    Dear GRIN:

    I couldn't have said it better myself, RAbbi. Sadly enough, this is the same exact reason why I refuse to buy anything else with Ubi's name stamped on it. I had to fight with myself over purchasing Splinter Cell: Double Agent. Thank God I chose not to. I've read where people are having several issues with this title as well. I do hope that GRiN can pull off a miracle with the next patch for GRAW. If not, this game will continue to go downhill, and that will be a big loss. This game has so much potential, and I truly love it. As for other people that are experiencing problems with this game as well as other titles tossed out by Ubi, think long and hard the next time you're debating over purchasing anything from them. If you want to force them to make better titles, refuse to buy their products until they give companies like GRiN, the necessary time to make quality games.

    New Vid Card

    I'm not sure if this will be moved or not, if so, my apologies for posting in the wrong area of these forums. I have a friend that is very interested in buying GRAW. The bad thing is, he needs another PCI Express vid card in order to run this game more efficiently. I'm not upto date on current vid cards so my question is to anyone that may own this card. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16814143071 How well does this card run GRAW? Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  4. That's exactly what happened to me last night, Peace. I was playing Co-Op with 2 friends and also in TeamSpeak. We were right in the middle of a firefight and I was unloading on a .50cal nest and he wouldn't die. My friend came across TS saying........."Dude, you were disconnected for altered game files?" I was like... "WHAT?" lol I haven't done anything to alter my files, so I didn't understand what was going on. I rejoined his server and started playing again. The same thing happened 3 more times within 15 minutes, until I finally grew tired of it and quit. These disonnects were all random. I could stay in the game for a few minutes, then booted out.

    I've played in several servers to date and I personally think BDA is one of the best. Not only do they run alot of different custom maps, they're also a great bunch of fellas to shoot it up with. They're always friendly and always crack me up while playing. lol Here's a new map pack release that was just uploaded to their site. It has fixes for some of the maps and should cover all of the maps that are being played on their server. It's called "Mother of All Hangovers." http://www.beerdrinkingassasins.com/module...p;orderby=dateD
  6. Was just playing online with some friends in Co-Op when this occurred. wdCrash in application version: grpcrc1.20 data\lib\units\types\vehicles\blackhawk.dsf(-1): cant find member: base in type <void> SCRIPT STACK data\lib\units\types\vehicles\blackhawk.dsf(0) data\lib\script_network\gametype\gametypecooperative.dsf(0) I just wanted to shoot this out to GRiN to see if they can shed some light on the situation. Thanks

    It's Time to Abandon ship

    I absolutely loved GR1 upon it's release. It turned a few of my friends, along with myself into FPS junkies. When I found out GRAW was to be released, I immediately went to GameStop to place it on reserve. I remember the first day it arrived (and so does GameStop because I called several times that day...lol) and I brought it home. I could barely wait to get through the door of my apartment to open this game. I thought to myself......."I haven't been this excited over a game since I was a kid at Christmas time." So without further delay, I opened the package, installed the game and off I went into a single player campaign. I loved the graphical scene where you get to halo out of a C130. I was thinking to myself, WOW, this is pretty neat. So several weeks on down the road, I started becoming more familiar with the game. There's a few patches that are released and to be honest, I never had one problem with them until v1.16. This is where I started becoming discontent. I wasn't happy with some of the things I was experiencing within the game and I was ready to bash GRiN up one side and down the other. Then, I started thinking to myself..."You know what, these guys had 1.5 years to make this game. They're not free of being guilty for some of the problems, but at least they're trying to correct these issues and chat with the community here about the ones we are experiencing." So try to lighten up a little Uber. Give this game some time and see what develops. Try playing another game to help take your mind away from this one if you're that dissatisfied. Before you know it, TDM will be released and all of us can start foaming at the mouth to play against each other. lol That's what I'm waiting for and I'm sure the majority of us are. Until then, I'm going to continue enjoying this game immensely. It's not GR1, but I'm actually glad it's not. It's time to move on, and I think GRiN did a pretty darn good job with what time they were given.

    Coop has been crippled

    It's funny that you mentioned the drone yo yo'ing, Strapt. I just witnessed the same thing tonight while playing Co-Op with my friend/teammate. I thought I was just suffering from sleep deprivation. lol

    I've experienced the same problems as well. The only way I could join servers was go in and remove my Local folder out of GRAW. I tried joining and it worked like a charm. When I updated, it automatically wrote over the existing Multicam skin by DiGiTALLY-TC which bummed me out. I was afraid to try reinstalling it due to file scanning when entering a server. DM was pretty neat at first but then became quite frustrating with everyone spawning so close to each other. Even 10 people seemed as if it were too much to handle. Hopefully GRIN will make some changes to that aspect of the game.

    How long do you play a game ?

    I'm currently playing GRAW as my main game but still play Black Hawk Down every now and then. Even tho it does have issues online, I still enjoy it. I started playing [GR] when it was first released but I didn't play it long due to having dialup as my only connection. I loved that game but wasn't fun by myself. I then picked up "Black Hawk Down", which was suggested by a teammate of mine. The graphics on that game aren't as good as GRAW but they're not bad. Online play was an absolute blast in TDM(not to mention that I FINALLY got cable! LOL) As for the PS3, I'll probably never buy one or an Xbox. I don't really like console games. The last console game I bought was a PS1 and after buying my first PC, I left poor sexy Laura Croft to the dogs on TR3. lol
