    Host Advantage

    Quote:Original post by Riviera Kid if you host gears of war is the server running on your xbox 360? Thats a bit gey seeing as you have to pay £5 per month to play online. Are there many dedicated servers? There are no dedicated servers on gears of war. Come to think of it I havent seen any console games that has dedicated servers. On another note if you are on a dedicate server and your connection is alot faster then everyone else playing, do you benefit from this "host advantage"?

    Quote:Original post by TheUnbeliever At a guess, they have the lowest ping (i.e. 0 - it's local) and all the testing for whether or not you scored a hit is done on the server - so lag doesn't affect them so. Can you elaborate a little more. So since there is no lag their bullets hit you first? how does that make they shots stronger?

    Host Advantage

    I was curious as to why some online games like gears of war has a "host advantage" like it seems that they weapons are stronger. I wanted to know why network wise, why that happens.

    The Xbox 360 ate my homework...

    No, my friend had the EXACT same problem. When he opens his disc tray the disc is spinning WAY to fast. Eventually his 360 stopped playing game disc all together and he had to play his downloaded games. But call Microsoft and have it sent in for repairs. Its just a defective console.

    what changed you?

    Something that changed me was in high school. I just started(for no real reason) hanging out by myself no friends and listening to music, it made me alot less self conscience, I dont even care when people criticize. Its like a gift and a curse though. Like now when friends want to hang out, I dont want to because I rather be by myself. I not sure if thats a negative but whatever.
  8. Thank you. I understand now.
  9. Whats the difference between ++i and i++. Assuming of course I is an int?

    Wal-mart to leave Germany..closing 85 stores

    Original post by Will F Quote:Original post by isiahil I dont know about you but the overwhelming majority of people I know live from paycheck to paycheck so Wal-Mart helps them out alot. Quote:That substandard wage that you are talking about would be real appealing to you if you had little or no other alternatives. And how is their wages substandard if its over minimum wage? I think the people who work their get paid between $9 and $10 an hour. Quote:I have 2 problems with it 1) $10 per hour for 40 hours per week at 52 weeks per year is $20,800 per year, which would be hard to survive on - plus Walmart appears to by trying to lower the number of full time employees Tell me one retail chain store that allows you to "survive" at the lower level positions. There arent too many. You can't expect to "survive" with one of those jobs. I had a job at sears that paid $6.50 an hour and I know target is not paying starting you off at $9.00. So why everybody complaining about their pay when they are doing good. Even though I dont support Wal-Mart either.

    Wal-mart to leave Germany..closing 85 stores

    Quote:Original post by OpenGL_Guru My question to us americans is why do the employees of walmart here accept a substandard wage? why dont they all just walk out like people did in Germany with 30 stores. Why is america so strong yet so weak on labor laws? i dont understand it. The other thing that walmart and large corporation feast on is stupidity and laziness. In Germany its come to my attention that shoppers are more aware of what they are buying(again quality) instead of just picking up crap. Why do americans not care about quality? why is it always about how cheap something is? Ive shopped elsewhere(i never shop at walmart) and for most things walmart is not that much cheaper and on some things its the same price. I understand that in some places walmart may be the only game in town. The only box store that i can think of that walmart is afraid of is Costco and Target which can compete with them because they offer usually better value.. even though you might pay a little more..the quality is much better. Why dont americans embrace this more? Ill tell you why.. because people in the US have become greedy, money hungry and lazy and WE are stupid. not you or me or anyone on this board...i just mean we as a nation have become lazy and uneducated..where everyone is all about cheap instead of quality. YES i hate walmart and i am sure they do good things but if people would do some research they would find that there are more shopping alternatives. I dont know about you but the overwhelming majority of people I know live from paycheck to paycheck so Wal-Mart helps them out alot. You are saying that Wal-Mart has bad quality items when they have the exact same brands as everybody else. That substandard wage that you are talking about would be real appealing to you if you had little or no other alternatives. And how is their wages substandard if its over minimum wage? I think the people who work their get paid between $9 and $10 an hour.
