Some follow up info:

I'm pretty sure nobody really thinks you lack the conviction to own your actions and opinions. I also think that would remain unchanged regardless of whether or not someone goaded you into posting about anything in particular.

I don't really read long arguments so I'm not up with the back story, I just woke up and found nice people sounding very unhappy, so I tried to say something that I hoped might help diffuse the situation. If I had been following it all, then based on what I know of the usual crowd, my expectation is that I would be inclined to support you.

I would never attack anyone's faith simply because it is not my own. I find it both admirable and unfathomable - even though it is something I am unlikely to ever have, I would never want to take it away from anyone else.

That being said I think the majority of people here are not religious (AFAIK) which makes 90% of the religious discussion the epitome of the phrase barking up the wrong tree. If you want to keep trying then that's your call ...but I love you for other reasons.

BTW: Usually EC makes perfect sense if you smash 15 beers first - but yeah, if you read it sober it's pretty much word soup through a straw  ;)

I swear it's like you two play WC2 then get together to play a ball game afterwards. BS brings a tennis racket and EC brings a bastball bat then you stand there hitting balls at each other and arguing about whether or not there should be a net in the middle.

You're playing differen't games. Stick to WC2, I'm pretty sure you had fun doing that, or you wouldn't have ended up playing tennis-ball.

This is either a really bad-taste troll, or a really personal argument that doesn't belong in any public forum.

Peace and love to you both.

YAY! Common sense previals - I think.

TBH I wasn't paying enough attention to the details to really know, but it feels like things have been set to rights.

At any rate I'm loving the fireworks. I watched them for a while then I think had a small seizure....  but when I regained conciousness I still felt really festive... so WOOT!  :D

I really like ur avatar claw, its so cute and friendly. What is that thing anyway?

The Flash is way better than Spider-Man because if Spidey tried to throw webs at him he could just dodge them cos he is so fast, then he could just run straight up the side of a building and totally pwn Spiderman.

Spiderman has spider sence and would sence the flash before he was hit. Spiderman would own the flash.

Blasphemy! The legion of the holy bolt will curse you name while swatting at puny spiders with our righteous brooms of truth! We will rain flash-bangs upon your decendents untill the end of time! You will die screaming for this heinous sin against the one true god of inappropriate tights!

The Flash is way better than Spider-Man because if Spidey tried to throw webs at him he could just dodge them cos he is so fast, then he could just run straight up the side of a building and totally pwn Spiderman.

If anyone disagrees I will kill your children and blow up your towns with drone-strikes and IEDs.

my friend got the same, it cant be problem internet connection cause he is playing sc, cs, dota2 and he havent got lags there, where speed is higher than w2 needs

ping only show your current ping when u are  joining server, it should change all the time ^^

The whole thing is that server ping isn't relevant.

Your ping time to the server is not related to games, only your connection to other players matters... the server isn't part of the game.

If I am on Mars playing 1's with another guy on Mars we both have like 20 minute server ping times, but we could play each other with no lag. It  would take 20 minutes to /m each other though, because that goes via the server.

Moral: Server ping time != lag ...... BUT it can show up issues (like if a player is on Mars).

lol i couldnt build a new pc right now lol..best one i ever built was a 2 cpu dual opteron(2005 tech)....i can fill up the screen with 32 instance of emulators running..but it idles at a cool 200 watt..this consumer tri core cant most of its performance is like a 386 running win95..got a 386 50 now that is a beast can run war2bnet :P

lol im sure we can all put it together to power something on...watch out for static electricity..but i can not tell anyone whats better

why not go usb 3.0 over ssd im still 2.0 and u can use 2 for a hardrive to stop bottllenecks.

the only dam reason im not hooked to my single core laptop or p3 is browsers..played ql just as good..looks like a job for linux but lazy..my old fedora for my e-300 is on usb drives thats a damn good amd cpu also..probably in your all in one burnt

what is wrong with this pc..probably the stock compaq mobo get a good mobo<

flashback..i played halo 1 in 2008 on a dx4 100mhz/nvidia5500 gateway 2000 486 multiplayer that has to be a record mofo burn mp3sgod what a beast! if theres just someway to surf the web u could still use them

the problem is bloated..maybe reactos is good enuff to go, partition with that and boot war2 native
i really dont think games should be pushing over 1ghz
snes 3 mhz gens 12 ps2 gamecube <500 box1 a p3 733

My main PC is still a 32-bit Win XP machine Core2 Quad CPU (4x 2.66GHz) 4GB of RAM (maximum XP supports) It's got a mid-range nVidia card from a few years ago. The Gigabyte motherboard is fairly new (compared to the processor) and has USB3 Support.

I like it because it's pretty much bullet-proof and has quite good performance for a 32bit machine - and I don't have $$ to burn. The CPU will happily overclock which I did as an experiment but have never bothered doing since. The CPU fan almost never goes above idle speed.

I have been hanging on to XP tooth and nail, but it's an uphill battle as so much isn't supported anymore and eventually I'm going to have to upgrade. I dont run any really new games, so that's not really an issue. Probably the most modern game I run is something like Skyrim but I can get quite decent 3D first person performance from that. My laptop has Win7 on it and I have had various other versions of windows and/or unix running on other computers (32 and 64 bit).

An SSD is a hard drive that doesn't have magnetic disks, its basically like a great big USB stick that runs via SATA. Externally they look and operate just like a HDD but they have much faster access speeds. Having fast access speed for your system drive can be a significant performance factor. There are now PCIe SSD options available. I have never owned one, but if I was building a new system I would love one of those (PCIe slots are where you plug in video cards etc. and are capable of extremely fast I/O speeds).

USB3 has much better performance than USB2, and quite good top speeds, but isnt really ideal for running your system drive, although perhaps it could work, I've never tried. USB3 has a theoretical max of 0.625 GB/s but is more like 0.4GB/s in practice. There are PCIe controllers that support over 7GB/s. I'm not even sure if there are drives capable of that kind of performance, but still - that's some serious grunt :) Bottleneck? What bottleneck?

well i think he means u gotta keep up with the times...i was a p3 til 2014..and the sad thing it runs way better than this pc

it helps to know the ram shit idk what era ram is these days 5?

if ur gonna game good cpu+ good vcard ..everything else slap some shit together.

i waas big in it in the p4 days 3ghz omg!!!! that stopped when someone gave me a 1.3 p3 mofo! and thats why intel went back to the p3 arch cause that bitch was bad. well cheers gl getting a pc..don get a dam alien unless u can afford it

LAMBY'S 5 minute DIY puter building crash-course

- Pick a processor, make sure it has good cache speeds.

- Get a motherboard that supports it. If the CPU is "Slot-BakedBeans" get a board with a "Slot-BakedBeans"

- Make sure your motherboard supports your RAM... if your motherboard has slots for "DDR-poptarts" then get some "DDR-poptarts" RAM

- Get a nVidia video card and a solid state hard drive (SSD)

- Get a case with a good power supply

Plug everything in and don't install windows 10


Personally I find computer parts usually are priced kind of like this:

 $1000 - OMG this is the most awesome thing ever! You need this OMG!
 $150 - stuff that was $1000 six months ago and is still 95% as good
 $120 - slightly lower spec stuff that is still ok if you're not building a space shuttle
 $90 - probably has some issues
 $80 - dodgey crap from some shitty company that also makes PVC pipe and umbrellas

The $150 stuff will build you a really nice system. A $120 stuff puter will still probaby be pretty good. A mix of the right $120-$150 stuff is usually what I go for. Sometimes the $90 things can be a good deal but research and use caution.


These days all the bits inside a computer can only be plugged into its correct place, if it fits the socket then that's where it goes.

If there are multiple sockets of the same type they will usually be numbered from 0 thru n .... start at the 0 end.

Use normal care. Handle everything as little as possible and try not to touch the contacts, but don't panic - unless you're wearing a nylon jumpsuit and scrubbing your feet on the carpet parts rarely get damaged. Normal people can do this, you dont have to be a neurosurgeon.

If you have to attach a heatsink to a CPU, use some heat transfer paste like a thin smear of toothpaste.

Did I forget anything?

How much do you want to spend? Don't buy a prebuilt PC, especially an Alienware, total junk. Put it together yourself, its very easy. Let me know how much you want to spend and ill give you a parts list. Also do you plan to stay at 1080p or go 1440p or 4K?

Ya ive heard building your own is better just no way I could do this 😞 no experience and really dont have the patience to learn.

Btw welcome to the forums!

Learn? It's about as hard as building a 4 piece Lego kit. Plugging cables into the back when you're finished is more complicated.

I sometimes run war2 on Vmware on my mac, its fine for watching games but not as responsive if you're looking for competitive play.
Xp and win 7 seem the best for running war2!  Burnt you should do a Dual boot hackintosh!! It's nice not having to worry about
viruses on the Macintosh side

think its just a matter of
1) not letting windows fuck w2 up
2) not letting modern screens stretch w2 window and fuck up aspect ratio

So 1 is the OS ... 2 is the monitor ...
computer still pretty much in the clear ???

My last two computers have been all in 1 comps though 😁

You mean including the monitor?... I see.

Well the VM thing SHOULD be able to run it windowed... well not actually WC2 windowed, but the whole virtual computer windowed, which would add up to the same thing.

Needs testing, but I think it will work.

 On the subject of 3... well sort of 3 lol

I just went and picked up some stuff I had in storage yesterday. Amoungst it was 5 desktop PCs and a laptop. IIRC a few of them have linux on them, and it seems to be that VMs would be perfect for WC2... given that it uses 100% of a CPU - well it doesn't actually use it, which is the point. I'd be surprised if you couldnt get a multiple WC2s running on the same system with no issues. Certainly no aspect ratio problems either, you could just window them.

Ima try it out when I get this big pile of stuff sorted out a bit.... but right now I can barely move.
