What heaphones these days? (17 comments)

Budget £100 maybe more if worth it

For gaming mainly, movies and other crap too. Use them every day. Have HD595's, they've been ok. The state of play is one can hangs off my ear and the other is still attached to the frame. After 3 weeks it's got to be too much of a pain in the arse so need some new ones. Fire away.


Many thanks all, I ended up ordering Beyerdynamic 990's an amp and clip on for £200, so double my initial budget.

My reasoning: I was concerned with the Sennheiser design. Where my pair cracked it's likely to do so again. The Bd's have gto that covered, also the modular design were you can replace the pads and bits and pieces was a great attraction. As far as sound goes my current set are as good as new, the pads are tatty and they are in two bits. With a pair of Bd's this wouldn't have been a problem.

So with that I think I will have them for a longer period of time and save some money. So I splashed out and bought an amp which by all accounts does make things sound a lot better.

Going Premium (44 comments)
Posted by dadS @ 12:35 CDT, 24 June 2011 - iMsg
After ages I've gone premium. I had an epiphany last night.

I thought the amount of enjoyment I've had out of quake over the years is tremendous. Not just playing but also watching tournaments, etc. And for £20 I get extra stuff and more importantly I support the game.

For the hours I get enjoyment out of it it is well worth it. I waste more than that on a quite night out having a few beers. Even though I'm not playing much these days, it's still a drop in the ocean in the grand scheme of things.

QL site without plugin (3 comments)

Is it possible to view the ql site without installing the plug-in. Work don't mind us surfing when it's dead but they'd be fucked off if I had the plug-in installed, thinking I played games at work.

p.s. looked at a profile yesterday without any stats?? one match was in a tourney style they came 8th on a map which thumbnail looked like dm6 but was called space camp. wtf?

quake f-ing live (55 comments)
Posted by dadS @ 20:52 CST, 15 December 2009 - iMsg
Quake perfection was summed up to me with cooller 2003. It was a tourney that jizzed not only skill but style, the epitome! I remember fox playing sick, red... (whose config I was eternally grateful for), playing out of his skin but not managing - Lexer, just omfg and z4 sublime and one of the coolest guys too play q3, fazz owning it up at times. gay but hey I like the game.

Personally I've played at an ok level - enough to get a good game out of third tier players (not ql third tier players). One where strategies count. Respect that some new guys are going to quickly come up through the ranks and be way better. But what the fuck is it with ql that it makes a big difference (bitching) my screen shakes like a shitting dog and you loose to players that can't even time and some can't even strafe properly!!

No offence to them, I can see they are trying but I can tell when someone can and can't play. In q3 they'd be pissed on.

It's way too random and fucked up. But I do love the game, just wished I could play on that level again.

<3 ze beer missles

edit: fuck sake sick of ++++++back games, run away, run away, only chance you'll win. wish I could +forward

crt care (6 comments)
Posted by dadS @ 14:39 CDT, 15 October 2009 - iMsg
The tube in my iiyama pro 454 popped about 12 months or so ago and I replaced it with a Samsung t220 syncmater lcd. Which understandably is pretty crap for gaming.

I also bust my mates ancient pc a while back trying to fix it and he's just bought a new one. I went round and came back with a free pro 454, lucky fucking me!

I've got dual monitors set up on one card, to get 125fps out of the ql I swap the primary monitor and disable it using ultramon.

When not playing ql I use the lcd as my primary, enjoying the screen real estate. It just sits there running, no screen saver, so I've decided to disable it and switch it off.

After a lot of deliberating how should I care for the crt as I really don't want to see this one go bang. Will swapping to secondary to primary, disabling, switching off etc, which is quite often, will this do any damage?

Defrag in QL (3 comments)
Posted by dadS @ 18:17 CDT, 1 July 2009 - iMsg
I've uninstalled the quakelive plug-in as it was generally doing my head in. I'm waiting till it gets a little bit more mature before I get back into the groove.

I was thinking though in the mean time that it'd be awesome if id chucked a defrag mode and also a fs mode in to the mix. Just so you could do a few runs etc. This would mean you wouldn't get over rusty with things but still have a blast.

Or even more 'fun' modes like freeze tag (sorry freezer taggers?)

Do you think it'll ever happen?

QaukeLive Rail (25 comments)
Posted by dadS @ 17:55 CDT, 13 June 2009 - iMsg
The quakelive rail is meant to be easy to hit. So when I joined the beta program I thought excellent being generally a 40-55%+ rail guy in vq3 cpma. It was my best weapon, loved it.

So why can't I hit anything with it in quakelive? These days I'd be lucky to get 25%+ in a game.

I copied my accel, sens, mouse, graphics, settings from my cpma vq3 cfg thinking that it'd sort me out.

Does anyone else have an issue with it?

I'm sometimes struggle against noobs that can't even time and clearly have no strats. If I come across a half decent player I'm usually knackered. It's quite depressing =p

I try and get a duel or two on most days, have done for years. Over the last few months it's been getting harder and harder. The servers seem to very quiet.

My style is jump on and wait or see someone waiting and join. Irc is a hassle, it's always worked until quite recently.

I'm just wondering is every fucker playing quakelive or something. You see loads of people on here going on about how fucking great q3 is and then the servers are quiet.

Germany used to be very active and I hardly see anyone playing, same goes for a few counties. Another point is as ASE is borked, I'm using Maxbrowse filtering through cpma and vq3. I'm getting 76 servers, it seems low to me. What volume of servers are other people getting.

Mallet Finger (11 comments)

Knackered my finger while bouldering and now it's in a splint. No quake or exercise or pretty much anything else for six weeks - thank fuck I'm left handed. Not sure what I am going to do about work, as I type quite a bit. Time off sucks as we only get crap sick pay.

After coming back from the hospital I went to chill out and drove along a backroad, hit a deep and long pothole (covered by rain) and the car died on me. It's going to be an expensive job.

At least it's my mates birthday today and I'm can get shit faced so forget about yesterday for a bit.

Lenny Henry takes us through the best comedy shorts available on the internet, from the most outrageous CCTV to exclusive online TV.

Programs that use clips from the net suck ass imo. Get your own material. You get enough money BBC, ffs.

Unless they pay them or give credit, it hasn't finished yet.

Now I have your interest or not your here cos curiosity killed the fucking cat.

This is influenced by alcohol and hicups, which is a bitch to be honest.

A few of my mates have got pc's over the last year or so and slothley have got into 'esports'. Ok maybe not as such, well Gaylo.

When I always say stuff they don't understand like 'timing' they think I'm sad (fair enough in some respects) - I don't mind as its a laugh. But they do say Gaylo is the best game on earth, their first game and all, fair enough. It has skill involved but how do you describe that it's not on the same level as a proper dm series game.

They say its not a typical 'fps' game but then they take the piss that I abreviate game names (rctw q3 sof2 blah blah) - a bit later and it's a different conversartion and their saying noob and ownage, irl.

I play now for competition and fun, I came from sof2 and i thought I was ok (well it isnt hard) but you get to a 'proper' game and your serioulsy crap.

It's like they play at 100-280 ping in america and they think its great, explain latency and they like 'well we must be good if we get a flag' or 'are top'. Dont get me wrong I love my mates but how do I make them see, I dunno the something....... I'm on about, sense.


btw beer is good. well alcohol in general.

Well I dont normally do this journal shit but I have found the future and its garlic bread well type of.

yesterday was a good day, England won and played only average. unlucky Dutchies gg, bit divey like the others but hey fuck it. (no offence here just drunken fun, give it back by all means <3) played you portugays cant wait to play you lads and big phill should be fun.

Well bollocks to this gaming lark. As it is I wouldnt say its a Proffesion in most of the world. Some are lucky and good on ya. Instead of quake* it should be quake pro arena. Q3 (as a good engine and can be upgraded and coded better etc. well a good base) modified into a new game. modified, markfeted into a PROFFESIONAL game. Man put on the reatil box 'blah blah competions for £BIG_COINAGE' and all the nibs will by it.

for all i care but surely you can make it so it can be all dunno GUI or GIU ish so you have all your cmds set out and an explantion next to them and shit (for nibs and ease). stats for every consevable shit. ask and you get type of crap. MVD stop start rewind any think you can think of with a demo. You got bittons to do it all. So you can analyis with ease not all this timescale 0.4 and shit. If i want A bright yellow enamy i can by touch of a button. different modes is important too, core modes (that includes cpm and osp,defrag, freeze etc), fun modes, innovative modes. Have tv already setup for them. Fuck jo public hit them on top of the head with a 14 pound hammer. gamming is here and its at a good level. newbyfiy it upto a degree if its new but dont be gay with it i.e. patronising like richard from uk bb. people aint that thick. upgrade the graphics to sell more hardware if must but keep the shit real non of this css marlarki well tpye of but get it right.

so many things an be done big player base etc. next after a bit bring in other existing games hardcore shit QW and if you must cs. but tbh watching pro cs is ok. (in morning hit yourself if you read this as i never said that) nah it is.
fuck mickymouseupthearsesoft and its metrosexual xbox gaming. it has its place, on the subs bench. it has skill yes but the big games and there mods are in a different league. wc3 sc q seris ut series? cs if i missed some out sorry.

I play poker with some mates and after we play some console crap gaylo 2 or summat and man they are jizzing all over and tbh its thw gayest of the gay in everyway. (i say gay as in not againdst gays cos they are cool as in my eyes apart from if they are a nob but in another word for wank) but they dont seem to want to try cos they think they are cool. I have noticed some of my friens saying noob and stuff irl and i want to punch them dont no why but i do. anyways probably load if crap but i dont care cos i am trollied.

does any of this make sense i cant be arsed to read it,
