On your computer open up my computer and then go to organize > folder and search options. On the new tab go to view and find hide extensions for known file types. Turn it off so it shows u the file types. Now you should be able to change the name and extension of the file you just downloaded. Change it to register.exe
Double click on the "heat online" icon and it will start up and download all the updates. Then right click on the heat online icon and go to properties. Now take the file you downloaded and renamed earlier (register.exe) move it to the folder. Double click on it and the game will start up. Enter your email, enter a password (s) then click register. Then exit the game and start the game normally. The reason for this is you're using an older game file as the new update uploaded recently is glitched and the register does not work.
Anyhow i love it. It actually has real tracks similar to laguna seca it also has licenses.. it has police smashing things similar to the classic need for speed where you gotta stop the racers etc. Pretty interesting.
Funny you mention this. Aside from Portal, it's just about the only game that I've gotten into over the past decade or so.
I like it because it's simple. You don't have to spend large amounts of time learning complex controls, or exploring a huge virtual world, or leveling-up your character, or any of that BS. You can just pop straight in and start playing. If you're bored and have a half hour to kill, you can jump in and play a couple of rounds.
but immediately didn't like it because of how much different from the original team fortress (which i loved) was.
Of course now i sound like some kind of hipster gamer nerd.
Honestly, one of the things I really love about TF2 is how much the overall gameplay style resembles the first generation LAN-based multiplayer FPS games that I loved back when in was in college, like Doom 2, Rise of the Triad, Quake, and Duke Nukem 3D. It's brutal, fast, and highly simplistic, and doesn't take itself too seriously.
I just realized something. Wolfenstein 3D was released in 1992.
THAT WAS TWENTY YEARS AGO.
There are people in college today who hadn't even been BORN yet when I was killing pixellated ***** on my '386.
I dont know if it has been mentioned by me, but for those who love battlefield FPS, cant go wrong with BF P4F, its BF2, with updated graphics and weapons. Fly jets n' ****, just like good ole BF games.
I just got a beta key to play Planetside 2, and from the time the servers where open, it was very fun. Its like BF2142, Tribes, and Red Faction all had an orgy with sony and this was the spawn child. Its going to be good if you are into the scifi FPS feel. Its one large *** map so far, and I mean LARGE.
Like most F2Ps, there are upgrades, implants and perks with in-game currency, premium payed accounts, and irl funds to online cash, like sonycash. But so far its not one of those f2ps that make it super difficult for those who dont want to spend a dime on it.
This is beta, so much can be changed, but from what I have experienced so far minus the casual glitches like most betas, its going to be a very fun game.
