I've ordered Windows 7, so that should come in the post some time next week.

The RAM I wanted was out of stock, but I found it cheaper elsewhere, so I can get the computer for under 350! I'll collect the hardware from the shops I've reserved it from tomorrow morning.

Generals 2 - I'm almost ready for you!

Is your Window 7 32bit or 64bit?

What your Spec of Computer that you are building? :)

Shoot em up? Check out R Type Delta(PSone) or Final R Type  or Gradius V(Both PS 2) all are Hard Game!

It will be 64 bit Windows 7 to take full advantage of the 8GB of DDR3 RAM.
The CPU is a Quad Core 3GHz Athlon 2.
The graphics card is a Radeon HD6450 with 1GB of RAM with DirectX 11 support.

Windows 7 won't arrive until some time next week, but I've finished setting up the hardware and I get a nice shiny blue BIOS screen to look at when I turn it on.

Time for a beer.  :cheers:

@hellfire - I'm afraid Generals 2 is looking like it will be another strategy game. The chances of it including a shmup mini game are slim, but EA have been known to make unexpected changes to the series in the past, so it could happen.

Just found the news from General 2

EU

The most advanced looking faction

We use current or experimental military vehicles for reference

Introduce angular shapes that convey sleekness

Final unit designs should appear fast, efficient and well maintained

Structures are constructed modularly and the functionality drives the overall design




GLA

The most heavily modified faction

Both civilian and military vehicle references are used for inspiration

Create an identifiable chassis and combine elements from other vehicles and weapons

Add welded plates and equipment in large amounts

Final unit design should be an asymmetrical blend of parts to form a coherent whole

Structures are a mix of repurposed building materials that are hastily a assembled into a ragged form




APA

The heaviest, most solid looking faction

Current Soviet or Chinese military vehicles are used for reference

We create a solid chassis then introduce rounded elements

Add significant amounts of armor plating and stowed gear

Final unit design should be appear strong and built for survivability on the battlefield

Structures are inspired by traditional Asian architecture but built from reinforced steel girders and concrete


I dont know how many general there are but I heard some gamer played on it and say it is best things they have done!

The Generals "Junkyard" and "Kitbash" look like they'll have similar styles based mainly on salvage, if the tools they're holding are any indication of their skills.

I loved Generals and I would like for this game to be good but I have zero confidence in EA at this point.
