19'' 160hz CRT or 24'' 144hz LED (3 comments)
Posted by A1fR @ 06:35 CDT, 25 May 2015 - iMsg
I've been using 21.5'' 60hz LED monitor and I've been thinking about getting a new one. I could get 19'' 160hz CRT for free (Samsung Syncmaster 997MB) or then buy new 24'' 144hz LED monitor, but money really isn't issue here. So which one is better or should I ask is there a major difference? Are those old monitors good for eyes? Thanks in advance.

Found abandoned bird. Named her Sparks. (90 comments)
Posted by cl0ck @ 11:23 CDT, 23 May 2015 - iMsg
So I am rehabilitating this baby fledgling that I found near my car. It appeared to be abandoned by its mother. Unfortunately, it doesn't follow my direction very well (in regards to feeding), hardly responds to anything I do and does not seem strong enough to survive my care.

I have named her Sparks.

Sparks the bird video


So yesterday I noticed this bird next to my car, which was parallel parked near my house. I didn't think anything of it. I came back two hours later it was still there and I noticed cars that were attempting to parallel park were having to dodge it and were coming pretty close to hitting it. I lightly moved it closer to the street. I went back outside a few hours later to take my dog out and saw it was still there in the exact same spot I moved it to. I decided to scoop it up and take it in my house and figure out what to do with it.

I call my vet, they said they don't deal with wildlife but referred me to some wildlife rehabilitation centers in the Chicago area to call. I called a few and they referred me to two people who specifically handle rehabilitating these birds (this type of bird is a protected bird here in Chicago, called a Common Starling). Unfortunately due to the holiday weekend these people told me that they were unable to take in the bird until Monday. They advised me to either put it in a bush and hope for the best or attempt to take care of it until then. Being as I am such a nice guy, I decided to try and care for it until one of these centers is open to take it.

After googling stuff and making a few pet-store runs I have acquired the necessary materials to attempt to care for this bird until I can deliver it to this lady on Monday.

Edit: I have decided to begin accepting donations to help get the bird to Quakecon.

Description by Spain santile:
"This movie simply showcases some runs done by a few Q3df.org players. However this time I got rid of the run time overlay, hoping to make the action more clear. You can see the runtimes and download the demos below ;)
I decided to make it a series, hopefully having more regular content on my youtube channel. You can also enjoy 5 different audio tracks if you download the original movie, just in case this one isn't of your taste (I even included a metal one :o)
Other than that, it's the same old boring formula : show runs, some recams here and there, a bit of CC ... I focused a bit more on the synchronization this time, however I am far from mastering it :D"

Life after 1.1a (36 comments)
Posted by TunaH @ 03:14 CDT, 23 May 2015 - iMsg
Dear Mouse experts of ESR,

How are you guys?
I have a quick question which I need your expertise on. I have been using the 1.1a for a decade. And currently the past year, I have been using it on 125hz (coz Windows 8).

I really want to have a mouse that is capable of 500hz but I dont know which one would be the most suitable for me. Because the shape of 1.1a gives me orgasms while I play and in my mind it's the only mouse I really like.

I have seen some Zowie mouse, but they are like a freakin cellphone manufacturer, just too many of them. Which one of those would be suitable?

Let me know your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

PS: I have a MX518, DA 2007 here. And both feel like a brick to me. Especially the DA. It's super heavy.

Hey guys,

some of my friends developed a platform for watching and tracking your statistics in CS:GO.

The community CSGO-STATS.NET is a unique platform that presents Counter-Strike players their own statistics in a special way for comparing, sharing and developing themself. Further media companies could extract some graphics and statistics about Pro-Teams like fnatic or Ninjas in Pyjamas for their editorial content. The whole content is also available for mobile devices. Otherwise the community
elaborated more graphics and statistics better prepared then other competitors.

What is your opinion? What is positive? What is negative?

Demoflex - Native Reflex Demoplayer (9 comments)
Posted by phgp_zEv @ 23:09 CDT, 20 May 2015 - iMsg
Today we are very excited to introduce the first Reflex Demo-editing tool. Demoflex is a stand-alone Windows client that makes it much easier to filter, edit, preview, and manage your Reflex Demos/Replays. We built Demoflex from the ground up with Moviemakers in mind but also wanted to make it easier for new players to watch and analyze matches.

Some Key features of Demoflex:

Inline Demoviewing
Easy Export of TGA's
Demobrowser
Easy Previewing of Demos
Predefined Moviemaking Settings
Runs on Windows Vista and higher ( best experience: windows 8 )
How to install ? - Just put the "Demoflex.exe" into your Reflex game directory, Thats it!

After the very exhausting last few days we are happy with the result and are sure you will be too. If you encounter any bugs tell us in the comments below and we will fix them asap! Now lets watch some Replays!



You can download Demoflex here - http://phgp.tv/news/introducing-demoflex/

Donation for Igamerz (Hotel) (88 comments)
Posted by strenx @ 05:27 CDT, 20 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello everyone,

I really do not like to ask this, but I will take my courage to do so. I do not think for myself, but for my team. As you might know, we are playing for Igamerz, which can pay us the travel in order to partcipate to Quakecon. Nonetheless, we've been told that it is a better option to ask for donation for the Hotel. (As far as I know it is near 900-1200 $ for the Hotel but I'm not sure exactly, as we can have some reduction.

A friend of mine asked me kindly to share a room with his friends as they needed one more to pay the hotel, so it would less to pay for the team. I ask this for my 3 team mates + manager (Clawz, silencep and Cypher + Surion (known as pussychevsky ;)). Would you be kind enough to help us, and I swear that I really don't like to go this far. I appreciate and I hope we will do good in this event.

Do not even start with Get a job! :) haha, have a nice day and thank you !

My paypal is : kevalanoe@hotmail.fr

As I told you, someone need to ask for it, I do not mind to ask for it. At least I try, I can fix my problem, but I ask this for my 3 team mates

Anyone know the addresses to the QCon CTF/TDM streams? The only ones I've found are these two:

http://www.twitch.tv/lteamgaming

http://www.twitch.tv/br1ck89

I was watching some CTF last night, it was pretty good. I liked it better than the regular ctf coverage with announcers because in the streams you can hear the teams communicating and it makes it much more interesting. I wish they could incorporate that into the qcon coverage somehow.

Thanks.

The 1v1 tourney looses its "who's the best in the world ?" property if one of the 5 (3 ?) top contestants is not playing :/

and he has a unique style. Even if its almost only online, he's one of the big names now and its always a shame when a big name doesn't attend (I have the same feeling about k1llsen)

Solution for reflex ingame item timers (43 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 02:12 CDT, 19 May 2015 - iMsg
Reflex devs finally found a way to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.

The new HUD which shows item timers is a great addition for those unfamiliar with timing and meta game aspect - at the same time it arguably ruined the competitive aspect and a large portion of so called meta game.

A future update will include a HUD callvote that enables or disables the timers for all participants on the server.

Official statement from newborn:
At some point in a future update we will be adding a "callvote lockhud" command. This will force players to use the official, unmodified HUD files only and will not include item timers (or strafe jump helpers, or grenade timers etc). Over time, this will become part of a larger system of settings that are appropriate for competitions and high level play but not for general pub games.

My logitech diededed, recommendations? (47 comments)
Posted by piss_wizard @ 16:36 CDT, 18 May 2015 - iMsg
My G400s is dying/dead and I'd like to replace it. I'm a fingertip player and I use a medium/low (37cm/360) sens. My mousepad is a QcK SK Gaming edition, but I'll want to replace that too.

I was looking at the G402 (used to the shape since i've used an mx518 + g400 prior to my g400s) but I was wondering if the sidebutton would hinder my ability to grip the thing properly (I have pretty long fingers), and I feel like the G502 would be too heavy for me.

I hate to be the guy that doesn't have any idea what he's looking for, but yeah, I am that guy. If anybody has any recommendations for me, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

heres a update patch repack

adds si_gravity and pm_jumpheight to q43a launcher, and server setup cvars

if no si_gravity is set,in the used serve config then you maps will use the gravity key in the maps worldspawn, if worldspawn key is not set then the games hardcoded default gravity

download : http://www.mediafire.com/download/2wny283ez8r...-repack.7z

includes a new comp damage set which lowers the damage on all weapons a little, and fixes the rocket jump so it wont send you to the other side of the map

extract .7z into q43a folder thats in the quake 4 folder

run q43a launcher, and load the q43a_launcher_cpma_ish.cfg server config, and launch your server

Bad Maps sucking the fun out of the game (20 comments)
Posted by wanna_fight @ 16:27 CDT, 14 May 2015 - iMsg
As you may know, I think Syncerror is a nice individual.
Everything he does seems to make the game worse. Today I'm going to rant about the maps.

First he removed 19 maps, some of which were rather popular.
Then he set it so that players (+90%) can't vote on which of the remaining maps they prefer.
And finally he stuck us with the same map rotation for what feels like 6 months!

Is he trying to drive people away? Why the hell can't we get a little variety? The map pool used to change every month, now it's the same fucking thing every fucking day! I'm beginning to forget what the other maps look like!

Let me know what any of you think of it if experienced with this model/brand. I just threw some money down on this 144hz monitor. Back to the good old crt hz feeling. Been stuck on 60hz against my liking for far too long (5 years) and I will welcome the floating aim sensation once more.

I guess if I still suck horrendously i'll have nothing left to blame.

Reflex 0.34 is out, so is this video! (163 comments)
Posted by phgp_zEv @ 03:56 CDT, 14 May 2015 - iMsg
Press release:

Reflex 0.34 has been released, featuring a new sun/sky system, a new race mode and the usual slew of bugfixes and tweaks! But more importantly it also brings the last pieces of our core tech into the game, marking our transition from pre-alpha to alpha. To celebrate, not only have we released a new development update video, we've decided to go 50% off for the next week.

The last four-and-a-bit months have been breakneck for developers and players alike.

We've released a netcode update that has been widely praised by the most competitive and demanding AFPS players on the planet.

We've launched a brand new, extremely configurable UI and HUD system. User-made custom HUDs are appearing almost daily and game configuration now much more accessible for players who haven't spent 15 years using console commands.

On the graphic side, we've made huge tweaks to the renderer that not only brought the finishing touches to our PBR rendering pipeline, but also gave solid framerates to players with hardware that would struggle to be considered "low end".

Throughout this development, we've also seen over 200 community made maps uploaded to the reflexfiles.com fan site. There have been multiple competitions each month, ranging from the low-skill focused Garbage Cup to competitions like the THC Cup and Sanetopia, featuring some of the best players in Europe and North America. Each competition is seeing more signups and a larger prize pool than the last.

With all our tech now in place, we're ready to start smashing out art and gameplay updates, squashing bugs and implementing features the community has been eagerly awaiting like matchmaking, VoIP and Steam Workshop.

Get involved!

Future of e-sport (31 comments)
Posted by nined @ 14:16 CDT, 13 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello guyz,

1st of descibed concept is not new and already got some analogs.

-------intro
Found ESR community forum best place to describe in a brief my futuristic but mb interesting idea :-) Cause on ESR are the most progressive, open-minded, active nerds, youngsters and big ballers community ever. Best gaming, non stoping, wanking bunny hoping rabbits, very smart and high educated individuals.

What is described below are related to whole competitive gaming or so called cybersport, e-sport. It is about decentralization, bitcoin and brand new vision to old things. It is just short memo but worth a big article with history, theory etc. It's not unique but kinda words not spoken.

------histrory/theory/conspiracy (!content warning! pass this part you can feel sick)

Let's take modern e-sport history from twitch tv times, casters, big tournaments, big games. 90% of players playing just for fun, ye ye players know how to jerk a mouse and keyboard decent part of theirs damn lifes with visual interaction they see on the screen, so most action take place in da brains, like interactive sweet motion fantacy, at 1st glance looks like kinda cyberpunk stuff)

Gaming is similar to real mastrubation and is an addition/substitition to this, just another form of mastrubation, kinda safe/indirect form. It is researched by smart BIG people, books written etc, if you disagree just deal with it. This forum is not a place for detail descibtion of such 'deep, dark' psy/ conspircy things. But in a brief. No talks about who is Carmac and why quake are full of some 'devil textures', why Carmac gone to research wanking helmet hardware/software, why LOL/DOTA sponsors are porntubes, why oldgames and games are not supported anymore.

So 90% of players are just for fun players - yes it's ok and kinda normal. But addiction to gaming is powered by some 'unconsciousness impulses', engine is youngster 'sexuality' (libido, hormones, complex things ) and competitive games are developed in special way, saying it without 'psy' things is like..in special way then outcome of a match, battle is very unpredictable and it is similar to real gambling then u place a bet and get excited of a win and loose, whatever hormones/psy mechanic used and you playing more and more. Look at large cut of stats of team play based games, you'll see aproximated 50% wins and 50% looses and you will never be sure of match result till last second - that how modern games are developed.

Also moden online games are kinda substitution (projection) of real life success absence/failure so that why people who play games called tards, nerds etc. But better play games for fun while you are young instead of going to streets and fighing for you slave rights, its like 'utilization' of our energy, 24h wank a mouse, fight with monsters, repeating devils texture more and more untill full unsatisfaction. Thats is conspiracy part, yes not all words spoken....on public but that is enough to catch idea

----the IDEA
Ok, there is like 2 ways of playing modern competitive games
FOR fun and like a pro with sponsorts, tournament, money prizes, casting, fun sector etc attributes. Important thing is that you can get money only from sposnors ie centralized. So called pro playing is depended on sponsors who are just figuratively speaking 'jew-mascons' companies with their OWN interests.

It's like you are a bitch and you income depends only from P.I.M.P rest of the time you just sucking rockets :-) for fun! Can you be described as pro bitch, the answer is - "no', you just kinda slave and regardless how good you are in sucking, you cannot get benefit from it. Can Cooller or someone else get more benefit from his wins more then just fun, may be yes if someone deside to make a tournament..on old game..i dont know....how to monetize Cooller skills? I dont know..just play for fun) But got some idea/teknology that can change it) if it will be accepted and realized.

If you are playing really good, you have talant, train well, got xp or just smoke damn kushy kush before online/lan matches like Cypher/Avek/Cooller/Rapha etc did. You can get benefit from you everyday play, you do moneytized you addiction/hobby, but those people are like 1% and industry use only new games, new trends, new players of certain game generation - big brother pay only big brothers games, community, tournaments. Nobody needs quake, cause its old and community are old)

---The idea itself
Imagine you are pro sportsman or pro team of damn pro uber railers) Imagine the game is damn good no matter who developed it, how old it is, gfx etc just good game for e-sport. What you will do? Wait for sponsors or start for fun...Now imagine gambling nerd - addicted of 'adrenaline' of wining or loosing his money (form of energy), He place a bet and rely ONLY ON LUCK, CHANCE. Gambling nerd cannot AFFECT on result directly or even indirectly - wheel just rotating its totally random.

Now imagine a cybershamanic sportsman and gambling approach. You play match/ tournament/ league and invest small amount of money..lets imagine teamplay of some 12v12 game like BF or ETQW or even QL (not matter of stupid mechanic)

and invest small amount of money into you match, its like a bet but you/team can affect on outcome, you are responsable for result, you playing serious, better and its 100 times more exiting (main point)..you can loose you bet or double it or take the whole tournament prize

For those of you who thinging right now (wtf, i will never invest money in this - its just no fun,its just a game. i'm not a gambler..yes you are not, you are super shamanic cyber sportsmen and you earned some small money using you skills instead of playing for fun...)

Imagine you are Agent and working hard on russian car factory doing robotic stuff whole week or just euro unemployed individual with small income or pocket money) You want to relax on Sunday, smoke some kush or drink gozhelka (vodka) add $5-10 to tournament (inside safe, secured, decentalized bitcoin based, not gov regulation, prooven gaming-gambling system) is you chance to get fun playing + earn at smallest double money or more.

Is it better instead playing for fun or rely on sponsors, is it for adults? is it serious, more then. You can play any game even those who not anymore supported for 'some reason'. Games can be more interesting, more exiting cause its very close to real things.

I dont like gambling and never bet money on something, but gambling then you are fully involved and responsable for outcome is much better, its is sport without sponsors...It is way of free people)

I would not descibe tech aspect detail of such e-sport system but in can be real competetor to real gambling and someone want to regulate/tax it. Bitcon, blockchain and modern technologies is your friend my dear. Think about income of such e-sport casinos (dont like this word) and their %'s?

One more time such private e-sport casinos already exist but not developed well or are just developing right now.

----fun sector
For you shamanic haters and lovers i can recommend best and last Carmacs quake creation ever, it's a pity not seen it being younger) It called ETQW - yes best developed and designed team-class-based fps game ever made. So i write this concept ('idea') inspired by brilliant teamplay game, combining best from TF's, ET, all versions of quake, BF's and more

Quake are just too way old and outdated, simple robotic gameplay even in tdm. It was good for all time. But i think e-sport+gambling concept desribed here can be applied to any game.


Thanks for reading, no i released my brain)

The 10th tournament we've hosted gathered 92 players forming 23 teams. You can watch VODs at Flair TV and Level Up TV. Spoiler: it was won by team pecka (pecka, lethiferous, Apollo440 and Batu1), followed by team empish and "team Harry" ;) who were awarded paintings and postcards signed by the most acclaimed Quake painter, Russia vikatje. Some action shots!

Our 11th Cup in this series will start at 10:00 CDT, 17 May 2015. Signups will start at 09:00 CDT, 17 May 2015 and will last for one hour.

We'll try the incomplete DE format once again, and to motivate you to play until the last game, there's again a prize for third place!

All players are invited to participate, but remember, each player has to play at least 10 TDM pickups prior to the tournament. Please warm up by playing with us all week!

Going about change (11 comments)
Posted by BalkanFM @ 16:58 CDT, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
Change and Quake never went good together, the biggest negative effect of this in my opinion are the thousands of maps that never got played because of peoples unwillingness to change..

it was reflexs item timers that got me thinking about this, but as i read later, it wasnt an intentional change in gameplay... however it might be, i am a bit sad about this change, because i think it gave a lot of depth to the game.(not the math part, but how you had to orient yourself in time, between items and goals with the information you gathered, deducted, guessed)...

now again, i know that the item timers are a consequence of the new ui system, but many players have found sound arguments why they are a thing to keep. I think its mostly new players that like the new system because they havent been with the game long enough to really appreciate this element. It took me many years of playing to realy realy realize how strong positioning is.(think of how good strenx already was, but still cooller opened a whole new chapter in his playbook with his "know when to be aggressive and when to not be aggressive"... its the same with timing, you cant ever just learn it like a circle jump, there are just to many factors to consider to completely analyze even a short section of a duel game. No one can ever attain this perfection, thats why its beautiful because at times, magic happens and players reach towards this perfection.

Regardless of this i can see myself enjoying games with item timers, and just as you have fast maps like aerowalk, and slow like ztn, you could have maps with item timers and maps without them.

To give more examples; people go nuts over "small" changes like lowering the lg damage from 6 to 7, why not have them both? it was apparent very early in quake 3 that some weapons worked in duel but didnt have a desirable effect in tdm.
I dont think players would have such a strong resistance if the core gamplay stayed the same and give the mapers the power to incorporate the change where it is desired.

Mechanics such as the rocket and plasma ground boost which i really hope get added to reflex, would not appeal to everyone but im sure they wouldnt mind it if it was a map element, (map and area specific) and you could play maps with or without it.
The way it is with weapons basically, the mapper decides which weapons to include in his map

In short, dont change the core, instead introduce changes as map elements.

WMO officially out dated!? (click bait) (34 comments)
Posted by StillBlaze @ 12:25 CDT, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
I have come to the realization that i think i might be ready to admit the the WMO is out dated and a hinder in performance.

How what why did i come to the conclusion?

I was messing about in my familys 27 inch IMac with a 20 euro Logitech wireless mouse, i ended up on the reaction time tester found here http://www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime/

I am "old" (26) and slow so i get like 220 ms average when im fresh and like 260ish when im drunk, stoned, tired or just not feeling great. My brother is 5 years younger and he always averaged 180-220ms under the above circumstances roughly.

We both scored a good 30-50ms faster using far inferior setup and my only and instant feeling is the WMO mouse click is a lot heavier and harder, more defined ect. And its shown in CSGO that if your not fast and hard with your 1 taps you can easily shoot 2 bullets when not trying to burst.

So i compare what i know, 144hz BenQ, i7 4770k/4790k + 970/780ti gpu sitting ready to game on both our setups. WMO @ 500hz

Verses

2009 27 inch i5 imac with 2500xwhatever resolution at 60hz while standing up and laughing at the wireless mouse.

There has to be at least 20ms or more added time on the imac? or am i looking at things illogically?

This is nothing more then food for thought, and if you are interested in proving this correct or even false i challenge all of you to get all your spares or old gaming mice out and do at least 3 or so 5 click tests and post the averages between them all. This will only work properly if done one after another ect witin 10-20 mins and not hours.

I would really be interested in what people say and find, WMO still the best weight, best size, best or equal sensor, but the scroll wheel is garbage and it seams the mouse clickers might be inferior.

If i were to have to explain it even though my DA 2013 feels like a whale the clicker feels easier and gradual as where the WMO is more hard style click.

./troll away if you must

if i missed anything sorry

If you need a GraKa with 2 DVI ports (8 comments)
Posted by crea* @ 08:01 CDT, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
..don't compromise.
I did. It went very wrong.

I own two fine Samsung 2233rz monitors and I use them as dual monitors. The 2233rz has the port standard of his time, DVI. For 120 Hz, dual link output is needed.

I got a new PC with graphics card HIS Radeon R9 280.
Ports available: 1xDVI dual, 1x HDMI (1.4a), 2x mini DisplayPort.

Now, DVI-D or DVI-I in dual link pinning will always give you 120Hz for at least 1080p and lower resolutions. Good old trusty DVI.

HDMI is basically useless. There is no way I know of to get even low resolutions at 120 Hz... can't even overrule the predefined resolution/refresh settings....60 Hz is max.

DisplayPort _should_ theoretically have been fine, but it isn't. Because to convert DVI to DisplayPort, an "active" adapter is needed, which is horribly expensive (80-100 eur). Such bullshit, why not think of this converting issue from the start.

So anyways, I made this thread to 1. warn you about HDMI and displayport, which are pure shit if you want compatibility,
and 2. ask if anyone maybe has found a solution or workaround for this?


Edit: I found a non-expensive active mDP to dual-link DVI adapter:
"Delock Adapter mini Displayport 1.2 DVI 4K Aktiv"
I emailed the manufacturer to ask if 120hz is possible, I'll update if I get an answer

Censorship in Reflex forums - be warned (180 comments)
Posted by storm @ 04:02 CDT, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
Yo,

Just letting you all know that I posted a reasonable non-abusive thread on the official Reflex forums, asking that they remove the in-game timer with good reasoning as to why I was asking.

There were quickly a whole lot of replies from other forum users agreeing with me, and I thought 'brilliant! the community is smart' I was thinking how great the developers were listening to the community and making improvements based on suggestions etc... Then......

My thread gets deleted.......

I don't have an exact copy of what I wrote, but from memory it was something like this "Please remove the in game timer. To be taken seriously as a competitive game it needs to be removed. Having this creates situations where players constantly rush items instead of thinking 'Okay my enemy has more armour, he's just fragged me, I'm not 100% sure of the RA time so I'll run the secondary items to stack back up' etc, all that strategic side of the game doesn't currently exist due to these timers.

Anyway yeah, on ESR we have free speech, this is why I love this site.

1)How do you get this crosshair that I see in so many vods on youtube: https://youtu.be/gTVvHox7B90?t=6m57s (It's like drawcrosshair 2 only with longer thinner bars!)

2)If using a custom HUD based crosshair is there a way to get it to show the crosshair when spectating?

3)Is there a way to use different HUD based crosshairs for different weapons?

4)Is there a way to get cg_crosshairHitStyle effect on a HUD based crosshair? (turn crosshair red when scoring a hit)

5)Do most players use cg_simpleItems 1 or 0? Is there any advantage to either?

6)How do you get enemy names over their heads? (People will be like "kill so and so first" and I'm like ... how do I know which enemy he is?!)

7)Do people use cg_truelightning 1.0 on LAN?

8)cg_lightningImpact 1 or 0? cg_lightningImpactCap?

Thanks for the help :) P.S. I'm going to QuakeCon this year just for fun and to watch the matches :)

Posted by ndp15 @ 04:17 CDT, 9 May 2015 - iMsg
I bought this graphics card some days ago and I want to use it (play quake and normal usage) with my NEC MultiSync FE1250+ monitor (http://www.cnet.com/products/nec-multisync-fe...-22/specs/).
The graphics card has 4 output port: 1 x HDMI (with 3D), 1 x DisplayPort 1.2, 2 x Dual-Link DVI-D.
The crt monitor obviously has only a VGA input port.
I understand that I need a digital to analogical active adapter to use them but here we come to the problems: which input port is better (if there is one..) to use? Can I use low resolution (like 800x600 or 1024X768) and change refresh rate up to 144hz with an adapter like this? (sorry for the italian link, it says that is a DP to VGA adapter and you can use it up to 1920x1200 resolution).
Do you have some cheaper solutions?

Similar mice to abyssus? (51 comments)
Posted by ddk @ 06:38 CDT, 8 May 2015 - iMsg
Hey guys!

I'm looking to replace my abyssus as it's on its last legs. I wonder if anyone has any idea for something with a similar shape that has a decent sensor etc?

Cheers! <3

Mouse hell (28 comments)
Posted by Spaceboy @ 06:23 CDT, 8 May 2015 - iMsg
Ever find yourself in a situation where for some inexplicable reason your mouse doesn't feel like it used to and shots that used to be easy now take an immense amount of effort to hit? Players you used to beat routinely are now giving you a hard time or even kicking your ass. etc

So you double check your config and sensitivity and all that stuff, trying to figure why this is happening. Nope, everything is fine. Got the same old sens, acceleration and Windows settings. But still something about the mouse feels a bit off.

So maybe you try changing mice or mouse pads. With one mouse you shaft like a pro but can't hit rockets to save your life. Another mouse gives you back your rocket aim but now your LG is all over the place.Eventually you'll find a combination that sort of works, but it's still not quite the same as it used to be.

"Why is this happening? What am I doing wrong? Maybe Windows Update screwed it up somehow. Is my USB port overclock still working? Maybe I should try reinstalling the Win7 acceleration fix. And maybe also reinstall the game. Ok, I guess I'll reinstall Windows too."

Welcome to mouse hell.

Another great addition is the implementation of a real directional sun. "r_sun 1" gives positional light which makes all maps look much more dynamic!

ASUS ROG Sica (15 comments)
Posted by h8m3 @ 14:03 CDT, 7 May 2015 - iMsg
Has anyone else tried it yet? http://www.asus.com/Gaming/ROG_Sica/
I really like the shape so far. Front is a lot like aurora(a bit less wide, slightly more \_/ shaped) while back is a mix of g100s and abyssus, fits my palm really well.
Sensor feels good, can easily do over 5m/s, etc.
The only negatives so far are rather thick cable(I've swapped mine to old razer thin one) and high button latency around 20ms(although that has never been a problem for me). The latter is most likely caused by the fact that the mouse features easy-swap switch sockets and they made a huge debouncing delay to be sure there're no problems with any microswitches. Could be fixed with a firmware update in the future, my mouse already updated once after driver installation.
Overall the mouse seems like a proper abyssus update.
Here's my comparison photogallery with other popular symmetrical mice:

The mouse has been selling in Taiwan for a couple of weeks, so it should arrive everywhere worldwide soon. For anyone eager to try one now - http://global.pchome.com.tw/english/prod/DCAN8H-A90061N15, delivery takes 4-5 days.

Elder as a competitive map. (85 comments)
Posted by fny @ 02:34 CDT, 6 May 2015 - iMsg
If I had to take one conclusion away from casting a few games on it during the small cup we had, it's that it looks super promissing but sure could use some tweaks. I'm a huge fan of the old Q1 aspects like the key, which adds another dynamic of control of being able to chase and run in a position where your opponent can't, and the buttons to open staircases that can be used both for trapping and for fooling.

Overall it needs more playtesting, I'm hoping someone, if not myself, will arrange a more planned cup for it and actually have more players play on it to see various playstyles and what could need a tweak or two.

Still, fun games, thanks to the people who played and watched the cup last night, was fun. Ash #1.

KINZU MOD - KINZUYSSUS (2 comments)
Posted by JiyhuaWei @ 20:42 CDT, 4 May 2015 - iMsg
Hi,

I made a kinzu mod, i coupled a kinzu squeletal with an Abyssus PCB (not 2014 version, not sure if Abyssus 2014 PCB would fit, if you have picture of it pls send it to me).

The original kinzu PCB is in two parts, the scrool wheel and the buttons on one PCB and the sensor on another.

So i had two ideas :

1 - i find a mouse featuring everyting on one PCB (wheel, button and sensor) fitting the entire shell of the mouse which is VERY unlikely, especialy the buttons would not meet the shell at the pressur points.

or 2 : i find a mouse featuring double PCB and i keep the sensor part and fix it to the kinzu button and wheel part. So far i made a list of mouse featuring dual PCB but i do not know for sure if they are compatible.

List of dual PCB mouse :
Corsair M45
CM Storm Recon
g400s
Kone Pure Optical
Kone Pure Optical Military?
Zowie EC eVo
Zowie EC1-A ?
Deathadder 3.5G
Deathadder 3G
Deatheradder 4G = no
Deathadder chroma ?

To my surprise the Abyssus is a mono PCB mouse and the PCB fit almost EXACTLY the dual PCB of the kinzu sensor position and scroll wheel and buttons are almost to the milimeter at the right place, so i decided to try and mod it!

It works perfectly.

(pictures coming soon!)

PS : i would like to compile a listing of mice PCB. With one side mouse with mono PCB and one side with mouse with dual PCB. I already have quite a few mice, i will put this in this thread if it's ok.

How to increase your idiocy (33 comments)
Posted by nthreem @ 13:20 CDT, 4 May 2015 - iMsg
I usually just stalk these forums, but I just had to post this.

I'm mainly a CA and insta player, but I definitely enjoy watching the duel leagues going on every month. I've dabbled in duel and other game modes, but most of my friends stick to the easier ones, so that's where I am mostly.

For the most part, I just stay quiet and keep to myself on public servers, but for some reason this player named "derb_" has a terrible grudge against me and my clan P4F.

About a month ago I'm just spec'ing quietly and waiting to join the a game and derb_ callvotes to kick me. It was a server mostly of my friends, so it really backfired on him. He starts spewing profanities and attempts to kick the server owner. That led to his own kick from the server.

Fast forward up to yesterday, and I'm in a pub server minding my own business. It became a lop-sided game after a high skilled player joined my team. I think derb_ joined the server when the score was 3-1.

The following round, I had a pretty good run with a nice LG wall-pin to rail combo, then I cleaned up with some easy jumppad LG kills. I'm not a rockstar by any means, but I do have my moments. But immediately after this round, derb_ starts to berate me, calling me a hacker, and harassing me.

I'm not here to cry like a little baby; I'm a big boy and can handle stupid behavior. I'm just curious what the community thinks about his accusation.

Here's the video starting from the round derb_ joined, up until right before he left (when the game kinda got too lop-sided).

With most of the matches completed (the goal was to go through round 3 of winner/lower brackets) we are finished with day 1 of the sanetopia tournament. There were some no shows as expected, and sadly Gellehsak did not show up for the tournament, but hopefully next time it will be a different story. Besides all the walk overs and no shows, I believe we had some great games and there are much more to come!

I would also like to thank the casters: Mtarget & Phylum For an awesome job and all the support

With that I would also like to thank PHGP for all the support as well and giving us streaming + casting help! They also gave out many prizes during the duration of the tournament on stream. Gave away 6 copies of Reflex to the people that were watching the games! Thank you PHGP

The rest of the games will be played during the week (if both players agree) but the majority of the games will be played/finished Sunday May 10th starting 4pm PST - 7pm EST

Good luck to all the players and lets have an amazing Grand Finals!!

Huge problem: 500hz USB, WMO, Win7/64 (19 comments)
Posted by TicoTico @ 16:12 CDT, 3 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello all!

I was hoping someone else had got into a corner case (?) I seem to have been stuck into, and is able to help me out on this one. If so, or otherwise know, what gives, please, help!

I just can't get the USB poll rate increase work on a WMO of mine I recently acquired. I've tried out the most of the HIDUSBF instructions on the net, and I always end up the same: Nothing seems to change, WMO just updates at 125Hz.

For starters, there's one specific thing I'd like to ask:

In the "path" of user interface actions "Device Manager/Human Interface Devices/Microsoft USB Wheel Mouse Optical/Properties/Driver/Driver File Details", there's a list of four driver files for the WMO:
C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\hidclass.sys
C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\hidparse.sys
C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\hidusb.sys
C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\hidusbf.sys (this looks promising)

but, when selecting the "hidusbf.sys" one, in the details it says:
"Digital Signer: Not digitally signed."

Is that correct, should it show up like that? Or does this mean the signing didn't work even if the "dseo13b.exe", the "Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider" reported that the file was succesfully signed?


Some possibly relevant details:

- Experimenting with this on a Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit
- Multi-boot setup with Linux (main boot loader), Win7 Home and Win7 Pro
- Asus K55VM laptop, the spec says 2 USB3.0 ports, 1 USB2.0 port
- Also have Logitech G400 installed, with Logitech Gaming Software
- WMO: Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1A
- I've also been through recovering from "dead" USB ports, caused by this poll rate overclocking operation.

I'm getting desperate!

Cheers,
TicoTico

randon weapon switches (9 comments)
Posted by barrybumcheeks @ 09:08 CDT, 2 May 2015 - iMsg
Hi,
Last month I noticed that when I selected the LG the GL would be incorrectly selected resulting in my death. I figured it was a problem with my mouse as both weapons were bound to the mousewheel. MWHEELFOWARD for LG MWHEELBACKWARD for GL. The mouse was a Razer Deathadder 3.5G. I decided to buy a new mouse as Id had that one for 3 years. I bought the new Razer Deathadder Chroma.

I could not successfully install this mouse as during the installation it would hang at 60% or some other random number during the Razer update. After looking around the web I was informed that I should install the latest edition of Microsoft.NET framework if I had problems installing the mouse. I did this. I still could not install it. The software is called Synapse and is a universal driver for ALL Razer products. The is no discrete driver for my mouse!

I contacted Razer Tech support and basically they more or less said I should reinstall windows to install their mouse... Well at this point I decided to just use the mouse as an ordinary plug and play mouse and let Quakelive handle the sensitivity and stuff. This works well but I still have the problem with weapon switches! Its not just the mouse wheel either it happens with all weapons from time to time. Any ideas what may be causing this? Is it because I have not installed Razers Spyware...sorry mouse driver or is it something to do with Qlive itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

BENQ Monitor - displayport needed? (7 comments)
Posted by t0rte @ 05:35 CDT, 2 May 2015 - iMsg
Hi folks,

I wanna get rid of my 60hz NEC, which I never thought could be beaten by a 144hz. Oh boy was I wrong.

I was choosing either the benq XL2430T or the XL2411Z.

But here is the point. I'm playing on a macbook pro which only has a thunderbold connection.

So which one will support my notebook with 144hz? HDMI doesnt work as far as I know. But can I connect this Mini-Displayport with DVI on the monitor to receive 144hz? (pic attached)

The XL2411Z doesn't have a displayport connection - the 2430T does have it.

In your opinion which of the both monitors are better for playing with the notebook? displayport > DVI?

Thanks

Some of the other players are also playing QL at the moment, such as cha0ticz I believe, however, it is nowhere near the competitive scene and as such a comeback could be in order. If Makaveli has made a comeback to the competitive scene and I missed it then he should be removed though :)

Lost to cooller in the WB Semi final 2-1 (Won pro-q3dm6 if I recall correctly). Cooller then beat ZeRo4 in the WB Final 2-1 but the event was shut-down before the LB final between ZeRo4 and elp could be played (I think).

I think he was at QLAN2 as well.

They started playing T4 and when the score was 8-8 between them as network died for good. The organizers didn't care anymore at that point but the players wanted to proceed, regardless of the cash (which was never payed out in the end). So they connected Zero4s computer directly to elpajuo, however, the organizers then proceeded to shut down all power as well, so there wasn't much for them to do.

Hence all three, cooller, z4 and elpajuo are considered tied as #1 for that event.

That's not how I remember it, I'm quite sure they all considered themselves as tied #1 and decided to split all money and hardware.

Why would z4 be ahead of elpajuo when they only played one map which ended 8-8?

The final was to be between cooller and the winner of z4/elp (which was never finished). So how was z4 ranked ahead of elp? Regardless, you are mistaken, the official (and inofficial) results were as follows:

Duel Results:
1 - tied. Anton 'cooller' Singov (Moscow, Russia)
1 - tied. Alejandro 've-elpajuo' Gonzales (Venezuela)
1 - tied. John 'ZeRo4' Hill (San Diego, California)
4. Sean 'Daler' Price (Austin, Texas)
5 - tied. Paul 'czm' Nelson (Massachussetts)
5 - tied. Jared 'cha0tics' Cugno (Boston, Massachussets)

Because z4 was in the winner bracket final and elp was in the semi.

I recall them agreeing to share the money (whether it got paid or not) split 1. qlr 2. z4 3. elp.

But anyway, it doesn't really matter and there's next to no accurate coverage of cXg anywhere and the ESR search function is beyond hopeless.

Whenever I watched him move around, especially on DM6, he would do some things that seemed completely crazy or doomed to failure. They always seemed to pay off, though.

One time he did the standard bridge to rail and it seemed obvious he was going to miss. He managed to air-control himself over farther than seemed possible like it was nothing. Also he would regularly dive down onto players where it would seem they would shaft him to death before he hit ground but it never seemed to cause him any trouble.

I voted for PELE cus I remember watching his old demos and being in awe about his interesting style. Most people probably don't remember him. He played a lot like unkind, just years before unkind was in the scene. Really smart and killer rox.

I don't think there is enough $ out there to motivate most of these people back. When you get older and have more responsibilities, it is impossible to put in the time required to be a top tier quake player. You have to choose to either dedicate your time to a game that nobody follows or do something real with your life.

I would not call a year or two of inactivity, retirement. Even if it is technically retirement, as long as we've seen them not too much time ago, it's not enough to call it in a joy, the great return of the dark knight.
To be more specific, my daughter went down from our bed in the morning, and in the evening she was climbing it again, fully enthusiastic, I would not call what she was doing today, a truly retirement.

now that's odd. i suggest to watch some of the old demos which clearly show that sl1nger was one of (if not THE) the key players in unmatched's (or SK's) success. i always felt that neok was the "weakest" individual player in that team. all in all those guys were awesome together and seeing them again would be a pleasure. especially from a german perspective since we pretty much only have k1llsen nowadays.

hmm, and it seems SK was mostly kane, stelam, slinger & para anyways, so I'd pick that team then.
I always thought slinger had often the worst NET/the most deaths. Gonna check some demos for sure! The good ol' days damned, I want them back ='(

Kane was their "star" player, every time I've faced them he was always way ahead of the others. Even the maps they lost he was usually ahead of most of our players :)

I don't really use that account (that was my 1st and only game) as I like to play in peace/quiet and have a good time. That's what happens when you get old... you like quiet, haha! Especially sometimes when I come home in the evening after a few drinks...

I could always play Counter-strike when I had some liquor, but quake, oh boy... all over the place with some alcohol, haha.

I need to get rid of this monitor though... 25 ms response time and only 72 Hz LCD.... hehe -- I don't know how much it is gimping me, but from what I've been told, it is pretty bad.

I am trying to get Unholy, immortal, and some of my other friends to start playing again though.

Because they have been playing the same players and shithouse maps since the creation of the universe.

I would go as far as saying that players like dag aren't as talented as some of the top players in QL.

When QW was the game, when it had players like DOOMer, Sniket, oKKun, Lakerman, Kane and so on, dag played at that time as well (I don't know if reppie or def played at that time but if they did they were so poor they weren't even known in the slightest then). However, dag, or dagurra as he was known as then, didn't stand a chance against those players, he was even at a lower level of play than me.

When all good players leave from a dead community, some lesser player is bound to take the #1 spot.

That goes for most of those current QW "stars", such as pietro, locktar, riker, xalibur, mrlane and so on. I do not even think they would disagree with me.

Dude, less talented? QW requires a different skillset altogether. Different strats, movement, weapons, it's hard to compare, even. Also, how can you know if the current "stars" of QW wouldn't catch up to the old masters even, if they did stay in the game?

I'd say, if they'd put in time and effort, some of them could become top contenders in QL.
<< Comment #217 @ 11:19 CDT, 29 October 2009 >>
By QW_ Zalon  - Reply to #213
I'm sorry, but that just doesn't make any sense. As much as I respect the oldschool players (They were the top when I started playing), they simply didn't play the same game as the game thats played today. Saying that Dag wasn't as good, because he peaked at a later stage in the games history - Is like saying that LakermaN was only good, because Thresh wasn't around anymore. But even back then the game had changed alot, from when Thresh was king to when LakermaN won TGI. LakermaN was part of the era where aim, speed, and the ability to do tricks became a major factor in the game, whereas the players from the previous era had relied much more on just tactics.

QuakeWorld have had numerous eras, and different kings for each era. Some have stayed on top throughout most of the game's lifespan, players like ParadokS, reppie, dag and griffin. And I'm sure players like that have/had the talent to be good in any game. Just like LakermaN showed, some people can just pick up a game and instantly be good.

Regarding the players you list as current "stars", only LocKtar and riker is around.

But I would agree, that most top qw players probably wouldn't do as good in QL, but thats more of an age/lack of time thing than it is talent. Also they would be lightyears behind the Quake3 players. If Nabbe had not been moved from the "Participating players" to the "Pending Players" list, for the QL tourney at DreamHack winter, we could have seen what a top qw player could do in QL - with limited practice.

There is nothing suggesting that Thresh was better than Lakerman, DOOMer or Sniket.

Did you watch 9 vs DR? I was there and watched it live and talked to the players. The first time EU and NA actually faced each other in QW/RQ, DR didn't do too well there (they even lost in their games vs IoP, another much less known medium-skilled Swedish team). Of course, while they were here Thresh also played 1v1s, losing games vs Xenon, DOOMer etc.

It's not like these current QW stars werent active at that point. Riker, mrlame, dagurra and so on played quite a bit yet wasn't even considered mediocre players in comparison to the likes of DOOMer or Lakerman.

I even played in the same team as Riker and mrlame, so I do know them as players more than most yet my opinion still holds true, they, just like me, werent as talented as players like Lakerman. It's simply easier to be amongst the best when the community size is 100 compared to 1 000 000, especially if you have a 10 year game advantage on all the new players.

You are ignoring the fact that most of the early star players in Quake were established Doom players. Doomer, Ettu, Lakerman, Thresh etc all played Doom multiplayer and came into Quake already holding a lot of FPS experience. It was no surprise they dominated early on. Just like in Q3 where all the early tournaments were won by veteran Q1 and Q2 players.

thresh was already deep into playin q2 at the time and had stopped playing q1, not to mention he was an NQ player not a qw player.

No offence dude, but you have no idea what you are talking about. Dag not being top notch when laker was playing doesn't prove anything. Different players have different motivations at different times. Pietro has been out of the scene for a looooong time. The players who have been at the top of the qw scene in recent years are very very skilled and would destroy laker at his previous form. There is no need to make comments when you clearly don't know anything about the subject.

I disagree.

I think if fatal1ty does decide to come back officially he will make sure that he can hold his own among the top players in practice games before doing it.
And I think we can all agree that he is not the type of players who is worse in tournaments than in his practise games.

He said on an interview @ gamescon that he likes to play a lot of ffa to prepair his aim for a tournament, but he might be playing just for fun, I don't know... And you are right, Fatal1ty isn't stupid that's why he reached his status....

Duel wise I don't think he has placed top3 in any tournament.

Though there are lots of players that you could argue would have a place in such a poll, Kane is the one that comes closest to mine. However, no matter where you draw the line, the will be cases close to the line that can be argued.

You can also vote on the "Someone else" option for such players though.

Lets see, you claim half of the players didn't place top3 in a duel tournament. I'll just mention one tournament for those I remember. To be fair, I'll only mention lan tournaments.

czm: 24% (79)
#1 QIL4

Fatal1ty: 18% (60)
#1 XSReality Invitational

toxjq: 17% (56)
#1 Dreamhack winter 2005

uNkind: 12% (41)
#1 WCG 2002

LeXeR: 4.8% (16)
#1 QuakeCon 2002

Thresh: 3.6% (12)
#1 Red Annihilation

LakermaN: 3.3% (11)
#1 Lan Arena 4

Stelam: 3.3% (11)
#1 Lan Arena 5

ZeRo4: 1.8% (6)
#1 QuakeCon 2001

Polosatiy: 1.8% (6)
#1 AMD PG Challenge 2003

PELE: 1.8% (6)
#1 RazerCPL Qualifier

Blue: 1.5% (5)
#1 CPL Asia

socrates: 1.5% (5)
#1 WCG USA 2002

DOOMer: 1.5% (5)
#1 Swedish Quake Championships

elpajuo: 1.2% (4)
#1 Cyber X-Games

Makaveli: 0.9% (3)
#2 XSReality Invitational

Sujoy: 0.9% (3)
#3 Ground Zero

cha0ticz: 0.6% (2)
Can't remember any

Blokey: 0.3% (1)
#1 XSReality AMD Cup (this was a duel tournament but not alone though).

Daler: 0.3% (1)
#1 ION Games
As you can see, your claim that "half those players never placed top3 in a duel tournament", was entirely inaccurate. Almost all of them have won at least one LAN tournament.

I voted stelam because i remember him firstly as being a great TDM player. Same for toxjq. And same for prozac. Same for makaveli because he is my first demo watched, a tdm demo on DM6 before the pro version, he was camping at RA and looking up.

And so on, i would like to see all those players come back for some great TDM with a lot of teams fighting to be n°1.

Fatal1ty ofc.

But I highly doubt that he would perform a comeback in a broken game and a watered down version of one of his favourite games, which lacks the ability to spawn LAN servers. By now he already must have realised that there's no future for a game as incomplete and undeveloped like QL.

And what else is there for people wanting fast gameplay and compete in 1on1 tourneys? Right, nothink!
