  1. Really??? So there's not gonna be any MOD support? Wow, no wonder theres only a couple populated servers out there.. Lookin like SWBF1 all over again.. I usually buy a game, see if its any good, and talk 5 other friends into getting it, but as much as i like this game i guess we're gonna just have to be satisfied with Battlefield2 at this point.. I mean, andrew with your link, I dont really see any information on it other than negative.. Why would they even mention MOD tools if they wont even allow modding? It sounds too nonsensical even for Lucas Arts!!
  2. Yeah, I had my dirty little hands on the box the other day and something told me to wait.. So i'll wait til its cheap and fixed and direct connect option is implemented... I haven't used gamespy since about 97' and i dont plan on using it again.. It's a pile of crap, always has been, always will be.. If these companies can't figure this out in the year 2006, they do not deserve my money... If they dont implement another way of connecting other than gamespy, i will never be buying the game..
  3. Yeah, but lets not forget Tribes2 launch..ROFL Just messin round... Even though Tribes2's launch and first couple months were abismal, it turned out to be one of my favorites of all time..
  4. if you do settle on the Nvidia, get the 6600GT version, it is LITERALLY TWICE the card the 6600 regular... Don't have specs right now but just went through this whole video card thing... The 6600GT is a great performer for the $$.. It is real close to an ATI X700 in performance..
  5. its been my experience that most RTS games lag a little even when playing LAN once you have so many units built and moving around.. Most likey even a 56K is going to lag like crazy and possibly drop the connection because of such a bad sync.. But thats just my guess, maybe EAW is different than all the rest of the RTS games... Hell, Battlefront 2 surprised me, maybe EAW will also...
  6. Why do people use gamespy.. Yes it is the most useless pile ever invented.. Makes steam look like perfection.. Anyways, I have this game running on 3 different computers.. The only problems i've had were solved in the tech forum... I get tired of hearing how a game is crap and no real explaination is made... This game runs way smoother than battlefield2, and uses way less resources... If you wanna give up go ahead, but you'll be missing out...
  7. The progname i'm talking about is grxp4exe.exe which turns out to be just what someone said it was before.. My gravis game controller drivers.. I've had to do this on a number of occasion throught time..
  8. I usually let the impatient ones beta test the client versions when it comes to patches before i switch.. Has served me well in the past....
  9. Nice to meet ya zerted... Win2K, 2.8GHz P4, 9800 Pro, onboard AC97 sound.. Teamspeak, im not at home right now but, I think i got it on Speex16, push to talk... If you figured it out at least i know it can be done thats half the battle... Thanks..
  10. I know teamspeak wont.. Will ventrillo or anything else?
  11. http://www.m3fe.com/760 Follow the directions.. I had to do this on 2 PC's running win2K.. Worked perfectly after that on both..
  12. Take it from someone who isnt a huge starwars fan... Im a bigtime battlefield2 COD fan, and i find myself hooked on Battlefront2 in a major way.. It runs smooth lnline and with everything turned and is extremely immersive.. I did a review on my COD community website and gave it a 91/2 outta 10... Superbly done.. A must buy! Waaaayyy more polished than SWBF1..
  13. I dont use XP but with win2k I had to end task on a prog something like grp4.exe the first time i ran the game on 2 outta three computers... When i get home ill give you exact prog name..
  14. CDkey generator.... I'm sending the info to lucas today or tommorow...
  15. Yeah Thanks Iceman, I saw that right after posting...LoL Good, I hope they realize they have a Gem Of A Game Here, Worthy Of Expansion Packs If They Can Get MP Working Well...
  16. I Just Hope They Don't Abandon This "starwars Battlefront".. It's the First Time Ever Buying A Lucas Arts Game For me, And It Would Certainly Be My Last If No Effort Takes Place... The Game Really Isn't Far Off From Being Perfect Right Outta The Box For The PC Version... But If This Game Was Only Meant To Have People Host It On Their PC's, This Would Be A Load Of Sh!t... I Have Yet To See A real, Or Official Server Online, And Just Because It Says Dedicated Doesn't Mean Its A Real Server... Why Isn't There a Lucas Arts Server Or Two, Just To Show Us The Game Can Be Played Online? I'm Not Complaingin really, It's Just this game Does Rock And I Hope The Dev's Realize the Potential Here For Addons Which Means More $$$$ and More Fun For Us Gamers... I Do Have To Agree With Decepticon Here, Locking the Game at 30FPS Is Rediculous, and Hopefully They Change That...
  17. So Where do we get official information from the Dev's? Here? Or Is There another site that has some updated official info, Like "Yeah Were Workin On It" Or Yadayada... How Do we know they're even working on a patch?
  18. I love this game, And It's almost worth it just for Single-player and Co-op, But, Are we Gonna See the multiplayer actually work lag free? Or Even Close to it? This one I have to sum up as Bad Netcode.. In the Past I've seen people yell,"Bad Netcode", and Usually it was something else, But The Thing that scares me is, I know Nothing About Lucas Arts Support, I've never bought a Lucas Arts Game Before, Do They HAve Good Support? Do you think Multiplayer will ever be what it's supposed to be?
  19. I've seen an ewok With Spears, and One Time Believe it or not, We Saw An Ewok With A Freakin Gun! I was playing Side Bye Side with a friend And He Said, Whooly ****, There's An Ewok With A Gun, and I said yeah Right, turned Around and Sure As ****, One Had A Gun!
  20. I am Not fanboy to any Game Unless it's worthy, Any Of you who Know Me From The BF1942, and HL2 Boards Know This!!!! But This Game Simply Rocks!!! The Multiplayer could use a patch or two, But Nothing Significant... Very immersive game, I'm stoked, Thank You!!!!
  21. Look, Noone Is Dogging GC, It's an excellent Mod, They had A rocky Road with some of the team breaking up, and still managed to make good progress, I love those guys, But Really, Getting All Offended over this is rediculous man.... People Have their preferences, and How In the World can you expect a Mod Team to Compete with Lucas Arts For Gods sake, The GC Team Should Be Proud Of What They Accomplished, Infact, I would Love to see them Mod For HL2, Which Would Prolly turn Out Better Than SWB If you ask me... I really Like SWB, It's cinematic, It's Immersive, A Little kookie In Some Ways But...
  22. I Love GC, But there's no way you can compare the immersiveness of GC to SWBF... I have the latest Galactic Conquest And I appreciate what those modders have done, But I doubt I will be playing it much more as I now have an immersive Star Wars Game.. Yes, The Space-craft in SWBF seriously feels ported from Console.. Why They did The Space-craft like this is beyond me.. However, The Infantry look and move way better than the refractor engine, Not Like Stiff legged people.... I can't believe this dead horse is still being beaten.... Now I have my game line-up til HL2 comes out... Desert Combat, Red Orchestra Mod For UT2004, and Starwars Battlefront, Pretty good line-up, Too Bad in the near future all these games will go by the wayside for me when HL2, and MODs come out, Gonna be Awesome Baby!!!
