Epic Games Will Provide $100,000,000 for Fortnite Esports (20 comments)
Posted by son1dow @ 11:44 CDT, 21 May 2018 - iMsg
Fortnite Competitors!

Grab your gear, drop in and start training. Since the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale we’ve watched the passion for community competition grow and can’t wait to empower you to battle with the best.

In the 2018 - 2019 season, Epic Games will provide $100,000,000 to fund prize pools for Fortnite competitions. We’re getting behind competitive play in a big way, but our approach will be different - we plan to be more inclusive, and focused on the joy of playing and watching the game.

Stay tuned for more details about competitive structures and eligible platforms in the weeks ahead!

The original VR Quake experience (2 comments)
Posted by dondeq2 @ 11:13 CDT, 18 May 2018 - iMsg


Most of us gamers have heard about the Quake experience in VR on the Oculus Rift. Here is my latest Quake gaming history video [23 minutes length] about the less well known, very first Quake experience in virtual reality.

CAVE QUAKE II is an adaptation of the popular PC game Quake 2 for the CAVE, the world’s first immersive virtual reality platform! The demo by Paul Rajlich is fully playable in single player and multiplayer deathmatch, and shows how compelling a game becomes with life-sized stereo graphics!

Thank you to the ESReality community for the feedback and encouragement on these Quake gaming history videos. In a meta sense, I entered my own Fear Cave on this one, and narrated. Joseph Campbell has been ascribed to have said, "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."

Enjoy your trip inside Cave Quake II!

I just bought cheap Deathadder Chroma, and it seems to be fake (hardware looks just as regular one, but synapse does not recognize it).

So my problem now is how to change dpi?

I cannot return it, so I wanna ask you guys is there any way to change dpi, if not I guess I can put my old deathadder 3g sensor in it which is already set to 450dpi.

Advice is welcome.

Haven't played in 2018.

What map / mod is this?! (3 comments)
Posted by dondeq2 @ 16:37 CDT, 14 May 2018 - iMsg
https://m.imgur.com/gallery/w9f3L

Here are all the clues I have...

The screenshots are credited to 1998, from a United Recammers video by The Immortal, made for Dukemedia / QuakeTV.

Dukemedia was partnered with Sega Gameworks at the time making the tech for e-sports competitions at local gaming clubs. Was this part of a competition mod?

In the video, the players are fighting for a single flag, which generates on the lower level, and then it’s taken and carried to the upper platforms, presumably to score points.

The level is later shown configured differently, apparently for deathmatch, with a rocket launcher and 2 rocket ammo packs on the platform where the flag had regenerated.

The players are never shown with a weapon less than shotgun, maybe that’s the default weapon in this mod. The players have to collect ammo and weapons. When killed, the weapon you are carrying is left on the map to be picked up.

The advertisements! In this level there are in-game, professional looking ads for Activision, Creative Labs, Logitech, Skittles, Mountain Dew, ID Software.

At a LAN party in Rochester, in 2015, the original server admin for Lasermine CTF put this map on for us and it was fun to play. Unfortunately, only the one smoking MASSIVE amounts of MJ (me) has any memory whatsoever of this.

What I DO remember, hazily, is that this may have been part of a larger download, or included in a pak file. The level itself MAY have a generic name (for an example, but not a serious guess, I would give a common name like “base” and say maybe it was overwritten by a later map named base, and that’s why nobody remembers this now.)

The Olympics theme and Vince M commentary used in The Immortal’s recam seem to point to the competitive nature of the mod / map in question.

How could I almost forget... the Scoreboard! This mod / map has a unique in-level dynamic scoreboard that shows all players in the map the Team Score and Game Time. If this was an episode of Antiques Roadshow, the working in-level scoreboard would be pointed out as being a unique feature adding a lot of value to this piece.

Just about the only Quake 2 mod I have seen with an in-level dynamic scoreboard is the Kick Mod. This is more complex than that.

The advertisements for FX Sports (started in 1997) and Casio Time point towards the year 1998 being an accurate date. The presence of so many company logos makes me think this was an official mod release, maybe from one of the expansion discs.

The Scoreboard would be perfect for Spectators, adding weight to the theory that this map / mod was built for e-sports competition.

I really want to move on with my life but I have a touch of the OCD and it bothers me that this piece of Quake gaming history may be left by the wayside. On another level (figuratively but NOT literally - i’m still talking about the same level) I want to play these ramps with the laser hook and my friend Mary Jane.

Any and all info, clues, context, guesses, random comments, would be greatly appreciated.

Webtools for quake admins (2 comments)
Posted by Danmer @ 10:43 CDT, 14 May 2018 - iMsg
I'd like to share some of my webtools which might be useful for quake admins.

Seed Master
The first one was made a year ago for seeding a ton of new participants of 125FPS cups. Fast and easy search using any symbols in PlusForward Rankings. Import, automatic sorting by rating and export to challonge.com within seconds. It's still used.

http://quakelife.ru/tools/seed-master/




Discord Formatter
Today I released a new tool which helps to write announcements and reports on Discord. The tool can:
- fix nickname using aliases and PlusForward Rankings
- add flags
- add discord tags
- add frequently used icons
- add stream links and casters using short names
- insert the last video link from a twitch channel
- wrap links to hide previews
- counter of symbols (to avoid 2000 symbols limit)
- save and load messages as templates

It's been over 6 months since the last elite level Quake Champions LAN tournament has played and prayers have finally been answered in Dreamhack Tours, the first stop in 2018 QC Saga. Attending are such names as United States of America DaHanG, Ukraine Xron and Australia Dandaking who will join a superstar roster of Quake players and have co-incidentally spoken to us about next weekend in France France. We sat down with the players to breakdown what competing at the top level has been like thus far and how they feel competing in the new priority team mode 2vs2 TDM. We have also gone to the effort of putting up some Points betting for this event to spice up the competition.

what is the ultimate origin of the universe before big bang? (135 comments)
Posted by i001 @ 14:25 CDT, 11 May 2018 - iMsg
god/consciousness/oneness? do you think it still exists as a backbone of our reality?

i think the word god is often misunderstood and can be described in this analogy about blind men and an elephant and everyone has different ideas what elephant is because they can't see the whole elephant and argue because their experience is based on their own interpretation of what an elephant is.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_men_and_an_elephant

i have this overall theory of god as underlying dimensionless timeless state from which everything comes including all the dimensions and possible multi-verses. meaning there is one single origin from which everything comes like vacuum that serves as space in which objects appear. i don't think god is either good or bad but rather as origin of universe and everything that is including laws of physics, space-time etc.

if you are atheist please relax, my version of god doesn't condemn you to eternal hell as i don't believe hell or heaven to be the ultimate reality of god and origin of universe etc.

"Theism is broadly defined as the belief in the existence of the Supreme Being or deities."

i don't believe in deity or dietes or that god is anything like a thinking human with super-intelect etc. for me the word god represents "source of everything" and is not some judge that judges peoples actions and requires sacrifice or adorship etc.


and to calm some blind believers that science is the end all be all of what is and isn't here is a nice article that describes all the ways in which science is manipulated by governments and corporations throughout history

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politicization_of_science

my purpose is not to incite religious wars but rather understand what god is through discussion as it helps me understand and question my false beliefs or mistakes to zero as i have no clue what's on my mind about this topic until i start discussing it here with you.

i am basically "science meets god" kind of person and i stand for scientific or at least logical explanation of what is god.

found this video on unified field theory that might be actually close to this concept of god and universe as one unified thing

It has recently come to my attention that there was a lan tourney soon. I've been doing my homework and watching twitch streams for a few days now. This game looks AMAZING and I know that I can do well in this tourney. Problem is, I don't have the game yet and since I just found out about the tournament, I haven't been able to find the cash to travel to the lan either (l don't even know when it is tbh). BUT, I KNOW that if I can get the game soon, I can put in the practice and gain the experience needed to take down some of the top teams. Below is a link to my gofundme. I would add a link to my twitch chan but I don't have a pc that can stream (i'll be adding a forum thread for that request for a handout later).

Edit: I just realized that this was a 2v2 tournament and I don't have a partner. I've increased the gofundme goal to include a copy of the game and travel for my future partner.

For those who dont know yet. The dutch player d0gb0ne died by a heart attack way too early on tuesday.
As far as I know, he was in his middle 30s and for those who didnt know him, he was a fucking nice guy.

He was also the owner of the legendary european clan arena server "Amsterdamage 4on4 1600+", which some of you probably know.

Im sure the server will be shut down sooner or later.
I already talked to some of the usual players on his server and one will probably host a replacement, which will be called "d0gb0nes 1600+" or sth like that to hold up his legacy.


Dog, I hope you rest in peace.

Festiveturtle and I are Turtle Recall. Both of us are experienced Quake Players. We have been working hard and performing well against the top 2v2 teams in NA. The tournament was announced with a month to go and we were unable to gather enough money for all of our expenses. Even though it's a little late, turtle and I will try to get to Tours. We are definitely capable of taking down any of the other teams based on our results. We both hope you consider donating to us so we can compete against the best in the world. :)

Hello everyone, I recently needed to buy a monitor, but my friend said that among the features of the monitor you should consult before purchasing it, one feature that should always be focused on is the aspect ratio of the monitor, as it will indicate the geometry of the monitor. . So, monitor aspect ratio, which one should I choose for my monitor?

New Keyboard - Zowie Celeritas 1 and 2 (2 comments)
Posted by roymagic @ 15:36 CDT, 30 April 2018 - iMsg
Some days ago, I started to notice something feels strange.
Movement in quake really felt weired and I noticed people were hitting unusual high shaft on me.

Finally I figured out my keyboard seems broken. Sometimes it doubles or triples my commands which leads to let me run or strafe straight into one direction for 1-2 secs which I dont like and fucks up my complete movement in shooter games and especially in quake.

I have an Zowie Celeritas 1 and tbh I cant really remember when I bought it. Maybe around 6 - 8 years ago? I cant tell exactly anymore.

So my first question is, is it "normal" these mechanical keyboards are done after this amount of time? I cant really remember if I ever broke a keyboard by just playing before.

Because I always was statisfied with my Celeritas 1, I decided to go for the Celeritas 2.
According to Amazon I will receive it on Thursday.
What I saw is, that zowie is using infrared technology instead of the mx-cherry technology.
Anyone here has some experience with it?

I will give you an update about it, as soon I played some on it.

Survey on pings over the pacific and intercontinental gaming (48 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 02:28 CDT, 27 April 2018 - iMsg
There is a survey going on in an attempt to narrow the ping gap between regions that could benefit from servers in the pacific. This may make it possible to have sub 100ms gaming between places such as the US West, East Coast Australia and New Zealand which would probably be of great value to communities like QuakeWorld, CPMA and Quake Live etc.
"I am trying to gauge some interest on whether a gaming service that bridged the pacific ocean and allowed for sub 100ms gaming between East Coast Australia, New Zealand and West Coast USA would be viable. In the future it could be expanded to include Japan, Guam and Polynesian Islands. West Coast USA based players would achieve around ~50ms ping with Central states being higher.
The setup of such a service would require physical servers to be hosted in a Hawaiian Datacenter, Internet connectivity with multiple ISP's (to ensure direct routing to each country) and this would come at a considerable cost.

The initial goal would be to have permanent servers for games which would benefit the most with the expansion of their player base such as the Quake series and its derivatives.

The end goal would be to allow game developers could also rent service space to give their games a permanent server in this unique location and in addition to permanent servers, a service would be offered where tournament admins could rent server time on a temporary basis for other popular games in order for players to compete in specific tournaments or events with a larger player base spanning the Pacific."
Head on over to the survey

https://quake.bethesda.net/en/news/5neso2wc6sYIIyMkwY0ikA

GREETINGS CHAMPIONS,

We’ll be deploying an update on 26.04.2018 that includes the new duo Champion: Strogg & Peeker, a new map Awoken, a new Super Nailgun vanity weapon: the Disruptor, and many quality of life improvements. We estimate the update process will take from 7AM EDT – 2PM EDT (11AM GMT to 6PM GMT).

CONTENT

NEW CHAMPION: STROGG & PEEKER

Ability Drone Strike: Strogg enters a camouflaged state and deploys his drone. He assumes control of the drone, which can fly around and shoot at players using its Hyperblaster. Using the ability again causes the drone to accelerate forward and detonate upon collision.

Passive Stroyent Cell: Gather Stroyent capsules from your corpses of his enemies that heal his wounds.

NEW MAP: AWOKEN

In the vine-choked valleys beyond Zar’s templed terraces, a monument to the Queen of Ciphers looms over what remains of the Temple of Forgetting.

Available in all modes with the exception of Sacrifice!

NEW VANITY WEAPON: DISRUPTOR

The QUAKE 3 Plasma Gun returns, upgrading your standard issue Super Nailgun with plasma nails that rapidly consume its energy… and your enemies.
