  1. I came across this website recently. I didn't know U.S. police chatter is available to all, online! You Are Listening To Los Angeles I've found it both relaxing and intriguing. You can even choose a different city
  2. Did a search first, before posting this. If you've not seen the film John Wick, I'd recommend it for it's action, rather than it's story or acting. Here's a good example - House Shootout Anyway, there's a sequel out next year, and I suggest you check the boy's skills out. DS
  3. Ahhhh...this old topic? A feature I've wanted on all GR PC successors. So...once again...I'll say let's have this feature, and no, it's not 'unrealistic', Rocky. I've really enjoyed SP, and completed all levels with a full team, before ever venturing into MP. Long live GR. DS

    Display Driver nvlddmkm?

    Now and again I get this error message and there seems to be a large number of reasons for it. Any ideas? DS

    Display Driver nvlddmkm?

    After looking around, and from what I can tell, this issue goes back at least six years and is affecting all OS's since Vista. There's all sort of fixes out there and reasons given, both hardware and software/driver related. One common reason is TDR (Time, Detection and Recovery). MS Community Windows 10 Forums GeForce Community I've followed the MS Support official fix for it, and chose the 'fix it myself' approach. It seems to have helped, which suggests that TDR is a cause. I've followed it through with a full driver uninstall/sweep followed by a driver install less GeForce Experience. DS

    Thanks for reeling the swearing in a bit. Your previous video sounds like you had Doug Stanhope do the narration. DS
  7. Before you all get giddy about this game, this is what was said five years ago when Ubi promoted GR:FS at E3.; Soon after, you may recall GR.net admin working hard to revamp the website to give it a new and fresh look, inspired by, and along the lines of the GR:FS imagery at the time. ...and this at E3 four years ago, when Ms Shrager is asked why it's taking so long to develop GR:FS; The game was released two years after it's first E3 appearance, so, I'd say it's still early days for GR:W TBH Ubi spent money making a 23 minute short film called Ghost Recon Alpha. Perhaps that would have been better spent giving it to John Sonedecker instead. We might then have got the game most of us have wanted since 2002. Onwards and upwards. DS

    Display Driver nvlddmkm?

    First thing I did, and I always do a clean install. DS

    I only ever refer to the PC when it comes to GR, Cobblers. DS
  10. Thanks lads. I'll give the USB mouse and keyboard connections a swap over and see what happens. DS
  11. I've recently relocated my PC and gave it a dust and clean. Lately, I've been getting an error code on the EVGA motherboard; I've looked around a bit, and there doesn't seem to be any one solution. A few say check all connections. Anyone else come across this? It runs fine by the way. DS

  14. I might be going down the wrong road here, but is this the kind of thing you mean? DS

    I would normally agree with with anyone making that statement, but we are talking about Ubi and GR post 2002 here. I wouldn't say misguided, but as I've said it's still early days for GR:W. Going off the trailer, and in contrast to the giddy and hopeful out there, I'd say Ubi aren't developing a better GR, nor are they developing a GR with a wig on. Instead, it looks like another move towards a multi-platform AA/AAA title that they hope will make them money, and I don't doubt many of us reluctantly accept that after more than a decade. If it's at least a 'good' game that happens to have GR in the name, then I'm ok with that. Whatever Ubi release though, I bet we won't be talking about it in ten years time, and to be fair, I'd say that applies to most games these days, no matter what platform they're on. Ghost Recon was a bench mark title for a niche audience. It was a game changer...literally, and it should have set the bar higher for games that have followed since. But it hasn't. DS

    Exactly, and I also think beard management and having the choice of protective eyewear, ie. Oakley or Revision, is essential. DS

    Just Remember...

    Ha, just takin' the Mick'. Remember, you know we've been here before, and unlike Ms Shrager's above quote about GR:FS, the only game a lot of GR fans have talked about and have continued to talk about for more than a decade, is GR and its two expansion packs, and nothing else. As I said, let's not get giddy about GR:W just yet, and instead wait to see what Ubi eventually releases. Like every other trailer since 2002, this trailer still looks as though the game won't be a better GR with better graphics. But if it's a game worth playing, then that's fine by me. DS

    Brilliant! So he 'gets' and 'feels' that the original GR was a tactical and stealthy FPS, set in the near future, that had years of game in it, where the SP mode inspired the gamer to complete it and play it again and again until all of the Ghosts survived, before venturing into the MP arena, making friends along the way and where they, even now, still talk about THAT gane? Is that what he 'gets' and 'feels'? If so, where was he when GR2 was being developed? DS
  20. This aired in the U.K. at the beginning of this year; ITV Report the Kill List - YouTube DS

    Just Remember...

    Colin was very commited at the time and very passionate about GRAW and GRIN. I remember GRIN getting a holiday in Mexico paid for by Ubisoft when the game was completed. You may also remember there was a live online Q&A with dev's and Ubi during GRAW's development [not that anything was achieved], and uniquely for GR.net, there was some fan/developer interaction and even a developer presence on GR.net. They clearly saw the importance of GR fans, but obviously still had to follow Ubi's direction. I doubt we'll have such privilege again DS

    GR.net at E3!

    Well done, lad. I'm so pleased you've not only been invited out to Paris by Ubisoft, but that you've finally got to E3. About ****ing time. Proud of you. DS

    GR.net at E3!

    Can you see yourself, Rocky? E3 2015 - Ubisoft Live Conference - June 15th - 2:30 p.m PDT DS
  24. Going off the reveal trailer? No and no. It's too early to tell as the game's not been released, but as we all know, the time between a GR game's announcment and its release date is often the most exciting for us, as it always gives our imaginations a good workout. DS
