Recruit - 2nd Class

Recruit - 2nd Class (3/13)



  1. LOL Classic . I used to play PC GRFS1 in Australia with quite a few people but a week before 1.4 patch was released, most just gave up , we were sick and tired of the matching , crashing and uplay. A group of 6 of us fire the game up every now and then for an Gorrila game. As it seems to be the only stable online mode we can get going, along with we can make sure its low ping AU/NZ players not random matched overseas laggy people. I tired GRO Open Beta, was disapointed. Recently been playing Planetside 2 on the AU briggs server and Hawken Open Beta on the AU server, so much more fun
  2. I bought Diablo 1 and 2 back in the day but Number 3 isnt getting me on the sale . Its very annoying to have to use the internet constantly to play a single player match. They removed LAN function from Diablo in number 3. It costs more on the us blizzard store if your buying from AU. It costs more from the US blizzard store in AU compared to the AU retail disc. For me 20 dollars for Torchlight 2 is going to be a better investment . With the money I save I can buy Orcs Must Die 2 and Worms Revolution when those 2 games come out
  3. If they put as much effort into Anti pirating efforts, in making a game, then Games might be worth buying legit . Ive bought every R6 legit except for Lockdown and some of the older titles twice . I've bought Gr1 , one of the exp packs and GRAW1 legit Didn't worry about GRAW2 it seemed to far away from GR 1 ORG to worth supporting. Things that effect people pirating games on PC and console's (Yes Cracked games are on PS2 , WII , Xbox1 , Xbox2/360 ) * Game isnt available legit in their country when its already been out for weeks/months in another country (Good example I have been to 12 stores looking for Delta Force Xtreme 2 no one has it or can stock it in Australia) * Game is twice or third the price compared to USA/Europe retail. (Happens A LOT in Australia) * Game on Digital download is the same or more then local/overseas retail (Used to happen on STEAM A LOT till so many people complained it got to a level that steam FINALY listened) * Game has annoying protection that acts like spyware/malware. * Game if its in a series is to far away from the first/first few in the series , so far dumbed down that they should of make a new series for Casual gamers and left the series the way it was for "hardcore" gamers. * Game has no Stand Alone Dedicated Server program thus no online servers , then why play online. * Game in the consumer view should be cheaper * Games lack decent LAN COOP support without needing internet (eg playing at a mates place without internet , playing at a public lan partie with 40-200 others and NO internet , playing at a gaming net cafe together without needing a online account or all using the internet when they are beside each other) * Games in general upon retail are VERY BUGGY since 2001 , why pay money for a game , thus showing your supporting for a game that is clearly having NO DECENT beta bug testing in place , doesn't work with half the consumers systems or the protection method infact prevents legit buyers in playing the game. I agree pirates will prevail, but it's only right publishers should attempt to protect their products, it's when that protection hurts the legitimate buyer (ie rootkits/limited reinstalls etc) I have a serious issue. When does the consumer have the right to install software without DRM , the game work out of the box , and have a proper quality tested product . We don't buy cars with 80% of the engine incomplete and not road tested before they go retail. Ohhh wait games are about making companies money now and not the end users enjoying and having fun or the programmers having respect for the consumer and pride in the quality of their game they worked on
  4. I would like to see more pay commerical games that are on the x86 PC available on Linux and Mac made by the orignal devs not ported by a second company . If the game used OpenGL3 (Which is supported on Linux , Windows and Mac) then at least the graphics wouldn't have to be ported , making it easier for multi platform editions of games . Then again certain current game companies are doing such a bad job of ruining game series by chaning it , dumbing it down , releasing buggy half ###### competed POS games , can we trust these current game companies in coding for Mac and Linux when the Windows editions have so many issues . GR1 for PC is still the best of the entire series in my view , GRAW1 was okayish but GRAW2 just moved so far away its not worth supporting .
  5. - Start on leader spawning I would like to see again - Add start on check point and add check points in the game , nothing worse in GRAW1 then having to walk for 20 min's back to an area . - Add drivable/usable resources - Tanks/cars/boats that the bad guys might of been in or civilians left on the road . - I prefer the GRAW1 interface then GRAW2 for coop also .
  6. Great Post and Good list ! few things I would like added - Make sure it is a PROPER Stand Alone SEPERATE program not a quick and cheap rehash of the game exe (ohh and smaller install size , we dont need to to have Movie clips/intro clips/added junk) - Able to have the server restrict per IP limit - eg block anyone above Ping value (eg over 100 or over 150) - Dedicated server sepereate program (SADS) does not need a serial or need gamespy login acccount - Available at the same time as USA game retail store release date - Able to block text message spammers in game and in the chat lobby - Able to work with Digital Download clients and Retail Store disc clients - Able to work on (Windows edition) Windows 2000 pro , Windows 2003 server (32 bit and 64bit) - Able to work without using the internet (so it works offline at lan parties without internet) - Along with proper seperate SADS for PC , Isnt it about time for SADS for CONSOLE platforms (PS2/PS3/Xbox360/etc) so clans/ISP's/cohost box/lan parties) can host an console dedicated game server without needing an actuall console device
  7. I guess the community has to wait and see what happens for the next Ghost Recon Game , be it GRAW3 or Ghost Recon 4 (GR 1 - ORG , GR 2 - console only , GR3 = GRAW1+GRAW2 , GR4 = next ?) I would like to see coop focus , better use of colors on PC and console , cross platform play , keyboard and mouse supported on console , Proper seperate SADS program for hosting CONSOLE and PC games. I wasnt impressed with the interface with GRAW2 or its feel in general But it looks like the only FPS games that have coop that are coming out soon is : New Delta Force game - Nova logic Ground Branch - Blackfoot studios New Aliens Game - gearbox studios Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger - Atomic Motion http://www.strategyinformer.com/pc/ravensq.../interview.html I doubt Ubisoft/Tom Clancy Conviction new game will have coop (But you never know)
  8. I don't know about overseas but GRAW1 and GRAW2 was basicly DEAD in Australia online since NO PROPER SADS was provied . GRAW1 is played a little at Lan Parties still , its got a better interface then GRAW2 for a lot of people . (Then again both GRAW1 and 2 are moving away from GR1 just like R6 - proper tatical shooters to action noob dumbed down games) GRAW1 seems to have a LOT of ORG coop maps and other addons for it
  9. Does the ORG mod for GRAW2 add RESPAWN option for GRAW2 since it didnt have the option to respawn in coop lan mode Were with the 1.35 patch in GRAW1 it added respawn and more coop player support in ORG mode ?
  10. I only play GRAW1 with: * 1.35 patch * ORG mode * At least 5 other players . * Mumble or teamspeak voice chat software * Team class's - One person 'team leader' which infact a lookout , gives out voice insturctions to team and a mobile respawn point since the game is LIMITED and does NOT support multiple spawn check points (Which a lot of the time ends up being ME which I HATE) - One snipper - run and gun support - medic if coop games support them (often me in this class in Joint ops) - vechile/tank/heli driver if coop games support them - resuce hostage person (often the driver or medic) if the game supports it Server settings: 0 deaths (aka unlimited) 0 time (aka unlimited) match when SERVER is ready Death cam is useless , might aswell turn it off it doesnt work correctly in GRAW1 (Never bothered with GRAW2 that much , since it does not support more then 4 players in coop and respawn in coop )
  11. No one would have to host a server off their own connection at home in Australia if Ubi/whoever released a FREE STAND ALONE DEDICATED SERVER program then aussie ISP's would host a server on their bandwidth for all aussies to join a low 50 ping server instead . No point hosting a server on Australian limited home connections with small download quota and small upsteam . List of Australian ISP LOW PING PC game Servers ( PLEASE DO NOT JOIN ANY OF THESE IF YOU ARE NOT IN AUSTRALIA ) Bigpond ISP - http://bigpond.com/ http://www.gamearena.com.au/getconnected/servers/ Internode ISP - http://www.internode.on.net/ http://games.internode.on.net/ Netspace ISP - http://www.netspace.net.au/ http://network.gamespace.net.au/?sb_page=query iiNet ISP - http://www.iinet.net.au/ http://games.iinet.net.au/gamestats.cgi Eftel ISP - http://w3.eftel.com/ http://www.egn.com.au/servers/listing Pipe & Waix traffic (Australia only - not avail on Cable , ADSL and Wimax only) http://www.3fl.net.au/serverspy/ http://www.waia.asn.au/waix/ http://www.pipenetworks.com/ Is it me , or is there others that find it hard to find a decent game to buy the legit retail edition when so many low quality featureless console ports get half released on PC ? For me what will get me to buy the game: - Decent gameplay before graphics bling - SADS free program support - coop with 8 to 16 players - able to respawn in coop (even if its only 4 to 12 times) - ping limiting supported on the server (block anyone with a ping over 110) - able to install the game without music or solo single player data - ai does not appear to see thou walls and track your moments by the microsecond - Able to use cars/planes/ships/guns like the ai can - Able to have split screen gaming with TWO keyboards and TWO mice on the same PC (idealy having duel output , one person uses monitor , one person uses TV with wireless keyboard/mouse)
  12. what ever the next game is from Ubi from looking at the prev release's we know what it wont be If its an multi platform FPS - it wont be BUG free - it wont be correctly bug/beta testeed - it wont have a free stand alone dedicated server program that does not need retail disc files - it wont support opengl on Windows - it wont have more then EIGHT colors in the game - it wont have a decent coop player support like prev R6 and GR games it will be limited to only 2 to 4 players - it will have more free content on consoles - it will come out on consoles first before pcs - it wont support USB keyboard and mouse on consoles - it wont have spilt screen duel gaming on PC with keyboard/mouse + joypad OR two usb keyboards and mouse - it probly wont have a free downloadable pc demo if it turns out CRAP (eg like Vegas1/2) - it wont be finished game upon retail release another half made game to feed the cash cow - it wont support a native Linux or Mac client
  13. Good level , only played a little so far but like what I see so far . One section with the ability to walk on top of the building is a GREAT IDEA , very kick ###### !!! Found you can walk over to one section then get STUCK (good little side area for a snipper thou ) I dunno if its a bug or not but a guy near the petrol truck managed to get me and I thought it was an rocket guy from far away , he might of walked out of the bin or hiding behind the truck. Cant wait to try this one out with some people . Thanks for the map )
  14. Tried it out , I didnt like it . I perfer not to play any of the levels that have so much black on them when its daylight Might aswell play a night time level . Its a good idea having helper AI but without giving them instructions like humans (via voice) might aswell not have them at times.
  15. Good map , Played it coop ORG solo (couple months before another lan party with coop players) I found it very noticable that AI are respawning by the human walking in a certain area . In some parts (dont go red areas espically) the AI would SPAWN , be faced the other direction , turn around , shoot you in the matter of one second . I would be liked to been able to walk on the right side of the cliff of the bridge like the left side (handy little look out that) Will be recommending some other coop players to try this map for sure. Multiple spawn points for humans or check points would be good but thats a in built limitation of the game ( I made the mistake of throwing a grenade while on the heli pad with the heli , it landed on something and truckloads exploded and bits went flying everywere inculding me which landed in another section of the top building after flying 5 metres in the air (weeeeeee)
