QL servers closing (86 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 22:07 CDT, 15 August 2015 - iMsg
I usually filter servers by country but today decided to look at the global status of QL and realized there are tons of servers missing. The one I missed the most is Paris based servers, but now, tons on my vincinity are dissapearing as well. Did some research and apparently a lot of people is complaining about this, and it seems the business that hosted them are going bankrupt.

(@sponge) toronto, spain, chicago, and sydney exist no more due to out of business stuff.

It seems more and more servers are dissapearing at an alarming rate. Im assuming this is expected due the fact QL will go community based again after the next update. My question is: What role will the pro subscription have on the next update if you can't spawn servers? what differentiates you from standard that will make it worth paying?
Right now, for me the pro subscription is useless. All of the "in my vincinity" servers are gone, I can't play with a stable ping. What's the point? Will I get a refund for this?
I hope the community spawns lots of servers worldwide, because right now its looking pretty bad, less servers daily.

Aliases don't show up when I press tab (5 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 12:58 CDT, 12 August 2015 - iMsg
I made some aliases and I want to save time by typing the first letter and then pressing tab to have the alias name automatically writen so I only have to press enter, the thing is they don't show up when I tab. They do work tho if I type them manually and all show up when I use the alias command so they are there.
Why aren't they working with the tab autocomplete thing?

Diferent configurations depending on map (17 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 16:26 CDT, 10 August 2015 - iMsg
Since the new QL maps have ruined it for anyone that plays with the classic r_mapoverbrightbits 5 + r_vertexlightning 1 configuration because they look way too bright and you are forced to play with the cap value depending on the map, im asking: Can you somehow script it in a way so you dont have to play with the overbrightbitscap value going from 250 to 170 to 200... etc to fit your prefered config for each map? because it's incredibly annoying.

GUI Timers for newbies (27 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 14:12 CDT, 11 July 2015 - iMsg
I've heard there will be a pretty big update after QCon.
Well, my suggestion is that you add the same timers we see during spec, to newbie ranked people, and low medium, then after that it's time to man up and put your timing skills into use without timers.

This way, everyone that is new to the game will realize the importance of timing, will be aware that timing is a thing. When I started ages ago I never paid attention to it, if I would have had GUI timers when I started, I would have realized how it's a key point. What we have now where the item shows how many 5 second are left are also helpful for newbs.

This is the correct way to do it, not inforcing it into everyone and ruining the game. A standard needs to be set, where medium+ players should be able to play each other ranked without timers at that point. I say medium and not high, because you need to start playing without timers as soon as you are decent to not train under a fake scenareo and to avoid getting used to it too much to the point is counterproductive once you play a real match once you are good enough. I repeat that this should be just to aware clueless people that timing is a thing, not an actual way to play the game.

Cant get 1:1 with MarkC's fix (15 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 10:31 CDT, 30 June 2015 - iMsg
I use the 7th spot in the Mouse settings slider in Windows 7, the one in middle (6th position) is way too slow for browsing.

With MarkC's mouse builder, I created a reg file for the right settings, but I get red numbers with MouseMovementRecord. It seems the only way im getting 1:1 is if I select the 6th spot in window's mouse settings, which is annoying since that means I would need to go there and change from 7 to 6 everytime I want to play.

So my question is, how to get 1:1 with other than the 6th position?
Im using a WMO with default hz settings.

Cant play game that use EAC on Test Mode (8 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 21:13 CDT, 13 June 2015 - iMsg
I just bought this zombie survival game which is incredibly addictive once you get in, it's called 7 Days to Die, im totally loving it, first time I get entertained with a videogame in ages. Anyway, the game uses this sort of PunkBuster thing called EAC. The problem comes when I have Test Mode enabled so I can overclock my mouse to 500hz. EAC doesn't let me play with Test Mode on...

I have found a workaround which consits on doing this every single time I boot Windows so I don't need Test Mode enabled to run at 500hz:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4RwaI4mn6Y

As you can see it's a pain in the ass.

Is there any way to automate this, or just any way to make EAC work with Test Mode enabled?

RAM errors only in dual channel (No comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 06:24 CDT, 23 March 2015 - iMsg
I still have my good ol DDR2 memory rig, but a long time ago it started to have random blue screen errors, and random ass windows errors in general. It was the ram, as confirmed by memtest.

So the thing is, when I set them dual channel, I get the errors.
When I set them in single channel, I don't get the errors.

It's 2GB or ram, 2 sticks of 1GB (yes shitty). Im looking forward to an upgrade. I'm going to buy 4GB (2GB each) and test in double channel. Worst case scenario is it's the motherboard but I get to have 6GB in single channel, better than 2GB which is a pain in the ass and im struggling to browse the internet these days.

Everything at default timings and voltages and same shit happens.

Let me know if you have any ideas.

otherwise they will fail hard.

People is not going to pay to even be able to try and pay such games. They need to be teased first with free content. Learn from LoL, do not learn from QL. Take the only good thing about LoL (free content with unlockeable content via exp points, so both wealthy and poor people can can compete), and take the good things about Quake (badass sounds, graphics, general aesthetics, and the solid gameplay timetested by God for all ethernity).

New MOBO, new CPU, new RAM, and new fan for the CPU.

For audio, video editing and gaming. Got a 7850 and a nice Enermax 720W PSU with a R4 case so im set with these, just need to get these 4. My 2 gigs of ram are making me insane, but my current mobo got DDR2 RAM so it's kind of a waste of money to invest in DDR2 when I could save that money for "the upgrade".

I want the CPU to be as silent as possible. Im looking at these huge Noctua products and they look great.

Drop some suggestions.

Alisases dissapear when I load my cfg (9 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 18:33 CST, 7 November 2014 - iMsg
Im using ezQuake and whenever I enter a server I have all these nice aliases, not only the ready one, but all the maps on the server, modes and so on.

When I load my config (cfg_load cfg.cfg) all of these disapear. The only ones that remain are the ones that I have set no my actual cfg file.

My question is:

1) Why does this happen and how do I avoid this from happening?
2) Where is the autoexec for this game? I want my cfg to load every time I launch the game (without problem 1 happening)

PS: Kinda unrelated question: Whats the cvar equivalent to autoaction in q3? (take screenshot, screenshot+demo.. etc)
PS2: Why the pointer goes to shit when im browsing the menu?

The original Q3 announcer posted a clip (93 comments)

http://clyp.it/xw3fi5uv

So why in the fuck ID didn't contact the guy in order to not absolutely ruin a fundalmental part of the game's aesthetics? I can't focus anymore when I hear vegeta saying "immmpressive" in a ridiculous manner. When you used to get an impressive or an excellent with the old voice you got that adrenaline rush, that extra motivation, same for when the countdown ended and you heard "FIGHT", and same for "you lost the lead" or "you have taken the lead". The voice reflected these feelings better. Now with this, all I get is a cringeworthy whenever I hear this fucker.

I even got some newbs without Q3 as reference to play QL, and they said the announcer guy sounded a bit stupid (some played UT tho). Then I showed them some Q3/QL videos and they said "much better".
A cold blooded arena demands for a low tone, distorted, computerised voice. The new voice is way too fucking human sounding. Too bad id has no aesthetic sensitivity to notice all these objective facts in order to avoid ruining the game with these details (for me this is not even a detail, it's a fundamental pillar of the game).

So what are you waiting for, SyncError? what are you waiting for to contact Xian and fix this fucking mess for once? And don't try to sell me the "original announcer DLC" or some shit because that's just insulting.

I would understand if you add a "blood and gore DLC" to avoid being rated M, so only that DLC gets rated M which is pretty clever (even tho it still sucks and the ideal would be to have it ON by default, but anyway ...)

Another thing i've noticed A LOT is how every single person I show a videofrag to, gets dissapointed with the visuals of the game, because videofrags nowadays use high resolution textures, custom effects, motion blur, gore and of course, the original announcer.
So what are you waiting for to improve the game in this basic department?

Ok, let's say a noob ruleset is needed (62 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 09:49 CDT, 14 August 2014 - iMsg
to save QL from bankruptcy, because they don't know how to come up wiht actual matchmaking (the true solution), so they go cheapo trying to get new players by Halo-ifing (shittifing) the game and hoping noobs will stick to it once it goes Steam.

Anyone can give me a decent argument as in to why, why in hell the classic (aka REAL Quake) gameplay is pay only? just why in hell sponge? just why in hell syncerror? just why in hell anyone? Whats the point in any case?

With this, what you are doing is giving noobs the feeling that actual Quake is what they will be playing for free, and not what they CAN NOT experience unless they pay. They will not be able to test for free, for themselves real Quake gameplay. In case they are curious, they will need to pay for it, and since they can't train under real Quake settings, as soon as they find out they have paid only to get beaten the fuck up, they will just continue playing the comfortable-lazy noob gameplay which was available for free in any case. As soon as noobs realize it's not worth to pay to get beaten by a million frags, they will not care to pay for it. Which puts real Quake even further away from being even tried out by the adventurous noobs that want a real challenge. They are FORCED to pay now. Who is the dumbastic moron taking these decisions in id software? For real tho.

What has to be left clear for everyone here is, REAL QUAKE is what you are going to call "classic". Every noob must know that they are not playing actual Quake. So I vote for "Quake ruleset" and "Noob ruleset" simply put, in these literal terms. They must know they are noob, and they must know they are not playing true Quake. You know what I will hate, when these kiddos think they are though shit braging about how good they are at Quake, but then you find out no one of them plays actual real Quake and no one plays against you, because you will be "the weirdo that plays that weird 'classic' pay only gameplay" and the actual Quake gameplay will get ostracized even more, by people that thinks they are playing Quake. See how objectively stupid making classic aka real Quake pay only is? Give me a solid argument you marketing geniuses at id.

No one wants to pay for a cut version of 1999 (no custom content, no custom servers as in renting your own servers, no LAN... etc)

You haven't even done any major changes to the game. Everything that has been added to baseq3 was already done by the community for the community FOR FREE (OSP then CPMA).

It's a shame the best game ever has to belong to such an increasingly shitty company. Im calling this out: Not even the massive advertisement campaing that is launching it on Steam can save the game if it's still the same graphics and limited content and most importantly, not free to play.

"Why doesn't the game look the same?" (32 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 14:43 CDT, 31 October 2013 - iMsg
This is what I get when I convince people to try out QL after seeing some epic frag movie with cool gibs on, motion blur, HD textures, rocket and shaft eyecandy, and so on.

I remember when I started back in 1999 as a total newbie, it was great, endless hours of fun playing with 16 people in a huge blood mess, with full blown graphics. Now, QL feels so sterile, all this newbie fun factor is lost because there is no gore. Most people i've shown the game become bored, this coupled with the ridiculous non-pro limitations (QL needs a "insert famous MOBA game" type business model, but I wouldn't go on about this now).
I explained them how to use CPMA and they are creating custom games now in any map they want, loading a lot of bots and having a blast just like I did back in the day.

In other words, add in gore back, add in all the eye candy, give the game a facelift (probably port it to idTech 5 without compromising movement and feel -Q4 failed there, remember how blocky and shitty the game felt-, add in ragdolls physics for the corpses as well -I had kids laughin at the fact the model died on the ledge of grenade launcher platform in ztn, we can't have this happening in 2013-, boost polycount on maps and models -with the posibility to undo all of this for the nostalgic and people that do not care about graphics- and stop asking people to pay for 14 year old content -most of them being released by the comunity for the community for free ages ago to boot-. You should be able to slowly unlock it, and paying should be, in any case, optional. Some useless awards that have no-ingame impact isn't incentive to keep people playing when they are this limited unless they pay.

Add in other heavily demanded features such as proper RA3 mode implementation, and the awesomely cool Tournament mode from Q4 (one of the few cool new things in Q4) that would make you feel the excitement of playing a small duel tournament anytime, again, more incentive for duelers.

As someone mentioned before, id has the potential to do something great with Quake (what game can claim decades of history?), but of course, at this pace someone else will claim this spot in the future with some dumbed down version of the original, doing everything else right (good business model that allows custom games for free, matchmaking, ladders, proper advertisement..) and take the title of the oficial competitive 1v1 game when the MOBA craze fades out.

I would like it to be smoother, so you can make tiny movements with your arm and it would translate accurately in the game.

Im going to wash my QCK heavy before I buy anything just in case the problem is the mousepad and not the stock feet. I dont really remember how a new QCK heavy feels anymore.

WTF is going on?

spectating cfg (6 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 07:44 CST, 20 December 2012 - iMsg
While spectating, how do you:

-Force the model you are spectating to be the one you play with.
I find it very annoying to spectate with other player models because the jumping sounds and damage sounds are different.


-Use your HUD instead of the one that appears while spectating.
Also annoying to have the defaut timer on there.

-How do you enable and move the items timing? They seam to appear randomly depending on the server or when watching demos and they appear on top of the ammo status bar that I have on the left.

When I play with bots everything is smooth. As soon as I jump on a server I get models sightly warping. I notice this specially with rockets and grenades. The trajectory is not 100% smooth like in Q3/QL or when I play with bots. No packet loss and around 43ms.

Thoughts?

do you think bst will replace your wmo? (16 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 19:58 CDT, 6 October 2012 - iMsg
If the mouses by bst are THAT good that they become the official best mouse and you own a wmo, will you really be able to move or will you still use it out of habit/nostalgia?

Do you think it will be good enough that it retires the wmo by finally getting a perfect combination of solid sensor (imo, ime, wmo...) and good materials? (not shitty and cheap cables like the wmo, cheap plastics and so on).
Do you think it will dissapoint just like every single mice that attempted to dethrone the big 3 by Microsoft?

Anyone has noticed how using 3D items can be a big advantage sometime? Like on ztn (RA) or dm6 (RA) you can see the armors in angles that you can't see when using simple items.

I find 3D items unplayable (TOO distracting and i've tried disabling the bouncing thing) but knowing my enemy can see some items are up and you can't it's pretty annoying. Is there a way to make 2D items big enough so you can see the RA in ztn from the bottom of the map for example?

If im on a 16:10 monitor using a 4:3 resolution like 800x600, should I set r_aspectRatio for 16:10 or 4:3?

And does r_aspectRatio even work? I can't change it, it always stays to 0.

dodging and shooting (140 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 18:14 CDT, 18 September 2012 - iMsg
I can clearly separate two kind of players, those who can dodge and shot at the same time and those who can't. Even if you've played for years, you always eventually end up encountering some dude who can outshaft you because of the way he moves. He is sort of zig-zaging on a weird way that you can't predict. You would imagine "well, if he is zig-zaging like crazy in such a way, he is compromising his own accuracy" but he still delivers 40% lg on you. Whats going on?

Are they using these zoom scripts or are they this good? Im good at lg but some people dodge in a way that I just can't put my crosshair on them for a long time. While im trying to get them on there im lossing a lot of health because im getting shafted all the time. Any suggestions?

Basically, what they suggest is:
-Removing cache
-Trying a different browser
I've tried both.
Then if it doesn't work they basically tell you to go to other place with a different ISP and buy it from there. Or use a proxy (something which seems very dodgy, doing a transaction throught a proxy? ...)

They also tell you to send an email to the support theam which they will not reply to. And what can they do anyway? They say the problem is your IP location can't be recognized by Geoiptool. Mine can't ,but it can be recognized by other sites such as:
http://www.iplocation.net/

It's clearly their problem because they:
-Are using shitty technology to trace IP locations
-Are not giving any detailed explaination of what is going on besides an stupid Error page with a "funny orb image". And this has been going on for months.

Not content with ruining the free experience, now they want people to go throught the annoying task of finding a working proxy and then doing a transaction throught it which sounds really dodgy. Way to go.

Eyecandy is crucial (51 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 21:35 CDT, 28 July 2012 - iMsg
What got me and most of the players into Q3 as a kid was creating an FFA match filled with bots and seeing what at the time was unparalleled brutal action. I spent literally entire days playing on maps like DM17 and these space maps were players would jump to the stars and you could blow them up and see the gibs flying in the air everywhere playing with full on GFX.
The weapons, sounds (from the epic badass announcer to weapons etc), characters and generally the aesthetics felt brutal and simply perfect, as some sort of interestelar gladiator arena. Everything was spot on.

What im saying is: Real newbies need this kind of shit. You need the shock factor. Then hopefully they will start to see beyond this and appreciate the intricacies of fine tuned 1v1 gameplay. You got to make it feel solid and brutal. Particles everywhere. Even destructible enviorements. At least partially. All the walls and different textures can be blow up and the room would get filled with flying pieces of bricks, broken glass and blood. Of course you can't blow up walls, but partially, as an added GFX to enhance the experience. Max Payne did this in a nice way years ago. This could be exploited a lot with up to date technology and no one has done it the right way yet.
Remember the first Matrix movie, the scene in the bank? The particles must look like that, and you could watch the replay of the fight in slow motion and it would be awesome.

Also, you gotta add motion blur, the proper one, like in Crysis. It would really add dramatism and make it more brutal, during close fights specially. Like when a player gets shot in the feet with a rocket and he is propelled in the air rapidly, you see the blur on the model and it's awesome.

And of course all other kinds of industry standard eyecandy shyt.

I guess you are keeping the maps closed. something you can have fast tactics on and read the player movement, and not these shitty open areas in modern games (Shitmania). So this basically means you can push all these GFX further since the computer will not suffer as much due the maps being smaller.

Of course add all kind of options so you can turn all of this shit OFF and have your good old Quake r_picmip 5 for us experienced players (even if I still enjoy a nice FFA with full GFX from time to time myself)

On the importance of marketing (93 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 05:38 CDT, 29 May 2012 - iMsg
I said a lot of times, so here it goes again:

Q3/QL is the definitive competitive FPS, you CAN'T surpass it, you start changing it a lot and the result becomes a reflection, a vague cheap shadow of the original Q3/QL vibe. They hit the nail on there. It was a unique time, a unique era of inspiration. They can't even match it.
Yes, QW and Q2 are amazing games, but with Q3/QL they got the perfect graphic aesthetics AND the right balance between speed and tactics.

Now, we have "Shootmania". If this shitgame is any popular is thanks to the MARKETING that these guys can do off a game. There's no excitement of the game itself, but about how so many tournaments are including the game (which means money) and how a lot of pro-players are going to play it.
They made Trackmania world famous as an official "professional competitive game". Only thing you need is ads, ads, and ads. Ideally a TV ad. Put a cool short fragmovie, put some trendy music that kids like, explain to kids this is the next level in competitive gaming, explain how you can travel the world making money playing the game, and throw some fucking competitive OPEN LAN tournaments with really juicy cash to win, in a way that you dont need to be top3 to get a decent price, but the top10 guy already gets a nice quantity. Put money into the goddamn marketing and tournaments. I guarantee you'll have kids starting to play Q3/QL.

IT'S ALL ABOUT MARKETING. You can make anything famous if done right. Obviously id fails at this. And thanks to it it could become the begining of the end of Quake, (right now it's in a coma).

Dissapointed with UBUNTU (53 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 06:20 CST, 18 November 2011 - iMsg
Hi, im using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I have a lot of stuff on there, from class and so on.
Im quite new to Ubuntu. I wanted to play some games. I noticed a really poor performance on 3D games, and I realized the nVidia card was not being used because the driver was not installed. I have a GT540M on my laptop. So I went to System->Administration->Additional Drivers and the nVidia driver was found as missing and ready to install, so I clicked and waited for it to install. When it was done I closed the window and restarted. When I tried to boot up, I only got a black screen with "Ubuntu Login", I logged in, tried that "sudo gdm service restart" cvar and still no GUI. Then I decided to uninstall the nVidia drivers with sudo apt-get purge nvidia and then sudo reboot. This time I didn't even had the "Ubuntu Login" thing, it was jut black. To access the Ubuntu Login again I had to press F6 while I see the Ubuntu loading logo for a couple of seconds before it goes just black. Or also with the Recovery Mode. In the Recovery Mode I tried the check for damaged packs options or something like that and still didn't work.

More stuff i've tried:

Pressing "e" to access the grub thing and change the "quiet splash" for "nomodeset" then pressing CTRL+X. I did this, and after pressing CTRL+X a shitload of words appear like if it was loading, but then I go back to the "Ubuntu Login" black screen. If I press "e" again and check the grub, the "quiet splash" line is still there and not "nomodeset".

When I tried to boot up, my screen went black. I see the Ubuntu logo for some seconds, then it's all black and nothing happens. Im not sure if it's actually loading because I had my sound on mute. Also I don't see any HD activity when it goes black.


I also installed laptop-mode-tools trying to fix the annoying famous "hard disk clicking" noise after rebooting after installing the nVidia drivers but I guess this has nothing to do with it. I also uninstalled the laptop mode tools and same happens anyway.

Wtf guys? I just wanted to play a bit in Ubuntu, and wasted all nite trying to fix this. Now I can't study or do anything school linux related. It's sad to aknowledge I would have done this in Win7 with 0 problems

Hope I get a solution, because i see myself having to install everything again. Lame as fuck.

Gamma keeps resetting. (38 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 18:25 CDT, 4 November 2011 - iMsg
Bought a laptop a couple of weeks ago (Asus n53sv). Running Windows 7. Im playing normally, and the gamma will go dark all of a sudden, randomly (like every minute or two?). What I have to do is, for example, if im playing at 1.2, then I have to change it to 1.21 (or any other value) and go back to 1.2.

It also happens every time I go to window mode then fullscreen again. Also happens with ezQuake, and not sure if it happened with QL.

I've forced the power saving options to be off, i've forced to always use the nvidia card and not the integrated graphics, i've enable/disabled options on the nvidia control panel like power saving, CUDA, multiple monitors support, vertical sync, and all that. It keeps happening. It's really frustrating.

I updated the nvidia graphics.

What can I do?

Weird stuff on my laptop (48 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 19:17 CDT, 17 October 2011 - iMsg
The problem is that the gamma gets dark randomly (like every minute or two) and you have to change your gamma to any value, then set it back to where it was (for example, if I use r_gamma 1.2, I change it to 1.21, then back to 1.2). Why is the laptop doing this?

It happens too with ezquake.exe. Not sure if it happens with all games, i've only tried QW, Q3 and QL.

My Laptop is an Asus N53SV

It's happening during gameplay so it has anything to do with screensavers and stuff.

nVidia graphics are updated.

Hope you can drop some help.

500hz on Win 7 (32 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 19:55 CDT, 6 October 2011 - iMsg
Trying to get my laptop mouse on my new laptop working at 500hz. It's a pretty powerful laptop so it shouldnt have problems with it, the only problem is WIN 7 being gay. It's Win 7 64bits SP1.

I've read that thanks to Microsoft, Win 7 now needs a digital signed certificate by microsoft to install custom drivers, so programs like hidusbfb don't work. I've encountered this workaround:

http://www.ngohq.com/news/15043-how-to-increa...a-7-a.html

I finally managed to get it working at 500hz, but it would only work if the "Test mode" was enable. I can disable the watermark which is really annoying so i should be ok, but im kinda worried because I use this laptop for class and studying stuff so im connected in huge networks with lots of people, so my question is:

Does running in "Test mode" with that program present any sort of security problems, or just any kind of problem in the long run? I am safe leaving it in Test mode activated all the time? And

Is there any other way to get the damn mouse easily running at 500hz like in Win XP without needing to do dodgy shit?

K, finally bought the Asus n53s.

Tried Q3 with edawn, everything maxed out. With "high performance mode" (CPU at 100%) i had pretty stable 125fps.

About to try QL now, will report back (expect a worse performance given how shitty QL can be randomly in some computers even if they are far capable of full fps.. i hope it works at 125fps here)

Btw, Is there anything I need to know regarding Win 7 64 bits?
I have questions about:

An equivalent of the .reg file to get rid of the default mouse acceleration in Win XP is needed for Win 7?

Is there any problem with overclocking your laptop's USB to 500hz? I had no problem with the desktop one, and this computer is even more powerful. Will it fuck up my small notebook asus mouse that came with the laptop?

Is there any advantages in pluggin your mouse into the USB 3.0 port?

Anyone got the Razer Armadillo 2? (25 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 14:39 CST, 15 November 2010 - iMsg
Got one recently since I had the opportunity to get it real cheap, but this is the second time I RMA it and it comes with the same problem: Apparently the people who mount em (chinese, how not) forgot to put the non-slip material at the base. This:

http://drh.img.digitalriver.com/DRHM/Storefro...rma2-3.jpg

Instead, there is a hole in the middle of the base, and it's just black like the rest of the object.

Anyone can make some pictures of his Razer Armadillo 2 (specially the base) so I can show em to the idiots that sent me a fucked up one two times in a row?

PS: Also, did it come with no instructions at all for you aswell? Not as such a simple thing needs many explainations, but it just feels empty. Not even advertising of Razer mouses like they always do?

PS2: Are you having problems adjusting your cable on there? Im using the WMO and the cable seems too be too tight on there. It didn't fit easy, I had to push the cable with my nails to make it fit. The fuckers probably designed it for Razer mouse that I imagine have thiner cables. Anyway having the cable a bit tight on there is not a problem.

Weird.

QW newb (72 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 11:34 CST, 21 November 2009 - iMsg
Ok, so I just want to play some QW again. Initially only vs bots, just to kill some time when im bored.

I guess I have to download nquake which inludes all the latest shit, with decent bots too.

The problem is the cfg, I have no idea and I just don't have the time anymore to go around checking for cvars, so I just want to know what are the bindings for weapons and such. For some reason I don't mind as much as with Q3 about the graphics on there, I can play with default graphics. Also, that trick about pressing a key, changes to a particular weapon, shots that weapon, then goes back to the previous weapon you were using. Does everyone in QW uses that script? What are the best weapons to bind a key for that?

And anything else I should consider.

cheers

"Demo file was truncated" (14 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 13:15 CST, 15 November 2009 - iMsg
Im trying to open this demo file, its a Q3 CPMA demo. It tries to load, but then it goes to console and says. "Demo file was truncated".

Sounds like "corrupted file" or shit along the lines. Anyway, any precise input on what is this, and how to fix it.

Thanks

Brightskins TOO bright? (52 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 17:24 CDT, 4 September 2009 - iMsg
Two days ago or something brightskins (I use green Keel) started to appear way too bright. Well, similar to CPMA/OSP green bright, but right when I got used to the green not-as-bright skin they apparently add this terrible blinding green thing.

How do I revert back to the not-as-bright green colour?

pd: Something weird: I just played a game on a server and the skin was as green as it was before, when I was over after a while I played another game and the really bright skin was there again. wtf

Whats the best pad to buy (for a PC) to play SF4? Playing with the keyboard I think is what makes it really fucking boring.

Stutterings (30 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 17:28 CDT, 26 July 2009 - iMsg
Im having some retarded fps drops causing stuttering. It seems it always happens after pressing F3 to start the match for the first time. After some seconds it goes away and I can play normally until I join another server.

Im asuming this is Punkbuster being useless and ruining the game again?

IME 3.0 (53 comments)
Posted by nemecel @ 10:02 CDT, 3 July 2009 - iMsg
Im searching the mouse uNkind used in WCG 02. If I remember well that was the IME 3.0 (the black one with side buttons). Im interested in trying that shape (I have the 1.1a, afaik they have same optics and im confortable with it once upped to 500hz). Would also like to know if there has been any remake/fixed release (such as the a version of 1.1) since 2002. Post any experiences with this mouse if you have it.

Thanks.
