    Left 4 Dead, offline, LAN co-op

    Yeah we did what Frozen said to do as well. All in all a pain in the ass just to play some simple multiplayer. Hopefully this will be fixed and so forth in the retail game thats coming in a few weeks. You would have thought BETA testers of the PC game would have been voicing alot of the...

    Left 4 Dead, offline, LAN co-op

    We figured it out. We basically have to run a dedicated server, then both connect to it via the openserverbrowser command. Once opened we had to type "connect number) to connect to the server he set up. We are now in co-op, offline, LAN mode

    Left 4 Dead, offline, LAN co-op

    Normally my co-worker and I play a ton of multiplayer/co-op steam games here at work on our laptops. We don't have the ability to online with Steam but it has never been a problem before as we are basicallly connected via a LAN and use Offline mode. We both grabbed the Left 4 Dead demo today...

    ATi 4870 & WotLK

    The dynamic shadows were in effect before when I was on Test and had 0 issues. They clearly did something either to the shadows or what not to mess everyone up.

    ATi 4870 & WotLK

    8.10 Beta Catalyst Drivers

    Installed this morning. Crysis, WoW, CoD4 all play "smoother" CoD and Crysis even went up in fps. Manual fan control is nice as well. Tabbing out of games and back to desktop is also quicker for me now. On the 8.9betas and 8.9 official it would lag and stutter a bit while switching.

    HD 4870 1GB (DDR5) H.Q.

    I had the Visiontek 4870 512MB card and replaced it with a HIS 4870 1GB card. Games are noticably "smoother" and the HIS card is actually quieter then the Visiontek.

    HIS IceQ 4870

    Anyone know if HIS has announced or has plans to release a 4870 IceQ version of their ATi card? I have the IceQ3 3870 and it is amazingly more quiet and cooler the the normal 3870. Google search didn't really come up with anything.

    Why dont people use vsync?

    I've always left V-Sync on. Tearing in games is one of the most annoying things ever for me.
