1166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Top Spin 2 (x360) on: March 31, 2006, 10:56:50 PM
After 4 hours of play last night there is no question this is the best tennis game I've played so far. And i've played them all virtua tennis smash court tennis etc. Haven't seen a single framerate problem like what was written in the teamxbox review, game is very smooth. Graphics and presentation are great . Played in a minor tournament in career mode,  on grass in a park and it looks great with people jogging in the
background and some stopping by to watch.

I did play a few exhibition matches as well as a few online games. First off, the online games felt no different than offline so they were smooth as possible. Also, they were truly fun, challenging, and even battles. So far, my biggest complaint with the last Top Spin seems to be gone, which was the abuse of certain shot types (cheesy drop shot) and character styles
6'10 volley players that would combo to be impossible to play against. You can actually win aginst volley players now say hello to the topspin lob.

Career mode is going to be a lot of fun with all of the major tournaments in this version. I am playing it on the default of normal and getting some really long rallies aginst the ai


So far this game seems much more balanced.I hope it continues to be balanced, but I'm afraid someone will find a 'money shot' soon enough and then all multiplayer games will boil down to who can pull off that type of shot first.


There is one annoying thing  about this game that I thought should have been fixed before they released it when your playing and they show your stats like unforced errors to winners playing in 720p its cut off I can't read it but when I changed my rez to 1080i I could read it  how hard would that have been to fix?

I'd be glad to play online with anyone here. I'd rather not do ranked games with my character until I get him built up some more, but playing with some pros (even the chicks ) would be great fun.

I always game with all the lights off and the shades pulled, so I've been loving my eclipse.

I would imagine the red lighting would make the letters and keys even more visible than they are in blue, so I'd say go for it.

I love mine.


hey on your eclipse keyboard can you prgram the arrow buttons up and down for commands?

1185  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / ram on: November 08, 2005, 11:39:55 PM
Quote from: "Hazer"
How do you buy "non-dual channel" ram?

Dual Channel is a Motherboard function. I can take old DDR2100 RAM made before Dual Channel was available and run it in Dual Channel as long as the motherboard supports it...

Are you saying that you have 2 unmatched 512Mb sticks? In theory it's possible to get non-matched sticks to DC as long as they're the same size, but there's a large risk of instability and most boards won't even try it.

If you're looking to buy an additional 1gb of RAM, try to match the sticks you already have. General rule of thumb for any RAM upgrades, Dual Channel setup or not.


yea I was thinking of getting another gig of ram but the ram I have now I can't seem to get anymore I tried a gig of corsair but my system wouldnt even recognize it.

Yes, that is right. I just got back from Toys-R-Us. I happened to wander in last night (first time in years) and asked how many they expected to get. I have been trying to decide where I wanted to try and get one on release day. The super helpful employee (no, really he was) talked to his manager and found out that they were starting pre-orders today, but only 8 of them. So I went in and got number 2.

Only bad part of this is the bundles kind of suck. The one I got comes with the premium system, a wired controller and 3 games (Madden, NBA Live and Kameo).

The other bundle was the same but also came with PGR3 and Tony Hawk.


Hey happydog you might be in luck if you want to ger rid of nba live I might take it off your hands I was thinking of picking it up no shipping I live in surprise but work in phoenix so I would pay you cash no waiting for payment.

Yes, it's time... it's beyond time!  I love all the consoles, really - and when you have all the systems, then it really is all about the games!  But my XBox fan-ism is being strained waiting to find out what I'll be playing on Nov. 22!

I say enough!  Villagers, unite!  Burn something down!

I thought that would help, but it didn't.   :shock:


Yes release the list already and to think my stupid gamcrazy called me last friday to remind me to pre-order any games I want  for launch yea but what games will be launch titles?

Quote from: "Fellow"
No it will not. Only TVs that cost more than $10,000 are good gaming TVs.

Seriously though, that's the latest and greatest from Sony's mid-priced tellies (step below Qualia), and just about everyone who bought one has loved it. Some've said it equals, or is even greater than the Panny's plasma TVs in picture quality. Also, the shadow details are wonderful, rivaling that of CRT tubes.

So yeah, you should be good to go.

Unless, of course, you just wanted to brag. In which case I'm going to have to kill you.


Hey it's not what you guys think my dad passed away last year and left my mom with a considerable amount of money and my mom is just trying to share the wealth with me and my sister and our families and her grandchildren because she had cancer about 8 years ago and her health is not that good and my father passed away last year of a sudden heart attack.

aight.  This is what i drove, color and all, exactly, IRL and in game.  Any ideas for what'd make a really cool paintjob?  I've been looking but i'm stumped, i need ideas.



Right now i have it tuned out for C class championship as best as I can.  Been using Road Atlanta 2 to tune it and i've got it down to 1:11:334 on my best lap so far (in a c cup race, not test track) which was very close to "perfect for me" as far as driving goes.  Also set a 1:15:004 on Road Atlanta 2 on the test track for a first lap.  This game's really challenging.  I'm sure i'll be able to improve that time quite a bit more with more time spent tuning and practicing but its still pretty fast for the mazda 3 and extremely challenging to get that far.

I don't know enough to know whether you can actually possibly set the best time with any car or only certain ones.  It seems like almost everyone is driving the same cars in these events and it makes me wonder...thats for sure.  I would have thought i could get a Mazda 3 to go around the track as fast as anything else in C class though.  Maybe i'm just deluding myself and should stick to D with it after all...

My biggest tuning question is still where the differential should be set.

My current time falls worlds short of first place on the Road Atlanta 2 C championship race.  If i multiplied my best lap by 5 and added 6 seconds for the first lap i'd have a 6:00 race.  The current first place is some guy named Alba with 5.35.441.  Seems like an insurmountable gap at this point.

Anyone want help me out on my challenge to set first place with a mazda 3 on road atlanta 2 C cup?

My xboxlive tag is "Fuzzball x".  I need to get on you guys friends lists for some online racing fun.

I'm having a righteous blast with this game so far.

And the lord says "Thou shalt create leader boards for each car for each class, Microsoft"


Hey Fuzzballx nice to see another Mazda owner on here I drive a metallic gray Mazda6 with the v6 IRL.
