  • 1.04

    I was just watching the boondock marine video and was thinking if anyone would be intersted in installing 1.04 using Bry's 1.04 steam installer and maybe getting like an 8 on 8 game going on.

    I have to say I had the most fun playing 1.04 than any other version. Although it had a lot of bugs it was just F'ing fun. There would be 2 hour + games that would just never end. I remember one game where a marine team went through about 5 comms in a 3.5 hour game.

    I think it would be cool to play 1.04 again. I miss the 200 bullet hmg that did full 20 damage to buildings, fast grenade launcher, babblers, the coordinated jetpack hmg rush, and the list goes on...

    So would it be worth a shot, or should I just forget about?

          I wouldn't mind playing a few rounds of 1.04. That's the version the game was on when I quit playing way back when.

          It was a big change when I started playing again a couple of months ago. :)

            1.04 is like cold mashed potatoes compared to today. No, thank you. I'm satisfied enough by playing the old maps in today's version. Yeah, it creates gameplay problems, but it meets my needs for walking down memory lane.

              The only change I never quite understood was why the mines no longer had laser trips on them. Though I dont think they ever had them when placed on the floor.

                Marines (the better trained ones of today) will walk all over 1.04 aliens.

                  That was purely for performance reasons. Laser Trips required a lot of server cycles and also really hurt people's FPS. Enough of them at one time would crash the server. (Yes, you can still do that, but it takes a lot more mines now.)

                  Do you know how much hp SKULKS had back in 1.04? Throw on Carapace and think todays Gorgy. Except, they also had smaller hitboxes that didn't quite line up with the models, so most of your bullets will miss--especially if you're a better trained Marine of today.

                  The thing that hurt 1.04 aliens wasn't the skulks, it was the fact that you couldn't evolve to Fade until the 2nd Hive was finished.

                    I think I lack the ability to reconstruct how 1.04 worked back in the day. I remember onos firing a paralizing thing, babblers, fades having bile bomb, gorges getting more of the res than other forms. And I never got to play marines because my FPS always died near MS. Gorge was pretty much the only thing I could do.

                    Oh yeah, DC first FTW!

                      To this day, I still liked 1.04 for the fact that people couldn't fade until 2nd hive was up.

                        You're so cut.

                        I'd be in for some hot fudge brownies with ice cream and chocolate syrup (1.04). Just tell me when and where. Hope I can make it.

                            Well first we need a dedicated server to play on. I can host one I guess or if anyone else wants to do it because I'm nub at it.

                              And the fact that a single good HMG JP would consistantly eliminate hives left and right.

                              As I recall, once marines teched to JP, it was all over but the crying.
