QL / cpma / warsow / xxx? (31 comments)
Posted by snezz @ 08:25 BST, 3 April 2014 - iMsg
hey guys,

in the next few months I will be having more time to play some games but just cant decide which duel fps I should start with :p
I used to play some QL last year but that was nothing serious.

Personally a shitload of competition *like QL* is not that important for me, I just want to join a serv and play some maps without hours of waiting. Is this possible in warsow and cpma or are these pretty much dead? Is there any ohter game out there?

Looking forward for your recommendations!

re: zhu dead (136 comments)
Posted by brandan @ 19:23 BST, 2 April 2014 - iMsg
no aspect of this news post was meant to reference the death of fraggle. the title of the post is coincidental similarity due to the subject matter.

death is a subject, whether or not it is taken seriously depends on the personalities of those considering the subject. because some people find death to be a serious taboo, does not mean that those who do not find it to be a serious taboo cannot use the subject as a basis for humor or informal commentary. alternatively, those who are capable of conveying and finding humor in the subject do not invalidate the positions of people who hold the subject in serious reverence.

some people called the humor bad, base, in poor taste, etc. i disagree, and i'm happy to discuss why it may or may not be humorous or funny to anybody who is interested in a real discussion. i am confident that the style and language are good, and that the subtle humor and mood below the basic shock value of death greatly counters the accusations. it is my opinion that people focused on the subject rather than the substance have blinded themselves to the quality of the writing, demonstrating more about their ignorance than my own.

it is common in the history of creative expression to provoke emotion and conflict, whether external or internal. death is a subject of drama, comedy, and tragedy. the post was carefully crafted to present such a level of absurdity on such an obvious day for foolishness that to consider it seriously would be difficult and ridiculous. such lines as:

His room had this strange smell of expired milk, but I guess that's no more.

He gripped the teat as a lover, like he was giving CPR to an injured baby bird, and he'd hum while stroking the milk free, strangest method I ever saw.

run blatantly and specifically contrary to the typical gravity awarded posthumous reflections, though admittedly even obituaries do not always follow the formats that are concerned more for the bear-trap sensibilities of the self-offending self-righteous than the emotional makeup of the deceased.

to those who used their assumption of the relationship between the death of fraggle and the death of zhu to justify their misdirected anger: you are wrong. you are wrong to assume the post had anything to do with fraggle, and you are wrong to have directed your abusive and rude comments toward me. i hope that some among you will have the integrity to apologize, but i am an empathetic man, and understand that emotionally charged outbursts later shown to be inappropriate are often embarrassing, and sometimes silent acceptance and forgiveness is socially beneficial. to those who are frightened of accepting responsibility for their rude behaviors, please be assured that i forgive you.

Community Favorite Zhu Dead At 22 (118 comments)
Posted by brandan @ 18:58 BST, 1 April 2014 - iMsg
Pontus "Zhu" Aberg, polarizing Quake Live player and ESReality community member, passed away late in the evening, Monday, March 31, 2014, at the tender age of 22. He was discovered alone in his room, a report on the cause of death has not been publicized by his family. His roommate, Milo Loden, commented on discovering his friend's body:

We weren't really friends, he didn't really get along with anybody in the house. He would stay up late hours yelling "come at me, brah" and "it's fucking zhu", among others, while we would try sleeping for work. When we would try to confront him politely, he would just ask us why his life should suffer just because we hadn't been milkringers in our youth. He was unusually quiet for two nights, and I was torn between being grateful and hopeful that he had matured, and worrying that something may be wrong. There's a period of indecision when you share a house with somebody, that you should check on them. With Pontus, that period was very large, because we tried to avoid his room. He would try to capture us on his webcam, which had tape over the recording light. My girlfriend once told me he asked her to feel how comfortable his bed was, and when she was laying down he started chatting on his webcam about her being his girlfriend. She was so embarrassed that she couldn't move. His room had this strange smell of expired milk, but I guess that's no more. He was truly an odd man, but it's sad to see death in any capacity.

Zhu, condemned by the vocal loathing of stringent anti-cheat advocates, though once a promising rising star in the Swedish Quake scene, fell deep into disgrace after a painfully long and winding path toward redemption, ultimately sacrificing his hard work with attempts at threatening and cajoling id Software staff members into permitting the reinstatement of the legitimacy of his account.

He grew up in rural Sweden, showing early signs of masterful hand eye coordination when, as nothing more than a precocious and well-spoken toddler, he would milk cows blindfolded in underground Swedish milk ring circuits. Albert Dahlgren, a retired milkringer, sung Zhu's praises:

I remember the boy (chuckles). Never seen a milk bucket so clean for my life. He gripped the teat as a lover, like he was giving CPR to an injured baby bird, and he'd hum while stroking the milk free, strangest method I ever saw. I won't lie, I sat up many nights frustrating myself to no end trying to figure it out. Never did, and maybe I'm better off not knowing. He was a good kid, we'll miss him.

Zhu's father, Gebert, raised his son to seek mastery of every task. When asked if he had ever been aware of his son's reputation in Quake communities, he responded:

He has ever been a fierce competitor, this is true. I remember the milkringing days, we cleaned up the 1997 tour. The first time I saw him perform, I was stunned and feeling a pride that only a father can feel for his first born son, but at the same time some awkward disappointment over his gentle treatment of the teat. It was then that I realized he possessed something that I lacked, some sturdiness of spirit that would allow him to succeed in the face of negativity from the crowd. Even in my shame my young son proved me his value. I love you, Pontus. I am so lost, son, why did you leave me? Who am I without you? How could I have failed you? (Wails of despair)

The post will be updated when a PayPal account for collections and donations for services is established. Civil comments will be a great benefit to his family during this difficult period.

A short movie made by Sweden myself during a period of three days, mostly to get a bit more used to Sony Vegas and its functions. And no I do not mean effect-wise, just trying to gain some knowledge. It's three minutes of pure awesomeness because yeah, it's me.

I made the entire movie in 60fps 720p, but I suck at encoding apparently so after multiple tries and cries, I uploaded the uncompressed file to youtube and let youtube do the work for me, hence the non-perfect quality and no 60fps. Enjoy it bitches.

Mice keep breaking =( ? (a bit of rage) (12 comments)
Posted by cha0tic90 @ 07:49 BST, 30 March 2014 - iMsg
Has anyone else experience very poor quality from steelseries? I have had three steelseries mice and they are all broken. I have had a deathadder that lasted for 5 years and a microsft mouse that I picked up a few years ago. Both are fine. I have had 3 steelseries mice all are defective or broken. Steelseries kana keeps disconnecting randomly, sensei keeps disconnecting randomly and crashing all my other usb ports. And the rival works with the old firmware but has a delay and the delay is fixed when I update the firmware but then the mouse skips like crazy to the right and upward. Why can't I get one steelseries product that works. Well anyway is it normal for mice to be this unreliable or is it steelseries mice? Just want to know if I need to search high and low for the more reliable and highly rated mouse or just get one that isn't steelseries?

The Importance of Lore in Arena FPS (79 comments)
Posted by PsychicTurtle @ 18:23 GMT, 29 March 2014 - iMsg
Is it just me, or does it seem like most developers brush this feature under the rug when it comes to Arena FPS? Every title to date has had a sub-par story, little to no explanation of setting, and extremely one dimensional characters.

I believe that a solid game universe is important, and although it won't save a shitty game from being shit, it adds to the immersion, and gives the game depth and substance. With a few upcoming titles I'm not seeing developers try to address this. I know it's difficult with their budget, and so they decide to focus completely on gameplay. But is it so hard to hire a competent writer?

When I play quake, so many questions go through my head: Where am I? Who are these people I'm fighting? Why do I have to kill them? Who the fuck is that obese, metrosexual biker with his gut hanging out? The game has no context! And I know about the whole "The greatest fighters in the world must fight to the death in arena" shit, but that horse has been beaten to death.

What I'm saying is, the Lore (including the setting, timeline, story and characters) shouldn't be relegated to an afterthought. It would be cool if we could lose ourselves in the game world, connect with characters, and laugh at witty dialogue. Many gamers like this kind of thing.

TL;DR I'd appreciate it if Arena FPS' had better lore and universes. It makes it immersive, and can appealing to new players.

Can't change the polling rate on my WMO (7 comments)
Posted by promyy @ 14:51 GMT, 29 March 2014 - iMsg
Hey guys.

I've been trying to switch from IMO to WMO today, but whenever I try to switch the polling rate on the WMO it just stops working.

Whenever I change the refresh rate and restart my PC, the WMO is dead and will no longer work in the same USB port. When I plug it into a different USB port it works just fine. The USB docks are 100% okay. They do not die after restarting the PC, the IMO still works fine in the very same USB ports.

Now, the WMO just won't work in any of the 3 ports I've tried, and I have no idea what to do, how to make my WMO work in those again or how to change the polling rate correctly. Note that I've been using the WMO before on 1000hz and it was fine, the problem started just today after I've plugged it back in.

Is there any way to get the WMO to work in the ports that I've been trying to change the refresh rate in? Or if not, how do I set it so it would work correctly in a different port?

edit: adding to the story:

After plugging and unplugging it a few times I've noticed that while plugged in, the WMO is listed on the USB devices list as a ghost with no name and just the "filter on device" set to 'yes'. Whenever I uncheck 'filter on device' the WMO is back to life on 125hz but still there's no way to set it to 1000hz. How to I get around that?

I hope it will be enough to absorb the rapid expansion of their service (especially in Europe) but at least it shows they're going in the right direction.

WMO - left click sticking? (5 comments)

I've managed to get hold of another WMO after not using one for about 5 years or more. It's a second hand one that a friend got me for free from his offices. I've found that the left click seems to stick 'on' every ten mins or so just for a few seconds. Anyone got any advice as to how to rectify?
P.S. I've used Deathadder, Abyssus, Kana, Kinzu, Zowie EC2 Evo in the past 5 years and switching back to this WMO is sooo nice :) they're just so good! :)

Occulus bought out by Facebook (2 comments, locked)
Posted by JDub @ 03:40 GMT, 26 March 2014 - iMsg
For about 2 Billion:

At first I was pissed. Still kinda am that our lord and savior J.C. is working for scum... but then it hit me: Whatever happens, even if the occulus rift doesn't add up to its now 2 billion price tag, facebook has the kind of money to buy ID away from Zenimax and set it free.

Facebook has the kind of money to finance Quake. When you bring a 2 Billion dollar device to market having a killer app is necessary. So what if it costs $50 million to develop? Oh my god someone make a business case and translate it to silicon valley speak.

Facebook acquires Oculus Rift (48 comments)
Posted by !nFerNo @ 22:08 GMT, 25 March 2014 - iMsg
Facebook announced that it has made a take-over deal with Oculus VR, the company behind the Oculus Rift. Facebook would buy the company in the second quarter of this year for 2 billion dollars, of which 400 million cash and 1.6 billion in shares that currently have that value. There will also be a bonus of 300 million if certain goals are met.

Marck Zuckerberg says that Facebook is preparing for the future with the take-over. He's calling mobile the platform of today, while virtual reality could be the platform of the future. "After games, we're going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences" says Zuckerberg, "Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face -- just by putting on goggles in your home". Oculus VR is very happy with the deal and they are determined to create the best virtual reality platform available.

Exit Oculus Rift?

Afaik in source enginge games the games sensitivity can be disabled by noforcemspd maybe some more commands. the ingame sensitivity can be disabled hence the windows sensitivity will be used solely. now when i do a 360 in counter strike source and measure how many cm it takes i have the windows desktop pointer speed in a 3D environment is that right ? after that i go into all other games where ingame sensitivity can not be disabled like in source engine and set sentitivity so that a 360 takes just as many cm as in css before, acceleration at all times disabled if possible of course. i hope you get what i want. will it work that way? if not tell me please how.

New NA League doing game voting (5 comments)
Posted by sulit @ 07:24 GMT, 25 March 2014 - iMsg
Ok this is kind of a long shot but there is a startup company called Iron Gaming which has provided production setup for other medium/small US based LANS (AGL, Gamers 4 Giving, ect ect).

They have hosted a couple of LANS in chattanooga TN and have paid out the winners.

Any way they are currently having a vote for one Console game and one PC game for their "Community" supported games. They have $50k of their own investments for the prize money of their community supported games.

They are aiming to do a season with online qualifiers and LANS which all lead up to a big final at the annual Rooster Teeth Expo in Texas this summer.

So here's the long shot, they haven't considered Quake Live since probably no one has brought it up to them yet. WE CAN GET THEM TO CONSIDER QUAKE LIVE IF WE GET ENOUGH VOTES. The other PC games they are considering for their community supported game are mostly mobas. Quake Live Duel or 4v4 can have an advantage since both game modes require less resources to run compared to the 5v5 moba games.

Vote now here. QUAKE LIVE is not on the list, you have to manually type it. We have till April to get as many votes as possible to get considered.!voting/c1wyl

Looking for a Deathadder shaped mouse. (20 comments)
Posted by Dreadful05 @ 00:43 GMT, 25 March 2014 - iMsg
Hello, I've been lurking on the site since around the first BST mouse thread. Since I've been in need of a mouse replacement and that one seemed promising.

Since that mouse is likely not to happen I decided it's finally time to look at other options and upgrade my mouse. I'm look for a decent mouse around $50, but can up to $70 if needed that's shaped similar to the DA. However I'm open to other options I palm/fingertip grip the DA.

I would like to stay away from Razer products since the two mice I've bought from them have had issues within the first year. Their product support was awful and they didn't honor the warranty.Also upon finally taking the mouse apart to try and figure out the cause of my issue. I discover that some of the screws were never installed.

Reading around the Zowie FK seems to get good reviews, but are their any other mice I should take a look at before ordering the Zowie FK.

TL:DR Mice recommendations other than the Zowie FK or should I just order it.

Russian democracy and media why so bad?! (94 comments)
Posted by Ur1ch @ 22:29 GMT, 24 March 2014 - iMsg
While discussing the Crimean case we touched many times Russian propaganda, Putin's dictator regime, lack of democracy etc. Why so many people in Russia support Putin's dictate and will do so? I'll try to throw it down...

I'll start with democracy. First of all there is no a single country in the world with pure democracy - each one differs in number and type of limitations depending on internal and foreign factors. The closest one to democracy is probably Switzerland, but anyway the head power I'm sure is cheat protected. The level of political and
economic development should be very high for this.

The problem is that this type of democracy can't work for big countries - it makes them too vulnerable. Why so? For instance freedom of speech (media, free protest actions etc) will give any enemy or interested side the perfect instrument and access to make any impact on people thoughts like forming a counter government movement in a very short time.

So why lack of democracy? - Its safety of government, people and country's integrity from enemy impact mostly.

Why strong president with "dictator" features? Again its less vulnerable. In 1917 sissy Russian Nicolaj II lost to democracy... In 1990 sissy USSR Gorbachev lost to democracy... Look at Ukraine what leads to country's death - weak presidents in 2004 almost lost it, now weak Janukovich lost again to democracy, now finally,
the country is already dead.

What is propaganda? Instrument to manipulate people's mind through democratic holes - tv, internet, educated protesters leaders... Defensive and offensive.

Look at Ukranian media and Russian. Russian media is controlled by government, Ukranian is all private either by
oligarchs or by grants from US democratic institutions which Nooland mentioned.

Russian media lie and ban internet pages as a protection measure from democracy which can be seen now in Ukraine.
Because we also have right opposition which is stronger from time to time and waiting for proper moment to do the same.

Ukranian propaganda is offensive, the president can't do a shit to change people's minds. In 20 years people started to hate a friend, love enemy and justify radical nationalistic organisations which just 60 years ago killed thousands Russians, and a hundred thousands of Polaks etc... now they are called heroes, peaceful protestors.

To sum it up...
Very carefully democracy can work in highly developed small countries with high education level. So that no one from outside could use vulnerable channels to fool people.

If a country is big and has a big population. Or just low development level and education - use more authoritative closed models to protect from impact otherwise you will die. So you can accuse Russia, but otherwise we were already torn apart.

What about our genious inventor of this fake democracy model - United States? Its just a visibility of democracy, the elite in charge of decision making hasn't changed there for like 100 years... Advertising and injecting this democracy to controll other countries and letting people think that its freedom. Have a president for 4 years which is not enough to build anything and think that we do so aswell.

And if a country closes its holes - then the leader is called dictator and no human rights and give freedom and etc... sanctions - then people accuse its government, agents organise takeover if not - ah we found terrorists there or chemical weapons or whatever... and use force.

What the most genious is that people really and strongly think that its the only right way :( be more educated or we will die.

FPS training flash games: do they work? (89 comments)
Posted by G3tL@GD @ 11:55 GMT, 24 March 2014 - iMsg
I just recently made this account to create this thread. I wanted to spark discussion; I wanted to see opinions. For those of you who haven't an idea of what we're supposed to discuss, let me introduce to you one of the first ever creations to grasp this concept: - Designed for competitive gamers in mind, we can see a series of games, each with their own specific purpose. These training tools serve to improve one, but what is possibly the most important aspect in FPS games: Aim. That's how you get frags, yes. Point-and-click. So very simple, yet so very difficult to master. Quite a wonderful thing.

But say, what's the first to have grasped this concept, you ask? I believe it's a game called Reflex, it's quite the ancient discovery. You can find it by searching "Reflex Intelore" in just about any search engine. If you deem this belief of mine wrong, feel free to make adjustments. I'd like to know of the actual origin, if such a thing exists.

Many misconceptions have been pounded into the minds of many a gamer, to speak of this specific topic. It's truly unfortunate, how these plebeians couldn't spare a single thought as to the possibility that does exist; that perhaps, these games DO actually improve our aim.

"ingaem sens diffurent frum window sens, gey" "fps gem r 3d, dis shet 2d, waw" "onley way 2 impruv eim = play reel gem like child online daycare (CoD)" "flash gems r gud onley 4 impruv flash gems"

Such blatant idiocy has been repeated just about everywhere, much to intellectual thought's dismay. I find it quite irritating that these mindless drones are incapable of making their own conclusions. Do not repeat what has been already said, if improved conclusions exist, so to say. If you cannot think for yourselves, please do the world a favour by not exposing your blatant incapability of thought procession; it might help to improve our intelligence standards by a tiny weeny bit.

To understand how these games work, you must first understand how aiming works. I wish not to delve deeper than this; I fear that this community and its inhabitants' brains might explode due to the sheer complexity of the text that does lie before their eyes; I am not that cruel.

So let us just summarize: Aiming is a coordinated movement that consists of the brain and our main instruments (the arms), cooperating in such a way that the main process is done to the furthermost extent of the individual's mental and physical capabilities.

Don't get confused, now. We're only getting started. With that simple summary, we only have so limited information. But we shall analyse: what are the factors that affect the aiming process? To know of every factor, I'd suppose one must have a very advanced understanding of how the human brain and body works. But even an illiterate fool like me can make this simple conclusion: it is not only muscle memory that comes into play. Some very stupid people seem to proudly hold this belief. IN-GEM SENS l0l0l0l0l

A user of these training tools told me that these games can accelerate the development of muscle memory. I'm too foolish to actually understand how this works, but it does seem like a good possibility. Perhaps it's because you practice the aiming movements that are incorporated into muscle memory? I don't really know. But if this is true, then maybe it could work more effectively if these training games had a fullscreen feature. That would make for more realistic progress.

So I'll end it at that. I'd like to hear what this community has to say. Oh, and please, try to put some thought in your posts. k thx bai

Three of the most popular choices. I'd say aimbooster is the best out of all of them. It has the customizability every serious gamer should be looking for. You can download it as well.

Professional players use these for a reason. Good reason.

Userscript for top 10 race scores (25 comments)
Posted by PredatH0r @ 23:37 GMT, 23 March 2014 - iMsg
This user script adds a "/top10" command to QL, which displays the top 10 race scores + your own.

Use "/top10 ." (with a dot as parameter) to get the scores for the current map.
Use "/top10 mapname" to get the scores for the specified map.
To bind the command to a key, use: /bind P "top10 ."

The script uses the same setting for the output method as Display script, which lets you choose between echo, print, say_team and say.

To install the script, you'll need QLHM.
Enter the script number 424643 in the text field and press Enter.

The Tournament format which has been used for so long now gives you quite a predictable affair each time. What if instead we used the "styles make fights" scenario for quake where matches are picked before hand so instead we have 8 hand picked matches unrelated to each other where 2 players are picked on the basis that there two styles will complement each other and make for an interesting fight?

Guismo12 interview by Esportactu (23 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 16:10 GMT, 22 March 2014 - iMsg
Hello everybody. Here's another interview from Esportactu featuring France Simon "Guismo12" T., one of the best French player at the moment, to whom we wanted to ask some questions about the NationsCups with the CTF grand final approaching. Guismo12 talks about France defeat against Russia in the TDM final, the current state of the French team and player base, the CTF and CA competitions, and that's about it.

Here is an extract of the interview:
France Esportactu: What’s your opinion about the atmosphere of the event? We know that it's not really the first time bad words are exchanged between l1nkin, winz and the Russians… What do you think of it ?

France Guismo12: It’s part of the show ! No, I’m kidding. Every player has his behavior and nobody likes to lose. Sometimes there are uncalled-for words in those cases, it’s not the best example of fair-play that we could see but well, it’s not that serious. The players know each other well and everything is forgotten :).

MotoGP 2014 kicks off tomorrow (30 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 11:06 GMT, 22 March 2014 - iMsg
The 2014 season kicks off tomorrow with the first official race taking place in Qatar Qatar. Even though Lorenzo "threatened" to leave Yamaha and join Ducati Corse team, the teams remain largely unchanged for the top contenders. What are you predictions for this season? Young Spain Marquez beating the old legends or ending up in the dirt? Does Italy Rossi still have what it takes to take the podium? In other news, Spain Espargaro is showing some great riding skills although times will probably drop a lot in qualifiers and race. He even managed to drop a whole second in Free Practice 3.

Will the history repeat itself with Ducati's riders mopping the floor on straights with Italy Dovizioso reaching a top speed of 348km/h (216 mph)?

I'll be adding stream links for today's Free Practice 4 and Qualifier #1 / Qualifier #2

I could probably set up some fixtures or more likely polls if there's enough interest

How to save a drug addict? (107 comments)
Posted by lewl @ 12:17 GMT, 21 March 2014 - iMsg
Yesterday I lost all hope for my friend who has been an addict for the past 5 or 6 years. Or 13 years. I don't know where to draw the line of addiction. He has always been a substance abuser ever since we were 15 years old. I remember seeing him sitting at a bus stop drinking beer alone on a weekday when he was supposed to be at school. He had gotten a brown paper bag for his drink to put over even though it's not illgeal here to drink at public places. Or maybe it was because he was underage. We grew up listening to rap so he had always glorified the "getto lifestyle". The behaviour was always there, it went in cycles and every cycle was worse than the one before. From alcohol to weed, then psychedelics to pharmaceuticals (benzos and opioids), to opium, heroin and buprenorphine.

Last night I learned that he had started to IV heroin. He mentioned he was going to rehab, but only to get medical quantity and quality of opioids (replacement therapy, methadone etc.), because he is tired of the running and hustling for a shitty high. And then he told me about the needle. It used to be his last scrap of pride, that he hadn't gone for the vein. I think you can tell the level of addiction by the dignity and pride the addict has for his actions. He doesn't try to hide his actions anymore, he is not ashamed of anything and that's why I think he has lost all hope for a recovery. I know guilt and shame create a vicious cycle, but there has to be a better alternative than accepting the fate of a junkie.

He's been to rehab twice before. Once at an official facility and once he did a self organized retreat under relatives' supervision. They failed obviously. He has OD'd a couple of times after which he's had a "never again" moment, but those moments never last. Now I don't know if he ever wanted to quit, or just said so to make his life easier. I've learned throughout years that he has a very strong will, and he will do anything and everything to get his will through, I just wish he would like to do something else with it than get high. He will say anything to persuade people and I have gotten used to his constant lies and half truths so I don't take them personally. Besides I think those lies are more for him than others, to make him feel better about himself and assure everything is okay.

I would like to know why or how a person becomes a junkie. Is it in the genes or the upbringing? I can't find a reason in his life for these actions. He's had a good childhood. Academic middle class family with loving parents. His parents have always been more free spirited and understading than the average but still my friend is about to hit rock bottom if he isn't already there and to make things even worse his little brother is on the same path. Should they have been more strict? I know my friend and his parents sometimes went head to head, but my friend always prevailed, that's how strong his will is. Is it because living is too easy and nothing feels like anything? No challenge, no glory? What draws a person to downers and opiates? I have never understood the use of other drugs than psychedelics or uppers.

In a way my friend has been gone for the last 5 years, it's just now I realize he maybe gone forever. The glimpses I've seen of the old friend have kept my hopes up. The odd day that he hasn't used anything or decided to use amphetamines to cover that he's not the slow and slurred druggie. In recent years our conversations have mainly consisted of his descriptions of different kind of highs, good substance combinations, optimal dosages and other meaningles and trivial shit. He's not a person anymore, he only has one thing in mind and can't really talk or relate to anything else. He's a zombie, he is performing a mental suicide every day.

How can I convince him that a drug free life is a better solution? I have tried to give him space and autonomy, I don't like to patronize and I think everyone has the right to decide for themselves, but this is going too far. How can I in this day and age of individualism and relativity rationalize for him that there are better solutions for living? That there are still things considered right and wrong. I don't know if I am expecting to get any meaningful answers here, but I felt compelled to write about this. Maybe it serves as an eulogy, the end of a chapter.

I want to say "RIP", but a part of me still wants to believe there is hope.

Is there any way to change the position of player names when you have your crosshair on them? I know there's an opacity option but it's still really distracting if I have it on.

I was wondering how to learn to shoot those tiny gap shots where you see your enemy for 0.1-0.2 seconds and found this game:

I'm around 0.25ish. People, who can get those gapshot done (like in Furious Heights after entering the teleporter to mega) what's your score on those?
