    How many users here have this and play it online?
    I've got it but haven't spent much time with it (I'm still hooked on Urban Terror for Quake 3).
    Do you mainly play the default gametypes or mods? I've installed Frag Ops and it looks ok, just wondering what everyone else is into.

    Never played it online, but really like Onslaught bot matches.
    I will going into online gmaing big time (well even more) once I get broadband at the end of february.

    Apparently Red Opera is good. How is Urban Terror on the RTCW:ET engine coming along? ET rocks.

    i've been playing it online off and on ever since i got it in may. by far the best multiplayer for a fps besides counterstrike.
     
  6. EP - I got Red Orchestra, but didn't really like it. It's damned hard to play, and the bots suck beyond belief; they don't do anything except sit around looking at each other. Only good multiplayer.

    :eek: aaargh... unleased can you PLEASE not edit your text to that crappy color...

    -----

    anyways... I had the game... I finished the SP... played some MP... gave it to a m8 coz I got bored...

    haven't played any mp games in ages :)

    I reckon once I get hl2 I'll be back online fragging away... or reload ET for a game or two... :cool:
     
  8. Actually, I'm doing you a favour. You see, bold indigo text is the easiest colour to perceive on a light background, so I'm reducing eye strain for you.

    Getting those community map packs now.
    Ever try the Paint ball mod?
    I'm not real interested in Red Orchestra.
    I see there's gonna be a Fortress mod for it, Unreal Fortress: Evolution. YEE YEE! Fortress anything rocks.

    EP, Urban Terror is kind of at a stand still right now. SID took a much needed vacation. No real time frame on ET:UT. I'm hoping the Q3F guys get theirs ported over to ET as well.

    I've got ET installed and have dabbled in it but I'm not a real fan of the game or time setting it's in. The weapons etc... don't really do anything for me.
     
  10. Just for you Sazar, if you really want me to stop, I will :)

    Great game, single player with bots is ok for a while, but loading Red Orchestra up for multiplayer gaming is where it starts to get really exciting (I love those ww2 sims, and probably because I'm really bad at DM). The game looks beautiful on high-detail settings :)

    About the dodgy bots in Red Orchestra; apparently it's unsupported at the moment, the dev team are concentrating their efforts elsewhere within the mod. So, at the moment, multiplayer is the only way to go.

    I got looking at Red Orchestra's website. Looks neat, I guess I'm gonna try it.

    I play UT2004/Onslaught daily. I enjoy wading, ankle-deep, through the blood of all who oppose me, then I like to have a light snack.

    I have it. It's been a while since I have played it online. I usually play mods though.

    It crashes when I quit the game (ie BSOD, reboot) and when I try to rerun it throws up errors until I reboot :eek:

    Will have to have words with NVIDIA.

    WOW, Punk you're the first person who I've heard have a stability problem with UT2004. Most stable game I've ever seen this early in it's life cycle.

    Play daily (LeGen). Some mods are good some are really sad. The mods seem to have more of a lag problem than the Basic release and the CB1 and CB2 packs.
