Hello?

Is anyone still visiting this forum?

I've been waiting 3 days for somebody to post. Unfortunately, my lack of originality is my own demise. I would've posted something, but I doubt you'd want to hear about "The time we each drank a 24 and chased squirrels all over highway 440".

You got point !

I've always been here!
I think I'd like to hear that story, Kint. Though...I guess I just did, didn't I?

Apparently, we're all just waiting to see if anyone else has anything clever to say...

Don't look at me! I've been holding my own in a theological discussion at Jediknight.net, and my clever vibes are tapped.

Allright, I'll give it a try.

You know what I'd like to see in the near future? Rogue Squadron II: The Battle for Bilbringi.

They could set it in the Timothy Zahn / Heir to the Empire era. It would kick a$$. You'd get to fly with the rogues and try to foil Grand Admiral Thrawn's forces. You could play multiplayer, and choose your side. Hell, you could even go grab a Bantha Slurpy at the Mos Eisley Cantina, and have a talk with Wuher & the gang. It would have space fights instead of the planetary fighting mode of the original Rogue Squadron, and you could choose your Rogue pilot.


Huh ? HUH ????

I'd pay 70 Canadian dollars for that game, Kint! Hurry up and get started on it.

Howzabout: Rogue Squadron II--The Klingon wormhole wars? Here's our chance to see how good our puny little snub fighters really do against antimatter-driven warpspeed combat ships of the line...

Question

against antimatter-driven
warpspeed combat ships of the line...


Not to start another SW vs ST fight (especially not against the master of all posts ), but I'd like to see those ships engage a 1050+ turbolasers, 600 Tie Fighters, 96 bombers, 100 AT-ATs, 700,000 crew & 150,500 troops, 18 kilometers long planet-crackin' Eclipse Class Super Star Destroyer!

Capt'n Picard : Engaged !
Admiral Holtz : Destroy.

<grin>

Don't be too harsh on me. Please ... ?

--Precisely why we need more players at the table!

I actually played Rogue Squadron last night. I've had it more than a year, and it's still fun.

Although I, too, am at the point of DEMANDING a new Star Wars flight sim for the Nintendo 64! Is there a reason that X-Wing Alliance et al cannot be downloaded into a friggin' N64 cartridge? I mean, really!

Grrrr...where's the control room?!? I demand to see the captain!

Well, it could have SOMETHING to do with how little storage space you can fit onto one of those stupid cartridges and still stay within your production budget, Imladil....I mean, if they actually HAD gone through with the 64DD like they'd originally planned, then perhaps; but good ol' Nintendo and their numerous vaporware product releases just COULDN'T come through once again, I'd fathom...

I'm probably showing my computer ignorance even further with this, but why can't they just split it into two cartridges?

I have music CDs that do this, and a PC game that uses the same solution...

I finally got my new computer set up, but haven't quite got the games thing figured out. As soon as I do, I'll cave in and get XWA on CD-ROM. But until then, my original demands still stand!

<font color=yellow>"Eeek--!"</font>

...And now I've got a stewardess to bargain with. Get me the liquor cart! Take this plane to Afghanistan! And open up a window--it's getting stuffy in here.

Wow. there are people here still.
First off, Kint, don't be workin your groove on Lujayne...we all know why 2 I think a better Rogue Squadron II game would be Rogue Squadron II: Wraith Squadron, Fly x wings, ties, correlian cruisers, a wings, y wings, shuttles. If you read the book, you know what i mean.


BUUUURRRRRNNNNN!!

Oh my god, can i actually post from AOL again? After all that arguing I decided wasnt going to keep switching between ISP's to post on a board that didnt want me, but now that AOL is unblocked, I might try and stop back more often. By the way, does anyone post on the Sopranos Board? Just curious...

Raven! Well wax my feathers and call me Squeaky! This place is actually seeing posts...

Shootist: it's called Star Trek: Starfleet Academy--Strategic Command. My comp is an Acer. It sure looks up to date, but that's about all I really know about it. I got the game installed okay, but I'm having problems working the danged starship! I mean, in the story they talk about a couple buttons on the joystick (which I didn't buy because it wasn't mentioned on the case) and some keyboard keys, then you're under attack! I'm left saying "What? Go back!"

To the idiots who designed this game: It could really benefit from a friggin' INSTRUCTION BOOK, morons!

Anyway. I can't wait to get the joystick and figure it out. They have a website, probably to help resolve stupid s**t problems like this in their crappily-designed games. It does look like fun, though...

Haven't owned the comp for very long, have you, Imladil?

You sound SO bitter, in an all-too-familiar sort of way...

It gets better. You'll see.

This thing is brand new to me, and my very first computer experience since the Commodore computers we had in highschool. Yes, I hate the thing already--in fact, I'm still using my roommate's computer to get on the web for now.

I got this computer absolutely free. My mom responded to the Y2K bug panic by buying herself a new Macintosh (one of the gay-looking candy-*** ones )...then it turned out that she could've fixed the old one by downloading a fix on the Internet. She paid to have the hard drive wiped (my birthday present), then I got it hooked up and running. It isn't connected to an Internet provider yet--will be soon, though.

So, if this computer annoys me too badly, I can blast it with my six-gun and not be out any money. You hear that, you digitial b***h?

What's that you told me once? "Have a nice swig of Jack Daniels," I think it was. Do what most of us did in our beginnings...bug the begeesis out of HELP DESKS til they fear your name and screen their caller IDs. I bet some of MY questions are in their Goofy Hall of Fame.

"Dear jerkweasels:

'what the hell kind of a ridiculously over-sophisticated ultra high-tech pork barrel piece of crap have you successfully sold the consuming public at large--on a WORLD-wide basis--this time? The cigarettes weren't bad enough? Televised political election propaganda and wartime mass public moralizing weren't enough? You have to design this thing that doesn't just plug in and run, oh no...it's this friggin' electronic primma donna contraption that is actually so fundamentally stupid that you have to tell it how to communicate with its own parts! Ridiculous! And then, hooking up to the world at large isn't as simple as plugging in a phone line--you have to get the help of a corporation to get the access and information you need to tell your computer how to even do it in the first place!"

*Gulp!* "Yum." *Glug, glug, glug. Gulp!*

"I give up on this psychotic post-industrial hogmuncher. Can I hook the monitor up to my VCR and use it as a teevee? Maybe I can stick the printer and keyboard together and use them as a typewriter. Naw, that would make too much sense.

'So anyway: fruitcake brightboy rocket scientist computer hacks! Come pick up this ridiculous beast and bring me something reasonable, like web teevee..."
