  1. I loved GR1 and island thunder for Xbox, loved it, I really like GR2 as well, though it wasnt quite as good. I kinda gave up on the console version when GRAW hit and went to the pc version and I was happy I did at the time. I just hate when devs make games watered down, hated the diamond icons on screen showing u an enemy, and alot of the dumb ui tweaks made to make the game easier. ANYWAY, i was playing gr2 in my 360 today and understandably found no one online. But i was wondering were there game modes in GRAW 1 and 2 that made it like a real tactical shooter, where it was a hard hitting fps? I went pc route and while it was good, the damn game killed my powerful pc so I didnt play much. Prolly played through campaign but barely. Anyway if I purchase GRAW2 for 360 is it like a genuine GR experience, like how there is a hardcore mode on COD4? Or is it all halo friendly servers? Also since im on the topic, anyone know if people still play GR1 on xbox/360? I would think it was more likely cause of GR1 being better than GR1. Thanks hope GR4 is going to be great, cant wait to get back into this type of game.
  2. My two major beefs with demo 1. The lack of silent moving. I dislike how its very hard to move anywhere in the game silently. Walking upright, fast crouching, and running should be noisy, especially running. I wish there was a crouch that made little noise, less than it currently does, and I wish crawling, or prone was silent. when I crouch and go normal speed its somewhat loud, in my footsteps it sounds like im walking through wet grass, or puddles. I dont know I was hoping ghosts could be gohsts. ALl you need to do is get to a choke point, hunker down until you here the squishsquish of footprints. Again i understand the walking and running and fast crouch, normal crouch is slow so it should be pretty near silent. 2. Apart from the easy spawn camping the demo has is the nade launchers. playing tonite a number of round leaders would have 45 kills with the next best at like 10, because theyd get close to the spawn and just shoot a nadelauncher, killing 2-5 people at a shot., also if i find a guy in mid map and it turns into a dual i will lose cause he doesnt even need to aim much and im dead. very rarely will he overshoot or undershoot. I dont see how only giving one nade to a guy at spawn makes much sense but it is better than having a guy kill 10 guys in 2 shots, (outside figure). its bad enough someguy marches into a spawn its another if hes carrying nade launchers. nades are ok obviously cause if i trogh a nade it takes time to wind up the arm and the through threw the air takes a sec or two plenty of defense time. also then he has to switch back to a gun. nades should be given to more kits too, they are far farer. [Merged with the existing feedback thread]
  3. man i feel like I posted this somewhere, cause I came here to post it here too. yes this is really a show stopper for me, you dont even need to get to choke points only 50 feet from spawns and witha sniper rifle you can see the exits to spawn points and just sit there and nail away. how this is a good thing i dont know. also it gets the game feeling VERY repetitive, all you do is exit spawn, go to choke point, fight. Its not like it should be where you exit spawn, find a spot and look all around, for many diff avenues of enemies. Ironically I believe the real problem with the game is that the maps are too small, if the demo map is normal/ because its easy to run into poeple, remember the original GR those maps could be big, open but still saw alot of action. The demo map sucks because its a valley, snipers can just sit on the hill sides and look for movemtn and fire down. if it was flatter snipers wouldnt have it so easy. After saying this the map does a great job on obstructing views throughout, but it will be great to play another map for once. As it stands right now I think alot of people see this as a deal breaker. Id buy this game for MP the single player in GRAW1 i felt was not very rewarding. If the MP is sorta ok i will wait till i get this one on sale, and continue playing GR1.
  4. In my add/remove software, i noticed I have a listing for GRAW, at 3.66gigs, but I also have a list called graw patch 1.20 and its listed at 4.065 Gigs, do I need both, and if so which, i was thinking the patch one is really the game patched to 1.20, and the other is an older out dated list. if i uninstall the patch through this way will it ruin the game?
  5. so not many people are even playing Graw, I thought it was a semi big hit. course it is on this site as it should be so maybe im not seeing it clear.
  6. I was going to play my first Multi game yesterday but for some reason there were prolly less than 20 servers with any substantial amount of people in them. Also I selected a server and before loading it kicked me out saying that i didnt have the correct files. (as if I had an un updated game, like in other games) However I have 1.20 downloaded and installed. Please advise. THanks.
  7. it all depends on the program/game, if it is multi threaded or not, most arent however. But I think that if you have two hefty progs working at once the pc will know enough to split the work on two cores, one prog on a core. so for instance its alot cleaner burning a DVD while editing video all at once with no slow down. But as for games Im not sure. It certainly wont make u run faster, as in 10mph instead of 5mph, it may tho help the graphics and AI, maybe.
  8. I had beaten lvl 6 and started 7, went to play after patching and i had to do check point 9 overagain. where I have to fight the 2 enemy tanks with mine. Well the first tuime i did it it was simple, my tanks destroyed the enemy fast. Now 6 tries later i cant get anywhere. my tnaks may attack, but usually only once, then they return to looking straight. and their movements are very low intelligent. i dont know, is there anywya to skip lvl 6 since i alreadt won it? Or is there a prob with 1.10 with tanks.?
  9. not trying to push anyone to buy something, but after this new cooler, the Accelero X1 im getting tops at 54degrees Celcius, thats like 30 below a normal temp for this card. Its so cool. will try oc'ing it maybe. but def have ur case clean too.
  10. Ok here is real results. I bought a Accelero X1 from Newegg.com http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16835186001 for about 30 bucks, ordered thurs, got monday. Went looking namely came across a nice GPU test from madshrimps as seen here http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=getarticle&articID=405 and from what I read the Accelero came out on tops and 15 bucks less than the Zalman, also i didnt get the NV silencer(my orig choice) when i read that some cards mems werent touching the heatspreaders correctly. But orig my games had run fine, the past two weeks however saw my pc games cut off and a popup from nvidias control panel exclaiming my gpu had reached 118 or so degrees Centigrade, yes thats right. so needless to say until tonite i havent played much GRAW lately. So now it runs at 40degrees at idle, now typing, and when playing a game it doesnt break over 55degrees C, yes a raise in only 10-20 degrees tops. Not bad from the heat i sued to get. Installation was a breeze, it was harder removing the orig cooling than installing the new stuff. And I can say my game is running better than ever, i honestly feel its running smoother. the Zalman, 7700 or 9900 Ithink thats their names, are decent too. Might be a cheap upgrade for a good bit of better gaming. Oh the old heatsink and fan was really dusty, I should have blown it out better before trying this out, but I dont think it was at fault because it had always been dusty. BUT try dusting first.
  11. thats really weird because my card gets to 120, and i get a popup saying its overheating. wow, maybe it is the game. but i dont think so cause i tried GR1 and a couple of other games and it still overheated. also just idling its 82 degrees. i have a PNY 6800GT 256 AGP and i just ordered a Accelero X1 and will be installing it tomorrow when i get it. now im worried its the game. but why would it overheat with GR1??? well ill keep u posted.
  12. they probably played, reviewed it, on a tip top system. as they should. so alot of the probs I and others are having probably arent showing up/
  13. its out tomorrow just kidding, im hoping thio its what was promised it was.
  14. my crosscom proc is already false, no never mind i looked at it wrong, will try it out now does this change the color of it when u full screen it or the small screen. also is there any way to change the black and white for color, or to take out the interpolation look???
  15. deff keeping it, even if it runs rough on my pc, love it still.
  16. ill post what worked for me, in ur Nvidia control panel u need to take the option called max frames to render ahead to 0 instead of the default 3, this seems to help alot, not completly but a good amount. you need coolbits or nvtweak which u can get at like majorgeeks.com and it uder an hidden part of the control panel, which either of thos progs open up for you. also turning down the mouse sens, not the 3d sens, but the otherone, that helps a bit too. still i have that slippery feeing and it is a pain in my butt. but hope this all helps/
  17. I was just wondering if it is rather small like the charting ingame says id use it. but alot of games show the silencer really cutting into power and somewhat with aim. A
  18. ya the best way to upgrade is mem, its cheaper than everything else (usually) and it often helps quite abit. if this game is very heavy on the GPU well unless they fix it then i wont be playing much after i beat it. its a chore to play now as it is and its all new to me.
  19. man i feel ur pain, i have a 6800gt 256 too, wonderful card, but i have a slower cpu. an AMD 2500+ Barton, and 1gb of 333ddr, I dont play it the high like id love too, hell even on low i get down to the teens on oocassion but i never go below that. so i can say its deff not game. you said u switched out ur ram from ur old Computer, well what speeds were those, i mean if they were old DDR with like a 2100 speed or lower technically ur processors front side bus speed would go from the 3200 to what ever they are. this would deff hurt. also maybe they are bad maybe u replaced them slightly wrong. first dl a memory tester from like Majorgeeks.com, or somewhere let it run like 5 times, see if has alot of errors. also just try taking them out and then putting them back in to see if they werent seated wrong. i dont think its anything else unless u had some driver issue. did u use something like Driver Cleaner to remove ur old vid drivers? try that. also there is a way to disable sound in one of the .XML files (or somewhere) have a go with it disabled that would pretty much rule out the sound card. otherwise try reinstalling the game. but my money is on a mem issue or a driver, issue. remember try the mem test, and check the old mem speed. and look for driver updates for the sound card too. i just cant wait till the day i get a pc that can play this thing at like 40FPS so i feel ur pain.
  20. im kind of worried how people think GRAW looks better than Lost Coast, im a big GR fan but im not blinded by it. That LC map is not small, and the water alone in LC outperforms any factor in GRAW, gameplay or not. Comparing the actuall games is stoopid because they are very diff.
  21. dont have dual channel on the mobo, do i have to have special ddr sticks to use dual channel or are all ddr capable with the correct mobo??? i might buy another gig for this game, and i just bought an extra 512 for bf2 and then i realized how bad the game was after the gfx were fixed.
  22. Can anyone tell me if I get an audigy SE from newegg for like 28 bucks will this take alot of headroom off the pc, or the mobo anyway and put it on the sound card? or is it a small amount.
  23. CPU: Athlon XP 2500+ GPU: 6800 GT RAM: 1GiG DDR2700 SND: onboard, nforce 19" LCD Drivers: 84.56 Settings: Resolution: 1024x9?? Texture Quality: Med Texture Filtering: 4xAF Effects: Med Dynamic Shadows: Off Dynamic Lighting: Off Post Effects: Low Eax: Off, i think i use gen software, or hardware Audio: Med Tweaks: Frames to Render ahead: 0 Peak Frames: 40 fps Avg Frames: 15-27 fps Low Frames: sub 15 fps i dont know i really dig the game but man if this is sinking current gen high class cards with top o the line cpus i dont know what to expect. i dont know whats the point of HDR, is it bad implementation, that lost coast demo, from HL2 i get like 40+ fps and that makes Graw look like GR1
