3D Combat? What is this.... (1 comment)
Posted by storm @ 21:53 CDT, 14 June 2015 - iMsg
Maybe you guys can help me out with what I'm trying to describe. The reason I really like vQ3 movement and physics / damage knockbacks etc is because it feels and reacts how I would expect them to. I don't know if this is due to me being so familiar with vq3 style. But when I play games based on cpm or Reflex style, everything feels so 'angular' and less three dimensional.

If you fire a rocket at the feet of an opponent in vq3, theres like 100 different ways that model is going to react...and it's all so subtle. Where as in cpm or Reflex, it kind of always chips you up in the air for an easy rail finish where you're powerless and feel helpless. Which makes it feel kind of limited, less subtle and 'angular' in my mind.

Does anyone else think about this in a similar way?

What's the important thing in your life? (93 comments)
Posted by mray557 @ 13:11 CDT, 14 June 2015 - iMsg
I stumbled upon a quote today in article written by my friend Cal Newport, a graduate of MIT, he wrote "Warren Buffett On Goals: If It’s Not The Most Important Thing, Avoid It At All Costs" What it basically is that one of his employees were having difficulties with his life so he gave him an advice. He told him to write down 25 most important things and forget everything else. Now I want to ask you, would quakelive be one of your 25 things you'd put down on the list? If so, why?

Amazing mobile defrag-like game -CUBLAST (16 comments)
Posted by donka @ 09:27 CDT, 14 June 2015 - iMsg
Discovery of the year!

You guide a ball through a map through jumps and tricks to completion. Simple , yet enamoring design and high-quality production. Perfect product with great gameplay.

I think a lot of people would LOVE this game here, because it's somewhat on relative terms with defrag - execute perfect runs in faster time. Some tricks and map hacks involved.

It also has scoreboards and while they are pretty competitive, people from here probably would take some top spots on weekly ranks easily .

Find it on android and windows stores

[FS] BenQ XL2430T 144Hz - UK (7 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 07:45 CDT, 14 June 2015 - iMsg
Hi all,

I have an ‘as new’ BenQ XL2430T which has been used since around January. Boxed with all cables etcetc. It also has extremely low latency thanks to Instant Mode and also the optional BenQ blur reduction mode which is pretty neat. I’d put it as being the best 1080p 144Hz monitor on market at the moment, the stand is probably my favourite part as it’s metal and ‘thin’ so it doesn’t get in the way.

Here was my review of it (purchased myself):

I’m looking for £225 delivered, but will take offers. Cut £20 off the price if you can pick up from ‘Leicester’ area. If picking up I’ll give you free stuff from my collection of random crap that I can’t sell like a mouse or something. I have all warranty information should anything go wrong.

Cant play game that use EAC on Test Mode (7 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 21:13 CDT, 13 June 2015 - iMsg
I just bought this zombie survival game which is incredibly addictive once you get in, it's called 7 Days to Die, im totally loving it, first time I get entertained with a videogame in ages. Anyway, the game uses this sort of PunkBuster thing called EAC. The problem comes when I have Test Mode enabled so I can overclock my mouse to 500hz. EAC doesn't let me play with Test Mode on...

I have found a workaround which consits on doing this every single time I boot Windows so I don't need Test Mode enabled to run at 500hz:

As you can see it's a pain in the ass.

Is there any way to automate this, or just any way to make EAC work with Test Mode enabled?

This is it, YouTube is launching its dedicated gaming platform.

YouTube (Google) wanted to buy Twitch at some point, but it was Amazon who got top bid.
And instead of backing off, Google transformed YouTube over the past year to create what could potentially be a serious contender.

The service will launch this summer in the US and the UK, other locations will be announced at the upcoming E3.

Som1 interested in a Razer DiamondBack? (9 comments)
Posted by Lw)f @ 08:27 CDT, 12 June 2015 - iMsg
Hello everyone,

I found back my old Razer DiamondBack Plasma Blue Edition 1600dpi and Agilent A3088 Sensor, which I would like to sell. It would basically need another set of pads to go rocking another couple of years! I still have the original box + pilot etc....

I fixed the cord disconnection problem and cleaned it up a bit (inside + shell). If i remember correctly it is a mouse that is a bit researched and i would have 3 little questions:

- Which respectable price should i aim at?

- Is there some special platforms for old discontinued mouse to sell or ebay will do?

- Which Gen is it actually (i think it's a 3G but not sure)?

Thanks in advance for your help ;p .

PS:(if it is useless to sell it, I may sacrifice it for a frankenmouse in a g500 shell if it is even possible and offer a good compromise)

PS2: Hope to see mouse pro h8m3 delivering!

USB 3.0 + Gaming Mice (5 comments)

Since I built my PC in 2014 (first build since 2006), I had my Deathadder 2013 + Corsair K70 in the USB 3.0 ports. Recently I read up on it, and most advise to use USB 2.0, since USB 3.0 causes issues and what not. I plugged my keyboard & mouse into USB 2.0 ports, and went in game (CS:GO), and noticed it felt like I lowered my sensitivity by 25-30%. Is this normal?

another "need advices to improve my rox" (100 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 18:14 CDT, 11 June 2015 - iMsg
So, yeah, my rockets are trash. And I want to improve it so that's why I'm asking you guys for some advices on how to use the RL in the most efficient way.

My shaft is god-like, I mean, after a lot of practice I finally managed to get almost (95%) to my old shape where basically nobody could outshaft me. There are probably only 1 dude that can beat me LG vs LG, his nick is Fragsau, this guy is fucking scary tbh. But for the rest, even the most skilled shafters can't out-lg me, even with my 38% overall acc I beat anyone cause of my dodges and my long experience with the LG.
BUT, yes, there's a BUT, like I said, I just DON'T feel confident while using the RL, any good RL player beats me in rl vs rl situation, and considering the fact that I play mainly 2v2 CA these days, I can lose to lesser opponents only cause my RL is trash and also cause in 2v2 CA is A LOT about the RL. There's not much room for +b shaft :). So sometimes I feel hopeless and it makes me rage :D.

I need any kind of advices concerning the RL usage really, anything would be welcome, from config tips to aiming tips etc... Pls, help me! :D

Quake 4 Rebirth (18 comments)
Posted by 1945 @ 07:38 CDT, 11 June 2015 - iMsg
so, looking at a really bland dm scene was really wondering if q4 style game with modern looking engine and graphics could win back some of the audience of the modern dm scene, i think for startresters a q4 sale would help a lot as the game is pretty much the same price as modern games on steam or just half the price or idk, but i really look forward to steam sale to grab a copy to play with some bots in q4max at a slower pace, what bothers me the most about quake scene is that not only there is so few people playing, but mostly becuase the few people that are left on the servers are the hardcore veterans who constantly strafe and have aimbot like accuracy, just a little less frustrating than a round of cs 1.6 were almost every server has someone with an aimbot. what if we could create at least servers with some coop against bots like l4d or something that would at least bring down the skill ceiling for regular mp matches so it wont be an instaownage on public servers. the reason i dont like such hardcore people on public is that many peoples skills go down considerably with age and i no longer can play on the same skill level, wehere as before i could at least break even now i am so frustrated i down even want to get into details why i get the last place almost in any mp quake match.

i'd like to know your thoughts on this FPS that has become my passion; if any of you play it, if you tried it and didn't like it, anything you got.

Blacklight Retribution.

i'm not looking for buddies ingame. Just curious what good players would think of this.

My deal is that i was playing QL CA nolife and still sucked at T4, never got past 1600elo, with clan and all. Then i decided to take a break because the butthurt was becoming real, and i tried a couple free games, didn't like them, then found this one and loved it.

But i can't get out of my mind the question "what would happen if Strenx or Cooller played this; would they rape everyone?", so i'd like to turn this to you, do you know this game, and what do you think of it?

(im seriously into blacklight, religiously 2 hours minimum every day, totally lost my head)

Update: Due to a lot of people PM-ing me on irc, the picking starts at 17:00 CEST and games start as soon as picking is over.

Now that the league has finished it is time yet again for some CTF action. This time around it's a one day cup instead of a month long league.

The signups are already open and you can register yourself for the cup until Sunday, 14th @ 16:00 CEST. It is also mandatory to idle in #qldrafts channel on QuakeNet. Whoever's not there when picking starts (16:00 CEST) will be removed from the cup.

Another important thing to mention is that if there is not at least 32 signups (8 teams) the cup will be canceled.

Anyone working with CPMA demos should absolutely get this: CPMA explosions fix.

Now, those builds incorporate of all entdark's changes from his q3mme repository (found here) up to January 7 (last commit date as of now).

A detailed list of changes and help for the console variables and commands are to be found in the docs folder.

To those interested: have fun with it! :-)

Demoflex Ultimate: a Reflexfps replay en (18 comments)
Posted by phgp_zEv @ 19:38 CDT, 8 June 2015 - iMsg
Demoflex ultimate builds onto our initial release of Demoflex, enhances its user experience, and adds functionality which arguably makes Demoflex ultimate the most advanced demo / replay environment ever made. Before approaching Demoflex ultimate, we went back and questioned which functions did, and did not work in our previous release. We referred to the comments and feedback provided by the reflex community which makes us feel secure and excited to tell you about a few changes and updates in more detail.

To ensure a sustainable solution for years of movie making and replay analyzing to come, we quickly realized that the visual framework and the user interface of our previous release had to be fundamentally changed. Movie making tools such as After effects, and Premier Pro influenced the grid of Demoflex Ultimate in a positive way. We wanted to support every resolution from 4k down to 480p which only was possible by building a modular non-static user interface which scales accordingly. The Demoflex Ultimate user interface is split into three sections. The Replay section, the Edit section, and the Movie export; section. These sections can be scaled individually with-in the Demoflex UI which can now go full screen, snap to corners, and be scaled to whatever resolution the user chooses. Having this visual backbone will allow us to implement updates quickly which will be presented to you internally ( when available ) with a notification. So you will never have to go searching for build numbers. This also makes it easier for us as we know we have done everything to keep you on the latest build.

Another fundamental change is the introduction of the Movie export section. It was hard for us to decide what functionality really made sense to implement when handling large image sequences produced by Reflex, as there are sophisticated solutions to handling these such as the two applications mentioned above. What pushed us to implement this tool-set was our view, on what input files a movie maker would prefer when moving into their movie production application of choice.

Demoflex Ultimate is a collection of ideas and influence by prior movie making tools and the Reflex community in one environment. It was made to allow an increase of the games reach, by creating external media and enabling quick analysis of Reflex replays in an optimized environment. We are very excited to release Demoflex Ultimate and believe you will love it once you have become farmiliar with the extensive capabilities that are now available to you.

Things to look forward to in future updates:

- World wide demo upload and sharing through ( Demos directly into your demoflex app )
- Custom fragmessages, colours, and fonts
- Various video / animation scripts
- Custom video export codec
- Demo analysis tools

Check out a video overview, more screenshots, and download Demoflex Ultimate now over at

Is it possible to learn movement with a relatively low sensitivity? If I', able to do a 180 in either direction without lifting my mouse off my mousepad is that enough? What are some good maps for just messing around to get comfortable with moving?

As for aim, any recommendations on becoming better in this regard?

Angry Joe wrecks Dirty Bomb (39 comments)
Posted by mouse* @ 09:44 CDT, 8 June 2015 - iMsg

"We know that Bronze Cards give 3 perks and different guns. I stated towards the end its not TECHNICALLY "Pay to Win". However its the drop rates & business model that pissed us off. Where you can end up getting cards you cant use in a pack that you purchased unless you spend more gold to craft them into YET MORE RNG cards (that again you might not be able to use). Also in this game you have to rely on RNG to order to get the "Perks" and "Guns" and Scopes that you want. Thanks for defending your new game, we understand your need to!! I really do. But understand our right to be annoyed by this model that is clearly built specifically for this purpose instead of normal or player selected unlocks, perks, guns and skins. I don't like it and I think its a bad system that shouldn't be duplicated in other games.
Also, In addition to spending $55 on some cards I cannot use or didnt want at all (due to the RNG). I also had gold credits given to my account, I think something like 90K, I heard other streamers were given even more, like 300K. If you only knew how much time that would take you in game to get that amount of gold, you'd see how even more of a problem the drop rates are and the RNG system actually is. You average 100-200 credits per game after a 1,000-1,500 first win of the day gold bonus, you do the math on how long that would take you to have the amount of gold I used in this video. The system pushes you to pay for the Elite Cases, and you can tell from my video what you get in Elite Cases if you do."

PB, to Take Back Q3/L from ZeniMax (15 comments)
Posted by Opus @ 09:19 CDT, 8 June 2015 - iMsg
Has this been tried before?

Below is the email which I just sent to It shaped up into a good explanation of what I wanted to say here.

How much to purchase renewed Punkbuster support for Quake 3 Arena?

This is to be a community effort, with money collectively raised by the gamers and for the gamers, in order to take back a beloved niche, completely, from the hands of corporate entities. These companies, while credited with creating a venerable and well-beloved competitive arena shooter of the highest quality, and its entire originating genre, are nevertheless unfortunately subject to conflicting business interests regarding the health of any competitive gaming scenes which are centered around older titles.

Perhaps Even Balance would consider promotional pricing, as part of a campaign to introduce and showcase community-driven, 3rd-party-outsourced anti-cheat service, with Even Balance at the forefront.

Thanks much in advance

Which site will you be using? (63 comments)
Posted by LCANT @ 05:21 CDT, 5 June 2015 - iMsg
FPS Pulse

  (view results, discard poll)
ESReality has been around longer than most Call of Duty players have been alive, but the fundamental utility of the site was progressive enough to foreshadow many modern user interfaces, and still offers a stripped down community content-oriented user experience. ESR has been a haven for competitive gaming news for many games, but over time, as more and more niche web sites became available, it was the Quake players who sort of mumbled "Eh, this is okay," and cemented themselves in place for the long-haul.

ESR users have recently been directly solicited with a few new options for community interaction, news, and editorial content geared toward fast-paced arena FPS games with the announcements of FPS Pulse and Plus Forward.

Which site do you foresee as remaining or becoming your go to source for, well, whatever it is you go the the source for?

Soma, a SCI-FI horror adventure game (5 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 08:34 CDT, 4 June 2015 - iMsg
From the creators of Amnesia, another survival horror game that doesn't rely on jump scares but rather an immersive storyline, outstanding art and atmosphere.

I loved how they dealt with Amnesia series which was less run and hide driven but more focused on storytelling.

As an avid sucker for sci-fi genre and judging from previous Frictional Game titles, I can hardly wait for this title to come out.

Has a nice SystemShock/BioShock vibe to it.
Also, I think the main character is a robot, the pixelated screen and odd height kinda gave it away


Release date:
September 22, 2015.

Suggested features found in CPMA but not (13 comments)
Posted by barrybumcheeks @ 19:20 CDT, 3 June 2015 - iMsg
Suggested features found in CPMA but not in QLive

Hi Devs,
Please consider introducing these features. All were available in CPMA for years and worked well. I played CPMA for 10 years before QLive and can testify to their utility.
Only the final suggestion was absent although it was suggested at in the CPMA documentation.

1) On the scoreboard damage given/taken in green/red instead of total dmg only.
much more informative than total dmg only. especially when new players join team.

2) In stats, total shots fired not just accuracy which is useless on its own. That way you can tell if that 60% LG is pro aim / bot! or a statistical flash in the pan.

3) Introduce the remove command (kick should be used for disruptive / abusive players only). Remove forces players to spec. Especially useful when you want players to join in teams. Kick just alienates players needlessly. Callvote remove (Player ID)

5) Maplist command which is a list of votable maps (set by admin)

6) Mapsize - maximum number of players allowed on that map (set by admin)

7) Establish a relationship between the teamsize variable and the map selected. For example if we have teamsize 5 (10 players potentially) then they are unable to select a map that is too small to accomodate them.
For example If teamsize > mapsize then map cannot be voted for and is removed from rotation and cant be voted.
Feedback appreciated.

Dirty Bomb is now OpenBeta!! (32 comments)
Posted by Glot @ 10:11 CDT, 3 June 2015 - iMsg
there we go!

If your country is not region-supported yet, you will need a VPN to activate game in steam (VPN is not needed to play it)

1. Game from creators of Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quakewars.
2. Objective based, teamplay FPS. Stopwatch mode.
3. Hipfire spread is higher than in ET, but lower than in ETQW (vanilla).
4. ~20 Mercs instead of 5 classes. with different playstyle. some of mercs are realy fun to play, some are not yet.
5. 5 Maps. tbh, not very good (some not yet finished) maps, they are playable, pretty-looking, but not very good (yet).
6. 6000+ ppl playing at the start of openBeta.
7. Not decided? - here - watch some competitive match from Final of a cup. 2 top teams playing!

oMg CTF Server(s) (52 comments)
Posted by oMg>LunatiC @ 05:47 CDT, 3 June 2015 - iMsg
Since the success of our oMg CTF Server, managed by Minobot and oMg members, we've decided to host another server.

The server was always filled and had quite some good games.
The 2 servers are now:

* oMg CTF 20 min (1) Classic (classic mode - no item timers)
* oMg CTF 20 min (2) Normal (QL steam noob mode)

I've copied over the ban/alias/admin database from the first server, so affected bans are also applied on the second server.

For people not familiar with our bot config:
The bot tracks quitters during game and it set to give you a warning when you reach a ratio of quitting. The minmum amount of games played in order for this to activate is 15.

The warning treshold is 0.58.
The ban treshold is 0.48.

The bot _CAN_ do forced balanced based on shuffle, but it's disabled, at first we enabled it, but since you all know, ELO only works for 1v1/CA. It's somewhat an indication for CTF.
So the bot can still _SUGGEST_ which players should be swapped, but please do use common sense and don't rely on the bot's suggestion alone.
(minimum difference in ELO for in order the bot to suggest a swap is currently set to 100. Default was 25)

Furthermore, to prevent aliassing cunts, I've set the minimum account age to 60 days.
Better would be 'minium time played', since that is harder to achieve than just creating an account and let it get older. (Yes, people actually do that)
I've spoken to the developer and he might change it later on.

The bots are also broadcasting the server's chat to IRC:
#omega.broadcast and #omega.broadcast2.
Do mind that everything you say in those channels, is also broadcasted back to Quake Live.

At the moment there is no minium ELO required to join.

For any suggestions or complaints: #omega on quakenet.
Admins on server 1: Luna, fo_tbh, Q50, sno, aza, Lysop, Uniq
Admins on server 2: Luna, fo_tbh, Q50, sno, aza, Lysop, Uniq

List of commands (not complete):

Have fun!

Plus Forward launched (102 comments)
Posted by h8m3 @ 20:09 CDT, 2 June 2015 - iMsg
After a lot of work Austria noctis is proud to finally present, a community driven website designed to help cover all things related to competitive Arena FPS.

As a project, Plus Forward started about 2 years ago on a much smaller scale out of the desire to create a coverage platform for QuakeLive TDM. With the cancellation of the second Prague LAN and the general trend of inactivity in clan based QL TDM it was decided to expand the scope of the site to also include other games, and modes, whilst continuing to add more and more features.

As is expected from a news website Plus Forward provides various post types, and categories to help structure the content contributed by users and admins. The different post types can be found in Site Guide along with a lot of other information about the site and its usage.
