  1. While waiting for GR3 to appear on the horizon I went sifting through various military sims, eventually after prolonged debate with the guy in the store, I forked out hard earned cash and went for First To Fight, despite the over the top cover design on the box! So far its very impressive!! Great attention to detail, sweet visuals, very nice HUD and squad/general controls, they have done some nice work on the audio as well. I wasn't expecting that much to be honest as nothing compares to R6 and GR for me, but this is very nice indeed. Well worth a shot at the demo if you can download it. It has elements of FSW and Raven shield in the mix, but it moves very smoothly and has a very intense feel. This will keep me frosty and away from the pub till GR3 returns........
  2. WK - I am extremely impressed with your knowledge of basic chemistry! A man of many talents........
  3. Obviously, the enemy AI is extremely well camoflauged and only visible through the superior digital scanning analysis of the Ghost AI. ← He he............that'll be it.........
  4. I stand corrected cobaka.......not a word I use often. Still, I admire your efforts to look up the correct spelling and post the link! A man dedicated to good grammar!
  5. Funny that......I had a similar experience last night and my Mrs. was looking funny at me! I had a small rage attack when I realised Ubi have stiffed us again. I really admire the patience and eternally optimistic attitude of some of you guys. You have way more patience than I do.........
  6. A hillside you say?.....hrmmm sounds like they have developed some serious opposing AI. Well, I am waiting with baited breath.....
  7. Forgot to say hi to Avey.......and Zero. Aww dudes i would love to, I am in work right now and doing 12 hour days at the mo'. I will have to try and dig out an old copy of GR and all the mods if I can find 'em... hope you are are both well! See you on the server when I am done with the madness out here in NZ! GR Rocks !!!!!! Ubi can go for a long drive off a short pier......hee hee.........* Apologies to all those offended, I am sure you will all be having sleepless nights in your Ubi pyjamas because of my disguisting comments*....he he......aahhhh where's Sart when I need him?
  8. Ah dear eh, never thought I'd see the day when I had a post deleted for giving Ubi a hard time. He he............ . I certainly didn't mean to offend any 'fans of Ubi'. Its just some of us take a more cynical view when it comes to Ubi, I will always be a Red storm kinda' guy myself. Some of us have been waiting a long, long time for this game, and I have seen some good players and friends leave because UBI did not support the PC community. How many years has it taken to get a new version of GR out? I admire some of the guys here who continue to Mod and support the original version, but when you see other games and the leap in technology that is being constantly made doesn't it rankle you older gr.net guys just a little? Phww.....changed days girls. Like I said I don't particularly care for the way Ubi have stiffed us in the past, and that opinion will not change until I see the goods on the table. I will be the first in line to buy the new Gr when it is released, but I can't believe how long it has taken to get it! So if I was a little over zealous in my criticism, well, that's just the way I am. *edits original phrase* A little peeved at Ubi........until they make it up to me.
  9. Title says it all really....... Ive been playing this series of games for god knows how long and now just when I think they are actually, just for a change, just for once, maybe this time going to give us the next game that the faithfull GR PC community deserve, .............they pull that joker out again. Makes me sick man....... The console always gets prefferential treatment and its got jack to do with adding in extras, they just leave us PC users at the back of the queue! Anyway, best get back to building my house..........hello to all the old skool heads at gr.net.....see you on the server whenever GR3 is out!
  10. Verbrilli sound/Boards of Canada/Incubus/Hendrix/Blue six.
  11. Haven't seen it..........but it sounds worth a look! Let us know if you do watch it.
  12. Hey Havok!...should be ready in the next few weeks ( organising my broad band account).. I reckon we will be moving our ancient rigs into the retirment homes by the time the grandchildren of the current UBI developers finish the new GR..........still better late than never.
  13. Hey!....there it is..... he gets a reply at last!... .. not forgotten after all...... Hi Mac, will see you once I get this beast assembled..just waiting on my RAM being shipped now.........
  14. Just checking in to say hello..........good to see some of the old' heads are still around. I can't believe GR2 has been cancelled ( yes I have been living under a rock......). Been away working and training, nearly finished the new rig, 64 bit K8N Neo, with a 6600 GT and 1 G of RAM. I was all geared up getting my rig completion date ready for GR2 being released, then I log on yestereday only to find those b******s have cancelled iT!. Those guys at UBI really do treat us like second rate customers.They need a good slap, if you ask me. Anyway......grumble...grumble..............looks like I got lots of time to tweak my system performance before GR3 is out ( I hear its due out to coincide with the first Martian landings....). Hi to all those who know me.........See you all on the battlefield soon enough...... . Storm.
  15. Yeah, that's what I figured .........but I wondered if they came made for one configuration only......I think I'll flip it around after all.
  16. I was toying with going with a 939 socket Asus Mobo, the AV8 to precise and a AMD 64 bit 939. Do you guys reckon there is any major difference or advantage when it comes to the various 64 bit socket types....?
  17. When it comes to exhaust and intake fans obviously the orientation will decide which way the air blows......are most fans reversible or are they marked as intake or exhaust?
  18. Food for thought there gentleman........once again many thanks I will be looking online whilst keeping your advice in mind...... .The 6600 GT looks very tasty I have to say, although I do have a month or so before actually buying so maybe I iwll keep my eye on the X800XL and 6800GT. Thanks guys.....
  19. I have about $200 - $270 ( U.S ) to shell out..........so you guys have any suggestions or experiences that would help.?.........my old GF4Ti is now in my old mans machine so I need a replacment for my new Rig.......I was looking at the 9600XT or even an 9800 xt if I can wait a month or two.....
  20. or how about......."Oi..!.you lot..........." A la cockney geezer style.........
  21. Like Chems and Sleeper, I also used to play Rogue Spear and GR on dial up. Alot of GR on dial up..........as Sart will verify. It was always sweet with a few players but on a bad night or on a busy map with more than 3..........forget it. Still very good for little 2 man missions and some recon stuff.way better than Rogue spear thats for sure. I went through pain at the Ubi rooms.*yak yak......yech....*.........pardon me, I still wince when I even think of playing at ubi.com.
  22. Tsk tsk.........Tyovan.is that all you were after?.....you rouge........
  23. What's all this about an old timers forum..? Where's my reading glasses.....?...........................*dammit*........'ah ...blast.....Ive dropped my zimmer'............ . Is it time for my feed yet........?...... ..Im sleepy after all that excitment...'zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........'
  24. I'll be around til Rock shuts it down for good, made to many great friends to just turn my back and walk away. I believe that a good portion of the membership here also feels somewhat the same as I do. ← Roger that..........
