Beta starts soon, and ends soon after on Saturday 5pm ET, this beta has minor updates which they've not listed, and its purpose is to lead up to a bigger update which they've defined as performance related.
I assume loading times, net code, and possibly better FPS.
They've added extra mouse options like mouse accel, cap etc, so you'll have to do settings again. Filtering too I think? not 100% sure in total, as I set it on day 1 and left, but there are more options.
They've changed some spawns (first spawn on Dm6 was next to Nail Gun instead of Jump Pad or Bridge).
99% sure they have improved visibility too, dark areas do not feel as dark. At least on dm6.
Lots of changes on Ruins, too many little changes and not enough change logs!

Aside from myself, I see two potential areas I can improve on with my gaming setup for quake champs, but could do with some input as I'm a out of the obsessive hardware loop which is easily done when you stop playing hardcore FPS.
Mouse & Screen.
Currently using Xornet 2 which I like a lot due to its light weight, and ergonomics, and two side buttons. But after watching this review (made hard to ignore by him being a decent looking quaker - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBCQWTNVg2c), I'm kinda thinking there must be something better out there which offers similar weight, ergonomics. Does anyone have a problem with what he says about the offest of the mouse lazer position and is that a genuine concern or just placebo?
Currently looking at Ninox Venator which looks pretty perfect ergo wise and I'm guessing it has the latest tech.
Any other suggestions for mouse which is small, light, two side buttons and has great sensor etc?
SCREEN: Having been using a 4k 60hz screen as my main, I plugged in my old RZ2233 this weekend for a certain closed beta game and I could not believe how much smoother and better it felt. But its an old monitor now and one of if not the first 120hz flat screens they did.
What would be the best replacement for it under the £200 mark, and (I don't mind buying second hand for better spec), or spending a bit more if I have to.
More importantly, is it really worth me upgrading this, I don't want to throw money away, if I'm moving on from the RZ2233, I expect it to make a positive difference, not just on the benchmark, but in game.
Is there anyone out there who will vouch for saying you will be a better player on the monitor you suggest, vs the one I have and what aspects of your quake did it improve.
I have 3 spare keyboards too :]

Ok, around 1998 - 2002 I remember seeing this video demo for an FPS game and I have no idea what it is, but it stuck in my mind and I wanted to see it again.
It was snowy, with lots of huts and primitive houses and I think mountains in the immediate background, like some kind of town in alaska and the whole intro was played through the scope of a sniper rifle (which I think became apparent at the end which made it cool), so initially it was zoomed it on a target in a hut, then it zoomed out over a period of about 20 seconds across the city (was impressive in scale), before it showed the sniper pulling the trigger and the initial target was shot. The target MIGHT have been in a guard tower.
There was some eerie, low key music, and dogs barking. I also think it was at night.
Does anyone know what it was called?
£5 via paypal for the first correct answer.
99% sure it was PC.

Found a great deal on a GTX 1070 in the UK, £334.98 @novatech.co.uk. Ordered it yesterday afternoon and was delivered by 8.30am the next day. Even less if you sell your existing card on ebay.
Its not the "fancy fan" version, but these cards apparently run very cool anyway, so who cares. And its the pre overclocked version so a fair bit more power over most of the others so just leave it stock as these cards are pretty beastly.
Following on from my stunning predictions from less than a year ago, we're starting to see the fruition in Germany as predicted by those who didn't need hundreds to die to be right. Not bad for less than a year.
Attackers fitted my so called racist profiling 100%.

I don't really feel the reason (bandwidth) given was suitable, on top of which its one which can be easily resolved and I feel it sets a bad precedent.
Despite the post count, one can only assume the images and gifs on it are the main culprits (assuming the reason was bandwidth and not political)
So, I have identified there are 31 images on the thread which in total are around 5.32mb per page load (atm) which I have made easy to resolve and would take a few mins work, which is surely not beyond our admins for a thread with over 1300 replies, and less than a year old?
The below would take a few mins to implement.
As you can see only 11 of those images are over 100kb
So, I would kindly ask ( I sent him PM) pacman.pl to delete his gif image which is 1211kb as its not important to the thread and is the biggest hog.

So Europe, you're taking on a bunch of muslim refugees, mostly from parts of the world which blames you for destabilising them.
Do you honestly believe that every single one of them will forever be grateful for what you did for them and never turn on you, link up with other extremist elements in your country and one day look to harm your indigenous people on a grand scale?
Now think about it before you lie.
Think about it before your left wing, gullible, short sighted, corrupt minds dares to overlook in your heart what you know is true.
NOW. Knowing that, how could it possibly, ever be safe, or responsible to let these people into countries you know some of them will try to bomb, Mame, and kill in when they settled?
Seriously, how can you POSSIBLY be so short sighted to gamble (with fairly sure odds) with your own indigenous citizens lives when you have no checks in place for these people coming in?
I mean, its hardly a bunch of nobel peace winning scientists from iceland now is it?
Would you hire a babysitter without checking because she might be ok, and looks ok from the advert?
Would you sleep with a hooker without using protection, because she looks pretty clean?
Would take a walk in a lion pen, because its 200m away and it had food an hour ago and is lying under the tree?
I don't think you would would you because the impact affects you directly, so why would you import thousands of people who in your hearts, you know a % of them will turn on you in the worse way?
Happy to endanger your fellow citizens then, who you should feel a closer affinity to than someone you let, just in the same way you feel a closer affinity to family over the random person in the street.
Are you saying that the safety of your indigenous people is LESS IMPORTANT than letting these people in?
You're happy to gamble with that, knowing its a pretty safe bet what will become of some of these people?
Really, is that how Europe works now?
Are you saying all of these people are fine, and there is no chance or likelihood of bad elements being in there. Of the worse kind?
Because this is the logic that is going around and its going to come back in the form of death and destruction for your own people.
Anyone else feel betrayed, or is it just easier to supersede my inconvenient truth and label me as a racist and a horrible person?
(Just bear in mind when I am proven right and if dark forces have no deleted this thread that I will come back with the proof when it starts kicking off). No doubt in my mind.
And this is why the stance taken by europe on these issues is wrong, because as soon as you have a country whose leaders will gamble with your lives, you are finished. And it why British people will vote to get out of the EU.
People talk a lot of shit about Putin, but at least he puts fundamental elements in place to maximise the safety of his own people. Even if he's a little to lean heavy at times.
What do the rest of your governments do?
Silence you, and get you to buy into the cultural suicide of your own country and people?
I mean, if you're going to do that at lest do it for someone who can evolve the world instead of taking it back to 6bc.
It nice to know my life is worth risking to house ali bom bom, who realises he's living in a country he has no identity with, falls into the extremist hands (who he feels closer to) and plots my downfall.
Perhaps when you're pulling the shards of glass out your kids faces and reading in the morning papers how it was committed by someone whom a few years earlier you were welcoming into your country and paying them to be here, you might think again.
That for me is pretty good motive for not falling for the sob stories, as sad as they are, your GVT are playing roulette with your life as are you for supporting this strat.
That is the bottom line.
Now, if someone has a better bottom than that, then by all means, let us know.

My weight has gotten way out of hand the last 9 months, been doing relentless non physical stuff with work, and middle age is kinda coming up fast, suffice to say i am up to 19.3stone. That is not good.
270 lbs or 122.5 kilos.
That's heavier than Zangief from SF2!
So my dad pops down tonight to sort out some noobie PC problem and says he'll give me £500 for every stone (14lbs or 6.6kg) I drop, and if I drop 6 stone, he'll give me a £1000 instead of the £500. I'm not sure why the sudden showing of generosity, but I'm not questioning it.
Now I was actually about to start my diet anyway as I don't need someone to pay me, but this is a mega incentive because there's a lot of stuff I need to buy over the next few months starting with an RX100 IV next month, so I'm defo up for it.
I should say before I weighed in tonight I purposely ate a massive Chinese and drank several pints of fluids to have a nice memory of what it was like to eat and drink what i like and to give me the best chance of getting the first £500 ASAP.
I will be weighing in Boots tomorrow and post my weight slip once a week to keep progress, so this is a running journal which I hope will inspire other fat asses.
Despite my weight I can still drop and do 20 pushups, i'm knackered after it, but its not like I can't move or anything. But its not good, and with the money at stake its CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

What's going on with FIFA, all of a sudden I heard there's a big thing going about finally getting them to come clean, after thinking they got away with. I must have missed all the run up to this somehow?
Gotta love blatter saying any corrupt people will be kicked out etc, the guy is such a saucy C**T.
Seems like the majority of those involved in deciding on WC 2018 and WC 2022 are being hung.
Does anyone really believe this is American Imperialist BS or the USA actually cleansing what deserves to be cleansed?
Could be some awesome rage and drama unfolding from this, so worth discussing!
So I hear one of your homeboys got muffed up again and you're all out raiding the local footlockers as a 'protest', so if you're black and want to stay out of the trouble, listen to me.
I'm British and White, which means I have a pretty solid genepool for getting away with some fucked up shit over the centuries and I want to share it with some of you who cannot ever be part of this.
1) Stop causing trouble and breaking the law, this will generally stop you from being in a position where you are arrested. This is the most effective tip I have to offer.
2) Consider that the biggest killer of black people is other black people.
3) If you are arrested, don't talk shit and don't start fighting with the police and definitely don't run away. These people have stressful jobs where at any moment, they can be shot due to the number of guns so freely available, so when they catch some chopsy little shit whose mouthing off and kicking off, Shut the fuck up, sit down, and accept your fate.
Play up and you're gonna get it. I know friends in the police, and I can assure you whether you're white, brown, or yellow, you give them shit and they'll give you a tuning if they are in a position to get away with it and that's how it should be.
If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about and you can bitch all you want about it to media after it.
You have to accept that a world without police would be chaos, as would a world where all criminals were allowed to get away with resisting arrest and trying to get away with it.
4) Ask yourself why you don't go on protests when the same thing happens to white people, are you really just the most pure form of racists on the planet, or are you riddled with self pity stemming from tales of racism from your great gran daddy, who in turn told your parents all white people are evil and now you're just a by product of that like this guy?
I know its only 4 points, but I feel these 4 points will save so many of you from peril and help to raise social awareness among your demographic.

I'm looking for information on where I can host information online which is not subject to being taken offline or interfered with regardless of content,and it has nothing to do with hosting any kind of porn or sexual content, or anything to do with pirated files and links, and neither is it a site designed to expose gvt's, though its possible content on the site will discuss that (among many other things) but its not for example something like wikileaks which is flat out designed to drive a wedge, or anything which is generally considered criminal behaviour. Though the latter is becoming worryingly semantical these days.
I understand that ultimately anything can be taken offline if the right people are upset with it, but I am looking for ways in which this content can be as difficult as possible to remove.
Are there certain types of domain names that make this harder, so for example I am from the UK, would a .co.uk domain be easier to control than say a .nz?
Ideally I would like a .com as its more global and its intended audience is global, but happy to go with less known variants if that makes them harder to knock offline.
Based on the gist of what I have said, does anyone have any info that might be of use?

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.

So Russia has proof it was Ukraine, and Ukraine has proof it was Russia.
So how about this.
PUT BOTH leaders of both countries on the spot, saying that whoever is proven to be found as lying by a committee of experts in a PUBLIC TRIAL, will have to either back up their bags and go back to Russia, or give up that part of the Ukraine to Russia.
The beauty of it is, whoever is lying will either be exposed as being so, OR will have to pull out of the bet and will face further condemnation and doubt throughout the world. And there is nothing like a babies brain splattered all over the run away to hit home.
Simple but very effective and the only person that would not think so is the person who knows they are lying.
Its a win win.
Proof must be conclusive, or its null and void. Even if one of the leaders goes back on their word, they'll face so much negative PR it won't be worth either of them doing so.

Does anyone know how to get a stock intel heat sinc fan to run full speed, I tried everything, even bypassing the motherboard and hooking it up direct to a PSU molex connector ,after I tried everything in the mobo with PWM/VOLTAGE etc.
Most I could get out of it was 2000rpm and it was quiet, I'm sure the last time i tried on my q6600 many years ago that bad boy went so fast it gave me a draft and I needed ear plugs, but still.
I have long suspected intel have been fucking people over with these heat sincs making them next to useless, but at least before you could run them full speed and while being noisey, would cool much better.
Have they capped the fan speed?
Google is no help cos I already tried everything I found short of spending 40 quid on a new fan JUST BECAUSE it won't spin at a decent rate.

I was going to let this go but I am concerned the hierarchy behind the scenes of this site are showing cracks which could ruin the ethos of the site, so I thought I would bring it to everyone's attention seeing as the admin refused to read my concerns, so what else could I do?
Basically, I posted this video in a thread on this website.
Slight troll post, but come on!
I had the post removed (not nuked to show others) and a message from Twister_ who has shown such inconsistent actions before.
"deleted your zhu video from unrelated forum topic" (Fig1)
Was it because I posted it and you thought it would bother me and make you feel strong, or is this a general policy by which you live by?
I was just curious as to what motive has resulted in a tangent like spike in your morals vs the thousands of examples I could show which highlight the inconsistency in your apparent reasoning?
Within 24 hours that thread will have all sorts of unrelated stuff, tell me Twisty, will you be consistent and true to your veiled reasoning, or will you expose yourself as biased and selective (based on user id) and just another admin on a forum abusing his concessions?
Hiding behind the rules when it suits them and letting it go when there is nothing in it for him?
One can only assume its personal, and while I would love to be enraged and give you what you want, I would rather expose the gaping holes in your administration duties, wink and say I actually take it as a compliment.
But I would also advise (for your own ego and development) that when you do such a thing, whatever feeling of elation you might obtain in the short term, will be compounded by the undeniable long term logic of my reply which you will see everyday when you let posts go which are along the same lines of what you are apparently using to justify your actions.
And only then, will the hierarchical superiority of my post make inescapable sense.
And no bit of php, or online friendship with an admin can rid yourself of that truth.
Now, its probably no coincidence his reply was the only one that allowed him him deny the fact of the truth which faced him and not get his ego ruined from his initial goal. Despite me being confident he did read it which compounds him further.
But I'm concerned that the admins on this site are not only behaving consistently, but refusing to the read the concerns of its users is IMO entirely unacceptable.
I did not wish to make a can and dance about this, but when my concerns fall on deaf ears I don't know what else I can do.
"The most important rule about being an admin on ESReality, is that it does not make you more important than other readers. Admins must not use or abuse their access to the site for personal reasons. If moderating a certain thread puts you in that position then simply don't do it - leave the moderation to someone else."
I think the point I made about consistency was a good one, and I feel the way with which it was tossed away only proves my point further.
Now I know some of you might overlook this cos I wound some of you up, but its dangerous precedent (as it could easily apply to you one day) I think and one worth exposing in order to make this community a better place for all to enjoy.
Made a video of me posting this as I now feel I have to :(

Ok, so it sounds more like Jamiroquai than DP, but I guess I know why they quit for a while. Its probably a decent album in its own right, but based on the stuff they did in the past and what I was expecting, its not hitting the spot.
Anyway does anyone have any more bands like how Daft Punk used to be as I'm in dire need of some new tunes and I can honestly say I do not think a single track off the new album is going to make my playlist.

I did some 3D work for a news channel a while ago, it was a 3D flythrough of the osama bin laden compound.
Several things have been de-classfied in the world of intelligence and military geospatial circles about the layout, so I released the standalone executable to the public.
its the most accurate version in existence, the internal version has an interior and 50% higher quality in geometric and textures as I know stuff gets ripped so I will be keeping it back, but this is the public version, designed for a basic dual core processor and a humble 8800GT.

I recently saw a documentary called The King Of Kong on NetFlix and its really good (everyone here would enjoy it), which got me thinking there should be a thread on here about films/documentary where videogames/computers or elements of that sub-culture feature in it to a notable degree.
Ok the game is not great, but it has a score and the chance to beat other nerds and that makes it kinda addictive.
As I always claim to be the best all round gamer in the world I feel its only fair I open up the account with a respectable 2796 points after less than an hours play, I won't invest more than 2 hours into this so if I beat that I'll update. No point looking on google, I already had the designer ask how I beat his score by 500+ so guess you're on your own.
I think 3000+ could be possible with unorthodox play.
Just a tip for anyone in the UK, if you ring up to cancel your virgin broadband citing the costs as too much, they'll get back to you with a cheaper offer.
They might not initially do it, but if you hang in there they should come back to you on the last day or so with a counter offer, assuming they do not try to keep you there are then.
Best thing to cite is "talk talk" as they are quite cheap.
At this point they'll tell you about how fast theirs is and reel off how much you've downloaded, basically ,they are trying to convince you to stay, if you remain firm and say the cost is too high and you really only need a basic package and cost is the #1 factor they'll.....
A) reduce it there and then.
B) seem like they are going ahead with the cancellation process and ring you back on the last day or so.
C) call your bluff, the latter seems to not be a desired option as they make money from you off the phone as I don't think you can just have BB.
I was actually genuinely looking to lower costs as I dont really game anymore or download so the risk of being cut off or switching to ADSL (which might impact gaming) were not factors for me. And I felt I was paying premium price for lite use.
Worth a try, you can always change your mind on the last hour of the last day. But I am the 3rd person in my family to try this and its been the same outcome every time...

I was thinking it would be a good idea to post a thread related to the technical/under the hood side of rage. We all know its not the next big MP FPS so no point in whining its not this or that, at the very least its a pretty game and someone here could easily mod it into something, or maybe like me you just want to fly around the levels and look at the pretty graphics.
Updated texture packs etc
Links to 3rd party sites that deal in editing for this game.
I have not looked into anything for this game yet (and popped it on for an hour), but my initial interests are (and what I assume others might want to know).
1) How do you access the console/list of cvars? A) The newest patch to RAGE may disable Dev Console.
2) How do you access the editor?
3) Is the editor a complete overhaul and included?
4) Is it heavily reliant on 3rd party modeling apps?
5) How accessible is Megatexture for the masses over basic U.V.
6) Can you host your own games?
7) make your own test map.
I'm gonna look into some of those base questions tonight and will reply assuming no else does.
Add questions or your own findings in to the related matter!

Sucks, him and his crazy side kicks made me laugh a lot over the years..and always will!
Looks like he was drink driving from the pics which he tweeted a few hours before his death. Not surprised, he died doing something silly and irresponsible, but still a shame for him and the other guys family.
Sony has been given access to the website of the chap who first hacked the PlayStation 3’s security, thus enabling the playing of pirated software. This lets them track the computer details of anyone who has ever visited the site.
Sony has also been given access to Google, YouTube and Twitter files relating to the hack. In theory this means they could trace anyone who has ever checked out Hotz’s online blog; who has viewed/commented on the YouTube clip explaining how the hack works or who has contributed to the lively chat on Hotz’s Twitter account.
Ok, so I thought of a simple and effective way to ensure that demos/configs from big events are made public within a reasonable time frame.
(I.E. within afew hours of them being played without need for someone to go round each pc)
At the moment there are three problems.
Casting and streaming is inconsistent and costly.
(GTV does not exist).
Demos usually arrive the next day (or longer) becuase its a lot of hassle to collect them one by one. by which time, they lose a lot of their value as there is no reason why demos could not be made available straight after the game.
Id could and should implement some kind of automatic ftp/demo upload system into the game, but until they do that there here is a work around.
Install and configure this to every tourney machine before the event. ok, its an hours worth of donkey work, but that not too bad is it?
I'm assuming anyone competent enough to be in such a positon will have no trouble working out the rest?
Simply find the local folder on the computer where the demos are saved to.
Input the ftp details and specify a scheduled task so it uploads the contents AUTOMATICALLY. Every couple of hours.
Hopefully, once its been setup in the day it should all take care of its self. I.E. you won't need someone to keep going around each pc.
You can define any LOCAL folder, so CONFIGS and DEMOS are the obvious ones of interest.
And simply make the FTP address available on websites.
That way, every single demo and config from every single player is made available within a short period of time of them being saved.
I assume autodemo record is all working/possible etc?
Now we get demos/configs in near realtime.
Potential problems are upload speed spikes, again, anyone worth their salt can control this so even if the game is uploading demos while I player is playing, it can be done with so little bandwidth that it does not matter.
If that's still too scary for the player, then simply schedule it to do it once at the end of the events, but on the same day.
Possibly get the players themselves trained up on it so they can also have a hand in controlling it. THey should recognise without specs, they have no events, so its the least they can do:)
So no excuses anymore for a lack of demos or configs.
It takes no time at all and works really well. Its free and easy.
There are other ways, but the concept is there and I know it works as I just tested it and its working fine.
So no more whining, at least until someone implements this properly!

There's a really nice video blog by old school (well he's nearly 40) Street Fighter player Jeff Schaefer over at youtube. Talks a lot about the scene in the early 90's and the early versions of SF and upto more modern times. So if you ever wondered about the pro arcade scene or missed out on the whole arcade thing then this might be for you.
The guy does known what he's talking about aswell cos I recall reading about him and tomo even in the UK when I was a kid.
Its in 8+ parts, its quite a cool story even if you're not into SF, as it talks a lot about the dedication which is required even for today. Even then these guys were playing 8 hours a day.
As cool as online gaming is, imagine everytime you played a game it was a like a lan tourney?
That's how it used to be in arcades before consoles got so good.
A – The Atari logo, B – Bomberman, C – Chocobo (from Final Fantasy games), D – Donkey Kong’s barrel, E – Earthworm Jim, F – Falco (from Star Fox games), G – Game Boy, H – The Halo logo, I – Ice Climbers (ancient NES game), J – Jill Valentine (from the Resident Evil series – we think), K – Kirby, L – Luigi, M – Mario, N – The Nintendo 64 logo, O – Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, P – Pac-Man, Q – The Quake logo, R – Ryu (from the Street Fighter series), S – Sonic the Hedgehog, T – Miles “Tails” Prower, Sonic’s buddy, U – Umbreon (from assorted Pokémon games), V – Viewtiful Joe, W – Wario, Mario’s nemesis, X – The Xbox logo, Y – Yoshi, Z – The Zelda logo.

Really stylish looking and well done campaign by La Coste, its like an interactive magazine. Can defintely see this as the future of electronic magazines in a few years when ipads become a bit more affordable and tools are written to produce this quicker!
Takes gore to a whole new level. Along with the 3D effects its a whole lot of fun. You'll be hard pushed to go for a few minutes without smiling or ewwwing.
Its not going to win any "BAFTAS", but it just trolls you for two hours with naked woman, sexist jibes-both ways (but mostly against women), and more dead bodies than every friday the 13th film combined and its good enough inbetween to keep it from being boring.
If you like the sort of "Stifler" American Pie humour, combined with ridicilous amount of gore, some I PROMISE you you will never have seen before and will shock you, go see it.
Its gory, but its not psycholocal gore like Texas Chainsaw, HellRaiser etc.
Oh god, is google now trying to rip off "Bing" by placing annoying pictures on the search engine, or is this some sneaky attempt to get people to sign up, so they can "customise" (posh for unbastardise) the front page?
I don't have, want or need another email account.
Apparently you can't change it even if you have an account without resorting to script blockers. Whatever.

"OnLive – say it softly and not within earshot of Sony, Nintendo and co – circumvents the need to trudge to the shops, hand over your hard-earned cash and trudge all the way home again with the latest hot game. Instead, this ‘cloud’ service will deliver top games direct to your PC or TV screen instantly, using a small receiver unit that hooks up to your existing broadband connection."
Ok, first up I'm gonna pay £10 to the first person if someone can solve this problem, because I take it very personally when I can't fix something with computers and I want to know if its possible.
Especially as this isn't rocket science.
The problem is relatively simple to understand and I have fixed it countless times before, but this time it won't work and my ego wants to know for sure if its possible to fix realistically.
OS=Vista Home Premium. Semi modern Acer laptop.
Problem, I can only get local connectivity on wireless wifi, now before some of the slightly informed start talking about delete cookies, checking DHCP, unchecking IPV6, Winsocket fixes, I have done all this ok and quite a bit more.
I have tried it on several different modems and routers and its the same thing. It will only connect locally and its sometimes says limited or no connectivity.
The ip address is starting with 169, which ok is one that's set to stop any conflicts it it can't see DHCP, but even when I do it manually I can't make the connection.
Here is the interesting part.
The night before, the guy installed norton (i know) and the install went wrong. When he tried to uninstall it said it cannot find the path. Even when I downloaded Nortons own uninstaller utility it would not get rid of it.
So I'm thinking/hoping that norton has royally fucked something up (like the stack/registry) to the point where the only real way to fix it is to reformat.
Amazingly I have not tried to reinstall norton and then uninstall because I can't get hold of the guy till next week and I never thought I would be so baffled to ask for help.
So before I give up and put it down to an impossbile fix does anyone else want to get one over me and earn a whopping 10 pounds by suggesting how I can solve this problem without taking the easy way out?
I have done system restores.
I have unsintalled drivers, and as I said earlier quite a lot more.
What is even crazier is even when I tried different wireless network cards the thing STILL won't work and posts the same problem.
Oh, I have also taken it to two IT friends to look at, which was funny as they usually come to me, but desperate times call for desperate measures. They failed, despite holding down well paid I.T. jobs.
Oh and even the fucking vista repair thingy didn't work!
my only option at the moment is to get the norton disk and try to reinstall and hope it I can then unisntall it then, and undo what damage it might have done.
That's my last option because apart from that I'm all out.
If anyone on the tubes has a wortwhile suggestion and does not find writing it down I'll gladly try it!
I done all the DNSflushing etc, I'm all out!
if its not solved here in public its gonna be filed under "realistically impossible to fix".
I have tow more things left to try.
Search for virus.
Reinstall Norton and then uninstall.
If no answers then I'm nuking it.
It gets better. I got the norton 360 installer off the net to try and reinstall. When I try it says I need to uninstall the previous version first, which of course is proving impossible to uninstall.
Even 3rd party after market uninstall programs won't install.
So I'm not clutching straws with...
Virus on the PC.
Impossible to fix unless I get the guy who wrote Vista to come to my house. I can live with such a defeat!

I got a few of these lying around but I think its time I get rid of them and centralise everything to one good one.
I need something with some sort of automatic encryption because I'm always losing them on a tempoary bais and I figure its only a matter of time before I lose it for good.
Fingerprint seems interesting, but as long as its really quick and secure to authenticate and it encrypts automatically it should be ok.
I like the idea of the U3 sandisks. I.E. essentially taking apps with you.
i guess if some of them come as waterproof aswell then even better.
Size wise I need at least 8 gig, 16 would be great, 32 gig if its not priced too stupidly.
Anyone got anything a bit different in this department?
Automatic encryption/decryption (after handshake ofc) is my main concern and I don't want to use 3rd party apps like Truecrypt on existing drives. I just want something that takes care of all the donkey work.
Would also consider the faster esata drives if it has a dual socket to support USB too.

Man www.Shoryuken.com has some complete twats running it.
Don't get me wrong, its is the ESR of StreetFighter and has some clued up people on there, sadly it has so many corrupt people on it, capcom employees, and a few gay admins its all sort of pally pally hush hush. Blurgh.
I got banned by the fat old guy in the peach shirt for slagging off the character named after the guy in glasses. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrLZaKe8Hxg
I got banned today for being critical of an IN GAME character called Seth, the irony was about two hours later the people in the forum were crying because seth was banned from the upcoming WCG tournament for basically all of the reasons I was talking about.
Yet instead of listening why, they took great offence and banned simply because it was true and they did not want to hear it.
Then they were acting all confused as to why he was banned.
(SETH is basically a scrubby broken character that makes the game look flawed (and is favoured by such people-think die hard German RA3 players) and was named from one of the admins on the forum-seth killian. So being critical is very bad over there as the site is such a kiss ass I might have to make a better one)
(imagine saying promode is crap and getting banned for it on ESR!-Yes that's the level of sensitivity we're talking about here so as you can imagine, there isn't much scope for anything else. Its all sort of sickly civil and false. I thought the whole point of the internet was to be more liberal with thougths and opinions)
At least ESR has that core aspect in place for the most part.
Tolerance! (yes banning me now would be low-but remotely funny for sub 50 IQ)
I did troll the shit out of the forum before i left despite them banning my I.P. (oh please) but I'm not quite done with them yet, they'll serve as good motivation for my play in 2010 where I plan to play a little bit of super at LAN.
So just a heads up as I think some of them are gonna' come gunning for me here by the time I finished with them, so could be entertaining :)
I can't help thinking ESR has made it diffuclt to to not offend people on other game forums though, you call someone a name and you get banned without warning, or in this case, if you're critical of an IN-GAME character you get banned.
But really that place has some seriosuly fragile people running it.
If you're bored and fancy some easy trollings, make an account and see for youself.

Two pissed up chavs pick a fight with a couple of blokes in drag. They're both from Bonymaen, which is a pretty dodgy area, anyway, little do they know that the people they pick on just happen to be a bunch of cage fighters.

Add a street fighter tab please, seriously.
Capcom has finally confirmed the widely rumored followup to the smash hit Street Fighter IV. Borrowing the SUPER title from the 90’s (and same exact logo), super implies bigger, badder, and beastlier. This sequel is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated fighting game sequels in 10 years.
Information is pouring out of Japan, just after the TGS show has ended. An interview with Ono (http://tgs.gamespot.com/video/6230545/), has revealed some juicy details about the game, including some of the new cast. T. Hawk, and Dee Jay are included, as well as a new Korean Tae Kwon Do marshal arts expert named Juri, who is rumored to be one of Seth’s henchmen.
Some of the information was listed as two new characters, Juri, and Hakan (Hakan being a Arab grappler associated with lots and lots of oils), and EIGHT returning cast members from other Street Fighter games. Dudley, Ibuki, and Makoto from the Street Fighter III series.
From the Street Fighter Alpha series, we have Cody, Adon, and Guy, and from the Super Turbo series, we have T. Hawk and Dee Jay. We will have to wait and see what Capcom reveals to see if any of these rumors turn out to be true.
Expect massive changes in all the old returning cast as well. Improvements and overall gameplay will be fine tuned to make this the best Street Fighter to date.
Coming to XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 in Spring 2010! Get Hype!!

Awesome. Long overdue, but thanks for clearing out on the trash. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20090922/video/vuk...bfa63.html
Shame on france my ass, if (Britain) made them less welcome in the first place they would not be flocking there in the first place.
And maybe just maybe, some of these idiots would stay at home and make their own countries work instead of jumping ship and bringing their fail elsewhere?
The idiots that run my country are slowly starting to realise how they fucked themselves with the immigration problem.
I'm glad to see people are starting to take direct action.
If i was there I would I would have danced a jig while singing "hit the road jack and don't you come back no more no more".
Très bien, merci!
I officially forgive france for placing "0" on the roulette table.

I'm trying to collect some benchmark figures before deciding on whether its worth upgrading my collection of Quadcore Q6600's for the new i5 or i7 setups, or whether it might just be worth investing in some fancy CPU fan and overclocking them as they are are all running at stock 2.4 Ghz atm (on stock cooling!) and I know they'll go way beyond that but I want to see what sort of result people are getting with other cpu's particually you little rich kids with x58+i7 920's etc .
So if you have a Quadcore setup, particually an i7 setup (but other quadcores will do), let's be even bigger nerds and download Cinebench R10 , run the following test by clicking [Rendering x CPU]
It don't take very long on a semi decent pc, I guess Dualcores can try too, but as this is a thread based app, I don't see how you'll be able to compete against 4 cores, but always happy to be proven wrong.
Then if possible just post what your score was and basic spec.
use CPU-Z or look under system/general control panel if you're unsure.
Time Taken to complete render=1min 51sec
OS=Xp 32 bit
If you wanna' go mad with with you spec and setup upto you.
I think ball park would be fine though.
Thanks for anyone who joins in. It takes less than 2 minutes on a semi modern pc.
Note:This test does not represent in game performance. Just the raw power of the CPU.

Ok, youtube sucks as my recordings were just over 10 mins so they rejected them, I didn't fancy editing them as I encode direct to H.264 (I think you need quicktime to view it!), so I just dumped them on some random FTP space.
Filmed with a digital camera, quality not great, but more than good enough. Hopefully this will fill a gap until quadv.com and djwheat.tv get the proper vids online. Then I can update this to just point theirs. Hopefully there are no legal problems:)
I DO NOT have the dm6 game which is a shame, but I do have the rest plus the reward ceremony. I also ran out of memory just as Rapha came on stage.
Got the entire 2 minutes of Tourney 4 footage before someone broke the entire internetz in the whole of dallas and made it impossible for the people there to put the demos on a USB stick and upload with an alternative or mobile net connection.
Initiative is something that comes from within.

I hear its been leaked on torrent and should be available to buy over the next week or so.
So, basically I have not really played this, I need a single character to learn who is gonna stand the test of time and be able to compete at a high level without any noticeable problems.
I just don't have the time to pump in anymore, so I need to stick to a single character and learn the matchups.
I don't even know all the players, but I ultimately favoured Guile/DJ/Sodom/Guy/Orchid/Sarah/Kabal/ in previous fighter, but I understand most others across most games.
I don't want (apart from casual fun)...
(probaby akuma-as again, hugely popular i forsee)
as my mains because I think they are either gonna be too borting to play as, or everyone is going to know the matchups inside out and back to front.
My style of play is quite aggressive, not afraid to skank, prefer flashy players, so lots of chains, and big combo potential is good.
I'm a bit like a nigga' in the sense that I would rather lose and look good than win and look bad. So long as its not all the time.
But I'm aiming for top 1% of the player base. Expeting to beat most and lose to the handful of elite who put in silly hours.
So I need someone who can go the distance.
Preferably someone who has some new mechanics so the style of play is not played out, despite having a different graphic as that will be a huge advantage when facing the old favourites and the fairly big time advantage a lot of people will have had on the ps3/360/Arcade.
I also think this site needs a street fighter section added the database, its a pretty huge game with around 3 million units by 2010 spanning 360/PS3 and now PC and plenty of tourneys with some of the most dedicated gamers out there.
Also, does this game have a training mode where I can just practice combos, throws etc?
Thanks for any useful help. Are there any dark horses based on those things I said?
If you think I have said something wrong about those I'm not into I'm all ears.

Oh noes! N.Korea are going to wipe you off the map.
Seriously, is anyone else from the west sick and tired of treating broken nations like these with an ounce of respect, when they talk like this?
Just nuke them, seriously, do the world a favour and rid the planet of nations like this. It might cause some short term mayhem, but in the longrun, its about as logical as putting a dying dog to sleep before it causes many more problems.
You can't honestly expect anything good to come from this?
You think a few millions litres of oil and bit of humanatarian aid and a few fake diplomats pretending to be friends, half of whom probably sleep with horses on the side will resolve anything in the most fundamental way?
It'll always be a case of playing the nuclear war card when the chips are down. I hope for one second the GVT is not sleeping on this and being too laxed to the point where they think no nation is stupid enough to do the unthinkable.
Western nations should NOT judge other nations by their code.
Its partly why they got into trouble with them in the first place.
Seriously, if its not the Iranians blaming the UK for the protests, its some other fucker threating death and destruction.
Either do it, so the US can respond with the rock solid excuse and wipe your entire country and wretched gene pool off the map, or just live happily ever after with your brainwashed society.
Just stop fucking moaning (and clogging up my RSS feeds)

KInda' fun game between me and Lukek, decided to stick a sign on my monitor saying "slow down" and it seemed to be working for a little while as I usually just play like FFA.
Also had a bit of railgun rage and whined so thought my demise would add something to it.
Pointless watching pro's on ZTN, its boring. Though Lukek is annoying with the railgun, I just have no patience for that .
Made even worse with id lowering the damage then making it easier to hit.
you don't need to be Miyamoto to realise that totally defeats the purpose of any changes.
While I'm not a pro, I think this is one of the finer examples you'll see of a multi talented gamer in quake as I choose to spread my skills in gaming across several genres and the actual development, as opposed to just a handful of maps on an old game.
It does not take a genius to realise that these brainwashed idiots are simply spitting their dummy out in the hope of receiving more humanatarian aid.
I used to do the same thing as a kid, scream and pull a tantrum till I got that toy and you know what, my parents were stupid enough to fall for it aswell.
I wish the west would just leave these screwed up coutnries to fight among themselves. If they die, they die. Who cares?
All the West are doing is sticking their fingers in everyone else's pie and all that happens is was become involved in their problems/affairs when we don't need to as we seldom inherrit anything but problems and hate.
N Korea could be wiped off the face of the earth tomorrow and most of you reading this would still be more upset if your dog died, don't pretend otherwise.
Nothing good can ever come of hanging around people with problems under the disillusioned notion that the world can live happily ever after.
And do you know what the biggest irony is here?
Pursuing that notion causes the very thing they are trying to avoid.

Aaron Anton "HELL" Jones (Dignitas) VS the Russian legend Cooller.
The map was "Aerowalk". The event was EMS4 which was played online May 3rd 2009.
HELL's ping around 62.
Cooller's was late 50's.
(There was a another on dm9 but Aaron pm'd me to say he didn't bother training it because he knew he would lose. Given the closeness of the other games I'm gonna give him the benefit of as the doubt) But its on the site if you want it. Its one sided so not much point ans we all know Cooller has/had the best nodm9 in the world.
