Re: Do most of us understand

...just something that everyone who plays online should know... If that were true my brother would know not to reset the modem every time his xbox crashes and burns :|. It would also mean forums for modern PC games wouldn't be needed (yep, I've looked, a good chunk of the issues that aren't because...

Re: Do most of us understand

I thought I was pretty clear and I even though GSH's rundown was clear. If changing graphic settings -> better performance, your problem is your rig. If better connection / net code fixes -> better performance, your problem was network related and in no way treatable through changes besides those th...

Re: bz2 lag, bz1 no lag

I'm on dialup, are there any graphic settings... Yeah, stop right there. I don't know what it is with people but they seem to confuse one function with another. At home do you wear glasses to hear better? Thought not. You are describing Client-Side framerate drops if your graphics settings ever res...

Re: Goodbye to all things Battlezone

I've always said, 'Don't say goodbye, just disappear.' Not exactly easy to do if one of the few people who is devoted to everything BZ is also on your Steam Friends list :lol:. DS, do what you think you need to do. In the meantime I'll be floating around making comments to problems I know the answe...

Thank you, fixing former post accordingly (Point stands, the basis is there, just no one has fully exploited it from what I've seen).

Re: BZ3: Genesis

Actually... The last cutscene left room for a potential sequel with an Achilles chunk headed into the general direction of Earth (aka. collision course with Earth -> new biometal shower on Earth -> new faction -> story ideas).

Re: Portal 2

It was alright... Eh well, anyway, people like it, I don't particularly like it myself, so meh. I agree with this point in regards to the multiplayer campaign and slightly on the fact that the puzzles seemed easier, but that is probably because I knew what to expect given I had completed every aspe...

Re: hey guys

Last I checked they call themselves testers, not players; just like I call myself not involved with BZ2 while you call yourself a vet (which, honestly that title died when the real players quit a few years back). Because of the first statement your logic is flawed and for what it's worth great job u...

Re: Good idea- but not working.

:shock: perhaps I should reinstall Battlezone 2 on this rig. I'm liking what I'm seeing.

Re: How did you discover BZ2?

My dad was introduced to Battlezone by a friend at work and saw it as a masterpiece (He still thinks of it as such to this very day) and grabbed Battlezone II right off the shelves when it released. As far as I can tell he only ever played the campaigns and so never played online let alone worried a...

Re: Key Combination CTRL B

No, its because gameprefs is assumed by the engine as persistent and if it changes you have effectively created a situation where you cannot connect to anyone because of incompetence. Localprefs is an exact copy of gameprefs except that it is not checked for sanity by the engine (Last I checked, don...

Re: Happy 4th of July 2011

Dem burn bans ruining the fun. Then again it did prevent the neighbors from going all out like last year and almost lighting my house on fire, but it also means the firework display at the military base down the road wasn't as spectacular. Oh, and ditto @ the surprised reactions of most of the previ...

Re: Happy Canada Day

It would have been (in my opinion) perfectly fine to have up if it wasn't animated is the point I'm getting at.

Re: Happy Canada Day

There was only one thing inappropriate about the image and the very reason why the image was listed as animated to start with (aka .gif). Think it was at the bottom left corner of the image if you happen to have an archived copy / the original.

Re: which b89 variant should i use?

What would be best is if you had the latest installed to your primary install of BZ2. It is possible (but very impractical depending how you do it) to just have multiple installs of Battlezone 2 on your harddrive patched to the various patches that you play (The most practical setup being to have 1....
