  1. Pre-ordered the game in 2001 with a friend from playing Microsoft Flight Sim. Always have been Allied. Joined up with VFA-25 pretty quick and played a lot until about 2005. VFA-25 was a total riot - had a lot of fun with those guys (sw25th, cirrus, Apache, kc, bitechu, enfuego, Carson, waverip, ogrenutz, guitar, etc.). I can't remember the name of my second squad, but I remember d0c7 and Itza were in that squad. We had some bad ass ground pounding days, with armor columns of over 50 Soumas. The past couple months I've played more than I ever have in the past 10 years. The game is pretty friggen good right now. OT was always a good time, and the crap that spawned out of it was so funny. I remember getting everyone together playing The Sims Online when it was beta. Hilarious. Playing Red Faction, and Aces High. My ONE question, though, is WHERE IS BILTON?
  2. Dinant and Anhee. OMG the memories of that mess. I remember when enemies could hop in your truck. A buddy of mine would meet my Opel somewhere as a French soldier and we'd go cap as many towns until we couldn't keep our eyes open. All coordinated through AIM alt-tabbing out. hahaha Driving for an hour waaaaaaay behind the line just to cap Bertrix. Don't know why, but Bertrix was always an obsession. Which reminds me of spending way too much time on that airfield trying to get on the wing of a Hawk 75 to do some jerry-rigged paradropping before that was a real thing. I think the wing-riding was a myth, though. I never got it to work. I don't know if anyone is still around that got into the Sims Online when that went beta. But a bunch of us from the OT crew played a LOT of Sims Online in beta. That was hilarious.
  3. I've got so much respect for this group. I still remember preordering this game and the first time launching in Dinant in one of the (3?) world servers we had. What a disaster this game was, but could not have more more fun to play. Thank you CRS, for all you do and continuing to make this game available, let alone improve upon it.
  4. disregard... I read every post in the forum BUT the sticky about the new NVIDIA drivers. Sure enough, that was the problem. Sorry guys
  5. AMD Athlon XP 3800+ X2 GeFore 7900GT 2 GB PC3200 RAM DFI Lanparty mobo - onboard audio (Realtek AC97) I have the settings maxed out but I know I should be getting more that 8 FPS. What the heck is going on with the graphics?
  6. Yeah but when I unplug the wheel isnt the joystick going to reset back to Joystick #1 in WWIIOL? I would think the keymapper would get all screwed up again.
  7. I have a steering wheel and a X52 plugged in to my computer, both USB. Is there a way to make WWIIOL disregard my wheel so only my joystick shows up? Because right now I have to fly with a wheel haha.
  8. Yep. it works now. thanks for the help
  9. Where is the clamp textures option?
  10. Anyone seen something like this? It just disappears right in the middle. I and having problems like this with tanks too I think, but I can't remember what the sights are supposed to look like.
  11. I've been monitoring my heat and everything is pretty low
  12. It's not entirely WWIIOL specific. My computer crashed playing DOD:Source today as well, but no blue screen, just restarted on its own. Sometimes when I get the blue screen of death or auto restart, when I come back to desktop after restart my graphics are severely distorted.
  13. This usually happens when I am playing WWIIOL, and has happened more often flying than playing on the ground... Just installed Windows XP PRO yesterday, just built this computer with all new parts. ABIT KN8 Ultra Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2GB Corsair ValueRAM DDR400 PC3200 eVGA GeForce 7800GT WD SATA Raptor HDD 10,000RPM 37GB Any ideas?
  14. Anyone know if there is much of a gain on a GT over a GS? And is there going to be any significant benefit when buying something that supports OpenGL 2.0 over OpenGL 1.5? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130258 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16814121192
