...now the machine-gun doesn't do much damage. Never will... but it fires pretty darn fast, has plenty of ammo and each and every hit on an exposed area has a chance to knock something out.

No it doesn't, because items have hitpoints (10 per), it still makes MGs useless. Even with every bullet hitting for 3x (internal hits can do 1/2/3x dmg) it takes 83 MG rounds to knock out a single untouched item.
Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

And strap 6 MGs to a Spider each with a ROF of ~25 rounds/second and what do we have?  Mech swiss cheese.

<Axem>   did anyone catch jesus' birth certificate?
<Nuclear>   and jesus didnt actually give the 5000 their fish...he gave it to the romans and let it trickle down
<Axem>and he was totally pro tax breaks
<Axem>he threw out all those tax collectors at the temple

Esarai: hey gaiz, what's a good improvised, final attack for a ship fighting to buy others time to escape to use?
RangerKarl|AtWork: stick your penis in the warp core
DarthGeek: no don't do that
amki: don't EVER do that

The Spider or its target?

 
The spider :D

And Mr. Spidey only gets 4MGs, so while that might* work on a 'nothing but an AC20' torso on an Atlas**, the guns are useless against a crit-packed torso that doesn't have a big single item to take all of the hits.

*supposing my couldn't-be-bothered-to-check dmg rate for MGs was right (0.04/shot)

** supposing here that when you're sitting there plunking away, he laughs so hard he can't aim to blow the spider in half :p

Some news from No Guts No Galaxy (unless you listened):

1. Trebuchet to be released later this month.

2. TWO new maps (as in not night conversions)! One of them's Alpine something, the other is to be a desert-like area.

3. PPCs will be able to counteract ECM. (One burst = ECM brought offline for a five second window.)

4. Artemis FCS will receive a buff (the specifics I don't know, I wasn't able to listen to that part).

Unrelated, I said "screw it" with my Shortcat, I'm sticking to one of my AccurCats (2LL/2ML/2 Streak-2 or 3LL/2 Streak-2). Does quite some damage, but I prefer using range more often (I don't use it for bread and butter damage, I use it for "surgical debuffing"). Strangely, I tend to find myself killing Cataphracts more often than not for some reason...

So... "Pretty Baby" ... lamest name for an awesome ever. Also, featuring a "I'm a wanker! SHOOT ME NOW!" paintjob. might as well just have a neon sign hovering over it.

also... "MASSIVE BIG FPS IMPROVEMENTS!" my ass. dropping settings to low helped push the game over 60 fps hilariously. with medium settings i get a ****ing 12-15fps slideshow.

Have you considered getting a card that does not suck?

Mine's over five years old and runs the game at medium and high settings gloriously fine.

Mh... actually it is that old and was only a midrange card to begin with. It will still run less demanding games, but recent games that actually make use of recent hardware...  don't expect miracles.

Even looking at an older Benchmark like 3dmark 2006 the Geforce260 sits at a score of about 8000, while a modern highend card like the HD7970 comes in at about 25.000. In newer benchmarks it will likely get worse. Furthermore...  your 260 probably has a pitiful amount of video memory compared to modern cards which means that modern games that actually need that memory will just run terrible.

Cryengine3 has ****ty ****ty ****ty cpu optimization on dx9, so that's probably what is killing your fps. When/If they ever do dx11, performance should not suck for everyone with a half-way modern computer. And it doesn't even mean you have a bad cpu either, I get the same frame rate on an i5 as an otherwise much weaker fx4100, same res, same gpu :nono:


As for this patch. K2. 4LPL. 300xl. Nom Nom Nom.  :lol:

And Pretty Baby is the ****. 90kph. erppc, 2mpl, 3srm4. zoom zoom pew pew zoom zoom. and that torso twist range is delicious.

Yup, Flamers, MGs, and LB-10X AC's are going to be cool crit-killers.

PPC EMP, NARC signals to all friendlies, and OH MY GOD THE TREBUCHET.

Aw yeah, this is why I bought my PPC Catapult!

Though I'm pretty sure that my custom Centurion CN9-A could still take it in a stand up fight.

 
PPC effect is so much fun. It has dramatically ramped up the rage from the dwellers of the SWU. 'Wahh. I disablesded the Atlas' ecm, why you no shoot him lots with lrms!1111'

And with the AC/20 HP bump, I've got maximum tear-bottling capability for 80% longer. :D

Now, if I could just find more than one match in five tries on Mister Stomp'n'smash.


*e* and now they pulled the matchmaking. Amazing how after just a dozen or so matches with competent team mates and a delicious absence of trialers and SWUers on either team, my ability to put up with their suck and try to herd them has vanished. Le. Sigh. :nono:

Been playing this a bit again. It's still borderline unplayable on my system (Just like Crysis 2 was), but a lot of fun nonetheless. Looking forward to playing this properly once my new PC is complete.

Switched my K2 to double heat sinks (incredible performance and weight boost), and slapped in a pair of machine guns and flamers to pester anything that gets too close. It's working a lot better than before.

And Alpine is a very fun map to play.

I really wanted to like this game. I still want to like it.
I just don't like it.

Will check back again in a year. If there is still a community left by that point. (what a waste of 60 dollars)
