you’ll be glad to know that even in your absence
willis’es are still taking place everyday
and yes, gav’s latest version has graphically crippled many
machines ’round here….but the view is spectacular! if it can handle
all the new features
suddenly, i’m awaken from a deep coma to find
LOL db, ya’ silly man.
the blinking lights was on the few perks one could use to make sure your neighbor had fired his shot and he wasnt putting up a shield (a plug, for No Delayed Defense to make a comeback), therefore not having to wait until the end to let ’em have it. another trick when encountering another worthy, yet civilized player, was to simply ask if he was putting shields up or not.
here’s a short list of my learning curve deficiencies:
i played 3 months without knowing about the “A” key
i played 1 series without knowing about right clicking on mouse
i played 1 series without throwing a hog or knowing what they did
i’ll come up with some more later on…
all in all……..non of these things are really needed to have
the beauty of the game is its simplicity
Moved to Off Topic thread.
that suxs, cuz now ppl have to log in to enjoy the pictures

O lappy….you’re just ooozing with geekiness
thanks for the compliment DB
let me take ya’ll down memory lane:
as a newbie, i constantly got man-handled and violated by these clowns:
after a couple of weeks, I was led to the main server
(like a Lamb That Is Led to Slaughter)
once there, these suckas picked up
the pounding-duties and dismembered me to bits
once I finally shed my newbie skin and gained what they called “pro status”,
I could take on and dispatch most players, except for a select few
aw to be that good again. nowadays i’m just a tad better than ordinary
is it my imagination or has the sight or gravity been changed?
it seems all my shots go short now? things shouldn’t have changed
that much for a seasoned-sniper like myself. I’m only talking about sniper shots, and not 45 deg. shots as I’ve clearly lost the sixth sense i once had.
hey laptop, i wanna see your incredible 87 seconds! in action **hint hint FRAPS**
ya cheatin’ bastage!
this application seems to be everywhere on the web too
this one comes with a disclaimer on its addictive nature, though i have to admit, would be more
addictive if the block pattern wasn’t always the same
and if the speed maxed out @ 20 seconds, it would become a true endurance match.
cuz once you hit 25..it just gets nasty
it also comes with a “youre not so brilliant if you’ve hit 18 sec!” block frenzy scale
ok, i retire
awww man, I thought you were talking about states!
Didn’t watch the super bowl.
u know those are grounds for a ban!
,,,but now I can get a better mouse or something, I still have a roller mouse!! 😮
OMG 😯 …if you keep waiting…you’re going to fossilize right before our eyes!
So now I can talk about how I hate my card……..
LOL man..lucky for you we’ve got a club already in place with plenty of members that “hate their graphic card”
have fun tweaking the settings in order to get the game to your liking

……I wonder if it’s an Nvidia thing, NP. No way you should have frame rate issues with that spec. Try setting everything to max, and check your NV control panel.
yeah, i figure the same.
if I have all the scorch settings to max, I get 5-10 FPS with very choppy game play which leads to missed shots, not seeing where shots land, and no chance to chat
In my nv control panel…. since features give a small description of what they do, I went with all options that give the best performance over any graphical quality. Thanks for the help lap top cat. I’m okay playing with my current settings (previous screenshot)….all I care about is smooth game play and not graphical prettiness.
….So, I am needing the best bang for my money 😉 I have a list made up that I can send to parties interested in giving me their advise.
PM me the list…I’m an excellent bargain hunter.
I suppose one of the first items you need to decide on is which motherboard to choose.
are you gonna go with a motherboard with a dual PCI Express x16 base so you can have the option to run one or two side-by-side graphic cards?
You should really start a new thread, something like
“Help me build my next Scorched3D gaming PC”
There’s a lot of knowledgeable peeps round here and it could serve as an exchange of ideas for anyone else wanting to build a gaming machine, either through upgrades or in your case, from scratch, with a limited budget.
Vike!!! how’da hell are ya man? good to see you’re still chugging along
ran the test, mainly to see if I can begin to figure out why gameplay here is so choppy now compared to the last version (its decent on most maps, but other maps are pretty bad)
here’s my V41.1 settings if anyone cares (dont even know what most things mean..its okay..you dont have to explain it)
with these settings I’ve had an “enjoyable experience”, but I’m sure others are experiencing much worse gameplay than I
its a good thing V41.1 helped out with some of the choppy game play
as I’ve said in the past, the minute the game becomes that sluggish to play….it will be no longer any fun to keep playing in those conditions
and would rather just quit playing all together than torture myself in that way
PS no matter what anyone says…I’ll always miss the smooth engine that was V40
hey lap top cat
i downloaded your mcbmasters mod, placed in scorch folder.
launched the game, selected mcbmasters icon, everything starts up okay but then there’s no tanks to choose from….so i hit ok anyway and get an error message….tank thing….blah blah blah
what kinda shoddy workmanship you trying to pull on us?
i wanda why this poll is only @ 19 votes while the old one got to a whopping 35 votes
i’m with the NO’s for reasons already stated (mainly the anticipation factor)
plus…i miss seeing those folks that would raise their shield last minute but ended up not firing because they cut it too close (ohhhh…..the comedy)
well said Ash
best thing to do might be just to play when you see a room full of buds.
those same folks you’ve grown to trust over the years.
im sure gavin and co. are working on a way to keep the “lameness” down to
