  1. I just want to say thank you to GRIN_Wolfsong for being here and giving us hope I really like Graw 2 minus the few flaws. Seeing the activity on the boards is inspiring thank you to all those that are still attempting to make this a better game and community.
  2. To answer your question no I don't think expecting support is foolish the game is not even 8 months old yet. I am tired of gamers with this notion about support for a game, they've made revenue off their game if it fails or not support should be given aleast the first full year of a product. Put more time in the product and it will sale time being test test and more test rather than hype,hype or more hype.
  3. Well the title speaks for itself I love Graw2 very much, and tell what I know the rest of you do as well because if we did not like the game this board would be empty and no post would exist. I check every chance I get to see if the patch has been released or new info given.It just makes me sick of UBI and anyone that decides to do business with them. I have been here since the early beginnings rainbowsix urban operations and ravenshield however, I did not play ghostrecon on pc. The xbox was the first time I played ghostrecon it was a good game till the glitchers ruined it. I have since played [GR] on the pc here lately with my clan members and its much better then what was offered on the xbox in so many ways. Graw2 is close to [GR] than graw1 was and in some ways better dare I say graphics of course,no tracers,que for bringing up scope once your done running things like these were needed. None the less the game falls short on the server side and some major gameplay elements like getting wounded when shot or how the impact of being shot disables you from shooting back. I like how you can take cover if your fast enough or able to get behind something and shield yourself, with these things missing I understand the plea of those that played [GR] on pc from the beginning. I would like to ask the pc community to do themselves a favor and not purchase any ubi products if we do not get a patch which address majority of Graw2's basic or should I say major gameplay issues an add some sort of content. It may be a day late but its not a dollar short because they have my money and I want a fixed game even if I have to play the updated version by myself or with friends to get what I payed for.I am tired of the one year production rehashes which use to be expansion packs now cost full price offering really noting innovative.Ubi is not the only bad apple in the gaming scene, but they have become the worst one. Games I purchased that are still broken yet another one is on the way: 1.Rainbowsix Lockdown (UBI) 2.Rainbowsix Vegas did not learn my lesson (UBI) 3.SplinterCell DoubleAgent (UBI) 4.Graw1 good game but Graw2 should have been its expansion pack cost a mere 19.99 or 30.00 at best (UBI) 5.Graw2 waiting where is the patch (UBI) 6.John woo presents StrangleHold (MidWay) 7.ArmedAssault (Biohemia/Atari) Companies like crytek put in a lot of time and effort for crysis yeah it hit or misses do to the high system requirements, but I like what they have done. Taken a risk to give us true pc gamers what we have been asking for something to push the 300-500 dollar video card to its limits as well as the CPU and ram.Crysis is a work of art and a great game its only missing in the content and performance area which I am sure will be fixed in due time.This company deserves your money while other companies should be put out of the business for selling defective products.Sure it has the ea logo which is questionable I know their track record, but maybe ea can change with the exception of Madden/NBA live on Pc they have been giving us some nice products.I really like the risk they have taken with the need for speed series Pro Street is awesome.Plus they have Spore ea has listened to the pc community to some extent and UBi could careless all they seem to want is revenue. They have hurt us where it hurts ruined several top tier games so I ask you to do the same hurt them were it hurts their pockets make informed decisions when purchasing any games and spread the word on companies doing bad business.After all they have the government protecting them with the bogus return policy laws if something is defective I should be allowed to return it. Now if they can deliver a grade a title with grade a support then a purchase is surely in order key work grade A.I am not against the company just against the companies bad practices making a quick buck off of uninformed customers.Lets spread the word they may not read these forums but I bet they can read their bank account statement!!!!! INSUFFICIENT FUNDS Thanks for reading happy virtual hunting.
  4. I'm just correcting statements that are not entirely true. Not answering questions... well... I think I prevented the Fort thing from happening again... anyone tries it... they will feel what a bottomless pit is like. Also fixed the error in the "info stand" collision on that map. Not really involved in the GRAW2 patch at all, just do minor fixes I stumble opp on and can do something about without taking time from the project I'm actually working on. Is it safe to assume your the person to correct the collision with the trees and other flaws with collision in the game then Wolf? Do you know if we will be getting back the old way of selecting our kits I had to ask? I know you said you not involved just looking for any intel you can or is willing to give.
  5. Just playing the game today and realized what I feel is a missing tool; binoculars. I may not play as a sniper,but snipers have lookouts also it would be nice to scour the area before advancing. It added a nice level of realism to the game and goes perfect in this game. This would also add balance as to locate a sniper and use the tac map to find a path and take him/her out. There are many other tools that could be used however,I have only came up with this one so far. If an expansion is in the works please add the handy binoculars!!!
  6. Looking at the worst and hoping for the best .I have an Idea don't know if it would work,but would it be possible to use Coop modes as the basis to mod us an tdm and maybe other modes where we could choose our own kits like graw1 I think the kit restrictions put a damper on the game also. I still like the game and hope the mod seen can get something going positive sorry most of you feel the way you do, but I understand your frustration and disappiontment with the publisher and devs. Thanks for the replies you have given and lets hope the devs and ubi are paying attention seeing as they are part of microsoft games for windows maybe if we stick to our guns and don't buy any lubi tittles they will start to listen.
  7. This Game is not dead nor will it ever die because it was made for the hardcore tactical gamer. What I mean by hardcore tac gamers? These tactical gamers play this game faithfully never calling someone a cheat unless the proof is written on the well yes they may feel cheated,but never accuse the individual because like in the court of law you are innocent until proven guilty. This may be a video game (arcade anyone meant for fun) however,its a tactical game first. Its roots started there and thats where they lie. Other shooters pretend to be sims yes this one game GR:AW 2 is the real thing,and yes it has its faults just like the legal system nothing is perfect. I Applaud all who are putting an effort to making this game what it should be in the first place full of content and fun. Ubi may have hindered this series but Grin have tried their best within the limits given them to give us the game we all wanted and desire.I like the mods and mappacks that have been made thus far by our community and would ask you to not abandon us now in my opinion this game is starting to take off. I am still hoping to see a few more patches addressing performance,anti-cheat measures,autodownloading,true in game chat, and some more content from Grin which would be nice.Also more advertising would not hurt sales the PC game is not getting the PR it deserve!!!! I am currently beta testing Crysis,Frontlines Fuel Wars just got halo3 for my kids XBOX360 yet I still want my GR:AW2 its something I can't live without this is a great game given the chance it can grow so I appeal to the modders please don't stop helping a good game become a great game isn't this what you did for the [Ghost Recon]? Thank You all for your hardwork hope you all can get along. Peace see you on the battlefield Castle Day anyone:)
  8. New Drivers for download if you have not already, Released today.
  9. Crash in application version: 30621.2989 data\lib\units\extensions\inventory.dsf(-1): cant find member: stance_block in type <UE_ScriptExtension> Renderer: threaded Physics : threaded
  10. I tend to play on xe server and core, when I want more of a challenge bda because of the limited spawns. Those are the main ones I play on right now as I get the best ping in those rooms I generally shoot for a ping of 60-135.
  11. Only a wish but what company would you guys/gals like to see develope our beloved games R6/Ghostrecon besides those that currently do? I do miss the weapon selection of ravenshield and gameplay to some extent also the closing and opening of doors in ghostrecon.
  12. Well I am running two vista systems with four gigs of ram and it makes all the difference. I tested this, in one system I had six gigs of ram the other 2 gigs ran Rainbowsix Vegas simultaniously and noticed the 2gig system chugging.So I removed 2 gigs from the 6gig system and placed 2 additional gigs in the lessor system viola the chugs went away. My systems are 64bit setups both Q6600 cpu's and mid range graphics gards nvidia 640mb gts,and ati sapphire hd2900xt. I say get 4 gigs you will not regret it trust me on this one.
  13. Well the game servers are empty becasue of cheaters and constant cheat acqusations,along with a few game problems and high computer specs required to run this game. Its not the devs fault, we have high system requirements, but maybe a better anti cheat will help or strenghten the one already in the game thanks for the responses.
  14. Very Nice system it will work and with setttings on max. I have the Q6600 its a great processor only thing you may want to add is 2 more gigs of ram for future games other than that your fine.
  15. First Off I love The GRAW series and believe it to be a good game with some minor adjustments It has the makings of a Great Game. Taking what I have said into account then how come the servers are empty let me give a few OPINIONS follow this: 1.Cheaters are in everthing its just a part of life from sports,reading,studing,testing you name it.Someone has cheated or atleast attempted to cheat it. Everyone on this planet wishes they could cheat DEATH!!!!!!!!! 2.One way to curb cheating is to play with rules or someone you know and trust key word trust Like we all trust our mom and in most cases our fathers lol. Professional Sports had to control cheating, why do you think we have referee's? 3.The DEMOGRAPHICS of the PC gamer has changed greatly over the years and Kids can now be found in the PC community with ease. 4. Online gaming is not a level playing field for the most part if it where we would not have to worry about Ping. My upload is 768 your upload is 256 your closer to the server and have better ping is this cheating? NO! I have a fair chance of getting you as you have of getting me because of my internet connection.Someone on the other end in the same room as me, lives in the same state has an upload of 128 chances of him/her getting the kill is lowered with no cheating envolved. 5.Why is there different keyboards,gaming mouses,high and low end graphics gards,better cpu's,ram and of course the monitor 13" vs 23" what a difference LCD vs CRT: in someway or fashion someone has the edge is it cheating? NO! 6.Practice makes perfect some of us play the game for hours on end none stop, some play for a few hours, some for a few minutes. In this case the person who plays the most in most cases have the edge. Is this cheating? NO! 7. Hyperthetically Speaking I am 45 your 15 I kill you 60 times in a row you kill me 20 the younger mind in most cases would quickly call me a cheater its just part of the youngsters nature and immature state of mind to not understand I may be better them him. 8.Gaming Has become a pasttime similar to the likes of sports,tv,or going to the Movies. Like it or not its an important part of our lives, if it wasn't then why would we get upset when we loose or when someone is cheating? 9.GRAW1&2 is more of a simulation then any of the other games we tend to play, its sort of in a class of its own. While it gets a few things wrong I feel it gets a lot more right. Kit selection in the original Graw was spot on in my opinion and would have liked to see its return in 2, some say it created an unbalance I say otherwise.I like the limitations on the explosives which otherwise would ruin the game. I think the purpose of explosives is for clearing a choke point or clearing an area of heavy resistance and not for carpet bombing. (If you want to carpet bomb go play the other fps with vehicles like planes or enormous amounts of nades arcade games or just pick up a combat FligthSimulator.) 10.Cheat acqusations should be a bandable offense in servers if you have no proof to give the admin or provide to the community. They ruin the fun while the game is being played.If you feel you've been cheated get proof or move to another server that does not include the person you suspect is cheating. Take screenshots get programs like fraps, by all means help and not moan. Cheating is a part of life it does not have to be apart of our gaming communities if you help the admins keep peace by submitting your findings. My reason for this post is to give some positive thoughts to this community and my fellow gamers. I love gaming on the PC and feel the reason we are loosing ground to the console is inpart our fault. We are for the most part closed minded to the facts of why console gaming has become a success. One: One configuration for all so developement is a snap in most cases. Two: Cheating while it may exist, its easier to maintain or eliminate. Three: Kids settle for almost anything. Four:Most Importantly We the parents purchase the consoles for our kids and feed the frenzy, so we lose lol!!! Five:Unless We demand more from the games we currently purchase things may not change.Like why do I pay $500 dollars for a video card and get the short end of the stick, but still purchase the game knowing it sucks.In other words lets not support these subpar companies like UBI, I know Grin is a good company but I will no longer support them if they continue to work for UBI. Unless UBI change their ways and give us the respect we deserve. (Seems Like my video card purchase is furthering the future of the console what gives?) Conclusion: If the game is to survive quit with the cheating acqusations get some practice, upgrade your computer, get more ram,get a better connection, or get a job and move on. In anycase either be a dedicated player or sideline yourself. If your going to be something be to best this means equiping yourself with the best and not crying if someone else does. Special Note: 6.Even the best have bad days so quit with the acqusations when as you call them a noob gets you. 7.Teenagers have faster reflectses in some cases, so get some bengay and get ready for a whippin all in good fun. Not to Step on Toes let me Thank GRIN FOR THE GAME bring on the patches, and Mods. Remember Its a game HAVE FUN FIRST AND LOOSE OR WIN SECOND MOAN LATER!!!!!!!
  16. Just wondering how many can I host running a dedicated server on a 768 Upload just curios thanks? I was figuring around setting it between 12 or 16 would this be doable? The system will be running a quadcore setup and 4gigs of memory with pagefiling off.
  17. Here Ya Go Thanks Grin for the game last time purchasing a Ubi title and I only purchased the game because I appreciate the Team over at Grin. Oh and I love the Games as well lol Thanks for the hardwork.
  18. Ok I admit it I am not buying ubi games however, I do like Graw2 Just not the weapon selection for multiplayer. If You can either give us the selection From GRAW 1 PC or SinglePlayer Graw2 like what I saw in the preview. The Game is decent a nice improvement from the previous version this could have been and expansion. Thank You Grin For your work and hope someone picks You and Your company and give you time to really give us a game we want and one you can truly be proud of without all of the business restrants you must be dealing with from working with UBI.
  19. I beta tested as well but have since changed emails do to the disaster in New Orleans Louisiana Living in Texas now having fun so all is not bad except I mis Home.
