How to survive prison (41 comments)
Posted by Gobotz @ 16:13 CDT, 10 March 2015 - iMsg
Tips/tricks from a friend:

Lay low for the first few weeks and size up everyone in your tier. Get to know them as much as possible. If you go in guns blazing thinking youre the shit no one will like you. Once you do meet a few people it really helps to pass time by playing games, scrabble, chess or poker.

Pro tips: Getting a job is pretty sweet too, it passes time and allows you to move around the prison a lot more.
Laundry duty ;) And I know it's not your choice but if you can avoid a kitchen job you're in the clear.

Stock up on commissary food. It's the method of payment in jail. You can only order it once a week. And no one knows how to conserve, so they run out 2-3 days after it comes.
When they do, they will come to you and you can make deals like 2 for 1 chips or whatever. Once I bought my first batch of commissary, I barely ever had to buy anything else. I was hustlin food big time.

Pro tip: Make sure you watch them deposit funds into their account before you spot them anything.

Write letters! Receiving a letter esp from girls is like waking up on Xmas morning as a kid.

Smoking in prison:
To start a flame or wick to light a cig or joint, you twist up toilet tissue tight like you were ringing it out. Leave the end loose though. Then take pencil lead and thread it through the loose end. Put a plug of something half way in the electrical socket. Then simply touch the lead to the prongs of the plug and watch the spark that occurs light that tissue paper like the Fourth of July. Recommend keeping your face as far away as possible. The spark that occurs is pretty damn violent lol. Then you can simply blow out the flame and the twisted part of the tissue will burn for quite awhile. Just keep blowing on it or waving it around so air keeps it smoldering.

Pro tip: hustle niggaz for pencils.

Making alcohol:
You just take a bunch of fruit, oranges for example. Squeeze all the juice into a container. Put a few slices of bread a bag and poke some holes in it. Put the bag in the container of juice and add a bunch of sugar. Add more sugar every day and be sure to open the container once a day to release the pressure. Keep doing that and let it ferment for 3-4 weeks. It's not the best tasting stuff but it'll work.
prison wine:

Candy shank:

Weaponizing trash:

Lamb shank:

Toothbrush shank

QuakeCon 2014 Demos (3 comments)
Posted by h8m3 @ 10:56 CDT, 10 March 2015 - iMsg
So apparently only existed for a couple of months and all demos which were not downloaded were lost? Faceit were going to rehost it but didn't download it in time and the website went down. Did anyone save anything from duel/ctf playoffs or is it all really lost? :(

Who is your current favorite duel player (133 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 19:53 CDT, 9 March 2015 - iMsg
... and explain why.

for me it's cooller because he won the 125fps finals by beating both evil and cypher. And that without nerding the game 24/24 7/7.

also because he's at the top of duel since 2002, and i don't remember any duel player that managed to do that for a so long period of time.

also because his playstyle is enjoyable to watch.

and finally because... he's using EC2 evo cl :D. I mean finally a top player using a flawless mouse :D. I mean evil is using a kinzu... just imagine how good he could be with a mouse using flawless sensor. Yeah, yeah, i know, the mouse doesn't matter, it's not the mouse that does the player and blalbla :D

oh, and he's using keel. KEEL MASTER RACE!!!!! :)

Was Quake 3 ever really that big? (44 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 16:44 CDT, 9 March 2015 - iMsg
This was said even by John Carmack (trying to find the youtube video, it was Id's weakest selling post Doom game) but quake 3 wasn't really ever that big. It didn't crack a million copies (the older games sold much better, Quake 2 outsold all the other Id games until Doom 3, confirmed by Tim Willits here at 40:40 ) and regardless what many think of post quake 3 Id, Doom 3 was and still is the best selling Id game at over 3.5 million copies, as stated here:

Just wondering, but why do you think Quake 3 was kind of a flop compared to previous Id games?

Qlranks to remove banned players? (2 comments)
Posted by marcusM @ 11:50 CDT, 9 March 2015 - iMsg
Would be really nice if you guys over at qlranks could remove banned ql players from the leaderboards (such as country specific duel, ca ladders), so that stat whores like me don't have to be butthurt about it.

Also, any way possible to fix the flag shuffle exploit? Like reaching n1 in a country ladder, then switch ql flag but stay on the old qlranks country ladder.

Thank u

Brand New to CS, Where do I start??? (23 comments)
Posted by LoneStar64 @ 08:57 CDT, 8 March 2015 - iMsg
Like the title says, brand new to CS. Never have played a game but very interested in playing and learning to play. I have ran through the training course a few times, watched some matches on twitch. I have played FPS since Doom (I know I'm old!) Is there any servers to learn on? 100's of guides, what is the best? Anyplace to matchup with other newbies to learn with? Any advice on starting my playing of CS would be appreciated! Thanks.................

P.S. I have CS:GO installed

Spending time watching John Carmack speak at Qcon's sparked a thought: We need guys like this for president.

I thought I'd make a T-Shirt to share the idea with the world but I have no idea what I'm doing. I think the shirt should be durable and the font/formatting needs to be perfect. Anyone with a flair for design care to help?

I think longsleves would work great too with it going down the side.

POP-UP/AD HELL (22 comments)
Posted by Tripleight @ 18:14 CST, 7 March 2015 - iMsg
I hadn't cleaned my PC for a long time, now I did and I somehow deleted my AD blocker which I installed centuries ago and don't even remember what it was. Some webpages I can't even read, because they keep just refreshing to another shitty commercial, now my Firefox keeps crashing whenever too much brainwashing material wants to open at the same time. My stone age PC does not like that. It crashed already 3 times from the arrested Av3k thread to the making of this topic. I will probably hit the submit post button and some shit will fly out on the screen crashing my browser.

Tell me what are you using to combat a menace like that? It is really bad, I am asking here, because I want effective and known solutions.

What Quake could learn from Smash. (6 comments)
Posted by GMT @ 13:01 CST, 7 March 2015 - iMsg
I've written a two part series looking at what makes the Smash community so great, and how the Quake community can learn from it, over on FPS Pulse.

The first part is an introduction just setting the base for the real meat and veg, part 2. Part 2, titled "The How", will feature a full interview with Apex 2015 champion ZeRo + statements from TaFoKiNts and Nintendude. I'll be tackling the specifics of the Smash community's greatness, and the Quake community's downfalls.

The Quake community isn't perfect, and the Smash one gets a lot of shit right. In my opinion, we should be looking to emulate a lot of their philosophies. Part 2 will release on the 10th of March.

New Idea for Quake Live Movie Makers (21 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 05:22 CST, 7 March 2015 - iMsg
Message to MovieMakers from Petr Kukushkin.

I know that Quake movies is your first work in this field. To learn software, learn how to play the demo and exec your config. No hope, but ...

But still, I will give a little idea about the movie. That will make you popular. Take the 10 most popular modern graphically advanced shooters.

Further, the meaning is this: take a cool Quake movie , like
Cut it and the new modern shooters and mount like that

"Look how many possibilities in Quake and
there are none in the Call Of duty Ghosts \ Counter strike \ Bioshock \ Unreal Tournament \ Battlefield . And if so what the f*k do you play them?".

Or "put under video Like if you can't do it in your shooter."

All this you must upload to YouTube in the title tags and titles to your videos more names of modern shooters for best search results for moder shooter players.

Epic is the new id, even better i'd say (engine and community wise), best engine in bussines, free license unless you make money and then a mere 5%, full source code available, etcetcetc.

Ive been messing with Blender and some time ago Unity, but right now im downloading ue4 cause im hyped as fuck. Maybe its time to stop playing games and start doing something, or at least play less and create more.

Since European CTF League died before even happening Carnage is proud to make it's first attempt at organizing a Russian CTF league starting on 9th of March. The league suprisingly gathered quite a few teams, some of them barely ever played CTF, but being motivated by QuakeCon CTF Tournament they decided to practice this mode.

Scheduled: 10:00 CDT, 15 March 2015 to 17:00 CDT, 15 March 2015
Schedule: Passed

At #tdmpickup, we have many reasons to celebrate: played our 40 000th game last month, HoQ TDM season just finished, QuakeCon 2015 featuring TDM... This calls for yet another #tdmpickup Draft Tournament!

Our 10th Cup will start at 11:00 CDT, 15 March 2015. Signups will start at 10:00 CDT, 15 March 2015 and will last for one hour.

Many of you complained about the SE format in the past, so in a change from previous tournaments, #10 will feature a best-of-1 Loser's Bracket for all teams except WB finalists.

All players are invited to participate, but remember, each player has to play at least 10 TDM pickups prior to the tournament. Please warm up by playing with us all week!

Clucthing like a real mofo, although his movements don't look very accurate but rather sloppy for a top tier player if some claims him to be that. I think with a big possiblity that he is playing from another account as well.. look at his last match played on 1st ferbruary and now he comes back after a month of non-playing as if he wouldn't have taken a break at all.

old maps should be removed from duel (47 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 14:10 CST, 3 March 2015 - iMsg
Some people have said that there isn't many new players having good results in duel tournaments. I would like to see any map that is over 10 years old be done away with in all future quakelive tournaments. In fact, I think really any map over 5 years old should be removed from duel.

THis is going to mean tossing out maps like lost word, blood run and toxicity. I really think new maps should replace these. Anyone else think it's unfair to newer players to have to face against veterans that have played these maps for more then a decade?

I'd like to see the results of something like this. Just completely hit the reboot on all maps except those that are only a couple years old.

What happened? the influx of a whole new generation shaping comments, content etc. to something that i just dont find funny anymore? or dont care about, or simply grew out of.. or is it really just that much more shitty, and its NOT me growing older and tired of it?

What is going on.. I'm not really visiting this site anymore either, it all just seem like a contest of who can post the most stupid comment anyway.

And ppl are still discussing mouse, gfx, config, whatever, like it's some new thing, highres textures etc etc. It never changes, its the same shit with a new generation.. its the same, a repeat, well not, it seems dumber than before. :/

TV went to shit with all the reality bs, sex grinding, stupid idiots etc, stopped watching back in 2008.

The world is shit, "oh well, what you cant change, you just have to accept" no fucking way, thats the REAL problem, we accept this shitty bs.. Fifty shades of bs prob highest grossing with all that FREE ADVERTISING. you see it, but does it anyway.

COCK SUCKING ON THE BUS, COME ON SHITTY GENERATION... fuuuck this. I'm done. Ye, that miley dickface whore wont ruin the generation, its the parents not the tv etc.. oooh how fucking wrong you were.. 6y old girls watching that and the mother saying stfu to me, "the girls want to listen to the music" ... OH YEAH, THAN ANACONDA ONE WITH WHORE DICKFACE CUNT SHIT.. GREAT MUSIC BTW!!! RECOMMEND!.. while they masturbate on their 6million euro iPads each...

Hello there beloved Quakers,

Theres a new very promising build today, that I hope some of you will test with us and even possibly give feedback about.
I can't say enough on UT forums we have to inspire from Quake for a lot of great stuffs, so I hope for minimal trollings (sigh) and maximum enjoyment and CONSTRUCTIVE feedbacks from you guys ;) .

On the same occasion (2 birds one stone), here is a very nie little tutorial made by Zaccubus about UT4:

EDIT: By the way for all mappers around, it's time to try this build, since the map editor is free!!!
Sidenote: maps that will be made could be put on market place and sold (make good maps = get $$$)

A gamer crisis (127 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 10:17 CST, 2 March 2015 - iMsg
Im suffering a crisis. I stopped playing quakelive bc i cant stand being forced to play with a gay announcer, im currently messing a little with reflex and qw, but im being unable to get hooked to any game right now. Upgraded my cpu/mem last year (i5-4570, 8g ram), and two weeks ago i bought a 750 SC. Ive bought/downloaded a lot of games recently, but im failing to get hooked to them. Even playing games i enjoyed a lot some years ago but stopped playing because of x motives, like bc hardware not good enough to play at max settings, example Oblivion, i installed it again, maxed graphics, downloadad hi res pack, but it feels empty like the rest of the games i try.

For some reason my suspension of disbelief is failing. Example: I get close to textures, no mater the game if you get close enough you see the texture pixels, and it makes me sad. Im afraid im maturing at 37 years old and these games are starting to feel empty. That or my perfectionist side has become too demanding. We are in 2015, more than 10 years has passed since doom3 (which was the last game that made me crazy happy with its graphic improvements for the time) and i just see minor improvements in games. Dying Light for example, it has great graphics, but you still see pixels if you get close to things and the animations are good but nothing revolutionary.

QL Funds raising initiative on Indiegogo (42 comments)
Posted by Tonks @ 15:53 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
Overfrag crew started a Crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Goal is to raise starting money needed for organising Quake live instagib tournaments (located in Europe) and prizes. Since there are also no public servers for any instagib mode, money will also go for self-managed server bots that will control the games.

evil vs av3k (39 comments)
Posted by silversword @ 14:26 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
These guys arguably have the most aggressive playstyles in quakelive.
Just want to know how these two "pitbulls" of quake (cliche i know) compare.

In what ways are their styles similar?

In what ways are their styles different?

How do their strengths and weaknesses compare?

And finally who wins a BO7 prime av3k vs prime evil?

whats up with twitch lately (like few days/weeks dunno), it's unwatchable due to lags and buffering, even at lower qualities. even tried vlc with livestreamer, same thing, maybe slightly, just slightly better. didnt have these issues in the past.

Was RTCW the template for the modern FPS (11 comments)
Posted by Terbo @ 12:35 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
At the time the game came out I was such a Quake fanboy that I despised any games that tried to make FPS games more "real"... I ended up not really giving the game much love until Enemy Territory was realeased 2 years later. I've just recently been going back through the singleplayer again and that's what sparked this journal entry.

I have to say the game still holds up and I think you could argue that it set the template for the modern shooter much like how Wolfenstein 3d set the template for 90s shooters. It packaged a great story driven singleplayer, fantastic multiplayer modes and it even included co-op with ZOMBIES... and this was nearly 15 years ago.

Next year will be it's 15th anniversary. An HD release would be amazing! I'd love to Return to Return to Castle Wolfenstein and I don't think I'm alone.

Asus vg248qe windows dragging (16 comments)
Posted by acid_reptile @ 08:27 CST, 1 March 2015 - iMsg
So i bought a new monitor because i thought my 2233rz is broken. i got some graphic errors now and then while playing quake. Fortunatly it was just my 560ti which was dieing slowly. (i was already on my last working DVI port. HDMI broke a long time ago)

Now i noticed that dragging windows seems to be much smoother on the 120hz samsung as on the 144hz asus screen. Is that normal? Not that this would be a problem. Just wondering. The monitor seems awesome for gaming, but i have to use this old ati 4850 HD. It does 200-250 FPS in quake, but my 2233rz is still going strong. I think about getting a new graphics card for the money, as i also play other games which only do like 45 fps now. (with the 560ti it was only 20-30 fps more, so it was time to upgrade anyways)

So someone noticed the same with dragging windows? Shouldn't it be much smoother than on the samsung 120hz?

Still no official word from logitech, but looks like the 303 is an updated version of the 302-- same shell but comes with 3366 sensor (like in the g502), rgb lighting, and maybe a braided cable? Also some different mouse feet to address the 302 wobble.

Question to Russians and UKR (cd prices) (17 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 04:14 CST, 28 February 2015 - iMsg
Hello. There is a possibility I'm going to go to Russia for a tour with one of my band.

I was wondering about the CDs price in Russia. In Europe, we sell our cds 8 or 9 euros, and our tshirts 14. How is it compared to the Russian prices at the moment ?

What price would be an okay price in your opinion ? For instance, what is the price of professional CDs like the ones of Metallica and so on in supermarkets (because we usually sell them cheaper) ?

Also, I might also come in Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia later on and possibly in Ukraine. So, baltic states are in euros, but not Ukraine.

Ukrainians, even if your money is probably going to fluctuate until there, what kind of prices in Hryvna would be affordable for a CD or a tshirt ?
