Holding mouse on an angle? (9 comments)
Posted by ratman1337 @ 00:01 CDT, 31 October 2014 - iMsg
Will it affect my aim if I hold my mouse on an angle. For example imagine your arm and wrist completely straight out infront of you but your mouse is slightly tilted to an angle. My mouse is titled like this in my hand / but not to such a degree. It just feels way more stable and relaxing like this but I'm wondering it it could affect my aim and consistency and wondering if I should change.

New South American QW servers (13 comments)
Posted by Ċke Vader @ 16:50 CDT, 30 October 2014 - iMsg
A while back the QuakeWorld players Portugal Mushi and Australia Dirtbox initiated a quite ambitious project to increase the amount of QuakeWorld servers in the world. Not only did they think there should be more of them, but they have also done certain investigations as to whether there are specific locations that are particularly advantageous with regards to routing, so players in these areas can take full advantage of the re-routing feature QWfwd available in QuakeWorld. In the best cases, this can decrease the ping not only within the community, but also bridge the gap between two communities.

One example has been the start-up of some North American servers that decreased the ping to Europe. Another important recent addition, with help from United States of America Claw, is a bunch of servers located in South America. These babies bring down the ping below 50ms between Chile Chile, Argentina Argentina and Brazil Brazil. This should be a good step to once again unite the South American players on the same battle grounds. If you're from this area, then make sure to try them out!

another abyssus 2014 thread (28 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 10:26 CDT, 29 October 2014 - iMsg
Got mine today.

- Shape is very good
- Build quality is better than on the old abyssus
- Mouse is sexy
- My abyssus 2014 had firmware up to date out of the box
- 1800dpi 500hz, perfect
- No synapse/drivers

Would I recommend it ? Yes, BUT, if you want 1000hz usb polling rate, forget this mouse, because it doesn't work as good at 1000hz than at 500hz (I tried it myself, mouse got some weird behavior at 1000hz (1000hz isn't stable also), but 500 is perfect), and if you don't mind playing with medium dpi setting (1800). I'm using 1800dpi on all my razer mice so in my case it's perfect :).

I'm a fan of razer. I'm a bit ashamed but well, doesn't matter :D <3 razer.

just thought I'd share a bit of info, if you're hosting a server and it comes up on the top to say your server is live but still actually loading, quit out of the client with alt + f4 so you don't have to hit the abort key and booom you can host servers with the current broken state of quakelive.

League of Legends=Stereotypical Bellends (36 comments)
Posted by ShadyVoltaire @ 18:53 CDT, 28 October 2014 - iMsg
NB: I wanted the title to be "League of Legend Stereotypically Asinine as Usual)" but title limit on characters prevented me, hence the R-bomb.

Hi friends) I just came by briefly as I noticed that some random unlisted Youtube video of mine suddenly spiked by like 6k views. It had been previously embedded here on ESR, but that was months ago and wasn't watched much. Stay a while and listen! For I am about to unveil the developments of the past hour or so.

It was a video from the summer of KaceyTron (appendicies below) from over the summer. Given the current rage and overheating in regards to all that gamergate* shite

* Won't bore you with too much details but here's a paragraph-long summary: Jew Lizards with tits hiding behind the labels of feminism to veil them from being called out on "journalistic ineptitude" having a contest with raged teenage /b/tards high off mountain dew and RapeSection porn about who can be the worst human being on the internet. It's a tie so far!

Anyways, given the circumstances and the degeneracy of both sides of this pseudo-argument, you can see how one might get cautious about an unlisted video gathering 6000 views quite fast and out of nowhere. One would hate to get mixed up with degeneracy of either side's extremeties, especially considering the gamergate outrage is uncalled for, immature and asinine; meanwhile Zoey Quinn makes that guy from Ocean Marketing (google if needed) seem honest and stable, and Anita Sarkessian, despite claiming to be an advocate for change, is not very good at providing objective explanations for the subjects she attempts to cover. Obviously those girls do not deserve the backlash they got (including death threats), but there is so much dishonesty and sensationalism coming from everywhere that it's hard to contextualise the whole thing AND remain objective and still care. But I digress.

Especially considering the whole gamergate side-story was merely a red herring, and you, dear TUPOY(AYA) GANDON(PIZDA) READING THIS have fell right for it! For after unsuccessful google searches and brief twitter/reddit sweeps to find the source of the leak. I was able to finally place the pieces together with the help of YouTube analytics, which notified that the spike hit instantly on the 13th of October. What does this all have to do with League of Retards?

Here's an ESR topic discussing the sale of Mr Florin's Twitch website
Here's a page from a LoL-centric 9gag clone ("LoR-only 9fag clone" sounds like recursive shit by the way. Smelly, Ebola-infected shit from a Down's syndrome sufferer with additional gastro-instestinal disorders).

2 more mouse clicks have established that the copy+paster's main hobbies (apart from out-of-context third-party content recycling/theft) include "playing LoL", having an anti-boner for that chick because inferior League brain cannot grasp the concept of satire and "worshipping the pope" (RIP PAPIEZ [*] YOU ARE MEN!!!). Considering donations have been asked for lesser reasons than DEFENDING THE HONOUR OF ESR (such as "sup guys plx send me accross an ocean for make benefit of glorious nation of QukeLife it will totally worth it for me AND YOU ALL BY PROXY AS WELL"), we start a whip-round to send someone to Poland and for a stat-track M9 Bayonet IRL so we can trace this marcin and CUT OFF HIS XYN (CHUJ). That'll learn him. Yeeep. *spits on floor*

Meanwhile, as a pre-emptive attempt at damage control, I shall change the title of the unlisted youtube video from "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA TUPAYA PIZDA*))))" (dumb cunt in .RU) to "This video is taken out of context, the chick is being facetious, League of Retards is shit and "marcin" can eat a dick". I really don't want to be mistakenly associated with those gamergate retards. Or those degenerates playing Valve/Riot Cocoroach Simulator: Down Syndrome Edition (DotA 2 being the "Pro edition") to keep watching my randomly recorded stream video I only put on youtube during the summer to show aids and rehepapp.

And that concludes our ad-hoc journey into the MOZG of ShadyVoltaire. Thank you Atlanta, you've been a wonderful audience. GOODNIGHT!

Democall for a movie (3 comments)
Posted by wntt @ 17:30 CDT, 28 October 2014 - iMsg
Hello, esreality.

I thought I might give another try and create one more quakelive fragmovie.
fearZZz recently stopped playing actively(I have some sick stuff from him though), so, I thought I'll try to ask you guys for demos.

I don't have much to show currently coz there is nothing rly to work with: Poster,

So, without further ado, if you want to be the part of the movie and If you had any interest in my prev works(moopoint, singularity),
and don't consider them nauseating,
send demos to: with attached zip archive, or w/e, just make it comfortable to browse.
Please make sure to name demos as following: nickname_map_timing_shortdescription (e.g. hakuna_purgatory_15-10_triple_rail_kill)
I'm mainly looking for unique and hot looking duel/tdm/ctf actions.
Please don't waste both of our times sending me some random ca stuff.

Don't be huffy if your demos won't make it to the final fragmovie, some frags could just not match the flow/pace I'll choose.

Feel free to ask any questions regarding fragmovie, I will be glad to answer them.
Thank you for your attention.

What people don't realize (160 comments)
Posted by fisT @ 11:42 CDT, 28 October 2014 - iMsg
This might be pretty obvious to some, but is it just me or do the few people that hear about quake, and try it out all simply don't encounter or realize as a thing is the movement mechanic in Quake.

When quake launched on steam we had a bunch of new people brawling with each other thinking "okay yay, jumping around shooting stuff" which is fun for only so long in any game. Then they leave.

100% of the people I've talked to that tried quake and stopped shortly thereafter because it was "ok" never even considered trying to strafe/circlejump. I don't know about you guys but I can spend hours just flying around the map alone while waiting for players all the while enjoying myself profoundly. The movement in Quake is GREAT. Without it i bet none of us would be playing it.

So what? My point is that what in my opinion is the best part in the Quake experience is the great movement being the foundation of everything. And the fact that people who try the game never learn this mechanic. Auto bunnyhopping doesn't solve it even close since it isnt fun. I BET at least 90% of people who ever played quake and learned the movement think quake is one of the best games ever made.

New players have no indication of strafejumping even being a thing and some half assed tutorial with basically no stimulation or is even easily noticeable just isn't enough for people to understand.

It's hard to compare this problem with other games since very few games have a basic mechanic which is relatively difficult to learn but a lack of ability to do it makes the game not worth playing. CS, for instance has no such thing.

This may be a bit of a ramble at this point and a pointless one at that, but if they ever make a new quake the single most important thing is to make a big deal out of the movement so that its an obvious and interesting first thing to learn when firing up Quake for the first time. Screw auto-bunnyhop, that only further distances the best mechanic in the game from the players.

Does anybody agree with any of what I'm saying?

If so, what the hell would be a good solution. This is important for other games too, look at Reflex for instance. If people dont realize how big of a deal the movement is they'll just move like in CoD. That's what the steamers do in quake. Except with more jumping.

Quake 1 (QW) Clan Arena Tournament ! (5 comments)
Posted by clawunf @ 10:29 CDT, 28 October 2014 - iMsg
Hi guys, I want to announce the upcoming 3v3 Clan Arena International Tournament in Quake1 (Quakeworld). This is the 3rd season of this prestige league and the best thing about it is that you get to play against teams from South America (Chile, Brazil, Argentina), North American Teams (USA/Canada) and of course from Europe. Why Quakeworld? Well, while it is true that the community in Quakeworld diminishes every year by a few players, there is still a decent size community that supports the game and leagues. Also, this tournament is clan arena, so if you are new to Quake and don't want to get pummeled every time you spawn, this might be a good way to learn the ropes and maybe venture into Deathmatch later on. In Clan Arena you start off with full armor and health (200armor,100health) and you start with all the weapons. Your team has to go out and kill the other team and when you do, you win that round, best of 9 wins the series, you play 4 series in total. Also the great thing about Quakeworld as compared to other games, is that when you play internationally ping is tolerable because modern servers now have antilag, which means that you can use lightning gun and boomstick as if you had low ping and this makes matches possible against teams/players that have higher ping. Also, the game is easy to download, all you have to do is go to and download/install and that is it, nothing more, everything else you need is included. Our tournament consists of 6 maps. A2 (Atlantis), DM2, DM3, q1edge (quake2 map), q3dm6qw (Campgrounds-Quake3/Qlive Map), and q1_q3dm13 (Lost World-Quake3/Quakelive Map). We also are planning to have the map from quakelive called Almost Lost in there, just polishing up some spawn bugs. If you are interested, stop by irc at and join #qwca
Also visit the official tournament page at
and you can email me for any extra information at

Registration is underway, and we will begin to have games probably in a week.

Some duels with live commentary (31 comments)
Posted by Memento_Mori @ 13:44 CDT, 26 October 2014 - iMsg

I made two videos of a few duels I played today. The format is different from previous videos I made, as I really kept the editing to zero (just recorded and uploaded). But the nice thing - I believe - is that you see exactly what I think at the very moment.

The sound quality (of the microphone) is pretty bad, and you can hear the loud keyboard. It's generally bad, except for when you can hear some dodging madness.

My hope is that some people find this useful somehow.

Hi guys! I have little problem with Abyssus because it jitters on QPad CT and Nostromo F1. On Nostromo there is jitter almost all time. On QPad CT, i think jitter is caused by colorful front of pad. I don't even have money for new pad, which pad should be good?

And, as i heard, there shouldn't be really much jitter on Abysuss 2014, should i return it, or it's normal like i guess?

Abyssus 2014, questions : (20 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 15:40 CDT, 25 October 2014 - iMsg
What are the default plug & play settings with the abyssus 2014 ? I guess 1800dpi 1000hz ? (or maybe 500hz?)

Does synapse 2.0 work the same than with the deathadder 2013/ krait 2013 ? Which means installing synapse, configuring your settings (would be 1800dpi 1000hz in my case) and then uninstalling it, and the onboard memory of the mouse remembers your settings even after uninstall.

Does the mouse even has 1800dpi step ? I guess yes considering that it's a razer sensor and the same as in the old abyssus.

So, to summarize, I want to play at 1800dpi 1000hz and installing then uninstalling synapse after I configured these settings, will it be possible ?

And last question, will I need firmware update manually or does it update it automatically with synapse ? If I have to do it manually, where to find the download link of the firmware update ?

r u an esr noob - demiurge, 2014

i left off around enter: general manager. i'm gonna get a little bit informal now, because.

i'm lazy.

but, i'm a hard worker. hard workers have to be hard workers, because they have trouble keeping up with the people who are good at what they do. this is an adaptation required for the slow thinking incompetent. though we'll fail repeatedly, and though we'll spend hours to the competents' seconds understanding a problem, and then hours more devising a solution, those around us will see a dedication and commitment to solving a problem that is, at the very least, and much like watching the friend-zoned and neck-bearded loveless loser struggle to maintain asexual relations with his best friend slash high school love interest, a dedication and commitment to solving a problem that is admirable for its self-sacrifice and expression of loyalty to achievement in the face of insurmountable odds. it is a somewhat tragic irony, watching the loser aspire to achievement, as watching a fingerless amputee in a back brace attempt to bend down to tie his shoes.

there's a hope, in my approach to work, that others can see my desire to achieve something good, but in my years of striving for achievement i have also begun to understood the eventual necessity of mumbling 'fuck it', and then closing whatever deal it is i've struck, be it an issue in an issue tracker that may not meet my personal expectations for quality, or a car sale in which i'm sure there are better terms and agreements that can be made.

it's trite and common, and perhaps years ago i would reject it for being so, and then perhaps spend hours or days or weeks working against it, like stacking perfectly spherical and frictionless marbles. only now can i see that, without boundaries, the marbles simply spread. the achievement of perfection requires boundaries that, unfortunately, in social circumstances, are determined by an assortment of personalities, and only become exposed through experimental communications, as the circling and seeking tendrils of a vine slowly spinning until finding a limb or trunk upon which to attach itself, so we thrust our desires through the shared airs of collaboration, a mechanical process of establishing structure for the development of social conceptual frameworks.

it's trite and common, but if it were art, i could establish my own boundaries, or lack thereof, and allow whatever number of marbles my mind can produce to spread upon my imagination's endless tabletop, the inept and stubby fingers of my self-efficacy picking and dropping and flicking them against and away from each other, the calloused blade of its palm sweeping them together into crashing and clinking glass waves, to mingle and separate in forms both expressing meaning through their intended positions, and celebrating meaninglessness in their circumstantial necessity, in the unwieldiness of their natures.

it isn't art, though, and through years of striking my head and will against the boundaries of others in an attempt to expose those around me to the beauty and joy of unencumbered creativity, of the sandbox playfulness, of the carnal pleasure in the flinging of what to stick wherever what may, and the further entertainment of interpreting what where stuck as whatever what's where may be, and how where what went defines what what was and will be, and so on, through years of striking my head and will against the boundaries of others i have come to understand that achievement requires hard work and boundaries, and social achievement requires accepting that the boundaries of others are sometimes insurmountably grand and well-fortified. sometimes it requires less energy to realize the achievement of an undesirable goal and move on to a new opportunity. it's just the way things are. not every pitch is going to be a home run, not every pitch should be swung at, sometimes it's necessary to bunt.

so, i've been a car salesman (i styled myself as a 'purchasing advisor', a bit of fluffy bullshit to invent a concept of trustworthiness in the minds of customers whose conception of sales, and very rightly, was defensive and paranoid) working within the accepted boundaries defined by those who, in their grey-haired experience and their social naivety, understand the subtleties of sales boundaries required for success that they've accumulated over years of successes and failures, but expect those without their experiences to immediately or intuitively grasp what they've had the unappreciated resource of time to develop a sense for.

this is a common problem, and we learn to deal with and accept it as a rite of passage in the ceremonial hazing we call 'life'. the big boys torment the little boys, and the little boys cry until they learn that crying only encourages the torment, and they grow to torment those younger than them, to play with and push the buttons that expose them to the beautiful world of social manipulation, until either their curiosities are sated or priorities shift or they're isolated from society due to their lack of tact.

in this process, we can learn and refine our senses of empathy, our ability apply our understanding of the requirements for successful realization of our desires and the experiences over time necessary to develop such self-efficacy toward an understanding of how others must labor for their own positions. through this empathy we establish a telescope through which we gaze at the stars of the lives of others, we develop a capacity for spectral analysis that gives us the building blocks of their successes and failures, we invent a science of personal progress through social perception.

some will never develop the microscope, the telescope, the spectroscope, or whatever other tools may exist. they will be satisfied by the self-centric social universe in which all others orbit the anchor of their personal development. these people cannot be reasoned with, and any attempt to illustrate the true relative nature of their positions will result in a persecution matching that of the religiously fervorous catholics patiently demonstrating their cases to the roman inquisition.

general manager, he was a socially unempathetic heliocentricist, and through my naively ignorant and obtusely unawares expressions of social relativity i had, most unfortunately, become a target for his ire. i had cast my carefully crafted probes into the space around the earth of his life's experiences, and as my rovers descended upon its rocky surface he launched his barbaric military defenses to chip away at delicate sensors with blunt rock hammers and sling-shotted pebbles.

what would you do, confronted by such a violent response to attempts at establishing lines of mutually beneficial communciation?

I've played Halo:CE since its release on xbox. I bought it on PC when my xbox fried and I've been playing it on PC since 2003. Nearly 11 years have gone by and I'm sad to say I think I like it better on the PC and its painful to hear that the Master Chief Collection will not be released on PC :(

I know a lot of you guys have held on to quake the same way over the past decade and a half (or longer), and seen a shitload of people come and go. this is the same feeling, just a different game. although halo was not my first FPS game, it WAS the first one i got addicted to.

sorry to have to say it but i think i might have to get an xbox just to play with a large player base again :<

heres a video from 2 hours and some change just me playing halo drunk and some half ass editing

steelseries kinzu v3 (11 comments)

really comfy mouse with same shape youll expect of a kinzu.

no 400 dpi option can only get 500 (increments of 250)

i use a low sens of 2@400 and 1.6@500 (CS:GO) and after dming for a bit i have now realized there is quite a bit of negative accel. no way i could personally use this mouse but perhaps it would work out for a higher sens player.

its an okay mouse if you dont mind the poor accel issues but it just feels like to me steelseries will never make a perfect mouse... they will always have some issue that keeps me away.

Fuck Steam release!!! (70 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 08:29 CDT, 24 October 2014 - iMsg
Since the steam release, the Argentinan servers dont appear 90% of the time in the QL match browser. Also the chat doesnt always work, showing 0 contacts. You can still do a /connect ip:port so the actual servers are online and working ok, unless the chat isnt working then it stays on awaiting challenge/auth, its like the auth server is so bugged or overloaded that sometimes it just wont work. Ofc most players stopped playing cause they dont see any server on the server list so they think its down, also not everybody is fan enough to try more than 50 ports to find a suitable game in the mod/map you want, cause customs servers arent working. Its like going back to the stone age... Most of those servers are bugged also with the Sarge model autochange, god i hate that bug, and the random kicking bug at the start of matches. This is a clusterfuck of epic proportions. Its incredible how much we love this game to keep playing with all these problems.

I chatted with sponge about this on irc some days ago, he told me its a problem of the connections "down there", funny it worked perfectly till the steam update, and all the other games that are hosted on that datacenter and goes through the same cable dont have any issues. I think hes either lying or clueless because as i said everything else is working ok on the dataserver. I know a lot of pro subscribers that only play on those servers and are mad as hell, this is so crazy they release something to grow but instead they generate serious disappointment. Im so disappointed that for the first time im starting to play quakeworld, because lets be honest qw is uber hardcore and has that nostalgia feeling, also the high res textures are nice. And the best part i dont depend on mediocre staff.

DFWC is the most important event in the Quake3 DeFRaG world. Players from around the world will meet again to find out who is really the best. They will have to test their strafing and weapon skills on 8 maps of different difficulty level during 9 weeks. All these maps are new, created specifically for DFWC by the best mappers of our community.

Everyone can challenge himself in one of the two physics – VQ3 (Vanilla Quake 3 – similar to the current competitive Quake Live) or CPM (Challenge ProMode – similar to Quake Live’s PQL).

How can you detect a hack? (26 comments)
Posted by J3ck @ 07:21 CDT, 23 October 2014 - iMsg
I know this thread has been brought up before, but I don't see a search function on this forum so forgive me for being a little redundant.

I was playing a guy last night, not going to name him, but 5 minutes into the game he had a 60% LG acc on me. OK I get it sometimes people get lucky and such, but I've never even seen the pros hit with that high of an acc consistently into a game.

So my question is how can you even spot these 'aimbots'? How do they work? If he truly had an aimbot on would his LG been 100%? Even if I'm am suspicious of him hacking how would I get a video of it from his POV? I know I'm supposed to send it to support@quakelive, but it just seems futile unless I somehow had a buddy in there capturing it from his POV in a duel right?

Also, I went on his profile and noticed that he started his account in May of this year and is already 1630 ELO in duels... Wtf? That just seems off to me as well.

TOXIKK NEW VIDEO "The Movement Model" (37 comments)
Posted by quad_ @ 05:57 CDT, 23 October 2014 - iMsg
Reakktor Studios released a new video of showing some Basic and "Advanced" movement in the upcoming game Toxikk. The movement is definitely something we've seen before but it looks they are moving in the right direction. One thing i miss in it though is Strafe jumping or Bunny hopping, but the basic running seems really fast and maybe that'll cover up for it. Game looks really good though. I want to hear some of your thoughts on it.

3366 is quite over hyped (269 comments)
Posted by MaximilianKohler @ 05:56 CDT, 22 October 2014 - iMsg
I just wanted to make this post because I've seen people in BST's threads singing the praises of the 3366. I expected more out of a competitive gaming site.

I reviewed the mouse here: along with most other 3310 mice.

I've used a ton of mice over the past 10 years. Almost all non-MLT04 mice have some kind of "smoothing" feel (which is likely caused by a few different factors such as input lag/click latency, and artificial processing of mouse movement) to them. The 3366 has it too, just maybe to a slightly less degree than it's most recent predecessors.

However, the KPM had the least and felt significantly more precise, and snappy.

EDIT: wow... I feel like I'm talking to a bunch of people trying to sell mice rather than fellow competitive gamers...

I can't believe how many people on here don't know about this... I know I've seen it talked about on this site.

Brand new Logitech MX518, HELP! (12 comments)
Posted by Lan-Di @ 12:27 CDT, 21 October 2014 - iMsg

So about a week ago the right click of my MX518 (2nd gen) died. I refuse to buy anything different then a MX518, for me its the ultimate gaming mouse.

So i went online and found a few so called 'brand new, but in bulk packaging' MX518's on eBay. I bought one but for some reason it feels different, smaller. I'm guessing this guy just rebuilds G400's or something like that, buttons are also black instead of red. Then i bought a used MX518 (1st gen) but since its used the buttons don't click at their best. I tried cleaning it but it doesn't help.

So my question is, can someone help me find a REAL brand new MX518 or sell me one if you have one, both 1st and 2nd gen are fine (preferably 2nd gen since I'm more used to it.)

(left) 2nd gen MX518 = up to 1800DPI
(right) 1st gen MX518 = up to 1600DPI

plazma interview by Esportactu (46 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 08:29 CDT, 21 October 2014 - iMsg
Here we go again with an interview of Norway Kenneth "plazma" Aulie (which was done some time ago, but we were unable to release it sooner due to some busy schedule), the popular Norwegian QuakeLive player and movie-maker, unfortunately eliminated in the first group stage of the 125 FPS October league.

In this interview, we asked plazma about his settings, his carreer, his plans as a player, what he thinks about other modes, etc. As usual, you'll find a link to plazma's config (which is from DHW13).

Here is an extract of the interview:
France Esportactu: How would you qualify your gamestyle ? Has it been influenced by other Quake Live players ?

Norway plazma: Stupid, rash, railonly and idiotic. I think it was fazz who said that I could be a really good player, but I have adhd and downssyndrome (It means I am not calm, and I dont think enough. Plus that I'm not very smart. I'm dumb, in fact. :p). I'm not very clever? As far as influences, I don't know. I can't copy what Cypher, rapha and those guys do, but they are fantastic to watch [...].

More on esportactu
We'll do more interview in the future if players are okay with it. Play more Quake !

How to keep updated

The best place is the facebook page, which I will be updating from now on:


The Ninox website:

And of course this thread, but it is harder to keep track of. There is also a problem with me advertising the pre-orders on this thread - ESR doesn't encourage self-promotion of products. So to keep track of Ninox products, in the fullest way possible, its best to use facebook ("Like" the page with full updates).

Coming soon

What about the "Velocity" mouse and the A3050 sensor?

At the moment both of these are on hold. The decisions were made because:
- The A3050 is not worth the small saving over the A3090 because its simply not as good.
- The Velocity shell, while nice, is OEM, and I would prefer to move away from OEM shells ASAP, simply because they aren't as stylish or as customisable as I would like the future products to be.

I heard you can modify the WMO to use the Aurora PCB, is there more information about this?
Yes, you can do that. It does void the warranty and it isn't officially supported, its more something that I personally found and shared. I will post a video guide when I get a new rotary tool. Overall its a fairly easy modification to do, there are no special skills needed (like soldering), just some grinding away of plastic and some application of glue/putty.
Update: I found the tool! So I made another one and recorded it:

players can select from a couple or more different characters from each series. the maps are populated with weapons relative to each player's deathmatch universe. i don't really know anything about any other deathmatch games, but i guess shotgun from quake and shotgun from doom would spawn in the same spot, then rail from quake and shock gun thing from ut spawn in same spot.

movement system is determined by character selection. quake has strafe jumping, ut has dodge stuff, etc.

this will give a larger audience of deathmatch games a good reason to pick one game to play.

WTF IS WITH THESE LAG SPIKES!?!?! (29 comments)
Posted by J3ck @ 17:47 CDT, 20 October 2014 - iMsg
Is anyone else experiencing this?? My ping will be 30 but as I'm playing if I engage in a fight the ole "connection interrupted" starts popping up like crazy and I'm just getting insane lag spikes... I tried going in a server alone with the lagometer up and I'd get spikes but the ping would still remain at 30 ping. WTF is this? This literally has killed this game for me because it's impossible to time items or just plain fight players when I'm skipping all over the fucking place.

Any suggestions I could try?

James and Callisto are already in the game, but I'd love to see the rest of these wackos return.
Especially Gaunt. "Your ass is mine!"

And maybe Fritzkrieg and Pi.

I know this addition is highly unlikely, but I'm not about to justify this gratuitous nostalgia thread to you people!

My Experience in Car Sales (45 comments)
Posted by brandan @ 16:00 CDT, 18 October 2014 - iMsg
Ask people if they'd consider a job in car sales, and most people would respond "no, I just don't have the right personality for it." That's the wrong answer, obviously, because in their negative affirmation they've actually just considered a job in car sales, then dismissed it, but I'm avoiding the point: most people don't see themselves as salespeople. I was, and still am, one such person.

Initially, I felt as though I wouldn't ever want to be such a pushy and persistent sort of person. Salesmen all seem gimmicky and shady, and even those who are likeable have a necessary bias to convince you to give them money. The fragility of relationships established between buyer and seller is never far from mind, like two vagrants, one possessing firewood and a lit fire and the other the fresh carcass of a day's hunt, calling out to each other from across a river, the surface recently frozen, neither willing to cross for fear of drowning, but both desiring to establish the trust necessary to generate a mutually beneficial transaction of the resources necessary to sustain their lives.

However, even with my preformed reluctance to participating in such transactions, I pushed myself into the cold wild, dedicating myself to the potential of a career in car sales. I watched videos, listened to audio books, and read books about the business. I cast aside my ego to venture forth naked of all but my curiosity and desire to achieve.

The weekend of my engulfment into car sales was highly unusual. The company owned three car lots, and had gathered each lot's used cars onto one lot, touting itself as the biggest used car sale in the area, or what I referred to as the largest used car sale in the history of the universe. There were roughly six sales representatives from each dealership present at all times, resulting in around 18 people standing, sitting, and walking around in anticipation of the daily catch, and that is really the analogy that best describes car sales: fishing.

Car dealerships are like bodies of water, each body possessing certain types of fish susceptible to specific baits and tackle. Modern dealerships straddle the line between stocked pond, in which the fishing experience is engineered so as to eliminate the unpredictability of a wild environment, while still offering food and access to wild fish through the tributary rivulets contributing to its water levels. The sales representative must possess the standardized tools that serve consistently for the generic fish, and a hodgepodge of collected that experience dictates will serve well in specific situations.

That weekend, the best bait to use was dynamite. I pushed myself in front of the other salesmen, addressed as many customers as I could see, regardless of appearance, smell, attractiveness, height, skin color, and otherwise, and without any previous experience and training, in two days' time sold two vehicles, all while earning the ire of 15 other salespeople who, apparently, believed that it to be the responsibility of the fish to jump into the, and here I cannot even say outstretched net, but I suppose to jump onto the shore of the lake, flop around down the road to a hardware store, sneak in through the back after an employee walks back in from a smoke break, wait for a clumsy customer to knock a hammer to the floor, swallow the entire hammer, flop back out through the back door at closing time after the employees leave, travel back down the road to the shore lined with fishermen, cough up the hammer into the air so that it falls back onto the fish's skull, and await the fisherman who, after chatting with the other fisherman about last night's adventures, happens to notice, while scanning the ground for cigarettes with a hint of remnant tobacco, the dried, suffering body of their day's catch lying unconscious on the sand.

It was a good start to my future career in car sales. Following the weekend sale, I sold a new car to a woman who I'd somehow established such a bond of trust that she felt comfortable telling me stories of her fake breasts, and how showing them to police officers had saved her from more than one ticket. I closed out that month by earning enough money from commission to have beat my projected earnings.

After the sale, the monotony of day to day car salesman life made itself apparent. In between the intensity of hooking a catch were periods of waiting, a mixture of both patience and anticipation, requiring the maintenance of a subtle level of stress, just enough to trigger an excited response at the potential of a bite.

In the second and final month of my employment, I managed to keep myself, with an infinitely less developed customer base, right on the heels of the veterans. Where the other new guy hadn't sold a single car, I'd sold 3.5, and the veterans ranged from 2 to 5. I was enjoying myself, the unique situations with each new customer were like private screenings of never-before-seen movies, each with a script composed by life itself, limited in my experience only by my own desire and ability to focus on the details.

Enter: General Manager. To a point, I had been working directly with a sales manager and other sales representatives. In each of these people was a level of empathy that allowed for a mutually supportive relationship. None of us wanted, or seemed to want, the others to fail, and we all shared with each other the thoughts necessary to contribute to our successes. However, every employee, no matter their diligence and dedication, must some day be away from work.

For those unfamiliar with U.S. car dealerships, sales people are encouraged, and often required, to turn over unsold customers to management as a last effort to convert a customer into a sale. Also a common practice is for sales people to 'touch the desk', or report to a manager with details about a deal being worked on, which allows the manager to, ideally, impart wisdom or advice that will contribute to the realization of a positive final transaction.

While dealing with

ah, fuck it. i don't want to write anymore, but it seems a waste to just throw this away.

I've had this wmo 1.1a for quite awhile (I got it from school) and it seems that every time I plug it in the pointer speed is really slow even on 6/11. I have to increase the windows pointer settings to 8/11 or above to make it feel fast. I have it clocked to 500hz with markC fix. Idk if its the mouse or something else. Any other wmo users ever have this problem?

i've been waiting for a good new coheed and cambria album since good apollo iv volume 1, and now i've found it.

it's more technicaller and intricater than coheed, but still has the same tone, attitude, and mood. this has filled a void in my life that, with each new coheed release, grew more and more distinctly and bleakly apparent. the only downside is that i can never speak their awful band name aloud.

also, demiurge turned me on to obscura:
