this weekend, new PCS and factory bombing...

Post  Skip19 on Mon Feb 15, 2010 8:01 pm

S!

sorry to any of those I missed on Saturday night, I fell asleep at about 8pm and woke up at 12.30am, so my apologies.

I was on last night, but my PC kept crashing and lagging, got a few Blen missions in (but no kills) and went to bed just after Dezey turned up (nothing personal mate Very Happy)

I've bought a new PC (primarily for 1.31!) but its a bare bones system so I need to wait until next month before I can get a funky graphics card, processor and some memory for it, in the mean time I'll be on and off these next few weeks (or at least while my current PC works still!)

My tier 0 bombing plan carries on, although I think my K/D in the Havoc is about 1/1 (and in the blen I think its 0 scratch ) but we hit the factories a few times, maybe we can get everyone on and do some more factory bombing this week?

let me know

catch you laters

S!

Had my fist 3 sorties of this campaign last night. Opened my account with 1 kill, and 2 deaths!

I've also had a lot of lag and CTHLs. Something is going on as I haven't had those problems for months.

I can be on during the week for the factory bombing. Although I generally can't be on much past 10.30 for various reasons that I won't bore you with! So time of the flight is critical for me.

What spec PC are you building?....man I'd love to splash a bit of cash for a new PC ready for 1.31. There's nothing like getting a new toy...maybe next year Sad

yeah, had a lot of lag and cthls too. odd?

the factory missions took around 52 minutes (take off to landing) with maybe 15 minutes or so setting up... so as long as we start early enough, we can get a misson in. I'm not getting on until 10pm some nights though Smile

its (going to be) an Athlon Phenom triple core 3000Mhz with either an nVidia Geforce 8800 GTS or an ATi Radeon 4830 (unsure yet), gonna have windows 7 and 4Gb DDR2 Ram - I have a lesser spec I was going to set up (with an Athlon 2 dual core, windows XP and 2Gb Ram) but its only about an extra £50 and I should get a lot more bang per buck!

I think.

All I have at the moment is a case, PSU and a motherboard! (that all cost me £100, and the rest is going to cost another £200) but that should be pretty good to keep me going for a few years at least, and I've had a promotion at work (and subsequent pay rise) so it's kind of covered. At least thats what I've told Mrs Dojo Shocked

see you in there!

Ah! the 'promotion' line....almost as good as 'Dad I really need the Amiga500 Batman pack for my homework' (it worked btw!)

Good call going for Windows 7 (64bit I presume) to make the most of the extra RAM. I've heard that those Phenom triple cores are actually quad cores with 1 core disabled, and with a bit of 'jigery-pokery' you can unlock the disabled core! nice.

well, after last night if its not the PC crashing, its my bloody Havoc. Evil or Very Mad

I had an argument with a tree, (luckily captured on film for all to see, once MJ works out how to use ftp Razz) then after trying to catch up with the rest of the bombers, I ended up at only 3km over the factories, which then involved my wing falling off and me hurtling into the city into a fiery death. I didn't even get my bombs off!

grr.

anyway, check out the private forums for some juicy gossip and a plan for later on this week.

S!

Very Happy
