Windows 7: the new Wolfenstein game

Has anyone come across some places that look like they might be flames but are semi-transparent? The level after the train stuff comes to mind.

I've been playing it for a while now and am going to dump it.

Besides the really bad "German" accents and voice acting, it's visually really lame.

Gnädige Frau, saugt es.

I just went through the first for a look over of the new version. This is definitely a much updated sequel with far more life like interaction!

Wolfenstein is by Id Software is also made by Activision not VALVemare where you have to log onto an account. It falls under the "Games for Windows" title like JB Quamtum of Solace and other titles there.

The lighter then air trip through the train station was definitely a new one there. You still can't take screenshots since that option was never seen in RTCW like other games for a look.

There is one thing to know when going to install the game. Even if you have already downloaded and installed the redistributable DX9c you will still to use the DX installer option. If you cancel that option you will run into the missing file error for one or more of the additional DX components the installer will put on.

If you run into that from not following through with the easy solution is simply to browse the game disk to the DX folder found there with quite a bit more cab files!

It's meant to be like that. It's a power source for your veil device.

Just use FRAPS for screenies.

I always hated FRAPS since you can't lose the frame counter unless buying the full version of that.

Another one called Cam Studio wasn't any help there either there never seemed to be a way to get that one running on the games here at the time I was trying it out.

I guess I'll just have to set a camcorder aimed at the display in order to grab screens when uploading the playback!

true. but there are numerous GFWL games on steam. GTAIV comes to mind. though with GTA on steam, you have 3-4 different services needed to actually play the game (Live, GTAtv, steam, etc). and i believe Dawn of War II is also on steam, and that to runs with GFWL.

so maybe, in the future steam may very well host Wolfenstien as well.

in any case. i've been reading a few reviews, and checking out some gameplay vids. this game looks pretty good. aside from the bugs, it's said to have, and semi-linear gameplay. i just really like fps (<- fraggy face )

During normal play or in recording? You can hide the counter during normal play.

Can't say I've really noticed any major bugs, or even minor ones in SP

Low-res textures and no AA can't really be called bugs

I'd say more linear than semi

you can add fallout 3 to that list, although i'm not sure why it insists on xlive.dll.

i've only tried half-hour or so of new wolfie, and i'm sad to say that so far i'm not impressed. as mentioned above, movement is slow, graphics very dated. i haven't seen enough of the plot yet to comment. i didn't like the options screen either - it took me a few seconds to work out how to use it - click on the button, then press enter. default key mapping seemed odd too - but then i suppose i am used to my favourite key combos.

my initial impressions were the graphics seem to be a bizarre mutation of bioshock (watery effects) and moh:airbourne. this game could have been released two years ago, and nobody would have said much.

the only redeeming feature for me is the blood spurting out of necks!
