Nice, but why wouldn't there be a way to make a translator?

Sorry I wasn't able to join your stream. If there's a way I'll find it. :)

Because there isn't a single player to sit in a game for 24 hours and create the smart translator.

I swear I should be on the xim staff lol.

No you shouldn't, it would be a dark place. I didn't realize it wasn't possible to do a custom match or anything so you could be alone. That is a bummer. Thanks though.

I was using the bo2 st just to test it out for a couple of games before I went to sleep.  It felt surprisingly decent but I'll experiment more later with standards and other smarts.

Yeah I think a standard would work a lot better then any smart. Just with how hit boxes work. Too lazy to test lol

Dang, this game is fun as heck. I'm on a controller until XIM4 comes out, but the look mechanic feels really tight and it's easy to kill people.

I do feel kinda bad just coming out of the "Welcome Mat" playlist and murdering what must have been countless 7-10 year olds.

Try boost and/or a curve, this is exactly one of the reasons they were created.

Yeah the game is awesome, crazy amounts of fun. I messed around with the standards for a bit but haven't got it completely dialed in. I'm getting pretty close though.

If there ends up being a smart translator I'll give it a go with the xim4e. I just made a custom match in the horde mode and there doesn't seem to be a time limit yet. Maybe there isn't one as long as you don't "plant a garden" So maybe a smart can happen.
Title: Re: Plants vs Zombies Twitch Stream: Live

Cool. Epic did the same thing with Horde in GoW3, no timer until you purchased equipment on the map.

Anybody find it for $40 digital yet?
Title: Re: Plants vs Zombies Twitch Stream: Live
Post by: tuffrabit on 06:17 PM - 02/25/14
It's $40 digital on the actual Xbox One store.

Game purchased and downloading.  I'll be trying it out tonight live.

The ST consensus is a COD ST?

It seemed to be decent for it. I haven't messed around with the boost and curves yet. If you find something neat let me know.

I'll tweak tonight.

After a few days playing and only running into about 3 people using a mic I would say it's boring without communication.

The 40,000 tokens it takes to get a new special character takes about 3 hours and some change depending on how much you win. Each class per side has 4 extra specials. I already have the Arctic Soldier, Fire Sunflower and Mechanic Engineer.

Gardens and Graveyards is really boring vs just trying to kill others on a tight map... then again it could be due to the lack of communication.

Garden Ops is just the run of the mill FPS tower defense with bosses. Wave after wave...boring.

Overall a fun game and can't wait for the translator.

+1 on the ST need!!!


also, i am loving this game.  I spent a lot of time last night playing the non-mp co-op stuff. you still get XP!  and more if you ask me...


either way this game is going to be a good (get me away from ghosts) game.  I got the fire cactus right off the bat somehow. its beast!


I have played about 3 hours and I am almost to the 40,000 credit level, going to get hat new character tonight I hope!!!


what Smart Translator are you using there "mouse"?

Managed to play two rounds last night once the servers started working again.  Game is hilarious fun.  Used the BF4 ST, felt fine.

I downloaded it but I have no XIM for xb1 :( So I have been screwing with a controller..but I am down to play.

I can heal you with my flower power.

I'm using ghost smart translator. It's ok but we all do need one made.

Gamefly still hasn't sent this, still waiting sorry.

Post by: tuffrabit on 12:22 PM - 02/26/14
I think the BF4 smartie works better than COD ST's for this game.  BF4 was pretty dang close.

Hear the game has some balancing issues favoring the plants greatly. Is this true?

Depends how well the team plays. A good plant team has better range classes. The zombies have the soldiers paint ball gun and the engineers concrete launcher for longer range.

initially i thought the plants were overpowered, but figured out quickly its all about the players playing.  and if they have at least one of each class playing on the team.  if everyone goes cactus, then your fubared.

Post by: Mouse N Keybord on 01:13 PM - 02/26/14
Zombie classes are more forgiving when it comes to aiming imo except for the soldier but he also has a rocket launcher.

I hate a in your face zombie team and plants that run in one at a time. A ranged group of well placed plants will dominate any non coordinated zombie group.

Still playing this game a lot! It does require team work to consistently do well. I'll give the bf4 a try tuff with the xim4e.

I actually cannot wait to do this tonight.  i didnt last night due to time restraint... tonight its all out gaming for hours with a buddy.

I played for several hours yesterday and had a ton of fun. I need some people on my friends list who play this on XB1. My gamertag is: Jaximus Decimus

Anybody that is down can shoot me an invite. I'm quickly growing tired of hearing nothing in my headset but 10 year olds screaming, "I just unlocked a ZPG! WOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!"
Title: Re: Plants vs Zombies Twitch Stream: Live
Post by: NinjaX2 on 04:07 PM - 02/27/14
Yeah..I play it but with a controller and no fingers so i dont do so hot...and hit detection obviously on the wave mode or co-op is much better.

Seems in multiplayer I am missing a lot even when they stand still or it is highly delayed.

Eg I kill 3 dudes with an explosin but dont see the kills show up for 20 seconds..

However it may just be normal...not really sure.
Title: Re: Plants vs Zombies Twitch Stream: Live
Post by: Phantom Machine on 06:43 PM - 02/27/14
Hit reg and everything feels good to me. I've never seen crazy delayed kills or anything. The only thing that occasionally lags out for me is the rocket jump. Sometimes I'll push the button, nothing will happen, then I'm instantly 20 feet in the air or on top of a building.

Gamefly finally shipped it to me, I should have it next week.
