News Comments > OnLive Latency Evaluation
11. Re: OnLive Latency Evaluation Jul 8, 2010, 01:08 MxxCon
 
I was in the beta test of OnLive and i can say input delay wasn't an issue for me. It was very tolerable and after a while you stop noticing it and adjust to it. You won't be pixel perfect precision of sniping across the map with un-zoomed railgun, but for virtually everything else its fine.

However, what totally kills the service for me was bandwidth requirements. Games are fixed at 1280x720 resolution. I have 15down/2up internet connection. When you launch OnLive each time it does its quick bandwidth test and then uses however much bandwidth it thinks you have. Every time it used less than 7mbit of bandwidth games would become an unplayable blurry mess. Turning around or doing any action that would significantly change the screen would require 3-5seconds for the picture to recover details missing from the compression artifacts.
At ~7mbit or more it becomes less noticeable.
And as long as OnLive is running, it's using that bandwidth full throttle nonstop. If you play for 2 hours, it'll be using downloading at 7mbit nonstop. ISPs will really hate this service unless they can directly peer with them.

Is anyone else having problems preloading it? Mine doesn't seem to start.
same problem here Lonely
Wow, still? Has anyone even finished preloading?
i figured out what's happening (at least for me).
this preload doesn't seem to be working if you are using new ui test.
switching to the classic ui and now it's preloading for me

Since no one here is stepping up to fill the cynical douche niche on this particular thread, I'll happily chime in; IW would need to pay me to waste my bandwidth/hard drive space on this crap.
can i pay you so you don't post here?

News Comments > On Mouse DPI
19. Re: On Mouse DPI Mar 25, 2010, 08:26 MxxCon
 
I'd like to see some scientific data, rather than listen to predictable "our stuff is better because we say it is" PR bullshit
check out http://www.esreality.com/?a=longpost&id=1265679&page=1
it's an extremely detailed benchmark of ~10 different mice that definitely shows that dpi is important and that advertised dpi might not be accurate.
too bad this article is rather outdated now and talks about some mice that are no longer for sale.
still, very much worth reading.

yes, if firefox would release an offical .msi build, that would greatly help in enterprise deployment/penetration.
my ~15000 employee company would switch to firefox if they would provide an offical, supported firefox .msi build

I will give blood to blue's!
this is the only stable and reliable site that i have been reading for about 10 years now.
I love that they pretty much kept the same layout and didn't turn into yet another console site.
long live bluesnews!

(tho i do wish they would provide full rss feed, and not just headlines)
