Just been reading the manual... I like the way you get more stamina by drinking booze. :D

Who wants to join the MP clan then? Huh? I think my skills would be most suited to being a soldier. I don't have the temprament to be an engineer or a medic. I can move and shoot and taunt though.

Lieutenant would be good too. Calling down artillery barrages sounds such fun. :D

I've stopped playing RtCW till I learn the thousands of key combinations in Battlecruiser Millennium... :( (got to get the review out this century)

and anyway multiplayer always sucks with modems...

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 12:19:01
Go on then I'll have a dabble.

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 12:22:02
We need a clan name.

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 12:47:05
HARDMANZ

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 12:49:41
I quite like The Glowns or Reglowed

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 12:51:29
I'm not bothered as long as I get to kill people with a variety of weapons.

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 12:52:29
:shoot:

Venom
07-12-2001, 12:55:30
I suppose I can play. I fill any part that we need.

Venom
07-12-2001, 12:55:53
Oh that's right. I'm 3000 miles away. Never mind.

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 13:06:43
I'm in a Tribes 2 clan in America, it's not a problem.

Venom
07-12-2001, 13:20:05
Just checking to see if you limeys minded having a Yank tag along.

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 13:28:44
If I get to kill you I'm happy.

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 13:44:06
The more the merrier I think!

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 13:56:14
I can play after around 4:30pm but I'll be going to the pub later on tonight then out to a club or two :)

In the mean time I have to do some database queries :(

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 14:01:12
I'll get home at about quarter past six and then I'm either going to Bristol for a night out or probably get roped out to doing something in Reading. Dunno yet.

Can play tomorrow. Probably.

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 14:09:44
Working 8am 'til 2pm tomorrow then I have to start doing some work on a team project. I thought students didn't have to do any work :(

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 14:11:49
'sOK I have to learn the game a bit first so probably play some 1p.

Venom
07-12-2001, 14:21:10
I can play tomorrow I think. I've got some supplies that I must buy, but I can make it anywhere between 2pm and 8pm your time.

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 14:25:32
Excellent. Say 2 and I'll leave you a message if I can't make it.

Venom
07-12-2001, 14:27:13
Alright. Sounds like a plan.

Funkodrom
07-12-2001, 14:38:28
Mein Leben!

MattHiggs
07-12-2001, 14:41:32
You'll love the single player game, for me it was more enjoyable than Half Life and AvP2!

Venom
07-12-2001, 14:45:18
I still think Half-Life was a little more enjoyable, but this is one damn fine game.

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 16:10:23
Played a bit of the first mission. (I knew I wouldn't be able to play a lot at the weekend). Pretty tense, especially as my usual tactic is to run headlong into everything. Never played Thief or any of those more cerebral FPS so I have to get used to sneaking around a bit more.

MattHiggs
10-12-2001, 16:25:56
Just wait until you get into the atmospheric catacombs or the stealth level where you can't be seen.

I'm in but only on 56k, though.

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 16:40:56
Cool. Try it out sometime and see how it runs, Venom and I couldn't play at the weekend 'cause it kept crashing his machine.

Venom
10-12-2001, 16:43:22
GODDAMN STUPID CRASHES!

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 16:44:41
I had plenty of UK servers giving me pings of 50 or less though. :D

There are 4 gamesdomain.co.uk servers that were consistently quick. Probably try and get on one of them again sometime.

Venom
10-12-2001, 16:45:47
Bastard.

I quit trying and went and played Grand Turismo 3. And Fifa, and Metal Gear Solid 2.

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 16:48:16
FIFA Schmifa, Pro Evolution Soccer! :heart:

Venom
10-12-2001, 16:54:57
I wish. It's confirmed, it won't work here.

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 16:59:00
Yeah, I looked into that as well. Sucks. :(

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 16:59:25
What about the Japanese version? I can't remember what that's called off the top of my head...

Venom
10-12-2001, 17:04:34
Don't know about that one. I'd expect the same though.

Funkodrom
10-12-2001, 17:05:52
The Japanese ones might work on US PS2s... dunno.

Venom
10-12-2001, 17:14:38
Can't hurt to ask, can it?

Well it can, as long as you don't break your jaw while talking or your fingers while typing.

I'm in, just got the game today. :coolgrin: German version though ... :(

Can anybody who has the English one send me the sp_pak2.pk3 file (located in the 'Main' directory)? It's roughly 10MB big.

Resource Consumer
10-12-2001, 23:16:25
I would but I am still on 56K. I'll see if I can ask someone else to do it who's on cable.

Resource Consumer
10-12-2001, 23:17:18
Which e-mail address do you want it sent to?

10-12-2001, 23:44:32
OK. I'll ask Sam to do this tomorrow - he should have loads of time and capacity.

Mightytree
11-12-2001, 00:34:59
Ok, thanks. :)

Mightytree
11-12-2001, 01:22:17
Nevermind, just found it on Morpheus. Thanks anyway.

Funkodrom

Does that mean you'll get the English speech?

Resource Consumer
11-12-2001, 10:02:47
You get the zobies grunting in English rather than German.

What's the best way to take out those flame zombies by the way?

Funkodrom
11-12-2001, 10:11:15
I'm still on level one, haven't got very far yet. My style is really not suited to the 1p game, I keep running into trouble and getting shot to hell.

I'm finding it a little difficult to get head shots on this as well compared to Half Life, perhaps I'm just out of practice.

Resource Consumer
11-12-2001, 10:31:19
Mike, two words of advice


1) Stealth rules here and the knife is your best friend. Particularly at the start - using the knife means you keep your health.

2) The "c" key. Crouch when firing. This ensures that you are aiming at the body and stops the target from ducking under your shots. It's a bit tricky getting the alt and c keys working together but by the end of the level you should have it.

Funkodrom
11-12-2001, 11:53:33
What's alt for? I don't use that I don't think but I might have remapped the key to something else.

I tried backstabbing the doctor at the start but he just turned round and shot me so I didn't do that again... most of the people I meet seem to be facing me.

Nav
11-12-2001, 12:21:43
Thnk the trick is to hold down the mouse button when stabbing.. that does a psycho knifing action, which will kill him..

im stuck at the bit with the big hairy monster that fires ghosts that make you blind (and hurt you)... I unload everything I've got into but no difference! is there another way round it/him???

Funkodrom
11-12-2001, 12:24:19
Aaaah. I'll try that. Approaching alert troops with guns with the knife seems reasonably suicidal though.

Funkodrom
11-12-2001, 12:25:25
Then again, if I'd killed the doc quietly the alarm might not have gone off...

Nav
11-12-2001, 12:55:25
Exactly, if you're careful you can take out the first three or four soldiers with the knife.. it's only when you get to the main stairs that you have to start using the machine gun!

Funkodrom
11-12-2001, 12:57:36
Too late now and I had full health by the time I got to the main stairs anyway so it's not too much trouble. Don't seem to have any ammo problems either. Not at the moment anyway.

That's where I'm stuck at. That's Heinrich the first. I did just the same thing. I unloaded everything, but to no effect.

Venom
11-12-2001, 13:12:19
Oh, and set the alarm off. Just gives you more bastards to kill.

MattHiggs
11-12-2001, 13:52:42
Killing the big thing is easy, just run out kill all the minor zombies, run back into initial place where the health and ammo is and just keep running back out grenading the monster or shooting it, then run back in, he can't follow you in there.

Peice of piss.

I completed the single player game about 2 weeks ago. Just wait 'til you really get into it, it gets a lot harder.

I'm not sure if that file also affects the speech. It replaces all the graphics that are censored in the German version though, e.g. Nazi symbols.

Funkodrom
11-12-2001, 14:01:55
Ah right. I was going to ask about that. I knew I'd seen things before about certain games having to be censored for the German market.

What do you recommend for the zombies?

Mightytree
11-12-2001, 14:23:49
Yep, apparently some people here think that we'll turn into monsters and start WWIII if we play those games uncensored.

Venom
11-12-2001, 14:24:37
I bet they're more concerned you'll start going out and actually killing the Nazi's.
