USB vs. PS2 Keyboards (12 comments)
Posted by SightUp @ 18:50 CDT, 20 August 2014 - iMsg
I just bought a Poker II. I didn't know it didn't support PS2 ports even through an adapter. But even an adapter would add latency right? Ugh. So should I return it or are USB keyboards fine to game on?

Lightning Gun question (76 comments)
Posted by Hookinsu @ 18:31 CDT, 20 August 2014 - iMsg
Does the Sensitivity actually affect the LG? Since people say its all about strafing and to not move the mouse.

But how does it come that people then say that low sens would be best for lg, if those tutorials always tell me to learn to aim with "A+D" (and moving the mouse while aiming too much was bad)

Are there also any good videos of decent lg players where you can see how much they use there mouse in lg fights?

Thanks =)

Mouse lag (28 comments)
Posted by tommix @ 12:52 CDT, 20 August 2014 - iMsg
Hey ESL, please some advice to fix this: feels like mouse responds with some delay, looks like 30 FPS game, totally unplayable (lol lg firing).


BenQ XL2411
SteelSeries Kinzu v2 Pro Edition


displayrefresh 144Hz
resolution - native
com_maxfps 250
com_idlesleep 0
in_mouse 2
m_filter 0 (feels like 1 with 200 ms ping)
nVidia drivers default
swapinterval 0
mouse settings in windows default
cg_filter_angles 0

What was done to fix it (100 times):

cvar_restart / vid_restart / new cfg exec / vid_restart
in_mouse 1 / 2; in_restart
nVidia 3D settings configuring
nVidia drivers newer/older versions installing
mouse engine drivers installing/uninstalling
mouse firmware update (was helpful some time ago, this time no effect and couldn't update couple of times)
all found mousefix regfiles used - no effect.

I thought the reason in non-native resolution used before and some due to scaling input lags, but it was fine on any r_mode before this problem. Looks like everything is ok with cfg, monitor and videocard settings, but something wrong with mouse.

Also I remember that this problem disappeared couple of times but not sure that I made something for fixing.

Please some help to configuring/fixing this, it pisses me off, I definitely sure that you all know what I mean: effect like truelightning 0.5, ping 200, filter_angels 100, fps 30

Quake Live Matchmaking Demo (115 comments)
Posted by bamze @ 12:49 CDT, 20 August 2014 - iMsg
Hi guys,

i was reading a lot about the upcomming changes and was thinking a lot and i dislike them a lot as well.

I was wondering how hard can it be to programm an working match-making system and why they dont put effort into it? So i was sitting down here like 3 hours and made this:

Its using qlranks ELO to find the best possible match for you.

Check it out, ofc it sucks because its 3rd party and u cant directly join a server per click. BUT i think if they would display something like his in their offical serverbrowser it would be a lot easier to find balanced matches. And if I can do this in 3 hours, they could do as well. They could even use some more hours and put their own elo counter into it to be independent.

ofc Match Making for Teammodes is a bit harder, but why cant they just make it work. I mean they code this new shit since 2 month and dont have 2 days time to programm an match making system - which definitely would help to grow the playerbase a lot more than just simplify the game and piss off most of its existing playerbase.

What do you think?

I want to play some good CTF (32 comments)
Posted by Brainie @ 16:02 CDT, 17 August 2014 - iMsg

I'm tired of servers with shitty admins, people who are just items grabbers and don't play with their team or simple noob starters.

So that's why I'm going to spawn a CTF server on the east coast from 6 pm (available on week-ends during school time). It's CTF with decent maps, 5vs5. The goal is to gather people in a match who want to play as a team and seriously well. It's like a serious pick-up game. And if people are interested maybe I'll set up a pick-up on IRC and provide a teamspeak for it.

I also made a team for that: AESIR. It gathers people who want to play this game type with smartness as well as for fun! We will do our best to play private clan wars as well as leagues if any of them happen.

Do you want to be part of it? Great, just add me on QL ( BRRRAAAAIIINNie ) and I'll send you an invite :) .

Location: North America (but Europeans are welcome as long as they hit :D )
Tag: aesir. Nickname
TeamSpeak server: Private.
IRC: #aesir.ql

Name of the CTF server: TRUE CTF

I've been using this mouse for a few days now, as an upgrade from a Microsoft intelli 3.0a. What I wan't to know is if anyone has had any problems with the mouse feet or tracking? It feels like it really drags and it's effecting my aim. I'm also having problems with the lod and me unintentionally tilting the mouse resulting in it stopping tracking.

My sens is around 30cm/360, at the highest dpi setting (2300) and at 1000hz.

Using an artisan hien red I think, it has no branding on it. I tried it on a navy coloured artisan too but I don't think it was any better. I've ordered a QCK+ because I read that black works best with this mouse... Should arrive tomorrow.

Anyone got any similiar experiences or is it just me being whiney?


I started using the QCK+ and have gotten a bit more used to the liftoff distance now and the mouse feels great. Can't really fault it now, except for the tracking on other pads. :)

Quake 3 Audiotest using OpenAL HRTF (97 comments)
Posted by kapca @ 08:21 CDT, 17 August 2014 - iMsg

I wanted to try out positional audio in quake3, and since ioquake3 uses OpenAL, I thought I might give HRTF a go. I made a video if any of you are interested.

This is 44.1Khz software only, no hardware 3D (Dolby, virtual-surround, etc.) was used, but that would also work as an additional enhancement btw, I just wanted to hear how it would sound on a simple stereo output, (like on a cheap onboard Realtek chip which was used in this test).

extraQL 1.3 released (25 comments)
Posted by PredatH0r @ 15:27 CDT, 16 August 2014 - iMsg Display with Team Extensions
"ecsplos1v" aka "ecs" improved the "" script with his Team Extensions:
/qlrdDisplayGamesCompleted: shows the number of matches of the current game type that each player on the server has completed (=noob-check)
/qlrdShuffle: suggests the best possible teams based on their score (only works with an even number of players on the server)
/qlrdShufflePerform: if you have op, it moves the players into teams as suggested by /qlrdShuffle
/elo: an easy to remember command as an alternative to the above aliases. Type "/elo help" to see a list of sub-commands

This new script adds a "Links" menu in QL with links to various QL related community sites.

Start Page
After loading QL this script sends you directly to your preferred start page. You can set the start page through "Userscripts / Set as Start Page" or by setting the cvar "web_home" directly

Auto-Open Chat
After loading QL this script expands your chat bar.

Internal changes
The biggest changes in 1.2 are "under-the-hood" and improve the auto-updating of userscripts.
I tried not to break anything for older installations, but in case you run into problems, please download the latest version from

"wn" is currently working on a new version of his famous "New Alt Browser" script, so stay tuned for further updates.

If you have problems, question or suggestions around userscripts, vist us on quakenet IRC channel #qlhm.

Version 1.3 of hook.js contains a bug fix for opening the "Account Settings" page.
Version 1.3 of extraQL.exe fixes issues with the script auto-update system.
Going forward I expect fewer changes to these "system" files, which require manual updates.

What would you add to Reflex? (122 comments)
Posted by Padawan @ 09:52 CDT, 16 August 2014 - iMsg
Okay since this game is still in early Alpha development there's plenty of time left to discuss possible features that could breath new life into the Arena genre. The trick here is that the game shouldn't be polluted with too many features, resulting in randomness. On the other hand it needs some refreshing features to differ from it's spiritual predecessor (CPM) and QL. Hypothetically speaking, what would you like to see introduced in Reflex?

I have a couple of ideas of my own:

- A temporary protective spawn bubble that lasts for 1-3 seconds. This prevents spawnraping like it occurs on for example Aerowalk. Keep in mind the spawn bubble would dissapear if you start moving/shooting! For Aerowalk in particular, another solution would be too add more spawnpoints.

- A shield gun (reflect enemy projectiles, so it also functions as a weapon in that manner) that wears off after a few collisions (depending on enemy weapon). It should be small, so it doesn't cover the whole hitbox. It's more efficient when you duck, because that makes you more compact. The downside of that is you can get pinned down easily.

- As mentioned before by some people here, damage through floors (only a specific type of floor, that's placed around armors and strong positions). Only possible with rocket launcher. Negates camping.

- Maybe some kind of gun that, like the grenade launcher, shoots projectiles that bounce off the walls, but the projectiles aren't affected by gravity like grenades are. I remember a similar weapon being used in Unreal. Not sure how far the projectile should be able to travel though, it could be abused to spam corners.

- Shoot through teleporters (already confirmed in a way).

- In team games (after the round has ended) be able to bring down some kind of chart that shows how many times you killed (or got killed by) certain players, e.g. Bob killed John 5 times, John killed Bob 3 times (preferably with the weapons used).

- Footstep sounds (really nearby, like 2-3m away). I know this could favor the camping player but it also locks down for example a camping player with low hp, so he can't really make a move.

- Variable increased weapon switch time. For example it takes a little bit longer to equip the railgun than it does to equip the machinegun. This would nerf the overpowered weapons like the railgun. The railgun wouldn't have to be nerfed the way it was before (by removing hitscan). Also i would welcome a little more delay between the railshots, to rule out spamming.

- Increased speed with gauntlet. I noticed this in the leaked QL changes, call me crazy and yes this isn't COD or CS but let me sketch a scenario. If you choose to pick the gauntlet, you have more chance of surprising the enemy, but consider this: it reveals your position (switch sound) and you can get severely punished if you don't switch to the right weapon in time. It could be useful to reach a position more quickly and catching the enemy off guard.

- Choose your own spawn point (like pre-start of HooneyMode albeit in real-time, on a small 2d screen). Advantage being you can spawn at a place where you are not likely to get spawnkilled. Disadvantage can be you're losing valuable time.

- UT styled double-tap dodge, good to make an unexpected move or to emerge quickly behind the corner to hit a rail. With cooldown time, so it can't be abused and it makes you vulnerable to counterattacks. Can't be followed up with bunnyhopping.

- Crouchsliding (already confirmed will NOT be implemented)

- Cell shaded graphics (confirmed probably not going to happen)

- The possibility to record demos from your opponent's POV as well as your own (like mvd, but you wouldn't need an extra guy in spec to record you both. This way you could learn from mistakes you made during the match).

- In the serverbrowser, show how much time is left in the game you are about to join. In Q3 you have to join the game first, only to find out it's another 9 minutes of waiting.

Community driven feedback (from esreality):

- In the planned training mode, be able to seperately practice the needed set of skills, e.g. movement, aiming (something like the bot practice map ojtar1a), positioning etc. (c) Anonymous

- The ability to shoot your own, or your opponents' projectiles (rockets, grenades). Good to pre-detonate a rocket that would have else penetrated a hole in the wall. Perhaps the machinegun would be a good weapon to shoot the projectiles, thus countering the attack? (c) Generic Nickname

- Some kind of Defrag mode, it's a fun and useful mode to practice movement. Could be combined with Surf in an all-movement orientated gametype. Basically like QL race but better! (c) qr

- A Coaching mode like it exists in TF2, requires voice-comm support. Newb friendly and it brings players closer together (no homo) (c) Anonymous

- Tank mode (many players take up arms together to beat 1 overpowered player with battlesuit) (c) JS3

- Add back wall-clipping, being able to cut corners by clipping the curves when strafing at high speeds (c) Shin-Obi

- Some kind of spawncounter that makes sure you don't spawn in the same spot twice or more, effectively reducing the enemy's consecutive spawnfrags. (c) Terifire

- Save the server's current state (done by referees/admins) when for example during an official tournament match one player drops out due to connection issues. Saves all the positions, items, weapons etc in a temporary file. Avoids having to recreate the whole match statistics (remember Strenx vs Cooller @ IEM Kiev?) (c) foctis

- Add VQ3/QL ruleset (c) multiple users

- Fully customizable HUD (c) Gobotz

- Persistent leaderboards for FFA (c) ImpulseBE

- Midair mode (c) JS3

Useful BF4 Settings for online (50 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 05:30 CDT, 16 August 2014 - iMsg
Anyone got any useful / essential BF4 settings for online?

Started a bit of BF4 in the mean time, b4 some of the other FPS games change / come out. If any of you die hard FPS players can suggest anything, other than ALT F4!, which isn't the answer, it would be much appreciated.

(Battlefield forums have a about a zillion posts contradicting most.)

For e.g. what works best for network smoothing, what is best for what ping?

Oculus Rift 2 First Impressions (13 comments)
Posted by Jamerio @ 05:20 CDT, 16 August 2014 - iMsg
Thought I would jot down a few thoughts on the oculus rift 2 from the eyes of a quaker and semi completive gamer.

I am only an hour into it, but you can see the potential for it right away, it just sucks you out of the real world by isolating your spatial awareness of the real world and then it does a host of tricks with the display to add a new dimension that you'll never get with normal monitors. External hearing is not really affected, and there is room for adding ear phones. Even the big ones.

With the right software things would be even more impressive, of the few demos I have seen the graphics have been very, last gen, but you don't need good graphics to get the wow factor of this device, that would still remain if it was an untextured quake level. But I look forward to Crytek and Epic releasing something to really 'up' the graphics I have seen so far. I know Epic have a few small scenes, so I will check them out, but I really need a new graphics card.

The headset is pretty comfy to wear and you can breathe ok while wearing it.
Its seems to do a pretty good job of keeping the light out, and in game you're not really aware of anything outside of it. No nasty light leaks etc.

I have no idea how to set it up right at the moment so I'll not be too critical of certain things, but I did find myself adjusting the headset from time to time in game, which affected the visibility in game, sometimes it felt a bit out of focus, and you can then see the colours of certain things in game change.
But you do find a sweet spot from time to time, so I'm sure things will get better when I know what I am doing.

Its also a little pixelated at times as you're essentially wearing 2 little magnifying glasses which look at a screen, so you are aware of the joins in the pixels. but like quake you soon get used to it, its just when you jump out of VR and back to your normal monitor, its going to be hard to ever forget about this. This will be greatly reduced with something like a 4k screen which will no doubt come over the next few years.

One thing it really misses is some kind of display of your body, if you raise your arm up, or look down, you almost expect to see yourself and when you don't it kinda makes you question the realness of it, though I guess the fact that I am expecting to see a representation of a body in game goes some way into saying how immersive it is.

You can still use the mouse to look around if you want, its quite hard to get used to looking around with your head (you have to remind yourself this is possible) as its not something you're used to doing, even if you use the mouse to look around, you still get the added effect of the VR.

Unlike Kinect, you COULD see this being used for competitive games like quake if they could get a 1:1 with the mouse and keyboard. Its basically an enhanced display device, while the kinect rapes competitive games, this would be much less so.

To be honest, I am not surprised, I heard too many similar things to what I said from others who have no reason to lie, I expected it to be good and it is, its memorable, its an experience and its only going to get better.

I consider the rift similar to comparing a car to a boat, the simple truth is they offer experiences the other cannot and the only way to experience them is to buy both. The rift is worth experiencing, but like a boat, you MIGHT be able to get by using a friends, or just going on a day trip in one instead of owning your own.

I think though from the time being, try and get a free demo on one at a trade-show or your local game store (if they have one), it should give you enough of an experience see what its about and then you might be able to wait for the next version which will no doubt be closer to the product people will get when it goes mass market.

Overall I'm pretty sure anyone who tries it will have more positives to say than negatives. It just depends on how curious you are.

Guide to make good Arena FPS and $$$ (22 comments)
Posted by qr @ 01:03 CDT, 16 August 2014 - iMsg
Step 1: Release crummy CoD/CS clone that everyone plays (but better in the sense that it attracts more idiots)
Step 2: Wait for player-base to build.
Step 3: Series of patches over the course of 1-2 years:
3a - Customizable content/HUD, noob friendly drag/drop widget style like android phone
3b - Add cheesy UT movement perks like the new CoD or Titanfall or whatever
3c - Introduce health/armor items in map
3d - Add weapons to map
3e - Upgrade UT movement to strafejumping
.... eventually you will just have Quake again.
Step 4: Watch hundreds of thousands of people unwittingly play Quake.

It's so easy even I could think of it.

Input lag tests QL/CSGO (270 comments)
Posted by noacc @ 15:55 CDT, 15 August 2014 - iMsg
This post is being updated with new info when available.
TLDR Average overall input lag from click to screen
QL: Logitech G100s 15ms; Zowie EC2 CL 28ms
CSGO: Logitech G100s 22ms

so I have done input lag test for current build UnrealTournament.exe 19-08-2014 with g100s.
First I did check how it subjectivly feels. It feels good. Input lag (mouse1->first sign of gun shot) is in 17-26ms range. Mouse motions lag seems to be low too.
Mouse motion start lag test coming soon.
did not check all of the shots though. Counted only for 15.

Measurement target.
Measure full input lag for QL/CSGO from click to client side effect appearing on the screen for different hardware setups and software settings.
Measure start motion lag for QL/CSGO from mouse movement start to first reaction on screen appear.

PC: i5 4690, GTX760 Hawk, Z87M Gaming mb, RAM CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8R 2x8Gb, Kingston HyperX 3K SSD.
Monitors: BenQ XL2411T, Sony G520 CRT
Mouse: Zowie EC2 CL and Logitech G100s modded with LED, which is driven by Mouse 1 switch of the mouse directly
actual DPI values zowie 421dpi, g100s 937dpi
using following formula DPI = 360*2,54 / (cm360*m_yaw*QLsensitivity) (source

Camera: Casio EX-FH25 all filming is done at 1000FPS.

Main measurement.
CSGO max_fps=250 everything else at default
QL 250FPS com_idlesleep 0 in_mouse 2
LCD 144Hz, 1080p, instand mode on, ama premium, brightness 100%, image mode standard
CPU every setting at default in bios
GPU everything in nvidia driver software set to highest performance and lowest quality
QL ZOWIE EC2 CL Average overall input lag 28ms. Lowest 24ms, highest 32ms. 50+ measurements. Sample VIDEO:
QL Logitech G100s Average overall input lag 15ms. Lowest 10ms, highest 17ms. 30 measurements. Sample VIDEO:
CSGO Logitech G100s Average overall input lag 22ms. Lowest 17ms, highest 25ms. 10 measurements. Sample VIDEO:

Start motion lag test results - 15ms for both Zowie EC2 CL (450 and 2300 CPI) and Logitech G100s (measured only for default 1000CPI) both of them had lowest value of 10ms and highest of 17ms
same setup as execept I use 144Hz LCD instead of CRT.
Footage example

Other tests and results
CRT result At 144Hz I could not find measurable difference in input lag. At 170Hz input lag tended to be couple ms less. I did not get anything more than 29ms. Lowest was 20ms. 20 measurements.

Things, that do not affect input lag (or their impact is less than 2-3ms). 10 tests for all
1. Maximum prerendered frames setting in nvidia control panel both for QL/CSGO
2. Scaling setting in nvidia control panel. QL
3. Ingame resolution. QL
4. Turning on/off aero. QL
5. GPU scaling. QL
6. Monitor scaling. QL
7. Turbo Boost/C-States/EIST/Thermal Monitor/Etc. QL
8. PEG Gen2/Gen3 Slot Configuration. QL
9. Execute Disable Bit. QL
10. Intel Virtualization Technology. QL
11. xHCI pre-boot driver / xHCI mode / xHCI hand-off. QL
12. eHCI hand-off. QL
13. On-board audio (:D). QL
14. Wake on Lan (:D). QL
15. Java, Flash, IE, Print Spooler, Human Interface Device Access (:D:D:D). QL
16. Turning HPET ON/OFF with command line in Windows 7, while HPET is ON in BIOS. QL/CSGO
17. BenQ overdrive options. QL

Things, that do affect input lag
1. 32ms avg for 125fps (30 measurements). QL
2. HPET OFF = stutters + drops in frame rate + it adds HUGE input lag variace - I made 10 measurements and it was anything from 26ms to 90ms (!!!) turning HPET on/off with cmd in WIndows 7 did not make any difference QL/CSGO
3. Lightboost tends to add couple ms, but since this is within measurement tolerance and I actually need to perform 50+ events checking I got lazy about doing more measurements. QL
4. BenQ built in featrues Aspect, 17" and 19" are all adding 5-8ms. Take a note that those are only available with 120Hz, so it might be partially due to the lower refresh rate. QL
5. Turning off scaling completely in nvidia control panel resulted in ~3ms more input lag, but it might be due to the low amount of measurements. I will perform more for this later. QL
6. Instant mode OFF = +7ms lag to the color state, but grey reponse is still ~28ms QL

Some footages: 51mb 29mb 30mb

Use Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC) from to view frame by frame. VLC can do this too.

Win 7 Pro 64bit (with latest updates), Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC), Quake Live

Measurement method.
Stick LED to the bottom of the monitor
Load local game in QL
Press mouse 1
Film the process
Count frames between LED fire and first signs of rail trail appear at the bottom region of monitor

Measurement tolerance.
EDIT 18-08-2014
So I performed various expiriments to check stability of framerate of the camera. It turned out to be pretty good. I could not find single inconsistency. So measurment done by frame counting between events has ±1ms (±1 camera frame).
After I have done over 150 measurements overall for mouse1 input lag, I can safely say that 10 measurements is enough to determine this value. Frame length is ~7ms @144Hz, for XL2411T , so depending on input timing we will always get 7ms variance of input lag overall if enough measurements are done. So it will be enough to perform only few measurements (~10) to get good idea what amount of frames it takes to react to mouse click or motion start. However for more or less accurate number we need 50 measurements at least to randomize input time. Currently I do not have neither time nor will to make it THAT accurate for each measurement. However I did perform 50 tests for zowie and 30 tests for g100s mouse1 click latency because that was the most I was interested at. That should be enough, to get a good idea which mouse have significantly more latency.

Added G100s input lag test for mouse1
Added some thoughts on tolerance and number of measurements
Added CSGO with G100s
tested HPET enable/disable in win7
Removed OSU since the exact screen reaction time could not be determined on footage and it is useless for this game I beleive.

TODO list:
perform main measurement for new UT pre alpha
perform main measurement for G502 soon
WMO as soon it arrive to me
test non native DPIs for G100s if I get a right mood
test benq vs crt with tftcentral multiple timers method if I get a right mood and TONs of free time to waste :D
test windowed mode for QL with aero on/off if I get a right mood

So, your WMO just died. You are a cheap cunt and want a bargain (less than £20). You need a mouse that has a newer (flawless) sensor and has 500/1000hz default polling rate. Here's some options:


Anker 2000 DPI Mouse -
£16. Avago ADNS 3050. Omron Switches.

CM Storm Alcor -
£24. Avago ADNS 3090. Good IME 3.0 replacement. Hopefully there is a better price for this out there. 3 year warranty.

CM Storm Xornet -
£15. Avago ADNS 3050. Omron Switches. 3 year warranty.

Logitech G100S - or
£12 (eBay) / £16 (Amazon). Highly regarded. 2 year warranty.

Perixx MX-1000 -
£13. Avago ADNS 3050. Omron Switches.

SteelSeries Kana V2 -
£18. Well built. Takasta Review -

eBay Zowie EC1/2 eVo
Astz! says you can get them for 20 euro if you wait for them to pop up.

Worthy upgrade? (10 comments)

One friend is selling his asus b85-m mobo with i5 4570 and 8gb ddr 1600 for a really interesting price.

Now i have a Q8300 with 4gb ddr800.

Vga card would stay (ati 5750) cause 3 years later with the same money i bought it, i can buy a card which is only 10% faster, which i find outrageous.

Do you think its worth the upgrade? Would it make a big differences in maps known to suffer from fps drops? Would it help postprocessing taking a smaller hit on performance just changing cpu mobo and memo? Or do you think theres a high probability this new setup could give me those sad unexplained fps drops/hitchs that many people suffer with QL with and newer hardware?

Giving MX300/G1/MX510 and more (13 comments)
Posted by memph1s_ @ 06:16 CDT, 15 August 2014 - iMsg
Today I woke up to a random decision; I want to part with these mice that I otherwise never would. I don't know, it feels like a waste for me to just keep them around and feel all nostalgic. Rather have someone else put them to use I guess. Since there's barely any gamers here who understand the worth of these mice I have decided to post about this here on ESR.

After giving it some thought and visiting an EMS service office, the issue is that I am from Dubai, and shipping anything out of here will easily cost 20 euros or more, and for some of these mice I will have to pay for a container as well.

I am not trying to make money on these, but there's a certain cost because of where I live that anyone who wants them will have to cover. I also cannot be paid via PayPal or something because they're a bitch to use in this region. Sending via Western Union will probably be the best method for both sides.

Here's the list. I take really good care of my stuff so rest assured everything here is clean and works perfectly, apart from light wear and tear with time. I have made an Imgur gallery with pics of all these mice in there. The photos could've been better I guess.

Logitech G400S - 26.50 euros
Like new, opened and used for probably a total of 5-6 hours. Clean. With box and manuals.

SteelSeries Rival - 26.50 euros
Brand new, sealed.

Logitech MX510 (blue) - 27 euros
Brand new, sealed. Yes, I actually have kept one piece sealed for quite a while. I did slightly lift a sealing sticker to plug the mouse and check if it works, but other than that it's never been used at all.

Logitech G1 (blue) - 25 euros
Used but buttons etc are in good shape. Added new skates.

Logitech MX300 - 30 euros
Used but the buttons and scroll etc are in good shape. Added new skates. A few extra euros cuz I love this mouse :>

Zowie EC2 Limited Edition Blue - 27 euros
Like new, opened and used for probably a total of 8-10 hours across 2 days. Clean. With box. Has new skates.

I have a WMO and original release MS3.0 that I'm going to keep. The prices I have mentioned are pretty much the shipping costs for each, so I'm sort of giving the mice away for free. Shipping takes 4-8 days to Europe.

I am absolutely digging the fuck out of stoner/doom/psychedelic/occult rock with female vocals. Can't get enough of this shit:

Jex Thoth's voice is fucking amazing, the SubRosa album is probably the best thing I've heard in recent memory, and every The Devil's Blood album is also The Shit (sadly the composer killed himself recently, putting an end to the band). Unfortunately these 5 bands are all I have at the moment. Do you have any further recommendations other than these? I know some of you here know your shit. I bet brandan can come up with a few gems.

(Of course, feel free to post anything in this style that you would rate 10/10, not necessarily with female vocals. Until recently my experience with this stuff had basically been limited to Electric Wizard and Orange Goblin. Other bands I have been digging the fuck out of: All Them Witches, Black Pyramid, Bongripper, Bongzilla, Conan, Earthless, Goatsnake, Purple Hill Witch, Samsara Blues Experiment, The Sword, Ufomammut, Witch and Wo Fat)

Well, I am kind of drunk, and reading all these "QL 2.0 UPDATE LEAKS" just made me angry. People saying all this shit about Steam putting pressure on id to make money and stuff, well if they want the game to be more noob friendly its fine, but don't make us pay for the same game we've been playing for free last years...
If they really want to go "Steam-way to success" why not make it one Casual and one Competitive mode. Both free like in CSGO.
And eventually make people pay for maps or some other pointless shit.
If we need to pay for the game in order to get the same fucking shit we had last years. Even though i was a premium user for 3 years and i dont think it was expensive whatsoever, I payed for the ability to spawn server, premium maps and all that shit, not being able to play the normal/proper quake.

Thank you, Good bye.

This vid can be applied to quake basically. The tl;dr here is : NEVER GIVE UP. Even in the worst of situations (i mean cmon that guy got his leg in a lock), you can come out on top with some luck (obviously) and skill.

In any case, this is a great showcase of a champions mentality (c) dkk. Just thought it might inspire some players a little to not forfeit when shits not going their way (including myself, obviously) : )

Ok, let's say a noob ruleset is needed (61 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 09:49 CDT, 14 August 2014 - iMsg
to save QL from bankruptcy, because they don't know how to come up wiht actual matchmaking (the true solution), so they go cheapo trying to get new players by Halo-ifing (shittifing) the game and hoping noobs will stick to it once it goes Steam.

Anyone can give me a decent argument as in to why, why in hell the classic (aka REAL Quake) gameplay is pay only? just why in hell sponge? just why in hell syncerror? just why in hell anyone? Whats the point in any case?

With this, what you are doing is giving noobs the feeling that actual Quake is what they will be playing for free, and not what they CAN NOT experience unless they pay. They will not be able to test for free, for themselves real Quake gameplay. In case they are curious, they will need to pay for it, and since they can't train under real Quake settings, as soon as they find out they have paid only to get beaten the fuck up, they will just continue playing the comfortable-lazy noob gameplay which was available for free in any case. As soon as noobs realize it's not worth to pay to get beaten by a million frags, they will not care to pay for it. Which puts real Quake even further away from being even tried out by the adventurous noobs that want a real challenge. They are FORCED to pay now. Who is the dumbastic moron taking these decisions in id software? For real tho.

What has to be left clear for everyone here is, REAL QUAKE is what you are going to call "classic". Every noob must know that they are not playing actual Quake. So I vote for "Quake ruleset" and "Noob ruleset" simply put, in these literal terms. They must know they are noob, and they must know they are not playing true Quake. You know what I will hate, when these kiddos think they are though shit braging about how good they are at Quake, but then you find out no one of them plays actual real Quake and no one plays against you, because you will be "the weirdo that plays that weird 'classic' pay only gameplay" and the actual Quake gameplay will get ostracized even more, by people that thinks they are playing Quake. See how objectively stupid making classic aka real Quake pay only is? Give me a solid argument you marketing geniuses at id.

Weak internet? HELP (12 comments)
Posted by Laskiy @ 13:02 CDT, 13 August 2014 - iMsg
For about 2 years ive been struggling with my lags ingame. But now its ridiculous. I havent been able to practice normally at all for the past 2 weeks

I dont understand how, for example, my friend can download torrents and still play just fine without any lag but nobody in my house can even watch a youtube video without my ping going to 150
Its not wireless either.

What can I do to avoid everybodys internet usage fucking my lagometer completely?

Gauntlet base movement speed increase. (21 comments)
Posted by natemare @ 09:24 CDT, 13 August 2014 - iMsg
Regarding the 6.75% increase in base movement speed with gauntlet; I imagine that thefirst circle jump and successive strafes will allow slightly faster movement overall.

I'm not sure how friction works on the second jump i.e. would the increased base movement speed of 320 slow you down more rapidly on a misstimed jump than the newer ~350, or is ground friction static regardless of air speed vs. ground speed.

Alternatively, only the first circle jump will be affected and successive jumps, if friction is the same regardless of base movement speed, will be the same as normal.

Someone could test this by increasing the base movement speed in a practice server I guess, but I just got to work so ~10 hours from now I will be able to test.

I anticipate overjumping the bridge when going to rail more frequently than I already do. I will probably not bother with Gauntlet out once this is released.

xtc.fnx interview (11 comments)
Posted by M4nimal @ 08:23 CDT, 13 August 2014 - iMsg
United Kingdom Zoot recently held casting try outs with quite a few would-be quake casters. South Africa fnx was one of the few candidates who made it through and is now part of the zLive team. We've thrown some questions together for Cris "fnx" Vlasiu to answer.

South Africa M4nimal: In becoming a commentator, was there anything you needed to do in order to have an edge in regards to match / player insights, or are you relying solely on your experience as a player?

South Africa fnx: In terms of prep work I do like to check out players profile on and QLRanks just to see what they have been up too recently, it allows me a little bit of insight into their form going into the game and it's nice to have stats handy during the stream.

Hope you enjoy the interview!

TDM Lan in Belgium: Yes or No? (48 comments)
Posted by Memento_Mori @ 08:22 CDT, 13 August 2014 - iMsg
Dear fellow Quakers, it's time to decide.

As you know, the Prague lan had to be canceled due to the district internet cafe closing. We have discussed alternative proposals, and it appears that the most concrete option at this stage is to host a TDM LAN in 2014 is to take part in Storm 14. More information on how we arrive here is in the previous news post.

The only missing thing now is a consensus among the community. Are we doing this or not? Let's speak our mind, and settle this. Please vote here (poll) until Sunday 17th.

(this is real) - FOR THE COMMUNITY!

Hello quakers, while quakelive still has its decent gameplay settings, i want to host a tournament.

I have made a pool for what game mode you would like to play for this tournament, further rules will come into force if there is a decent amount of people prepared to play.

First step is to sort out what game mode:

Quake loadouts!? (46 comments)
Posted by Sietse @ 16:44 CDT, 12 August 2014 - iMsg
So seriously, at first I didn't believe this 'leaked' changelog at all, but now with the leaked IRC log its actually believable.

But what are these loadouts about!? To recap, from what I have read this means that you now can spawn with one of these weapons: mg, sg, gl or pg AND one of these weapons: rl, lg, rg and heavy machine gun (new weapon). This just sounds so retarded; I can actually live with all other changes, the item timers, the new gauntlet etc, at least I would be able to play a proper duel game (or tdm/ctf for that matter). But not with these loadouts.

For example, imagine being out of control on aerowalk. Everyone who plays duel knows how hard it is to even get these weapons without getting damaged heavily or even dying. Now you can spawn with railgun in hand and probably do at least 90 damage before you die, than when you are dead you just spawn again with railgun and do 90 damage et voila, you got your control back, if you would even speak of control (it might be more than 2 deaths, but you get what I am saying here).

Also, the randomness would increase a lot in the starting spawns. On most big maps, you get either red/mega, a YA and 2 main weapons. The main weapon you are lacking, is the one you could choose as a loadout, but you don't know which one this is before the game starts and because the spawns are completely random this is just creating a big luck factor.

Also, just imagine how stupid vertical vengeance would be if you could spawn with railgun.

This doesn't stop at duel though, for example spawning with railgun at space ctf, this was actually mentioned on IRC and this was sponge's response:

<+ia> yea that will definitely be the worst of the problems spacectf has
<KingPsychopath> What probs :P
<@sponge> we can disable weapons in maps
<@sponge> it depends on how often we wish tou se that ability

Even disabling certain weapons on certain maps won't be a great solution, all weapons that you aren't supposed to spawn with you just shouldn't spawn with. Map designers already have the option to give players weapons at the start if that is needed, albeit not chosen by the player specifically. I think on spacectf you even spawn with shotgun already.

Also on tdm funnyb already said something in another thread, so I'll just quote him:

5 sec respawn for pub MIGHT be good for pub tdm (but definately awful for proper tdm) if there were no loadouts. now just fucking imagine tdm with 10 players, all respawning with railgun and every weapon respawning in 5 secs. the game is completely different and in my opinion, awful.

The only gamemode where this actually wouldn't have a big impact is ffa.

So what I am saying here is: please just remove these awful loadouts on duel, ctf and tdm. And if you (syncerror/sponge) really don't want to remove this, please consider it again, but only for duel. Duel is just completely ruined with this, and without loadouts I (and maybe others as well) might actually play some duels on these public servers instead of just 'classic'.

I am still hoping this is one big troll though by sponge and the whole focus team who created a fake changelog and irc log :D

Only just seen this. A new motor racing series is going to kick off in September featuring all electric powered cars that resemble F1 and indy cars and have 270bhp max power while weighing max 888kg. Looks quite interesting although I guess the downside is the low noise, something which people didn't like the change of in F1. When watching motor sports one of main spectacles is the noise and roar you get from the engines!

Anyway the grid looks pretty decent with some ex F1 drivers such as Sebastien Buemi and Lucas di Grassi as well as relatives of F1 greats, Bruno Senna (Sennas nephew) and Nicolas Prost (son of Alain Prost)

•Acceleration: 0 - 100 km/h (0-62mph) in 3 secs
•Maximum speed: 225 km/h (FIA limited)

edit: Range: 25 minutes - Charging time: 90 minutes - hmm how will this work? 'Races will begin by standing start and last for approximately one hour with drivers making a mandatory pit stop in order to change cars.'

Hello ESR,

I know a lot of you are fighting game fans and players so this might interest you. I'm looking for a fighting games community manager to be based in the UK. You would need to be utterly passionate about fighting games and also happy to travel extensively around the world, appear in videos and in front of audiences.

If you've read this far: it's for Capcom. So is clearly awesome. Get in touch.

Frame metering, i need your help. (49 comments)
Posted by doped @ 07:52 CDT, 12 August 2014 - iMsg
UPDATE: Upgraded to windows 7, oc'd mouse to 500hz, and i can report, mouse is 1-1 linear now, it's as it should be. This bug is with drivers above 180 on windows xp it seems. Also, mouse on 125hz windows 7, is not linear, it was only after i oc'd to 500hz it was as in the old days.


Im insane, and i have issues with any nvidia driver above 180.

All i can say is input is off, mouse feels like shit. Anyone having played long enough should know what im talking about.

If you don't know what im talking about, just ignore thread, it does not concern you. If you started gaming on 30ms lcd, you would not know what i talk about. Issue is standing since 2010 or there about(threads about the issue started popping up all over then)

Anyway, as i said, im insane and my latest theory is nvidia's frame metering that im attributing to this feel of molasses/delay whatever you wanna call it.

I contacted ppl from nvidia to request an OFF switch for frame metering. He said it was not possible now, but if enough ppl asked, they would consider it.

How is frame metering/pacing not a good thing, you might ask? maybe it's all good, but if it takes priority above input, it might just be what's causing the shit feel, or some of it.
Frame metering sounds like a pretty cool technology, but there is a trade-off involved. To cushion jitter, Nvidia is increasing the amount of lag in the graphics subsystem. and it's not just added for sli, that my problem.

If you don't know what im talking about / i have no issue, you are -insult/joke
Ok, if possible, try playing quake with 175.16 driver, or if not possible, any ati card should have an immensely better feeling. If you don't believe me, just move on.

If you know what im talking about
We need to have a feature request thread at first is what he suggested.
