  1. I played on a Knife/Pistol server last night and it was pretty funny.

    The mod wanted people to spawn only at 2 points and he (despite what it said) wanted it to be knife only. So all these troops would appear and then march towards the other side and this big West Side Story brawl would break out in the town square.

    Of course some moron would come on the board and take an APC and just go plowing through the middle of everyone just killing both teams.

    People would get mad and boot players. Guys would regroup and go at it and then boom, here comes a tank killing everyone. More booting. Snipers are having a field day from the buildings around the square. Other people were more interested in padding their flag captures ( :bag: ) and overall it was just a really funny session to be a part of.

  2. Sorry I just didn't have time to go through all this thread, but I was a huge BF1 fan--I bought all the expansion packs and downloaded all the mods and etc...

    I have yet to jump into the BF2 pool simply because I have been spending money elsewhere and I need to desperately upgrade my machine.

    I have a P4 2.4 512 with a very out of date video card.

    What would be the cheapest way to upgrade so I could play??

    For cheapest to be able to play, I am going to go on the assumption that you have 2 256 MB RAM chips and 2 free slots. I will also assume you have an AGP slot. Correct me if I am wrong. This setup will let you play any game out RIGHT NOW:

    Oh wait, I don't know what type of RAM your computer takes, but either way, figure $35-50 to add another 512 RAM.

    As for video card, here are a few options:

    ATI X1600 Pro $129

    ATI X800 GTO $175

    NVidia 6800 GS $219

    NVidia 6800 $154

    Now, I would rank them from low to high just as priced - lower to higher. I can give you a $300 AGP card that roXor, but that is not what you are asking. If you wanted to know the sweet spot, I would say the X1600 Pro is a good card for the price, but you get a lot of AGP bang for the buck with the X800GTO.

    Now, you want to know the irony of it all? If you had a PCI-Express slot, I could tell you about the ATI X850XT for $154, which would outperform the $300 AGP cards, but such is life. Almost enough to want to upgrade the motherboard/CPU, huh?

    WOW!! Thanks for all the options. I am at work until 5:00 and so I can't really tell you the exact specs on my RAM situation. I had my system built by a PC company in town, so I don't have the exact specs on the motherboard either right now. But I have the sheet with all that at home.

    I will post those later--thanks in advance for all your help.

  4. I'm sure you guys have covered this but what happened to the guy who used to watch after the clock. The guy Jack knew from running the stadium? I know he ran off...but geez...I don't remember seeing the guy again since then...did I miss an episode?

    He ran off into the woods and we haven't heard from him since--they will come back to him I am sure,

  5. I understand the holiday tv schedule was to blame, but bottom line is they need to go on a run of new shows now and rekindle the interest. None of this air 2 shows and then show 3 reruns. I think with the nature of this show, they need to keep the questions/answers coming.I am a huge fan, but have found myself losing some interest due lack of new shows.

  6. Any of you guys going to watch Threshold?  Being touted as the "creepiest show since Twin Peaks".

    I don't know. All 3 of the networks are bringing out their contribution to try and be the next X-Files this year--so at least 2 of them will flop and be gone after the first year I am guessing.

    I am curious to see what ABC is going to do with Invasion since the whole idea is about a massive hurricane hitting a town and then the aliens come during the storm. Will they even air something like that at this point?

    edit: Oh, and I bought the Lost boxed set but it is still sitting there in the bag. I hope to get around to part of it next week.

  7. Anyone hear know anything about back belts? I get lower back pains sometimes and will be required to lift heavy stuff every know and then. Do the back belts work? Which kind should I buy? Hopefully a cheap one :yes:

    Something from Sears I would say....I've never used one, so I don't know. What are you going to be lifting? Bodies? Bales of drugs?? Crates of bolts? Furniture?
