Recruit - 3rd Class

Recruit - 3rd Class (2/13)



  1. Would you be so kind as to explain to us unfamiliar with 3DSM, the exact process in which one would go about importing the characters, and adjusting there poses? Thanks! Very nice renders by the way.
  2. Hey guys, Been away a while not too up to date with the latest news on Ghost Recon or Ghost Recon 2 for that matter. Let me cut to the chase, has there been anything worth reading/viewing in relation to Ghost Recon 2? Concept Art? Screenshots? Press releases? I have been having a blast playing Raven Shield, and Ghost Recon (as it is right now) doesn't have much of an atmosphere. America's Army Operations is fun but it has alot of room for improvement. I'm hoping for a Ghost Recon 2 on the Unreal Engine just quietly. Anyways, any help will be appreciated. Cheers.
  3. I was wondering how this was going. Glad to see everything is coming along nicely Baja.
  4. I believe the MP demo's are like public beta's. They give the public the opportunity to get a taste of what the final version will be like, all while allowing the producers/makers of the game to get some well needed feedback/bug reports from the community. Just take RvS for example, if they hadn't released the public MP demo, the gameplay probably wouldn't have been changed, and the final version may very well have been like v1.0 (but hopefully without the bugs). The community (the small minority I feel) made their voices heard and eventually got the reticle/speed system changed in the first patch released (v1.1). I personally haven't tried vietcong or DF:BHD, but I briefly viewed DF:BHD at a friends house and it looks rather interesting. Raven Shield I am a big fan of (probably more so in v1.0), but it's still a great game and I'm sure I'll enjoy the full version.
  5. I love renders. What's Project IGI like anyways? I have never played the original, although the new one sounds ok. Opinions?
  6. Or you could just keep all your spam for people to visit your boards in one thread...
  7. Very much so. Thank you. Exactly, I am. I am not referring to you doing hosting, but the webhost you deal throw. The most common form of hosting done by sites is throw reseller programs, which means that your clients would be hosted by the same one you are - meaning there is a good chance that they could also experience random downtime (such as this site has a few times). Obviously, if you are going to create your own server boxes and buy bandwidth from an ISP, that would be a different story (and one I wasn't taking into account). For the record, I am familiar with the phrase/cliché. The reason I said that not many people would put their eggs in different baskets, is because obviously, with webhosting, you don't want to have about 10 different accounts all with different companies/businesses - it makes for alot more hassle. You make out is if I don't appreciate the site and his hard work. Look, the reason I made the post was to make Rocky think carefully about hosting before he did it. It was a suggestion, and only a suggestion... nothing else. I'm sure if everyday contained 48 hours he would be able to manage it, because I know he works hard at what he does. Fact of the matter is though, there is only 24 hours, he has this site, AGR-S, and I am assuming real life matters to deal with. Creating another project would only further reduce the time he has to do the other things. I am not trying ot be a dictator of Rocky's life, and time schedule, I tried to give some advice - which obviously wasn't seen that way (or taken that way).
  8. A very well written post 300, thank you. Even though I am not a US resident, but from what I see/read/hear this is the exact impression I get of George Bush.
  9. Unsure how me visiting the paypal link has anything to do with hosting? Please explain. Only relation I see here is money, I don't want the hosting, why tell this to me for? There's no need for that Rocky, it was a suggestion, if you want more complications than by all means try it. For a person who claims to have little spare time due to maintaining this website, I would assume adding another big (or bigger) feature would only cut down on this even further, but hey, it's your decision and my post was simply a suggestion - take it for what it's worth. A new server? Wow! I am impressed. Your history of downtime actually is relevant considering we are talking about hosting, and you doing the hosting for others (which of course could be important information for anyone mayeb considering it). My assumption was that it would be through GR.net - usually one person will not place his eggs in different baskets (meaning you would deal through the same webhost rather than picking another). Your history of webhosting suggests they/it cannot handle the workload associated with the site - maybe this host is the same maybe not. If you're talking simply about managing sites through a reseller program, sure, you can do that, I can do that even... Would I want to? Depends how much stress I want to put on the box hosting the site(s). As it should be... just a shame all the downtime missed, adds up to the server being down a day, or a few days. A few minutes downtime daily would be a much better solution. By the way, no, the above reference was not to the "hack attack". Sorry to disappoint you but by this site being up or down makes no difference to how I go about my daily life (apart from maybe saving me a few minutes when I check the boards). I like the site but it's not going to be a major dilema. Me referring to the site downtime was simply for the benefit of people considering hosting (if that becomes an option). Ideas may sound great, but it's harder putting those ideas into action. Like I said in my last post, it was a suggestion, was not meant to be taken to heart, or be the basis of your decision. I say take it for what its worth, because obviously it wouldn't mean much (obviously in your case) as it might to someone else.
  10. Moral to the story -- You get what you pay for. Rocky, you have had a history of downtime with this site. Unless you have an extremely large amount of bandwidth, an extremely fast and reliable server, and enough free time to manage accounts and troubleshoot for people, than you are WAY in over your head... this is unless you are planning to get them next to nothing in features and resources. Just my opinion of course, and it isn't intended as an anti-hype post.
  11. I really don't understand why people are so worried about other people viewing their source and what not - encryptors are a waste of time and just cause alot more trouble than they are worth (also worth mention is that the encryption is very easily decrypted by using a similar program/method). Someone who knows how to turn on their computer could probably work out how to view source, steal images, etc. One of the more annoying things I always see is the no-right-click script which is easy enough to overcome anyhow (and once again, offers no real solution to the problem). I think time spent on making encryptors or compressors or protection scripts would be better spent on creating a program that is able to track who saves your pictures, views your source, etc. That way, you can see who is taking your stuff, rather than annoying the people that have no interest in doing so.
  12. You stole my link! You ######!
  13. I think it's time I adopt a kid... Or just rent him for shopping nights
