    Planned changes to "Big Advanced"

    EVERYONE'S production is being kicked down across the board which means, relatively speaking, everyone's rankings will stay approximately the same. In other words, 100 is the new 1000 or whatever. It's just a matter of degrees.

    SOLVED Just got Crysis today & need some help

    PunkBuster is required for online play, and GameSpy is the built-in server browser to join multiplayer servers. It's up to you if you want those.

    Help: Any vmware player expert here?
