    I know. War INC is a PC game only.

    Porting: Adapting software so that an executable program can be created for a computing environment that is different from the one for which it was originally designed.

    Nothing had to be ported. It already runs on WinOS. They may use similar assets and code but that isn't porting.

    Actually WarZ has bullet drop that you must calculate for as well. I see that as the only thing you really listed, so just want to say both games have it. I'm uploading a clip in a few min of me firing a M107 and actually aiming a bit above my target to tag him. If it didn't have bullet drop I would be a bit sad, I've got so use to it from Battlefield.

    I dont see how you guys can stand to play that game wasnt to bad with 40 people in the servers but with 70 its stupid its not really an mmo now more like a terrible fps.

    I didn't ever join 40 people servers, so I didn't mind that one bit. Right now though, the games starting to get a lot more people buying it. Thats why they upped the server population, peak times smallest servers out there are like 35 people, just so many playing the game.

    Hopefully they'll bring more servers online, or allow renting soon, either of those should cure those problems. But the more people there is, the more so it would be an MMO, after all, thats kind of what an MMO is. Though I still don't consider games like this one, since you can server hop and crap.

    Well I worked my way up to the military base. I knew it might be a mistake but god damn I need a real weapon. I did it at night and snuck through the bushes to the main gate and just sat in a bush watching for awhile. within seconds I saw two guys dressed up in what looked like full military garb with assault rifles working their way towards me. I wasn't using a flash light just my binochs and these fools knew right where I was. When i realised they were coming for me I tried to get away but I couldn't out-run automatic rifle fire.


    So where can I find some guns and ammo in this game where I might actually stand a chance of getting to them??

    I wish I could find an empty server just so I could stock up on some supplies.

    It was kinda fun on the 40 man servers not so much now. They say the reason they shut down 100 servers was do to opening up slots to rent it appears they are going to try and host the rental servers themselves. I know the community is really PO at the devs right know for the server change. I think they have a good idea in what they are doing but the devs have been caught contradicting themselves on numerous occasions and it may be catching up to them. Im going to take a wait and see attitude on this one.

    You used to be able to find servers with 10 or fewer people but now with the semester ending and sales climbing that might be harder to find.

    The best way to find guns is to go looking for them. Its true that cop cars, maybe even jails and other such places are likely to contain an assault rifle or a pistol but from my experience you can find them in random places, places you would least expect it. Bottom line is look for where any item may spawn and you might find a weapon. I like to spawn with empty characters, its hard at first cause you have to really rely on stealth but you also risk nothing on death. It was night and I spawned with one such character and ended up getting detected by several zombies in a small town. I was running so much I had low stamina, just as the zombies were gaining on me I turn around behind a building and to my surprise there was a shotgun sitting right there at the back. Picked it up and killed those suckers. While we might not always be that lucky, you need to at least try and look around.

    Thats what I've been doing. I have several characters but only one with all the good kit that i could find so far. I've been using characters with nothing on them to scout around looking for stuff. Then I either remember where I found them or bring the stuff to the safe zone for my main character.

    I look every where but so far I've had shit for luck.

    Last night I started playing on Euro servers because I found a bunch that only had 9-10 people on them.

    Like said, check everywhere. Military bases do have the best chance for the best loot. But you don't need the best loot to be honest if you get the situation correctly. The pistols are deadly and can kill with ease against much better geared played. Pistols you can find everywhere. Mossberg is also great, it can 1 shot people with much better gear, as long as you make sure to catch them at extremely close range. Beyond that though, Police Stations, Police Cars, Humvee's, those kinds of places have a chance to get you M4's and M16's, and if you're lucky a Sig Sauer 556.

    Well that didn't take them long, very nice!

    ---------------------------------
    Also if anyone wants to see some M107 action, check out my new video. Also for bullet drop, look where I have the crosshairs when I fire.

    Is it possible to just find ammo? I have an automatic pistol but I have no ammo for it.

    Which pistol do you have? There are a few that don't have ammo yet, but 9mm ammo and .22 ammo clips are out there.

    And that's what they are ending up with?
    Seriously?
    When he hatchets the zombie it just splats blood like an old quake game.
    There is no sense of physics and no bodily damage, no dismemberment..
    The graphics look dated and the engine looks choppy..

    This is exactly what I was worried about happening..
    I think this cow has been milked enough..

    This guy better do a whole hell of a lot better designing this game or it is nothing more than dead island..
    Only more boring, more choppy and uglier.

    Dammit, I was really hoping someone would do a Zombie game justice finally in an MMO esque setting.
    Try harder..
    Shit canning that engine and using one that actually looks and runs good, would be a nice start.

    I jumped on a server with 10 people on it yesterday and I was able to search the entire military base before a couple of players scared me off with their guns. All I found was food and meds. NO WEAPONS at all. (Is there a way to access Humvee's? Everyone I find has tinted windows and no way to see in.)


    I then ran over to Smallville and saw a Police station...There I found a pistil and a single 9mm clip, bigger back pack (medium) and some more food, meds and water.

    I then ran to Compos City. It became night and with way too many zombies around I decided to log off.


    I really want to know if there is a way to access humvee and personel carriers...?

    You can't enter any vehicles yet. Lots of them you can find loot inside, but Humvee's are not in that group yet. Though you can find good loot around most of the Humvee's in game. The ones with a box in the back can spawn loot on that, look can spawn on the hood and roof, also loo can spawn under the front end of it. So they are still a good spot to find good gear, at leasto n par with police stations and low level military weapons.

    Well I'm officially loving the game. Played quite a bit lately and once I started finding some guns things got easier. I was able to kill a couple of bandits before they could take my shit which means I run around with a little more confidence.

    I think I was killed by a hacker though last night.

    It was night time and I was creeping up on hill that overlooks compos city. I was prone and using binocs so I could scope out the area before entering. I literally camp outside of cities for awhile looking for other players. If I see one I avoid them at all costs because EVERYONE kills me on first site.

    Anyway I could just make out a guy running between building and coming right for me. So it seemed anyway. He was pretty far away but it was like he was B-lining for me. So I crawled back down the hill, stoodup and ran my ass off in the other direction. I was popping granola bars and this dude came up on me so fast and I got one shot off and he got instant kill on me.

    I'm telling you this guy was far away from me when I started sprinting. He should never have caught up to me. I've been chased many times now and there is no way this guy shuld have caught me. But he was running really fast and I lost a lot of kit. I had several guns, large pack, body armor/helm and my pack was completely full. I was on my way past Compos to the safe zone to unload.

    Anyway...it sucked because I am 99% sure he was cheating.


    I really dig the game though now... :/

    Glad your liking the game man. Regarding hackers, they are doing their part. They've banned quite a few hackers already obviously not all and possibly new people start hacking every other day. Once that dude flags their detection system a few times they will be alerted of suspicious behavior and ban that guy too. Also I think they take reports or evidence (if you have any) of people hacking as well. I too have lost gear due to a hacker, seems like there are far less now though.

    I wasn't expecting them to release on steam so soon. Steam has released beta's but they have been under a beta title.

    In their defense they claim to always be developing the game and never actually done. So if they feel like they have the hackers beaten and the mechanics polished to release on steam, so be it. They better have a patch on the way to give all the stuff they promise on their steam page.

    This is just an excuse to release something sloppy to the public.

    I don't feel like they've released something sloppy (as in I find the game entertaining) and up to the point they released on steam have been honest and upfront with everything they said they were going to do before they did it. That said, if they don't release a patch soon giving steam purchasers the complete list of features that is on their steam page they are giving people legitimate reasons to get mad at them.

    The only things that aren't true so far are...

    Up to 100 Players per Game Server

    No Classes, No Levels, No Caps: Create your own survival campaign, gain experience points and spend it to learn dozen of available skills

    The skills option is in the game you just can't click on it yet, you can even already start to earn experience points, so its obviously going to be added soon. They tried 70 players on Colorado and got to many complaints and changed it. They probably plan on having a 100 player capable map at some point since there really is no reason why they couldn't do that. So on second thought, I see nothing to worry about on the steam page which is why they probably went ahead and released it there.
