Virtual Money

Duh... That's too real for me. It should stay fun. No demolishing or
whatever. And revoking one's registration just for begging... That's no fun
at all. It costs $20 a year, you know. I think that noone should do such a
thing.

Virtual Death

Oct 9, 1998, 12:12pm
That's a good idea. But I still don't like dying, at least not in a short
period. After 2.5 hours doing nothing, that's okay to me. That would save
some communication, so speeding everything up a bit. But I don't think that
there are many ppl who leave their avatars out for so long at all, so it
probably won't have much effect on performance.

language filters and more

Oct 11, 1998, 12:50pm
I'd rather hear everything that is said, no matter what. One can ignore,
after all. Muting is not a solution, I think, nor is a filter. If someone
wants to use foul language, he risks being banned. That's okay. But I would
never mute such a person. Just pretending that no such things as foul
language or harassing exist won't help to really get these things out. Doing
so is like saying "I don't hear it, so it doesn't exist".

You know that would kick even more ass?
Building with speech recognition. Or connecting your brain to the computer

Not within the next decennium i think ;-)

Yopu asked your rethorical question cuz you thought the answer is 'nobody',

OK; but appearantly the answer should be 'plenty of ppl'.
So your rethorical question was not so rethorical after all...

[View Quote] How should we know it's rethorical?
And since when is it not *allowed* to answer a rethorical question?
As far as I know rethorical means that no answer is *needed*.
But in this case I think it *was* needed.

Another thing: why adress these ppl as idiots?
You'd rather adress them as "Unable to afford 3d-acceleration"
Try to be less offensive plz. I can't afford 3d-acceleration either.
Or I should consider not buying that new harddisk after all, so i *do* have
money for it.
But I need the new hd so bad, that without it 3d-acceleration is useless,
cuz I wouldn't have nuff space for installing games and apps that require
3d-acc. ;-)

If you have 3d-acceleration that's very nice for you.
If I ain't got cuz I can't afford it, I don't think it makes me an idiot.

Yeah right...
If you'd have to choose between 25fps and the current amount of "options and
accesories" or 2fps and a huge ammount of extra options what would you
choose?
Choosing between a normal motor an a V8 is a bad comparison. For aw-broweser
it's more like choosing between walking yourself or taking the car.. ;-)

Well not necessarily. If only it wouldn't look like a slide show, that be a

[View Quote] Be more clear then.
You said "What idiot (who uses 3D apps) would have a P2/350 WITHOUT hardware
acceleration?"
And if you see AWB as a 3d-app I think you can call half of all the
aw-visitors idiots.
Or do you think I should stop using awb cuz I haven't got a 3d-card.
Actually I do have one, (Viper330) but unfortunately this card is not
supported, because it can't render in a window. Or do you mean 3dfx-cards
when you say 3d-cards? Well a Viper (or any other Direct3d-card) *is* not a
3dfx-card but it *is* a 3d-card.

P.S.: Talking problems: Appearantly you have a problem with basic human
communication.
You could be a little less offensive and short-tempered. (euphemism)

'nobody', right?
should've narrowed it down to:
hardware acceleration?"
what *you* think it is.

That's what I meant. Awb doesn't yuse all the powers of video-cards. I i put

I'm affraid *most* cards have that problem. Only a few cards *do* render in
a window.

No but that's not the problem here.

That's my point too: Aw *could* be faster but appearantly COF doesn't
consider this necessary.
They seem to think 3fps will do. Well not for me! Especially when the only
reason is that COF is laying back.

*Yes* File-transfering is here! (Soon)

Jan 7, 1999, 5:57am
[View Quote] Yeah but the 'bells and whistles' are already there. Now why is COF not
planning to do s.th. about the speed? Quake doesn't run slow either does it?
Well I think quake is more intensive then Aw....
So appearantly s.th. else seems to be the bottleneck here... ;-)
