DIABOTICAL IS ALIVE (5 comments)

Please be honest with me ESR. On a scale of 1 to 10, how mad are you guys that diashitical got killed off by QC? I mean ESR was shilling hard for this garbage, it was the last bastion of "classic afps" (aka clones of boring af qlive) but in the end the game you guys hate the most (QC) totally owned diabotical. Your petty cries for "abilities" didn't change a thing lol. 2017 QC is still going with all the top pros, a fun to watch pro league and a decent playerbase with fast queues. Meanwhile you cannot find a single game in 2020 dialolical LOL it is dead and it got murdered by the esr's arch-enemy = the QC rofl you guys have to be seething

czm solves subconvexity problem, related to Riemann hyp. (21 comments)
Posted by son1dow @ 18:23 CST, 13 January 2022 - iMsg
United States of America Paul 'czm' Nelson, Quake legend, CPL and QuakeCon champion has solved the subconvexity problem, a problem two steps removed from the Riemann hypothesis. The Riemann hypothesis is one of the most important unsolved problems in pure mathematics and if solved, would help us know more about prime numbers, which are important in all manner of areas including basic cryptography.

In a paper posted in September, Paul Nelson of the Institute for Advanced Study has solved the subconvexity problem, a kind of lighter-weight version of Riemanns question. The proof is a significant achievement on its own and teases the possibility that even greater discoveries related to prime numbers may be in store.

Its a bit of a far-fetched dream, but you could hyper-optimistically hope that maybe we get some insight in how the [Riemann hypothesis] works by working on problems like this, Nelson said.

He wrote two papers, one in 2020 and one in September of last year that put together solved the subconvexity problem.

It's too bad nobody that is actually creative has given AFPS games a try. Quake Champions is Quake 3, Diabotical is Quake 3, and right now on Steam and elsewhere there are at least 10 Quake clones on development, and yet none of them looks promising

Posted by lmx @ 05:30 CST, 12 January 2022 - iMsg
Cyberfrags is a super-fast arena/movement shooter, with loads of guns and lots of ways to move REALLY fast. Since the CF community is still small there aren't many servers floating around, so feel free to hop into the discord and we'll double-jump into a game with you!

Movement-wise its a mix between Quake & Titanfall, but faster. ( including Walljumps.)

PSA Stay Away From Q3Retro (Admin cheating with proof) (3 comments)
Posted by FPSRH @ 21:11 CST, 11 January 2022 - iMsg
Hello everyone,

This will be long winded and I apologize, there is a lot to cover.

I go in game by Rehab and I like to think I am an experienced 1v1 afps player. Recently I decided I wanted to get back into quake3 which turns out was a horrible decision.

I had been playing and really enjoying OA and was pointed to the q3retro community. I love q3 1v1 so it seemed like a no brainer. I first dabbled in Nov, but really started playing about Dec 30.

I joined the discord, played some 1v1's, and started to get to know people. I talked with several admins, played games with them, and helped them with 1v1 maps and settings to improve q3retro. All seemed to be going well.

This changed while I was playing against "pennywise" who was an admin and decided that I was hitting too many prediction rockets. I was banned mid game for wall hacking without anyone even seeing my pov and with no demo evidence. This raised some red flags immediately. If he had asked I record our games and provide the demo, I would have happily done so. I have since set up autorecord.

I was able to work with some other admins who realized this as a mistake and I was reinstated on Jan 3. Afterwards I continued talking with members of q3retro, playing with and helping the admins, and playing 1v1's on the retro servers with no complaints.

Fast forward to January 9th and I am playing a player named Hatred AKA Ares AKA Moster. I won the first game, and then they disconnected and reconnected immediately followed by a player who I now know was the admin ZydaneX.

This video is one of 5 games that followed, where Moster was given items he did not pick up such as weapons, health, and armor by the admin ZydaneX.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osQLfaBZJd4

In that video you can clearly see he spawned LG, went MH, RL, then immediately pillars. He is at YA at 00:10 yet some how he has a rail. This game was shared with the community and everyone determined he was definitely cheating. The rail at start was the most obvious, however not the only instance.

Despite catching Moster cheating, the admins were suspiciously silent or even defending him. It was about half way through Jan 10 after exposing Moster that I was muted in the discord and the following video was posted:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6HBZCFYK7k

There had been a week long campaign involving multiple admins behind the scenes to record me playing and find any instance that looked like a wallhack, piece them together in a video with no context, and frame me for cheating.

Unable to defend myself, I had to reach out to an admin via DM to be unmuted and live stream 1v1s over discord vs both admins and Moster.

Live streaming convinced the admins, however their solution was to never bring this incident up again and I must change my name as it is now tainted by them telling everyone I was a cheater for the past week. I was unable to do that as I still had to respond to the video, and I was obviously a little upset.

In the response to the "wallhack" video, almost every shot is very standard and taken out of context as short clips instead of full games. The only thing to point out is the foot step heard at 3:04 as it does not play for the initial clip leading me to believe the footage was also possibly doctored. This is the worst attempt at "proof" I have ever seen, and is simply character assassination.

At the end of this the admin ZydaneX had admitted to helping Moster cheat as he finds q3 boring and enjoys cheating more than catching cheaters. Moster also admitted to cheating. Neither received any backlash from the other admins. I ended up being banned from the discord for continuing to talk about it with interested parties.

Here are the screenshots of the admin admitting his wrong doings that ultimately got me banned on Jan 11:

Here are some taken later in the day of Jan 11 of k3lg3r the q3retro owner defending zyd's actions:

I had been active in the community for less than two weeks, caught a cheater who was let go, exposed an admin who was cheating, was frame for cheating, cleared my name, and got banned from the discord for posting further evidence of actual cheating.

The administrators help players cheat, cheaters are protected, and as a new player to the group I was framed for cheating and removed instead. 1/10, do not recommend q3retro. Has good duel maps though.

CS:GO: My Crosshair Guide (1 comment)
Posted by Rvg7D!s @ 18:34 CST, 2 January 2022 - iMsg
This guide is geared toward analyzing the components of a CS:GO crosshair, based on what some of the pros use.

Take for example, the shape of an average crosshair. Usually, you'll see 4 ends pointing outward and inward at the same time, in the shape of a T. But have you ever wondered why the t shape is so commonly used over another shape, such as a circle?

For starters, all 4 ends of the crosshair, as I mentioned before, seem to be pointing inward, thereby gravitating your attention towards the center (it's also why you might see a small gap in the middle of the crosshair). This in turn, helps you focus on centering your shots, such as a headshot.

My guess is that our minds seem to pay more attention to patterns or consistency (such as the ends pointing inward toward one direction) rather than something a bit more random (such as the same ends also pointing outward in 4 different directions). Nevertheless, this crosshair also provides a boundary of some sort by covering all directions (left right up down) given it's natural shape (or t).

There's nothing wrong with a dot crosshair though; in fact it probably provides the highest degree of parallelism with respect to your opponent's head, given it's natural shape. My main concern however (as I used to use one) is visibility and direction, meaning the dot is just there, but it does not "guide you or shift your focus toward the center, like a t-shape crosshair would. Least, that's the way I see it.

Nevertheless, I respect personal preferences, and this is just a small snippet of some of the crosshair features to look for or think about.

Full article (I wrote) can be found here: Top CS:GO Crosshairs (imo)

Lastly, if you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to share them. Thanks.
