    Neural and I are losing so much we might derank the squad.

    I'm gonna try an get on again now. Hopefully I won't get splintered yet again.

    1. Place cockpit on legs.
    2. Place generator on cockpit.
    3. Put diagonal spacer on the front of the generator, and rotate it so it's facing down.
    4. Put armor plate on the end of the spacer.
    5. ?
    6. Victory!
    excellent...

    shame I have to play more SP missions. Those are boring.

    We are sucking fucking bad.

    Two games ago we actually won, but it was for being pussies.

    It was the 2 of us versus a heavy gunner. He killed me but I hurt him pretty bad.
    He then blew off all of Chad's guns. Chad ran around and took combas's, and eventually the guy ran out of ammo and just sat there.


    We won.

    Is anyone left in the Footclan? I came back from Comic-Con and I saw maybe one other person on since then. Is there room in any of the more active squads?

    So when the power went out, it apparently killed the wireless adapter for the 360. Now I'm using an ethernet cable to a router. It may be a bit slower. :(

    edit: I'm in the lobby waiting for you to finish your fight. If I get splintered again, I blame Chad entirely.

    A direct ethernet connection to your router is slower than wireless?

    If people are joining my lobby, it's not me splintering, it's you.

    Well, I have a second router in my room that's wirelessly connected to the main router. It takes the connection and splits it between 2 computers and a server. Now, instead of my 360 going directly to the main router, it's going to the secondary router.

    edit: When searching for a squad game, it's now taking almost 3 times as long. :(

    Same thing happened to me the other day, digital. Just unhook the cables from the 360 and the adaptor and just leave it alone for 30 minutes to an hour. Then plug it all back in and go to town.

    I was able to see Neural in the lobby for about 10 seconds, then he left. I've been online for about 2 and a half hours now and haven't seen Chad. This is obviously not working.

    Shit! so thats what I've been doing wrong.

    I've been using the armor in the front with a rectangular spacer, instead of a generator, on top since I don't like having my rear exposed as much as you fellows.

    One of the guys in the Footclan had his entire mech boxed up in armor. It looked pretty cool.

    mount them underneath one of your guns.

    But that doesn't work very well for missile counters. I've found they work best when facing upwards, which often requires it being attached to the back of a vertical generator.

    Regrox, you can mount your missile counter on the back of your cockpit, then just put the armor plate on top of it. Works for me.

    I have many parts now thanks to singleplayer, so later before I do a game with Washs I should mess with my HG some more. I really need to work on its defenses.

    I remember my first HG I put online. I stuck the cockpit and generator outside, just for kicks.

    Im still around after a short hiatus, but it seems not many are left. I'll be trying again later tonight, though. If nothing goes well, lets start a list of 'dead squad refugees' whom can leave and then form some kind of new clan.

    I was invited to another clan, so I might head over there actually.

    Oh awesome, didn't realize they had two joints.

    But I'd still need space for a gas tank, since secondary generator + fuel tank is still about 80 Kg (pounds?) lighter than the lightest primary generator.

    Anyone in vindication going to be online tonight? I've got the password but haven't had the chance to join since Frendy and I have been too busy being undefeated in the 2vs2 missions :P

    I just thought I'd say: my 360 doesn't even have NAT. It has a public IP address, 209.180.104.201. I have a "business class" DSL connection with a /29 network of static IP's. So my connection has addresses between 209.180.104.200 and 209.180.104.207.

    I still have problems connecting to people in Chromehounds.

    I blame Chromehounds.

    Everyone blames Chromehounds, but these dumb issues were showing up in GRAW and BFME2 as well. It comes down to the fact that if ANYONE involved in the match, friend or foe, has a NAT that isn't open, it can cause problems, even if your connection is 100% fine.

    It's a basic issue with how live is set up, not a Chromehounds issue. Now, there are quite a bit of dumb things about how they have it setup (like there having to be someone there in the lobby to submit a squad ap,) but it isn't all the game's fault.

    So I joined some random mission, did search for battle, found one.

    I'm in the Briefing.. what is this stuff to the left of the map?

    The blue bar (has 4429/5000)
    the red bar (markoj I think 571) (green flag 0)

    edit: a squadmember joined.. do I see if there are any enemies? because I've been sitting in briefing for about 3 minutes after I hit Ready and nothing happened yet.

    That's how many occupational points each nation has in that particular area.
    If you win against humans, you get roughly 100+ points.


    Edit: It will say "Enemy" in the bottom right hand corner if anyone joins.
