  1. Heh copy that. I am already step-dad to her 2 year old daughter right now, and shes gorgious right now so I just know I'll be dealing with a lot of that lol. I'm just glad to have a boy
  2. Went to the ultra sound place yesterday morning. Was very anxious as I knew we'd be finding out what the baby's sex was. After a nice long ultra sound experience, the nurse lady FINIALLY got to the "what is the sex of the baby" part. As soon as I seen "those parts" on the ultra sound, I just knew exactly what I was looking at lol. I was overjoyed as I seen this. I asked god for a boy, and he's giving me one! Some clips from the ultra sound. There are prolly like a good 15+ minutes of this, but it was just taking to long to edit, render, and upload. So I stopped at 3 parts. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
  3. I've always wonderd why Blizzard never made this sooner. I've been waiting for a StarCraft II, or some sort of new SC game for a LONG time. What I'd REALLY like, is a World of StarCraft. I've tried World of Warcraft and it was ok... but I think a StarCraft version would be way better, and i'd be more willing to hand over that $15 a month or whatever it was for WoW. Either way, I can't waite to get my hands on StarCraft II. Gotta love those Blizzard CG movies after every couple missions. Hell, thats probably the reason I played Single Player most of the time was just to watch those CG movies.
  4. Demo works for me. I just downloaded it earlier tonight to actually see how the game is and yea it works. I put screen resolution at 1024x768x32 and most settings at ultra high, except for shadows which I left low. Basicly I didn't really get to test how the game ran as I wanted to do co-op, and unfortunatly I couldn't find any servers that actually did anything. The ONE server I made it in, I was stuck as a seagul, so I left and created my own host just so I could actually play. No one joined my room, and so I was forced to get pwned with my fellow AI team-mates lol. Deffinitly picking up the full version when the money becomes available. Wanted to get it with this paycheck coming this Friday, but unexpected expenses my girlfriend told me about probably will stop me from making the purchase. Hopefully in 2 weeks from this Friday i'll be able to get my ArmA on lol. Ohyea, if anyone has a decent Demo Co-op server, plz lemme know cuz if this is the best I can get out of the demo, then it wasn't worth the download.
  5. Copy that Buehgler. That sounds like the most realistic thing that would happen. I don't see a reason why they would split up the compatibility with other countries ect. I'd hate to have to buy another ArmA when the US version is released. Difference for me is either buying ArmA this Friday, or waiting until May 1st. I obviously want it ASAP, so this Friday sounds like the better deal to me. Quick question: The english version, is that basicly a UK version right? If I were to play SP or something, will the voices have the UK accent? If so, is there a way to get the US accent in-game for realism purposes? Thanks for the quick reply as well.
  6. So yea, I REALLY am looking forward to getting this game, but had decided to hold off until May 1st when the US version is released. NOW, i'm starting to question my decision. Is this English version out there right now basicly the same as what I will get with the US Version? If it is so, then I do not see a reason to waite another full month to buy the same game I can get... right now. Thx.
  7. Hello everyone. I am here today because The BGC has now opend it's recruiting doors for GRAW2 XBOX 360. We want to fill our ranks early, practice in GRAW, and then be ready to go on launch of GRAW2. Some information for you.(yea i know my tags here say SCO, but that was my [GR] PC squad, this is for the XBOX360 squad im in) Squad Name: The Broken Glass Crew Members: 15+ Age Requirement: The age requirement will be 18+ as we are looking for only mature gamers. There will, however, be exceptions for those of you who are younger, but are mature. So, if you're young, don't fret, you may still make it in! Website: www.thebgc.net Feel free to come on over, register on the forums, and chat with us if you like. (the site is there, but is going through MAJOR reconstruction so there will be a new site launched in the future) Times we play: Well, basicly we've got people playing around the clock. I work night shifts, and I've got people to game with during the early morning/afternoon ( Mountain Standard Time ), then on my days off, I will game all night till the early morning... so don't fear of time zone conflictions. I will post a small paragraph of What the BGC stand for, and what it means to be BGC. The whole thing is to long, but you can find it on the mainpage of our website if you'd like to read the rest: "We fight hard in every battle with honor and integrity. We pride ourselves on fighting cleanly and to the end while upholding the reputation of our clan and clan-mates. We work and train at being the best but not at the cost of our principles and standards and aim to lead others by example with class and dignity. We always show the respect to our opponents, win or loose, that we would want to be shown in return." Games we play: Rainbow 6: Vegas, GRAW, GRAW2(on release) Note: We used to play ChromeHounds as well, but with the destruction of the game caused by the latest patch, we have postponed this as one of our Squad Games. We may however, take this game up once again in the future. We are looking for mature, dedicated, and disciplined gamers for our Rainbow 6:Vegas, GRAW, and GRAW2 squads. Skill level is not relevant as you can be trained to be a better gamer but we will not tolerate immature players, people running around screaming, or playing dishonorably by cheating, boosting, glitching, or any other form of dishonorable conduct. Here is our application: (1) What is your Xbox Live gamertag?: (2) How did you hear about the Broken Glass Crew?: (3) What are your reasons for wanting to join the Broken Glass Crew?: (4)What Xbox/Xbox360 games do you play or plan on playing? (5) What time zone are you in and what times do you usually play?: (6) If you have any comments or questions for us, please enter them here: Plz write this up, register on our forums, and post it over there in the recruitment section. Once you are contacted by an admin you will be taken and given a tryout of your skill level and knowledge of the game. This won't be a deciding factor in your application but it helps us gauge what sort of training and assistance you will need. Also, my GamerTag on xbox Live is ishootikill. Feel free to send me a friend request. Once a decision is made there will be a 30 day period to which will be a way for us to judge your character, skill level, and dedication to the squad. If you have any questions, please feel free to post here, send me a PM, or head on over to the BGC forums where there will be heaps of information and also others who can answer your questions. Thank you for your time and I hope to see you out on the battlefield!
  8. Ok, so I currently have a stone-age PC (which just crapped out on me as far as i can tell) and now have the money to upgrade. Heres what I have for a set-up thus far: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz LGA 775 Processor Model MotherBoard: MSI P965 Platinum LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard Video Card: ATI Radeon X1950PRO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card RAM: CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400 Power Supply: ENERMAX Liberty ELT500AWT ATX12V 500W Power Supply Tower: RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black SECC STEEL ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply Ok, so now for my questions: CPU: I heard on other forums and from Toms Hardware guides, that the 6400 is better overall then the 6600 because it can OC to a faster speed on stock cooling. What are your takes on this, and is there any reason why I should deffinitly go for the 6600 instead? Mother Board: Again, on Toms Hardware, they tested a variety of MoBos and the one I chose came out on top. Anyone use this board and can tell me why I should deffinitly get it, or why I should not? Also, anyone who wishes to tell me which board they use and why they think it's better then the one I have chosen, feel free to chime in. Tower: I only chose this because someone recommended it to me from another site. Anyone know of any better towers that are around that same price range? I don't really need all the shiney o0o0's and ahh's. I just want a basic tower that has good ventilation and cooling. If the one I chose is decent, then i'll leave it there even though it probably costs more just because of its fancy LED lights and all that BS lol. RAM: Again, only chose this because someone on another forum recommended it to me. 1 guy did mention a buddy of his went through 6 stix of this RAM with it being no good every time, so they ended up going down to the next lower speed or something. Anyone else have experience with this RAM? Anything better out there I should check into? Thats about it.... normally i'd probably ask about the video card as well... but it always seems to end up being a "flip a coin" type thing. I am going with this card because I never used NVidia befor, and have always used ATI in the past. I also plan on upgrading to Windows Vista and a DX10 video card in the future. Thanks for all help that can be given to me. Also, remember to speak in PC Newb terms to me so I can understand what your saying lol. Thanks
  9. It is pretty damn expensive, and I thought it was justified by them havign to have LOTS of GOOD servers for so many people... but what U said makes me change my opinion. If thousands or even millions of people are online playing this, all paying for it, then they should deffinitly be making plenty of money for the servers plus a good bit of pocket change. Anywayz, it is pretty damn fun for me so far, but like LightSpeed said, it could end up getting old, i've only had it for a few days so im still brand new to it and am quite addicted. I guess it also depends on if you really like this kind of game or not. There is about to be an expansion pack coming out called The Burning Crusade in Early-Mid january(i forget the exact date). It adds 2 new races, a whole new "land" or "world" whatever it is, new skillz, items, ect ect ect. You can download it for free off blizzards site and I think you get like a 10 or 14 day trial, so I'd say try it out, if you think you can keep playing and pay for it, then do so. Game itself is pretty cheap to buy... only like $20 USD at BestBuy. LightSpeed- Only thing bad about trading this in for ArmA is that from wat i've heard, you need a real kick-ass PC to run ArmA. This game runs nicely on my PoS AMD 1.8 Ghz, 512 MB RAM, Radeon 9800 PRO 128MB, with DSL 7mb/s internet. Dunno how well or even IF ArmA would run on my PC lol.
  10. My girlfriend bought me this game for x-mas and im just starting to try it out and man is it addictive lol. I was curious if anyone here plays this? My Info: Realm: Boulderfist (PvP) Race: Horde Type: Hunter Accnt Name: ShadowSpyder I know there are tons of different realms and for different things, (PvE, PvP, and RPG) but im hoping by chance that someone might be on the same realm and also on Horde. Maybe
  11. My hopes and thoughts exactly. I dont know if it's just this crappy PC and Monitor that i've got here at work... or if it's just YouTube, but just about every video i've watched there dosnt have the best quality. That's why I wanna see a nice quality fan made GRAW PC video/movie so i can really see all the detail.
  12. Hmmph... with the 3 years i've been a member of Gr.net you'd think i'd just look there first.... jeeze... i guess it's just the tired-ness starting to hit me in the early morning lol. Thanx Rocky.
  13. Haha, yea i believe that GRAW is a great game. I have it for the 360 right now... but i believe it's gonna go the same route it went with me for Gr1. I bought it on XBOX, it didnt feel very good, i think i read on these exact forums way back when that Gr1 on the PC just felt so much better, so i went n got GR1 and wouldnt ya know it, Gr1 was a TON better on the PC. Gr1 was my first actual real game for the PC.. and it basicly launched me into my PC gaming "career" lol. I do plan on doing the overhaul. This game is one of the top reasons to do it. I am a huge fan of Co-op... how is it in GRAW PC? I prolly will need more then an hour and a half... but i get relieved from my post at 6 AM and it's 4:30 Am now so I wont be able to view them all.. but hey, theres always all of tomorow night lol.
  14. Thank you very much PONDLIFE. I guess i'll be spending my next hour n 30 min of work watchin some Vids lol. Thx again.
  15. Hey everyone, I've been gone for quite a while. Met a lady, moved across the US, dont have my PC sent out to me yet, my employer finially got the internet for the PC which is right behind the desk I work at so i figured i'd hop on. I have checked in every now n then though. I want to pick up GRAW but from what i read, i will need an overhaul on my PC once it gets shipped to me first. So, to crave my appatite, i was wondering if anyone has created any nice GRAW Movies or anything like that? I remember a bunch being made for GR1 so i figured maybe there are some for GRAW. Well, thanks for any help that is provided. Cheers
  16. Copy that... theres deffinitly going to be 1 dedicated server, possibly 2 at the 248th. Our Echo TeamSpeak server is gafs.hopto.org:8790 password 248, so sign that guest book thing on the 248th website, hop on TS once in a while (people are usually on all times of the day and night).
  17. Copy that. I am a member of the FreeBirds. Right now they are trying to get people to do testing. They gotta find people with dial-up internet and good computers, dial-up internet and not so good computers, then people with cable with good computers, and people with cable with bad computers. It's gonna be a huge test that there gonna try doing and im expecting it to take a while. In the end I do believe they will make the switch. I am also a part of the 248th Diamon Dogs Virtual Fighter Squadron and we will be going into Allied Force. Website is www.248th.info so check it out if your interested.
  18. http://www.lead-pursuit.com/news.htm It has been officially released. Should be in a store near u in 3 weeks MAX. Enjoy.
  19. 2 Links to download the 2 short videos that were taken also: Movie 1 Movie 2 Hope you enjoy them.... hopefully I am able to go to the ThunderBirds airshow in Atlantic City, NJ on August 31st. (as of now that is.. there site says there schedual is subject to change) and take more pictures.
  20. Hey everyone,I am currently making a website and not very good with HTML (im using FrontPage). I would like to put an in an area on the home page of the site that will allow me to add news and what-not and have it be like a backdrop that can scroll down to see previous news and announcements. An example can be found here http://www.disturbed1.com/ . This has what I am looking for.... any help would be greatly appreciated. Thx
  21. Well..... I've never heard of Graphsim until F4:AF so I'm not concerned. I'm just happy that Falcon is getting another chance.... that's all that matters... even if AF sux, at least it leaves possibility to be sold to a better company to make even better. Just gotta cross our fingers n hope it's good I guess.
  22. Hey Silent_Op. Nice to see your coming back to the god of flight sims. Unfortunatly I was probably WAY to young to fly Falcon 3.0. Hell, I was to young to fly Falcon 4 when I first bought it. 18 now, been flying F4 for about 3-4 years. GREAT sim. To answer your questions, I use the Saitek X45 HOTAS flight stick and it comes with the rudders on the throttle, so no pedals for me. Don't use TrackIR, but it looks interesting enough to try out sometime. I am a member of FreeBirds Virtual Fighter Squadron. They are a VERY great bunch of guys, very into the realisim of the sim. Also probably has one of THE best training programs out there. We do Basic Flight Training, Combat Weapons Training, Advanced Strike Training, Ariel Combat Readiness Training, and lastly Sustained Combat Readiness Operations. If F4:AF is as good as it's sounding, we will most likely move from Falcon 4 to Falcon 4: Allied Force, so since your getting it, I would recommend checking the FreeBirds out, maybe join up if your interested and not already in a squad. Well... feel free to contact me any time.. AIM is HondaMXer1313 and MSN IS SCO_Spyder@hotmail.com. TTYL
  23. All I can say is WoW! I love the new way to control everyone with the mouse, MUCH easier then SWAT3 in my eyes. Plus it looks GREAT. All I need now is for more SCO members to get it so i have someone to game with. Anyone out there who is interested in Co-Op play and lookin for another guy to game with.... please send me a message, replie to this thread, my MSN is SCO_Spyder@hotmail.com so you can contact me there, or e-mail is HondaMXer13_13@yahoo.com Thanx. Well, im off to game some more. L8er
  24. I just got SWAT4 yesterday and its probably one of the best games i've ever played. But back on track, I havnt made it as far as some i guess.... but one thing I thought was kinda bad was on the (i believe) red library when you get up the stairs and theres a guy wounded and the elevator doors keep closing on his head.... kinda funny in a way... but kinda harsh... i mean, the guy is already shot and in agony, and now hes got elevator doors closing on his head. Also the mother pleading for her daughter was quite disturbing. Made me wanna let a clip go into that suspects head. Anwayz, im off to see what else
  25. Well, the origional GOD of combat flight sims, Falcon 4.0, is getting upgraded and put back out on the shelves. I know I'm getting it. Just a heads up. Check out the Falcon 4 forums at www.frugalsworld.com for A LOT more info. That's where I go for my Falcon news. L8er
