Up and Coming quote:

<hr>EDIT ---
Well, as Warman so politely reminded me, I forgot to include links to our own file area for the download...silly me. Here's the patch; and here's the demo.<hr>

Seeing as the multi-player demo is now the second most played online FPS, it makes sense to add this forum. I imagine this game will be huge once it comes out. It may even be bigger than Counter-Strike (no flames, please; just an observation). It's got great variety, as well as a massive amount of depth to the game. If you haven't tried the demo yet, go here and follow a mirror to get the demo, as well as the patch. I mean, how many demos to you see get enough attention to actually get a patch, due to the sheer amount of people playing it? The final game has gone gold, so you can expect it in stores within the next week. Also, with the patch coming out just a few days ago for the demo, I imagine there will be a release patch not too far in our future, as well. That's just a guess on my part, though. Release date of September 11, 2002 (if that's not ominous), according to Gone Gold

Heh, I've seen comments ranging from "you're a moron if you think this game is fun or worth your money" to "OMG - this game ownz CS". I personally have been playing it non-stop (time permitting) since I downloaded the MP Demo a few weeks ago. The only problem I've had is finding a game where people are actually trying to defend the island rather than just hoping in the closest vehicle and having fun - granted I find myself wanting to hop into one of the tanks and traversing the island from one end to another - they're just so much fun when handled right. One thing I remembered quickly was that you have to press 9 to open the parachute when you bail outta the plane. Can't count the number of times I did a 10G nosedive into the ground *SMACK*

This game plays similar to tribes, all though the vehicles are a lot cooler, and I think that wake map is larger than any tribes map I've seen. Its got a few quirks to it and the infantry weapons are kind of goofy. This is definatly one that is going to be better with large organized teams.

I have heard rumors that the infantry weapons got tweaked a little with the new patch making them work better. Haven't had a chance to find out though since the night the new patch came out all the 1.1 servers were full and over half the servers still hadn't upgraded. Been to busy since then to know for sure.

From what I've heard, it's mostly the up close combat and the bolt-action rifles that people have said actually work better. Apparently the sniper rifle can actually hit from further away at moving targets now, too. I haven't really noticed a difference, I don't think. I do like the changes that I have noticed in the patch, mainly the text and in-game browser. I have been getting Gold Medal pretty much every time I'm in a game now. I don't know if I'm just playing with n00bs, or what. Probably. KaiserRoll should know how lethal I am when I'm on the other team...lol...long as he's not shooting me down in my damn plane.

Heh, So that WAS you! I love how they done the anti-aircraft guns. I think they have tweaked the rifles. After shooting down Anthos' plane and watchin him float down to the water. They are definatly dangerous for quite a distance now.

I just wish I could remember how many times I shot you down.. man..

I just want it so that I don't miss a guy when I am point blanking him in the back with my Bar. Usually when this happens he wheels around after I empty my entire clip into his back and kills me in one shot. I read in a forums on a Battlefield specific site that this was a known glitch or something and was hoping it had been fixed. Basically had something to do with hit accuracy on a moving target. This has been one of the only 2 things that have upset me about the game. The other thing is that it won't recognize my dang rudder on my new joystick. That is the one thing that I am missing from making me a terror in the skies.

Yeah. Actually, maybe you should ask the dimwit on KaiserRoll's team about how lethal I am....lol...I got called a cheater and the game's not even out...lol...

Kaiser, I only specifically recall you shooting me down twice, but that's about as many times as I got in a plane, so your percentage was pretty good .

Burn, I think that first thing is taken care of. I seem to be able to hit much better with the assault rifles now.

AAHHHHH!!!!!! I updated my joystick drivers and tried to get my rudder to work. To my surprise it recognized it right off. I then joined a game to try it out. Got in a plane and didn't move.. What the heck??? Now the game doesn't recognize the actual throttle. Dang this ticks me off.

Oh, well I wasn't counting the time that I bailed. Technically, you didn't shoot me down that time .

Burn, you need a simpler joystick...lol...I picked up a M$ $idewinder today and it works wonderful. I can actually fly without crashing now and I'm getting better at bombing targets. I almost landed on the carrier, too. Just tipped off the edge, because I forgot which button made me slow down.

Wooohooooo!!! the guns are so much better now I love it. Logged on and played one map and in no time I had turned my team around and was leading. Unfortunately they still didn't listen so we lost by something like 10 tickets. At least I can kill things with my gun now. Will just have to work more on the joystick later.

You all ought to set up a server or something before it comes out, for like, a good game where everybody isnt just trying to crash planes into people.

Also: Yes Anthos is very nasty if he gets close enough.

Yes, they are separate. The game will cost around $45-$50. As for dieing too much, that takes practice to not do as often.
