Did anyone else notice that half life designers made a mistake on the packaging?

The symbol they use on the packaging and title is lander which represents 'decay constant' not half-life!

nope but thats funny.

Fordy,

you are an old codger.:D

Lander? You mean lambda?

>>Fordy, you are an old codger.

Well I'm only 25.......

Games just dont seem to be able to hold my attention for too long...... I used to duck out of school at about 13 and spend days down the local chip shop playing Double Dragon (Yeah it was old then aswell) and Aliens with my other miscreant friends. I dont know it doesnt have the same appeal as it had then....

>>lander, you mean lambda?

No, i mean lander in nuclear physics the lander symbol (the upside down Y) represents the nuclear decay constant, the symbol for half life is 't1/2'

i can see where you get the name lambda though from, its the research place in the game.

I find it hard to belive that with all the money and time invested that one of the dev team would realise they had used lander instead of half life - there is a very big difference!!

lamba (the upside down y) is a letter in the greek alphabet. That's why he was thinking lambda. :)

no, the letter and the symbol is lander, the game is lambda.
:-!

I think it is lambda. My physics book seems to agree too. ;)

Flarelocke

The symbol for half-life is called Lambda, is a letter of the greek alphabet, and, among other things, stands for wavelength.(remember speed of light = lambda times frequency?) c=yf(only y is upside down)

Zach L.
09-10-2001, 07:37 PM
That would also be the speed of other waves besides light. :)

So, who's the other person who voted for Tribes..?

iain
09-10-2001, 07:59 PM
according to my physics A-Level books and my friend studying for a physics doctorate its lander...
anyway the spelling is unimportant - the point is they made such a huge mistake!

Okay, I found a site with a table of Greek letters (including Lambda):

I was the oterh Tribes person, static :)

I agree with Flarelocke for the lambda thing - I've never heard lander before...

Basilik... don't waste your money. Blue Shift blows. I beat it in like 3 hours... and that was on medium. I was really quite disappointed. I'll stick to opposing force... they need a one player for it tho.

And to those who have spoken against Mech Warrior... and because of this wonderful language filter... I'll resort to t133...

allow me to do you all a favor... I wrote a javascript converter to go from English to t133... here's the link:

although... give me a few minutes... I don't actually have it up there at the moment...

How bout one that translates the other way.......

I haven't played Starcraft in awhile, and have probably played 10 hours of UT this month. Still, Starcraft is the best game ever made (Street Fighter 2 (first one) and Final Fantasy 3 come close though).

Govtcheez

Street Fighter 2 was awesome! I remember playing that all the time on SNES with my friend

ober
09-11-2001, 12:18 PM
I actually had one that nearly translated the other way... I never got around to finishing it tho... doing it in reverse is kinda tricky cuz you have to read strings instead of simple characters and go back and forth comparing like a madman... I gave up and left it at that much.

diablo 2 anyone?

Aran

diablo 2 is an ok game.. now it's better than it used to be because all those PKrazy koreans are gone to ASIA2... anyway, i'm going to go out and buy the expansion so i can make some more money...

one point and one question

the Point:
UT may actually be a bad idea since a lot of you use 56k this may give the 56k or the high speed users an advantage because the UT net code is crap so it could go either way, and either way it would not be a fair match.

the Question:

how many of you play UT online i see a lot of names that look like people ive played... so who does and whats the name you play as.

Im going to buy UT and Ill be kicking all of your asses, When I get it and get a name Ill be sure to let all you know it was me that kicked you around...:D seriously. So what game have we decided upon????

Not so true.

I have a friend that used to have 56k and would kick the crap out of me because he would be able to predict (guess) where you would be going and win! This was on JK though. That is the game that I like, but a bit out dated I supose......

Anyways I did not vote, because I have not played any other games.
