Recruit - 2nd Class (3/13)



  1. Joined the Discord. I'll try to check in now and again. Haven't played Original Ghost Recon in probably 15 years...would love to get in some games!
  2. Man, sure is tough to get a good MP game going. A few people here and there on GameRanger, but overall pretty sparse.
  3. Guys.....what is going on? Is this thread/site/dream still alive? I just reinstalled this game and am looking for some Multiplayer matches. I would be happy to have my machine host during the day while I'm at the office (USA time). I played this game for hours upon hours. WDA (Walking Dead Army) clan. I remember going up against AOD, CDN, and many others. No active games in GameRanger right now. Shall we just set a recurring day/time to host a game on GameRanger?
  4. So what online services are there for GR? I downloaded GameRanger and don't see any active games. Does the original UBI service that came with GR still work/active? I just reinstalled this puppy and am anxious for some epic MP battles!
  5. Got it working! Thanks. I had to set compatibility mode to start the game in 640x480 resolution. Works great.
  6. Alright fellas. I'm trying to get GR installed on my Windows 8.1 PC. All three disks (GR, DS, IT) installed properly. The game launched when it was just GR. Then after installing DS and IT the game crashes shortly after launch. I get the "ghost recon" logo screen, I see it pop up in task manager, then it crashes. I've tried running as administrator and also compatibility mode to XP. Still no luck. How have others got it working on W8?
  7. But it is possible to get it installed and working on Windows 8, correct? I'm on a modern W8 PC (I actually like W8) and want to try OGR (Original GR) a try again. Been years, but far and away the best PC game I've ever played. I'll give it a go and report back. PS...glad to be back, first post in many years, glad my log-in credentials still worked.
  8. Wow, sorry, but as a die-hard fan of [GR] I just found my chin dropped when viewing that video. If the game looks like that I think I'll pass on the Ghost Recon series for the first time ever. I don't need shoulder-mounted rockets, cloaking devices, and guns that sound like a star wars fight scene. There are other games to go for that. Give me current realism and tactical play and I'm all about it. Seems like GR series is getting further and furhter from it's roots, and thus further and further from most of the old school guys that frequent this forum. Cheerio,
  9. Thanks for the suggestion Colin. I did confirm that IT is installed in the correct directory, and still no luck. I'll try a few more things and if I find a solution I will post it here. Thanks.
  10. So GRAW2 is dead and I'm sick of COD4 and I made the EXCELLENT decision to reinstall [GR]. Man, I got excited just putting the discs back in. I installed the Original, tested it, and it worked I installed Desert Siege, tested it, and it worked I installed Island Thunder, tested it, and NO WORKY. It acts like it's loading, goes to a black screen, then just seems to crash back to the desktop. Damn. I installed the final official 1.4 patch, and still no luck. I completely uninstalled and tried again with the same results. I'm running an Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and 32-bit Vista Ultimate. Weird that GR and DS would work but once moving to IT is when I experienced the problems. Anyone have any idea? I'd love to get this working. TYIA, Slayer
  11. Why does anyone care about a patch anymore? This game's been 6 feet under for months. And I'm one of the biggest GR-PC fans there is - tough for me to admit, but let's face the music, give UBI the finger, and move on to Blackfoot.
  12. Tie Fighter - had several expansions. Wing Commander. Several sequals. And I agree about those two as well. Classics. Tie Fighter is ONE OF THE BEST games ever! Totally agree with Suicide and Rabbi - awesome game. Countless hours of fun with that one growing up. Favoriate game ever is [GR] - best FPS ever, period, just like Rabbi said. It got me thru college.
  13. That's really too bad. If all [GR] maps were released in an official GR:AW2 patch, this game would catch on like wild fire. All the old clans would come back and play constantly, myself included, and those of us that went to COD4 because everything else in the market sucks would dust off the ole' GR:AW2 discs and have ourselves a grand ole party!
