Well, I'm looking forward to it. The Elite Forces is going to be a great boon to GNE, and Precursors... However I need to write a news item about it, and possibly post an announcement thread... Not right now, though.

Ohiyo! Doubt my real name would matter here, just call me Guardian or Tobal whichever ya feel like. ;D I definitely can't hold a candle to the above GoRCs computer wise, which is prob why I'm mainly just do server admin duties. I'm moving over to [GnE] (or whatever the tag will be) at the request of Neo and hope I can help in one way or another.  ::)

Well, welcome aboard then! If Neo likes you, then that's good enough for me.

I am Caenus (OH GOD RUN IN TERROR!  THE MAD SPAMMER HAS ARRIVED!!).

 ;D

I am also a GoRC H3ad and sadly won't be joining the GN:EF clan, although I will be supporting G33x Nexus in any way possible. 

I am VP of a graphic design and web hosting company (and am also the head webmaster/coder/programmer).

I am not on the development team for Precursors, although I AM going to be helping Morgul and Contingency with webdesign and such (as well as being a mathematics consultant - this'll be interesting, eh morgul?)

Anywho . . . Yeah.  That's me.

I have ZERO doubt about that... I am not particularly good at FPS games. I enjoy them - my favorite type of game, but still....

Of course, I don't have time to get my skills up to snuff, so I doubt there's much I can do besides play the human shield role. Ah well.

If there's one thing I suck at worse than computer games, it's FPS games using a pad - FPSes were made for a keyboard and a mouse. I can't play it any other way.

Mouselook pwns all.

Indeed.  There's something about the aiming reticle for Halo that lends itself to the console though.  Every other FPS I prefer on the computer.

Very true. I am much better at Halo for XBox then Halo for PC. With any luck, Precursors will work well with both; I plan on playing it using my XBox controller on my PC.

Yeah.  I was wondering though, is it possible to unlock the camera for 3rd person flight.  If the view were within the cockpit, then the locked camera wouldn't be quite as disorienting.
