Explain the second picture then.
There's no way those pics are legit. I held the Firefly myself, and it was NOT that fucking HUGE. It's comparabile in size to a RF20 (kinda). Unless murokumo is a friggin midget, the Firefly just ain't that big.
What is it with the string of BULLSHIT on these boards lately?

I don't own one of these guns, just seems like that would be it.
CONGRATULATIONS! A SMART PERSON!
I could sware that picture is photoshopped. The gun looks like it's in the exact same angle as it is in the preview picture.
God, I didn't even expect that picture to actually fool people into believing that I had a firefly. First off, my post which triggered the picture was a post about a prototype dart tag (obvious knock at yourworstnightmare ) and the people who weren't sure about the picture:Notice those curves at the cocker slide that shouldn't be rounded? Notice the crap on the barrel assembly which should be thick, solid, and not see through? Notice lighting on the gun compared to my pitch black desk?
One more:Compare the size of the gun to the can of soda it's over.
Yeah. And with that I am off like panties on prom night.
looks like my star wars post was a bit too successful. it was picked up by a number of sites and on friday a surge of 19,500 visitors in 6 hours used almost 80% of my monthly bandwidth allocation, putting me over the limit for the month. according to alexa, this site shot all the way up to around the 175,000th most popular site on the internet. ooooooohhhhh!
Ding, Nitefinder.I think that up to this point Hasbro's policy was to use triangle-head screws on any gun with electrical components - such as the aforementioned electric eel and comlink, and I'm pretty sure they were on the Eagle Eye as well. It makes sense to discourage cocky 12 year olds from trying to mod guns with electrical components, if for no other reason than to assuage concerned parents.
when has there ever been ANYTHING except philips screws?
Yeah, the controller sucks
My god, how do you know it sucks? Have you felt it in your hands? People claimed that the xbox controller looked sexy but how did it preform when it went to the hands of the millions who bought an xbox for Halo?
Just to clear up a few things also:
-Killzone 2 was not in-game footage, this doesn't mean thats what it'll look like when it comes out however.
-The wireless controllers are 1 host and 7 guests, which is 8 people. Do you really think Sony is stupid enough to make an odd number so you can't have 4 player teams?
I buy whichever console has the best third-party developers. Even though I don't like sony, thats the reason i'm proud to own a PS2.
Here's the thing:
The firing pin doesn't go all the way back in after I pull it back, but this can be solved with a rubber band.
The firing pin can wiggle, and sometimes if I move it around air leaks.
The reason I'm asking for JLego/Black Wrath is because I know you two have dissected an SM5000 valve which is the same construction as the valve on a SM500.
My question: Is the hook at the end of the firing pin supposed to be glued onto the piece holding the rubber seal? I cut the pump off the airtank, and noticed it can move around quite a bit.
Stolen from JLego's old topic, this is the pin+hole I'm talking about.
Dude. Get your fucking ass off the chair, go get a dictionary, and read the definition of atmosphere. You're doing nothing but making yourself look like a dumbass by still posting here.
That's because your watching the Killzone 2 trailer. The helghast (killzone enemies) are suppost to be detailless black shadows, it's part of the atmosphere of the game.
So part of the atmosphere is for devlopers to be lazy and make more crappy games where you cant see youre enemy. It seems like to me just a cop-out.
First off; you better tell me what game you're talking about because there's probably a reason theyre like that. Have you seen Killzone 2 dude?From what ive seen of PS3 in one game the enemys were still expressionless, detailless black shadows. The graphics were also not comparable to the trailers ive seen of 360.
I eat Microsoft fanboys, kid.
Dont make me come through the computer and crush you. That is the worst statment I ever heard.
Revolution or the PS3 are probably gonna come out on top.
Exactly. Microsofts affiliated devlopers just used it better making the graphics better.
but it doesn't really matter, just how the developers use it
Also, ps2 wrecked their system by overloading it with sports games and thell probably do it again. Thats all that ever came out for it basically. Sure RE4 came out for it but GameCube had it and even with better graphics.
Besides, if the Xbox 360 is so great, why is there no graphical difference between the Xbox and 360 versions of Tiger Woods Golf 2005?
And overloading with sports games? PS2 had an awesome group of third-party developers and there were plenty of arcade ports, fighting, and action games.
Another thing to consider-Microsoft and Nintendo are going to be losing in the sense that the PS3 is using the disc format which is probably going to become the standard within the next few years. And if you whine about "who needs 25 gb blah" realise that you can't fit hi-definition video onto a dvd. It's going to keep going up and up.

Have you looked at the specs for both? PS3 is actually a little more powerful (the graphics card is better than 2 hi-end Nvidia cards) but it doesn't really matter, just how the developers use it. I don't think any company except Treasure will attempt to really max out the system in their games.
I don't know if our friend can do such a task, so I'll try to do it.
I think the 360 will topple Sony simply because of its raw technical power. It's got a custom ATI chip that is a generation ahead of the cards that are top of the line today (if that makes any sense to you guys, you're geniuses.). Anyways, the 360 is very customizable, which will be a BIG go-getter for the fringe players and the hardcore alike. Also, it's got three 3.2 GHz processors. More information on the system can be found here.
You won't really be able to tell which is most powerful until they're played this winter.
The PS3 has 8 wireless spot. Also you can hook it up to 2 tv's at once and have either gameplay similar to Nintendo DS's dual screens(minus the touching) or have 4 on each screen. Pretty awesome stuff.
I liked the PS2 because of the great third-party support, but I really don't know what I want now, the Revolution or PS3.
And nintendo came back from the dead, after a sub-par gamecube, this is looking good...especially because the online service lets you download and game from their library(nes, snes, n64, etc.)
Oh, had to post this too:
Those screenshots are pretty nice, looks like PS3 calibur stuff.
Here's the official specs btw:

To sum up the important stuff regarding XBL:
There will be two versions of Xbox Live. Silver is free (everyone gets it), and Gold is a paid subscription, like the current XBL. It looks like Xbox Live will be free on the weekends for everyone; Gold members will get it all the time, obviously. Current Xbox Live accounts will carry over to the 360 and become Gold Xbox Live accounts. Both Gold and Silver members will be able to download demos, trailers, and other content through XBL.
This info seems pretty legit, and some insiders have confirmed that this is indeed a real leak. At this rate, you have to wonder if Microsoft will have anything left to reveal at the MTV unveiling on May 12.
And also the maverick is pretty neat but I really don't see it being effective in wars; the air seal is too poor to achieve good ranges accompined by a subpar spring and rather bulky casing that screams, "FUCK HOLSTERS!"
Uh, I don't think he just wants to fire 20 grains of rice...
I am sorry; I don't think you can have rice as ammunition. First, every grain of rice is different, so there would be a horrible seal between the rice and the barrel. You would also have a hard time putting the rice into the barrel. You would have a hard time finding tubing that would have a small enough ID (Inner Diameter) to fit rice. Finally, as you said, there would be the problem of rice falling into the firing mechanism.
Open up the gun and open up that red turret, then cover the entire bottom part of the inside with mesh and cut the long poles off of the air restrictors. Those air restrictors are necessary because if you don't leave them in the air will go other places than the barrel.
Don't try increasing the piston pressure, it won't be useful.
The only thing now is how to make the rice not fall out of the front, mabye putting something there that comes out when the rice hits it?
Clean job on photoshopping that other barrel on though. It actually could be possible to mislead a noob.
Besides, I don't think Hasbro would be stupid enough to make a gun that would take over 5 minutes to get battleworthy.
The only problem with the ratchet blast is that if you put a beefier spring in rather than the weak one inside it gets a lot harder to cock.Ooh not really. You ever heard of the Ratchet Blast? It's simplicity is fecking beautiful. Really, all you have to do is make it so that when the plunger is pulled back, the turret rotates.
I think that sounds damn near impossible. A multi-shot spring gun would be hard to make. I have to admit it would be sweet!
I wonder how hard it would be to integrate the internals of a BBB into a SM3K frame, under the hope of producing an 8 shot BBB?
