FFS. Can't get the game to load on my PC.

I get the Valve logo jingle but see no man with Valve in eye and then the game crashes to desktop.

Maybe I haven't got the latest NVidia drivers (I only updated them a couple of weeks ago). Can't be arsed to do it now.

System:

Intel Q6600, 768meg 8800GTX, 4 gigs of ram.

Bit of a long shot Ono, but a guy at work had a similar problem. The solution he found on the net was to start the game in windowed mode, and then when it's up and running on the main menu screen, change it back to fullscreen..

Worth a shot at least.

I really enjoyed it. I love the 'cartoon' aproach and the manic gameplay. I have not played TFC for years, so I cannot compare the two.

BUT - Peggle (part of the Orange Box) is ACE! :P I even bought the Deluxe version :P

Can't wait for Portal too!

I caved in and bought the orange box. Looked quite good value considering I don't have HL2 or anything like that on the PC, I remember buying the 'extreme' Half Life set back in the day brand new and sealed at the car boot sale for a tenner! (The 4CD one).

Aye - I caved in - I already own HL2, so I believe I can 'gift' it to someone...

Did you get this as part of the Orange pack or is the standalone version available now?

I played a little while, so confusing but I'm sure I will get used to it when I have more time

LMAO.

Forgot how brilliant playing as a Spy was When you do get had by a spy though the paranoia really sets in and I was killed a few times by team just for dawdling behind my own teammates

Graphics are actually brilliant. Not overly convinced by the photomode as it seems limited.

Fantastic game. Once I get use to the maps it'll be even better

A few snaps from last night.

Getting to like Sniper as well now, although my stats say I have had most kills from Heavy Weapon Man.

Had my first go of TFC in about 5 years this morning.

Quite like it so far.

On the negative side, the lack of Grenades means it's very hard to take out a SG in some classes.
On the positive side, the lack of Grenades finally puts a stop to conc-ing mania. I mean, on TFC1.5 I've seen a flag collected and planted on home base in 2 jumps by some conc jumpers. That's just wrong


Anyone care to give me a quick two liner as to how the Engineer has changed? I looks like there's more than one type of SG (aside from the upgrades). Or perhaps I'm mistaken.

2-Fort still rocks - even better now with the cover over the bridge - no longer such a sniper frag-fest
