  1. So what were the results? I didn't get back from Af-Paki in time to sign up.
  2. Hey all!!! I haven't been around much lately due to work and getting ready for deployment. I leave in the early morning hours tomorrow (June 1st). This contract is for 6-12 months, but have set up the home system to be accessed remotely. Also, the GR server is still up and open to the public, with the mods set to alternate every 3 days. IP address for the server is: Good gaming to all! P@LaD!n
  3. Thanks! I thought it was just me who had conflicts with Navy Seals 2.1 and FB 3.1. Too bad, I've always liked the NS2.1 mod. There's also Sixpence's Seals 1.5 as an option, but I've never tried it with FB.
  4. Sometimes when you're stuck on a mission in GR, Desert Siege, or Island Thunder, it might be worth a shot taking a look at the strategies listed in the "walkthroughs" section here at GRnet. The link is here. When you mention the camp, are you referring to the tent camp on the right side of the map, or the group of enemies near the small shack on the left side of the map? **** SPOILER ALERT - Possible spoiler information follows ******** The enemy AI in the tent camp (where the yellow objective waypoint is on the right side of the map) is there to reinforce the caves i
  5. Hmmm, I wonder how GR would run from a USB thumb drive? Probably pretty slow, but if not, hmmm could make for some interesting fun during lunchtime at work. Well....actually.... I got in a few weeks ago an NTA network terminal client box that I purchased on Craigs List for about $10. It's basically a modernized dumb terminal, meaning it has Windows XP loaded - but on a flash ROM chip rather than a hard disk drive. One of my clients used them a couple of years ago and when we had trouble with the WAN connection being too weak to access applications (MS Office and others) via the netwo
  6. Glad you're having fun! I may step away from the game from time to time but I always come back. My choice of computers tends to run toward business use and ruggedized equipment over high-powered processors and video cards for gaming - thus most of the modern games won't run on my laptop, but GR is always there. Even on a laptop running from a USB hard drive, I can still enjoy the game as much as ever. With so many mods out there it's hard sometimes to remember what it's like to play the original missions with the original weapons. I did that around Xmas time, just plain GR/DS/IT through
  7. I know, it's what my mom would have called "a crock..." and I don't mean the sharp toothed reptile. I'd been holding off releasing my two new mods waiting for both the new GRnet download system, as well as hunting around trying to find my own that would take over 100mb as an upload. What a pain in the behind! Yeah, it could have been handled much much better. I'm glad that the original founders have regained the site, but some type of notice would have been nice....something that said "Hey, we're working on it, wait a short while". While I might use FF as an alternate s
  8. Really sorry to hear the news Para. Condolences from my family to yours. My daughter lost her cat last October just before I got home and she still cries when she thinks about it, or when we find one of its toys under the couch. Deepest condolences and best wishes in your time of grief & sorrow.
  9. Hey all. Here in Phoenix, AZ it's time for the annual USAF air show and we went onto the Luke AFB website to get the schedule of events for the weekend at this link. While the event times for aerial demonstration teams is great and the lineup this year is cool (not to mention that I'm actually gonna be in town to see it) I can't help but pause at the statement at the top of the page: *All events and times are subject to change with regard to weather, fallout or uncontrolled circumstances Okay now, how often does fallout become an issue around here? I've had my home in Arizona f
  10. Sorry for chiming in on this so late. For opfor military I tend to assign the weapons like a fire team R (Rifleman), R, R, R, G (Grenadier), AR (Automatic Rifleman - SAW/MG). I don't often assign RPGs to the military forces kits unless there is friendly armor involved, but when I do I will either substitute the RPG's for the 40mm launcher of the Grenadier, or if it's a really hard mission, add RPG's to one of the rifleman actors. I don't like using kits with more than 1-3 RPGs though, primarily for the reasons already stated by others on this thread. For mercenaries, weapons issued
  11. Really sorry to hear about your troubles Nat....bad bad bad situation. It makes me remember all too well when Charlie hit SW Florida and wiped us out - ages of work lost to the water damage. That's when I learned that fireproof safes weren't waterproof as when we got the drawers open the backup tapes were waterlogged. To try and get your data back, another thing you can do is go down to your local 'puter store (we've got a Fry's Electronics here in Phoenix) and get one of those USB drive cases for $20. Install your drive into the case and plug it in to another computer and you should b
  12. We may just end up bumping into each other. I injured my leg skiing this weekend so I won't be going on the 31st as planned...it'll be several weeks before I'll be able to head out. Not going on schedule means I've blown the sign on bonus with the company, but at least they still want me when I get better. With this economy I need the money...I've got three kids of my own and a stepdaughter to put through college.
  13. I've always enjoyed GR and I'm happy that I can play it on good old standard type laptops without it crashing. Now, as for dedication...I dunno...kinda screwed up on that. Went skiing up towards Flagstaff way this weekend and hyperextended my knee, and nearly dislocated my hip. I'm used to being a fast healer but the docs say it'll take several weeks before I'm back on my feet without crutches or a cane...which blows my departure on the 31st *and* my sign on bonus with the company. I suppose on the plus side I'll have some more time to finish the mods I've been working on.
