Thought this was worthy of a post.

A Cheers to Peter himself, and the fans that followed his awesome work, and dedication to the character known as "Chewbacca"

Rest in Peace, friend. May you forever be One with The Force.

I'm not amazing at the game, either. But I get some good matches here, and there. Ive learned a lot of people who are 'good' in this game have good memory of the maps, and very good situational awareness.. pretty steep curve to tackle, but comes pretty naturally over time.

I'm not sure what your sleep/wake schedule looks like.. but my usual days I play quite late (12AM-6AM EDT) - though, I play on my days off as well, throughout the day.

Who's ready to dust off the ol' ban hammer?

Not sure I can embed a twitch-clip link, so Here You Go

Figured I'd give something for you (psilocybin) guys to jam to.

How about some new, old sound for you old heads. ;)

Lol, funny....

Just watched a video the other day where a fella was rummaging through some auction items (bankruptcy auction for NCIX tech business)
Guy found an ol' copy of XP sitting in a box;
 I joked how I'd love to run XP again - find some custom updates for security/safety's sake.. good to go. :P

cheers brothers

doing pretty good

working, life, some music, some good beer, the usual

Sounds nearly exact to my current situation. What brews you be drinking on, lately? My *usual* beer is a 19oz recently released (the size of can, not the brew) from a local MI brewery (Founders) - Their "All Day IPA" << Easy going..crisp..not too strong, yet not too soft in ABV.. Gets the job done for cheap. Not to mention my 20% Employee Discount at my Liquor Store ;)

getting old


is there a cantina forum? i need access if so

If you ask, you shall receive... I think Optimus, or H need to do this, though. Lol

i have the original GR and expansions

may need to get a copy of graw to play, no optical on this PC to install my legit copy

H just set me up with GRAW - I can't speak for him, but I'm sure he could help you out.

would be great to play again with everyone

any teamspeak info?

need to grab a mic also, that broke ages ago ha ha

Agreed! - Been too long.. gonna have to get Alpha in here.. He knows the forum is back up - new job though, so I'm not sure how busy/free he is as of late. TS info should be somewhere in the forum, though. Along with the Hamachi VPN info to connect to the "not always up" GRAW server.

No idea. I thought someone said it was available on Stream but that there were issues with it.
Let me see what I can find out.

Much appreciated. :)

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / GRAW Purchase..?
« on: February 20, 2018, 12:55:35 AM »
Any of you fellas happen to know where I could purchase a digital copy/key for GRAW?
I've looked around for about 15 minutes with no luck.
Found an Amazon digital DL, but they were "Currently Unavailable" .. The rest were hard copies.. which I unfortunately cannot use - considering I've no drive to put the disk in. Case doesn't even support one.. I could pick up a USB one but I don't want to have to do that for 1 game. Lol > Call me picky.

Wouldn't mind getting back to my roots; play some of Fish's maps that I've not tried yet. Though, it has been quite a long time since I've even played the game, in general. Time to brush the dust off.

Anyone ever mess around with this one?
I recently picked up the Starter version, a couple weeks ago (very slow character unlock progression); been having some good times with a few friends the last week. Feels a lot like the Tom Clancy games I remember.. although much quicker game-play, and more competitive than GRAW.
Still fun if you're just playing some casual with a group of friends.

Free weekend if anyone is interested in messing around with it. They do have what are called "Situations" and "Terrorist Hunt" of which you can play Single Player (or with a friend, maybe 2). Highly recommend if you like something fast paced (though can be slowly played for different defending/attacking results)

Let me know if you pick it up - I'll PM you my UPlay account name.

Did the software ask you to resize the image at all? I haven't tried uploading a custom avatar. All I remember setting up is a max upload per image size in kilobytes, not size. All the avatars I put into the forum to choose from should be 150x150 or smaller.  Yours displays at nnn x 150 right now, so it either gets scaled in the CSS or it was resized once assigned as avatar. Not sure if this board comes with the necessary code to do that.

It didn't ask to resize - but trying to upload the original photo file, cropped once before upload; gave me something along the lines of "The File Size is too large" (< not verbatim, but similar) so you're definitely correct on kb file size limit.
I cropped once more, and for some reason would upload flipped to the right..
Gave it another crop on a resizing website, saved the file.. still same issue. Only after I'd went back and cropped the original once more to as small as I could get it with Windows (without cropping my face or the brew out) and seemed to have worked. When I get home I can check the exact dimensions for you. But It's definitely not 150x150 - so there seems to be *some* resizing going on with the CSS, just maybe not executed correctly/fully?

Meanwhile, we are about to move to a new hosting setup with different features, and there's a good chance we'll be down for a few hours to a few days when that happens. Should all be done before March 4

Awesome! Hope the features to come will improve our ability to build this place back up. I would definitely not mind seeing some old, or even new faces. Maybe in time, I'm sure. Although, I know all of you old folk are quite busy, usually. :P

oops - started to edit your post with my reply. The perils of admin rights and not having a clue :)

Lol, I do this on my community/streaming Discord server, all the time. I know how you feel, heh heh.

What exactly is wrong with that avatar up on top behind the menu? It's your own, nobody will see it there but you. You know your avatar and what's in that glass. Looks fine to me here in a thread, where it is being displayed to others.

You have a great point - didn't think about how it isn't shown to others.
I'm just picky, and it looked slightly 'out of place' considering it was being displayed behind the nav header/menu. Granted, it doesn't intrude or anything since it's at the bottom of my pic - Just assumed it might be a padding, or space limitation issue for the avatars; rather, lack thereof.

I could easily ditch the entire avatar from the header of the forum index, although having multiple accounts here, I actually like it, as it shows me who I am.

No need! I only brought it up because I had (knowingly) tried to use a larger than avg picture (generally speaking); to be used for my avatar .. and realized the picture I had used didn't fit all too well after applied. Brought it up here thinking I might have been the only one to experience it so far. :) cheers
