  1. If you think that's swearing you need to get out more or get a life. Feeling incensed about something provokes strong comment (although not to the levels seen elsewhere) .... why not grow some balls? Where do I hand in my membership?
  2. #########!!! Nothing else worth saying. Dont Swear
  3. What's the MR-C meant to be, assualt rifle??
  4. I think this is great news, even without PC screenies or vids it's actually quite an informative little piece. It has got me thinking about PC specs tho' Has anyone from UBI or GRIN come out with minimum / ideal specs for GRAW. While my current rig runs GR like a dream and gives me good performance with the likes of HL2 and Farcry the last thing I want is to be too slow for GRAW.
  5. Yeah. Only thing is, Ubi has forgotten that without us, there wouldn't be a thriving GR franchise. You don't see console mods out the ying-yang, and the console version still selling after 5 years. ← You're right but the issue is irrelevant. UBI are just pimping the most cash rich market out there and that's consoles. This is market economics, plain and simple. I for one do not believe the crap about not living upto expectations. A bad port or not they would still have released a GR2 for PC if it existed. Because lets face it we would all be out there buying it regardless of quality as we've been waiting so long. Always knew there was a reason I didn't like the french
  6. Not surprised. After all this time I started to think that was the only answer we were going to get. Winter 2005.... based on the average slippage for a game I would genuinly expect that to be sometime spring of 2006, as has already been suggested. Will I wait..... maybe but then again this is crap customer service considering we're supposidly a "loyal customer base" I almost felt like ranting on the UBI forums but a) it would get deleted b) they wouldn't give a ######! At the end of the day there are not enough of us to have an effect on UBI, the console millions have won the day. We get to make do with whatever table scraps they care to throw our way.... TOTAL BOLLOX! Oh, and Chems increase the meds m8, you're starting to hallucinate.
  7. You're right however, my remark was more to do with how they haven't replied with how i get my money back, not where the game is. Money-grubbing SOB's.

    Our Own Game

    I believe I've just discovered the reason to go out and buy Farcry. I played the demo when it launched and yes, it was pretty good. But I've bought so many games since GR with hopes of good SP and a new MP experience that have fallen by the way as they aren't GR. However, for a number of reasons I have stopped playing GR MP recently and am trying to get through my SP back catalogue, do you know, I have just completed Island Thunder SP and I got that on the day of release! Having read what you're doing with OE if it's half as good as you are indicating I may just dust off those MP urges and give it a go. Good job guys, keep it up.
  9. I pre-ordered my copy from MX2 they were also showing the 25th as the release date. If you check the link above it now shows as "-3 days to go" Sent them an e-mail on the 23rd asking if they had an update as the lack of info is frustrating. Alternatively I asked about how I get my money back if I want to cancel. Oddly they haven't replied and they state a max 48hrs for response.
  10. BPR Server is always online 195:20:109:74 and we attract the right kind of players. This weekend is a bit of a memorial thing for a friend of mine ( see Lynxz thread) so we're expected a full server. Last night it was running in excess of 30 players for most of the night , finally clearing out around 2am GMT. Pop along if you get the urge, the games are always fun and we're a friendly bunch.
  11. The server is up 24/7 and aside from matches people are always welcome. I'll be there on Friday and Sunday, it's my wifes birthday this weekend so we're going out on the Saturday. But don't let that stop you from going along and playing a few games with the guys. This is a way for me to remember the good times with my friend and I figured it will be nice to share that around. The rest of BPR are a great bunch, so drop by and have some fun, regardless of why and when.
  12. Should really be from around 8pm UK time onwards. Hopefully it will be a full server and we'll play until we get bored!
  13. Not many of you will know my friend but Mark, Lynxz was as close to me as anyone could get. Almost one year ago he was taken from this life in a freak accident. The same almost took the life of his son Liam but he managed to survive. Probably because Lynxz was watching over him..... I have spent this last year struggling to understand what happened. It is easy for me to use this as an excuse as none of you really know me. But aside from my wife & daughters, this man was a pillar in my life. A 'given' against which I could plan my day and spend my free time. My loss pails into insignificance compared to that of his family but it does not affect the way I feel. Anything I do in memory of Mark is easy to achieve and simple in the grand scheme but I would like to think it serves us all well. This weekend coming, 18th, 19th, 20th of March I hope you will join me and celebrate the memory of my friend and our fellow gamer Lynxz. You will find me online at BPR's server where I will be remembering my friend and I hope that you will do also...
  14. Amazon in the UK has release listed as March 1st. That's bad enough but May....... Jesus are they deliberately trying to drive us up the wall!?
  15. I know that it is possible for someone to appear to enter the server setup but as far as I know they cannot make any change (at least whilst it is pw protected). I know this as a couple of the guys in my clan do this on friendly servers, just for giggles. Always gets odd comments from the hosting team. The only time I've known of someone actually getting beyond the pw and changing settings, it turned out to be a ex-clanm8, looking to ###### us off. It worked and taught us to change the pw when somebody left.
  16. Rocky, thx for the hosting space, very much appreciated. Watchman
  17. Thanks for the comments guys. Mark's son has a link to this thread and I'm sure will appreciate the messages left here. On the sig front I managed to get this from the guys at CooldowN I honestly don't think that it could have turned out better, the Sig-maker, Hydra did a fantastic job. Now I just have to sort out some web space to host it on a permanent basis.
  18. I learnt today that my friend Mark has passed away. I do not know if many here will remember him, as like me he was an incidental poster. But in the years since GR was launched in the UK Mark and I became good friends and quite often managed to keep each other alive in battle! Mark leaves a family who will miss him dearly, of that I have no doubt and many friends who like me will mourn his passing. But I know he has not left me completely and that he will be the one 'cheat' that cannot be found, for he will watch over me from now on and we will cut a swath before us!! As a mark of respect I want to have a sig created in his honour, but this is beyond my ability. Can anyone point me in the direction of a quality sig-maker, prepared to assist me in this? God bless ...
  19. As has already been said, learn the maps, learn the weapons, learn the characters. When you've done that you'll know the last thing a sniper is, is a coward. Takes a lot of balls to go into an MP game sniping, especially if you are unlucky enough to end up outnumbered. You have no backup and you're not armed for fending off multiple attacks. Tailor your selections to the map and you'll be fine, sounds obvious but the number of times I've played MP and seen people snipe on creekbed or river, even training!! These maps are way too small for that. There's nothing more satisfying than being able to help out a team mate who's under fire and nowhere to go.
  20. Been playing GR since it's original UK release (2+ yrs?) and I still put in 3 -4 sessions a week. RVS is pretty good I just wish it didn't still have the server problems. Of the new games H&D2 has to be the best WW2 fps for me. The AI are extreme and the visuals are top notch. I too am also waiting for Soldner, based purely on what I've read so far this game is defo the one for me.
  21. Been a while since I played it online, mainly because there are so few servers running it. But when I was playing it MP all maps worked fine.
  22. GR's #1 for me. DFLW, OpFlash, RTCW are all damn good games but they don't have the tension that GR does. If you can believe it I have just started to play Halflife, what a cool game I can imagine that was the absolute dogs in it's day. Looking forward to Soldner, that could be the one to pip GR for me.
  23. MS Optical Trackball & a Belkin Speedpad. Used trackballs ever since I discovered Doom 12-13yrs ago. Was a logitech Wingman back in those days. I've tried different mice but never felt comfortable with them. The speedpad is an absolute godsend. I know it's a piece of kit that has widely differing views but for me it's perfect for fps.
  24. Haven't played sp for a while, the last time was frostbite but yes, I always plot waypoints for the other teams. Dependent on the action or awkwardeness of the terrain i may plot their path upto a critcal point (as I see it) then jump into that team. For instance if I know there's heavy enemy presence. I guess that comes from still not being 100% convinced in the friendly AI.
