    Heard about that before, but I had no idea it was free to play. From what I've seen so far, it's looking a bit like Unreal and Quake. Seems fun.

    picked it up today, it's a lot of fun. Also, it's free, so who cares?

    fast paced and keeps the classic tribes spirit if you remember that game.

    Steel Stallion, I did play Tribes 2 a lot during my younger days. I even suggested it to my friends at a LAN about a year ago.
    However graphically Tribes 2 has not aged very well. Thats why I was hyped to see a new Tribes! This new Tribes has everything the older once had exept fewer vehicles, but they plan on adding more in the future! :)

    My name is Zpider @ Tribes, if you manage to find me feel free to give me a poke.

    camping generators as an infiltrator and sticky bombing people who come and fix it.

    my entire experience in a nutshell, never gets old.

    Really? How ironic because I like camping generators (or flag) as a technician.
    Getting blown into pieces by infiltrators, but I am not mad. Because I laugh manically when my towers gun down people.

    This game is, in the lack of better words to describe it, orgasmicly awesome.
    Add narrat0r to your friends list if you want to brutally murder me.

    I agree that it is orgasmicly awesome, just wish my computer was that too. My computer freezes up a lot during gameplay, which I use as a excuse everytime I die. Anyway, I will add you, so you can see for yourself :D

    Low?! I have them at minimal, every texture looks like a blurry mess. Still that wouldn't mind me at all if I didn't lag that much.

    I reckon that was a good computer 6 years ago, though I feel that I need to get me a newer one when I can afford. The computer freezes up when there is a lot of happening, say 4-5 people in the same spot shooting wildly at everything that moves.

    Try these ini tweaks: http://forum.hirezstudios.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=314&t=68199

    You can also post there and give some information to hi-rez if you think that will do anything. Couldn't possibly hurt.

    When I deleted the tribes.ini file it solved 99.9% of all the problems I encountered in the game. Thanks for the link Voukras.
