Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'll add caspian and firestorm tdm to the list. Be nice to get some dudebros on tonight to jumpstart the dome. Don't think I can handle anymore of those stupid 200-300% ticket servers. Wish there was a way to just find official DICE servers for when theres just a few of us.

    I was having a "getting angry at videogames" kind of night last night. I am going to pull Metro Rush out of the rotation. Tempted to just go back to straight CQ. TDM is fucking boring and stupid. And I think I may add a server message that says "No MASS Dart or main spawn camping if you jdon't hold all flags". Booted a dicklick chopper pilot for doing just that.

    I told everyone what would happen if they started doing the mass dart. 46 and 8 later everyone agrees to stop.

    I like the tdm map we have. I dont know if I like the rush though. Maybe we should ask the regs what they want.

    I made a pure CQ list for tonight. No firestorm or any of the CQA maps. Included everything else.

    Also made Muffin and Gradient Admins for most glorious abuse of power.

    And yeah, i'd like to know at least one other TDM map that isn't shit to add. I think maybe CQ with a hint of TDM would be ok. Mixing in 2 rush maps at random just sets me up for major annoyances.

    Firestorm is a decent tdm. Probably keep from making any more admins though so it doesnt become a big cluster bang.

    Added you.
    What's the server info for the 360? Or is it just the same server as in the OP? Can you play 360/PC on the same server?

    CALL TO ARMS.

    Seriously, PC Bros, ASSEMBLE.

    Teehee, you said ass.
    Well, I figured out why the Raffica just fucks people in the butts now.

    It does do 25 damage. At 900 RPM. At less recoil than the semi-autos. And it has a semi-auto mode. And the largest magazine of any handgun.

    fuck
    So I take it this is the new gun I need to whore then? That'll be a nice change of pace from my overused G18 Silenced. No one should ever have over a 1000 kills with that gun like I do. I feel kinda dirty every time I look at my top guns because of it. :(

    @Archsorcerer added you.

    Yeah yeah, so unbalanced, PC so good. At least if it wasn't competitive it would be a cool feature that way bros could play together across both. I know, almost nobody does it.
    Just thought I'd ask, you never know.

    So what's the 360 server info then? Gots to add it to my favorites.

    I think it's more a fact of that you are much more effective with mouse and keyboard than with a controller. It's not really an issue if the player base is separated but I guarantee you that there would be 360-only servers up within minutes if they introduced cross-platform play. It just wouldn't be any fun to play together and the cost wouldn't be worth it for EA.

    But why the holy hell no console maker so far have support for keyboard and mouse is beyond me. The PS3 supports them just fine but no game does.

    I could see that they would want everyone to play on equal conditions maybe. If they don't include mice in the console bundle it would give an unfair advantage to the kids whose parents won't buy it for them.
    Or something?

    Including a cheapo mouse that they already basically give away + cheapo keyboard that they already basically give away == problem solved. Then they can market fancy versions and make even more money.

    With the Xbox, Microsoft did everything in their power to make it not look like a pared down PC.

    Dunno if they're still trying to do this with the 360.

    PS3 supports KBAM but the developers have to actually implement it.

    That sounds like a product SKU disaster. I bet they don't do it because, regardless of the hardware you include, some people just prefer a controller over KBaM, and said people would get destroyed by KBaM users.

    No, I completely understand about the control you get with KBAM. I'm just saying friends should be able to play cross-platform if they want to. I'm not saying the regular servers out there now would have to change, just give the option to private/rented servers to allow the support so we can shoot eachother if we want to.
    And DREAMCAST had lots of KBAM support, thankyouverymuch.

    Plus all of the mixed-platform servers would have to be 24 players max, so most PC players would steer clear.

    I can only imagine what that would be like in BF3 where you don't have any auto aim. You have people just wildly firing in someone's direction hoping they are going to hit something and you, actually being able to aim.

    I recently read about intercepting calls from a game to Direct X,
    then checking the render call for an enemy player
    then determining his position on my screen.
    In most cases, that player will be behind world geometry and will either fail z-buffer checks or be covered by subsequent draw calls.
    But before then, I can create a new draw call to DirectX to draw a box around that screen location.

    Server is called The Angry Dome. It's an East US server. So just set your filter to look there and than search the list.
