How far could the spec be pushed using a decent CD-ROM laser. Could you squeeze 1GB out of a CD drive that was specked to 700MB before?
How about a DVD drive, could you make a 5.5GB single layer DVD disc?
I am curious to know...
I have bought a handful of 900MB CDRs
The lobby and matchmaking service is pretty nice, allowing you to form a party and then look for games where you can play on the same team, a pity it doesn't work so well in practise. You're stuck with the problem that a large proportion of people leave as soon as they see several people bearing the same tag join the game meaning that you have to go through the matchmaking process several times. Then there's the more technical problem of the game sometimes leaving some players behind when the lobby joins or leaves a game.
Where is the need to all of you using the same tag?, just do as my friends and I do, use your usual nickname
When you actually get into a game, there's a small chance that the dynamically chosen "best" host will be terrible and have huge lag spikes. (This while we're all connected through the university JANET connection.) Eventually the game decides to migrate the host, everything stops, a new host is chosen and then the game continues. Then the host quits because his team is losing and we go the the "Choosing a new host" screen again, and again.
Which takes 5 seconds at most, YMMV, but in 40 hours of multiplayer gameplay, I had to leave the host TWICE because of having massive lag, and then, I was playing again in less than a minute
I've looked at the listing, and it's right! -- Joel Halpern
