oohhhh i see... hey that's a great game!

my fav fps is counterstrike... but the most recent release is quite disappointing. quite a fair bit of cool features, but the game play has become slightly more sucky...

RTCW & CS....Would love to see Tribes 1 ported......can install and setup scripts etc through Wine, but as soon as you load the game to play and hit the keyboard...it dies.....this game is the only reason I have a Win boot at all....after playing it a few hours nightly and many hours on the weekends for the last 3 1/2 yrs, it's hard to give it up......
