Console Games / xbox 360 launch hype
« on: November 22, 2005, 01:37:26 pm »
Drove around a little this morning and checked out the xbox 360 launch hype (Near Philadelphia, PA)  BJs gave out 5 standard units I congratulated a few leaving with their boxes probably could have snagged one If Id been there 30 mins earlier.  Best Buy was more hardcore.  The point man had been there since 9PM the night before and watched the 50 some leaders get on the board.  They organized their own list and kept careful records of who got in line / when.  The store didnt open until 9, but at 6AM a best buy rep came by and handed out about 50-60 vouchers.  Apparently there were about 20 premium and 30 standard units to be had.  Some people fell asleep in their cars and missed out it was cold and windy all night with that light misty rain that chills to the bone!

sorry, looks like the beta is closed to new users - I wouldn't have posted this if I knew they were going to shut it down!  :'(

PC Games / Peter Jackson's King Kong PC Demo - Mouse Bug?
« on: October 24, 2005, 10:51:40 am »
I saw the massive downloads of this on filefront so I gave it a whirl.  Something's wrong with the mouse, because at the language select screen the pointer sinks to the bottom right hand corner incessantly, and when I get into the play part of the first half of the demo the FPS view keeps spinning spinning spinning.  Anyone else have this problem?  Do I really need to uninstall my Razer Diamonback drivers just to play?  UHG.  Really bummed I can't play, especially after Steve & the guys talked about it on the podcast.

PC Games / Star Wars Battlefront II Beta

Anyone playing this online & have comments?  From what I gather you either love it or hate it.

I think that for a beta it plays _Reallly nice_... they need to do some more balancing, fix some clipping issues ++ other various bug fixes, but overall I think it's a blast to play.  Really good feel to the weapons/movement and great gameplay.  The space battles need some polishing, but the eye candy is delicious.

PC Games / Re: ATI
« on: October 24, 2005, 10:42:56 am »
I've been jumping between nVidia & ATI since my old powermac days...  My current rig is 6800GT SLI.

ATI cards have always been touchier for gaming and require more thoughtful usage... probably why all the zombies that don't care properly for their windows installations / driver sets will tell you to run to nVidia.  In my opinion both are fine once properly understood.

As for your particular problem: my knee-jerk response is that you have a hardware issue.  This could be solved by flashing the card's bios, or by returning the card.  Where did you get it if I might ask?  There are bad cards floating around out there.  Also, are all your drivers & bios's uptodate?  Mobo, network, etc.

I would also suggest you try these:

If you update all your other hardware drivers, load the omega driver, and still get the same error that methinks you have a bad card.  Sorry :)

I'm surprised there was no comment on the xbox 360 PSU... Is it true that it's big?  That would explain the light weight of the console itself eh?
