  1. A couple additions...

    Stopping by to congratulate you again on some fine additions. They work very nicely and I believe it takes most of the guesswork out of making teams more even.
  2. A couple additions...

    I love these additions! Thanks.
  3. Instagib ca server

    +1 for Freeze tag but will give instagib a try.
  4. Happy Christmas

    Merry Christmas to my fellow gamers. Enjoy the time off with the loved ones.
  5. Lan party

    That was kinda the plan...I was hoping I could woop ass, but Q4 feels so awkward. The railgun felt especially weird - there was like a delay between firing and actual shot that made it almost useless. Maybe, it was our setup. Some of them are no strangers to FPS as they play CS-GO. So it's not like they were total noobs either. QL would be best, but Q3A could be a solid B plan.
  6. Lan party

    Just thought I'd let you all know how the lan party went. We were 14, played Quake 4 on a dedicated server. Played mostly death matches and capture the flag, there's no CA in q4. We had a blast, got my ass kicked around (I will say in my defence that game play is very different from ql) and they want to do it again next semester.

    That's quite a setup!
  8. Lan party

    I tried dtblud's work around for darkness, and maybe it's my setup or my version of q3 but, though it may have been a little better, it's still difficult to spot the enemy. So it looks like they'll be cutting their teeth on quake 4. They've already tested a scaled down 4 vs 4 battle on the lab computers and they had a blast. Too bad there's no clan arena, I find tdm less fun. So thx for the suggestions, looking forward to the main event in less than 2 weeks.
  9. After owning this new monitor 1 week, I can whole heatedly recommend it. It's a fast TN panel (1ms), gsync works great and colours are very good once fine tuned. It's really nice for everything but exceptional for gaming. At $450 cdn it's a steal for a fast gsync monitor. One thing you should know when buying a gsync monitor is that the connections are limited to display port and HDMI - no DVI or VGA (?) whereas Freesync monitors often offer more options. It's not a problem with my GTX 1070, it has plenty of display ports. Only drawback, quake live is so much better now that I can't stop playing.

    Thx blud. Will give it a try. It almost makes up for you hijacking my other thread :-)

    Thx, didn't know about them. Cool store!
  12. Lan party

    Someone had a copy of quake 3, but the maps were dark as hell. Players were hard to spot and nothing in the in game settings seem to work to make visibility better (I was getting destroyed by the bots at "bring it on" level :-) ). I imagine there's some way to make the maps more playable within the config files, but I don't know. Quake 4 has more elaborate graphic settings and the maps are much brighter, out of the box. The old quakes seem so slow compared to ql. Lan game is in 3 weeks so we will use the time to experiment and time permitting, squeeze in a wee bit of actual school work
  13. OK I just realized I wasn't playing with gsync in ql all this time. I thought I was, because I had enabled everything, but I found out that you can have an overlay displayed on the monitor to indicate wether you're actually using gsync mode or not. Turns out ql only works in gsync mode when in full screen only and I played windowed. So all this time I was raving about my new gsync monitor I was simply experiencing, for the first time, a fast gaming monitor. But now that I've tried gsync I like it even more. I believe aiming is easier because everything is smoother.

    Well, the students got their hands on a copy of quake 4 (bleh) and now they want to setup a dedicated server or 2 in our network lab and have at it. I told them it was their funeral...
  15. This is something I noticed on more than one occasion. If I'm playing ql and I have another monitor open on Netflix inside a browser, I will get stuttering in ql, even if the video is paused or has been paused for a long time. I'd never noticed this with my old non gaming monitor, but then again with my old monitor stuttering was the norm. It did the same with the Acer monitor I returned, so it's most likely not monitor related. I have fast Internet and have monitored the network and traffic is the same and far from saturated with or without Netflix open. I f I close the browser, all stuttering disappears. Nothing on the computer seems maxed out or even close (memory, CPU, etc). Just wondering if anyone else has had that happen.
