Best/Worst RPG you've played?

Question: Best/Worst RPG you've played?

I'm an old time D&D player. (From back when the original three book box set came out in the late '70s.) I've played a number of D&D style RPGs over the years that I've had a 'puter, and am interested in what games others play/have played. What RPGs do you play, and which wouldn't you touch with a ten foot cyber-pole?

Preferred Solution: Best/Worst RPG you've played?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

@AliMujtaba

 

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.
Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.

After seeing all the problem-related topics in this forum, I figured I'd post a "normal" gaming discussion topic. I'll start.

What I Played: World of Warcraft

What I Expected: A deep, complex MMO that would take hours of personal research to fully understand; wholly addictive game that would eat through my wallet with its monthly fees

What I Got: An easy to learn, easy to use MMO that held my hand in a good way; awful, run of the mill quests, unaddictive game that caused me to cancel my subscription after the first free month.
 

Answer:What You Played, What You Expected, and What You Got

What I Played: New Wolfenstein

What I expected: Old school look, sounds and feel, maybe some of the play from older Raven games like Soldier Of Fortune.

What I Got: Another scripted game with narrow play areas. Good graphics and fun, but no doubt why first person shooters have gone downhill. Sadly these guys can't seem to capture the simplicity of the old games in a modern environment. If you didnt know the name of the guy in the first Wolfenstein, you would not know this was Wolfenstein.

Too bad you didnt play the WoW expansions. I have played for 5 years, the game got better with the expansions. Quests were better, etc.

I've been using the text to speech system on XP for ages now, but one day I tried to play LH michael's voice, and it displays this message.

"This voice cannot be played. Please try selecting another voice or selecting a different auido output device."

I was wondering if anyone has setup their PC to play DVDs and watch them on their TV? I have a 27" TV (no S-video or component video inputs, 5 yrs old). I was wondering: (1) what all is needed to setup this scenario (DVD player, encoder card?,video card w/ S-video or component video outputs,...) and (2) is this cost feasible?, and (3) how does it compare in quality (picture,sound,...). Are their other things to consider? Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Has anyone played DVDs from PC to TV?

Well, monitors have a higher resolution than TVs, so they won't give you as good of a picture.

A DVD decoder card is the best way to go as it takes all the load off the CPU for playback and is much less likely to cause trouble. They usually have S vidoe outputs, so I'm not sure how you would connect to your television.

I doubt this is even possible, if it were though, this is against every basic security principle.

To have something automatically run as soon as an email is opened is an invitation to countless security risks.

Your intentions may be harmless but to allow that type of action on a computer is reckless suicide.

BTW, you can always hit the report triangle and request your thread be moved, instead of starting another.

Hi All,

I would need some help. Because a game of mine, Total War Shogun 2 crashes continuously at one point in the game when a turn is ending, I went online and checked out some possible tweaks and/or solutions. Most people appeared to be saying that the trick was to increase allocated memory by going into BCDEdit and increasing the memory allocation. I did this by typing the following in the cmd window after running it as an Administrator :

bcdedit/set increaseuserva 2500

The command line worked. Except, I have Windows 7 64bit, and it seems that this wasn't something that was needed to be done since the 64bit version already allocates sufficiently high amounts of RAM for running applications.

Where I need your help is to restore the original settings that were present before I increased RAM allocation.

I tried writing this : bcdedit /deletevalue increaseuserva

This didn't work because that command line doesn't seem recognised right now by my OS. It gives me an error of sorts.

Can I just write something like
bcdedit/set increaseuserva 8000 ???

I have 12GB or RAM.

I had noticed that my computer struggled opening some applications after doing that first increaseuserva.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S. That also didn't help to fix the game crash, so I guess double whammy for me.

Answer:Played around with BCDedit and now need help

bcdedit/enum all

look carefully. Do you see increaseuserva?
There's no need to set this setting on x64 win7! Please delete it

I found a fee mmorpg the problem is it doesn't have any type of help system at all. The webpage is half gone. Also there are enough people playing it but most are speaking other languages so I can't seem to get any help.

Just wondered if anyone has played R.O.S.E Online - www.roseon.com?

What I don't understand is how do you get spells? I trained to be a muse and I have a ton of points but I don't know how to train in any of the things in the skill tree. I pull it all up and theres a bunch of items but nowhere to "train"

Also once that gets answered I guess the next question is to find out if you put points into 1 a whole bunch of times is that better than putting a point in to get the skill then saving your other points for the other skills? I.E. should you have alot of skills with small amounts of points or be point heavy in 1 skill?

my laptop has played dvd's and cd's tell now it will not play anything but u can hear it spin when it starts then it stops

Answer:my computer played cd's and dvd's tell now

Basically two things usually. One is that the drive has gone bad somehow. Second is some issue with the software. You may look at using a restore point to a time when it did work. It is pretty safe to do.Can look at hardware manager too maybe of consider other ways to test that actual drive. Might be possible to get an idea if you boot to some bootable media like the windows 7 dvd to test or some linux cd.Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Hi

Wnaspi32.dll is a special system file for use with CD and DVD software. You may need this file if it was not included with your programs and they respond with "wnaspi32.dll not found" or a similar error message. It is only for use on Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows XP but not for Win98. It requires an administrative account. If wnaspi32.dll is unavailable, any CD/DVD drivers or other devices of this nature that are installed in your notebook may not function correctly.

It will be interesting to know which software you use. Did you already try to reinstall it?

is there some sort of file or something that tells you that a game can only be played on a PC. our house only has laptops, and i was wondering if you could make the game for laptop.

pls pls pls help.
 

Answer:How do you know if a game can only be played on a PC?

The main thing that stops laptops from being able to run games is the speed of the built in graphics. Most laptops have only very basic graphics suitable for web browsing, editing photos and typing letters. If you pay a bit more you can get a "gaming" laptop that has a GeForce or Radeon graphics chip built in, some high-end laptops are as fast as a high-end gaming desktop, but you'll pay twice as much for them. You can upgrade the graphics in a few laptops, but most of them are stuck with what they came with.

My DVD player does not support MPG files, which is the output medium for my computer's Freeview TV USB stick (Freecom).I therefore try to use NERO to burn a DVD. This works, but the sound and vision are out of sync by nearly 2 seconds after 1 hour.In NERO there does not seem to be any "audio" switches but I've tried "enable smartcoding" both on and off but with little difference in the output. The video is great; sound too, but it gets progressively more and more out of sync.I've the latest downloads from Nero and am fully up-to-date. I've tried both DVD-Video and DVD-VR formats for the burn.NERO - 6.6.0.16O/S - XP ProAny ideas please?

Answer:Burning a DVD for DVD player (to be played on TV)

Try here works well click here try not running anything when you burn with nero (turn off screen savers etc)Do you use nero vision express?and have you updated nero recently just go to the site and download the newest update.Good luck

Hello All,My Son plays a game called Runescape online, we pay about 3:50 monthly for this, his account is due and to be honest I don't want to pay for it again if at all possible, not because I am tight but there may be free ones out there? Are there any games out there without a fee that can be played online with other web users in real time especially team games.I realise of course that the best games may have to be paid for, but I hope the good folk on here can perhaps point some out that I have never heard of (most of them !) Thanks to all that help,

Answer:Games, that can be played with others online.

You can play runescape for free... Its the same game but limited missions. You can still do all the things in the pay game but there a tighter boundaries. Sat

Hi,

I am using DVDFab Platinum to burn dvd's, every so often after the burn which says completed successfully I get a message on my stand alone dvd player "This type of disc cannot be played.Please insert a different disc."

Hi Guys,

My computer is P1 166 MMX Win 98.

Why I can't play some of my files even though they are of the same type?
Example: I can play some of my .asf file but my other .asf file return an error message.
The one that can't be played run OK on other computer (P3 with Win XP).

Is that because my media player is obsolete?

What good media player for my computer spec that can play all media files?

When i play music in either windows media player or musicmatch jukebox the song stutters randomly. I know there's not a problem with the mp3 file because when i replay it, the song will stutter somewhere else. I have defragmented my hard drive and turned off all applications running in the backgound usind msconfig, but this has not solved the problem. I have watched the processor graph in task manager and whenever the music stutters, the cpu usage goes up to about 80%. This occurs when multi-tasking or just leaving the pc to play just music.My pc spec is as follows:AMD Athlon 1.4ghz, 512MB RAM, 120Gb Baracuda HD, KT7A Raid ABIT motherboard, Sound Blaster 1024 live soundcard.All the latest soundacard drivers are installed.If any one could help i'd really appreciate it.

Lately, when i go into or out of hibernation, Windows XP (fully patched) plays a sound--specifically, the chimes file. If I delete the wav file, Windows just plays another sound. This is something I can obviously live with--but there's no place in the sounds control panel function that specifically deals with these events. I'd like them to be silent, like they used to be. Any thoughts?

Best,

Answer:Sound played going into/out of hibernation

This is a long shot, but you might try selecting a different Sound Scheme, reboot,
then go back and select your original scheme and see if that reinstates your original settings.

I'd also look at whether or not you have installed any new software or updated a driver.

Answer:crashing when any game is played

You probably have a cheapo power supply(or just a low wattage model) that doesn't have as much power as your system will require. Check the brand, wattage, and amperages per rail(12v, 3.3v, 5v, etc), and post back if you can. The Psu(power supply unit) is in the top back corner of the case usually, so you'll have to open the case to look at it.

PLayed with jumpers, now i am dead

I was just playing with jumpers. and changed there their position to c what happens. On switching on the comp nothing happened, even the boot screen did not show . So i reset the changes i had made to the jumpers and now everything was working fine.
However after restarting my pc (switching off the power as well)
my mouse didn't work, pressing a key resulted in loud sounds from the cpu, and i couldn't acces the bios, though though the computer booted fine and i see the windows 'user welcome' screen.

Now, i have to use this workaround to start my comp everytime.

Chane the jumpers , power on and wait till i get the horrible noise, then switch off. Change jumpers back to original position and then finally reboot. This works but the bios gets reset everytime and i get his something like this.





cmos batteryfailed
warning your cpu has changed
enter cpu speed in cmos and save before exiting.Click to expand...

So basically i have to switch the jumpers twice, in order to boot.
Jumpers:
1 -near the cpu, i don't thnk this is causing probs.
2-near a pci slot, changing this gives me the blankscreen
3. near the cmos batterty and bios.

My pc:
PIII 550Mhz, award bios , 256mb Ram, xp, Procomp BST1B-E mobo .

All comments, help are welcome.
P.S i have updated my bios as well- still doesn't work. plz read my 3rd post- i have really nailed the problem.
 

Answer:PLayed with jumpers, now i am ddead

I suggest you get the model number of your motherboard, and go find the user manual. It will tell you exactly what the jumpers do. If you already know what they do, then you should know in what position they should be in.

The one by the CPU I would guess may be a FSB jumper. The one by the battery, a CMOS clean jumper, and the one by PCI slot, perhaps a default video jumper? Do you have onboard video as well as a card? Or perhaps that is USB voltage jumper?

My PC overheated (60 C) a few weeks ago. Fans were clogged, so I cleaned it up nice and good and temp dropped to 49-53. Which is fine since I use a generic fan/heatsink.

But since then I've been getting this video problem, anytime i try to play video, no matter what format (DVD, mpg, avi, online streaming videos), my PC will definitely hang, but you just don't know when.

I was thinking maybe DirectX or DetonatorXP problem, tried changing versions, no help. BTW dxdiag sez nothing is wrong, except if I try to change the "music" port to something other than the default (first in the list).

My setup:

Answer:PC hangs when video is played.

Welcome to TechSpot

Check that your graphics card is properly seated. If there is a fan on it, make sure it works.
Remove and reseat the memory as well while you're at it.
As you had a lot of dust on your CPU-fan, take a good look at the Powersupply's fan and clean it if needed. This might be the "whiner".
What are your PSU's brand, model and output and how old is it?

Hi I need help with my computer. it doesnt seem to play music but plays video but no sounds come out.

I Have a Dell Dimension 5150 with SigmaTel Audio.

When i open itunes it says "ITunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly"

When i play a song on Windows Media Player 11 is says "You've encountered error message C00D11DF while using Windows Media Player."

In Sound and Audio Devices it doesnt seem to register the speakes as is says "No Audio Device"

All My Sound/Audio Devices are working properly in Device Managers

I have tried reinstalling the SigmaTel Device as the Dell Staff told me it did not work and did the Diagnostic Test, i could hear the sounds from my speakers.

Dell has told me the Windows OS may be the problem. and told me to reformat everything then try if it works.

Any Help me please? 1st time i ever got this problem
