I took my notebook to a friend and his 50" Plasma-TV and his HDMI-7.1 Reciever/Amplifier

I envy you.  The WiH intro on that.... damn.

Hell, modding this game seems quite easy, so try just the SCP, if not WiH!

Really. Buy a HDMI-ready computer + big screen (and probably a 5.1 or 7.1 home-cinema) and play your games on it. I'm gonna sell my 24inch monitor and take the damn 42inch LED-TV instead. It was just so awesome :shaking:

Whats all of this together when you buy good quality? 3000 bucks?
It's worth the experience! :D

Just mind the resolution. Big TV's with bad resolution make games look bad. Also very high resolutions make games play slow.

Exactly!  You need to try to find a balance between quality and performance before you should try the big screen TV thing.  Otherwise, you're just wasting time and effort for something that looks bad or not all that great.

My monitor is 26", it has a resolution of 1920x1200 and it can double as a television because it has a seperate port for a cable or connection to other forms of TV. I find it to still be sharp enough with a big screen, yet the resolution isn't killing my games to low FPS. Instead of being a TV which can work as a decent monitor, this is a monitor like others, but which makes a rather nice TV. Televisions often have worse resolution. So did I once have a 30" or so television which could double as monitor but which was only able to handle a resolution of I think 1280 x 960 or even only 1024 x 768. Things got very pixelated.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Television resolution != monitor resolution

1080p is only 1080 lines tall, my main monitor on my rig is only 30 lines short of that and it's only 21 inches diagonal.

It's not just the size, it's your distance from the screen as well.
Long time ago, you see, there was this thing called the VBB and... oh, nevermind.

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Speaking from experience a good distance from a 42" is about 6 feet.  This is impractical in a lot of situations, but there it is.

Older apartments pretty much invariably have more living space than new ones, I find. Probably due to new laws forcing everyone to have a bomb shelter on the 11th floor.

And what happens when they're below that floor?

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
You missed the point. Are bomb shelters going to work if they're on the 11th floor?

Re: BP: War in Heaven discussion
Yeah, but for a time it was necessary for all new apartments and houses to have at least one bomb shelter per floor.

Sounds like giving people a hoax-assurance. A bit like telling people to duck and cover behind a carton box when a nuclear bomb hits 5 miles away from them.

Like a seargeant I knew once said:

"This CBRN suit will protect you from any chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threat. When an A-bomb gets dropped and starts knocking over f*cking buildings this suit will keep you 100% safe."
