Recruit - 2nd Class (3/13)



  1. TSO will do it... even if you're not on teamspeak. http://www.teamspeakoverlay.com/
  2. Hmm... I suppose the fact that GRAW is 32-bit would be the main problem. I was, BTW, refering to 64bit non dual core. I realize that I should get a better graphics card, but I just got this 6800LE recently... I won't be upgrading for another year, at least.
  3. Hello! I am the proud owner of an AMD 3000+. I also am the sad owner of Windows XP Home. My question goes out to anyone who has Windows XP Home and XP64 dual boot. Does the 64-bit make a difference? Does it run better? This game is very CPU dependant, does an OS optimized for it help? I know it would not make a big difference on overall framerates, but in a firefight, does your framerate go down at all?
  4. *tries to actually be a little helpful* Yeah, Turtle Beach is good for some things.. like music. But when it comes to gaming you really can't beat Creative. If you're looking for something cheap but REALLY nice. I'd reccomend you get an original Audigy (like an MP3, or a gamer) for $30 on Ebay, and softmod it to an Audigy 4. http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/show...ad.php?t=212093
  5. I'm sorry, but that's hysterical.
  6. That seems kind of silly. If you have your speakers/headphones plugged into that card and can hear, it's obviously using that card. Also, if your sound quality settings go to high, than you know it's figured out your card. If you used onboard it would only go to low/medium.
  7. Are you looking for something special? I used to have an Audigy SE, I got the same thing. I think the SE and the Value run on the same chipset...
  8. It's a BBQ I'm a bit inspired since it's time for my annual BBQ-LAN-party next month BBQ and LAN gaming... not much better than that. Oh, and GRIN, you don't have to worry about fixing this problem. I haven't even beaten mission one yet. The AI keeps out-smarting me. I"m almost tempted to go from Normal to Easy. Never give up! Never Surrender!
  9. I finally caved and bought a mouse to replace my "Marble Mouse" 2-button trackball. I got a Razer Diamondback on clearance locally. It pwnz. Though, I still miss my marble mouse.
  10. Yeah, that's not (as far as I know) an official list. IT probably should be edited as 5xxx series cards aren't supported.
  11. Not that I am aware. I use a trackball with no scroll wheel, too. I'm hoping when they release a patch they'll solve this silly issue. I'd love to be able to set each weapon to an individual key.
  12. Anyone know how to play this without a mouse wheel? <crying>I wanna blow stuff up!! </crying>
  13. One of the things you have to understand is that the screenshots do not do the lighting systems justice. The HDR lighting in this game is without a doubt the most impressive I have ever seen. As you walk around the reflection of the sun moves appropriately. Just about every (if not every) object in the game is mapped. Each object has it's own reflectability property. The road reflects light differently from the side-walk and so forth. It's incredible. It also makes every video card on the market gasp for air. This makes sense. The [Ghost Recon] is still being played, and while the graphics aren't the best ever, they still look decent (compare to the popular, America's Army, and others). This game was designed to last for a very long time. It might not play all that well right now. But next Summer it won't be obsolete. Next Summer we will still be realizing how incredible this game looks on our Nvidia 8600GT (or whatever). The game will last. I don't know if that's why GRiN did it, but it's a possible explanation...
  14. Kill every system process you can. You don't even need 20 of them. Just go through and kill as many as you can. Kill Explorer, even. Then use task manager with "New Task" to start GRAW, Teamspeak, and TSO if you need to. I'm running an AMD 3000+ with 1.5GB of RAM and (Single Player, anyway...) I don't have this problem. The only ones you don't want to kill are svchost, and the ones you can't kill. I made an image of what's needed to run your system. The items in black are items I did not kill (as I am not currently am not playing GRAW and like my music while working on things and posting..) but you should kill before playing. The items in red are ones the you SHOULD NOT (or cannot) kill. Feel free to experiment. There may be some things that you should not kill, the worst that can happen is you have to restart your computer. The best that can happen is TS works! EDIT: hmm... it could be soundcard related... I don't know. I have an AC'97, though, and I don't have any problems.
  15. Just picked up my copy at EB today. Pretty sweet... I need a mouse with a wheel now.
