Acer XB241H (24", 1080p, 144Hz, G-Sync) (2 comments)
Posted by wn @ 18:14 CDT, 4 September 2016 - iMsg
I've decided to get rid of my ViewSonic VX2265wm (22", 1680x1050, 120Hz) and HD 6970 so I can actually enjoy modern games. I have the Acer XB241H (24", 1080p, 144Hz, G-Sync) and EVGA GTX 1070 FTW (+ other components) on the way.

Does anyone have the XB241H? I chose it since the 1070 should be able to provide an excellent 1080p experience (i.e. maxed out visuals), and G-Sync should help over coming years for single-player games.

*edit* Just to clarify, I'm asking if anyone on ESR owns the XB241H and has thoughts about it. The 1080p and 1070 combination was done intentionally.

Now available via extraQL's Userscripts --> Script Management view.

* Filtering (click "Flexible Filter" or hit Shift+F)
* Persistent sorting and filtering
* Redesigned table-based server list
* Custom column ordering (via "Custom Columns" menu item)
* Shift+R to refresh the list
* Other tweaks

Code-wise there isn't much in common with QLNAB, so there are likely some bugs to work out.

Quake Live Hook Manager (299 comments)
Posted by wn @ 08:35 CST, 21 December 2013 - iMsg
2014-08-06 Update: Apparently the recent Quake Live update broke QLHM, however I'm no longer maintaining the project due to a general lack of interest and the death of, upon which QLHM depended.

As an alternative I'd recommend checking out PredatH0r's extraQL project.

The QLHM source code is, and will remain, available at its GitHub location if anyone wants it. I've also attached two ZIPs: one containing the QLHM cache's userscripts, and another containing a dump of the QLHM userscript cache (which is in JSON and gives some meta info).

SCV Rush interviews Trance (28 comments)
Posted by wn @ 14:14 CDT, 2 September 2012 - iMsg
SCV Rush has interviewed Belgium Trance, best known for being the "tech guy" behind The GD Studio, Twitch.TV Europe, and Level Up TV.
Some time ago, I wrote up a recap article about the ASUS ROG Tournament, in which I raved about the production value put together by the GD Studio, James "2GD" Harding's esports independent studio project. I was able to talk with James' right-hand man and production guru, Cristian "Trance" Tamas, and ask him some questions regarding the ASUS tournament, his role in the studio, and some other random things!

[userscript] Twitch.TV Plus! (8 comments)
Posted by wn @ 10:02 CDT, 12 August 2012 - iMsg
I've written a userscript to make Twitch.TV stream pages a bit friendlier for higher resolutions. See the attached screenshot.

  • Larger video object (without popping out). The size can be controlled through the "Plus!" menu at the top of the stream page.
  • General style improvements, with the goal of making a stream page friendlier to those using "higher" resolutions.
  • Built-in script updating.
Note: Tested with 1680x1050 and 1920x1080... might not look great at other resolutions. link ( due to an ESR bug)

DaHang - In terms of my preparation and trying my best, no. I know I definitely could have won, so I obviously regret not doing so.

The PA Report interviews Tim Willits (256 comments)
Posted by wn @ 13:14 CDT, 6 August 2012 - iMsg
Ben Kuchera, of The Penny Arcade Report, sat down with id Software's Tim Willits at QuakeCon 2012 to discuss Doom, Rage, and lessons learned.

John Carmack kicked off his 2012 QuakeCon keynote by apologizing for Rage. He candidly discussed the driver issues, the marketing challenges, and the end of the game itself, which he characterized as being “not very good.” It was a conversation you rarely see from someone as powerful as Carmack, and it seemed to pull the crowd to his side from the first moments of the speech. It didn’t make everyone happy, however.

“I wanted to strangle him. It’s QuakeCon! Everyone fucking loves Rage here, shut up!” Tim Willits, the creative direct of id Software, told me in an interview the next day. He was laughing, and seemed to take it in stride, but still. Everyone in the room knew this was going to be a big story. “You don’t think everyone in the audience knows that ATI released the wrong drivers? Dude, zip it!”

ASUS VG2788HE - 144Hz LCD (3 comments)
Posted by wn @ 19:22 CDT, 26 July 2012 - iMsg

I've only ever used up to 120Hz, even with my old CRT. For those who regularly used over 120Hz, did it make a noticeable difference?

*edit* 1080p @ 144Hz... seems like it'd be getting close to the bandwidth limit.

[userscript] QL Extended Graph History (5 comments)
Posted by wn @ 11:07 CDT, 1 June 2012 - iMsg
This script increases the maximum number of matches tracked on the graph shown on your Quake Live profile's Statistics tab to 50 (see the news posts). Since only the 10 latest match results are made available at any given time, this script attempts to pull that data when you first connect to the website, and again whenever you exit the game.

NOTE #1: Only Premium and Pro users have access to the graph feature. This script will do normal users no good, and bad things will probably happen if it is installed. Please support QL if you are able!

NOTE #2: Since the extra match data is saved onto your computer, others will not be able to see that information when they view your profile.

NOTE #3: This userscript isn't magical. You will need to play games with the script installed before more than 10 matches will appear.

[userscript] ESR User Ignorer (42 comments)
Posted by wn @ 00:59 CST, 10 December 2011 - iMsg

Ignore certain ESReality users without breaking the thread structure. Blocked posts are replaced with a placeholder, which can be clicked to show the contents.

At this time, the list is managed through the "ESR User Ignorer: Manage List" menu command. This might change eventually.

There is also a menu command provided to change the color of the placeholder text.

This script currently only works with Firefox (Scriptish or Greasemonkey), since Chrome doesn't support GM_registerMenuCommand.

Let me know if you find any issues.

[userscript] QL Stream Notifier (+ESR!) (62 comments)
Posted by wn @ 14:34 CDT, 1 October 2011 - iMsg
This script displays a list of live gaming streams on, and updates it every 5 minutes (10 in versions before 0.3).

The list (provided by the excellent #Live.QL guys) is based on known popular streams, meaning there is no guarantee all streams will be included, or even that the stream will be showing Quake Live. Let me know if you feel a stream should be added or corrected.

If you use Scriptish or Greasemonkey, menu commands have been provided to allow customization of the notification bar's background color and force a list reload from the server.

Note: After some quick testing, the script appears to work fine in Chrome. Let me know if you find any issues.
