#562443 Bacon?!?

I saw bacon and thought you had the server swear filter set to change all the bad words to "Bacon" like we did in ye'olde UT2K4 days...

#561091 Discord, future, etc.

Posted by Flitterkill on 14 April 2016 - 06:20 PM

It doesn't exactly match anything around here but you probably can't miss the Discord widget on the side.


Discord = pretty much the future of game comms. Text and voice.


I think we're gonna move all in and I (we) have plans for some wack bot integrations. Pushing out round stats, special event flares, etc. all into the text channels. Honestly, too much to even iterate thru right now.


If you know what Slack is Discord is that - plus voice, in-game overlays, Twitch integration, Battlenet soon, and moar. 


So you folks might want to get on-board now. Eventually we'll close down the mumbles. 


Observant types might have heard me drone on over the past year or so about upgrading this forum community and so on. Our tiny little server logo you'll see when you hook up on our Discord server will give you a glimpse of the re-branding.


If you have problems joining our server just yell at the usual suspects. Most/all of the board members are hooked up. And yes, since this is a totally wide open combined text chat and voice chat system we'll be needing to get rolling on mod permissions, hosts, and so on. We can make any channel for text/voice that is needed. Just a single for text right now though; more later.


Web page app plus native for Win 10/8/7, Mac, and you can keep the fun rolling along on your Android phone too.


There is a single bot active (might be naughty at times) which I just threw on to get the party started. Try not to abuse it (or abuse it against GC conduct standards...)

#560912 For those who are Too Good for L4D2

Posted by Flitterkill on 03 April 2016 - 10:42 AM

Glad to see the internet is still excellent for calm rational discussion. Whew. Was worried for a bit that I should have locked this last night.  :spinface:


Calliing a timeout. We'll be open for more business in this thread later...

#560866 For those who are Too Good for L4D2

Posted by Flitterkill on 03 April 2016 - 12:34 AM

Cogent and literate writing. I like.


Cancer and moar have had me distracted from these parts for a while - let me poke the beehive and see if we can't get some things better resolved and or fixed. Prob not tonight as I has a tired. Also I need to read the backstory.


But I'm down for watchin' some Twitch.


Irrelevant Thought: 2007 and I'm streaming speed runs from archive.org on my big screen projector of long donkey FPS Adventure games like Indiana Jones, etc because I just wanted to unwind after a long week and would rather just watch someone play than do it myself. Thought it be nice if we could get people to do this stuff but include the cut scenes so it'd be like a movie. Also thought it would be nice to have a better repository of this stuff.


And then I never thought of it again until someone made Twitch and became millionaires by making YouTube for gamers.


@eg: Not a bad thought. Who would we ask?


Leaving thread open for now, if it gets closed no worries, it'll re-open.

#560514 Paid and Confirmed List for FF2016

Posted by Flitterkill on 15 March 2016 - 05:52 PM

Someone probably named Flitterkill should send an email announcing this thing to everyone or something...

#560428 Please help

Posted by Flitterkill on 09 March 2016 - 10:21 PM

This seems to be a really odd situation so I just went ahead and refunded. 

#559536 Razer Half-Off Sale until 9pm Pacific Friday

Posted by Flitterkill on 15 January 2016 - 02:07 PM

Go to Razer, signup as an insider, then go generate your code.


Works in the outlet store as well.


Grabbed refurbed bluetooth headset and 7.1 gaming headset for $97 shipped.






Would have been different if I had paid attention to this happening and jumped in at 9pm Thursday. Still pleased.


Hit $50 or more for free shipping (you'll want to as shipping is at least $10)

#559252 Help me theoretically choose between two laptops...

Posted by Flitterkill on 07 January 2016 - 02:20 PM

Well, I think I might have swung myself over to the HP Omen and will start to turn ye'olde 2007 build over to headless unit.


Had about two months away from the desktop system to do things and stuff. With me now having D3 Reaper of Souls (and needing to clean the office) I installed and ran a round or two on it. I forgot how utterly nice the old 24" Dell 1900x1200 panels circa 2005 are. Ten years old now and still gorgeous. Matte! Matte I say! Your eyes just fall into them vs. the glossies. I know the backlighting bulbs will one day (sooner than later) fail out but for now - yeah, this will work - again.


Now the question is will I find an 860m version cheap enough to sway me away from dropping more dime for a 960m version. Sole drawback is they both carry only 2gig of ram on the cards but given the premium nature of these guys I can probably flip it a year and half down the line and still keep a good amount of equity out of the deal.

#559226 Help me theoretically choose between two laptops...

Posted by Flitterkill on 05 January 2016 - 02:12 PM

Surprising, especially in a predominantly PC gaming community. Who'd a thunk it :)


And no, it doesn't, those two just appeared to be in the sweet spot sub-1000 (the more sub the better). For example, there is an HP 17" Envy recent release (6 months to a year) but it carries only the 940m or less (920m Is that even a thing - forget...)

#558640 Was Martin Jones dropped on purpose?

Posted by Flitterkill on 23 November 2015 - 06:29 PM

I think there has to be a mulligan given here and LeoA can get him back.


I mean, what am I missing here? Why would you drop him?


Also I'm playing Leslie this week while we are in WI for TurkeyDay. Should be entertaining banter...

Ring is totally on his own hand. :p

#557053 Input requested

Posted by Flitterkill on 03 September 2015 - 04:26 PM

So, there's gonna be some changes around here in a month or so. Forums moving from the circa late-2000's era up into the now times with content streams and responsive things and all that.


One thing I've always wanted to get around to doing was Rig Fight! We all have computers, some better than others. Occasionally someone will drop a build thread as they create their latest monster gaming machine.  But alas, we have no community record of who's gaming with what, how fast (slow) it is, and so on.


I could have done this a year or two ago but now, it's kinda easy peasy to pull off. So, as part of the community refresh inbound I figure this can come along for the ride. Hell, can even give out prizes on a yearly basis and so on. You get the idea.


So, what would you want for community DB of this nature? Out of the gate I got this:


Type (Desktop/Laptop/Other)

Operating System

CPU Make

CPU Model

CPU Stock Speed

CPU Operating Speed (Current speed for overclockers)

Memory Size (GBs)

Primary Storage (HD/SSD/Memory)

Primary HD/SSD Make

Primary HD/SSD Size

Standard text box for you to blither about in about how great your PC is.

Image upload pile for you to dump all the glorious pictures of your special snowflake.


After that, well, sky's the limit. I imagine we'll want fields PCMark 7 and 8, 3D Marks of various flavors.


Monitor Make/Model

Standard screen res.


Gets a bit tricky with dual card people but otherwise video card make and model, video card memory (total?), shader count?


Case make. Uhh...


Cost too. Will be interesting to see how people do value wise. Also to laugh years later after spending $xxxx only to see some $30 part from China two years later equal it in performance :)


Naturally all this is browsable, sortable, etc.


Have at it!


#555467 Server Wipe

Posted by Flitterkill on 18 June 2015 - 06:49 PM

The server is running Spigot now. Spigot is just a fancy Craftbukkit with more something something....


The world that existed before I brought the server down a day or two ago is still there, nothing has been wiped. Log in, have fun. You guys can continue the debate about wiping the world or not.


Other than that I ran a bunch of Centos updates (running 6 64 bit if you are curious) and bumped the Java on the server from something like 1.8.0_4 to 1.8.0_45 or whatever. Java had not been updated sine July of last year. Gotta be better now.

#553460 Are you looking for an additional L4D2 server?

Posted by Flitterkill on 06 April 2015 - 05:19 PM

Or to put it a more detailed way, if we wanted to make server #3 we could do it without giving it a thought - we've got the server space, funds, etc. Fantastic offer; shame it wasn't a different game type.

#551586 UT 2015

Posted by Flitterkill on 21 February 2015 - 09:59 PM

Of course. :)
