Failed to initialize Steam ?? (13 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 05:13 CDT, 1 July 2016 - iMsg
anyone know what is causing this? i validated the files on steam (properties -> check integrity) and it says it's fine. both launcher and steam library give me the same issue.

alt/Tab -> weird desktop glitch (4 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 15:20 CDT, 5 June 2016 - iMsg
i was checking some new video settings (did not save anything) a couple days ago and since derping around, whenever i alt/tab to desktop, the graphics are all screwed up, like if the brightness and the contrast were turned all the way up. wasn't like this before, i could easily switch to desktop without any issues.
any idea what it might be?

cant post images )or rather, i can, but they need to be approved ...)

1500 ELO for new players is stupid (138 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 04:20 CDT, 29 April 2016 - iMsg
pls fix nau.

srsly, the new elo rating is fucking every CA shuffle and making shit unplayable (insert CA joke here). 1200 start score was way better. just had to play a game with two "1500" in team, one 16% LG, other 13%, neither knows what bridge is, one of them can't even jump pillars.

OR, make the tracking by registartion only; sign up with your steam id to have stats sent from server, so we know immediately who's a nab and who isn't.

Workshop Maps (3 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 20:48 CDT, 26 March 2016 - iMsg
i'm trying to figure out a couple things about the workshop maps - those maps you download when you join a weird server, for example, overkillPP.

first, i'm convinced these are downloaded only as temp files; i can for example, launch a devmap if i just played it, but if i close QL then the map disappears.

is there a way to save them permanently?

if so, where do they go? q3base? in steam?

finally, is there a list somewhere, or a browsable page, where i can see what maps are published? i really love some of these old fan-made maps (like Opium) and would like to play them more often, even with just bots if necessary.

that's it.

how do i set up my QL server? (3 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 17:52 CST, 25 February 2016 - iMsg
anyone have a tutorial on how to set up a QL server? idiot-proof is preferable.
also, will it run fine on a haswell build? 8Gb, 4 threads 4ghz dedicated. not looking to rent an actual server.

tnx. the things one has to do to play with 7 LG ..

there are other maps, y'know (27 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 08:48 CST, 12 January 2016 - iMsg
disclaimer: lolca thread

i'm happy that after steam move / new servers i can find a CA game any time of the day, but jesus.
callvote dm6 / hiddenfortress / overkill

even playing almost lost is a rare occurrence.

i've downloaded half a giga of new (RA3) maps, like nicotine, and played them ONCE. besides, why do i need five different versions of The Edge?

QL has some sweet CA maps that you'd be surprised how well they play. Sacellum, Canned Heat, Revolver, Eviscerated, Hearth, Nameless Place, Sorrow .. plus the two hells gate, and the "egypt" set.

calling Siberia, Asylum or Quarantine is not "being adventurous".

give peace a chance, mmk?

:D has anyone tried this insane game?

don't watch the totabiscuit review because as always he cocks it up.

think doom 2, but spells instead of guns. AND you level up. BUT, you die, you' dead. no going back to previous levels. whatever health, and mana (ammo) there is on that level, is what you gotta work with. And no they don't reset each level.

Now figure a shitton of mobs spamming attacks at you that the game looks like a 2d shooter, but in 3D.

(are you thinking, this could help me work on my QL dodge? yes, it could.)

fun gaem. kinda expensive at $15, would buy for a fiver.

jumppad to RA no longer lets you jump all the way to the RA platform.

does anyone here play this game? (6 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 10:59 CDT, 10 June 2015 - iMsg
i'd like to know your thoughts on this FPS that has become my passion; if any of you play it, if you tried it and didn't like it, anything you got.

Blacklight Retribution.

i'm not looking for buddies ingame. Just curious what good players would think of this.

My deal is that i was playing QL CA nolife and still sucked at T4, never got past 1600elo, with clan and all. Then i decided to take a break because the butthurt was becoming real, and i tried a couple free games, didn't like them, then found this one and loved it.

But i can't get out of my mind the question "what would happen if Strenx or Cooller played this; would they rape everyone?", so i'd like to turn this to you, do you know this game, and what do you think of it?

(im seriously into blacklight, religiously 2 hours minimum every day, totally lost my head)

tips on W7 tweaks? (yeah i know) (29 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 17:48 CST, 26 November 2014 - iMsg
foolish me posted the same on QLf and got zero responses.

i'm wondering if there are any useful windows 7 (x64) tweaks to network settings and such which can improve my QL game.

i know it sounds like i'm asking for the magic button but any help would be much appreciated. since i suck.

4 years playing FPS and i still hit 24% Lg vs decent players, 30% vs noobs. i'm also on ISDn (dont ask) and sometimes i get ridiculous packet loss.

currently using timenudge -10 on QL, maxfps 250 .. picmip 10.. not much else.

the censorship on QL forum. what ? (86 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 19:36 CDT, 9 October 2014 - iMsg


i had about half my posts removed; one what from the "why are people so rude" thread, when the OP posted "i'm too busy to change all 1500 of you" , i replied "do you *have* to change us?".

(note that i had been defending said QL player until then)

i fail to see the offensive nature of that post.

i also posted in a thread about someone complaining about post deletion, and suggested that "go to esreality for a forum without censorship"..

obvious deleted is obvious.

anyway, i'm not sure, sycnerror or who, is responsible for this new wave of nazism, but if you have them in your friends list give them a shout that this is not acceptable.

(in lieu of not acceptable you can use the words: bad, disrespectful, immature, paranoid, oppressive, or any other negative emotion you feel like expressing).

new TDM is great + discuss (96 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 00:36 CDT, 2 October 2014 - iMsg
last year TDM was exclusively a T4 affair and games took 30 minutes to start (and 40 to finish), without "grace" (meaning a early win when a team dominates the other).

And they would dominate - it was always 40-150 when one team got all the stacks and the other didn't spawn with enough MG bullets to get one kill, let alone against 4 rail/LG/rox with 150/100.

Now it's easier. But is that a bad thing?

Faster pickups respawn rate, generic ammo boxes, all the bane of FFA is a boon for TDM. I can now enjoy losing 90-150 instead of being squashed like before.

The dominace one team would gain by controlling the map now means less. The game is closer to what FFA was pre-patch, and in my opinion this is much more fun.

also, first post yay!
