But that's the thing, the outpost was cleared, and literally 3 minutes after clearing they repopulate.  I'm sorry, no military is that efficient

If it's an actual outpost (smoke coming out of it), and it has actually been cleared (you get the cinematic showing it's cleared), then there's no way they respawn because good guys take over and you have missions and a safehouse inside there.

I think you're talking about something other than an outpost, or else you didn't actually clear it all the way.

It's not an outpost.  Others keep talking about outposts, but I never mentioned it was.  My original observation said I was doing a karma mission and 3 guys were camped out next to a turrent.  I killed them, and then used the turrent to do some redneck hunting.  Went to go claim my skins, but before doing so got attacked by an eagle.  When I got rid of that I turned around and the 3 guys I had killed had respawned 3 minutes after all of that.  It was within the map that was cleared  out (IE not in Fog of War, which means that area's outpost was already cleared)  Again I wasn't at an outpost, I was out in the forest/countryside exploring doing a karma mission.

I didn't see the guard respawning as an issue. In FC2 if you wiped out a roadblock you'd just assume that central command would roll out a new set of guards as soon as they found out there was a problem. It would be unrealistic if you just sat there indefinitely and more guards didn't show up, but I can understand that the flow of the game intended that you'd vacate the premises and once you were beyond a certain radius the guards would reappear.

In FC4 as mentioned above, once you take an outpost most of the bad guys in the area are gone, but otherwise you assume that that new patrols are being sent out to find out what happened to the old ones.



But that's the thing, the outpost was cleared, and literally 3 minutes after clearing they repopulate.  I'm sorry, no military is that efficient Tongue

Well there's definetely respawning of guards.  I was doing a Karma mission, had to kill a commander.  They were station near a stationary machine gun.  After clearing them out, I saw some wild animals and figured I'd go hunting redneck style.  But then a freaking eagle was near by.  I spent two rounds of trying to kill the eagle, and when I did, the two animal corpses I was going for were gone, and then I heard something behind me at a distance.  I turn around what do you know, the same guard camp I just cleared out is fully populated with more guards.

This is farcy 2 all over again. 

No, camps only repopulate if you haven't taken out the Stronghold in the area.  And you will get a radio call asking for help if one of them is going to be attacked again.  It's not really like Far Cry 2 at all in that respect.  I think you're reading too much into some random encounters or other enemies driving into the area.
No, it's exactly like far cry2 in how they do things.  In far cry2 you could be riding or walking along and come up to a crossroad or a point of interest with enemy guards at it.  You clear them out and you literally travel like a hundred feet, turn around the guards you just cleared popped right back up.

That's exactly what happened last night.  I was inside a just cleared outpost and started exploring the area.

So I haven't played enough to know for sure, but I think I ran into some respawning...  Can anyone confirm?  Farcry2 did it, and it was horrible.  I don't recall Farcry 3 doing it, and if they did it was much smarter about it.

Last night I was doing a side quest, and I ran into some wolves.  I killed them, and realized I went to far from my objective.  I reached my objective and the 2nd part of the objective was past the part where I originally went to far.  When I came back the same 3 wolves were back.

I absolutely hate this cheap tactic by lazy developers.  Nothing ruins immersion than that. Games like No One Lives Forever did this and it went down from what could have been a cool game to a shitty game because of it.

Anyone else see this type of respawning?

Got this yesterday for a great deal, and man it's pretty. 

Had a fun moment doing my first quest after the prologue.  I was sent to a farm to take care of some wolves who were killing the farm animals.  I was tasked to destroy the wolves den after taking out the wolves.  Inside the den was a gas canister and figured I'd blow it up with my fire arrow.  Well still learning the controls, I accidentally threw in bait.  I said to myself, crap there some perfectly good meat wasted, but didn't think anything else of it.  I figured I was ok because there wasn't any tigers/scary animals nearby.  Then I heard the tiger roar...  And I'm stuck in the cave trapped.  I managed to get by the tiger's leap, and accidentally shot the tiger with my fire arrow catching him and everything around me on fire.  Fire moved to my 4 wheeler and blew that up.  I ended using a normal arrow to blow up the gas canister which made no sense to me.

Fun chain of events

Bandwagon? Hate Seattle fans?

Don't paint with such a broad brush, guys. I've been on this bandwagon since 1984. I watched this game from home today and even I was doubting it after Russell's 4th pick. Even after winning the SB last year, 28 years or so of SOS (Same Old Seahawks) is hard to shake. The Seahawks have been an excellent team for 3 years now and every team has a bad game now and then. Even after being "exposed," I was ready to call it a season.

But wait, there's more!

Freakin' Russell Wilson and his ability to make nothing into something. Jermaine Kearse going 0/4 with 2 INTs directly off his hands, then catching the 35 yd walk-off TD. And Marshawn Lynch running for 157? I don't think we were "exposed." We played to win. GB played not to lose.

2 more weeks. Bring on Brady.

Just because you were a fan (and I believe you since you live in the area) doesn't mean most of your fanbase were fans prior to 2012.  Heck it's widely been known that prior to your recent success, you could see more visiting team jerseys than home team.  I'm sorry, but you have alot of people who are on the bandwagon.  That doesn't take anyway from you or other true fans.

I mean to be clear, Levi's Stadium is going to be just like that within the next five years.

I can see that, only because of the new stadium and tickets being so expensive.  I know when I had season tickets during the 2-14 year the games were still selling out and most of the people there were 49ers fans, unless it was the 49ers vs Raiders game.  Most of the 49ers fans chickened out and sold their tickets.  That parking lot and stadium was a sea of silver and black that Sunday. 

But as to your comment, I do agree, with the quality of the team soon to go down, and the cost of owning the seats, you are going to see alot of 3rd party ticket sells to visiting teams.  I don't think it's due to bandwagon, I think this case is due to more of economics.

GRRR That sucked. Damn they choked hard.

I had the game recorded, but didn't set to record past the alloted time. I realized that in the 3rd qtr. By then it was 3:15pm (pacific) the DVR stopped at 3:00pm. When the initial recording ended Packers were up and Russel just ran it in. Started the 2nd recording to see GB losing 22-19. Saw the rest.

What happened between that time? Man, this game was all packers. They had seattle exposed. How do you lose that.

Now I get to see more bandwagoners the next two weeks. Hate seattle fans. Caine, that statement doesn't apply to you, you've always been classy
That means a lot, Ken.  Thank you. 

I'm not sure what the hell they were doing the first 3/4 of the game, but that late surge of spirit and string of amazing plays really turned it around. 

I cannot believe that we are going back.

I just caught the 11 minute highlight reel at nfl.com.  I missed a lot in the last 2 minutes of play.  Pisses me off I didn't see it happen.  That was pretty intense.

After leaving a do-or-die game early, some Seattle Seahawks fans got exactly what they deserved.

The 2015 NFC Championship Game wasn't looking good for the home team in the waning minutes of the contest. That led some Seahawks fans to leave CenturyLink Field prematurely.

Heck no, mine uses HDMI. I guess I should say "as well" but all I'm using are the HDMI ports.

which one do you have?

I've had this Sony HT-CT100 Sound Bar for awhile now and it's been a good choice, IMHO. Discontinued now but plenty of newer models, from what I recall they all have a decent selection of connection options.

So your sony soundbar has led me to this...  I have $50 in gift cards that expire in a few days.  I've been toying with getting a 2nd controller for the ps4 but I might use that towards this...  http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=A7679079
What do you think?  I'm gonna go check it out at best buy and hope it's on display

No experience with the Sony but I just bought this http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-ATS-1030-Built-Subwoofers-Bluetooth/dp/B00NT6JSKK at Cosco for $189.  Seems to work well but have yet to try the Bluetooth stuff.  I liked the built in subwoofers instead of a separate wireless one that others had.  It has coax, analog and optical inputs but no Hdmi input.  I'm using it along with my XB1, PS4 and Wii U setup.  The consoles plug into the TV via HDMI and the TV goes into the sound bar via optical.

Ya that's a nice system.  I heard that a few weeks back and almost bought it only to see it's limited in connections.  If my TV had optical I would be fine.  But I also use the TV firestick that requires hdmi.  This soundsystem from sony seems to address all of my needs.  Going to bestbuy in hopes they have it on display.

But that yamaha sounded really nice

I just started playing the game last week... Is anyone else turned off by the nature of the explicit content? I know I've become more sensitive towards mature content in entertainment since getting married and living with my wife, but it seems way too vulgar. The strip clubs actually show bare breasts, the dialogue is pretty harsh (particularly when Trevor is talking), the violence is not as "cartoony" as it used to be with Trevor smashing people's heads in left and right.

Maybe I'm not remembering clearly, but I thought GTA IV was classier about its content.

The last 3 GTA games have always been this bad.  It always makes me uncomfortable.

So prior to this last August I was using itunes/iphone.  I have since upgrade my phone to a Samsung Galaxy S5.  I love it, but the only thing that I don't like is that it's hard to find something that works like itunes and how it manages the library.  What I usually do is I make a playlist and over time I take out any songs that shows a play count and add new songs to it.  It's how I refresh my music with new music that hasn't been heard in a while.  It worked great and perfectly. 

The Samsung Galaxy has a decent built in music player on the phone, but not so much with the PC client.  I found programs like doubletwist and isyncr that claims it tracks play counts, but I can never get it to work.  I also have issues with syncing my playlists using doubletwist.

Does anyone have any suggestions that would work with I do? Or suggestions on how to fix my issue using doubletwist or isynchr?

Wow, this is just remarkable. Jed York went on KNBR radio this morning and was absolutely grilled quite aggressively by Brian Murphy, the morning host and ex-sports reporter for the SF Chronicle. He didn't hold back at all in his questioning and asked the tough questions everyone has been wondering. The result is York coming across as a total hypocrite and contradicting himself repeatedly. I give York credit for not hiding and trying to explain things from his perspective but holy crap, he might have been better off just not even going on the air.

In any case, here is the transcript in all its crazy glory:
