  1. Hey guys, how are you? I'm seeing a new trend that is stronger every day, and it's worth the attention. The name is Discord. Don't get me wrong, I'm a long term user of team speak and I always though it was the best over ventrillo and skype, but then Discord came. Discord mix great and free voice comunication, robust chat and forum/like system that reminds IRC and whatsapp, free mobile app and it works even on a browser. It's great for game devs as you can keep your community together and a user can participate in various discord communities at same time. So I could be speaking on another discord server and still get a notification from Xoom about a Welcome back soldier promotion. I'm seeing more and more game communities going to Discord and I hope you guys can create a Channel there. I'm pretty sure thats the future of game coms. Here is a invite to a fully working Discord community to you guys have a better idea on how it works. from the game "Squad":
  2. I guess what would happen with your suggestion is: everyone playing as rifleman after 10 mins of ao. Rifle wars.... Rifle angry wars...
  3. Marks goal is to give you a notion of the enemy position. Not the exact one. Plus what makes you think that precise marks and icons would make you die less? Quite the oposite. The enemy team would have 2 guys on binos 24hrs spotting and the enemy tanks would be ripping u apart no matter how hidden you are. Another example: After driving your tank for 10 mins you arrive in the AO and one infantry spot you, all the suddently all the enemy tanks can see a frikking red icon over your head and you would be dead instantly. This idea is just real bad.
  4. The problem of that idea is: - Hey mate1, theres this game, ww2ol, give it a try. Download and lets play with me. Join the axis and we go together. - Mate2, I can't join axis, only allied, something to do with population I think. - Ugh, I can't join allied, otherwise my squad is going to kick me. - Lets play another game then? - Sure, lets go.
  5. Schweize, I belive the problem is exactly when the person choose a side to play the whole campaign. Normally they take this decision based on the result of the last campaign, as you mentioned. Locking them away would even increase the problem, wouldn't it? What about when intermission starts there's a popup asking which side the person will play the next campaign with a bar showing the results. Not in numbers, but in %? That way people would know if the next campaign will be balanced or not. This would also encourage people to make a decision based on the numbers. For example, if I see that 80% of the people are going to play as axis, I could switch to allied. If people could change votes during the intermission I belive that this way people would look to balance the numbers. What do you guys think?
  6. My friend had a similar problem and it was that c++ package etc etc
  7. sorry, but modern stug would win NT-8X2JOcAc
  8. Hello rats. I have one suggestion for you that maybe will increase alot the game performace, especially on big battles. I dont know if it has been posted before, but here it is: Remove the auto explosion from HE rounds(those range limit air explosions) making their simple disappear instead. (or at least make an option to we dont see/hear it) Those autoexplosions are reallistic, I agree. But they kill the frame rate incredibly. One big battle near an AF or DDs, heavy ais, big planes furballs and your client will have to load: hundreds of sounds from the he autoexplosion, the animation of the explosion and the smoke made by it. Hundreds of those. If they simple disappear like in every other game around there I think that would improve alot the FPS and people wont be missing anything. when I had an low end computer those explosions really killed my framerate and now with my new computer I dont feel it very much, but i think it's still there. So, what do you think about it?
  9. the problem is the auto mouse aceleration BS that we get using win7
  10. actually its the bits problem.... no 32bits system can run more than 3.4gb.. only 64bits
  11. what error do you get?
  12. do you have xp 64bits? 32bits cant read 4gb and they say that 64bits of xp is notthat great
  13. Hello, I'm from brazil and I found this in a brazilian war veteran website, he got one of these trow by german air planes over the italian front where the FEB (brazilian army) fought in 1944. the text says: "Brazilians, Have you already think why americans treat you so well? It is to get you in the package! Why they want to get you in the package? to make brazilian's best soldiers go away! Why they want to make brazilian's best soldiers go away? To make you unable to defend your land inside Brazil! Who threat brazilian's borders? The enemy that is already there! Who is the real enemy from brazil? The imperialist american that want to make Brazil a colony!" interesting uh?
  14. I think I post this in the wrong section... if a mod is kind enought to move it to military history??? thanks ;(
  15. Hi everyone, My fraps is bugged just for ww2ol, it locks on 10 fps recording, no matter what I change. Very odd indeed. I have tried to change the fps recording option, tried with sound and without sound, still always 10 fps while recording. first I though it was because i'm using windows 7 with compatibility mode, but my friend uses it too and he dont have this problem. I can record other games, like Dragon ages origins, Newest operation flash point, need for speed shift and others without a problem, only ww2ol locked in 10 fps. im really pissed my computer is Phenom II x3 720 Black edition @3.2ghz 4gb ddr3 memory ati 4870 xfx ddr5 memory someone knows whats happening?????
  16. I would wait until you can have money for a full upgrade. Do not buy 4000+ or x24800 they both suck. Buying 1 or 2 pieces, will bottleneck your system anyway and it will not get a real boost on performace. in case you dont know what bottleneck is: If you buy an athlon 4000 and later on buy a 9600gt, the cpu will not allow the video card work propely, and you will have wasted your money. Pc pieces must be all at same level of performace or they all runs at the slowest speed to let your slower piece work. Just like memory ram. If you buy a 800mhz stick and a 667mhz stick... they will both run at 667mhz, the 800mhz will be bottlenecked. PLus, even dual cores are getting old by now, we are living the quadcore era. These new cpus do not have only the cores advantages, they have inumerous advantage vs the old ones, better tecnology, plataform, bandwith with the memory, cache etc etc that result on a great better performace. Btw where the hell do you live? 200$ for a x24800?? thats almost an insult, not even in my contry the price is that, and we get alot of taxes here, the pc pieces are so overpriced. I just bought a phenom II x3 720 black edition (newest phenom, great performace) for 160$.
  17. I heard home premium is the best for gamming
  18. Same problem here. But im not using my hometheatre for a while because I'm gaming only at night so I have to use headphones
  19. Hello, Im kinda of a computer enthusiast and I would recommend to you build a new generation computer. Since you dont want to change it for a long time. go for ddr3 motherboards and i7 or phenom II black edition new cpus. I would not recomment gtx260 or 9800gt they both are fail gpu that were replaced ultra fast by nvidia. 4870 beats gtx260 and is cheaper 4850 beats 9800gt and is cheaper Depending on your money I would recomend 5870 thats a badass gpu but still overpriced depending where you live. The best cost/benefits card you can get nowdays is the 4890. It's relative cheap and great performace. You will be able to run all the games all maxed out for like 2 years. For cpu I would recomend i7 with triple channel ddr3. If you cant afford it go phenom II black edition with dual channel ddr3. building ddr2 and "old" gpus will make your new rig become already slow next year.
  20. I'm having several problems with CTDs and other bugs using windows 7 :\ and yeah, only on ww2online.... other games go flawless my system is amd phenom II x3 720 black edition @OC 3.2ghz 4gb ddr3 ati 4870 i will try to downgrade the driver to see if it fixs
