2. Re: Saturday Tech Bits Linux Sep 18, 2016, 08:31 Bub
 
I ran a non profit's webserver and various database servers using Linux for about 15 years.

This article reinforces what I learned in that time:

1. A successful Linux install on X number of boxes is a crap shoot. It the install fails to work with any component (video, sound, keyboard, mouse, etc.) stop, and try a different make, year and model of biege box.

2. Once you have a successful install, try installing your target application. If any do not work out of the box. Start over with a new box.

3. Once you have a successful install and an install of a working version of your desired app. Put it in production and never, ever, apply any updates to the core or the app. Updates are more likely to trash your system than any security risk.

4. Do not under any circumstance add more than one application to a working system. One box, one distro, one application, or you are courting disaster as applications can and do make incompatible system changes that will trash the system.

I have bought all the Dreamcar Racing Flash games, and play Dream Car Racing Evo more than most of my Steam titles.

I really hope this makes the transition to 3D without requiring a full blown gaming rig.

F2P games need some kind of labeling provided in all advertising which lists cash shop and microtransaction items and their cost.
Things like how much in game currency does 1 US dollar buy. What are the prices of the most popular items in the cash shop etc.

Calling an online MMO free to play is more like calling a casino free to enter.

Dawn of War I was a real jewel and I loved how it played. A really fun RTS. You could play at any pace you wanted and enjoy the game.

Dawn of War II is a what happens when some middle manager gets word of market research that shows how many people are playing MOBAS, and decides to remold DOW game play to be more like that, small maps, restrictive lane like 'on rails' type progression across the map, and lastly micro managed maniac clicking twitch fest boss fights.

Looks like III is even more lane like and fast paced. Yuk.

Guess you have not been aware that a large part of the east coast and Florida have been getting beaten up by a Hurricane causing power outages, and disconnects.

Or perhaps you have never lived in a place with really crappy internet service where you can count on x number of disconnects each week as a matter of fact.

Don't immediately think someone who disconnects is a tool.

36. What ever happened to Shareware? Sep 1, 2016, 07:58 Bub
 
I thought one of the most successful marketing methods was how the original Doom, Descent, and Duke Nukem basically gave out free copies of the full first several levels. That was confidence in their product and you knew when you paid for the full game what your were getting.

I guess that's what happens from when you move from making games because you love them and want them to be great to moving to corporate 'lets only market to the masses' mindset, forget enthusiasts, lets just rope in as many clods as we can.

21. CTP - Cannon Fodder to Play Sep 1, 2016, 07:35 Bub
 
There has been a recent move by several new games and now the old pros are joining in with this gambit.

Become cannon fodder to play. You can play for free if your willing to play at a disadvantage so that veteran paying players have more easy targets to harvest.

Get out there and slave away at making whales content.

News Comments > World of Warcraft Legion Launched
14. Re: Legion Bait and Switch Aug 30, 2016, 18:38 Bub
 
Blizzard implied in their PR that the new Class Trials feature would allow you to try out any class, any specialization with the option to boost the toon if you decided to.

What is online now limits you to one specialization per class, so for instance if you wanted to try a Fire Mage, you can not, as that specialization is greyed out on the selection screen. It is as if they are trying to force people to try out unpopular specializations.

It implies that you won't be able to switch specializations during the trial, but only after you complete the training for the one allowed specialization and the Broken Shores intro quests and have finalized and boosted the character.

I am not a happy camper about this. I was really getting bored with WOW and the only thing in Legion that did seem like the same old, same old WOW and rehashed copies of other MMO memes we all have seen before and can do in our sleep, was the Class Trails which I had hoped would finally allow one to know what a class was like with most of it's skills.

They don't give any timeline as to when or even if you will ever be able to start a trial in any specialization.

I have a ticket in with my Blizzard account, asking them to tell me if and when you will be able to try any specializtion in Class Trials and if not I want a refund.

2. Re: etc., etc. Lowest Ranking Video Aug 25, 2016, 08:01 Bub
 
I think the person who went to get the 0 ranking most interesting observation was the people got more toxic at about the bottom 20-30 percent range.

It coincides with my view that the people who get toxic in multiplayer games are in truth some of the least skilled and most clueless about how to play and then transfer their frustration and rage towards other players rather than admit they can't play well.

It's time to stop using the Korporate sales droid word micro-transactions.

There is nothing micro about having to spend hundreds of dollars in a single game, for more abilities, gear, or cosmetics just to fit in and be competitive.

A more realistic term is wallet gouging pay to win scheme.

I saw some early videos of this game so I visited the website and found it was really not for me. Pay to Win all the way.

It's like Robosport plus a purchase price and pretty much mandatory power/gear micro-transactions.

News Comments > Evening Tech Bits
8. Re: Evening Tech Bits Aug 25, 2016, 07:36 Bub
 
My Win7 rig gave up the ghost recently, so I go a new better/faster yada yada with Win10 already installed.

Ha, allreaday installed? Open the box, plug it in, and 2 hours of updates and various privacy invasions designed to look like dialog boxes.

The first week it ran great but then it started freezing for 10 seconds every minute and a half. I thought it was the new game I was playing, which did run faster than on my old computer, but never with freezes. A week later it turns out MS accidentally had the built in video game recording software running in stealth mode all the time.
Once that got fixed, after a 45 minute wasting update, no freezes.

The next week the web cam stopped working, until a week or so later when another time consuming update fixed it.

The next week Win10 successfully restored a few files from my primary Win7 back up. A few days later, it deemed that back up to be mesed up and 4 hours of contact with MS and installing the 'latest build' and the back up is permanently inaccessible.

With so many others getting dumped on this week with the total freeze up I am thankful that one passed me by, but I now have a system that I know I can never really rely on as MS's constant spyware, and telemetry seem to be the soft-wares only really tested and proven feature.

First it was Win 10's GVR (game video recorder) that the update turned on in the background, giving anyone not running a souped up game rig, looking at 5 second freeze ups every minute.

Then the update hoses up every web cam.

Something is seriously wrong with Microsoft, and it seems to be getting worse.

Reminds me of the whole life span of floppy disks.

Like mini floppies, where for several years they had to equip at least one mini floppy drive and a USB thumb drive port. Eventually everyone adopted using thumbdrives, and no one complained when the floppies were no longer offered.

Still, that whole marketing droid hack job of baloney was pretty laughable. Sound quality, when all you have is a volume control?
Effects when all you have is on/off toggles? Audio on fondle slabs is still in the dark ages.

This Faux Political Correctness attitude that has swept campuses, like Ayn Rand once did, has gotten out of control and now seeps into Blues News comments.

These mental Luddites think they have the right to ban anyone or thing that they disagree with and will rant and argue like spoiled children trying to get their way. Please go read the US constitution, and while your at it, look up what Freedom of Speech means.

Not to mention Win 10 still does not have a it's promised media player, or the fact that once it is delivered, Win 10 is capable of deleting or preventing from working any non Microsoft media player.

So glad I have a full set of Win 7 recovery CDS.
