  1. I woke up at 4:00 AM to stand in line to pick up this exact monitor! It's pretty sweet, eh? I've been on cloud nine playing GRAW and Flight Sim X these last few days!
  2. Welcome. I am getting into simming; although, less combat and more passenger routes.
  3. i've been enjoying it for a little vile now, when time premits me, and also started flying with vatsim. having online atc is nice ps. : big flyin in northern norway this weekend btw ) not sure if i'll amke it though, since i've got the house filled with guests :\ have a nice weekend though, and have a safe flight I thought about attending the Fly-In but then decided against it as I have only flown on VATSIM once so far. I'm pretty sure the ATC wouldn't be too happy with my having to make an emergency landing!
  4. 1st try, 57 WPM...4 errors...
  5. Open your background image in Photoshop (i.e. the bike). Then add a new layer on top of that. Add a layer mask to it. Then begin to paint on that mask to reveal the layer below (unmasking it). It looks like they used some funky sort of brush to get the jagged edges. Photoshop comes with quite a few brushes to choose from and a quick Google search will reveal numerous more free brushes that you could download and use.

    The Xbox 360 sucks

    I was downright close to purchasing a 360, yet never did. My normal telly and the the cost in getting the console, a few games, and Xbox Live subscription was a bit more than I wanted to spend. I'm glad I didn't. I picked up a new PC game instead...and gaming life is all good. Consoles are just not for me. Not when I've spent the money to upgrade my computer to a pretty decent rig. I do still park myself in front of a 360 when I visit a BestBuy though. I got to play GRAW for about 45 minutes. Was quite fun, but different from the PC version. Took about 44 minutes to get used to...
  7. I have FSX and have really been enjoying it. I don't have much history with flight sims but I'm slowly picking up the pace of flying technique. The full-service airports are freakin' cool too...
  8. I figured they'd be playing [GR] Coop with objectives....
  9. hey, ill be going to the release party next week, so ill make sure to send your regards sorry I cant give you any more info on the patch, not my info to give out im afraid. "... the patch" At least we at least know for sure there was/is a patch!
  10. I downloaded it a few days ago...and my wife has similar thoughts. "Black and Orange? That was SOOO last week!"
  11. Thanks for your thoughts.... Love the song. Got a score of 870 on the first try...
  12. Which is a game that I have found myself nearly addicted to since I picked it up this last weekend...
  13. I've been a loyal GRIN fan and GRAW fun, and still am, though my interest is waning a bit. The disconnects (whether from SADS or GameSpy) are getting old, the numbers of online players seem to be dwindling with the passing of each week, and bugs that were in the Beta release of the last patch never were fixed...not to mention new ones that seemingly have popped up since then. I sit here a bit frustrated...
  14. I treated myself to a new genre of PC game this weekend with my purchase of Microsoft's Flight Simulator X and a Saitek X52 throttle and joystick combo. I'm really liking it so far. Having never been a flight simmer before, it is a bit complex to get used to...all the details needed to do it correctly...but hey it's tons of fun!
  15. I've sent a PM out to a few GRIN guys attempting to get some more info on this "patch" that was alluded to. I've not heard back from them, nor have I seen them post about it in quite some time...
  16. Very cool mate! Congrats on finishing your map! Should be hosted over at the ToW server shortly!
  17. A friend of mine invited me over to his place to give him a hand in building a new computer from ground up for him. He had this fan also. I can't imagine having the room to install it without first taking out the mobo...It's frickin' huge!
  18. We hope to have the ToW server updated soon also for these newest maps...
  19. I've played GR since the beginning. Joined GR.NET a mere 5 months after you did. Played for a few different squads in that time. I was the CO of a squad of fellow GR series gamers while in college. We played TDM on a few different ladders but never did real well. College guys are hard to pin down for match times! Why you ask? I asked because I think alot of folks, (Thinking you weren't an old school GR fan) want old GR features are necessary for the success for GRAW. that's all. I would be the first to say that GRAW isn't exactly like GR 1 and that some elements found in GR that are missing in GRAW would have made the game a great deal better. BUT, I still find GRAW to be the game that brings me back to it nearly every night. I am an old school GR fan...still have it installed and run through some of the new mods that have been released, but I find GRAW to be an acceptable, fun new GR.
  20. I disagree - Ravenshield was great fun as an MP as well as SP I'll second that. RVS hours of fun. While we're listing redstorm games (even though RVS isn't one...) that 'Ghost Recon' shooter they put out a few years ago was pretty good. I too was surprised that no one mentioned "that" one...
  21. I still have a few extensions/plug-ins not working with 2.0. But I love it thus far. All the the major ones have been updated (Gmail notifier, Sage, Greasemonkey, FoxyTunes, etc.). Only the minor ones are yet be updated. Don't let that hold you back Cpt.Led...
