  1. I did check it out SC. That's why I posted here. See the profile here: http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?...21289&boardid=1 It really looked legit to me. I understand you point about making assumptions, and in this case, they were bad assumptions. I apologize for any false implications I have made about your character.
  2. SC, I was not trying to insult you. My post was not directed at you in such a manner. As far as being tricked by the imposter, that is my fault for not checking the reference, and for that I take responsability. I was hoping to encourage your endeavour while making a point. I though here would be an appropriate place because I wanted your thoughts, and on this board you don't have to deal with people flaming you, you can say what you want. That is why I wanted to post here. I wanted to get clarification on what exactly you were planning on doing. If an insult was felt againt you with regard to the manner of my stating my concerns then, Sir, I do apologize. Fractux.
  3. SC, regardless of the big debacle on this subject , I don't mind who gets the IP (better than it lying dormant or dead) as long as the final product is good. However, this pains me. From http://www.bluesnews.com quote: "[...] As for the mods, of course they HAVE NO RIGHT to exist and cut from the copyright holders profits. [...] " http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?...&threadid=50097 -Post #190 I think that a big strength amongst FS are the user made campains and modifications. Allowing the ability to mods stimulate a lot of interest in games now adays, and to hopefully get people to see how fun Space Sim's are and maybe inject some more life back into the genre, I'd like to think as much interest should be stimulated as possible. I would beg you to reconsider on that one particular point. Much like you've allowed people to make their own campain scripts with the GBS to make their own missions, I would hope any future FS endeavour will be open to further modification as well. It would just make a great game even better. Alot can be done with FS3, and I think that you do have some very interesting ideas for it. Thanks for your time. Fractux.

  5. One other question about vehicle turrent controll for anyone who has time to answer. I had jumped into a SAL (mobile), and I was wondering, after I press ALT to controll the turrent with my mouse I can controll and fire it just fine, but I can't aim the gun accurately as my view is only forward (i.e the turrent may be facing left, or up, but I can see where It's firing or aim it). I read through the docs, but I don't see a key. Did I miss anything? Thanks!
  6. Hey everyone. Just a quick question. I was playing around with the demo.(no, still haven't picked up a copy of UC yet) In the two IA scenarios where you're a marine and sniper, I was wondering if there was a way to turn off the red tag that appears in first person mode over an enemy. Because I'm playing in 800x600, and when an enemy is .3 - .4 clicks away, they are covered with the red bar, and it's sometimes a bit difficult to see where their body actually is. I looked through all the docs and didn't find a key or a toggle in the docs. Not a big deal, but just wondering. The FP combat has taken such a leap, I'm really enjoying it. Though, I've learned to keep a good distance between myself and my comrades who are both trigger happy and don't like authority figures... Cheers!
  7. I'll tell you what happened to me last night and how I used missiles. I was engaged in a firefight with a Garid and a Nighstar (I think it was). Well, my fighters were out there, but I forgot to change the loadouts from CAP to intercept, so needless to say, my fighters were not having a good time. So while fighting the garid, I was lobbing some missiles at the fighters. When the garid was almost finished, I fired off a couple of missile in its direction, then a a few more to finish off the fighters, and then proceeded to focus on the carrier. So, I do use the missiles. But in some situations I don;t use them at all. I do agree that sometimes the IOD seems like a uber weapon, but remember, other ship use their IOD's against you too. Cost me some trips to the undertaker. Cheers!

Yeah I was doing a bit of research yesterday to finally clear up the whole labeling debacle going on with all of these cards, because one of my brother's clients was wanted a 9200. Check out some of these charts on TOMS ( I know some people don't trust the site, but the graphs are clear at least ) Toms VGA chart's III Cheers!
  9. I know none of this is an ideal situation, but with UC selling like hotcakes, maybe all the additional exposure will, in the end, do quite a bit of good. When people see the posibilities they can have in a game, they may crave for more. (And after reading you latest interview on HomeLan, here's hoping ) Cheers!
  10. Recently I've only been playing the Savage demo quite a bit, as well as some Freespace2. Oh yeah, and hearts... I've been getting a bit addicted again. I haven't played BCM for a while, as I'm letting myself get my work done now, so that I can buy and play UC later on. heh
  11. This was posted on HardOCP, and I though it was pretty funny. Well, maybe the first couple of minutes, afterwords it gets pretty annoying. quote: DonÔÇÖt Steal Games Video: Although the video does have a valid point, this early 90ÔÇÖs anti-copy video is hilarious with a capital H ( right click, save as ). The video is 16mb and worth the download. Blame Matt Johnson for this one. http://static.hugi.is/video/fyndin/dctf-1.wmv IMO, just watching this video will make anyone fall to their knees and cry out that they will stop copying games just to make it stop. Cheers!
  12. I don`t think they should have made this public at all, because, while they say their intentions were not to inflict any damage, they did use the threat of releasing it and they have now done so. However, if they had no intentions of causing any harm or creating a rukus (which was the only way to get publicity though, so in one sense, I can see why they made the threat), they should not have released it tothe public. Just send it to Microsoft, and if they don`t want to do anything about it, then fine. Then just wait untill another person who wishes to release a hack creates their own and then decided to go public. Then again, from this ZDnet article ( http://www.zdnet.com.au/newstech/security/...275965-1,00.htm ) it looks like this group could have made itself 100 grand. There`s incentive enough, I suppose. Maybe they`ll have to use it to fight off the MS legal team.. ouch! Then again, it was mentioned that there sre several ways for MS to counter the hack so maybe this is just a dead end.
  13. You can download BC studio in the File Downloads section. Here`s the direct link to save you time. http://www.3000ad.com/downloads/bcm/gbs/bcstudio.zip Cheers!

    BCG @ E3

    Well, Derek, you know we are all behind you as avid fans of the series. I know we can't pay your bills but we can tell you how much enjoyment these games give us. This series is so absolutely engrossing that no one else is willing to create another like it out of fear, like you said. It's sad that I have to agree with you that people now adays are not going to see the series for what it is. Then again, while other's may be raking in the cash, whose going to remember all the games in such a saturated market? The BC series stands out, and thus when people look at space sims, they are going to have difficulty finding anything even close to your titles. Maybe you'll make others see that so much more is possible if people are only willing to invest the time and effort and to not conform to standards. To make the game for the game, and not for the suits or the bucks. May not make people rich in the bank, but it sure makes for a much richer life. I think we have proof enough in this case to make that statement.
  16. Flips though calendar then cancells everything for September!! So much for my GPA
  17. Well I saw Matrix reloaded today, all I can say is, that if you are going to watch it, go see it in the theater if only for the sound and the big screen, because while I did enjoy it, it didn`t leave me wit the same feeling, or any real intrigue at all. The story leads you into the final chapter, basically, so while I like tha fact that we get to hear the backstory, and see what`s the reality of the world, there`s really nothing new, nothing more to think about, untill the last bit of the movie where you find out whats really going on. The action sequences were very cool, no doubt. So I recommend going to see this movie in the theater, and take it for what it is. The continuation of the story. The beginning feels all wrong though, and that took me a while to get over. I think it set a bad starting pace for the movie. After that, it was alright. I think that a lot of people disliked the mass dance scene, and the sex scene, but I suggest you watch the animatrix series. For all the crazyness and disorder going on, it`s the same kind of wierd feeling you get watching the second renaissance. The human emotions, the pounding music serving to make a big contrast between being a human being and being a machine and all the crazyness that goes on, be it right or wrong. Anyways, I won`t keep going on about my thoughts, as there are a lot of interpretations that could be made. If you skipped all that text to read this, then go see the movie, and make your own opinion. It`s definitely not a standalone film, more like the filler in a 3 part series. 3.14159265358979323846 / 5 Cheers!
  18. I still have yet to see the film, will probably go next week, but in the meantime I was just watching the four Animatrix episodes that you can download. I enjoyed the The Second Renaissance episodes, the other two I found just mildly entertaining. Cheers!
  19. Very slick, I'm giving this a try right now. Cheers!
  20. It has probably been deleted, if it's not showing up. I think I remember having the same thing, finding an older thread in search but finding it was deleted. Cheers!
  21. Forget a market based economy, go for the "Big Lazer Gun Toting Economy". It makes life so much more interesting. Plus, it's more like the real world that way. The big guns controll the big bucks
  22. Now I can send my marines hunting for their own food instead! * imagines a BC coming down and wreaking havoc * wipes drool off desk... * goes to get his BCM fix...
