Anywho, thanks to Alienate for the advice. If anyone knows of agreat FPS I haven't played, I'd love to hear about it.
You've played half-life right? =) I think you'd like it...
In Quake 3, I highly recommend grabbing the Threewave mappacks and trying CTF (if you don't already). There's also thepopular mods like RA3, Urban Terror, and Q3F.
I keep hearing rage reviews of System Shock 2, and personallyI enjoyed the demo as well.
It sounds like something that Deus Exfans would like. I picked it up fairly recently inbargain-basement format ("Classics" or some such) andI've been meaning to get into it... if you don't want to leaponto that just yet I'll remember to tell you how it goes when/ifI get around to it.If you enjoyed the sneaking around in Deus Ex, then the Thiefgames are a must-try. At least check the demos. And I'm sure youcan get them in bargain and/or bundled form too.
Like BB says, there's Half-Life, and then the OpFor/Blue Shiftmissionpack bundle. Half-Life has got some very popular mods too-- of course Counter-Strike and TFC, but several others too(which I don't have any experience with).
MDK2 was a very fun and visually striking solo third-person gamethat reminded me a lot of console gaming.
I have a list laying around of "games I really should getaround to checking out"... NOLF is on the list, as isUndying, Aliens vs. Predator, Elite Force, and Blade ofDarkness.
Received the follow messages:1)To install System Shock 2 on your Windows 2000 system, you will need to run the following command (from a DOS window or using the Run Program command): Setup -lgntforce also you need the patch from http://www.lglass.com/cs/shkpatch.exe to fix the incompatibility with the SafeDisk copy protection and the OS.2) Fails to work under Matrox G200 cards due to driver bug. (Even after patch.) Game installs fine, but exits out with a black screen and then an error message from SS2 -- "YOUR VIDEO HARDWARE IS NOT SUPPORTED BY SYSTEM SHOCK 2" Thief 1 & 2, also by Looking Glass, have problems with the driver. Matrox is aware of the bug it will hopefully be fixed in the next driver revision. http://forum.matrox.com/mgaforum/Forum10/HTML/000644.html3) I tried the sugguestions noted but the game hangs once I get into a mission. No clue if its 2000 related, or hardware related. Have dual 800 PIII's, 128 rdram, geforce2 gts, sb x-gamer, both with latest drivers.4) If you have dual CPUs, you need to start the game, then set the affinity to only one CPU in task manager. With affinity set to both CPUs, SS2 will crash.5) If installed using "setup.exe -lgntforce" (no quote marks) and the patch is installed then it should work fine.
Received the follow messages:1) Works fine2) bad: lots of video banding on almost all high resolutions under win2k pro sp1 geforce 2 gts..guess we wait for a patch from Monolith to fix3) won't run at all under win2k pro sp1 gf2gts, even with the new patch..tried 2 clean installs of win2k sp1 but game still will not run...just hangs the sytem, needing a hard reboot4) Installs, loads and plays fine! Probably the best single-player game since Half-Life!! Game is patched. Athlon, Voodoo3, Win2K SP15) previous problems with nolf (problems 1 and 2) fixed by installing sp2...runs great now
