Frequently Asked Questions
Gears of War 3 FAQ - by:13ip0lar

Grifter Reborn 09-22-2011 06:45 PM

Q: How do people already have the onyx war supporter medal?
A: Before the official release of the game there was a glitch (that was updated upon full release) that counted each match played as an "event" for those who had the game early.

When is the next event?

DO NOT MAKE YOUR OWN THREAD ABOUT THIS: Use the forum tool on the right side of your screen to "search this forum" for others having this issue. keywords; beta, beta medal, flaming, flaming weapons, thrashball cole.

Q: Why does my ribbons tab still have a mark over it?
A: Glitched exclamation mark that shows you have new ribbons, when you actually don't.

Q: Why does the song play on gridlock?
A: It plays after every round where an ashen body wasn't destroyed.

Q: What song is that on gridlock?
A: Mad World by Michael Andrews

Q: Why do I know that song?
A: Any number of reasons. It's in the campaign. There's another version with Gary Jules in the movie Donnie Darko.

Still have questions?!? Then try posting them -->HERE!<--

Thank you for this. Should hopefully reduce the amount of duplicate posts we see.

Unfortunately, it won't. I wrote a detailed FAQ for Dead Island and even though the thread is sticky'd, threads with the same topic pop out of nowhere over and over again. : /

Nice work, though. Thanks for making the effort.

Was so making an FAQ when i saw this. suppose i'll just send them to you then.

Nice! I'm posting this to the FAQ. Thanks! :)

Edit: Also, if you get anymore please add them as I'm sure it will be appreciated!

Cheers for this mate, hopefully it will reduce some clutter.

I remember someone attempted this in another sub-forum, sadly people that are stuck with instant illiteracy still posted crap, for which there was already several threads on the subject. Nice try though.

Also in the defense of the forum noobs, that search function is seriously fuxed. It works when it wants, and in my case it seems to be 50/50 if that.

fixed that for you. :)

Love this thread. Extremely helpful, yet I really hate how people disregard it and still make duplicate threads... The least they could do is use the search function.

Agreed. This one is brilliant. Maybe move it to the top, put flags and fireworks around it and make it bright red or something?

Can lead a horse to water...

Glad the thread is appreciated! I know not everyone will use it, but for those who do it's worth the effort! I'd like to think at least a small amount of clutter has been helped by this. Of course, it's currently rated at 3 stars so I guess I'm doing an "average" job on the whole. Not great, but not bad either! ;)

Yeah we did. I messaged back in there to, but don't worry. You're well ahead of me! :p

Grifter Reborn 10-03-2011 04:41 PM

Just finished the new look to the thread! *phew* I sincerely hope that everyone finds the changes to be better not only esthetically but more importantly, USEFUL! If threads need to be added or changes made, please let me know. I'm gonna take a break now! ;)

Hahaha good idea.

Can lead a horse to water... but you can't make it drink.

TransonicPower 10-06-2011 08:49 PM

I guess somebody saw my post about making a thread with links to all different guides :D This is really helpful and hopefully will stop all the pointless threads with one question in them when that answer can now be found here

Quartered Drummer 10-24-2011 08:43 PM

Since the mods won't sticky this, put it in your thread. NOW!!!

I've had this in my thread since day 1, it's in post #2: Questions about horde...

If you have a suggestion of how I should list it, I'm all ears. Just please drop the "NOW!!!" or follow it with a: /sarcasm. Thanks! ;)

My bad, I didn't see the 2nd post. Thanks for putting it in here, NOW!!!!

What about a thread just to find people to play with in general ( NOT FOR ANY ACHIEVEMENTS, JUST FOR FUN).? Where's that one:confused:

If I'm not mistaken, the two current threads for "cheevo trading" have been for that purpose as well. Your welcome to double-check with Pants, but I'm pretty sure it's been used for both purposes. ;)
