QC should replace q3l physics with q4s (10 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 23:56 CDT, 24 August 2016 - iMsg
What are your thoughts about having a q4 champion instead of a q3 champion? I like it because I think I'd be much easier to balance between the pql vs q4 champions. There'd be no need to alter healty /armor levels and it'd be a more level playing field. Its probably best that a fast paced game like quake has some consistency.

This conversation will be moot if syncerror makes a q4 champion, but I kinda have my doubts he will :(

Btw, you could call the q4 champion toxic and put him on roller skates. Easiest design ever

What movement system for QC duel? (53 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 19:55 CDT, 13 August 2016 - iMsg
Duel is definitely getting a classic mode, so what movement system do you want to see for the next 8 years?


These are the three likeliest candidates, so pick from them and Put them in order of want.

I want

1) q4
2) vql
3) pql

8 more years of stiff/ slow vql movement would be sad, but I could live with it. Im going with Q4 movement cause its a good a compromise between pql and vql. Bad positioning gets severely punished, but its still flashy and appealing to the eye. Casuals love watching flashy movement, BTW.

Lets team up and make an arena FPS, ESR (69 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 00:03 CST, 13 January 2016 - iMsg
looks like sync error has stopped caring about qwake and reflex doesn't look interesting anymore. how bout we all work together and make the next great shooter?

idtech 4?
weapon skins?

anyone down to get this started?
i will help with funding and map making IF the mechanics are on point(q4 mechanics with a few twists sounds good to me)

yay - nay?

shame qwake will be dead soon without a worthy successor.
WE deserve our SFIII :< (a game so good that ppl will be running yearly, large scale tournaments 20-30 years after it's last update)

inb4 ql is bestquake and we should keep playing it [just stahp]

if we do this, we need to nominate a leader who has connections, who will think outside of the box, and has a lot of determination.
memento-mori would be the first person i'd consider.

schizm as our spokesperson would also be wise(i kid ;)

anyways, if you guys are interested in doing this/helping. pm me and well get on irc to talk.

Did idsoftware move on from q4 too soon? (20 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 19:12 CST, 11 January 2016 - iMsg
should they have spent another year fixing q4 instead of working on quake live? was going with ql over q4 the right decision?

Instant switch vs delayed switch (90 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 13:23 CDT, 26 September 2014 - iMsg
Aircontrol had a big debate, so let's do one for switch time

why, why does everyone here automatically think delayed is better and more tactical?

"you get punished for not switching in time, duh"
same thing happens with instant switch, duh

"it's a hard skill to be perfect at"
how come old pros had it down pat and rarely made mistakes.
they had 1/10th the playtime of modern pros and they had no issues with it. usually, when pros make a mistake nowadays it's because theyre strafe jumping around, stumble onto the other player, and end up being late with their switch.
you rarely ever see pros make mistakes when they're melee fighting

delayed switch isnt some deep skill like fanboys want you to believe and using instant switch wouldn't ruin anything.

instant switch automatically makes tdm better because it puts a bigger price on power weapons(that's a fact, jack).

instaswitch also opens the game up to more possibilities. Imagine what cypher would be capable of if he played cpma instead of ql

Casual Game modes for reflex (70 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 23:15 CDT, 17 September 2014 - iMsg
Well, it looks like adding your game to steam isn't a guarantee that a large mass of noobs will come(ql), so reflex is going to have to be very proactive if it wants to attract fresh meat.

If you have any original ideas for casual game modes, post them here
And post which existing casual modes/mods you want to see added to reflex

here's my list so far
1) basketball game mode(always wanted to play one in a "quake" game)
2 ) capturestrike with some changes to make it more skillful and less campy
3) action quake 2 mode(never played it, but it looks like it could be a lot of fun in reflex)
4) lithium quake 2 mode(had a blast with this. i think noobs from today would still enjoy it)

photos released
this is going to be huge news soon
nsa agent leaking this would be a crazy story

my guess on how it happened is that they all used compromised wifi somewhere. be safe and use a vpn or ssh, faggots

this is the full list from the hacker.

Gears of War Tournament on Twitch (17 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 14:45 CDT, 30 August 2014 - iMsg

gears is like a modernized quake for consoles. theres a movement system and lots of glitches to learn. there's even timing involved.
if you're hardcore at quake than gears should be up your alley.

this is my first gears tournament, so i have no clue if it will be any fun.

Reflex needs to look at QW for.. (159 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 17:44 CDT, 26 August 2014 - iMsg
inspiration, not quakelive, if it wants to be a success.*

some things that reflex could copy

quakeworld's faster run speed[400ups with strafing]: this will make rockets and lg harder to land and you will see less jumping, which will make the game less random.

backpacks for tdm would be an improvement over the weapon trading-ffa style tdm from q2, cpm, and ql.

grapplehook ctf? newbies love their devices :)

there are more features that the team could copy from qw, but i'll just leave that for the devteam to find themselves.

and what's up with the hate for cpm 1v1? it's a beautiful game, especially when played on a good map

this is what cpm look likes when played on a good map(cpm15 is the best available in cpm).
not too shabby
better than any of the blowout games from the quakecon finals :)

*quakelive died after just 2 years
everyone wants to blame id software for killing the game, but i believe the gameplay(especially the team gameplay) is why it ultimately failed after 2 years. same thing happened to quake 3

reflex needs to focus on map making, improving the game for hardcore players, and coming up with NEW fun modes for casual players(THE NEXT instagib-type game) if it wants to have a long life as KING.

Quake song from 2001 - russian techno (3 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 15:25 CDT, 9 August 2014 - iMsg

found this song from a streaming site the other day.
pretty sure it's been compressed again, so i'll be uploading the original files once my friend gives me his cdr

a little background:
two songs were uploaded in 2001 to by a dj named alexey a(iirc)
both songs were banging, but this was the better of the two.
this song and let the bodies hit the floor were my two faves from back in the day


how me and my lanmates looked like when we used to jam this song

[+] if you have both songs and upload them on this thread

any chance the chinese would play (19 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 18:59 CDT, 29 July 2014 - iMsg
reflex if you guys were to pander to them?
we already know they don't care about fps, but perhaps that would change if you built something more appealing for them.

you could put some chinese skins, a chinese sword weapon, chinese themed maps.
maybe even use Chinese music for the soundtrack

so, do you guys think this would have any effect on picking up players from the LARGEST PC gaming country? yes - no

can anyone from china answer this question?
