Glad to hear you've got a solution. Too bad the hater(s) had to come in here and threadcrap when all you asked for was some help. Makes one wonder why they spend so much energy on something they hate. Attention-whores, methinks.
I've been playing since it first came out in 1995. The free version for Windows (Steel Panthers: World at War) is a definite improvement on the old DOS version. I keep the files backed up on a disc in case Matrix no longer distributes it. An excellent game that will run on any computer. You've...
He's not saying the models were reused, have you read his comment? He says the units are the same except for their appearance. Pretty much the opposite of what you're reading into it. While I don't necessarily agree with this in the case of Warcraft 3, Warcraft 1 and 2 were most certainly guilty...
Fanboys? You yourself acknowledged there are more haters. And guess what, you're one of them. As far as I can see, you're the only one slinging insults around this thread. I can see why you'd self apply the label of loser.
I ran it on my 8800 GTS at 1280x1024 with everything on High and either 2x or 4x AA (sorry, don't recall right now) with smooth play. Maybe we're the exceptions, but somehow I don't think so. Some people just expect 100+ frames per second no matter what I guess.
I used one once at a LAN for about 10 minutes playing Prey deathmatch. I can't say I liked it very much, but the guy who brought it liked it and was certainly competent with it. See if you can find one to try out first, as it is quite a different style from a more conventional mouse.
This is what I was referring to in part:
A good argument need not belittle another to stand up on its own merit. I'm not saying I disagree with how you feel about Ebert, I'm simply saying your essay would be the stronger for removing such statements.
A mostly good read. Do you plan on doing anything more with this, something professional perhaps? If so, I'd recommend polishing it up a bit more. Saying "Film could never achieve that" is on the same level as what you accuse Ebert of doing. And I'd remove the insults entirely.
For those that play online, isn't vanilla CoH the same as OpFro, just without access to Panzer Elite and the Brits? That was the point of that 2+ GB patch, yes? That would make it in line with Relic's online treatment of DoW. If so, it'd be worthwhile for the original poster to know he may be...
Trash is free, you can play as the Humans. If you purchase the game, you get access to the Mutant side as well. I haven't played the game, though so this may not be 100% correct. I'm at work and cannot verify details for you. But feel free to check it out and let us know.
This is from the other thread, for completeness' sake:
I'd also like to add the fact that indie developers are much more likely to develop for the PC. This ties in with mods as well. Just about anyone with any budget can develop for the PC. The same cannot be said for consoles.
Mods are a very big reason. Free content is hard to argue against.
Steam is another great reason. Ease of use, access to older, hard to find titles, automatic updating - all of these are reasons Steam is a Good Thing.
