[QUOTE=dill6869;34578831]not credits, xp[/QUOTE] Ouch. Well then how do you earn credits?
[QUOTE=Dr.Scrake;34578676]yes, run the assistance tool shit thing if you have black stuff / no mouse problem[/QUOTE] Oh sweet, thanks.
[QUOTE=lapsus_;34578804]in CTF mode you can get 1000xp per cap. But yeah, 170'000 is an outrageous price.[/QUOTE] That can't be right because I just finished a round where I capped five times, and I only finished the game with 1200 something XP.

This is taking longer to repair than it did to download, what was even wrong with it
I am getting mouse lag no matter what settings I am on, and it's just this game. How do I fix this?
Why do people bother to defend when I can [sub][sub]gotta[/sub][/sub] go fast and ram my way through their base, grab their flag, and fly out the other side in .5 seconds?
So I just got a key and i downloaded the installer and ran it. Now im at this screen and at the bottom next to play it says I have to download some 2 gig patch. That's all good but its been sitting on waiting for server for quite some time now. Any ideas?
This is downloading for me right now. At first, it was just a friend asking me to play, and I wasn't having it, but I'll be honest, I've heard so much good stuff about this now, that I've got to try it.
[QUOTE=minilandstan;34579021]Why do people bother to defend when I can [sub][sub]gotta[/sub][/sub] go fast and ram my way through their base, grab their flag, and fly out the other side in .5 seconds?[/QUOTE] They might as well try. It's better than a team defending hard when it's 1-3 in the enemies favor. Happens to me a lot. Only one going for the enemy flag.
Just tried this for the first time. 7 kills and a flag cap. This is a remarkably solid shooter. It's reminiscent of the classics like UT2k4 and Q3...

[QUOTE=Rents;34578565][t]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5636656/textures.jpg[/t] I don't suppose this is a known issue? Fucking around with the in game graphics options just gives slightly different shades of grey with smoother edges.[/QUOTE] validate your game cache
[QUOTE=ktr;34575861]Both have their pros and cons. [u]Spinfusor[/u] ++Straight trajectory ++Fast Reload 1.65s --770 Dmg --Projectile glows blue [u]Bolt Launcher[/u] ++910 Dmg ++Projectile near invisible --Arc trajectory --Slow Reload 1.88s Personally, I like the Bolt Launcher.[/QUOTE] The bolt launcher is probably better, it has higher dps and the arc trajectory isn't actually a disadvantage since you can hit people up hills way easier. Also impossible to dodge.

[QUOTE=lapsus_;34578857]Ouch. Well then how do you earn credits?[/QUOTE] Credits are earned during a match, and can be spent on vehicles or anything you order with that little laser pointer gun, and go away at the end of the match. Any time you see +2000 (Flag Cap) or +200 (Flag Grab) or +whatever, that goes directly towards your credits. Experience you gain is calculated through some formula involving how well you played and how long the game was, though I feel that it has a huge amount to do with how long the game is because I spent fifteen minutes doing fuck all on a TDM match and got 1.5k exp yesterday.
At first I thought I understood why the weapons where so expensive (Obviously to get people to buy boosters) but now that I have one it still seems like i'm getting no where closer to having anywhere enough to get a weapon. Even with this 3 times faster xp i'm getting it still feels like dropping spoon fulls to fill up a pool.
just started playing, I thought deathmatch would be easy, but I can't hit ANYTHING
[QUOTE=minilandstan;34579021]Why do people bother to defend when I can [sub][sub]gotta[/sub][/sub] go fast and ram my way through their base, grab their flag, and fly out the other side in .5 seconds?[/QUOTE] Nothing quite like a pro flag block as a big fat fatty doombringer to end your speedy sanic ways.
[QUOTE=Jackald;34579532]the free to play stuff could kill it if they fuck it up and make it pay to win though...[/QUOTE] I think they've done a fairly good job of it so far. Other than the prices for weapons of course.
I wonder if anyone's modded this so that sonic music plays when you have the flag...
Guess who just got a 647 SANICS ski. And I was just a poor techie scouting our base, I was not even trying to go fast until I got hit by a fusion mortar.

Okay, I've got my key and going to see if there are some training so i can Go fast.

i accidentally clicked bloodeagles too fast and picked soldier at the start of the game here are the results: [img]http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/3831/wertl.jpg[/img]
Got into the game, cursor is missing. Got into training, everything is black, can't see shit. Still finish training. Repairing game files now, lets see if that helps.
Is there a difference between the teams besides aestethics?
