  1. what game? I'm guessing IL2 since you mention trim...
  2. In PDF format from worldwideweb.raes.org.uk http://www.raes.org.uk/cms/uploaded/files/RiseofFlightPCReview.pdf or top link HERE A great read!
  3. Hey Wetmore, Well, that is a pretty old stick! I don't know enough about it to know if it can do USB 2.0 speeds. Or is it so old it is limited to USB 1.1 speeds. Maybe that explains it? Would that even matter? It does transfer data...I don't know. Couple troubleshooting steps I'd try... - Make sure you're plugged into the back of your PC (not a hub). - What happens when all other USB stuff is unplugged? (even TiR) - Are you running any stick managing software? - What happens turning FF volume down in game and up in manager? - How does the stick work with FF turned off? Just a few things to get some feedback (pardon the pun) to narrow down the culprit. It's easy to get frusterated with setting up ROF. But well worth the effort once you get there. Keep on keepin' on....
  4. Heh, you can use anything you please... ...but as an aside, you dont need to use your "login" name for your soldier name...your soldier name can be anything.
  5. Sweet! I'l look for you Sat. night! Heck, with you, me and Happy, we have half a squad already! We'll have to put something like -=WW=- in our clan box. Heh, doesn't that look like our WW logo? LOL :lol:
  6. No problem Perc, glad I could help... ALSO, your connection w/ Comcast may be just fine - there is a known issue with BF2142 where you lose connection with the EA Master Server every-so-often....its annoying as hell, and they say they're looking into it, but that sure doesnt help current frustration levels. I myself find if I play AFTER 5PM PST i get dropped alot less often, maybe you will too. Lemmi know when ya venture online, and I'll run around with ya. You can go to firends list and add Motopsycho, and add me to your buddy list...we can run around and die together....sounds like fun! :D
  7. Sorry about that Brian, being a cynical type guy, I always look for the darkside of this stuff. What I should have said is... Not spyware per se. The developer took time out of their busy day to provide the game buyer an added layer of entertainment/convenience by coding in-game advertising. It will provide advertising which the end user hardly notices, and when they do notice, it will only be in a good way. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_rolleyes.gif&key=1e8c06ab12fb541f5359109fc2a9aa78454b8063e7aa8862e992af3163d7b4b4"> No worries vS'....that wasn't directed at you... per se. /applications/core/interface/imageproxy/imageproxy.php?img=%7BSMILIES_PATH%7D/icon_wink.gif&key=940dab18e6395dabf49383a0bb376331df53e6f1880bab3f9e4e80745a8cc9ca"> You at least gave an explination to supliment your judgment - that's all well and good. No, I was refering to peeps who post nothing but "you know what I heard" and post zero facts to back it up. ... asrock... .....it just smacks of the same kinda' chit you find in today's American politics....and it annoys the crap outa' me. Thanks for the apology anyway vS, but it was not necessary :D
  8. Do NOT try and update the game from inside the game! It will just minimise BF2142 and attempt to install the patch. Make sure the game IS NOT running in the background when applying the 1.1 patch!!! If it is and you try to patch, you'll need to uninstall and reinstall BF2142! EA is now aware of this and posted it on their news section.
  9. Actually Perc, that is correct. You can only gain rank (and baubles) while playing online - then only online on the "ranked" servers. And the demo doesnt include ranks and unlocks if that is what you are playing. Think of single-player and non-ranked multiplayer servers as a place to 'practice'.
  10. Yeah, dontcha' just love those "Ya know what I heard...." topics? ....most of those end up being called "Urban Legends". This is what the Dice team has to say about BF2142 and spyware -- The only "Ads" I've seen, are the ones advertising server rentals for Ranked gameplay servers. It's not like players are getting tampon ads or something. :shock:
  11. Great game! Basically an infantry duke-it-out game, but you get to drive around tanks, APCs and Mechs!!! Awwww-yeah baby! :D (And you can fly around in VTOL troop transports and assult hover-jet things too!!) Give it a test-drive, its fun as hell BATTLEFIELD 2142 DEMO FROM E.A.'s FTP SITE ENJOY!
  12. Wringer's idea of a day at the beach? OR A new method of sandblasting? you'd think airport designers (or beach setter-uppers) would have thought of this first... ...oh well, c'est la vie :shock: :lol:
  13. Agreed, if even a bit scathing...then again, the anal-retentave members of the "UBI-Zoo" prolly' won't be reading this. I too understand their reasoning. I think it even mentions on the website that to make recognition easy they gave the bad-guys 3 wings and good-guys two. I tend to agree with your earlier theory about the all of them being red thing based more on budget. With that said however, I really would have liked to have seen ONE red DR1 and the rest in the sky-blue with olive streaking DR1 scheme. Totally agree! The sequences were exciting enough without over-doing it. I too will be adding this one to the collection FOR SURE! S!
