Ultraviolet - Volume II: Medius (2 comments)

The second of a series of three retrospective frag films, Medius includes content from the most popular era of ET (2005-2009). Unlike the previous volume, Principium, this film contains a lot of in-eye footage and is a much more lively viewing experience, while still maintaining the tone of the series.

The film contains scenes from over 35 Enemy Territory players from all around the world. Some of the footage has been seen before, but much of it will be presented in a frag film for the first time and hopefully in a way that viewers have not really seen before in Enemy Territory.

Initially I had intended for all three movies to be short, however, due to all of the content I wanted to use and a lot of ideas that I had, this volume is over ten minutes in length.

- timers for your pick ups/seen pick up
- fucking AAA tutorials not only showing key pressings. Youll have to do some magic here to teach a new player how to cj, strafejump, etc. Yes the average player nowadays is borderline retarded

Any known G100 sources? Ebay? Internet? (2 comments)
Posted by StillBlaze @ 19:03 BST, 26 May 2015 - iMsg
So i wanted to buy a cheap one just to check out and mess about with, dont really want to pay the 40 euros locally.

I was thinking about looking for a cheap one, somewhat like Takastas WMOs, repackaged or whatever not new in the box but the shipping raises the price. I would pay full price if it was proven to my liking, but theres a chance ill use it a few hours and just go back to WMO only. I also noticed a trend in newer games, all having anti cheat systems that do not allow test versions of windows so my brother is using a second mouse for DayZ, Rust and maybe even H1Z1

Refurbished or repackaged 27 dollars with shipping

19 dollars with free shipping, claims brand new? probably takes an extra week or so

When i Ebay g100s i get plenty of enticing prices, has anyone bought from any of these sellers? Ebay link below;_sacat=0

Hello, could you ztn / aero obsessed people please learn new maps plz ?

I'm fed up of people coming to my server, calling vote ztn, then aero (and then often campgrounds, which hasn't been played competitively for years but whatever) and just leaving when I vote "no" to both. There are other (and better) maps than massively over played, 20 years old, boring maps.

I like playing ztn and aero once in a while but not as much as other new, less known maps; be assured that there is great pleasure in learning and mastering new maps...

Day of the week themed server (5 comments)

Casual day of the week themed server
Northwest America may be interested in this announcement. I'm going to be running a plethora of casual game modes for each day of the week. Starting tomorrow. I hope this style server will give new and old players alike something refreshing.

The schedule as of now:
-Mystery Mod Mondays (random custom modifications like gaunt 1flagctf)
-Torpid F-T Tuesdays
-Domination Humpdays
-Throttling A&D Thursdays
-Ferkin Classic TDM Fridays
-Salty Red Rover Satudays
-Sabbath Harvest Sundays.

The schedule and gamemodes are likely going to readjust after time. I was also considering skipping weekends and run my typical hal9000 nostalgic clan arena server.

Suggestions and moderators needed.

Location is always going to be Seattle. Weapon load outs will be avoided in most game modes. The server will have a bot for community admins. The bot won't help with balancing because the game modes aren't supported by qlranks but customized elo can be set up to match a players dm elo. The bot will be used mostly to keep things civil. All player skill levels are welcomed and to be treated with respect.

Cya in the pixel world.

Everything Reflex design (48 comments)
Posted by wnz @ 07:51 BST, 26 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello there, I'm just a guy who's trying to learn from both quake and reflex (haven't played this last one).
For example I read Reflex is armor based, it doesn't tick down and absorbs half of the damage, the advantages of this are not obvious to me. It means health becomes more important but then what? One thing cut from management? Different weapon balancement? Do kills take a bit more without armor ticking down?

There's also something to say about railgun's presence in duels: it slows them down. In duels and in small maps like the aerowalk one of big and fast jumps chasing happens and stop n go gameplay is reduced without such gun around.
Resulting in faster action and more kills. I'm not sure why the rail is still there in cpm22 duels, otherwise it's a magnificent weapon in team based modes.

So in general how much is reflex different from quake cpma and do you think the gameplay can be smoothed to work faster?

I think I can find more quake issues that went to reflex.
For exaple the railgun again is too effective at short distance. It's also too effective as a finisher.
The shotgun has nice "circles" to assume some dmg but like the quake one I can't really tell from videos because the shot is not contained like every other projectile gun. Or the rail.
And the plasmagun is good at everything but it's not specialised in something which doesn't make it a very good weapon, it doesn't top any "role".
Also the starting weapon is something that works on one side but not so much as far as teaching noobs to shoot goes, I watched duelers struggling to aim with such thing.
Lastly something that is totally WIP, weapon animations. The rocket doesn't really feedback on reloads (shooting is reloading but players can't tell the time between shots) nor ammo. This doesn't have much to do with skills as much as experience and good feedback is going to teach minor things faster.

pls forgive my ramblings and typos:) it's just quake is not perfect and it's weird reflex is following similar paths

Found abandoned bird. Named her Sparks. (128 comments)
Posted by cl0ck @ 17:23 BST, 23 May 2015 - iMsg
So I am rehabilitating this baby fledgling that I found near my car. It appeared to be abandoned by its mother. Unfortunately, it doesn't follow my direction very well (in regards to feeding), hardly responds to anything I do and does not seem strong enough to survive my care.

I have named her Sparks.

Sparks the bird video

So yesterday I noticed this bird next to my car, which was parallel parked near my house. I didn't think anything of it. I came back two hours later it was still there and I noticed cars that were attempting to parallel park were having to dodge it and were coming pretty close to hitting it. I lightly moved it closer to the street. I went back outside a few hours later to take my dog out and saw it was still there in the exact same spot I moved it to. I decided to scoop it up and take it in my house and figure out what to do with it.

I call my vet, they said they don't deal with wildlife but referred me to some wildlife rehabilitation centers in the Chicago area to call. I called a few and they referred me to two people who specifically handle rehabilitating these birds (this type of bird is a protected bird here in Chicago, called a Common Starling). Unfortunately due to the holiday weekend these people told me that they were unable to take in the bird until Monday. They advised me to either put it in a bush and hope for the best or attempt to take care of it until then. Being as I am such a nice guy, I decided to try and care for it until one of these centers is open to take it.

After googling stuff and making a few pet-store runs I have acquired the necessary materials to attempt to care for this bird until I can deliver it to this lady on Monday.

Edit: I have decided to begin accepting donations to help get the bird to Quakecon.

Description by Spain santile:
"This movie simply showcases some runs done by a few players. However this time I got rid of the run time overlay, hoping to make the action more clear. You can see the runtimes and download the demos below ;)

I decided to make it a series, hopefully having more regular content on my youtube channel. You can also enjoy 5 different audio tracks if you download the original movie, just in case this one isn't of your taste (I even included a metal one :o)

Other than that, it's the same old boring formula : show runs, some recams here and there, a bit of CC ... I focused a bit more on the synchronization this time, however I am far from mastering it :D"

Life after 1.1a (36 comments)
Posted by TunaH @ 09:14 BST, 23 May 2015 - iMsg
Dear Mouse experts of ESR,

How are you guys?
I have a quick question which I need your expertise on. I have been using the 1.1a for a decade. And currently the past year, I have been using it on 125hz (coz Windows 8).

I really want to have a mouse that is capable of 500hz but I dont know which one would be the most suitable for me. Because the shape of 1.1a gives me orgasms while I play and in my mind it's the only mouse I really like.

I have seen some Zowie mouse, but they are like a freakin cellphone manufacturer, just too many of them. Which one of those would be suitable?

Let me know your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

PS: I have a MX518, DA 2007 here. And both feel like a brick to me. Especially the DA. It's super heavy.

Hey guys,

some of my friends developed a platform for watching and tracking your statistics in CS:GO.

The community CSGO-STATS.NET is a unique platform that presents Counter-Strike players their own statistics in a special way for comparing, sharing and developing themself. Further media companies could extract some graphics and statistics about Pro-Teams like fnatic or Ninjas in Pyjamas for their editorial content. The whole content is also available for mobile devices. Otherwise the community
elaborated more graphics and statistics better prepared then other competitors.

What is your opinion? What is positive? What is negative?

Demoflex - Native Reflex Demoplayer (10 comments)
Posted by phgp_zEv @ 05:09 BST, 21 May 2015 - iMsg
Today we are very excited to introduce the first Reflex Demo-editing tool. Demoflex is a stand-alone Windows client that makes it much easier to filter, edit, preview, and manage your Reflex Demos/Replays. We built Demoflex from the ground up with Moviemakers in mind but also wanted to make it easier for new players to watch and analyze matches.

Some Key features of Demoflex:

Inline Demoviewing
Easy Export of TGA's
Easy Previewing of Demos
Predefined Moviemaking Settings
Runs on Windows Vista and higher ( best experience: windows 8 )
How to install ? - Just put the "Demoflex.exe" into your Reflex game directory, Thats it!

After the very exhausting last few days we are happy with the result and are sure you will be too. If you encounter any bugs tell us in the comments below and we will fix them asap! Now lets watch some Replays!

You can download Demoflex here -

Donation for Igamerz (Hotel) (158 comments)
Posted by strenx @ 11:27 BST, 20 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello everyone,

I really do not like to ask this, but I will take my courage to do so. I do not think for myself, but for my team. As you might know, we are playing for Igamerz, which can pay us the travel in order to partcipate to Quakecon. Nonetheless, we've been told that it is a better option to ask for donation for the Hotel. (As far as I know it is near 900-1200 $ for the Hotel but I'm not sure exactly, as we can have some reduction.

A friend of mine asked me kindly to share a room with his friends as they needed one more to pay the hotel, so it would less to pay for the team. I ask this for my 3 team mates + manager (Clawz, silencep and Cypher + Surion (known as pussychevsky ;)). Would you be kind enough to help us, and I swear that I really don't like to go this far. I appreciate and I hope we will do good in this event.

Do not even start with Get a job! :) haha, have a nice day and thank you !

My paypal is :

As I told you, someone need to ask for it, I do not mind to ask for it. At least I try, I can fix my problem, but I ask this for my 3 team mates

Anyone know the addresses to the QCon CTF/TDM streams? The only ones I've found are these two:

I was watching some CTF last night, it was pretty good. I liked it better than the regular ctf coverage with announcers because in the streams you can hear the teams communicating and it makes it much more interesting. I wish they could incorporate that into the qcon coverage somehow.

The 1v1 tourney looses its "who's the best in the world ?" property if one of the 5 (3 ?) top contestants is not playing :/

and he has a unique style. Even if its almost only online, he's one of the big names now and its always a shame when a big name doesn't attend (I have the same feeling about k1llsen)

Solution for reflex ingame item timers (54 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 08:12 BST, 19 May 2015 - iMsg
Reflex devs finally found a way to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.

The new HUD which shows item timers is a great addition for those unfamiliar with timing and meta game aspect - at the same time it arguably ruined the competitive aspect and a large portion of so called meta game.

A future update will include a HUD callvote that enables or disables the timers for all participants on the server.

Official statement from newborn:
At some point in a future update we will be adding a "callvote lockhud" command. This will force players to use the official, unmodified HUD files only and will not include item timers (or strafe jump helpers, or grenade timers etc). Over time, this will become part of a larger system of settings that are appropriate for competitions and high level play but not for general pub games.

My logitech diededed, recommendations? (48 comments)
Posted by piss_wizard @ 22:36 BST, 18 May 2015 - iMsg
My G400s is dying/dead and I'd like to replace it. I'm a fingertip player and I use a medium/low (37cm/360) sens. My mousepad is a QcK SK Gaming edition, but I'll want to replace that too.

I was looking at the G402 (used to the shape since i've used an mx518 + g400 prior to my g400s) but I was wondering if the sidebutton would hinder my ability to grip the thing properly (I have pretty long fingers), and I feel like the G502 would be too heavy for me.

I hate to be the guy that doesn't have any idea what he's looking for, but yeah, I am that guy. If anybody has any recommendations for me, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Q43A update #19.9-gv (7 comments)
Posted by p0rt @ 18:23 BST, 16 May 2015 - iMsg
heres a update patch repack

adds si_gravity and pm_jumpheight to q43a launcher, and server setup cvars

if no si_gravity is set,in the used serve config then you maps will use the gravity key in the maps worldspawn, if worldspawn key is not set then the games hardcoded default gravity

download :

includes a new comp damage set which lowers the damage on all weapons a little, and fixes the rocket jump so it wont send you to the other side of the map

extract .7z into q43a folder thats in the quake 4 folder

run q43a launcher, and load the q43a_launcher_cpma_ish.cfg server config, and launch your server

Bad Maps sucking the fun out of the game (20 comments)
Posted by wanna_fight @ 22:27 BST, 14 May 2015 - iMsg
As you may know, I think Syncerror is a nice individual.
Everything he does seems to make the game worse. Today I'm going to rant about the maps.

First he removed 19 maps, some of which were rather popular.
Then he set it so that players (+90%) can't vote on which of the remaining maps they prefer.
And finally he stuck us with the same map rotation for what feels like 6 months!

Is he trying to drive people away? Why the hell can't we get a little variety? The map pool used to change every month, now it's the same fucking thing every fucking day! I'm beginning to forget what the other maps look like!

Reflex 0.34 is out, so is this video! (163 comments)
Posted by phgp_zEv @ 09:56 BST, 14 May 2015 - iMsg
Press release:

Reflex 0.34 has been released, featuring a new sun/sky system, a new race mode and the usual slew of bugfixes and tweaks! But more importantly it also brings the last pieces of our core tech into the game, marking our transition from pre-alpha to alpha. To celebrate, not only have we released a new development update video, we've decided to go 50% off for the next week.

The last four-and-a-bit months have been breakneck for developers and players alike.

We've released a netcode update that has been widely praised by the most competitive and demanding AFPS players on the planet.

We've launched a brand new, extremely configurable UI and HUD system. User-made custom HUDs are appearing almost daily and game configuration now much more accessible for players who haven't spent 15 years using console commands.

On the graphic side, we've made huge tweaks to the renderer that not only brought the finishing touches to our PBR rendering pipeline, but also gave solid framerates to players with hardware that would struggle to be considered "low end".

Throughout this development, we've also seen over 200 community made maps uploaded to the fan site. There have been multiple competitions each month, ranging from the low-skill focused Garbage Cup to competitions like the THC Cup and Sanetopia, featuring some of the best players in Europe and North America. Each competition is seeing more signups and a larger prize pool than the last.

With all our tech now in place, we're ready to start smashing out art and gameplay updates, squashing bugs and implementing features the community has been eagerly awaiting like matchmaking, VoIP and Steam Workshop.

Get involved!

Future of e-sport (34 comments)
Posted by nined @ 20:16 BST, 13 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello guyz,

1st of descibed concept is not new and already got some analogs.

Found ESR community forum best place to describe in a brief my futuristic but mb interesting idea :-) Cause on ESR are the most progressive, open-minded, active nerds, youngsters and big ballers community ever. Best gaming, non stoping, wanking bunny hoping rabbits, very smart and high educated individuals.

What is described below are related to whole competitive gaming or so called cybersport, e-sport. It is about decentralization, bitcoin and brand new vision to old things. It is just short memo but worth a big article with history, theory etc. It's not unique but kinda words not spoken.

------histrory/theory/conspiracy (!content warning! pass this part you can feel sick)

Let's take modern e-sport history from twitch tv times, casters, big tournaments, big games. 90% of players playing just for fun, ye ye players know how to jerk a mouse and keyboard decent part of theirs damn lifes with visual interaction they see on the screen, so most action take place in da brains, like interactive sweet motion fantacy, at 1st glance looks like kinda cyberpunk stuff)

Gaming is similar to real mastrubation and is an addition/substitition to this, just another form of mastrubation, kinda safe/indirect form. It is researched by smart BIG people, books written etc, if you disagree just deal with it. This forum is not a place for detail descibtion of such 'deep, dark' psy/ conspircy things. But in a brief. No talks about who is Carmac and why quake are full of some 'devil textures', why Carmac gone to research wanking helmet hardware/software, why LOL/DOTA sponsors are porntubes, why oldgames and games are not supported anymore.

So 90% of players are just for fun players - yes it's ok and kinda normal. But addiction to gaming is powered by some 'unconsciousness impulses', engine is youngster 'sexuality' (libido, hormones, complex things ) and competitive games are developed in special way, saying it without 'psy' things is special way then outcome of a match, battle is very unpredictable and it is similar to real gambling then u place a bet and get excited of a win and loose, whatever hormones/psy mechanic used and you playing more and more. Look at large cut of stats of team play based games, you'll see aproximated 50% wins and 50% looses and you will never be sure of match result till last second - that how modern games are developed.

Also moden online games are kinda substitution (projection) of real life success absence/failure so that why people who play games called tards, nerds etc. But better play games for fun while you are young instead of going to streets and fighing for you slave rights, its like 'utilization' of our energy, 24h wank a mouse, fight with monsters, repeating devils texture more and more untill full unsatisfaction. Thats is conspiracy part, yes not all words spoken....on public but that is enough to catch idea

----the IDEA
Ok, there is like 2 ways of playing modern competitive games
FOR fun and like a pro with sponsorts, tournament, money prizes, casting, fun sector etc attributes. Important thing is that you can get money only from sposnors ie centralized. So called pro playing is depended on sponsors who are just figuratively speaking 'jew-mascons' companies with their OWN interests.

It's like you are a bitch and you income depends only from P.I.M.P rest of the time you just sucking rockets :-) for fun! Can you be described as pro bitch, the answer is - "no', you just kinda slave and regardless how good you are in sucking, you cannot get benefit from it. Can Cooller or someone else get more benefit from his wins more then just fun, may be yes if someone deside to make a tournament..on old game..i dont to monetize Cooller skills? I dont know..just play for fun) But got some idea/teknology that can change it) if it will be accepted and realized.

If you are playing really good, you have talant, train well, got xp or just smoke damn kushy kush before online/lan matches like Cypher/Avek/Cooller/Rapha etc did. You can get benefit from you everyday play, you do moneytized you addiction/hobby, but those people are like 1% and industry use only new games, new trends, new players of certain game generation - big brother pay only big brothers games, community, tournaments. Nobody needs quake, cause its old and community are old)

---The idea itself
Imagine you are pro sportsman or pro team of damn pro uber railers) Imagine the game is damn good no matter who developed it, how old it is, gfx etc just good game for e-sport. What you will do? Wait for sponsors or start for fun...Now imagine gambling nerd - addicted of 'adrenaline' of wining or loosing his money (form of energy), He place a bet and rely ONLY ON LUCK, CHANCE. Gambling nerd cannot AFFECT on result directly or even indirectly - wheel just rotating its totally random.

Now imagine a cybershamanic sportsman and gambling approach. You play match/ tournament/ league and invest small amount of money..lets imagine teamplay of some 12v12 game like BF or ETQW or even QL (not matter of stupid mechanic)

and invest small amount of money into you match, its like a bet but you/team can affect on outcome, you are responsable for result, you playing serious, better and its 100 times more exiting (main point) can loose you bet or double it or take the whole tournament prize

For those of you who thinging right now (wtf, i will never invest money in this - its just no fun,its just a game. i'm not a gambler..yes you are not, you are super shamanic cyber sportsmen and you earned some small money using you skills instead of playing for fun...)

Imagine you are Agent and working hard on russian car factory doing robotic stuff whole week or just euro unemployed individual with small income or pocket money) You want to relax on Sunday, smoke some kush or drink gozhelka (vodka) add $5-10 to tournament (inside safe, secured, decentalized bitcoin based, not gov regulation, prooven gaming-gambling system) is you chance to get fun playing + earn at smallest double money or more.

Is it better instead playing for fun or rely on sponsors, is it for adults? is it serious, more then. You can play any game even those who not anymore supported for 'some reason'. Games can be more interesting, more exiting cause its very close to real things.

I dont like gambling and never bet money on something, but gambling then you are fully involved and responsable for outcome is much better, its is sport without sponsors...It is way of free people)

I would not descibe tech aspect detail of such e-sport system but in can be real competetor to real gambling and someone want to regulate/tax it. Bitcon, blockchain and modern technologies is your friend my dear. Think about income of such e-sport casinos (dont like this word) and their %'s?

One more time such private e-sport casinos already exist but not developed well or are just developing right now.

----fun sector
For you shamanic haters and lovers i can recommend best and last Carmacs quake creation ever, it's a pity not seen it being younger) It called ETQW - yes best developed and designed team-class-based fps game ever made. So i write this concept ('idea') inspired by brilliant teamplay game, combining best from TF's, ET, all versions of quake, BF's and more

Quake are just too way old and outdated, simple robotic gameplay even in tdm. It was good for all time. But i think e-sport+gambling concept desribed here can be applied to any game.

Thanks for reading, no i released my brain)

Going about change (11 comments)
Posted by BalkanFM @ 22:58 BST, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
Change and Quake never went good together, the biggest negative effect of this in my opinion are the thousands of maps that never got played because of peoples unwillingness to change..

it was reflexs item timers that got me thinking about this, but as i read later, it wasnt an intentional change in gameplay... however it might be, i am a bit sad about this change, because i think it gave a lot of depth to the game.(not the math part, but how you had to orient yourself in time, between items and goals with the information you gathered, deducted, guessed)...

now again, i know that the item timers are a consequence of the new ui system, but many players have found sound arguments why they are a thing to keep. I think its mostly new players that like the new system because they havent been with the game long enough to really appreciate this element. It took me many years of playing to realy realy realize how strong positioning is.(think of how good strenx already was, but still cooller opened a whole new chapter in his playbook with his "know when to be aggressive and when to not be aggressive"... its the same with timing, you cant ever just learn it like a circle jump, there are just to many factors to consider to completely analyze even a short section of a duel game. No one can ever attain this perfection, thats why its beautiful because at times, magic happens and players reach towards this perfection.

Regardless of this i can see myself enjoying games with item timers, and just as you have fast maps like aerowalk, and slow like ztn, you could have maps with item timers and maps without them.

To give more examples; people go nuts over "small" changes like lowering the lg damage from 6 to 7, why not have them both? it was apparent very early in quake 3 that some weapons worked in duel but didnt have a desirable effect in tdm.
I dont think players would have such a strong resistance if the core gamplay stayed the same and give the mapers the power to incorporate the change where it is desired.

Mechanics such as the rocket and plasma ground boost which i really hope get added to reflex, would not appeal to everyone but im sure they wouldnt mind it if it was a map element, (map and area specific) and you could play maps with or without it.
The way it is with weapons basically, the mapper decides which weapons to include in his map

In short, dont change the core, instead introduce changes as map elements.

How what why did i come to the conclusion?

I was messing about in my familys 27 inch IMac with a 20 euro Logitech wireless mouse, i ended up on the reaction time tester found here

I am "old" (26) and slow so i get like 220 ms average when im fresh and like 260ish when im drunk, stoned, tired or just not feeling great. My brother is 5 years younger and he always averaged 180-220ms under the above circumstances roughly.

We both scored a good 30-50ms faster using far inferior setup and my only and instant feeling is the WMO mouse click is a lot heavier and harder, more defined ect. And its shown in CSGO that if your not fast and hard with your 1 taps you can easily shoot 2 bullets when not trying to burst.

So i compare what i know, 144hz BenQ, i7 4770k/4790k + 970/780ti gpu sitting ready to game on both our setups. WMO @ 500hz


2009 27 inch i5 imac with 2500xwhatever resolution at 60hz while standing up and laughing at the wireless mouse.

There has to be at least 20ms or more added time on the imac? or am i looking at things illogically?

This is nothing more then food for thought, and if you are interested in proving this correct or even false i challenge all of you to get all your spares or old gaming mice out and do at least 3 or so 5 click tests and post the averages between them all. This will only work properly if done one after another ect witin 10-20 mins and not hours.

I would really be interested in what people say and find, WMO still the best weight, best size, best or equal sensor, but the scroll wheel is garbage and it seams the mouse clickers might be inferior.

If i were to have to explain it even though my DA 2013 feels like a whale the clicker feels easier and gradual as where the WMO is more hard style click.

./troll away if you must

if i missed anything sorry

If you need a GraKa with 2 DVI ports (8 comments)
Posted by crea* @ 14:01 BST, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
..don't compromise.
I did. It went very wrong.

I own two fine Samsung 2233rz monitors and I use them as dual monitors. The 2233rz has the port standard of his time, DVI. For 120 Hz, dual link output is needed.

I got a new PC with graphics card HIS Radeon R9 280.
Ports available: 1xDVI dual, 1x HDMI (1.4a), 2x mini DisplayPort.

Now, DVI-D or DVI-I in dual link pinning will always give you 120Hz for at least 1080p and lower resolutions. Good old trusty DVI.

HDMI is basically useless. There is no way I know of to get even low resolutions at 120 Hz... can't even overrule the predefined resolution/refresh settings....60 Hz is max.

DisplayPort _should_ theoretically have been fine, but it isn't. Because to convert DVI to DisplayPort, an "active" adapter is needed, which is horribly expensive (80-100 eur). Such bullshit, why not think of this converting issue from the start.

So anyways, I made this thread to 1. warn you about HDMI and displayport, which are pure shit if you want compatibility,
and 2. ask if anyone maybe has found a solution or workaround for this?

Edit: I found a non-expensive active mDP to dual-link DVI adapter:
"Delock Adapter mini Displayport 1.2 DVI 4K Aktiv"
I emailed the manufacturer to ask if 120hz is possible, I'll update if I get an answer

Censorship in Reflex forums - be warned (180 comments)
Posted by storm @ 10:02 BST, 10 May 2015 - iMsg

Just letting you all know that I posted a reasonable non-abusive thread on the official Reflex forums, asking that they remove the in-game timer with good reasoning as to why I was asking.

There were quickly a whole lot of replies from other forum users agreeing with me, and I thought 'brilliant! the community is smart' I was thinking how great the developers were listening to the community and making improvements based on suggestions etc... Then......

My thread gets deleted.......

I don't have an exact copy of what I wrote, but from memory it was something like this "Please remove the in game timer. To be taken seriously as a competitive game it needs to be removed. Having this creates situations where players constantly rush items instead of thinking 'Okay my enemy has more armour, he's just fragged me, I'm not 100% sure of the RA time so I'll run the secondary items to stack back up' etc, all that strategic side of the game doesn't currently exist due to these timers.

Anyway yeah, on ESR we have free speech, this is why I love this site.

a few questions from a noob... (20 comments)
Posted by draxus99 @ 03:18 BST, 10 May 2015 - iMsg
1)How do you get this crosshair that I see in so many vods on youtube: (It's like drawcrosshair 2 only with longer thinner bars!)

2)If using a custom HUD based crosshair is there a way to get it to show the crosshair when spectating?

3)Is there a way to use different HUD based crosshairs for different weapons?

4)Is there a way to get cg_crosshairHitStyle effect on a HUD based crosshair? (turn crosshair red when scoring a hit)

5)Do most players use cg_simpleItems 1 or 0? Is there any advantage to either?

6)How do you get enemy names over their heads? (People will be like "kill so and so first" and I'm like ... how do I know which enemy he is?!)

7)Do people use cg_truelightning 1.0 on LAN?

8)cg_lightningImpact 1 or 0? cg_lightningImpactCap?

Thanks for the help :) P.S. I'm going to QuakeCon this year just for fun and to watch the matches :)

Sapphire r9 290 tri-x and crt monitor (5 comments)
Posted by ndp15 @ 10:17 BST, 9 May 2015 - iMsg
I bought this graphics card some days ago and I want to use it (play quake and normal usage) with my NEC MultiSync FE1250+ monitor (
The graphics card has 4 output port: 1 x HDMI (with 3D), 1 x DisplayPort 1.2, 2 x Dual-Link DVI-D.
The crt monitor obviously has only a VGA input port.
I understand that I need a digital to analogical active adapter to use them but here we come to the problems: which input port is better (if there is one..) to use? Can I use low resolution (like 800x600 or 1024X768) and change refresh rate up to 144hz with an adapter like this? (sorry for the italian link, it says that is a DP to VGA adapter and you can use it up to 1920x1200 resolution).
Do you have some cheaper solutions?

Mouse hell (28 comments)
Posted by Spaceboy @ 12:23 BST, 8 May 2015 - iMsg
Ever find yourself in a situation where for some inexplicable reason your mouse doesn't feel like it used to and shots that used to be easy now take an immense amount of effort to hit? Players you used to beat routinely are now giving you a hard time or even kicking your ass. etc

So you double check your config and sensitivity and all that stuff, trying to figure why this is happening. Nope, everything is fine. Got the same old sens, acceleration and Windows settings. But still something about the mouse feels a bit off.

So maybe you try changing mice or mouse pads. With one mouse you shaft like a pro but can't hit rockets to save your life. Another mouse gives you back your rocket aim but now your LG is all over the place.Eventually you'll find a combination that sort of works, but it's still not quite the same as it used to be.

"Why is this happening? What am I doing wrong? Maybe Windows Update screwed it up somehow. Is my USB port overclock still working? Maybe I should try reinstalling the Win7 acceleration fix. And maybe also reinstall the game. Ok, I guess I'll reinstall Windows too."

Welcome to mouse hell.

ASUS ROG Sica (15 comments)
Posted by h8m3 @ 20:03 BST, 7 May 2015 - iMsg
Has anyone else tried it yet?
I really like the shape so far. Front is a lot like aurora(a bit less wide, slightly more \_/ shaped) while back is a mix of g100s and abyssus, fits my palm really well.
Sensor feels good, can easily do over 5m/s, etc.
The only negatives so far are rather thick cable(I've swapped mine to old razer thin one) and high button latency around 20ms(although that has never been a problem for me). The latter is most likely caused by the fact that the mouse features easy-swap switch sockets and they made a huge debouncing delay to be sure there're no problems with any microswitches. Could be fixed with a firmware update in the future, my mouse already updated once after driver installation.
Overall the mouse seems like a proper abyssus update.
Here's my comparison photogallery with other popular symmetrical mice:
The mouse has been selling in Taiwan for a couple of weeks, so it should arrive everywhere worldwide soon. For anyone eager to try one now -, delivery takes 4-5 days.

Elder as a competitive map. (85 comments)
Posted by fny @ 08:34 BST, 6 May 2015 - iMsg
If I had to take one conclusion away from casting a few games on it during the small cup we had, it's that it looks super promissing but sure could use some tweaks. I'm a huge fan of the old Q1 aspects like the key, which adds another dynamic of control of being able to chase and run in a position where your opponent can't, and the buttons to open staircases that can be used both for trapping and for fooling.

Overall it needs more playtesting, I'm hoping someone, if not myself, will arrange a more planned cup for it and actually have more players play on it to see various playstyles and what could need a tweak or two.

Still, fun games, thanks to the people who played and watched the cup last night, was fun. Ash #1.

I made a kinzu mod, i coupled a kinzu squeletal with an Abyssus PCB (not 2014 version, not sure if Abyssus 2014 PCB would fit, if you have picture of it pls send it to me).

The original kinzu PCB is in two parts, the scrool wheel and the buttons on one PCB and the sensor on another.

So i had two ideas :

1 - i find a mouse featuring everyting on one PCB (wheel, button and sensor) fitting the entire shell of the mouse which is VERY unlikely, especialy the buttons would not meet the shell at the pressur points.

or 2 : i find a mouse featuring double PCB and i keep the sensor part and fix it to the kinzu button and wheel part. So far i made a list of mouse featuring dual PCB but i do not know for sure if they are compatible.

List of dual PCB mouse :
Corsair M45
CM Storm Recon
Kone Pure Optical
Kone Pure Optical Military?
Zowie EC eVo
Zowie EC1-A ?
Deathadder 3.5G
Deathadder 3G
Deatheradder 4G = no
Deathadder chroma ?

To my surprise the Abyssus is a mono PCB mouse and the PCB fit almost EXACTLY the dual PCB of the kinzu sensor position and scroll wheel and buttons are almost to the milimeter at the right place, so i decided to try and mod it!

It works perfectly.

(pictures coming soon!)

PS : i would like to compile a listing of mice PCB. With one side mouse with mono PCB and one side with mouse with dual PCB. I already have quite a few mice, i will put this in this thread if it's ok.

How to increase your idiocy (33 comments)
Posted by nthreem @ 19:20 BST, 4 May 2015 - iMsg
I usually just stalk these forums, but I just had to post this.

I'm mainly a CA and insta player, but I definitely enjoy watching the duel leagues going on every month. I've dabbled in duel and other game modes, but most of my friends stick to the easier ones, so that's where I am mostly.

For the most part, I just stay quiet and keep to myself on public servers, but for some reason this player named "derb_" has a terrible grudge against me and my clan P4F.

About a month ago I'm just spec'ing quietly and waiting to join the a game and derb_ callvotes to kick me. It was a server mostly of my friends, so it really backfired on him. He starts spewing profanities and attempts to kick the server owner. That led to his own kick from the server.

Fast forward up to yesterday, and I'm in a pub server minding my own business. It became a lop-sided game after a high skilled player joined my team. I think derb_ joined the server when the score was 3-1.

The following round, I had a pretty good run with a nice LG wall-pin to rail combo, then I cleaned up with some easy jumppad LG kills. I'm not a rockstar by any means, but I do have my moments. But immediately after this round, derb_ starts to berate me, calling me a hacker, and harassing me.

I'm not here to cry like a little baby; I'm a big boy and can handle stupid behavior. I'm just curious what the community thinks about his accusation.

Here's the video starting from the round derb_ joined, up until right before he left (when the game kinda got too lop-sided).

Reflex Sanetopia Day 1 completed! (5 comments)
Posted by sane @ 15:45 BST, 4 May 2015 - iMsg
With most of the matches completed (the goal was to go through round 3 of winner/lower brackets) we are finished with day 1 of the sanetopia tournament. There were some no shows as expected, and sadly Gellehsak did not show up for the tournament, but hopefully next time it will be a different story. Besides all the walk overs and no shows, I believe we had some great games and there are much more to come!

I would also like to thank the casters: Mtarget & Phylum For an awesome job and all the support

With that I would also like to thank PHGP for all the support as well and giving us streaming + casting help! They also gave out many prizes during the duration of the tournament on stream. Gave away 6 copies of Reflex to the people that were watching the games! Thank you PHGP

The rest of the games will be played during the week (if both players agree) but the majority of the games will be played/finished Sunday May 10th starting 4pm PST - 7pm EST

Good luck to all the players and lets have an amazing Grand Finals!!
