Asking non-rhetorically, how much damage could you do? I assume the car doesn't start shooting rockets or activate jump capability. Is it a matter of cars suddenly not working in the middle of the highway? What kind of malfunctions can you incur that wouldn't have happened with a non-computerized car?

Acceleration and braking would be the main two I think. Both are somewhat controlled digitally now, rather than using actual mechanical linkages.

Well, in a sense. The acceleration is partially monitored and controlled for the fuel flow/fuel injection and the brakes for fail-safes and ABS, unless you have a 'fancy' new car with all those smantzy tablets and gizmos and whatchamacallits. (Seriously, Google, 'whatchamacallits' doesn't get flagged for a spelling error?! Did I miss something?! That's considered an actual word now?) I'm not sure what high tech stuff they got on the cars now but before 2003 (which is the year of my Focus...yeah, yeah, I know, at least it ain't a Prius! ) it was just basically that*... oh, and cruise control...

* - Given my extremely limited and non-mechanically-inclined intuition...

If you want in-depth stuff you can't get on the evening news (or more of the stuff that they gloss over) I suggest checking out VICE on Youtube. They're everywhere and while they had a brief time a year or so ago where they were doing stupid crap, they've gotten back to that eye-opening reporting from places like Ukraine and Africa. But also stuff like rental forfeiture in Arkansas, stuff you would never even think of. It's really good...I love John (and Jon, for that matter) and I hope this show goes for a long time. I'm not too crazy about Jon (Stewart)'s replacement. I don't know him. I'll give him a chance, but Jon is one-in-a-million. Gonna be hard to replace someone like him...

Rigs, why would you consider apologizing unless you didn't mean what you said? I meant every word I said to you and don't feel sorry about it at all.

If I have to explain to you why someone would feel bad for something they said to someone in anger...then everything I said about you not giving a damn about others feelings is right on the mark...

And I think the IGNORE function is broken. I still see Krovven's posts...ah, whatever.

Yeah, if you turn off v-sync, you'll get way better mouse response. But you might have to restart after turning it off for it to be effective. That's what happened to me. I messed with it for like five minutes and then restarted and it was a lot better. >Raw Input< helps too. Having it on >Windows< was like playing it at 2fps.

There's only a few things I'm going to say and then I'm done with this discussion. It's gone way further than I had intended. I figured once Blue posted, the argument would have died right there but to my surprise, Krovven kept pushing it. I really don't understand what your problem is, Krovven. Whether it's a need for attention, you feel like you're defending yourself from being wrongly persecuted, you're just the kind of individual that really doesn't give a damn about other's feelings, or you truly feel that you're superior to other people? I can't understand how you feel that it's justified to call someone stupid when they ask a question, no matter how simple or trivial. I've been through your post history. You're not a stupid person. But it's readily apparent to me that you have a serious lack of empathy. You even proved that again by posting here, in public, what someone had said to you in private. That's inexcusable. You give no respect yet you expect it from others.

As for Blue not treating you fairly, well, he can do that. He can do whatever he wants. It's his site. His prerogative. We're all here with his blessing. He could end all of this with a flick of a switch. Personally, I'm glad he puts up with us as much as he does. I know I wouldn't. Maybe he sees the same thing I do, your lack of compassion, respect and maturity. I don't know, I'm not him.

And for the record, I had every intention, even after everything that's been said, to apologize for calling you a douche when I came back in here today. (Really, I had said you were acting like a douche, not that you were one, but that's semantics) I was going to be the better man and 'man up'. (I really, really hate that term...bro! Rolleyes ) But when I saw that you had not only posted stuff from a private message but then turned around and ridiculed him for it?! Forget it. You don't deserve an apology. And I'll stand by that. You don't. That's over the line. You have no respect for anyone and you certainly don't deserve any and I can't see how Quinn can defend you. If everyone was 'ganging up' on you here, it's for good reason and that proved it!

I'm done with this. Don't bother responding, Krovven, because I won't hear it. You're on ignore for real now. Or do. At this point, I don't care. You pushed it from me wanting to work this whole thing out and maybe get you to see why I said what I did (and hesitating filtering you out completely), to now, where you don't deserve to waste any more of my time.

I haven't read the post yet but back when ME3 came out, I said that a Freespace2-style space-combat sim based on the final stand at Earth would kick so much ass and take so many names, it'd need it's own wiki! I mean, picture an engrossing, full-immersive Oculus-ready EliteDangerous/Star Citizen type sim with battles like that last one in ME3 and I would gladly hand over a year's salary!...ok, maybe not a year, I do have to eat and if I lose my house I'd need gas for my car/bed...but holy shit, KICKSTART that, pronto, yo!

Not to excuse anything that was said afterwards, but it is factual that you targeted Krovven first.

Actually, I kinda didn't. We quarreled a while ago and this was really an extension of that. I have no problem with his posts except for the snide remarks he makes at the end of them when someone does something or has an opinion he doesn't agree with. I mean, disagree, fine. But you don't have to put them down and make them feel stupid for even posting. He's done it a number of times and I felt it was time someone called him out on it. I don't go around doing that. Most respectable posters here don't do that. Trolls do that. Children that want attention do that.

Sepharo wrote on Apr 16, 2015, 18:11:
And then you weirdly said, "None of my posts about those topics involved you in any way." in response to "Except I wasn't even speaking to you" which was in response to you mentioning him.

I was referring to this first comment:

...not the second part. I know he wasn't initially talking to or about me, the reason I said something was his nasty remark to 'DangerDog':

Krovven wrote on Apr 13, 2015, 23:17:

So, yes, in this instance, I started it, but as I said it was really an extension of our previous argument and him being a total jerk for no reason lately...not to mention his disrespectful and immature responses to me...

Dude, go back to putting me on ignore. You are pathetic. Do I really need to quote the posts? I didn't reply to you and didn't even mention your name or talk about you. You replied to someone elses post and chose to insult me in that post that had nothing to do with you. I put you in your place and now you are STILL crying about it.

Yeah, ok, big guy. You keep telling yourself that...You quote and post whatever the hell you want if it makes you feel better. Maybe Blue won't stuff another sock in your mouth...

Except I wasn't even speaking to you in my reply but to someone that frequently posts stupid shit, similar to you.

I rest my case. None of my posts about those topics involved you in any way. Don't come back now and complain about it when you didn't have to get involved in those discussions to begin with!

Enjoy my IGNORE filter, Krovven, you've earned it. I'm done listening to you blame everyone else for your actions when you're called out.

So you report my post calling you names, but Blue leaves your post calling me a douche. Typical Blue, keep that double standard going.

Once again blaming others for your actions. And you talk about me manning up?

Let's have a look at that shall we? The post that you quoted and replied calling me a douche, had nothing to do with you. You want to sling shit? Man the fuck up. Just don't forget to take your meds first.

You're paranoid, Krovven, I didn't waste my time reporting you, Blue can tell you as much if you don't believe me. Maybe if you could have a respectful adult discussion, you wouldn't have to worry about having the online equivalent of a sock stuffed in your mouth...

I know quite a few people that still play NFS World on a consistent basis and they had no idea this was coming and they are not happy campers (uh, pun not intended). Not that EA ever gave World a chance to begin with, it was always second best to the latest 'AAA' NFS title they had out. I think when The Crew came out and pretty much bottomed out, they looked at World and said, 'that's it! You're done! No more of this shit!'...

The gaming industry feels almost like the job industry nowadays...no prospect for job security, no prospect for game support...geesh...

Anybody know how to adjust? *facepalm*

looked at the settings file, no mention of FOV. I guess it'll require someone to mod it. Looks like it maxes out at 80, your weapon doesn't scale either.

I also find the camera options for the car rather weak, no bumper cam view They over did the camera bob when you use "hood" view and it's not centered.


There is an FoV slider in the options. But I guess it's easier to be stupid or jump to conclusions than look for yourself.

Doubling down on douchebaggery, stay classy...

If you read the comments and don't have CJ on ignore already, I don't know what to tell you.

I actually thought he was, to be honest. When he showed up in the GTA5 thread, I realized he somehow...wasn't. Won't make that mistake a second time...still, it's interesting that I can get that kind of rise out of him by asking a simple question. I'm curious as to what he'd do if I actually humored him. Then again, I'm not one to go knocking over troll hills, so I guess I'll have to keep wondering...

On the filter he goes...

Like Diablo 3, no one cares.

More to the point, most AMD users don't have many issues with the drivers they have now so updating is a somewhat moot point...

I'll assume since everyone pretty much shut up, that they're either playing or pounding the shit out of their desks and computer cases...or writing eloquent 'fuck you' posts on GTA5's STEAM forums. In any case, I jumped over on IRC and the natives are restless. Whooo boy are they! Conspiracy theories are a-flyin', crack groups are blaming everything under the sun for the delay and every one is chomping at the bit. Just be glad you went legit, cause it ain't pretty...
