Quake Players Wallpapers (10 comments)
Posted by takesix @ 16:21 CDT, 14 September 2014 - iMsg
Sup guys, since i don't play QL after the update I decided to back to GIMP and learn a bit more about graphic design. Since I still love Quake, of course, I decided to start this thread and a series about wallpapers inspired by Top Quake Players.

First one of the series, of course, is COOLLER. You can check my work here: http://i.imgur.com/fL02SKW.jpg http://s21.postimg.org/clw1rhvn9/cooller_wallpaper.png

I really hope you'll live it, but feel free to give any kind of feedback.

Now it's where stuff gets interesting. It is not easy at all to find the raw material to do a good wallpaper, so I'd like to ask you all to post some picture that you would like to be turned into a wallpaper. Please nothe that these have to be HIGH RESOLUTION ,otherwise they're little to no use. Right now I'd love to work on some pictures of Cypher, but I'm open to anything that inspires me. Hope you will help, gl&hf.

EDIT: Almost forgot, thanks to Teen Queen and Ash for helping me out with Cooller's achievement list and some team logos.

QL hud in Q3? (17 comments)
Posted by snomo @ 13:29 CDT, 13 September 2014 - iMsg
I'd love to have the QuakeLive HUD in Q3a, do you guys know how to this?
And maybe also this menu: http://i.imgur.com/7OQYIFZ.png
But most importantly the hud. I know it's in QL's pak00.pk3 and pak12.pk3 but I've no idea on how to make Q3 load it once I've made a pk3 out of it. What's more is Quake3 doesn't seem to have a UI folder in it's pk3's. TeamArena does but not Q3..
That's the main menu of QuakeLive when it's launched completely offline.

Premium subscription is useless now (11 comments)
Posted by DonReje @ 10:29 CDT, 13 September 2014 - iMsg
After Id just removed all premium servers and only offers Pro/free subscriptions now, how do you feel about having paid for a product you literally cannot use? Well I at least bought 1 year of premium, to be able to vote my own maps... I cannot do that anymore, since there are no such servers anymore.

The appropriate thing to do here, would be to upgrade all existing premium subscribers to pro, instead of making their purchase totally useless?

Or... Shouldn't they at least offer us an upgrade discount? The difference between our current premium subscription and the pro price?

What do you think is fair? And what are you going to do about it? Ignore the fact that you've payed eg. a year in advance for a product that you cannot use and buy Pro? Or .. quit Quake and send a strong signal?

Why put QL on steam after destroying it? (44 comments)
Posted by moto1 @ 09:26 CDT, 13 September 2014 - iMsg
The steam release sounded cool in the beginning, but if you consider how the QL updates have been going it's kind of a joke

To me the whole concept of QL is "if you like Quake 3, play Quake Live", it has updates and support and more features than Q3. For casual players that's fine, but what would casuals think now?

In two months they added loadouts, changed how FFA is played, remove maps, completely change the voice over, no blood still, a new crappy weapon and new ammo boxes.

Why would a casual play a botched/screwed up version of Quake 3? They do all this work and prep for a Steam release, yet in two months they completely changed the direction and roots of Quake Live. Why do that before a release to a giant audience? Wouldn't you want some form of consistency like they had before? Two months ago a casual could play QL and be fine, but now with loadouts and a changed announcer, what nostalgia is there to appreciate? It's not the Quake they used to play, it's some updated-crappy-new version that isn't what they played before at all.

Who's running things at id/QL Project? (41 comments)
Posted by diabz @ 23:21 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
UPDATE 3: Seems more likely to be only 118.208.* and 118.211.* that are banned.


UPDATE 2: From what I understand, some dunce at Zenimax banned a whole subset of IPs.

I believe the subset is:

inetnum: 118.208.0.0 - 118.211.255.255
netname: IINET-AU
descr: iiNet Limited

Seems odd though... that they would ban most of Internode's customers from accessing Internode's Quake Live servers?

LMAO... but we know this project doesn't exactly have the sharpest minds on it now does it!


UPDATE: It's looking increasingly like a rogue Zenimax employee has banned half of Australia from Quake Live and the QL forums in an attempt to silence dissent.

It won't fucking work.




How much recompense was paid to Christopher Sabat for his contributions to the game?


$1000?


$10000?



I would've done it for NOTHING,

ZIP,

ZERO,

ZILCH,




ABSOFUKINGLUTELY FREE




And following that, the money could've been invested in another developer's salary for a couple of months.

Instead we have a "great new announcer" and, let's be honest now, NONE of the people who paid for it (the subscribers) wanted, needed or appreciated it.

Thanks again for the amazing development direction id. Dickheads.

Newb Linux question (27 comments)
Posted by skint @ 16:33 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
I'm thinking about buying an ODROID-U3 to use as a small, cheap and fast emulator thing to hook upto a TV. Now I'd like to have a nice clean menu for the emulators and came across Emulation Station which looks really nice and can be controller driven.

There are various custom linux distro's available for the ODROID-U3 that I found on a forum thread, the one I'm thinking of initially would be the 'Whisper' release which has controller support and running Lubuntu which seems quite easy to use, used Ubuntu in the past and liked it. They also have a Debian package.

So... looking at the Emulation Station site for Linux they only have a Debian file for download however theres a GitHub repository so would it be possible to install this emulator front end onto a machine running L/Ubuntu or would it only be possible if using a Debian distro and using the .deb package on the download page?

Begins In:

Quake Live sunday cups are back in town! Z Live with help from our friends in ZOWIE presents to you the ZOWIE Open Sunday Cup series. The series consists of 3 Sunday cups starting the 21st of September. The structure is ever so slightly different to what is normally used on Sunday events. There is also another notable change, the 5 map pool style has been adopted. For the player who has the most points at the end of the 3 map series, there will be a small yet valuable prize. A rare ZOWIE mousepad will be available with the winning player’s nickname printed.

FFA the concept + why is it going wrong? (30 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 09:56 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
(Updated on a sporadic basis):
What are your views?

Quite concerning all of the changes that have been happening to FFA, with the QL readiness for steam. With so many threads around these days I wanted to try to get input from FFA Lovers, and hope to get good input / ideas for the balance. Which as a mode of Quake, has been seen to be a great starting point to move into other elements of quake.

FFA is not Duel, it is not TDM, it is not CTF, however great players, come from an initial FFA background, and some do very well coming from the other way round. However, I personally think there is something fundamentally wrong with the way it is being designed at the moment. Included or partial disabled Loadout's, they change everything and the problem starts. (loadouts / map design / map size / spawn positions / focus points / timers / ammo boxes / powerup ratio / armor protection / spawn health etc etc etc.


I was really trying to find out what others thought & what suggested improvements might be better, as currently with the QL version update Sept 11 2014 is by far perfect. It has some improvements, but still I feel something is so wrong.

I have pasted in some of my thoughts, and I will update as I go along, but was interested in hearing what other players thought was wrong or right with it?

Sign petition - We want the original VO (179 comments)
Posted by miSc @ 05:53 CDT, 12 September 2014 - iMsg
PLAYERS UNITE !

In the recent update, the original voice of quake was replaced with a new one. Despite the many changes, this was the one update that stirred an outrage amongst players. The spirit, the soul of quake is gone!

Already, countless of threads have been created by hundreds players on this issue. It's obvious to all, this was a "No no". They crossed the line, and we want either the original back, or something better.

The orginal voice was done by Christian Antkow (xian), and he is considered by many - as the soul of quake.

>>>>>> SIGN THE PETITION ! <<<<<<
http://www.change.org/p/quakelive-bring-back-the-soul-of-quake

I have played quake since the very first release, and had to swallow many changes over the years. But this is where I put my foot down! Sign the petition, let's unite and force idSoftware / Quakelive to either revert the voice or come up with a better alternative.

DocPossible
I'm not known for my criticism of the devs, but this new voice is the worst thing to happen to Quake, ever. All the game play updates, all the changes I can live with. Some I've liked, some not so, but that voice has always been the link back to 1999.

yttrium
As someone else noted, why fix something that wasn't broken? The original classic voice must be returned to the game ASAP. The new voice sounds terrible in comparison and really detracts from the in-game vibe.

hrPufnStuf
The new announcer voice is completely distracting and is ruining the experience. I really liked the old one. Understand the desire to add new things like revenge and combo, but if that costs the announcer then its not worth it. whoever approved this change should be fired.

Xals_avantasia
Id Software or Bethesda could contract Antkow only to re-do the voices (and to remember old times) instead of contracting a "professional voice actor", one of the things that made me to fall in love with Quake 3 and Quake Live was that kind of "satanic voice"

I urge all who feel as strong about this as me, to spread the word and fight for the cause. I recommend we also try to get in touch with "Xian" himself, and explain to him the issue. For someone who use to be the backbone of quake, he surely must understand the importance of this. FOR gaming, FOR the players, FOR QUAKE!

New Hearth changes, and Team scores VO (3 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 17:50 CDT, 11 September 2014 - iMsg
In the new patch, they say many changes were done to the map, Hearth, like they fixed floating ammo boxes, they added a dropout at GL were they replaced 50 HP bubble by a megahealth, etc.

The thing is, when I play the map in FFA in practice, nothing of it is actually in place...

Am I missing something ?

Also, can someone tell me what is the story with this :

Added Your Team Scores / Enemy Scores in place of Red/Blue unless you're spec.
Removed red/blue scores and rank change (lead taken / lead loss) from Attack & Defend, because these events only occur at the time of other VO playing (flag taken, round over, etc).

I don't see what it does precisely...


PS : If SyncError lurks in here, thanks for the SG damage plum, much better.

EDIT : Ok, problem solved. I had to log with my pro account so that it downloaded everything correctly :).

Since the release of my previous movie - Requiem - back in January 2010, I have been focusing on graduating, which I did last June, and starting my career. Recently, I decided to dust off my old editing skills and try a little project that would not require me to spend nearly as much time on as my former movies back in the day.

It seems that there is no longer a vibrant ET moviemaking community, so I thought I would work on some videos to try and reignite some interest, since Enemy Territory is a game with great moviemaking capabilities. This time around, rather than use Sony Vegas, I decided to edit the footage solely in Adobe After Effects in an effort to try and become more familiar with the software, and I am pleased with the results.

Principium is the first of three retrospective short films, and is generally made up of footage from the very early days of Enemy Territory. In this volume, there are no in-eye frags whatsoever, although there will be in-eye frags in at least one other volume. It is not an ‘aiming’ movie, instead showing some spam frags from ET’s early days.

I have tried to improve and build upon my Camtrace3D skills and make something worth watching for everyone. Each film will be short and sweet and as they are all being worked on at the same time, so hopefully there won’t be too long between the releases of each volume.

Visually I have gone for a grittier, less saturated look in order to make it a little more 'filmic' with relation to World War II, rather than the more glossy and colourful style of some of my previous work.

Sadly, with the loss of ClanBase, there are a lot of demos with great material that will never again see the light of day.

Hey. Yesterday I fell on a game tip on QL's front page that said you could keep your jump key pressed when you take a jump pad so that it pulls you down quickly when you reach the top of it or something.

I didn't try it because I desactivated the new movement cvars, but did some of you tried it ?

The thing is, I don't think this feature was in the changelog when the last patch came out...

EDIT : Well it seems I've been missing a train or two since I didn't know this feature was implemented a long time ago. At least I have my answer now :).

Mouse choice - a massive conundrum. (23 comments)
Posted by gienon @ 09:21 CDT, 10 September 2014 - iMsg
Hello,

I know there are many threads on this very topic but my issue is so special it definitely deserves a separate one.

I have two WMOs - the white one and...you guessed it...the black one.

Here's my problem - I feel like I'm hitting better with HMG using the white one but the black one suits my eyes much more.

Please leave your thoughts and your reasons as to which mouse I should stick to because I know it's not good to switch mice constantly as I won't develop the muscle memory. And also, looking good alongside your equipment is a crucial part of the overall gaming experience.

125FPS Fake Account Debate & MORE YAYO (155 comments)
Posted by baksteen @ 06:30 CDT, 10 September 2014 - iMsg
Hello all,

After seeing some players in group B lose to this guy Razorback (brand new account, 80 duels played, 2000+ elo already) some saw their chances of passing the group decline. Seeing this upset me.

I know a lot of people might think it's not a big deal to play with a fake account, but please let me try to give you an idea of why this should not be allowed:

The main reason is the following. By using a fake account your statistics (best maps, worst maps, weapons, playstyle etc) become anonymous. The fakenicker still has all this knowledge about his opponents, and can use this to great advantage during the map picking. The fair player can only hope to pick his best map after the removals, which is NOT the strategy that you would often use while picking maps vs other fair players, as you also take your oponents weak maps into consideration.

Unfortunately it seems to be impossible to get Nico (the main 125fps admin) to realize this. Some logs:

`? just play your best maps ). razor probably is fake, but and what? he is not players of evil/cypher level, so why you care?` - Nico

Why do I care? Cause he's still good enough to beat other fair players in the groupstage, which might not have happened if he'd play on his real account. This one shows Nico has no clue about how fakenicking influences mappicking.

´bryan, we played without this stats from q1 era` - Nico

This makes me sad because he completely seems to be oblivious about the fact that with fakenicking in QL, there's still ONE player of the two with access to his oponents statistics...

So please 125fps, realize this is some form of cheating and block all obviously experienced players with less than 300 duels or so on the account from participating, Faceit had such a rule and for a good reason.

Czech Republic Zagro presents his first Quake live frag movie made in few hours. Do not expect any super effects, this is simple frag movie like the ones from the old times - fast music, little synch, 5min +- long, little fun, pure quake and nothing more :)

Downloading the HD version from google drive or webshare is highly recommended!

Win a G402 / Trip to DreamHack (NORDIC) (10 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 19:49 CDT, 9 September 2014 - iMsg
Hi all,

Compete: https://game-enough.com/

Nordic participants only.

Goal: Get +20 icons and survive. Avoid Speed Pads and walls. Speed Pads are always on the same line as +20 icons, so look for the Speed Pads in the distance. There are 3x +20 icons and then a jump, after a short while you can't get the first +20 icon after a jump, only the last two as you'll be going too fast. Pro tip: If you start missing the 2nd/3rd icons early just give up, or be superman.

I just streamed a quick attempt or two: http://www.twitch.tv/justnvc/c/5097948

A score of 1120 or above should put you in a good position for top 5 every week to win one of the mice. I managed 1163 after a few tries, you could probably make 1200 with a bit of luck and some practice. I assume my score will not be accepted because I'm from the UK, plus i already have and use the mouse anyway.

Here's my review of the mouse, it's good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HLxhpXGIEo

I just got a 2014 Razer Abyssus thingie (17 comments)
Posted by tyryl @ 17:30 CDT, 9 September 2014 - iMsg
apparently it's a mouse. I bought it to replace my old Abyssus because the clicker stopped working, yet again (no, I didn't abuse it.)

I'm not fond of it "forcing" me to use this Razer Synapse software to change DPI/polling rate/&c., but I haven't had any issues with it so far. unfortunately, it doesn't seem to let me select 450dpi, which is what I was using before? unless the very sketchy "in-betweens" are actually incremental values, I only have the option of 400 or 500.

and this doesn't translate at all to the mouse feeling I had before in Quakelive, where I was using in_mouse2, no acceleration, and sensitivity 3.5. I've had to up the sensitivity to 5+ for a similar feel. what gives? any ideas?

destress your brain (10 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 07:41 CDT, 9 September 2014 - iMsg
one simple solution is write lists, or block it all out with music. But the former gets it done.

something which might seem quite obvious to some, but others don't do enough of, and can cause moments of wtf next. list writing it is not new science, and loads do it. But get it off your brain, annotate the lists with dots or stars, underline, circle make arrows etc. Prioritise, categorise and implement. Then work through them ezee.

I say this as in gaming it can be quite straight forward and fun, and easy for some, but for others, the "technicality of the games and hardware" is quite exciting and intense. With so many different factors, configs, resolution, accuracy, strategy, cvars, m_pitch yaw relationships whatever.

Can be applied to all, wtf next, situations throughout life.

then the hard part, actually do some of them!!

PS. don't think they are done, by writing them...

Firefall Is Good For What It Says It Off (4 comments)

Firefall (http://www.firefallthegame.com/ ) is an upcoming free-to-play MMOFPS from Red 5 Studios, with highly stylized artwork and an emphasis on tactical combat. The game sets players in a world torn apart by the Melding, an energy storm that has spawned monsters called the Chosen. Players must now band together to collect resources, build weapons and vehicles, and utilize special nanotechnology armor suits called Battleframes to fight against the Chosen and reclaim the earth. Firefall is set to have PvE and PvP play, across a virtual game world spanning some ten square miles. Request your beta access over at the main website now!

[img]http://www.allthatsepic.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/firefall-beta.jpg[/img]

The game capitalizes on the "dynamically generated" missions which can take a while to generate and can bug up a lot, but I tend to take on some of the world events while I wait, world events range from your usual work as a mercenary in ARES missions all the way up to defending a satellite up link from the Chosen in zone wide skirmishes. The level up system in the game makes you feel like you are actually getting somewhere by actually adding to your appearance as you rank up, not to mention beefing up your stats.

New POV video of UT4 at Epic Games USA (168 comments)
Posted by _agu @ 16:43 CDT, 8 September 2014 - iMsg
Here is a video of Hypno aka Gaspar from Portugal playing the pre-UT4 against xios. In resume, Epic Games invited a bunch of players to go to their head-quarters to help the developers of the game. Guys like Carmac(the polish one) are there also to help them.

The link: http://www.twitch.tv/unrealtournament/b/566212309

New link updated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UIm0ulnVNQ

And here is a commentary of Hypno posted on his profile on Facebook about this video:

"On the map i played you can play it less or more hitscanish, i just dislike it that way tbh, the boots added the possibility to jump into actually the hitscan whores. Shock primary is quite effective even tho the damage was reduced a little I think. Right now the whole gameplay feels solid but its gonna be tweaked a lot. The real awesome features are coming though, match making, good spectator, eSports support, tournaments, thats what will make this game alive, something that we really never had full support in previous versions, its awesome that epic are so open regarding it. About the dodge jump i truly dont know how it would perform, specially because of the scaling of maps, not sure if it would break it or not."

Hey guys, im fisT.

Most of you have no idea who I am, so let me tell you whats worth mentioning. I'm relatively new to FPS games started in 2012 playing Crysis 2 and quickly became interested in improving myself in FPS games, obviously that game wasn't enough though.

After DHW13 Quake Live grandfinals I decided this is the game I want to be good at and I've played approx 250 hours now across 3 accounts trying to get just the nickname fisT for myself.

A lot of guys have been really helpful in helping me improve in duel, and I'd like to see if ESR could do anything to support me.

I'll be streaming starting this very moment all my QL dueling on twitch.tv/fistQL and if anybody ever happens to watch, I'd appreciate viewing it in a criticising manner and telling me in the chat what I should work on. If not, screw it I'll still try to improve on my own.

Thanks!

First Doom2 map - First Mission.wad (3 comments)
Posted by Badb0y @ 12:42 CDT, 6 September 2014 - iMsg
In 2012 i drifted towards Doom 2. Since then i play singleplayer community maps and online coop. Last year i started to work on my own wad and to fight against the mapeditor :)

The two maps can be played with GZDoom, ZDoom and Zandronum.

Its very linear because i wanted to orchestrate scenes. Playtime is long, a typical beginner error. Im a big fan of slaughtermap style, but here i didnt do many monster and instead used the factor closeness. It is balanced for beginners and veterans i think ergo it is doable without starting to cry. Sure now i see some mistakes i did, but im proud that all my room ideas from drawings went into the wad. Music is taken from the free Bomberman game. HF and thanks for playing!

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rr4r15dzkc4kfc3/FirstMission.zip

There is a walkthrough from a mate which helped me to balance the maps so a few things did change since then.

A4Tech Gaming Mice (16 comments)
Posted by adacsaba @ 20:17 CDT, 5 September 2014 - iMsg
Hello gamers and HW freaks !

I would very much to start this thread in hope of giving some attention to these less popular input devices from A4Tech Co.

First of all, i currently own an Bloody ZL5 Sniper and Bloody V8M, and intend to buy one or more from the Oscar series (older).

A4tech mice come in the mainstream price category (in my country at least), most of the models are commercially available. Sensor wise they are not bad: Bloody Z, T and R series are laser with Avago ADNS9800, V series with PAW3305DK (those with Holeless HD Engine), it seems after 2013 revision V series come with PAW3305DK-H (similar to V-track in Oscar series). Ergonomics seem ok (for me), the build quality ok, quality materials used (metal chassis, solid plastic, smooth silky surfaces, Omron switches, etc.). On the other hand, the saying " a gaming mouse is as good as the software comes with it " - well, A4tech has the most advanced macro support i've ever seen (even includes conditional jumping and value attribution to variables).

I would very much like to hear some of the opinions of gamers who use Bloody or Oscar mice, how they compare to expensive gaming mice, etc. These devices seem to be very popular in russian gaming communities.

If is requested, i will disassemble my A4tech devices and post pictures and HW specs of them in the benefit of the community. I also wrote to A4Tech Co, and reported some of the bugs and suggestions for improvement and got some answers from them as well.

Best regards and see ya around :)

*IT support
*Free Airport pickup
*Some computers provided
*Lots of games (CS, COD, Quake, Warsaw, UT n other FPS, Car racing games, RTS, etc)
*Lots of activities

Location: 6 Prohasky st Port Melbourne.

Date: 12th - 14th September.

Registration: Email arena51aus@gmail.com to secure your seat. Seats are limited to 32. First in best dressed.

Freight: Insured fragile freight, 3 day delivery based on my fairly large mid-tower (53cm x 46cm x 24cm, 15kg) is $44 from Perth each way and $77 from Mackay each way. So if you live on the east coast and are closer than Mackay it will be much cheaper than $77. Same if you are west and closer that Perth. I would assume from SA it would be around $30. Let me know if you are interested in this option. The other option is to put your tower in a hard case and check it into fragile baggage at the airport...

Prizes: Cash, Hardware, Shirts, other random stuff.

Requirements: Your gaming rig (some pc's and monitors will be available if you can't get it there), Up to date drivers and game patches (internet won't be good enough for big downloads), Install ALL games you want to play from the list (I suggest the WHOLE COD series as there may be a COD cup), and a pillow if you want to sleep.

top duel people mistery (219 comments)
Posted by Hookinsu @ 18:35 CDT, 4 September 2014 - iMsg
Im currently trying to improve at duel, and what always buffled me was the "how does this guy who is just 100-200 elo beyond me crush me so bad and read my moves so easy".

And yet I felt like that i could also put this question on the pro level as well...i thought finding an answer on this might help me a bit understanding duel more - in general.

How does it come that people like Ash/Plazma/Baksteen/dem0n(?)/claws (and probably ~50 others as well around this level...hopefully)
can not get to beat the pros or get beyond them. In the recent years it was all about Evil/Cypher/Cooller/Strenx/K1llsen/Tox and maybe 2-3 more i randomly guess now...

Everyone can probably agree that players like ash/agent and so on and so forth are really decent, but what holds these people back from constantly beating players like Cypher/Rapha...or at least going 50/50 with them...instead of like 10/90...or 30/70 at best...?

Those people easily beat like 90% of the top100-200 population in duel, but when it comes to the very tops they just cant seem to be able to do someting, what differs the pros from those other people?

This guy Tardiss knows what's up:

"I know what is wrong with strenx, he has that frustration of mud. Instant muddy feeling, all the timings are off for projectiles and angles. Strafe is off ending in a bunch of face plants into walls. Iv'e been looking and looking and looking for the answers for years, who and how or what is doing this to me?... A sync Error? Our modems get fooled of the wrong time, putting us at 150 ping, but reads 30 on scoredboard? One thing I am convinced of is that somebody is doing it, it is not just random lag and errors. I thought I got close, to finding it when I started looking at hidden running files in the temporary folders. Then I thought I was close when I saw the map files had weird permissions, but that was more of a constant corrupting texture file than this. I thought for a while the the camera POV wias being screwed with, i think there are multiple adjustments.... seems to make me look out my right eye but straight ahead, so I would have to add an extra hook to my direct close range rockets, almost to the point the enemy is off the screen to hit. I know you got to do that in high speed situations, just saying it is it is just out of adjusment.

I started to think there was some never ending looping jpg file hogging gpu resources<temp file again>. Same with cpu, a looping performance hogging worm.
Whatever, have a nice day."

the truth is out there

The reason they made these changes seems to be is to drive away oldschool players so that the new ones can't get owned anymore. Ok that's fine, I'll stop playing quake, you can never take away the great ideal that the game once was and the great memories I had with many different people :) see you in cod or something :)

G400 or WMO 1.1a - Can't Decide (59 comments)
Posted by BobbyZ @ 01:40 CDT, 3 September 2014 - iMsg
I know there are many of these threads but I want my own. I keep switching back and forth when I do poorly in a game of CS.

Here are the pros of both mice in my opinion and why I keep switching:

G400:
-better build quality (button clicks)
-side buttons
-superior sensor (tracking speed)

WMO 1.1a:
-shape
-weight

The WMO has g400 mouse feet that I stuck onto it so it glides better than the original feet. I play at 19cm/180 so the negative accel somewhat affects me while using the WMO. I like the shape and weight of the WMO but I know that the G400 is technically superior so I keep switching. I cannot make up my mind and whenever I play badly I switch thinking it will make me play better.

Please leave your thoughts and your reasons as to which mouse I should stick to because I know it's not good to switch mice constantly as I won't develop the muscle memory.

Site stats & people do care about Quake (10 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 04:09 CDT, 2 September 2014 - iMsg
Would be interesting to see historically how many posts / topics have been made on ESR, since changes were implemented, in different game titles, e.g. Q4, Q3, QL etc, and the timing of the increase in posts / topics / activity on this site. "Quake care value" seems to have increased, and posts increased for sure. (QL overtakes the number of topics than Q3)... Perhaps this will be reversed soon, when people stop caring about QL, bit like the Q4 death?

Laptop + 120Hz? (35 comments)
Posted by obi @ 19:53 CDT, 1 September 2014 - iMsg
Hoping someone who know what they are talking about can help me here. I have this piece of shit laptop (Lenovo y580) with HD 4000, GTX 660 and a VGA output. Can I plug in a CRT and get 120hz? The reason I ask is that it has this Nvidia Optimus crap on it which apparently causes problems with high refresh rates. I can't find any confirmation on whether or not this will work.
