Re: i bought name in the game

I just came here to post this exact same thing - is there a way to get this sorted?

Or, you know, to get a partial refund on the premium paid since the purchased "extra" never happened... :?

Re: Reddit Ask Me Anything with Mark and Chris

On one hand I can't sympathise with people who say "oh noes I don't like Reddit so let's not use it" - it's an open, public, anonymous space where any users can find and join the discussion, using an identity that can't be connected with their presence on these forums (if they even have on...

As a happy Defcon/Ubuntu veteran I think it's safe to assume that MW will make its way to cross-platform status when possible. Sure, they could have tried to develop every last beta version & patch concurrently in Linux, but that would probably have been a lot of extra work. Try telling the Wind...

Free Crossover - useful for Mac & Linux?

http://down.codeweavers.com/

Free for today (28th) only, not able to test it myself but could this help anyone keen to play on Mac/Linux?

Though you might like the chance to try it out :)

In the spirit of not asking everyone to hack solutions, and encouraging IV to make a solution for the XBLA version as much as for Windows players, some kind of native support still seems a worthy request.

thanks for the hack though, might give that a shot... or just use the keyboard for now...

[1.1] no fast camera button on Xbox controller

On large maps, Xbox controller users are at a severe disadvantage due to not being able to speed around the map. Perhaps a higher maximum speed on the analogue stick would be useful? A click-to-toggle alternative may work, but I still hope that LS click become a zoom-out-for-overview feature, the op...

Excellent breakdown of possible cause/solution there - if that's all it is, let's hope 1.1.1 has smoooooth cameras!

[1.1] Xbox 360 triggers are not analogue

The Xbox 360 sticks give analogue control over movement, but the triggers (cam up/cam down) simply kick in when they are partially pressed and give a constant speed. Surely they could also be analogue for smoother interaction?

I suspect there is something simple - but hard to pin down - amiss with the "easing" code that brings a moving camera to a gentle stop. However, every time someone reports something that occurs at low FPS I am more concerned that the response is "drop your settings" rather than &...

To be clear, the machine is decent but when I moved the camera through a tree with lots of action going on, the fps dropped and the problem kicked in. It has also happened during meteor showers - fps drops, camera goes crazy. I am not sure if other people find this problem fixes itself, but I have f...

I have also had this on a decent spec system, with all settings at minimum. I think it is a little short-sighted to blame hardware or settings when there is a fairly widely reported issue with the camera movement that can result in this jerking motion. Good luck finding a solution, it would surely n...

In addition to Xander's welcome Windows-is-not-computing point, don't forget that the game can be controlled with an Xbox 360 wired controller - and on the console, it will be - so hitting "Start" to view the menus should also pause action. Nobody who chooses a supported, alternate control...
