I regret buying sonic rush. Seeing as the game had great reviews I thought it would better than the recent sonic games. The special stages and boss fights are very unique. The graphics are great too. The stages themselves suck though. All around you on every stage there are drop off points. Yes, eve...

But in many games I imagine it would be good to have full control over both. You could make an first person style fencing game that uses the analog to move and the remote to slash.

What I don't get is why do you have to plug in the analog stick into the remote? Wouldn't this limit the functionality of the remote? I imagine it would be very hard to control a fencing game with the second piece attached. Why not make the 2 pieces sync up wirelessly? Then you could move both of yo...

Doing anything strenuous with 1GB of ram (video editing, capturing) the main bottleneck is the cpu (except for games-graphics card). When under a heavy load it is very rare that you will see the ram usage go over 512MB. This is from my own experience (64 3200 1GB ram) and of others that I have read....

2GB of ram seems overkill, I really don't think it will offer any improvement over 1GB. I think you should order 1GB of ram and use the extra money on a faster Athlon 64 processor. You will probably see better performance all around.

Wrong, some NTSC dcs from October - December 2000 have a revised bios that does not allow reading cdrs. Some from this period can read cdrs, I have a november 2000 that can.

AFAIK, any modem works. If it is not working for you, the problem is not the modem. Try testing with the planetweb browser, AFAIK it does not require phone voltage.

Your dc simply won't read cdrs, it has bios protection. Try to get a different one.

3D sonic games can work. I loved SA1, it was pretty fast paced. The only bad thing about it was Big the Cat. Every game afterwards was crap though. I say get rid of all this dark (omg evil sonic) and hero stuff. Just play it out how it used to be, sonic, tails, and knuckles. Sonic does not need to g...
