    Mailman, why don't you play at 1680 x 1050? Your rig beats mine and I can play CoD 4 with everything maxed out and get an average of 60FPS.

    Yes. Co-Op online is confirmed.

    Yeah but my refresh rate at the resolution is only 60mhz. If I play at 1400rez its at 75mhz and better framerates with AA on. Plus I cant tell the difference between the two.

    mailman: refresh is Hz, not MHz.

    Remember guys, this is based off cod4! as i proved in another thread (i have a video of it) even an x1600 on an athlon64 (939) can manage 60-90FPS on the lowest settings.
    Everyone will be able to run the game, but very few will be able to max it out :)

    I max CoD4 out fine. I don't know why no one else would be able to also. My system specs are pretty crappy compared to most on this forum.

    ive maxed out mine as well on cod4 on a basic pc. im pretty sure the gpu is working over time to make up for the xtra memory i lack on the basic pc. and now i have a dam good mobo memory cpu and ps and vid card. from the big screen tv im 1366 x 768 and thats maxed it can do. pity the tv is not lower than 8ms, but better than nothing i guess.
    i also rec that the size of the power supply dictates how your system runs.
    get a low p/s and it will draw out what it needs then suck n suck n suck when it needs xtra putting xtra strain on the p/s, but if it has more than it needs then it takes only what it needs to run and xtra when needed eg games etc etc. heaps of power is better than sweet bugger all
    remember tim the tool man taylor could be right in some ways " more power ughhh ughhhh ugh ugh" :)

    Fair enough! I can't stand 1400 x 900, makes everything all squished up and weird lookin'.

    Do you think having an individual card to run PhysX will boost frame rates???

    I have a wide screen :)

    The CoD4 engine uses havok so I don't think having a separate card to process physics will make any difference. However I have heard from my nividia friends that the CoD4 engine is very SLI optimized.

    I hope they bring back Cpt. Price - it wouldnt be the same if the game didnt have him or at least a descendant of Cpt. Price -

    I actually shed a tear when he died in CoD4. I know its stupid but if youve played CoD since day one its hard not to feel anything since the game in my view was one of the best games ever made.

    Cpt. Price - R.I.P

    No. Not at all. Its a perk. I talked about it in the first post. Anyway I just added like 15 new screenshots and its been rumored that the beta will be out for PC sometime this week!
    Anyway here is the perk. Second Chance - Just like Last Stand, When you've been shot you drop to the ground armed only with your pistol to give you a few seconds to take out any enemy before you bleed out. If a team-mate also has Second Chance he can revive you

    my bad - I seem to be commenting a lot on stuff & not reading the first post before i comment (Ive done it a few times in this post now :D:D:D:eek::eek::eek: )

    I think 'thowing knives' would be a great addition to ANY CoD game - maybe it woulda been another cool perk if you get shot & pull out a throwing knife instead of a gun.

    Im sure that asside from the usual soldiers loadout - theres 1 who carrys 1 or 2 extra knives in his boots or something.

    As true as this is the Japanese used war dogs also. Whats cool about the dogs in this game is they will sniff out campers and snipers! However everyone shooting at the dogs in a multiplayer match will be a riot! I just hope PETA doesnt hear about this game :shadedshu

    Anyway multiplayer section updated!

    No claymores this time around. We now have something even more annoying. Bouncing Betty's! :laugh:

    If you don't know what those are then look it up. They are going to be LOTS of "fun". :roll:
