Another Jaw that's dragging on the floor
« on: April 13, 2007, 12:04:28 AM »
BSG is possibly the best thing that ever happened on television history and my favorite show/movie of all time.

And some time ago I was like, man, would it be awesome to have a BSG game flying them vipers in the BSG storyline.

Well, I had read about a BSG game in the works on gamespot, but I had totally forgotten about it till someone in the Star Wars space combat gaming club I'm in posted about the release of the demo.

I downloaded, i've been playing it, and WOW. I mean, it is amazing. The graphics are spectacular, the gameplay is amazing (flight dynamics specially) the dialog/chatter is the best I've seen in any game so far, truly immerses you into the game and storyline.

I'm addicted to the BSG show, and now, I'm addicted beyond anything to this game.

I truly wish the best to the BtRL Crew, you are doing a fantastic job, I'm sure you must get this a lot, but you are awesome, the game is awesome, and thanx for doing this for all of us BSG fans to enjoy :)

Looking forward to further developments, and heck, to the full version itself.

And go Buck! I got trained by Starbuck, how awesome is that? :P

Great stuff, keep it up.

It's awesome to almost "hear" the enthusiasm in his voice, based on how well I can relate. This game frakin rox! And the thing is, I'm not even on the Alienware right now...nope, I'm on the old desktop. I mean, that's a P4 2.66GHz, 2GB RAM, with a 256MB PCI (not PCIe) NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500...so not all that great. Now, as with FS2, I've had to draw down to D38 instead of Open GL...but good grief...I'm at Very High detail and this thing is like butter...I was getting dizzy playing with the bots in the Multi-Asteroid Gauntlet...it was frakin righteous! Thank you!!!!:cool1:

Directx is disabled in the demo, game's overriding the setting. FS2 source code doesnt support it well, that's why.

No way? Shows how much of a Dx pro I am!:hoppingma  So then, I'm actually in OpenGL when in the demo? I check the launcher and it was still config'd the same way I have it in the FS2 SCP, with D38/1024X768/...etc. Strange, but gnarly...bcuz it still looks beautiful.

Yeah, we tricked everyone of you into thinking it was Dx8, but it is overridden... it uses OpenGL, no matter the selection in the launcher.

what?? :hoppingma













:biggrin1:

linkie for missions: http://www.game-warden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3623

a couple are a bit tricky, tho. they're text when clicked on, so, to save right click-save target as then remove any underscores and add ".fs2" to the end and select "all files" rather than HTML document. once saved, unzip then place them in your Data/Missions/ folder. if the folder's not there, create it. atleast that worked for me

But in FS2, when I leave it in OpenGL, it sux...poor framerate, especially in a fight. As soon as I revert to dX, it clears up nicely. So why would the OpenGL work so much better on BtRL? (And granted, this is only a valid discussion with respect to my desktop...the Alienware lappie is just beautiful no matter what I throw at it, but it's only a 17" screen, so I tend to play at the desk more often).

I never gave you guys a shout out either.  Thanks for making me less productive and turning me into a 7 year old waiting for Christmas!  Actually, I'm hoping the full version will be out before Christmas but I know, I know, it'll be out "when its done!" :D

Another bump!
Still haven't beat the demo, though. Them thar Raiders are some squirrly buggers! Can't play this weekend, though. Busy with my Sons.
