[15:25:14] <EVA-ZZ> hi
[15:26:22] <EVA-ZZ> does anyone use wincvs? got some serious probs. Darke, Lightkey, oaQ^, sbx, servus?
[15:26:46] <EVA-ZZ> or perhaps u, megawatt?
[15:26:51] <EVA-ZZ> or wjp?
[15:27:36] <EVA-ZZ> is there a support channel perhaps?
[15:37:36] <-- EVA-ZZ has left IRC (" HydraIRC -> http://www.hydrairc.com <- The future of IRC")
[15:38:13] <Lightkey> maybe? :)
[15:40:10] <wjp> hm, he was here, in #uwadv, _and_ he messaged me privately
[15:40:23] <wjp> but even then he managed to just miss me :-)
[15:41:37] <Lightkey> http://bash.org/?48150 :)
[15:43:26] <wjp> :-)

[15:49:56] <-- oaQ^ has left IRC (adams.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[15:51:55] <sbx> i was busy killing people in the subway station with the crowbar and flaming anyone who tries to escape
[15:52:45] <sbx> deus ex has a completely different feel if you play without any computer skills, even if you dont go killing everyone

[16:16:07] <wjp> hm, I only played through it once
[16:16:13] <wjp> had fairly good computer skills
[16:16:45] <wjp> started out as a sniper, although that nanotech blade converted me to melee slowly :-)
[16:34:42] <sbx> When I had computer skills it never occured to me you can take out the NSF emp generator just by tossing a LAM at it, or shooting the hazardous barrels.
[16:35:25] <sbx> I was converted to melee instantly after getting the blue sword. It's a little too easy with that.
[16:35:32] <sbx> So I don't use it exclusively.
[16:35:57] <sbx> give the other side a slight chance at least
[17:05:19] <wjp> you're too kind ;-)
[17:06:00] <sbx> still use it on MJ12 commandos... requires TWO hits to take them down if they are running towards you and you don't have combat strength enabled
[17:06:32] <wjp> I can't quite remember if a single sniper shot could take them down
[17:07:07] <sbx> well I'm probably the only person who never got the sniper rifle
[17:07:31] <sbx> I'm sure there is still a chance to since I havn't finished the game, but I probably won't. The other weapons are too fun.
[17:07:57] <sbx> I just got to Paris.
[17:11:22] <sbx> except for the damage, the silenced pistol works as a sniper rifle with range, accuracy, and laser modifications
[17:11:55] <sbx> it takes two shots in the head to kill anyone
[17:11:55] <wjp> the damage is rather significant :-)
[17:12:08] <sbx> i thought so
[17:12:34] <sbx> i only recently learned that bullets can kill robots
[17:12:45] <sbx> use a scramble grenade on them and they are able to kill eachother
[17:12:53] <sbx> many many bullets but its possible
[17:16:49] <sbx> it's*
[17:17:42] <sbx> The HE ammo gives me a reason to keep the assault rifle. Too bad there isn't much of it to go around.
[17:21:02] <sbx> One pointless and stupid thing I did recently was try to knock out people on the ship instead of killing them. It didn't cross my mind that if I breach the hull, they will just go down with the ship and be killed anyway - until I started the pumps and the place started shaking.
[17:21:58] <sbx> then I couldn't believe how many darts and how much health I wasted trying to be nice
[17:22:56] <Lightkey> haha
[17:24:06] <sbx> never again... from now on I will play as a Crusader with no remorse, no regret, and no mercy on the conspirators and any unwitting pawns
[17:25:09] <Lightkey> oooh, Crusader: no mercy?
[17:25:28] <sbx> if we have time
[17:26:35] <sbx> in that game he blows up the entire planet
[17:27:05] <sbx> but I'm sure he had no choice
