But six_storm. We should play against each other with even teams. I'll go easy on you.
Also, I was further handicapped by my sytems freezing over and over. It would just freeze for a few seconds, but it happened so frequently it kept causing me to die. Once it did it as I was trying to pounce as the Hunter...when I tried to crouch, it froze, and when I was able to move again, I was dead before I could try to crouch again. I hope that doesn't happen again.

I'll probably be on tonight, so we can get a game in. Came into work early, so I'll be goin' home early.
Even though I was having problems with the freezing, and losing over and over was frustrating, I still had fun. I'm looking forward to playing with y'all again, and hopefully I'll be getting better at it soon.

I'm gonna play DOC a song on one of the game's jukeboxes...and at the end of the first verse, they'll come after him, and he really will die screaming.

Heya Tom, it's Bob, from the office down the hall
Good to see you buddy, how've you been?
Things have been okay for me except that I'm a zombie now
I really wish you'd let us in
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
But here's an FYI: you're all gonna die screaming

All we want to do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise
If you open up the door
We'll all come inside and eat your brains

If you stop the pr0n torrents, the disk defragmenting and the multiple virus scans, I think you'll get better performance.

The hiccuping is more than likely because you're using integrated video.

The GPU itself is more than capable of handling the load- but it probably doesn't have enough framebuffer, thus it's having to fetch data from either the System RAM or the hard drive- which is immensely slower.

Solution would be a better video card of course- or more RAM. Which ever ya'll can more easily afford.

you can probably find a better-than-integrated video card on craigslist or something.
