Bye bye HGL?
« on: January 13, 2009, 08:11:07 PM »
So, since nobody has posted in this forum in two months, and the game itself is going to the Great Game Recycle Bin in the sky this month, should we kill this subforum (ie. archive it in the dusty cellar)?

I vote to wait two more weeks for the servers to officially shut down, have a good bye thread and talk one more time about the game with so much potential that went nowhere.

Can we skip all that and just have a moment of silence, followed by a collective shout of "Flagshipped!"

:D

Every once and a while I think about reinstalling the game.  Ah well...I had fun with it for six months straight.  Ropper is an idiot.

I'm reinstalling it this very moment.

Stuck with single-player, obviously, but that's okay.

Mostly I'm interested in testing out the DX10 version on max settings since my system has been upgraded substantially since the last time I tried the DX10 version... And I have no other DX10 games to test. :lol:

Bioshock is a good game to test on Dx10.  It looks fabulous. 

If I remember correctly Dx10 was poorly implemented in HGL.  A shock I know.

But completely uninteresting. :P

Besides, I don't want to BUY a game to test something.

Dunno really, since obviously I have nothing to compare it to. But I've been playing it a bit now with everything maxed out in DX10 mode and maintaing 60FPS (@1680x1050), so it can't be too awful bad. :)

I'm still pissed Flagship screwed things up so much.  I liked the game.

I disagree.

You should have got it on Steam during the holiday sale for $5.

Not even if they paid me.

My vote- while worth nothing- is to wait until the servers go down.  Makes the most sense to me, even if no one is discussing it.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

You know...I think I will reinstall the game. :-)
