Games like Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory? (4 comments)
Posted by subterfuge @ 11:48 CDT, 13 April 2016 - iMsg
Hello. I've been trying to figure out if there's a game like Wolfenstein Enemy Territory anywhere?

I've lately been taking some of my free time to design a total conversion for Q3A that's more similar to Wolf in terms of the scripted events and gametypes that are map dependent. Problem is, I'm not sure there are any other games that have such variation.

In Wolf, there were so many extremely diverse and odd maps, to name a few, V2 Rocket, Minas Tirith, Railgun, and my favorite of all of them, Axis Lab.

So, does anyone know of any more modern shooters with objectives that are more complex and layered than capturing points, flags, or elimination, like Wolf: ET was?

Since i like many others enjoy watching streams i felt like i needed a little programming project to pass my time.

It resulted in a small crossplatform application that works on win/osx and some linux distros.
Its main purpose is letting you select your favorite streamers, and then displaying a notification when they come online or goes offline, aswell as opening the stream in your browser or livestreamer.

I realize theres probably applications for this allready out there, but somebody might like it anyway :)

Download the beta here.

Check out the sourcecode here.

Two things I'd still like to see in QL (21 comments)
Posted by Lacceh @ 10:33 CDT, 13 April 2016 - iMsg
Two small improvements that I would still like to see in QL:
1) [x] Sound in Background toggle, so I know when the match starts while I'm tabbed out. Because these fuckers take ages to F3 sometimes. This should really be standard these days, every game has it.
2) Spectator queue for team modes. Surely it would be a step up from everybody just spamming or holding down team red/blue binds. Duel already has it, just imagine teamsize >1, and it is exactly the same thing.

Now, I know, Steam QL isn't supposed to get any more updates. But these two things would be incredibly easy to implement, IMO.
Where is Sync & Sponge nowadays? They still oversee QL on Steam and have access to it, don't they?

Ya I'm sure I could think of many more improvements, but what would be the point... these two stand out as they'd require so little effort to code, yet hugely improve quality of life.
What's on your 'wishlist' ?

HoQ CA Spring Season 2016 Round 3 Recap (4 comments)
Posted by viaIImaximus @ 12:24 CDT, 12 April 2016 - iMsg
The third round of HoQ CA 4v4 Spring Season 2016 was played on April 7th featuring four matches across three divisions. A couple of close matches played in Division 1 and Division 2 made this day very interesting for all CA lovers.

The match results are the following:


First things first. There's some bad news that involves a particular team in division 3. The team in question is Poland Dretwe Lamy, who unable to field enough players to play their games have decided to drop out of the tournament. All the matches have therefore been forfeit wins for their opponents which sees them getting 3 points each. As far as division 3 matches go, there were two played. It seems 2 Steps to Hell stepped up their game and won against Frag Emm Clan (F*E*C) in a 2:0 map win. Unfortunately, for the Because life is izi... clan life proved to be a lot more difficult when facing Loaded/Gunz. With a 2:0 win, LG are toping the group with 12 points with a close second 2StH with 9 points and [IZI A] 3 points.

Exciting things are happening in division 1 and division 2. The main event of the evening being a div 1 match between ENERG and The Northern Tribe. A match that could very well turn out to be the decider for the winner of the group. In that retrospect ENERG is in a better position as they won over tnt in a 3 map thriller, settling down on a 2:1 score. So far ENERG and tnt are tied in the number of points, six to be exact. Having Team CODIAN and whylove breathing down their necks.
Another hair pulling match was taking place in division 2 where the Team PULSE got the scalp off White Ivory. The three mapper clash proved to be a bit too much for White Ivory as they are now third in the group with 3 points. Two Denmark teams are leading the fray in this group with a tie of six points each.

This looks like to be a great CA season as things are pretty even so far. Indeed, not many matches have been played until now but some of the key ones have been and their outcomes are setting the stage for high quality confrontations.

Note: The servers used for official games MUST have HoQ gametype factories (hoq_ca) to enforce the proper CA settings. Please check the rules if you are not sure about something or contact a HoQ CA admin.

Map of Quake Live Servers (26 comments)

One more experiment.
Just as a matter of interest.

* Some names of cities are absent or replaced by names of near districts. It happens because their ip addresses aren't assigned to cities in geoip-database.

** Now the map is using another more accurate geo-ip API.

What do people think about Raptr? (4 comments)
Posted by perfect_aesthetics @ 08:05 CDT, 9 April 2016 - iMsg
Dennis 'Thresh' Fong made Raptr in 2008 and it currently has 22 million gamers on it. Has anyone used it and if so, what are the problems (if any) with it?

I personally feel that there's a big untapped potential in this kind of software for video gamers as well as pc gamers.

I'd really like to make something similar but with the capacity for you to earn credits for each thousand views you get on your videos/images that you create that can go towards discounts for games and other gaming merchandise.

Anyone here have any experience in building software and/or a company and what would you recommend for me to learn first to build a website?

I must have lived under a rock but i just watched this video (used to be presenter at carbuyer) and never knew youtube 360 existed

Click on this link as it only works in the youtube application

When I moved my phone around in any direction, it was like I was sitting in the car myself and I was totally amazed by this!

Wiill this start to catch on and be used in youtube exclusive HD films where you are 'part' of the action and can look anywhere.

I'm not sure what other uses it has, but it's pretty cool technology.

Feel free to post any other cool 360 youtube videos in this thread :)

If youre bored with Quake or would you like to try something new then I recommend you RebirthRO.

RebirthRO is a free mmorpg game and has a long history as a Ragnarok Online private server. Around since 2003, they have some of the longest lasting servers of all time.
They have an incredible Game Master Team, devoted to helping the playerbase, but one that also knows how to have fun.

Their goal is to provide a fun, balanced good time mmorpg game for a great community.

HoQ TDM Spring 2016 - Round 3 (38 comments)
Posted by xou @ 10:32 CDT, 8 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 10th of April, will see the third round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

The crash prize distribution has been settled last week, but we're reviewing it and may alter it in the near future to redirect some money to the lower divisions! You can see the details about the donators and the distribution in the google doc.

Here is the Round 3 schedule.

Round 2 only saw 5 out of 9 matches played: 4 teams handed their wildcard to the admins. And the 5 matches played were 2-mappers!

In Div1, the big dicks managed to get 4 players and defeated d4. Hungary (despite the help of feeder and dash) failed to win a map from REKT. As for Div2, last pick mercy'd the Hateful Eight twice and (B52) seemed comfortable against Onfire. The only match in Div3 put the Zombei ahead of infinity!

UPDATE: The scheduled time is apparently WRONG, this cup won't be starting until 1pm Sydney time. This is GMT +10 for anyone needing to do conversions. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The Australian Reflex community is hosting another 1v1 competition on 20:00 CDT, 23 April 2016. Come along to see fan favourites such as AustraliaUltra and AustraliaProfanum duke it out in high skill games for unspecified cash prizes!

Our main goal for this tournament is to have at least 90% less server drama! This means that we are not going to have any WA servers, so sorry to Asian players who have participated in previous cups :(

I just got around to playing Wolfenstein: the New Order and wow this game is awesome. Of course we'd love to see a revival of the great multiplayer RTCW had but I much rather have them exclude it rather than half ass it like they did in the 2009 game.

The gameplay feels great, you actually want to watch the cut scenes and it's the best Nazi killing experience yet.

P.S. I just got done playing so yeah this is very fanboyish.
