    I just hope that the only way to continue the main quest isn't to get Lyons killed. Hopefully they have Fawkes jump in and offer to type in the code, if he's in your party. Or have them carry you off to an infirmary somewhere if you do go for the sacrifice.

    I think that's what they were hinting at. Well, maybe not exactly that but if you did choose the one option your character will get to continue on afterwards. How does this happen? We still have to wait and see.

    This is excellent news. I'm not a modder myself, but I can't wait to see all the great mods that'll be coming out in the future now that this is released. :)

    i hope you can build some undestroyed looking stuff. i'd like an 'oasis' in game. high rise waterfront condo.

    BTW i figured out the carry weight command (typo). still i wish i could have my L16 game back. i did a lot of killin i don't really want to do again (boring).

    Indeed, just stumbled upon it last night, even without this little hint.

    Anybody have X-Fi (true X-FI chip) soundcard and good headphones?


    Enable 3D sound virtualisation for the phones. With F3 it improves the sound a helluva lot. More depth, athmopshere... really good. No perfomance impact.

    Nice, I just started to use it recently and I am very satisifed. Though some games dont need it (Crysis and Warhead gets strange sound). I assume it is becouse Crysis and warhead already heavily post-process the sound to add effects etc.

    My sound seems sort of crackly, i don't think it's an effect, it was better when i played under XP SP2 i think.

    that and i seem to have developed a mouse freeze, that isn't just in game, just started when i was playing it (both XP and Vista). i've run MS virus checker. seems like Vista sucks up my ram, so i installed rambooster, but it's only improved things somewhat.

    still i enjoy the game greatly, a quality ride IMO.

    A tip, check if the HDD or any optical media is in PIO mode instead of DMA.
