  1. Have we gotten to the point yet where Win7 gives better performance than XP? I've been clinging to XP because of compatibility with games, but I feel like there's a lot of more modern enhancements I may be missing. Note: I only use Windows for gaming, so I have no reason to upgrade other than gaming performance. If it's still buggy and causes problems, it's not worth it.
  2. The tangible product is the better experience of using one' date=' not the fact that you have a cute little apple shape on the back of your computer. If you honestly don't like Macs better, then congrats you can save money by buying a PC. I'm assuming if the OP is considering getting a Mac at all it's because he thinks it will be an overall better computing experience when he's [i']not playing the game. Unfortunately I don't spend 24 hrs a day playing WWIIOL, if I did I would just have a PC, but since I do spend almost every other waking hour using a computer for other things, I prefer to invest in getting myself the machine that will give me the most comfortable and enjoyable experience, which also happens to be a pretty good Windows machine when it needs to be. To me that's worth the extra cost, if there is any.
  3. Yeah you did a good job faking him out, he was like, "there's no ei in there". But I knew you were in there and I wanted revenge!
  4. Oh' date=' you were that guy! You started it! I was really pissed about dying to you, cause I saw you after I got your LMG friend, but I missed you and you made it to the berm, and then I missed you again and you got me. Then when I came back my squaddies still hadn't found you and I went back to the same spot and saw you in my binocs, still sitting in that berm. I was like, "You guys, he's right there!" And I was trying to direct one squaddie who was closer to you, "No, the berm in front of you! To your left!, not that one, go back to your right..." He eventually found the right berm and [i']still couldn't find you. Until finally I just ran over there and killed you myself! And my first point-blank clipped-into-each-other shot missed. You almost got me again!
  5. If you are buying a desktop computer just for the game, you will be better off buying or building a PC -- more upgrade options down the road. If you are buying it primarily to do other things like work or personal stuff and it will also be used for the game, or if you're looking for a laptop, I recommend a Mac. However, if you get a Mac, I recommend playing the game in Windows. I find the Windows client less buggy, and you have greater compatibility with things like joysticks, TrackIR, fancy mice with lots of extra buttons, a true Teamspeak client, etc. For a long time my Macbook Pro played the game in Windows with twice the FPS of my gaming rig (which had been built about 2 years earlier, but still). Now my MBP is over 2 years old and I still get around 30FPS in a big battle.
  6. Bump! Squad night tonight, come say hi!
  7. LOL you can have it if you want. I'm happy being a para grunt.
  8. I used to do the S-video to TV tuner method. It worked, but was less than ideal. The TV tuner I used was not capable of receiving 1920x1200, so it didn't capture the whole screen and the quality was very degraded. The one nice thing about the 2nd computer method (aside from not slowing down your system with Fraps) is that by simultaneously running an audio out to the other computer, you can capture full game audio with TS without creating the feedback that happens when you try to talk on TS while recording sound with Fraps. AFAIK there's still not really a fix for that. I've heard that you can do it when you have two sound cards, but every attempt I've ever made to enable both my sound cards at once has thoroughly hosed my system. If I could think of a way to get pixel perfect video out to another computer, that would be a much better alternative to Fraps.
  9. Updated drivers for my 9800GTX, so far so good. Running XP.
  10. I think I might actually be able to play in this one! Sign me up as an Axis paratroop. I might like to play a JU52, but I can't promise work won't come up at the last minute so I don't want to leave everyone stranded. And... "13 tanks" is code for "by May, TEII will be finished and we'll have Dinant fortress back," right?
  11. Aw man, I'll have a job by then. Maybe I'll bring a mouse to work and see if I can get in for a few rounds on my lunch break.
  12. Thanks for your bump, Malize, and thanks for taking our team portrait after the event!
  13. Thanks for the event Malize. It was a lot of fun. Can you post the pictures?
