    at times I did spawn in the same area the enemy spawned in. I couldn't get them but could get me. I tested it too. nothing but blanks from my weapons.

    it's best no one knows you're there until you get out of the no kill zone.

    The enemy always spawns in front of you, not one ever looks back, they all take off runnin.. very eaay to take a corner behind or to be still til they're gone.

    Yep that's why the shotgun is best there. The best system I have seen is actually Battlefield's. The other team can't get anywhere near your spawn or it kills them.

    hmm though a bit unfair at first perhaps waiting in your original spawning ground would insure a streak of success by watching for those that come to life behind you. I might try that myself when there's time

    1 problem is other's will catch on

    For those of you that are OTR and play on the road do you use a laptop or game console? I want to get back into playing but I'm limited to a 150w plug in inverter and I don't think that's enough for a xbox or ps.

    I play on both, you're probably right about the consoles and a tv not running on a 150 watt inverter. Can't say about the laptop, I know mine won't run on a 150 watt. I'm fortunate enough to work for a company who put 1500 watt inverters in all the truck.

    Anybody who's running a laptop to play in the truck I picked up a new game off steam last week called transport fever. If you've ever played any of the old railroad tycoon games you'll love this. Unlike the railroad tycoon games though you have access to trucks, buses, ships, and airplanes to move goods and people.

    I used to run a laptop on a small inverter in my car when I worked security, and that did ok. I know you can also get the 12v vehicle chargers for the laptops. I get real bored sitting in the truck and need to find something to do.

    Its going to depend on your laptop and how big it is. Mine was made with a desktop cpu in it and the biggest video card you could stuff in a laptop at the time. Not to mention the 16gb of RAM and the 2 750gb hard drives running in raid 0. The thing is a beast and draws a lot of juice.
