    It's a typo, I meant to type 'loud'.

    Sureeeee it was... the a and u are on opposite sides of the keyboard...

    Got something on your mind?

    I guess it's my fault in a way, what with not being born perfect like all you who are incapable of making mistakes.

    Ok boys, lock me up and throw away the key for making a spelling mistake, I'm no better than the thieves, rapists, murderer, and other criminals of the world.

    Must be new to the PA forums. We like zombies and making funny comments that are usually laughed off in turn for a spiteful remark and then a quick topic redirect.

    I was being facetious.

    Year of our lord 2008, November 11, I know not where I am.

    It's turgid, cyclopean girth has pierced the plane of my monitor. It quivers there, like a shackled beast from between the stars that understands neither mercy nor sanity. Daily I see it's message engraved on my mind- the ravings of a construction given breath and knowledge of a thousand, thousand alien worlds but no tongue. It has no mouth. It has no heart. It seeks to bring the past into the present and I don't know how to stop it. I can't stop i


    So my Steam client insists that I have four friend invites and refuses to update the friends list or my group list, or even my current name. Is it possible to reinstall steam without harming my precious game data? Right now I'm just using the online community page to get to Armadeadon chat.

    Hey guys, for off topic, or tangentially related to topic, discussion come join us on IRC.

    Network is Slashnet (irc.slashnet.org)
    Channel is #paforums_l4d (although you can find a lot of us in #paforums_tf2 and plain #paforums)

    Why would we need that? We already have a Steam chat room for Armadeaddon.

    Both are good, but one you can connect with at work via Mibbit, and the other requires Steam.

    That's a compelling argument, but I mostly use the chat when I want to play.

    Anyone know how to deal with rather extreme mouse lag? Only way I can lower it is to set resolution and graphical settings to near minimum. Had a similar problem in TF2, -dxlevel 81 fixed it there but that doesn't seem to have any effect on this game.

    So once the game is released the demo is no longer functional? I can't say that I'm a fan of that decision.

    It makes perfect sense. It's a game where the primary component is online play, and the main feature is replayability. Look at how much modding and such has already happened to the game. Not deactivating the demo loses them money. Valve isn't EA, we want them to have our money.

    I use the old version of these, and they are incredible. Judging by the reviews, they kept the quality just as high with this new version.
    same ones i have, old version...i stepped on mine a few weeks ago though and broke one side off though so the right headphone only hangs on by wires sadly....

    i may try to get a wraparound logitech version to replace them so i can wear a beer helmet with them, if i do so, i will post my findings about their quality

    Well, by my understanding, when you leave the demo open, you essentially have two games, because I don't think the demo and full version will play together nicely.

    Anyway, even then, for every person that just doesn't have the money right now, I'm pretty sure that there's at LEAST 10 people that would be content to play the demo from now until the end of time.

    Not to mention that there is a contingent of people who will, through fate, time constraints, etc. will be unable to play the demo in the allotted time frame. At least on the Xbox, you can rent the game to see how its like, but on the PC side, you're out of luck if you want to see how it plays on your system and you miss the window of availability.

    Not to mention the engine is completely intact and you could just copy over the full games gcf files and have the actual game. Thus I'm sure they'll disable access to the demo when the full game hits.
