I again disagree, this is all down to opinions and not actual facts
Being on the net has nothing to do with it, I have worked with teams to do things 100% netbased
no phone calls, lunch meetings or trips to the park and they came out great
the only thing that matters is flexability, are you willing to
A)let someone tell you "that sucks, this would be better"
B)devote the time
C)actually communicate with someone you might have NO past experience with

I'm sure theres more I could add to that but do you care?
I'm guessing mainly the reason for failure here is c, you people could care less about working with others MINE MINE MINE
Just because teamwork hasn't yet worked in this case, you cant just write it off as not working anywhere

A decent example, I used to play an mmorpg called "Nexus, The Kingdom of The Winds" for 5 years and there was a 100% online based group effort made event that was made before I started playing that is still ongoing and the most used facet of the game
It's called carnage and justly so, your split into teams whose main goal is to take out the other team
Some people login just to participate in these events
It's so popular and overcrowded it's split into different divisions, and held several times a day
Ok done ranting think what you will but I say teamwork is best over a lone effort any day

I'm going to have to disagree again
as with anything, its not inherently bad
it depends on the group, and how they decide to split the tasks
1 person working on towns/dungeons, 1 person working on outdoors, 1 on text and one on sprites would in my opinion be better than everyone for themselves, lets hurry up and release this!
since I've been excused I think I'll go take a dump....on my karma since someone thought it would be funny to give me 1 star
I myself find it pretty comical

thanks for that link, I'm not even going to reply to anyone else
everyones allowed their opinions, but I think lotr scenarios done by a >group< of talented people would roll over nicely
I myself can do decent scripting but I dont have the patience to build towns etc...
3-4 people working on 1 scenario would not only increase speed but content, 4 different opinions on what could be improved
blah blah I'm going to play avernum 1 night night

yes but its very hard to switch from pc to mac not for difference in os/feel but money! its easier to buy some new pieces to an old pc than to buy a whole new setup...
if I sold my current machine I couldnt afford a g5...and the only time I will upgrade again is to 64bit
will I have enough money to in the future...who knows but you evil people are corrupting me with your mac ways
btw I started using litestep not too long ago and I like it much better than the standard explorer shell

thanks for the cynicism?
um anyway didnt say they had to follow the story, you can make you own take on other peoples stories..if you have any sort of imagination
and what may be poor to you might be interesting, entertaining or good to others
just for you I might actually look into creating scenarios....

hmm well I dont know abotu switching to mac but I am thinking of swithcing to amd 64 by next year....
mmm welcome to the world of 64bit computing, too bad its not very practical yet

of course consoles will always be my major gaming source....no way you can compete with 128 bit
wonder what the next playstation will be like

forgive me for ignorance but why would you need both a copy of mac os and an emulator? what exactly is this rom card too...
and you can get any os free including the latest mac os, if you know where to look....
I dont think we can talk about software piracy here tho right...?

Well, to get BoA earlier ... could be a reason to support apple, no?

[/i]

Does apple support plug n play?
I would rather have an upgradeable unit than having to buy whole new setups with no choice of os? You have to run a mac os on a mac machine right?
I dont know much so forgive me if I am wrong
Also I wouldnt know how to rate macs, I use the pc mainly for video editing which is cpu intensive
I currently have a p4 3 GHz 800 MHz FSB cpu with HT, what kind of cpu do mac use
I also capture video with my radeon card...what kind of video cards for mac?
I could ask more but...oh well

I wouldn't mind seeing some LoTR scenarios....and sprites
I wouldn't mind seeing treebeard in action, asaulting isengaurd
I think helmsdeep was one of the best parts of the series, if anyones particularly good at making scenarios/sprites...
just suggestions

might be fun/funny to see some star wars type scenarios too :P
