    Console to be or not to be ?

    I usually get console games in addition to my PC ones. Currently am looking forward to Nintendo's Gamecube. Halo looks mmmkay on XBox, but I don't think any of the graphics done on Halo couldn't be done on a GeForce2 or better though. So I'll just save myself some $$$ on XBox unless some absolute must have game is released for it that... I must have! Plus rumor has it that Bungie plans that Halo for XBox's multiplay be split-screen, and the PC version of Halo will have internet multiplay, partly due to Microsoft's internet strategy not being in place at the time of release... but that doesn't concern me much, because I was going to get the PC version over XBox anyway. You can't go wrong with a keyboard + mouse interface!

    Operation: Flashpoint Demo...

    Well, the demo 'tis alright. I have to admit, its pretty fun sniping people with an ak47. Only gripe I have is that the controls take a while to remap, and its all displayed on that icky laptop! Other than that, pretty cool.

    Station Docking

    Works for me.

    Station Docking

    Nope, this didn't work for me either. The stations.zip file was extracted to my demo directory (D:Program Files3000adBattlecruiser Millennium Demogfx). Upon docking, it booted me back to the windows screen. Hope some of this helps.

    Yay! My Demo Experience!

    I must say the regions seem a lot larger now. Takes a while in hyperspace to travel between points, even at full speed. And I also must point out that the ships are big, but the stations are MUCH BIGGER! Takes me 10 minutes on full burn just to get close to one, and by then I'm completely dwarved. And I'm real suprised how smoothly this thing runs! Athlon 700, 128 MB of RAM, and a Geforce2 MX. Wow, it runs like a dream, all without optimizations! And the music! Markus did a real good job, hats off to you! The track goes along very well with the "Entire Universe is Going On Without You And Could Care Less If You Existed" theme. Can't wait to get the first person mode and snipe some gammies.... just keeps getting better and better.

    Yay! My Demo Experience!

    My first post in a long while, good to be back! I spent 107461041471 hours (well, alright, 2) downloading the BCM lite demo, and let me say, it was worth it! Mmmmmmmmmm. I managed to defend the space station successfully. Wow, the fights now have some serious eye candy! After all the baddies were squished, I accidentally left my ship! Ack! After floating around aimlessly, I managed to call the ship back to me and have it stop within my general vicinity. After pitching around I stopped and stared... and stared... wow. The ships really are bigger! After some button smashing, I climbed back into the ship, and some more baddies showed up. Blew em all up, and then retired for the evening. Oooooh baby, BCM is going to rock the casbah! Post your demo experiences here! And yes, I am that crazy guy located in #bcm called PS-Kik2DaGroin! P.S. I noticed that the PTAs are now beams. I found it a wee bit hard to see them. I'm going to take a wild guess and assume that they are being rendered on a flat plane, giving them their flat appearance, which is the reason I think they are hard to see. This'll be fixed for the release, I hope, but if not, I'll just squint real hard! #bcm Channel Quote of the Night: Cmdr_GMAN> Ok for some strange reason the Sims CD in the drive just started. I really hate that game. PS-Kik2DaGroin> Derek must like the sims, he programmed the bcm beta to open up The Sims at random PS-Kik2DaGroin> Its a conspiracy!

    What has happend to ISS?

    Wow... it has been so long since I've posted here. I am INCREDIBLY sorry. I've been concentrating really hard on my school work this year so I can apply for a good college. My grades last year were bad so I need to work hard these next two years to make up for it. I also play Team Fortress Classic a lot and was invited into a clan in september, and have been occupied with that a lot lately. My next semester isn't too terribly packed with stuff to do so I'll hopefully be able to divide more time between school, TFC, and BC:M. (BTW: I did sign up for Beta, but couldn't get in. Oh well, at least I tried! I can wait for the demo...)

    Ideas of our pics in BCM Multi

    I don't think it'd be terribly hard. I've messed around with image programs before, but I think Ben is better at the stuff than I would be, seeing how he made the logos. Maybe when he gets back, we can all bug him!

    Defense Wing

    I believe I was on the Tactical Support Wing, but if we are laking in the Defense Wing, I'd be happy to just stay put in the Defense Wing.

    New RP Ideas

    Sounds alright to me. I suppose the uprising should take place in some system that doesn't have an incredible amount of military strength, because it doesn't make sense to have an uprising on, lets say Earth, when theres a space station with hundreds of thousands of troops in orbit. Sure there'd be a problem, but it wouldn't last very long . Of course, seeing how the fleet is in a very disorganized state at the moment, it could happen on Mars, or Pluto, or wherever. I think the idea of the Insurgents being behind it is a pretty good idea, they need something to do other than to just sit back and laugh as our fleet gets demolished by the Gammies. I assume this will take place after the Wraith Massacare is over? I believe right now ISS is amassing to defend the Sol Region from the Gam's...

    New Signature Compliance

    Well, since I'm not sure if Tactical Support Wing has a quote, I thought I might help on us decide on one, so I've been looking around, heres a few I found: In war there is no substitute for victory. Douglas MacArthur, General (1880-1964) No poor ******* ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making other *******s die for their country. George S. Patton, General (1885-1945) War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it. Desiderius Erasmus War will cease when men refuse to fight. Fridtjof Hansen You can't say civilization isn't advancing: in every war they kill you in a new way. Will Rogers (1879-1935) A man's feet should be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world. George Santayana (1863-1952) Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) War does not determine who is right - only who is left. Russell Bertrand Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way. George S. Patton, General (1885-1945) The world can only be grasped by action, not contemplation...The hand is the cutting edge of the mind. Jacob Bronowski Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical. Sun Tzu Thats all I can find for now, so I'll see if I can find anymore over the next day or two.

    Not aware if the Tactical Support Wing has a quote, so I removed it until all thats worked out. Now all thats left is to wait for the compatibility test to be released.

    Doesn't sound too different from the way mine was before.

    ISS ??

    Tactical Support Wing sounds fine to me. Once we get multiplayer, will we have weekly or bi-weekly meetings, and stuff like that?
