  1. I'm having problems with Punkbuster kicking me off all CoD WaW servers that use Punkbuster. I have updated Punkbuster a few time but it still happens. This is the error I recieve:

    RESTRICTION:Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe

    How come thats happening?

  2. I'm using my spare keyboard ATM, and it sucks. You can't type fast, and they keys are sticky. The problam is my old keyboard. I had to switch the the spare because my old keyboard was starting to type muliple letters. eg:

    If I typed "S" it would come up as "S/"

    "Y" came up as "uy"

    "T" came up as "rt"

    "A" Closes down Windows live messenger windows

    "," comes up as ",."

    Whats wrong with it, because the spare keyboard sucks ass.

  3. I think I know exactly what you're looking for. You want to press B (with the default controls). This will toggle the camera physics. They're either supposed to be on or off.

    This should stop the camera from moving.

    Are you sure it's B? I have V1.1 of the CamHack, and B doesn't do anything. In fact - Camera Physics isn't even listed in the commands on the download page

  4. I have the Cam Hack and the patch for Vista, and it works fine, accept I can't lock the view. So whenever I drive fast, the camera moves backwards. I've tried the default controll for it, and it makes something come up saying " MODIFIER: TRUE" but the camera still moves back.

  5. I want the cop uniform but I really can't be assed to date Barbra to 100% for it.

    I've tried editing shopping.dat to put it in Binco Clothes Store, but if I try to but it the game just freezes. It' probably due to the fact that it's a full set of clothes - not seperate. What files should I edit to make it so that the Cop Uniform is automaticly in your wardrobe at the start? (ie. Where do you find the part that lists which clothes you where at the start?)

  6. I have a £40 (About $66) budget, and I need to get a new (gaming if that makes a differance?) graphics card because the one I have is quite frankly...crap.

    So whats the best Graphics card I can get for £40, and is it worth buying it to replace a NVIDIA Gefore 7050 / NVIDIA nForce 610i?

    My brother has a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS, (They are worth about £18 or $30 at the cheapest from Amazon) and I would like to get one that's better than his (because he'll get mad :lolbounce: )

    Here are my current PC Specs, because it would be better if I didn't have to buy any other new equiptment, so I want to know first hand:

    Packard Bell, Windows Vista Home Premium

    Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz

    3.00 GB RAM

    32-Bit Operating System

  7. Bethesda today confirmed that there will NO fifth installment in the series. At least for quite a while.

    Today? Source?


    Oh just found it. Funny that they announce this the day I start a topic for it. Epic Fail on my behalf :P

    Anyway they said they are working on a new TES game but they arent talking about it untill theyre nearly done. So probably not in 2010 then :(

    No, they're not even working on it, dude.

    Opps misread it... again. I'll just stop reading things.

  9. OK 2 things.

    1. Who reported his post (whats wrong with it?)

    2. Don't stop driving. Just drive round the block repeatidly untill there is just 1 gang member left, and then just run him over. Just repeat that accept for the one by the ally where you can run them all over at once.

  10. It looks pretty boring to me. It's a flight simulator, sure, but I don't know who can sit there and pretty much do nothing, apart from maybe hitting a few buttons and gently moving the mouse, for even 10 minutes. I'd throw myself out of the window.

    One of my old friends owned a similar game, showing me him taking off and landing, and it was just boring. When I played, I was crashing it and landing as badly as I could, that's the only fun really.

    Yeah, I agree with you there. I want to be a pilot when I am old enough to get a Comercial License, but whenever I look at FSX, I can't help but think to myself "what a dull job".

  11. So I've been reading around and it seems that the a fifth installment in The Elder Scrolls series is going to be released in summer 2010. Most people I've heard from think that it will be called "Skyrim" and will be set in the Northern Tamriel province of Skyrim, altough at the moment, nothing is too official.


    In late October 2008, shortly after the release of Fallout 3, Bethesda's Publishing Executive, Paul Oughton, indicated that the series' fifth installment could be released in 2010. Zenimax, the owner of Bethesda Softworks, had trademarked the name "Skyrim" in 2006, but its relation to the fifth installment of the series is uncertain. In a recent interview, Bethesda has "no current plans" for another title in the series.

    The Fallout 3 publisher announced that the next instalment in its popular RPG series will be available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC, with no plans for a release on Nintendo consoles.

    Anyway, here is what I want to see improved from Oblivion.

    1 - Level Scaling

    Keep this the fuck out of my game. Unlike in Morrowind where you could get a high blade skill and strut around a town like you own the place, in Oblivion you couldn't. The world leveled with you, and although in some aspects this was good, overall it was annoying.

    First off, level scaling eliminates the point of leveling, because everyone and everything revoles around you, so there is no difference between attempting somthing at level one, and attempting it at level 20.

    Another thing that makes this a bed concept for an RPG, is that they didn't limit the items people got as they leveled, so by the time you are level 15, every farmer and his mum has deadric armour.

    It removed the whole aspect of accomplishment from the game, because whereas in Morrowind, some places would require you to be a certain level to get past the monsters, in Oblivion that doesn't happen because no matter what level you are, monsters advance through the levels aswell.

    2 - Limited Content

    Leveled content is another one of those features that Bethesda added to "mainstream" The Elder Scrolls at the expense of gameplay and core Elder Scrolls fans. Leveled content is completely inappropriate for a game in the Elder Scroll Series, it breaks immersion and it turns everything into a giant single-player MMO that instances everything to your level.

    Leveled stores are bad. There is no point to shopping around because every store has the same items. And leveled stores also give the impression that stores revolve around your character and that their stock revolves around your character as your characters level determines what is in a stores inventory.

    Leveled thievery is bad. Every potential robbery target is the same. Manors which are populated by rich people have the same items to steal as a shack or more moderately sized house. What determines the items in the house to rob is, you guessed it, your character's level. If my thief character goes through the trouble of breaking into a manor, I would expect to see riches and valuable items, not the same crap that's in a beggars bedroll.

    3 - Poor Voice Acting

    A team of 10 or 20 voice actors could easily produce unique dialog and voices for each character in the game and at a fraction of the cost compared to Patrick Stewart.

    As a result of the above, voice acting is generic. Many voice overs are designed to be used by multiple characters and as such, they are lacking in mood and sound choppy when linked together. Beggars are the worst example of this. When you first talk to a beggar, they talk in an old raspy voice that one would, stereotypically, associate with someone begging on the street. The minute you ask a beggar about the rumors, they start to speak in a voice of high nobility. It's shocking Bethesda released the game in this condition - how hard would it have been to re-record the rumors in a beggars voice?

    4-Better Map Boundries

    In oblivion, if you tried to leave the map and venture out of Cyrodil, you where stopped by a huge invisible wall spanning the length of the game, and were automaticly turned back. Now this wouldn't have been that much of a problam if they had made an effort to what the message you recieve for reaching the wall is; "You can't go this way, turn back."

    So what do you want to see from TES V?

  12. 1. Look into getting your money back off the tech support guy, I'm assuming you paid him for whatever it is he claimed wasn't working.

    2. Look into trying to get someone to lend you a power supply. Might be that which is cutting out on you.

    Acctully it was free (sort of - we pay 5.99 monthly for cover)

    OK, I checked in the case ealier and being 13, I decided that the best thing to do would be to pull wires at random and see what happens :bashhead: . Anyway, I found that if I unclip the wire (It's 4 wires, 2 yellow and 2 black, all bunched together) by the fan, the computer doesn't cut out - I haven't tested it with the moniter though . I plugged it back in though because I wasn't sure what it was for.

    I think somthing must be short circuiting in my computer (because my laptop is coming off of the same power and it's running fine, touch-wood.) It might just be a case of my computer is broken, and "coincidently" might be dropped down the stairs for insurance money to buy a better PC.

    *But for now I'll just go for a bath while IMing my friends. Got to bring an extention cord with me though because my laptops nearly out of power >.<. Horray for stupid teenage girls who electrcute themselves by accident in the bath!

  13. I'm using my bro's computer to write this..

    A few days ago (last Friday I think) my computer randomly crashed while I was doing somthing on the command prompt (I was changing the directory to do somthing), and my computer just froze up. In the end I had to turn the computer off at the switch. I turned it back on again, but the same thing happened while I was on some forums, only this time, the computer wouldn't switch back on afterwards - It would run for about 7 seconds (without the light coming on), and then just cut out. I had to get a techinial support guy round, and he ended up replacing the driver at the back of the PC (I don't know what it's called sorry), and the motherboard.

    After that my computer started to work again. I later ran a virus scan, but AVG detected no viruses, so I figured that it must have just been something else, and that it wouldn't happen again. But then suddenly, only TWO DAYS after the Tech-Support guy came, my computer did the exact same thing, and now I can't get it to start. Now obviouslly, if I have to get my PC's components replaced twice a week, that'll be quite ridicullous, so I need to know whats happening quickly.

    ---Other Info---

    I have just changed rooms, and my PC never did this in my old room.

    I sometimes here crackeling in the wires below my PC, but I've checked it out, and can't see any sparks - or determain which lead is doing it.

    I have a phone right next to my PC now

    My computers speakers are also quite new, and I sometimes have to rearange the places that my extension leads are to make the speakers powerlead reach.

    My AVG is quite old, and might not be able to detect a newlly created virus (if there is one.)

    The tech support guy said he wasn't too sure what had happened, but he removed all my USB leads and things, telling me they might have shorted out and caused it (but I plugged them back in and things ran smoothly for 2 days.)

    The only programs I have run are the internet, Civ IV, Oblivion, and SA:MP. My computer is about 1 year old

    So what do you think is wrong with my computer - has it got a virus, is somthing short circuting and causing my PC to break, is it a program I'm running or is my PC just knackered and need replacing? Or is it somthing else? Please give a reply.
