    Will resistance have new weapons sounds?

    the jingles was what i had in mind with the 4 bars. if you listen to radio commercials for example you ll see that many of them resemble big hits. but then again they just resemble them. anyways. as a game developer they just be able to record and implement their own (better) sounds anyways. i dont want to diminish satchels work though , his soundpack is fantastic.

    Will resistance have new weapons sounds?

    not necessarily. with music you can use up to 4 bars (if i remember correctly) without any fees or permit. drums are not protected at all. so i doubt a gun shot , a fraction of a second long would be protected. in addition, how would a producer know that his gun sound was used ? guns appear in so many movies, how to tell whether it was taken from rambo, a schwarzenegger flic or from somewhere else.

    Gfx707's bunker pack 1 released!

    there is a problem though with the pillbox. i happen to find myself outside all of a sudden when i kneel close to the front window. in some case you can also run straight through the walls ... weird .. apart from that , great job

    Bis: age-old tank glitches everyone hates

    i dont know if it was mentioned before , if so nevermind. when you are the driver you will find that driving on a slope you simply cant stop the tank propperly to change to the gunners or commanders position. i find it hard to believe that you cant stop a tank on the spot even on a very slight slope while the AI driver can do exactly that just fine. furthermore the tanks and infact all other vehicles tend to gain so much speed downhill that they become virtually impossible to handle. it wouldnt be a problem if the brakes would function propperly while driving downhill. sometimes you stand on the brake all the way downhill and nothing happens ... again , i find it hard to believe that a tank would take off a ramp like a stuntcar , flying tens of meters high through the air. this is a general problem which really needs to be adressed

    Opf on xbox

    quite frankly , i dont think xbox will attract l33t nuts in anyway. most people will NOT use the xbox to play online. infact i see the xbox more like a new age board game. while pc gaming often is something you do alone , the console brings daddy (or the kids) back to the living room. console gaming has a social component as you often do it with friends , passing the controller around while the rest chats and has a beer. at least that is my experience. i just love to have ofp for my xbox because i acctually prefer sitting in my comfy beanback playing a game than sitting upstairs , on my own , in the computer room. both have their place , i love my xbox as much as my pc ... so there you have it i know i know , i m xboxs advocate here

    Ofp in window?

    yes you can , go to properties of the shortcut you use to open ofp and add -window at the end ... something like this : "C:\Program Files\Codemasters\OperationFlashpoint\OperationFlashpoint.exe" -nosplash -window

    Gold upgrade

    there is really something wrong with this mission. my problem was a little different. everytime i landed the cutscene came up i got the command to attack the tank convoy , cutscene was over and the very second i gain control again i am shot. happened about 15 times , i flew around, avoiding the repair truck but the convoy was nowhere to be seen. dont know what happened the 16th odd time , without doing anything differently i for once wasnt shot down and could complete the mission. btw , i must have been shot down as i always was in mid air , not even close to the ground and there was an explosion ...

    Flashpoint on xbox

    i expect xbox to become the more adult console. nintendo to me always has been and always will be bubble gum colors and childrens games. btw , the xbox price has just dropped to $215 US. (in europe and australia) it is goona be interesting to see how the gamecube can compete with same prices for both systems

    Flashpoint on xbox

    and again, the xbox comes with full broadband capabilities. so if you are on cable or dsl you can connect to the internet to play online, i reckon they will build in an autoupdate feature so you can get patches. i doubt though that there will be patches at all for the xbox as a console game is a finished , optimized product and you dont put it out until you are sure it is perfect. with a PC you can kind of release even a premature product just to meet the deadline. i honestly cant think of a game i recently bought which i didnt have to download a patch for after installation. imho that sucks big time , but hey , i m used to it. with a console you know that the hardware will be the same no matter what thus making it a lot easier to perfect a product.

    Flashpoint on xbox

    no , it doesnt have a mouse , but what do you need it for ? the aiming of any FPS works just fine with the thumbsticks. i didnt believe it myself at first but then i played max payne and it is just fine. unusual at first of course but i like it ..

    Flashpoint on xbox

    first of all , the controller for the xbox are just fine like they are. not too big not too small and extremly good to handle. i like the idea of OFP for xbox . the ping will be excellent as you can only connect via broadband. true, editing and making mission or scripting cant be done on the xbox but well that is what you have the pc for i dont know what and if there will be an integrated browser and i havent checked the xbobx online capabilities yet but i for sure would gt ofp for xbox aswell. simpling because it has amazing graphics and loading times. afterall the xbox is just a pc optimized for gaming. so if they get it to work that you can make your missions and scripting on pc , upload it and download it onto the xbox it would really rock and the community would surely benefit. furthermore , i dont think you necessaryly need a keyboard to play ofp....

    Need some help with 'dark path'

    can someone tell me how to skip a mission ? i ve been playing dark path , the mission in red hammer where you have to assasinate three nato officers only to find out that you cant kill the last one because it is a friend. anyways , whatever i do i end up either being brought back to the main menu or , after the cutscene i come to the dark path mission briefing again .. it is terribly annoying as my saved game of course gets deleted as soon as the mission briefing comes up or even as soon as i get sent back to main menu. it is extremly annoying. while the mission is a piece of cake it still takes ages to get from one point to the next and i really dont feel like playing the mission for another 10 times !!! please !!!! help me !!!!

    Commanding a tank

    i think everyone is experiencing those command problems when they play the tank missions for the first time my advise is , use the mouse to tell the driver where to go if you are not in combat. you can even bring up the map and left click on it and the driver will go there. the arrow keys come in handy though when you are in combat. use them to change your position and avoid being hit. the suck when it comes to navigation but in combat they are essential for your survival. hope that helps a bit

    hm , and i thought OFP was rated MA , 15+ .. i m either mistaken or someone should tell your parents what you are spending your time with. you know , the funny thing is , you wouldnt dare telling me what you just did straight into my face. you prefer to hide behind the screen and be a pain in the ass. well , i couldnt care less.
