Crowd-funded QuakeLive LAN possibility (No comments)
Posted by Emenike @ 12:58 CDT, 23 July 2014 - iMsg
I have an idea. What if make Quake Live LAN fully crowd-funded from twitch subscriptions? And of course it will be streamed only by one streamer. For example $10k prize pool duel LAN tournament requires 1000 subscribers with $10-15 subscriptions. I don't know how many is twitch's fee and streamer work costs. Is 1000 achievable? I saw 4000-5000 viewers at twitch only while QuakeCon 2014 group stage.

I hope problem with only one stream (to have streams in other languages) can be solved by creating several twitch accounts and given login-password for streamers. So they can only stream without ability to change anything else (payment credentials, etc). I guess there will not be any pirate restreams because Quake community average age is high enough and if will twitch provides any tools to detect them and will prevent it quickly. Of course well known streamers, organizers are required and it can be held at some LAN party place like DreamHack. Surely first LAN can be done by this and needs some risky donate to have guaranteed prize pool. Without having this guaranteed prize pool only optimistic viewers will pay for it and very optimistic players(sponsors) will spend their money for this.

Is number of subscribers is the only one problem?

Right now, the game list is pretty shitty (Minecraft tourney? For real?), but one of the creators said he's open to input. Nothing would stop any US guys from going there and hosting their own Quake tourney anyway.

Quakeworld 1on1 Aerowalk Tourney (11 comments)
Posted by dirtbox @ 07:43 CDT, 23 July 2014 - iMsg
To keep the QuakeWorld momentum going during the summer, a series of duel tournaments have been hosted the last couple of months. We have seen people battle it out on DM2 already where a winner is soon to be crowned and the DM4 campaign just started this week. Next up is a tournament on the popular fast-paced map Aerowalk which will run in parallel with the DM4 tournament. The rules are simple; it's QuakeWorld 1on1 deathmatch and the map is Aerowalk where the winner is decided in a best of three maps series. A double-elimination bracket is used to ensure that the best Aerowalker is indeed crowned king after the gunsmoke has settled.

The registration for the tournament opened up this week with the tournament starting in around four weeks from now. There will be a 32 player limit and we will hopefully see many entertaining matches as notable signups so far include some of the absolute top players in QuakeWorld today; Norway Rikoll, Sweden Locust and Sweden Bps among others.

Logitech G500 double click "bug" (3 comments)
Posted by xou @ 11:03 CDT, 22 July 2014 - iMsg
Couple weeks ago, my G500 started acting weird. When I made a single left click, it sometimes resulted in a double click. After a while it became very frequent and annoying...

I tried that solution today : http://zalbee.intricus.net/2014/02/how-i-fixe...500-mouse/

It wasn't too easy to put the spring back into the switch after a little cleaning, but that's really doable quickly with a little luck :)

I'll see how it goes.

Anyone with the same bug who managed to fix it ?

Hello friends,

I have an XL2411T and it rocks. I tried lightboost, wasn't a big fan. Went back to 'normal' mode and since I can't get to 144hz anymore (stays 120). If I force it in my nvidia driver it will just give me 'out of range'. Tried reinstalling the driver. I removed lightboost as on the blurrbusters faq
(To turn off LightBoost: 1. Disable the “3D Stereoscopic” checkbox in Control Panel. 2. Unplug the monitor’s power supply for 5 seconds, and then plug in again. (this clears the nVidia LightBoost unlock.))

Any ideas?

So Russia has proof it was Ukraine, and Ukraine has proof it was Russia.

So how about this.

PUT BOTH leaders of both countries on the spot, saying that whoever is proven to be found as lying by a committee of experts in a PUBLIC TRIAL, will have to either back up their bags and go back to Russia, or give up that part of the Ukraine to Russia.

The beauty of it is, whoever is lying will either be exposed as being so, OR will have to pull out of the bet and will face further condemnation and doubt throughout the world. And there is nothing like a babies brain splattered all over the run away to hit home.

Simple but very effective and the only person that would not think so is the person who knows they are lying.

Its a win win.

Proof must be conclusive, or its null and void. Even if one of the leaders goes back on their word, they'll face so much negative PR it won't be worth either of them doing so.

If only this was Quaek - ESPN & $11m (88 comments)

ESPN to air DOTA2 championships.

$5m, yes MILLION, 1st prize. $1.4m 2nd, $1m 3rd.

All the way down to $22.5K for 13th and 14th place.



http://www.brightsideofnews.com/2014/07/17/es...pionships/

Made me rolf after hearing 'swag' being thrown around in the QuakeCon presentation.

Straight after watching the QCon14 finals (a combination of incredible speed, accuracy, skill (aim), prediction and strategy - all at a ridiculously fast and compressed pace), I found myself on the Twitch DOTA2 channel out of curiosity.

WTF.

There is no comparison. As hyped as the casters get, not much really happens. It's like comparing a slow drumbeat to a finger melting guitar solo from Joe Bonamassa.

ID - look at this. Look what is capable in the gaming world. Look what you could be earning.

Steam could be the start of something insanely good; it's a goldmine for player base and advertising reach/power. I'm not saying it has to reach this level, but heck, even 1/5th of the way and it's a huge success.

*Could be*.

Should. Quake is a high octane battle, which is exactly what this culture loves to watch (think sport, films and TV. Christ, even magazines!). Quake and it's players deserve this kind of recognition.

*Dreams*

EDIT: This is not about Quake vs DOTA2, it's about what Quake could be.

How to add exes to win8.1 mousefix easy (5 comments)
Posted by Conditioned @ 00:48 CDT, 21 July 2014 - iMsg
So windows 8.1 has a little quirk that due to adjusting how mouse input works with very high resolution displays a lot of people have experienced problems with mouselag. .

The good news is that Microsoft released a fix for it, the bad that you have to add the game (or whatever) executables to the registry manually to adopt the mousefix for them. Apparently this doesn´t do anything to games with raw input.

This little fix makes it so you only have to right click on the exe´s to add them to the registry. Thought I´d share it since I find it pretty sweet and I haven´t seen it anywhere else. Full credit to dreamss on blurbusters forums:

download http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html and copy exes to c:\windows\
save this as mousefixcontext.reg and run it
right click on .exe and click on apply mouse fix

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Fixmouselag]
@=”Apply Mouse Lag Fix”
“NoWorkingDirectory”=””

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\Fixmouselag\command]
@=”\”C:\\Windows\\nircmd.exe\” elevate cmd /c REG ADD \”HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\AppCompatFlags\\Layers\” /v \”%1\” /d NoDTToDITMouseBatch /f && Rundll32 apphelp.dll,ShimFlushCache “


I put this on my onedrive https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=96B6875A64FE5C5A%21144. My av says it´s clean but you never know so it´s probably best to do it manually.

Is there anywhere that i can buy a shirts with a quake logo on it [like on of these ( http://imgarcade.com/1/quake-logo/ ) - first row 4th across / 4th row 2nd across ]

I found this; http://store.bethsoft.com/quake-logo-tshirt.html

Which is really nice, but it will cost me $30 / £17.56 for it and that is too much for me, $15 / £8.78 was a great price.

+ I dont want to make a shirt with a logo on that because sites i have seen which you design your own shirt, you can see the printed black area which has the design on and it does not look good at all.

If you are on Windows 8.1 and a Fatal1ty motherboard to overclock your mouse polling rate, don't install the optional updates: kb2967917 or kb2962409
If you install either one, your mouse will be stuck at 125hz. Hopefully saves someone some stress.

Amazing players (like K1llsen and avek) can't keep with the grind of QLive because the returns are so small. These talents practice so much for the chance at such a small winnings purse. Then we give 30k to these morons in the audience just for being there? I am really upset, confused, and frankly just bewildered at the entire post-duel ceremony stuff.

NO SPOILERS QuakeCon coverage (14 comments)
Posted by rayu @ 21:55 CDT, 19 July 2014 - iMsg
Due to very unfortunate events for the first time I can't watch QuakeCon live.

While it breaks my heart, I'd still love to catch up on the event without ruining it for me with spoilers. It's hard enough not to get my daily dose of ESR comment reading already.

So, is there a source where I can watch all the matches in a chronological order, without giving away who won, or who advanced to the groups, let alone won the whole thing?

I'd be really grateful for that.

If there is another thread already, sorry. Didn't look on purpose not to see some "congratz strenx for firing dkt" thread :)

I know this is ESR, but please no spoilers here guys... I'm sure some others would appreciate as well. Thanks!

Build Quality of WMO and Intellimouse (6 comments)
Posted by Syndicat3 @ 08:21 CDT, 19 July 2014 - iMsg
Hi,

I play FPSs like CS:GO and the CoD games.

I have a G400 that I recently repaired and I'm looking for a backup mouse— either the WMO or Intellimouse 3 on eBay from seller dacheng2009.

QUESTION:

What is the build quality of these mice today? Do they typically break in a year or two? The Steelseries Intellimouse 3.0 looks cool, but the $12.95/free shipping WMO looks like a steal.

I've spent months researching mice and I've come to the conclusion that to me, these great mice like the FK, AM, and EC1/EC2 from Zowie, the Deathadder, the G502, etc... all aren't worth it considering the price.

Thanks...

Why is DaHanG so awesome ? (96 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 06:54 CDT, 19 July 2014 - iMsg
This is just a random thread to say how much DaHanG is an awesome player, because there's not enough DaHanG worship in ESR imo.

- Lives in the USA where the duel scene is supposed to be stale.

- Practices against the same (but skilled) guys all the time.

- Always do good at international events for many years now, placing 3rd, 2nd here and there.

- Impressive skill overall when on form.

- Never heard of him whining or making any drama or excuses, just loses and keeps the frustration for himself.

- Always cool in interviews, seems like a relaxed and humble man, and easy to talk too.

- Has already beaten all tops on LAN, has beaten rapha, evil and Cypher in groupstage this QCON 2014.

- etc.

So, DaHanG, good luck in the final against Cypher and I hope you will keep your calm on the scene ! I like Cypher but I think you deserve a title for your career.

tl;dr = DaHanG <3

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.

the event was shut-down before the LB final between ZeRo4 and elp could be played (I think).
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.

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)
<< Comment #34 @ 06:25 CDT, 23 October 2009 >>

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.

But the hype for fat, czm or tox matches would make for fun spectacting too.

Sujoy but that won't happen.
xext toxjq, not likely but he would be a top contender if he had the time to put in
third probably Fatality or czm, the mappool suits american playstyle at the moment with t9 and t7

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.
Same love story.

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.

It seems 90 % of the progamers become pokerplayers after their gaming career.

Because they have been playing the same players and shithouse maps since the creation of the universe. However, I'll agree qw has superior fundamental gameplay and the top players would probably never switch to anything else. I just think it would be nice to see a guy of Reppies insane talents try something different.

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.

By Moldova john "Zerofor" rembo  - Reply to #213
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.
<< Comment #221 @ 12:54 CDT, 29 October 2009 >>
By Sweden Paladia  - Reply to #217
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.

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.

why no zyz in this vote poll? He was q2 superstar in tdm / duels so was he in Q3 tdm and awesome duel player in PK. He was 4th at world champion ship in PK 2005.

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.

Wasn't ION Games an online tournament? The one where elpajuo went AFK on tourney4 with a small (1 frag?) lead, and then Daler took the win at the end?

I think you may be right, though he was #1 at AmeriCup and LayeredX as well (and second at Quakecon and WCG USA 2002).

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.

The Genie says, "you have three wishes". Aladdin tells the Genie his first wish, "I wish for unlimited wishes.". Robin Williams tells Aladdin, "Well that kind of defeats the purpose of only having three wishes, but what can I do? Rules is rules.".

I always liked CZM, Toxic and Lexer myself. If I had my way, they would all come back.

Outside of the usual suspects I would like to see (not just from Q3):

Polos, Blokey, Lakerman, Aim, Q50, Slinger & Stelam (surely they're a double team super combo?), Panicore, Prozac, Appleseed, IF22 anyone? and just cos I love him, Timber.

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!
