I'm currently reviewing the XL2740, which is 27" 240Hz. You can Subscribe if you'd like to be notified when it's live. All the finals from Quake tournaments that I cover online go up there too. I've no idea what I'm reviewing after that so if you have any suggestions let me know. I was thinking the ASUS Gladius II Origin but it looks heavy AF.

92% of my views are non-subscribers, lol! :'D

A standardised way to check QC hardware performance (58 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 23:50 CDT, 4 July 2017 - iMsg
It's impossible to -easily- set up a multiplayer scenario without multiple people scripting events, so perhaps follow this to quickly check without running a specific route. Obviously you'll get further reduced frames in a full match... plus it's BETA.

I've included results for low, med, high and ultra... plus experimented with each setting to find the most optimal settings for the current beta on my setup i.e. which settings actually change FPS. I'll be doing something similar for a 1080p vs 1440p video I'm putting together and figured i'd just export and compile initial data to potentially help others.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZoSTC...sp=sharing

I'm streaming using OBS Studio and NVENC at 720p 60fps. These were done live whilst testing a new monitor, I additionally included a set of results when not streaming for my settings in the spreadsheet. Streaming in QC tends to reduce your in-game fps in the region of 12-20. Which seems to follow an older video I produced using CSGO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6uaPD_5r4w

Perhaps this way you can compare with friends.

QL 125FPS 5 Year Anniversary - Twitch Event Reminder! (3 comments)

Hi all,

The 74th Edition, Season #35 Week #4, marks a five year anniversary - the first cup launched in April 2012!

http://www.plusforward.net/organizers/57/125-FPS/

If anybody would be nice enough to share the tweet that would be very much appreciated, twitch launched the new events tab so i'm experimenting with it: https://twitter.com/justnvc/status/846679153059532800

You can also sign-up to remind yourself of the stream on my channel: https://www.twitch.tv/events/1098

I'll hopefully see some of you on Sunday starting 14BST/18MSK. I'm sure Zlive will be streaming too.

Stream to ArenaFPS community on Twitch (3 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 20:20 CST, 9 February 2017 - iMsg
Hello everyone!

Today (technically yesterday... oops) Twitch launched Twitch Communities.

On your dashboard you can now select:
a) The game you are streaming, and
b) A community to stream too.

Your stream will continue to appear in the usual game tab, but also a community if selected. Communities are designed to filter exactly what you want to watch e.g. you might create a 16 star community and a 120 star community under Super Mario 64 for speed running. Since all of our Arena FPS games are niche right now, I figured one community for everybody, to cross promote games and streams would be nice.

So, obviously I've created an ArenaFPS community. It'd be cool if people could select it if streaming one. Just enter "ArenaFPS" as your community.

Aim Hero - Accuracy Practice on Steam (17 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 08:56 CDT, 17 September 2016 - iMsg
Here's my first launch and impressions Twitch VOD.

At the moment you can't strafe, jump or change various colors, but it's definitely a great start for a indie development team with little to no budget. I received the key for free, but at £3.99 on Steam I think it's definitely worth it. You can set your identical CS/Quake or Overwatch sensitivity.

I'd love to see a company like LogitechG invest in the game. It could have other features like human benchmark reaction time test etc. I don't think it will "improve accuracy", but it's a neat tool to warm up with and/or get used to a mouse... it made me love the Logitech G403!

There's no option for Invert Mouse yet.

About This Game
Aim Hero is an ultimate solution for practicing firing accuracy to do better in FPS games.

Features:
* Mouse sensitivity settings imported from popular games;
* More than 5 training modes, 3 difficulty levels each (We are going to add 5 modes in few weeks);
* Detailed statistics is provided as each training is completed;
* The best scores are saved automatically;

Games you may use to set your mouse sensitivity:
* Counter-Strike: Global Offensive;
* Overwatch.

[FS] BenQ XL2430T 144Hz - UK (7 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 07:45 CDT, 14 June 2015 - iMsg
Hi all,

I have an ‘as new’ BenQ XL2430T which has been used since around January. Boxed with all cables etcetc. It also has extremely low latency thanks to Instant Mode and also the optional BenQ blur reduction mode which is pretty neat. I’d put it as being the best 1080p 144Hz monitor on market at the moment, the stand is probably my favourite part as it’s metal and ‘thin’ so it doesn’t get in the way.

http://www.scan.co.uk/search.aspx?q=xl2430t

Here was my review of it (purchased myself): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgYI2DVXnSg

I’m looking for £225 delivered, but will take offers. Cut £20 off the price if you can pick up from ‘Leicester’ area. If picking up I’ll give you free stuff from my collection of random crap that I can’t sell like a mouse or something. I have all warranty information should anything go wrong.

TY!

Plays.tv - Instagram for gamers?! (12 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 10:27 CDT, 31 March 2015 - iMsg
Utilizes NVIDIA ENC, AMD Game DVR, Intel QuickSync or Software based capture. The first 3 should give very little performance hit. Can record constantly or utilize the replay feature. When you close the game (or during with replay and minimizing) you can quickly cut and highlight clips to upload to both Plays and/or YouTube.

Pretty cool. I've been using it for the last couple weeks, makes life easier when you don't want to make over the top fancy stuff for YouTube. Could also be good for those of you that can't/don't stream but want to make quick content. You can also use it to cut up sections of stream vods by selecting folders with external files from OBS/Xsplit too. Also, the CEO (Raptr) is Thresh.

NVIDIA ENC: Requires GTX600 and up
AMD GAME DVR: Requires Radeon HD77XX series and up
Intel QS: Requires Intel i3/i5/i7 2XXX and up assuming onboard graphics... but you'll still need a dedicated GPU as your main.

ASUS RoG Gladius - 1st 2000Hz mouse?! (29 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 22:06 CDT, 30 September 2014 - iMsg
Product page: http://www.asus.com/Gaming/ROG_Gladius/

I have it, after day one it feels great so far. The build quality is outstanding, fantastic value for money in the box (removable usb cables with non-braided and braided options, replacement mouse switches, replacement skates, mouse carry pouch). Feel free to jump into http://twitch.tv/justnvc and ask any questions whilst i'm streaming and using the mouse. Some people might say it's on the heavier side though, but the shape compliments its weight and the grip is good.

It runs at 125/250/500/1000/1500/200Hz which I did not expect as of 1.08 drivers: https://twitter.com/justnvc/status/517145134606327808/photo/1

I'm using 1000Hz as it runs flawlessly at 1000Hz or below on my system (Windows 8.1). Both 1500Hz and 2000Hz were unavailable in 1.03 and 1.04 but did make their way into 1.08 released yesterday, they do not appear to be as stable on both my USB2 and USB3 ports but I would await testing from other users before commenting. Also, ASUS seem to be putting out regular updates which is promising, they are clearly aiming high with this mouse under the RoG brand. Regardless, 1000Hz runs great for me.

Anyone else got one? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts as I've only tested it on my QcK so far. I need a few more days using it before I'm willing to compare it to my old Razer Deathadder 3.5G (it is definitely superior to the 2013 edition) and new Logitech G402 in terms of performance.

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

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

Nordic participants only.

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

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

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

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

I'm pretty sure the Maddelisk result is BS, but not as BS as the 55-65k scores that are impossible to hit. Hopefully Logitech will address the latter for those that can participate. There's 5 mice up for grabs every week of which I assume will run for the next fortnight.

I'll post a full review of this mouse in the next week or so, aside from it being on the heavier side, it's the first mouse that's made me not want to return to my Razer Deathadder.

GLHF!

Okay so I'm constantly seeing certain people moan week in week out that about the track choices. This is just a suggestion, but if you hit up MonstercatMedia and provide a track name and url to the video here, perhaps they'll consider downloading the mp3/flac and then adding them to the playlist.

Go respond to this tweet! Insomnia is the UK's largest gaming festival, last hosted Quake4 at i32 in 2007. It's now at the Riccoh Arena in Coventry, essentially a football stadium with easy access to everything. There's on-site bars, even a casino for the Poker players amongst you! :D

Here's some albums from i51: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mpuk/sets/

It'll probably do nothing, but still! D:

CMStorm Alcor & Mizar (3.0ish) (18 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 06:09 CST, 20 February 2014 - iMsg
Slightly smaller than the 3.0, but ergonomically said to be closer to it than the Razer Deathadder and Zowie EC1.

Alcor (Optical) €34,90 +Shipping [Takasta Review]
Mizar (Laser) €44,90 +Shipping [Takasta Review]

AFAIK this is the first revision of the Alcor on sale at cmstore.eu, they have mentioned a second revision that will be on sale soon based on feedback. I'm hoping they'll have taken into account some of the concerns regarding increased smoothing due to higher dpi and materials used, specifically housing it in the Mizar shell with the additional side grips would be ideal given the non glossy sides will be awful for those of you with dry hands (myself included).

At that price though it might be worth a pre-emptive purchase for some of you, such a steal.

nvc's ql coverage 2014 (41 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 22:49 CST, 5 February 2014 - iMsg
Hi all,

I want to stream some Quake again this year, preferably TDM/CTF for fun since duel is pretty much closed off between the tournaments on offer. I will not upload the majority of games to YouTube, so unless somebody wants to upload them (feel free to do so, just give credit by linking my twitter in the video description), you'll have to deal with Twitch VODs. I don't know how much I'll cover this year between work, but I'll do it when I can.

BaseArena Nations Cup TDM Q1 2014
Week1, Group C - France vs Hungary
Week2, Group B - Sweden vs Czech Republic [ YT VOD ]
Week3, AFK!
Week4, AFK!
Week5, Quarter Final - Benelux vs Italy [ YT VOD ]
Week6, Semi Final - Benelux vs France [ YT VOD ]
Week7, Grand Final - France vs Russia

BaseArena Nations Cup CTF Q1 2014
Week1, Group A - Benelux vs France
Week2, Group B - Poland vs Sweden
Week3, AFK!
Week4, AFK!
Week 5, Group A - Benelux vs Czech Republic

If you want to keep up with my streams, follow my Twitter / Twitch for updates.

Will add them as they come, enjoy... or don't.

The mouse kinda sucks if it gets dust in the sensor (i quad rocketed myself a few times), but aside from that (can be avoided if you clean/blow on it before you play) it was a great mouse, even if i stopped using it.
