I feel ya, but nobody tries to play a dead game for 4-5 hours. Must be something about it you and it like.
it is not the gameplay that makes it dead. it is the support and the nearly non existing community, the bugs and lack of mp-infrastructure. as i already payed for it and i like the gameplay i still play arround with that cadaver.
but sure, you can ignore the facts only because someone still plays it.
btw. and i did nnot played for 4-5h. i wished to, i waited for 4-5h to get a view games where half of the got discos and all were laggy. you get the point?
you see how much i like the gamedesign itself that i still try to play it?
edit: @spooky__ donnu what it was yesterday but i saw very many people ahving the same problem as the op, including myself. and up to yesterday at least a problem like that i never had.
