It's more of a simulator than a MMO though. If you're fair to okay at say the stock market, you'll do just fine playing EVE.

Sounds like work to me ;p

I thought the game with plenty newbie friendly to begin with. I think you're looking for uber casual friendly though.

In our day, we played Unreal Tournament with bilinear filtering or even none at all for the extra FPS. You kids and your fancy full screen anti-aliasing, Fie! Fie! Hard cheese to you.

I think you (eRe4s3r) understand that unless the engine has a high tick rate that we can also match to sustained minFPS and monitor refresh rate it will not play as Unreal Tournament no matter what the title is.

85FPS/85Hz is arguably optimum, any higher and you might need to put your pinkie back on the teacup or the horses might get excited.



Well as da LAN insta-gib master I actually do know what you mean ;p To me the delay on 60hz LCD is clearly noticeable and the tick-rates in recent games, which basically add a whopping 200ms on top of your ping in worst case just suck. And yes, I know 120hz doesn't bring me any advantages nowadays.... which is why I only have it because it's better for the eyes.

But why settle for inferior technology.. I wait for low persistence OLED ^^

But yeah, the low tickrate in modern shooters is one of the biggest scams ever to hit MP gaming. Todays shooters are not really comparable unless they have a tickrate above 50

And BF4
It's running 30 simulation steps per second, but each client connection has a send rate of 10 Hz

50hz send-rate is the absolute minimum for good experience. And you technically have to at least match the default frame-rate and refresh rates (60hz)

Funny they are redoing the mineral processing side but still cannot fix the most boring aspect of the game, mining. I decided to do some mining last night and could not find a near by asteroid field that had any ore, they were all mined out. Absolutely absurd!

Mining is sadly thoroughly broken and no effort by CCP is upcoming to fix it. Their priorities, as usual, only lie with the old vets in 0.0

The "old vets" would disagree, seeing as most new features and changes are geared toward dumbing down the game and overall making it easier on new players. See "Brave newbies" success lately.

Nothing CCP will ever do will make this game newbie friendly.... unless they make it an SP game or allow private servers.

When you connect a pledge to a reward, it is in fact legally binding. Only default pledges "You get the finished product, if and when it finishes" are not legally binding assuming the wording is in such a way that it's clear. Until a court says otherwise this is literally why you should make sure how the wording of a reward tier is specifically. If it promises you something that is connected to the KS producing an actual product, you are out of luck. But if it is a "gift" of something the KS project actually has in it'S possession they are legally required to deliver.

And you actually have a legal requirement to inform your backers of the failing of a kickstarter. Any money left needs to be fairly redistributed, refunds are out of the question though. And if nothing is left, the backers need to be informed about that at least.

Going silent and changing company names makes it clear cut fraud.

Especially since printing cards is so fucking cheap. You could do it for a 10k budget, art and cards included. (not best cards ever, but delivery of 1000 card sets (50 to 60 unique cards) in printed boxes at least ,p)

I freelanced on several card games, I know the price ranges of these things. For a single card you are looking at about $50 to 100$ (art) for printing you are looking at less than 1000$ for 200 card sets. 100% unique. Metal boxing 2$ to 4$ per set (usually factories offer this in-print price already for some and ask extra for other variations), shipping 20$ (You get it in a big box, if it's too heavy, someone actually brings a normal industry palette to your door

For more than 200 sets you get rebate. And the prices go down accordingly. (Ie, 1000 sets + proper metal box would not be more than $5000 ) + ART cost. Not more than $5000 to $10000

So non delivery of these things with proper calculation done is nearly impossible. Either way, this is why Kickstarter needs accounting rules.

Pretty much same here Does nobody ever wonder why we don't have such charismatic speakers in the real world? Why nobody ever speaks the truth in politics anymore?


Its because Machiavellians, corruption, and "maintaining the status quo" always win the day. There is a historical precedent for it, over 5,000 years or more worth. That's the real world, usually people keep falling INTO or FOR it. A book, a video game, a show, a movie, are the stuff where people pretend of humans being better.

MLK appeared before the world and told of how our government lies and is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world, the cold hard truth. He got a bullet from the government for his efforts.

In that case the problem are the people that accept such Machiavellian ways in political environments...

What you describe is imo everything that's wrong with the western world. The status quo is not a vision for the future. Status quo inspires no one to strife for a better world.

And that's why nothing advances, why no politician in Germany has a vision for the future... makes me sad, no, angry.

What? For all his faults, Obama is a terrific speaker.

I'll give you that, but you ever heard a speech from Merkel or any of heir goonies in German Parliament? If you want sleeping pill replacements, you can listen to that garbage.

Merkel in particular can't hold a tone in a speech for longer than 3 seconds. And then of course, primary problem is nobody would ever tell you the truth about anything. Most speeches we Germans get to hear are absolute bullshit PR lies. Anything any politician ever said about Russia, USA and Ukraine for example... urgh.

You can't even imagine how good you have it to be lied to by someone who is at least charismatic about it!

And they wonder why nobody gives a damn about EU elections?

Can you imagine someone appearing on prime-time TV, giving this speech? And how many people would enter denial because it destroys their world view that's based on lies and misconceptions?

No idea whether the game will be worth it, but at least they have a good writer

What a sad state of affairs when game trailers have more political vision than politicians.

Reopening an accidentally closed tab seems much harder.

Right click on any tab "Open closed tab" (paraphrased, my firefox is obviously not in english ,p)


How else did you do that before the update?

History would give you a list of the last 5 closed tab. Every browser lets you right click on a tab for the most recent, but FF was the only one I remember giving you a list of more than just one.


Yeah, as I said, press on "Menu" then "History" and you see ALL (15!) recently open tabs to re-open in a slide to the side (heh). Also windows (new firefox instances) you closed can be re-opened there as well. You can also re-open all tabs at once.

So that at least, they did not break.

"Undo Closed Tab".

Neat, I've never noticed that before, always went to the recently viewed list, which is a bit more of a pain to get to than it used to be, but that's not much of a problem with that right-click shortcut. Thanks!

Ah yeah, the browse history ... if you press on menu and on history you get a nice run-down of all recently opened sites... and you can choose to restore browsed windows OR tabs there, so just fyi That is actually one of the neater things of that new menu thing.

Right click on tab gives more tab related features... not everything with Firefox is badly designed, only some things ,p

As a hardcore browser user I find the new update to be... totally harmless...

But 1 thing...

Why the heck is right click menu and menu-menu not the same style. What retard coded THAT? Now I can have the Windows 8 experience in Firefox, always nice (not)

In fact, why doesn't right click menu have icons... only addons have items... firefox functions don't.. the heck?

Yeah, as far as the original offended customer? A refund was totally the con's call - refund, don't refund her - whatever. As soon the guy in charge took the private customer request for public bullying on his facebook site though... Wow, way to go dude.

And it looks like the his solution now is to just delete all posts from anyone upset over what happened - just whitewashing it and hoping it will go away.

Which is kinda sad because it sure is true that the CON's and cosplayers in general if not a strong enforcement of rules is in place get pushed into sexism clichés.

And it's people like that rep that worsen the situation and atmosphere with reactions like that to boot. I'd love CONS with 1:1 male female visitor ratios (which would also lead to 1:1 cosplay ratio).... but asking for a refund is not the way to go, and public shaming the girl in question isn't either. Fact is, you don't like a con because it's sexist... don't buy a ticket for it. Instead go to the con that isn't. Or *gasp* make your own CON... but then, there are a lot of manga-con's

Either way... sexism sucks

This site has a much more lengthy recap:
Cheery City ComicCon Debacle

At this point these stories are just fluffy tales of how not to use facebook + how to be a total dick. I am sort of glad idiots like that dude get called on it though.

That said, refund request for not liking the cosplayers? Good luck with that. Refunds don't care if you are offended ;p

Mostly meant terrain deformation.. but you are right, aside the dynamic terrain deformation most of the stuff is pre-canned animations and scripts and triggers (And it has to be, since it has to sync in MP)

I don't think there's any native deformation in UE4, it's funny that in BF4 Dice had to tone it back and many places you can't deform the terrain at all. There was that game that Lucasgames made where you could raise and lower the terrain like you were in the editor making mountains and valleys, the effect looked just like that too. Pushing and pulling verts, not really worth much in the long run.

Makes a huge gameplay difference on some maps in BF4 Golmund comes to mind, the 1 map where they nearly fully unlocked it. You can make holes so deep tanks can fall in them and not get out.
