Do enough people here play 1942 for us all to get together on a map? - Page 3  

post #61 of 132
okay, that server is full, and can't get back online.

I will take a break, and be back on mIRC later, and back on BF42.

Good game Shawn O. We almost had the last one.

Later!

What program do you use to read those .con files?

Hey Shawn,

Notepad opens it, however, I just have to doubleclick the file and it opens.

Then change value and save it.

Stay tuned.

Okay, I threw down the 30 bucks for All Seeing Eye!!!

And its expanded search functions!

Everyone that is gonna play BF should use All Seeing Eye either Trial or Full version to find servers. It seems to find more servers than EA's, so if for no other reason use that!

All Seeing Eye works!!!

ASE rox.. i love that proggy!

I'm in for CoD as well. that game is freakin' awesome.. i haven't been able to get into the multiplayer as much as i want 2.. i'm hopelessy addicted to the "day of defeat" (half-life mod) currently. I like the objective CTF based gameplay that it offers, and it also runs pretty sweet on my lamo PC :)

I had no probelms at all with the scoreboard fix. I installed 1.6 and then the 'fix' without even trying before using the 'fix' and all was well. Sorry you have so many problems. I didn't realize I was so lucky :)

post #71 of 132
I think all my problems were attributed to that:

"renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 0" issue.

A bunch of people over at the EA message boards had the problem with ATI RAdeon cards (which I have).

I was gonna just wait for the DC .7 patch, but what the heck, I might as well reinstall DC w/scoreboard fix.

See you guys on ASE :->

Quick Question: After the new .6 update, why are some servers highlighted yellow and others are grey? At first I thought they were servers that wouldn't work with your setup (like if you didn't have DC installed, they those servers would be grey), but I don't think that is it. So why some yellow and some grey? Waiting for the totally obvious :->

Thanks!

Does the search for buddies work now that you paid?
post #74 of 132
Hey Shawn,

Yes, ASE works well once you lay down the $30 or $15. I put into "Player Search": avs or {AVS} and it pulled up myself, you and Shrapnel.

So that is my goto game finder now.

Hopefully, I can get into a game in a few. Chat soon!

Excellent.
post #76 of 132
Add {AVS} heids24

to the list of ASE finds.

Make sure you select "match part of name", because at first I wasn't using that :-\\

Also, make sure you use "Player Search" which is an icon at the top, because the other search functions I haven't figured out yet.

We are slowly adding to our numbers :->

Well the work week has arrived, and I will return to online play this Thursday night. Although, I will try to stop by and stay posted on what is going on. Had fun fighting it out with you guys. I look forward to next weekend! Take care!

This friday we get to see what the .7 patch of Desert Combat holds for us.

:->

Chat soon.

I should be on most nights this week.

Install Mirc, its the nuts, when u join it shows what game the other people are playing.
post #79 of 132
I'm definatelly game for Friday and Saturday night. It looks like I'll be buying ASE too. I hate to change the topic, but I was wondering what type of character do you guys like to play? I usually use the medic class, but I'll switch to anti-tank if it looks like some heavy machinery is moving in. I think we might be more effective actually having a strategy instead of the typical game where everybody rushes for the checkpoints and forgets to leave someone behind to guard the captured one. This is going to be fun!
post #80 of 132
I am game for Friday and Saturday as well. I am infantry and anti-armor most of the time.

I think the voice will help us with strategy.

Check this out about .7 Desert Combat!!!!
_______
DesertCombat 0.7 is nearing.. Below is some screenshots to show off some of the level changes you can expect in the next release. One of the primary goals of DC.7 was optimization and bug fixes, so you can expect DesertCombat to run a lot better on most machines. We are also including bot support for Basrahs Edge and it is a lot of fun...

check out desertcombat.com for some extra sweeeet pics!!!!

later!

I've been off the computer for a few nights. Going skiing for several more days but I'm still here...

What does the "renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 0" line do?
post #82 of 132
Hey Ron,

Just a quick explanation, since I don't completely understand what the line does you mentioned. However, after the 1.6 patch, a number of people with ATI Radeon 9700 cards and above where having menu problems. The menu was way off center. On my display, I was getting a SIGNAL warning message, and no image was displayed; however, I could hear the game sounds. I have a 50lc13 LCD RP TV. So for whatever reason, I was getting this warning.

The above line somehow took away the troubles for us ATI Radeon guys.

Hey guys,

Cool feature that I just found thanks to the Faq on ASE: All Seeing Eye

Go to Tools: Find Buddy Names

And this pulls up all names that have been on servers for an extended time, with last time they played, not just people currently playing.

You will need the full version though.

I purchased the full version.Very nice.

Wegafan,are you going to be playing tonight?
post #86 of 132
Hey Shawn,

Yes I will, and most likely in the next few minutes as well.

I was hoping the .7 Desert Combat would make an appearance, as well as the new FINN WARS mod that is about to debut. Hmm, nothing yet on either.

See you online! :->
post #87 of 132
Are you guys planning on meeting at the IRC AVS chatroom? If not could someone post the IP and server name of the server you decide on?
Thanks,
Jake

What is CoD,a map or mod or something?
post #89 of 132
Hello,

We will meet on mIRC chat room then follow whomever is there first to the game either using mIRC or ASE to the server. You can use either to see what server we are on.


CoD= Call of Duty: not a mod, but a stand alone game similar to Medal of Honor. Many say better.

But I am still partial to Battlefield myself. :->
