  1. Greetings! I read about the Colt .45 1911 model no longer being produced except for local and Fed governments in Guns and Ammo. However, I did see a WWI replica model for sale on the Colt website that certainly would no longer be of interest to gov't agencies. There seems to be a contradiction, but I think the operative phrase phantom used was "pre-existing stock", in other words--- until that supply is sold out.
  2. Greetings! Well after trying to replicate Sarts experience unsucessfully, I finally had it happen to me accidentally in the 8 Days Refinery mission. This was an hour ago on the GR.net server so if you are recording games it's there. I was trying to rescue the hostages inside the two Refinery bldgs, when I had to use my last round on a Skinny. His buddy advanced on me until we met. Some say they can't see you if you lie still but this is not true as I found out. I decided that since they don't see me as a threat , to see if I would be allowed to walk away from them. I did--in fact I was able to walk right through the guards and rescue all four hostages and take them to extraction. Objective Complete!
  3. Greetings! While lying down and being still in the dark is certainly one way that you'll not be seen, there is definately something else at work in the daytime refinery map. I was able to complete an objective unmolested by at least 10 enemy soldiers, while I walk right through them with my empty magazine. More on this in the actual thread.
  4. Greetings! Now that Colt is strictly Govvie, maybe S&W will produce an AR15, as they just came out with their version of the 1911 .45cal pistol.
  5. Greetings! Standing by for translation requests...
  6. Greetings! Please allow me to translate, as I am fluent in gibberish: He is talking about the blast radius of grenades. If in SP you put Dieter Munz as the third man in a squad and have the first man drop a nade on his foot, the blast will kill him and second man, but the third man Munz will have leg and arm wounds.
  7. Greetings! If you were to buy an AR-15 semi-auto, and if the sear pin were to become accidently worn down somehow, well then...
  8. There was an old saying,"curiosity killed the cadet" or something like that.
  9. Greetings! With all due respect, I'd like to see a member of the dev team say such a thing. Quite frankly, after the release of RvS I'd double check anything the Devvie said against the experts in this forum. While I'm no expert, I have played around with custom mission mods and have seen the effect of a wave file emitter set too low to the ground or with the volume up high. This alone can crash GR to desktop, if too much. The comments concerning sounds, including the rain demands on graphics(a double whammy)were right on the money.
  10. Greetings! The main thing is when a player disconnects, that AI soldier can be controlled only by the Platoon Leader. As PL you can switch in and out of your body into the AI body just like in SP. If that AI is carry demo or sensors, you can utilize it when you need to. In the case of these new Stealth missions, an out of control AI can cost you a lot of points and get you killed.
  11. Greetings! Ok--maybe that explains it, it would definately make sense to release the Columbian part to the largely PC clientele.
  12. Greetings! As I said, Jungle Storm is supposed to be a rehashed version of IT for PS2---nothing new there for us. I'm talking about PC's here.
  13. Greetings! I just had someone tell me they read about a new GR1 expansion pack to be released. I went to Ubi's new site and saw nothing except a version of IT for PS2 called Jungle Storm, but that's not it. Has anyone else heard of this, and where did you find it?
  14. Greetings! While I'm afraid I'm not the one to give you a technical explanation of how it works, I can tell you that both the sound and the extended bursts does cause a greater load on the game. One only needs to experience the dip fps, to know it's true. The connection speeds of all the players and the capacity of the server itself can make this more or less of a problem. I've been on some dedicated servers where a support weapon caused no noticable decrease in performance. I believe that just the SOUND of the US SAW, just like an explosion or some music can cause a load on the game. Other support weapons seem to be a little less noisey and more performance friendly. Have you ever noticed that most sound wave files have a very low volume and can only be heard close to the source? That's because if they were louder it would cause the game to crash, or have performance problems. This is even true in SP. :ph34r BTW--interesting article!
  15. Yes, the green and tan camo paint is certainly looking sharp!
  16. Do not sign your miltary contract unless every item of your training program and career path is spelled out in writing. Many people trusting their recruiter to set up what was discussed, only to find out that they have different orders after they've taken the oath! Only with the correct contract do you have any guarantee what jobs you'll be given a chance to qualify for. Good luck!
  17. Greetings! I believe the subject car is a '91 Jetta Carat, so it's first generation (Jetta I). BTW that's a very helpful forum link---thanks Havok!
  18. Check out this link with a '91 Carat pictured. http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/used/re...dex.cfm/id/2111
  19. While my government calls the Saudi government our friends, it's people have the largest population of the Wahabbi sect of Islam. That's the one that bin Laden and Atta were following on 9/11. It's version of the Quran and writings call for the conversion of the world by force and the murder of those who resist. There are still Wahabbist muslims in my New Jersey community, why must we walk on eggshells when discussing murderers?
  20. Greetings! I know there is still conflict with regards to UK sovereignty and being a member of the EU. What about the UK's involvement in the Eurofighter? P.S. I know it's an old article but how'd you like the picture?
  21. I'm currently owning my second VW. The first was a 1987 Quantum that had a 5 cylinder Audi engine, this was the most trouble free car I'd ever had. I retired it after 247,000 miles, only because I didn't want to replace the head after the water pump failed and bent the valves. I presently have a 1996 Jetta w over 100,000 on it and fully expect to put another 100K on it easily. Each model year and engine type has different problem areas to look out for, check the car your looking on Consumer Reports Used Car Guide. It will show system repair frequencies and bugs for that model year, and so make you aware of what to check for. For example, there may be frequent trouble with an electronic sensor in a certain year, you'll know to question whether it giving a false reading or if it's a true warning light. The tranny is extremely important since you must get a rebuild from VW with only a 90 day warranty if it fails. If the tranny makes any noise or misses a shift don't buy that particular car, since a VW rebuild tranny is both expensive and risky. If buying from a private owner: Ask when the last time the car was tuned up, the oxygen sensors are very expensive on the '96 and there are three of them! Ask if the owner has reciepts for repairs and maintenance, it will tell what hasn't been done and needs replacement. Check the Water and note if its dirty, the same with the Oil and the Air filter. It shows if the owner takes care of the vehicle. 1991 is an old model and my decision would be based on figuring how(or if) the owner maintained the vehicle.
  22. UK has never really been involved with that project, especially after the recent disagreements. Basically a join venture by France and Germany to try and gather a force that compares to that of the US, and while the UK and US are allies,i doubt we will ever contribute significantly too it And Britain not joining the euro would make the divisions even wider! Greetings! Check out this story with the cool pic of a British soldier with this infernal rifle. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/1032336.stm
  23. Greetings! It's amazing what the right outfit, a little bit of make-up, and a pair of boots will do!
  24. Greetings! With grades and test scores like yours, I've known of Docs who have passed a "legally blind in one eye" geek, whose back condition excused him from lifting more than 50lbs! If they want you, you'll get in. BTW--I heard a recruiter once say that the Army Reserve will take an ASVAB score of 11---I mean you gotta be a ###### to score that low.
  25. Greetings! I noticed a theme in todays newspaper headlines---"Americans Fear more Attacks". I for one, am tired of our media giving comfort to these fiends with these statements that give terrorists power over us. I would rather like to read about how much fear the US is causing Al Queda.
