12521  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Back to nVidia I go... (6600 GT AGP) **Now with impressions* on: December 05, 2004, 07:40:01 PM
I was a long time nVidia user, who jumped to ATI with the 9600 PRO due to ATI just kicking butt at the time.  I've been waiting for the 6600 GT to be released in an AGP form and that's finally happened.  So I just bought the XFX one online.  Here's what I got:  http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=321018

No problems really with ATI, just wanted this super-fast card.  Can't wait to try it out!

Hey all, what do you use to view screenshots taken in game? I've found that Quicktime works, but it's not very user-friendly. Any other programs work? Thanks!

Wait, I just leave steam on, but with WoW out I don't even know what HL2 is any more.  Does that mean HL2DM has been downloaded onto my computer in the background, or do I have to manually click download it?  Thanks!!


You will need to exit and restart Steam.  Then Steam will update itself and verify your CS:Source files.  After that, you can click on Play Games and then click on HL2:DM at the bottom (it should be in light green).  Click Next to start download it.  It should only take a few minutes to complete.


Thanks!

NEVER! I have to play on the most populated server, and if I can't I'm going to go whine and complain and call people homosexuals on the WoW forums!


Oh man those forums are the worst.  Thank goodness the Blizz employee posts are highlighted, so I can just scroll down to them.

Also, unless I am crazy, you can talk to a class trainer and have them wipe your talent point placement and redistribute your talent points.  This way you are not stuck if you mess up, or you want to move your character to another direction.  I think that's a cool feature.  Like the buy back button with merchants.


The first time you do this it cost you 1 gold (which is a lot for a low-mid level character). It cost you 5 gold the second time and the price goes up 5 gold each additional time.  

When talents were first introduced you could wipe them for free, but they changed that toward the end of beta.


Oh, well shoot, I didn't know that.  I guess you need to put some thought into it then.

12537  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW opposing faction lands? on: November 30, 2004, 05:25:20 PM
Hey all, while it's still awhile away for me, I am wondering if your travels ever lead you to the opposing faction lands.  As an Undead player, I really like what's happened to Lorderon (sp?), but Durotar/Barrens is bland, bland, bland (so the exception of Stonetalon Mountains so far!!!!)  Will I ever get to visit the Alliance lands for quests?  Note that I am NOT on a PvP server.  Thanks!
12538  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / World of Warcraft Impressions on: November 30, 2004, 04:52:35 PM
As I get better in Alchemy, I think I'll start making a nice profit selling some good potions. slywink

Ok, so I gotta say that I have not been this hooked on a game since Warcraft 3.  I got the game on Friday morning and I literally played for three days straight.  I haven't done that in years.

I have a level 20 Undead Rogue and I'm just loving it.  Rogue is the class for me.  Melee with good damage.  And with Herbalism and Alchemy, I can make potion buffs that are cool too.  What an amazing game.  I just want to play all the time!!!  biggrin
12539  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / World of Warcraft Impressions on: November 29, 2004, 05:47:03 PM
Most fun I've ever had in a game, with no let up in sight.  Just amazing.  I didn't even enjoy BETA, this is just insane.  More details to follow.

Well this is just silly.  It seems that every time I play CS and then play HL, it validates my game files.  Getting this game to start is a chore.  I hope the trend dies here.

Doesn't do that to me.


Well damn, I wish it didn't do that to me.

I never had this problem until they released a fix for it.

Hey gang, I'm starting up HL2 to get some gaming in and I've had to wait 10 minutes now for it to validate my game files.  I've already been playing for a week now.  What's the scoop?  Has this happened to anyone else?
12546  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Server Choice Question on: November 26, 2004, 04:56:18 AM
Another question for you guys.  I live on the West Coast, so I would normally play on a Pacific Time Zone server.  I see that all of the guilds talking here are on Central time servers.  If I were to create a character there, would I have terrible lag?
12547  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / haha @ WOW on: November 26, 2004, 04:48:35 AM
Well congrats t.o.  Glad to see that all your hard work is paying off.
12548  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need digital camera advice plz before Friday! on: November 25, 2004, 08:48:23 PM
I haven't, but I know Sony makes a really tiny 5MP camera that's supposed to be good.

On a side note, it seems that the SRP is $39.99, so that's a plus.
12550  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Server Choice Question on: November 25, 2004, 08:07:16 PM
Oh, so you can still PvP on non-PvP servers?  That sounds like what I'd want to do.
12551  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Question about Gateway computer in Best Buy Black Friday ad on: November 25, 2004, 07:33:14 PM
Hey all, I see that BB has a Gateway computer in their Black Friday ad for $979.97.   The specs are really good:  P4 3 Ghz, 1GB DDR RAM and a 160 GB HD.  It even comes with a printer and 17" LCD.  

Specs-wise, I know that's a good comp.  My question is, is Gateway a reputable company?  Is their stuff any good?  I've been building my own computer for years now, so I don't go and buy the name brands.  Can anyone comment on how well built their computers are?

Edit: This is for a Xmas gift for a non-gamer, so it doesn't need to be a gaming rig.
12552  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / WoW Server Choice Question on: November 25, 2004, 07:17:19 PM
Hey all, I think I'll probably pick this up at Compusa tomorrow for $40, although I may not install it just yet.  I have a question about server choice for you.

If I select a server that is PvP, do I have to engage in PvP all the time?  I mean, can someone just run up and kill me, or do I have to actively enable it?  I know that at first I won't want to play like that, but eventually I may want to go on a raid against some human players.  So, does anyone know how that will work?

Also, can you create a Horde and Alliance character on the same server?

Thanks!

Just wanted to note that the A75 also can take video and it has a built in mic to capture audio.
12554  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [XBOX]Chronicles of Riddick Question on: November 25, 2004, 09:00:46 AM
Having fun with this one, but I have a gripe and maybe I'm being too picky.  Didn't Riddick always say that he got his "eye-shine" in a surgical operation in a slam for 20 menthols?  What's up with the "midiclorian" presto you've got eye-shine story?
12555  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prince of Persia: Warrior Within Reviewed on: November 25, 2004, 08:04:49 AM
Well after reading those comments, I think I can hold off on this one until I play some other stuff.  It looks like I'll still enjoy it, but I think I'll get Metroid first.
12556  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Getting sick while playing HL2 on: November 25, 2004, 06:11:09 AM
I've had no probs with it.  Although, no games have ever made me feel that way.  I have a couple of friends though who can't watch me play games because they get nauseas.

12558  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Recommendations for DVD viewing software? on: November 25, 2004, 06:01:30 AM
Hey all, I just ordered a CD-RW/DVD ROM combo drive and I'm wondering what software I'll need to be able to watch DVDs.  I think the drive comes with something (It's OEM, so who knows), but I wonder if there's anything else out there that's rock-solid?  Any recommendations?

Edit:  Does WMP 10 do all of this anyway?

I have the A75 and I can tell you this:  It is an easy to use camera that takes fantastic pictures.
