i dont understand the internet anymore (6 comments)
Posted by doped @ 20:47 CST, 2 March 2015 - iMsg
What happened? the influx of a whole new generation shaping comments, content etc. to something that i just dont find funny anymore? or dont care about, or simply grew out of.. or is it really just that much more shitty, and its NOT me growing older and tired of it?

What is going on.. I'm not really visiting this site anymore either, it all just seem like a contest of who can post the most stupid comment anyway.

And ppl are still discussing mouse, gfx, config, whatever, like it's some new thing, highres textures etc etc. It never changes, its the same shit with a new generation.. its the same, a repeat, well not, it seems dumber than before. :/

TV went to shit with all the reality bs, sex grinding, stupid idiots etc, stopped watching back in 2008.

The world is shit, "oh well, what you cant change, you just have to accept" no fucking way, thats the REAL problem, we accept this shitty bs.. Fifty shades of bs prob highest grossing with all that FREE ADVERTISING. you see it, but does it anyway.

COCK SUCKING ON THE BUS, COME ON SHITTY GENERATION... fuuuck this. I'm done. Ye, that miley dickface whore wont ruin the generation, its the parents not the tv etc.. oooh how fucking wrong you were.. 6y old girls watching that and the mother saying stfu to me, "the girls want to listen to the music" ... OH YEAH, THAN ANACONDA ONE WITH WHORE DICKFACE CUNT SHIT.. GREAT MUSIC BTW!!! RECOMMEND!.. while they masturbate on their 6million euro iPads each...

tl;dr
world has gone to shitter, now internet too.

UT4 Pre alpha - Test it guys!!! (1 comment)
Posted by Lw)f @ 11:44 CST, 2 March 2015 - iMsg
Hello there beloved Quakers,

Theres a new very promising build today, that I hope some of you will test with us and even possibly give feedback about.
I can't say enough on UT forums we have to inspire from Quake for a lot of great stuffs, so I hope for minimal trollings (sigh) and maximum enjoyment and CONSTRUCTIVE feedbacks from you guys ;) .

On the same occasion (2 birds one stone), here is a very nie little tutorial made by Zaccubus about UT4:



EDIT: By the way for all mappers around, it's time to try this build, since the map editor is free!!!
Sidenote: maps that will be made could be put on market place and sold (make good maps = get $$$)

A gamer crisis (24 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 10:17 CST, 2 March 2015 - iMsg
Im suffering a crisis. I stopped playing quakelive bc i cant stand being forced to play with a gay announcer, im currently messing a little with reflex and qw, but im being unable to get hooked to any game right now. Upgraded my cpu/mem last year (i5-4570, 8g ram), and two weeks ago i bought a 750 SC. Ive bought/downloaded a lot of games recently, but im failing to get hooked to them. Even playing games i enjoyed a lot some years ago but stopped playing because of x motives, like bc hardware not good enough to play at max settings, example Oblivion, i installed it again, maxed graphics, downloadad hi res pack, but it feels empty like the rest of the games i try.

For some reason my suspension of disbelief is failing. Example: I get close to textures, no mater the game if you get close enough you see the texture pixels, and it makes me sad. Im afraid im maturing at 37 years old and these games are starting to feel empty. That or my perfectionist side has become too demanding. We are in 2015, more than 10 years has passed since doom3 (which was the last game that made me crazy happy with its graphic improvements for the time) and i just see minor improvements in games. Dying Light for example, it has great graphics, but you still see pixels if you get close to things and the animations are good but nothing revolutionary.

QL Funds raising initiative on Indiegogo (21 comments)
Posted by Tonks @ 15:53 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
Overfrag crew started a Crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Goal is to raise starting money needed for organising Quake live instagib tournaments (located in Europe) and prizes. Since there are also no public servers for any instagib mode, money will also go for self-managed server bots that will control the games.

These guys arguably have the most aggressive playstyles in quakelive.
Just want to know how these two "pitbulls" of quake (cliche i know) compare.

In what ways are their styles similar?

In what ways are their styles different?

How do their strengths and weaknesses compare?

And finally who wins a BO7 prime av3k vs prime evil?

Was RTCW the template for the modern FPS (3 comments)
Posted by Terbo @ 12:35 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
At the time the game came out I was such a Quake fanboy that I despised any games that tried to make FPS games more "real"... I ended up not really giving the game much love until Enemy Territory was realeased 2 years later. I've just recently been going back through the singleplayer again and that's what sparked this journal entry.

I have to say the game still holds up and I think you could argue that it set the template for the modern shooter much like how Wolfenstein 3d set the template for 90s shooters. It packaged a great story driven singleplayer, fantastic multiplayer modes and it even included co-op with ZOMBIES... and this was nearly 15 years ago.

Next year will be it's 15th anniversary. An HD release would be amazing! I'd love to Return to Return to Castle Wolfenstein and I don't think I'm alone.

Asus vg248qe windows dragging (6 comments)
Posted by acid_reptile @ 08:27 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
So i bought a new monitor because i thought my 2233rz is broken. i got some graphic errors now and then while playing quake. Fortunatly it was just my 560ti which was dieing slowly. (i was already on my last working DVI port. HDMI broke a long time ago)

Now i noticed that dragging windows seems to be much smoother on the 120hz samsung as on the 144hz asus screen. Is that normal? Not that this would be a problem. Just wondering. The monitor seems awesome for gaming, but i have to use this old ati 4850 HD. It does 200-250 FPS in quake, but my 2233rz is still going strong. I think about getting a new graphics card for the money, as i also play other games which only do like 45 fps now. (with the 560ti it was only 20-30 fps more, so it was time to upgrade anyways)

So someone noticed the same with dragging windows? Shouldn't it be much smoother than on the samsung 120hz?

Question to Russians and UKR (cd prices) (17 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 04:14 CST, 28 February 2015 - iMsg
Hello. There is a possibility I'm going to go to Russia for a tour with one of my band.

I was wondering about the CDs price in Russia. In Europe, we sell our cds 8 or 9 euros, and our tshirts 14. How is it compared to the Russian prices at the moment ?

What price would be an okay price in your opinion ? For instance, what is the price of professional CDs like the ones of Metallica and so on in supermarkets (because we usually sell them cheaper) ?



Also, I might also come in Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia later on and possibly in Ukraine. So, baltic states are in euros, but not Ukraine.

Ukrainians, even if your money is probably going to fluctuate until there, what kind of prices in Hryvna would be affordable for a CD or a tshirt ?

"Why doesn't the league have a finals?

This is the question I asked. Since no one could present a good reason not to have one the only logical thing someone could do was create one! Right? Team DeathMatch has been through the grinder, but we all know TDM still comes out looking better and more appealing than whatever "it" was you brought home from the bar last week. We can sit here and find excuses why she isn't so pretty anymore. We can choose sides or even play the martyr. Or... we can just watch four of the best teams playing in a Single Elimination Bracket this Sunday starting at 12:00 CST, 1 March 2015

pimp your firefox (72 comments)
Posted by esdf @ 06:52 CST, 26 February 2015 - iMsg
So, I've recently gone back to linux, this time a Fedora instead of arch.

First thing I've noticed is, of course, youtube not working due to no flash and being forced to use the crappy html5 container in firefox or install chrome if I want to watch videos.

So, for a few days I've used the html5 player and it's horrible. or beyond horrible, can't decide yet..

Long story short, finally set up my firefox more or less how I want to, so here's my config.

The extension I'm using is Open With (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-with/). I'm using this not only for youtube, but for anything with a video running in a flash container. Basically, go about:openwith once you install it and add

/usr/bin/mpv --force-window --ytdl

To make this work you will obviously need mpv and youtube-dl on your system. Set the options to display as menu item on view menu, main context menu and main context menu (links). You can now right-click youtube, twitch, etc links and open them directly in mpv. You can also browse to a twitch channel or youtube page or whatever ytdl supports and just click the mpv icon and it'll load the video.

Now on to embedding mpv instead of flash/html5 container. To do this I needed to install mozplugger and modify it a bit to use mpv instead of mplayer which is the default. think this is the only thing that needs to be changed:

/etc/mozpluggerrc
define(MP_CMD,[mpv -really-quiet --keep-open=yes $1 </dev/null])
define(MP_EMBED,[embed noisy ignore_errors: MP_CMD(--autofit=$width -wid $window $1)])
define(MP_NOEMBED,[noembed noisy ignore_errors maxaspect swallow(mpv): MP_CMD($1)])


Since I was editing mozpluggerrc I stumbled upon openoffice part and made it work with libre:

define([OO],[swallow(VCLSalFrame) fill: libreoffice --nologo --norestore --view $1 "$file"])

Next thing you need to embed your player of choice in firefox is to grab ViewTube (http://isebaro.com/viewtube/?ln=en). Note that you'll need greasemonkey for that. While viewtube is great it unfortunately doesn't support videos embeded on external sites, like ESR for example. That left me a bit disappointed, but I kept looking and seems the same author made the LinkTube extension which replaces all the embeded content on external sites with a link to the video. Unfortunately it makes for an ugly link, so I had to "trim" that script a bit. Here's the trimmed script which only displays the link and no other crap: http://pastie.org/9984555

This is where openwith extension comes in handy again, you can just right-click it and open in mpv and continue to browse with no hassle.

Anyway, hope you find it useful.

Aerowalk QuadDamage (Week 4 Final) (34 comments)
Posted by Jehar @ 18:33 CST, 25 February 2015 - iMsg
The (in)famous Quad Damage tournament is back! Uniting Quake players from every title, the Quad Damage will span four games across four weeks: QuakeWorld, Quake II, Quake Live, and Quake IV. To keep the focus on game differences rather than map knowledge, we'll be showcasing the tried and true Aerowalk in each game. Playing in any week will net you points - playing in multiple games will net you bonus points!

This is the final week, finally! Work and illness have delayed things for almost a month, but we want to finish this cup off with a bang. This has been largely experimental, but unquestionably fun. After this week, there will be some notes and tweaks, and we'll churn out another... likely sans Q4. I'm sure it will be missed.

After looking if QuakeCon 2015 had any tournament I saw they had nothing but "Stay tuned for more information".

However there are rules up for: QUAKECON® 2015 QUAKE LIVE® TRI-MASTER TOURNAMENT

The Quake Live Tri-Master Tournament will feature competitions for up to sixteen (16) four-player teams, where each team will be put to the test in a triathlon comprised of Capture the Flag (CTF) , Team Deathmatch (TDM), and Duel to determine which team can stake their claim to being the one true TriMaster Champion. Teams who come out on top will share prizes of $32,000. Following the Triathlon Tournament, the top two individual duelers selected by their team will then face off to claim an additional $8,000 and the title of Grand Master Champion.

Update: The Quake Live Tri-Master Tournament has now been announced on QuakeCon.org.

Fragging for Fun... Or Real Sport? (73 comments)

This is an argument for the validity of electronic sports as an actual recognised sport. I wrote this in 2006 but didn't publish it until now. Most of the information might be a bit dated, but I think it might be useful for some people. This is aimed towards an audience that is not familiar with eSports and therefore has explanations in some depth and comparisons to other established sports.

Tournament Idea for duel (21 comments)
Posted by aeoL @ 03:33 CST, 24 February 2015 - iMsg
I've had this idea for a while now but how about a duel cup where no one knows who they're playing. Basically everyone gets given an alias to play on the day and only the admins know who's who. Duelers have to adapt and spectators have to figure out who's who and earn prizes for correct guesses etc.

I reckon it would be a fun idea to try at least once.

Abyssus 2014 & G100s RAPID REVIEW (4 comments)
Posted by ratman1337 @ 20:02 CST, 23 February 2015 - iMsg
So having small hands and coming from a WMO I was looking for a replacement. So I tried these two out and here are the results.

Abyssus:

Cons:
Shape isn't for everyone. It's very palmable and almost a combination between an ergonomic and ambidextrous mouse. Razer seem to go for aesthetic designs that can be negative to the mouse.

Clicking in middle mouse button takes a little to much force and causes a lot of vibration within the mouse.

Pros:
Perfect glide and feet
Cord is light and flexible
Perfect weight for it's size
Weight distribution is decent
Sensor feels better than the G100s
Switches are a treat to use
Feels really sturdy
Looks nice

The side grips are decent compared the old deathadders glossy ones were if you are sweating it's like trying to hold a lubed up dildo.

G100S:

Pros:
Shape +1 (most claw users would love this)
Sensor

Cons:
Build quality (feels almost hollow)
Switches feel terrible compared the abyssus
Cable was annoying because it was stiff
Weight distribution was horrible
Feet don't glide well at all
Looks bad

Overall the G100s really does feel like a budget mouse with excellent shape and decent sensor. If only there was premium edition of the G100s that improved on the quality of the mouse.

The Razer Abyssus is really a treat to use that is if you can deal with the unusual shape that are present in most Razer mice.

my friends are mean (33 comments)
Posted by esdf @ 13:34 CST, 20 February 2015 - iMsg
Story One

So, I got this problem. My friends always tell me I'm a hipster. At first I was like 'lol u guys funny', but now it's going on for quite some time (read: months) and it's starting to annoy me. Real friends shouldn't say mean things to each other, right? Is it time for me to break off some friendships or should I stick to that old saying, keep your friends close and enemies even closer? I normally wouldn't care about these "trolls", but I recently lost a lot of weight and even though I got a confidence boost, I still don't feel comfortable (comparison pic).

What's worse, people that pass me by on the street sometimes give me that disgusted look so now I'm starting to feel insecure. Maybe it really is my clothes and looks? Anyway, I will provide some pictures so you can form a good opinion and tell me what you really think.

Here's what I think. I like to dress nice, I like to take care of my looks, does that really make me a hipster? Do people that mock me deserve to be called my friends? Should I give them another chance and pass off their trolling for what it is or break off all contact?

As promised, below are some pics so you can make a good comment.

same Sensitivity all games or different? (6 comments)
Posted by StillBlaze @ 10:19 CST, 20 February 2015 - iMsg
Wondering how many people use different sensitivities for different games or do you just try to make it as the same as possible?

Have been slacking with Quake in 2015 mainly cause when i get on at 6am theres barely any games i can get into straight away ((

But anyway ive been playing CSGO a while on 40cm/360 and now when i try to go back to Quake with 26cm-30cm/360 i simply can not play, other then the mouse feeling super fast i just cant adapt like i used to.

With my cramped setup and speed of Quake i can barely do 90 degree turns with 40cm/360 let alone a 180 and if i wanted to play some PQL it would be far worse then classic.

I have a large mouse pad but use it vertical instead of the standard horizontal.

More of a sad thread then answers but say what you will and know on your experiences.

Advice for QL config scripting please :) (20 comments)
Posted by storm @ 04:39 CST, 20 February 2015 - iMsg
Hiya,

I'm having some trouble scripting a zoom bind in my config to work properly. Basically it does work, but if I get fragged it thinks what ever weapon I pick up is in the railgun zoom mode (if I was fragged with railgun out) which gets me fragged when I'm constantly zooming with rockets. Hope that makes sense, basically the zoom script means if I press my railgun bind twice it zooms in / out.

Here is my bind cfg:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
seta weapon_1 "weapon 1; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_1" // gnt
seta weapon_2 "weapon 2; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_2" // mg
seta weapon_3 "weapon 3; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_1" // ssg
seta weapon_4 "weapon 4; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_1" // gl
seta weapon_5 "weapon 5; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_1" // rl
seta weapon_6 "weapon 6; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_3" // lg
seta weapon_7 "weapon 7; vstr rg_1; vstr ch_2" // rg
seta weapon_8 "weapon 8; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_1" // pls
seta weapon_14 "weapon 14; vstr rg_o; vstr ch_2" // hmg

seta ch_1 "cg_crosshairsize 24; cg_drawCrosshair 3; cg_crosshairColor 4"
seta ch_2 "cg_crosshairsize 24; cg_drawCrosshair 6; cg_crosshairColor 4"
seta ch_3 "cg_crosshairsize 24; cg_drawCrosshair 2; cg_crosshairColor 4"

seta rg_o "-zoom; bind r vstr weapon_7" // This binds my rail key to change weapon to rail, and is executed on each weapon (see below)
seta rg_1 "-zoom; bind r vstr rg_0" // This is executed once you've chose rail, and binds rail key to Zoom
seta rg_0 "+zoom; bind r vstr rg_1" // This is the zoom, and also binds my rail key to zoomout

// -- WEAPONS -- //
bind a "vstr weapon_1"
bind z "vstr weapon_2"
bind v "vstr weapon_3"
bind b "vstr weapon_4"
bind w "vstr weapon_5"
bind g "vstr weapon_6"
bind r "vstr weapon_7"
bind TAB "vstr weapon_8"
bind c "vstr weapon_14"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I heard there is a new system which is superior to 'vstrs' in QL but I don't understand them yet, I think they were called aliases? If anyone can help me out it'd be awesome. Thanks guyz.

btw ch_1/2/3 are crosshair vstr's, rg_1/1/0 are for the railgun zoom script.

LCD MONITOR 160 Hz and more? (44 comments)
Posted by JiyhuaWei @ 07:38 CST, 19 February 2015 - iMsg
So i was ready some hardware news as i do everyday i have half a dozen of hardware websites that i visit daily out of boredom (they are all pretending to be real journalism but it's all publicity by the way, same for video game review websites). So yeah i was wandering around bored as fuck of the non evolution of the hardware and then i spoted this : http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/acer-xg270hu...esync.html

So the monitor is 2560x1440p and is runing at 144Hz. And there is a bunch others coming : http://lmgtfy.com/?q=2560x1440+144+Hz

They are all using DVI-D which means our 1920x1080p 144Hz monitors we already have could already run higher, like 160 or 170Hz? Maybe much more? 200+Hz? What are the limits? i remember on CRT we could calculate the max refresh the monitor could output.

I found a few uninterresting stuff googling with the keywords : 1080 170hz. One was reaching 170Hz with nvinspector software.

I have a BenQ XL2411T so i figured i could go higher than 144Hz maybe with some nerds helping out.

Wmo problem and replacement (31 comments)
Posted by nub_ @ 02:34 CST, 19 February 2015 - iMsg
I've been using wmo for years but since moving to new hardware I can't get it to work on 500hz (win7 x64). I've tried following the steps from ngohq, esreality, various YouTube videos, forums etc. and nothing works. I either end up with same 125hz or I end up with dead mouse that I get working again through device manager.
After digging a bit of info on my problem I found that it could be mobo related (asrock z97 extreme4), and that the way to solve it could be disabling USB 3.0, although mouse was and will be plugged in 2.0 port. I can't disable it since I need 3.0 ports.

Anyway, I'm thinking of buying a new mouse.

I would like to have:
- similar shape to wmo
- softwareless 500hz and 400 or 800 dpi (I don't like that junk that comes with a lot of mice, or at least I would like to keep that at minimum)


Any recommendations?

PC issue every mouse I use is imprecise? (56 comments)
Posted by lukeyslife @ 12:49 CST, 18 February 2015 - iMsg
Hi everyone,

So for around 2 years now I have had a problem with every mouse I have used on this PC, whether it be gaming grade or not. It affects every application used, not just games even the desktop and programs outside of an OS like startup repair.
OS's used: Windows 7, 8.1, Ubuntu.

The issue seems to be with general tracking, as I play games especially FP shooters aiming is a big part of the genre so I am put at a big disadvantage with my potential cut.

The issue is that the mice I use especially in-game feels similar to deceleration, for example if I were to move 90 degrees left or right I could make the movement but the mouse would feel slightly slower to make the movement; this isn't mouse lag as the input isn't delayed however the movement feels slightly behind.

The issue isn't down to mice I have used 6 different gaming mice, they all feel the same so please don't answer with it's down to DPI etc.

I have already negated some components being the cause as I have either swapped them out one time or more and have rigorously tested them in different scenarios.

Components negated: PSU, CPU, MOTHERBOARD, MICE,

It is either to do with conflicting hardware, or some settings maybe in the registry / bios.
I'm basing it on my GPU or possibly monitor as they seem most likely for any kind of delay which could have an affect on how the mouse feels.

is there are solutions anyone could give, I appreciate any support.

AMD A10 APU + QL = rock solid 250FPS? (19 comments)
Posted by noacc @ 12:10 CST, 18 February 2015 - iMsg
question number one - will AMD A10 X4 6800K run QL at rock solid 250FPS (no bloom, vertexlights =1, no marks, r_picmip 5, 1080p)?
question number two - does AMD A10 X4 6800K support 144Hz with BenQ monitors?

I guess both answers are yes, but it still not 100% clear, anyone with similar setup here?

alternatively, will Intel Core i3-4130 with HD4400 do the job?

EDIT: mobo will support Dual-Link DVI but will the integrated HD8670D allow me to set 1080p@144Hz? It can do 1440p@60Hz so the bandwidth is not an issue, my main concern is being familiar with AMD buggy software, I am not sure they are supporting this specific resolution and refresh rate I need...

I've been having fun with this game. It's very much a casual, not too serious shooter, and I love the simplicity and really enjoy the aesthetic. It reminds me a very great deal of Quake 2 instagib with the maps where you're tiny and running around a kitchen or something, but every map is like that.

Anybody else tried this game? It's a lot of fun, and coming from Quake you get a huge advantage right off the bat.

Cloth pads like Mantis Control? (6 comments)
Posted by acid_reptile @ 06:58 CST, 18 February 2015 - iMsg
So i recently switched to cloth pads, after like 10 years of using hardpads. Still had this hardly ever used razer mantis control laying around. I bought it back in the days when i was playing with laser mice (G3,G9)

I tried it a few days ago and i really like it for my opticals (G1,mx300&Aurora)

Long story short, i ordered a goliathus control and was pretty sure they send me the speed edition. Then i checked the pictures on the razer zone page and was like wtf. It's actually the control edition. There's like 10 times more friction on the mantis control. They don't compare in the slightest. I don't see why so many people recommend this pad. (unless they like low friction and play very low sens) Is the speed edition even faster? or is it the other way around with the names? (if i remember right this wouldn't be the first time)

Any recommendations?

Hi guys. I need some good eyes to judge the video quality of two demos.

I've rendered two demos 6 times each, with each video having a slightly different encoder quality. For each test, can you tell the difference and which video is the best and worst? Please check them out in 1080p since that requires the highest bitrate.

Test 1:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2Hqq90c8Rk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VM8SOCVZB-I
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkGjZz-oBZw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbE9Cu1mVU0

Test 2:

I basically want to adjust the quality of igmdb.org encoder output. Right now it creates gigantic 30+Mbit/sec mp4s which result in huge downloads (2GB for a 10 minute render). After going through YouTube the quality gets reduced anyway so a high quality video output doesn't really mean much. I'm trying to see if reducing the encoder quality is even noticeable.

Thank you.

extraQL 1.18 with Demo Browser (2 comments)
Posted by PredatH0r @ 12:32 CST, 15 February 2015 - iMsg
The new version includes a simple Demo Browser.

To use it, you need to
- run extraQL.exe locally on your machine (not just hook.js)
- go to "Userscripts / Userscript Management" and enable the "Demo Browser" script

From the "Play" menu you can now choose "Browse Demos".
(You might have to /web_reload if you just enabled the script)

The Demo Browser itself looks like this:

EDIT: if you don't have auto-update enabled, you can download the new version from https://sourceforge.net/projects/extraql/
