800x 600 or 640x480 or a higher resolution.

That kinda stinks.

Anyways after playing through a level the game crashed and said my DX9 was bad. Which it isn't apparently this issue happens alot.

i updated to the new NVIDIA beta drivers and it worked.

Anyways the first game was awesome but I mostly used it just to play multiplayer which IMO was one of the best multiplayers ever.

COD2 is basically the same game with a tiny bit of graphic tweaking such as smoke and lights. Which in turn seem to drag the frames down to a totally unacceptable level for the texture qualities.

I'll play it somemore but I'm not overly impressed. ALthough this game is super full of action. There are so many enemeies and it does give you an excellent feeling for WW2. I give it a B until they fix some bugs or until I really start digging it.

Word



yeah for anyone with COD2 and an nvidia card you will need to get the beta drivers for it to work.

here be the link

Baseball games?

Postby boyroger » Sun Feb 25, 2007 12:26 pm

:-oAnyone have any recommendations for a good simulation pc game?
I have OOTP, but I'd really like to see something along the lines of Earl Weaver/Classic Baseball/Tony LaRussa Baseball, which are simulation with graphics.
One can either manage or play.

Thanks for reading.

If you feel like picking up a new addiction, buy Counter-Strike or Counter-Strike:Source and waste your life away.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.
