Raw, Woodie, Darklord and Commander joined Tone for the first foray into the new gaming frontier. Part’s wasn’t notably absent.
A cold and frosty evening saw the new firepot eventually encouraged into existence with Shellite providing some explosive warmth to dry out the wet timber.
As the first part of the evening was chewed up installing and configuring GRID,COD2 on several machines and various technical issues with patches, the fire became a focus for social interaction.
Sometime after 10pm, all PC’s were finally sorted and ready to play. We had a several rounds in COD2, then fired up GRID which performed exceptionally.
For future reference and agents not in attendance (for example, PARTS) should be aware that COD2 should have the 1.3 update applied, and GRID should only be updated to version 1.2! (NOT 1.3)
To check your version navigate to – C:\Program Files (x86)\Codemasters\GRID
right click on the GRID.exe, select properties, details tab and view the File Version is (22.214.171.124).
Hopefully in future missions we can get some of the other new games now available on the list locked and loaded onto all machines. Another candidate is COD World at War.
