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...
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 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:(port number) to connect to the server he set up.
We are now in co-op, offline, LAN mode
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...
Something is wrong after a recent patch that they need to fix. I was running 60fps (vsync, 1920x1200 4aa, all settings maxxed) before a recent patch. After the patch using the same settings my FPS were around 13-14. Slidding the shadow bar to low gave me back the 60fps basically.
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.
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.
So our Nvidia brethren are able to force AA in Bioshock. Any thoughts on when we'll see such ability from our ATI cards?
The game of course is totally playable, but after having AA enabled in every game I play for many years now, not having AA makes the game looks rough.
I have a SN25P running a FX-57 and a newly installed X1900XTX. Was a little worried if the system would be stable with such a beast of a video card in it, but low and behold it's been about 1+ week and the system is rock solid.
Just wondering if anyone had some links for stands that would hold 2 2005fpw's. Atm my dual 2005fpw's are each using the oem stands that came with the monitors. Just think it would probably look cleaner with one stand holding both monitors.
nm, found Ergotron DS100
I have an SN25P (basically the amd ver. of the shuttle series) and have had no problems with a x1900xtx.
I know it's not exactly what you wanted to know but it gives you an idea of what these shuttles can handle.
I think the OP is asking for a way to hook up 2-3 DVI inputs into a single monitors dvi input and have a selector to choose which is displayed on screen.
something like this http://sewelldirect.com/PS2KVMSwitchDVI2Port.asp I think.
In case anyone is wondering, I slapped the X800XL card I bought into my SS51G and its been working fine. The SS51G only has a 200w PSU and atm the system contains a P4 3.0, 1Gb Ram, 80Gb drive, 320Gb drive, dvd-rom, and my hauppauge 150MCE card.
Gotta love Shuttles
If you can't go duel widescreens I'd say go with a 20" or a 24" widescreen,I personally have 2 2005fpw's. If I'm PC gaming on the main one, the secondary is either showing me Teamspeak/MP3 player/Web Pages or my 360. I also have the second screen hooked up to my Media Center so I can watch...
The x800 series only takes up one slot. ATI's x850 pro takes up two slots though some 3rd party companies made single slot x850 pro's.
That link above is a good deal for the x800xl, I just bought one to replace my 9800pro.
People most likely pick the brand they have had the most luck with. I know I had an Nvidia card, then switched to a 9800pro ages ago. Since then I've only bought ATI cards because the cards have run perfect for me and I like the brand.
But I'm sure someone is just opposite of me, they had ATI...
They want you to take a picture of the screen with a camera, not with a screenshot of whats on your monitor. As it stands right now looking at those pics they look fine to me.
Your taking a picture of whats on your monitor, thats not going to show any issues with what you are seeing when you...
