Nah. I don't have a fix for that crash btw.

Yeah he's just running into some straight up C++ asserts that aren't being handled silently in the release version. It's dumb as hell but, hey, welcome to PC gaming I suppose. There's not much he's going to be able to do about it other than hope for a patch somewhere down the line because since it's going OH GOD C++ it's an issue in the game.

What are you doing when you manage to get the crash to happen? Anything that you would call unusual?

It's happened when getting a new mission while in a group and while getting into a car with a group member already in it. Each time one of those things is occurring when I crash.

I'd post something on the forums complaining about a crash whilst entering a vehicle when accepting a new mission whilst that vehicle is occupied by a teammate. There's been crashes in Reloaded that have been about that - also whilst you were in a team with someone else that accepted the missio nyou'd get booted from the vehicle so what's happening here could be an offshoot of that.

Reinstalled, first time playing since early August!

- The ten theme a character limit is still in place and sucks so bad
- Still can't drop into a district without reading complaints of matchups with hackers
- So dropping cash on anything but a month long three-slot Alig feels dumb
- Still got the vaseline filter bloom and removing it outright ruins everything
- and I lost my old 60fps at all times configs (also gave away like 90% of my credits before quitting, oh time to grind)

+ Weapon balancing, real nice
+ Map fixes that matter
+ Vegas is even better than before, though prone to take off in flight, fun new physics, interesting to drive the vehicles again now that I no longer need to mega-compensate pre-emptively
+ A fast car, kevlar 3 and ALIG is still the right thing to do
+ Chilling, talking with friends while N5/P5 hunting still makes a good time of relaxed gaming

If you install the game on Steam they give you a 'CD key' which can be entered into ARMAS for 10 days of premium.

<3 + TS = BFF

So there we were, running a simple mission, when something magical happened. A car carrying two of the three mission items exploded. The force of this was so great as to rend the very fabric of space-time. Electrostatic repulsion failed, and the briefcases came to occupy the same physical space as a building.

With the items stuck there was no way for either team to drop them off and end the mission. The new overtime mechanic meant our fun would continue indefinitely. Luckily, we were already farming arrests/kills on the mission.

At first we assumed the trainees, whose very souls we were reaping, would lose interest and quit. They did this, but not before calling backup. This pattern was repeated, over and over, for a couple of hours(as well as we can figure). It wasn't until we gave the opposition leader (a green) specific instructions on how to kick his group and quit to lobby that it was over.

All told our opposition consisted 1 gold and 3-ish silvers, with the balance being made up of bronzes, greens, and mostly trainees.

I present to you, the scoreboard:
(not shown are all the kills and arrests for the multiple times we all went P5 during the mission)

Running around Joker as Nekbeardin when I can get on. My first account wouldn't let me play claiming I was too young, mid 20s really are far too immature to view such graphic video game violence. My second account let me play for 3ish minute before punkbuster kicked me for no reason. Apparently I have to update punkbuster because the version they give with the steam download is out of date.

If I wasn't able to piss off two other players by boxing them in and stealing their cars when they got out in the 3 minutes of playtime I have between punkbuster kicks, I'd dump the game. Please tell me the game is worth putting up with retarded poo poo like this.

Installing this through Steam right now! I was afraid to buy this game when it came out the first time because of...well I guess we all know why at this point, but now I'm pretty excited to jump in and die a lot. Anyone have any tips they feel a complete newbie to this game should know?

Anyone playing enforcer on Colby? Send SSeagal a friend request so we can cruise in the Seagal Wagon and cap some fools. Game is fun but it isn't that deep is it? Seems like it will get dull quickly without some regulars to play with.

So far, I've taught one lesson repeatedly. Cars do not make for good cover. Not a whole lot of advice besides that though, since I'm still figuring things out myself.

A part of this is because there is no locational damage. Sometimes you can shoot under a car and hit someone in the foot until they die. This also means that you shouldn't bother aiming for headshots.

Actually, I was referring to the nature of cars to explode or to be rammed by other cars with people driving them. But hey, I learned something new!

I agree, and wonder if I can ever get used to the changes. I enjoyed the amazing drifting I could pull off before, not just because I was the greatest driver around and also have no problem with the GTA4 PC (current patch) driving model but eh. All in the feeling. The Fresno no longer feels like the land barge it used to be, instead it's vehicle X with hitbox Y, weight Z and speed-acceleration model M.

At least the Jericho improved tenfold.

Did you seriously just post that? It's free. Hard drive space isn't at such a premium nowadays that your point becomes anything more than just laziness.
