|Just bought another 10 inventory slots, thats 42 I'v got now. Lot of good weapons I didn't want to part with. Also I turned on the damage numbers to see what weapons were the most effective.|

Having a few problems with the game and (more likely) my PC this evening chaps. Going to make a cuppa while everything reboots and warms back up.

Yeah, getting some issues here too. Still enjoying it when it's running though, and think that's almost everyone in the clan now. Not that it's any use as Clan chat only works sometimes.
Yeah the chat is pretty awful. Its a real shame as its pretty fun when teaming together. The Group mission myself and Blindmonkey ran earlier was pretty fun, though it was pugged with a couple of mute randoms
Voice chat or nutin'!
Yea was a good run through!! Need to do more of those! No issues here apart from the weird text chat echo!

Does intel (recordings?) give you place names?
I navigate by waypoints on shops and things. Get told where to drive most of the time.

What's the general impressions with this? I'm a big fan of Trion via Rift but does this game look like it has distance. Tempted by what I've seen so far.
why do the servers keep going down at 11! /o\
Whizzo and I just managed one of the co-op runs in the last 30 mins - very fun!
Well that was a fun evening again, clan chat is certainly very flakey at the moment so hope that gets fixed, voice isn't working too well at all either, unless that was the random's fault in the co-op mission rather than the game.
Either way considering most early launch niggles it's not so bad in comparison to a lot of MMOs I've played.
Really enjoying it.

In game chat on 360 is def dodgy.
Glad to see more on 360! Games like this are always better with friends, so the more the merrier!
@Whizzo My sniping is definitely getting better, maybe even 1 in 10 shots make it though now
I ended up muting the grp channel, as there was so much noise from someones mic.
Like that you get messages during the game telling you when the servers will be turned off. Then plan a last min Xp raid
Was in a major ark fall when I got the 30 min warning. Fight against the hellion started with 15 mins to go. Then a mad rush to finish no surprise we didn't win. Was a much smoother battle as well, no slowdown or vanishing monarch hell bugs
Also autoshotgun that fires grenades, carries 10 shells and you carry 250 shells.just too much fun

Got a legendary weapon on opening only my second lockbox. Unfortunately it's a sawn off shotgun, and I'm not massively keen on those.
Guess I'll have to start liking it though!

Deleted the 72 MB save file and that solved the crit error message on log in.Plus did not lose my character.Good timing though as they have taken servers down for 30 minutes patching.
Is it worth opening lock boxes then? I've sort of been put off by the cost.
I was just having some fun too. Dagnammit! I was we'll warned at 15mins to go though.
My tiny inventory is full. I have options to delete, but can't seem to access the break down for scrap etc options yet. Does that stuff unlock later? I am only lev 39 just now.can you sell unwanted crap somewhere?
I am going to see if there is a wiki for this stuff. The game manual only has the controller layout and a load of user agreement shit FFS!
I'd assumed that Zulu and whizzo had paired up, I tried to work out how to try and form a full group but with clan chat being dodgy and no way to send PM's it didn't really happen, maybe we should try Skype or something next time.
I've squandered some of my UE bits on a lockbox but tbh until I really know what stuff means there wasn't really much point I've not seen a huge improvement in e lower levels. Using drops and a fully modded blot action rifle I picked up from the ranch you reach (to the east of the crash) which seemed to have some decent stuff in the normal scrip store
You will get the break down option later as you level up. If you breakdown a weapon you will get Ark salvage back(green currency you getting whilst looting)
Can sell at the vendors
You will find many keys and make money easily in game, so is quick to save upto a level 4 or couple of level 3 boxes.
Hardly buy anything in shops at the moment
@Randomlampy I got your invites! But they expire so quickly! We were in the middle of a huge fight that Whizzo dragged us into (just because it was on the way), really sorry about that!
I curse the lack of PM in this game, and all the chat in general.
You have to unlock the whole breakup equipment and also larger inventory? I'm 64 and just got a larger inventory and the breaking if equipment was a few upgrades ago? Also I have found you can only break and delete certain equipment, anyone else noticed that?
@ZuluHero ah OK that makes sense, no worries nice to know it still works. Clans and general chats foibles could be ignored if we could at least PM, tis the only major issue I've seen.
Not got to the bottom of the breakdown/sell system either BM had tons of stuff I couldnt sell or break my inventory is running nearly maxed permanently for now.
I should really call it a night, but I may try and play a bit more.
This is a bad sign.
Yea it's weird isn't it! Like it's happy fir me to sell a "purple" weapon but the scattergun I got at the start oh no! That needs to stay with me! Ha
I will be back on after watching Father Ted Speed 3

Even bonkers ones like that when you're on your own, bloody annoying that when I returned he was fully healed. I did manage to kite him towards the road though so others, including yourself ZH, got involved! :-D
They really need to rejig the chat interface etc, at least on PC, no PMs is rather ridiculous.

Well just did Scrapper large Ark fall on Xbox
Much smoother, no vanishing enemies. now i have to find a hellbug one.was a good fight as well. Got handed two loot items after the results screen. Grenade and a shield, level up as well
@Whizzo Heh, I saw the hulking great thing and thought I would help out. It's hard to resist as you know all too well!
I'm always (pleasantly) surprised how we keep bumping into each other
