fps in XP32 vs win7 64 (3 comments)
Posted by ant2 @ 13:58 GMT, 1 December 2015 - iMsg
I finally upgraded and have a dual boot setup.. on a timedemo on Xp it manages 216 FPS on win7 only 190? Why so much difference..? Anyone else noticed this?

i ran the timedemo multiple times to make sure its accurate.. and tried disabling power scaling features in BIOS

I tried 3 different nvidia drivers on the win 7 setup not much difference

I also tried Q3A demo four and the win 7 setup was faster this time!

HoQ TDM Fall 2015 - Catch up round (9 comments)
Posted by xou @ 09:23 GMT, 30 November 2015 - iMsg
The catch up round of the TDM league is already well started, and just six matches are left to be played.

Three of them will be played this monday evening, including the Div1 decider for the 2nd rank: Russia Deliberate Murder vs Europe REKT. Also, tonight's the night for Europe WORLDSTAR with two matches. They should be getting into the top3, and possibly the 2nd rank if they can defeat Europe dioxide!

On Tuesday evening, the Europe Hateful Eight should confirm their top rank in div3 against Poland Dretwe Lamy. Somehow, Germany ashlen decided to let their chance slip away and gave Hateful Eight a default win last week. Also Europe last pick will face the Europe p1mps and aim for a 4th consecutive win.

Finally, the last Div2 match between Europe dioxide and Europe last pick, which should be the decider for Div2 first rank, will be played next monday, 7th of December.

All the results of the previous matches are available. Also we have some VODs and spec demos.

g_startingAmmo_ doesn't work in Race (4 comments)
Posted by x0rnn @ 10:01 GMT, 28 November 2015 - iMsg
g_startingWeapons 3 - doesn't work
g_startingAmmo_rl 0 - doesn't work
g_loadout 0 - useless but tried anyway

You still spawn with a RL if there is a RL placed anywhere in the map. How do you disable this? A lot of defrag/race maps only have those weapons in certain locations with limited ammo, but in QL you spawn with them and have more ammo...

To add more info, I compiled a map by adding "gametype: race" to weapon_rocketlauncher, because otherwise it didn't spawn in-map at all, but now you spawn with it as well.

To add even more info, I'm using a custom race factory with "g_startingWeapons 3" that works if there are no weapons placed in the map (with "gametype: race" in GtkRadiant), but if there are, you automatically spawn with them. This is obviously a bug...

Low FPS after GPU upgrade (31 comments)
Posted by Rissk @ 07:31 GMT, 28 November 2015 - iMsg
I use to have a GTX 560 that ran QL on default settings at 2560x1440 with 125+ FPS at all times, no matter the map or how many people were there.

After getting Fallout 4 and finding out it's time for an upgrade, I purchased the Asus R9 380 strix 4gb card and it runs Fallout 4 at ultra settings, but now I'm getting between 20-40 FPS on QL, wtf?

Anybody else experience something like this?

I have the most recent drivers, default settings, etc.

Quake Live - choppy all of a sudden (5 comments)
Posted by Leedow @ 23:32 GMT, 27 November 2015 - iMsg

Been playing Quake Live on and off for years since beta. I've never really had any problems with performance. Now I do. I'll try to be as specific as I possibly can be.

The Problem
I get really choppy movement, it feels like there is a 50kg ball and chain tied to one of the leg of the character. It feels what it looks like when players warp. I've asked multiple players if I warp but I do not.
When I pan (move the mouse) while standing still there are no issues. While moving and looking at the edge of a wall it looks like onion layers of the edge. Almost like a ghosting effect.
I have no idea of what is causing this. All I can say that this is totally unplayable conditions.

When it occurs
Only when playing on internet servers. The issue does not appear when playing the tutorial vs Crash.
Since it only appears on internet servers. I feel that I can rule out any video settings but I'm not sure(?).

When did it start happening
Two days ago. I've tried playing a few games but it is absolutely horrible. I thought that it was an ISP or routing error meaning that I got lost packages or something like that so I waited before I'm asking on the forums. I haven't done anything to the config that I can think of. The only time I even touch settings is if something is wrong.... like now. Also, I haven't really done anything with my computer recently. Last windows update was 40 days ago.

Resolution - Desktop (2560x1440)
Vsync OFF (ON does nothing)

cl_packetdup 1
cl_maxpackets 125
rate 25000

com_maxfps 144 (usually, but I've tried 60-250 and the choppiness is 50 times worse at 60. A bit better at 250 but still horrible)

I'll post more or specific settings if you need me to, I'm just not that good remembering them while writing.

Been playing using the Steam client for a while now. Got 994 hours clocked.

My setup
Windows 7 x64
Asus MG278 144hz Freesync
MSI 390 8GB
Intel 4790k
100/100 fiber bandwidth

Things I've checked
netgraph in game shows pretty much a flatline, not much jitter at all. If I have 40 ping on a German server it ranges from 30-50 or something like that. A Swedish server is a constant 8-12 ping.

My fps never changes. Whatever I set com_maxfps to it stays there.

Setup a ping to my own router for many hours. 0% packet loss. (of course below 1ms latency)
Setup a ping to google for many hours. 6 packets lost in total (out of many many thousands of packages). Latency average of 10ms. shows A+ grade all the time

In an act of desperation - Installing the latest driver for GFX. Though as mentioned, I have no problem at all vs bots so this should not be related to the graphics.

So... if anyone of you have any pointers at all. I will try it as soon as possible.

Made a blog for povohat's mouse accel (24 comments)
Posted by a_qwer @ 07:28 GMT, 26 November 2015 - iMsg
Hey guys,

Since Quake3/QuakeLive are among the few games that have good acceleration options, I think a good bunch of you know that povohat made a mouse driver based on QL's settings. It's been available on for a few years now.

Lately it seems like the driver has been picking up in popularity, so I have been fielding a ton of the same questions over and over. I decided to make a blog that I can link people to cover all of this stuff. So, here it is:

Any feedback on it would be much appreciated.

How to change flag on QL profile? (14 comments)
Posted by 3Nex @ 17:48 GMT, 25 November 2015 - iMsg
My Quakelive flag is wrong and then people keep talking Swedish to me expecting me to understand. Which I don't. So I'm wondering if there is a cheaper solution than getting Swedish lessons? Because I can't find the option to select country or flag in Quake settings, but I've seen other people change their flag (during game even).

My Steam flag is Croatian, but in Quake it's Swedish, so Steam doesn't seem to matter.

How has reflex changed since the very first buyable version came out? Back then the game didn't feel that great to me and it crashed every 10 minutes.

I've seen in a fragmovie that there are now map textures, but other than that, what are the things that have changed since then? (I guess since aprox a year ago)

"The Quad Damage Project (September 2015 - December 2015).
For next four months the viewers of my channel will get four short video montages that are sequels to my previous projects from year 2012. Nothing too fancy, just quick edits with WolfcamQL and Wolf Whisperer that I thought I must have in my personal YouTube collection. As for this time, it's a slightly different project based on the bones of FAST CAPPIN' 2k12 flick."

Spawn powerups on map/round start? (14 comments)
Posted by x0rnn @ 00:00 GMT, 24 November 2015 - iMsg
So I'm porting a defrag map to QL, and it has a battlesuit and haste spawned on start, but in QL, they spawn only after 35 seconds.

This is completely useless and limiting, you can't possibly expect anyone to wait 35 seconds to start the run/race just to pick the powerups. Is there a way via a server command to spawn powerups on map/round start?

If not, please push a tiny update that changes this for the race gametype, otherwise there can't be a big variety in custom race/defrag maps for QL...

USB Mics in Windows 8/10 issues (5 comments)
Posted by storm @ 07:21 GMT, 23 November 2015 - iMsg
Hello all,

Apparently there is a long running issue with (all?) USB mics since Windows 8 and now still in 10 where the recording volume is too low even when maxed out. A quick search on google shows hundreds of posts relating to it and all of them without solutions (except for the useless advice like 'turn it up duuhhh)
And does anyone know if there is a registry key I could add to force the mic boost option to appear for my mic?

Also just to add - people haven proven it is win 8/10 because they can install 7 and it's all fine. Even in a virtual machine. These mics don't use custom drivers, just plug and play.

Anyone else come across this?

Player models lurching at low timescales (11 comments)
Posted by quake is potat @ 11:22 GMT, 20 November 2015 - iMsg
When I am playing demos in wolfcam the player models are actually "lurching" or jerking forwards when moving instead of moving or accelerating/decelerating steadily. You don't really notice this at timescale 1 but as soon as you start using lower timescales it becomes noticeable and pretty annoying.

Check the ragnarok scene:

All my wolfcam cg_demosmooth options appear to be enabled and com_maxfps is 125 (not sure if that's relevant here). Upgraded wolfcam from 11.03 to 11.11, no difference.

I've seen some movies where low-timescale scenes are completely smooth.

How can I fix this?

Quake 5 release theory (54 comments)
Posted by Ward_- @ 19:40 GMT, 19 November 2015 - iMsg
OK, so first off Q5 wont be called Quake 5 just QUAKE like they did with doom. Q5 will be announced a month or 2 after doom 4 releases and they'll have a playable Q5 alpha/beta to play at QuakeCon to test and get feedback and QuakeCon 2016 will be the last time they use QL and they'll switch to Q5 for Qcon '17. Doom 4 will be their casual sp/mp game while Q5 will be only mp and a lot more serious and it'll have snapmaps. Q5 will be f2p but with buyable skins, player models, announcers etc. Q5 will get more viewership than cs lol and dota combined and Quake will become the king of esports.

Components for Kinzuadder (4 comments)

Would the Kinzu v3 and DA Chroma be compatible for this build? I have one of each lying around in my office that I never play with, although I use the Kinzu for work-related stuff because it's so comfortable.

The reason I'm asking is because a quick google search seems to suggest that everyone's been using a Kinzu v2 Pro and a Deathadder 3G (I have a 3G back at home in the UK, no idea where I'd get a kinzu v2 pro from though).

My first fragmovie, containing frags from about 3 weeks of replays.

Lack of shaftfrags is because they look quite weird due to the replays being recorded by the server, rather than the client.
I'm no good at editing, or doing sick creative recams, and it's only one song long so it's pretty much demo + mp3.

Oh well, enjoy.

hardware upgrade? (138 comments)
Posted by rvmble @ 12:12 GMT, 17 November 2015 - iMsg
hi folks,
since i am long out of date concerning pc hardware i just wanted to ask for help here.
i want to know if it makes any sense to upgrade my current system so i can play some newer games like reflex (even if it would mean with very low settings).
to the point, thats what i am on right now:

- Motherboard Gigabyte 965P-DQ6
- CPU Core 2 Duo 6700 @ 2.66 GHz
- RAM Kingston KHX6400D2LLK2/4G 2x2GB
- GFX Radeon X1950 XT

pretty old stuff all in all. but since i am only playing quake live (till now) and using the pc to run stuff like the typical office shit and matlab it was enough untill now, no complaints to be honest.

QUESTION: i have very little money to spend. does it make sense to upgrade the GFX card and maybe the RAM (2x4GB)?

thanks and dont laugh at me please :D

My new setup for Christmas : (48 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 23:57 GMT, 16 November 2015 - iMsg
CPU: Intel Core i5 6500 (Skylake architecture, quad-core, 3.30GHz up to 3.60GHz with turboboost), close performances to the good old Core i5 4690K, if not better, at least for future games, because of DDR4.

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 with 4GB of RAM

RAM: 2 x 4GB of Crucial DDR4 PC17000 (so 8GB in total)

MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-B150M-D3H Socket 1151 Chipset Intel B150

HDD: Seagate Barracuda SATA III 6GB/s 7200 RPM - 2000 Go

SSD: Crucial BX100 - 250 Go

CASE: Fractal Design Define R5 with 2 fans included

PSU: Fortron Raider S 550 Watts 80+ Silver

Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64bits

Pre-made PC with Windows 10 installed and configured, working PC out of the box:

MONITOR: BenQ XL2411Z 1ms GTG 144hz 24" 1920x1080


What I will keep from my current config:

MOUSE: Razer Abyssus 2014 1800dpi 500hz

MOUSEPAD: Razer Goliathus Speed Extended

KEYBOARD: Ozone Strike Mechanical Black Switches

HEADPHONES: Some Random in-ears headphones from Sennheiser

Same QuakeLive config (same sensitivity, same visuals, same everything), except with 1920x1080 screen's res instead of my 1024x768 res from my good old 17" Samsung SyncMaster 797MB CRT. And ofc 144hz instead of 100hz(with my current CRT).


My old setup:

HP laptop

CPU: Intel Core i5 3210M double-core at 2.5ghz up to 3.1ghz with turboboost, and HT

GPU: AMD/ATi Radeon 7670M 1GB of RAM


HDD: 500 Go 5400 RPM

SCREEN: 15.6" 40-60hz with massive input-lag :D

Windows 8


Currently I have my FPS set to 200 in QuakeLive and 100Hz CRT. For some reason on quite a lot of maps I can't get stable 200FPS even in 2v2. When playing 4v4 I play at 144FPS because my laptop can't handle stable 200fps, it's more like from 135 to 166fps. I have everything set at the lowest in my QL config.
1v1 is fine, I can get 200+FPS stable on 90% of the maps.

I hope that with my new config I can finally try games like Overwatch or Reflex in (very) good conditions. I guess that I'll finally get 250FPS stable in QL in ANY situations. That + 144Hz and larger monitor will finally make it much more comfortable to play for me :).
Expect me to hit 60% LG and 90% rail !!!!! :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

prophecy's 2v2 CA servers... (44 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 23:07 GMT, 16 November 2015 - iMsg
are amazing!

I have 45ms ping, it's located in DEU and... so many oldschool ra3 2v2 maps! Ofc some of them are bad but I can remember like 3-4 very good maps I used to play in 2004-2006. It's 2v2 only servers, which is nice, people can't callvote teamsize :D, it's locked to 2. And like I said the maps are great. Not like shit asylum or hellsgate, or even worst, campgrounds :D.
Reminds me the good old days and finally what I missed the most from ra3 (the maps) is kind of back.
Steam's workshop is good! I guess the servers admins (from team prophepy) had to pay some bucks to get the maps, but whenever you join the servers all you have to do is dl them :), it's free :).

So, people, just play Clan Arena the way it's meant to be played. Play it on maps that are designed for it. Forget your shit campgrounds (campgrounds is one of the best map for 2v2 TDM but for anything else it just sucks (decent for FFA tho)), hellsgate (this map is not a CA map, it's just some random map from the Q3A's single player when you had to face the bot klesk in 1v1 duel... lol.). Forget asylum (the 1st map that got implemented in QL back in 2008-2009 or something), this map is cancer really. I like trinity for 4v4 but asylum is just shit... period.
Why do I think camp/asy/hells are shit for CA ? Let me explain :

- campgrounds : the most campy rail only map. Also people tend to regroup at the bridge above the red armor location, which is just stupid, especially for 4v4, because 8 people on the bridge is just fucking retarded really, so random, rl spam only and pray to not fall down (but even if you do everything right to not falling down you still end up doing it, because like I said when you are 8 people on bridge it's almost like 16 players FFA on thunderstruck... doesn't make any sense). And why rail only ? Because without the items and because of the way the map is designed, in CA, in order to win, you have to play almost +back rail only. At least with the items you have to move around the map to get them, and sometimes you need to be offensive with lg or rockets to keep the control or just deal a lot of damage. But without the items, you don't have any goal, so you end up railing at long range and expecting people to get mad and ragequit :D.

- asylum : this map did not get much inspiration when it has been made. It's a very basic map, just a big boxe with way to much verticality. There are too much stairs, pillars, huge fucking retarded walls geometries at the "regroup zone", which make it rl spam only. In 4v4, just like campgrounds, people tend to regroup at a location where you have like 5cm≤ to fight, which becomes, there again, rl spam spam spam and pray to not fall down. And near the end of the round, when only 2-3 people are still alive because of luck, it becomes, just like campgrounds, a fucking +back endless rail fest.
And i'm pretty sure that if people wanted to play this map rail only it would be more effective than always regrouping at "upper".
In 2v2 it's not so retarded, because at least you have more space to move around, but like I said, there's no way to play it "normally" I mean if people were more clever, they would just +back rail at the beginning of each rounds. And also, the 2v2 positions at the regroup zone are still bad, too much lame stairs and pillars :). And the bridge is so fucking tight, impossible to deal against rockets.

- hellsgate : the "redux" version of hellsgate (called hellsgateredux) was so much better because it didn't have these retarded slopes and this fucking random void. Hellsgateredux was asymetrical, which made it more interesting to play than the normal hellsgate which is also very basic in its conception. And like I said, it's not a map meant to be played in CA, it's just a random Q3A single player map. You play it for fun vs the bot klesk when you play quake for the 1st time, that's all. It's not a real CA map, but people got used to it because of the lack of REAL CA maps (from RA3). And I didn't even mention those fucking pillars, there again, welcome rl spam and hide behind the pillars).

There is a lot of RA3 maps that are either LG heavy, RL heavy or Rail heavy, but at least they are well designed for it and make sense. I'm sick of playing non-CA maps in CA. I play quake 3 since 2002, so please, trust me when I say that :).

Okay, sry for this huge wall of text, but it had to be said :). And thanks a lot to the team prophecy (old school RA3 clan) for providing us such good servers.
Cya on them with my multiple fakenicks, maybe ;).

Annoying CSGO problems (24 comments)
Posted by clerictgm @ 09:04 GMT, 16 November 2015 - iMsg
Hello, guys! I want to talk about some really annoying CSGO problems.
I've played this game for ~2000 hrs. Previously played all CS games from 1.0 beta 5 and I love CS much (also as I love HL1).

Started as a fully noob and played for fun w/o any analysis, just has good reaction time and not a bad aim. Calibrated to Nova 4 for some reason. Have few duels (1x1 MM rules DE maps 128 tick) when I was Nova 4 with supremes/globals that I easily won (average supremes/GE).

Easily get GE in next 3 months (at this moment overall I've played ~6 months in GO).

And now I want to talk about things that makes me mad in CSGO:

1) Itís not a pro cyberdiscipline, it's not a cybersports. It is really-really forced to be a "cybersports".
Why? Too much random, and consequently less skill influence.
Look at this beautiful work, done by 3kliksphilip:

A) 1st shot and base inaccuracy of many weapons is ridiculous (AK47, for example has extremely high inaccuracy overall, even spraying is random if you know spray patter perfectly). This leads to ~750 units limit of 100% chance to get a headshot from AK47 while standing. Anything more than 750 is random even if you are shooting in a static target. It doesnít matter how sharp and perfect you aim is. Pray to the god of Random. This is silly and force you to spray in the body! Taps? FUG NO :D

B) This noobish thing with getting stopped/losing a lot of velocity when youíve god hit.

C) Imbalance of weapons/stupid weapons stats.
MP9 for example. Totally IMBA. Most accurate SMG, not bad damage, 857 RPM, and extremely high accuracy overall, especially while running, jumping and falling. At close ranges you can spray mid-air and easily hit headshots. It is so effective, you CAN get a GLOBAL using only MP9.
MAC10 is great too (very high running, mid-air accuracy).
Or tec9/fiveseven. For $500 you can easily oneshot enemies at close distances (with tec9ís running accuracy even at the full speed (240us)).
This is really funny when youíve got killed by a $500-1250 weapon, having a fullbuy and ~3K weapon in your hands. Even a lower skill player can kill you if heíd get lucky with random headshot..
And again, about accuracy of AK47. SG553/AUG has extremely sharp accuracy and can stable hit headshots from ~2000 units, while AK can only from 750. Why?
Also SG553/AUG are extremely stable while spraying because of low base inaccuracy. And it doesnít matter that SG has a bit worse spray pattern, it Is easier to spray (of course Iím talking about noscope shooting, scope on sg almost=cheat (reduced inaccuracy, reduced recoil, spray pattern is almost 2 times smaller + it can oneshot from any distance)).
Elites. WHAT? Improvements? This weapon is still a non-lethal shit.
M249Ö Even Negev can be used to kill someone(4phun). Why they added (not made them useful) M249 and Elites if they are so ineffective?

D) CROSSHAIRS are not centered:

E) Recoil is calculating on server, while decals calculating on client. This leads to really f**ed-up situations when you can even see blood sprays but hit is not registered and enemy get 0dmg.

F) Strange/fkdup reghit system. Sometimes perfect shots (static AWP shot in the center of the model) doesnít register. Sometimes you spray at the close range with AK and get 0 hits when you know you MUST get at least 3 hits. Or some missed Zeus shots from the range of knife stub in the center of the modelÖ
This is one of the reasons P90/smgs is so good. 50 clip + 857 RPM.
In the game, where AIM is everything reghit is a joke... :D

G) Netcode. What you see differs so much with what is actually going on on server and also differs with what spectator (dead teammate) see. 64 tickÖ

Kids, kids, kids. Angry kids. Angry Polish kids, angry German kids, angry Russian kids, angry %countryname% kids.
Flaming, teamkilling, rude griefing, blaming team, no respect to team and enemies even on GE.
Maybe Iím biased but I think that Q/UT/arena shooters communities are better. Oh wait.. you canít teamkill and blame team in this games :D

Amount of cheaters is just CRAZY in CSGO. According to the most conservative estimates (VACban stats + my experience) I think there are ~18% (100% no less than 10%) of cheaters that is extremely alot.
They getting banned and buying new accs for $2-4 on regular sale. And again. And again. Valve getting money, everything is great.

Itís so fun getting pre-fired in the head through whole long. Running AK47/Deag headshots. Or when someoneís reaction time is ~0.1-0.2 sec to spot you, aim the head and shot. And this is not like 1 time, itís stable through the whole game. I believe in luck but not so much.. Itís humanly impossible. Even if you are the best of the best. Average human reaction time is ~265ms and this is about SIMPLE ACTION like click. Not spot+aim(in the head)+click.

Also on cheats: this EBOLA OVERWATCH is silly. 16 tick demos, are you seriously? Every good shot looks like a crazy auto-aim 9000+ prefire.
You canít judge someone with 16-tick demos. This is not right.
To make OW works like OW you need:
1) FULL Actual GOTV demos
2) With voice/textchat access.
At least.

Well, maybe there are more problems and issues, Iím tired to type :)
Sorry for too much expression :)

Fallout 4: My Biased Impressions (16 comments)
Posted by LCANT @ 20:37 GMT, 15 November 2015 - iMsg
I played Fallout 3 to the end. I also regularly commit to stupid acts that I later realize were unnecessary, typically because I'm not aware of some obvious relevant information that would better inform my decision-making process. These are facts from my life. Here are some other facts about me:

1. I played Fallout 2 until I found the power armor and the challenge dissipated. I own Fallout and Fallout Tactics. I have not played them.
2. I played Fallout: New Vegas for 2-3 weeks that I can remember, and stopped for some unremarkable reason.

With every new game I play, there is a process of familiarization. Some games don't pass this stage for me, such as Assassin's Creed, where the process of familiarization wasn't worth the promise of experience, and others do. Fallout 2 and 3 passed, as has Fallout 4.

My initial response to Fallout 4 can be summed up as "underwhelmed trepidation".

tl;dr me not feeling it and me worried not change!!

The introductory sequence is bland, vague, and, appreciably, over quickly. The introduction left me with one serious question: what is the feasibility of cryogenically preserving a medically unprepared infant?


An SJW white-apologist uses Fallout 4's character builder.

Introducing my character, Tyryl:



Herein lies a description of the gameplay mechanics for Fallout 4.

I just realized that I don't care about this anymore.

I like Fallout 4. Here is a picture of a two-headed cow on a roof:

Oh, Bethesda. ;)

I killed 10 super mutants from .25 miles away using a scoped rifle that I've refined with leftover bits of toasters and desk fans. With the difficulty at the maximum setting, enemy grenades are launched with nearly perfect accuracy and kill me in one hit. Each fight becomes a risk assessment with a cost-benefit analysis, unless surprised. Unplanned fights can result in one-hit deaths, but can oten be avoided with careful movement, scouting, and a bit of luck.

With the radio off and the music level set to 0, the world begins to come alive. Conversations in towns become more audible, and are amusing for their melodramatic delivery and contents (I entered a tavern and witnessed a 5 minute long exchange between three characters, each with distinct personalities, it was appreciably hilariously absurd). Trees and brush slightly sway as the wind gently whispers through the wasteland. Super mutants argue the finer points of egotism versus egalitarianism, with veiled promises of future civil strife.

Many in-game actions have consequences in unexpected places. I killed a raider in a cave, and found notes about her sister having been kidnapped. 20 hours later, I killed another raider in another area, and found notes about having captured the previous raider's sister, and at the bottom of the list a note about the raider I killed being killed by me. To describe it this way is an injustice. This small detail brought a sense of connection and vitality within the game world, and forces me to consider the implications of my choices.

The graphics are much more consistent and pleasant than previous Fallout games, though they begin to break down at the scale of furniture and smaller details. Pull-rings and handles are dull and seemingly unaffected by lighting, and textures can become sloppily applied and somewhat distorted. Terrain mostly escapes issues with distortion, though rubble and rocks do not assume their expected forms upon closer inspection.

A lot has been done to change and add to the game, and my experience so far is that the core elements of the previous games is maintained and sometimes streamlined or improved, with new features to play with that aren't necessarily enjoyable, but thankfully also aren't necessary. Most notably is the town building 'workshop' mode, which I guess was an attempt to help sell the game to unmarried accountants and middle-level managers.

My experience so far is that the Fallout 4 world is dynamic and varied, with much less thematic repetition than the previous games. There have been many inconsequential-yet-entertaining discoveries, such as a stuffed bear wearing a yellow fedora perched atop a hot plate hidden away in a dark corner of an automobile factory, that contribute to maintaining the desire to explore the world, and with the graphics so greatly improved, exploration is much more visibly pleasant and consistent experience.

Posted by xou @ 15:41 GMT, 15 November 2015 - iMsg
The fifth round of the TDM League is starting on Sunday evening.

In the first division, Deliberate Murder are facing POXUI at 20:00 GMT, but they used wildcard. Earlier this week, POXUI failed to align 4 players for their match against Incoming Murderes and were given a default loss.

Next weeks will be the catch-up round, for all the matches which were wildcarded (2 in div1, 4 in div2 and 2 in div3).

All the results of the previous matches are available. Also we have some VODs and spec demos.

You can now use the HoQ gametype factories on your dedicated servers (workshop.txt) for the proper leagues' settings. All the players are now required to enter their Steam ID on the HoQ website, you can read more about it.

"weapon #; +attack; wait; weapprev"? (7 comments)
Posted by QuakErDooM @ 11:44 GMT, 15 November 2015 - iMsg
Excuse me but I'm quite noobish at this, is there a command which will switch me to a weapon to fire then switch back to the previous weapon after releasing the mouse button? I know this was around in Threewave and I'd like to try it in Quake Live. And what is the command to enable instant weapon switching like in CPMA?

Endgame competative Destiny... (16 comments)
Posted by @ 21:05 GMT, 14 November 2015 - iMsg surprisingly good, for a console shooter. Great range of playstyles available, without being too broad to balance, and without too much of the usual OHK aim-assist bullshit that comes with the platform.

Something worth checking out, if you're picking up one of the Sony/Microsoft machines this Christmas.

Came for the story, stayed for the PvP. Wasn't expecting that at all.

mouse changes confusedddddddd (17 comments)
Posted by marissa @ 02:45 GMT, 14 November 2015 - iMsg
old settings:
zowie ec2 evo 500hz polling rate with true calculated dpi of 480

sens: 3.325
accel: 0.34453125
in_mouse: -1
r_mode 15
fov: 103
displayrefresh: 120
accelstyle 0
m_accel .1
acceloffset: 0
accelpower: 2

new settings g400s mouse 1000hz polling 400 cpi
cpi: 400
sens: 3.99??
accel: 0.496125???
in_mouse: -1
r_mode 23
fov: 103
displayrefresh: 144
accelstyle 0
m_accel .1
acceloffset: 0
accelpower: 2

My big question after using these websites to figure it out:

My problem is it has no right feeling at all. How does r_mode going from 15 to 23 impact my settings? Can i calculate everything by how r_mode impacts?

i use -1 because it worked great for me but people are telling me to do 2 for in mouse but i used -1 because rapha did and got used to it.

-1 vs 2 benefits pros cons?

Would appreciate the help on these questions im so lost thanks!!!!

Quick 5v5 CTF Draft Cup part 2 (10 comments)
Posted by esdf @ 19:02 GMT, 13 November 2015 - iMsg
Since it's got pretty late last friday with draft being only halfway through, we've decided to postpone the rest of the cup for this friday. Therefore tonight, in 1 hour, Nov 11, 2015 @ 21:00 CET, the draft continues from WB semis and R3 LB. It's possible that we will need some subs so if you want to play, join #qldrafts and pm esdf.

The mousepad is still in play and by unanymous decision we've decided to award South Africa fny with a 1 month QL pro token for his immeasurable contribution to the last draft which made him an undisputed mvp.

Quakelive Crashes (6 comments)
Posted by butchji @ 17:49 GMT, 13 November 2015 - iMsg
"So since the Quakelive switch to steam my game crashes constantly. Like every one to three matches. It just freezes and then I have to kill the process in the task manager. I asked someone what the message was when I dropped and he said "failed to authenticate with steam err.6"
I don't have this problem with any other game with steam.
Anyone else have this problem? What can I do?
Thanks in advance."

So the game still crashes. doesn't seem to care and I haven't seen any solutions eventhough several players have this problem.

Looking for Let's Players (16 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 14:59 GMT, 13 November 2015 - iMsg
Hello folks,

I'm currently in the process of writing an essay in which I'm looking to widen my horizons by conducting a few interviews. I have started making a list of potential interviews I could make with various people around the world of e-sport : players, streamers, platform managers, etc.

I'm currently looking for Let's Players to interview so that I can have a relevant sample of people who gravitate around the sphere of e-sport. If you are yourself a Let's Player or know someone who would agree to spend 30ish minutes with me answering to some questions to help me with my essay (that'd happen before december is upon us preferably), I'd really appreciate. I would obviously prefer finding a Let's Player who earns a relatively decent amount of money by doing those Let's Plays but even amateurs propositions are welcome as every profile is different and potentially interesting.

Lemme know :).

So, I want to play Q3 again and don't know what to play. I live in Russia, so what's better?
CPMA? QL(steam only now)?
Also I've heard about some PQL (turbo?), is it OK?

I love CPMA, but is it still alive? What about EU/RU servers and players?

I have the Logitech G303. Love it. Best sensor I have ever used. The form though is way to small for my hand though. I get cramps in my hand after one hour of gaming.

It has been a while since I got it though. Has there been a better sensor released? Has there been a bigger mouse released?

LightningGun Poll (7dmg vs 6dmg etc) (88 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 20:10 GMT, 12 November 2015 - iMsg
So it's been quite some time now that the LG has been nerfed from 7 to 6dmg and from 200 to 150 max ammos.

I think that we now experienced enough of it to get a pretty solid opinion about what could be (or what are) the ideal LG settings.

I think that overall most people are satisfied by the LG nerf, altho I'm not 100% sure, that's why I wanted to make a Poll about it to clarify the situation.

So, people, take <1min of your time to participate to the poll from the link below:

Scheduled: 20:00 GMT, 12 November 2015 to 21:00 GMT, 12 November 2015
Schedule: Passed

Fourth round of CA cup will be played tonight.

So far Europe insta coma is major contender on winning first division, with Europe Flick of da Wrist coming close second. In third and fourth division three teams also shine, it is Europe Loaded/Gunz and Denmark nubz / Italy Italian Death Squad 3 respectively, while second division doesn't have one team that stands up so far, and could prove to be most interesting one.

There are some major changes in cup settings, you can read more about it below.
