I set it to the highest graphics, too. I did the same with Crysis 2. It's fun having an epic computer.
I can't wait for the 3rd party graphics overhauls to be released. I could also get some custom water shaders to pretty things up a bit more. Also can't wait for the dev tools, I want my own special mansion with tonnes of weapon racks and mannequins!

Also I'm making a quick assassination in front of peoples faces video :badass:

Edit: here's how I play http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRiUHHHAzyY

Ah thats nothing. Wait till you get the perk further along called "Assassin". 15x sneak damage with a dagger, working out for about 30x damage dual-wielding.

Thats about twice the damage you would get sneak attacking with dual-wield one handed swords, axes etc.
Ahaha yeah, I went with that. I got 30x damage with shrouded gloves and one dagger, I like Mehrune's Razor and Blade of Woe. Also with 100 sneak and all perks, you can perform the 30x crit when ever you want by just ducking in front of an enemy and clicking. Very imbalanced. Great fun though!

Here are some screens I just took with some new custom shaders I got. Ultra settings, everything maxed.

I've decided I'm going assassin/thief build. One of the sneak perks gives you a 6 times crit on a surprise attack with a one handed weapon. Sounds pretty cool.

in bunny hop Post #300251
Bunny hopping is still possible, you just can't gain ridiculous speed like you used to be able to back in WON days.

To bunny hop without a script, most players use "bind mwheelup +jump" or you can use down. Also you need to learn how to air strafe. Basically you don't hold W, but instead you move like a snake, while holding A and move the mouse to the left then alternating to holding D move it to the right and back and forth.

If you need to boost your speed you hold duck, and release it right before hitting the ground.

EDIT: zeeba-G No body can do the edge-bug or jump-bug(this one is when you let go of duck just before hitting the ground to avoid damage) consistently, it's incredibly hard and requires fluke precision.

One other note, most newbs don't know, but if a wall is above around 120 units, running 10 units near the edge will apply edge friction and slow you down, bhopping avoids this friction, so does count-jumping, an advanced KZ technique.

Pretty certain it's a Call of Duty mod based on what I can see.

Looks mildly entertaining, I wouldn't pay for it though. Yes the animations look a bit undetailed.

The texture pack should allow for widest use of themes. The texture pack you're posting Archie is quite good, but I would feel very restricted in terms of creativity. Perhaps try and include more material types and less decal and colour variations of the same material types.

What I still don't understand is how they stored the 32 trillion coloured atoms, has this been addressed in the videos? I didn't hear anything about it.

Also I'd like to hear more from Carmack, in that quote above he hasn't really addressed any actual reasons as to why a demo is so far off a finished product, suitable for games.

Apparently the demo from Euclideon doesn't use the GPU at all, and is completely software rendered.

That's the point I was trying to make Archie, numbers always make an argument seem more valid. After reading that though, my belief that this is a load of crap has been reinforced a fair bit.

This company is claiming that they can run a particle rendering system that has no particle count limitations.

How do you even store that much data practically?

Honestly, I just don't care about this game. And I probably played more CS than any of you. I was a real addict at one point, would play about 8 hours a day when I wasn't at school.

I will probably get a nonsteam version just to check out what changes they made to the game.

I have never had sleep paralysis. Apparently you can induce by ignoring the urge to roll over when you're going to sleep. It is a mechanism to check if you are asleep, and if you stay still, you trick your brain into believing you are asleep and you enter REM sleep.

I once had a recent dream where it was dark, and I said "Is this a dream?" Then I woke it. It was weird.
Not entirely sure if you're just being your humorous self, or if you're being honest. For many people one of the first hurdles of learning to lucid dream is to stay dreaming once you have figured out you are in a dream. Most people tend to just wake up as soon as they realise.

I've been taking 5-hydroxytryptophan, basically boosts serotonin levels. It helps me have dreams every night, just as a personal note of mine, the chemical is more so used for depression. Although I feel my dreams are a little too bizarre to share. They almost always pertain to current personal issues, but they don't exactly make the most sense.

I like it, it's not fantastic, but it's good. Computer boots in 10 seconds which is nice. Cstriker write speed almost doesn't matter because if you're writing to your SSD a lot you're doin' it wrong. SSD's are all about read speed in my opinion.

If you can easily afford $100-200 for an SSD I'd recommend doing it. Also waiting for them to be developed a bit more will help. They'll be much better in the near future.

My $110AUD SSD scores 170mb/s read and 60mb/s write speed.

If you really wanted some speeds to boast about, I'd go for an SSD + raid 0 combo.

I play Heroes of Newerth. It's just a DotA clone. It's a pretty decent game, being completely stolen from DotA, but it has some network issues. The features they implemented really make it a worth while transition from DotA, such as stat tracking, reconnection capabilities, rebindable keys, and not nearly as many leavers. It's definitely worth the 30 dollars it costs, but I wouldn't be surprised if it went free to play after DOTA2 is released.
