News Comments > Underrail: Expedition Announced
6. Re: Underrail: Expedition Announced Oct 11, 2016, 17:33 shiho
 
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".

Now there's a game that needs to be remade.

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.

Yay.

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.

Watching the videos of the D44M soundtrack guy was depressing. He always starts off with a fair imitation of the original track. He builds on to it a little bit, and I think, "so far pretty great!"... and then he completely destroys it and makes it sound like rubbing sandpaper on your ears.

Doom 2016 "soundtrack" is basically white noise, stripped of the melodic content.

THIS is what a modern take on Doom soundtrack is supposed to sound like:

No, I saw it. You changed your mind after reading it, and decided to interpret it in a way that makes you feel superior.

You still started to get offended at the article based on the headline, which is clearly satirical. Great that you got it after reading it, but that you didn't get it from the headline...

Possibly the cutest attempt at Hannibal Lectoring I've seen in the past year. Ah, to be young again.

There is a weird tendency amongst some to call any article written to be goofy and fun "clickbait." I'm not surprised you're amongst those people.

There's a weird tendency among some to not read a post beyond the first 9 words. But I won't make any assumptions about you and will assume it was an accident.

One of the most frightening things I've seen, is a grown man on a bicycle, riding right next to traffic in Downtown, with some kind of "seat" on the back with two toddlers strapped into it.

Is there a better way to bridge the retard-gap?

Well, I wouldn't call you so much a retard as a low-information voter. No need to insult someone when they can simply educate themselves. There is always hope for someone like you, and this is where you can start.

Look into Obama Administration's scandals over the past 8 years (making a deal with Iran which pretty much lets it make a nuclear bomb, and lying about negotiating with "moderates" over there, IRS-as-Stasi scandal, NSA expanded spying scandal, sacrificing Americans on American soil in Benghazi and lying about it for weeks, reporter spying, keeping the press out of the White House, violating judge's immigration orders, suppressing our border enforcement laws, destabilizing the Middle East, the VA scandal, creating a new Cold War with Russia, removing Cuba from state terror sponsor list, repeatedly inciting racial division and attacks on police, shitting on America in his speeches overseas, etc), and not just the ones covered by Pravda- sorry, I meant CNN or Reuters.

Look into his past of 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of fascist, anti-Semite Jeremiah Wright, who blessed his wedding, and his other father figure, the radical commie Frank Marshall Davis. Listen to him morally equating socialism and capitalism, and cover for the world's most militant, backward religion time and time again, all the while posing as secular.

Then step away from the media soundbytes which compress Trump's message into two words. Watch a complete speech of his. See the man who speaks off the cuff, and yet channels the common sense that has long been gone from our government. An energetic, charismatic man with a heart and street smarts, a man with a message so much more positive than anything Obama has ever droned off his teleprompter.

A man who, despite vicious attacks from the media, which programmed low-information voters like yourself to hate him, and attacks from popular conservatives and even Fox News, outmaneuvered his political competition, outmaneuvered the press, and is outmaneuvering Hillary Clinton.

These are the qualities we need in a Commander-in-Chief. What we don't need, is someone who is knowingly importing Muslim radicals into our country, which essentially makes Obama the biggest homophobe in American history. If you can't connect those particular dots, look up Wikipedia and Pew research statistics on what percentage of Muslims, similarly imported into France, Britain, Germany, UK etc, and even the ones already here, believe that homosexuality is a sin, what percentage believe in violent jihad and Sharia Law, what IS Sharia Law, etc.

Hopefully this will help you in your goal. Get informed, and godspeed.

I will buy any product made by a Hillary/Obama/Bernie supporter, if the product is actually good.

Even though I completely disagree with your political views, I will fight for your right to have them, and all that jazz.

This used to be a liberal motto, no? Sometime a long time ago, I guess

I mean, if Oculus Rift had a boot-up logo saying "TRUMP 2016", I would perfectly understand the "outrage". But it doesn't.

I always thought the conservative cries to stop supporting various Hollywood people "with your wallet" were crazy, too. They're good at acting, I like their movies, they are just people and have a right to stupid opinions, now leave me alone.

I guess everyone's an outraged virtue signaler these days. Not sure how much virtue is in doing that, though.

Obama isn't a massive bigot. Trump is. People hate Trump because Trump hates people.

Obama got plenty of hatred, including loads from racists like Trump.

So Trump jokes that he would date his daughter. Or he calls some woman a pig.

Meanwhile Obama imports unreformed Muslims who believe that women are a subservient class, and homosexuality is a sin. A good (double-digit) percentage of those Muslims believe in Sharia Law specifically, aka stoning gays and clitoral mutilation.

You think I am being dramatic or exaggerating? The data on Muslims is supported by multiple polls. While most of the imported Muslims are (supposedly) moderate (and yet still their wives look like ninjas in public), a significant percentage is simply incompatible with SOCIALLY LIBERAL Western Values.

30+% of Muslims that France let in, believe that violent jihad is an appropriate response to someone "offending" Islam.

Britain has "No-Go" zones for non-Muslims. This religion, which comes with a bonus governing structure (Sharia Law) is the hardest to assimilate, and is responsible for the majority of current armed conflicts around the world.

This is because Islam is 500 years younger than Christianity, another Abrahamic religion which went through a similar violent radical period. And yet nobody can just "fix it" and propel Islam 500 years into the future, because there is no magic wand.

Trump is the one trying to put the brakes on the Muslim import process until we have a vetting process which isn't just smoke and mirrors. Syrian infrastructure is in shambles, so there are no records to check, and Obama's minions are not going to subject anyone to real psychological testing. Obama actually refuses to use the term "radical Islam", period.

That Muslim who killed 50 gays in Orlando night club? Not an Islamic terrorist, according to Obama.

So... one person is knowingly importing a good deal of violent homophobes and oppressors of women. The other is trying to stop it.

Remember that big scandal about the priests molesting children? Even though vast majority of them did no such thing, would you like to start indiscriminately importing thousands MORE priests from under the same general umbrella into the country, without any psychological or prior-crime screening, guaranteeing -for certain- that you'll have dozens of sexual predators traumatizing children for life?

What, you say? Yes, you would?



Mind you, the percentage of radical (or rather, "serious") Muslims, to one degree or another, is much higher than the percentage of perverted priests in the Christian church (which is 4%).

Based on his actions, Obama is actually the biggest homophobe, anti-feminist bigot in the country. He signed the equality of marriage act (because it was highly visible and showered him in praise), and yet he is purposely failing to protect the gay community.

Nothing Trump said or did even compares to the scale of damage that Obama is doing. And hopefully the LGBT population at least starts to wake up and see who really is on their side.

Stop only paying attention to words. That's how you are manipulated. Anyone can stand at the podium and spout demagogy about "fairness", "Islamophobia" and any other trigger words that you've been automatically programmed to react to.

Look at the person's actions, and the data. That's how you start thinking for yourself.
