I love this stuff......
Feb 4th, 2002 at 9:50am
 
Well, I just have to post this.....

I remember reading somewhere on this site that one of Rad's early introductions to techy pc stuff came from his family's interest in First Person Shooters..... 

I also can attribute my interest in pc related techno gaga to the wonderful world of FPS gaming.  Visit my "clan" site at http://www.clantriad.net

Clan TRIAD is a gaming clan for us "over 30" hardcore gamers. We are based around the community and technological aspects of the games, as opposed to the competitive aspects.

......back to the real reason for this post....

One of the most fascinating things for me is the innovative minds of the techno-gamer..  The following link is just one example of gamers taking performance to the "extreme"  It also might interest those of you considering the Northwood P4.

I still love to watch the kids go at, late at night, with all the lights in the house turned off .. the monitors the only source of light. We have two PCs, and they like to find the same server, and play with each other.

Counterstrike is currently their favorite game, but when you die in CS, you sit out until the end of the game. I have tried to play it, but I don't do much except sit out. Sad Only experienced ppl seem to play CS.

Q3 seems to be my favorite game, especially 'Insta-gibs' .. one shot kills. Wendy hates when we use the word 'kill'. She always chimes in, "It's called fragging, not killing." She's a tree-hugger. Smiley

I prefer to play late at nite, before bed, when the 'Net is fast. The technology & the gfx never cease to impress me.

Thx for the links.

Maybe someday I'll run into you on a server somewhere.  Instagib+ is also one of my favorites.  When instagib+ was first released....  I was ranked as one of the best players (several weeks in top 10) on http://www.theclq.com

It is true that CS is probably the top FPS game going now.  which confuses me greatly.   The game is based off of Half-Life engine, which is a modified Q2 engine.  The gameplay of CS is very sluggish and the "world physics" are so slow compared to Q3.  I think it has more to do with the "REALISM" aspect.  CS is also infected with more cheaters/hackers than any other FPS.  If your kids are into the CS style gameplay you guys might want to check out a mod called "Urban Terror" THis is a more realistic FPS like CS, but based off of a modified Q3 engine.  http://www.urbanterror.net it's a free download and as long as you have a full version of Q3 and the latest patch you are in business.

This is my favorite game right now, and the latest beta version is due out this Friday...  ver. 2.4

So, Do you use "Radified" as your game name?????  hehe

Look for me Jondis{TRIAD} on a server near you.

Sorry for postin' this game stuff here.  I will try and controll myself in the future.   Grin

Sometimes when I play Instagibs, I'm 'on' .. a fragging monster .. and sometimes I can't hit shit (oh, the program changed s*h*i*t to 'nuts'). Not sure why the discrepancy. I know I need more practice.

Yeah, the kids like CS for its realism. They get in another world. Can't even talk to them. They don't hear anyone.

Little 10-year old Nicholas was over playing last weekend. In the middle of UT, he blurted out, "I AM A TERROR TO ALL HUMANITY!"

A 10-year old. Where do they come up with this stuff? Made me laugh my ass (oh, it changed 'my a*s*s' to 'I disagree' Smiley ) off.

I installed Urban Terror ~6 months ago, but could never get it to work. I think it was still in beta. Maybe I should try with a newer version.

I just use whatever player name is already entered. For example, little Nicholas was using the name 'Death'.

Before he left (his mom dragging him away), he asked, "How do you put a virus on someone's computer?" 10 years old.
