I'm still waiting for outrage about all the other Silicon Valley companies which are backing the most thoroughly corrupt, inept, and criminal presidential candidate in American history.

What *I* am outraged about, is that Hillary Clinton should be in jail, according to multiple FBI sources, the Wikileaks evidence is absolutely damning in every single respect, and I just wonder when the Democrat Party brainwashing will actually wear off.

Apparently, never.

I am also tremendously outraged about how nobody dares compare Donald Trump's terrible terrible offenses of "being rude, greedy and racist and groping women", to the disasters Hillary wrecked on the world scale, lives lost, cover-ups, destroying evidence, giving false testimony, creating a future nuclear wasteland in proximity of Iran (as admitted by her own inner circle)... how come nobody is outraged that she has corrupted the FBI? That she is above the law?

Oh no... Trump groped someone back in 1923. He's misogynist!

Meanwhile, Hillary has driven dozens of Secret Service agents off their job by being intolerable, and harassed Bill's "girls" into silence.

Hillary is importing thousands of unvetted Syrians, a good deal of whom are violent homophobes and women-haters. Not a peep about that, though.

Hillary's State Department under Obama played a role in perpetuating his policies which directly resulted in the Orlando gay club shooting. Why? Because Obama castrated the FBI training manuals, and that Muslim Extremist, who was being closely tracked, stopped getting tracked, because he no longer met the new uber-PC requirements.

By the way, the Boston marathon bombers were also being tracked by the FBI until the training manuals were changed.

San Bernandino shooters? Were not reported by neighbors because of their fear of not being politically correct. The PC stench from the highest ranks of our government, infected the body politic, and killed all those people.

"Islamic terrorism" is not a concept in this government, and that's the kind of government that Mrs. Clinton will gladly perpetuate, guided by her close friend Huma Abedin.

Jesus Christ, the stupidity of this country is overwhelming.

Hillary Clinton is a warmongering imbecile who called Putin "Hitler", and is now proposing a no-fly zone above Syria, which will likely result in armed conflict with Russian planes. This is how actual wars start.

She is perpetuating "Nobel Peace Prize Winner" Obama's demolition of friendly relations with the world's second largest nuclear superpower. This is after bragging about the Iran "deal", which easily gives them a nuclear bomb.

You literally have the choice between the only hope America has, and the closest we have got to a totalitarian, power-hungry, 100% corrupt TYRANT.

Make no mistake about it. Trump respects the 1st Amendment, and not just when it comes to "conservatives". He understands that the purpose of the 1st Amendment is not to protect nice speech, but to protect offensive speech.

Hillary has shown in many ways that she hates the 1st Amendment. Under her administration, she will appoint Supreme Court judges which will forever change this country into a banana republic. She wanted Fairness Doctrine, and she wants Obama's proposed media control, which is one of the scariest things I've ever heard from a supposed leader of a supposed free country.

The freedoms you take for granted here, will soon be GONE, and you won't find them anywhere else in the world. First she will come for conservatives, and then there will be nobody to stand with you.

I didn't come from the Soviet Union to experience the Soviet-style state media brainwashing completely eat away the brains of half of America. It is absolutely devastating to witness history come full-circle thanks to a completely brainwashed populace, in the same way as it was in Soviet academia.

This is truly going to be a historic election, which will show whether America has breached the critical threshold of clueless, incubated Eloi, who will be forever destined to be eaten by Morlocs.

Yes, vote Hillary and not Trump. Sure, Trump understands negotiation about 10x better, sure he is actually patriotic and far less corrupt, sure he can identify our enemies, secure our borders, stop China from robbing us blind, and PREVENT WAR WITH RUSSIA - but hey, guys, he has funny hair and he's crude. Conan O'Brien told me so guys!

Fuck you, half of America. You know who you are.

When this type of shit starts to happen for no explicable reason, it's time to leave the forum. There are better gaming forums out there. If Blue doesn't want the activity, then he won't get it. Simple.

I still can't believe we let a country as oppressive as China to scam us this much. And their pollution is off the fucking scale, too.

There's a documentary they made in China, which was then banned... in China... called "Under The Dome". They are probably the biggest force on the planet that's ruining the planet. And we are supporting their careless, exploitative-of-workers, ultra-pollutive, industrial expansion.

It's time to enforce some fucking standards, bring our jobs back, and stop treating China like the manufacturing center of the world.

They already broke a series of popular external 3TB USB drives with Windows 8 and up and never fixed it, apparently.

But since Intel/AMD and Microsoft are now forcing obsolescence on anything below Win10, via hardware and refusal to provide drivers, the only recourse is to use the LTSB version of Win10, neuter it as much as possible, and update it manually and very carefully.

Torchlight 2 had a lot going right with it on paper, in terms of bringing old Diablo gameplay depth back, but when you played it, it felt like a series of suffocative paths, bizarre loading screens where there shouldn't have been any, and retarded cartoon weapons with arbitrary stats.

News Comments > No Man's Sky Patch Update
15. Re: No Man's Sky Patch Update Oct 13, 2016, 03:15 shiho
I have no pity for most people who pre-ordered or bought this game.

It was crystal-clear from its inception that it's going to be another Spore. There was no "what if". It was just going to be crappy procedural models inside a bland gameplay loop. The more time passed, the clearer that became, to the point where even a dog should've gotten it already. The vague pie-in-the-sky promises, the fuzzy-wuzzy videos with no real gameplay shown...

But I guess there's a sucker born every minute. I feel no pity for any seasoned gamer who bought it, period. The only people I pity, are the clueless teenagers or their moms ordering this game for them. Those are the innocent casualties of Sean Murray's scumbaggery.

That's why we must only stick to corporate/enterprise versions of Windows. Corporations can hurt Microsoft, after it hurts their profits with their dysfunctional OS, and so it treads lightly in regard to reckless behavior with them.

NetHead wrote on Oct 12, 2016, 11:54:
That's how many have done it for a long time. I remember there used to be a site which would help one get only the updates you want, until Microsoft killed it. These days there's another WSUS offline option.

Rolling up all the patches can mean problems, splitting them up into security and others could mean more problems. Though it is good to at least split them up into security / other.

Then again Microsoft likes sneaking in other "things" under the guise of security updates, they also like adding patches to flawed security updates in other non-security updates (fun right, only gets better when they do it with this).

Can you imagine they continue that behaviour with this, adding a patch for a security update but that patch is only available in the non-security update, except now to get that one security patch you have to install the entire collection of non-security updates because you can't get them individually.

Nevermind the countless bad and undesirable individual updates. No more avoiding that one/few that causes "this" or "that" system to go into infinite boot loops or a plethora of other problems. With these rollups there apparently also won't be an option to remove just one of the updates included, would have to remove the whole pack..

From what I see on Steam forums, this is total and utter shit. Lazy port with shitty voiceovers, missing Atomic Edition content...

Better off grabbing Duke3D Atomic data files and using eduke32.

Underrail is made by a guy who really liked Fallout, but decided to focus on the combat and neglect the story/world aliveness elements.

Unfortunately it's very hard to fully replicate the full scope of a Fallout1/2-style game without having a team of 20 people and a huge budget.

Underrail plays more like an isometric dungeon crawler with TB combat.

Basically, one needs to kill auto-updating. And then there should be someone on the Internet who makes a batch file for uninstalling shitty/spyware updates.

So you install a "cumulative" patch, and then run this batch file to make sure you are "clean".

Please, no. It will get consolized and ruined.

It was pretty arcadish to begin with.

It was based on Mechwarrior 2 simulation engine, which was created by a man who wrote such engines for the flight sims used by the military.

It was unrealistic, sure, but that doesn't make a game arcadish.

News Comments > Tribes Ascend Parting Gifts Patch
10. Re: Tribes Ascend Parting Gifts Patch Sep 29, 2016, 19:07 shiho
I've been playing this game since beta, before finally giving up a few months ago.

It was doing so many things right at the start. And then it stalled. And failed us - again and again.

One of their bigger blunders, which nobody seems to remember is that after release, they made the game unplayable on 32-bit systems. This is back when 32-bit OSes were still a huge chunk of the playerbase. Yes, this game is what, 4+ years old now?

So for about 6 months of constant crashing, 32-bit OS users were basically driven off. This happened because they kept pushing new skins and weapons into the game with zero regard for optimization.

Then, there was their horrible netcode, which is far worse than original Tribes' netcode. It was never fixed. The user community created TAMods, which is a memory inject that allows for many customizations never present in the game, AND fixes a glaring netcode-related flaw with displaying of bullet positions in the game. Indirectly, of course.

For years, there existed hacks which let you reveal other people's hitboxes. Some hackers got into the servers, and managed to teleport other players into the sky.

Choyseung (sp?) was the pre-TAMods hacker who implemented this fix, known as "magic chain", as well as a fix to the fact that Nova Colt firing rate was PING-DEPENDENT.

Then, there are their horrible non-dedicated servers. One day you have 23 ping and it feels like 23 ping, another day it says 23 and feels like 80.

There is no pre-tick lag compensation in the netcode. It is very simplistic, not robust at all in its error correction and movement interpolation, and caves to the slightest imperfections in connections.

Quake Wars had a solid netcode. This game is the complete opposite.

The game was lacking in completeness as a Tribes game from the start (no real indoor environments, the indoor/gen defense play became irrelevant, forcefields and mines almost useless). Then after a long long time of doing nothing, in the end of 2015 they released a patch which fixed some of the exploits, improved some of the balance (INFs stopped being gods, for instance), and destroyed what fun remained in the base game, by stripping it further of features.

It neutered mines and forcefields and turrets even further. Vehicles became free, because they removed the point accumulation system which worked just fine. People who are good at turtling-ADADing in the middle of the field became super annoying because they HiRez removed artillery strikes as well.

Since then they've changed some minor things in this patch. This last patch balances out the autos a bit better, so people can't have a hitscan gun and a chaingun at the same time.


The game remains neutered however. That's because that big end-of-2015 patch was created based on feedback of hardcore competitive duelers or whatever, who stripped the game down to being Call of Duty with mortars and jetpacks.
