Hated GRIN but now?


Recommended Posts

When I first bought this game I hated GRIN because I went straight to MP COOP & crashed & went back & the guy hosting quit cause he was bored. Then I went & played the SP on normal & got so into the game my wife was ###### (she actually bought it for me cause she saw how much fun I was having with my bud from OHIO that i don't get to see all the time with GR!). I cursed GRIN on MP & my wife said why not try the SP game & stop whining. Well I have to say this is the coolest, hardest game I ever played. I did have to fight with my graphics card to finally get the crashing to stop (thanks to NOQUATER)<-----he rocks....very helpfull member of the comunity. Now I love GRIN & Hope they do a Rainbow 6 game. I have read posts from giveruppers & I just feel sorry for these ppl. I have seen GRIN in here answereing questions & played in servers with them....They evidendtly love their baby(GRAW). All i am saying.......is give GRIN a chance....sing it with me now......All i am saying.......is give GRIN a chance. :g_withgrin:

I love HH.

I do miss DOM though - I thought the game mode was great. I've tried playing TDM recently (giving it nearly 3 hours of playtime) and I find it to be rather lax. There just simply isn't enough action - and you find people that somehow run all the way across the map without seeing anyone, only to kill you two feet off your spawn (then you kill them because you have spawn protection...)

TDM just gets lame. I think it'll be alot better for match play, but when it comes to pubs....

DOM was great because the Zones gave purpose, and you could get a general idea of where people were - therefore you had more encounters and things didn't "Slack" like they do in TDM. I like HH for the same reason - the hill gives people a purpose, and the small maps give many encounters.

K... that was kinda OT

I am still sour about GRIN. With the retail version of the game, Widescreen worked flawlessly. Since it's been patched (I belive 1.16 started it) widescreen has no longer worked. That has made me REALLY sour about the situation. I did read (finally, took two months though...) that they acknowledged the issue though, which is a plus.

I am wondering - and I tried to create a post about it, but it never went through - if it is related to a specific type of monitor? I know myself and two others who have Dell monitors, all having the "Skew" problem... But I've heard/read of quite a few people who don't seem to be having this same problem. A couple of them have mentioned a differnt brand of monitor... So I am wondering if it is monitor related? (Re: Still, it worked before the patches, so something DID change) If it's not monitor related - what is differnt in their settings than mine? (Or are their eyes just not catching the skew like mine do?)

I have tried editing the XML's to "Force" it, an I have tried setting the aspect to auto, and I have tried setting it's numerical value. Nothing seems to work.

Snoopy,

As posted in another thread, we have a fix for that bug lined up for the next patch. It's a bug in how dead bodies are removed from the game.

Kevman,

thanks. :)

Dead bodies are causing an error in the FoV/Aspect ratio?

Wow, that's odd. Is it when a body is removed while in the players view, or when the players body itself is removed, or?

I can honestly say I havn't noticed it TOO much latly due to playing HH more often (re: dying faster w/smaller map)

Hated GRiN in May.

Still hate GRiN.

But I hate Ubi more, for taking what I loved and wrecking it. I'm sure the GRiN boys are talented coders, etc, but I have to think they were told what to deliver, and that would only come from one source.... U-BI-my_source_for_more_revenue_sucka.

Joseph_Q: there was this older Polish Black&White film my ex-wife made me watch once that was pretty funny. The story goes like this: two dudes wake up in a post-apocalyptic world where there are only WOMEN left, which makes them the only two MEN. Hilarity ensues.

I didn't get a lot of the meat and potatoes of the story, as my Polish language skillz just weren't (and now again AREN'T) all that. Know the film I mean? If so, what's the title and how can I get a copy on DVD? Thanks...
