Sadly, you're prolly right. My mum doesn't play games (except broken sword --; ) and I'd back out of such a proposition (Rambo Challenges ) before it could start. I do -not- have a deathwish

Just did Cleanup2 myself...I'll send it.

P.S. Do you gents hear the text-to-speech talking in my demos?

P.P.S Shredder, the toughest ones are going to have situations where you have to hack/turn valve/blast pump admist heavy resistance. Whereas simple run and gun missions are significantly easier, it seems. And yeah...Ort-Boarding's first hack's a bitch. I don't think you should allow 2 marines, though.

Thumbs up

As some of you may know, I was allowed my games for today.
With that out of the way, I did navigation!
Sadly (and I'm sure that after stating this fact no one will believe I actually did the run ) the demo seems to be messed up and won't play. I did get a sceeny though (I don't think I'll ever do that again)
Edit: Forgot to mention I did gauntlet

Its a true bitch, can't even do it on easy without losing at least 1/4 health

That's why i never have passed it on easy, and it only has happened once that i got out with that much health left, usually it goes under 1/3 and then i try to survive to the end but something hits me

But though, im talking about Ortega Campaing here, don't know about single missioning it

Yeah I changed my mind again on that. It will just have to go unfinished.

Umm...not to be premature or anything, but I thought it might interest some of you that I was able to complete all individual segments of Ort-Boarding on insane...but I have yet to string it all together...there's so much randomness in the inf spawns around the first hack area that 9/10 times I never get past it. But what seems like the best plan for it, and the actual hack part is easy now...just getting to it by the north route is a bitch. Also, the major egg room before the 3rd hack is...difficult to control. So, tell me, do I get a cookie or something if I beat it? Gimme some additional incentive here. Besides knowing that I combined one part skill with nine parts luck...

P.S. Hope you enjoy how the Bug City demo ends. That was some tense shit.

"And so the challenge got called the Ramboses' :
must do the maps before Moses."

I enjoyed the 2 player demo. Would be nifty to have more demos with good coop action. Maybe LC and BioLab could be made 2 player maps ? Sure, given the right exploits all maps can be done, but watching good action and teamplay is more interesting than watching someone melee the Queen for 5 minutes.

Maybe ill get in on the boarding action?That first hack is definately an annoyance.The part with the four eggs before the third hack is even more of an annoyance than that hack.And the second hack is quite a bum with the big amount of bugs that come from that wall and the other few bugs from the windows.The third hack i have no clue never got there solo.

Try taking a few runs on increasing difficulty levels until you get a feel for the level, start on Easy, take a few runs until you're comfortable, amp it up to normal, repeat, then up to hard, repeat, and finally do runs on Insane until you beat it.

No, using console commands inside ASw.

Just tried it with Salsa's flightdeck and it works, but Moses demo's dont...

[edit:] Tried community menu and that doesn't work either.

Btw, a couple of things about the flightdeck demo:

1)A player (moses) died
2)Taking a medic makes it too easy

Moses' demos work fine for me, I can't explain it. Maybe it's demos recorded offline that you can't view.

They sneaked in that attempt before I added the rule about both players surviving.

Yep.

Also, I defy anyone - even salsa - to complete Lost Contact or SE on insane. I designed that map to require teamwork and people laying down fire in multiple directions at once, not to mention hacking and welding.

I don't even think it could be done with 2.

I doubt one person alone could do it, but Moses proved me wrong on Boarding, it just needed the right method. Two people I think it could be done, although, has it ever been done on insane, at all? Maybe we should try with four first.

I've never completed it online in more than normal difficulty, and even then, I was the only survivor

I'd love to have a crack on hard diff with 6 good players...

Out of boredom I decided to do Navigation/Gauntlet.

Yes I have 13 flamer ammo and 20 health left, I was playing with a headache and kept running into aliens. Durandal did better I guess, I decided to forgo the hacktool for the final hack, I'm a stim addict.

I started the demo when I reach the 2 hackconsoles before I hack, the parts before that are easy anyway. The first hack was done with open panels.

Want me to email demo(does it qualify?) I have no server to host.

Do you have the latest patch for ut installed (3355) ? I'm running it and I can play all the demos just fine.
