I remember playing Pong and Hangman way back in the day. Played the hell out of Gauntlet and Galaga in the arcades. Used to sink $20+ a night into Gauntlet playing with 3other people. Doom was what got me hooked online on the PC and then I remember upgrading to a Pentium75 just to play Quake in...
Just stumbled onto this thread. I was wondering what other people thought about Monarch. I just cancelled an order for a CPU cooler last week and I called verify that it was being charged back to my credit card. The rep said that it would be about 30 days. I thought that it seemed like an awful...

Brings back some memories.
I remember upgrading from a Matrox M3d to a Stingray 128.
I stayed with 3dfx all the way up to a Voodoo3, then went to Nvidia.
Still have my Voodoo2 somewhere around here.
Raising the Bar is intended as a art/coffee table book. It was not really intended to be something you received with the game. It is an awesome book with alot of great concept art not seen in any of the games. It covers the story of Valve before they even started the original Half-Life. I would...
Well, I'm now able to play the game and enjoy it. Here's what I did...
Went into the cfg(C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\username\half-life 2\hl2\cfg) and changed the following:
snd_mixahead from 0.1 to 0
sv_force preload from 1 to 0
Setting any audio option to anything...
Same problem here.
Went from the memory leak error to this, but I can actually play the game now.
Happens mostly when someone starts talking and when music starts.
Great game so far, just kind of lose the immersion factor with the stuttering.
Same error here.
Still at work. I'll leave it up to you folks to come up with fix by the time I get home. ;)
I've had it pre-loaded for a while now. Had a voucher from like a year ago. Locks up at loading screen with error after choosing new game.
I'm getting a different error, but I'll try the workaround when I get home from work.
Was hoping to play a little bit this morning before work, but received the error. Didn't have time to troubleshoot. Hope it works, thanks!
I get the same thing whenever I start a new game.
I never get any further than selecting a new game. It then locks up at the last loading block everytime during the loading screen. I have to alt-tab to see error on desktop.
Running latest drivers, etc. and have absolutely no other issues...
I think this issue was acknowledged in the original read me for the game.
I had the same problem with my soundstorm chip on a NF7-S. Re-installed my Audigy and haven't had the problem since. There are many posts regarding these issues already.
...you remember playing on inferno(id's quakeworld server) with a 28.8 connection and no 3d card, getting your ass handed to you because you were still only using the keyboard to play quake...the memories
Switched from an ATI 9500 Pro to a 6800nu. Great card. I'm very happy with the switch. I've always had Nvidia cards since my last 3dfx card. I've always tried to get the best bang for the buck. I'll be really happy if can open up those 4 other pipes using Rivatuner.
I believe Greg Coomer at Valve originally posted these screens at the halflife2.net forums. Straight from the source. :)
This game will no doubt kick ass. Doom 3 kicks ass. People should just enjoy the games and quit bickering. The one thing I do miss in D3 is the double-barrel shotgun.
As ready as I'll ever be with 7 days to go...
