be anything happening.  Pitiful.  And I only have the settings at 10x7 Medium detail.

I am not sure I want to play it at all if it won't run any better than that.  At this speed it will take me hours and hours just to finish a single mission.  If noone else is seeing this, then I will assume it is my machine not being up to snuff and trade this off until my next rig a year from now.  Too bad cuz it was sure reeking of quality in every other department.


Something's wrong then, because I have the exact same specs and I can run on 10x7 with ultra-high settings and I have no slowdown.
12525  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Home Networking Question on: December 27, 2004, 04:26:32 AM
Hey all, got a question for you.  I have a D-link router and 4 computers in my network.  Computer 1 is connected directly to the wireless router, no problems.  Computer 2 is connected wirelessly to the network and was able to obtain the DHCP lease just fine.  No extra configuration and no problems.   Computers 3 and 4 are connected wirelessly and were able to detect the wireless network without issue, almost immediately.  However, they are not obtaining their DHCP lease (IP, Gateway, DNS information).  I have had to configure computer 3 and 4 with that information for them to be able to connect to the Internet.  

Any ideas why that is?  They are all the same brand of NIC (D-Link).  I know they all work, because they connect after I configure, I just don't know why they won't obtain their configuration settings.  Thanks in advance.

Great, fun game.  Too bad no one played online.  It was hard finding a server after the first month.

So I just got this on Netflix and watched it thinking it would be really cheesy, but I really liked it.  It was a great action flick!  Wow, that was a fun movie (if you can get over the apocolypse and all).  Definitely recommend for some action fans.

80% of the players are undead?  really?  i would have thought that most folks would be night elves or humans.  but come to think of it, playing as horde, i do see a bunch of undead around orgrimmar.


I don't think that's right.  I need to see some statistics.  Hell on my server alone, Alliance outnumbers Horde 3 to 1.  My money in on NE.  I bet most people are NE.

Quote from: "RPGHero"
You know, one thing that I found odd.  They state that if you have excellent relations with another race, that you can buy their mount instead.  Was this always in the game and just announced, because a couple days I could have swore that I saw a dwarf ride by on a warhorse.  I thought I must have been mistaken...but now I'm not so sure.


Must have been a Paladin, which has it's own class specific mount (warhorse).

Got together "the gang" for a Lord of the Rings marathon on Sunday.  Extended Editions, no less.  691 minutes of LotR goodness on a big-ass Samsung HDTV with progressive-scan DVD player.  Snack breaks between each disc and meal breaks between each film.  We began our journey at 0945 and ended at 2315.  First time any of us had watched RotK:EE.  Some great stuff in there.


While I like the sound of that, I wonder if I'd be able to sit through it all!!!!!  Can't wait to unwrap RotK and watch it though!

Yes, I think they're planning on adding it at some point. That's why in the cities there are what look like instance portals, but they don't lead anywhere.


I saw one of those in Ogrimmar and wondered what it was.  There was a gate on it.
12542  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumor Mill - Diablo 3 on: December 17, 2004, 11:14:16 PM
Yeah one of the end scenes of WC3 was a space battle with marines, zerglings, and space orcs (lol).

I'd love to see SC2, it's going to be done, just a matter of time.  I am also suprised that it hasn't been annouced yet.  They had two WC titles going at the same time (TFT and WoW), why not to SC titles.  Hell, one is not even being developed in-house.

WoW has to have it's own team in addition to the team that did WC3.  As far as I know, Blizz North hasn't annouced anything that they're working on.  That's the group that does Diablo, IIRC.

COOL!

I like the helm/cloak display option.  My helm looks stupid, but I need to wear it for the abilities.  I'd like to turn that off and still get the benefits.

EDIT: I'm also glad that they're keeping the hero class idea.  I'd like to see how that works.

While there are a lot of Elite quests as you move up, there are plenty of solo quests to keep me going.  I'm at level 32 now and I solo 90% of the time.  I'm playing Horde though, so maybe it's different.

Since everyone did multiple, I'll add to my original post the other games that I really liked this year:

Warhammer 40K DOW - lot's of fun, love the hectic battles.  Wish the campaign was longer.

Tribes - Vengeance - I had such a blast playing this one, but the community must not have.  It was damn impossible to find people on a server.  I'd stayed away from Tribes 2 and dropped out of the scene for awhile, but this one was as much fun as T1 was for me.

The ones that need to be commented on:

Doom 3 - I really liked the atmosphere on this one.  The graphics are damn near amazing.  The pop out of the closet thing turned me off.  I like how dark it was though, I thought it was fitting.

HL2 - Very nice looking game, sure the physics are neat, but it didn't do it for me like HL1 did.

Saw this in the Console Forums and wanted to have a PC only topic.  Hope there's not one already.  Any way, without further adieu...

World of Warcraft for me.  I'm just loving this game on so many levels.  Maybe it helps that I was a WC3 junkie, but man have I been hooked on this game.  I look forward to playing every day.

Defias Rogues drop them occasionally. Rogue only loot, too.


Do they have these for Horde chars too?  I'd like to have one.  I liked seeing my characters hair.  Now it's all covered in my helmet.
