  1. Are there any more coop maps on the way in future patches or any custom coop maps to download?? have thrashed out the 3 already..lol [Merged into existing thread]
  2. actually i like graw2 a lot, the ai could be a little better but meh i think it roxors teh soxors
  3. yes i use hamachi, for those of you that dont know its a little app that makes ur pc's think they are on a lan connection over the net, very simple to use, just install and join a channel who ever has adsl 2 would be fine to host, i only have 256up so count me out as host and me and a few m8s run a teamspeak server so you are welcome to jump on that for coop games, or does graw2 have voice chat?? i havnt seen it
  4. Im up for aussie coop action! my xfire is mrdemo or just pm me
  5. i am getting the same error! i think that its ram related but thats just a guess
  6. I was just wondering if there is a Stand alone dedicated server exe, a few friends and I have a server but its located in another state and dont want to upload the entire game! thnx
  7. I was wondering if there are any single player maps i can dl, i love this game but have finished it and want some more sp action! i saw the [GR] coop maps in dl section but can you play those by yourself and still control 3 bots? or do you need other real players to fill the 3 "bot" slots?
  8. id like to see civilians added for the city maps, maybe a few birds and other wild life for the bush maps
  9. i was just wondering if there are any GRAW custom COOP maps available, i only seem to see deathmatch maps??
  10. my friends and i have been trying to play coop together over the internet using hamchi as many ppl have suggested.. however when we use hamachi the game thinks it is LAN therefore using up massive amounts of our bandwidth, half the time 1 or 2 of us drop out and our Teamspeak starts cutting out and so on... perhaps in europe or the states having the game set to LAN isnt aproblem because of ur high internet speeds, but all the way down here in Australia the average net connection is 1mb down and 256KB upload, its this 256KB upload that is restricting us from being able to play at LAN settings when trying to host a coop server.. with 256kb upload we will be lucky to have 2 ppl playing together, when the 3rd and4th person joins its all over.. is there a way to set the bandwidth that the game will use, like you can set ur speed for internet games?? all help appreciated
  11. the FOV is fine if you are playing in widescreen mode the game was probly developed in 16:10 or 16:9 (like every other new game thats worth playing) you must be playing on a "square" 4:3 monitor if ur fov looks squashed up if you have a 4:3 LCD screen running a DVI connection it is possible to run all games in 16:10 or 16:9 if you have an ATI card just turn on "use centered timings" in the gfx card options and im unsure of the nvidia equivlent but i think its called scale image to panel or something?? anyway this will allow you to choose widesreen resolutions on ur 4:3 LCD, you will now be able to play in 1280x800 & 1280x768 (both 16:10) and 1280x720 (16:9) this will give you a thin black bar at the top and bottom of screen but it looks sooo much better i havnt played a game in 4:3 for almost 2 years now lol because all new games are developed in widescreen mode.. except for bf2 but eh who cares about bf2 lolz..
  12. i was also using the latest omega drivers with my x800pro and when i changed to the cat 6.7 i noticed that all my games seem to be running better, graw fps still sits in the 30 -40's but it feels a lot smoother and yes i have enabled geometry intsancing aswell
  13. im using clearhud 1.3 cheers ohh U doh
  14. iv been using the new custom huds and such as posted in these forums and think they are all great, however im wondering if anyone can give me a modified hud that ONLY changes the following- -no crosshairs -no MP chat window on top of screen -no video display in the top right hand corner of screen -a blood mod thats all! i know some of you guys could whip that up in 2 secs, as im a nub i cannot so it would be greatly appreciated i really do like all the huds released so far but they all seem to change OTHER things like making the bolt action sniper into a semi auto etc, id prefer to keep the weapons standard aswell as about 20 other changes to the game that i wasnt really after thanks very much
  15. i am currently using the clearhud 1.3 mod but would only like to add the mod that removes the video in the top right corner with out all the other stuff, if thats possible thanks!
  16. well i disagree, i know grin did a great job with the limited time they had and ubi made them release it before it was ready. but unfortunatly first impressions count, and what about all the ppl new to pc gaming, half of them wouldnt even know what a patch is so they would just think eww they graw game is a clunky peice of cra p. nothing would get changed if ppl just bend over and take it. just like any other product you would let them know if it wasnt upto par, and that is exactly whats happening in all these negative threads, ppl are letting ubi and grin know that thier product is not upto scratch, whats the problem with that??? if there was nothing wrong ppl wouldnt complain. graw has great potential but it should have been released fully finished like the xbox version. i think some of you are looking at graw with rose coloured galsses on and need to take a look at reality. sure all online games need patching to fine tune it but in graws case it needs a major overhaul. on top of that whats with the performance, does ubi have rocks in thier head???? they have excluded such a large part of the pc game market because about 90% of ppl cant run it with decent frame rates. Aswell as no AA omg are you seriouse??? i know the reasons why there is no AA but F.F.S they should have tried a different approach instead of insisting to use differed lighting, the only reason they used the differed lighting is because they really develpoed this game for xbox360, and when playing an xbox360 on a TV you dont see jaggies and you also sit further away so its not noticable. stop defending a company thats here to make money, and try listening to what ppl are saying, where theres smoke theres fire. if they gave the game away for free then sure you have no reason to complain. edit: to quote the first post of this thread "If you are not having fun playing the game, it only stand to reason that you would quit playing it and find another game more to your liking." well thats exactly what ppl are doing.
  17. yer im a mp player too, but i play competition dods & cod unfortunatly in australia there are no graw servers that i can find with a decent ping so pretty much i have the occasional game of coop with a m8 or just play sp when im bored. i would like to play graw online but there just isnt a community for it down here. anyway the spot where that screenie is taken is in the first level about a 100m walk from ur checkpoint 2
  18. anyone know how to remove the video display in the top right hand corner of screen with the loud americans yelling in ur ear every five minutes lol very annoying. there really is no need to have the video display there except the kiddies think it looks cool lol, i could handle just reading my objectives...
  19. yer it does look like less jaggies in ur pic thanks for posting, and the checkered water tower hrmm can you pls take a screenie from the same location, i was in the very first level at checkpoint 5, that is basicly exactly where i spawned. oh and my textures are all set on medium except i have characters set to high in the xml, and 4xaf. strange stuff :S i wonder what could make the jaggies more noticable?? oh and i have a question, apparently super sampling AA is the only form of AA that will work with deffered lighting (although from what i understand it would be a very large performance hit), so im wondering if it is possible to force SSAA from the vid card options?? I own an ATI card and im unsure of what the equivlent for super sampling is, adaptive and temporal aa are the only ATI aa options. could you pls try SSAA on ur vid card just to satisfy my curiosity, thanks
  20. the edge smoothening just looks like a blur filter straight from photoshop and ATI can do HDR and AA at the same time, Nvidia currently can not. the problem here is not the HDR its the differed lighting. and in oblivion yes it is possible to do HDR and AA at the same time with ATI hardware. HL2 HDR is not true HDR although they did a pretty good job, its looks great imo. they really needed to ad the option to allow real AA with no differed lighting. aand technicaly grin/ubi CAN call it Anti aliasing, because aliasing is just jagged edges and well this blur method is trying to smoothen it - hence anti. although i agree its a very poor effort.
  21. yep iv got the latest drivers and all that, post processing effects are set to low in those screenies btw could i pls see a screenie from ur 6800gs in 1024x768, i dont know how 1024x768 could look better than 1280 x 800 :S and i will complain about AA if i want to mr.TED SMITH, honestly when was the last time you played a competetive online game where there are lots of long distance shots without AA?? maybe back in the quake days??? but its 2006, AA is a must. instead of trying to stick up for a company that makes these games for profit , yes you heard me they make these games for profit, why dont you try to get the game devs to make the game how its meant to be instead of just bending over and taking it. there is more than just the lack of real AA that bothers me with this game, it has far too many flaws. It is so close to being the best game ever but i cant put my finger on why its not. this game is so obviously designed for console it makes me cringe. > soz but you have lost another graw player, lol the online count is down from 268 to 267 now. i feel i have been short changed with this game, its only good for console. im off to play dods cyas (you guys at UBI & GRIN should ring valve to get a few ideas about the finer points of online gaming)
  22. i run my game in 1280x800, which is the native res of my screen so it would look the same as 1280x1024 just not as high... i guess iv just been spoiled with games like DODS running in 1280x800 with 4xaa(real aa btw), it looks so nice and clean and crystal clear compared to graw that looks blurry and it still has jaggies, all theyve done with the blur is round the edges of the jaggies off , they havnt made say a diagonal line look like one straight line. first screenie looks nice and clear but as you can see is full of jaggies everywhere that become more obviouse when you move ur mouse. the second well the jaggies are slightly improved but they are still there, its nothing like having 4xaa in say hl2 or bf2.lol it looks like someone has smeared my screen with grease its so blurry i dunno i just think iv been spoiled by all the eye candy in other games out atm. or maybe i need to sit further away from my screen lol
  23. I havnt played graw much since i bought it due to the lack of Anti-Aliasing (I cant stand jaggies, they hurt my eyes :S) so when i started up graw today with the added anti aliasing feature it made my screen go all blurry plus most of the jaggies are still there W.T.F???? so is this the choice we have? a/ a screen full of jagged edges that shimmer everytime you move the mouse, man it looks horrible > or b/ a blurry screen with some sort of fake anti-aliasing that doesnt even really remove the jaggies i mean W.T.F is with that? it looks terrible either way we need true anti-aliasing support, i dont care about the diffused lighting or whatever , WE NEED REAL AA!!
  24. ow i really like this game and it does have potential, but as someone said there are 268 players online, thats telling you something dont you think?? it could of, should of and would of been the best game ever but unfourtunatly its not a good mp game, the single player was pretty good ill give it that, but ppl dont buy games these days for the single player side of it.. this game reminds me of another game that had great potential and a fantastic single player side to it, medal of honor pacific assault-but the mp was very rough and seemed unfinished and died very quickly, there might be at most 40 ppl playing it online world wide and to be honest thats where i see this game going.. i hope im wrong and that the modders can do something good with it i feel it was designed as a console game and not a competetive online pc game and thats where i think they went wrong..
