Yeah sure. That's really old. But I did some ROFL when I saw it happen. It's real, no doubt. I might try to get a SS for a POTD. Hehe, driving piggies.

I believe this really IS a trick the devs put in, as I have read about it on a few sites, and also read chat of a few that pulled it off.

I also believe it because I know for a fact the devs did put tricks in the game. There is also a trick in the Dam level where you can carry the Heavy Machine Gun or the Rocket Launcher from the Buggy or Hummer after either sneaking to the Buggy without picking up or using guns, or driving the Buggy to the ledge above the Sniper Rifle stash.

I have pulled off the Dam trick by both methods, and have videos to prove it. I was not, however, able to get the Rally Pigs trick to work. Maybe I just didn't wait long enough, or maybe I was too close to the Buggy while waiting. It's supposed to happen just by parking the Buggy in an "unsafe" spot, like the stairs leading up to the Fort.

Personally, I prefer the Dam tricks, they are not intended as humor like the Rally Pigs trick, but it DOES require skill to pull it off. It can, however, be rather humorous to tote around a Machine Gun with 500 continuous rounds or a Rocket Launcher with 30 continuous rounds, reeking havoc on unsuspecting mercs and mutants.

Some that have pulled off the Rally Pigs trick were upset that they never saw the pig drive off, but rather heard it, and saw the Buggy parked elsewhere later, so it was a bit of a let down for them. It is rare, in fact, that anyone captures the event by video, or screenshot for that matter.

Here's some videos of the Dam tricks and using the bonus from it. The second includes a humor clip of the zany kind of things that can happen when you run into Fatboys in Dam:

Hey, Omen, would you by any chance happen to have those vids as a download (.zip)? Putfile goes insanely slow for me.

Well, I posted them with the Putfile links because more often than not the Filefront links are usually complained about more for being slow, although it's usually people from overseas that say that. These are condensed versions of the originals, made in smaller viewing size and bit rate to stay within the Putfile 25MB limit.

I just tried compressing them into zips and unfortunately, they're already compressed so much it wasn't much of a difference in file size. In fact, I couldn't get the Alternate Ending & Outakes one to go ANY smaller, and the other only went from 23.4MB to 23.3MB.

Since both my email accounts only allow for up to 10MB in file size, I can't send them direct, but I can give you the Filefront links. If you're located anywhere in North America Filefront may work OK for you, but it sounds like you might be overseas somewhere. The Filefront versions are larger in file size though, due to their bigger viewing format and bit rate.

The Alt End & Outtakes clip from Filefront is quite a bit bigger, but shows two alternate endings, rather than one.

No Dam Gun Alternate Endings & Outtakes (88MB) Using the bonus!

PS: I've contemplated getting a free Rapidshare account, which is probably one of the faster file hosting services in Europe, but there are two problems with that. They are faster for Europeans, but fairly slow for North Americans. This means a lot of extra time for me to upload them, and check the download. It also means I would end up with links that do not work eventually in the posts I make, as they have a policy of deleting files unviewed for 30 days.

Every link I've seen posted by those that use Rapidshare to host their files ends up unusable. This is hard on forum mods, and frustrating for members that clicked on them too late to view them.

What country do you live in btw? I noticed your profile says Filefront Network Staff, are you in the US? Maybe you just hit Putfile at a bad time. Sometimes you can't even upload files lately because they're doing maintenance.

The pig trick, there's no 'set' time that they'll do it, you have to be far away from the truck, or out of their line of sight. You could stand to the far right near the forest exit [enter on the far left, where the mercs have the buggy] and wait for the pig to go by the truck. If he goes to the truck, he's gonna drive it! You can't wait right next to the buggy though, they're scared of the player naturally and won't do it if you're standing right there. I was standing by the rusted cannon to the left of the stairs when I saw the piggy hop in and drive away. Sometimes you only have to wait 1 min, other times 5, it's not a 'set' time like I said.

I figured it was one or the other, and something felt like maybe I was just too close and looking for him to come that casued it to fail.

That kinda of makes it hard to enjoy the trick, because of the thick jungle, there's not many places you can both park on the steps AND be off in the distance with a view of it.

Also, the pigs are not always scared of you, sometimes they come right up to you, which makes it hard to know why they don't come. Perhaps they put some of that element in their AI for this trick though, to give you the sense that they know they're being bad little piggies.:D

If you find time, can you by any chance take a couple of screenshots, one to show where you parked, and another to show where you watched from? It doesn't have to be while doing the trick, just the locations would help a lot.

I promise I'll make a video of it and post it if I get it to work the way you did, and give you full credit for the method used.;)

Omen, I suggest you www.thislinkwasremoved.com That is the fastest uploading site. And you can upload maximum 100 mb. And you can download a file in less than 4 min. At least I can.

???Are you referring to an alternative hosting site to link my videos to? If so, I have been looking for better alternatives than Putfile and Filefront at times, but mostly due to people overseas having trouble with very slow DL speeds.

I'm not really sure what that has to do with this thread though. Problem is, 100 MB isn't a very big file size allowance, and most hosting services delete unviewed files after 30 days, which leaves broken links for the mods to deal with, and nothing for members looking at the threads later on to view.

I still think overall Filefront is probably the best, at 1 Gig file limit, unlimited storage space, no deletion for unviewed files, 750x85 banner, and directory/subdirectory management. They do, however, have to undergo maintenance quite often, and are very slow at times, especially for those overseas.

I heard they had European servers once. If that's true, it'd be cool if they could start that option up again.
