After playing this game over the past couple of days, I have officially changed my opinion. I like this game.

As AK1 says, the learning curve is steep if you want to use all the tricks and toys, but the potential for great team play is undeniable.

I will be playing this more and more in the upcoming weeks and I encourage you to take another look if you have dismissed it.

I have finally cracked the code to enable our server to run bots in Campaign Mode. The bots - even on Medium difficulty - are Salim Shakir-like in their ability to kill you in new and inventive ways, so it was quite fun and challenging.

So -- Campaign Mode. Bots. Give it a try.

My hope is that eventually we can get rid if the bots

I've been playing the hell out of this game for a long long time. Already logged more than 40 hours in ranked servers and more in unranked servers. I've also been seeing some of you lads over at our Austin server:

72.233.30.26:27733 Austin ETQW - Ranked

Where you will always find a good game.

Why am i not surprised that Lead put up a QW server?

Are some the the old ET guys playing like Shiza and Cygnus?

I think the only thing capable of pulling everybody back together would be an MMO populated by naked Jessica Alba's.

It is, it's just listed as ETQW server but it's VSF. Somehow the server name got changed I guess.

I played with the bots last night. They seem to have a good grasp of what needs to be done and play logically. Problem is they WONT' SHUT UP! haha. Always thanking each other and screaming for a medic. Chatty bots are bad bots!

Yeah if you are thinking of Steams first version then you really should give it a second chance.

The ability to download a game instead of loosing/scratching/Frisbeeising the CD alone is worth the download of Steam. Not counting the community features, or Id's entire catalog.

I for one hope that all game distribution goes through Steam.

well i had installed the orange box and it demanded it be used and all that. My internet went down jsut as I was trying to join the VSF TF server so I tried portal. But I couldn;t play it becasue i had no internet connection even thoughit is a Single player game to WTF!! that is why i hate steam. Preparing to start steam, preparing top load steam, preparing tio prepare to load game, preparign to start game, oh by the way did you see this new game?

fing hate it.


As fot ETQW I think there is a steep learnign curve. I saw a message from Iffy at one point other then that NO ONE talked and I had no idea if i was on wiht a bunch of damn bots or what. so it pretty much sucked to play.

Lemme know when you all play. I will not be on tongiht but tomorrow I will try to be.

Don't know for sure if it will work, but Steam does allow you to play games without an internet connection.

The message you got from me was an invite to my buddy list. The rest of the "people" there, were bots.

The buddy list is pretty nice. You can see who else is in-game and join them on the server

I start checking around 10:00 pm, looking at the server monitor and the TS monitor. Unless I've other EQ2 duties. Sadly, if I see a person I recognize on the server at 8:00, they're rarely still there later on. Friday nights are tough to get on before 11:30.

Okay, so I am installing ET:QW as I type this and I am one of the masochistic types that reads the license agreements for games. Section 3 (Prohibitions to what you can do with the software), Subsection j. states "publicly display the software".

Soooo, best not run naked thru the neighborhood holding your ET:QW box or disc shouting obscenities, or you might get arrested for violating the game license. Geez.:mmad:

I got accidentlaly locked out of my house till 11.
I finally got in and loaded up TF but I could not connect to the server. I got a "Server is using an older protocol then you (11)"

then i went to bed. I will play tonight prolly, etqw.

we still using ts? or does ETQW adn TF have decent voip?

ETQW will have VOIP with the next patch, which will come out in the next month or so. It's currently in QA testing at Activision.

I took a quick count, I think I saw 8-10 separate people in this thread that said they have the game and want to play it on OUR server. Where are you folks? Get on that thang! Give it a good workin' over. If 8 or so of you get on there, others will surely join from the public populace.
I'll set up all the PB power settings, give you all the POWER!
Make it happen all you QW fanboys!

Feedback for Hsnopi

When we were playing last night, you spent most of your time as a soldier with the GPMG. A couple of suggestions:

1. Switch to your pistol (default 2) to move faster. You move at 85% speed when the GPMG is out.
2. You might try out medic or engineer with the AR. That would give you some more flexibility with mines (6) and deployables (7), I think.
3. For more on how to use deployables, check out: http://4newbies.planetwolfenstein.gamespy.com/ETQW/deployables.php
4. For medic work, check out: http://4newbies.planetwolfenstein.gamespy.com/ETQW/medic_newbie.php
5. Other than that, to prevent yourself from getting lost, here are all of the mission icons: http://4newbies.planetwolfenstein.gamespy.com/ETQW/missions.php

Just keep the icon in the center of your screen and head that way, and you'll eventually find it.

Argh. I was wondering why the stats graph was zero but I logged into a server full of players. There were some =A= (I assume Armory) guys on with me last night and I know Ifurita was there. Those bots are damned good. :meek:

I had a great time playing this last night. I'm getting the hang of it.

I have to learn to play a different game than vanilla ET and RTCW though.

In this game, you die much quicker. Couple of bullets and it's all over.

So I've been trying to temper my tendency to rush into battle or to the objective.

I've been playing at Lions Den and Austin when our server is empty.

I really want to use steam for this game because I find the in-game server browser to be riddled with problems. First off, every time to touch a filter it pulls all of the servers down again. You can't do an update on a single server to see if slots are free and searching the list is awkward. I hope they improve this.

Gasser, you can a) add servers to your favorites, or b) look under history, which will show you all of the servers you have played on. This should be a much shorter list. In the 1.2 patch, they will support caching of server lists to make searching easier.

Wanted to log and play, but since I saw all of the TF2 hype, decided to purchase the Orange Box...wrong again!!
Original Half Life 2, played on my pc fine..Reinstalled from the O box and BOOM!! Took her down faster than a sailor in a whore house.

Had some serious system errors, ended up doing a rebuild. I am going to have to wait for a vid replacement card, because I do not want to go through this crap again. After the newer card is installed, I hope to see y'all on the server.

I really want our server to get a constant crowd. Maybe we can plan a mini fog this weekend?

Anyone interested in doing that?

.....and has crashed on me twice since upgrading. No crashes at v1.1. May want to hold off. :mad:


EDIT: I am using an ATI X1900XTX so it appears that others are having the same problems with X1950, etc.

Well, the server has NOT been patched yet, but it will be before the weekend; probably tonight -- I'll post it when it happens.

There seems to be a couple work-arounds for anyone with the ATI card crash-bug:
1) turn off Triple Buffering and disable Catalyst AI or, oddly (and more simply),
2) rename etqw.exe to . . . something_else.exe, e.g. ET.exe

Not being a doomsayer, but neither of those worked for me. Also, a lot of people are reporting more lag, graphical quality reduction (from the redone shaders I would assume), and other play issues that weren't present in v1.1. Just FYI if you are looking into an upgrade.

If you bought the game through Steam, it will.

But even the DVD version does have an update program thinger built in. You may need to manually trigger it to start though.

Ah, gotcha. When firing it up, it tells you whether it's up to date or not. I'll spin it up tonight and pay attention.

Sorry to hear that, Hicks -- cuz the server has been patched.

I would think folks that turn off triple buffering and AI would be getting increased lag from just doing that.

I predict a 1.3 patch in our (near) future . . .
