Facts to the base discussion (4 comments)
Posted by crea* @ 08:15 CDT, 23 July 2016 - iMsg
I feel the need to collect FACTS on the whole base VAC ban issue.

I'm curious to know what is fact and proven, what is speculation and what is purely made up.

So first, there is this topic
here

It links base's banned account
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198111038974/

From there I followed the "information" link on VAC. It states
What is VAC?
If a user connects to a VAC-Secured server from a computer with identifiable cheats installed, the VAC system will ban the user from playing that game on VAC-Secured servers in the future.
So I skipped through the list of valve anti-cheat enabled games. Quake Live is not on that list. Which can only mean two things: 1. the ban was NOT related to Quake Live, or 2. there is still another cheat detection for quake live running, which will identify as VAC, but not use VAC directly (or related to that, the ban was manual, but flagged as VAC afterwards).

Does anyone have detail knowledge on VAC, Quake Live anti cheat and can enlighten us?

Afterwards I read through the comments, where it was stated base said his account could have been ("was") hacked. Other comments said that would not be possible of today, to which again others answered, there are literally thousands of account overtakes a year and so it IS very possible.

So, FACTS:
-VAC ban
-At least one of base's Steam account games was tempered with in some malicious way (by whomever)

Specualation:
-Ban for Quake Live cheat
-Steam accounts cannot be hacked


What can you add to the list of facts?

(I will update the initial post with any new information)

Quake Map Jam 7 (3 comments)
Posted by skint @ 08:14 CDT, 23 July 2016 - iMsg
Quake 1 mapper 'Ionous' has announced the start of the 7th Quake map jam over at Func_Msgboard. The jams run for around 2 weeks and must meet specific guidelines such as a particular texture set or a theme. Previous jams have created some very nice map packs which can all be found here.

The theme this time around is 'Back to Base' so IDbase style maps (id's industrial style) with plenty of water and pipes. The quake mod Quoth is also to be included and the deadline for finished maps is the 11th August 2016.

You can also find progress from various mappers over at the Func_Msgboard forums as well as some of the mappers streaming their work, usually Ionous and Daz. There's also information on tools needed and some reference images on the announcement post.

Book thread - 2016 edition (52 comments)
Posted by quake is potat @ 19:42 CDT, 22 July 2016 - iMsg
You know those square flappy things made out of trees. Well I've been reading a lot of them over the last 12+ months. Mostly sci-fi, but also some 20th century classics, and the odd autobiography / non-fiction work.

I used to only read while travelling or visiting my parents' house but for some time now I've got into the routine of reading before bed, during work breaks, and also reading outside if it's sunny, which is great.

Some people will pick up books at random and see how it goes, but I always try to aim for books which I know I'm going to enjoy, either because I'm familiar with the author, or because the book itself is just one of those which you keep on seeing mentioned here and there. Also, there are few books I acquired because the book earned some prestigious awards, or in some cases simply because the combination of the title and cover art convinced me that it would be a good read. When possible, I try to avoid even reading the blurb on the back. The less I know about the contents, the better.

Out of the lot, there have only been a couple of books which I had high hopes for but which ultimately disappointed me terribly, the first one being Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash", which I picked up because I wanted to check Neal Stephenson out and because there is an ESR user who adopted "Snow Crash" for his/her nick.

I forced myself to finish it, and then just put in on the table and frowned at it for a minute. Then I noticed the front cover's promotional critic quote... "Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the twenty-first century". Yeah, that's an accurate description all right :/ Still, I have Anathem and Cryptonomicon on my shelf, and having checked the first few pages of both it seems that Neal Stephenson is actually really good, and I'm definitely looking forward to reading both of them.

The other disappointment was Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea" which I found to be rather indigestible... but still worth reading once, and thankfully not very long.

As for the rest, they were all either great reads, or fantastic reads. Out of these great books, there have been a handful which, shortly after reading them, gave me the urge to start this year's ESR book thread, and with all the nonsense going on I finally thought it would make a bit of a refreshing change. Innit.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the following:

"Ilium" / "Olympos" by Dan Simmons - Only a god-tier sci-fi writer like Simmons, who is perhaps better known for his Hyperion trilogy, could pull something like this off. All 1461 pages of it.

"Matter", "Use of Weapons", "Surface Detail" and "Inversions" by Iain M. Banks - Banks is possibly my favourite sci-fi author, his universes feel so enormous and original, and his story-telling is so detailed. I've devoured all his sci-fi novels in a semi-random order, casually leaving "Inversions" for last. Not only did I leave it for last (you must), but I also dedicated an entire weekend to immersing myself in it completely and reading it from front to back in 2 days... what a fucking experience that was.

I love all his books, but "Use of Weapons", "Surface Detail" and especially "Matter" are worth mentioning in this journal as they impacted me marginally more than his other works, and I'd recommend checking out "Matter" as a starting point if you're new to Banks (or you can start with "Consider Phlebas" and read them chronologically, which is probably better in the long run amirite).

"Ringworld" by Larry Niven - Really good sci-fi, wish it was 5 times longer.

"The Gods Themselves" by Isaac Asimov - I've never read anything quite like this.

"Martian Time-Slip" by Philip K. Dick - Powerful drama in a sci-fi world.

"Ancillary Justice" by Ann Leckie - Fresh sci-fi. Some critic said she's the new Banks. Well, I wouldn't say that just yet, but this is a damn fine story for a debut novel and the sequel "Ancillary Sword" is the next book I intend to read.

"Lord of the Flies" by William Golding - One of the classics, brutal, must be absorbed.

"Catch-22" by Joseph Heller - Yes, that famous one all the pseudo-intellectuals ramble on about... well I can assure you it lives up to, and surpasses, all the hype. Hands down one of the most entertaining books I ever read.

Short stories by H.P. Lovecraft - I'd known about Lovecraft since I can first remember, as he is a household name which everyone is familiar with, and who's influence has reached every corner of modern fiction (music, games, films, books, you name it), but only recently did I actually start reading his works after deciding to buy a very nice three-volume collection of his shorty stories published by Wordsworth.

Holy shit... the guy's sheer dominance of the English language, how he conveys his characters' feelings and surroundings... it's fucking amazing. I always had an aversion to short stories in general, considering that they just didn't feel conclusive or immersive enough... but I've come to realize short stories are perfect for taking a lunch-break from work. Especially Lovecraft.

I guess I'll stop now.

tl;dr - u guise read anything decent this year?

h4x0r Q3 3.11 (2 comments)
Posted by DEZ_ @ 18:59 CDT, 22 July 2016 - iMsg
hello world

   I've made a fork from Cyrax's quake3e engine based on quake3e v20160721.
It includes a copule of bugfixes by qrealka, CPMA color codes (thanks qrealka and Cyrax).
In plans: make a version with cnq3 1.46 mouse input.
Also, unlike on terrifire's fork TQ3 there is working curl(fast in-game maps downloading).



 Some crucial changes:

-renamed com_maxfps to com_haxfps - allows you to play on desirable fps values

-default startup game is CPMA

-disabled config autowriting to prevent config desecration

-added some resolution modes (r_mode), type /modelist for view

-changed some default values:
cl_maxpackets 125
cl_aviFrameRate 60
cl_conColor 84 84 84 224
snaps ""
headmodel ""
s_mixahead 0.14
com_introplayed 1
r_mode -2


and some of other render variables tweaked for maximum gfx quality


 Known issues:
-playback binds doesnt work while demo playing
-dynamic light doesnt work in CPMA (most likely will be fixed as soon as qrealka will have free time)
-stuttering on some haxfps values on listen server(ioq3's bug, will be fixed)


 P.S.: I'll upload linux binaries ASAP.

base situation (10 comments, locked)
Posted by Therealcmss @ 15:09 CDT, 22 July 2016 - iMsg
People qq because a 'pro' good player good VAC banned. But obviously this is wrong right?

You cry and cry for anti cheat and then when a anti cheat system takes place and you sas more.

Asyyy
I remember the time when everyone here shitted on id for not offering an anticheat solution for QL. Now there is one but it hits someone you like and you go wah wah again. Seriously

And for those retards saying innocent until proven guilty are deluded. Thats what the vac is for and wtf are 125fps admins doing. Ban the guy from everything UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT. Lets see a message you sent to valve questioning the vacban base?

Why did base start making all those videos? To fool you guys to believe he is a good guy. All your smartass' who been around for a long time are brainwashed and cant see paat the basics.

One example of one of the fools: t0rte:
innocent until proven guilty

For my view on it, just stick with the anti cheats decision and wait until he is proven INNOCENT. Its only logical regardles and his achievements. I.e. kqly

Would you allow a not so skilled player to play in the 125fps cups if they recieved a ban...?

Im not saying he has cheated because i dont watch this game anymore, but with a vac you have to be suspicious.

Tl;dr: Guilty until proven innocent.

QL to CPM / RFLX movements (16 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 17:11 CDT, 21 July 2016 - iMsg
Hello.

I've been playing one or two matches today to see how the game felt now and I must say I was very pleased to see that it was far better than what I experienced previously.

So, I might keep playing more and more, so I'd like to have some advise about the movements. I played the training maps and was pretty successful at the different things, but I have troubles with straight line strafe jumps.

The thing is, I have the habit of keeping the forward key and I often fail completely at air control or violent turns because I'm out of practice so that's a question of time I guess, but when I go straight forward, it seems I slow down. In QL, I have pretty okay strafe, I accelerate a lot, but in Reflex, I do the same but it doesn't work at all.

What is the main habit to lose when switching from QL movements to Reflex one, especially in "normal" strafe move ?


P.S : Also, the game is better than before for me, but I might add that one of its biggest weakness in my opinion, aside the lack of zoom which is less important, is the sound. The sounds are weird, kind of out of place and feeble in my opinion. I hope the dev team will find some better one later when they have the time and opportunity.

PS 2 : No way to force enemy model color ? Everyone was different in the FFA while I thought I checked green for enemies (might only work for teams...)

http://esreality.com/post/2766459/refugee-crisis-fail/

I don't really feel the reason (bandwidth) given was suitable, on top of which its one which can be easily resolved and I feel it sets a bad precedent.

Despite the post count, one can only assume the images and gifs on it are the main culprits (assuming the reason was bandwidth and not political)

So, I have identified there are 31 images on the thread which in total are around 5.32mb per page load (atm) which I have made easy to resolve and would take a few mins work, which is surely not beyond our admins for a thread with over 1300 replies, and less than a year old?

The below would take a few mins to implement.



As you can see only 11 of those images are over 100kb

So, I would kindly ask ( I sent him PM) pacman.pl to delete his gif image which is 1211kb as its not important to the thread and is the biggest hog.

ezQuake 3.0.1 released (3 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 11:43 CDT, 19 July 2016 - iMsg
As the $25,000 QuakeCon 2on2 TDM tournament in Dallas, Texas is approaching (4-7th August), the ezQuake development team has been hard at work getting the QuakeWorld client ready for the action. Just a few weeks ago we saw the release of ezQuake 3.0 which brought a plethora of changes, with some being major overhauls of important parts of the client. Other changes were made to accommodate requests from the QuakeCon tournament crew with regards to rules and regulations, ensuring a fair tournament while still taking into consideration how the game has evolved over the years.

The ezQuake 3.0.1 version features no revolutionary changes but rather, as the version number suggests, aims to smash any remaining bugs and potential stability issues. To install the new version, simply download and place the executable in your Quake folder.

On a related note it should be mentioned that the nQuake installer still features a ezQuake 2.x version but will also be updated in time for Quakecon as it will be used on the tournament PC's.

A bit explanation from 125FPS (292 comments)
Posted by DieZel @ 08:36 CDT, 19 July 2016 - iMsg
As a representative of 125FPS team I have to inform you about the following.

Introduction.
All we know 'base' for a long time. He played tons of tourneys. Hunderds of people watched his games as spectators or various streams. Tens of streamers had commented his games. Hundreds of another high skilled, low skilled or whoever quakers played against him. For that years no one even reported him as cheater.
He also made few movies, participating our tiny community as well as it could even be.

Problem state.
We know that Valve Anti-cheat is a serious thing. Also we know that triggering of VAC-ban means Valve's software found on player's PC some kind of malware: viruses, modified dynamic link libraries (ddls), known cheats or whatever software that got recognized as possible unfair.
We are zero-tolerated to cheaters. Cheaters must be banned from all 125fps events for a lifetime permanently. But it is not similar to the Steam's policy.

What happened?
We've got information about base's VAC-ban in early sunday morning. Just right after base connected to me by skype describing he cannot log in to the steam with his usual account, and he knew he has VAC-ban for an unknow reason. He well understood that he could be permanenty banned from 125fps. Accroding to that he asked me only one question "Am I able to play Sundaycup today?".

Early reaction.
First of all I've decided to try find out the possible reasons of VAC-ban and loosing access to the account. I've asked base for a few typical security questions, let him check his PC for malware presence by free anti-virus software. After all I said: "Try to contact Steam's technical support to restore access to the account". Immediately I've contacted Nico to make a decision about Sunday Cup.

Why he got into the Cup?
Firstly, no one from us belived that he could cheat. A few players were ready to share their Steam accounts to base just to let him be able to play QuakeLive. Nico, as a head of 125FPS said: "I'm sure he is clear, let him play". All other 125fps team agreed with that under conditions:
1. VAC-ban could not came from wherever. There is a reason. We must find it out.
2. Base should register new account and buy a new copy of QuakeLive.
3. Using third-party accounts is forbidden by Steam rules and if base's PC still contain dangerous malware that accounts might be affected to VAC too.
4. Anyway we should try to find a motive to use cheats by base.
5. Make a deep analyze to his statistics on QLStats looking for unsual perfomace.
Until investigation proccess is taking place base is able to participate 125fps events.
From that we recommend to base get a new steam account, buy quake, try to play against someone from 125fps (it was me).

Investigation process.
Base have never before been suspected as cheater. Base won enough tough games under being spectated by a huge number of players and got his skill proven many times. Quakelive is now almost subcultural game, you cannot earn a lot of money that it could worth to use cheats. He has a name, all the community know him. We conclude that there is no motivation for base to use cheats.
For days before, all the games he played have no unsual perfomance by qlstats. He has no unsual "match-by-match wins in a row" whoever he played against.

Gathering all the facts below:
- he has good reputation
- he has proven skill
- he has no motivation to use cheats
- his statistics showed no unusual perfomace
We made a decision that it is impossible that base used cheats in quakelive.
VAC-ban triggered for some other reason, so we've contacted Steam support as 125FPS team and asked for explanation why that certain account got VAC-ban. We don't know if Steam support is going to answer or not.

Here is no any other reasons in our decision.

Also we made a decision that if someone of proven-skill players like k1llsen, Spart1e, etc will get VAC-ban we do not ban them from 125fps events permanently until their guilty get 100% proven.

I am free to contact and answer any questions you have on IRC channel #125fps.

PS: we are strictly recommend to all steam users to improve their steam accounts security, like enabling Steam Guard.

Sincerely yours,
DieZel
Team 125FPS. 125FPS

An Australian Promode film by AustraliaJS3.

We had an idea back in 2013 to make a frag movie after a few years of heavy local activity, but never actually got around to it. I decided to finally let the idea come to life after a few hours of nostalgic reminiscing. 3 days later, and we have Useless Idlers. Because 20 year old me and 16-18 year old me have different ideas of "good frags," many demos didn't make the final cut in here in 2016, and I also lost a whole heap of demos in between migrating computers while i was an active player.

The name was derived from the 20+ or so people that idled in #promode.au, but frustratingly never actually !add'd to any games. All in all the film is more of a memoir than anything, to the countless hours we sunk into what we believe to be the finest FPS ever created.

Enjoy the first and last proper CPMA frag movie Australia has to offer :)

http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198111038974/

updates:
base excuse to 125fps admins: "lol i got hacked"
125fps admins response: "lol those pranksters, get another account"
base new accounts:
http://qlstats.net:8080/player/126733#duel
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198319398558/

analysis:
we know for sure base account was used to cheat, since he said he got hacked, meaning it was for sure a ban for cheats and not a random vac for something else (dont even know what something else could've been)
when he got banned, 7 days ago, he didn't communicate at all
instead he changed his name enough times on steam so that his alias wouldnt show on steam name history, changed his avatar and deleted all his friends
only when this thread came up on esr he came out and said "i got hacked", 5 days after it happens
seems more like the behaviour of someone that got caught than the one of someone who got hacked

:O) more drama pls

CASTRATE HIM I SAY!!!

ps.: expecting base to rename to yay0 for next 125fps cup

Yes, I am flogging my shitty content.

Feedback appreciated.
Things that I'm already aware of:

- Went too wild with warm-yellow filter (actually a bug in sony vegas)
- Angles (helmet mount is tricky because I'm moving around like an erratic squirrel), gopro positioned a bit silly
- music was Creative Commons and I stumbled upon it randomly, felt like a decent starting point to start editing around it, stuck with it

Enjoy. Or not, who cares.

What's with all the Hax lately? (133 comments)
Posted by Riot_Grrl @ 15:58 CDT, 16 July 2016 - iMsg
Is it cus of the school holiday? I barely saw a hacker the first 3 months I played. But in the last 2 days, I've played against three full 5-"man" pre-made teams of hackers. All 5 guys with exactly the same number of hours, and a comments page full of angry opponents warning others about their cheats. The first time, one even got an overwatch conviction in the game. (though, right at the end when it was too late)
And these were all prime matches. Does valve think it's hard to borrow a friends phone long enough to receive one code by text?

Can you get a cooldown for killing yourself every round? Cus if I'm stuck in a game with a bunch of morons who think it's fun to have a piece of software destroy enemies on their behalf, I'd rather just deny them that pleasure and get the game over with.
I don't feel like wasting my time giving pleasure to these "people", and I'm sure they will be banned and any lost Elo restored soon enough

Resolution vs FPS (25 comments)
Posted by Riot_Grrl @ 07:05 CDT, 15 July 2016 - iMsg
I have a pretty old GFX card, so I have pretty much everything turned quite low. I'm also using 1280X720 and I get a stable 300fps. I don't set the max any higher than that, because it jumps all over the place, but would only get me 20 fps extra or so anyways.
I'm thinking about going back to 1920X1080 so things are less fuzzy. I think I was getting around 260fps at that res before.
What do y'all think? Is more than doubling the effective resolution worth a drop of 40 FPS?
Now that I've played this game for a few months, I'm starting to think seeing clearly at distance is more important than a few milliseconds advantage when some guy surprises you.

Your thoughts?

Good mouse for glass mousepad? (30 comments)
Posted by Gremby @ 13:54 CDT, 14 July 2016 - iMsg
Hi,

I'm still using my SteelSeries Experience I-2 and I'm starting to have some difficulties.

1. Some surfaces on the pad is hard to track on. Not sure if its dirt, if its damage or if its the mouse.
2. The mouse glides wear out really fast. Like REALLY fast. New glides is amazing! There's hardly any sound from draging the mouse. But after a few days the glides has worn down and then there's this horrible sound.
3. Are there any glides that last a while on glass?

So my question is. Should I buy a different mouse (Fnatic Flick is what I have and there are no glides for it) or a different mousepad?

I just cant stand plastic and cloth. There just isnt that same control. The mouse feels heavy on anything but glass.

stphbozin:

I dont know if you heard that story before, maybe not. But its not a big secret actually. Many people know about that especialy russians.
I dont remember it so well. Maybe because it happens not in a single day. It takes like a few month for start to the end. So yea. i probably do not remember everything but overall i can tell you, maybe not so detailed but i will do my best.
I have to start from the moment when i was played duels agains a guy called N1 Huber. It was some russian guy who had very weird playstyle. It was hard to beat him in first time but when you understand how he plays it became more easier. He was all the time +back rail, almost never go for items just rail you on pickup and waiting for your push. So in some moment i start guessing that something unclear here. Because he is always hits his rails but nothing else. He was like 70% Rail and under 25% any other weapons.
At that moment i didn’t know how cheats actually looks. I saw some simple aimbot somewhere on q3 public. But Huber’s rails was looking okayish. So i start searching for ql cheats and you know it wasn’t hard to find. So yea short test shows me thats wh+autoshot force you to play like huber playing.
I dont know why didn’t report in support abut this guy. Probably i simply didn’t know about any kind of support yet. So i decide to tell about Huber to the N1 clan leader. You know its not good if your clan having a cheat in the roster because whole your clan will be under suspicion.
So, i start explaining to the clan leader this situation with huber and clan leader was like “no, its not possible, cheats for quake live are not exist”. And i am like “no dude its takes like 5 min to find and install cheats“. And he is like “ok give me your cheats or i dont belive you”.
So i give him a cheat. And he really liked how it works. He even told me that he gonna play with cheats now coz its fun. But i actually didn't believe him. I really thought it was an joke.
But not. He actually start playing with cheats. You know, he call me on skype and ask to help him install cheats on new computer coz he likes to play on lan with cheats. I was shoked. But we all know i am so fucking nice guy so i refuse to help him and ask him to stop cheating. And he said to me that he will increase his overall accurasy to 31% and then stop cheating. That was obvious bs.
I am sure i just didn’ know about support and how to report people. so i didn’t find other way then just tell to the people that this guy is cheating. Well actually i said before i don’t remember this story so well. It was me who report him to the community as a cheater or i just confirm that his is cheat. Does’t even matter. He got forgiveness from the community. You know he was cheating only 3 month or maybe a bit more. So community wasnt really mad at him.

Resolution problems :( (23 comments)

wondering if anyone can help me.

I'm getting black borders on my screen since I switched from my external monitor to my laptop &#128550;

I've tried setting a custom resolution, but the borders still show. Obviously changed r_mode to 12 (what I want to use) and borders still show.

I've also tried to change GPU scaling in my AMD catalyst control center app, and that doesn't remove the borders either :S

anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this? I reallly want to play with 1024 x 768 like I normally do

Attention CA Players!

You may have noticed that the bot in #capickup went offline some time ago due to the bot's creator being absent. As a solution, Lebanon un4x and United Kingdom Drayan have kindly offered to adapt #tdmpickup to also host 4v4 Clan Arena pickups in addition to the existing 4v4 TDM and 2v2 TDM gamemodes.

Each pickup game consists of 2 maps played, each with a roundlimit of 10, with one map picker on each team. The bot gets player's TDM and CA ratings directly from QLStats.net, and the new CA servers are already online. All you need to do is join #tdmpickup, and type:

!a ca

See you there!

Daniel Cormier VS Anderson Silva (4 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 01:14 CDT, 10 July 2016 - iMsg
Anderson lost to Chris Weidman twice (which ended his 7 years of total domination of the UFC) and more recently to Michael Bisping (which was quite a controvercial loss to be honest). Anderson is still seen by many as the greatest UFC fighter of all time. Do you think that his losses were due to unluck/bad preparation/too old now/not as much motivation to win as before ?

I like both Daniel and Anderson (but for some reasons I never really liked Jon Jones even before he was caught using drugs enhancers and pulled out of the UFC), they are 2 of my favorite fighters along with Fedor Emelianenko and Mirko Cro Cop.

Some people call Daniel as the "black Fedor", do you agree with that ?
To be honest, if Daniel would have fought Jon Jones a second time, I'm pretty sure that he could have won it, considering his current shape.

The thing I like the most with Daniel is that even if he's smaller than almost all his opponents (he's "only" 5"11' - 180cm tall) he still manages to beat them and his grabbing/take down technics are god-like. He also got some serious punching power and accuracy (remember his fight against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva ? That K.O. was like "WOW!").

If you already watched the fight between Daniel and Anderson, do you have some good links to share to watch it ? :D I tried to find it on youtube but there are only shitty quality videos or highlights.

Duplicating flags in (i)ctf (8 comments)
Posted by Guac @ 03:08 CDT, 7 July 2016 - iMsg
So by spamming \dropflag next to each other in my ictf server trading the flag until both players dropped for flooding, we could reproduce creating duplicate flags.

These flags could be capped, dropped as normal, and stayed in the server until someone with a flag tried to pick up another one or until one was returned with a flag already on the stand.

Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/XQ9u6Gr.jpg

Has anyone been able to do this before?

This only happens in Quake, all my other games are fine. Anyone have any suggestions?

Dear ESR users, please accept our sincere apologies for the sites downtime and loss of data from about ~12 hours ago. We have moved to a new server, but the old server was turned off on us a day earlier than expected. On the up side, new hardware is much faster, and new software is more reliable.

Introducing the sets plugin (17 comments)
Posted by iouonegirl @ 12:19 CDT, 5 July 2016 - iMsg
Good evening fellow quakers!

I would like to introduce a plugin that allows two players to reserve a duel server to play a set of a certain amount of games with each other.

I imagine with QuakeCon around the corner, a lot of pros might want to play some sets with each other to practice the QC mappool. It is always annoying and frustrating when players (noobs, trolls, ...) line up in the queue and refuse to spec or hop servers. This plugin will put anyone trying to disturb a set back into spectator position, so the original players can continue their set. It is not only meant for pros, of course, but could also be useful If you want to play some games with a friend without being disrupted and having to look for new servers.

When someone connects to the server where a set is going on, they will be automatically notified of this, so they know they don't have to wait on the current game. (Previously, specs would get mad if they waited 5+ minutes, only to find out the in-game players are playing a set and didn't see them join or bothered to warn them)

Once a set is reserved, players can optionally plan maps, so the plugin can automatically vote to go there, or remind players of their picks. (In a future version, the plugin will make the next map the only votable one during the end-screen.)

The plugin is currently in beta stage, so any comments, suggestions would be very much appreciated. The plugin can currently be found on the QL STOCKHOLM DUEL servers.

Installation:
The plugin can be found on my github page: here. Simply "wget" the raw into the minqlx-plugins folder and load it up. The default maximum of set reserving is 7 games. Alter "qlx_sets_maximum" to change this.

Usage/commands:
!v_sets - Displays the plugin version
!setcmds - Displays the available commands
!set or !setstatus - Displays the status of a set
!set X or !reserve X - Reserve X games to be played by the two players currently in game. Since I didn't want to be bothered by even sets (no winners), the plugin only allows odd numbers, with a maximum, customizable by the server
!setmaps - Displays the maps played&planned for the set
!setmaps cure hektik elder dm6 t7 - Sets the given maps for the set. (Duplicates and shorted/q3 names like dm6 and t7 are allowed and will work)
!lastset - Displays the results of the last set played on the server
!nextmap or !setnext - Votes to go to the next planned map if there is one
!forfeit - Forfeits a set (meaning a loss for each of the unplayed reserved games)
!suggest Maybe change the blue color to yellow so it's more visible - Sends a suggestion to my server. (Limited to 10 suggestions per steam ID)
!complain The plugin picked the wrong map! - Sends a complaint to my server (also limited to 10 / steam ID)

I really hope you guys can share your incredibly smart ideas and suggestions on this and help me to improve it, so that every server would want to install it :-)

Cheers,
I owe you one, girl


Plugin todo list / ideas for future releases
- Modify the mappool to only show the next map during the end-screen in a set
- Add in a timer for players to reconnect and continue the set before they are assumed to forfeit the set (in case of game crash / ddos).
- Make sets transferable across servers

Edit: added installation instructions so more servers can install it

Xbox play anywhere (5 comments)
Posted by earth @ 05:15 CDT, 5 July 2016 - iMsg
Microsoft have announced a service called Play Anywhere that allows you to play a purchased title on both xbox one and pc, syncing saves and achievements.
Now when you own an Xbox Play Anywhere digital title, it’s yours to play on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
Pick up where you left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC, bringing all your saves, game add-ons, and achievements with you

I'm no big console player so this doesn't affect me at all, but I'm interested to hear other views on this model.

What do m_yaw and m_pitch really do? (21 comments)
Posted by Arg @ 05:53 CDT, 4 July 2016 - iMsg
Guides say m_yaw and m_pitch are multipliers to the sensitivity, both cvars defaults are 0.022.

According to what i found around the internets and some good sense, one could set these vars to different values in order to have different x and y sensitivities (essentially just changing the ratio between the two vars).

At the same time though, i found some pros using non-default values, but with both the cvars having the same non-default value like 0.014 or 0.011 for both m_yaw and m_pitch, thus mantaining the same default ratio of 1:1.

I was asking myself why didn't they just keep the defaults and pick a different sensitivity value.

This lead me to an hypothesis i'd like to discuss: what if m_pitch and m_yaw represent the least angular movement the model is able to move between one frame and another? Wouldn't it be good to set m_yaw and m_pitch to the lowest values possible and then raise the sensitivity to keep the same sens*yaw and sens*pitch values? This way the least angular movement my model would be able to do would be much smaller (thus precise) than 0.0022 and yet i'd have the same sensitivity I always used?

I tested it and, while the sensitivity has remained the same, I cannot notice any big difference in pointer precision, but it may be i'm just too noob to notice it. I also fear that by lowering values I may end up in more floating point approximation than before.

Tyryl cheats (115 comments)
Posted by agentsm1th @ 03:44 CDT, 4 July 2016 - iMsg
Some of you might have been under the impression that "Tyryl", despite his autistic rage and threats of violence, is in fact a "clean" Quake player. That is not entirely the case. When it suits him, he toggles on his bot to punish opponents mid game.

Basically, all he has to do is summarily convict you of cheating, at which point he will feel justified in cheating to "level the playing field".

In this video, he lets me get a bit of a lead, then joins the game and bots me at 0:18. This all started after he became frustrated that I beat him repeatedly, robbing him of teh elos. After I spec'd, he began playing "normally" again and took steps to lower his game lg acc.

Proper motions for LG? (36 comments)
Posted by 3Shells @ 00:14 CDT, 4 July 2016 - iMsg
LG is likely my least accurate weapon and I'm trying to improve with it. I read an earlier thread about using zero think-time bots with 999 HP/Armor to practice on with LG and I've been putting aside one hour a day the past few days to see if it'll help me. I'm wondering what are the proper motions for using LG? I tend to make small x-hair adjustments with wrist motion, but its not fast enough for hitting people who are dodging shaft. I've been practicing more with using elbow/forearm for LG, is this the right way to do it and is there anything else I need to know?

Any advice is appreciated
