    Coincidentally, I lost interest when I realized that everyone playing except me is a friggin' expert.

    Well, there's a couple ways of fixing that.
    1. Playing against bots until you can pwn their highest difficulty, or
    2. Emulating other peoples' tactics.

    Tribes 2 has bots, and the original has mods for them (I don't think they're as good, though). Not sure about T:V.

    90% of mods in Tribes 1 don't require a client-side download. That is why you couldn't find much.

    Open up the Tribes 1 server browser and there will be hundreds of open servers, about 1/3 which have some real activity going on. The mod the server is running is part of the server listing, making it very easy to find your favorite mods. There is an excellent construction mod called ModX, run by ClanMX, which I am a member of.

    I prefer Tribes 1 honestly, but it is all player opinion.


    Quake 3, The Ur-Quan Masters, or Lemming Ball Z anyone?

    Oh yeah, PLASMA PONG!!!

    Pfft, Clan MX.

    I have beef with them, what can I say.

    Honestly, only DE would break the encryption and proceed to put code in to ban E-DoG from all the servers. Thats just screwed up beyond belief. So what if E-DoG was trying to break the clan, the clan was going to hell and that wasn't going to hurt it further. Now its just DE running the show, and so far the MX server is crap, I hope Doc whines when he can't abuse anymore.

    Tribes related stuff, disregard if it appears off-topic to you.

    Tribes related modding however is dead. There are approximately 4 different mods that are now commonly played, the rest (and the most unique) are close to dead. DUNE was a great mod not played often, the ATF clan split anyways so the ATF mod died (very good balance), and RB just gets worse and worse in my opinion. Annihilation community is really starting to suck just as much as the Shifter community does.

    So basically Tribes is defined mostly by its mod communities.

    And Modx is a mod no longer in development because DE says he can mod when he actually can't.

    That game looks AWESOME. I've got a lot of the settings up high and it still runs well. As for gameplay, it's just another pong game, except with fluid dynamics (IIRC). I haven't played it in a while, though.

    Hmm, I'm starting to miss that semi-sandbox mode it had to play with the physics engine... Now THAT was fun.

    It should still have it, unless it was changed the last few weeks.

    And yeah, it's an incredible piece of software. Fluid computation is freaking hard.

    Wow. I have the original version, and apparently, v1.3 has been out for a while! The screenshots look awesome for this version, so I'm gonna get it.

    Can't forget Gunz

    Or Soldier Front

    Or Gunbound

    All of which can be found on IJJI's site.

    Gunz... my cousin became addicted to it. Be careful!
    #
    Idiota 9 years ago
    Gunz is quite a nice game because there are a lot of techniques you have to master to compete against the best players. It's quite fast paced and with lots of different tactics you can fight with. The only drawback was the big lag some other players had, so I couldn't play properly (lag is a major issue in fast paced games)
    #
    NeoGangster 9 years ago
    The greatest drawback of Gunz is it's community, just about everyone is a flamer and if you are good you get kicked from every game. The Questmode is nice too, for a while, but the rewards you get from the bosses aren't worth the time :/

    anyone ever heard of tremulous?

    originally a quake3 mod, it turned into a stand alone open source game. it's a lot like natural selection.

    i was active in it's community for a good half-year, playing regularly until i was regarded as prosauce. good game. i would even to so far to claim it as the best free open sourced fps out there.

    Ive been hosting a server for tremulous for about a year now..... though my server is known to lag alot due to the immense amounts of buildings getting built every single game..... and in my opinion, i agree its one of the best open sourced fps out there
    prosauce?

    Now that I'm playing it again, I should tell you about it.

    Castle of the Winds is a classic RPG game.
    You won't find any good graphics, but it's still fun.
    Also, you won't be able to find the full version, but you can still have the shareware version.

    Some more info. It's a roguelike, and a damn easy one at that. And the game was released as freeware by the author, see Liberated Games for more info and downloads.

    I played it a few years ago, found it fairly fun. Not sure what I'd think of it now.

    More interesting stuff... They released the first C&C as free download (at least for now)!

    Well, I have the discs here, but if you haven't played it, do so... It's a classic.
    #
    E_net4 9 years ago
    I'm just downloading it because it's a classic. Else, I wouldn't.


    Edit: Dang, I can't download.

    This looks interesting...

    <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.station.sony.com/casualProduct.vm?Id=039">http://www.station.sony.com/casualProduct.vm?Id=039</a><!-- m -->

    I'll give my after-thoughts about it after I play. This thing comes with it's own map-editor and a really small file to download. Plus, it seems really innovative.

    Edit: What the... what does Sony Online Entertainment have anything to do with this game? And it seems that you need those 5 icons (!) in your desktop to play... Chances are I'll prolly not play this at all.

    Pretty interesting. Immediately designed three superships. Control scheme is interesting, but doesn't work as well for large engagements... more fun to just have one or two ships and micromanage.

    Okay.

    Quake Wars.

    Just played the demo. GREAT STUFF. Played as the Strogg Infiltrator (basically QW-s covert ops). 'twas filled with awesome.

    I finally managed to "borrow" Max Payne from one of my friends again. It's been so long since I played that totally awsome game.

    So, I slam the cd into the tray and install it. When it's done I imideatly launches it. Having Vista, I was worried something awfull might happen, but everything goes the right way. The menu appears, and I click new game. The game loads for a few seconds. Then it crashes! DAMN YOU BILL GATES AND YOUR INCOMPETENT VISTA!!! I pray dx10 is worth all of these compatibility problems, or else I swear to God I will make Bill Gates wish he was never born.

    Because I couldn't afford XP. Yea, that's right. The site I bought my computer from actually demanded 1500 kroner(200 euros) extra for XP.

    The site acted in a smart way, then.

    Businesses, mostly. And everyone who buys a complete computer from store these days.

    The ones who don't are exceptions. And those who pirate are miserable exceptions.
